Wolves spending for 2010 - 2011

Article written by BullysBestMate

Last summer we spent about 18 million pounds on some good players, some medium players and a couple of useless players who offered very little to the squad.

Kevin Doyle and Marcus Hahnemann were two definite success stories in a very good season.

Stefan Maierhofer did not offer as much as was expected and Andrew Surman didn't really get a chance to play either.

Greg Halford didn't impress either. It is fair to say that Zubar came good in the end and had a very pleasing season on the whole and that Mancienne did well enough for us to want him back next season.

We survived. Verdict - Good spending.

This season, we have secured Adlene Guedioura and Geoffrey Mujangi Bia permanently and have added 4 other players being by far the most busy of the Premier League teams and showing real ambition for next season.

Depending what 'disclosed' figures you read, we have spent over 15 million so far and look to have secured reinforcements for our weakest areas.

In Fletcher we have a different kind of striker who scored 12 goals last season and is young with PL experience. He was once on Real Madrid's radar too!

In Hunt we have a player with real quality and tenacity as well as good PL pedigree. A roaming winger who can get goals.

I worry a bit about the other 2 new faces though. Van Damme had a season with Southampton and that's all I really know. He has apparently played really well in Belgium recently and could be a decent addition, plus he is a big lad which always helps in central defence (but where will he play next season?)

Mouyokolo again doesn't fill me with confidence. He looks like another who could come really good if he fulfils his potential.

In short, Wolves are signing promising players who could all have a great season, but there is a real worry that it might not all come good.

What happened to the days of signing Paul Ince and Dennis Irwin who had leadership and experience to help the younger lads?

I know that we went down with an old team, but I feel that we are missing someone who has been there and done it all. Someone for the younger lads to look up to.

Wolves are playing the transfer market the only way a new Premiership team can... they are buying bargains who are hungry for success and not going for the money.

Lets hope that the gamble pays off and that next season we will be looking to add that marquee player we all want to see.

I wander if Wayne Rooney will be fed up at Man U by then? Hi-Ho Wolverhampton!

Please put your starting 11 below so we can see where the weak spots are and who we need to get in before 14th August.

Some very good points. We would all like to see 'star' names on the teamsheet, but that costs a lot of money. It's not just the transfer fee to buy them, it's their wages (and the knock on effect on the rest of the team wages). I like Hunt (when injury free), Fletcher and Mouyokolo (remember seeing him play well and score v Chelsea) and I think they will all improve our existing team (which surely is the aim). Not sure/dont know enough about Van Damme to comment and unsure where MM intends playing him, hope not at L/B as I believe he is not the quickest. My starting 11; Hanneman Zubar Mouyokolo Van Damme/Berra Ward Kightly/Guedioura Henry Mancienne/Jones Jarvis/Hunt Fletcher Doyle In 4-4-2 formation against the weaker teams.
