When Michael McIndoe left Molineux for the glamour of Ashton Gate, Wolves lost more than a gifted, if not temperamental individual.

They lost half of a twin threat of wingers and at the time it looked like the side had also lost it's balance.

So what did Mick McCarthy do? In Matty Jarvis he signed a player seen not as a straight replacement, but as an improvement to his fledgeling side who would compliment the marauding runs of Michael Kightly and was more than capable of supplying the killer final ball that McIndoe had done so often the season before.

But a pre season hip injury saw him sidelined for most of the first half of last season, and an ankle injury to Kightly put him out for most of the second half meaning the two made just a handful of appearances together as Wolves missed out on a play off spot by goal difference alone.

"Last season was a nightmare when I got injured in the second friendly. Fingers crossed this year I can have a good full pre-season which then leads into a full injury-free season as well - that`s certainly what I`m hoping for.' he told the Birmingham Post.

"Perhaps we should have scored more goals last season and that`s something myself and Kights would like to help out with. Hopefully we can provide some decent crosses for the strikers and get some goals ourselves to make a difference."

Wanderers attacking options are a mouthwatering propsect, and after two seasons of building, it's time to let the Wolves really show their teeth.

Not many defences are going to relish the prospect of facing up to Kightly, Keogh, SEB and Matt Jarvis, nor can many claim to have a strike threat as potent.

McCarthy's sides have so far been frugal at the back, now it's time to match that with actions up front.

Championship defences will forget that at their peril.

I agree that having Kightly and Jarvis both fit at the same time is a mouth watering prospect. Having SEB in the middle for the whole season is also something to savour. Regarding Keogh though, do you honestly believe he strikes terror into the opposition's heart? Keogh is a hard working guy but his shooting is shocking. If he hit the target more often (he does get chances) then maybe he would cause fear, but for as long as he panics and pulls most of his chances, other teams will see him as a weakness.
