Decent cup draw.
Stay clear of the Manchester clubs and Chelsea and there's nobody to fear.


1.) 29 Jan 2019 09:50:52
It's one thing beating Liverpool in the third round but from here on teams are in it to win yes we have an easy path to round 6 but as we saw last week playing away against lower league clubs isn't straightforward

Hopefully we will dispose of Shrewsbury at the Mol but Bristol City will be as tough

For what it's worth we are favourites outside of the remaining too 6 clubs to win the cup.



01 Dec 2018 18:29:04
For me, one of the big differences this season from last, is that our wide men are just not firing and finding the net.
Jota, Cav, Douglas, even Costa, scored consistently last season and that saw us through.
We haven't had that this year. Yes the chances may be less frequent, so therefore we need to not waste them - Doc is taking them when they come.
I wonder therefore, whether we will be strengthening in the 'wide man who can score' department rather than the '20 goals a season' department this Jan.


1.) 02 Dec 2018 17:47:38
While I agree with most of your comments, I do not agree about the Doc, his work rate is very good but his final ball is poor and his finishing is bad. I know he has scored two goals and two assists but he has also missed at least six chances when he has been in on goal, In my opinion, we need two wing backs that carry a goal threat and a goal scorer, not easy to find at this stage of the season.

2.) 02 Dec 2018 17:48:15
Rather like having diarrhoea, Wolves on the slippy-slidey and need a firm wipe - bringing in 2 new central defenders and 2 new forwards.

3.) 02 Dec 2018 22:12:18
In my humble opinion Nuno will sort it given the chance! His biggest mistake was when baking the cake i.e the team, he forgot to really address the need for goal scorers and If you like getting the icing for the cake. Raul is a hard working really good footballer, we need him to play alongside a couple of quality goalscorers! We also need to strengthen the midfield and defence. Just my take on this! I do trust Nuno to get this right. Whether he will be given the time is an altogether different matter!? He’s going to have to develop a plan B! Also be more flexible and adapt accordingly to different situations! The question I guess is will he? I hope so.




18 Jul 2018 18:19:02
I like the way we are doing our business.
We're not part of the brigade that pay over inflated prices for players in their prime, only for that player to have massive expectations heaped on them and fans ready to revolt against an individual of they do not constantly perform.

Patricio aside - he was opportune given the situation at Lisbon - we have constantly acquired players with potential to perform to a system in England.
Therefore I do not see any major names over the next few weeks but definitely feel we will have one or two additions, perhaps on loan as we did with Costa, Jota, Boly.

I would have loved Silva to come and prove his doubters wrong but a loan deal seems impossible and, as I say, I can't see us paying over inflated prices this time around.


1.) 18 Jul 2018 19:57:09
Good post, I agree with a lot of your comments

People always have these expectations during transfer season and throw around statements like 'we need an out and out goal scorer' or 'we need a 20 goal per season striker'

People seems to forget how few 20 goal per season strikers are out there, and of them how few are for sale!

The biggest concern with this Wolves side is the lack of depth in key positions, particularly RWB and CM, if you recall when Matt Doherty got suspended we were shocking in the 2-2 game with Hull, lost all shape and confidence.

I would be happy if we signed a big name midfielder (Joao Mario is as good an option as anyone, if Inter want 24m i'd go straight in and pick him up) and a RWB with potential to be second place to Doherty, like Vinagre on the left, throw in another CB and we have a squad which can finish 10th next season.

2.) 18 Jul 2018 20:13:29
Good job you pair ain't the managers then.

3.) 18 Jul 2018 22:51:57
Spot on Exeterwolf. I said before and I’ll say it again, we’re not buying superstars for stupid prices. We’re making them, albeit probably have to sell them come the right price. But who knew what neves Jota cav could do before they came to us? These are the type we’re going to sign. Hoping to see the young lads get there chance too, nothing better than seeing someone come through academy!
Patricio is different as you can’t beat experience in goal

4.) 19 Jul 2018 09:09:41
Agree with all posts above except demon.
Manc WOLF exactly how I see it.
exeter wolf exactly how I see it.
Feel great to read posts that say exactly how it is. imo but know in my own mind you both hit the nail on the head.

5.) 19 Jul 2018 09:11:26
Sorry WolvoNeil missed you out agree exactly to your post too.

