    Ellington - stress

    It is totally disgraceful that a professional footballer earning God-knows-how-much per week should cite such a pathetic excuse for not playing for his team. Stress?! He doesn't know he's born! People with far more stressful lives and jobs turn up to work day in day out and turn out jobs well done.

    Never trust a player who won't play in winter without his gloves on...

    I've defended Ellington in public before and I regret it now. Let Wigan have him for 3 million I say. Any player who cites stress as an excuse for not playing just because of one transfer request and a piddling bit of speculation is not fit to wear a West Brom shirt.
