Jamie The Wolf?

Jamie The Wolf?

A nasty case of the Monday Mornin' Blues today so having reached home at the reasonable hour of 7 pm, as opposed to 9 which has proven an unpleasant norm, I settled back to catch up on the news, and still bouyed by the Jarvis call up cracked a cold one after reading Jamie O'Hara's comments on not only our chances of survival, which included a points target, but more importantly speaking of the club with more than a on eye on playing a part in it's future.

The most pleasant read amongst his words shared with the Express & Star were around.... "We are building a side here......" spoken almost as if he had been part of the furniture for some considerable length of time.

O'Hara has become an instant favourite amongst fans and his new team mates, but the player seems to have taken an equal shine to his new surrounds. Whilst little is ever set in concrete, we are to believe that the 24-year old was signed on loan with an agreement in place for a permanent switch in the event of our survival.

If that is true, it will prove another deal of admirable craftsmanship by The Jez because let's face it- his performances for us already must be turning heads of other clubs who may now be wondering why they did not make a move for him themselves.

O'Hara is a quality without doubt, who's promising Tottenham career was hindered by injury. Never the less he continued to show great promise at Portsmouth and following his latest return from injury we are reaping the benefit of what may at first have proven something of a gamble.

His performances so far have made a mockery of any such suggestion, adding a whole new dimension to the midfield in his attacking play, and goals (already) and at Villa on Saturday, playing a deeper role than we may have anticipated and put his foot on the ball to take the sting out of attacks or maintain possession long enough to be able to pick out the right pass.

O'Hara seems a character with his feet firmly on the ground; on the pitch he has already shown his versatility. Quality shines through and if he proves our first summer signing, (let's keep the optimism flowing) not if but WHEN we stay up :) then it will go a long way in helping us secure players of similar quality, of which I would hope us to sign at least two, maybe three.

O'Hara himself appears to share the optimism around the club at the moment whilst maintaining a realistic approach and urging his new team mates to stamp their mark on safety.

Our most recent poll makes for a suddenly curious read, because the 39 points (safe), whilst more than realistic at the time, will now most likely, almost certainly result in a relegation. O'Hara has set a target and wants Wolves to hit it before going into the last game of the season.
With a measure of the season thus far, he said "The league is crazy but our target for the season, having spoken to the boys, is 43 points, with one game left to play against Blackburn....... We`ve got a lot of work still to do, but we want to be safe by the last game of the season. That`s our aim.'

Jamie O'Hara is yet another player identified by the club to fit the young and hungry blue print. Having him at the club can only enhance chances of staying up, so let's hope come the summer he is signing on the dotted line as the first of more to follow.

All The Best.

From a spurs fan. I think OHara is a great talent. He can play the role what Parker is playing at WestHam. Its a shame that he cant find a spot in current spurs team. He realises that he needs first team action. I am very happy for him to be in Wolves side. I hope you keep Jarvis as well, seems real quality. I am very confident that you will survive and finish as high as 13-15th position. All the best.

Cheers SYD. He proved his worth at Pomp, and so quickly again following an injury at Wolves. I have tremendous respect for Harry and his decisions but Spurs folk seem resigned to not seeing O'Hara in a Tottenham shirt again? I hope this rings true and that we have him on a long term deal come the summer. Would like to hear from more Spurs fans also on this one if you care to share the word. Thanks again mate, and good luck for the rest of the season.

We must sign him on a permanent basis - he is just the sort of midfield dynamo we have been lacking since Alex Rae. I agree with SYD he would have the same impact on our team as Parker does for the Hammers.

Yes. We Spurs fans are resigned to seeing him leave because he is incredibly open for a footballer. He says that he wants first team football, and it is unlikely at Spurs. When Huddlestone comes back, then 1-2 out of Modric, VdVaart, Sandro, Lennon, Bale, Huddlestone must be on bench - O'Hara knows that he is behind that lot. We would like him to stay, but he won't....and he shouldn't because he is good enough to be a Premiership regular. We owe it to him to let him chase his dreams. He has great character and dependability and versatility - not to mention ability. I think he matches you guys well. He could become a Wolves legend. I have been tracking this guy since he was a youngster at Spurs, and he always excelled on loan. I have no doubt that he would fancy to continue at Wolves and do well. I believe you guys have more than enough to stay up, and I think you will be safe. What a result against the Villa last weekend! (We also took 6 points off them for you!)

Spot on comparison there Astral- Alex Rae- and how over the years we have missed such a player- both he and O'Hara are a throw back. Thanks to Tony for that breakdown- again says a lot about the player that the Tottenham fans are both acknowledging his quality and happy to see him get the first team football he deserves and has worked so hard for. That is a fine crop of midfielders that Tottenham boast and it helps add weight to the article above this one, regarding Michael Mancienne and as to whether a player is going to be happy at a club where he is restricted to a handful of games or is prepared to take the plunge and find himself a club that he can establish himself at and become a hero. O'Hara has made it crystal clear he wants regular football and it is fair to say there will be some celebrating to be done if and when we sign him. Now bring on Newcastle.

At the end of the season I shall write a retrospective, one that will vary according to the final result. However, as I ponder why we are currently in with a real chance of survival, one of the reasons has to be the loan signing of O'Hara.

Yeah, signing him would be a fantastic thing for Wolves, but the problem is IF (I don't think we will) we go down, he won't wanna play in the championship!

He won't and he should not. I would say it was written into any agreement that he signs at the end of the season on the basis we stay up and for a fairly significant, yet just fee. I just hope the club have this agreement in writing, and we do as we are led to believe. I will be publishing an interview over the next few days with the top writer at Vital Tottenham to get their thoughts.
