On a random note, like most fans I was unsure why Douglas was sold as it seemed like an odd call. Just seen him bought off for Leeds and his reaction seemed quite telling (and to be honest surprising) . Shaking his head and swearing all the way off then quite forcibly pushed away a coach when they tried to hug/ comfort him! I always liked the lad but seeing that you have to wonder if he was a bit high maintenance! I mean it was a tactical sub when they'd just gone 2-0 and still he was throwing his toys out! Can't even imagine how Nuno would have reacted to those antics! COYW.


1.) 12 Nov 2018 22:35:47
Both Douglas and Afobe were sold for serious disciplinary reasons.

Caught together I understand.



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 ;)


1.) 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.

2.) 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.

3.) 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 . 😂.

4.) 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.

5.) 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! 😉.

6.) 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 .

7.) 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!

8.) 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?

9.) 10 Sep 2018 08:27:05
Start designing that statue!



16 Aug 2018 19:08:59
Tell you one player I wouldn't mind on a free for a season would be Yaya Troure. If he's physically up to it of course and his wages aren't stupid (which I suspect they would be mind) .

Just think at his age a Coady type move to the back as a ball playing CB could work a treat! Not to mention he would cover there and DMF. I mean if protecting a lead with 20 mins to go away I couldn't think of a better defensive sub! Again I think it won't happen cause we are clearly happy with the current balance to the team but just a thought ;) COYW.


1.) 17 Aug 2018 12:18:22
If I remember, Bullysboy, Yaya stated he would play in the prem lge for £1 if any team were interested. Can't better that!

2.) 18 Aug 2018 20:22:12
Half-time losing 2-0 to worst team in league. Wolves will go down - too many tippy/ tappy Portuguese posers. Neves, Batth and Hause are only Prem-level players.

3.) 18 Aug 2018 22:16:36
We were unlucky. One of the Portugese posers hit the bar and we hit the post twice. On another day they go in and we win.

4.) 18 Aug 2018 23:43:56
Sorry Jas but that isn't the case. Jota looks a shadow of the player from last year and Costa looks fat and uninterested. Bonatini looked terrible when he came on and Bennett is too slow. Adama was a bright spark and I think Jimenez works so hard. We all know about the class of Neves and we are missing Cav and Dendonker but this is the premisership, you don't take the chance you get punished. I'd take 17th now.

5.) 19 Aug 2018 12:55:29
WobblyBobbly is clearly a troll and needs removing from the site and Costa fat? Hahahahahahahahahahaha

I hate our fans. We’ve played well against 2 top half teams and we were unlucky with both results. Give the players some time, we will be more than fine, chill out and let Fosun and Nuno do what they do.

I’ll aay it now, the only thing stopping Fosun make Wolves a force will be our stupid fickle fans.

6.) 19 Aug 2018 13:09:58
We played very well and at times gave Leicester a footballing lesson. Without a doubt the best team lost as even the Leicester manager admitted afterwards. Sure we lost but that was largely down to terrible luck. We could and probably should have been 3-0 up inside the opening 25 minutes. Leicester then got two huge slices of luck - a freak own goal and a long range deflected shot - that turned the game on its head. Thereafter we lacked the cutting edge to recover. Bonatini is hopelessly out of his depth. Bennett was our best defender as he was last week. Neves and Moutinho look good together and Jimenez is very decent. At the moment our wing backs and our attacking threats - Costa, Jota etc - look out of sorts but good players don’t become bad players overnight. We will be absolutely fine this season. Top half without a doubt. I can count at least 1/ teams worse than us and that includes Leicester.


7.) 19 Aug 2018 14:44:10
StuuCorbett - well said. I’ve raised the Wobblybobbly being a troll on here before but still he seems to be happy to spout his silly garbage.

8.) 19 Aug 2018 14:58:28
wobbly is a Sandwell town fan DAS, Ignore him, just trying to stir things up.

