Jimenez and Mancini in the bag?
OK, I will probably wake up and find this is all a dream but, according to The Sun (I know, I know) but anyway, according to The Sun, we have landed both Jimenez and Mancini from Inter Milan. Yes, that's right, two fully fledged South Americans who, it is to be hoped, we are allowed to play without paying compensation to Shafting United.
I must admit that I don't know a huge amount about either of them, but Mancini played 20 times for Inter this season just gone, so that would imply that the guy can play a bit. He plays right midfield or on the wing so this suggests that Faubert's days are up if we can find a taker. What-is-more, the guy has played for Brazil 6 times.
Jimenez, meanwhile, is a creative / attacking midfielder who has played 19 times for Chile. Hopefully he will prove a little more effective than our last Chilean import, Javier Margas.
Now, let's sort out a right back, recruit Sturridge, keep Ashton and Dyer fit and then launch a bid for the Premiership. Hang on, have I walked through a portal into Championship Manager?
