Subject: Matt Doherty
Date Posted: 19 Aug 2010 at 8:28am

Wolves have recruited another promising youngster in the shape of Irish defender Matt Doherty.

Highly-rated Welsh striker Jake Cassidy arrived on Tuesday and a deal has now been agreed to bring in fellow teenager Doherty.

The 18-year-old caught http://topics.skysports.com/Mick+McCarthy/?section=football - Mick McCarthy's eye whilst playing for Bohemians in pre-season against both Wolves and http://topics.skysports.com/Aston+Villa/?section=football - Aston Villa.

He follows in the footsteps of http://topics.skysports.com/Stephen+Ward/?section=football - Stephen Ward, who made the move to Molineux from the http://topics.skysports.com/dublin/?section=football - Dublin club in 2007.

Chief Executive Jez Moxey is pleased with the capture of Doherty, telling the Express & Star: "Matt's performance was noted by Mick and the coaching team in our friendly against Bohemians at the start of pre-season.

"We followed up the interest and after he impressed again in training it was decided to pursue a deal.

"From the time we signed Stephen Ward we have always enjoyed a good relationship with Bohemians and have twice played them in friendly matches.

"Mick has also been very successful with the Irish players he has brought in, and Matt is another young and bright talent with plenty of potential."

Opportunity

Reports suggest the transfer fee is in the region of 75,000, with Bohemians set to receive around 40,000.

Smaller Irish clubs Belvedere and Home Farm are also set to get a cut after helping Doherty develop before his recent move to Bohemians.

Bohs boss http://topics.skysports.com/Pat+Fenlon/?section=football - Pat Fenlon said: "We have spoken to his schoolboy clubs here in Dublin and they are happy with what we are doing.

"This is a great opportunity for Matt, sometimes it's not just about making money - and I know we need the money - but we're not standing in his way. He's a very good young player who has a real chance.

"I know Mick McCarthy is very taken with him, so we wish him the best of luck."

Had another very good game today for wolves in their 3-2 defeat to northampton. He was a bit like coleman as he was constantly attacking down the line and was unlucky not to get a goal or two.  Also looks very composed defending as well.  Mcalinden was also very good and hopefully will have worked himself into wolves starting 11.  Mccarey was very poor and could of done better with 2 of the 3 goals and also was caught out on a few other occasions and was lucky to get away with it

Good to hear young Doherty doing well. We could do with more options at full-back.

I said it when the squad was picked that doherty could have been brought in but its an absolute shame that no young players were brought into the end of season squad. Ridiculous. Instead we had Stepen Kelly who hasnt started for club since January 1st and wasnt in the Reading squad 1st 2 games of the season - unsure if thats due to injury but regardless he shouldnt be getting a look in. He proved why in the Portugal match.

So now O Neill is in a situation where he may well have to pick both Kelly and Ward in his Georgia squad as full back cover or starter, in the latter's case, without either having any games behind them. God forbid that Coleman gets injured. Poor management.

Kelly is injured, and tbf Doherty was in and out of a Wolves team in L1 last year, so I wouldn't exactly say he was an obvious choice for a call up.

Ya aware of that. But he's a manager on a 6 figure sum. You don't need to be on that to do the calculations that Kelly will be 31 when this campaign starts, past it and likely to plummet the divisions during the campaign. 

Doherty is no Steve Finnan waiting in the wings but we don't have alternatives. We will have to rely on fringe players through this campaign at some point. And Kelly has been tested, has the experience and we know what he can do. No need for him in that squad on the back of a shocking season.

Who would you have liked to have seen at RB in America? Kelly?

He pulled out of this squad.... Again. Agree with HB on this.

HB - When I say he's past it - like with Doyle - his best days are well behind him. His last 2 seasons have been very poor, to say the least. Arguably the best season of his career was 2011-12. He's failed to live up to that since.

Sorry thought you were talking about Towell .

Your right calling up Lenihan is bizarre and just wrong. I'm not sure O'Neill has seen him play yet either.

Doherty is doing well. Holding down a place in a good championship team. He has to be better than some of the extended squad named for the two games coming up. Again I have to say why not play a B international in the week of Euro games.We are not going to use 35 players in two games lets get as many players as possible playing and committed to the cause.

bump

Just looking at Wolves's end of season awards last year and he was voted their best player by the fans/best player among the other players and scored the best goal.

Has apparently done well at left back but is a natural right back and has played in all defensive positions.

Anyone seen much if any of him?

