    It's in the Mirror that we may make a bid in Jan. He is out of contract in the summer having signed a 3.5 year contract in Jan 2006.

    Mick has tried to sign him in the past and he could be a useful addition for the run in.

    Not sure I would call him premier class, but I have not seen him for a while.

    What are everyones views on this one?

    Funny this should come up. I was talking to Leicester supporting colleague this morning and he was fearful of losing Fryatt in the Jan window. He said he is doing well this season and looks like he could perform at a higher level (he was thinking lower Prem teams) but he did say "... mind, it's taken him long enough to show it."

    Which kind of says it all for me. He's doing well now but has been spectacularly inconsistent for a long time.

    Wasn't there a Thread dug up from last season doing the rounds over the weekend? I'm sure my mate SmokeyGB added to it as Matty's a relative of some sort.

    Sorry Dewsbury I have not seen that one, I did have a look around before I posted.

    No need to apologise pal, it's not as if we haven't had numerous Threads on similar subjects before.

    Might offer us something different if he did sign but until he does it's all conjecture. Like I said SmokeyGB has family connections so I'm slightly inclined to thing there might be some truth in it. Doesn't mean it's definitely happening though. May just be Agent spin to get a better deal.

    Seven viewers at the moment would suggest otherwise, Dewsbury.

    Gotcha GH!

    There's been some daft rumour about Matty Fryatt's mum saying something about him coming to Wolves circulating around Leicester fans for a bit. They got especially panicky about this when they signed Mark Davies on loan- thinking perhaps it was Wolves scratching their back before they scratch ours...

    We could certainly do with another out-and-out goalscoring striker for the run-in, although I'm sceptical as to his Premier class.

    11 goals in 95 games for Leicester at this level probably means that you should be sceptical about his Championship class.

    Worth a gamble IMO for what we'd have to pay for him.. had his injury problems at Leicester and had a reasonable stint at Walsall beforehand. Personally think we should have took the gamble when he left Walsall ( same goes for Dann and Fox)

    Certainly fits into our current criteria for signing players and would fit in nicely IMO

    I wouldn't go for him personally. As I said, his record for Leicester is pretty shocking, even allowing for injuries and them being a pretty poor side. I really don't think he's as good as Vokes.

    Why bother? Certainly could not step up to Premiership and has found his level in his current division. Barely adequate at Championship level. We need a lot better.

    Most of his goals in the Championship came in a single good run of form when he first signed for Leicester in Jan 06 - 6 goals in fact.

    3 goals in 06/07
    2 goals in 07/08

    1 goal between Sep 07 and May 08 = Shocking. He has a worse record than Eastwood in this division.

    I'd rather we got a striker in January than waited until the summer, but if this was all that was available, what's the point?

    This ignore list thing's really got to you, hasn't it, mate?

    I wonder if there's a psychiatrical definition, such as "BB Paranoia", where the patient is convinced he is participating in a conversation and no one realizes he's there?

    Simply not good enough in my opinion. I don't believe he is as good as anything we've got. If we get him I'd love to be proved wrong but if we are still leading by a considerable amount at Xmas we should really be looking for better options. Maybe tempt a young Arsenal star by using Manciennne's success as an example to them!

    Do you know what really happend to him over the last 2 years at the Foxes ?
    I dont think you do.....
    How many games did Ward score on the wing last year ? There you will start finding some sort of answers.....
    Also Due to a certain manager coming in....He made him train with the U18 for over ½ a season and not go near a reserve team or the 1st time...
    Do you think he would be rather $$$$$$ off at the club....
    Only now this season are they playing him in the correct position and reaping the benifits....
    But on the other side of the coin........

    At best a aquad member along the lines of Elliot / Vokes / Keogh saga i think.

    19.66% chance of this being true. The red propaganda machine is as reliable a source as scrawl on a bog door at frankley services.

    I really don't fancy him at top of the Championship (I liked writing that!) level. Can look clumsy in front of goal, in a sort of slow and hesitant way.

    We do not need this type of player if we have any ambition.

    He is no where near the quality of Vokes, Keogh, SEB, Iwuelmo.

    5th Choice at best

    Being from Walsall I have seen him play for the Saddlers on a few occasions and speaking to my Walsall mates they always said he had a bit of an attitude problem. In my opinion he is not worth a go as he is a league 1 striker. He is just not good enough for anything higher.

    Considering he is getting similar sort of comments on here to when we signed Iwelumo, I reckon we should sign him like a shot!

    Yep, if we sign him, judge him in a wolves shirt not on any "previous"!

    Just got a Hat-trick, second successive game. Worth a punt then or still "found his level"

    He could play in the chamiponship, but he would be 5th choice striker here.
    Do we need a 5th choice striker

    Dew's mate

    You'll never change peoples minds...
    How many people thought when we signed Big Chris...." joy we have a journeyman here who not a star " ???

    Matty will score goals wherever he goes , but is a confidence player....

    Fourth choice striker before your mate Keogh.

    Smokey get in the car and get yourself over to the pub.
