Wolves are ready to pull the plug on Marshall deal and look elsewhere.
17 Jan 2017 08:13:32
The mls being league one standard. Are you sure?
Do you know how many international south americans play in the mls - or how usa football is progressing. The USA international team are as good as England, if not better.
At the end of the day the championship is an average league watched by a lot of people because of cultural influences. and because of that we think ours is the best - It isn't. I think that we have one of the most average leagues in existence. don't believe the hype!
17 Jan 2017 09:32:21
Its the 5th biggest league in the world enough said.
17 Jan 2017 09:33:55
I'm not at all sure the MLS is League One standard, I did use a question mark. It's the general opinion but who knows? Lots of fans reckon the MLS/ SPL are roughly similar to League One, but probably the Championship is more the mark. That said, Robbie Keane would be on high wages anyway and that brings risks of unrest, as we saw in the past at Wolves.
16 Jan 2017 08:52:11
I haven't heard anything but wouldn't it be worth trying to take Robbie Keane until end of season and see how it goes?
16 Jan 2017 09:47:02
Been linked to Preston on a short term deal.
16 Jan 2017 10:03:58
I know, but wages could be a problem there, just think could be worth a shout as we could do with someone who can score a few goals.
16 Jan 2017 10:42:11
I would have loved Robbie in a few years ago. But, at his age of 36 and recent seasons in the MLS (League One standard? ) it would be taking a risk to sign him now. If he was one big wages, but not scoring, it could upset the dressing room. Good luck to Robbie and Preston though.
16 Jan 2017 10:51:57
Keane would be awesome, you never know he did play with Lambert at Celtic and Lambert took him to Villa on loan so they know each other well enough, like everything with us will come down to wages though.
16 Jan 2017 12:19:28
Seen a romour were after Stephen Kingsley LB from swansea?
Don't know much about him?
16 Jan 2017 12:49:45
Wolves don't need another left back, and they don't need another right back, either. Doc/ Hause on the left and Coady/ Iorfa on the right are fine. Change for the sake of it again in the wrong areas.
16 Jan 2017 13:16:46
Agree, the focus has to be a new forward, masons goal on Saturday was the first goal from one of our forwards since August which is just embarrassing, Think Dicko proved again he's not a lone striker. Always played his best along side Afobe in my opinion.
16 Jan 2017 13:50:39
Totally agree with you, I think in every other position for now we are fine, I know we could maybe get a better CM or CB but we need a goal scorer
16 Jan 2017 14:10:27
oliver mcburnie of swansea would be a good choice for a striker played well against us last week scoring 2, not getting game time down here at the moment,
16 Jan 2017 14:13:15
Considering Marshall is just a carbon copy of Coady, I don't see the point. Coady is starting to make a terrific right back and probably crosses better, too.
One CH, MF and Striker would be fine. Nothing more, just 3 quality signings in the right places.
16 Jan 2017 16:18:25
Marshall is the replacement for Costa when he leaves he will probably start if a wingers gets injured. I think it's going to be interesting when Zyro comes back, whether he plays or not.
16 Jan 2017 17:25:48
Coady's pass to Costa for that goal must be the pass of the season! I'm not sure about Marshall either. Implies Coady might be receiving interest from elsewhere. Or it might be that £1.4m isn't a lot of money at this level and Lambert can get him to punch above his weight.
16 Jan 2017 18:24:17
Wolves011, please understand that Costa is a left winger and Marshall is a right back or right winger. Therefore, how in Gods name is he going to be Costa's replacement, lol?
16 Jan 2017 18:28:00
Marshall is no better than Coady, in my opinion. Unless Coady is going to Newcastle for £5m, I can't really see the point of this transfer.
16 Jan 2017 19:11:12
Wavid have to disagree regarding Costa's position. Although he seems to be almost equally comfortable on either his right or left side and he covers ground across the pitch, he has been playing wide right with Cav playing wide left. Zyro and Graham are both naturally left sided players so with Wallace being allowed to leave and no desire to bring Henry back we are short of cover on the right. Marshall prefers an attacking role. Whilst I would love Costa to be here next season we have to be realistic. He has already declared his desire to get back to Benfica and failing that Prem vultures will have noticed the quality.
