After a season of such promise ended in disappointment Wolves sacked Kenny Jackett and I have decided to become their new manager. The main reason for why I have chosen Wolves is that they are a sleeping giant due to the fact that they have three First Division titles and four FA Cups to their name. I will be using the Lfc marshall update so I can use the clubs up to date squad and so that the likes of Newcastle and Burton will be joining me in the championship.
Clubs Current Situation:
Starting transfer budget - £13.5 million
Starting wage budget - £282,896 p/w
Division - Sky Bet Championship
Board Expectations - Win Promotion, Reach the Fifth Round in the FA Cup and Reach the Fourth Round in the Capital One Cup
Founded - 1877
Stadium - Molineux, 30,852 all seater
Goals for the save:
- Develop young, homegrown players into the first team
- Assert Domestic Dominance
- Win the Champions League
- Achieve promotion to the English Premier Division either automatically or via the play-offs
- Be competitive in cup competitions
The Wolves squad is of a decent quality and should be good enough for a promotion challenge but there are a few areas which I need to improve. For example there is no recognised defensive midfielder and I need to bring in a third choice striker. The key players in the side are Carl Ikeme, Silvio, David Edwards and Nouha Dicko.
Within the squad their are a few bright prospects which I plan to develop and use within the first team for many seasons to come:
I have decided to deploy a 4-5-1 tactic which I have created myself. It is the first time I have used this tactic so anything could happen.
I hope you have enjoyed my first blog. I plan to provide updates every in-game month which will tell you about how I have got on in the matches, any changes behind the scene and who has been the player of the month. Any suggestions or improvements please comment.
