Doyle boost for Wolves!

Wolves have been given a boost ahead of the new Premier League season with the news that Kevin Doyle might be fit for Wolves after all!

As discussed over on the Vital Wolves message board initially Doyle was believed to be out of action for around three weeks after he was sent home from international duty by Ireland boss Giovanni Trapattoni.

But once he returned to Wolves, it was hoped that the injury wasn't as bad as first feared and that has proven to be the case.

"Yesterday he was 70-30 in favour of playing and I`m hoping that`s gone to 90-10 today.' Wolves gaffer Mick McCarthy told the Express & Star.

He added: "He felt a bit more aware of it because it was his knee.

"He just had a kick on Saturday and it was something from that that flared up, so hopefully he`ll play."

Vital Wolves Comment: It's a massive boost, not only in the short term, but if he had done his medial ligaments in his knee again, we would have to begin to wonder whether he was going to become susceptible to ongoing reoccurrences of this injury. But thankfully that doesn't appear to be the case so worry not!

If there is any doubt about his fitness, I would prefer him to wait a couple of weeks before returning. A short time out now could prevent him exacerbating an injury and therefore a long enforced lay-off. I want no repetition of last season's situation. To draw on my own experience, I would not have missed so many rugby matches if I had been more patient. On the other hand, I only had horse liniment and sticky plaster at my disposal rather than Compton's state of the art facilities.

More importantly......any news on O'hara. Believed have injured his knee in training today.

The mere mention that it was a possible recurrence of the same injury was a tremendous worry but I am beginning to get the feeling Trappatonit or whatever his name is does not care much for us, with his off the cuff remarks suggesting a player could be missing for a month or so. The wheels came off when Doyle got injured last season- from looking like we were more than holding our own we fell to bits, Mick hit the panic button 20 minutes into the game at Newcastle and for a while it just got worse from there. Fletch was outstanding in the final third but Doyle for me is by far our most important player. When that chap is on his game he does the job of three; the ball sticks to him like glue and he changes our dynamic completely. I would love to think he can play Saturday but I agree with all above- if he needs to ease that leg back with 15/20 minutes then so be it, but to be honest if he is not fit enough to start should we even bother risking him or just leave him out for the first few games and get him up to 100%. I have not heard anything about O'Hara but that would be a dismal loss if he has taken a knock. It's all simples- we have added a very good defender when we needed three. I do not expect an easy game of it by any strectch Saturday.

Spot on, Yorkie. Like you, I anticipate a very hard game tomorrow and, because of the holes remaining in the team, I am not confident of picking up any points. I think we are stronger this season but opposing sides know of our weaknesses and will exploit them.

This is why I think we are still 2-3 quality players short,one or two injuries and its back to the championship winning side of three years ago!.Surely we are going to bring in a couple more before the end of the month?.

I am sure that there are deals still to be done! MM knows that he has to strenghten in certain area's. But surely it must be time to start bringing in some of these youngsters into the squad. The big teams aren't afraid of blooding them so why aren't we giving them the chance!

I think its all smoke and mirrors. Mick made his feelings perfectly clear about pointless friendlies. Do the Math fellas!!! Personally I'm not worried about not signing anybody else. We have a team that will be better than last season, last season being the toughest PL season on record. Another season in the PL and I would expect a couple more quality buys. I'm not worried. We are better than we think. BTW has anybody seen that new Italian striker that Spurs have signed? Grabatelli!! HAHAHAAHaaar....UTW!!!

C'mon Cretemeister that's a daft question, of course i'm still packing the bong!! But in fairness there is some substance to my point - if i'd have said this time last season that those lads could raise their game to a level where we could take points off the top teams you'd have all said 'Tasty, take another hit son'. I did, but its still true. lol!! Can't wait till tomorrow...UTW!!
