Had the arl fella screaming down the dog n bone last night from Sunny runcorn ( U lot could prob hear him ) Vesssave the Raping.

However, wont go in to that.

1 point, when the conversation settled was the he said BAINES reminds him a bit of the Great RAY WILSON.

Now im an Owl arse, but Wilson was just before my time in the era of no video etc etc etc.

So older blues ( Bill etc) who recollect whats ure take on that statement ?

RAY WILSON ... England world cup winner and recognised at his peak to be a world class fullback. Best i've ever seen. (English).

LEIGHTON BAINES. Really just a novice to the game at the mo, but will get better, and will be a regular England player within two years.

Yeh i should have been more clear as in he didnt rate him as GOOD, but said had some potential & in glimpses reminded off, whilst as I say, ive only seen fleeting clips of Wilson play, so cant offer an informed opinion.
