Rumours persist about McCormack but if there is any truth you have to question why Villa want to sell so quickly. He must have pocketed a lot of down from his moves already. Does he still have the hunger. Not for me thanks.
1.) 08 Dec 2016 23:42:02
I think it's because Kodija is the preferred striker and McCormack doesn't want to sit on the bench. Apparently he has been told that he is not in Steve Bruce's long term plans.
2.) 09 Dec 2016 05:59:27
Millwall are apparently into Jed Wallace according to newsnow.
3.) 09 Dec 2016 11:53:04
McCormack would certainly be an upgrade on what we've got at the moment, plus Rhodes and Lewis Dunk, these are the kind of players we must buy if Fosun are serious about us getting to the Premier league.
4.) 09 Dec 2016 11:58:09
I see we've got over 4.5k allocation for Stoke at 20 quid a ticket. Surely we will sell that out! On a Saturday at 3pm 👍👍👍.
5.) 09 Dec 2016 12:02:07
Palace have been told to cough up £10m for Dunk.
6.) 09 Dec 2016 13:06:21
As I said he's the kind of quality we need, so start buyin these sort of players or stay in this league indefinately! The choice is Fosuns?
7.) 09 Dec 2016 15:22:53
Lots of rumours, lots of good quality players names mentioned, lots of optimism. However, realistically, if the players clubs will let them go is another question altogether?! Never mind the cost.! No one wants to sell their best players do they? Just being realistic. We may get one or two, but, that is probably all. We need all of the players mentioned to move this tanker forward that's for sure. We must at least string a few wins together now that I'm sure we would all agree. 👍😉.
8.) 10 Dec 2016 11:42:19
If McCormack is not in Villa's plans he could be a good buy for us as a means to help get promoted. That's if he still has the motivation. Beyond that I don't think he would cut it in the PL but you never know. Just look at Austin, Long and Deeney, they have all made the transition.
31 Aug 2016 22:10:22
Henry gone to Bolton on loan.
1.) 01 Sep 2016 09:09:04
Someone else to score against us!
2.) 01 Sep 2016 09:22:39
Doubt it Euroman- they're in a totally different league!
3.) 01 Sep 2016 10:36:20
. and even if they were in the same division loanees cannot play against their contract club.
4.) 01 Sep 2016 11:52:23
Yes they can North Bank but most loaning clubs put a no play stipulation in the loan terms.
5.) 01 Sep 2016 13:59:57
er van la parra?
6.) 01 Sep 2016 14:19:25
RVLP has been bought by Huddersfield. He's their player now.
7.) 01 Sep 2016 15:51:46
VLP left on a Permanent at the end of last season.
8.) 01 Sep 2016 15:52:18
My bad, Lowwolf. Yes, of course.
22 May 2016 22:29:30
Cummings seems to be certain he's not leaving his current team this summer. I think we may need to do our forward hunting somewhere else.
1.) 22 May 2016 23:35:49
Yh everyone says that then Teams offer the money and he's off he said to make teams bid for him mate think about it mate.
2.) 23 May 2016 10:48:44
Europa League with Hibs next season or mid-table Championship with us? Playing at Hampden Park was great experience for him. Mind you, we can offer big games against Villa and Newcastle and our league is at least equal to SPL.
3.) 23 May 2016 13:47:07
Not sure Cummings is good enough. Much rather we went for Anthony Stokes.
4.) 23 May 2016 16:25:39
MWP really, Antony Stokes a player who cannot even get into his own national team. We need someone young who can score along with dicko and cummings could be that player.
5.) 23 May 2016 16:56:53
Wolves011 I can't see Cummings leaving Hibs now he has a chance at European football and I don't think they would sell now anyway they need the squad.
6.) 23 May 2016 18:21:07
Not saw a lot of Cummings, the players we are linked with a more than underwhelming. Think we have an average squad, with a few gems. The squad is very unbalanced also, we could do with getting rid of most and rebuilding with a core of the better players. Don't think we really have a player at the moment that is good enough to challenge for top 2 in championship let alone the Premier League.
There's only a few players I'd actually be disappointed if we sold, Dicko Price Graham Hause Iorfa (maybe Evans) . The rest for me aren't up to standard to challenge for premier league. I also don't think we need to spend massively to get out of the division. Super Mick managed it with a very tight budget.
7.) 23 May 2016 19:28:16
Ikeme, docherty, Wallace Henry and Ennis.
8.) 23 May 2016 19:54:54
Said before and will say again; Cummings is no better than the untried forwards we have at the moment, namely: Collins, Reid, Enobakahre, Ennis and Wilson. Need to give these a run out pre-season and if not ready, go for experienced centre forward. Watched Cummings in final against Rangers; totally underwhelmed!
