'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Mick Keeps Faith

Mick McCarthy has made it clear that just because he is now one of the richest Championship managers in the transfer market, it doesnt mean Wolves will be headhunting Premiership stars this summer.

Nor will he be bringing in players guaranteed to usurp the current crop who fought so hard to achieve promotion this campaign.

Instead, to msost fan's relief, he will keep faith with the youngsters who have brought the club so far in so little time, and put their interests above anybody elses.

'If there is the opportunity to buy new players we also have to be mindful that there are lads here who have brought relative success to the club this year.' he told the clubs official site.

'From where we were on July 26 it's been a wonderful year. We have to think of the players who have achieved that and everything that is done in the future will be done with those in mind.'

One key area many have highlighted in helping to bring success since McCarthy's arrival, has been the undivided dressing room now bereft of Premiership wage, former internationals, and something McCarthy will want to hold on to at all costs.

'What we want are players with the same sort of hunger that the squad has shown this year.That desire and real work ethic.'

Finding them may not be the problem. Finding them at the right price however, may.

Something McCarthy readily recognises

'It always happens that if someone has a value, and now that value goes up, it can be a problem but that's for others to sort out.

'Whether it's two-bob or two million it's the other people that deal with that side of things, myself, Taff Evans and Dave Boman (chief scout) just identify the players.' he added.

Something all three do very well.

How can you say that it's standing by the current sqaud when you let eight players go?

Lets review Matt_us. 1. Frankowski - on lone all season away from Wolves - a Hoddle man 2. Clapham - faded badly, aged. 3. Cort - Didn't play all season 4. Rosa - Didin't play all season 5. Craig Davies - On loan from Verona and gone back (a temporary fill in) 6. Johnson - hasn't hardly played since christmas after K&K arrived 7. Ricketts - ditto Johnson 8. Michael Oakes - sorry to see him go, a fine Wolves servant over the years and a good keeper still, however we have 3 fine young keepers in the wings. So, you see it's hardly the cull of the century is it?!

It's called natural wastage, hardly teh kind of offloading we did last year, as Ivybridge says. Apart from Jackie Mac who was out of ( a very highly paid) contract, we've retained everyone that played a MAJOR role last year

Matt_Us - do you not know anything about the club? Do you really think Cort had a chance? Davies was not the cheese. Johnson neither. Poor Oakes but clearly not needed... Ricketts should not have been let go - he was on my shirt.... Damn lol. Crapam... says it all. Franky - dunno - haven't seen him for so long.... however that sarga still 'puzzles' ne
