O`Hara will make Molineux his home

O`Hara will make Molineux his home

For anyone beginning to panic over the deal to bring Jamie O`Hara to Molineux from Spurs, things are well in hand.

Wolves gaffer Mick McCarthy has confirmed that we will be signing O`Hara on a permanent deal soon.

The original loan move in January included all the details to make the move permanent in the summer, so it should just be a case of dotting the i's and crossing the t's on the deal that is believed to be costing around £5million.

"We`ve got a deal to do and I want to sign him. Jamie wants to stay and we will be doing it.' Mick told the Express & Star.

He added: "He has added real quality to us. He`s a real Premier League player and that is what we are trying to get in again this year."

Vital Wolves Comment: So that's the first signing of the summer hopefully wrapped up, now for some defenders please Mick.

Good business for both clubs.

ODDJOB79 - We are the opposite at Spurs. We make bids 5 mins before the deadline! We think you will be signing a gem in O'Hara, and I think he suits Wolves and MM perfectly. His great attitude and versatility was a double-edged sword at Spurs, which meant that he became utility-man, and never first-teamer...which was a shame. You guys will use him more productively and you will see the benefit. He goes with our blessing because we know that he deserves first team football. Good luck lads.

Oddjob: if he'd taken a longer look at VDM and Maierhofer, he might not have made those mistakes. On the other hand, I agree that Hunt and Fletcher proved to be excellent purchases ... in the long run! Incidentally, I have noticed that when we get guest bloggers, we seem to be the second team of many Spurs fans.

Well i used to be a Spurs fan for 1 season when Clive Allen banged all them goals in that 1 year in the late 80's then my dad took me up the Wolves , Bully got a couple and that was that i was hooked hahaha , his exact words were " no son of mine will support a London club haha , I always want Spurs to do well , Great footballing tradition and a peoples club , Hope they can push on next year , And with a full pre season behind him im sure O hara will shine next season if he comes :-) , Yeah Southbank he got 2 signings wrong but the Hoff was not expensive , neither was VDM but at least they were 2 signings Wolves needed at the time , they just didn't work out , all managers make mistakes , Ferguson bought Kleberson and Djemba Djemba remember hahaha , there were others that were great business too , Err Doyle ? , Hannehman , Zubar was a snip at 2 million as was Adlene , the only big money signings we made in Fletch Doyle and Hunt have all proved great business , Fletch took his time but some players need a season to settle ! ( remember Ronaldo , or in Spurs case Modric ? ) !

Hi Oddjob: you're right and I acknowledged that he did make a couple of good buys last season (and the Doyle signing the previous year gives him almost infinite credit in my book). However, you did lay yourself open for the jibe and I couldn't resist making it. Personally, I have been a Wolves fan (my local team) since the mid-1950s when I stood on the South Bank. That's part of my problem: I remember the glory days and it is difficult to settle for anything less.

Bit like my old man then who still lives in the 50's then and does my head in ! , and unless your touching 70 you wont have rememberd those title winning teams of 57/58 and 58/59 as my old man is 70 and he was 17 when we won our last title , And i cant imagne many 70 yr olds using the interenet to follow there team !!! hahaha , Oh and my ad said Utd would have won both there league titles if the Munich disaster never happened as they only won 1 of there final 14 games after the crash and still finished 8th i think it was ! , No doubt you probably compare McCarthy to great managers Wolves have had down the years ohhhhhh thats right we never had 1 besides Cullis , in 74 McGarry took us to the final and we won but hey we finished 12th with 41 pts but 3rd place lost 11 games so not the best league was it ! , and in 81 we won the league cup under Barnwell and finished 6th so not a bad year but hey the next year under him we finished 18th and the year after relegated so he really knew how to push a team forward , My point is you seem to be so negative towards McCarthy and now your going on former years where unless you there to witness and REMEMBER the Cullis era Wolves have never had another great manager so give MM a break as what hes done in 4/5 years is remarkable !!!! dont forget 12 pro's on the books when he took over !!!

I'm not quite 70 years old Oddjob but I do remember those title winning teams: I watched Wolves weekly between 1955 and 1960. Naturally, I rate Stan Cullis as the greatest manager we have had: his achievement speaks for itself. Known as a hard task-master and a strong disciplinarian, I wonder how he would have coped with the fluffy, overpaid stars of today ... or they with him! Leaving Cullis aside, MM rates quite highly with me and we needed someone like him after the dreadful Hoddle era. He clearly enjoys the support of the players too, as O'Hara's testimony so eloquently proves. That's why I found it so hard to accept the lack of motivation that the team displayed in some of the matches, especially the really important six-pointers. As I have highlighted in earlier threads, I did detect a whiff of complacency emanating from Castlecroft at times and, if so, that's unforgivable. And some of his team selections were difficult to understand. Even so, I think the tightness of the end of season struggle did concentrate his mind and, as a result, he did make some very astute decisions with regard to tactics and selection. It also made him realise the absolute necessity of acquiring solid, reliable PL standard defenders. We might get them now. I am willing to reserve judgement for the time being and give him a chance. But, he must ensure that we do not find ourselves in another long-running relegation battle. My (nearly) 70 year old heart won't be able to take it.

If your as old as my old man you would have been 13-18 now sorry but you would not have had a clue about football at that age so dont give me all your Knowledge on that team as my old mans 69 and he remembers certain players but not everything about that era , And unless your 6ft tall at that age you would not have seen much as it was all standing in those days too , Yes he was the greatest manager we ever had but we weren't the best team of that era , Busby Babes were , On the league if we avoid relegation by 1 point next year oll be happy , Its all about staying in this league , Our squad is not better than any of the clubs above us so i dont know what you lot expect , With the addition of 1 or 2 quality defenders we might climb a few places , but i expect the main aim is to avoid relegation again next year , anything more is a bonus !!

Oddjob: you're somewhat presumptuous, judging me on what I do know and remember according to the yardstick of your father. I watched the vast majority of games in the period 1955-1960: all of those at home; a number of away matches, including those in the cup (with my father); and was present at the prestige fixtures against Honved, Spartak and Real Madrid. In league matches I had a perfectly good view of the pitch from behind the goal on the South Bank and can speak with authority on a team, whose members I can recall more vividly than those from your vintage. We won the league in 1953-4 and again in 1957-8 and 1958-59 when I was watching them week in, week out. Don't tell me that they weren't the best team in the country at the time or that I don't know what I am talking about. You weren't there! If you are content to see our team teetering on the edge of relegation for the whole of next season, you're not much of a supporter. I have not been happy with this season's performance but I accept the existence of a second season syndrome. We survived - just - but we should be thinking of pushing on from here. Like you, I think we can do it but, as you suggest, we need to buy two central defenders and a LB. Chin up, Oddjob, we might get them and, as a result, surpass your modest expectations.
