To be fair, there aren't really any good photos of Vinny Samways, but the one the Premier League have chosen to accompany the former Tottenham, Everton and Charlton man's player profile on their official website is especially abhorrent.

Matthew Lewis/Getty Images(Bleacher Report) Joe Cole arrived on Merseyside just over a year ago with high hopes, a big contract and tons of belief that he was going to help lead the Reds return to the promised land that they have been so long removed from.
