Liam Keen comment: Wolves need to avoid the expensive mistakes again

All football fans ever want is a team that will run themselves into the ground for the slightest of success.

In Wolverhampton, people work hard for their money and football is a weekly release from normality, and the least that Wolves fans deserve are players that are desperate to play for the club and show that on the field.

Wolves have always been a club where players that show that attitude create a real affinity with the supporters but in some respects, the club has moved away from that in recent years.

Plenty of big money signings of late have not worked, while some attitudes on the pitch have been lacking the vigour needed, which has resulted in Wolves making a shift in transfer policy.