9.) 24 May 2016 07:32:03
Ikeme - not too fussed about decent Championship keeper prone to a mistake
Doherty - Maybe, he's had a good season can he keep it up?
Wallace - Looked good when he came back from Milwall, probably would keep him
Henry - Most inconsistent player ever, not good enough to help us get promoted.
and wasn't counting the likes of Ennis Enobakhare Reid ect. from the u21's and u18's as they are currently untried.
I really believe we should lower our expectations at Board and Management level. We just simply aren't good enough to challenge at the top yet and would need one of 2 things;
1) Serious investment and a complete overhaul of Board and Management
2) Wise investment (Like under Mick) and a complete overhaul of Board and Management.
10.) 24 May 2016 08:20:43
Talking about stating the obvious Stu, surely everyone knows this is what's needed.
11.) 24 May 2016 09:30:38
Not everybody. Jez Moxey, Steve Morgan, Thelwell and Jackett don't seem to know.
12.) 24 May 2016 11:24:30
Wolves011 - Seen both Stokes and Cummings 4 / 5 times this year and Stokes might be older, but he definitely makes more of an impact. Think we need someone who can score now, not someone who could in the future.
13.) 24 May 2016 14:38:49
Stokes on his way back to Celtic, unless Rodgers has a bigger budget than we think. Cummings hasn't had a good second half of the season. Hibs often preferring Keatings in recent matches. Agree he isn't really the player we need - much as we want him to be Kenny Miller #2.
14.) 25 May 2016 17:20:54
MWP I apologise. Anyway what about Bradshaw?
15.) 26 May 2016 13:19:12
No apology required. Don't think Bradshaw is right for us either. I actually like Stokes - he can run with the ball, is direct, bit of skill, not afraid to have a pop at goal and he can head. Would be a great foil for Dicko. Is he surplus to requirements at Celtic?
16.) 26 May 2016 13:53:03
That's for Brendan to decide, MWP. Mind he's just put 2 past Rangers so his stock value in the East part of Glasgow has risen somewhat.
29 Nov 2015 09:39:00
Looks like QPR are considering a move for Jackett. Surely Jackett will have to give it serious consideration if it happens. I believe he has already been advised that offers will be considered for Afobe in January and that most of the funds will be used to subsidise the club's running expenses. Obviously no longer term guarantee can be provided regarding Jackett's employment as new owners may want their own man. Jackett does find the current working relationship with Thelwell difficult and clearly believes future progress at the club is unlikely without spending some real money, something that is unlikely in the current situation. He does still have positive feelings for the club and has a belief in the future potential of the younger players coming through. But Jackett is well aware that football is a short term business and that given the spiral of no wins and reducing attendances he could easily be sacked long before the youngsters break through. Jackett has no fear of the sack as he has confidence that he can land another job. But QPR is an opportunity that would appeal if he was given assurances regarding taking Gallen and access to funds. Although Wolves would initially resist the approach if the offer appeals Jackett would simply resign. Other factors that may influence Jackett's timing is access to the January transfer window at the new club and concern that staying longer on a sinking ship may damage his marketability. In the event that Jackett leaves Wolves may well consider as a short term option promoting current First team coach Rob Edwards into the position of Head Coach. This was intended to be the longer term option but many at the club feel he is ready now and would of course have the support of Thelwell.
1.) 29 Nov 2015 10:41:47
The way Jackett is performing get rid now and appoint the tea lady in his place!
2.) 30 Nov 2015 03:01:48
Paul Tamworth, I've read your posts for a while now and never yet seen one positive comment, managers you have run down include Mick McCarthy, Terry Connor, Ståle Solbakken. Then you started to finally praise a manager that we had, Dean Saunders (remember your statement " the futurse bright, the future is deano) that didn't work out well did it. Now KJ took our club by the scruff of its neck, spending little but most if not all signings turned out well. NOW instead of running all of our managers down (Deano Excluding of course ) . how about you naming a manager we should have, and be sensible about it too . No jose mourinho, no pep guardiola be sensible if ya can. But of course Deano (the future is bright) is available isn't he, are you going to pick him maybe?
Back you club, i'm also a regular having a season ticket for over 50 years. come on Paul let's here what manager you want.
3.) 30 Nov 2015 07:42:01
In fairness to PT, MM had lost his way and should have left after the 2nd season in prem. Terry Connor was never a manager in a million years, the football he played and our run under him said it all, and as for SS he had his hands tied by a divide in the players, but what he should have done was dropped every player that wasn't performing under him rather than keep playing them.
