A big day for Chris Solly, one of our most popular players in what has been a topsy turvey last decade for the club. Solly’s debut was as a substitute in the last game of our wretched Championship relegation season in 2008/9.

That team and the one the next season never really gelled with me as we missed out in the play-offs under Phil Parkinson. Yet youngsters like Solly, Scott Wagstaff and Jonjo Shelvey were little specks of light in a dark tunnel that Chris Powell drove us out of at full speed.

Too nostalgic or a welcome homecoming? We’ll never know as Darren Bent didn’t seem to be on our loan radar, but he was on Brighton’s, who plan to sign Darren on loan until the end of the year.

I personally would have taken the gamble, although said to be earning a stonking £60,000 a week, it would be interesting to see how much of that Brighton are paying every 7 days. Roland Duchâtelet would have spat out his waffle at the thought of it and certainly that kind of money doesn’t appear in our Financial Fair Play (FFP) plan, although it makes you realise why clubs such as Brighton voted against the FFP proposals.
