Things about to click into place for Wolves

Despite interest from Chelsea and Man City, Wolves have managed to keep hold of one promising youngster, whilst on the pitch Ikeme strongly believes things will gel soon.

All the news of late appears to have been a bit negative.

A run of five points from five games has seen us slump from third in the Championship table to eighth.

Lost leads and negative tactics have been the main talking points. As our run of four successive wins becomes a distant memory.

But we're only in the second day of November, just over a quarter of the way through the season, with a much changed team after a summer of shuffling the pack following relegation from the Premier League.

We haven't reached our potential and yet are only four points behind the automatic promotion places.

"We have just had a couple of games where we have given away leads, But I don`t think that we are that far off from really clicking.' Carl Ikeme told the Birmingham Mail.

He added: "Obviously we`ve had a few disappointments recently - the goal we gave away against Bolton in the last minute and then not beating Charlton.

"And I can understand everyone`s frustrations, really I can. It is grating for us players as well.

"But I am genuinely confident that this team is close to gelling."

But while the majority of us are of course mainly focussed on the present, the future for Wolves is also important and there was good news on that front as well with Wolves teenagers Zeli Ismail and Jonathan Flatt signing new contracts.

Both Flatt and Ismail have signed new two-and-a-half year deals to stay at Molineux.

The news, especially when discussing Ismail considering the recent links with Chelsea and Manchester City are great news.

'We are talking to several of our younger players at the current time and are delighted to have reached agreement with Zeli and Jonathan.' Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey told the media.

'It is the next stage along each of their respective developments, but it is just the next stage and they both know they need - and indeed want - to continue improving.

There's been much debate recently about playing our youngsters too ... if ***head Moxey is refusing to inject the monies from Fletch and Jarvis, thus allowing us to buy some decent players, then why not play our youngsters ...

That (Burnley) my friends was an absolute abortion. Take Sako and Ikeme out the squad and you have a squad primed for relegation. Johnson back to his old self. Disgusting. SEB';s lost his way... saw dilberts tweeting that we need to start siggy from the begginning... oh dear of that's the source of our goal-scoring salvation, heaven help us ... I will point out again that Leigh Griffiths scored his 5th in 4 games up north ...

The fact your pointing out Leigh Griffiths makes me laugh at all you say here really to be honest , He is worse than Diouf to have around a football club so they can have him for nothing as far as I'm concerned , Scottish prem with the exception of Celtic is league one sides and we have a kid coming back in January who is ripping it up in Jake Cassidy , I hope he gets a chance , Kevin Foley was awful today , at fault for both goals ( why wasn't he on the post yet he was on previous corners ? ) and he is our Mr.Consistant so the fact He had a shocker tells you all you need to know about the performance , Admant all Wolves fans know we are goal shy but will you please include Doyle if your going to have a pop at strikers , Blake has double his tally , Sigurdarson is new to he league , already played 5 months of football before he came and your slaughtering him 2 minutes after He's got off the plane , yet 6.5m Doyle with 5 in 55 games YET AGAIN gets no mention , oh and you should know RJ was Wolves best defender today with block after block , Henry n Doumbia looked leggy to me and Pennant looks like He's drinking again , they just need to forget the game and put it right Tuesday , And can you for the love of god tell me who Moxey refused to buy and what amount he refused to put ino the club since MM's release ? , seems as we cant buy anyone until January but happily pays 30k a week to Stoke for Pennant ! P.S tell me another C'ship club that has spent 11m in the summer ??? ( yes we got it in but most wouldn't have spent any )

SA79: I've also championed the cause of Griffiths, based not only on his goal scoring record but also on the rave reviews he gets whenever I read the sports pages of newspapers at my daughter's flat in Glasgow. Of course, the Scottish PL is not is as good as our PL but Celtic are only keeping his team, Hibs, off top spot on goal difference (though, admittedly Hibs have played an extra match). And Celtic almost drew with Barca not so long ago. Griffiths's performances surely rate as highly as those of Cassidy in our First Division ... and you want to give him a chance. So do I, but I think it would make sense, given the lack of goals that our current front two are scoring, to give Griffiths an opportunity to prove his worth as well. His temperament is famously suspect but, reading the Scottish papers, it appears as though he has matured and is better able to channel his aggression in a more positive way on the pitch. And, goodness knows, we could do with a lot more bite from our strikers. Even if he did not come up to scratch - and he can hardly be worse than the two players currently leading the line - I would not give him away. Hibs clearly think a lot of him and would pay us a tidy sum to sign him up. As their manager has just remarked, we must have **** hot strikers to allow Griffiths to leave the club. But, as we haven't, we should give him a go. Just think about it: two in-form WW strikers scoring for fun in our shirts! And, if not, what about putting Sako up front?

SY79 I have to say your arrogance has the exact same affect on me...yet in the spirit of debate I shall respond ... Hibs now top, Leigh Griffiths a driving force behind that and they hope to sign him permanently. Johnson was back to his bad-tempered-giving-the-ball-away self. Why were stoke so happy to see the back mocey ? Where are they now? Take what we've earned and minus what we spent and wonder where all the money's gone. We have spent ***** all on the defence, which was/is an absolute shambles. I have mentioned in other posts, (and as SB mentions too) that BOTH Cassidy and Griffiths are lively options up front, and we should give them a look-in as SEB and yes Doyle, just seem to have run out of ideas or steam or both. Peace brother.
