Out of the names being mentioned I'd have to go with Paul Lambert. He did good job at Norwich. Got them promoted from league 1, then promoted again the season after and kept them in the Premier League. His record at Villa wasn't good but Villa had some underlying issues which saw off quite a few managers, most notably drastic cuts to the budget, which he won't have to deal with at Wolves. As for his stint at Blackburn I think we saw on Saturday that that is another club with off field issues which can also effect performance on the pitch.

So Gianluca Zambrotta visited Compton. Shame he isn't five years younger and wanting to finish his career at Wolves.

Where have you heard this?

2.) 26 Aug 2016 09:24:39
He was posing in a photo with Zenga. I think the official Wolves twitter posted it. Most likely just visiting as a friend of Zenga. I think he manages in India so maybe just popping in for some advice and experience.

3.) 26 Aug 2016 10:07:04
He was here for pre season with his Indian pl team from deli was amazing pick 2 Italian legends both at wolves.

I reluctantly voted to remain in the EU. I don't like either option really, but I felt being part of market without trade barriers was better than being outside. If the remain side do win, I hope it causes enough of a shock in Europe to make some real change.


1.) 23 Jun 2016 12:41:46
Knowin what u know now about the eu would u of voted to join? If the answers no why have u voted remain? Each to their own but I've voted out.

2.) 23 Jun 2016 12:59:54
I have voted out, don't want to be told what to do by a majority European elected government who we now nothing about which keeps taking but gives nothing back, need to get out now
Reminds me of a certain Mr. MORGAN at Wolves were he keeps taking and gives nothing back.
Coming out of Europe and New Owners for my beloved WOLVES are my 2 wishes.
One can only hope.

3.) 23 Jun 2016 14:07:21
clive if you voted remain but want a shock to the eu wasnt that a bit of a wasted vote, you do relise we are chained to the eu market,5th biggest economy on the planet'who do you rreally think gains from us staying in, not us but the failing states of europe'think bigger picture, look beyond to the other markets we will be excluded from because of eu meddling.

4.) 23 Jun 2016 14:09:30
bigwolf, if they were elected by the populace it wouldn't be so bad, you could vote them out'but they ain't are they, its all done behind closed doors.

5.) 23 Jun 2016 15:28:05
Don't want another emigrant coming here unless he's some mega rich Chinese intent on buying wolves and doing an LCFC with us
Had enough, I'm out.

6.) 23 Jun 2016 16:30:27
Doog2. I think you mean immigrant. Emigrants are the people leaving this country.

No vote is a wasted vote. The one's who have the ability to vote and don't are the ones wasting it.

I did give it serious thought over the last few days. I, like I suspect many, want to trade freely with Europe without all the other nonsense. But if we leave we will still have to pay to access that same market and abide by the same rules. It's better to be there and have influence others, and where possible veto any decisions.

7.) 23 Jun 2016 17:01:28
The veto we have Clive ain't worth the breath that 1st mentioned it in europe.
Anyway enough politics, it's a football site so I'm told.

8.) 23 Jun 2016 17:11:22
Thats the problem we have NO influence none. They give us 60% of our laws now how does that work when we didn't vote for them and the laws usuaully do not suit our needs.
The system is broken it has never been updated, They want us in as other countries want out and if we go others will follow for sure, Holland for one.
I voted out it is the only thing they will listen to. Trade or no trade it is not worth what we have to pay in and actually restricts who we can trade with in the rest of the world, how clever is that?

9.) 23 Jun 2016 17:59:58
Britain and Influence in the EU? 😂😂😂 Were looked upon like something on the bottom of your shoe!

10.) 23 Jun 2016 18:31:24
You are right jimmyjones. But at least it was a different discussion to somebody having a source telling them Joe Bloggs is buying Wolves and then never happening.

By the way, has anybody else heard about this billionaire called Joseph Bloggs buying the club? A source close to the club says it will definitely happen in the next 10 years.

11.) 23 Jun 2016 21:03:46
I voted tactically to leave. I believe our best interests are in a by narrow REMAIN vote. This will be a yellow card to the EU. Reform, or we demand another referendum within five years. I assume the bookies are right about a large remain vote, therefore I voted leave to do my bit in securing a narrow main vote.

12.) 23 Jun 2016 22:23:28
Well done deep throat I agree.

13.) 23 Jun 2016 23:19:13
13% of our laws are EU generated not 60%. Veto is worth paper it is written on as has been used successfully in past and could be used in future if we remain. fastest growing economy in Europe has been achieved in EU and through access to single market All respected economic forecasts say Brexit will damage economy. Migration has brought huge economic benefits to the country and many of our institutions, most notably the NHS would collapse without immigration. Days of Empire and Ruling the Waves are long. We do however still sit a centre of the financial world with the City of London retaining its pre-eminence. Why jeapordise all we have gained through past involvement in the single market for some out-moded idea of past glories. We are a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural success story and we should all be proud of that and recognise that we are what we are because of our long history of immigration. I voted Remain and fear for our future if the result goes otherwise.

14.) 24 Jun 2016 07:02:16
Oh Scottish eloquently presented and I agree with every word. But what chance is there arguing against the propaganda of the popular media and Boris. We've walked into this with oureyes wide shut, but I guess that's democracy.

