Wolves continue the chase for new signings

Wolves continue the chase for new signings

Not perturbed by missing out on Aston Villa's Steve Sidwell to Fulham, we've now moved for Portsmouth's Michael Brown.

Brown currently has a contract dispute with the financially struggling side and by the sounds of things could be snapped up on the cheap.

According to the Brown has been out in the cold since Boxing Day as one more game will automatically give him a payrise at Pompey.

A compromise hasn't been reached and it now looks likely he will leave.

Vital Wolves Comment: Do you think Mick is making the right moves in this transfer window?

Central midfielders wouldn't have been my first port of call if I'm totally honest!

michael brown is not a player that is going to improve us.. and neither is simon church from reading.. i understand that it is difficult to get good players in the transfer market with 3 or 4 teams going for the same players but what is the point in bringing in players that aren't going to improve us.. we want exciting transfers to give us a bit of faith in the manager and the chief executive.. West ham look to be showing ambition in the transfer market and look like they will sign bridge and probably more.. so the probability is that they will improve and move up the table.. surely this means we need to be showing the same ambtion??!! i wanna grab mccarthy by the ears and give him a good shake sometimes!!!!!!!!

100 % agree. I shudder to think that mick's content to give survival a go without re-enforcements... but it seems that yet again, the few we do actually target are far too easily poached, and we are all to eager to let them go rather than splash a bit extra. No one wants to do a Portsmouth or Hull, but our squad will be tore to shreds if we get relegated, and the likes of Jarvis Doyle and Hennessey will not be replaced easily - or cheaply. Another worrying thought is that Mick knows his job isnt under threat. We could finish 15 points adrift at the foot of the table, and he will still have a job - hardly an encouraging fact for the common Wolves fan - so pleasing the board by not spending any money comes without repercussion.

All you have to do is pay Brown's £122k per month salary and I imagine Pompey will give him away; he has offered to drop that by 50% if you are interested.

Bloody right! We've had more than our share of fillers, who do nothing to improve the team, get few games but cost us money, get shipped out to lower division clubs if we can fix it and eventually move off elsewhere at a lower transer fee. What a waste of time and money. Of course, we need one or two cheap players of equivalent status to fill in the gaps due to injury or suspension BUT in our present situation we should focus on spending the lot and a little more besides on a quality left back and a central defender. This is the only way to improve. Our management is so unambitious. OK, so it would be nice to have a bigger, posher stadium but that's turning the club's priorities on their head. If we don't improve, we could go down and then there will be no point in adding extra seats. Are we going to settle for mediocrity?

Saw this earlier and was very suprised as to how many players we are still 'using' at present.This is either very commendable on the improvment of these players under Merlin's magical touch or does it show a lack of ambition?any comments? 1st game of the season 2008 against Plymouth Argyle 9/8/2008 result 2-2 Team Hennesey Foley Stearman Craddock Elokobi Kightly Henry Jones SEB Ward Keogh Out of all of those only Keogh has left and thats only on loan,now there's qa thought cant we recall him from Cardiff as our back up striker?that will save a little bit more on the budget!!UTW.

There are players in nordic countries like Norway, Denmark, and Sweden available. They're cheap and doesn't demand high salary's. Our scouts should cover these areas better. Nordic players has traditionally done very well in premier. Instead we go out and battle for talented players others club are monitoring. As a newcomer in premier we more often lose than win. It seems like the foreign market is easier to deal with in the january window. When a lot of clubs fight are interested in players, it usually takes a long time for the transfer to go through, and when one is on the losing part there isn't much time to find interesting prospects before the window closes.

Good point: in the past England have often had a hard time against Scandinavian countries, and this suggests a high standard of play. Moreover, as you indicate, players from the region often do well in the PL.
