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

Half Empty? or Half Full?

The transfer window has closed and all of our business is concluded.

Most of the teams around us have spent money, especially West Ham who have bought in a significant amount of players as have Birmingham and I suppose have now thrown down the gauntlet so to speak to the other teams around or 'hovering' around the bottom of the table.

News of Andy Carroll on his way to Liverpool is I think, of far more interest to us 'transfer starved Wolves fans', the amounts of money involved are truly staggering but it just might cost Newcastle their premiership status by the end of May.

Andy Carroll has been hugely involved with scoring goals to give Newcastle a great first half to the season and I think they will struggle without a replacement.

So without exactly 'breaking the bank' so to speak Wolves may just see a light at the end of the tunnel, after the next two weeks we embark on a fairly good run in to the end of the season and I firmly believe that our chances have improved dramatically without us kicking a ball in anger!

We have not bought many in, but we have not lost any players either, this so called window could have a huge effect by the end of the season, not by what we have done but by what other clubs have done on this eventful record breaking transfer day!

In what looks to be a calculating gamble by all clubs? Do you fill the glass so to speak and hope for a quick turnaround in fortunes or do you stick with a half empty one and stick with what you've got and hope for an improvement in the second half of the season?

I hope for the latter of these two options and that we can do enough to remain in the top flight for another season.

Point well raised Crete but I think they have done enough to stay up, another 3 wins maybe but this may prove Ashley's ultimate eff up. For some interesting reading hit the Newcastle page and see the response from the fans- it will also be interesting to hear what Pardew has to say on things, and what they are going to do for goals. I wished relegation on them following the Hughton sacking; Ashley, according to what I was reading (makes perfect sense) moves increasingly closer to recouping the money he has put into the club (money he seemed to have wished he hadn't- refer to his desperate attempts to sell the club following relegation.) Whilst it would take a disatrous run in from them to see them take the drop, this bloke has screwed that club over so many times and this might be breaking point with regards fan revolt. Considering the fall out from their relegation some which how far the club would plumet, I don't think anyone would dare dream they'd return in such swift fasihon- people, myself included expected them to struggle but they readjusted to the Premiership like they had not been away- all over seen by Hughton who Ashley had to wisdom to fire. The fans were not thrilled with Pardew and many were staring at the 5 year deal they gave him with dread. I obviously don't read about them day in day out, but some have described that Ashley had made assurances the player would not be sold, have claimed he held him back to keep him free from injury, and most pertinently must have sat back stroking a cat, cigar on mouth watching the clock tick away on deadline day, smirked when Torres was leaving, laughed at 25 million pounds (too much already for this player) and put the word, give me another ten and he's yours. I can't imagine any other club, if we measure ability against transfer fee, ever matching this. He is a good player and he scores but the price is an outrage and you wonder where all the money suddenly appeared from. I am chuffed with O'Hara, Hammill could well prove a surprise quick hitter. We were crying out for a left back but we have what we have now and the story will tell itself. The money and players the likes of Villa, Blues and West Ham have spent/brought in concerns me as they are all within points of us but their levish spendings are no guarantee- some will work others won't- I think there is too much turmoil regardless at West Ham and if they do go down they have a serious financial situation on their hands. I still don't see Birmingham suddenly setting the world on fire. As things stand we are 19th so ultimately it us up to us, and if we manage to win at Bolton we can put that alongside so of the other heroic wins we could care to mention as it's relevance is huge and they are having one hell of a season. Believe!

The worry is of course NYC our track record against the bottom half. It's atrocious. I'd almost prefer a run in with nothing but the top 4. I've had my say - countless times - so now all thats left is to watch the Bolton game, which will be a BIG indication if this squad has what it takes. WE ARE WOLVES
