Can anyone give any info on Dendonker please? is he injured, still not match fit or simply not seen good enough by Nuno?

17 Sep 2018 15:03:47
Its because he's not match fit. According to nuno.

17 Sep 2018 22:28:51
Have to say KSS I'm finding that a bit of a weird one as well, just don't see how it can JUST be match fitness. I mean we signed him over a month a go now so by this stage he has no excuse for not being up to speed. Add to this he is still getting in the Belgium squad despite not playing a league game for us, so they clearly ain't worried about his fitness. Not saying its anything sinister (as I have not a clue why it is) but I do find it a bit of an odd one. I mean surely if its just getting him up to speed then why not put him on the bench?! I imagine he'd be quite handy protecting a lead? Will be good when we do get to see him cause he's been well rated along the way. Maybe Nunos keeping as a special surprise for Jose, with E and S talk that a deal between him and United broke down last Jan it could be like a ' Heres what you could have one'! :) Special treat for the 'Sulky one'! COYW ;)

17 Sep 2018 22:38:37
Is that still the case? I think Nuno is just very conservative about the team. He will only change it if he thinks it's not working or he has to (injury etc) . Dendoncker will get his turn in due course. Certainly in the Carabao next week.

17 Sep 2018 23:32:22
There is not place for him in the lineup. He is healthy.

17 Sep 2018 10:54:26
I can't for the life of me, understand why Nuno keeps faith in Bonatini. We got away with it yesterday, but we can't be so profligate in front of goal against top teams, we won't get 30 efforts on goal and need to bury our chances every game. We need a striker, not another winger.

17 Sep 2018 12:57:35
Oh bore off. If you listen or read anything Nuno and people close to Nuno say, Bonatini and Jimenez aren’t used as “out and out” strikers, they’re there to support the wingers and wing backs in attack, link play, hold the ball up, short neat one twos to create space in behind and pull a defender out of position. Traore’s goal v West Ham was down the Bonatini coming deep for the ball and drawing the defender to come with him leaving gaps for Traore to run into. It’s the way we and many other teams play now.

17 Sep 2018 13:09:15
I can't for the life of me understand why negative fans well so called fans constantly moan no matter what.

17 Sep 2018 13:35:02
Man City 28 attempts at goal against Fulham (a promoted side) 9 on target 3 goals . yes we had 30 chances, yes we missed a few, on another day two or three or more would have gone in, Joe Hart was absolutely brilliant by the way. We’re playing the best football most of us have ever seen, The team with changes from last season have only played five matches together ( in the PREMIER LEAGUE) and are getting better and better, no player deserves to be singled out as “not good enough” the strength of the Wolf is in the pack - If Nuno picks ‘em we support ‘em!

17 Sep 2018 13:37:13
I still can't believe it's not butter.

17 Sep 2018 15:09:11
Best wolves football I've ever watched ( in 40 + years ) but we definitely need another striker in January to help Raul out. How about Tommy Orpington?

17 Sep 2018 16:35:13
We're well covered for the front three, but I do like the lad Ollie Watkins from Brentford, has promise.

17 Sep 2018 22:34:56
I'm still wishing on a star for Vincent Aboubakar! I think its unlikely cause there will be MANY watching him. As much as I rate Leo and Raul for what they bring to the team (have we already forgotten the class assist by Leo the week before?! ) . But a player like Aboubakar really would take us to the next level, that said its likely to cost £30+m so probs just a dream! COYW ;)

13 Sep 2018 09:57:55
I think another striker, particularly if Raul isn’t in double figures by January.

13 Sep 2018 13:22:35
Since Jonny is a loan deal, they will probably go for a left wingback.
I don't know if there is any chance to agree to a permanent move for Jonny or a loan extension but I would try to get someone at least as good as Wolves have stated that they are not interested in developing other teams' players.
That being said, if he is the best they can get and will help them up the table, I'm sure they can live with that.

13 Sep 2018 13:23:24
I think Raul J is more of an impact type player he has been used that way in Portugal, I do love Jimmy tho, he is a great player in the way we play, in january I see 3 players coming in, a fullback to cover doc, possibly a centermid depending on the dendonker situation, and a striker.

