Any sightings of either new manager or players? Messi slipped through the back door aljng with Conte Yet?


1.) 16 May 2017 13:25:08
Conte - foreign manager who doesn't know the league so no way would we win it.



12 May 2017 21:13:05
Aitor Karanka; would much prefer him to bloody PL. If this happens I'll be happy. He's also got good links with Mourinho and Real Madrid and more pulling power for English players ide say than PL. let's do it now. so we can start the season knowing who's in.


1.) 12 May 2017 21:25:07
Mendes is his agent.

2.) 12 May 2017 21:32:09
Yeah I seen that. Which makes it even more believable.

3.) 13 May 2017 00:17:06
Lambert has links with Jurgen Klopp, Borussia Dortmund and Celtic. Links don't mean anything.

{Ed007's Note - And Motherwell and St Mirren.}



09 Mar 2017 00:26:59
Any news on Lambert getting sacked?


1.) 09 Mar 2017 03:02:10
Yes he isn't.

2.) 09 Mar 2017 06:09:12
Jas now I see the sence.

3.) 09 Mar 2017 08:21:58
He will be.

4.) 09 Mar 2017 09:13:46
Lambert will be given the summer and reassessed one results from there.

I can't understand why all other players are coming out in the media and trying to explain the situation we in but have heard nothing off the skipper?

This says a lot about the dressing rom in my eyes.

New captain required soon as season has ended. We need leaders!

5.) 09 Mar 2017 09:43:03
New manager, and a new spine minimum in the summer if we're to challenge for promotion! People called Zenga and Saunders useless but their record is better than this idiots! Time for change Fosun!

6.) 09 Mar 2017 09:48:49
If Baath did come out and same something they'd only be other fans moaning about that as well.

7.) 09 Mar 2017 09:21:57

8.) 09 Mar 2017 12:20:31
The players don't have to apologise and keep makeing excuses, we fans are not thick and we now when things are not right and they have not been for a long time, but enough is enough now, wants a big clear out at the end of season, let's all hope we do not get relegated that would be unthinkable my team for Saturday would be 4-4-2 Ikeme, Coady, Hause, Williamson, Doherty, Costa, saiss, Price, Cavilaro, Dicho, Bodvarson.

9.) 09 Mar 2017 12:38:25
no player should have much to say TBH. talking on the pitch counts and currently most are dumb!
PT - Who do you want realistically as a Head Coach? this is not football manager where you reset every 5-6 months. Since Feb 2012 MM left, Connor 13 games, Solbakken 30 games, Saunders 20, Jackett 150, Zenga 17, Lambert currently around 20 not including Edwards two stints. Don't you think this has left us counting the cost of having two many poor quality players with constant clean slates with a new bloke coming in. How do you think any Head Coach can get a system with players he inherits. I hope that we follow sandwell towns recent way of thinking and stick with a bloke rather than get rid if the going is tough and building something solid.

10.) 09 Mar 2017 12:55:47
Ajwolf, Lambert states the squads to big? But he still can't find 11 winners and put round pegs in round holes! The baggies have had a few managers till they've found the right one, and now they have! Lambert couldn't lace Pullis's boots, he's absolutely clueless and makes Saunders look like Sir Alex! Sean Dyche, Warburton, Rowett are three I'd approach, but what they must be allowed to do is bring in Their own back room staff and clear the stale ones out we've got here, Mountain, Daley, Edwards etc!

11.) 09 Mar 2017 14:05:05
I agree that the backroom staff should go some have been here way too long and are complacent
What I can't believe is that a company of Fosuns financial power have settled for second best.

12.) 09 Mar 2017 13:43:47
I had a good idea last night, actually. What about replacing Kevin Thelwell with Kenny Jackett as head scout? Kenny is really respected within the game and just loves scouting those 'ones for the future'. It would benefit Paul Lambert, too, having somebody of the calibre of Jackett to fall back on.

