Franek Raring To Go
Polish hitman Tomasz Frankowski has spoken at length regarding last season's performance, his hopes for the coming campaign and his disapointment at not making the Poland WC'06 squad.
Talking to the clubs official site he said
'I`ve had one month's holiday since 2004 and it's done me good because it's given me the chance to clear my head,'
'I'm happy to be back and looking forward to a month's training before the season starts.
'I feel fresh now after feeling very tired in the last three months of last season.
'I had three clubs last season. I started with one month in Poland, then six months in Spain and three months with Wolves.
'One season with three clubs in Poland, Spain and England is a lot to get used to because they're three different cultures.
'I also had a month out with injury in Spain and I think all that put together caused my problems in the first few months at Wolves.
'Those problems are behind me know and I think people will now see the real Tomasz Frankowski from August.
'I am confident I will score goals. Last season was difficult for me in England - but in Poland and Spain everything was fine. I scored goals there so why not in England?
'I know I wasn't in that good form in May when the Poland squad was picked, but there were other Polish strikers who were not in good form either.
'Why I was left out I don't know. It was a strange decision by the national coach Pawel Janas.
'But I've forgotten about last year now and I'm looking to the future. If I play well for Wolves I expect to be called up to the national squad again. If I don't score goals I can't expect to go.'
By his own admission, no-one in England has seen the best of Tomasz Frankowski. Yet.
Vital Wolves has championed Franek's cause since way before he signed on the dotted line, and sees no reason to change their opinion that Frankowski is a class above most of The Championship's strikers, and that he will eventually prove that fact.
The Fox In The Box is back, and raring to go. Championship defenders take note.
