Wolves must establish themselves in Premier League

Wolves must establish themselves in Premier League

Wolves Owner Steve Morgan believes that establishing ourselves in the Premier League is a realistic target and a must for the clubs future.

In fact Morgan has virtually stated that he has gambled £40 million on it by stating that if he didn't think we could establish ourselves in the top flight then he wouldn't have approved the redevelopment of Molineux.

"If I didn`t think Wolves were going to be a permanent member of the Premiership, and that we were going to improve from being a dogfight in relegation, then we shouldn`t be doing it (redeveloping the ground).' Morgan told the Birmingham Mail.

He continued: "Let`s take the worst (scenario) - and I don`t even want to think this way - but say we are relegated this year. We`ve got to get back up. We just have to get back up, it`s as simple as that.'

So, why was so little money available in January? Does his statement mean that, should we be relegated, he will make available sufficient funds to ensure we get back? Something like the amount of money ear-marked for the new stadium should just about do it!

Does Mccarthy know how to make the next step? To Midtable security I mean. He is one of the best in the business at spotting cut-price talent. I will never argue that. But there comes a time when the notes section of the wallet needs to be opened and a couple big sticker purchase made. Instead of a record signing to warm the bench id much rather have seen a quality LB bought in, for example. There is no doubt that Hammil and Ohara are fantastic acquisitions, but we'll need higher callibre signings, especially at the back if we are to move up the table in future. Looklng fwd to a weekend of cracking fixtures !!! WE ARE WOLVES

Although I agree with what you say in principle - I think O`Hara is high calibre and it is important that we buy him as soon as possible but I dont think he will come cheaply. Mark my words he is improving rapidly with every game he plays and he would be a fantastic permanent signing. I am relieved to read that Steve Morgan believes that relegation followed by an immediate return would not be disasterous because we do stand a good chance of this happening although I desperately hope we do manage to avoid the drop....

It's not that easy to bounce back straight back, even if we possess a squad that is theoretically capable of doing so. It will cost money to buy targeted players, perhaps more so, if we are in the Championship, because they will have to be enticed to come. And for that reason they will not be given the chance because the management will not break their transfer fee or wage rules. That's laudable up to a point but some 'give' will be necessary.

I think Ohara's price is probably already down in black and white,surely taking him on loan is linked to an option to buy at a determined price.But lets not get ahead of ourselves,this all depends on staying in the promised land.

If we can get a win on Sunday, I think we have a real chance of avoiding the drop. In general, too, I am feeling a little more optimistic and that is due to three factors (a) our defence is improving (b) the impact that O'Hara is having on the team and (c) we are beginning to score goals in open play. Of course, my mood could turn black as a result of the next three games. I also find myself worrying about the fitness of key players in teams we no longer have to meet. Perish the thought that I also hope for season-ending injuries to key players in the teams of our relagation rivals.

Some fans would have us bankrupt in months, little money available in January?? Just take a look at how much money has been spent on players over the past couple of seasons and then compare it to the majority of other clubs in the league. We should be pleased with the figures we have spent while knowing that noone is gambling with our future, too many clubs are in financial strife, doesn't mean we should join them because a few fans want us to treat the club like a game of Championship Manager.

I agree that we did dole out a lot of money over the past couple of years ... but not all of it wisely (where are Fletcher, Mouyokolo Maierhofer et al?) By the time that the transfer window opened in January, the management was aware of that fact and therefore had to discount most of the outlay. In effect, they had to start again ... but they didn't, which suggest that they are somewhat unconcerned about relegation. If we do go down, we are going to have to rebuild our team from scratch as our stars will leave. Of course, that will bring in some money but will it be enough to win promotion, that is, if we do spend it wisely?

A family emergency meant I hardly looked over a paper in nearly two weeks let alone anything else but I am settled back at the control station with coffee at the ready- so what have I missed- talking over the Albion game (we can leave that one alone) and the 4-0 thumping of Blackpool. The Albion game was a pleasant distraction for, well, a good hour and a half shall we say- the Blackpool win would have proven one of greater pleasure if it wasn't for my computer repeatedly crashing every four minutes- regardless, we took four points from those in or around us and that is a better return over the course of two games than we have shown so far this season, and the amount we needed, at least. I said going into those two games that I wanted six points but really I would have been happy with the four holding the belief our safety will depend in the main part upon our remaining home fixtures. I have my stat book knocking around, but without referencing it at this early hour (it's not even 9am yet for heaven sake!) it does not take a genuis to note we have been plundering some goals since the turn of the year. We are beginning to reap the rewards for our forward play and I have to credit the players because rather than 'a turn in luck'- I'm not one who much buys in to luck, you scrore or you don't- we have proven clinical in front of goal this year, whilst most of last we were bemoaning poor finishing and wasted chances- furthermore some of our build up play just keeps getting better as the season moves on- if we were one of the bigger teams, we would be eating up a lot more airtime but I will settle for credit at the end of the season if it means staying up, rather than now. One thing I will mention, several of us have maintained that if we make the point per game ratio we should be safe- looking at the table sadly that is suddenly not proving the case- so we have to up our game a little more- on the bright side, looking at the fixtures we have one of the most favourable run ins and I think we can look to win 4 at home- throw in an away draw (two perhaps!) and we would be sitting pretty at the end of the season but to avoid defeat over 60% of our remaining games is a tall order. I'll be writing more tonight in the run up to the weekend but I will say now however tough this next game may prove, I believe we will win.
