Merseyside pair plan Wolves raid?

Merseyside pair plan Wolves raid?

With Liverpool after Matt Jarvis and Everton keen on Kevin Doyle, Mick McCarthy has given out a hands-off warning.

But as hands-off warnings go, this one wasn't great and is more of a hands-off-unless-you-offer-big-bucks-and-then-we-will-talk warning.

'If someone wants to try and take Matt and Kevin off us, any of our top stars, it is not going to be easy for them - and they are going to be expensive.' McCarthy told the Daily Mail.

He continued by trying to clarify his stance: 'That's not saying they are for sale. They are not for sale.

'But neither was Cristiano Ronaldo a couple of years ago, neither were Fernando Torres and Andy Carroll this season - but £50 million and £35 million changed that a little bit!'

So basically make a decent offer and we may well cash in.

Which of course is the way things work in football, so are the comments really a hands-off plea or more of a come and get them cry?

Vital Boxing - Bellew Wants Lebedev Next


sell em, what the hell, we obviously need the money - 3rd year in the prem and associated TV revenue, Morgan having pledged £30 million to the club, we must be stoney broke. If we spend all those millions on a stadium, then sell our stars you will see upheaval in Wolverhampton. We need to buy, not sell. the 50/50 split betwen Mick supporters and detractors will swing heavily should we be in a relegation scrap come January.

Doyle never went when Arsenal came sniffing , If someone came in with 15-20 for Jarvis id be tempted , You could sort our defensive problems out with that money and a new winger too !!! , Dont want Jarvis to go but a new winger is replaceable , Doyles strength workrate and sheer presence worries defenders and hes the key cog to our team , Does not score as many goals as both he and us would like but hes just a class act and not replaceable in my eyes where as Jarvis ( for stupid money ) could be !!!

Ad Mant you are a pratt, the second word is OFF! how can there be anybody against Mick???? ok the guy has his faults, but name me anybody (apart from God!) who hasn't, some so called fans will take this club down to the depths of the bhattis and beyond. Has Mick say's every player has their price and they would be expensive if they come in for them, would you refuse £35 to £50 million for Doyler? or £8 to £12 million for Jarvo? they are not for sale -BUT! and that's the question. We are Wolves.............Onwards and Upwards without the anti Mick brigade.

Well Everton have to sell to buy so they wont have big bucks to splash on Doyle and Liverpool will choose Young or big european name over Jarvis anyways so i dont think we have to worry ! , There are hardly any MM haters , Every Wolves fan I know is behind MM , the VERY few that are not behind him just dont appreciate the job hes done for us and know F!CK all about football , He is steadily building a good side and we will have the stadium to match , Why keep our good players and spend silly money on more players and then end up doing a Leeds or Pompey etc , just be thankful we have an amazing chairman , an MD who is prooving everyone wrong and a manager that says it as it is and has players that will run through a brick wall for him , the 3 combined have saved this club from averageness in the championship into a premiership side on the up :-) SM JM MM doing a superb job and keep it going !

Oddjob79 - well said! We were stuck in the Championship for the best part of 20 years because we kept chopping and changing and thinking we had a god-given right to be in the Prem. Think back 5 years - I think the best 5 years we've seen at our club in a very, very long time.

If I were in Mick´s skin, I would refuse 8 - 12 for Jarvis. But I would be tempted to accept 35 - 50 for anyone. As I said in the other article, anything below 20 is a bargain for Jarvo or Doyler-------- While Jarvo could be replaceable for the right money, Doyler is the player we must keep ! Can you imagine Doyler playing against us ? Like a terrible nightmare. F-O anybody, who wants to steal him from us !

Young is going from Villa for 14 millionish and you think ours are worth more?we need a little perspective on here and join the real world.

Young is linked for 22.5 ive read this morning and what did he do against us really ? the same as Jarvis did against the Villa !
02/06/2011 15:22:00
Pratt Off ??? Never heard the saying myself. Perhaps Sarcasm is above you Johnwolf, then perhaps so is reading as I clearly never stated a personal opinion just facts and a spot of sarcasm. I said we dont need the money. Fact. I said If we are in the relegation zone come January Mick's job will quickly come under scrutiny, another Fact. Bloody well read an article first before gobbing off like some drunken ape

Oddjob - Firstly nearly half of the poll alongside dont think Mick is the man to take us fwd... Personally Im one of the Unsure. Secondly, just because some disagree with you doesnt mean they know F all about football. the reasons you name for Mick being a good manager are all legitimate - he has kept a nucleus of young loyal (and importantly talented) players, Morgan has stood by him, and we have earned (with a spot of luck) a third season in the prem. The reason some, including myself question Mick, are the other legitimate reasons. His persistence with players who arent up for the job, but clearly in favour. Not addressing our defence, and some rather "interesting" substitutions throughout the year that left you speechless at times. Everyone is entitled to their opinion thats what these forums are for, I dont think there are too many people who dont want Mick in charge, but there are a lot who have some fears that the same mistakes will be made again next season. And no one, not even Mccarthy himself wants another season like last. Peace out.
