Lucky omen?

Lucky omen?

A Black Cat crossing your path is supposed to herald good luck.

If you're Mick McCarthy, fending off interest in your young squad from Premiership managers, you may not agree with this though.

If the gossip columns are to be believed, Sunderland are the latest team to be looking to cherry pick Molineux talent, with a £2.5 million bid for 23 year old Ireland fullback Kevin Foley.

Foley had an excellent first year with Wanderers, making 42 appearances, with 2 as sub and whilst the fact he has attracted interest from top flight managers isn't a complete surprise, the speed with which some fans would help him pack his bags is.

£2.5m rated fullbacks in the Championship aren't exactly ten a penny, and finding another would take slightly longer than it does on Championship Manager.

As would getting to know and understand the other thee defenders in the back line, and any foibles the Record Breaker may have.

Mark Little may be in the wings, but now in the final year of his current three year contract, and with a total of 49 games under his belt, lacks the experience Foley brings going into his seventh full season as a pro.

We don't need the money either. We're not trying to fund a bid for Lionel Messi, we're not fighting off creditors, we have no real reason to sell part of the divisions tightest defense last season, other than the fact pound signs are flashing from a Premiership club.

Mick McCarthy will have made his mind up already, and my guess is Roy Keane will be disapointed.

The fact some Wolves fans will be as well leaves me lost for words.
