    Wessinio finally started his first A League game on Sunday, with the Jets beating a hopeless Adelaide 3 nil. Wes played about 65 minutes before being subbed.

    He had some class touches, set up one of the goals with a lovely over-the-top pass, but he was a bit anonymous for periods. For a first start though, he did enough.
    Roy O'Donovan scored for Newcastle- his 3rd consecutive math that he scored in.
    Former Cardiff and Celtic player Joe Ledley came off the bench for Wes.

    Like every other league, the A League is under threat of being postponed/cancelled, so Wes' future at Newcastle is probably at risk I reckon.

    Interviewed with the Cambridge manager (who's younger than him!) in the Guardian last week: https://www.theguardian.com/football...top-league-two
    Few interesting bits about how he trains to be able to play
    All goals, yellow and red cards tweeted in real time on twitter and facebook

    Wessi nominated for League Two player of the season. Not bad for a 38 year old!

    I still think he could do a job for us. Zlatan back with Sweden at a similar age

    I'd love to see him in an Ireland jersey again. It's probably not the right thing to do but I'm an old romantic at heart

    I suppose you could say that his legs were giving out 4/5 years ago when he last played. That's hardly likely to have changed now he's 39. Zlatan is knocking in the goals in Serie A still and isn't really a valid comparison.

    He would be good for unlocking poor teams even for 45 minutes but given Kenny's apparent lack of faith in another luxury player (Jack Byrne) i think there is no chance of a recall.

    Yeah, I'd guess he'd only really be useful in situations where we're way on top, looking for a goal. I think we should sort out the way on top bit first before looking for an elderly cherry on top.
    Covid-negative, maybe; I haven't checked.

    He has to skip midweek games for Cambridge as it is. The idea he could fly across Europe for international games is fanciful.

    He wouldn't have to fly. If he set off early enough he could walk across water.
