Every English Premier League team has some strange signings now and then.
How Juan Sebastian Veron's appalling two years at Old Trafford convinced Chelsea to shell out £15 million is still one of the greatest mysteries of world football. And what about Francis Jeffers' move to Arsenal? With manager Arsene Wenger normally so good at judging talent, perhaps his football-dar was experiencing a malfunction the day he signed the striker.
