12 Transfers from 2014 Summer Window Destined for Failure - If the memoirs aren't already being penned (they very well might be), someone should think about securing a book patent for The Wacky Adventures of Emmanuel Frimpong, whose mazy career path took him to Russia this summer.
After just four months with the club, Frimpong was released by Barnsley upon their relegation to League One, and of course F.C. looked at his potential signing with a salivating grin.
The once highly tipped Arsenal prospect and cousin of grime artist Lethal Bizzle has always been a character of intrigue, whether it be due to his outspoken social media presence or booting things in the face of Rafael van der Vaart.
Perhaps the Russian Premier League recruit will prove us wrong, but it's difficult to imagine the midfielder really getting to grips with language in the Republic of Bashkortostan, not to mention the other dozens of hurdles before him.
