Jelle Van Damme needs to man up.
We signed him to plug the troublesome left-back slot and it has been a bit of a mystery to us fans as to why his appearances so far have all been on the wing.
We found out against Chelsea – he was torn apart repeatedly by Bosingwa. Thank goodness Stephen Ward was up to the task.
I keep hearing how he’s homesick, how he misses his previous club and how his wife is heavily pregnant back in Belgium.
He wants out and I would be happy to hold the door open for him, but only if the deal was good for Wolves.

My finger is hovering over the panic button.
West Ham at home is the type of game you must win if you want to stay in the Premier League.
It was a soft penalty – the latest in a string of bad decisions against us – but it was evened out by one that went in our favour.
The disallowed Piquionne goal meant we could have no complaints with the 1-1 draw.
I continue to be a defender of Mick McCarthy against those that have already started freaking out about our form.
But I’m not blind to some of his tactics which I think have started to become a little confused.

Karl Henry has been pilloried in the national media for the last few weeks and we Wolves fans have all had a laugh about it. If you want a flavour of the banter, type #karlyhenrysfault in to Twitter and you will see the skipper being blamed for everything from a supporter's porridge going cold to the extinction of the dinosaurs.

He has been great for Wolves but at Wigan, he lost the plot. The 2-0 defeat in a game we really needed to win really was his fault. The awful challenge that resulted in his red card just 11 minutes in to the match was totally irresponsible and makes me think it’s time he handed over the captaincy.