I also think he would be good at scouting players from the UK, if Fosun are still going the 'tried and tested championship player' route. I fear many on here would just see that as the same as having Thelwell, but I don't think it would be a bad idea at all.

13.) 09 Mar 2017 13:55:45
In terms of head coach, you can't look any further than Rowett if Lambert only musters a draw up this weekend and consequently gets the boot.

14.) 09 Mar 2017 14:19:34
If u want Wolves to make progress, Jackett and Lambert shouldn't come into the equation.

15.) 09 Mar 2017 14:24:09
We've been crap since we introduced the head coach role. Go back to a manager who controls the club.
PT - we do have too many players and issue is we do not have ONE single player who could play in the prem every week. Unless we have some consistency nothing will change, why should it. Players are the only constan. rubbish on the pitch and laughing at us as its player power and the head coaches fault. Dyche LMFAO you really think he'd come to little wolves. Warburton looks like he falls out with his shadow and Rowett no better than Lambert with the players we have.

16.) 09 Mar 2017 14:52:49
He went to poxy Burnley and ended up with half our team! As I've said before, the ball is firmly in Fosuns court as to what level of success we achieve? Only they can change us from a little club mentality to MIGHTY WOLVES!

17.) 09 Mar 2017 14:57:26
ajwolf any manager would come to our great club if they were given the tools to do the job properly . Fosun are a multi billionaire company that can compete at any level they choose too its just up to them where they wish to take us. If this is to the top of English football then they need to spend somewhere in the region of 750m to 1 billion and to the top of European football well the sky's the limit.

18.) 09 Mar 2017 16:48:10
Upto 1 billion. really? You think anyone inc Fosun are going to spend that? does having guarantee success. no it only gives you choices and currently we make diabolical choices. The back room staff advising these choices have no prem or decent Champ experience so how do they know how to get to the prem. Ultimately are they going to advise Fosun to sack them? Fosun need balls and big chicken balls to deliver what they want. will it be prawn toast or a chinese banquet I know where my money would be.

19.) 09 Mar 2017 17:09:00
The fact of the matter is, if you want success in football the spending never stops!

20.) 09 Mar 2017 17:27:09
Aj I didn't say they would spend that kind of money I only said that they could spend that kind of money if they choose. Where have you been hiding for the last 15 years because at least two premier league clubs have clearly spent well over 750 million. I was just pointing out that they could have any manager they want if there willing to give them the tools to do the job properly. However I'm with you in thinking they won't spend anywhere near that kind of money but please don't sell us out thinking we couldn't attract a manager of Sean dyche calibre fosun could have however they want. Always remember like players there only do it for one thing MONEY.

21.) 09 Mar 2017 20:35:38
This isn't zenga or lambert fault but the players NOT being good enough. Until we get some prem quality all through the spine of the team we ain't going anywhere. Edwards been at the club 10 years and now our nailed on selection just shows how far we've gone backwards.
Dyche is out our league😜 After what he's achieved at, Burnley other prem teams would snap him up sharp.

22.) 09 Mar 2017 21:16:40
Little chance of us getting Dyche we need to find the Dyche of tomorrow we always go for managers with Championship experience like Lambert Jackett McCarthy Jones when we don't they last just a few matches like Deano Connor Zenga Solbakken

Lambert will be happy to keep us up now just a month ago he was talking of playoffs we should be able to do this but with Wigan and Blackburn winning it gets more complicated.

23.) 10 Mar 2017 22:14:29
I said it last week, and i say it now. Lambert back to Norwich, Rowett to us. Lambert loves Norwich, and it suits both parties in terms of their families and location. Even if Wolves win tomorrow, don't be surprised at this if Norwich take time in appointing someone.

24.) 11 Mar 2017 06:54:46
It's been said that Alan Pardew is going to come in.?

25.) 11 Mar 2017 09:14:28
Last bloke we need.
His ego enters the room before him.

26.) 11 Mar 2017 11:24:21
No I meant Pardew to go to Norwich so Lambert will be staying.

