A Bola. Ola John should be here for a medical and signing.
Luisao wanting a big payday, also wanting another year's contract at Benfica. We are at an impasse as we are not willing to pay what he wants. At least that's the gist of it.
Plenty of haggling to be done if we really want him but if we have this money to blew have we looked for anyone outside the Mendes stable. He is also Brazilian so are we going to have the same work permit problems as Talisca.

If he has been residing in Portugal for 14 years he will likely have a Portuguese passport
The other guy was not for real and total BS.

Luisao gained Portuguese citizenship in 2010.

Wasn't sure about Lambert but I am impressed with the way he is going about the job. If the kids continue to develop we could have a homegrown squad in a few years at minimal cost. We still need a striker but don't expect much to happen in this window. The question for the summer is how to get Costa to stay or replace him with quality. Cav still needs work to justify his price tag. If Mendes is involved in transfers Thelwell needs to do proper due diligence this time but some foreign flair has provided the spark this year. I'm sure Lambert will get it right this time.

No comments by Tamworth and Wednesfield what's up

Great win again! Typical Derby, scrappy affair. We were anywhere near as good as stoke last week. Helder was a long way off his game, but a lovely player. Especially when he's on it. Nouha has no composure in front of goal. He just bangs the ball at the goal keeper.

That's why we need a quality striker. One with composure would pass it over or around the goal keeper not just blast it at him. Helder has this quality. That's what's makes him so good on his day.
PL so far seems to be doing a good job. Personally I would have like to see the same team as was out against stoke or at leat MW in the team. 👍😉

Lol I think some on here think I love to see Wolves lose? I love Wolves with a passion, that's why I spend a lot of money going home and away! But because of my passion I want perfection, that's why I'm critical at times!

Yesterday I was very proud of Lambo, the lads and our fans! We must try and keep Costa and get players in with his ability! If someone offers 3 mil for Dicko I say take it!

4.) 15 Jan 2017 12:05:04
I tend to agree about Dicko. I would love him to be the Dicko of old but I fear that will never happen. We desperately need a good striker above all else. To continue to play Dicko isn't doing him or the team any good as he continually spurns chances and denies chances for his team mates. Sad I know but I also think he has to go, or at least is rested for a time.

5.) 15 Jan 2017 13:28:21
Dicko is desperate to score think he's over trying that's all he's showing flashes of old now.

6.) 15 Jan 2017 13:34:02
Paul, like most you want perfection but that does not happen overnight or even next week or month. It takes time, a good eye for the right palyer and I would say a slice of luck too. but most of all something some Wolves fan lack in spades - patience

7.) 15 Jan 2017 15:22:03
If we let dicko go it will be same as vokes winnall he will find his shooting boots and bang em home let's give him a chance he deserves it.

8.) 16 Jan 2017 17:30:43
A tough one with Dicko. Bod too. We had Siggy playing a number of matches at the end of the last season without scoring. Seems to be something about the way we play, that the goals come from midfielders. Especially Edwards, who likes to get well forward when the ball is going down the wing. I think he's robbing these guys of scoring opportunities!



06 Jan 2017 13:20:57
Oh dear here we are with another bomb squad and we can't afford to get what we need until some of them have been moved on. Well Fosun, mistakes carry an awfully long tail behind them. As you are now finding out. Why did you go for mediocre quantity in the summer to put us in this mess which is going to take ages to sort out.

Gordon Bennett

1.) 06 Jan 2017 14:29:41
Another doom merchant, only happy when things aren't right Gordon

2.) 06 Jan 2017 15:15:18
I wish Fosun would sell up. They knew nothing about football. Let's get an owner with previous experience. Steve Morgan anyone? Oh yeah, we drive him out and got billionaire owners who want to make a difference. Why don't some fans give anyone a chance.

3.) 06 Jan 2017 16:28:29
Some better than others it's the same with all teams even Man U buy players that they get rid of at a loss



01 Jan 2017 09:18:29
Lambert needs to put his specs back on if he thought that was brilliant. The whole point of football is to score goals at one end and stop them going in at the other. Dicko can't be on the pitch for so long when all we do is lump balls up and put crosses in which he never gets near. We went to pot when Bright went off.
There are some rubbish teams this year and we are struggling. Unbelievable!

