Honestly, what is the point of signing somebody like this? Martin O'Neill is a decent judge of a player and doesn't rate the guy, and he is at an age where he isn't going to suddenly improve. Faubert was jettisoned because he couldn't fit the 4-3-3 shape due to his ineptitude in the box, and Elmohamady's goals per game return is remarkably similar to the fat arsed Frenchman's.
Should we sign Elmo? I'd rather have Bert and Ernie myself!
