Kamara and Aribo for buttons were very astute signings.   Paying money for Lafferty again was sheer folly.

Best : Kamara Worst : Grezda

It's difficult to say exactly as there's a lot of good signings for various reasons ;

Kamara was 50k (being touted at 30-million now).
Davis a freebie and his experience in European games has been invaluable. 
Barisic cost 1.5 million and we could probably get x10 that for him now.
McGregor and Arfield - good freebie's who's contributed so much to us.
Helander & Goldson are now our defensive rock (with the exception of Benfica the other night and Easter Road). Combined cost of about 7-million.

Might be controversial but I'd question the value in Defoe, given (I'm guessing) he's on a really high wage and doesn't get the chance to contribute as much as a player like him should do. I'm not saying he's a bad signing, just don't think the value-to-money spent ratio is there.

However, the worst has to go to Grezda. I don't think guys like Polster, Worrall, Ejaria, Lafferty, Stewart, Hastie, Barker, Edmundson, Macaulay, Ojo, Sadiq, Coulibaley etc were good signings either, but they are a combination of frees and loans. Grezda cost us 2-million.

Defoe definitely controversial, his goals per game time ratio is exceptional , the experience and standards he brings to the squad are excellent.

He's not a bad signing, I'm just not sure he's been a great signing for what we might have invested in him. 

Agreed, he was always going to be a bit part player of the squad, unfortunately age and injuries go hand in hand, uther wise he probably would have had more game time.