13 Sep 2018 13:28:05
There were only 22 players who reached double figures for the whole of last season let alone up to January.

Relax and have faith. It's about the team working well together and the goals coming from all around the team not just one main striker.

13 Sep 2018 14:26:38
Well said Peter, you missing me?

14 Sep 2018 01:31:18
I definitely think we need a striker, there's speculation that rashford could be listed on loan and I doubt man it's will loan to title rival so maybe there's an opportunity 👍 I prefer Jonny on the right so a lwb needed with doherty, jota and costa looking out of their depth at the moment.

14 Sep 2018 09:42:06
Would like to see Mir getting a chance when he comes back.

14 Sep 2018 10:40:22
Costa looking out of his depth what team you watching?

14 Sep 2018 12:39:39
Taking the Pizzi. Yet another Portuguese player joining Wolves in December, from Benfica.

14 Sep 2018 21:03:48
Are you sure WobblyBobblies? I only ask because the transfer window is not open until January.

15 Sep 2018 11:02:50
Well rated RKO it looks as if you must know more than Steve Bull who has rated the two best players as Patricio and Costa. But what does he know?

15 Sep 2018 11:04:19
Its alright saying have Rashford on loan, but cannot see that happening unless we have the option of buying him at the end of loan, which I don't think utd will let happen.

15 Sep 2018 11:39:26
OGW, it's Chrisyap who said Costa wasn't good enough not Rated RKO.

15 Sep 2018 15:33:27
OGW read my post again correctly.

15 Sep 2018 19:41:44
Apologies. Happy to be corrected. It was obviously the post you were commenting on that I hadn't connected to so I thought your comment was a fresh one.

15 Sep 2018 21:15:28
No worries OGW happens to us all mate.

10 Sep 2018 11:59:15
Wondering how many Wolves fans will be at Old Trafford? United allocate away fans 3,000 tickets, while thousands more are on sale all over the internet at extortionate prices. Makes a mockery of having segregation in football stadiums, remember to sit on your hands lads!

10 Sep 2018 19:24:26
I'd rather watch on TV than pay for overpriced tickets. Are these part of the Wolves allocation or are they ManU fans selling? (Or do we even know? )

12 Sep 2018 14:29:00
I’m trying to get my local mates to get tickets for us but I think they’re worried they’ll be sitting next to a wolf when they lose.

14 Sep 2018 16:09:49
I will be there but leaving my scarf at home, sitting on my hands and yes working on my Manchester accent. I haven’t seen Wolves play at Old Trafford for 50 years, for various reasons not least being in the wrong league for most of those years and also due living in various parts of the world. Ok I’m paying through the nose but what the heck - who knows what tomorrow may bring. Come on you Wolves, let’s take the 3 points and make a statement. What a time for Wolves supporters.

14 Sep 2018 17:49:19
Wouldn't bother with the Manc accent as hardly any there! You'd be better with a cockney accent and fit in easier 😂.

15 Sep 2018 14:57:19
What I got at Old Trafford: “You slag, bang out of order! ” Fixture v. Wolves 2011, took my top off - no bra! Very cockney.

17 Sep 2018 13:41:35
That's why they are wobbly, clearly!

09 Sep 2018 09:40:23
Its rife in all the papers and on sky sports again regarding the Neves to City or Utd. i'd be absolutely gutted if we lose him in Jan. I know it's all part and parcel of the game but he is our star player and so integral to where we are now and where we want to be I don't think there's any doubt in that. They say no player is bigger than the club but my word this lads as close as you get to being just that! #Nevesno1fan. UTW.

09 Sep 2018 11:23:18
Hopefully he’ll give us the season, and you never know depending how we do, forecast for next season he’ll stay even longer. He needs to play European football champions league or otherwise. Whether that’s with wolves obviously depends whether we get there. But he will go eventually. Personally I think he’s a Barca/ Madrid kinda guy in 2 seasons plus. For around 100 million. Class act though and so pleased he pulled on a wolves shirt 🐺.

