Idrissa Sylla on Wolves shortlist.


1.) 18 Aug 2017 19:49:56
I still think striker will b a mendes man if we r spending big.

2.) 18 Aug 2017 20:28:42
Why is it hitc say that a lot of wol fans want Afobe back we want a mendes man aboubakar or soares top class striker.

3.) 18 Aug 2017 20:41:02
Nahki wells latest name linked with us might be wrong but I think he is injured.

4.) 18 Aug 2017 20:43:06
Essex HITC just make stuff up to suit they are pathetic really. They do not get any authentic news so they make it up.



31 Jul 2017 11:14:02
Tim Nash saying there will be another striker coming in as well as Bonatini.


1.) 31 Jul 2017 11:23:39

Tim Nash is more of an insider than most journos. Exciting news then. If true, Fosun are not messing about.

This will wind-up Mick McCarthy no end.

2.) 31 Jul 2017 11:33:09
You can see what Mick is saying though. If we were still dragging along the bottom with M&M, and Fosun had bought Ipswich instead, with them, Middlesbrough, Villa, Fulham etc etc, probably the best you could hope for is survival. And as for McCarthy himself, it's clear managers like him aren't going to be getting picked by the big spending clubs, short of a miracle he's never getting back to the Prem. It all turned for him in that hammering we took in that Baggies derby.

Lots have suffered / been knocked out by Morgans little adventure into football, while the pro modern international nature of the game has caught up and taken over.

3.) 31 Jul 2017 12:03:34
I really hope we will sign two strikers and whoever joins us, I will totally support. I must admit though that I really hope neither one will be Gray as he is over priced and has a whole lot of very unpleasant baggage. Wolves can do far better in my opinion.

4.) 31 Jul 2017 12:29:18
I'm not a great fan of gray but he is a better version of dicko. In terms of baggage I can't hold something against that he posted when he was young. We have all do daft things in our youth.
Gray and afobe would make us formidable and make teams fear coming to the molineux IMO. Plus add felxibility in formations that we need.
Plus ultimate respect to dicko to coming to us when we were at our 21st century low. UTW.

5.) 31 Jul 2017 13:02:56
If it is true that there will be another striker after Bonatini then of the names mentioned this Summer these three, in this order, would be my preferences;

1 Vincent Aboubakar
2 Andre Gray
3 Benik Afobe

Not a fan of Sam Gallagher to be honest.

Whatever - it's still a far cry from Lambert's Jonathan Hugill links!

6.) 31 Jul 2017 13:10:21
Unfortunately most egotystical footballers have baggage but people tend to have short memories particularly if the players produce the goods. Just look at John Terry. His many indiscretions hardly get a mention but if he was in a 'normal' job he'd have been hounded out years ago.

7.) 31 Jul 2017 13:16:17
Very fair comment Anewdawn. We will not sign both Afobe and Gray now and my choice between the two would be Afobe every time. Who knows -Fosun may well come up with a name we haven't considered or even heard of. Time will tell.

8.) 31 Jul 2017 13:46:43
John Terry fits the London mob brand, it's cool without being excluding, it worked because he was at Chelsea and they were loaded, and in the Capital city. Man City do fine with hoodlum / gangster types, like Tevez, Ballotelli etc, with their Oasis etc supporters, because they're the urban / street counterpart to glam Man U, they've even developed relationships with New York in that 'street' vein. The kind of thing Brum should be trying to be.

By comparison, Wolverhampton is small and provincial, run down, we wouldn't get away being gangster and still be inclusive, we're not big enough to ride it without it defining us and making us look like broken Britain.

9.) 31 Jul 2017 15:48:43
Sorry ULF but what the hell are you rambling on about? Wolves won't be buying Gray to be enhance the brand of wolves, they'll buy him because he scores goals, and that is what will help with a promotion push.

10.) 31 Jul 2017 16:02:09
Re when Gray was young - he's not putting it behind him though, his twitter account is led with a photo of the scar, he's made it his identity. What are people supposed to think, that's it's a Prussian fencing scar?

11.) 31 Jul 2017 16:15:56
Come again? Have you swallowed a PR or sociology textbook? Or something? Obviously we're not going to take a chance on a bad 'un like, say, a younger Joey Barton. I thought we are looking for a striker to, err, score goals, and not to enhance any brand image. We just want a bloke to do what it says on the tin. Score! And I don't mean with a teammate's missus.

