Time to sell and move on

Time to sell and move on

It's crunch time for Wolves, do we sell and cash in on Fletcher and Jarvis or do we rebuff Sunderland and West Ham United again?

The duos departure has been inevitable ever since our relegation from the Premier League was confirmed.

Both players do not want to remain at Wolverhampton Wanderers and both have clear opportunities to return to the Premier League.

The problem is, the offers on the table for Fletcher and Jarvis both fall slightly short of Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey asking price.

So what do we do? Do we hold off and keep players who no longer want to be at the club or do we sell?

Some will argue that if we don't receive an offer that matches our asking price then we should keep hold of them as selling them will be a sign of weakness, but personally I think a time comes where you draw a line and move on and now for me anyway, that time has come.

Matt Jarvis joined Wolves five years ago from Gillingham for £700,000 at 26-years-old he's virtually at his peak and if we sell for a fee just short of £10million in instalments then that's good business. Jez might have eyed a bit more, but I think he can still sit down in his office and think he's done well there.

Then there's Steven Fletcher, he joined two years ago following Burnley's relegation for a club-record £7million, now even once you factor in the sell-on clause, even if we do accept an offer of around £12-13million instead of the £15million asking price, once again that's a good profit.

It should give new Norwegian boss Ståle Solbakken more than enough of a transfer kitty to rebuild a squad in his vision and one that will get us out of the Championship.

So lets sell up and move on.

well, as it stands we look set to keep hold on to both players, who wont have any resentment against being held back.... right. Also, see forets are eyeing Hammil - now, Hammil and Gediora on the wings, there's a pairing I'd like to see at Wolves.... I hope that the next pie moxey eats gets lodged deep in his digestive tract and they have to pull it out through his arse.

Do you honestly think that Moxey picks the team Admant??? The manager tells him who he wants to stay and go and Moxey facilitates it so why does Moxey get blamed?? Jez has worked well to prevent us losing Fletch and Jarvo for pennies so I don't see where your issue is with him. I'm also sure that there are many phone calls being made behind the scenes to secure new players. Obviously, not all will be successful. I'm not Moxeys biggest fan, far from it but you can't really condemn him for sales and purchases. Those decisions are made at higher and lower levels I.e. manager goes to Jez with a name, Jez goes to Morgan, Morgan says yes or no, Moxeys deals with it.

dont quite think i said he picks the squad now did i ??? get ur calculator out Rustmonkey - tot up monies in vs monies out - there is a massive difference. we may get top dollar for our exiting players, but we spend (relatively) sweet f.a. on players coming in. where does the money go ? moxey knows.

I'm sure he does but it's not his money is it????? The money belongs to Morgan and his Directors with shares where it probably sits until needed. Why do ppl think that Moxey is in control of the purse strings??? He is a facilitator, not the owner of the Bank. If you want to level the lack of money spent, look higher up the food chain.
