The Flea Is Back – with a Van!

Yes. The annoying little flea is back to bring you up to scratch, so to speak, 😆 about everything concerning Wolves – probably the best football club in the world.

I’m sorry about my absence for a couple of weeks, but the flea needed a rest to be able to jump to the task for another season. And honestly – not much has happened during these weeks just a lot of empty rumours. But – as always – June brings news to Wolves.

After a very successful season in the Premier League Wolves are now trying to strengthen the team for next season to get comfortable in the best league in the world. The first new signing was announced today; a man with the forceful name of Jelle Van Damme. A Belgian defender that has played for Ajax, Southampton and Anderlecht prior to signing for Wolves for about £2.5 million according to media sources.

I believe that is a bargain for a defender that has played for Anderlecht in the Europa League and the Champions League and for Southampton in the Premier League. He has also 29 cups for his country.

How will Mick McCarthy use Van, then? Well. He has played in every defending position during his career so it’s hard to say, really. Most people probably believes that he will grab the left back position, but I’m not so sure. He can probably rival both Craddock and Berra for their centre-back positions aswell.

We will have to wait and see. If Elokobi evolves as much for next season as the one we just witnessed I doubt that anyone can rival him at his left back spot. I’ll bet Berra, The Van and Elokobi could all be comfortable playing as cover for the back four aswell. Interesting options!

  1. He looks like a good signing and I look forward to seeing him perform in the prem for us.

  2. Paddy!
    I missed you!
    Good signing, and go Wolves!

  3. We’re well covered in defense now. Both Van Damme and Zubar can play in a central position. In the future I really think Zubar is an interesting alternative to Craddock, handing Foley the right back position. Seems like N’daw and Fletcher are the ones who arrives next. Solid signings in all areas. I want us to sign another striker and winger – then I’m satisfied and ready for a new season.

  4. If he really has “played in every defending position during his career” then no doubt McCarthy will stick him upfront alongside Doyle or in midfield shadowing Henry.
    No matter how good this guy actually is for a team that regularly plays with 7 defenders outfield the last thing I think we need is another one.

  5. Jelle Van Damme is not only an ugly guy, he is a useless, over-rated soccer player.

    • And we will smash you to pieces on the 18th of December and 7th of May, Baggie girl.