27.) 11 Mar 2017 11:53:18
Even if Lambert wins today, he could go. It's all politics. Norwich want Lambert, but he needs to be sacked to do so. It will only take one more defeat in the week anyway. As for our new manager, I can't look past Rowett because of the fact his kids are already settled and he likes it here. He also fits the 'young upcoming' model Fosun like so much. I even want the manager to lose today, just to quicken up the process. Pretty sad, eh?

28.) 11 Mar 2017 17:40:57
Just to be clear, Rowett failed to get promotion from division two in his two full seasons at Burton. He got into the playoffs each season but his team scored 71 goals then 47. We scored 51 the season we dropped out the championship. In two seasons at Blues he finished 10th each season scoring 63 goals. At the same time we were scoring 98 goals with the magic trio then in the season with the goal machines ALF and Siggy with KJ giving up on attack we scored 80 goals. I don't know what you are expecting of Rowett but although he has done alright with limited resources there is no way we could take a chance on him getting promotion. Start your search thinking about people who have got a team promoted then think about someone who has managed more than a season in the prem without ever getting relegated. See how many you can think of.

29.) 11 Mar 2017 20:40:33
Rowett is the best out there and Fosun would have chosen him a head of Lambert at the time. Now he is actually available, I can't see Fosun being interested in anyone else tbh.

30.) 11 Mar 2017 22:40:30
Not commenting on anything else on this thread, this is a response to victory v's comment about Rowett.

Rowett brought to Burton and Birmingham organisation and consistency something we haven't had in a long long time. Solid defence is the base of all successful teams, another tick in the Rowett box. I don't agree with hiring and firing all the time but I said before Zenga that we should have appointed Gary Monk and give him a 3-5 year plan as it was too good of an opportunity to pass up. I am saying the same thing again here with Rowett, get him in let him strip the team and re build, give him time money and patience for the 1st 2-3 years and go from there.

31.) 12 Mar 2017 10:02:42
Sorry Stuu I just disagree I think Rowett would be just another KJ type appointment. Organised and structured with limited resources. Within a season our fans would be chewing him up for his attrition football.

32.) 12 Mar 2017 12:55:41
Wolves are already after another foreign coach, according to The Sun. A Jaap Stam type is their preference. I still personally took they'd be mad to miss out on Gary Rowett.

33.) 12 Mar 2017 15:55:41
I think Roy hodgson is about the best manager out there by along way excellent club manager not sure about Rowett.

34.) 12 Mar 2017 15:55:46
On the subject of manager it is very clear that Lambert is the not the man to lead us to the next level - and when I say next level I mean a higher one! Regardless of the players he has at his disposal - and he decided in January that we didn't need a centre back or creative midfielder or striker - his approach is narrow minded, small time. We need a manager with vision who wants to play football which involves passing and moving not hoofing and hoping. A manager who wants to set up his side to win with style and a swagger not grind out a result. If that means a foreign manager then so be it. Personally I'd like to see someone like Dennis Bergkamp, the assistant manager at Ajax. Knows the English game, speaks English and believes in playing real football. With the necessary backing of Fosun it could be a match made in heaven.

35.) 12 Mar 2017 17:03:40
Interesting that there is talk of getting a new manager and then giving him 3 to 5 years to implement his restructuring plan.

How long has Lambert been here? Surely he needs time to work with this squad he inherited.



30 Jan 2017 13:23:18
Any news on the imminent signing of Helda Costa on a permanent? E and S saying be done today.


1.) 30 Jan 2017 14:32:08
Tim Spiers tweeted this earlier.

Tim Spiers ‏@tim_spiers_Star 4h4 hours ago

As things stand I understand the Helder Costa permanent deal is still likely to go through today. Matter of when not if.