Im on the fence with Jackett at the moment, his team selections and substitutions this season have baffled me. Taking Graham off v MK Dons was the worst substitution I've witnessed, the only player that looked like making anything happen. He keeps giving Ojo a chance when its clear he goes missing for large parts of the game when he plays. Byrne has the ability to cause a defence a problem but keeps being left out and gets a sub appearance here or there and not a run in the team. His tinkering this season has had a negative impact. Edwards at the start of the season was being played where ever just to accomodate him, and ALF hasn't been given a good enough chance next to Afobe. The signing of Grant Holt. that's all i'm saying on that one.
Jacketts negatives this season way outweigh his positives. Losing Sako and Dicko was massive this season, one we knew about since last year and should have had replacements lined up that were good enough OR Graham should have been given a chance sooner. i'm not a fan of sacking managers for every bad run, but I think KJ has taken us as far as he can.
As for the next manager, I like Robinson at MK Dons always have done. Brendan Rodgers is an unrealistic one but if you don't ask you don't get. Gary Monk might not be in a job much longer maybe him? Jimmy Floyd Hasslebaink? there's plenty of managers out there.
IMO I think Jackett has taken us as far as he can, and with the situation off field, I can't see it improving. there's nothing more I want than to be proven wrong. i'm just being realistic.
On another note did anybody else think the refereeing performance v MK Dons was the worst ever at the molineux? The shirt pulling the late fouls the pushing and the ref let it happen. Afobe getting his shorts almost pulled off him was more GBH than a foul in football terms.
4.) 30 Nov 2015 08:20:00
Nigel Pearson or Brendon Rogers! A positive Mmmmmmmmmmmm the balti pie at half time was sound 👍.
5.) 30 Nov 2015 12:49:27
I think Stuu Corbett as got it smack on with K. J. is team selection's are puzzling, think Byrne should have replaced Henry as he didn't have one of is good games, Le fondre should have played from the start with Afobe got more to is game than Edwards and is on form scoring and making goals yet still can't get a start and why Graham was took off was very puzzling unless it was due to is fitness which I find it hard to believe because of is age if he isn't fit enough now for 90 minutes he never will be and the other question is why wasn't Holt given some time could have given we something extra up front with is size, why sign him if you are not going to give him any game time it would of been worth trying nothing else as working.
k. J. needs to sort it quickly or else I'm afraid they will be calling for is head the same excuses ever week with nothing being done is not good enough the players bought so far have added no difference to the squad in Coady and Wallace and it isn't as though we have money to throw away but what little bit we have could and should of been spent better, all I hope for is my club to get new owner or owners who care about my F. C. because Morgan does not care about Wolves unless he surprises we in January and gives K. J some money its in is own interest really so he can sell club and move on can't wait the sooner the better.
6.) 30 Nov 2015 17:33:50
Agree with most of what you say Bigwolf apart from starting Le Fondre. If he is the best partner for Afobe then we are in big trouble! When he came on on Saturday I don't think he won a single ball! Also Afobe dropped deep and on at least one occasion was in the right back position! Why did we buy Holt if he's not going to be used? OK he isn't the quickest in the world but at least he has PRESENCE and can force defenders into mistakes. I think Siggy should be given a chance if he is fit or even Enobakhare.
7.) 01 Dec 2015 07:53:26
Le Fondre came on the weekend and balls were hoofed up to him in the air, he's never going to win those against 6ft4 centre halves when hess 5ft9 himself. He's a finisher and works hard. gets down the channels and should allow Afobe to stay central, looks to me that it was KJ tactic change that made Afobe drop deeper and not the inclusion of Le Fondre.
8.) 01 Dec 2015 08:41:29
Le Fondre Doesn't win anything on the deck either! He's another Frankowski a lightweight!
9.) 01 Dec 2015 16:29:10
Listened. To comments but surely we have to play 2 up front if not Le fondre then Holt should of been brought on, goals is what we needed its not rocket science so why wasn't he brought on against an average WK dons, if he can't play against them at home who we hammered without scoring a goal, when will K. J. use him same old story week in week out and getting nowhere.
23 Sep 2015 20:33:21
Looking at boro's Adam reach for a loan. Left midfielder.
1.) 23 Sep 2015 23:41:39
Be a good signing I'm thinking that Henry to move in side behind afobe then reach and Byrne out wide?
2.) 24 Sep 2015 21:39:08

22 Jul 2016 12:21:57
My choice would be former Italian national team manager Cesare Prandelli as Head Coach and Director of football. Excellent track record at the very top of the game. Ethics that would make Sir Jack proud.
17 Jul 2016 09:10:16
For what its worth and only me guessing based on rumour. I think Mendes is the driving force behind the deal and he is pulling together the finance, perhaps in the form of a consortium. It may have been that Robin was originally interested in joining the consortium but when he found out full details he decided against it. Maybe if Ding Lei was the other investor he felt that he wouldn't get a loud enough voice. Or maybe Wolves were a standby option in CA's AC Milan fell through. Either way with the amount of money going into club ownership it looks like we are not going to be the big financial noise in the prem we were dreaming of. In fact with that Baggie's deal we won't be the big noise in the West Midlands. But we will have the chance to get a balanced team on the pitch, compete for some decent players and maybe hang on to iorfa. If there are changes in consortium that would explain the delay. Actually it wouldn't seem like a delay if the news hadn't been released in Spain. Probably would have been better if news had not been released, but then we would have been going crazy at the lack of signings.
