I think this thread (and the ones that got away) are sooo unfair. You never know what a player would have turned out to be in a different team/league.

If this thread was around in 2016 salah would have made the list

I don't remember Pochettino being in the running. That would have been whilst he was at Espanyol?
I remember reading an article around the time of Hodgsons sacking that the owners really wanted this Jurgen Klopp fellow.

The article called him, "The German Arsene Wenger" !!

It does seem like he was always the owners top choice. Lucky enough for us, they got their man.

Nick Powell

I remember the hype surrounding him because of a few performances for Crewe. Then a host of clubs were interested, went to manure and his head/ego expanded, apparently didn't train hard and now signed for Stoke City for free at 25

Oh and anyone mention Lucas Neill yet? Pproduced a cuntish tackle on Carragher, acted as if he did nothing wrong and yet still managed to be heavily linked for a transfer here
