    Here is a simple question....

    Who is the most attractive proposition for Players.

    We are top of the Championship, and looking likely to be in the Premiership next season.

    We're Bottom Again For Christmas, looking more likely to be relegated, no goals, no defence, $$$$ manager, awful fans.

    So if us and them were in a chase for a player, who is the better option.

    A much easier question to answer next May.

    Six Months playing well in the premiership is going to increase a players reputation even if the albion get relegated and they can then ask for a transfer in the summer

    It would depend on the player. If it was an up and coming lower league player then i think he would pick Wolves but if it was someone like Lita then he would go for the premier league club n bigger wages every time.

    Also if it was a loan player they would too choose the premership over us.

    WBA everytime given the current situation.
    They could come here and be replaced by a player using steve's millions if we go up, or they could go straight into the prem for high profile exposure.

    most people would rather take the money and play in the prem... but those type of players wouldnt get a look in under MM's reign...

    (unless they were irish and ex-sunderland)

    You sure he's still got them? Even if he has he is highly likely to keep a tighter grip on them than before this financial crisis.

    But I would agree with you, take the salary now before the axe falls

    Interesting comments.

    So by this logic, if WBA came in with a January bid of (for arguments sake) £5m for Kightly, which our club accepted, it would be seen as a good move for him personally?
     
  10. Discounting the proposition of a move to a club looking like being a Premiership team is a silly idea, even if it IS Wolves ;)

    However, i imagine it mostly comes down to the specific individual. Like others have said.

    If we were 20 points clear at the top and we looked 'certain' of promotion and Albion were 20 points adrift at the bottom of the prem, it would be a different story.

    I would suggest that with alot of our players, they are already well on the radar of Premiership clubs and so would not necessarily go to a club looking at relegation after 4 or 5 months just to gain some exposure. They would be better off waiting until the summer. If it was someone like a Keith Andrews - where this is your only real opportunity to ever make it in the top flight - I think you'd probably make the move. I guess it comes down to what is best for your career long term.

    I'm not so sure Del. I don't believe Albion's wage cap is considerably higher than ours and money aside, as anyone whose played football will vouch, its not much fun playing in a losing team at the bottom of the league.

    With Wolves you have the prospect of playing in a winning side that score a lot of goals, with the alure of promotion, if the form continues.
