    Would be nice to see him extend his career if he wants to keep playing. But I imagine many clubs with smaller budgets would be reluctant to pay any sort of significant salary for a diminutive 36 year old who apparently lacks the fitness to regularly play 90 minutes. As close followers of his career we know that's not the whole story but on paper he may not be the most attractive proposition.

    I would venture Sunderland in Div 1 would pay him well and he would be a great signing for them

    I agree that would be a great fit.

    Why would he bother? Thought he’d go abroad rather than drop below Championship.

    Looking like he's prolonging his Championship career and could be signing for West Brom. The above states they're having a close look. Other reports saying he's poised to sign.

    Came off the bench last night when WBA were trailing 2-0 to Wednesday. Ended up 2-2. Not saying he was instrumental in the comeback but their play definitely improved following his arrival on the field. Usual curate's egg stuff. Buzzing round, neat passes, losing possession, bad pass but always looking to do something positive. Must be a great player to play with. If you make a run, you've a reasonable chance he'll put you through.
    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    Brendan Rogers missed a trick. He's just what Celtic need right now.

    Despite affection for Hoolahan can you imagine the reaction the Celtic board and to a lesser extent Rodgers would have had to face had they rounded off a shambolic transfer window by signing a 36 year old just released by a poor Championship side.

    They were terrible last night. Couldn't string a few passes together. It reminded me of Georgia v Ireland a few years ago.

    Roy O'Donovan had been with Newcastle Jets for the last couple of seasons. Shame he is still not there to provide some Irish support to Wes.

    If he stays fit, he could do well in the A League despite his age.

    Wes played his first game for Newcastle Jets last night: A FFA cup match vs a semi pro team.
    They won 5-1. Wes got a goal and an assist.
    It was live on TV in Australia. Wes was a class above the rest, and looked fit and sharp.
