Jose Fonte is on a free after a cancelled contract, not saying he would be my first choice but wouldn't surprise me at all if we signed him. We still need another defender, he's free with lots of Prem experience and oh yeah that most important point. he's Portuguese! C'mon Wolvesugal! ;)


1.) 17 Jul 2018 12:49:50
He’s off to Lille. Doesn’t really look like we’re after anyone at the moment.

2.) 18 Jul 2018 12:14:26
Juventus were reported as signing Ronaldo, according to Debbie that means we will sign him now!



13 Jun 2018 00:03:06
Someones got to say it so. Thank goodness Fosun found Nuno cause if we still had a Walter Zenga type in place then I can't help but feel we would have all looked at the Real news and wondered what might have been! Does make you realise how lucky we are mind cause when Lopetgui said he had numerous offers from the Prem but this job was the only club one that interested him! The lucks two fold firstly lucky to have Fosun cause they MUST be serious with mangers of that calibre saying that but also lucky to have got Nuno! When you read Lops words ya realise Nuno almost certainly had some big offers too but was also sold the Fosun 'dream'! Happy days to be a Wolves fan! COYW ;)


1.) 13 Jun 2018 07:16:17
Spot on mate. I think we have been fortunate to be blessed with Nuno. Nuno is a wolf!

2.) 13 Jun 2018 12:38:30
W88 are our new sponsorship over 2 years, on WWF website.



17 Apr 2018 00:28:51
Random thought but I do hope they give Danny the Captains armband and a start for the last home game. let's be honest I love the guy but would be AMAZED if he survives the cull (suspect he will be loaned first to ease the blow for him) . Just think the man deserves a nice last day at the Mol considering all he's been through/ done for the club!

He could have easily jumped ship when we dropped to League One, especially after being ignored for years! But he's never looked anything but committed to the club and took the armband well for what was a fairly inexperienced player (at the time) . Sadly I doubt he's up to it next year but he's one of our own and deserves a TOP send off if that is the case! COYW ;)


1.) 17 Apr 2018 09:34:38
Bang on bullysboy.

2.) 17 Apr 2018 10:02:25
we would not be were we are if danny started every game fact. you say jump ship but tell me what team ever put a bid in?

3.) 17 Apr 2018 10:39:55
Total respect for Danny - but we can't be sentimental. He's Wolves through and through. I think he needs to play regular football, he has looked rusty when he does play - loan to a top Championship team would be good for him.

4.) 17 Apr 2018 14:02:04
I can see him going to another Midlands club. Or Sheffield Wednesday, who took to him a few years ago on loan.

Yes, hard to see how he will succeed in the Premier when he can't get in to our Championship 11.

5.) 17 Apr 2018 18:46:28
Dappa- I am a little confused by your post so let's go trough a few things. Firstly writing an opinion or conjecture and adding the word FACT before or after it does not make it a fact. I understand why you might make that mistake as most news reports these days do the same thing but it does not make it so.
So let's look at some FACTS shall we for Danny Batth: been at the club for 12 years, captaining both youth and first team during that period. In this time he has made 204 apps, notably here not missing a single game when we SMASHED the points record in League one, also a fact!
Now as for the bids from other clubs again you seem to be missing a crucial point here, twice he has had his contract wound down so at both points could have left on a free! Granted its just an opinion (not a fact as none of us know the lad) but I'm pretty sure had he left on a free he would have found a decent club/ wage (the second time he could have gone on a free Celtic were tied with him and he could have easily done a 'Lee Naylor') .
All that aside you seem to be missing my point here, I think the guy is a decent Champ defender which is why I suspect he will go so I am hardly saying let's keep him. What I am saying is if he is to go, then surely a guy whos played over 200 games for the club and captained it too boot deserves some respect/ gesture?! I know the futures bight and all that but let's try not too forget where we came from and who we are eh! Dannys a wolf and if he's leaving the pack then let's given him the credit owed, don't see why that should be a problem? ;)

6.) 17 Apr 2018 20:13:52
Captain Chaos captain and start in last match DELUDED!

7.) 17 Apr 2018 21:58:21
its dappa with no cap haha. behave about danny my word ' we smashed div 1 because of the strike force griff dicko henry ect even jack price looked good in div 1 'plus are great fans 9k away. he mite be wolves lad and I love that but come on bud he's a basic center half for the fizzy pop. you should join the e&s and tim FACT.

8.) 17 Apr 2018 23:45:42
Haha, thing is dappa still you can't give a good reason not to give the lad a bit of respect! And still I don't really get why you have a problem tipping ya hat to a lad who's been here a fair while?! Also you are wrong yet again regarding the team in League One, I mean Griff scored 12 goals and left in Jan but yeah fella it was all him that got us promoted (rather than a club captain that didn't miss a game)! And no one said he wasn't a basic centre half, so cause of that he doesn't deserve some credit then after 200 apps? I mean let's be honest whole team was basic two seasons a go, not sure how that's on them mind?! My word some on here have a short memory!

