Iorfa has been added to the Premier League squad list. I assume this is going to be emergency cover for Doc if there are injuries to him or Jonny.

StattoWolf II

1.) 04 Sep 2018 15:21:43
Looks that way. He has plenty of experience now, and Doc will be injured sooner or later. We've been lucky with him the last few seasons.

He can fill in for Bennett too, now that Batth has moved out.

2.) 05 Sep 2018 21:50:42
Maybe he has demonstrated a positive attitude and a willingness to learn. This appears to be a pre-requisite for Nuno from all his players and quite rightly so. I think a few, Iorfa included, didn’t ingratiate themselves with the coach when he first arrived and he very quickly shipped them out on loan. Looks like a second chance has been granted and Iorfa may well have shown that he has learned his lesson. He has a lot of natural attributes, but has a lot to learn if he is to fulfil his early promise.
Other possibility is that we tried to move him out and there was no takers, so to keep some transfer value he has been named in the first team squad, prefer the first option but have no insider knowledge!



21 May 2018 13:37:24
I have seen it reported that we are in talks with Bayer Leverkusen over a transfer for Bernd Leno. Out of all the various goalkeepers we have been linked with, I really hope that this one is true!

StattoWolf II

1.) 21 May 2018 14:48:03
Ditto statto!

2.) 21 May 2018 15:45:36
Bernd Leno is the pick of the bunch from all we have been linked with. goalkeepers wise
Would be amazing to take him!

3.) 21 May 2018 16:08:13
With the number of goalkeepers we are being link with I'm worried that our formation next season could be 8/ 1/ 1/ 1. No doubt of the message to Ruddy who kept how many clean sheets last season? Not saying it's wrong but ruthless, if true. Bring on the PL new faces.

4.) 21 May 2018 16:35:23
100% Statto.

5.) 21 May 2018 18:13:58
Agree that we’re being linked with an awful lot of GK’s. Primary positions we should be looking at 1st should be CF x 2 CB x 2 and also cover/ starter for Doc. I do think we need an upgrade on Ruddy but these should be the primary positions to fill first in my opinion. can't wait for next season!

6.) 21 May 2018 19:50:42
Looks like bolly has signed.

7.) 21 May 2018 23:11:18
Ruddy has always been dodgy. Can't catch for one.



15 Apr 2018 09:36:58
Moving away from our celebrations slightly, I have read that Everton are looking to link up with agent Mino Raiola to help improve their recruitment strategy.

I guess that rather than trying to get the rules changed to disrupt us (as was reported about their meeting on Thursday), it looks like some Premiership clubs think our model is a good idea after all!

StattoWolf II

1.) 15 Apr 2018 11:53:30
It puts a lot of power into the hands, and wallets, of super-agents. On the other hand, it's been good for the careers of Neves and others, who would still be playing in the reserves of to European teams.

2.) 15 Apr 2018 12:49:28
Uncle Jorge is here today!

3.) 15 Apr 2018 16:23:43
It seems silly season is here already. Just seen a report saying Mendes is looking to move Neves on from Wolves.

4.) 15 Apr 2018 17:19:57
The mistake many of these teams are making is that they are recycling coaches.
What made Wolves this season is Nuno. He attracted some players that Lambert wouldn't have. He knew what Portuguese players would fit into his style of football and he probably knew Neves would move for the right opportunity rather than sit on the bench at Porto.

5.) 15 Apr 2018 18:59:42
We tried foreign coaches before but they didn't work out maybe Nuno was third time lucky.

6.) 15 Apr 2018 23:12:15
Spot on Timmy, what a lot of these fans from other clubs don't seem to realise is that with all our wonder players Mendes wasn't the main pull it was VERY much Nuno! He'd worked with almost all of them, that's why they came! Yes Mendes gets them in the room initially but its Nuno and the club that persuade them to sign up! ;)

7.) 16 Apr 2018 09:04:52
Anewdawn. I agree on Maddison and Sessengnon. and personally I would add Jack Grealish to that Wish List.
Plus 2 quality Strikers needed (sorry B and A) . and some reinforcements at the Back.



13 Apr 2018 00:15:05
Just read a snippet that Premier League clubs want to discuss our relationship with Mendes at their quarterly meeting. Do I sense the Premiership are worried about who we could sign and actually challenge?

StattoWolf II

1.) 13 Apr 2018 01:12:04
Would like to hear what Man City have to say considering Ederson, Otamendi, Bernardo Silva and Mangala are all Gestifute clients and Mourinho at Utd is too. From that list itself it shows that Mendes moves his established players to the bigger clubs and uses other clubs to build a players stock. Suits me fine.

