Roly delivers a loan player

“If you introduce a player it can take him a number of weeks – depending on the character, type, position and relationship with the coaches – to adapt and integrate. It’s not such a good idea to do too many loans”

And what do we get as a parting gift from Roly? A loan player. A right back who has not played since last May. No doubting Marco Motta’s resume but he has always struggled for game time especially at Juventus where he rarely played in 5 years.  Watford came to his rescue, probably due to a Udinese connection, and Motta played 9 games during the whole of Watford’s promotion season with them using him more on the right side of midfield.

29-years old and a little left field and why we need another right back, only Jose or Duchatelet know, but Motta hardly sets the pulses running especially after a disappointing window. Interestingly Motta was training at QPR and they were assessing his fitness before he signed. He never signed.

Anyway he wasn’t undisclosed, which was a first. Motta signed until the end of the season on a free.

    Did I dream this CA, but didn’t Murray, or Douchebag say we were going to sign more British players? Or perhaps those 9 matches for Watford tick the Championship experience box..And isn’t Fanni cover for Solly at rightback? Perhaps Motta is cover for Fanni, but neither fit enough to start a game just yet. After all right back is a really weak area for us.