As for Wolf you think Nunos deluded I'm guessing then cause last time I checked Danny has been club captain all season and already started a few games a long the way! But still fella least you construct a well thought out point eh, rather than just childish point scoring!

You two were probably part of the crowd that booed Karl Henry when he came back, with home fans like that who needs the Albion eh?! Still I'm sure you've both given as much for the club as those two mind, I mean after all you do both put up the odd nonsensical posts up on a forum. its a shame that I'm fresh out of medals! Deluded indeed FACT- LMAO ;)

9.) 18 Apr 2018 09:57:34
ive been about abit bud . that long i'd even have eric young over danny . now when I say I don't think danny is the best' now your tryin to bring me down about another players from the past. i'm look to the future not back' stop trying to get a response off guys 😂.

10.) 18 Apr 2018 15:32:06
He’ll get the send off he deserves as he’ll be the one who lifts the trophy after all he is the club captain.

11.) 18 Apr 2018 17:50:02
hope he does buddy with carl right by him that will be class.

12.) 18 Apr 2018 21:17:17
Bullysboy thank you for your long winded reply I'm writing this from abroad so sorry for the delay don't blame it's HMS Armed Forces that's to blame i'm COVERING YOUR BACK WHILST YOU SLEEP SON!

13.) 19 Apr 2018 08:37:26
does he boo henry now a haha.



04 Apr 2018 10:59:02
I have to ask the question. are peeps still desperate for us to sign Benik at the end of the season? Still looks a shadow of the player we sold to me. Really thought he would shine by coming back to the Champ but for me I'm just not seeing it! Thoughts?


1.) 04 Apr 2018 11:59:08
I agree looked average. I Think he knows he is not going to be signed,

2.) 04 Apr 2018 12:53:54
Not good enough by the looks of things. pity, all concerned should move on.

3.) 04 Apr 2018 13:06:16
I wouldn't mind Afobe signing full time. I'm sure that given a pre season with any other new signings we make Will benefit him. We also need another striker too. Someone like Charlie Austin if Southampton go down or Danny Ings. I'd also like to see us make a move for Fraser Forster as he doesn't seem to get a look in nowadays at Southampton.

4.) 04 Apr 2018 13:29:53
I don’t think that afobe is really what nuno wants. He remains to static and always tries to play off the last man. His link up play is often poor. Last night he simplied didn’t move around enough to create space.
When we are a premier league club I suspect that Fosun will want a bigger name up front and probably sign Leo as back up.

5.) 04 Apr 2018 14:03:09
52, I agree with you in general but if Afobe can pick up say 6 goals over the remaining games then he may get signed. He needs to prove himself as an impact player.

6.) 04 Apr 2018 14:22:37
That's exactly it, Afobe isn't what Nuno wants he is not a Nuno type player which is fair enough but a petty he couldn't of had more game time to prove he can still do it but then again can we afford to try things out this late in the season.
I will be surprised if Afobe gets the opportunity to sign full time.
I was happy to see him sign in January without thinking if he would fit our new system. Least one thing though he doesn't need a second invite to shoot.

7.) 04 Apr 2018 15:38:41
He's been OK. If we're serious about a long stint in the PL we probably need someone better, though. Nuno will have his own ideas. He got Coady right when we said he wasn't good enough.

8.) 04 Apr 2018 18:39:42
I also think Fabio Coentrao will be joining us in the summer. Free agent, bags of experience, Mendes client and still young enough (30) to make a difference.

9.) 04 Apr 2018 18:43:19
afobe went missing at boro and last night seemed off the pace looks more like the player we sold than the player that lit up the championship / on another note we will have to sign at least 5 or six players to stay up next season I can only name 3 that are definitely good enough at the moment (boly/ neves/ jiota) looking forward to seeing who umr mendes can find us!

10.) 04 Apr 2018 23:14:37
I find it strange when comments of not good enough and average are used for a man who has only started 3 games yet scored 3 goals in those games. The problem is Nuno never wanted him and hasn't utilised him enough from the start. 3 wingers doesn't work and Bonatini is done for this season.

11.) 05 Apr 2018 00:33:35
A fluid front 3 doesn’t work. have you seen Spain play a game lately?

12.) 05 Apr 2018 09:22:48
I agree we haven't seen enough of Afobe and he has good and bad games like all players I don't know why Bonatini has lost his spark either.

13.) 05 Apr 2018 09:57:21
Mutiny, didn't realise you wouldn't understand that my comments are relating to the Wolves ream only being as we are on a Wolves rumour site. To bring up a national team with the quality of Spain in a conversation about Wolves is very naive.

