So what next? His 3rd "Last Chance" season in a row took an identical route to the previous two. Some bright games giving a flicker of hope but mostly shadowed by the fitness concerns and injury troubles. I expected to see some links to various clubs by now but it's been quiet so far. Perhaps there is little interest in a player that can't prove himself fit for 90 minutes let alone more than 3 matches in a row. Personally, if we signed Thiago, I'd be happy enough to keep him as a backup player. No expectations, no bullshit about what "could be". Just a what you see is what you get 4th or 5th choice midfielder behind Carrick, Thiago, Cleverley, Jones and probably Fletcher too.
