Well, I remember thinking Balotelli might be a good signing.
Victor Wanyama. Juan Veron, before he went to ManU. Tony Yeboah. Oh yeah, Harry Maguire! (The other 3 were actually not really bad.)
For a truly shameful one, when it looked like Stevie might go to Chelsea, I do remember thinking - well he's been a bit injury prone lately, maybe if they gave us a shitload of money plus Frank Lampard, it wouldn't be that bad! Dear god. (Just remember - I didn't have to admit that.)