2.) 30 Jan 2017 15:25:47
Express and star reporting that cavaleiro is out with a knee injury and is side lined 4 a number of weeks should b back before end of season it's been a problem. 4 quite a while now

3.) 30 Jan 2017 17:02:08
Football insider are saying that Costa's deal is to be confirmed by Tomorrow night as well as Grant Hanely's loan. Looks like we'll be busy on dealine day.

4.) 30 Jan 2017 17:38:32
We have Helmet

5.) 30 Jan 2017 17:46:27
Costa confirmed then boys what a few days. Let's get started now.

6.) 30 jan 2017 17:51:39
deal done costa is now our player, come on me babbies.

7.) 30 Jan 2017 18:01:39
Great news boys top player.



04 Jan 2017 21:50:59
Does anyone on here have anyone with reliable sources to the club. who can possibly she'd some light on any transfer activity other than Marshal.


1.) 04 Jan 2017 22:13:46
Tbf I get all my stuff off net or people on twitter what they've heard and I just share it with you all.

2.) 04 Jan 2017 22:38:20
On hold mate as fosun aren't prepared to pay the 2 million Blackburn want for him. Nice to see most of the other clubs in our league spending big already. Think what Paul Tamworth said earlier is true and Fosun just wanted another string to their bow and won't back up what they have said. Can see Wolves turning in to the next Portsmouth.

3.) 04 Jan 2017 23:43:05
Hang on sec would you pay 2m for someone who has 6 months left on his contract and that would can agree deal with on a pre-contract for nothing or in the summer on a bosman free because I certainly the bloke has rejected 4 new contracts there he won't be signing a new one a may as well just agree a pre-contract and get him on Bosman free transfer!

4.) 04 Jan 2017 23:59:09
Yeah not a great start room far. all be it only 4th Jan. Pompey Wolf. I live in Portsmouth too. Don't suppose you drive a white car with the number plate W8LVE do you?

5.) 05 Jan 2017 07:42:57
No mate no white car but I do live in Portsmouth.

6.) 05 Jan 2017 11:09:19
Yes we have rich owners, but not silly owners. Who in their right mind would pay £2million for a player available on a free in the summer? Blackburn pushing their luck and hoping we get desperate.

Good player, but let's look elsewhere for the immediate and perhaps look at a pre-contract depending on how things go.

7.) 05 Jan 2017 11:13:20
How can Wolves turn into the next Portsmouth when according to you Pomepywolf we won't spend £2M on a player that is out of contract in 6 months. We have offered a £1M which is business sense.

8.) 05 Jan 2017 22:28:12
Because oakwolf we apparently spent 14 million in the first transfer window and with the team doing so badly we aren't getting the gates which means we have spent more than we will make which means we have broken the rules which means fosun will sell up which means we will have a transfer embargo which means we can't buy players which means we will be in debt which means we are doing to drop divisions?!

19 May 2017 21:13:11
Saville 😴. I hope they transfer list him. as he's shocking and wouldn't make the subs Bench of my Sunday league team.




18 May 2017 17:38:12
End of the day. Jackett potato said the same about his job. he was gone within the week. let's hope same goes for Lambert. He's not the man for the job in my oppinion. Plays negative boring football and still does crap. His personality puts me to sleep. can't imagine what it does for the players puts them in a coma for each time then they wake up on match day. Silva looks like he could do the job he'd be my first choice.


1.) 18 May 2017 18:11:04
Yes he would be mine too but realistically I think he will have better offers.

2.) 18 May 2017 19:08:06
His Norwich side didn't play boring negative football in 2010-11, when he got them promoted. They were the Championship top scorers with 83 Goals and, more to the point, he had a full season before that to put his team together when they won League One. If he can put his own team together, who is to say he can't do it again.

3.) 18 May 2017 19:45:55
Agreed jack! Do not want another start of season like the last, new manager, multiple new signings we know it doesn't work, he wasn't my choice But he needs to be given a credible shot at the job.

4.) 18 May 2017 19:56:37
Look PL has done it before and can do it again - he should be given at least until Xmas. In regards to players - we need better ones than we have already in several positions. My gut tells me we should have heard of them and that they are proven in English football. Otherwise it's a high risk strategy are we stay on the rollercoaster.



