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

Craddock ready to prove himself

Jody Craddock is not ready to hang up his boots just yet and will fight for a new contract this summer.

Craddock has spent nine years at Molineux but just like everyone else he has to start with a clean slate following the appointment of Ståle Solbakken.

Solbakken has invited Craddock in for the first couple of weeks of pre-season to prove his fitness levels and possibly sort out a new contract.

Craddock is fully focussed on trying to earn a new deal after the initial shock of son Toby being diagnosed with leukaemia.

The two-and-a-half-year-old is suffering from acute lymphoblastic leukaemia and started treatment at Birmingham Children's Hospital earlier this month.

'I do want to carry on playing, I won't deny that I was within a whisker of retiring with what has happened to Toby but he's doing well and it's going to be a long course of treatment when hopefully things will settle down.' Craddock told Wolves Official Website.

He continued: 'I want to carry on playing football, particularly after a disappointing season, to prove to myself and everyone else that I can still do it.'

Vital Wolves Comment: Obviously the Premier League was one step too far for Craddock, but with the side back in the Championship, perhaps Craddock can still offer the club something? At 36 he obviously offers the experience but who knows, perhaps he can still cut it at this level?

As much as I and probably many fans love JC, common sense has to over-rule sentiment.. Yes mabye JC could cut it for another season in the Championship, but i would rather bring in someone (or 2) who will cut it in the Premier league too.. Get in 1 or 2 centre halves that can grow a solid understanding ready to perform if, fingers crossed, we do go straight back up.

True, MMDs. And in another sense too: as long as his age permits,JD should marshal the defence in the absence of anyone else who is able to. Keep him in reserve for that, even if new defenders are signed. In the past he has done that much better than one who was brought in specifically for that and failed disastrously.

I think his experience is invaluable. Plus, when has he ever let us down? I can't remember the last time that's for sure. Really hope he makes the ten year mark for us not just out of sentiment but because I think he can really help the younger players and come in if needed. He is hardly going to be a regular. I hope he stays with the club in some coaching capacity although I think he;s already said management is not for him. Maybe he could stay on part time after. The poll seems to have taken a wonky turn. I think his approval rate was up to 65% at one point but now 53% say 'who.' I smell mischief.
