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! ⚽️😉👍.


6.) 26 Sep 2017 21:00:50
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?

1.) 02 Apr 2017 13:12:34
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.

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.


 

 

02 Jul 2017 18:33:22
I remember reading something recently that said that the new boss had teams that were hard to beat, not too expensive and exciting, but hard to beat.
That would possibly my explain the signings to date.
I'm sure the strikers will be forthcoming and, with the merry-go-round yet to really lock off, we may find that the good coups are the ones that come later in the window.
I'm excited at the prospects for next season!

Don't you just love all of this talk about this player and that player?
If they were all true can you imagine what a day would be like for Thelwell and others like him?
It must be like walking through a throuvh an Indian city as a tourist waving your wad of cash in the air! "Buy this Sir", "No, buy this Sir".

Any news on Cav?
For me Cav and Saiss will make a difference to us.
In December - when we were scoring freely - Cav was starting to look good and scoring goals.

exeterwolf

1.) 20 Feb 2017 21:03:25
I totally agree Exeter. Cav was looking awesome adds a bit of help to costa. Sais will be a huge player for us if he ever gets any game time.


2.) 22 Feb 2017 10:19:21
Yes I rate these two. I know they're not consistent. But even at the top, players usually aren't. But put a few in the same team at the same time and one or two can make a massive difference.

Definitely stuck on!

Ulf. The other side of the debate would go -
You buy early (like Boro), spend a loads of money, and then a prime PL player ( or two) comes available and you have no money to play with - to buy or loan.
The debate can go either way and we would all have our different ways of dealing with it.
I'm not sure when Abraham was snapped up by Bristol last year but that's the type if deal / player the 'wait for the Premises clubs' can throw up.
Less than 100 hours to kick off!

If it does turn out to be Andre Gray then I feel that would be a great addition.
He's young, keen, and would fit in with the profile of the other purchases - viable and able of increase their value significantly.

Bloody typical.
We lose a warm up game to a bunch of hatchet men who will have to play that way, week in week out, to get out of the league that they are in, and people are either jumping off a cliff, looking for us to sign even more players (to add to a very large squad) or (dare I say it) starting to tie the rope in a noose!

For God's sake go on holiday or do something to relax and get away from this constant pressure you keep heaping on yourselves, your pastime and your hobby
I for one, am still really excited about this season. We have made remarkable signings, some big statements as to how we are going to look in the future, and I believe we now have a Coach who can lead us in the right direction.

WWFC are now better equipped, more focused, and have a much better chance (emphasise this word as we are just one of twenty-odd teams in this division with the same ambition) of succeeding this season.
100% support all season, whatever the result, what ever the squad, whatever! Enjoy it. End of!

Oliveria for me.
Agree with lots of you that we are doing absolutely fine without the sacred '20-goaler', and I love the way the signings have been moulded by Nuno.
However I have a sneaky feeling about Oliveria.

I remember that. It was funny!
He saw almost every professional footballer turn up at some stage.
It was pure soap opera.
Didn't Crouch come by helicopter?

Just watched that 'Wonder Goal' by Ducjens and thought - I wonder if he would have been given that much space and time against Shrewsbury?
He'd have probably had no knees left and they would have been happy defending a free-kick!

Shamus, you are dead right. Looking back on his time here, KJ did a fantastic job with the tools at his disposal. He did wane towards the end, probably as the expectation and pressures grew, but in all honesty I feel we should all be grateful to him. Many other managers would have walked on the excuse of 'not getting enough cash to spend'!
