Not an old name but someone mentioned Kenwyne Jones the other day, had completely forgotten about him

 

One of those players you look at and wonder how on earth he's accumulated so much transfer fees over the years, Sunderland signed him for 10m didn't they and then sold him to Stoke for the same a few years later. Has a few good games at the start (usually against us) and then gets bored and just disappears to the bench.

 

Edit: Thinking back, weren't we linked to him when he was at Sunderland, they wanted too much for him and we then signed Heskey instead. Such great MON transfer targets back then!

I have actually! To Wembley stadium no less to watch England v kazaakhstan in a world cup qualifier, spent the day in a bar by Wembley drinking grolsch that was £3 a pint

Mind that was in 2009..

Roy Keane and Tony Pulis are not exactly the greatest transfer managers

Good one that actually, was scoring hatfuls for Dortmund in the Bundesliga and then played for Paraguay in 2010 World cup and then decided to go for a payday in Asia so went off the radar for a few years.

 

Think he's playing for a club in France now.

Massimo Macceroni (sp) Big money move, well for the time the transfer happened, from Italy to Boro. Flopped never heard of him since.

He scores now and again in Seria A but never developed in the striker he was threatening to be around the time he moved to Boro.

 

Silzard Nemeth was another one who was highly rated around the time he went to Boro, scored a few goals there and no idea where he went when he left them.

 

Edit: Just had a look at Nemeth's Wiki and his stats were better than I thought, was at Boro five years and pretty much scored 30 goals in 120 games so once every four games.