9.) 19 Aug 2018 15:37:07
Good summary DAS. Definitely things to improve on, but there is much to give confidence in a reasonable finish. There is a touch of realism for those who predicted top 6 finish.

10.) 22 Aug 2018 07:38:44
Well I was more then happy the way we played it isn't a 1 game season we will grow into the league we are going off 2 games in the best league in the WORLD keep the faith.



17 Jul 2018 08:55:37
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!

07 Dec 2018 11:12:37
I said it before and I will say it again now, ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?! ;) I am of course mostly joking but I can't help but feel that the current run highlights the problem for the majority of our fans. The Editor summed it up perfectly (to be fair to him BEFORE the Chelsea game) the problem isn't the performance it is the entirely UNREALISTIC expectation for performance! I spent ALL summer on here shooting fans down and saying that a top 8 expectation for a newly promoted team is frankly a nonsense. Doesn't matter who you have backing you or where you come from this league takes no prisoners.

By the by I feel I should point out that this HONESTLY isn't aimed at the moaners, for example Mr Tamworth you give EVERYTHING for this team so please believe me I'm honestly NOT doubting your good intentions. But all I was saying ALL summer is that if we have unrealistic expectation all that can possibly lead to is calling for Nunos head come Jan (as it turns out for some we didn't even make it till Jan;). I'm pleased to see that when it happened the Ed RIGHTLY pointed out how lucky we are to have Nuno. Again not having a go here but I saw a post threatening Lopetgui (before the win) and I just sit here thinking . to what end?! Where does the madness stop?

We had one bad run (that incidentally was also Nunos personal worst run) and peeps were already calling for the mans head but I ask you where does that lead? My worry is that it leads to a Jan appointment of an Allardyce esq manager and an acceptance of a relegation battle! Just look at Southampton, they have bounced from average manager to average manager because of crazy expectation!

I suppose what I'm saying here is that I HONESTLY know that we all LOVE the team and that its ALWAYS from the right place but c'mon guys let's give Nuno and the players a chance by standing by um! Fergy was famously one result away from the sack the season before they won the league and look where keeping the faith got United!

I'm not asking for blind faith and (as I've said before) had we been around relegation come Jan then I would have understood the tone on here but at the time we were 12th! How many times has this club been in 12th in the Prem, WELL clear of relegation and still talking (albeit quietly) about a new manager? The point is (even if it is long-winded;) that we shouldn't hold Nuno responsible if we have unrealistic expectations. This is our first season back in the big time for six years and when we were here before we were ONLY ever looked at the bottom half of the table!

All I'm saying is that as fans of the a club we would do well to keep reminding ourselves of where we have come from and what we have ALL been through to get here! Cause (for me) being realistic to our current challenge is the ONLY way we can 'stay the course' and walk that (well worn) path to the HUGE potential this team may have! COYW ;)

P.S. - Paul T, couldn't agree with more with your original post, same again plus Neves please ;)


1.) 07 Dec 2018 11:36:13
Bullysboy that message is of encyclopaedia proportions! But I get the drift, have patience and keep your expectations realistic. 👍 Newcastle 0 Wolves 8 or sack Nuno! 😂.

2.) 07 Dec 2018 12:01:02
17th or above plain and simple!

3.) 07 Dec 2018 13:43:59
17th or above will do me this season, would love a top 10 position though.

4.) 07 Dec 2018 18:09:47
What's the panic it's a slow burn. COYW.

5.) 07 Dec 2018 19:13:05
Haha, fair play PT that made me giggle! ;) Also apologies gents as I wrote this upon my return from the public house last night after 1 or 2 shandies (cough 5/ 6 cough)! Anyway I still meant the point but re-reading its pretty long/ tedious not to mention a bit ranty so yeah sorry for one;)
I'll try and avoid posting after a couple in the future! Mind you quite amazed I manged to string that much together considering! COYW ;)

6.) 08 Dec 2018 07:07:45
That's why we love the game. Why we love our wolves. A big wheel ride would be boring if it didn't go round. And, of course we love the banter on the way.



