Steve Bull: Wolves will back Kenny Jackett

Legend Steve Bull today re-assured Wolves fans owner Steve Morgan will back boss Kenny Jackett with cash – as striker Patrick Bamford decides his future.

Eight days before the transfer window shuts for permanent signings, Wolves have so far only got two free transfers to show for their summer-long trawl for additions in Tommy Rowe and Rajiv Van La Parra.

With a young striker seen as a priority, Wolves retain an interest in Chelsea’s Bamford, who has stalled on a season-long loan to Middlesbrough with Wolves and other Championship clubs interested.

Wolves failed with a bid of around £1.25m to tempt Leicester into selling Chris Wood.

But club-record scorer and vice-president Bully, who is in regular contact with the Wolves owner and chairman, believes Jackett will provide funds for the right players.

“Steve Morgan is right behind Kenny Jackett and I think he will back him in the transfer market,” said the former England international.

“I can see it as a supporter and as a vice-president and we’re not far away, but maybe he just needs one or two experienced players.”

Bull believes Jackett has won Morgan’s trust with the reliability of his signings and the balance of his squad.

“New faces can improve the squad because they make people work harder for their shirts,” he said. “But I think he can take 11 players out he’s got another 11 of equal strength to put in with what’s on the bench and the squad.”

And Bully has been especially impressed with Van La Parra.

“Van La Parra has proved a superb signing and the way he’s running at people, I can’t see a defender who can live with him,” he said.

There's not too much contention in what Steve Bull is saying in this article. I daresay most supporters already have noted a marked change in the approach by senior management over the last 18 months or so. The club as whole seem to be swimming in the same direction.

Perhaps the most interesting part of the article relates to Patrick Bamford. Sounds like he's hedging his bets with regard to which club to go to. Maybe a win today might just be the deciding factor in choosing Wolves. He was the one player I've been hoping we could get on loan all summer.

Off the mark there Steve,take out 11 and replace with an equally good 11? I doubt we could take out 4-5 without suffering greatly

As for backing with young strikers,i read today we may put in an offer for Danny Graham,29! We must be starting to panic lol

Chillo Wolf

Not sure too many teams at this level could take out 11 players and not suffer greatly

Not too much to worry about

youngand hungry

I will be in the Stile about 1 if anybody fancy`s a pint , you will know who I am , Phil on back of shirt .


I hope he does back jacket as he had been so good in the transfer market since arriving I'm not sure about bamford as I haven't seen much of him but can't wait to see a new striker brought in. In jacket we trust! UTW



Who's panicking? If the rumour about Danny Graham is true, I see that as a positive rather than a negative. OK. he's 29. He did well at Swansea and didn't our very own KJ start the Swansea revolution up the leagues, playing pretty decent football? At 29 Graham brings experience. OK, he's no spring chicken but it's horses for courses at the moment and if can find 15-20 goals for us this season it's money well spent.

No problems with bringing in a little experience,you always need a few old heads around,after all you win nothing with kids as the old saying goes lol

Just pointing out the fact all the statements coming out from KJ so far have intimated a young and hungry approach,if this story has any truth, sort of flies in the face of that policy

Graham has been, and maybe still is, a decent striker,but will he fit in with our current style of play?

I dont recall him having blistering pace,so would we change our style to suit a more old fashioned center forward?

KJ cant be faulted on his buys so far,except maybe one. so lets wait and see


I personally think graham would be a good addition although he may not have pace I think it's good to have different options and I'm sure he has plenty to offer

I don't think that Bamford or Graham would improve us - unless Kenny plays two up-front, in which case either would be better than Clarke. I saw Bamford play several games for Derby last season and was not impressed. He's a bit of a poser and does not put in a shift. We should have made sure of Wood. I notice that Agard has left Rotherham (for Bristol City!) - he might have been the man.
