You know the phrases ‘good things come to those who wait’, and that ‘good things come in small packages’?

Well we sort of had a combination of the two occur last night, both at the same time.

Having waited a little bit longer to make his debut due to some technicalities in his paperwork, Jefferson Montero finally made his debut for the Blues, coming on as a substitute in the 79th minute during their 2-0 win against Barnsley.

Although he didn’t have much time, he certainly made the most of it and Blues fans were mesmerised with what they saw. I wonder if he’ll make his way into the starting eleven soon, or if he’s just going to be a ‘super-sub’ role like Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

I’ve raised the question before about how Montero might have some difficulties getting into the team, however it looks like Clotet is confident in finding a way for him to be of some use, and if this debut is anything to go by, then it looks like I could be eating humble pie at the end of the season, which I more than look forward to doing. Just so long as we don’t go down.