09 Sep 2018 13:31:58
There’s a piece in the Birmingham mail online about Neves and the Manchester clubs.
He says how happy he is here, how settled, how he feels cherished by the fans. He goes on to say he doesn’t even consider making a move.

We all know he may go in the future, but at least now he’s spoken out himself to say he’s happy to remain a Wolf.

09 Sep 2018 14:46:20
Well let's start rumours about Wolves and Mo Salah.
I figure 60 million should be insulting enough.

09 Sep 2018 15:23:22
The papers must be bored because this story has been doing the rounds for the last 3 weeks. As Nuno and Fosun said a few weeks ago, Neves is under contract but if a bid of £100m is received, they'll consider it.

09 Sep 2018 16:48:42
Price for Neves.

Man Utd - £100m plus Pogba and Lukaku

Man City - £100m plus De Bruyne and Jesus

Liverpool - £100m plus Saleh and Mané

Spurs - £100m plus Kane and Erikssen

Chelsea - £150m plus Hazard


09 Sep 2018 19:30:31
Any of those deals would put me at ease DAS.

09 Sep 2018 19:35:23
Give him away why don’t you.
Seriously, I think he’ll stay stay another couple of years - he’d still be only 23. Then off to R Madrid or Barca. Could be looking at £120m by then. Unless WWFC are in Europe and playing in the new 60,000 New Mol!

09 Sep 2018 21:50:42
Let's be real, Nuno is covering the bases here, Moutinho in to bring the best from Neves, a win win for Portugal and Wolves, he's a smart cookie, what would Neves learn from the sulky Man U lot? .

09 Sep 2018 22:32:01
It took City 2 seasons to get Mahrez so let's not panic yet. DAS I think you should replace Thelwell.

10 Sep 2018 12:32:54
“He says how happy he is here, how settled, how he feels cherished by the fans. He goes on to say he doesn’t even consider making a move. ”

C’mon, you would have to be pretty naive to believe that from a footballer. All that is code for - I am not going to openly agitate for a move.

When these rumours emerge, there is always an element of truth behind it. Don’t forget Mendes is the agent, so he is the one stirring things up. And therefore, £60 million is probably the fee being discussed.

And it will be 10% now and the rest (say 75%) paid over 2-5 and the remaining 15% in clauses and add-ons.

That’s just how transfers are paid.

I suspect a fee will end up higher and I don’t think he will move in January. If anyone does make a bid, it will be next summer. At this stage, people will want to see how he copes over the season.

10 Sep 2018 12:42:17
What's Thelwell done wrong now? Negotiated the signings of Moutinho, Patricio, Jimenez and Traore? Or the fact that he's got rid of the likes of Gladon, Mason etc?

10 Sep 2018 13:41:18
I missed one out!

Price for Neves:

West Brom : £10bn plus their entire playing staff, their entire backroom staff, The Hawthorns (to be bulldozed and used as an overflow car park-cum park and ride for Wolves fans) and Frank Skinner and Adrian Chiles dressed as court jesters in Wolves colours providing pre-match entertainment at Molineux for the next 25 years.

Seems a fair exchange?


10 Sep 2018 17:57:40
Will Neves stay or go? I think it entirely depends on how we perform. The better we perform, the longer he will stay and the more his value will rise. Personally I think he is potentially the most valuable player in the world if his progress continues. Traore will also, in my opinion, be mega. Happy times!

10 Sep 2018 19:27:50
Fosuns aren't like a Sainsburys and sell their products at a short term profit .

Fosuns are richer now than Man utd, so would laugh in the faces of any bids .

In 2 or 3 years it will be Neves and what he wants to do. All he wants to do is play and Wolves and Fosuns have given him a perfect home. to express and mature.

Fosuns are global, its Mendes who is to b watched.

We as fans are experiencing this for a first time, but in my mind the spine of Wolves

Patricio - mouthinho / NEVES wonttb going anywhere.

10 Sep 2018 23:39:26
Nerves won't be leaving in January, he will give us at least till end of season but I think he know we are building something that is very exciting and its being built around him. He turned down juventus to join us and let's face it mourinho will ruin his career as he does with all youngsters but will be a very good replacement for fernandinho at city.

