We want the old Sylvan back

We want the old Sylvan back

Wolves might have spent around £13million over the last year or so on Kevin Doyle and Steven Fletcher, but at Vital Wolves we want to see the return of the old Sylvan Ebanks-Blake.

We stepped up to the Premier League last season, with a ready to go, goalscorer in our ranks.

Sylvan Ebanks-Blake bagged 25 goals in the Championship and we tipped him to push for 15-20 in our first season in the Premier League.

Instead he struggled and eventually lost his place in the side.

With the signing of Steven Fletcher, Ebanks-Blake's battle for a starting spot will be even harder this season. But will he rise to the challenge?

"I want Steven and Doyle to be at it and I want a response from Sylvan - to be the player he was in the Championship 12 months ago, scoring all his goals.' Wolves gaffer McCarthy told the Express & Star.

Last season Sylvan Ebanks-Blake only bagged two Premier League goals. Once from the penalty spot against Aston Villa in October his second came against Blackburn in April.

Mick added: "Sylvan started in the team and came out. Let`s see what he can do now. They`ll all be thinking 'we`ve signed a centre-half, a left-back, a left-winger and a striker and that means so-and-so isn`t going to play.`

"But it doesn`t mean that at all.'

Vital Wolves Comment: How will Sylvan Ebanks-Blake react? Do you think he will rediscover his form this season? Let us know on the article comments below.

I think he might benefit from a short term loan, get some goals and come back with some confidence.

I'm confident that he can score a few goals next season, he will have a lot of competition but he's only young and has got what it takes.

Cannot help but feel that he is too easily read by defenders at this level and probably found his level in the Championship.

Makes me laugh , He had an early injury and found it difficult to get back to premiership fitness levels that he needed , Hard to get match fit on the bench !!!! , Especially when Wolves dont play a style that requires a player that can score poacher type goals , Lets face it You alll would prefer him on our books than not !!!!
