So Karanka linked because he is a Mendes client. Does that mean he will have to accept every player signing that Mendes forces on him. Clearly he didn't have to accept that at Boro will he accept it now?

1.) 15 May 2017 23:24:11
Wot you mean. do you won't to look at wolves' what players are on his books' you be shocked 3.

2.) 16 May 2017 01:32:47
I think due to the fact the last 3 years he's got them in play offs twice, automatically promoted I think he will be aloud 2-3 of his own and tbh I won't mind karanka as watching the football he played in the championship I think he do well and I think you have to judge him on the championship tbh and worry about prem when you get there.

3.) 16 May 2017 04:37:21
Karanka is good friends with Mourinho, another Mendes client. Nice if he sent Carrick our way.

4.) 16 May 2017 08:24:00
Hopefully, if appointed, he doesn't give some of our players a chance to impress. i. e. Saville, Price, Evans, Gladon. At least PL (hopefully) has an idea about who is the deadwood at the club and can act accordingly. Particularly as he has already expressed his desire to trim the squad down.

5.) 16 May 2017 10:13:45
you say this surreywolf, but I have to disagree with Lambert knowing who the deadwood is as he loves Saville.



08 Dec 2016 22:43:38
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

7.) 01 Sep 2016 15:51:46

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.

Can only guess that Lambert took a stand in January that he wanted control over transfers during that window. If so he created a contest with Mendes that he was never going to win unless he got us promoted. Lambert could maybe influence Jeff Shi but Mendes could influence Fosun. So Mendes wins and has final say on transfers. The coach will be accountable for results but will Mendes be accountable? My hope for the future is that Mendes and Santo work together to build an attacking sure, they should be able to as they are mates. My further hope for the future is that we build around Bright Ronan and Graham even though they are not Mendes signings. Good luck Santo the page has turned and you've got my full backing.

1.) 27 May 2017 15:18:46
My hope is Fosun wake up and smell the coffee where Mendes involvement is concerned. He's a football agent, not a coach or manager and that is where his responsibility should end. Bring players to the clubs attention but let the manager/ coach decide if the player fits into his teams jigsaw. Then he can fox trot Oscar until he is required to look out for another piece of the jigsaw! Just my opinion, and I suspect if you asked all club managers you'd get the same sort of response! Football manager aren't agents are they?

2.) 27 May 2017 15:40:11
Blimey Wolvescoast do you ever have anything positive to say. We have one of the worlds richest companys who own us, the worlds best football agents who has 100 players at his disposal, & still not good enough for some. Maybe we should bring moxey and morgan back to make you happy. Have faith in Mendez and Fosun. Wolves are biting back.

God Bless🙏🙏🙏.

3.) 27 May 2017 16:20:35
Time will tell. Hope I'm wrong. 👍😉.



20 May 2017 07:18:53
So if Lambert has gone are we really sounding out players and if so who is deciding which players we talk to and who is talking to them. If we are talking to Watkins at Barnsley then that must be Thelwell not Mendes. Reports say that Norwich are also interested in Watkins so does Lambert have a quiet word and tell him not to sign anything yet. Have Mendes and Thelwell agreed they can sign three players each but keep it a surprise then find out they've both signed the same player but both of them forgot to get a left back. Have Fosun decided to let Thelwell talk to anyone he likes just to keep him and the E&S happy. But that he can't sign them yet. Then in a couple of weeks say they forgot to tell Thelwell that he's sacked and Mendes is bringing in eight new Portuguese players.



11 May 2017 19:28:21
So Daily Star reckons Lambert's shopping list included Abraham from Chelsea, Grant Hanley from Newcastle, and Tom Lawrence from Leicester. Seems pretty good to me but Fosun knocked him back because they want Mendes in the driving seat choosing transfer targets. If that's true then this is the stage we are going to be talking about for years to come. Lambert has taken a team to the premiership and kept them there. How many of the other available managers have done that. He has had to work with a nightmare squad this year but no complaints because he understood he would get a chance in the summer. Looks like he has been sold down the river.

