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

Chance for the youngsters to stake a claim

The announcement of Ståle Solbakken as Wolves boss really did signify a change in direction for Wolves.

That obvious direction following relegation from the Premier League is down, but the new man in charge has been trusted with the role of rebuilding the squad ready for a promotion push next season.

With little experience of the English game and even fewer experiences of life in the Championship or the Wolves squad, everyone at the club really will start with a clean slate come pre-season.

But while the obvious focus is surrounding the first team players like Ronald Zubar, Christophe Berra, Nenad Milijas and Stephen Hunt who all need their current contract situations sorted sharpish.

It also gives a chance to the likes of Jake Cassidy who spent last season out on loan with Tranmere in League One a chance to stake a claim.

'When we come back there is a new manager in charge who we need to impress.

'He'll have his own ideas on what he wants to do but it's up to us to stake a claim.

'I'm looking forward to getting back for pre-season.' Cassidy told Wolves Official Website.

It's the perfect situation (if being relegated from the PL can be defined as 'perfect') for our youngsters to stake a claim. A number of them have been out on loan and have gained in skill and experience as a result. And, boy, do we need some fresh blood. Moreover, they will not have featured in the video nasties that Stale has been looking at. Many of those, who have, are not starting with a clean sheet but with a big question mark against their name. Playing in the Championship will help our youngsters too because it will give them the opportunity to acclimatise to the demands of turning out for WW in a less unforgiving league, not that there won't be huge pressure on them to help get us out of it. If they are good enough, SS, unlike MM, will surely select them.

On a similar note did you see Scott Malone has now joined Millwall so will be playing against us next season. We sold him for £150k he moved on 5 months later for £750k

A typical enough story. Connor gave a couple a game but he was part of the regime that ignored our youth for five years. I have faith new bloke has his own ideas- already stating he wants to train with the players before making any choices, this will include of course having the likes of Doherty and Bath training with the team so yes I think they have a chance. Better than they have in a long time that is for sure.
