There have been more chancers making their way across oceans and premier league teams this season than bankers I’m afraid but that doesn’t mean that a few of them might be worth backing. Fabio Borini who repped hard for Chelsea reserves and Roma was never really given the chance he may have deserved at Liverpool and has now come back from a pretty bad injury to take up a trip to the North East on loan. At 4.8 million he may just be worth it as you won’t find many cheaper forwards out there that can still bag a goal – maybe Di Canio might even bring the best out of him – if he can stay pitchside for long enough that is. From Russia with love comes Samuel Eto’o – the man who has won more trophies and golden boots than you’ve had hot dinners. At 5.9 million he may turn out to be an absolute steal if he indeed ends up as the main striker for Chelsea. On the back of a shambolic performance in their 1-0 loss to Everton, coupled with his inability to hit a barn door against FC Basle he is starting to show that at 32 he might have lost whatever talent he once had in Russia. Last but by no means least is young Scott Sinclair, sneaking under the radar at 2.8 million, who has just gone on loan to West Brom. If he can do the same kinda business that we seen from Lukaku last season he may just be the cheeky insert that you need to afford yourself some top class players alongside him. Quick, good cross, good shot and a top penalty taker – he may just be the missing link for your team – if only he could get a game!
