People compare Wilf with peak Wilf and Guaita with peak Guaita and conclude that they should be dropped because they are not currently reaching those heights.

I'm not saying we can't play without him, but for me he's still the main man by some distance.
He is indeed, and to suggest otherwise is disingenuous. He has also visibly calmed down over the last few games; of course he is going to grumble on occasion, that's the sort of player he is. He is going to get brought down my opposition players and has a right to complain about that, but since Spurs IMO, he's calmed down a hell of a lot.

In the main part I think, as we have other targets for opposition players, whereas before he was our *only* target. Not since Yala have we had another target for hard tackling.

A question: can Wilf curl the ball?

I mean, of course he can, but does he ever?

He tends to hit his crosses with a lot of backspin. Very rare to see him whip it with his instep.

He is like a golfer that is only ever offered a 3 wood by the caddy. The same pitch and power with every strike!

Great to see him with a big smile on his face with Roy Hodgson at the Academy opening.

I suspect Roy is somewhat of a father figure to Wilf.

Or that Wilf might in theory, at an unnamed point in the future, not be a first team starter..?

The first point is incredibly stupid. The second point is not exactly deep and insightful.

Some of you really just talk shite, read a book or something.
Excellent post.

I think both Wilf and Eze have said that Roy was a big influence and I presume a few other players too!

cue the 'he's our best player' responses.... Aye he was, and if he remembers the release the ball a bit more often, he still has a big role to play

Made all the difference today.

Big credit to Vieira for playing him centrally.

Game was won in 2 key moments. The goal and the red card both due to Wilf and his central position.

We wouldn't have won today apart from both of those moments.