16 Jan 2017 20:21:56
Well said Victory v and buy the way we have just beat vile after waiting over 30 yes at home have you all forgotten already and back on the moaning gravey train
16 Jan 2017 21:13:44
I know they switch but Zyro and Cav are mainly on the right. Costa/ Graham left.
16 Jan 2017 22:23:11
New to this site but had to comment on Costa's position. He has never lined up on the left for Wolves - despite him being predominantly left-footed. Jordon Graham is mainly right- footed but usually plays on the left - it's modern-day football innit?
16 Jan 2017 23:05:58
Where do you get your sense of humour from Wavidsmith? I see you have put Coady's price up from £4m to £5m. He is such a limited footballer that he is worth £3/ 4m tops although he is doing a half decent fill in job at right backind. He struggles to run with the ball, pretty basic for a footballer really . If you honestly think Newcastle are interested in him I'd suggest that you go on Ebay to shop for a new crystal ball. Benitez is astute not stupid!
17 Jan 2017 08:50:17
Newcastle want Coady. Don't ask me why. The price? Around the £4-£5m mark
17 Jan 2017 08:57:31
and besides which, Coady is a really versatile player.
17 Jan 2017 09:07:58
The only conclusion to be reached from the above is that Wavidsmith hasn't been to a game this season, or watched one on TV for that matter. Costa starts on the right every single game. Him and Cav switch for a max of 10/ 15 mins a game, and normally immediately following a Costa corner when he is out of position.
You're even wrong on Zyro, who started all of his Wolves appearances so far on the left or up top.
Going back to original point, I'd be surprised if there's anyone available who could replace what Costa has brought to the team. We therefore need to have options available, so Marshall seems like a good start to me.
15 Jan 2017 17:46:55
£1.3m bid in for Ben Marshall. £4m for Sam Gallagher being considered by Southampton.
Also Wallace, Teixeira, Borthwick-Jackson and Oniangue set to depart.
15 Jan 2017 18:06:30
Wheres that come from?
15 Jan 2017 19:47:49
Good knowledge and bang on
Marshall deal as good as done.
Money available so expect us to get deal over the lines or Gallagher.
Helder gets me off my seat.
We need to do our part as fans to win his heart.
15 Jan 2017 20:51:15
Marshall and Gallagher load of rubbish Chinese won't spend big Pl said that on WM he said Villa got more spending power than WW
15 Jan 2017 21:08:01
Here we go another whinger come out of the woodwork
15 Jan 2017 21:17:57
No he said villa can't match wba spending. check Google.
15 Jan 2017 21:51:24
As though PL is going to tell everyone that we've got loads of cash to spend c'mon think about it
15 Jan 2017 22:46:07
What are you thinking realist? Jewellery? Or something simple like chocolates and flowers?
16 Jan 2017 00:21:40
Marshall deal is preparation for Costa departure at the end of the season. Gallagher deal would be amazing but can we get it sorted before rest of the league wake up.
16 Jan 2017 11:21:57
Brothwick-jackson already gone and where did you hear that?
15 Jan 2017 16:30:45
Wolves are in advanced talks with FC Utrecht striker Sebastien Haller - the deal is involves cash plus Paul Gladon who wants to return to his native Holland.
15 Jan 2017 16:59:30
Where did this information come from bb?
15 Jan 2017 17:04:29
Would cost 4 to 5 million.
15 Jan 2017 17:24:13
I mentioned Haller over the summer as he has a very good strike rate. There was a very tenuous link back then. Would be a very good signing. Look at his stats.
15 Jan 2017 17:54:39
Haller would surely cost more than that? He's an excellent player wanted by Swansea, etc. If it is true, would be an excellent addition.
15 Jan 2017 18:02:31
Haller valued in excess of £6m and has no Championship experience which PL said is essential so seems highly unlikely.
15 Jan 2017 18:03:56
I totally agree Wavid if its true
15 Jan 2017 18:18:24
signing both Gallagher AND Haller would give me an orgasm, lol. In this case, there may well be a great deal of truth in the Dicko to Fulham rumour and I also fully expect Bristol City to be bidding £5m for Mason again in the coming weeks.
