Ever since Dave Jones first signed him from Brann Bergen way back in 2004, Wolves fans have been divided on the subject of Seyi George Olofinjana.
Inconsistent. Not hard enough. Tackle shy,
All accusations that have been levelled against the big man.
Here at Olofin Towers we tend to be a bit biased when it comes to George, but it cannot be ignored, or denied, that at the end of his first season, he broke a bone at the base of his back.
Away at Reading following a horrendous challenge, he was flipped round in the air, landing hard on the base of his spine breaking a bone that went undiagnosed for months and surley must have played a part in his performances during the first half of Glenn Hoddles first season.
Now, fully healed and performing at something approaching his best he has earned an improved 3 year deal that has led Mick McCarthy to give his asessment of the man.
'If there's a better midfielder in the Championship I'd like to see him,' he said to the club's official site today, adding
'It's brilliant news that he's signed. It's something we've been talking about for a long time and I'm delighted it's sorted.
'Yes there has been interest in him from elsewhere but I'm surprised - and pleased - there hasn't been more.
'He got ten goals for us last season and he is a good all round player. He's terrific.'
There are still some who will believe they know better than a man who took his national side to a World Cup qurter final, and there probably always will.
But at the end of the day, there's only one opinion that counts.
And that is he's simply the best.
