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

Didn't He Do Well?

What a month it's been?

As Bruce Forsyth would say, 'Good game, good game.'

In what is hoped could be a microcosm of Wolves' season, a slow start has ended with a strong finish beating the oppostion to the drop.

The club has now spent in excess of 2 million.

One of, if not THE highest spends in The Championship during the January transfer window

So has CEO Jez Moxey spent wisely?

Gabor Gyepes, Maurice Ross and Stefan Postma all had their loan deals converted to permanent deals with Gyepes being the major outlay at 400,000.

Gyepes has proved to be a more than capable signing, showing intelligence, commitment and strength.

Once fully fit, Maurice Ross has shown that he certainly has much to offer as an attacking wing back when deployed in a 3-5-2 formation.

Stefan Postma's inclusion in the side has coincided with a new found defensive strength in keeping clean sheets that points to it not being coincidental at all.

Yes, sometimes his kicking may not be of the highest calibre. But if you that's how you want to judge your ball handlers then maybe hockey is a sport better viewed.

It's too early to judge Denes Rosa, a six figure signing from Ferencvaros.

But if his countryman Gabor Gyepes is anything to go by, once he aclimatises to the English game he will surely strengthen the team.

At 1.4 million Polish goal machine Tomasz Frankowski represents the biggest investment of Glenn Hoddle's reign.

With only half an hour in the old gold and black under his belt it is too early to say he is definately a success.

But the touches he showed against Manchester United, and his creation of a chance out of virtually nothing gave a very good indication that he intends to continue where he left off in Spain.

The last addition to the Wanderers pack is Jeremie Aliadiere. A loan signing, but still one of far reaching significance.

Wolves fans will remember him well from his performance against them in the League Cup in December '03 where he tore their defence apart and helped himself to an impressive brace of goals.

So has Mr Moxey come up trumps?

Or has he left the club holding a deadman's hand, all in, facing a royal flush?

Vital Wolves opinion is he has exceeded all expectations.

But the new additions still need to perform to their full potential before plaudits can be fully bestowed.

As it stands, he has done what is asked of him.

And he has answered any questions as to what what has been occuring behind doors that are closed to the general rank and file.

If the track record of those players fans have had sight of is a taster, there is every reason to be hopeful that when the play offs come Wolves will be up there, not just contending, but in with a real shout of getting back to where they all want to be.

To quote Forsyth once again :

'I'm in charge'

You certainly are Jez, and I for one, am extremely glad.
