Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson has made his second signing of the summer this morning, bringing in the former Barnsley, Sheffield Wednesday, Bristol City, MK Dons, Hartlepool United and Swindon Town manager, Danny Wilson.
It's a surprise, in that, Wilson hasn't played professional football since 1995, after a long career that took in the likes of Bury, Chesterfield, Nottingham Forest, Scunthorpe United, Brighton & Hove Albion, Luton Town, Sheffield Wednesday and, of course, little Barnsley.
Many on Merseyside will wonder just what the hell Hodgson is playing at, but the shrewd former Fulham boss knows what he's doing, even if I don't.
Wilson was essentially a midfielder, but can play anywhere on the park if absolutely ordered to do so, a fact underlined by the Northern Irishman's 97 career goals, which included one for his country.
And Liverpool need a player that can score goals from midfield, so Wilson looks like the perfect buy. He said:
"Ah wer as surprised as anyone else to get the call from Roy Hodgkinson after all these years, but ah can still play a bit, an' ah'll give it me best shot. By 'eck! Football's a funny old game, intit?"