14.) 05 Apr 2018 11:24:55
I think Afobe has been alright, mainly when neves is playing without him, he looks isolated. It shows how much we need another player like neves in our midfield, for me I feel like Saiss is a holding midfielder, who just likes to play deep, and N’Diaye is more of a attacking midfielder, who likes to get in the box! I personally would take Afobe over Bonatini because Afobe is something different, a change of tactics that we have been screaming for over the past couple of months! I think that signings wise, we don’t need as many players as people think. Only another RWB, Striker and Midfielder come to mind. What you have to remember is that we still have Hause who needs to be played more. Also I still wanna see what Phil Ofosu-Ayeh is like before judging him!

15.) 05 Apr 2018 15:14:42

Any signing should bring improvement and/ or a dimension to add to the team, that should play in the Premier League. If we were to stay in the Championship then maybe.

Maybe he has been unlucky with our expectation and style.

16.) 08 Apr 2018 21:31:45
I don’t think that Nuno will b signing Afobe or bonatini just not good enough bonatini scored 12 goals earlier in the season but missed just as many some of them easy chances wol and Nuno will b aiming much higher.

17.) 09 Apr 2018 09:48:01
Amid the great performances against Cardiff, I thought Afobe did well. He tracked back and linked up. Good all round from him. His job was to blunt the physical stuff from the Cloggers early on. This allowed Costa and Cav to come on later to open up Cardiff. Bonatini was more anonymous and shame he didn't convert from that tight angle, but credit for getting the chance. Of the two I think Afobe will stay.

18.) 09 Apr 2018 19:32:48
Jas - Don't get me wrong, I think Charlie Austin and Danny Ings are reasonably good footballers but I'm not sure if you realise just how bonkers Fosun are going to go with the chequebook this summer. I honestly believe that the likes of that pair would be lucky to be regulars on our subs bench let alone anything else. Nuno will bring 5 or 6 genuinely top class performers - Far superior to Austin and Ings. With all due respect.



06 Feb 2018 00:55:41
Ya have to wonder what was going through Beniks mind watching that first half on Sat. Mostly I think it would of been along the lines of 'Is this definitely Wolves because it ain't the Wolves I remember! ' and he wouldn't be wrong ;)

We were immense and off that display Benik could be waiting a few more weeks for a start cause who could you drop from our AWESOME 'Portuguese men of war'front line?! Even Costa looks like he's starting to find his old mojo, some filthy footwork in the corners! Then Gibbs comes on and even he gets in on the act by walking past defenders and some tidy passing to boot! Just SO much to be excited about in this team I love it!

Special credit to Nuno (I mean not just for being Nuno of course;) but also for bringing Leo on before Benik. Would have been SO easy to appease the crowd and bring Benik on first but Leo has earned that small token of respect. Pretty much says everything about Nunos man management skills, great times to be a Wolves fan! COYW ;)


1.) 06 Feb 2018 08:17:29
I haven't posted since Saturdays awesome display, all I can do is echo fellow posters posts! 👍Roll on Saturday👊.

2.) 06 Feb 2018 12:11:09
I agree Bullysboy Afobe has to wait his turn it will come perhaps if one of the first choice front three is injured also Saiss has a battle to depose Alfred now.

3.) 06 Feb 2018 12:29:03
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.

4.) 06 Feb 2018 14:38:13
Agreed with that BullysBoy. It's a vastly different team to the one Afobe left. He has no divine right to a hero's welcome back. Nuno handled it just right, made him wait his turn. Afobe now knows he must fight tooth and nail for a smidgen of a chance in this team. What a difference!

5.) 06 Feb 2018 14:39:04
Afobe might even find it as difficult to get a game at Wolves as he did at Bournemouth.

6.) 06 Feb 2018 18:02:59
Agree Deep, its an insurance policy in case of injuries loss of form etc, as far as I am concerned. Great signing by Nuno and the board!

7.) 06 Feb 2018 19:14:13
Window- Hadn't thought of that one fella but your not wrong ya know, Saiss will have to work darn hard for his place because two of our best performances now have come since N'Diayes been in! I like Saiss and realise that he's technically better BUT there's solid/ won't get past me quality to N'Diaye which really helps. Hope we sign him up long term cause think he will be worth his weight in gold next season (and he's a big unit;)! Especially come the last 20 mins when trying to hold a lead in the Prem!
Deep- I also agree I almost wrote something along the same lines of having more chance of a game at Bournemouth but didn't want to seem negative on him. But ya not wrong there either, between Jota playing like that and Leos previous this season Benik is somehow third choice! Who could of imagined that a few seasons back, definitely not me! Happy Days! COYW ;)

8.) 06 Feb 2018 19:33:43
Ya know Window you've got me thinking on that now, because a large part of the reason we've got back on track is because Neves has found his magical form again. Are looking at our own Lampard/ Gerrard issue (for next season) because with N'Diaye playing it means Rueben doesn't have to do as much of the dirty work and can get forward a bit more to release that deadly right foot like at the wkend! Still good problems to be having eh! COYW ;)

9.) 07 Feb 2018 17:06:55
I like Saiss too, and never much understood why Lambert didn't give him game time. Allegedly he got miffed at Saiss linking up with his national team but I'm sure that's not all of it, if any of it.

