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.

I was born just down the road (Sandwell Place, just off Halfords Lane in the late 40's, now demomolished, thank gawd.)Have followed my team through thick and thin, home and away, and can only agree that we want "Baggies Men" who give their all. I want to see the good times back and not the detractors who just turn up for their money.
