They haven't researched it too well. There are some decent-ish signings in there compared to some of the crap we've seen at our place. Bernard Lama for example was a top keeper.

How do this little lot avoid a dishonourable mention ? Titi Camara, Ragnvald Soma and the bloke Twitchy signed , presmably via a brown envelope, to pay Bournemouth's VAT bill. Scott Mean that was btw. And the bloke we brought in on loan who spent all his time here on the treatment table (Twitchy again). Christian Bassila.

But we sure have brought in some wrong uns over the years have we not. :lol:

Could have been a top 100.alot on that list I'd wiped from my memory. Lama was kinda decent though.

Another good shout.

I suppose it comes down to how we define ‘weird’.

I’m sure that there are a few others if we put a little thought into it.

Half of these signings are truly embarrassing.

I'm not sure about weird. A lot of those are punts, or attempts to eke some final mileage out of once very decent players.

Boogers ranks #1 for weirdness. Joey Beauchamps signing remorse was pretty odd too.

Communism deprives no man of the power to appropriate the products of society; all that it does is to deprive him of the power to subjugate the labour of others by means of such appropriations.
