Am I right in thinking we are the second highest scorers in the league - and without a 'striker' too?
A few of the teams that we have played late will surprise quite a few this year, so out recent results are much more valuable than the actual performances. I think Bristol City will not be far away.
Keep it going Nuno, it feels fab to be a Wolves fan!

We mustn't become complacent and think we can just turn up and turn teams over! We have to treat all teams with respect and assume they will beat us if we don't concentrate and presume we're going to lose if we don't. Just getting a bit worried that we will be stuffed soon if any of that attitude creeps into our game! Sheffield United are going to be a tough test and I wouldn't be surprised to see Clarke score against us.! ⚽️😉👍.


2.) 25 Sep 2017 17:35:01
Yes but Bristol City are the biggest scorers so guess which game helped put both teams up there!


3.) 25 Sep 2017 21:08:17
No they're not. Leeds are top scorers on 17. Us, Bristol city and hull have 15.


4.) 25 Sep 2017 21:36:31
Wolvescoast u for real . u always respect a team but never do u go on to the pitch thinking u are going to get beat .


5.) 26 Sep 2017 07:57:37
Wazza, of course you don't. However, I doubt Crystal Palace thought they would come away with a win. Even Woy Wogers, thought it was going to be a hard game for them. Roughly translated meaning they had little chance of getting anything from it! I suppose you could say he was being realistic. All I mean is we've done great and that will only continue if we don't become complacent and assume all we have to do is turn up! ⚽️😉👍.

When had the manager said that wolvescoast
Only you have said, that plus your usual negetive comments.


7.) 27 Sep 2017 18:05:09
Seems like we're looking at someone to add to the forward line from the free agent market.


8.) 30 Sep 2017 19:21:50
Well done lads bring on the Villa can't wait I hope Terry is fit to play remember him kissing his premiership badge and laughing at the South Bank whilst playing for Chelsea you won't be laughing soon boy!

I've been told that Michael Mancienne is seeking a move away from Forest.
He's being played at full-back and isn't too happy about it - or having to wait for his wages for most of the season.
May not be a bad Summer move?

Macienne was originally with us. I'd rather go with someone from Portugal to be honest.


2.) 02 Apr 2017 19:19:35
I agree Wolves011. We should not be going back for old players. Eyes forward for new blood. Please no more talk of Sako, Mancienne, Afobe etc.


3.) 03 Apr 2017 08:56:36
I never rated him to be honest.


4.) 03 Apr 2017 19:55:34
Wolves011, Do you want to be more specific or is it just any random person from Portugal.

Thats equally as stupid as saying our recruitment policy should be to only sign ginger kids.

Bonkers comment.

I hear that the Albion have had their application for terracing rejected by the local council.
A council spokesman has said it was rejected unanimously as it faced the pitch!

Just watching the rugby on TV.
Swansea play at the same stadium as Ospreys, who are playing right now.
That pitch looks terrible - and they still have an hour of rugby to play!
Get your wellies on lads!

Swansea play at the Liberty stadium, Ospreys play 3 miles from my Grandaughters house outside Llanelli.


2.) 14 Jan 2018 08:19:56
Sorry but the Ospreys DO play at the Liberty Stadium!


3.) 14 Jan 2018 11:20:36
You can see I know feck all about Rugby then, apologies and I stand corrected.


4.) 14 Jan 2018 12:00:56
They do play at Liberty stadium and lesser games in Bridgend.

Can anyone remember the name of the guy that used to frequent the old South Bank (when we only had two sides) and he would 'book' and 'send off' the referee and linesmen?
We were talking about him on Saturday and no-one could remember his name.
Cheers.

exeterwolf

1.) 08 Jan 2018 10:31:07
His name was Dicky Westwood, I can see him now on reserve match days dashing down the south bank steps waving a giant handkerchief shouting out ‘Corner ref’. On cup matches he wore a sting necklace of alternate black puddings and oranges aka wolves colours. At halftime he would chuck his cap down and play football with the lads. He was indeed a great character, many years ago I spoke to him at Wednesfield when he worked on the dustbins. There are no characters about now like Dicky god bless him.


2.) 08 Jan 2018 10:41:36
I remember Brian from an earlier era who used to stand by the scoreboard in the Waterloo Road stand and book the referee. He lived in Park Village somewhere I think.


3.) 08 Jan 2018 10:56:22
i remember in the 60-70's a chap on the North Bank (right side, half way up) doing the same. He also booked the ref himself. A fairly heavy and red faced chap. Same guy? He would have had a field day with the ref for the Swansea game.


4.) 08 Jan 2018 11:40:36
Yes I remember Brian used to stick his fingers up to passing cars as well always to wear a bobble hat. lol.


5.) 08 Jan 2018 21:35:49
Remember him well big bald guy in a gray mack.

football to implode within 5 years!

this simply can't go on.
the transfer fees, the wages, everything monetarily to do with the game, is just obscene!

exeterwolf

1.) 25 Jul 2017 07:19:04
Football has been same for years Exeter so not sure what you are on about, rio was sold to Leeds in 1999 for 18 mil, in 2002 sold to manu for 30 mil, prize for wining league in 2002 was less than 9 mil, prize money for wining league 2016 was 38 mil and most expensive defender purchased is 54 mil, tv deal for next 3 years is 5.5 billion and footie growing in Asia and north America, hopefully wolves can jump on this wave!


