    Some comments re Davies for match vs Leeds:

    "Brilliant. Not afraid to give fouls away and was always lively going forward."


    "Sign him up, good quality and terrier-like in the middle."


    "Different class, fast, tackles well, runs with the ball well and again tries to make things happen."

    He played for full 90 minutes.

    When I saw him out in Walsall on Christmas Eve I thought he must be injured for Boxing Day but obviously not. Glad he's playing well though.

    The first timer I saw Mark Davies play was in a reserve team game V Leeds at Wakefield Trinity's ground about 5 or 6 years back. He got the ball just inside our half and just ran and ran dodging countless tackles before slotting the ball past the Leeds reserves Keeper. Quality goal which hew's more than capable of scoring again.

    I saw him at the Walsall game pre season and he was one of our brighter Sparks that day..... Can he last a whole season?

    He didn't play at Walsall. Ian Harte played in midfield alongside Henry.

    He was excellent at Wrexham and to a lesser extent when he came on against Accrington.

    There's no question about his talent, it's all about attitude, application and as you say, fitness.

    Must be pushing to be included into the squad on his return if injury free

    When exactly do we get Davies back?

    Said it before and i'll say it again. If he gets his head right, he is our number 1 choice for central midfield with Henry.

    He's got 1 more game for Leicester if we don't extend - which in my opinion we shouldn't.

    No worries. I wasn't really all that bothered about the exact details just wanted to share the experience. It was a fantastic individualistic goal from such a young player.

    I'd hazard a guess at his age at the time but on reflection perhaps not.

    In leeds midfield that evening were Walton, Lennon and Spring and Davies was 16 years old.

    With Michael Bridges upfront. He got their goal IIRC.

    I'd still say we were a decent match for them.

    Lets hope Davies returns to us sooner rather than later. A fully fit MD in the squad will give us that extra bit of quality in the centre of midfield (and wide) that is sometimes lacking.

    Just let's not heap too much pressure on the lad. He's not The Messiah just a talented player when at his best.

    I agree that he is not the Messiah, but IMO Dews I believe that you have understated his ability somrwhat.

    Not at all I was going to put exceptionally talented player but didn't want to build him up too much.

    But for the injuries he's suffered he would undoubtedly be pushing for England duties but unfortunately they did occur. Much like Matt Murray injuries robbed him of many games that would have seen his star rise considerably. Would he still be at Wolves if he'd stayed fit? Would WWFC still be in the Championship? Just a couple of unanswerable questions in the career of Mark Davies. Thankfully he's still young enough to perhaps answer them.

    Not at all, but he could be a vital player for us.

    Why not? Most people who have seen him play agree that he is an exceptional talent.

    Is or was? Unfortunately the past 2 years or so out injured might just have robbed him of some of his quality (hopefully not). It can't be easy for him to live up to the reputation that he had. The knockers who claim he's got too big for his boots and become too "Billy Big-time" etc. may or not be wrong. Time will tell and, like I said, he's still young enough to fulfil his early promise.

    He certainly looked back to his best on the Scottish Pre-season games he played in (and so what if they were only "friendlies") and the reports from Leicester fans are encouraging but it's up to Mark now.

    Hence the rest of my post but it won't be easy for the lad to deal with the expectations of those of us who know what he's capable of. The cries of "Davies is The Messiah" have already started.

    I'd like to think those 250 mile round trips to The Bucks Head I made just to watch him in reserve games weren't for nothing.

    I think he's also eligible for their cup game too (and it's pointless us recalling him for ours now he's cup-tied anyway)

    he has the potential to be a great player in my view but he needs to prove his fitness first, then he needs to get some game time here which will be hard to break into micks plans unless we are doing badly.