1.) 11 May 2017 23:10:27
It doesn't really matter who the manager is now if Mendez is calling the shots. How do we attract a quality manager who is willing to play second fiddle?



25 Jul 2016 14:20:22
Alex Pritchard was not taken on Spurs pre season trip to Australia and is expected to leave the club this summer. Yes please.

1.) 25 Jul 2016 14:33:06
Yes to that one. Shouldn't break the bank either.



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.

I think they will want to get all their ducks in a row this time and present the full story all in one go. Time to polish up their PR image if they want to look like they know what they're doing. I bet Jeff is feeling some heat. Problem is new managers are interested in more than just the wages and right now Wolverhampton just doesn't look that appealing to the top level established managers. We may need to work with someone who is still in the process of building a reputation and hungry to achieve.

These comments indicating that Lambert preferred to buy Hugill at £2m rather than blow mega bucks on Abraham sound ridiculous. Why would he want to make life difficult for hi self when someone else is picking up the tab. There is more to this story than meets the eye.

Eddie​ I think you have pretty well nailed the current situation. PL or his advisors looks like he is playing a bit of brinkmanship -back me or sack me. I don't blame him in some ways, he is his own man and has confidence in his own ability. But these are big players he is dealing with and sometimes you have to play the cards you are dealt. I fear that the Silva boat has sailed and his next stop will be the likes of Everton West Ham or even Arsenal.

Check the record, eight clubs where he stayed for just one season. We are going to end up like Watford new manager every season. Each time Mended will get a manager finders fee.

Hemwolf that is the most sense I have read on here assessing Lambert in a long time. Good managers define an effective style of play that matches the abilities in the team. Then they relentlessly drum that into the team till everyone understands it and it becomes habit. Lambert initially chose to apply the pressing game introduced by Klopp but after nearly two years with good players Liverpool are still work in progress. Huddersfield have had better results earlier but with a smaller squad and less challenge but Wagner still had a first half season to learn the ropes then a full pre season. Lambert has struggled with the quality and flexibility of the squad. He hasn't been helped by trying to rotate the squad to meet the crazy Saturday - Tuesday demands. Finally he seems to have moved from pressing to counter attacking. It is still early days but I have to agree the team have not played to a clear system.

Oliver I have a feeling that Silva will end up at Southampton. Watford is a prem league job but it's going to be interesting to see what quality of manager their approach attracts in the future.

My guess is that Silva will feel he has already proven himself as a champions league quality manager at Olympiakos and now a premier league quality manager at Hull. If he just bides his time he will be offered a job at an established prem club by Christmas at the latest. Top of the list is probably Southampton followed by Everton (if Koeman goes to Barcelona) and Watford. Coming down to the Championship will look like a lack of ambition. It could easily take three years to get us promoted and during that time he will start to be seen as a Championship manager.

It has not been a good six months. Apart from the games when Helder was up for it. I think PL had doubts about whether the Mendes boys were really up for it and there were definitely times when Cav, Tex and even Saiss were not up for it. Silvio looked decent but is it just a coincidence that he is fit for the last couple of games before his contract is up. Lambert has at least tried everyone out including kids and even tried some weird combinations like Saville at left back. But the bottom line is that with just one or two exceptions the players were either too old, too young, didn't care, injured, recovering form after injury or not good enough. I don't know if PL was offered money in January but I think he decided the players he wanted would not be available and that anyway his squad was too big. So he was going to wait till the summer. That was a mistake if he wanted to keep his job. His football was dire because his players were rubbish. Fosun don't care that he could end up with a squad of seventy or that kids were being prepared for the future they want decent TV performances and results. Two different cultures which had little chance of meeting up. So it looks like the show moves on, but who is going to get the time to tidy up this cra*p and build a team. Even Wagner had half a season before this season started.

Wolves away at Preston just before Hoddle walked was the most gutless performance I have ever seen by a Wolves team including this teams home games to Barnsley Wigan Rotherham and Blackburn. He left his decision to leave till the very last moment in close season. He bought Frankowski. I could go on.
