South Africa international Somma, 27, who has not played under Warnock, has been out of action since tearing his anterior cruciate ligament in July 2011 - an injury which has required two operations.

"I'm hoping he'll play his first game for me around February or March time," joked Warnock. "Because I'm not expecting anything if that makes sense. I was told when I first came here don't worry about strikers because Somma will be fit in three weeks and that was last February!

"He's doing some training and he's not had any reaction and he's started doing different things other than straightforward running and he's going to join in with the football side of things as from next week as well.

"The trouble is, when you're not doing well up front, you think back to Somma at his best, you don't think back to when he was struggling or anything like that, so it's harsh to think somebody's going to be a saviour when they've been out for such a long time."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