12.) 31 Jul 2017 17:08:35
Cheers Doncaster wolf Afobe and gray would be dreamy though🐺🐺🐺😜😜😜
There is no baggage with gray nor Afobe. Gray was young when he posted those tweets I'm not going to guillotine him over them. They were wrong but capital punishment isn't in the offing. Afobe left because the club had no ambition and was been asset stripped at the time by Morgan and moxey did his bidding.
This is a new style of football where possession and having effective strikers will be paramount. I trust Nino in this regard I just home he doesn't u see estimate the midfield battles we will come up against as price and saiss will get found out. Also I have my reservations about 3-4-3. UTW.

13.) 31 Jul 2017 17:11:03
Ulf what is gray supposed to do about he's scar?
Put a bag on his face when he wears the shirt.
Com'on back to reality. Fans who start to support wolves won't search every players life he also paid the punishment.
We are too nice already!

14.) 31 Jul 2017 17:21:52
No, I'm arguing if they're going to spend a ton of money on Gray, it would make much more sense to spend it on Afobe. I don't doubt either could win us promotion, but Afobe is younger, more potential to develop, and a positive rather than negative match for our brand. And brand should matter to clubs hoping to be at the top.

15.) 31 Jul 2017 18:20:55
Ulf I'm sorry but give it a rest mate. You spouted all this crap about brand, identity and being urban with money shop last year and judging by the players we are signing it obviously hasn't affected us in the slightest. Every post you are just repeating yourself and it gets tedious to read. All we want is someone to come in and score goals, end of! I don't particularly want Afobe back after the 4 months of sulking and unprofessional he displayed but if he does come and does the job I'll be over the moon. Andre Gray is class at this level and has done it in a struggling premiership side too so much the better option surely.

16.) 31 Jul 2017 19:22:46
Hear hear south banker. Fo example Suarez bites someone he still plays for Barcelona does it stop them? The big club have right dodgy deals such as Barcelona claiming to save children then put youngsters to produce Nike kits in Asia. It doesn't effect the brand football fans enjoy football end of. Money shop will be gone next year. And everyone has forgot about grays past apart from you Ulf. Get with the future. I'd rather have a local lad do well with the wolves and be a good star for our youngsters! UTW.

17.) 31 Jul 2017 20:35:35
Absolutely guys. Someone on here is obsessed with our so-called brand. Brand? That's for burgers and fried chicken! Mick got us promoted with his brand, which was all about putting a shift in. Nuno is a far smarter operator than Mick, and has the backing of Fosun/ Mendes. Our brand is winning the title with fast-moving free-flowing possession-based football. I don't give a toss if our footballers or fans are urban or rural. End of.

18.) 31 Jul 2017 22:23:04
If he scored 20 goals for us and we got promoted I'm pretty sure nobody would careless about his twitter profile.



01 Jul 2017 00:22:47
Ruben Neves interest is genuine.


1.) 01 Jul 2017 07:13:18
Yes wol might b able to get him for 20mill Porto in financial trouble were asking 40mill santo is his former manager and a client of mendes according to sports mole a deal is quite close.

2.) 01 Jul 2017 07:56:24
All over the foreign papers.

3.) 01 Jul 2017 08:14:14
It's reported that Nuno didn't fancy Neves much at Porto last year, so strange that he should make him a top target. Hopefully, he'll be thinking that Neves can do a real job for him at the Mol. Hope so, he's an amazing young talent that could boss our midfield and be the creative force we are lacking. Just hope Neves doesn't have an issue with Nuno as his boss again.

4.) 01 Jul 2017 08:18:47
Heard he's had a dip in form last year from my portuguese friend but all round good player.

5.) 01 Jul 2017 08:50:45
Portuguese paper ojo says we signed Rubén neves late last night about 20mill.

6.) 01 Jul 2017 08:52:14
Also bookies make us favourites to land Benin Afobe.

7.) 01 Jul 2017 09:12:49
Getting Afobe back would be awesome! Imagine the goals he would get with Costa Cav and graham in the team. Can't see it though surely a prem team would come in for him and after wolves comments when he left saying he didn't want to be here and stopped caring might have burnt that bridge.