15 Jan 2017 18:55:20
signing Marshall tells me two obvious things: 1. Iorfa will depart to West Ham, and 2. Coady may be going back up North to Newcastle. Both are valued at over £4m.
15 Jan 2017 22:44:46
Marshall wants to leave because he keeps getting played at RB. He is a winger so why would he want to play a position he hates at another club?
15 Jan 2017 23:43:06
We got no chance with haller
16 Jan 2017 09:35:09
You meant £4 for Coady surely Wavid. No way would Benitez be interested in him unless he has a brain transplant!
16 Jan 2017 15:34:42
sebastien haller goal machine! but would cost 10 mil, no chance in my view.
15 Jan 2017 11:01:57
Hearing we've made an improved bid of £1.25m for Marshall.
15 Jan 2017 15:13:27
Should get him now
14 Jan 2017 16:43:40
No Williamson? Not injured I hope.
15 Jan 2017 08:24:15
Can anybody confirm that the new hull city manager marco silva is the same manager that we wanted before appointing zenga and prior 2 lambert
15 Jan 2017 08:40:55
Yes, Marco Silva is the same one that wouldn't come to Wolves. He looks to have captured that 'new manager bounce' at Hull. I'd like to see them claw their way out of trouble at the expense of Crystal Palace or West Ham.
15 Jan 2017 08:48:23
Yes it is, ex Olympiakos boss
15 Jan 2017 13:19:29
Was second choice after guy who took over Spanish national side. Didn't, t speak any English at that point but started lessons to be better placed if English opportunity arose in future. Could hav me got him after Zenga but we chose to go the Championship experience route.
Will do a really good job at Hull and probably keep them up. Be interesting to see how he does compared to English route Sam Allardyce, who has probably got a better squad at Crystal Palace than Silva has at Hull.
15 Jan 2017 16:34:21
Silva has only signed a contract until the end of the season is my understanding. 👍😉
15 Jan 2017 16:34:45
At Hull that is! 😉
13 Jan 2017 22:49:10
Hang on a minute I don't know how bad or good this new guy is but my issue is we have to trim our squad because it's too big and if any players were going to be signed it would be to go straight into the first team squad. these are words straight from Lamberts mouth.
Come on. what's going on!
14 Jan 2017 00:53:09
Borthwick Jackson and Ola John have both left or are due to go imminently. I personally don't see what Duckens Nazon will bring to the team as his stats aren't particularly good. For him to go into the U23 squad is perplexing. Mind you that's probably the reason I'm not a football manager. Hopefully Lambert knows something that the stats are hiding.
14 Jan 2017 09:00:08
Lambert definitely hasn't had a say about Duckens or whatever his name is. Don't be surprised if he's not Dicko's replacement. Today Mighty Wolves 2 villa 1 👍
14 Jan 2017 09:04:19
Calm down Tim, it's a 6 month contract. They have seen some good points like strength and speed and have decided worth persevering with in training to try and improve him. Worth a shout as won't affect the real issues financially
14 Jan 2017 09:09:30
Funny how this Nazon suddenly turned up the day Mendes flew to the Far East to sort out the Chinese Costa deal. He was no doubt getting around some weird tax law by offloading a crap eastern player to us in return of a favour with the Costa deal, or similar.
14 Jan 2017 09:10:36
We have taken 2 forwards from the u23 squad in bright and ronan. It would make sense to bring in a forward until the end of the season so that the squad isn't short. Lambert is still looking at moving players out so be patient
14 Jan 2017 09:16:52
I'm also guessing Bristol City will bid for Mason again this window (£5m), Newcastle will bid for Coady (5m) and West Ham with Iorfa (£5m) . Don't be surprised to see them go.
14 Jan 2017 09:50:42
Wavidsmith, when did Mendes fly out to China then? I'd use another airline if I was him because Nazon has been training with the team for just over 2 weeks. I hear you can get to China in about 10 hours nowadays.
