Fincho has the most bizarre dreams of anyone I've even known. My favourite was one from a few weeks back when she dreamt that Jesus had come back from the dead and was now playing in the Bolton Wanderers midfield...
This may sound unlikely, but I'd like to think that if anyone could pull of this masterstroke of a signing it would have to be Big Sam Allardyce.
But where would Christ play? I see him in the base of a diamond midfield protecting the Bolton defence - a kind of midfield enforcer, parting opposition defences with his raking through balls - though he'd have to wear boots instead of sandals. After a few robust performances the son of god would probably be singled out for his over physical style of play and his long ball approach, but i'm sure Christ would catch the eye of the Israeli National coach and he would soon be in the Israel team too.
So the Bolton side would look something like this:
Would Christ be able to combine with the Nakata, Okocha and Diouf (the Japanese, Nigerian and Senegalese amusement arcades respectively) in the heart of the Bolton midfield?
How would he adapt to the rigours of the English game?
I've sure John Motson would have a field day on MOTD. "And he's turned water into wine with that 60 yard cross-field pass to Diouf..."