8.) 01 Jul 2017 09:20:34
Can't see Afobe coming back with his tail between his legs, if a prem club would be interested. More likely be off to that little club down the road.

9.) 01 Jul 2017 09:20:41
neves had a big fallout with nuno last season because nuno dropped him
What isn’t likely is the player leaving Porto to join Wolves and reunite with the manager who frustrated him so much last season.

10.) 01 Jul 2017 10:07:42
When Benin Afobe left laurel and hardy were in charge and jackett was manager since then thelwell is the only survivor there's been a hole new regime at the club things could b different at wol he should have a lot more quality around him.

11.) 01 Jul 2017 10:36:49
Thelwell won't be here long anyway now.

12.) 01 Jul 2017 10:38:42
No to Afobe, bad attitude. Not done very well down here with a good setup. Neves a Prem player, no way he will come to Wolves. sadly. great rumour though. :-)

13.) 01 Jul 2017 11:02:18
Afobe team mate Wilson would be better option. With Defoe taking one place up front for Bournemouth and King the most likely to play alongside, may be able to get Wilson years after we opted for Leon Clarke rather than his then Coventry strike partner.

14.) 01 Jul 2017 12:34:29
If Thelwell won't be here for long who is making the decisions on our incoming transfers? Makes sense that if you are about to leave you can make major decisions on the make up of the team. not.



27 Jun 2017 11:26:08
We're rumoured to be after Felix Wiedwald, Werder Bremen goalkeeper.


1.) 27 Jun 2017 12:08:13
Yes, heard that too. Ironic that we are playing Werder Bremen in pre season match soon, I wonder which side Felix will be with for that! I have also heard Wolves are showing interest in Bournemouth winger Max Gradel. He wants away from Bournemouth as wants game time so he keeps his place in Ivory coast squad ahead of next summers world cup. He is a right handful and plays on left wing, he is lightening quick and beats defenders often with ease, so with him on left and Costa on the right defenders would have a right headache - Bring it on Jeff!

2.) 27 Jun 2017 12:26:36
No goals or assists in 11 games last season, would have been great in the old Wolves. We're trying to get rid of players with goal scoring records like that.

Perhaps could do something dropping a division but no good for us next year in the Prem

Viva la revolution.

3.) 27 Jun 2017 13:21:45
To be fair most of 11 appearances were from the bench as he had been out for 6 months. He did actually score one too. Just for the record! Admittedly though he is a championship player really as opposed to premier leauge but he is very effective at that level, ask any Leeds fan. He had loads of assists when with them and chipped in with a reasonable return on goals for an out and out winger (which is what he basically is) I'm not too bothered about premier league quality as such, can sort that out as and when we become a premier league club, but for now the job is to get out of that league and I genuinely believe he could help our squad achieve that.

4.) 27 Jun 2017 13:59:09
Fair point, but do we need another winger. We've got Costa/ Zyro Right and Cav/ Graham Left. If we could get GK, LB, CM, LM and CF sorted first, if funds were still available then perhaps Gradel could be useful.

5.) 27 Jun 2017 14:35:06
I don't think you will have to wait very long to see us sign the new CF you are asking for. As for CM I think we actually need two! We have been linked recently to Grant Leadbitter. I think that would be a very good signing his contract with Boro is up in December. They probably want to keep him! ¬ but that is kind of quality/ experience we are sadly lacking in midfield. Has been the case for far too long.



19 Jun 2017 12:05:03
Apparently we're keeping close tabs on Aves striker Alexandre Guedes.


1.) 19 Jun 2017 12:51:41
I wouldn't take any notice of that rumour if it's from E and S as they also say James Henry is to join Portsmouth even though Kevin Gallen spoke to the press on Sunday and said he's not in their plans.

2.) 19 Jun 2017 18:24:26
Okay I know what I said other day about the lack signings might be sign we're not rushing in to them like last season but Jeff shi said he wanted it all done by the end of June so where are they I hope it's because there taking there time over them I really do as starting to get a little More concerned.

3.) 19 Jun 2017 18:38:17
The Aves striker coming to Wolves? Possibly Fake News. Or Pie in the Sky news!
I've just seen another similar report but it's based on the E&S report! Regurgitated news.
I'm not saying there's no truth in the rumour but we do need more than a single E&S report.

