Top 10 Chelsea Players That Simply Didn’t Make the Grade

Every football team gets them at some point in their life but it seems that Premier League teams managed to drag them in like they are few to a penny, footballing flops.

Chelsea would like to think that they weren’t in that list but lets be honest for a moment and relive the horror signings that have been and gone over the recent (and not so recent) years.

10. Adrian Mutu – Brought into the club based on his ability to score goals but once finally in a blues shirt he did nothing but moan and get wrecked on illegal substances.

9. Winston Bogarde – Was thought to be one of the best defenders in the world at the time but the guy leaked more goals than any other defender known to man. He failed to possess the quality that seemed to have been sold to them at the time of scouting.

8. Chris Sutton – You have to feel for Sutton, he was playing well and then it soon went out the window the minute that he pulled on a Chelsea shirt. Not sure where his ability went at that moment but no wonder they were looking for a refund the moment they played with him once.

7. Mario Stanich – Well not too sure if this is one that played himself into this list or if the lack of faith that came with the poor performances that seemed to follow him about left him cleaning boots rather than pulling his on.

6. Glen Johnson – Although he is considered to be one of the brightest England football stars today, his time at Chelsea definitely left a bitter taste in the mouth of fans all over the world. He seemed to have a footballing mind but when it came to using it he failed. That said, now that he is at Liverpool he is finding his stride nicely.

5. Joe Cole – Only in the list due to the fact that he couldn’t break into the first team for any length of time. Could be due to the fact that the managers just didn’t rate him but something simply wasn’t working with him at the club. Great player but simply not effective for the Blues.

4.  Jody Morris – Signed for the club as a young lad and never seemed to find his feet within the professional game. Seemed to be more at home after his career lead him to Leeds United.

3. Filipe Oliveira – Was portrayed as the worlds next superstar but turned out to be nothing other than a drain on the wage budget. Just like opening a box to find it completely empty.

2. Gael Kakuta – Huge scandal surrounded his purchase as he agreed terms with Manchester United but then pulled a u-turn to join Chelsea instead. The FA investigated the deal and place Chelsea into a transfer embargo, leaving the club unable to purchase players during a transfer window.

1. Andriy Shevchenko – Huge name that was brought into the club by the new chairman after he threw money at the player until he couldn’t bank anymore of it. Proven goal scorer within the Italian Serie A league but the moment his feet landed in London he seemed to forget what scoring a goal was all about. £32 million paid and for me that was £33 million too much!

Have i missed any? feel free to rant and rave below
