McCarthy set to swoop for Ebanks-Blake?

McCarthy set to swoop for Ebanks-Blake?

As is often the way, when a manager moves on he often likes to eventually be reunited with various members of his training staff and quite often former players too.

At Molineux for example Johan Lange and Patrick Weiser have both previously worked with Wolves gaffer Ståle Solbakken during their previous times at clubs in Europe.

Sławomir Peszko joined Wolves over the summer on loan after previously working with Solbakken at Köln and there are a number of other examples at almost every club when a new manager comes in.

Former Wolves manager Mick McCarthy of course has now moved on to Championship rivals Ipswich Town and he was quickly joined at Portman Road by former Wolves assistant and manager Terry Connor.

The pair were always likely to be reunited once McCarthy got a new job and in a way it's nice to see them both back in football as they are good hard working honest chaps.

But with the pair only joining Ipswich last month they haven't had time to make any moves in transfer market, with January their first chance to make a stamp on the squad.

So who will they move for? Well according to our friends over at Vital Ipswich it will be Sylvan Ebanks-Blake.

So head over to Vital Ipswich to read their view on the proposed move.

Our striker situation is a baffling one. All of our "in form" guys are banging em in for other clubs, whilst our "proven" players are struggling. If we can get good cash for SEB, then sure, he should go, not really come to life this year, and no good at prem level - so why not. The more pressing question must surely be, who are we likely to bring in... we need some beefing up, upfront, and one if not more of our in form youngsters should be given a go too. Honestly, what do we have to lose by giving them a go ?

This (so-called) story has been invented based purely on the fact that SS has said there is no rush to extend SEB's contract.However, I said before Mick got another job (and since) that it would be interesting to see how many of the players he signed for us, he would want to re-sign for his next club. After 3 years of listening to him tell us how good they were, surely Ward and Berra, to name but two, would be of interest to him. Stale has reiterated, at every opportunity, that his plan isn't just to build a team good enough to get promoted out of this division, but to play the kind of football that gives us the best chance of competing in the PL when we get there. How very typical it would be of Mick to do the complete opposite and sign a player that was shown to be so desperately out of his depth in the Premiership. He'll fill the Ipswich squad with Championship-standard players playing hoof-ball and having no chance of ever competing with the big boys should they be given the opportunity. As a contrast between the way we were and the way we are, I think that says it all.

Of the three front runners yesterday, SEB was the designated 'striker' and he failed to take his chances. As I noted in my report he is the obvious one to give way if Cassidy reproduces for us his Transmere form. And, as I have banged on about for a long time, we should give Griffiths a chance, though it's probably too late now, especially if PL clubs are sniffing around. If only MM had given him a chance when he was keen to play for us.

I agree,sell him and give our kids a chance,when you are scoring regardless of the division it becomes the norm remember a certain Steve Bull who some said could not cut it at an higher level and yet as a third division player scored for England I think Stale is level headed and will do the right thing remember why he didnt take Frimpong why have an academy if you do not use it
