Wes Hoolahan Already Has Cambridge United Fans Swooning Over Him

It may have only been the second weekend of the English Football League but already there are just two teams left in League Two with a 100% record. Cambridge United sit top, thanks to a 3-0 win over Carlisle United on the opening matchday and a 5-0 win against Morecambe at the weekend.

Saturday's win was thoroughly convincing, with one Wes "Wessi" Hoolahan getting the opener.

It wasn't just his goal that caught the eye, however. His all-round performance has fans purring. Statistics website WhoScored.com gave him a 9.3 player rating, while Cambridge United fanzine 'Under the Abbey Stand' was full of praise:

"If you’d had any doubts if Wes still had it, you can settle them now. This was a masterful performance. From minute one he took his position as a ‘right winger’ as a recommendation at best. He floated centrally, often drifting out between the lines."

They added: "It was a display to show United fans, and the whole of League 2, that he is still a player cut from different cloth. A level above the standard. I think we’ll be seeing his influence decide a lot of games over the next few months. "

Fans were just as enamoured by his performance.
