Is there any news on bonatinis injury in the build up to the second goal. I'm in skiathos on hols and have seen the highlights it looked an horrendous tackle. Worry of a red card.

I'm hearing big willy is injured. Does anyone know anything.

Wolf in the wood

Yes done his hamstring out for at least two weeks.


2.) 31 Aug 2017 15:51:05
Hamstring injury, out for 3 weeks or thereabouts.


3.) 31 Aug 2017 15:53:04
Wolf in the wood boly has a slight hamstring injury suffered in training. Not as bad as first feared and only out for a couple of weeks.


4.) 31 Aug 2017 15:55:58
2-3 weeks out with a pulled hammy.

Paul Franks on WM last night said that 2 Portuguese players were seen at Compton. One was Soares can't remember who the other one was.

Wolf in the wood

1.) 30 Aug 2017 08:45:39
Soares is Brazilian isn't he?


2.) 30 Aug 2017 09:20:35
Tim Spiers was on the twitter saying Porto rejected a loan move for Soares.
That's magic!


3.) 30 Aug 2017 09:38:45
We have recruited well over the transfer period but I can't help feeling we will end up panic buying the last couple of players. £10 million for Hugill is being floated around. Really hope we have firm targets in mind rather than over paying for sub standard players.


4.) 30 Aug 2017 09:58:13
When you've billionaire owners, a quality coach and a super agent, there's no panicking! Just chill and let them work their magic 👍.


5.) 30 Aug 2017 10:07:16
Well said paul tamworth can only be positive since fosun tookover. I said pretty much the same this time last year and I got slated. negative thoughts only puts yourself feeling down. we wolves are going places so as yazz sang the only way is up😎.


6.) 30 Aug 2017 10:20:51
Well well well.

The high risk signings are:
Hugill- one season scored 13 more of a target man
Rhodes- can he rediscover the form he had?
Wells- same as Rhodes hamstring injuries
Gayle- getting older but worth 20 goals issues with attitude and injuries
All those players you are looking at between 8m-18m.
I hope the number crunchers at Molineux have there calculators today.
It is probably best to take all reports on and judge on football rather than the past though.
I'm sure Mendes has a couple of aces up his sleeve.


7.) 30 Aug 2017 10:26:05
I agree it doesn't make sense moving on 3 strikers unless there's a plan in place to replace them. Even Zyro is being talked about as going on loan. Leaves only Bonatini and to a lesser extent Cav as players who could pull it off at CF.

What's Kevin Doyle doing these days?


8.) 30 Aug 2017 10:58:56
I think the deals are pretty much done and will be all announced at some point in next 24 hours. Got a feeling it will be Julan, Barnes and the lad from Lisbon in midfield.


9.) 30 Aug 2017 11:25:22
How would Tim know.


10.) 30 Aug 2017 11:30:05
I remember them saying 3 year plan and we're they won't to be in 10 years. how long they been here?


11.) 30 Aug 2017 12:14:58
Plenty of teams around us linked with strikers and all we are linked with is? Not much the proven goal scorers will be gone again and we will just panic buy would have been better iff keeping hold of dicko until someone signed the dotted line . think its a must that we need to get gayle or afobe.


12.) 30 Aug 2017 12:32:55
The only panic is coming from the fans!

Chill out.


13.) 30 Aug 2017 13:06:15
The transfer market especially acquiring important pieces of the jigsaw i.e goal scorers is like a game of chess you have to wait for pieces to fall into place before you show your hand and make your move. stay calm don't panic Fosun will deliver.


14.) 30 Aug 2017 14:35:18
All I know is that it has gone VERY quiet on Twitter, hopefully something big is brewing. Waiting on news from Tim and Timmer.

I think it's time for mr lambert to play a settled 11 and stop messing about changing it all the time. Put your best team out and challenge the rest to get in it.

Wolf in the wood

1.) 05 Feb 2017 09:31:46
Play captain Batth regularly.


2.) 05 Feb 2017 09:58:56
Problem is we've won two cup ties against Prem opposition playin Saville and Evans when we all know their not good enough and neither can lace Priceys boots. Price should of played yesterday and Time to put Dicko out to graze, Top centre half, centre mid and 20 goal a season striker required in the summer.


3.) 05 Feb 2017 11:57:03
Evans and Saville are such poor players. In reality, you should only choose between Saiss, Price and Edwards and toss the other two off. With Edwards basically a number 10, we desperately need a quality midfielder.

I'm personally not that concerned with the striker position as Dicko should eventually come good with the right service. As I've said before, bringing Sako back would be the best thing for Dicko but PL seems to like Weimann now.


4.) 05 Feb 2017 13:25:35
I said about Evans and Saville last week and it was like I'd said Steve Bull was awful! Saiss should play for sure and I'm one of the few that likes coady in the centre as his work rate is brilliant allowing dangerous to get forward. Agree with Dicko he looks like he can't do it anymore. May be worth giving weimann a go through the centre when cav is back.


