In order to arrest the turmoil from the fans, the manager of Wolverhampton Wanderers, Dean Saunders has said that he elected not to spend any money during the January transfer window despite having the cash.
Wolves were expected to challenge for a promotion spot in the Championship this season, but they are just two places above the relegation zone after a bad run of form. The poor run of form led to the sacking of the manager Stale Solbakken. The club appointed Saunders as his replacement, but results are yet to improve.
The club has not managed a single victory since the 2-1 win over Blackpool back in December. This has made them sit just two places above the relegation zone after the matches this weekend. Despite this poor run of form, the club did not spend any money during the transfer window. This has led to criticism from the fans, who have blamed the owners Morgan & Moxey for the lack of investment into the club. Saunders has admitted that he did not want to bring in players because all this transfer targets were available only at an inflated price. It is thought that the Birmingham city players Curtis Davies and Marlon King were primary transfer targets for the club.
"If the Chairman feels a player can improve us and be part of a building block for next season he is prepared to spend the money, There were a couple of players but we were being quoted silly money. Birmingham didn`t want to sell any of their players to us. I felt they would have added something to what we`ve got but they didn`t want to sell. Clubs signed players at the last minute so others become available - different players will be available on Thursday," said the Wolves manager.
