Okay, you guys need to define what constitutes a 'flop'.  A player like Schevchenko or Kaka who played amazingly for one or two major clubs previously only to make a move to a (usually different) league only to fail to adapt DOES NOT constitute a flop.

A flop in my book is someone who was hyped up to death from the back of one season or cup run, bought for big money, only to be discovered to be shite.

My nomination for Liverpool - El Hadji Diouf

Signed after a World Cup run for £10 million and was total bollocks.  Went a season as No 9 without scoring a single goal.

sorry mate but to call an injury ravaged and on the decline gaizka a flop is just wrong. you obviously don't know the man who fucked europe alongside claudio lopez and the rest of los ches.

Oh, but I remember him too well ... Sold to Lazio in the summer of 2001 (at the age of 27) for €48 million, loaned to Barca next summer, and then sold by Lazio to 'Boro in the summer of 2003 for €3.5 million ... If you look for the biggest flop of the past decade, Mendieta is definitely the one ...
The internet is a bad place - People like Mac Red are on it.