5.) 05 Feb 2017 16:55:47
I am not convinced about Cav, he disappears far more often than he turns it on and his final delivery is poor. I agree with wavid - bring back Sako who is proven at this level. Regards central midfield, I have never rated Saville since he has been here and agree he needs to move on. We look so much better with Price in the XI.


6.) 05 Feb 2017 18:05:08
Please just shut up about Sacko!


7.) 05 Feb 2017 18:21:46
Shyted, we all have an opinion. No need to be abusive just because you do not agree.


8.) 05 Feb 2017 18:02:16
I like Coady, too, and i'm kind of hoping Marshall can adapt to midfield so both can play at the same time. I just can't believe PL would be stupid enough start with 2 league one players (Saville, Evans) in the most important part of the pitch. Price isn't the answer, either.


9.) 05 Feb 2017 18:32:56
I see on 'Wolves newsnow' it's being said that Burton A was a reality check. Well the check is, we need quality strikers that do that, strike. Apart from a Mason goal a few games ago, the pot has been empty across the board with our current crop. Does anyone remember KJ banging on about trying to get C Woods to the Mol and plenty of folk saying we don't want him here.

Well, we could do with him now couldn't we? Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't he the leading scorer in the championship at the mo?! His goals have put Leeds up amongst the front runners.

Sorry for banging on about it, but we need quality strikers and we are in the situation fortunately where our owners are extremely wrathful. So we should have aid up and got a couple of quality goal scorers. Costa was just one piece of the jigsaw! Great player. The ambition will only be realised by adding quality to the team. Ask Chelsea, Man United, and any of the best teams. 👍😉⚽️.


10.) 05 Feb 2017 18:51:25
Toss Weimann and Cav off in the summer and bring back Sako. It's what we all want anyway.


11.) 05 Feb 2017 19:15:20
Again I completely disagree. I think Sako has had his time in the championship and I believe he needs more game time in order to succeed.

I believe Cav needs more time as does Bodvasson.


12.) 05 Feb 2017 21:39:54
Can I just point out that we were drawing the game 1-1 when Saville went off and we'll in the game. It was after he went off that Burton started dominating the midfield. Just saying.


13.) 05 Feb 2017 20:41:37
I agree with Bodvarsson. His workrate is faultless and I think that both he and Dicko are faultless in their dedication but all the running they do is largely detrimental to them scoring due to the way we are set up. They barely get clear cut chances and are snatching at them because they are desparate to score. I have a lot of sympathy.

However, there does come a point where the strikers need to get goals. I would not look to move them on though as they do contribute and hopefully one will off their backside will get them going. Confidence has always been key to any successful striker.

My beef with Cav is that half the time, he does not look interested. He may have all the skill in the world but if he is not prepared to work for the team and be a showpony by trying to beat a defender three times, with no end product, then I would rather he left.

Its a fine balance between ability and a team who merely put a shift in as Merlin used to say, but I know Wolves fans at least appreciate the effort and largely would want to see that.


14.) 05 Feb 2017 21:10:55
Look, the point about our strikers not scoring is due to the midfield. If you were to have Price, Saville or Evans feeding you, you ain't going to get many chances to score. Believe me, Dicko is fine, it's just the midfield as usual that sit too deep that's the problem. He originally thrived from Sako and McDonald but the current crop couldn't find a cutting pass if it jumped up and hit them.

I hate it when people go on about signing another striker. Look at the Villa/ McCormack problem, . We don't need yet another striker, just a couple of decent players who are able to make the transition from defence to attack. I wish people would understand this before they spout the 'why didn't we buy Rhodes' crap. Do you really think Rhodes would score 20 goals a season from the likes of our shitty central midfield? Exactly.

Judge Dicko when we have quality in the middle. At the moment, it's pretty unfair to write him off due to the inability of those behind him. It's also a pity we got rid of McDonald who was the only player who could hit a 30 yard pass to feet.


15.) 05 Feb 2017 21:41:41
Historically, Wolves have always had good creative midfielders (Hibbitt, Cook, Burke, Thomas, Emblen, Marsden, Huddlestone, McDonald) . Now Compare Coady, Price, Saville, Edwards and Evans lol.


16.) 05 Feb 2017 22:44:58
I don't disagree with your comment at all wavid. I like both Dicko and Bodvarsson and maybe it's time to actually pair them from the start and play what seems to be an old fashioned 442. At the moment our only creativity is from the wing, so let's utilise it and play two holding midfielders to protect the back four, which frankly needs all the protection it can get.

People forget that we have two wingers to come back with Graham and Zyro; Zyro of course can also give us another option up front. So we do have strength to come in those positions.

I don't really like the fact that the team is constantly changing, but given that we are going nowhere this season, if Lambert is giving everyone gametime to sift out who needs to go in the summer, I will accept that. But creativity from the middle should be key alongside the centre half situation.


17.) 05 Feb 2017 23:45:00
That's the whole problem, tho. All opposition know that to stop us, all you have to do is cut our supply to the wide men. There is a constant hole in the middle of the park where Coady, Price, Saville or Evans don't have the quality to fill. They try and cover this by getting Edwards to run around like a headless chicken, but it's basically like having only 10 men on the pitch every game.


