Will Norwich do Wolves a massive favour?

Will Norwich do Wolves a massive favour?

Fingers crossed fellow Wolves fans, Norwich City could be set to do us a massive favour as they have been linked with a move for Roger Johnson.

Its difficult to think of a player who has been less liked at Molineux in recent years, to the extent where he has been described as toxic by the E&S in a recent article.

But while to any outsider looking in that toxic tag might come across as harsh, its a fairly accurate description for his time with Wolves.

He was a liability on the pitch for his 10 month spell with us and was pretty much a disgrace off it.

He had notable bust ups with his team-mates and turned up to training in March still half cut from a night on the booze, then against Wigan he opted to clap the Wigan fans and ignore the Wolves fans when he didn't come back out at the end of the game to show appreciation to the supporters after a torrid season.

Wolves simply have to get rid of him and Norwich could be a decent suitor. We're also probably so desperate to get rid, that his transfer fee is likely to be nowhere near the £4.5million we shelled out on him.

But with him on a £40,000-a-week contract, the highest in our history, which also doesn't get cut following relegation, Morgan and Moxey will be keen to see him off the wage bill.

ClubCall believe Norwich will offer the 29-year-old a way out of Molineux, while a loan move from Sheffield Wednesday has reportedly been rejected.

Fans of those clubs will probably be hoping they don't land him if they read this article, but for the sake of Wolves lets hope no-one reads this short summary of his time with us!

the quicker he goes the better. it sickens me that he was on a bigger whack than Jarvo, Fletch or Wayne.... how the hell was that justified. mick mccarthy's biggest mistake.

It was a mistake Ad but one that we all applauded initially!!!! Just as a new manager is a gamble so are players. Sadly it didn't work out for him and what made it worse was that it also divided the dressing room. Ultimately it was Micks undoing but I wouldn't blame him for that. On paper it looked like a very sensible move. Let's get rid soon so we can bring the dressing room back together and show the same passion the guys had in our promotion year.

It never looked a very sensible move to me. Just a cursory glance at the Blues forums at the time revealed that he was never rated higher than average and was only seen to play well alongside Dann. I believe if we had shelled out the extra 2 or 3 million and went for Dann instead we would have done far,far, better and possibly even managed to escape the drop. Yet again the Wolves management opted to go for survival on the cheap rather than pay for quality. As long as we can get close to a couple of million then we should get rid.

I think the feeling of optimism, when he was signed, wasn't based on much knowledge of him as a player;other than when he played us, who would choose to watch AMcL's Blues team... or his Villa one for that matter? All I remember of our matches against BC in those days were of how boring they were.Other than being slightly aware of their defensive record suffering when Dann was injured and, as astraltrader mentions,their fans being less than glowing in their praise of him, I knew nothing much about him. I think the optimism over his signing for us was due to the common belief that our defence couldn't possibly be worse WITH him than it was WITHOUT him. Well now everybody knows, it could be and it was.

I agree with these comments but am refraining from adding to the negative views expressed here for fear of putting off potential buyers. So, I think we should discuss the possible departure of RJ in same horrified tone that we adopt when contemplating the loss of Jarvis, Fletcher and Hennessey.
