Adama to Tottenham for 45. Never wanted to keep him more than going into this season. Especially with Raul back.

01 Aug 2021 11:52:13
Rumoured that Wolves are interested in Aaron Ramsey. A strange one to me, he's 30 and costly, he may have experience but isn't he the wrong age range. Moutino is 34 coming 35 so both together in midfield would be aged. Wolves may view him as a stop-gap pending the younger players coming through but that's an expensive stop gap. Ramsey's wages would not be sustainable either, so on balance I hope it's not true. Can do better with the likes of Paulinha, Cavhalio IMO. What a mistake it was letting Goncalves go.

01 Aug 2021 14:00:31
If FOSUN have ambition then Ramsey could fit well sharing the Moutinho spot and part insurance against Neves leaving us at a late stage as his head is being turned. Nothing against Paulinho or Cavhalio but are they on Wolves radar stil?

01 Aug 2021 15:57:56
Just need to match his £400k per week salary.

01 Aug 2021 16:12:37
That is a shame JasM.

01 Aug 2021 18:56:03
Our club is a investment for fosun nothing else buying 17to 23r olds for 5/ 10/ 15k players and selling them on two three years later with the odd exception for 10/ 30k profit .
Fosun will keep us in the premiership aways finishing between 7th and 15th with the occasional cup run that we might be granted .
We have to remember we are not a family club anymore family clubs do not survive in the premiership.
Regarding our team / squad
To obtain a top half finish we need a good established centre half plus a forward a proven goal scorer .
Neves/ Traore / podence who knows if they’ll be with us this year or next but fosun will have it covered .

30 Jul 2021 13:07:56
Rumours that Nuno is considering selling Doherty (again) . He could fit in well in a 4-4-2 and wouldn't break the bank.

30 Jul 2021 13:43:40
No he can't play in a 442. Do you not remember when Zenga and Lambert were at the club and Doherty looked inept as a RB.

30 Jul 2021 14:17:29
Doherty looked inept at RB for Spurs.

30 Jul 2021 15:11:27
Was Doherty inept in a back four when we knocked Liverpool out of the FA Cup in January 2017 in a back four consisting of Stearman Hause Coady and Doherty?

30 Jul 2021 15:39:53
At Anfield.

30 Jul 2021 16:06:56
Did he have an outstanding game on that day? I remember the whole team playing well but it's not like we played the strongest Liverpool team. Mind you, Coady also had a good game at RB, maybe we should play him there more often.

Doherty is an average RB/ LB but a better WB. Unfortunately Lage plays 442.

30 Jul 2021 16:35:50
Make your mind up Jas. Is Doherty inept or average?
Who would you play out of our current squad at RB?

30 Jul 2021 17:02:36
Both.

If the squad was as it is now including injuries, my team to face Leicester would be:

GK: Sa
RB: Semedo
LB: Ait-Nouri
CB: Mosquera
CB: Saiss
CDM: Coady
CM: Neves
AMF/ No 10: Silva
RW: Trincao
LW: Adama
CF: Jimenez

Subs: Ruddy, MGW, Marcal, Hoever, Moutinho, Podence, Dendoncker.

30 Jul 2021 17:17:03
E. We severely embarrassed a depleted Liverpool side at Anfield in the FA Cup. Great, but so what? Happens all the time, PL teams field weakened sides against lower-league cup opposition! By your thinking, we should be re-signing Stearman. He scored that day. Costa played a blinder. Bring him back too? Fact is, Doc is a far better WB than RB.

30 Jul 2021 17:27:28
Doherty is in the past, he was quick enough to run off for the coin. We move forward.

30 Jul 2021 19:35:08
That’s some team Jas but none of your starting eleven have scored a goal so far in pre-season and who is going to take the free kicks and corners?

30 Jul 2021 19:53:33
E from Wombourne, you really have to put a negative spin on everything don't you.

But to answer your question about Free kicks and corners - Trincao to take the free kicks and corners with Neves to take the direct free kicks.

I might pre-empt your next question. Jose Sa to stand between the posts and try to stop the penalties.

