'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Moxey remains defiant

Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey has remained defiant, standing aboard the good-ship Molineux just waiting for it to sink into the Championship.

"We don`t want to be giving post mortems out yet, We`re confident that regardless of what happens this season, this club will prosper.' Moxey told the Express & Star.

He might not feel it's time for a post mortem, but with many feeling that season is already dead and buried it's hardly surprising that some of us have already started to pick over the bones of a season that has seen us lose our Premier League status (of course a miracle could still happen......)

While I have always been a supporter of building the right infrastructure around Wolves, so that if we do drop from the top flight we do not fall into financial meltdown like other clubs, I am surprised by Jez's almost blasé approach to our impending doom.

He continued: "We have the foundations in place for success and the huge disappointment of this season will not create a situation where we are knocked off course from the medium to long-term objectives of the club.

"Those objectives are to establish this club in the Premier League by continuing to invest money in new players by being a club that develops its own players through the academy to the first team.

"We also want to provide supporters with better facilities in a stadium with stands close to the pitch that gives us a competitive edge, while ensuring we comply with UEFA financial fair play rules and run the club on a sound footing. This is a long-term project and we will not be thwarted from our aims.

Vital Wolves Comment: No matter whether Moxey remains confident about his aims and objectives, he will still be questioned on two main points from this season.

Was it really right to sack McCarthy without a real replacement in place?

Did the club really get the balance right between the off the field and the on the field objectives?

The egg Moxey and Morgan have on their face, will stick for a long long time, not just the humiliation we've all suffered at the manager fiasco, nor the fact that they are directly responsible hurling us towards relegation, nor the misappropriation of funds, all of which have longevity, but it will be EVERY KICK OFF, EVERY GAME, in the championship, sans Jarvis, Wayne Fletcher et al, that the effects of their incompetence will be on show. What a pair of complete cocks.

Whether or not the miraculous happens (and we gain 7pts while the three teams directly above us gain 0pts)the questions Akela asks will still be valid.Moxey is technically correct in saying that this isn't the time for post mortems; not while the maths don't yet have us doomed or saved.But, that time is soon.I said on another thread that JM reportedly warned and advised against sacking MM.Whatever his reasoning for advising his boss to stick with Mick, only Moxey knows. The debacle that followed,though, Morgan will have noticed, only served to vindicate Moxey's view that the wrong decision had been taken.The stringent player wage cap that the club operates and the division of club funds between squad/ground development (£8.6M/£18.5M) are not Moxey's to decide... alone. Here we simply don't know how much is direction from above and how much is JM saying "Look how little I can spend. Aren't I clever, Steve?",either way, Morgan has final say on expenditure, just as he does in the termination of a manager's contract. Moxey is the club's official mouthpiece, the spin doctor, the 'source close to the club' when he doesn't want to be quoted directly.Everything he says on the subject of WWFC (on or off the record) will come with the approval of his boss.

I don't recognize this appraisal of the club, whether as a true reflection of the current situation or as a realistic assessment of what we need to do to repair our fortunes over the course of the next couple of years. Demonstrably, we have not invested enough money in players to ensure our continued membership in the PL and there is nothing in JM's statement to suggess that he intends to do otherwise in the future. Indeed, he still seems to be prioritizing building work.Similarly, his avowed intention to bring on Academy players rings hollow, given how few of the youngsters have made the grade ... well, not at WW. Davis only got a chance because of injuries to other players. Whether you feel that JM is to blame depends on your view of Mr. Morgan's job spec of the CEO's job. If SM formulates the policies, leaving JM to implement them, it's the chairman's fault. If Mr. Morgan gives JM effective control, presumably within certain parameters, it's JM's fault. Of course, they could be cocking it up together and this would be really scary.