Someone did a "Neves and N'Daiye" chant earlier in the season. These two could be our unlikely answer to Xavi and Iniesta. Someone maybe said that too.

10.) 07 Feb 2018 21:07:09
Wolves owner held a meeting with the PM in China.

11.) 08 Feb 2018 08:14:24
Let’s all just wish Benik Afobe all the best, support and encourage him to see if we can help get the best from him. I’ve seen him play several times over the last two years including the last time he played at the vitality! He seemed lost to me! Eddie H never played to his strengths and he usually came on for the last 20 mins as a sub.

So let’s all just get behind him and see if we can help him fit in, and get his Mojo back. If he can he will be an asset for us. ⚽️😉👍.




BullysBoy's banter posts with other poster's replies to BullysBoy's banter posts


21 May 2018 23:55:51
Timmy - Again the opinions on here regarding a top six finish seem at best confused! So firstly the Thelwell 'interview' you are referring to (guessing it was the Molmix one) was entirely unofficial and also unaccredited by Thelwell. Sure its all legit but just saying we might want to take there 'paraphrasing' with a decent does of salt here.

Besides which I don't get your actual point because first its we should be top six cause Thelwell said we will compete with Spurs, who by the way finished third so surely that means we'll be top four then?!

Next part I'm confused by is your assumption that Thelwell meant compete with Spurs THIS season (which by the way on the face of it is ridiculous! ) . Because the Spurs line was a flippant comment made when being asked about player recruitment so don't think we should be seeing that as a target. I would also point out that I am assuming you didn't actually read the full interview because if you did you would have clearly seen the line: "It is about being a successful Premier League team and winning things-OVER TIME"!

Look I've said it on here before and starting to get the feeling this is going to be a regular bug bear for me on here; Fosun no doubt WILL turn this club into a top end club but it all takes time! Its taken Spurs about a decade a 5/6 managers to get regular top four finishes because nothing comes easy in the Prem! NO ONE is walking into the top six of that league, maybe on a one off season like Burnley but in terms of regular placement it takes time, always has always will. Ambitions fine but without realism its just becomes a make believe stick to beat the club with as soon as times get tough! let's just enjoy the ride and see how things go without the arbitrary focus on league positions which we have NO right to expect until its earned! Just a thought COYW ;)


1.) 22 May 2018 06:50:37
bullyboy you was hopin for play off I bet mate. have faith.

2.) 22 May 2018 10:53:21
Good post Bully, and totally agree we will get there but will take time. The top 6 have an income far greater than ours and to just hold the gap on squad values we need to strengthen by 150m plus per season.

3.) 22 May 2018 11:27:30
For top 10 finish I think the following recruitment is required (assuming Jota, Afobe, Vinegre stay) :

1. Goalie (Ruddy as No.2)
2. Right wing back (cover for Doc)
2. Left Sided centre back (Boly moved to right since he's right footed)
3. Sweeper as back up to Coady (although Saiss plays there for Morocco)
4. Attacking midfielder
5. Striker

c 200 million right there.
All of the above need to be proven in top flight football.

4.) 22 May 2018 17:12:20
Hey Dappa, I got plenty of faith cheers fella what does seem to be lacking round here is a bit of reality or humility! Didn't make a prediction before the last season as I don't really see the point, still don't to be honest either the teams playing well or it ain't! Surprised your predictions were so lofty last season considering you think we have a captain who isn't up to competing in the Champ?! Besides why would I need to make um when yours are so solid, this time last season you were telling everyone how Marco Silva had already signed a contract and was going to lead us to glory! ;-O.

5.) 22 May 2018 18:12:02
Oh, I get it. It's fake news unless you want it to be real. Donald. Is that you?
Listen. If you really don't believe they are going for as high as they can, I don't really care. I have been reading enough to conclude that they will and we will see soon enough with who they bring in.
I guess if you don't read things, then they can't be mentioned or brought into consideration when I make my opinion.
Please submit a list of articles you have read so I know what is allowed as a reference.

6.) 22 May 2018 18:48:57
Haha, oh Timmy you poor confused thing! I was actually making the point that if its not an official club source then tread carefully. If you truly understood the political land scape you would also understand that in this scenario you would be Donald, ah the irony! No point in references fella as you are clearly confused with how those work as well.

But at least now I get it, you clearly didn't read Thelwells interview at all. Just picked up the thread were someone mentioned Spurs and ran with it, haha well good luck with that level of background reading!