11 Sep 2018 09:19:35
Thelwell done nothing wrong Jas just humour with DAS about his transfer policy.

04 Sep 2018 23:13:04
Well in the interest of fair is fair and all that I have to cut myself a relative slice of ye olde humble pie! I was not overly keen when we were tied with Traore, unsure that he was worth the outlay due to the rough edges. Now in my defence the rough edges were correct, he pretty much gave the ball away on his first three runs last match when he should have looked up.

However in his defence I suspect that's mostly because he's on from the bench and trying to prove himself which he rather did with that pretty darn important run and tidy finish! I now see what Nuno (and to give credit) many on here saw when considering his VAST potential and with that speed it is VAST potential!

Such exciting times to be a Wolves fan, that game was the classic kind of fixture that EVERY other season in the Prem we would have snatched defeat from the jaws of success (the Arnautovic chance springs to mind;) but we FINALLY look like the real deal! And on a that note. what about our new keeper I mean just WOW! I know its early days but he doesn't look far off a De Gea quality keeper and for a newly promoted team that's beyond crazy!

I think cause he's a keeper (and currently free) we have all taken for granted the level of the coup that was (myself included)! But when you put it into the context of signing one of (probably) the top five (I'd argue top three;) in his position in the LEAGUE well it just still blows my mind that he's a wolf! Such good times to be a fan, just need to keep flying under that radar because sooner or later some big clubs are going to start to notice just how good our Nuno is! Hopefully he wants to see just how strong this pack can be COYW ;)

05 Sep 2018 08:21:36
Add Moutinho at £5m and I think we've made the best 2 signings of the summer. Patricio is World class and Moutinho is starting to dictate play from midfield.

06 Sep 2018 15:21:31
The risk now is predators. If Man. Utd. go on another losing run, Mourinho will be sacked, and Nuno will replace him - then expect a December swoop for Boly and Neves. Fosun have to give Nuno the salary that leads him to say no to Man. Utd., Benfica, et al. He is also key to keeping Neves.

06 Sep 2018 15:33:01
Its no news fortnight, not a lot of prem banter, apart from JM and Man U.

you or i could generate the next exclusive headline, . why not VILLA to replace BRUCE with BASIL BRUSH . 😂.

06 Sep 2018 15:55:07
The thought of Nuno going to ManU is worse than awful although they will probably choose an established name with Champions League experience like Zidane I reckon we will be safe with Nuno this season but we have seen managers like him like Martinez moving to pastures new we are ok so long as Fosun are behind us and him.

07 Sep 2018 00:56:43
Well that right there was a SERIOUS case of the 'commentators curse' considering I wrote that post two days before the story appeared! That said its still just a STORY and when you read it the opening gambit is 'if Zidane turned it down' well (for me) that's the end of the sentence because in NO way could Zidane turn that job down! So I think we will be safe from United (for now) cause dare I say it they haven't got the sense, like you say Window they'd MUCH sooner a 'Champs League name'. However the very fact this article has come about this early on in the season shows what we are up against. I think we are safe from most of the teams outside of the Champs league, cause I think he's sensible enough to know that we are only a few seasons off a Euro quals team! The problem is that by the end of the season I wouldn't be surprised if a champs league team looks at him, take Spurs for example. What if Poch ends up at United or Real, then suddenly Spurs are looking for a manger and he fits ALL their criteria (good footy, youth development, media savvy)! Especially when you consider Poch was managing at Espanyol then Southampton before they took him (not unlike Nunos trajectory) . The pessimist in me says we will be lucky to keep him for the full season then he will be on to bigger things, but the childish Wolves fan in me keeps saying what IF?!

What IF he has bought into Fosun dream? What IF 'the strength of the wolf is in the pack'?! Cause the very thing that makes him special is the very thing that will bring the big boys to our door. Cause there are a hat full of managers that can get a team to punch above there weight and grab the odd Euro place out of the blue (Dyche last season springs to mind) . But there are VERY few managers that can do that whilst playing sexy football, and Nuno is doing that with ease! IN NUNO WE TRUST! HE'S A WOLF! 😉.