08 Nov 2018 21:30:46
Um, hate to say it but when I read one or two posts on here and ya know what I'm not sure we even deserve owners like Fosun! Its been said before that you often get the owners you deserve and if we ain't careful Fosun will get sick of the moaning and sell us on to Morgan markII!

I mean they take us from mid table Champ obscurity where we are buying players like Joe Mason to a mid table Prem team with the most exciting midfield I've seen line up for us in my life time in under three seasons and still people find something to moan about?! 'Oh no we can't win every week' let's make wholes sale changes then cause that's how football works?! Well as many have said Fulham went for that and just see how its going to end up! I have to ask what did people expect when playing in this league, home wins all round cause frankly that's just foolish not to mention naive?!

Oh and of course one or two are taking a while to adjust (Costa/ Jota) but what exactly did people expect?! We are 11 games in, playing at a higher level than virtually the whole team has EVER played before well guess what that can take time! Sorry to go on here but I feel like the worlds gone mad! We are 11 games in, look like a team that don't need to be scared of anyone in one of the best leagues in the world and still playing lovely football!

I was at that Spurs game and we were very unlucky but let's get some perspective here. its SPURS! They have the best away form in the League, are a champs league regulars with a squad worth multi millions and we lost by one bad decision I mean c'mon guys GET A GRIP! I was driving back from that match thinking we are feeling hard done by when losing to one of the best teams in the country due to one bad lines mans call!

Let me tell you for a fan that's been there for the double relegation and the climb back that to me a is a pretty darn good place to be! I would also point out that despite the result I LOVED being at that match, what a game! To quote a certain Gladiator 'Are you not entertained?! '

C'mon peeps, have some faith and back the boys! If we are even near relegation come Xmas these posts could make sense but right now (for me) they just make us look like spoilt kids going 'I want success NOW, NOW, NOW'! COYW;)


1.) 08 Nov 2018 22:41:22
Well said Bullysboy. Hit the nail on the head.

2.) 09 Nov 2018 00:27:28
You’re right of course BullysBoy. We’ve come a long way in a short space of time.

3.) 09 Nov 2018 07:26:49
Excellent post BB. You've put in words exactly what I've been thinking whenever I read any negative posts. There seems to be a lot of 'experts' out there who are quick to post their comments without using the 10 second rule. Read, think, post. or not.
Following the Spurs game I was buzzing with what I had seen, and on another day both Costa's and Raul's efforts would have gone in.
We are being entertained, we are getting value for money, we have an amazing manager, amazing owners, and we are all together as one.
I first saw Wolves as a kid in 1970, I still whenever I can drive four hours for games (8 hour round trip) to see my team.
Keep The Faith.

4.) 09 Nov 2018 18:16:14
No one said wholesale changes, simply because the squad isn't good enough to make them. We have got 14 players who are good enough to finish mid table, if your ambitions are like mine you'll realise we need 5 or 6 players to break into the top 8 on a regular basis. No one is moanin about the football bein played, it's the lack of end product that's the problem. Nuno needs better in all areas so he is able to implement a plan B and C. I'm not moanin, its constructive criticism. For example we could not play a back 4 as Boly is the only centre half capable of playin it, so there's plan B out the window.

5.) 09 Nov 2018 18:58:13
Wolf PT you're both right. Nuno's building a side, he's sorting out the wheat from the chaff. I trust Nuno to get it right. you're both committed supporters which is brilliant. If we all keep our heads I'm positive we're in for a fantastic future. UTW.

6.) 09 Nov 2018 20:13:38
Think we're all ambitious Paul But you now sound like the know it all Paul from a few yrs back.

7.) 09 Nov 2018 20:32:44
I bet Jeff Shi is complaining about the same thing the fans are. He wants top of the table football, too.

