These were the best jokes doing the rounds as it was confirmed that wayward striker Emmanuel Adebayor had signed for Crystal Palace on a free transfer.
Alan Pardew’s side have been struggling for form and goals of late, losing four consecutive Premier League games and scoring just once in six matches.
An on-song Adebayor would go some way towards alleviating their problems, but the potential downside – Adebayor’s notoriously difficult character – is sure to see sales of popcorn and fold-up chairs go through the roof in South East London.
Now sit back, relax and enjoy the following Emmanuel Adebayor jokes:

If Adebayor doesn't score 8+ goals this season, earn a new contract, then fail to score more than 8 PL goals next season, I'll give you £1.
