Fletcher - Not for sale

Fletcher - Not for sale

Our Mick has issued a hands off warning to anyone who was contemplating making a January transfer move for Wolves striker Steven Fletcher.

With seven goals in his last eleven Premier League games, Fletcher is bound to be attracting some interest, but if Wolves have any hopes of surviving in the Premier League this season, we simply cannot afford to sell him.

Even a fee in the region of what Liverpool paid Newcastle for Andy Carroll would look cheap if we were to sell and ultimately were relegated in May.

Fletcher is simply that important to us.

"You can put 'Mick McCarthy denies any interest in him` if you like, but I haven`t had a call about him," McCarthy told the Express & Star.

He continued: "Even if I got a call, there`s not a cat-in-hell`s chance of him leaving.

"I`d tell people where to go, of course. We don`t want any calls about him and there`s not a chance we`d sell him. He`s too valuable to us."

I also see that there are several clubs after Berra as well. The fact is Mick won't sell unless his hand is forced. I can't see Fletcher going anywhere this window, but IF we do stay up it might be a different kettle of fish. Berra moving is only paper talk with the merry go round due to start with the movement of one person!!

On the other hand, I would be pleased to see George go because he deserves to get a regular game of football somewhere ... and his transfer would generate some money.

If I was Emperor of Football (as I should be) there would be regulations in place outlawing any mention in the media of transfers unless a club confirms they have received a bid.I hate this window, in the same way I do the close season.How many names were being thrown around in the summer? 'Stories' about us buying and selling players that we either didn't buy or sell.Added to this the really infuriating way the E&S turns an answered question into a 'story'. MM saying Fletch is not for sale after having received a definite offer, is a story. Answering some banal question at a presser, is just that.If I was Emperor of the Media (as I should be) i'd ban stupid, pointless, groundless questions from journo's and publicly execute those whose mouths let us all down. Would sure liven up the 'half-time entertainment' at The Mol...'liven up' probably not being the best turn of phrase, but i'm sure you get my drift.

A4D you should be the Emperor of all that you want to be mate. But I completly agree with your comments on the whole transfer speculation thing, It's just bored press out there without any clue about what is going on!! The half time bit would suit me fine!

Elokobi, Guedioura, Vokes, Keogh - out Bassong, Onouha, Kenwyne Jones - in And I'll be a happy man :)

Smithy not to sure of getting rid of Guediora, but agree with the others. Now Kenwyne Jones, don't really rate him at all, big lad falls over a lot, Jay Boothroyd ring any bells. I agree we need another Stiker, but it's getting someone who is proven, and unfortunately there are very few around. I don't really have an alternative, but mabye a loanee could come in, but from where I don't know sorry.
11/01/2012 15:02:00
I think that Jones would be a good acquisition: he is a big lad, is good with his head and feet and, as his Christian name implies, he's capable of mixing it up. If he were to come, would that mean the departure of Doyle? As a general point, I know it's a difficult business and we have to be careful in our negotiations but I wish Jez would be realistic in his assessment of the sums he should be paying in fees and wages. If he were to give a little, we might acquire quality players. I'm looking forward to going to WHL on Saturday. Watch out for the report later that evening.
