Good to see that Davide Somma is closing in on fitness. I'm sure I don't need to say that I am not a Leeds fan, but that doesn't mean I can't feel empathy for a talented footballer whose career has been blighted by injury - unless his name is Keiron Dyer of course!
I haven't seen a lot of Somma, but on the few occasions that I saw him play on the box, he always impressed me. And I was impressed too by Leeds United's decision to let him train on, giving him the hope of a return if he could prove his fitness.
Of course, it would be a huge kick in the teeth for the guy if Friar Brian were now to turn around and tell him to do one, but given the club's desperate need for inspiration, surely Somma will be given a chance to prove himself. And there may just be a fairy story in the making!
So, here's hoping Davide gets a ticket to ride on the Leeds United Feel Good Factor Sleeper Express to the Premiership, Europe, Infinity and Beyond, even if, as seems likely, he is on a pay as you play deal.
