Should I Stay Or Should I Go?

Should I Stay Or Should I Go?

What's a boy to do?

First full season of first team football under your belt, your now your home nations No1 'keeper, the most coveted in, and out of your own division, award winning, record breaking, things are going pretty well.

Well enough to attract the attention of the biggest clubs in the land, and you're still only 21.

The now astronomical sums of money being suggested as Wayne Hennessey's value are giving cause for concern that somewhere in Molineux, someone might be tempted to pursue one of avenues of interest currently opening up.

And there are fears that an attractive move offered by a Champions League side might turn the head of the young welshman looking to further his own career.

We don't buy into either of those scenarios.

Still in the first 6 months of a four year deal, a move simply doesn't make sense for player or club.

Being part of Mick McCarthy's young Wolves side doesn't effect his Internqational chances. He's Toshack's first choice everytime.

With the possible exception of Middlesborough, he would by no means be any of his Premiership suitors first choice, and with respect to 'Boro, 6 points off relegation isn't a strong place to be bidding from for a player of Hennessey's calibre.

You may say, that Wolves aren't in a position to hold onto such a prize, but as a core component of a young ambitious side nowhere near it's full potential yet, Molineux offers him the best place to establish his long term reputation before he gets anywhere near his prime.

That ambition stretches to the manager and the Board who recognise the talent they have, and his importance in the club's plans for the next three years.

The club don't need the money. We are now more likely the hunter than the hunted in the transfer stakes, Morgans millions providing a good enough shield from the Premiership vultures to fend off interest in Michael Kightly and Sylvan Ebanks-Blake, so why not highly rated Hennesey?.

So why would he go, or the club let him go?

The simple answer is they won't.

Not just yet anyway.

I'm a far bigger fan of Matt Murray, superb keeper, if he could just stay injury free he'd be up there as one of the best in the country, behind Lee Camp of course ;)
