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

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.

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.

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.

⚽️😉👍.

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.
COYW!

exeterwolf

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

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.
FWAW.

Sorry WolvoNeil missed you out agree exactly to your post too.
FWAW.


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?

exeterwolf

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!

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.

That Wembley pitch looks terrible!

exeterwolf

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.


 

 

06 Sep 2018 15:22:47
It's a quiet time on here due to the international break, so here's a question to get you going.

January transfer market.
You have just one transfer to make.
You have up to £20m (new club record) .
Who do you go and buy?

exeterwolf

1.) 06 Sep 2018 15:43:04
Give it to Nuno to stay.


2.) 06 Sep 2018 16:04:59
A proven CB with attitude like Otamendi or Sergio Ramos if 20m is enough but wages going to be a problem how about Chiellini? This is all fantasy lol.


3.) 06 Sep 2018 20:00:19
Frimpong.


4.) 07 Sep 2018 06:33:01
Gary Cahill maybe? Probably wouldn’t cost £20 mill and I realise he’s 33 now but being a CB you can get away with it a tad more perhaps. Also he’s used to playing in a back 3 and would give that added experience which our CB’s may lack. Chuffed with our start to the season! Onwards and upwards.


5.) 07 Sep 2018 08:07:43
John terry for me all day long him and boly together wold be class . And he wouldn’t cost 20 mil.


6.) 07 Sep 2018 09:29:26
Obviously we would have to spend the majority of the 20mil on a time machine in order to purchase the John Terry of 10 or so years ago for your post (Billy) to make sense.


7.) 07 Sep 2018 09:45:06
Well it took less then two hours for someone to take the bait . Well done Ultimatewolf yo have passed the lack of sense of humour test .

My life is fantastic thank you. Hope yours is the same, all the comments above are in the WOLVES BANTER Part of the site . So let’s not get all keyboard warrior because you don’t understand the word BANTER . Enjoy your weekend.


10.) 07 Sep 2018 10:32:10
I can't think of a specific player only the type of player and that is the best young up and coming youngster in the world who is the next messi/ ronaldo.
Lol I know my post is a cop out but struggling to think of a player that we need at the moment.
Maybe nathienel clyne from liverpool (excuse spelling) .


11.) 07 Sep 2018 11:25:59
Lol billy I took the bait but past the sense of humour test 😉

Your certificate is in the post Phillip . Glad to hear all is good with you, is your bro at new cross yet? Hope he is keeping well .


13.) 07 Sep 2018 12:35:29
Hi phillip789 got to say I agree with your shout there, always rated Nathaniel Clyne and he's down the pecking order a bit at Liverpool. Thought Yaya Toure (excuse spelling? ), would have been a decent shout as cover for a season on a freebie due to his experience and leadership etc. Also Phil was great to read improvement on your brother, hopefully he'll be "back in the hood" very soon. Great to get that first win of the season. Hate international break thou. Can't wait to get started again next week. In Nuno we trust. #TogetherWeAreStronger 🐺.


14.) 08 Sep 2018 06:29:25
Yes billy my brother is in new cross thanks👍he is confused but has a brilliant sense of humour always laughing and jolly he compares me to a puppy dog when I walk upto his bed because I wear my heart on my sleeve and very excited to see him he says i'm like a puppy dog wagging its tail tongue out wanting to jump up for a fuss lol his words.
Thanks bradmore wolf my bro is on the right road to revovery.
Cant wait for our next match.
FWAW.

27 Aug 2018 12:21:38
Team for Sheff Wed?
Dendonker anyone?
Bright to start?
MGW to run the midfield?
Bonatini to score a hat-trick?

exeterwolf

1.) 27 Aug 2018 14:02:19
Any or all of those.

I would like to see Ruddy, Dendoncker, Traore, Bonatini, MGW, Hause, Vinagre, Batth, Saiss and Bright starting. And Oskar on the bench. If things look desperate we can bring on Jota, Costa and whoever else we had rested. I think Nuno will only keep 2 or 3 starting from last match.

Ruddy
Coady/ Dendoncker Boly/ Batth Hause
Vinagre Traore
MGW/ Neves Saiss
Bonatini, Cavaliero (if fit) / Costa, Bright.


2.) 27 Aug 2018 20:14:47
I think Nuno will play a completely changed XI. My bet is:
Ruddy
Batth, Dendonker, Hause
Buur, Saiss, Gibbs-White, Vinagre
Traore, Bonatini, Enobakhare

I wouldn't be surprised to see Norris, Giles and John on the bench with some of the big hitters.


3.) 28 Aug 2018 19:14:43
We weren't far off.

Elliott Watt starting (risky? ) and no Bright. Doc also playing. We really don't have much in the way of options at RWB!


4.) 29 Aug 2018 10:20:09
I did think he might have played Buur to give him another run out because of the lack of RWB cover but Nuno knows what he's doing. I am glad to see some youngsters getting a go in this era of multi-million pound signings.


 

 

07 Aug 2018 18:09:51
It's worrying to read that so many people seem to already be hooked on this new drug of 'let's compete with everyone for everybody'.
Almost every signing that Fosun have made has been clandestine in nature. They do not do their business on the back pages or through social media.

Thats not going to happen.
There is one thing that Mini does really well, and that is his man-management skills.
He will not upset a unified squad with such a highly paid individual.
I have no idea what Patricio and Moutinho are on but they are our most experienced pair. I doubt they are three times more that Neves!

When we buy it will either be a solid lower division player with a future - Maddison type - or someone we have never heard of - Jimenez type.

18m is a snip (note to self that this isn't actually 'real' money) if it is true.
Just think what 18m actually gets you these days!
For those aching for a striker - he is a striker.
For those aching for a big bloke - he's a big bloke.
For those aching for something slightly different - he is different.
So, for me, he suits the mould for us right now (I was really impressed with him at Bristol City and we should have made a move before Swansea did) and I'm sure he would develop under Nuno.
Fingers crossed it may happen.

Noddy, believe me pal, I have no intention of lecturing anyone on how to support our team.
You have been there like me.
Raul is a 'worker'.
Let's all support him and the boys in old gold.

On a similar vein. I see Raul like I saw Leo last year (before Xmas) .
Yes, not a world beater (but how many of those do we have) but bloody good enough for what we needed at that time.
Raul hasn't scored the number of goals he could have done (and he's probably the first to say the same) but you can't fault the lad's endeavour and intentions.
Raul is an upgrade on Leo, and there is definitely room for an upgrade on Raul, but until it materialises let's get behind him.

Jamie Carragher, another one from 'The football bubble', when did he become the self-proclaimed voice of reason? I must have missed that headline!
Neves, Patricio, Moutinho, are up-and-comers aren't they Jamie?
Has anyone ever been to Dortmund, Monchengladbach, Leipzig, Turin, Istanbul, anywhere in Russia or China? Not one of them a Mecca for class, culture, fashion, etc., and yet they have good teams that attract class players.
So wind your neck in Jamie and stay in Liverpool old pal.

That is because they live in the professional football 'bubble' that says "the more you spend the better you are".
If it were that easy then the best Football Manager 2018 players would make Premiership managers and coaches.
Too many of these 'experts' forget that the greatest coaches get the best out of their players irrespective of how much they cost or get paid. They drive me bloody mad.
Best to listen with the volume off!

We have to hope that we are in better shape than Newcastle and we are at home!
If we believe that we are a top 6/ 7/ 8 side in this division then these are the games we HAVE to win.
I've got us down for a 1-0 win.

My question is why does he keep getting an opportunity when there are others in the squad that could be tried out.
I think his time is running out.