2.) 25 Jul 2017 07:38:22
What I find hard to believe is that all this money is swilling around in football and that most certainly includes the payments to players and yet nobody seems to complain, yet bankers and top industrialists who generate wealth are regarded as rich pariahs who should be taxed to the hilt and even better sacked for exploiting the system. Who is paying all this money, Joe Soap in the stands week after week, buying the merchandise and watching on the T. V. Exploitation or what?


3.) 25 Jul 2017 09:49:50
Wollabby,
Yes there is one hell of a lot of money in football now. But, there are complaints about it everywhere. Football people are taxed in the same way as bankers, top industrialists and Joe Soap. Jus look how many football people are up in court for tax avoidance. It's just that the richer you are the greedier you get and generally you look for ways of paying less tax. Joe Soap can't do that of course as he is on PAYE and struggling to survive.


4.) 25 Jul 2017 11:16:04
Players in US sports, "football', baseball, ice hockey and basketball all make more money than footballers in England. What is the problem? let's face it the global audience for association football '"soccer" is infinitely greater. There will be no imploding any time soon. let's have our club and our city on the wave!


5.) 25 Jul 2017 12:24:16
Think we are agreeing Deep Throat. What I may not have said clearly enough is that it is poor old Joe Soap who is funding all this excess and I don't think it's right. It's not just football other sports as well. I know football is a short career but to earn (oops sorry I mean be paid) 5 times the average person's yearly income in a week is obscene and it's just for entertainment.


6.) 25 Jul 2017 12:49:55
That was said 5 years ago, and 5 years before that. Transfer fees will only increase as long revenues continue to grow. It's not that amazing transfer fees have doubled since the TV revenues doubled in the last TV deal.

With the growth of online streaming football the money will keep rolling in. That's why there has been a big crackdown on illegal streaming.

To be honest I've no problem with the wages footballers earn. Billions of pound are paid into football each year, and it's only right that the talent get a large proportion of the money.


7.) 25 Jul 2017 12:43:25
My dads been saying that since pretty much the start of the prem. Can't remember who but someone went for 10m and from that moment on he's believed it.

Whilst there is a demand and whilst that demand is growing at such a speed it's only going one way. Football is too big and always will be. Imagine what people would do without it? Going to games, watching games, commenting on forums, twitter etc.

Saw Leeds prices yesterday and it's a disgrace but they'll still sell them. Demand for even the championship now is huge.


8.) 25 Jul 2017 22:44:59
Excited - I did get out my name (s) today to big gasps. But relegation battle looms - too many inexperienced foreign players at Wolves. League One next.

Its hard at this stage to say exactly who will be coming.
However there is going to be a lot of off-loading - there always is for the newly promoted sides, even if it is loans.
It does show how far we have come though, when we can talk of such high calibre players.
I think one thing is for sure though under of new 'regime', there will be no signs of compassion to the squad players. If they do not cut it, then they will be gone.
I see Nuno as the kind of guy that knows what he wants and I see Fosun as the kind of organisation that will back their 'expert' if he continues to succeed.
If Neves stays (and I pray that he does) then with a few key additions there is no reason why the bulk of this squad could not succeed very well in the PL.
We have created hundreds of chances this season and probably taken a lower percentage of them than we would need to in the PL. For me that tells me that we are solid and creative, but we lack a couple of finishers.
The roller coaster of the transfer market begins already!
Proud to be a Wolves fan!

well, with the masterclass Nuno has pulled off in converting Coady to a rounded, influential sweeper, we could well fill a whole host of positions with squad members.
So, there's another question.
Who could be converted Coady-style to other positions in the team?
Interesting!

exeterwolf

{Ed001's Note - how is it a masterclass in converting Coady? In Liverpool's youth teams he played there anyway. He played defence and midfield, but more often defence.}

It's laughable it really is.
In 16+17 season (latest figures available) Wolves were 12th in the table for fees paid to agents.
You guessed it, both Villa and Derby were above us (Villa paying way over £5m to our £1.2m) .

Points make prizes.
Still 7.5 points ahead of third with a game in hand with 11 games to go!
Come on boys!

I'm always cynical of big 'names' to promoted teams, let's face it they have nothing to lose (except for a few million pounds wages) .
I'd be much happier with a few Jota, Neves, Cav types. Players that have huge talent, come to prove themselves, do not have the big 'I am' attitude, and have a proper team ethic.
We will see.
One thing is for sure, we are now an attractive proposition.
Fingers crossed for tomorrow!

For me, I don't think they will chop and change that much - there is such a good feeling between this squad of players.
Yes there will be additions that offer strength and competition in areas, and there will be a group that are let go (sale or loan if cannot be sold) .
I reckon just four BIG signings in addition to Jota.

The wonder-goal apart, what is really impressive about Neves is his appetite for the ball and his judgement on his passes. I didn't see one wasted pass last night, not one. That's some going in a Championship match!
A nod too to the Jota goal. A fabulous pass by Boly and a brilliant, calm finish.
We made derby look like a B-team, and they are no B-team.
amazing team, amazing squad, amazing management!
