Those of you who followed this blog last season will remember that in May I identified four areas of concern that needed to be addressed before the new campaign - left back, wing, up front and adding quality.
I'm delighted to say that new men have been brought in to address those concerns.
Perhaps Mick was listening . . .
You don't have to be called Steve to sign for Wolves, but it helps . . .
Hunt, Fletcher and Mouyokolo have joined us in the summer transfer window, along with Jelle Van Damme.
Problem area: wing
Why: Kevin Foley stepped up to the plate when Kightly got injured but he is a defender. We need someone that can rampage forward and get some goals. Mujangi Bia isn't established and we've sold Surman who failed to make the grade.
What I said in May: "What we need is an established Premier League performer who won’t play second fiddle to Jarvis and Kightly but compete with them to start."
Is Hunt the solution?: Six goals in 27 games for Hull and named their Player of the Year. Known for his tenacity and attitude, he'll be just the job when he gets over the ankle injury he is carrying.
Problem area: up front
Why: lowest scorers in the league last season with an over-reliance on Kevin Doyle. Ebanks-Blake might yet come good but we can't rely on that.
What I said in May: "We need another striker and one with a proven ability to net in the Premier League."
Is Fletcher the solution?: I'll admit that a few months ago I said £7 million was "way too much" for the lad. However, seeing the figures going around this summer and the quality of strikers available, I'm beginning to think I was wrong. He's only 23 and if he matches his goal tally for last season - when he proved he can do it in the top flight - he'll be a bargain.
JELLE VAN DAMME:
Problem area: left-back
Why: Stephen Ward is competent and George Elokobi improved no-end last season but the position is the weakest link in our defence.
What I said in May: "Jelle looks like he fits the bill. Six foot four, good in the air and with an impressive goal record for the Belgian club (17 in 110). If he can fit in to the team then £2.5 million would be a bargain."
Is Van Damme the solution?: His performances in pre-season suggest so. He looks strong and much more certain on the ball than the other two fighting for his place.
Problem area: adding quality
Why: We don't want to catch second seasonitis. We actually finished comfortably above the relegation zone last season but the consensus opinion is that this year will be more competitive throughout the table. Two of the clubs that have come in to the league have got good resources and strong squads so it's important that we don't rest on out laurels. We have to keep going forward and that means signing players not because we have a lack of options in the position, but because they make those options better.
What I said in May: "To progress as a club though and cement our position in the top flight, we have to bring in more quality players to compete with the best of what we have already and move on the ones that aren’t quite good enough."
Is Steven the solution?: Jody Craddock was or best player last season but it was an age-defying campaign for him. How long can he keep going at the highest level? Mouyokolo is young and has got under 20 starts to his name in the Premier League so I'm not sure if he is a ready-made replacement but he could be the long term answer.
