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

Wolves in turmoil

That mass exodus of players that has yet to come at Molineux? Well prepare yourself.

Just because we are in a strong financial position to many clubs that are relegated from the Premier League, never assume that means we will hold on to our best players.

Modern day footballers know all too well that this is a short career and their loyalty rarely extends past themselves.

In the past week we've seen Michael Kightly leave Wolves for a return to the Premier League with Stoke and Steven Fletcher hand in a transfer request to try and apply pressure on us to sell him.

Sunderland want to take Fletcher away from Molineux and the Scottish striker clearly wants to leave, but without an acceptable bid on the table we're all left in limbo.

Same applies to Matt Jarvis, who as yet hasn't handed in a transfer request, but if we continue to reject bids for him, don't bet against it happening.

Christophe Berra has also handed in a transfer request, while Adam Hammill has also been put up for sale.

Dorus De Vries and Ronald Zubar have also been subjects of transfer bids and with so many players unfocused on the job at hand it's hardly surprising we needed penalties to get past Aldershot in the Capital One Cup on Saturday.

Wolves boss Ståle Solbakken told the Express & Star: "We have to be honest and say everything`s a little unsettled, It would be stupid to say everything is fine because it`s not."

He continued: "We`re not giving players away for fun, We need to make sure we`re not on the back foot for the next three weeks.

"It`s also a tactical thing - do you buy before you sell or do you have to sell before you buy? Is that the gamble?"

i like stale, seems a straight talking chap, but with that moxey creep in the picture you never can tell whats gonna happen. also, am i the only one who thinks lee griffiths should be playing for us in the championship ? he seems to know where the net is.
We definately missed a goal scorer against Aldershot. Hopefully Siggy will be playing on Saturday to make amends!
Medicine Man
ok, but "siggy" is a completely unknown quantity... Doyle's a doubt, leaving only SEB as a proven talent at this level. Seem a bit light up front is all im saying. UTW !
Are we forgetting Nouble? ...Ill get my coat!
gregory house
Same old, same old then........... where are the goals going to come from???
Medicine Man
Well, guys, because of my Scottish contacts I knew how well Griffiths was playing for Hibs. But, did anyone listen to me? Typically, when you all saw him in the Scottish Cup Final he played poorly ... as did Doherty, but no-one holds that against him.
I was excited a few weeks ago, this is changing to worry!!!
gregory house
The same Griiffiths that told the world he "couldn't be bothered"? No, thanks.
WS84: I, too, am put off by Griffiths's juvenile antics but the point I am making is that, although he has undoubted ability, he has hardly had a chance to demonstrate it at WW.
A thought: what if MM were still manager? I am not saying he should still be manager, but if he still were, would there have been this 'mass exodus' ,seeing that most of the want-aways were brought in by Mick? Would a sense of appreciation, if not loyalty, on the part of the players have prevented it, or made it less likely at least? Is Stale's favouring a more compact game at the expense of wing play (so the reports, at any rate) a factor in the cases of MK, MJ and AH? Everyone's views appreciated.
I'd be looking at Agents rather than other issues. Let's be honest...where is an agents best interests? With the player or with him/herself? I suspect the latter. SS is in the middle of a difficult position and will need time to sort it out. I do think that it's time to sell rather than continue to play hardball. The longer this goes on the more unstable the situation gets. Get rid of them and get some new lads in so they can have a settled side before we get too far into the season.
I hear we have turned down another offer from Sunderland for SF, just take the bloody money and get rid!!
gregory house
And now Nenad is on the transfer list and Ohara could miss half a season.....Has it ever been like this before?
gregory house
Yes...prior to MM turning up we didn't have a team. We may have to rebuild but I remember many fans last year saying we needed a clean out and. Fresh start. Careful what ya wish for!!! It may take time but I'm sure SS will sort it out.
Like these titles are beneficial. No it is not a good situation, but that is just ripping a line from the Express & Star same as my domino comment was nicked as well. I could set up a site spilling the same bull***** as the E&S but I don' think this site was geared to entertain morons who have already ready the script. I thought we rote our own from a fans perspective. For the fans, from the Express & Star.
New York City Wolf
Should you all be posting on this site,how did you all manage it?

I agree with New York City Wolf, the express and star always spreads the bull***** and fans soak it up, as far as i can see stale has got some good players in,in the places we new would have to be filled, players are not loyal anymore they are complete morons who are vastly over paid in any division, how many of you would turn down even 5 grand a week, thats 20 thousand a month, 240.000 a year even a ten year life span gives you 2.4 million how many earn that so i say sell whoever wants to go a spend the money wisely and for petes sake do not listen to paper talk all we are losing is three players who helped us get relegated, i often commented to my brother last season that our best players were on the bench and how many times did those players come of the bench and made us a better team, we have a good squad which has been added to by stale and the kids who we have looked forward to seeing will have there chance, look to to the players who want to stay and support them and when the morons who wish to leave play against us make there lives a misery unlike when keano came and helped us go down, remember his first game for Coventry when he kissed his badge i do and yet our fans applauded him he wanted to leave as well show them no loyalty as they have shown us none
