VVD and Allison grabbed the headlines when they were bought for big money to fill real problem areas for us and continued to do so when they proved they were worth what we spent (and more). Fabinho has over time quietly proven himself to be just as important a signing as Allison and VVD. I was a fan of Emre Can and had hopes of him maturing into a great player so was disappointed to see him go (particularly on a free). I needn't have been though because in Fabinho we got the player I was hoping Can would develop into. Nothing new here... just a general Fabinho appreciation post.