30 Jul 2021 21:11:11
@Italia Wolf - Doherty didn’t jump, he was pushed.

31 Jul 2021 07:44:05
That team won't be the team that starts at Leicester.
I reckon they will sign a few before then.
Im not comfortable playing 4 at the back I don't think we have the cbs nor the midfielders to play that system.
I can see he is playing with 4 in preseason. But I reckon it will be 343 attacking 523 when defending. As we still haven't added Coady or Traore to the team yet.
I think the change to 442 will be gradual when signings are made between now and September.

31 Jul 2021 10:39:14
Why would Lage play 442 all pre season and then revert back to a back 3 or back 5 against Leicester?
Doesn't that defeat the purpose of pre season?

31 Jul 2021 14:58:09
It does Jas that's true but Coady hasn't been available so far and surely if Lage is open minded he will start by playing the optimum system for the players he has available and try to evolve the playing style as the season progresses. I'll make a judgement after the Celta Viga game as probably the Leicester line up will start that game however at some point this season I feel we will need to revert to a back 5 if things go pear shaped. Although I hope not it may be earlier than we think.

31 Jul 2021 20:39:09
343 today cheers Jas. 😂.

31 Jul 2021 21:18:00
And according to some on here who watched the game, we were poor. I can't comment because I didn't watch it.

31 Jul 2021 21:53:21
I watched the game and I didn’t think we were poor, we played a lot of rapid one touch and looked comfortable most of the time something that became less and less as time went on under Nuno. Yes we do have defensive aerial problems I hope that will be sorted, we all know that so Bruno certainly knows. Look forward with confidence, we’re all on the same side don’t be negative.

01 Aug 2021 09:51:48
Otasowie? Didn’t feature in Las Palmas game and missing from Stoke game squad. Injured or what?

01 Aug 2021 10:19:45
Not injure we are swapping him for docherty.

01 Aug 2021 12:38:08
I have watched all our pre season games and we still do not carry any threat from our midfield when on the attack, I am still not convinced that this squad of players will keep us in the Prem.

01 Aug 2021 21:59:32
Jas mate its the best system with our squad.
If you play Coady you have to play 3 at the back. He isn't quick enough to play in a 4.
Arguably Donk and Saiss are the best cbs at the club. They play for there countries there and I would say are better suited to 4 at the back.
Id love to see us transition smoothly from a 442 433 and 343 to 541 to close out games.
Bruno get the players that can transition smoothly. Sort the defence, strengthen midfield with a box to box midfielder and creative midfielder. And sell Cutrone and Mir for Carlos Vinicius and Leao.

30 Jul 2021 12:49:49
Has anyone got any transfer news. Its quieter on here than Wolves player search. Looks as though the kids are going to be busy this season. No sign if any experience coming in.

27 Jul 2021 21:55:19
Aaron Ramsey to Wolves rumour. Could be one of the more experienced players Wolves now need. Rather see him and an experienced CB soon apart from replacing any departures as and when.

28 Jul 2021 07:44:33
I don't believe there is anything in this story his wages are too high for a start.

28 Jul 2021 08:04:58
OK, the suspense of the next arrival is getting too exciting for me. Waiting and hoping!

28 Jul 2021 20:35:40
Just saw a flying pig.

27 Jul 2021 19:57:34
Liverpool are eyeing up a bid of 30m plus players for Adama Traore.

27 Jul 2021 21:36:04
Let him go. His contracts talks have been going on forever. 30m is decent for us to reinvest. He didn't do anything amazing at the Euros.
The club messed up letting Jota go before Traore.
But if the players head isn't here we need to get the best money and move forward.

27 Jul 2021 23:14:09
You have to get on the pitch a bit more than 10 minutes to do something amazing to be fair!

28 Jul 2021 07:35:15
A unique player. Excellent for a Top 4/ 6 side to come on as a Sub. to influence/ change the game. Spain's manager failed to use him that way and that cost Spain in my opinion.
However as a starter, despite the excellent coaching from Nuno, not good enough. His decision-making poor.
I would like to keep him as a Bench option, but if we need the funds for strengthening midfield and another striker, sell him.

28 Jul 2021 08:49:17
Would make sense for Bruno to work with Traore for next few weeks to see if he can find a way of getting the best out of him. Also would provide an opportunity for the player to know whether or not he is going to be central to a new playing style. If it is not to be then there is time to move him out before the window closes. Given his attributes it is surely an intriguing challenge for a coach to optimise Traore’s impact.

