Nino complaining about fixture congestion and playing too many games. On our day we can beat anyone but we are inconsistent. We want to be back in Europe so a solution could be to rest players for the league and go all out for the FA Cup.

21 Nov 2020 17:25:30
We need West Brom to get a draw with Manchester United.

25 Nov 2020 21:36:04
We never need that lot to get anything.

26 Nov 2020 11:01:48
Now we need Sheff Utd to beat West Brom.

28 Nov 2020 11:25:51
Id take 17th place now if the rubbish got relegated and folded as a club.

16 Nov 2020 16:36:01
Juventus want Traore now and have asked about a swap deal with Paulo Dybala, what is this Dybala like? anyone know.

16 Nov 2020 17:44:35
He's a very good player but although I've mentioned the Neto to Juve rumour, this is a case of the media having nothing to do so they make up stories.

16 Nov 2020 18:40:07
ok cheers Jas.

16 Nov 2020 20:33:53
Saw this to Nelly. I'd take Dybala any day of the week! Can play numerous positions and especially good in the No.10 role which we desperately need.

17 Nov 2020 07:04:56
I'd say the Traore situation looks the most likely something happening. Said it was a concern a few weeks back that he hasn't signed a new contract.

Lots of media stating he is unhappy not to be starting because he hasn't put pen to paper. Whether there is anything in that or not. Could be rubbish

Fact remains he is the most explosive winger in the world, completely unplayable at his best. We won't get top dollar for him without the new contract +playing time. Players invariably get sold when contracts aren't signed.

17 Nov 2020 10:55:53
Tom - spot on!

17 Nov 2020 12:04:03
Unplayable - that’s obviously what Nuno thinks, looks like a repeat of the Jota situation, we’ll have to settle for watching our World - beaters on TV playing for the “big Clubs”.

17 Nov 2020 14:30:48
As Leicester and Southampton and indeed all bar the big 6 have had to do in recent times, in fact even Spurs and Arsenal have been raided in the not too distant past by MU and MC respectively.
However we are v sensibly run and Nuno does seem to have a great relationship with the squad so hopefully we can hold it together better than others have done and if the kids we have bought over the last few transfer window develop as hoped maybe we can cross over and become a " big team" ourselves.
Fingers crossed!

17 Nov 2020 19:30:37
This is the same Paulo Dybala that pulled out of a move to Spurs when they were a champs league team right? The same player Juve have previously said they want to make a focal point of the team?! The same player in fact that has recently asked for a rise on his already HUGE wage?! Call me a sceltic but I suspect that him being tied to us and Juve being tied to Neto are all just part of the negotiation process! Just done for bargaining power, Juve making him think they are looking at alternatives then him being tied in a swap to show he's not irreplaceable?! In fact as if to prove the point here's a direct quote from his agent "I have read the rumours in the newspapers through the last few days and they're completely false"
Don't get me wrong would been very exciting if it had been true! Who knows what goes on but how often is there any truth in these rumours, I'd say 1 in 10 would be a generous estimation in my experience! COYW.

20 Nov 2020 16:26:07
I don't understand what the contract has to do with anything. He is under contract to us. The next team will sign him to a longer contract, if they wish.
If they want him, they have to pay us what we want unless there is a release clause that is lower than that.

22 Nov 2020 08:05:11
It has everything to do with it.

You might be right in alluding to the contract he currently has until 2023 is little cause for immediate concern. but for immediately securing we get the best out of the long term return it definitely is.

For one, almost all of our top stars have extended by 2 or 3 years. Raul for instance. That massively puts suitors off and avoids other teams making cheeky/ tempting offers.

What I mean is we are unlikely to loose a player like that for anything other than a stupidly high price tag

You throw Adama's so called 'relaxed' contract stand off into the mix and everyone starts to question things. Those cheeky offers might start rolling in. If he isn't committing his long term future to the club in the next year, I would put money on him leaving. Genuinely think Nuno see's him as part of our future. What a success story, but this does need resolving sooner rather than later.

