First half – clockwise 9 In 1996, this striker convinced Graeme Souness that he came highly recommended by World Footballer of the year George Weah. He claimed he had it all - he could dribble past the best defenders and had pace to burn.

Souness gambled by taking Matt Le Tissier off and throwing on his new "star". The substitute missed an open goal and lasted just 16 minutes before being hauled off by his furious manager. Funnily enough, he was never seen in a red and white shirt again. He routinely figures in lists of bad players or transfers. (Visual Next Slide)
