The starting XI which were destined for greatness but failed miserably

Not everyone can be the next Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi, but Jesus Christ, if you’re on six figures a week at least make it look like you aren’t a three legged Bambi on ice. Some of these players looked destined for greatness, but ended up in a big old pile of irrelevancy. Shame.

Now, yes, this is potentially the most ridiculous formation in football history with something of a 2-5-3. To be honest, there’s just more hype surrounding wingers, midfielders and strikers. Hardly surprising.
