McFadden considers his option

McFadden considers his option

After two weeks on trial at Molineux James McFadden has now left Wolves to consider his options.

We have offered him a deal, but apparently face competition from other Premier League clubs, with one reportedly Sunderland.

'We made him an offer, but I understand he has got a few offers.' our Mick told the Express & Star.

The Scotland international had been heavily linked with a move to Molineux for weeks, but things took a positive turn for the 28-year-old when he was invited to join the squad for training.

He has been a free agent since being released from Birmingham after suffering damaged cruciate knee ligaments 13 months ago and question marks remain over this fitness, but he has impressed over his trial spell and McCarthy would like to keep him.

But now we have to wait while he decides which club to join.

Vital Wolves Comment: I've always thought that he's probably a gamble worth taking if the contract is written correctly.

Every signing of course is a gamble, but someone with an injury record is always deemed as a bigger risk, so get something written in there that protects the club and things should be fine.

Of course now that he has other options Sunderland or whoever might offer him better personal terms, but hopefully considering we've given him a break by training with us that we should be in a good position.

Mccarthys already stated he's not coming to us.... cant blame him, we will have offered peanuts and 4 straight defeats including 2 humiliating ones at home cant have reassured him much.

Well I think MM wants him, but your right he won't have been impressed with the standard that we have shown over the last few games!!

I think Doyle and Fletch are incredible talents, if Ohara would stop trying to cover himself with glory and firing every which way into the stands, Henry back passing and Hunt grows his hair, I think they will score much more often than present. Mcfadden was only for cover anyways, and Ive been hugely impressed by Wards performance up front, so Im not all that concerned... Anyone who's read my rants will know i think the defence is why we will run the real risk of relegation. We need Foley, Zubes and even Doherty in there ASAP - not the 4 numpties we have at present...

Mcfadden would only be cover. SEB (when fit) is better IMO. I would much rather see JOH playing KH's role with Adlene in front of him too. Don't think we'll keep Jarvo for much longer either. Fancy him to be on his bike to Arsenal come Jan transfer window. UTW!!

Mick probably asked him if he would play left back.

EVERTBODY KNOWS WE HAVE PROBLEMS. If we sign Mcffaden is he the one to score the goals no he is not we have a goal scorer in S Fletcher who has proved 8 goals in 12 games.To me if Doyle is fit will always start first even thou his record is 1 goal per 4 games.As for defence if Zubar is fit why is he not playing everyone talks about Milijas i agree is a good player but if you need to defend is he the one to rely on. If you play Milijas you then play 4-5-1 with Doyle up front where are the goals comeing from to win if you cant score you cant win and it has been proven with out FLETCHERs goals we would now be in the fizzy pop league plus the help of the brums.

Great point. How many games did he get to play last season? I think he is a strong character and there must have been crossed words earlier in the season. His ratio speaks for itself. The sorry picture I get in my head is that if you run around like a silly arse in training and demonstrate willing to kick someone you get a game. In Mick We Trust has been the blue print from the top, but the faith is wearing very thin and beyond giving their all, our squad is succinct to buckling under pressure, I am getting a bit bored of seeing the same mistakes for more than two years. Once fair enough. Twice questionable. If you are still making the same mistakes into a third year what makes you think a fourth or fifth things are going to get any easier. This is another relegation battle.

As Lady Bracknell observed in The Importance of Being a PL Team, to make one mistake is a misfortune but to make two mistakes seems like carelessness ... and to make a third mistake smacks of incompetency.

Re Fletch. My main interest this weekend will be on him not picking up an injury.We are seriously up the brown creek,with no means of propulsion, if he does.I agree with Big Tasty, in his opinion that SEB is stronger cover than McFadden. As far as the same old mistakes, it goes back to the ridiculous belief that all players always improve season after season. The passing of time doesn't guarantee improvement,at all. There are three possibilities, not just the prefered one.Either a) they improve b) they stay the same or c) they get worse. And so it is in all sports and in plenty of other walks of life, too. Same old mistakes? Same old drivel,that's for sure.I expected bottom five/six this season and i've seen nothing, from the teams selected, to change that view.
