Lambert said of Oniangue: "He needs to get games. He's a lovely lad, a really top bloke, but I can only pick two central midfielders and there's more here than I can count. "

Is this the biggest hint yet that two or more CMs are on their way out? A week agao I would have guessed Saville and Evans but not so sure now. But he won't sell Edwards, Price or Saiss presumably. Coady looks like he offers some consistency too, wherever he is played. Tough one.

Reports that the Luisao deal is being held up by one party, likely to be Wolves. He would be on 40k/ wk, which is OK for a player of his standard but maybe a bit much for Wolves.

Lol reports sorry no body nos about in house moneys.


2.) 23 Aug 2016 23:21:30
I honestly don't believe fosun would be hesitant at paying him 40k so I doubt that's it. But does any1 think this might turn into a talisca saga n end in the same way?


3.) 24 Aug 2016 03:58:05
I hear wolves have offered him £35k but he wants £60k .


4.) 24 Aug 2016 09:33:38
Deal is now considered to be off (according to reports oversees)


5.) 24 Aug 2016 10:24:42
I'm in Portugal at the moment and the Benfica fans saying he's leaving for Wolverhampton? But they also say they thought talisca was a done deal to us to. so who knows. by the way it's bleedin hot here . but all inclusive bar helps 😎.

E&S carrying an article showing we're among the favourites for relegation. Seeing as we tend to underperform bookies' odds, this is very depressing.

Euroman

1.) 18 May 2016 16:48:14
Euroman,

If they make us 5000-1 for promotion I'll take it. Bookies don't offer silly odds, do they? Oops, forgot about Leicester.

I'll have a bet we won't get relegated.


2.) 18 May 2016 17:36:55
You are brave, Deep Throat.

Apart from 2 years ago, we always seem to finish below where the bookies have us. But yes, let's remember Leicester and let's hope they are very very wrong.

If we do go down, we have the perfect manager to get us up again.


3.) 18 May 2016 18:16:13
Anybody know anything about Wolves Pride FC?


4.) 18 May 2016 23:22:01
Wolves won't be anywhere near the relegation zone. We have already the spine of a very decent team. 3 or 4 quality additions and we can make a substantial push towards the play-offs.

At 33/ 1, we're surely worth a fanciful fiver at the beginning to win it! Honestly though, looking at what the likes of Villa are doing, without some very savvy recruitment mid-table mediocrity again is most likely.


5.) 19 May 2016 09:51:03
Id'e have £20 on those odds, that's the price of two Poxey pies and a tea and Coffee at half time. Yep I'm up for that, bring it on. Catch the bookies out before we sell the club and bring in a manager.
Oh yessss.

Looks like we've signed Hakeem Odofin, striker from Barnet for £100k.

"One for the future", but you guessed that.

Anyone know where the KMc to Bournemouth or Fulham rumour came from? It's appeared in the E&S rumours.

Euroman

1.) 01 Sep 2015 09:46:37
Guessing it's coming from the fact we're in for Williams from Palace. Wouldn't be surprised if K Mac goes - no contract signed.


2.) 01 Sep 2015 13:49:46
Nothing out there yet on either. Let's hope he stays, although I get the impression he's feeling restless.

Right so there must be a chant for Chelsea - like: Our Costa is better than your Costa, or something like that.

This is getting exciting. Haven't seen so much international transfer activity at Wolves since 2012.

. after which we were relegated.

Euroman

1.) 02 Aug 2016 15:43:22
. hope its not a trend European.


2.) 02 Aug 2016 15:44:37
Yes, we were relegated, because Moxey and Morgan had totally unrealistic expectations of getting their moneys worth from the crocked and jaded players they'd already signed on such long contracts before Stale even arrived.

The bomb squad refused to work with Stale, Morgan and Moxey blamed Stale, backed the players and sacked him, then we got relegated because it wasn't Stale that was the problem, it was our existing players, Brit and Irish, like Jonhson, OHara, Doyle etc.

The only bit of real light we've had in recent times was Sako and he was an international we have Stale to blame for.


3.) 02 Aug 2016 15:45:52
sorry European I meant.


4.) 02 Aug 2016 17:30:18
Oxleymoorwolf your spellchecker is getting the better of you. Twice!

Stale signed some good players that season. I always liked Tongo Doumbia. And the Polish loanee Pezko who has been a regular in his national team pretty well from when Deano sent him home. Boukari too, what little we saw of him, and Sako was a real find. Hopefully Zenga's players will be equally good and, more importantly, he himself will be good enough to manage them. At least this time we haven't got the egotistical established players to interfere this time. In fact the only "established" players are really Ikeme and Edwards. Batth to a lesser extent.


