Wolves enter September in fine shape

12 points from 5 games represents an excellent record for the first phase of the season leading up to the first international break. And they have done so from a difficult fixture list that included the three teams relegated from last season's Premier League plus a decent Blackburn team.

That start has been achieved with largely the team that Kenny Jackett built to romp League One last season plus the impressive Van La Parra. The signings of Saville and Rowe should also give a depth to the squad and add quality and all in all it means Wolves are now being talked of as real contenders for a second successive promotion.

The club have also made good progress in offloading the players that weren't allocated squad numbers for the season. Kevin Doyle's loan to Crystal Palace means him and Stephen Ward have secured good moves to the Premier League, and Tongo Doumbia also has a good move to Toulouse. Anthony Forde has gone to Walsall while Jamie O'Hara had his contract terminated. Georg Magreitter remains on the books as does Kevin Foley and the injury prone Razak Boukari. While it was disappointing that the rumours of Roger Johnson getting fixed up seem to have been unfounded.

What Wolves are left withis a good depth to the squad in midfield but they do look light on cover and competition in defence and up front. Injuries to Danny Batth or Nouha Dicko would be the ones that could affect results if that happened. But there are strong rumours that a Premier League striker is lined up to arrive on loan when that window opens in a week.

But at the moment it all looks very positive for Wolves as they take a weekend off before the trip to the seaside at Blackpool on September 13th.