And the cherry on the cake, now I really have heard it all! Timmy please do tell me which team this season (in the world) isn't trying to 'go for as high as they can'?! Pretty sure Brom didn't start the season saying let's see if we can push for 20th this year! Just hilarious all round really!

Tell ya what fella I'll give you one more chance to make a salient point just tell me this how many teams have come up to the Prem and consistently established in the top six in there first three seasons there? Not even City did that, still what do they know about developing a top level team compared to a man that's read a few random posts on a forum?! Just too funny! ;)

7.) 22 May 2018 19:44:24
Anythings possible BullysBoy, we could very well over achieve? I think 7th is possible and top 10 for definite.

8.) 22 May 2018 20:10:27
Paul- Couldn't agree more fella, at NO point have I said its not possible! Just not the given that some are saying, no one gets to expect the Prem to bow to them! Pretty much EVERY team there is capable of breaking into the top 6 as has been show, that is a long stretch mind from actually owning and developing a team that is consistently there on merit! Which we'll get too no doubt but it ain't all going to be the weekly dominance we've enjoyed this season when we get to the Prem!
Look we've had a blinding season but reality is we have a squad of players who have virtually no Prem experience (bar a couple of players a good while back) . Sure we'll be up to it when it comes round but let's just give them room to breath and adjust is all; rather than crushing them with unrealistic expectation!

9.) 23 May 2018 09:26:59
Imo fosun thelwell know exactly what to say to get fans excited for nxt season even though bullysboy has pointed out in great depth they haven't said what some fans are saying they knew that what they're saying will be taken differen by a lot of fans sorry about my grammer i'm just a football wolves fan.

10.) 23 May 2018 09:35:35
I prefer Nuno's attitude he is not aiming for anything only to achieve as best he can it has worked so far and we are not going to spend £200m this summer Boly £10m gives you an idea of where we are at one or two over £20m at best.

11.) 23 May 2018 12:32:21
I don't think you can judge from Boly's fee where we are or how much we will spend. This deal was agreed last year as we had an option to buy at a set price, likewise with Jota. Both were outstanding last year and are good buys.
I do agree we won't spend £200m but there is the loan market or even out of contract players to consider.
Money is not everything but judging by the top 6 it does help, using transfermarkt for squad values the top 6 are valued between £450/ 750m approx, our squad value not counting loan players is under £50m with Boly and Jota £75m.

12.) 23 May 2018 12:33:30
Good post WindowWolf respect your opinion like everyone elses.
For me I like fans dreams of how we will get on in the prem nxt season whether they are realistic or not. its the best time to be a wolves fan. the season just gone exceeded all expectations so who's to say nxt season won't be the same all be it 100 times more difficult in the prem than the championship.
Roll on nxt season COYW.

13.) 23 May 2018 19:45:31
I realize that Thelwell, or maybe Dalrymple, were being a little ambitious saying we are going after spurs next season and that is why I said 6th.
Is it really unrealistic? Do you think it is impossible to buy enough quality players to go from a team that some are saying would be a mid-table team with last season's players to a top six team?
Do you think the players that are being mentioned would not be enough of an upgrade to move the team forward from mid table to sixth?
How much money do you think would need to be spent to get them to a sixth place contender?

14.) 23 May 2018 22:05:00
Here is roughly how much Tottenham spent on their staring 11. Not sure how much they spent after the article was published. So why is it so impossible for Wolves to do the same thing?


15.) 23 May 2018 22:38:19
Hey Timmy, well that's an entirely different matter and I reckon with the phrasing you have there me and you may just find a middle ground! (heaven forbid;)
For me next season then I would have to say yes it is unrealistic but hey I have been wrong so many times before that as I mentioned to Dappa I don't even do predictions much anymore. And yes I do think some of the players mentioned would be good enough to get us there, problem is here some of the players mentioned have been RIDICULOUS! Silly forum links like Rashford, Martial or Donnerauma which have been suggested and not one would genuinely sign for a freshly promoted team, never happening! Then you have your realistic targets but only under the right circumstances. Take Talisca now we'd all love to get him and after the work Mendes did with Neves you would have to say that's not impossible. However it only becomes impossible if just ONE of the other teams tied is interested (as they were mostly Champs League teams) .
So who knows eh, time will tell. As I've said before please don't think I am against the ambition, I would LOVE to be wrong and for us to smash our way straight into Europe! To be honest I just remember you posting a few days before 'Top 6 by Xmas or Nuno out' now I suspect you were joking/ on the wind up but that's the only reason I am SO over the top on this argument. Don't want to see us ruin a good thing by trying to jump the cue. We will get there, I don't doubt that part so let's just agree to enjoy the ride COYW ;)

Also Timmy I have to say that having read the full interview I do feel you have (unknowingly) missed the point being made when Thelwell mentioned Spurs. I don't think he meant so much as challenging Spurs out right, I think he meant more a similar model to there's to run a high end football club (so that in the long term we will be a challenge to their recruitment) . As I say when he mentioned them it was during a player retention/ recruitment question and one thing you can't fault Spurs on is there transfer policy.
I think what he was actually saying is that in a few years time when the next Ali comes round we should be challenging them for him. Not trying to score points here just saying that I think you (and many others on Molmix) may have taken the Spurs reference slightly out of its intended context.