15 Nov 2020 16:24:33
Sports Mole via Tuttosport reporting that Juventus are looking to sign Pedro Neto in either January or next summer. Hope they've got the £100m that he's worth.

16 Nov 2020 07:25:00
May as well start chucking ridiculous price tags on players under contract till 2025.

16 Nov 2020 14:49:33
I have.

26 Nov 2020 13:41:57
Coming the other way what about Eriksen - apparently available for £12m?
He could be the attacking goal scoring mid we seemingly need?
Ok wages will be v high at moment, (Allegedly £160k pa), but perhaps if we are merely paying £12m we could structure his remuneration as some sort of "fee" of say £3m a year and wages of £100k a week to put him in line with Moutinho, last years top wage earner, (Jimenez might now earn more? ) .
He is only 28 and was - at Spurs a couple of years ago - sensational. Yes it appears that he is not that player any more but at £12m surely worth a punt that he can be rediscovered as players of that quality aren't normally available to Wolves.
Indeed given the problems he has had over the last 12 months in Milan he might be malleable re wages?
Thoughts?

14 Nov 2020 12:42:56
Anyone else heard the rumour about Wolves changing kit manufacturers from Adidas to Castore.

From what I've read, Adidas deal is worth £3m a season and runs until 2022.

The Castor deal will be worth £1m a season and Wolves are in negotiations to break the deal with Adidas 1 year early.

The report also states that Rangers are getting £5m a year and Newcastle will too if they sign, however this is for all official merchandise whereas our deal is only for the kits and not wider retail items.

Strange that we'd consider a sponsor offering less money.

Can the Eds shed some light on this.

{Ed002's Note - I don't know any of the details but if the amount involved is as low as that the club would get a significant profit share on sales and the deal would be simply for teh supply of kit.}

14 Nov 2020 16:48:06
Cheers Ed. Just done a little more research and it mentions that the club and manufacturers would split the profits. Rangers are tied into the new style contract and have seen a significant rise in income.

{Ed002's Note - That makes sense Jas.}

14 Nov 2020 20:58:29
I have not a clue on these things but could this just be a reaction to the current situation with our revenue streams? By that I mean the club needs to make more from merchandise (thus wanting a larger share of the profits) to help compensate for the lack of matchday income?

13 Nov 2020 05:15:25
Like we've gone back in time but. heavily linked with Renato Sanches again.

In fairness at Lille he looks to be turning into the player people thought he could be.

Its what we are crying out for in terms of dynamism in the middle. doesn't get much more than him, ideally a midfielder who offers a bit of everything.

13 Nov 2020 13:06:03
If we could get him back to where he was in 2016 he would be an incredible signing - still only 23.

However he seems to have been struggling and indeed has barely played since 2016 - a long time ago.
Consequently it would be a gamble but if he was as good as he might have been we wouldn't have a sniff now as he would be a regular at one of the world's leading sides and not lookng for a move to Wolves!

For me then its a maybe but I think we could do better - although I guess it all depends on wages and fees we would be looking at for the various options.

13 Nov 2020 19:50:32
Expect a transfer window like no other 3 outgoings I’m fairly sure of.

14 Nov 2020 00:54:26
Like to elaborate?

14 Nov 2020 05:23:28
That would be too easy future. he doesn't sound all mystic then does he.

14 Nov 2020 20:40:26
Tom - I want to believe that when people make statements on here they do so for a reason but.?
Didn't he claim that there would be one change to the team against LC only for Nuno to send out the same 11?
However to be fair I think he did identify a "surprise" against Palace and RAN "surprisingly" made his debut?
I would point out though that in the same thread I explicitly suggested we should pick RAN as we needed his (ALLEGED) attacking verve - even though I admitted I knew nothing about him.
So perhaps I am fitting facts to his statements overly generously.
Like a newspaper horoscope if you are sufficiently vague people can read more into it than they should
Perhaps I should remember that even a broken clock tells the correct time twice a day!