18.) 06 Feb 2017 00:24:10
There is something seriously wrong if you have to field a team with 2 midfielders to protect the back 4. A decent defender shouldn't need 'protecting'! Considering Saiss was bought for this role, anyway, it begs the question why we continually go back to Saville, Price and Evans. I sincerely hope PL gives Saiss a chance because he's a far better player than any of those 3.


19.) 06 Feb 2017 09:46:44
Once again none of our strikers are or have been striking for how long now? They don't have the same composure in front of goal that say Costa has. I don't deny the work rate, but there has to be an end product!

Our midfield could be better I agree, but Edwards has been our saviour and a revelation so far this season. We can't continually depend on him and costa though can we? We should have invested in a quality striker is all I'm saying. We won't make top six now. I was hopeful if we had won the at BA! Well I can be optimistic can't I? ⚽️👍😉.


20.) 06 Feb 2017 15:23:33
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.

Drogba is a free agent now. He will definitely get goals. We can afford him so why not?

2.) 02 Feb 2017 13:37:33
It's rumoured he's going back to Chelsea as a coach


3.) 02 Feb 2017 15:04:51
Essein also free agent.


4.) 02 Feb 2017 15:44:47
Why not go in for him as a player/ coach? The same could be an idea for Keane for those sentimentalists, like me. Their effectiveness on the pitch may be on the wane but their experience and presence in what is a young dressing room would be invaluable.


5.) 02 Feb 2017 15:48:39
I was thinking the same thing, but with Lampard


6.) 02 Feb 2017 21:23:44
Good thinking guys but Lampard has officially retired as of today. But the others you mention are great calls

So the team is back for pre season on Monday with 3 new additions. Nino will be assessing the whole squad and we should expect the revolving molineux door to start in the next couple of weeks or so. Despite all of the rumours we have been fairly quiet early on so expect an influx of players before Austria.

I wonder who will be tasked with moving the players onto other clubs to make room for the inevitable new arrivals. We will need to sell as many as possible to stay within ffp guidelines but who would command decent fees. Edwards and coady maybe. Not much else!

Wolf in the wood

Bath, Iorfa, Price, Evans, Dicko, Glaydon, Hause, Docherty, saville, coady, Edwards, everyone else can stay.

As a Wolves fan and a Scotsman, my God, how I'd love to see Batth captain England.

Oh yes, come on Gareth pick up the phone. 😎😆😆😆😆😎.


 

 

11 May 2017 20:26:39
Fosun, if you read our posts please take note. In England, if you want the best out of your football team, you allow your manager to manage. If you have an experienced agent on board you get him to earn his keep and negotiate for the manager. Otherwise you will see empty stands and watch your agent get richer and your profits get smaller. Come on look at the models of all of the successful clubs. An agent doesn't run the show he works for the manager who runs the show. This is soooooo frustrating.

Wolf in the wood

After the last game I was ready to just forget about Wolves for a little bit. Just have a few weeks with no major news and enjoy the end of the Premier League. Now all this has blown up. I just want it sorted quickly whatever they decide to do.


2.) 11 May 2017 23:08:41
Personally I think it will be mid next week before we hear what's going to happen. I let you work out why that might be? . If PL stays then his targets should be a priority as I think they would definitely improve our team. 👍⚽️😉.


3.) 12 May 2017 08:41:24
Fosun, like all Chinese companies, have no respect for their international management teams, not just in foitball. They are mostly business illiterates and want weak yes men (no women please) who don't chalkenge. Now it looks Lambert will walk out and a Mendes stooge will come in. Soon there will be banners saying: 'Fosun Out'.


 

 

30 Apr 2017 15:20:13
I'm looking forward to the close season. It can't come quick enough. Remember what Lambert did at Norwich forget little Aston and Blackburn he was shafted at both places. He is a good manager and now it's his turn to sort out this mess and put his stamp on the squad. Yes we may lose costa but then again we may not. If we keep him great. If we lose him then we get an extra 20 mill to spend. I would expect a target man like Abrahams and a centre half and 2 midfielders to be acquired and possibly a full back. I agree that he already knows his targets and hopefully he will change the system to a 4-4-2.

Wolf in the wood

1.) 01 May 2017 08:30:49
The reason we don't play 442 is because we are a team of midfielders the CMs are needed to help the CBs and our best players are on the wing so we get 4231.


2.) 01 May 2017 23:32:43
So when we play the ball down the sides for dicko n bod (whichever is playing the lone striker role) they have to check back and lose momentum because there is no other forward in the box and the midfield aren't mobile enough to give any options.

Average of 2 points a game = 92 points at the end of the season. That's good enough for promotion. We do need another striker and centre midfielder to create competition for places and make everyone try to improve to get or keep their places.

I watched the game too. Back 3 of boly Miranda and bennet looked good. Midfield of Douglas Saiss neves and doc and a front 3 of cav dicko and someone covering for costa ( but not mason) and we will be good for top 6. If we can sign a forward that can improve on dickos movement then fine. But the others ain't good enough.
