'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Part One completed for Johnson

Over the course of the summer, and much of last season in fact, Wolves fans would have quite liked to have seen the back of Roger Johnson.
However new gaffer Ståle Solbakken took quite a shine to the controversial defender from early on and has given him a chance to impress during pre-season.

He might have stripped him of the captaincy, but it seems he has completely won over our new boss and although he warns there are still improvements to make, it looks like that clean slate is working for Johnson.

"The first part of the job is done for Roger, Now the game starts and it`s part two. I told him early on that he won`t be captain and he responded in a mature way and was very professional.' Salbakken said to the Express & Star.

He continued: "He`d be the first to say he did some things he shouldn`t have done last season.

"I told him he had work to do to become a better player on the pitch, to take responsibility for his own situation and for the team`s situation.

"He`s done that. He still has some things to improve on in training, but he`s had a very good pre-season.

Johnson's relationship with the fans is another matter entirely. The reports of his attitude both on the pitch on the training ground and in games was called into question.

His impact on the squad moral was also questioned and the fans never took him.

He's been seen as unprofessional, basically everything the every day fan on the street hates about the modern day footballer.

Can he turn that around? Time will tell....and probably a lot of time at that.

Let's hope he becomes the player we thought we'd bought. To be fair, he as to work hard because nobody would buy him after last year otherwise I'm sure a transfer request would have been put in before now.

he can put a transfer request in - but he knows no one will offer anything ... that said, he wasnt the worst of our defenders today - but that's not saying much.
