Wolves - The right direction

Wolves - The right direction

Much has been said over the last few seasons since Mr Morgan took over the club about where the club is heading.

Well in that time we have seen the club promoted to the premiership and stay there for our third consecutive season, under the guidance of our most successful manager for a very long time.

The squad has been improved by the addition of some quality signings over the last three years.

This season sees the start of the redevelopment of Molineux, keeping the club at the heart of the City.

There is also the upgrading of the Compton training ground involving several parties involved in the local community.

The club is going in the right direction, but it is not going to fast too quickly.

How many times has the bubble burst for clubs trying to do it all at once, Leeds, Southampton and Portsmouth bear a stark reminder that you have to take your time.

Remember back to the dark days of the eighties and nearly going out of business twice, being in the 4th division, knocked out of the FA cup by Chorley, having a ground with only two stands open and remember how far the John Ireland stand was from the pitch.

They were the bad times, but now we are where we belong, in the top flight.

Doing this right and sensibly, and most importantly heading in the right direction!

True to the facts, SS. These are the foundations - to keep in mind when rashly calling for heads on the back of a bad run. Only one other PL club is not in debt. Forward with sense. Out of sense cometh progress.

I hope its the start of some good times to be a Wolves fan again. We just need to make sure we stay in the Premier League for the next few seasons so all this building work at Molineux and Compton won't be wasted.

I agree entirely with the view expressed by Dan. The cautious fiscal policy employed by the Steve Morgan is laudable only as long as we remain in the Premier League. If we should fail to achieve this over the next few seasons then it would suggest to me that perhaps we should have put investment in the team one step ahead of all the money being spent on the ground and especially at Compton....

I agree with both sides of the argument, as expressed above. I suspect that lovesW's aphorism, 'out of sense cometh progress', was meant as a warning against rash spending. And he is right: WW should not chuck money around and wantonly go into the red. We all know of clubs, who have done that and have paid the price. On the other hand, as DJS and AT point out, it makes little sense to spend huge sums on grandiose schemes, which turn into white elephants if we do not stay in the PL. And going down would cost us millions too. So, it might pay to speculate a little, that is, spend some money to strengthen the side. After all, we are in the black, we have a chairman who is willing to invest in players as well as in plant and, if need be, we can realise our marketable assets. Last Saturday's win was brilliant and I personally thought that it indicated a real improvement in the quality of the play. But it is only one result and there is a long way to go, especially as continued progress rests on the fragile thread of the fitness of a few key players. At the very least we need cover in one or two positions. We will have a better indication of how we are likely to fare this season after the Fulham game and, depending upon the outcome, management should put their hands into either one or two pockets.

Southbank i agreee i have all ways said we need a couple more players in if they cost 5-10 m we have the money as you have said we will not go bust but what happens if we go down we are now the new brums sell everyone who Mick has bought on the cheap ex Javis Kightly. What happens to Doyle Hunt Hennesey Jarvis Johnson if relegated are we then stuck in champs league for how long or do we stop work on the stadium to spend on players to get where we belong we are already here why not make shore we stay if not we could end up another LEEDS or worse we have already been down the bottom dont want to go their again. Example Bahti brothers sorry if my spelling is wrong thank you Mr Haywood and now thank you Mr Morgan for your money but only if we spend a little bit more just to be safe please tell MM there is money to spend LB CH Holding Mid field i think this would make every WOLVES fan very happy if this could happen.
