Rumours are Grabban as a striker.

Not sure what I feel on this one.

1) Would supplement the squad till the end of the season and take pressure off Leo.
2) Could sell him in summer at a profit if we get promotion to Championship team.
3) Not premiership quality.

I'd take him, let's make sure we get over the finishing line as soon as possible, givin the board and management as much time as poss to plan for the Premier league 2018/ 19 season! 👍.

If it’s Grabban it can only be short term as he has a zero record of goals in the prem. I’ve got to say it just seems out of place with what Nuno appears to have been bringing in so far?! ⚽️😉👍.

So was Bennett, and now he's a regular. Have to say I'm surprised though.

To be fair, Grabban has only played 16 games in the Premier League and most of them were as a sub. Can't really say if he can do it at that level if not been given a chance. If Nuno decides he wants to sign him if not then we let Nuno carry on doing what's he's doing an we get behind whoever wears the famous old gold week after week.

Just a bit of info.
Wood 27 goals
Abraham 23
Kodija 19
Kermorgant 18
Jerome 16
Assombalonga 14
I would imagine Bonatini if selected will get 14-18 goals this season-he seems a good finisher from the very limited
time I've seen him play (he might get 30.)
Costa and Cav should get 20 between them.
Jota 6-10.
Centre halves 10 between them.
Wing backs 6/ 7.
Subs and other midfielders 15-20
That's around 70 goals or 1.5 a game. if we don't concede we'll win more than we lose.
A "20 goal a season striker" isn't essential in my opinion the way we play.

Sorry Edthewolf1.
It's just seems that those estimates will work if they are at the maximum of the estimates. I don't think they will all finish with those numbers it's just a bit dreamy. Plus I don't trust our youngsters scoring 5-10 goals between (I can see Roman, bright scoring that many) when more experienced players get injuries. Centre halves won't get 10 and subs won't get 15-20 just my opinion though. The stats would confirm my view though I expect.

Fair enough Jaz we got the three points which is all that matters. However we did make 3 goal line clearances it could have easily been a draw or worse. I wasn’t moaning at Nuno philosophy either it is exciting to watch but in the big games coming up it may be worth a thought of how we regain control of possession. As with possession and in shape we are unstoppable. 1 touch passes and goals are the product of this. As highlighted with goals v Sheffield Utd, Leeds, Brentford etc. It was a comment of thought of how we can regain control and possible score more by having the ball. Rather than playing expansive do or die football that nearly cost us points. And as I stated in the previous post we conceded in 51st minute if we had regained control for 10 minutes the game could have been ours in a more reassuring manner. UTW.

Yesterday was the weakness of Nuno philosophy shown in front of a packed Molineux.

First half they started first 10 minutes slow. Then they scored a goal from a cracking ball into the box. Then we played great football and scored another.

The issue was from the start though the two wing backs were pressed by the qpr extra man in midfield or perch for qpr at rwb or Robinson at LWB. Perch was run ragged by Jota and Caveleiro. Which meant he was replaced before half time.

After the break Holloway played a similar formation to wolves. Pressing the wing backs, N’diaye And boly who had caused chaos in the 1st half. This allowed them to win the ball in the wolves half and have more possession in dangerous areas. I think we did the right thing bringing Afobe and Gibbs white on when we did. But maybe we should have changed our formation after the goal was conceded. To 4-5-1 not for the rest of the game but to restore stability and structure in our play. The expansive game is fun until your on the wrong side of the result. UTW.

Spot on bullysboy.

I respected Nuno for that decision as well.

The pack is raring for the run in now! Let’s get behind them everywhere we play! WAW.

Patience. I truly believe this will help all the players in an attacking sense. It takes the pressure from them (Jota, bonatini and Costa) with the addition of Afobe with swagger then it could be interesting. There are many games where I have thought Afobe could do something in games this season. Either hold the ball up, run at a defender or play a team mate in. Let’s hope he can and everyone can benefit from it!

I agree with all your points bullyboy.
But for that loan/ 10m I think it is worth the punt.
If Leo, Cav or Jota got injured we’d Start to look over our shoulder. 25 points are needed to guarantee automatic which everyone expects and hopes for. 18 draws isn’t enough. And I expect the odd loss along the way. Would you trust Mir, Bright and Costa on current form to score 10 between them-I don’t but I like surprises :-)
There’s no pride to swallow on the matter this is business and benik would be an asset in the run in. WAW.
