I heard that `Mad Wilko' was after Stockports Kevin `Freaky' Francis for the alledged
staggering sum of 2,000,000.  If this is true,  then Wilko (mentler) is going crazzzzzyyyy.

Somebody, somewhere tell me that Wilko is not paying that amount of money for the lumbering
mutant.  Against a decent defence (of which there are little in the 2nd Div) he'll score
every game, but he is fundamentally a ***footballer.  He only does so well because of
his deformed gene structure.  The guy belongs in Jim Roses Circus Side Show.  

No ball control, no vision or idea of offside or running into space.  He just lumbers into
the pen area, with his hands dragging on the ground making him slower, and hopes the ball
is delivered well enough to hit his head.  If it goes lose around the six yards box his
mis-shapen legs try and bludgeon the ball, and any players around, into the net.

This type of player make the long ball game thrive, it reduces the real football skill
seen on the pitch and turns into some sort of `Basketball physical mutations contest'.

Wilko.......don't go CRAZY.