Yeah, he seems to have developed an awful lot. When I first saw him in the championship I wouldn't have had him near the Irish set-up, being played on the wrong side seems to have actually aided his development.  I haven't seen much of him this year but their fans and local journalists seem to rate him highly.
The one area where I feel Martin has been worthy of criticism is the left back position where he seems happy with Ward or playing Brady out of position. Doherty and Cunningham have both deserved a look in friendlies and with Doherty's ability to cover either side he should be a regular in the 23.

He was players, fans and journos player of the year for Wolves last season, clean sweep. Should be a regular in the squad alright.

I have to say, one of my biggest issues with Martin O’Neill is that he’s never given Matt a chance.

This guy is 26, in the prime of his career and playing very well for arguably the best team in the championship. He’s a far better player than Christie at club level.

He could very possibly be playing Premier League football next season, I’m not certain that Christie will ever make that jump.

Think he has had him in the squad at time. He does appear to be doing very well so it's a bit strange he has not had more of a look in, especially at times we've even had to use meylor as a makeshift full back. MoN obviously not been so impressed so far

Forgot to mention that he can play left or right back. Needs a serious look in friendlies after we qualify for the World Cup, Coleman may never come back the same player, and Christie is not the long term solution.

Experimenting with RB’s definitely needed

I’d struggle to see how Doherty hasn’t made any impact in training. Most of the squad are lower premier league or higher championship players, he’s bettering these types of players week in and week out at club level.

Yeah it is mad that Doherty has not got more of a look in, of all of our fringe players I think he is the one who can feel the most hard done by. In fairness to Christie he made a good first impression when he joined up with the squad, once he was in there was never a need to replace him so Doherty has never really had a chance. With Colemans injury I thought he would definitely get a look in but it hasn't happened for whatever reason. If Wolves get promoted you'd have to imagine he will be in for the next campaign especially considering he can play either of the full back roles.

I’d certainly hope he’d be in the squad, we’re not at the level to be saying no to any players playing in the Premier League (if he gets there).

He's been Wolves player of the season before aswel. He's a better player than Christie imo but sure that's why MON gets paid a lot of money to decide these things. Thing is we could lose him to Holland if we don't cap him quick his mother is Dutch.

I’ve nothing against Christie, and actually think he’s done well since coming in. But Doherty is actually a good footballer. Christie is a good athlete with absolutely no end product.

Baffling stuff!

Surely himself and Greg Cunningham deserve a chance. Mon is calling up 2 fullbacks in his extended 90 man squad

I remember he retweeted a fan complaining about Brian Lenihan getting called up ahead of him. Maybe MON took issue with that.

Have heard from a mate that has interviewed him several times that he has serious attitude issues. But so does our assistant manager. Call him up MON.

Our assistant manager was also a world class player, makes it that bit easier to tolerate a difficult personality

He was asked several years ago while on loan at Hibs if he fancied playing for them next season after losing in the cup 5-1 to Hearts, he replied "No chance". Its on Youtube somewhere. He got a load of abuse from Hib's fans as it wasn't a very appropriate response after losing to your biggest rivals.

I wouldn't hold it against him though, really rate him and think he'll go on to be a solid PL performer.

Hasn't he been playing on the right of a four in a 3-4-3 for Wolves lately ? They spent heavily for this season & he survived &is in their side in a key position, he won their penalty on Saturday also. How he is not in our squads is becoming a real mystery definitely if it's just down to on the park matters.

The same could said about Enda Stevens. My mate is a ST holder at Pompey and said he left a far better player than when he arrived and could be decent in the Championship... which he is now. I don't see the harm in including him within the 48 man squad.

Great to see Matt has traveled to Copenhagen with the squad, not least because MO'N has decided the extra cover at full back could be useful!

Absolutely. With Ward and Christie both on bookings it was imperative we had full back cover. Doherty can play both sides to which is even better.

Walters coming back from an offside position but Shane Long was definitely onside- Shane Lonnggggggg.... has done it!!!!

Not to mention he is a better right back than Christie.

And only goes to highlight a ball dropped by MON. Cover provided by a player with no experience at this level.

Has looked comfortable at leftback in the past.

Was reading what Wolves fans have to say about him and they reckon he’s been one of their players of the season. Wouldn’t count my chickens yet, regarding Wolves in the Premier League next season.

Its a long season but they're playing unreal stuff from what Ive read and spent loads of money over the summer too...You'd have to imagine a playoff spot is guaranteed at least
