It's all looking good for Wolves

It's all looking good for Wolves

With £18 million spent this season, we are strangely one of the Premier Leagues big spenders.

And that most certainly is not a sentence I thought I would be writing on Vital Wolves this time last year!

But with one season of Premier League football under our belts, Mick McCarthy has again been able to splash some cash around.

This season though he has been much more selective and according to our Mick, he has also been successful signing all of his first choice selections.

"Steven Fletcher was my first choice, despite trying to sign Aruna Dindane," McCarthy told the Express & Star.

Discussing the reasoning about making his first move for Dindane he added: "We couldn`t try to sign Fletcher because the season wasn`t over, whereas we knew Dindane was leaving Portsmouth.'

Once the season was over and Burnley's fate was sealed, McCarthy made his approach for Fletcher.

He continued: "We had to wait to get permission to speak to Fletcher, but like Stephen Hunt, Steven Mouyokolo and Jelle van Damme, they were all my first choices.'

Vital Wolves Comment: Despite spending a lot of money, McCarthy does appear to have learnt from his mistakes from last season.

There isn't a whole lot of experience in the side, but along with the players who were with us last season, all have at least tasted the Premier League before and shouldn't struggle to fit into the pace of the league.

With the club desperate to build for the future, we must not suffer second season syndrome like so many other clubs have in the past.

But I'm fairly confident that we have a squad capable of comfortably avoiding the drop and you never know, with a bit of luck and a good run of form, we could push for the top half.

Signing Mancienne is the final part of the puzzle.

Its a strange transfer window thats for sure, all my mates seem excited for the premier league to start, there all wolves fans btw, Hunt is a very good player but im unsure if fletcher and doyle would play well together but time will tell. Good luck

Seems funny that we are amongst the big spenders in the PL, almost surreal in some respects. Sure we have spent big before (to get out of the Championship) but this time the quality of the players is vastly better.

Despite spending big I think we will find it as hard a fight as last season but I expect us to stay up but only just! I agree with akela we really need to secure the services of Mancienne again.

Agree 100% about Mancienne. Final piece of the puzzle- could not have described the situation better myself. As the season gets closer and managers give up on some of their priority targets they will start making their moves for second and third choices etc- I imagine this is when the likes of Halford will be on their way. In the meantime- I truly believe the club has set money aside for Mancienne whether we have shipped players out of not. I see The Hoff has gone. Not yet sold, but at least it is one of the wage bill, and I am not knocking the player because I don't think he was ever given a chance- for whatever reasons I don't know. They can't all work out.

Forget Mancienne , Hes going to be in the 25 for Chelsea !!! , He will get Limited Game time next season and instead of the 4-5 Million he's reportedly worth now we will get him for 2 Mill next season , Henry will do the defensive duties well enough for us , As will Foley if played , Edwards Jones and Guiderola are box to box Midfielders , Although Mancienne would be a fab Signing its not the be all and end all , Mouyokolo Fletcher hunt and Van Damme are far more important Signings ....