Timmy- (in response to your latest post, waiting for mine to land;) Its not impossible, but the thing that article doesn't account for is time! Half of those players signed for Spurs when young and unknown then took YEARS to blossom and it will be the same for us! The numbers don't tell the full story, take a look at when each joined the club and you will realise that what Spurs are reaping right now is the rewards of around a decades worth of graft in terms of both recruitment and coaching! So yeah its entirely possible (if not likely) we could do the same thing. So the only we are debating here is the time it is likely to take! Well time will of course tell, as I say I do of course hope I am wrong and you are right. Sadly I suspect not COYW ;)

How stupid will the EFL look giving out the manager award this early IF Cardiff drop off the map and Millwall go up in the playoffs?! So bizarre giving it out SO early, nothings been achieved yet! Would LOVE it if that happened! ;)

Let’s hope it’s the start of the curse of the manager of the season award . How I would like it to play out is Cardiff play millwall in the play offs and Millwall Go through to the final . To meet Derby.

3.) 11 Apr 2018 17:21:59
. who will have beaten Villa, presumably. I don't think Villa can reasonably hope to get automatic promotion now, with Fulham doing so well.



06 Nov 2017 21:38:59
Sorry Turu couldn’t resist…. still think McD’s better than Saiss?! Saiss scored a blinding header against TWO players which he had NO right to win, meanwhile McD skyed an open goal? Sorry fella last time I promise but just had to ask ;)

Where you been Bullysboy?

Was expecting a comment from you straight after the game to be honest hahahaha!

I had humble pie and mash for tea that night after the game!

Gotta say that I may have been blinded by the fact that he was a decent player in a very average team at that time. We are now 2,3,4 times the team that was. UTW.

2.) 07 Nov 2017 20:49:46
Turu- fair play fella it takes a big man and all that! I did have a wry smile to myself thinking on it after the game I must admit. Think your also absolutely on the money as well, KMac did indeed look good/ stand out because back then the midfield he played in had very little REAL quality. Agree on both counts as well because we really are at least twice the team these days! Happy days to be a wolf…COYW ;)



18 Oct 2017 18:24:06
Ridiculous comment Jetski, guessing it’s a fake account?! Cause even if you were serious look at the other factors…we had a highest attendance since 1981 for a game which had a KO at 5:30 AND was being shown on Sky! When you consider that then it’s a stonking turnout! Also Turu have to go back to our Saiss v KMac argument and I’m sorry but your just wrong my friend!

You said Saiss is the definition of inconsistent, which player have you been watching this season?! Maybe last season under poor management and being played in the wrong role but this season he’s hardly put a foot wrong, started more games than most to boot and Nuno ain’t no fool!

Also KMac ain’t that good, this is the same player that isn’t able to get into his national team despite it being a VERY average midfield?! Whereas Saiss on the other hand is ever present in the Morroco team, pretty well respected there to. Mostly because he’s VERY consistent for them that’s despite being played out of position at CB!

All opinions are equal and all that but Saiss is clearly a better all round player, mostly because unlike KMac he can actually tackle and isn’t scared to head the ball! Lucky for us eh, he was genuinely excellent against Villa. Just sat in and did the dirty work and laid it off to Neves to spread…just what we needed.

Tell you who else impressed me was Miranda, have been a bit unsure in previous games that he was up to the physical side of this league. Well he showed last week that he absolutely is, he bossed Kodija and Adomah which is no easy feat.

Walked the line between physical and clean as well which wasn’t easy in that game. Overall guys I’m happier than a pig in a WBA shirt…. COYW! ;-)


1.) 18 Oct 2017 20:36:21
Still stand by what I said bullysboy sorry.

Sais was awsome against the villa. there's no doubt that if he played anywhere near that each week he’d be dubbed one of the best mids outside the prem. my opinion was based on what I saw last season and the 4 games I've seen him this season. When he’s on it he’s hot, I just feel he loses his concentration way to much in games. i'm hoping this might be a turning point (in my view) to his wolves career and nuno has got his head (saiss) where it needs to be.

I felt a bit emotional watching that performance against the villa. Never seen a wolves come anywhere near a performance like that. Its just great to see a team that is so confident and comfortable on the ball. Getting gooses thinking about it now. Great time to be a wolves fan!

