The Wheater From The Chaff

The Wheater From The Chaff

Will it make a difference? Are you even bothered? Here it is, anyway...

David Wheater is back in full training and will join up with the starting squad today.

We all are painfully aware how short Dougie is for defensive numbers, but the reintroduction of Wheater into the fold doesn't exactly settle any nerves for me.

Troubled with a knee injury at the beginning of the season- in which you ask yourself again, why on earth was he 'playing' then- the big centre-half struggled tremendously for form and confidence.

Apparently, now David is fit and raring to go.

Like anything BWFC these days, I'll reserve judgement and believe it when I see it...

If he actually is fit enough to play 90 minutes and he's as good as he was before his knee injury, this is great news. If it's another false start then it's seriously bad news, much like Holden's last couple of returns.

We have had a 'gluton-free diet' of defensive errors for most of the season now - therefore the re-introduction 'Wheat Germ' should spice matters up and send the 'gluton intolerant' dashing for the latrines - not much hope of stopping those 'runs' into the box then!

Ah but would the introduction of Conor Wilkinson make a difference?! I know this is stretching the 'W' theme a little far - but then I do tend to get a recurrent 'W' image in mind's eye when ever I watch certain Wanderers' players! Our mine host - sorry manager - buys young players like good bottles of wine ie for laying down in the cellars of Euxton. Occasionally they are exhibited on the bench - very rarely the bottle is opened but immediately the cork is returned before we can get a proper flavour of the contents. Nevertheless, he is quite happy to loan these bottles to other wine tasting clubs - generously he allows them to sample the flavours within - he has obviously learned from his intoxicated days at Crystal Palace when new wine was blooded weekly - the success must have gone to his head! Back to Conor Wilkinson - curate's egg or mercurial - it is hard to sum him up but I can say that he is different and I like him! So did Benfica apparently - perhaps they saw a little of Eusebio in him - he might have been plying his trade in Lisbon if Dougie Freemason ( he must be one to have kept his job! ) hadn't snapped him up from the lion's den. Young Mr Wilkinson has skills that reminds me of players in the 1960's - he is a throwback to the days when players were individuals and not robots - he turns like Freddie 'Twinkletoes' Hill and has the spirit of Mike 'Racehorse' Channon - he has the ability to do something different and wrong foot defences - great hairstyle as well! He might not be the complete article but then there is a crack in everything - that's how the light gets in Mr Freemason!

Got to be good news if, as Rob says, he is indeed fit and can also regain his early form. Despite the reintroduction of the sports science and all that, it is very frustrating that comebacks of this sort seem to be short lived in general. Also, will Dougie play him? Let's hope our luck starts to turn.