15 Nov 2020 07:11:18
We need midfielders who offer more going forward. It's a no brainer. I'd liked to have seen more of Vitinha by now. Obviously slowly integrated into the team.

That said we don't start using these players they will soon won't to move on. Look at Pedro Goncalves we had. Never played a game. he's absolutely tearing it up now at Sporting Bruno fernandes style.

15 Nov 2020 15:21:49
Tom - agree with both your points.
We def need to improve the midfield balance and you are correct that the new players need integrating.
The integration is however hard to do especially as we got knocked out of league cup - the only "free" games - in the 1st round.
Guess we aren't strong enough to "risk" playing players who may not be ready.
We can't carry a player as maybe some of the stronger teams can.
In the perfect world {or the one we should have been living in last August! ) we would have bought some players for now - ready to play guys - and some for the future who could have gone out on loan at Championship level sides to "harden" them up.
Perhaps Silva (and one or two of the others) need (s) to go out on loan in January but as he/ they is/ are (on) the bench that will require us to buy further players {FFP? } capable of playing now in January - Marcal types?

12 Nov 2020 22:50:55
Spiers tweeted Coady came into contact with someone who has C.V. hence why he wasn't playing tonight.

09 Nov 2020 12:38:11
I agree with Roy Keane in that Wolves do not play exciting brave football except for the odd five minutes here and there. The only exception being the Palace game. When they are exciting and brave, no one can beat us. Unfortunately, from before the end of last season, it's been the same situation. Last season we all put it down to fatigue. This season there is no excuse.

09 Nov 2020 20:43:53
Agree mate, it is time to try a new approach on the pitch. 4-4-2
Also var it's awful when it goes against us, but it will even itself out. I'm sure over the season,
We can't keep starting so sluggish in first half of our games, I can't weigh up why, it's as if we aren't prepared to express ourselves, then when we go behind we get going
Strange indeed.

09 Nov 2020 21:39:03
Said it before 4231 would be a ideal formation I think, but end of the day Nuno is manager not me and he knows a lot more than me.

10 Nov 2020 13:55:59
Greyleg Nono will never go 442 agree we should start every game the way se did agains Palace but for 90 mins not just second half 3 tough games comming up got to be on it from the start to finish.

11 Nov 2020 17:47:41
Moit been an oideya two git spellcheck les.

11 Nov 2020 19:30:58
Point taken Old Wolf senior moment Nuno LoL liking the black country spelling mate.

12 Nov 2020 19:01:10
Coady not even on the bench.
That's loyalty for you
Well done Southgate ☹️.

12 Nov 2020 20:38:45
Probably just annoyed that Coady has more of an influence on the team than he does. 🤣.

08 Nov 2020 23:35:11
Wolves was robbed again by VAR but we are wolves and we come back fighting all the way you can't put a pack down.
Watch this space Preston wolf the pack will be back.
Also wolves play fair without cheating to win.

09 Nov 2020 10:09:28
It wasn't VAR that robbed us. It was the ridiculous new hand ball rule and, moreover, the interpretation of it by moronic referees.

09 Nov 2020 10:56:47
On the other hand we would’ve lost against Palace without it, best not mention that though, realistically we’re not going to win many games averaging three shots on target per game and scoring on average one goal per game, it’s not really cheating to pass the ball forwards and put crosses into the box is it, although Nuno seems to discourage that sort of play.

09 Nov 2020 12:27:22
We lost because as an attacking force we were poor.

10 Nov 2020 16:23:28
SQ, we didn't win because as an attacking force we were poor.

07 Nov 2020 12:36:55
Any news on Adama new contract?

Have been thrown into the mix of rumours for Samuel Chukuweze Nigeria international winger at Villareal. he's also linked with lots of premier league sides.

Very good player. Like to see Adama kick on this season a bit more. Especially in the goals department.