And many of the players have played in the Champions League and the World Cup/ European Cup.
Where did Patricio play? Jimenez? Neves? Moutinho? Jonny? Bennett?

8.) 09 Nov 2018 20:37:05
Apparently, our squad is not worth multi-millions.

9.) 09 Nov 2018 20:37:17
Think what u want wolves till I die Zzzzzzzzzz.

10.) 09 Nov 2018 21:13:32

11.) 09 Nov 2018 22:57:23
Thing is Paul I actually agree with you, I think most fans can see that we need greater depth/ options in the long term. And of course for any kind of progression that will have to happen, its the NOW, NOW, NOW approach that's winding me up! As though quality players are cueing up to sign for a newly promoted team and just turn up off a set menu! Getting the right player takes time, someone asked why we didn't have a plan b from Zinchenko and the answer is because that's not how Fosun work they always want a plan a so they will no doubt find a new one. I would also say that the Jan transfer window is not the time to be getting 5/ 6 players cause clubs want silly money.

Thing is here I wasn't saying let's all just settle with what we have I am just saying can we all keep some perspective please! The progress we have made has been INSANE so for me there is no need to doubt that Fosun will change on that front. I just get a bit wound up when we have a couple of losses and suddenly the general tone is negative cause we still have SO much to be happy about! On a side note Paul I have to say for the most parts I agree with your posts as they are more constructive than just having a moan so wasn't really aimed at what you were saying;) COYW.

12.) 09 Nov 2018 23:11:36
Timmy - on the other hand fella I think you are being more than a little churlish here! Of course I'm not saying our squads not worth good money but please tell me are you ACTUALLY suggesting our squad is worth even near the value of a Spurs team that has been put together over decades of Prem football?!

Also You say about those players being in the champs league but that's just ain't the same thing! Cause they all came from leagues that aren't CLOSE to the Prem standard, which is precisely why they got into the Champs league! So by you reckoning if we sign a player from Celtic then they should walk the Prem cause hey they've kicked a ball in the Champs league, haha BEHAVE! Also Timmy, Jeff won't be complaining cause he's a realist and knows how business works (not to mention its HIS plan)! Even Man City didn't just walk into the top 7, it takes time! I told you that all summer and also predicted that around now you would be saying this, still at least your predicable eh!

This is the thing for me, the problem isn't the club they know where they are and where they are headed. The problem is a small number of fans that have decided that just because we now have some backing that equates to some god given right to a Euro place, despite the fact that at NO time in this league has that EVER happened! Fosun always said they're in it for the long haul, that is because they are sensible enough to know that's what it takes to become a big team! Its just a shame not all our fans can see that, despite history making it abundantly clear with EVERY team that's gone down this route before us! COYW.



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.

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!

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.

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.

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 ;)

16.) 23 May 2018 22:52:01
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.

17.) 23 May 2018 23:07:00
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! ;)


1.) 11 Apr 2018 09:14:25
And me be as funny as f--k 😂😂😂.

2.) 11 Apr 2018 12:07:01
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 ;)


1.) 07 Nov 2017 06:23:36
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 ;)

If its loyalty then you don't skip training unannounced! If this doesn't happen its for one of two reasons either we can't get the clearances so he has been sent back to slum it in the Chump. Or I wouldn't be at all surprised if Tammy is playing blink with Chelsea because I think he would have fancied a perm deal (mostly because that would mean a pay rise;) . He's got till the 14th and I just wonder if he's said to Chelsea let me go with a fee attached else I will head back to Smallvile? Just a thought, time will tell on this one. COYW.

PS- for your 'endless pot of money' you really MUST read the FFP at some point! Like many others you seem to either assume they don't apply to us or they are easy to cheat?! Well they do apply to us and they haven't been easy to cheat for about 6 years now (just ask Madrid they got a transfer ban)! But hey why let something like reality get in the way of your nonsensical approach to running a club!