4.) 19 Jun 2017 18:59:38
Alexandre Guedes is contracted till 2020 it could b a biggish fee which may put us off sounds a decent striker.

5.) 19 Jun 2017 20:20:56
I know the £7m fee for Kevin McDonald is high, but I'd still like to see him return. A fresh start?

6.) 19 Jun 2017 20:23:51
George Saville off to Millwall with Jed Wallace. We can all give a big collective sigh of relieve at last. Couldn't we throw Price and Edwards into the bargain, too?

7.) 19 Jun 2017 20:42:24
George saville looks as though he's off to millwall with jed Wallace that's a start a few more to go with them a step in the right direction.

8.) 19 Jun 2017 21:39:04
Wavidsmith, I'm pretty sure Nuno mentioned Edwards at the press conference and saying his experience will help players coming in, and help him and his coaching staff at just because of his experience so I don't Edwards is going anywhere tbh.

9.) 19 Jun 2017 21:59:27
Time the driftwood was set to float away. Up next: Lee Evans.

Score predictions for tomorrow then👇🏼 I'm going 2:0 wolves.


1.) 04 Aug 2017 16:41:22
I am saying 2-1 to Wolves.

2.) 04 Aug 2017 17:08:51
I hope 1-0 Wolves. I think we'll shut up shop (by moving it around rather than parking) and sneak an opportune goal. I suspect Nuno has tasked the team to keep a clean sheet above all else.



01 Aug 2017 10:30:01
Leo Bonatini to score 20+ goals this season, remember this post.


1.) 01 Aug 2017 10:49:54
Welcome Leo Bonatini!

2.) 01 aug 2017 13:24:51
scores with both feet but mostly left.

3.) 01 Aug 2017 13:39:31
I used to work in Saudi. Not much to do other than watch football in spare time. The standard of play there is not great but they pay foreigners well. I reached out to a couple of mates to see if they had any experience of watching Leo. All responses were very positive stating he was one of the league's super stars. However, they also stated he used to drift in and out of games because of what looked like boredom. I guess that won't happen in the championship! First time poster UTW.



14 Jul 2017 13:59:42
A lot of people saying Nelson Oliveira is set to sign for wolves.


1.) 14 Jul 2017 15:33:20
I think he is a waste of money for the sums I have heard banded around. Not been impressed when I have seen him for Forest or Norwich and liable to get a red card. Think clubs are inflating prices because we now have money; we still need to be shrewd.

2.) 14 Jul 2017 16:50:28
Regarding Nelson Oliveira I got to say that from what I've seen of him be it live or on TV, he does absolutely nothing for me. Very Lazy! I know a few years ago at benfica he was highly rated and thought of. there's just a nagging feeling with me that his attitude just isn't what it's supposed to be. So for me personally its a big no on that front.

3.) 14 Jul 2017 20:20:02
First year in champship 15 goals you guys mad.



23 May 2017 11:40:38
Marco Silva is in talks with Porto.


1.) 23 May 2017 12:14:02
Yep, that looks to be the case with regards MS? So that would appear to be the end of that if it was ever an option in the first place. Looks like his choice is Porto or Southampton! So our Drama goes on as usual! 😢.

2.) 23 May 2017 15:39:51
On other site their linkin us with Nuno ex Porto boss? The list gets longer lol.

Don't forget Paulo Sousa.

Portuguese sports news reporters advising that Nuno is to be next wolves manager . links with Mendes .

5.) 23 May 2017 17:36:04
Wouldn't rule it out Pete, definitely a step up from Lambert.

6.) 23 May 2017 17:51:44
Will not be big Sam Paul . he would never work with Mendes or Fosun . he likes total control. Nuno Santo has a decent track record took Porto to 2nd in their league behind Benfica could be an option also Mendes his agent . looks as this could explain delay as Porto waiting for Silva and the freeing Nuno Santo.

7.) 23 May 2017 18:04:01
I'm on about Nuno, Pete, I don't want big Sam.

8.) 23 May 2017 21:16:56
Just speaking to my friend who is a Valencia season ticket holder and says that Nuno would be perfect for Wolves, very aggressive and attacking football. And that Ruben Vezo will follow, Nuno also a big friend of Mendes.



10 May 2017 16:41:18
We're now being linked with Bartosz Bialkowski.