5.) 02 Aug 2016 17:39:35
Stop moaning Wolves fans the past is the past let's think positive and get behind the club and think of the future, our luck as got to change sometime with all the money we have wasted and let's be honest nobody in there right mind would of wanted we to carry on as we were it was awful shopping at poundland and listening to all those lies from Moxey and Morgan and Jackett with the same old stories every week making excuses instead of having the Balls to tell Morgan and Moxey what was needed to get Wolves promoted which to is credit he probably did and was refused and if that was the case which I think it was he should of left the club at that time, then I would have had more respect for him.


 

 

02 Aug 2016 09:08:29
Wondered what Wolves was in Portuguese. It's "Lobos". And "Come on you Wolves" is "Vamos la, Lobos".

In Italian it's "venire su di voi lupi" according to google. Doesn't have the same punch to it.

Clearly no news this morning.

That's Moxey finally away to join Delia. So we can't blame him for anything at Wolves any more now.

Euroman

1.) 28 Jul 2016 13:26:39
Delia persuaded Moxey to come to Norwich promising Moxey her secret recipe in pie making, so Moxey couldn't refuse.


2.) 28 Jul 2016 15:08:39
He got a signed copy of "One is Fun" on his arrival.

I've been thinking (is that allowed? ) With Sako and Afobe going to the Premier and probably Hause and Iofa following them, it's been a long time since we've had so much talent that clubs have come to us. We don't know, but it's not inconceivable McDonald, Price or maybe Graham will go to bigger clubs. And Edwards is playing in France, which will not do him any harm even at his age.

In the 10 years or so before this season who did we lose to bigger clubs? (Not counting those who later got promoted) Jarvis/ Fletcher/ Kightly when we got relegated. Miller a few years earlier. Before that, who, Lescott?

Soooooo. with all this apparent talent, how come we're not punching at our weight? This leaves me thinking that there isn't a lot wrong with most of our players, nor our scouts or our academy. The inescapable conclusion is that our coaching and management is falling short.

Kenny might be a tactician - and last season not a particularly successful one - but is our coaching really so bad?

Euroman

1.) 06 Jun 2016 09:40:57
Euroman, good point. These days we're punching below our weight given the quality of some of our players over the past five years.


2.) 06 Jun 2016 10:20:41
It's a very good point Euroman. I've said that of Kenny and his shortcomings. The squad we had last season was easily top 6 standard. So to be languishing below Leeds, Preston and Birmingham was simply not good enough.
Our players - Attracting Premier League admirers
Our scouts - Have performed reasonably well, especially at an under-21 level
Our academy - The £6 million redevelopment; the only reasonable investment made in infrastructure by 'development expert' Morgan!

That just goes to show that the foundations are in place; now we just need someone who can make proper use of them. For me, now that so many managers have been taken in the past few weeks, I'd take Rob Edwards. Would certainly uphold the principle of promoting within. Could also bring in his own coaching staff who also care about the club. Jody Craddock for instance?


3.) 06 Jun 2016 11:27:15
Euroman. Haveing looked at the lasy seasons results and reports for 15/ 16 the under 21's managed 2 wins all season and the U18's 1 win, if our coaching process is so good please explain the results. It is clear that it cannot be that good imo, 2 games in the under 21's poor season included conceding 7 goals.


4.) 06 Jun 2016 13:04:58
Spanish - the way it works with these youngsters is that only a handful will ever make it. Some make it so far (like Zeli and McAlinden) but players like Price and Iorfa are much rarer. However the point is that there are decent players coming through, unlike 5-10 years ago when it was really just goalkeepers. Would be good if they had results for sure, but that's a secondary objective.

Interesting point Wolfie Wilde - yes, the academy looks like a good £££ generator as if that's more important than results on the field.


5.) 06 Jun 2016 13:13:44
Wolfie You are really getting carried away you really are. NONE of our teams at any age group did well last season so the coaching staff - inc KJ - have to be held to account as to their performances
Edwards I do not think is what we need he will end up being another Moxey yes man
We need someone with experience who can stand up for himself so we actually need a new owner and Moxey gone its the only sensible solution.


6.) 06 Jun 2016 15:57:35
How come we got links with USA clubs via gis so how come never have exchange programs they can't all be so bad can't train with u21/ 18s could be missing out on some unseen talent if not going exchange what point off being in USA?

I agree with Wavid about Ronan and Gibss-White. We've been playing too much from midfield, with strikers little more than the front line of midfield. If we can feed the ball to Bod or whoever more frequently then we should see more of those turn-shoot-score goals we all love. Many of our goals come from set pieces and from crosses along a 5-man front line. Let's mix it up a bit!