Just do one Coven you sir a complete wum! In what realm did ANYONE from Wolves say Europe? In what realm did ANYONE say we are the new Man city? Also as per you are entirely wrong! City didn't just start signing superstars, remember Santa Cruz, Craig Bellamy, , Jo. the list is endless! In actual fact anyone with half a brain (so try to keep up here) would say that our comparative signings have been FAR more ambitious for how young our project is!
What REALLY bugs me is that you've sat quietly under a rock for the past month while we have set the league a light just lying in wait for one bad performance so you can head on here JUST give it the smug 'I told you so'! For the most part I try and keep it nice on here but your beyond a joke! Forget Tammy Abraham what this club could REALLY do without is fickle, band wagon jumpers like you!

Noddy you need to re-read the article buddy cause at NO point does he 'talk about the possibility of leaving' I mean he couldn't before the end of the loan anyway unless we cancelled it! All he does say is he doesn't know if he will stay and that's VERY different! And can you blame him after the way we took up Beniks option?! He's not stupid and he knows its on the club so to keep his language neutral, but if a player wants to leave they don't talk about loving playing at the club (like he did) . Also Jas I do believe the £30m fee agreed (or whatever it is around that) would be binding if we wanted to take it up, I suspect what it will come down to is if Nuno/ Mendes think its worth that level of spend comparative to other options they have.
Just got back from today's game and for me at this stage it would be worth it. The guy was EVERYWHERE today, defending set pieces, winning the ball in midfield and oh yeah the important one scoring a goal! COYW ;)

The headline hasn't helped on this one. Because reading his quotes I think what he REALLY means is that he knows he needs to score more goals to justify that fee agreed. I mean he talked about loving it and he's playing regularly at the highest level so why wouldn't he want to stay?! Think he just doesn't want to get egg on his face by lining up behind the club then them not going for him!
On a side note I think he would just about be worth it! I agree he may not ever be prolific but like Jas says his games much more than that. He's one of this new breed of 'false nine' striker where his games as much about team goals as it is his own. You look back over most of our goals this season and he is usually an integral part, even if its just that sly run off the ball to drag a cb away. Not to mention £30m gets you nothing these days with strikers and by some other deals that's still good business for Raul! let's not forget Benteke was £35m!

My biggest issue with Rafas VAR side show (and it was a side show cause like Jose he will do ANYTHING to deflect from a bad result) was that his understanding of VAR is fundamentally WRONG! Every convo on VAR says that the ref would ONLY look at major incidents and how that played out with Boly CLEARLY showed the 'incident' wouldn't have been major! Ironically like you say it could have been the case on the BLATANT foul against Traore only because the ball went out soon after. But when watched back its clear that the ref would have NEVER called for VAR on Boly as he clearly NEVER saw anything which is why he waved play on!

I also HATE how managers like Rafa talk about 'needing' VAR like it was the refs that opted out! No Rafa it was other managers in your league that killed it and NO one else! Incidentally it was mostly the top four that voted it down, anyone who was at the Chelsea game will know exactly why that happened! COYW ;)

Timmy-Sorry I realise that I may not have explained that very well, what I mean is that you are both making the SAME VERY valid point! The pundits ALWAYS focus on the BIGGER club playing badly rather than the smaller club playing well and it annoys me a LOT! I drove home last night hearing nothing but chat about United and Mourinho, not a mention of us and what we are doing! And frankly that REALLY grinds my gears! COYW ;)

Timmy as always fella I'm not sure what you are smoking but you seem to have missed the point! People (mostly our own fans and you) were VERY quick to point out that when we lost it was cause we played badly and VERY much not cause the oppo played well! I think the point Jas is RIGHTLY making here is that the headline is ALWAYS quite FIRMLY (and WRONGLY) focused on the bigger club! As is the case when we lost to Huddersfield and Cardiff!
And Jas you are bang on with this, it has long been a blind spot for many pundits! With the worst offenders ALWAYS bringing the convo back to the top four!
