Agent Keeping Izale In The News

Agent Keeping Izale In The News

Izale Mcleod's agent Gino Culbertson is once again telling anyone who will listen how much his client is currently in demand.

His comments - reminiscent of those made late last year when it was assumed by both agent and MK Dons that they had Glenn Hoddle and Jez Moxey backed into a corner - could be seen by some as merely keeping the players name in the transfer gossip columns.

MK Dons Chairman Pete Winkelman is still maintaining that there have been no firm offers for the young midlands born striker, but when has that ever stopped a football agent saying otherwise?

Culbertson, like many self publicists uses a hundred words where ten would easily do, and his latest statement does little to stray away from that philosophy.

'Wolves and Crystal Palace are two of the clubs being mentioned, but I'm aware that other clubs are showing an interest, so things seem to be hotting up,'

Which in effect states what we already know.
The tabloids have mentioned Izale, Wolves, and Palace in the same sentence, and this MAY mean one of them will eventually make official inquiries.

Oh to be so enlightened as Mr Culbertson.

'I'm told there haven't been any firm offers as of yet, but there have been a number of inquiries and something might well happen over the next couple of weeks.'

And then again, it might not.

How long before other enterprising football agents have a lightbulb moment and realise that Wolves have once again come onto some money, and push their client forward as the latest player to catch Glenn Hoddle's eye?

Izale Mcleod would be a gamble at a little over £1 million. Given his recurring shoulder injury, he would be a gamble at even half of that.

And with Wolves squad now down to 22 players, which includes Gabor Gyepes, Mark Clyde, Colin Cameron and Mark Kennedy - 2 long term absentees one player about to leave and the last considering his future, spending a large chunk of the clubs meagre transfer budget on a player one dislocation away from retirement certainly falls into the category of high risk.

once again the "wolves" fans??? are after GH head, do they ever learn, before hoddle it was dave jones- now those same fans are saying we should have kept him. O.K get rid of hoddle who do we have, and if we have a new manager he will want to build his own team-with what!!! we have no money (that is if you believe the paymaster haywards) so stick with glenn and get behind the team and manager and you never know it might just come good.

I might be biased after all I am attached to the great man but an annoying portion of the Wolves fan base should crawl back into their hole and stay there. The above is 100% but lets go a step further and sack Hoddle, which successful manager in his right mind is going to look at the Wolves set up and jump ship just to get schatt on? Why is Hoddle still there? Simple, he is the best there was available, do you want to suffer years of even greater torment? So get off his back. Whether you agree or disagree with the way he operates is a different matter but we have a smaller and younger squad coming into the season. There may be no money now but the deadwood that were eating it up on a weekly basis are now gone, this is a step forward. A guy who is 33 (Anderton only as an example) does not have the same agenda as a guy who is 23. DA had no aspirations for Premier League football, he had that from 23. Lets see what happens but if Wolves finish in the same spot with a young side developing side and this time next year actually have some cash to splash about I would see that as progress.

Patience has not, for quite a few years now, been a trait associated with old gold and black.