07 Nov 2020 22:22:21
One change for tomorrow I’ve been told
Yow ain’t sin me rite.

08 Nov 2020 11:50:16
Probably marcal.

09 Nov 2020 11:44:23
Adama will probably be sold in January for a fraction of what he was valued at when he was a regular in the team, everyone was quick to praise Nuno for turning him into “a player”, an exiting attacking player at that, but then he decided there’s no place in his ultra defensive team formation so keeps him on the bench, moved on from last season when Jota, Traore and Raul were frightening defences up and down the Country, moved on in the wrong direction though, sell Jota (and Doc) leave Traiore out and leave one of the best centre forwards in World football struggling up front on his own, you couldn’t make it up, wonder if Nuno did, wouldn’t have thought destroying your own team would be part of the long term project.

09 Nov 2020 19:27:15
Oxley - totally understand your frustration but I think Nuno has previously done enough to be given a bit more leeway than perhaps you are willing to grant him.
Unquestionably we are not playing well - in fact we have been pretty awful for long periods in a number of games this year including the first half against Leicester- and results are poor. [The line that we are doing well misses the point that we have had a v favourable fixture list and indeed from the same games last year we had 4 more points! }
However we remain v solid at the back and have put together brief, (WELL VERY BRIEF) spells of good stuff - we just haven't, as Nuno commented, taken our chances.
If we had we could easily be sitting here with 6 wins a draw, (v MC), and just the defeat at WH.
I am concerned at both Traore's massive decline - if we sell him in J for.

09 Nov 2020 20:09:27
bother - typing v poor and sent by error.
If we sell Traore in Jan we will not get what we would have got if we had him sold in August and I fear that if you think Jota's going to come back and bite us by turning into a far better player than he showed he was at Wolves then Traore is going to swallow us whole.
He has the potential to be a top, top player but at the moment, in the handful of minutes he is playing each week, sadly he is looking v ordinary.
Just as worrying - perhaps more so as we are so reliant on him, is the poor run Jimenez is suffering at the moment.
Clearly the change in system we are supposedly employing is not working yet but it is still early days and there are green shoots.
Semedo is looking much better, (although he has v big shoes to fill), and Podence and Neto are both looking v promising.
The system - which I actually don't think is very different - still massively relies on the WBs to provide support/ attacking threat as the 2 mids sit v deep and we play 3cbs.
What has changed?
Semedo although improving is still a long way short of the man he replaced, Traore has fallen off a cliff and Moutinho who often opened teams up with his passing has grown old and has been replaced by the far more athletic but less talented Dendonker.
Sadly it now appears, (with the season over 20% gone), that we loused up the summer.
We were remiss in not buying a ready to play replacement/ support for Jimenez ( Silva from the v v few minutes we have seen is not ready and looks like he is some way off being so! If he was even close to ready we would have seen him for far more minutes! )
We didn't notice Moutinho had grown old (?! ) and bought a kid (for nigh on £20m) who doesn't even make the bench- despite the obvious problems in midfield as a project for the future!
In fact other than Marcal all the players we bought were for the future except Semedo who we had to buy because we gave Doherty away.
Despite all this we remain v competitive and just a tweak or two away from having a v good season - in a year when the league appears a mess and opportunity is screaming out.
If we don't successfully make those tweaks that lead to us scoring those goals that turn the draws to wins and even defeats like Leicester could have been a win it will be such a shame that we appear to have got our timing so wrong.
The decision that this was the year we were going to "change", effectively stepping back, coming at the very moment so many of our erstwhile rivals in the big 6 have floundered for various reasons AND teams who may have looked up to us like WH, AV, Everton, Southampton etc have moved forwards, means that instead of a potential dream season when we could have seriously challenged for Champions league we might end up mid table at best.

11 Nov 2020 22:17:12
We have good forwards and Coady but the team seems a bit uncertain after that.

Stars before lockdown like Adama and Boly aren't the same and the new players haven't yet staked their claim so we have Dendoncker and until last week Saiss as our regular consistent players can't wait for Semedo Marcal and Fabio Silva to show their skills.