6.) 19 Jul 2018 11:46:46
Pretty much agree with the above posts, except demon. I'd appreciate hearing demon's alternative suggestions.

7.) 19 Jul 2018 13:23:07
Wolves don't sign back-up players anymore. Doherty will have to fight for his position.



22 May 2018 12:46:02
The managerial merry-go-round is in full swing right now.
How about our first Summer signing be Nuno for 5-years?


1.) 22 May 2018 13:00:45
A nice gesture, but didn't exactly work out for Pardew at Newcastle with his 10 year contract! I'm sure Nuno will get a massive pay-jump as an effect of promotion and should we develop next year he'll be rewarded handsomely.



19 May 2018 17:51:04
It's always interesting to see the names that get bounded about.
I was wondering whether there was any strategy to the transfer targets / announcements based on attracting further players.
I. e. do they announce the major marque signing first, the guy that is going to be first choice, then attract the squad players - not too attractive to know you are going to be second or third choice.

Or, do they gather the squad players first - telling them they are a big part of the plans, to the end sign the marque player afterwards - leaving the squad players a bit miffed?
We will soon find out.

BTW - come on you Chiefs!


1.) 19 May 2018 20:06:12
No english players. not good enough.

2.) 19 May 2018 20:19:40
Tigers, Tigers, Tigers! Hahahaha.

3.) 19 May 2018 20:25:27
I don’t think any of us who post on here have any idea of the Wolves transfer strategy, only the board, and why would we? Like any business you would not show your cards before they need to be played and give your competition any advantage.
We can only speculate, but it is all a question of positioning, vision and ambition with the resources you have.
A lot of the names banded around has been mainly rumour and paper talk, there maybe some truth in certain players, but we don’t actually know.
But to answer your question, I would say that to we will only look at players who fit our style and will improve on what we have, and we’re not savvy or professional enough to comment on how these signing will be achieved
Personally I would wrap up the signings of Boly, N’Daye and Afobe first, focus on cover for Neves (Pele) then a marque striker, without busting the bank. Other positions to give the quality will follow when they can see there is ambition and intent to challenge for honours.
. I’m loving this 😋.

4.) 19 May 2018 21:52:44
without busting the bank. net profit last year 1.6 billion haha.

5.) 20 May 2018 05:39:45
Dappa, the net profit of the Fosun group has little impact upon what Wolves have in the way of funds available to spend. Fosun are an investment group, they will give Wolves a decent budget but not an extravagant budget. So yes, Wolves do have to consider quality and "not busting the bank" as Charlie Bear suggests.

Does anyone know how many of our new additions were Uncle Jorges' boys?
We don't seem to have heard much from him this window.


1.) 20 Aug 2019 03:40:26
Just Neto. Cutrone, Jordao and Vallejo are represented by other agents.



24 Apr 2019 23:37:02
I'm getting WAY AHEAD of myself here, but, what do we think next season will look like?
Given what this season has given us, what would you predict right now?
Glass half full or half empty?


1.) 25 Apr 2019 09:38:04
Not to sure it depends who we bring in and how well they adapt to our way of playing
If I'm honest top 8 this season wi be a great season, next season top 6 would be amazing just enjoying the ride.



10 Apr 2019 18:03:23
We sprinted to the pub to get there before 'last orders. We bounced through the doors just as the bell rang. We got all the way to the bar, only for the landlord to say "sorry boys"!
We didn't argue, we didn't shout, we didn't smash anything or abuse anyone, we just accepted it and shrugged our shoulders.
That's how Sunday felt to me.
However, in the cold light of day I know the pub will be opening again, next time we will be drinking, and the landlord definitely knows we will be back!




07 Apr 2019 13:24:02
There's a rumour circulating that a pack of Wolves are heading for Wembley!
Love this moment everyone!


1.) 07 Apr 2019 14:47:22
So nervous now. Dunno what I'll do if we lose. In Nuno I trust. Please please put in a performance and upset the hornets nest.

2.) 07 Apr 2019 15:20:44
Anyone know why Patricio isn't even on the bench today?

3.) 07 Apr 2019 15:33:53
He wasn't when we beat utd.



