Leon Clarke has come in for a fair ammount of critisism this season. The current fans' Young Player Of The Year has had to bear the brunt of terrace derision that has escalated to large sections booing his name when read out over the tannoy.
br>A product of Wolves acadamy, and once a fans favourite, his fall from grace was completed on Saturday, when, after scoring the goal that took Wolves through to the FA Cup 4th round he ran to the home fans and put his finger to his lips.
That act earned him an earbashing from captain Paul Ince, and even more derision from the fans, angered by his gesture. Leon has spoken to the club's official site to try and put things straight. He says:
Hopefully that's the end of the matter, but Leon will need to work hard to earn back the respect of the fans who feel he has let them down. Because at the end of the day, that is the root of the problem. Extremely demanding fans are being left feeling let down But for one 20 year old local lad to have to shoulder that seems harsh.
