I recently stumbled on have an article in the Mirror stating that Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh is one of the worst signings in recent history – pretty dire considering he was free. This got me to thinking, is he really that bad in comparison to some of the other howler signings made by Premier League clubs?
Sometimes players fail to make an impact because they cannot acclimatise to the style of the Premier League or the glorious weather in England – especially the north – other times it is the amount of injuries they sustain that hamper their performance, or the sheer amount of money that is paid for them which makes it virtually impossible for them to live up to expectations. We can all remember the classic horror signings such as Sergei Rebrov but here are some more recent signings that had fans despairing throughout the Premier League.