2.) 18 Oct 2017 23:59:53
Turu, fair enough fella I do hope you are right and he goes on to make that midfield his own along with Rueben. In fairness I really do think he was hampered last season as Zenga tried to play him as a creative player then Lambert didn’t really seem to know where to play him either. Think between the quality in the coach room and the extra class he now has around him he could be a real pivotal player for us, here’s to hoping. Have to agree on the other point as well, was one of the most electric atmospheres I’ve EVER seen down at the Mol for that last game! That period towards the end where they’d been well beaten and we were just pinging it round as the crowd cheered louder with each tidy pass…well like you say great times indeed! In Nuno we trust! ;)

3.) 19 Oct 2017 08:48:44
Imo saiss last season was ruined by bad management I could see his heart was not in it destroyed by the woeful lambert he was great at making passes to the opposition. as soon as lanbert was out and nuno in I thought come on saiss show us what you're really made of and he has more than I could of ever of imagined. mcdonald good top championship player at best imo once his heart is not in wolves he's a at best average player.

4.) 20 Oct 2017 14:13:00
There has been significant improvement in several players this season, Saiss for sure, plus Coady and certainly Danny B - long may it continue.



16 Aug 2017 15:31:02
Everyone on the Premiership bandwagon! ;) I am of course kidding but my word it’s getting harder with each performance not to start dreaming the dream! What’s SO exciting is not just the results but the quality of footy we seem to be playing, it’s like nothing I’ve seen us do before in decades of owning a season ticket!

The other reason its SO easy to get carried away for me is because the signings aren’t even the most exciting element, its that ONE signing that truly matters. Nuno! Sure the Wolvesugal wonder kids are great to watch don’t get me wrong (Neves goal was something else) but its all about the man pulling the strings.

Think this is an element of Fosun most of us previously over looked (myself included) because their track record had been verging on odd with manager choices, but now that we're here was it?

I heard about Lopetegui coming to the club before I’d even heard the Fosun link and that was clearly the plan i. e a top end manager (lets not forget why he didn’t come) . So when that fell through they didn’t want to rush a big contract so went for a short term wildcard Zenga.

When that went wrong they had probs written off the season so turned to the man who was about for free and with many a relegation battle on his CV just to be sure things didn’t go south! They were clearly never intending to stick with Lambert so again just another interim while they accessed the REAL options.

In steps Nuno, when you actually look at his record its INSANE that they even managed to get him but that’s clearly where Fosun were putting the time/ resources. And it seems to be working, his man management seems a different level to previous.

How many of us expected Cav to come straight back in for Bright? Would have been SO easy but Nuno see’s potential and has the backroom to help find it (blinding assist after a good game at Derby)! Oh and by the by let's not forget those wonder kids / superstars mostly came for him.

Peeps talk about Mendes influence but it wasn’t his name that Neves, Jota, Miranda and Boly dropped when they arrived…it was Nunos! I know its only three games but hell why not. IN NUNO WE TRUST! COYW.


1.) 16 Aug 2017 16:21:08
Can't agree more, after the Leicester game I said Nuno was the best acquisition we've made this season. Really happy it's going so well for him.

Exciting times for us all with 3 league wins on the bounce against some strong and fancied teams. When Costa returns we could really kick on.

All we need now is to keep our players injury free and get a quality striker. The prize for promotion is £150m, Fosun has the money to invest, may need to bend FFP rules but the right CF would almost guarantee us promotion.

2.) 16 Aug 2017 22:06:06
Nuno reminds me of mourinho but calmer and less arrogant he puts the work in and seems to go over every detail can see him being the best wolves manager of my lifetime ( I started with graham turner ) certainly playing the best football.

Get your point Neil and I would normally agree however I don't think this is a case of him not wanting us, more a case of him not wanting to leave Peps City team! As in I don't think he's been waiting on other bids more waiting on Peps decisions most likely. I suppose he must know it will probs be one of the best teams he will have a crack at in a while, can't blame a man for not wanting any regrets. Besides it does show that he's ambitious and confident in his own ability both traits that will make him perfect for Fosun era Wolves! COYW ;)

Flawed- no one has a problem with peeps saying they would like another striker, truth be told who in the league wouldn't?! What is frustrating though is the fact the the windows still open, the leagues not started but still we get this NOW NOW NOW attitude from many on here like some child in a toy shop! Laurie was VERY clear and VERY open about the transfer window before it started where he (basically) said that with a WC and new window dates it would go right to the wire and be a tough window for all the promoted clubs so tell me how exactly were you expecting things to go? I mean we were LITERALLY told this was how it would be!
The other element of this point that frustrates me Flawed is that what your are basically saying is 'well us fans chatting on a forum can see this ice berg, oh if only Nuno could see it like us seasoned pros' which frankly is an insult to the mans intelligence. So no its not heresy BUT it is VERY patronising to a man who is without doubt the best manager I have seen at the Mol in my lifetime!

