With Aaron Lennon doing his very best Eeyore impression while posing as an Everton player for the first time this morning, we thought we’d take a timely look at ten other players who couldn’t have looked more miserable about joining a club if they tried – starting with another dour beauty from yesterday…
1. Robert Huth
“I could not be happier to be here in Leicest…I’ve made a terrible mistake”
2. Nicolas Anelka
Le Sulk doing his usual mard-arse shtick, made ten times worse by West Brom dubbing a ridiculously jaunty tune over the top…
3. Carl Jenkinson
There is a deep, dark fear in those eyes…

4. Marouane Chamakh
See what signing for West Ham can do to a man?
5. Stefan Jovetic
Couldn’t even be arsed to sort himself out with a Man City scarf…
6. Lukas Podolski
Escaping to his happy place.
7. Emmanuel Frimpong
Frimpong accompanied this picture of himself looking suitably nonplussed at joining Barnsley with a Tweet reading “How am I gonna draw girls now?”
8. Fabio da Silva
9. Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano
This pair didn’t have a single solitary clue where they were between them.
10. Julian Faubert
An absolute stone cold classic: Faubert’s still-baffling move to Real Madrid, as summed up by Alfredo Di Stefano…
Sebastien Bassong, Norwich (via @Phil_Oliver)…
Leon Clarke, Wolves…
If anyone’s compiling a gallery of miserable newly-signed players (after Lennon), here’s an old one of Leon Clarke pic.twitter.com/BrD7KYEJSG
