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.

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?

Wolf in the wood

1.) 02 Feb 2017 13:32:55
That would be some signing.!


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


7.) 02 Feb 2017 22:18:19
Norwich chief exc Jez moxey has resigned after falling out with Delia smith didn't take long for them 2 get rid took us 15yrs

Iorfa to West Ham on fox sports.

Wolf in the wood

1.) 31 Aug 2016 11:28:45
It's only speculation not a fact!


2.) 31 Aug 2016 11:29:13
How definite is that? They've been tracking him for a few weeks now. Rumours they were offering £6m.


3.) 31 Aug 2016 11:32:35
If we let Iorfa leave I will be very disappointed and it will put a right dampener on the joy so far in the transfer window for a small little- and especially if we let him leave for a small little club like West Ham. Hoping he has got his head screwed on right and can see that Wolves are a bigger club and are going places and will surpass Hammers in the next year or two by some distance.


4.) 31 Aug 2016 11:43:02
Stuff on twitter suggesting a loan/ opt to buy move to WHU. They seem quite excited about it. Maybe the interest is why Iofra has been off his best lately. WHU fans noted that Stearman has joined us too, freeing up a defender.

I know we've been harsh on Iorfa the last few weeks. But he's held down his England u21 spot and has interest from the Premier.


5.) 31 Aug 2016 11:47:12
DAS I know you joking! West Ham have sold 52,000 season tickets!


6.) 31 Aug 2016 15:48:27
If it's a loan with an option to buy, they will soon send him back unless he can miraculously develop the positional sense that is clearly missing at the moment.

Ok you crazy wolf pack. What's our strongest line up now?

Wolf in the wood

1.) 01 Sep 2016 17:00:21
Ignoring injuries and a little imagination, on current form,

Ikeme
Doc, Batth, Coady, B-J
Teixeira, Price/ Oniangue, John, Costa
Cavaleiro, Bod

Subs
Lonergan
Iorfa, Saville
Price/ Oniangue, Edwards, Mason, Wallace


But then we still have Silvio, Williamson, Zyro, Graham and Dicko to return.


2.) 01 Sep 2016 17:49:35
Ikeme
Iorfa Batth Stearman B-J/ Doc
Texiera/ John Oniangue Saiss Cavilerio
Dicko Bodvarsson/ Gladon.


3.) 02 Sep 2016 09:28:21
If all the new signings live up to the hope we hold and injured players back

Ikeme
Doherty or Iorfa - Baath - Stearman - CBJ
Tex - Saiss - Prince
Graham - Dicko or Dadi - Cavaleiro

To then have all of these left to choose from is crazy
Lonergan, Iorfa, Hause, Silvio, Price, John, Costa, Dicko or Dadi, Mason, Zyro, Wallace, Saville, Evans, Gladon, Price, Coady

For the first time in a long time we have 2 players for every position, more in some cases.


4.) 04 Sep 2016 21:01:39
Ikeme
Silvio (Iorfa) Baath Stearman CBJ
Saiss Oniangue (Coady)
Costa Cavaleiro Mason
Bodvarsson.

Guys I've only just registered on here but have been reading your posts for a while. My view on the transfer targets is this. All of the targets are broadcast by the papers not by wolves. I'm pretty sure the club is working hard to get the right players for zen gas jigsaw. Let's trust in our new owners and see what happens. At the moment it's fun and exciting.

We have taken 2 forwards from the u23 squad in bright and ronan. It would make sense to bring in a forward until the end of the season so that the squad isn't short. Lambert is still looking at moving players out so be patient

Dom Dwyer is on a plain apparently and West Ham aren't interested in iorfa because they are trying to sign a Madrid defender.
