Kites looks set to retire
Ten years on from the 2009 promotion, I believe despite being forced out of the club, by Moxey, he still holds a special place in Wolves fans hearts.

I think a lot of Wolves fans will still remember him leaving the club for selfish gain after it looked after him exceptionally well during his injury problems for nearly two years. Good player but not one who we would look back on with too much affection.

He was forced out, my own great grandpa was also forced out of the club when they wanted to cash in, its a business and players have to look after their own interests.

Great player, never quite lit up the Prem after that injury robbed him of half a yard. Remember watching his debut at Loftus Road, was in a corner and couldn't work out why we were having such joy down their left, second half up close I realised we had a real talent. He was our talisman for that promotion campaign, provided that moment of inspiration so many times, work rate and heart typified that McCarthy team.

Another one from the 2009 team retires..Karl Henry

A scape goat for many but another player who gave his all for us.

Watch the "The Old Gold Club" to get a truer view of events

Why is his view "truer" exactly? Let's be honest, the whole warts and all truth of a football club will never be publicly aired - least of all on the club's own social media platforms. Any manager, for example, dismissed by Wolves will have signed a confidentiality agreement to get their full payoff.

Both McCarthy and Henry speak for over an hour.
Both left Wolves via the back door, both plus Kightly, did their best at Wolves
Like everything in life you have to take what they say as the truth

Henry wasn't a scapegoat he was a player that some fans felt wasn't very good but had his rabid fanclub defending him at every opportunity, a bit like Traore now, and he didn't give it his all in his final season here, along with a number of other players who took us in to the third tier. He won't go down as one of my favourites

I liked Karl when he first came. But he eventually became a parody of himself. Making him captain gave him a view of himself far above his station. He was an average footballer with poor discipline, and the fact that MM saw him as captain material sums up his tenure as manager as well. I couldn't wait to see the back of him in the end.
The bloke's was and remains a bell end in my book.

Of course, sharing sweet nothings in the wee small hours too.