2.) 13 Apr 2018 10:25:36
The EPL will be glad to have at least one midlands club in the league. The midlands is a significant demographic. The opportunity is bigger than any us ever imagined. WWFC need to gear up fast and will need a bigger stadium to sustain a position as the midland number one club. You will never get 60,000 at the Mol site - its time to think big and build a new stadium off-site. let's not get too sentimental about the Mol. I grew up going to the old Mol, the scene of the glories of the fifties no one cared about knocking that down. Forget the past think of tomorrow.

3.) 13 Apr 2018 13:29:20
I think we should stay at that site build upwards if necessary because Wolves is the most famous thing about Wolverhampton and to move away from the centre might suit the club but not the town or should I say city.

4.) 13 Apr 2018 16:34:31
I agree window wolf I’ve been going to the mol since the 1950s and I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else it’s ideal where it stands now we can build upwards.

5.) 13 Apr 2018 17:47:27
Jeff Shi has already stated that there are no plans to move to a new site. The only plans are to improve, enlarge the ground where it stands now.

6.) 13 Apr 2018 19:12:54
It's footballing history. Must stay at molineux.



13 Feb 2018 11:25:32
So the FA aren't taking any action against Jack Robinson for hitting Jota in the face because the panel of three referees weren't unanimous that it was a red card offence. Have I missed a rule change allowing players to raise hands against an opponent and not get sent off? It's not as if there isn't clear evidence as to what happened.

Oh well, we move on and look for our next three points!

StattoWolf II

1.) 13 Feb 2018 12:34:26
Yeah saw that ludicrous decision
Jota take it out on some Preston and Norwich defenders and score a few.

2.) 13 Feb 2018 12:52:11
Pathetic decision.

3.) 13 Feb 2018 13:44:06
You have to be joking that was a clear red.

4.) 13 Feb 2018 14:20:13
Only goes to prove the inconsistencies of all referees, those still working and also those that have retired.
Let's move on.

5.) 13 Feb 2018 17:25:36
But you know that if it had been a Man Utd/ Liverpool/ Man City/ Arsenal/ Chelsea or Spurs player assaulted, the FA would have taken a very different view.

6.) 13 Feb 2018 19:11:56
Did we really expect anything else, from the FA?
We are clearly not one of their favourite clubs.
But let’s take the positives- Jota wasn’t hurt, we won the match, oh, and we won’t be playing Holloway’s thugs next year.

7.) 13 Feb 2018 19:19:50
Guess he's just too honest a player in these times when a touch on opponents sock is " contact", he gets up every time and doesn't do a "Smalling". On different note, does any one know when our shirt contract is up and who new sponsors will be. First time I've never bought the new shirt, sponsors put me off.

8.) 14 Feb 2018 07:33:10
Sponsor runs out after next season I think mate. And yeah, I got one of the retro shirts this season because of not wanting that money shop crap on my top.

9.) 14 Feb 2018 19:58:17
Think main sponsor would be s fosun company like club med etc.

10.) 16 Feb 2018 12:03:57
Been to by someone in club shop that we are switching from Puma to Adidas as kit suppliers next season.

No Batth or Enobakhare in the squad for Sheff Wed. Loan moves on the cards?

StattoWolf II

1.) 28 Aug 2018 20:50:32
Looks likely. Is Enobakhare fit or carrying an injury?

2.) 29 Aug 2018 10:16:34
I hadn't heard that he was injured so assume that something must be lined up.

3.) 29 Aug 2018 11:30:30
Danny and Bright will almost certainly go out on loan this week. Danny to Sheff Wed, where he will probably end up permanently. Bright needs playing time in the championship and hopefully will come back to us a better finisher.



26 Jul 2018 14:42:09
A lot of Wolves supporters have been very critical of other teams hierarchies and fans for being arrogant, cocky, disparaging about our club. I for one don't like it but would prefer to take the moral high ground and fans on here have said similar.

HOWEVER, there have recently been posts on here which can easily be construed as arrogant and cocky and disparaging to others - all the things that we have accused other teams of! Some opinions being spouted could easily see other fans around the country think what a load of tossers Wolves fans are. I know we are not and that we have all waited for the good times to roll and we are all enjoying the ride, but come on guys, let's have some perspective and grace.

I would rather people think "well done Wolves, a big club is rising again and good luck to you"

StattoWolf II

1.) 26 Jul 2018 16:26:02
Oh, get off your high horse and let them have some fun, Statto. This is football, true arrogance is what is being displayed between the United Kingdom and the E. U. I'll leave it to you as to which party is the most arrogant.

2.) 26 Jul 2018 16:45:00
You can have fun without being arrogant and there's no harm in having some class or grace! (Not Colin's definition! ) There is a difference between having ambition and shooting your mouth off.

And don't get me started on politics and the incompetence being shown there!

3.) 26 Jul 2018 16:59:03
Well said Statto, some posts on here are overly 'tongue in cheek'. Let's be proud of our club but show respect and good grace to others.