26 Dec 2018 22:42:38
That Wembley pitch looks terrible!


1.) 27 Dec 2018 12:11:41
I see Adama T is getting knocked. To build up his confidence he needs support. He’s going to be a very good player in time. Knocking him isn’t going to help his confidence. I know like many Wolves fans it’s frustrating but he will get there. ⚽️😉👍. Spurs is going to be a very tough match and no mistake. If we start to get back to our best we can give them em a bloody good game.

2.) 27 Dec 2018 12:46:27
The boy is an out and out winger. He is playing in a system which he is not used to and will need time to adapt to Nunos way of playing. He will come good.

3.) 27 Dec 2018 14:14:11
Dead on Jas M. 😉⚽️👍.

4.) 27 Dec 2018 17:07:42
If he's got any talent and he has, Nuno will bring it out of him and make it work for the team. Have faith. UTW.

Wolvessince77 - great post mate!

I'd also add to the 'not a big enough club' debate. I shake my head at some of these young up and coming 'stars' who WANT a big club and then moan like little children when they get one and don't start every game, or then go on strike to get another move!
I would much rather have our 'down to earth, do the job' type players, squad and management. With the odd exception I can't remember a player not 'pulling for the club' over the last couple of years. If they are giving their all, then they are giving it for US, the real fans.
Keep your premadonnas, I'll take graft and reality any day!

Here you go Demon. Have some fun with this and smile (for a while) .
We have made you manager for the first week of the season.
Please pick your starting XI for the first leg of the EC, and also for the Leicester game the following Sunday.

Demon. You can only play 11 mate. Where are your 6 or 7 going to play?
Positives please everyone!
Or perhaps you would prefer a return to those oh so not-so-good days when your whinging was worthy!

When some of you guys go to the larder and see that the food stock is getting low, do you panic and shout and ball at the wife, or do you trust that you will always have some food available to you for when you need it?
When the beer stocks look to be getting low in the man-fridge you simply go and buy some and your concerns are alleviated.

A football transfer window is much the same. If YOU were doing the buying you would have spent up already and be satisfied that your fridge was stocked.
Just PLEASE have some faith in the team that run our wonderful club, just like you have faith in the wife filling your larder when needed!

Also, get used to the prospect of some of the youngsters coming through. We haven't had that for a while but it is going to start happening and we will not need to go and blow out brains out on every transfer.

Personally I think Silva could do something here. He would be an excellent back up striker.
His credit is low at the moment but he has the credentials and Nuno may make him super special.
The link with Neves however is complete rubbish.

Ed025 - it's brilliant that we are back in Europe. It hasn't come too early for most fans, especially the 30000 that turn up each Thursday and for the 1000's of others deprivedbof success over the past 40-50 years. Having ambition to achieve greater status each year should never been diluted.
Yes, there will be challenges for a 'new and progressive' club, but with the right management and processes there is no reason to suggest - after just four games - that the successes and style of last season cannot be repeated again this year, with the added bonus of a European cup run (that currently stands at six matches! ) .
I'm no believer in the 'next season' philosophy. Do it now, there may never be another chance!


{Ed025's Note - i see your logic essex but it does put pressure on players playing that much football, of course it can be done and last season proved you are a very good team, but for me your squad depth is limited and thats not what you need when fighting on all fronts mate, i really hope you prove me wrong but i have seen it take its toll before and with my team everton in particular, but good luck to you..

I had one of those weird flashback memories today.
Do you recall that just a few seasons ago, and a few weeks into the season just like now, we had Walter Zenga doing crazy things with the dozen or so new players that had parachuted in?
I loved Zenga for his mad-cap ways and the true spirit he envoked on the Wolf pack mentality.
But it is light years, and I mean light years, away from what we have now.
Old Walter, I hope he (and his tattoo) are welcomed back warmly if he pops in to the Mol!

As for Dean Saunders?
How did that plank ever pass the interview to lead this wonderful club? The clown!

A marvellous day for our fantastic club.
Properly back in the big time now.
We should all be (and I'm sure we all are) very proud and grateful of this current crop of players and management.

I do indeed.
What they now have right in rugby, and it has taken time to get there, is that they have professional referees who have the balls to make decisions and use the technology in the right way. That hasn't always been the case.
It is going to take years to get in right in football but they could be bold and make refs professional and cut that 'maturity' period down - in my opinion that is.