So many comments.

Right, Wavid, Price may or may not be the answer but I think we can agree that Saville and Evans are the question. What worked against PL second elevens isn't working against hardened Championship teams.

Edwards is a bit of a problem. He likes to get forward and score. Perhaps he should be feeding the strikers rather than trying to be one himself? As others have said, our strikers are fine. They battle up front, but they just don't see enough of the ball.

Defence - yes it's gone back to the bad days. Because Batth wasn't playing? Maybe. But that doesn't explain the doziness of Coady and Doc. Or does it? Whatever we were doing before the cup games is where we should going back to.

My starting 11 would be 4-4-1-1
Ikeme
Coady/ Marshall Batth/ Hause Stearman Doc
Costa Saiss Price Ronan
Edwards/ Cav Bodvarsson

Subs: alts as above plus Mason, Dicko, Burgoyne and Weimann (or maybe Gibbs-White)

Correct, no Evans or Saville. I know there are 3 strikers on the bench but I think these are our best players. Not sure what to do about Iorfa or Bright. They aren't game-changers.

He's turned the corner for us. Hopefully we won't go down now! Outside chance of playoffs, but I think Burton showed us we still have work on the back 4 to do. If we finish top half I think we can say he's done well for us. But then again, Jackett would probably have got us to top half.

I don't know if a top quality striker would make much of a difference as many of our goals come from midfield or set balls from defenders. It's the way we play. The strikers mostly hold the ball up front and they do have shots - just not very successful ones.

We have Mason, Dicko, Bright, Bod, Zyro and now Weimann with Costa, Cav, Ronan, Graham and depending on how your mind works, Edwards just behind. That's better than most clubs. Or should be. Patience.

Very soon Bod will shock us all with a hattrick.

Yes I rate these two. I know they're not consistent. But even at the top, players usually aren't. But put a few in the same team at the same time and one or two can make a massive difference.

Yes it's making me nervous too. I agree we need to target 20 points, taking risks if it starts to look like they're not forthcoming.

These won't be big risks. We have Ronan and Gibbs-White now looking like real options. And Saiss needs to come in to toughen up the middle, although Price generally does a good job. Play them both but drop Edwards? Tough call. My perverse logic is that without Edwards, the strikers will score more goals. So I'd go 442 with Costa and Ronan wide, Bod and Cav to attack. Or Costa and Cav wide, Bod and Dicko/ Mason/ Weimann/ Zyro/ Edwards as number 10.

It's a brave owner that gets rid of a manager who is doing just about OK. Brum got rid of Rowett but that's unusual. Clubs like Man City and Real Madrid change their managers much more frequently, if they only finish second, say.

Yes, McCarthy stayed too long. And we had no plan B when we fired him, hence Clipboard when it should have been Bruce or Curbishley.

We're in good shape now. Just make sure we make good decisions.

Who knows? Sometimes appointing a dynamic European works well (Pochettino, Mourinho, Conte) sometimes not (Zenga, Solbakken, Henning Berg, Solskjaer, Rosler, Gross, Santini and even Scolari) . But that's true of British managers too (Deano comes to mind) . It's always a risk.

Appointing Lambert follows what Wolves have often done - picked a manager with a good track record (McCarthy, Hoddle, Taylor, Jones, McGhee) and it's never been a disaster, just not always a success. We have seen with managers like Moyes, Redknapp and O'Neill that success at one or more clubs doesn't translate to future success.

Lambert is the safe option. He's steadied us and looks like he's turning us around from what looked like free-fall. Exactly what we needed. I dare say Bruce, Allardyce, Hughton, Pearson, Warnock and other experienced managers at this level could have done the same. Will we get promoted? Unlikely this season, and I would still watch my back as we're only 7 points away from relegation, and could so easily be down there with a little bit of bad luck. Assuming we stay up, the question is, will Lambert keep his job if we don't get promotion next season?

Yes it's not just money, but it helps. Newcastle, Villa, QPR and other spend more than we do and are playing in the Championship. Then look at Burnley and Hull, and for that matter Leicester, and see what can be achieved.

We have a solid manager who may or may not deliver. I think we agree it's the same feeling as when Mick took over, and when Kenny took over in L1. If we can get a couple of good years out of him then that's good.

Does everyone agree that changing manager in November was the best thing we did? Memories of hanging on to Solbakken too long and then choosing the wrong replacement. And just like we had Sako from Solbakken's days, we have Costa now.
