Wisla Krakow dumps Wyn Belotte


Jarrek

Recommended Posts

Wisla Krakow and Wyn Belotte have parted ways. Apperently the Wisla coaches thought that he just didn't have the willpower to be whipped back into shape. He was also below average during the training sessions with the Wisla II (Reserves - 3rd Division). Some of the Wisla Krakow fans said that he could barely run properly let alone kick the ball.

You're probably right on the money Daniel. Wyn was away from home for a long time, it could of impacted his playmaking abilities. If he does come back to the Impact, it would a good time for him to revitalize his sagging carreer, even though he is still 19. What amazes me is that he didn't leave any type of impact with the Wisla Reserves. Wisla II is a 3rd division team, I would say that overall the Polish 3rd division is just a step below the A-League.

Sad news...but I still wont give up on Wyn.

Hmmm.

Well, I guess there are a lot of excuses. Most of them pretty good ones too.

I hope he just bit off more than he could chew as it were, and things got away on him. But the man has been at a couple of different clubs in a couple of different leagues and has been sent packing pretty much for the same reasons.

Either his head isn't right for next level football or he dosen't have bottle. He's still very young. But those traits are hard to learn at any age if your not born with them.

Good luck, Wyn.

Hey, easy there G-L..

Your buddy Ali went threw the same problem and look at him now. Lets just hope that he will sign with the lynx. I really think that montreal will not have room for him on the team. Ali and Bellotte could be a pretty awesome strike force if the lynx contact him. But knowing the lynx they will sit on there thumbs and let someone else grab him. I still believe that he will be fine, hes a young guy who has tonnes of skill, just needs someone to point him in the right direction

Before we write his obituary, remind me how many out of shape Canadian footballers have won contracts with top flight teams in not one, but two European Leagues? Wyn wouldn't be the first teenage athlete to have all the tools but be unable to get into the toolbox. On the other hand, he clearly still has enough to impress during trial. Clearly he has become some sort of a head case. Perhaps he needs to be at home for a while to get things sorted. Maybe he never will. But both Norrkopping and Wislaw saw something in him to offer the contract, the former with much fanfare.

Interesting news. I think I will now put him in the Brad Parker category. Awesome teenage talent that didn't have the mental toughness to take it to the next level. We can make excuses for him being abroad, etc. but that doesn't say anything about your fitness. When I saw him with the U20s against the US he looked out of shape and listless. And the same this year against the Australians' for the 15 minutes he was on the pitch.

I know that we all like Canadian football/soccer but lets call it as it is. He obviously has some sort of issues related to his commitment to soccer which possibly could relate to the fact that when he was 16 or 17 it was all so easy to train little and use your talent to beat people. Now you are playing against men, it required hard work and commitment. And probably he just doesn't have it as he has failed at teh last two or three clubs he has been at.

This is probably good for Wyn. Go back to the A-League, get some confidence back with some guidance from ex-MNT members (in Vancouver,

maybe). Not playing much in a third-division Polish league will not

help the fragile ego of this lad who once remarked that he was the

second coming of Thierry Henri.

He's still young, has some skills, and needs to develop some

maturity.

I agree, and actually I mentioned the same thing on the other board before I saw your post.
