Wheeler always looked very average for us. Clearly talented but never quick enough to be a winger and that was 5 years ago!

Absolutely fair play to him because he’s had a very decent career since and at 32 now seems to be smashing it with table topping Worthing. Seems to suite ball playing teams which, let’s face it, was never going to be a Dowse team.

Not ex-player, but ex-Manager Brian McDermott (now at Hibs) has just had a hip replacement. Interesting to note amongst the comments one that said ex-Rushden striker Darren Collins has just had that done too - there’s a blast from the past!

That clip is 6 years old. According to Wiki he is now playing for his 50th club, Slough town, as player/coach

Broken record moment but I'm gonna say it again
. Kabamba!, terrible decision to not retain him on the clubs part and I'm bringing it up again purely to offer another opinion on the fact we had clearly overtaken Barnet by last season end in terms of squad quality. Summer signings appear to have improved Barnet to the extent I wouldn't bet against them to go on and win it. Us!! Lbh it's looking like we're regressed on pitch and I obviously can't comment on dressing room. Ranting over and hopefully go unnoticed on this thread. Good luck though Darren, the lads and boss men.

We couldn’t retain him, he wasn’t our player. He was only on loan so it would then come down to if the club wanted to make an offer for him as a free agent. He was hardly on fire for us.

The player we had looked disinterested, was a wayward finisher, lazy, unfit and generally quite shit. When we played there at the start of last season he won more in the air in one half than he did in all of his Woking games.

Maybe it was the formation, maybe it was that he couldn't play with Effiong, maybe he was carrying an injury, maybe he sulked when Dowse left (although he was crap before IMO) - but I don't remember anyone asking to keep him at the end of his loan spell.

I remember him as hard working, at least. Busy and physically very handy, but toothless most of the time.

If memory serves we stuck him out on the right a lot - remember that no look assist on his debut? The winner against Maidenhead was an of an 'oh, that's what he's capable of' moment, for me.

He was also a bit of a victim of Dowse exhaustion. When people are getting tired of almost everything the manager says, and he's been talking about this particular striker for years, and said striker then doesn't score in his first ten games (by which time Dowse had gone lol), think there was much more of a focus on DS's refresh. Trying to sign a striker on League money who had four goals all season wasn't high on the priority list.
