Revolving door at Molineux

Revolving door at Molineux

Andy Keogh, Sam Vokes, Stefan Maierhofer and Nenad Milijas all look set to make way at Molineux.

With new signings Roger Johnson coming into the club on a four-year deal earning £40,000-a-week and O`Hara on around £35,000-a-week our wage bill has just increased by almost £4million over the past month alone.

We have made some savings in the form of the departures of Greg Halford, Marcus Hahnemann, David Jones and Steven Mouyokolo`s loan to Sochaux, but they will not have brought the returns needed especially as we continue to look to add to the squad with a left-back and a central midfielder still on McCarthy's wish-list.

"Someone may have to leave but none of the players we want to keep.' McCarthy told the Express & Star.

He added: "Roger (Johnson) asked me if we`re losing anyone because he doesn`t want to come to a place losing players, but that`s not going to happen.

"If we can sign some more that would be great."

Vital Wolves Comment: It doesn't exactly come as the biggest surprise and quite frankly the way Wolves are run you just know that the revolving door will burst into action at some point, it's the only sensible way to run a football club.

When we brought in Andy Keogh, Sam Vokes, Stefan Maierhofer and Nenad Milijas they all either served their purpose or failed to live up to their potential, now it is time to ship them out and improve the quality of the squad.

I dont think any of us can see the back of the hoff soon enough, but the rest I not so sure about... Andy Keogh will make a great Champs addition, I honestly would have liked to keep him as a squad player..I mean, unless we are going to utilise academy players are we not a bit lean upfront with Vokes heading out (hopefully just on loan) leaving only SEB on the bench ? And then there is Milijas, who, had some great games, but perhaps was a bit erratic and will certainly not get a run out before OHara... but I will be sad to see him released.. REALLY Glad to see Foley extending his tenure though... really good player, versatile and pops in with the odd piledriver every now and then... just what we need WE ARE WOLVES

Well, those three strikers... ok if they leave, even thought we could keep Keogh...... but Milijaš ? Remember the last match against Tottenham, he was great then. I think Milijaš is the best competitor for O´Hara in central midfield, that we have.

Hey guys btw - I was on a trip in Prague two weeks ago and in one of the gifts shops I bought Wolverhampton Wanderers Matryoshka dolls ! :D (they had almost all English clubs up to the conference level). Will upload some images of them on the net later today, so you can see :)

Ad Mant raises the problem we will face if we adopt Crete Wolf's suggestion of offering SEB to Birmingham as part of the payment for Dann. It will leave us very short up front, especially if Arsenal put up silly money for Doyle. It won't happen but if it looks like a deal is being made (no matter how crazy), Wenger will have to drag him over my dead body first. Of course, we would buy in a replacement but who could replace Doyle? Don't answer that question, lovesW!

keep milijas
15/07/2011 12:53:00
Would,nt let Seb leave Banksy if Doyle was sold,but that wont happen so I think it makes sense IF we get a good deal on Dann.

I suspect Milijas may want out himself as he's never made it to being a consistent first choice. With O'Hara he probably never will. I'd like to see him stay but it may be down to him wanting regular first team football. It may also be that we think we can get a few quid back on him if we sell him now. As for the rest of the above, they will never make it as Premier League players. For their own careers it is probably best they move on. My one concern is that we end up a bit short staffed in midfield and up front. We've lost Dave Jones already, losing Milijas will leave us with issues unless there's someone else on the way in. The same goes for Keogh and Volkes. If both of them leave then we end up with just three senior forwards. I guess that means its one up front next year!

What's this then? Three strikers and a classy midfielder out, without any mention of possible replacements whatsoever, and elsewhere calls for Upson, Evans, Bassong, Dunne. Gladly the aim of those whose vision matters is not to replicate the Catenaccio Inter of the 60's or the boring Arsenal of a decade later. Only Wallace fits in with the medium/long- range policy - long, in his case, all the better. And forget about Dann; MM has implied one CB acquisition will do. Had Jez been serious about him, he would have struck a double deal with Brum. Jody, Berra and Stearman along with RJ will cope, will have to cope. As the commanding figure he is known to be, RJ should take charge of eliminating those mistakes. I will be the 'enfant terrible', Southbank, and answer that question with a short answer - Long. But don't get me wrong. I want Doyle to stay, as long as MM gives me his word that he will not be deployed as a lone striker. Otherwise, the answer is Long.

Well we have 4 wingers then thered Edwards Henry O'hara Guedioura and also Foley so there are 5 centre midfielders even if we lost Milijas and 6 with him so midfield is not a problem even if Milijas is sold , Moxey has almost admitted Wolves got Johnson for less than 7 million as he says rumours are very inaccurate concerning the price ! , Wolves cant afford Dann even with Blake going the other way so forget that signing , Only 2 i can see is Upson because he is free and a left back on loan but thats it unless we pick up a bargain somewhere ! , Shane Long perrrlease , he aint the answer at all , first time he has scored over 15 goals in the championship , Blake got 25 plus both seasons and has struggled in the prem so i dont hold out much hope for Long , his first touch is woefull aswell , cant believe you think the answer to replacing a rock like Doyle is a championship striker ! who in a big game in the play off final went missing and all Wolves games are big games !

hello lads just joined RJ is brill signing and would like to see other CH plus LB as well names Evans, Upson, Bassong.As for LB why not try for W.Bridge on loan Man City pay half the wages.For Holding Mid Fielder why not try for Owen Hargreaves.As for A.Keogh and S.Vokes not good enough for Prem sell at any price to get off books.As for the Hoff give away.
