I often wonder what would have happened if we had signed Christian Bolanos back in 2006. Would he have been the one signing that could have sparked the team into life? He certainly appeared to be a far more skillful player than Amdy Faye of even JFH.

Thanks to the Home Office we never got to find out, as he hadn’t played the requisite number of games for his National team.

“Christian is an emerging talent and is a fixture in the Costa Rica side though he’s only 22, so it’s disappointing for us and for him,” said then boss Iain Dowie to the BBC.

He returned to his native Costa Rica for another year, to be picked up a year later by Danish outfit OB. Funny that the Danes gave him a work permit?

Well if you are quick, you’ll get to see what we missed out on. He’s playing for FC Copenhagen against Chelsea in the Chumpions league tonight.

Who knows if he would have made it with us, it would have been nice to have known though.