4.) 26 Jul 2018 21:09:38
Here here!



13 Jun 2018 11:49:37
I have just read an article on thevE&S website with two "experts" on Portuguese football regarding Jiminez. It does seem that he is a traditional centre forward but does not contribute much to the overall team. Having read this, I don't really see how he will fit into the system we play other than as an impact sub, which appears to be what he has been throughout his career.

As such, I would expect more attacking signings. I know nothing about the guy, so have to take these opinions at face value, but both do not feel he is worth the money. Let's hope Nuno works his magic and they are proved wrong!

StattoWolf II



17 May 2018 21:36:02
So Neves has been left out of Portugal's World Cup squad. Whilst I am sure he is devastated, from a club perspective it's probably the best thing for Wolves - he gets a summer of rest and he is not further in the limelight (although I believe him when he says he doesn't want to leave) .

StattoWolf II

1.) 18 May 2018 07:18:32
Absolutely gutted for him especially when Adrien Silva who hardly played was selected ahead of him. The rest will do him good and hopefully he'll be determined to show the selectors they were wrong which will only benefit us.

2.) 18 May 2018 09:04:35
Couldn't agree more statto and jas.

3.) 18 May 2018 11:43:07
Had to replace him in my fantasy team with Toni Kronos. Don’t think many countries are taking this Word Cup serious anyway, certainly not Portugal.



15 May 2018 19:37:08
I believe that Sporting Lisbon players have been attacked by supporters at their training ground and there are rumours that players are looking to leave. Bas Dost was one of them who was injured. I would love us to put a bid in for him - a very good goalscorer who probably is now looking for a move.

StattoWolf II

1.) 16 May 2018 05:49:08
I think there are better striker out there tho.

2.) 16 May 2018 10:18:53
Since 2010, he has scored 142 goals in 212 club games for Heerenveen, Wolfsburg and Sporting. that's a ratio of 2 goals in every 3 games. He's a finisher and has done it at European level.

I agree guys. Danny is Wolves through and through but time moves on and it is clear that he is not in Nuno's plans. Whatever his limitations and whether these will be exposed in the Premier League, he led our team in our rise back from a crisis and his contribution should not be forgotten.

I have thought that for a while Oxleymoorwolf but I haven't posted it as I know there are fans on here who will shoot you down that we need to "move on". However given Cavaleiro's injury and Douglas' departure it makes sense to me as cover and a left footed free kick option. A one year deal or even a deal until January to give him potential game time and cover our injuries seems to make sense to me.

Fitz87, I'm with you on Welbeck. Yes he is injury prone but when he does play, he knows where the back of the net is.

I'd be happier with Lindelof instead of Pepe! I do think we are missing a trick with Mawson despite the reported £20m price tag though. But it's Nuno's view that counts!

Batth is still here because we need 8 homegrown players in our 25 man squad who aren't youth players. Whilst we have some good players, the amount of Portuguese we have mean we are going to have to keep some lesser players to fulfil the rules.

I'd rather have us gone for Mawson than the rumoured transfer for Pepe - younger, potential, resale value and meets the home grown requirements.

StattoWolf II

{Ed001's Note - you don't 'need' 8, you just have a gap in the squad if you have less than 8.}

Sigurdsson is a great player albeit displacing Moutinho and Neves at present would be a stretch, and I would agree that on current form Richarlison and Bernard could get in ahead of Costa and Jota but I disagree that anyone else would WALK into the Wolves team. I wouldn't swap Patricio or any of our defence for Everton's. Ĺook at the current defensive records. We have conceded half the number of goals as Everton.
Doherty has just won the PFA Player of the Month so he definitely gets in ahead of Coleman. Bennett and Coady have been revelations at the back and there are very few central defenders as classy as Boly.

Of course everyone should stick up for their team and this is all about opinions and we are all partizan but on current form, the statements don't hold up.

A bit hypocritical from Southgate who responded to a question about Coady last year saying he would need to prove he can do it in the Prem. Nothing against Mount but he isn't playing Prem football.

Oh well, from a Wolves perspective, it keeps him fresh for us not being selected.

I am disappointed that he has signed for the Albion but you've got to be pragmatic. He has a career to think about and if he feels he is best off there, then that's his call.

There is very little loyalty in football and it works both ways - there are fans on here saying that various members of last seasons promotion winning squad aren't good enough for the Prem and need to be moved on because that's football. This is just the same thing from a players perspective.

If Sako had an offer from Wolves to return and turned us down for the Albion then fans might have a basis to criticise, but that wasn't the case.

Tremendous performance again from the boys. Taking points off both Manchester teams are in effect bonuses this season, but how we are performing shows just how far we have come and set a benchmark.

In my lifetime as a Wolf, I haven't seen a team which is so organised, disciplined and full of flair! This is brilliant!