16 May 2017 14:03:20
I'm in agreement. no point in beating around the bush. If you are sacking him. then bloody sack him. no point it delaying the inevitable. unless they are settling/ negotiating on a compensation for Lambert. Just feel sooner it's done sooner we can move on and start shaping a new team. get rid of the flops and priorities the main weak areas in the squad. A must for me is a 20 goal a season striker. then 2 because and a new number one GK with Ikeme as the back up.




15 May 2017 08:44:23
So here is how I see I believe that Lambert was only ever a stop gap because he was the best of a bad bunch at that time. in that there wasn't much in the way of alternatives and we couldn't keep Walter Zenga any longer. they at that point had written the season offf as a learning curve and just needed someone to get us over the line and keep our championship survival. now there are more available he's on his way out the door.


1.) 15 May 2017 15:29:18
Let's face it, there has been no press release from the club so no-one knows if PL is staying or going. And we know less about the possible replacement selection, best just to wait for an official announcement which will put us all out of our misery, or maybe not.

2.) 15 May 2017 15:39:39
From where I'm standing Jeff Shi is a puppet controlled by the hierarchy in HQ back in China. How much longer will he want to put up with looking like an arse and an unbelievable at that? ⚽️👍😉.



13 May 2017 23:14:20
Whos in the 75% of fans that want Lambert to stay? Most I speak to want him replaced providing the replacement is a decent one.


1.) 14 May 2017 00:12:15
I am one.

2.) 14 May 2017 00:45:08
You think he's the man to take us to the premier league then Wooly Wolf? Happy with what he's achieved in the 6 months? Liked his style of football? And his tactical ability to transform games when needed?

People that in my oppinion want him to stay are those that are scared we will keep sacking managers and there isn't any one better. Truth be told he's done below average and kept us up just about.

Each to their own. but I'm not a fan of his. never liked the bloke and has been poor since he left Norwich.

3.) 14 May 2017 07:49:47
PL must have gone. He's had no statement of support amongst all this drama from his reverred leaders! It would be an impossible environment to work in now. He wouldn't be able to believe anything he was told, let alone trust any of the hierarchy! The problem is can we the fans? It doesn't look good does it! I'd like to see Marco Silva in, but even he only has a track record of shortish stays wherever he's been. Maybe that's the future?! ⚽️👍😉.

4.) 14 May 2017 08:10:58
It has not been a good six months. Apart from the games when Helder was up for it. I think PL had doubts about whether the Mendes boys were really up for it and there were definitely times when Cav, Tex and even Saiss were not up for it. Silvio looked decent but is it just a coincidence that he is fit for the last couple of games before his contract is up. Lambert has at least tried everyone out including kids and even tried some weird combinations like Saville at left back. But the bottom line is that with just one or two exceptions the players were either too old, too young, didn't care, injured, recovering form after injury or not good enough. I don't know if PL was offered money in January but I think he decided the players he wanted would not be available and that anyway his squad was too big. So he was going to wait till the summer. That was a mistake if he wanted to keep his job. His football was dire because his players were rubbish. Fosun don't care that he could end up with a squad of seventy or that kids were being prepared for the future they want decent TV performances and results. Two different cultures which had little chance of meeting up. So it looks like the show moves on, but who is going to get the time to tidy up this cra*p and build a team. Even Wagner had half a season before this season started.

Costa and Cav were already here long before Lambert. He screwed himself out of a job by buy8ng yet another winger rather than a goalscoring striker! For me he's on borrowed time. as soon as season ends hel be gone what ever our league podition! He's hated by most fans I speak to a lot were not happy about his appointment in first place send our current position justifies just that. he's taken us backwards from Zenga not forwards!

Too close to the end of the season. any manager coming in would take 2-3 games to find their feet. Games we simply don't have enough of. I agree any other time and he'd of been sacked by now!
