Forget the rest it's all about Mario! Whether true or not when have we ever been linked with a player of this caliber? If it comes off it would put another 5k on the gate and show massive intent from Fosun! 👍.

Plan must be Dicko, Balotelli and Bodvarsson in a 4-3-3 with Tex, Onian and Jon behind. Looks exciting.

I am totally fed up of hearing about how we are loaning this and that player! How about buying some quality players! I know we can't attract top players but, we could attract the type of players who can help us gain promotion and whom could hold their own in the Prem! Maybe I'm being a little impatient and come the end of the TW, we will have bought in some good additions! Yes, I want to see us up near the top of the Champ ASAP and showing that we mean business!

No one seems to have heard much about Ola John bar overseas sources. Oh and if anyone thinks Balotelli is coming, you're mad. SecretWolf you're clearly a WUM making up rubbish, kindly do one.

Seems a bit like the club is trying to complete a jigsaw without a picture to help them. Putting in bids for any player who might be available or interested rather than having a team building plan. I am a bit worried that Jeff has given too much of a free reign to Mendes who is not a coach and does not plan tactically for the long season ahead. Making "headline" signings might be exciting to read about but it has to transfer to good performance on the pitch and I suppose time will tell. Just hoping we are not going to be guilty of making expensive mistakes that we will live to regret.

"BALOTELLI GAMBLE CONTINUES
The money continues to come for Mario Balotelli to join Wolves this month. The price had already been cut from 28/ 1 yesterday to 8/ 1 this morning, and the Liverpool striker is now just 5/ 4 to make the move to Molineux. Ajax are now out to 7/ 1, with former favourites Chievo now 8/ 1."
Im suprised Guillem Balague hasn't pulled some magical fluff story from his butthole yet.
11.) 18 Aug 2016
18 Aug 2016 15:23:19
Why is everyone expecting Dicko to come straight back in as 1st choice striker? He is an OK centre forward nothing more nothing less.
12.) 18 Aug 2016
18 Aug 2016 15:23:59
Ola John is a talented young winger with a season in the championship under his belt with Reading where he scored goals from the wing and created loads of chances. Watched him play and he looked good, way better than Jeremy Helan that we loaned last season.
Think about it though - if a Champions League team like Benfica are only loaning a player out 9 times out of 10 that player is in their long term plans and they value them. Loaning is a win win situation and this season is to improve and make the playoffs at least.

Silly me wantin players like Ballatelli? Doh! Let's stick to Evans coady Edwards Saville Hause landell Mason Henry etc etc etc! Really exciting! Doh! Your ambition level is zero Doogs Tosh! Don't u understand players like this are needed to sell the Wolves brand world wide so in doing so can entice better quality players and that will bring more success! I'd imagine marquee signins will be a massive part of Fosun.
14.) 18 Aug 2016
18 Aug 2016 15:58:02
With you on this one. The odd marquee signing will make people sit up and take notice. It will also encourage higher calibre players to consider Wolves. Honestly, some fans seem to want the old grey Jackett back, complete with average players.
15.) 18 Aug 2016
18 Aug 2016 15:58:23
I personally don't really cares who comes in aslong as I don't see Evans, Saville, Price, Henry, Byrne or Edwards occupying the midfield again. Utter 2nd rate Jackett rubbish.

These big names are just pipe dream stuff, we're being used to tout these guys aaround and they'll go elsewhere. I'm still yet to see the real intent from the owners, 3 million spent and a few loans. Come on Wolves, get on with it. Why haven't we gone back in with a bid for Martin? I hope things are going on behind the scenes and another 5 or 6 come in or it'll be another midtable at best finish.
18.) 18 Aug 2016

I'm personally getting very disillusioned by this whole takeover. We've spend less than £5 million, so far, with the team ending up with 5 loan deals. Compare that to Villa and Newcastle who find top class players and sign them within 3 days. How can a company like Fosun, worth £50 billion, be linked to 30 top class pro's and not bid for any of them, or only bid for those they know will fail (aka, 5m for Chris Martin)? Something isn't right.

Disillusioned . Strong words sir, I feel for you if u feel that way, you need to relax my friend and take these next next few weeks and what u read with a pinch of salt .
Wolves have been and will be linked with so many players they almost get forgotten by the next day . Who knows with balotelli, has he just dropped by to see what the club can offer him and vice versa .
Tomorrow who knows, carvallho may be mentioned as wolves look for a c/ h.
It is great chit chat so please try not to feel disillusioned.

