Today, Juventus midfielder, the Brazilian Felipe Melo, was named the 2009 winner of the Golden Bin, awarded to the biggest flop in Italy's premier football league, Serie A. The award is given out by by an Italian sports radio show and typically lampoons the top players in the league. Here are your top ten results.

Naturally, Melo took exception to his award and blamed it on sour grapes coming from Florence fans who were upset by his move to Juventus this season. Juventus has not played up to its typically lofty standards this season. It currently sits in third place, six points behind Inter, and lost yesterday to recently promoted Bari. Some fans blame the signing of Melo for its current problems.
