With our current er... shall we say... difficulties in the striker position, I just thought back and remembered we were linked with re-signing Fabio on a free back in October.

Signed for a Turkish Super Lig team in December and by all accounts has done ok, scoring 5 goals in 10 matches for a team currently in 8th place.

I must say when we were linked I liked the idea of signing him; to boost squad depth if nothing else. Now I look back and think maybe we missed a trick?

I know he's not the player he was but with our 2 first choice strikers misfiring and our rotation options up front at present being a 36 year old winger, an inexperienced kid the manager evidently doesn't want to play, and an American winger we also apparently have no interest in playing?

I'd love to have had Borini as an option for the match on Saturday.

Our last four wins at Stoke.

I'd like to see Ryan get some more game time going forward. Bidwell hasn't been at his best for a while now, and I've always felt Manning looks more comfortable than him going forward (his pullback for Cullen vs Forest was perfect for example). He hasn't looked bad defensively either.

As a bit of trivia, maybe I'm the only one but I didn't realise it was him who scored the two penalties against us in our infamous late 2-1 capitulation to Rotherham in November '18. We should have scored at least five in that game.
