McCarthy not expecting much more movement

McCarthy not expecting much more movement

Mick McCarthy doesn't expect much else to happen in this transfer window, but hasn't completely ruled out the possibility!

Just like in previous years we like to act swiftly in the summer, get our business done early and give the chance for the squad to work as a unit over the summer.

This year we've seen three new faces arrive at Molineux with the additions of Dorus De Vries and Roger Johnson, while perhaps strictly not a new face, but a new permanent addition in Jamie O'Hara.

Wolves of course will be linked with a variety of transfer moves both incoming and outgoing until the window closes on August 31. But the gaffer doesn't know just how busy he will be.

'We keep looking, but we don't know, There's still quite a lot of time to go in the window actually and who's to say we might turn someone over - there might be someone leave and someone else come in.' McCarthy told Wolves Official Website.

He added: 'And that's not Jarvis, Doyle or Fletcher.

'But something might happen. I'm not expecting it, but it could.

'We may possibly be able to do business and pick somebody up but there's nothing imminent.'

On the official site Mick does not rule out new signings, the Express & Star however has plucked a quote fro somewhere saying he does not expect any more players. It appears tongue in cheek because he jokes about signing a quality player 'who can use both feet... is quick etc and does not cost anything.' I fully expect us to sign two more players- if we don't some serious questions have to be asked. The only addition to the side that finished the season has been Roger Johnson.

i hope you are right or it could be 1 long season

I'd point out that he is creating a smoke-screen to hide his true intentions but, as I do not want anyone to rumble him, I'll say nothing.

Says on Sky aswell that he doesn't expect any signings but never rule it out , Wish they could just say " yes we are looking to add 1 or 2 or no thats the lot " , I dont have a problem with Ward and Berra for another season as i still think there are sides with far worse defences than us , but if we have only spent 7 million as rumours suggest then its very dissapointing , there are areas that need strengthening , a quality 3rd striker to add to the obvious positions , 18 million 1st year , 18 million 2 year , rumours suggest we have made a 15 million profit each season , and then we only spend 7 , if it stays this way we have been left short changed to pay for the stadium , if it doesn't then we all will be happy , as i said previously time will tell !

Oddjob: observations like the ones you have just made suggest that we really are in the market for additional players.
28/07/2011 19:05:00
Lets hope so !!!!!!!! just not RIDGEWELL , I would love it if Albion signed him , our wingers will run him ragged ! , And have they shortened the Molineux pitch ? , looks smaller on the stadium cam hmmm !

Like SB, i've been remaining optimistic that these fortnightly (it seems)statements by the club are smoke-screens.And ODDJOB has touched on one of the reasons I think that's the case. I think it would be a disastrous piece of P.R. for 16mill to go on a new stand and less than eight on players.Would they? Really?There's being thrifty,and there's being stupid.I don't, as i've said before,think we're automatic favs for the bottom three if we stay as we are, but I can't see any better than bottom half-dozen. It's not doom and's just the thought of our shiny, new,spent-more-than-twice-the-transfer-budget-on-it,stand being home to a championship crowd, season after next.It's happened before under our very own "Marshall Plan".Time will,indeed,tell.

The pitch? Glad you mentioned it. As we know,MM had our ptich made smaller following promotion in the hope that the rich, flair clubs couldn't pass around us so easily. So, if we started with a shrunken MM prefered pitch, and they are now moving the North Bank as close as they are now,has someone involved with the design made sure that there's scope for the pitch to be increased to it's former size,should we get a manager in future that wants a bigger park?I'M positive MM had the width reduced, but can't remember, now, if he had any of the length.I think he did. Anyone remember?
28/07/2011 19:36:00
excuse please who the hell gives a crap about the size of the pitch it does not matter its the players on the pitch that count. Moxey had already stated with the redevelopement of the stadium the stands would be closer to the pitch. What we need is some more transfer activity to bring better players in and get rid of the dead wood if its true and mick is happy with what we have then my opinion like most others is we are going to struggle we just dont have the depth in the squad if certain players get injured.Alldivisions i think it was just the width to stop top teams the space donw the flanks.
28/07/2011 23:14:00
I thought there would have been an official length and width for all pitches but mayybe the 3 M's spents sum of our transfer kitty on bribing officials. on another note looking at the poll it seems most people (including myself) seem to think Lb needs addressing. This is a question to all but, what lb would u bring in that is within our reach
