Just remembered Emanuele Giaccherini

One of those made up players that played for Sunderland and, inexplicably, for Italy at major International tournaments

Loïc Remy popped up somewhere the other day, apparently he played for Chelsea??

Vaguely remember him being at Newcastle

And QPR. That mental QPR season will be an absolute goldmine for this.

Palace as well and Chelsea

Was that when they were paying Park Ji Sung and Bosingwa a billion pounds a week to sit on the bench?

In the course of three seasons Redknapp bought, sold, bought, sold and bought him again.
