Best of the bargain buys?

Recommended Posts


Some good replies - Joe Cole is a particularly good shout, as is Eider G..............

Interesting how many of the best value are defenders, suppose strikers and midfielders often cost lots more - but how many goals did Gazza or Ivan save, not counting the goals they also scored in big games.

If I had to pick one tho, it would have to be big Pete🧤

I took my stats from here:

http://www.bounder.friardale.co.uk/Appearances/Gp-Gz.htm

League 126 appearances with 54 goals,

Overall in all competitions,

177 Appearances with 78 goals. 

 

OK, but you omitted his 86 appearances as a substitute in that case ... (60 in the league) ... hence why I said "great but not quite THAT great ... "

We sold Michael Hector to Fulham for €8.9m??  😁

Technically he's still our player, but the transfer is to go through in January.

As far as names go, most the usual culprits have been named already so I thought I'd chime in with a name we haven't seen yet - Jimmy Floyd Hasselbank! 15m at the time, and went on to score 88 goals in 177 appearances

Good point and seems childish to criticise the site although perhaps goals scored as a sub would be good to know too.

Kante was a steal but sticking with the bargain aspect I gotta give it to Dave or Cahill. Cahill especially, wow. From Bolton to winning titles and playing for England. He was meant to be a bit of cover when we bought him if I remember correctly. That is the epitome of a bargain buy. 

Shout out to Hazard if we're talking pure ROI, feels like cheating tho.

Still reading the benefits

Reaping.

 

11m? 

Record goalscorer all those honours, now manager. Not even close for me.

Didn’t we pay a good chunk to bring him back as manager? Probably about £15mil all together. Still a f**king bargain!

Kante was an absolute steal, considering during that time the likes of Pogba were being bought for nearly a 100 million. 

Agree. What's crazy is we spent more money to buy Michy than on Kante in the same summer period.

The crazy thing about Kante was his release clause was actually £20m, so our bid of £32m was the highest at the time which they had no choice to accept. It goes to show most clubs didn't want to chance him after one good season.

Eidur Gudjohnson - 4m

Carlo Cudicini - Free

Frank Lampard - 11m

William Gallas - 6.2m

Joe Cole - 6.6m

Petr Cech - 7.1m

Michael Ballack - Free

John Obi Mikel - 4m

Branislav Ivanovic - 9.7m

Eden Hazard - 32m

Cesar Azpilicueta - 7m

N'Golo Kante - 32m

Good list, obi mikel ended up about 12 in the end though, because it went to a tribunal. 

Still a decent fee for so many years of service.