14 Jan 2017 10:40:12
Mendes is in China sorting Costa's move from Chelsea - 100%.
14 Jan 2017 11:34:18
Calm down. Duckens is a red herring. He's not the top striker we need, not meant to be, and this won't stop us signing someone else.
Duckens going into the Under 23s indicates we are having a look at him. If he can't break through into the first team, we will release him in May. His stats aren't good but nor were Steve Bull's when we signed him.
14 Jan 2017 12:33:47
All I was trying to say was that whenever Mendes has his finger in a pie (and I guarantee that the Costa / Chinese link has secretly been brewing for way longer than 2 days), a lot of weird things occur from the East (as he tries to fiddle the books, lol) .
Nazon has definitely come about from Mendes negotiating heavily with the new Chinese Super League who are pulling in players from the Middle East, etc. Why would Lambert scout a player from India?
14 Jan 2017 13:02:53
Mendes spends his life on the phone. My own take is that he sorted Nazon to come over last month as his eyes have been lighting up over the Costa, and other multi million pound deals, coming to fruition.
The saddest part is that an agent's job was always to look after the welfare of their client, but now they actually try to unsettle them for their own gain. Needless to say Costa won't care when he's on £500K after tax a week, lol.
14 Jan 2017 13:27:12
Thelwell was scouting the COPA America tournament where Haiti were playing. Nazon scored 2 goals for Haiti in this tournament I have read. So this signing has came from Thelwell
14 Jan 2017 15:01:54
Either way, I can't see it being a PL choice.
14 Jan 2017 15:45:48
Don't know why people are jumping to conclusions based on Mendes being in China. He probably is, but Nazon has never played in China and has no links to Chinese football, he played in the Indian league.
We've signed him on an initial 5 month contract where he will go into the U23s on a recommendation from our scouts. If he's any good and what the scouts have seen materialises, we have a further 1 year option. We've taken him on a free and will be paying I would imagine, not a huge sum for his wages.
Stop looking for conspiracy, we've signed unknown players before e.g. Kightly etc and some will work out and some will not.
13 Jan 2017 19:23:21
wolves to lose 4 - 1
unexpected signing due next week I think
the realist is our dream manager.
13 Jan 2017 22:48:48
Na don't think we will lose be draw 1-1 more likely
13 Jan 2017 17:08:37
Duckens Nazon signs till the end of the season like I told you all ;)
13 Jan 2017 17:17:32
Wow a player, business all done then.
13 Jan 2017 17:19:52
hi guys new to the site always been a wolves fan and I will till I die, is this guy any good felix? seems a bit of a punt in my eyes hope to be wrong though
13 Jan 2017 17:36:39
Well done Felix. No the big decision is will his nickname be Daffy or Donald?
13 Jan 2017 17:45:20
Straight into U23 s wow what a scoop that was!?
13 Jan 2017 18:03:53
Hardly news though Felix considering he's been training with us for the last 2 weeks.
13 Jan 2017 18:53:04
Dont think he is a first team player. i'm a bit confused by this signing even though he is going into the u23 squad. What will that do for morale of the plyers who have come through the ranks?
13 Jan 2017 18:54:17
Agree with clive what a geat bit of buisness! no goals coming from strikers so we sign a guy who has scored 2 in 13 and goes straight in to the under 23 squad hope i'm wrong but looks a rubbish deal to me
13 Jan 2017 19:12:55
so we replace Gladon with someone who has even worse stats, lols. Could be another Benteke, or, most likely, another Gladon.
13 Jan 2017 19:29:05
Free, 6 month contract only 22. It's basically a 6 month trial to run the rule over him. Seems like a common sense bit of business to me
13 Jan 2017 20:54:17
My comment wasn't meant to be seen as slagging the guy off. It's just footballers tend to have a nickname. I ain't got a clue whether he's good or not. Time will tell. Let's hope he gets in the first team and bangs in 15 goals by the end of the season.
13 Jan 2017 23:08:33
The guy is free and probs low wages so why not take a punt? He has experience too . . in the Indian league yes there is one!
14 Jan 2017 11:54:56
Must be hot stuff if he came from India
