Throughout Jamie O'Hara's exile from the Wolverhampton Wanderers first team I've always questioned whether or not it was a wise decision.
Of course when new Wolves head coach Kenny Jackett stepped in through the doors at Molinuex, the four players he almost immediately aimed to get rid of all had valid reasons behind them and none more so than Jamie O'Hara.
But as time passed on and no-one was making any enquiries about the talented midfielder, you had to question the business decision behind the exile.
When the business side of the football club has an asset that they value at £5million, then you either have to utilise it or sell it. But over the past six months we've been doing neither at a cost of £20,000-a-week.
That massive wage, which many Championship clubs and all League One clubs would baulk at has cost in the region of £500,000 since his last appearance.
While his attitude has appeared to fine, playing and training with the development squad I just felt that as the weeks went on it was just plain daft.
Then last week he of course was caught training with Kevin Doyle and photographed by the Express & Star. Kenny Jackett might have tried to deny it, while other Wolves fans may have thought the story was merely trying to 'stir it up' (thanks johnwolf) but for me it was obvious that he was edging closer to a return.
Admittedly being named on the bench over the weekend was a shock return as it happened so quickly, but personally I think it's great news that we might finally see O'Hara playing again although I know it is likely to split the fans right down the middle.
"I feel enough time has passed now for Jamie O`Hara, I think the last four months have humbled him - those are his words - and he`s very appreciative that everyone at the club is willing to give him a second chance." said Jackett to the E&S.
"We`re going to bring him back into the group and set him the task of working as hard as he possibly can, being a good team player and earning a place." Jackett added.
