If you thought being a Villa fan was tough right now, spare a thought for Sunderland - who have just signed Joleon Lescott on a short-term deal.
The centre-back and luxury car admirer has joined the Black Cats until the end of the season, having been left without a club when his contract at Greek club AEK Athens was cancelled.
The 34 year-old will be reunited with his boss at Everton, David Moyes - and as some have pointed out he's not the only familiar face...
Lescott, Anichebe, Rodwell and Pienaar at Sunderland under David Moyes, getting the old band back together. Someone give Tim Cahill a call.— Daniel Storey (@danielstorey85) 24 de enero de 2017
Spare a thought then for our dear friends over at Sunderland sister site Roker Report, who have tried to find a few positives from the move.
