So who did Wolves go for?

Transfer deadline day proved pretty fruitless for Dean Saunders and Wolves.

Deadline day promised to be a busy day for Wolverhampton Wanderers.

New gaffer Dean Saunders had categorically stated that while he believed restructuring the team would take several years, he also made it clear that he would be aiming to do business in this transfer window, moving players on and moving players in to Molineux to improve the quality of the squad.

Wolves defenders Ronald Zubar and Steven Mouyokolo were both shown the door the day before deadline day approached, with Richard Stearman also leaving on loan and reports suggested that the likes of Birmingham City players Marlon King and Curtis Davies could be targets ahead of the window closing, with a number of other players linked throughout the media.

But as Sky Sports News worked themselves up into a frenzy, it was all quiet on the Wolves front in terms of players coming in.

Our only movement? The signing of 18-year-old midfielder Lee Evans from Newport County. Literally no joke.

Wolves of course did make other moves in the transfer market, it's just that none of them came off, with the day more of a pantomime rather than a time to get any real business done, at the right price anyway.

27-year-old Blackpool defender Alex Baptiste was thought to be a 1million target despite being out-of-contract at Blackpool at the end of the season, but nothing really materialised there. Blackburn and Leicester were also interested in the versatile defender but he ended up staying with Blackpool.

We were also linked with QPR forward DJ Campbell, who was also linked with Hull City and Blackburn Rovers, but just like Baptiste he ended up staying put.

Anyone would think that we were in this crisis because we'd pulled a Pompey on ourselves ... yet it's far simpler than that... Morgan's kept our money wrapped up nice and warm in his bank account, and the resultant underspend has lead the purchase of cheap rubbish and ultimately to relegation. None of this is rocket science, club spend and position in the league tables are inextricably linked. Only us and Arsenal made a profit last year, so in a business sense we finished second in England... in reality we got relegated with a bunch of ageing donkeys and are now staring relegation in the face again. We are not a football cub, we are a division of Morgan industries, and your hard earned pennies are making him very very wealthy.

It's hard to disagree with that assessment, AdMant.

The profits made go in-to a holding company based off-shore. The company is a name only (a bank account) with no premises and no employees. From there the monies can be transfered to anywhere Morgan desires.
WonderingWolf
or maybe he keeps it under his bed... at the end of the day it's not where it rightfully should be ... at Our Beloved Wolves. I have to believe there is justice, and I have to believe that he will get his come-uppance for the damage he is doing.
AdMant
There is less and less doubt that the club is being used as a cash cow to subsidise Morgan's business interests. The FA's so-called checks only trace the monies to the holding company. As long as it's registered and legally above board,no checks are made to ensure that club's aren't being bled dry. The FA are as complcit as can be. The true story of Portsmouth wasn't simply about inflated salaries to players and staff that couldn't be maintained, it was to do with the club's finances disappearing off-shore, never to be seen again. It's called money laundering.

A lot of sense, AdMant. I noticed the sponsors' name at the back of the Wolves shirts. Would have made better sense were it What team ?
lovesW
Given a choice between the word 'house' and the word 'team', I think Morgan would choose the former every time.
WonderingWolf
what team, lol
Patrickdoran
About the word house, indeed, WF; the Club is stable enough financially, even strong, and one of the very few that can brag about it, so no need of the question mark there. These are the sponsors, nothing we can change about it, but since I get very uncomfortable with things that do not quite fit, I do change it mentally for myself in two ways simultaneously, replacing that question mark with an exclamation mark and replacing the word house with the work team, retaining the question mark. There is more to it: it has become impossible to enjoy the play on the field, so I enjoy the play on words instead. What else to do? Look forward to the derby with Walsall?
lovesW
Pardon me, WonderingWolf. I meant to address you as WW, but somehow the last letter stuck. No offence meant.
lovesW
Recent developments seem to suggest Morgan has no soluble cash and ALL monies generated from the club are supplementing his cash flow problems ... Worried yet ?
