Bloody typical isn't it? We sign an exciting prospect from Seria B, can't work out where to play him, sell him for less than £2m, and now he's in the Italy squad, predicted to make his debut for the Azzurri tomorrow.
Now I accept that playing for Italy these days is not what it once was. Bloody hell, even Reid looked like a Premiership player when New Zealand played them in the World Cup but still, how the Hell did we part with a future Italian international for less than we paid for an overweight South African reject? Diamanti was our second highest scorer last season, whilst McBenni is still looking for his first goal. Well I say looking, but I mean hanging around, hoping one will come along of course.
How much would you invest in Diamanti bursting the net with one of his trademark free kicks tomorrow? It's even more certain than Dyer coming off inside the first twenty minutes, in the next game after actually playing a full 90 minutes for the first time in his West Ham career!
