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 ;)

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! 😉.

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?

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.

OODCL.


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! ;)

BullysBoy

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 ;)

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 ;)

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

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.
INWT.


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?

goo.gl/ZE1fP9


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!

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.

. who will have beaten Villa, presumably. I don't think Villa can reasonably hope to get automatic promotion now, with Fulham doing so well.

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.

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 ;)

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! ;-)

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.

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.

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.

When Athletico signed Jonny they did it on a six year contract, so I suspect they are in that for the long term. Especially when you consider that they have Jaunfran playing RB and Luis Felipe playing LB, both class but both also 31/ 32! They know what they're doing, let Jonny improve on our time then take him back with the experience. Works for all parties, I mean he's already got his national debut now so I think they have a plan for him especially with him being a Spanish player.

Also Matt no offence fella but that is clearly nonsense with Zinchenko, mostly because like Stu says football doesn't work like that, either the moneys right or it ain't! Not to mention that I'm not convinced Neves was a priority for them then else we would have known about it, they tend to buy the finished article rather than take punts on players that hadn't (back then) played in the Prem.

Add to that Zinchenko didn't just reject us straight off the bid was on the table for about a month. Think more likely Jet Ski was right and the lad thought he'd be going to a bottom of the league dog fight. As for now well let's move on, he had his chance and he missed it HIS mistake! COYW ;)

I'm still wishing on a star for Vincent Aboubakar! I think its unlikely cause there will be MANY watching him. As much as I rate Leo and Raul for what they bring to the team (have we already forgotten the class assist by Leo the week before?! ) . But a player like Aboubakar really would take us to the next level, that said its likely to cost £30+m so probs just a dream! COYW ;)

Have to say KSS I'm finding that a bit of a weird one as well, just don't see how it can JUST be match fitness. I mean we signed him over a month a go now so by this stage he has no excuse for not being up to speed. Add to this he is still getting in the Belgium squad despite not playing a league game for us, so they clearly ain't worried about his fitness. Not saying its anything sinister (as I have not a clue why it is) but I do find it a bit of an odd one. I mean surely if its just getting him up to speed then why not put him on the bench?! I imagine he'd be quite handy protecting a lead? Will be good when we do get to see him cause he's been well rated along the way. Maybe Nunos keeping as a special surprise for Jose, with E and S talk that a deal between him and United broke down last Jan it could be like a ' Heres what you could have one'! :) Special treat for the 'Sulky one'! COYW ;)

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! 😉.

Ah ok Ed, apologies for some reason I thought they'd changed it in the Prem a season or so back to one season minimum ;)

{Ed001's Note - they might have done, like I said, they might only have been lower league ones. I can't remember now, they all start to merge into one after a while! Now I am thinking about it, I think you are correct and I am wrong.}

Have to be honest as time goes by I care less and less about the 'player' transfers. Simply because there's one person at the club for me who's ground zero for the potential of this club and that's Nuno! If we keep him the rest will fall into place if not then the wheels could still come off! Just look at Lopetegui, looked like the one that got away or the next big thing and already having potential replacements tied with his job! Think we have the REAL deal in Nuno and the longer we keep him the better chance we have of making Wolves the kind of club us fans have always wanted and the kinda of club Fosun new they were buying! In Nuno we trust! ;)

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! ; (.
