    Bump, any updates to this now the season is all but over?

    Going to put Cresswell, Bojan, Can, Bertrand, Fabregas, Sanchez and Herrera in the 'good' category.

    Falcao, Mangala, Balotelli, Lovren and everyone QPR signed are the worst.
    Alderweireld in the good for sure. Andy Robertson at Hull, too.

    Jutkiewicz was a Championship player signed for £1.25m as an upfront fee. Fair enough, he hasn't exactly delivered, but he hasn't been atrocious and doesn't really deserve a tag of one of the worst signings of the season.

    Interestingly, though, Burnley had a touch of genius in signing Boyd. Great influence on their relegation battle.

    It may be harsh to call him one of the worst signings of the season but he was one of Burnley's most expensive signings and rarely starts now and will play even less now Vokes is back. £1.25 million is a lot of money to a club like Burnley.

    Agreed. Could've been worse, though, when Cardiff were spunking £7m on Cornelius last summer, or Ulloa's cost to Leicester.

    Jutkiewicz wasn't good enough for the championship and most Boro fans were glad to see that back of him. So it was surprising to see him go to a Premier League club. Although I would like to see Burnley stay up as I'm always one for the underdogs.

    Pretty sure Juke was only ever signed to be back up, he was never going to start every game and score goals. It's like Liverpool and Lambert.

    This was the view I had of him. He is ok, not terrible but I wouldn't have him as back up in the prem. thought he'd go to another top six championship club tbh.

    8m is a drop in the water for our owners and given he's got 9/10 goals in about 20 starts, he looks pretty good value for money, so that's a pretty poor example

    7 goals in 20 starts. Five of which came before mid-September when you were on a decent run. He got a consolation against Villa and Spurs respectively since then. Hardly good value for money when the likes of Ings, Austin are bagging regularly.

    You telling me that United intended on signing a world class striker on 300k a week to sit on the bench?
