Kevin Doyle as good a player as he is, cannot score the amount of goals that we need to win matches, 22 appearances have yielded a paltry 3 goals(one of those was off big George's backside!)
Stephen Fletcher has played 8 times and scored 4 goals, a fifty percent strike rate! It's a no brainer to me?
We cannot score goals in open play yet the one thing that really gets to me is why did we spend 7 million on a striker?
It beggars belief that we spent that much on a player and leave him on the bench.
Doyle is great at what he does, run the channels and hold the ball up, but hang on a minute!, what's the point in holding the ball up if there's no one up there with you to pass it to?
Something, somewhere or at sometime must have happened between Merlin and Fletcher? Its the only conclusion I can come to, we all know, amongst Merlins many qualities is stubborness, if there has been a disagreement or an 'incident' you can be sure it will not be forgotten and it could be a 'terminal fall out'.
You cannot say he has played badly,he hasn't played enough! but he has got a few goals when he has played so why has he not been given a fair chance? read all the pre season build up of Merlins comments on Fletcher! are we now talking about a different player that was the idol of Burnley and a 'bargain' at the price that we got him for?
I would love to know Mr Morgans thoughts on this subject, 7 million would have purchased a large 'chunk' of new stand!
I think one of the new tiers should be called the 'Stephen Fletcher' stand as a reminder of the striker who came and will surely be going at the end of this extraordinary season.
And with all his inactivity what has that done to his re-sale value? not a lot is my guess, probably be going back to a championship side for a knock down price.
The time is now ripe to play 2 strikers in all the remaining home games, we have taken a miserly 5 points away from home all season so the points will more than likely be easier to come by at home.
I hope that Fletcher is given a decent run in the team and that he can supply the goals that we will surely need to remain in the promised land.
May I take this opportunity to wish all the best from myself and I am sure all the vitalwolves fans to Michael Kightly who returns to full training with the Wolves first team squad on Monday.
Is there a part for him to play yet in this seasons run in?
As ever and always Up the Wolves.