1.) 17 Jul 2016 10:43:21
V you are right, if this hadn't been leaked from Spain, we would have been a lot happier I think, but we are where we are with it.
2.) 17 Jul 2016 12:59:20
Some key words/ phrases in the above. perhaps, maybe, probably, seems to be, and then sime other numpty takes it as real and another rumour starts. ffs!
09 Jul 2016 06:12:46
here is money to spend I hope we have a management set up that brings in the righttype of player. When we have had money in the past it wasn't always spent in the most effective way. In the end it was only when we had no money that Mick started building a team to get us out of this division. It needs to be a real team not just a group of individuals. More of a Wales than a Belgium or England. More of a Leicester than a Newcastle or Villa. Could take a season or two to get it right. The players brought in to get us up may not be the players to keep us up and let's not forget the clubs we are competing with. But at least we may have a chance of really competing if this goes through.
05 Jul 2016 07:29:49
A few things that spring to mind as news seems to be trickling out. Very little mention of Robin Li in the UK based news items, just the Chinese consortium and Sky even referred back to Ding Lei's previous link. If the three Portuguese players have been approached who identified these areas as needing improvement. Have they been working with The well or has Julen been watching our videos and been talking to Jorge Mendes. Where does that leave Thelwell. Will Julen be working as a conventional British manager or a continental type coach. Are we going to adjust our playing style through the academy. Oh man so many questions but what else can we think about while we wait. Oh and how will Macdonald fit?
1.) 05 Jul 2016 07:50:20
Try and chill out nothing definite yet mate, until they come out and day it's done.
2.) 05 Jul 2016 08:34:39
If and when this goes through there will be changes from the top down that is a shoe in. Therwell will be a distant memory.
3.) 05 Jul 2016 08:53:28
Club needs a total revamp from backroom to players. This guy's got some work on his hands. hope he's up for it.

Absolutely agree Paul. Very happy with Super Lambert. Now he has a decent squad to choose from. Great signings in January, the only manager to get the best out of Weimann. Dangerous in double figures for the first time.

14 Mar 2017 19:06:35
I never like putting anyone in the frame for the boot but I have to just question how Sporting Director Thelwell's performance is measured. Is he Lambert's boss? If the first team loses or plays rubbish obviously the Head Coach gets grief or sacked but it seems to have no impact on him. If the under 18's results are rubbish the coach gets sacked but no impact on the Sporting Director. Does he have responsibility for appointing managers? Did he appoint Jackett or was it Moxey or both? If so was there any comeback on him when Jackett was sacked? If his job is player recruitment he must have been busy in the summer buying our rreserve goalie cause all the other summer signings were Mendes. The two January signings were Lambert's so what has he been doing for the last six months. Who was it in the January before that who went shopping for a striker and came back with Mason a number ten. Why have we had no recognised left back since Golbourne went 14 months ago. Just curious what our Sporting Director actually does that's all.

Sorry Stuu I just disagree I think Rowett would be just another KJ type appointment. Organised and structured with limited resources. Within a season our fans would be chewing him up for his attrition football.
Click To View This Thread
11 Mar 2017 17:40:57
Just to be clear, Rowett failed to get promotion from division two in his two full seasons at Burton. He got into the playoffs each season but his team scored 71 goals then 47. We scored 51 the season we dropped out the championship. In two seasons at Blues he finished 10th each season scoring 63 goals. At the same time we were scoring 98 goals with the magic trio then in the season with the goal machines ALF and Siggy with KJ giving up on attack we scored 80 goals. I don't know what you are expecting of Rowett but although he has done alright with limited resources there is no way we could take a chance on him getting promotion. Start your search thinking about people who have got a team promoted then think about someone who has managed more than a season in the prem without ever getting relegated. See how many you can think of.

At the time we tried to sign him a lot of the experts were saying that he had only won things with Olympiakos and anyone can win things there. All the recommendations were we should be looking at someone who knows the division like Bruce. Well after all the spending Villa have lost four out of their last six and the Bruce fans have gone quiet. I'm not saying Bruce is a bad manager just that things in football are not always simple or straightforward.

Fulham boss asked all his players if they wanted McCormack back and they said no. Meanwhile McCormack tells Steve Bruce he couldn't make training because the electronic gates on his house had locked. Could be related to Roger Johnson not for me thanks too toxic for my taste.