But Wavid you have to look at Cilla and Newcastle differently to us, they have both been in the Prem (Villa forever) and are more well known or seen as more likely to get back to the Prem faster.
They both have better squads that just need adding to where as we need a whole new squad.
Plus Mike Ashley has been the owner of Newcastle a long time so there's no big changes to be made and Villa's new owner has had slightly longer than ours to get going.
Even if the majority of our new players so far are loans at least we are getting new faces in and so far so good.
Let's be positive Wavid, it's lookin better than last season already plus we've got Dicko and Graham and Zyro and Williamson to come back.
With Ola John about to sign today and Prince last week we definitely need a LB, CB and a ST
That will be 9 new faces in to go with those to return from injury, I reckon te owners are trying to get buyers for some of our deadwood too.
21.) 18 Aug 2016
18 Aug 2016 17:25:46
Summer_Wolf you chat some utter rubbish.
Yet to see some real intent? Why because they are doing their business quiet unlike Villa? Its been WELL reported in Portugal by TOP reporters over there that we was in for Talisca and it got well down the line. We've had a bid rejected for Martin from Derby. The players we have signed so far might be on loan but a loan signing does NOT take away the quality from a player. Teixeira is the best CM at the club and is onloan. You can not force a team to sell or a player to join. We WILL sign more players before the window shuts. Stop with your pathetic moaning and grow up.

Well, as Winston Churchill said, you can't please all of the people all of the time. He must have been thinking of Wolves fans.
23.) 18 Aug 2016
18 Aug 2016 17:33:07
Wow we are soon rubbishing Price and Evans in the new world order. They may not have the flair and natural touch of Costa and Texeira but we are going to need a squad over the full season and its maybe going to be the British lads that provide a platform for team spirit. Price and Evans can only develop playing with better players and its clear to me that Zenga likes Saville. They could still have a role to play in the future.
24.) 18 Aug 2016
18 Aug 2016 17:36:23
The majority of business will probably be rushed through in the last few hours of the transfer window. I think that's why we are associated with every man and his dog just all enquiries at this stage or loans. The main signings will be done later.

PaulTamworth - look at the face, tongue stuck firmly in cheek. You read far to much into things my boy. Irony? Capiche?
However, he is still idle and does not track back and that is within an environment where you get more time on the ball.
Yes to have quality players would be great, but the right ones.
He would need a better work ethic in the championship, but obviously you cannot see that and just want a name.

Let's get Morgan n money back.
OMG WTF do you want.
Had the old regime been at the helm Texiera wouldn't have even been on the radar.
Interesting that Rowett wanted JDB but was priced outta the market, but he was cheap WASNT HE.

Well you may be deluding yourself as they will not come WHILST we are in the chump. That's my opinion, I would love to be wrong.
The realist's new post up the board sums this up.
But back to your point, if we can get a name from world football that we have not herd of, but has a better reputation than the one mentioned (Balotelli) then good.

WAvidsmith I agree to an extent over KJ midfield purchases however you are wrong over Jack Price, this guy doesn't get the headlines but he's in the right position at the right time and does the simple things very, very well for me he's in the first 11.
Goldfinger your post regarding villa an Newcastle and our squad was spit on mate 👍. It will take time.
Oh for me ballobaby is too much a gamble in my opinion only. At this level Chris Martin is what we need now, but my opinion is small. Anyway UTW ⚽⚽⚽⚽.

Wolvesaywe77 - you're deluded if you thought we were ever going to sign someone like that. We're being used for other players to get them in the shop window. Yes we probably will bring people in but not people of that calibre. It's you who needs to have a bit of common sense my friend. No need to be so aggressive thanks. Yes I haven't seen real intent, Yet. Which is the truth, we've spent peanuts. If Morgan had only spent 3 million and a few loans we'd be shouting from the rooftops saying he's not investing bla bla bla. They have work to do.

Dicko is an "OK centre forward" we wouldn't have got as close to the playoffs two seasons ago and certainly not promoted from league one with his goals and pace ripping defences apart.
You like many others need to shut your hole and stop being a negative and sit back and enjoy the ride and get behind the team instead of criticising every move the team make everyone is forgetting it's a young team learning their trade there's bound to be mistakes and there's still room for improvement!
