McCarthy targets Arsenal raid

McCarthy targets Arsenal raid

Wolves are always looking to strengthen and this January will be no different and reports suggest we are interested in Arsenal's Emmanuel Frimpong.

The 19-year-old midfielder has made 12 appearances for Arsenal this season, with matches in both the Premier League and the Champions League thus far this season.

But he is far from a regular in the Arsenal side and could be available on loan once the transfer window opens in January.

McCarthy has watched him a couple of times and he could end up being a target.

"We played Arsenal in the reserves and I watched them the other night against Manchester City," Wolves gaffer Mick McCarthy told the Birmingham Post.

He continued: "January is not the greatest of times to get them but of course we are looking. If it can be done we`ll do it.

"Some players just need to go and play, so you can get a loan player.

If yu get him, he'll be hugely popular. He has a tendency to be a bit reckless, but has curbed that a bit. A real, all action midfielder. Strong in the tackle, carries the ball forwards very well. He's got a good future in that destroyer role and, as far as you guys are concerned, is an upgrade on Karl Henry in that respect I think.

Sounds like Adlene Guedioura Mark II, the one that has passed through the puppy-training stage.

If he can pass the ball forwards he's an upgrade to karl... my mate at work, a lifelong gooner rates him very highly and reckons we'd do well to get him on load.. Also hoping (against the odds i guess) that the onouha link has some merit... we are woefully understaffed at the back.

Just make sure you play him against Samir Nasri.

I'd disagree with you slightly regarding KH's passing ability,AdMant. In that I don't think he can pass a ball sideways or backwards, either.As poor a player that has ever played regular PL football.

I dissagree with you all we should be going for Craig Gardener of Sunderland on loan or permenant scores goals from midfield 10 for the brums last season and a holding midfielder with PL experience.Him and Onuoha of MC CH plus can play LB as well then get 2 loan signings as well.

I think Karl is a very good PL player. He is unfairly vilified at times, other times rightly so. His problem for me is not his ability, it’s his decision making. This season we have seen him make a few great long-range passes and more recently, a few surges into the box. Add this to his workrate and tackling abilities and you have a very solid player. Alas life is not so simple though. When he’s put under pressure by opposing players when in possession his only thought is not to give the ball away. The safe option. Pass it sideways. Pass it backwards. Just keep the ball. The problem is this ruins momentum and slows the play down. IMO I think Karl would make an excellent right-back. Cardio for days, strong in the tackle and defensive-minded. From that position he could pass the ball sideways all day long and still win MOTM. UTW!!

Not necessarily SB. Granted he's not as attack minded as Zubes but he's certainly got the stamina to get up and down the flank. In either case, it's irrelevant. He's not as good as Zubes or Foley. Back to square one. On a seperate note, pleased to see Vidic out. Lets hope we can emulate Basel's performance on Sat.
