David Wheater: Delighted to be back playing football

The 25-year-old played 65 minutes as an over-age player when Wanderers' Under-21 side played out an entertaining 3-3 draw with Manchester City at Euan Fields.

Wheater ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament last May and has not featured in Bolton's Championship campaign this season.

"It's tremendous to be back," he told the club's official website. "It's great to get all of the running and getting fit out of the way so I could be back out on the pitch again.

"The game went really well for me, as good as I could expect. Obviously I'm not 100 percent as I only played 65 minutes, but I felt good. Hopefully I'll play more next time."

He added: "I think I'll need a bit more time to get sharp but I didn't feel any pain in my knee. It's more an issue of concentration and getting back to remembering where runners go. All I've been doing is running for the last month or so."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

eing consistently and unrelentingly dog turd really takes it out of you. Try shadow boxing. That's what it's like watching Liverpool, punching thin air.

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
