Vital Wolves have received a bit of a mixed reaction to the loan signing of Belgium international Geoffrey Mujangi Bia.
Just as we were reporting that we appear to be struggling to bring new faces to Molineux, up steps 20-year-old Charleroi midfielder Mujangi.
If international clearance comes through in time, he could be set to make his debut against Crystal Palace in the FA Cup tomorrow.
McCarthy was pleased to have got his man telling the BBC : ‘He is a player we have been tracking for a while and will add creativity and firepower,’
‘He can play on the right or the left, as well as centrally.’
But while McCarthy was pleased, the news was received with a mixed reaction on Vital Wolves.

It has just been announced that we have signed a Belgian international on loan. Personally I have never heard of him and that seems to be the kind of player Wolves chase these days – players no one has heard of – because established players just don’t see Wolves as a club where they can ply their trade! The big question that I and many other Wolves fans would like to like to know is – Why can’t Wolves attract ‘top’ players to the club? Every other team seems to do it, Bolton, Hull, Wigan and now Birmingham… but Wolves? Every transfer window Wolves identify who they want but the fans have never heard of the players who actually come in. Who had actually heard of Milijas, Zubar etc? You have to go back a long time to when Wolves were in a position to attract ‘top’ players to the club and that was when John Barnwell was manager and all we have signed since those days have been journeymen, other teams cast-offs, injury-prone or one final payday players, that is until McCarthy was installed and now the emphasis has changed to youth. Unfortunately the youth policy was not introduced early enough as we gained promotion to the Premier League sooner than expected where experience is required but we have very little of that hence we are struggling to stay up. Hopefully McCarthy & co will put matters right before February 1st otherwise the season’s end is going to be a nailbiter!

Whilst Wigan, Stoke, Birmingham, POrtsmouth, West Ham, heck, the ENTIRE FOOTBALLING WORLD know that you need to splash a bit to bring in quality (that is why they cost a bit – cos they are good) Wolves instead are only interested in accumulating wealth for the fat suits in the boardroom… WE ARE GOING NOWHERE WITH THESE GLUTTONS IN CHARGE.
And JamoDaWolf added: Having seen Geoffrey Mujangi Bia play a few times, I’d say that Sylvan is def going to be seeing him make those totally unselfish run’s in front of and around him – If this does start to happen, then it’s game on for Sylvan! Also Mujangi Bia is a bit of a beast – Would compete with both Kightley and Jarvis…… This IS an exciting move! Well done Mick!