Gordon Bennett

1.) 01 Jan 2017 10:08:11
I agree with most of it Gordon but I don't think Bright is ready for it yet. The only player worth keepin after yesterday was Price, and I'd def give him the captains armband.

2.) 01 Jan 2017 12:02:50
Yesterday's result could be a blessing in disguise as continuing to win against bottom half teams gas masked how much work needs to be done. Take Costa and Cav away we have a L1 team. The spine of the team is the same on as when we were in L1. Ikeme nailed on to start, not been challenged for at least 4 years. Batth / Stears good partnership 4 years ago. Edwards currently our star player/ performer says if all really. been here 10 years and can't sell or replace him! He must have some some compromising photos of someone!
Price yesterday pinged the ball left and right but it WAS QPR probably the worst team I've seen at mol this season. Needs a Centre Mid next to him who he can rely on being there to protect the defence
Dicko not even 50% of the player he was.
Ultimately these 4-5 players need challenging to push them on or out.
Doherty has been shocking. why can't we get a left footed left back at the club.
Coady trier but not a right back
Mason competing with Bright and Edwards for the no10 role. how exciting! Futures Bright in the team
Bod. is he what we need? 19 without a goal and not many shots
I like Lambert but he has a job on his hands . same one as KJ had getting rid of the old and bringing some to challenge for the promotion otherwise it's another long spell in this league at best.
Happy New Year and hopefully a better 2017 being a wolves fan.

3.) 01 Jan 2017 15:08:09
We had the perfect player to ping balls left to right and he ran the show against us for Fulham. if anyone thinks jack price is the answer against the worst team IV seen at mol in ages then we're in more trouble than we had thought. and they beat us! Says it all really. we need new players not the same old ones or ones coming back from injury.

4.) 01 Jan 2017 19:03:46
I applaud you Timtoo3.👏👍.



22 Dec 2016 09:17:37
All the best Gee.
If we are likely to lose Costa then it makes sense to get Sako back. But what we need most of all is a striker. Please not McCormack. He has been playing like a donkey when he has got in the Villa team and looks well overweight.

How can Mendes have been allowed to foist so many duds on us? Where was Thelwell supposed research on players? Why are players injured who have never played? Why can't foreign owners show some respect for clubs with proud histories? Blackburn, Charlton, Coventry etc there is a rottenness in our game and the fans don't matter.

All good points you make but you must remember that most of the top teams are now owned by Overseas investors. The only teams in the Premier League I can think of with British owners are: Spurs, Bournemouth, Middlesbrough, Stoke and Palace.

{Ed001's Note - Bournemouth are owned by a Russian who pumps in fortunes, hence their rise. Palace have been bought by Americans.}

2.) 17 Dec 2016 13:00:10
Bournemouth are mostly owned by a Russian, Maxim Denim in that he owns the biggest percentage. He sold off 25per cent of his shares to a US equity business. So not British owned. Denim lives on Sandbanks in Bournemouth and is very close to Eddie Howe. Just to clarify JasM. 😉.

3.) 17 Dec 2016 17:41:46
When you sign as many random players as we did some are surely going to be good in fact 2 of them scored today!

Were you watching the one from Liverpool/ Porto? We are getting the one from Benfica who never seems to have played for them.

Gary Neville disaster at Valencia sacked in a few months and he didn't do England much good did he? As for Giggs never had a proper job apart from playing. We need experience.

We need an experienced manager not Giggs who has not a held a managerial job. Look at the mess Gary Neville made at Valencia. Ex players need to learn the job. Don't know who is available but it needs someone who can play attractive football but is tough enough for the rigours of this league, and who wants to win games rather than not lose them. If Kenny goes I wish him well, decent bloke, he got us out of a right mess but lost his way when Morgan pulled the plug.

I guess when 84 people have been mowed down in France it puts things in perspective, but one thing should be clear to the powers that be at our club. Whether the sale is going through or has stalled or folded, we cannot go into the season with the threadbare squad we have got. Some decisions have to be made now if we are not going to go into the season unprepared an demoralised.
I hope everything is still on track and maybe Lopetugui is hedging his bets because he doesn't want to find he's missed out on both jobs, but if we haven't pulled the deal off then that's pretty worrying.
It seems that nobody is any wiser than anybody else and if negotiations aren't complete it is going to be a fluid situation till it's done and pointless to claim to be in the know.
