You know, those players who just seem to disappear off the face of the Earth. Could be past or present. Could be solved by a Google search, but where's the fun in that?

Jimmy Bullard is one that springs to mind. Francis Jeffers. That Brazilian forward Middelsbrough had, he came from Twente I think, Alves?

Anyway, carry on chaps.

Adriano retired an alcoholic aged 30 didn't he?
Was supposed to be destined for greatness.

Neil Mellor deserves a shout out for his winner against Le Arse 10 years ago :)

Craig Gordon.

Record price for a goalkeeper by an EPL club at the time. Although he is having a bit of a career revival at Celtic.

Adriano was brilliant for a few years, absolutely destroyed it at Parma and then Inter for a bit. When his father died though is when his career went on a downward spiral.

Good shout, playing somewhere in Scotland now isn't he?

Malcolm Christie springs to mind. Enjoyed watching him play at Boro. Then vanished. Finished football whilst still quite young.

Christian Karembeau (spelling?). Loved his death stares at the camera during the national anthems in France 98.

Yury Zhirkov springs to mind. Spent a few years at Chelsea, won the PL and the FA Cup with us and will always remember him for that brilliant goal against Spartak in the CL.

Asamoah Gyan I remember playing a big part in Ghana's run to the 2010 WC quarter finals. I think he had a stint at Sunderland previously hasn't he? Don't know where he's playing now.
