      Cant believe we still got estimated 10 million quid for this lad.

      All the best Fabio.

      Never LFC quality, same as a good number we currently have in the side.

      Not sure what his wages were but going on 75k a week he cost an extra £10m to warm the bench for a year rather than go there last year for £16m.

      Well no he couldn't, because nobody offered £16mill, around 12 is more accurate and I think that was from QPR.

      We have got basically £10mill back for him so for a guy that barely played for us, that's not too bad when you consider we paid around £10.8mill for him.

      Sunderland bid £14 million last summer.

      Don't need his kind at the club. Let us never sign an Italian again. Aquilani, Borini and Balo is a horrendous track record.

      To be fair, at least he scored a pretty damn nice lob against the Mancs. That almost makes up for how bad he was in every other game. Almost.

      Not forgetting the one he smashed in against Real in the 4-0 embarrassment.

      Did he also score against Madrid? It's all coming back to me now that lob was tasty

      Fabio was just another player that didn't fulfil his potential.
      I can understand the reasons for buying him, young, Italian international, but will go down as yet another failure.

      Failure in terms of playing time and having an impact on the squad, but unlike some, we've actually managed to recoup our money on him if all clauses are activated.

      This makes John Henry very happy.

      Makes the net spend look fantastic! (from Hong Henry's point of view)

      I assume the money saved will go towards the new stand then.

      Ah yes, but the comment was made in the context of

      Borini
      Balotelli
      Aquilani
      Dossena

      We wanted Ferraris.
      We got Fiats.

      I'd take a few Italians, still. He is definitely not one i'd like back.

      Never seen such an inept striker. He can't shot, isn't quick, can't pass and his movement resembles a baby just finding his feet. The lad grafts but pay me millions and i'd run all f**king day.

      Sunderland have been mugged off paying that much for him.

      I remember saying before we signed him that he wasn't good enough.

      The response?

      "Well he made it into the Italian national team squad at the 2012 Euros, he MUST be good!"