07 Sep 2018 10:36:56
Bullysboy great interesting reading post as always. topman👍
Wobbliesbobblies are you a wolves fan? i, m not sure by your past posts .

07 Sep 2018 10:54:08
Nuno has a dream! Why would he want to have a nightmare? United’s domination of English football ended with Sir Alex! No one will be given the time required to rebuild their club, transfer policy of buying other teams “best players” doesn’t work (Sanchez - Pogba - FRED - etc) The way United is being run these days they’d be lucky to get Steve Bruce to manage them, think Nuno will finish what he started and we can all carry on dreaming. Coincidently, didn’t CIty try unsettling Neves just before we played them? Me thinks the “Big boys” are getting a bit concerned!

08 Sep 2018 07:56:31
Imagine if Nuno became our Alex Ferguson staying with us a generation building a world beating team how good is that?

10 Sep 2018 08:27:05
Start designing that statue!

04 Sep 2018 10:22:50
Iorfa has been added to the Premier League squad list. I assume this is going to be emergency cover for Doc if there are injuries to him or Jonny.

04 Sep 2018 15:21:43
Looks that way. He has plenty of experience now, and Doc will be injured sooner or later. We've been lucky with him the last few seasons.

He can fill in for Bennett too, now that Batth has moved out.

05 Sep 2018 21:50:42
Maybe he has demonstrated a positive attitude and a willingness to learn. This appears to be a pre-requisite for Nuno from all his players and quite rightly so. I think a few, Iorfa included, didn’t ingratiate themselves with the coach when he first arrived and he very quickly shipped them out on loan. Looks like a second chance has been granted and Iorfa may well have shown that he has learned his lesson. He has a lot of natural attributes, but has a lot to learn if he is to fulfil his early promise.
Other possibility is that we tried to move him out and there was no takers, so to keep some transfer value he has been named in the first team squad, prefer the first option but have no insider knowledge!

02 Sep 2018 12:00:27
Has Sporting Lisbon's claim over Rui Patricio gone away yet? It seems awfully quiet.

{Ed001's Note - not yet mate, but it will take time.}

03 Sep 2018 23:26:08
Raheem Sterling has withdrawn from the England squad due to a back injury.
Can you injure your back diving? When he got that free kick against us at Molineux I nearly called an ambulance for him.

02 Sep 2018 11:10:40
Patricio will earn us a few points with his saves. To go into the prem with such a high qualty keeper is massive 👏👏.

31 Aug 2018 16:29:10
Seems Danny has gone to Boro a good move for him typical Pulis type of player and a good fit for Boro not one of my favourite players a bit to limited for where we are now and going forward but a fantastic pro with s great attitude a great club man good luck danny.

31 Aug 2018 17:48:59
And Bright to Kilmarnock probably why we didn't see them playing in the cup match.

31 Aug 2018 20:33:44
Only Neves and Patricia called up by Portugal.

31 Aug 2018 20:34:34
Good luck Danny Batth
Great Pro and bleeds gold and black
Some supposed fans on other sites disrespecting him, shows they know nothing about football.

01 Sep 2018 08:21:29
Scratos people have short memories Batth was among our best players before the Fosun investment in a defense with Doc Stearmam Iorfa Hause Ebanks-Landell we are fortunate to have Boly and Bennett has been a surprisingly good signing and Coady playing in a position that didn't exist before Nuno so good luck Danny you could be in another promotion winning team.

01 Sep 2018 09:23:39
I agree guys. Danny is Wolves through and through but time moves on and it is clear that he is not in Nuno's plans. Whatever his limitations and whether these will be exposed in the Premier League, he led our team in our rise back from a crisis and his contribution should not be forgotten.

01 Sep 2018 11:57:54
It's simple, if Batth wants to play regularly he leaves us as he has.

01 Sep 2018 12:41:47
Batth will win promotion with Middlesbrough snd alongside George Saville there, an England call-up.

01 Sep 2018 21:20:36
I wish Batth and Saville all the best for the future. A rumour is that Saville’s move will be made permanent for £7.5mil. That shows how far he has improved. That said, neither player is of the standard Nuno expects in the PL.
