    Biggest FC Barcelona flops

    For starters here`s the lineup I found:




    I would nominate Robert Prosinecki. (probably one of the best midfielders of his time, even won the Champions League with Crvena Zvezda) Scored 2 goals in his FC Barcelona career but I expected so much more from him.

    What about Mark Hughes and Overmars?

    There are alot of players. Zambrotta was a huge flop imo. Came as one of the best, if not the best wingback in the world, and played no where near that level.. That Bilbao guy as well, who sat on the bench for 3 season, can't even remember his name..

    Quaresma and petit definitely. Gerard wasnt really a flop. He was a utility player and lets be honest did we ever think he was going to be more than that?

    Albertini

    santi ezquerro. That was such a shame. We were crying out for a goal-scoring CF when all our other cf's were injured..yet rijkaard continued to put the proven-la-liga goal scorer on the bench. Madness!

    We paid a lot of money for a player who was the star of a Valencia side that reached the CL final a year earlier. I doubt we wanted him originally as a utility player. Albertini on the other hand was a free transfer so I dont see why it's a big flop.

    The only madness is your never ending belief in Ezquerro. He was given chances. He wa shit. Never Barca material in a million years.

    chances? I dont think playing him 3 games a season counts as 'chances'.

    God its great to have u here! Its funny, i used to think we agreed on everything. Now we dont agree on anything at all.

    By the way i love your profile pic and signature. Well chosen!

    It is amazing.All those names and yet no one mentioned the lazy magician Juan Roman Riquelme.
    I doubt there has been a bigger flop in recent years.
    But then again for all his amazing talents Riquelme has achieved so little.

    It wasnt really his fault..however i yeah i guess he was a flop when you consider the money paid and what we got out of him.
