most bizarre Charlton signing

Has to be the legend that was Omar Pouso the man who scored that superb goal for Uruguay against England. Made a single appearance for us and then disappeared - not sure why we signed him?
There have been numerous 'exciting' signings that haven't worked out and it's often the unheralded ones that do the business. Kermo was certainly the one that shocked us all.

    Traore & Faye for a combined fee of 4 million. It made no sense then and still doesn't.

    I could list quite a few but I'm sure any consensus opinion in arriving at a top 10 would show at least 8 of them took place in the last 2 years.

    Don't think he did anything other than sit on the bench. It probably goes without saying that he's a Belgian.

    or

    Alessandro Santos aka Alex, the Japanese Brazilian. He'd pitched up at the club but couldn't get a work permit so the deal fell through. Probably just as well.

    I remember Keith Peacock raving about his aerial ability, that he'd never seen a player 'hang' in the air like Bagheri. I wasn't at his one and only appearance at Ipswich, but I saw him once at Sparrow's Lane. And that's something, Goddamit.

    Surely only signed by RM to get up the nose of perma-tanned uber-ponse, stalker magnet, brother of mobile phone tycoon, bequiffed, then current palarse chairman Slime-on Jordan

    David Tuttle. Most of the players since the Belgians have been squatting.

    A lot of these signings aren't bizarre at all. Yes they flopped with us, but at the time I don't remember complaints about JFH, Scott Sinclair, Blomqvist, Cole etc. They all seemed reasonable buys. Similarly, a lot of the non league signings were low cost punts, so again reasonable gambles.

    Simonsen was bizarre for being far to good and expensive for us.

    Should be a double barrelled name. Imagine that one the back of a shirt Small-Fanni
