Watching Vardy/Abraham play in the last two matches has only confirmed what we already knew about Wesley. He is nowhere near good enough for this level.
Watching strikers move, run the channels, busting a gut to be on the end of everything etc. That's what we all want to see. Wesley just doesn't do anything and when he is called upon, he invariably just gives the ball away or it bounces off him. He has an unerring talent to be absolutely nowhere to be seen when a cross comes into the box. What the hell is he doing?
I'm not saying we should have bought Vardy or Abraham in the summer, that would be ludicrous, but surely for the 22m we spent on this donkey, we could have bought Maupay or someone similar. We really got this one wrong in the summer. It was the one position we needed strengthening more than any and we decided to only buy one player and that player happens to be the antithesis of the modern day striker.
He HAS to be taken out of the team for the next game. The players don't want him on the pitch and nor do the fans. He's killing us.
I'm close to saying I hope he gets injured and before any of you jump on my back, I have spoken to several people who, when he went down at the weekend, genuinely wanted him to stay down and be taken off.
