'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Who should Wolves buy?

Wolves will be spending in January, so who should we get? Joleon Lescott is set to leave Manchester City and Newcastle's Steven Taylor is also unsettled.

The outcome of an eight hour board meeting is that Mick McCarthy will be allowed to dust off the cheque book next month.

"If we can do it and if the right players are available, we`ll try to do something. The support has been brilliant from Steve and Jez." McCarthy told the Express & Star.

The fact that Wolves chairman Steve Morgan and chief executive Jez Moxey are willing to splash the cash again is the biggest indication yet that McCarthy still has their backing.

So who should he be targeting?

With Jody Craddock out injured for another month and Richard Stearman and Steven Mouyokolo both struggling for form and on the end of some criticism, the obvious target would be a defender and the E&S were quick to speculate on a possible loan move for former Wolves man Joleon Lescott who is set to leave Manchester City and Newcastle's Steven Taylor.

Vital Wolves Comment: Lescott would be a super signing in my view, realistic I'm not sure, but that's probably what the Cardiff fans were thinking when they were linked to Craig Bellamy.

i would be truly over the moon if Joleon would consider a loan move back . . . cant help feeling that this this has been one LOOONG season already...

Wages to high,dont forget he's at Man City and on megabucks,even though it would be a loan you still have to pay the wages.
Crete Wolf
That's what Cardiff fans thought Crete, but Man City are paying the majority of his wages so why not Lescott??
Akela
It would be great if we could buy Lescott but that's impossible. However, a loan deal might be concluded, especially if we could negotiate a Bellamy-type arrangement. Apart from strengthening the defence, he would want to 'put in a shift' for the cause.
Southbank60
Dont think Man City will do another 'Bellamy' type loan, think they have made this clear. If Lescott wants to play first team football then he will have to take a 'substantial' cut in wages, let's see what his attitude is to that. David Bentley would be an excellent addition to midfield. Not that many quality centre backs available or who would want to go to a team that a struggling at the foot of the table. Interesting times ahead !

Very interesting times ahead, and of course Lescott is always going to prove the stand out name when speculating. I think the fact he is making it clear he is not happy to sit and pick up a wage, but wants his football says a lot for Lescott. You read the testaments over the years about his dedication and professionalism- I think he is an honest footballer and like Keane he will always have a soft spot for Wolves. City's attitude and stance suggest he has no future at the club, and whilst I think they will sell him for a tidy sum next summer- he deserves to be at a top six club playing regular football in my book- where would be the harm for City in allowing him the possible profile of being the savior at a club that looked destined for relegation. It would only help raise his stock, and if we do end up relegated there will still be a pack of clubs trying to sign him regardless. Wages are another story altogether. Even if they pay 50% that still leaves us needing to break our pay structure- although the club indicated they would have done this last season if they could have brought in Keane. I'm going to throw some random clubs into the frame now- let's imagine he is officially put up for loan in January, ourselves, Fulham, Birmingham and Villa go in for him. I think he would pick us from that bunch based on his history here. Well, I have fanned the flames. There is also a new, rather fittingly simple poll to hit.

In the meantime I just dropped by the Newcastle site to share my disgust with the sacking. I made it clear I have not, and am not asking for McCarthy's sacking, but considering his popular up there after our draw with them at the start of the season, I couldn't help but identify him as possibly the 'experienced' manager Ashley is looking for. I will gauge their reactions to that with interest. Perhaps a few on them will drop by to share their thoughts with us also.
New York City Wolf
NYC - Newcastle are lining up Martin Jol. On matters closer to home I don't think Jo would come back to us. Don't get me wrong i'd love him to come home but I think we'll end up with some 30 something centre back looking for a few games. Express & Star are linking us with Keano. Again don't think that'll happen either. So, assuming that MM has 10M to spend (I'm speculating here) who should he bring in?? For me it has to be a centre back, and a left back. I open the floor for comments.....!!
BIG TASTY
Lescott on loan would be a great signing.. and i think he would be up for the move.. as long as city would pay the majority of his wages.. another player they are said to be willing to let go is Wayne Bridge.. and we desperately need a leff-back.. if we could get these 2 in on loan and spend some money on perhaps one more midfielder.. that would be great business.. spend 6 or 7 mil on Jenas!!!
SmithyWolves
Smithy, that is the first I have heard of Bridge, one that never even sprang to mind but that would be a tremendous signing if we could get him here on loan- him and Lescott would have a huge impact on stabilizing our defence. BT- I live regarding Lescott I agree but live in hope they will pull something off. The more concern we share as this run goes on....surely the board are feeling the same and it sounds like they are ready to do something about it. I really don't think Keane is even on the list this time- the E&S have mentioned him but only really in passing- I can't see Morgan financing that when Fletcher has spent the season sat on the bench, next to Blake.
New York City Wolf
I agree with NYCW. The money we 'save' on not going for Keane, should be added to the pot to bring in a top quality central defender and left back. Lescott and Bridge would do for me: I'll even chip in a few quid to buy them.
Southbank60
Okay, didn't take us long to work it out so let's see if the club follow.
