Aliadiere - Wenger Swung It

Aliadiere - Wenger Swung It

Wolves fans have high hopes for Jeremie Aliadiere. And he has high hopes for Wolverhampton Wanderers. And fans can wait to see him in action in Old Gold and Black for the first time.

It's now well documented that Wolves controversially chose to delay using the young Frenchman until the away game with Burnley in 11 days time to ensure he would be available in the play offs, if they get there. And that is looking like a very big if at the moment.

His arrival at Molineux caught quite a few by surprise, but it was a friendship made many years ago that swung the deal in Wolves favour

Talking to Wolves World, in a curious mix of French and Norf Lahndan accents earlier today he said :

“I didn't have a good experience at West Ham, I didn't play a lot, and I needed to play. I've been injured the last few seasons, but this season I haven't been injured and I need to play.

“I've been in 2 clubs, Celtic and West Ham and I haven't played.”

Clearly Aliadiere was not happy with his stays at Upton Park and Parkhead, and so when the subject of another loan was raised he was bound to be more than a little skeptical. Time for Wolves secret weapon to speak up.

Arsene Wenger.

“He told me it would be a good move to go for 3 months and play. I told him I had already had 2 bad experiences, and I didn't know where to go because I don't really trust anybody anymore at all. They said “Yeah, you're going to come and play.” and I didnt so I told him I didn't really want to move again if I'm not convinced they're going to play me.”

“Then he said “I know Glenn's going to play you, I know him well, and he really likes you. He wants you.” and I thought, yeah, I'll go there.”

Jeremie knows the size of the situation he is walking into. Wolves desperately need goals from somewhere. And as far as bets go, Aliadiere isn't a bad one to score at Championship level. And he's familiarised himself with Wolves standings, and also had time to sense the mood in the Wolves camp.

"15 games left is 45 points to take. If we can win the next 2 or 3 games and then after, it will bring back the confidence in the team and we will do well.”

Confidence is something Wolves players and fans had in abundance at the start of the season. Its a sign of the club's lack of achievment so far that in both cases, it badly needs lifting.

It's been quite a while since Aliadiere has completed a competitive 90. For some players that might mean a lengthy period regaining match fitness. But Jeremie appears to look after himself better than some, and nows thre is only one way to maintain the level of sharpness every striker needs. As he explains

“I really want to play, but I'm not really match fit because .I haven't played a lot of games. I don't think I will be 100% fit for the first 2 games which is why I want to play as quickly as possible to get my fitness back and then help the team.Its different to anything like, a training session.”

Wolves fans are still left waiting to find out when the “Dream Team” of Aliadiere and Frankowski will be unleashed on The Championship, with Turf Moor a week on Saturday looking the favourite.

Which gives Aliadiere nearly a whole 2 weeks of training with Frankowski to try and forge a common understanding before being unleashed on defences.

Should it live up to the billing, Burnley could be in for a bit of a surprise.
