The Premier League title starts as a six-horse race, a substantial part of the reason why the English top-tier is arguably the most competitive in Europe. Six teams hold this division by the scruff of the neck both financially and tactically.

A look at the League table tells the full story. Despite their stuttering form at the wrong end of the top six, Manchester United remain 11 points ahead of seventh place Wolves.

Tottenham aside, the group exercises its sizable financial muscle regularly in the transfer market. Often, their investments add to the league's lustre. Almost as often, however, they don't. Sir Alex Ferguson doesn't want to be asked, "How's the wife? And the Bebe?" Chelsea prefers its supporters forget the name Winston Bogarde. Signing the Dutchman was not the start of a beautiful friendship.

Spending big on a player is a gamble that doesn't always pay off. Here are a half-dozen investments, one apiece, that the Premier League top six wish they hadn't made.
