    The "I could not have been more wrong" Thread [football only]

    Predictions that you have made or opinions that you held which were proven totally wrong....

    Saying that Le Tallec and Pongolle will prove to be better signings for us than Cronaldo for the Mancs (summer 2003)

    Told people that we will never win anything with Didi Hamann in midfield (2004)

    Telling my then girlfriend that Ronaldinho is overrated (2003)

    Saying El Hadji Diouf will help us win the league (2002)

    Telling my then girlfriend that Xavi won't amount to anything (2001)

    Thinking Leeds will win the league within 3 years (1999)

    Telling my then girlfriend that the signing of Saviola will help you win the CL within 2 years and that Saviola will be the best player of the decade. (2001).


    So what predictions have you made in the past which couldn't have been more wrong?!

    Predicted Barca losing Yaya would be like Madrid losing Makelele, Busquets will suck balls and we will be doomed ... wrong

    Predicted Balotelli will become a great footballer and is better than Pato ( early days when both just came into the scene ) ... wrong

    Predicted Messi will only score 39 goals this season ... Wrong

    Predicted Jose will play attacking football in the Santiago vs Barca ... Por Que?

    That one really, really, went terribly wrong
    Alfredo Di Stéfano, Real Madrid's greatest ever player and the honorary president, spoke out. "Barcelona's football was simply brilliant," he said in his weekly column. "Their superiority was there for the whole planet to see: the whites were cornered all game. Barcelona play football and dance. They treat the ball with adoration and respect, almost nurturing it. To see this team in action is a delight."

    I remember thinking Larsson would be a signing that will probably never play and would be considered a flop.

    I thought Jerome Rothen would become the worlds best player. (2004)

    I think I can be forgiven though because he was shit for PSG So there were questions about his temperament in europe at that time.

    I thought Matias De Frederico would be a star in Europe by now....

    also Maxi Moralez another one I thought was bound for greatness.. I guess he is just to short but doing very well at Velez

    Gai Assulin really let me down I was wanking (no homo) over him

    O and I thought Andres D'alessandro would lead Argentina for many years.... shame always been my fav player and a nice person once you get to know him
    "I pass and I move, I help you, I look for you, I stop, I raise my head, I look and, above all, I open up the pitch...The one who has the ball, is the master of the game...That's the school of Joan Vilà, of Albert Benaiges, of Johan Cruijff, of Pep Guardiola" - Xavi Hernandez

    These are just recent ones...

    Ibrahimovic would be a top Barca player for years to come
    Bojan would have a breakthrough season this year
    Mourinho/Madrid would be more of a threat to us this year than they have been
    Xavi would finally get the Ballon d'Or

    Torres would not leave Liverpool for Chelsea
    Liverpool would finish bottom half of the table this season