Just as telling is that Boro have been bidding on Freeman from QPR who would be a natural replacement, think it won't be long now.

Stu and Jas I fully understand your frustrations, I've been feeling it a fair bit lately on here as well! Some seem to think that football transfers are like shopping at Amazon where you just pay the fee required and then just wait for arrival, laughable really! Like you say Jas how exactly could we have spoken to him earlier sent Laurie to Croatias team hotel the night before a match or perhaps in the last two weeks Laurie could have turned up behind the bar of the Caribbean island he's been no doubt staying on, like a scene from MASH! ;)
Demon did it ever occur to you that after a strong World Cup that maybe just MAYBE Vida WANTS to drag his heals to see if a top four club comes sniffing (ya know like what's worked for Mina)?!
At this stage I just laugh because there's no malice in comments like Demons, it shows a COMPLETE ignorance of how the transfer market works in REALITY ya know when your NOT playing Football Manager! ;-O.

WOLVESCOAST- I get pissed off on a daily basis with stuff that goes on in my job (I suspect most do) BUT I am professional enough to not go onto social medium and whine about it like a angry teenager! Also I get your sentiment fella but c'mon this ain't like a normal job! Don't know about you but I have rarely got to pocket hundreds of thousands of pounds just for moving jobs!

Flawed- can you not just show a bit of humility fella?! The Everton fans have come on and generally been complementary, haven't patronised (like many do) and your response is basically 'yeah well we are only going to get better'! Which is nonsensical because EVERY team in the league will most likely improve as that's the nature of development. Also your A-Z missed one rather glaring point and that is that Everton (like most teams in the league) will improve a whole lot as well! Especially considering they had none of there deadline day super stars playing in actual fact it probably wasn't a bad time to play them! But to say 'Everton played well, Wolves weren't at the best' is frankly just childish cause if that's the case it only our own fault! You speak as if all clubs haven't had the same opportunity to prepare, like we've had to rush things which is just nonsense! And yes the league being harder DOES mean passes go a stray because suddenly people have half the time to make the passes! Boly was a classic example, worst game I've seen him have in a Wolves shirt but that's simply because he was playing at a Champ pace! He will adjust but like all of um it will take time/ games.
I agree with some of what you said, especially the part about learning how to play the Prem Refs and how there were MANY positives. Just wonder if we couldn't be a little more fair in the assessment of both teams performances, rather than making out that Everton were lucky to get anything (which wasn't the case for the game I saw)?
Also hadn't seen the stick Rui got but frankly those persons need to sort themselves out cause he made two TOP saves and generally looked class! COYW ;)

In fairness to him he probably has his reasons for not liking us, I mean for a man of his intellect Wolverhampton is an awfully long word! Its not just him though I am SO sick of the scouse mafia in the pundits box! Wouldn't mind if they were any good but they all seem to have had a personality bypass! ; (.

Welcome Ukie, the more the merrier fella ;)
Wollaby- Well Liverpool played Man City off the park a couple of times this season and City played just about every other team in the league off the park so we need to be realistic!

I don't think many teams will do it to be fair but Ukie is just being realistic in saying that over the course of an ENTIRE season it WILL happen. No shame in that, we've just been promoted in fact the only thing that matters in those instances is how the fans react and then how the team reacts next game! Which is where I think Nuno will come into his own as he did when breaking ALL of our expectations last season!

Still guys we do NEED to be realistic this season, even with the quality bought in there will be off days. We had them in the Champ, only difference is down there our quality usually let us still steal a win whereas in the Prem teams won't be so generous! All that said I CAN'T WAIT FOR SATURDAY! C'MON YOU WOLVES! ;)

But why wouldn't we fill bigger in the future?! We have been the perennial Championship 'big boys' and even in League One maintained decent numbers, yet some seem to think attendance growth is impossible, why? To put it into perspective when Fosun arrived we were getting a regular 17-20k whereas just last season it was average of approx 28200. So they've added (approx) 10k in just TWO seasons with quality players and footy being the main attraction! Now I realise such things have a cap but IF and its a BIG if but just say they turn us into the Champs League team of the midlands, with the quality of players to boot (as seems to be their plan) still reckon we'd struggle to fill 50k seats cause I'm not sure we would!
Don't understand how people can complain about the idea of progress, reality is if we want to be a consistent top end club it would probs take a stadium move long term anyway. Just look at Spurs or Arsenal and the difference it will make to those clubs future success. I love the Mol but if Fosun want to give the club the kind of chance most clubs would KILL for then not sure how fans could let a bit of nostalgia get in the way of that. Either way the Mol would be left at some point in the future, cause that's just the way life is no point getting precious about it! Just my opinion of course but there ya go;) COYW.
