Oh Matt Mills, oh Richard Dunne, oh Roger Johnson too.
You’ll cost us so much money I wrote this blog for you, wrote this blog for you.
In an ode to a band I used to feel a bit guilty for liking, I’d like to know who you’d love to see in a Wolves shirt from the bottom of your pencil case.
Thomas would be turning in his hammock if he read a tenuous link to Beautiful South, but with absolutely nothing happening right now I thought it would be interesting to pose the following question:
If Wolves were to sign only one more player from now until the start of the season, who would you like it to be from the names we have been linked with (of which there have been many)
If we whittled it down to Bertram, Konchesky, Mills, Dunne, Johnson, Jonny Evans and Sebastien Bassong, which one would you like to have in the team at Ewood Park for the first game of the season?
Come to think of it, who would you like to see leave as well? While that elusive marquee defensive signing is consuming all of our thoughts, I’m as concerned about the stodgy air of mediocrity around the reserve team that has long been in need of shifting.
With the 25 man squad rule gaining added significance on a seemingly weekly basis, it seems equally vital to shift some deadwood if we are serious about progressing and evolving.
Personally, Berra, Keogh, Halford, Maierhofer and Vokes can now leave the club, while one of David Edwards and Nenad Milijas could follow closely behind if – for whatever reasons – they resume bit-part roles from August.
Then there is the issue of the youngsters and the best way to aid their development and finally immerse them into the first team environment. How we handle Zele Ismail will be particularly interesting, as well as the stance on Batth, Malone, Winnall, David Davis and Mendez-Laing. More loans I’d imagine.
Maybe save that subject for another time as I get back to the question in hand. One player, one more signing, who would you like it to be (from those currently being linked).
