Franco Di Santo....Need More Time!

Franco Di Santo....Need More Time!
Signed on a 6 month loan deal from Chelsea, Franco Di Santo has unexpectedly led the Rovers frontline for the majority of the season. Despite all the hard work, tactical ability and effort, Di Santo has the loan goal to his name, probably the easiest goal he will ever score, a header into an open net in the Derby against Burnley.

Whilst only scoring the one goal, Di Santo has shown us glimpses and flashes of brilliance, the scissor kick against Villa, the brilliant flick off for Dunny in the derby....

However, it looks like the lack of goals has casted some doubt in the minds of the VBERS.....

Not 2 Votes - [20%]

Need More Time to Decide 6 Votes - [60%]

Time to start putting a few more in the back of the net Mr Di Santo!!!

Hot or Not will take a break for a few weeks, giving our other pre season signings, Salgado, Kalinic and Van Heerden a few more weeks on the pitch before we cast our decision....

We'll take Franco Di back in a heartbeat if you dont want him. Beggers cant be choosers, you know. And if these 'pre-season signings' are so good...I'm sure Big Sam would have them in the line-up in a flash, if he were so confident of them producing more than Franco...

Just like to say get well soon to Big Sam from all at Vital ManCity. We may not exactly see eye to eye with your gaffer, but some things are more important than football rivalry. More on our views can be found here.