15.) 27 Jun 2016 14:30:26
It's the bureaucracy, the cost, the gravy train for some and the unfair voting system. 28 countries with equal voting rights irrespective of their financial committment. 3 billion euros wasted every year just because the parliament moves to Strasborg for a few days every month, just to keep the French happy. I'd be happy to stay in the EU if there was a complete overhaul but that won't happen. It's a house of cards now.

So Paycare are our new back of the shirt sponsor. Does that mean we can expect rumours of them buying Wolves?


1.) 14 Jun 2016 14:18:41
No rumours about PayCare coming. Non-profit organisation. Semi charity I presume. What they are doing on the flip side of a Wolves shirt with Money Shop on the front is a strange one to me.

Maybe it's Moxey's mea culpa? What next, the Salvation Army?

2.) 14 Jun 2016 20:49:56
What next. Morgan on the front of the shorts for shafting us and Moxey on the back of them . and I will leave it to you to fill that one in.

3.) 14 Jun 2016 22:32:57
oh yeh, paycare/ money shop mash up.

4.) 14 Jun 2016 23:10:33
Yeah, drop the care and drop the shop and you've got what moxey wants PAYMONEY!



11 May 2016 13:29:43
Wolves are being bought by a consortium involving Ding Lei, Glenn Hughes, Robbie Keane, Kevin Muscat, John Grayken, Paul Allen, JLR and a couple of unknown Indians. They are taking out a £100 loan from the Moneyshop to fund the deal. Bob Laslett is fronting the deal, even though he doesn't know it yet.

A press conference is being called anywhere from tomorrow until 2018.

Geewolf, keep an eye out for an Adams Tour bus pulling up outside Molineux. Glenn's driving so watch out. You know what rockstars are like.

And if that does happen I promise never to post again.


1.) 11 May 2016 14:08:59
And Moxey will be chairman and get his own statue. It will be animated, like the Stay Puft Marshmallow man, and sort out people selling tat merchandise outside the club that hasn't got Moneyshop on.

2.) 11 May 2016 19:11:16
I'd come in on that deal, but too many chiefs and not enough Indians for my liking.

I agree with 1877stlukes. Whilst I’d love Costa to stay, part of me thinks he deserves to be in the Premier. These players are only one bad tackle from having their careers ended. Just look at Coleman in the Ireland-Wales game. He will have a long road back to playing football again. I certainly would have no problem with Costa leaving to play in the Premier. All I’d ask is that all parties go about it in a good professional manner, i. e. the player not going on strike, and the club not holding out for some ridiculous amount of money.

I hope our next home kit is a proper old gold and not a continuing deeper shade of orange it has become.

I hate to tell you this PT, but Ted died.

I must be psychic. I knew someone would put the League One argument in there.

Uncle Kenny took a club that was on it's knees and managed to not only get promoted straight away, but with record points total as well.

And PT, I agree with you that we need to be promoted. So here’s the deal. You can complain about Paul Lambert losing games as that is how you judge managers, but not his style of football, however mind numbing you find it, because as you have said the result is all that matters.

Lambert's win percentage at Wolves is 38%.

Interestingly, having listened to Boro fans they too were mind-numbingly bored by Karanka’s tactics. Of course I can’t deny facts and Karanka does have a high win ratio.

So to be clear, you are happy with negative football as long as it’s winning football. There’s nothing wrong with that at all. I’d love it if we won every game for the rest of the season one-nil.

Funny thing is, Unlce Kenny had a win ratio of 46% at Wolves.

Actually I think it is time to replace Thelwell. I'll reserve judgement on Lambert until the end of the season.

So Karanka's negative football will be ok?

Please don't get defensive. I'm just interested because you really disliked it when you perceived Jackett and Lambert as playing negatively, but you'll be happy to have Karanka who is ultra defensive.

If he did sack Lambert who would you want to make the choice to replace him. Thelwell who most fans seem to now think is useless. Shi who doesn't have a great understanding of the Championship. Or is there someone else?

It's all relative. Someone on a low paid job doesn't have thousands of people shouting obscenities at them if they make a simple honest mistake.

If Wolves sack Lambert it will be Thelwell who'll pick his replacement, and nearly everyone on here thinks he is useless. If he doesn't pick the replacement then it will be Jeff Shi who thought Zenga was a good idea.

I think we've just got to stick with Lambert for now and hope the players turn it around somehow and then have fundamental change in the summer.

Of course we could bring back Uncle Kenny to sort us out. We shouldn't have sacked him previously when Lopetegui fell through. It would be worth it just for Paul Tamworth's rant.

It's hard to judge Butti to be fair as I'm not entirely sure what he did. I know his title was General Manager but what he did day to day I never really understood. For someone of his experience I would have thought he would have a big role. But Thelwell’s job was to oversee the whole football side of Wolves whilst Zenga was in charge of the first team.

At times it looked like he was there to assist Zenga, but I would have thought a General Manager would be senior to Zenga. I know he attended the press conferences but I don’t remember him being quoted as saying anything.

I’d love to know why for years every manager we’ve had instructs our team when kicking off to kick it to a fullback, who then launches it into the corner and inevitably gives away possession. How about we try something new and keep the ball. I guess they are playing for territory, but this ain’t rugby.
