Mallik Wilks

Post by Cjay » Wed May 22, 2019 9:44 pm

A potential first team player next season maybe?

Certainly proved himself in league 1 with Doncaster, 15 goals 9 assists in all competitions.

Not bad going for someone who only turned 20 in December.

Popular with the Doncaster fans, has attracted praise apparently for his performances in league 1 from the media and rival fans and such.

Powerfully built young man, a shade under 6ft or just over depending on where you read, pacey and direct, preferring to play on the right in order to be able to cut in on his preferred left foot (he is extremely one footed from what ive seen but tbf most players are).

What i do like is he isnt a kick and rush sort of dribbler from what ive seen, he has the pace to do that but he has quick feet and is able to beat a man that way to which given how little space we get in the final 3rd is probably more useful then kick and rush.

Now, there is a legal matter that he has pending and quite a serious one, he will face charges of assault occasioning actual bodily harm and violent disorder (however he is innocent until proven guilty and while their would be no excuse if guilty its fair to say the lad has had a difficult time).

So, legal issues aside, could he have a part to play next season?

Impossible to say. Nicky AJose had an even more impressive season in league 1 before coming to us and made no impact whereas others have made bigger steps up in class look easy. Some of his goals you would have to question the standard of keeping and similarly a couple of the assists were only assists because of great finishes rather than the assist being particularly brilliant. Looks to have decent pace and confidence can be the biggest factor and he looks like he has that too. Over to Bielsa (or a new manager).

From what I've seen of him, I think he can be a good option to have for depth, although his defensive work needs improving. He's confident and arrogant, so should be able to step up to Championship level. One thing to question is his attitude, he seems like a pratt and is often showboating and such. I can't see Bielsa standing for that, but he's still young so he can mature.

Good impact/ backup player maybe. We need to pin our hopes higher though tbh.

My mate and his sons are Donny Season ticket holders ( strange family :lol: ) they rate Wilks and would be happy to keep him for next season.

However they say he can go missing in games if it’s going the teams way, they also have nicked named him the Gangster due to the way he acts on and apparently off the pitch so that may not bode well for the future :duno:

A decent player at League 1 level but i doubt he has the ability or attitude for a Bielsa team.

Interesting player with talent to burn.

According to Leeds he strongly and vehemently denies the charges.

His trial is in July apparently so he will either be back at EL for pre-season or captaining the HMP New Hall X1.
