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

The Tomasz Frankowski Affair

Tomasz Frankowski's Molineux nightmare has come to a close.

For now at least.

Without a single goal to his name in 17 appearances since his arrival in January, Franek must be wondering where it all went wrong.

Hailed as the clubs super-signing, the pressure was on Franek from the moment he touched English soil, but that's nothing new to the former Wislaw Kracow hitman.

A consistent scorer at every level he has played at, Tomasz could have had no inkling that in a short space of time, his reputation would vanish, and with it his dream World Cup place in Germany.

After speaking to new manager Mick McCarthy it became apparent that there was little chance for him at Molineux this term, and so when a hastilly arranged season long loan to Deportivo Tenerife was mooted, he grasped the chance with both hands.

But that doesnt necessarilly mean Wolves have seen the last of him.

True, Tenerife have a buy in clause that would allow the to sign Franek permanently if he helps them gain promotion to La Liga.

But Franek also has the option of returning to Molineux to see out the final year of his contract, and possibly his career.

There is a feeling that Franek has unfinished business in the midlands, the one and only place he has failed to settle and find the net.

The hard physical nature of Championship football played a part, but so surely must the intense scrutiny with which his every move on the pitch has generated since his ill fated 1.4 million arrival.

In leaving, Franek did so with the professionalism, courtesy, and grace of an international striker, currently his home land's Player Of The Year.

No petulant parting swipes, no angry outbursts against either club or current manager, just a solemn pledge to move to Spain, regain his confidence and scoring touch, and maybe, just maybe, return bigger and stronger to prove his critics wrong, and do what he has always done. Score goals.

Everyone at Olofin Towers is saddened by the way the Tomasz Frankowski Affair has ended. Unsatisfactorily for everyone involved, least of all Franek.

But we also hope that Franek CAN return to show those that kept faith with him, that form can be fleeting, but true class is permanent.

Franek, Franek, Lowca BRAMEK!!