29 Jul 2021 14:35:15
Traore has said that he wants to play, rather than being a sub. He has more chance with Wolves than Liverpool or Chelsea. These two clubs most probably see him as a super-sub only, not a starter.

26 Jul 2021 10:00:11
Apparently FOSUN turned down a bid for the club from a Russian businessman called Leonid Fedun last month? Probably not true but my mate is adamant and he does consultancy for foreign investment groups. Owns Spartak Moscow too supposedly, anyone else heard similar?

26 Jul 2021 11:32:31
It may or may not be true but according to his wikipedia entry he is worth 8.5 billion dollars made largely from petrochemicals so fits the profile of a billionaire EPL owner.

26 Jul 2021 15:45:45
It woukdnt surprise me Robin Wolf.
When you think about it investors would like to take the opportunity if owners are struggling financially. From what youve said i'd assume it was very early talks to see if Fosun were open to the idea.
A clear no was given.
More evidence of no financial issues at the wolves although fans and media try and cause a sh*tstorm.

25 Jul 2021 04:36:23
Samuel Umtiti is mulling over a move to Wolverhampton from Barcelona due to a pay cut in wages. The two clubs are hopeful Jorge Mendes can help broker the deal.

25 Jul 2021 12:22:08
I hope so. Then he can play alongside: Leao, Matthew Hoppe, Guedes, Cakir, Diego Costa and Ferro who still haven't signed for us despite you giving us exclusive ITK snippets over the last few weeks.

25 Jul 2021 13:14:55
Another revelation by ITK RM J! what I admire about this poster is the so far 100% accuracy of their posts #ITK.

25 Jul 2021 13:21:12
More chance of getting Nefertiti.
Sorry but all this endless click bait stuff is getting a bit tedious now. Very rare any of it happens!

25 Jul 2021 13:34:58
@ITK RM J - any substance in Wolves signing Sporting Lisbon's Matheus Nunes? as person #ITK you'll surely know if this one is true or just clickbait? #ITK.

25 Jul 2021 14:09:01
Let’s face it folks, the last 3 or 4 years the majority of our signings have been made without any of us being aware until the ink was dry. All the ITK manage to achieve is to build a fantasy smokescreen for what is really going on.

25 Jul 2021 14:50:16
I'm not defending ITK but this window is exciting. Obviously there is no smoke without fire. Players linked to other clubs is unsettling. And players linked to the club are exciting.
Has this rumour circulated more because Boly got injured? Probably.
But as I've said before you look at other clubs finances and you look at where our team was the end of last season. Tgis is the perfect window for changes and to go a new direction under Bruno.
I just hope we see some pace in defence added.
A box to box midfielder.
An attacking midfielder.
And some support for Raul.
Obviously there are loads of question marka over other players aswell like Cutrone? Neves? Moutinho? Traore? Saiss? Neto? Boly? Coady?
But looks a happy camp in Marbella let's add to it and push on.

25 Jul 2021 15:06:07
I seem to remember complaining that Debbie McGee did exactly what he is claiming ITK RM J is doing now, a matter of pots and kettles maybe--- indeed doubtless.

25 Jul 2021 17:18:23
Doe ITK stand for I troll knowingly?

25 Jul 2021 18:35:45
Yes MMan. I too hope we add as you request and push on.
We also need happy players to play for positions and really give Bruno tough decisions if top 6 is the ambition. COYW.

22 Jul 2021 09:24:12
Looks like we’re on the verge of losing Neves to a bigger Club where he’ll fit straight in and show everyone what we already know, no doubt when he’s playing with better quality players and turns out to be the best passer of a football in the Premiership, the powers that be and a lot of fans will be left wondering why he couldn’t reach his potential at Molineux, the answer should and will be blindingly obvious.

22 Jul 2021 10:05:54
In my opinion because the previous manager 'mis-used' him for the past 18 or so months. The talent is so obvious with Neves and we should be building a side around him and making him Captain.

22 Jul 2021 10:42:39
Totally agree with that, he could be world class, seems like he has been held back last two seasons under nuno.

22 Jul 2021 12:11:13
World Class? Come off it, Tibsy. That would mean he'd be selected in midfield for a world team at the World Cup. He has considerable potential yes, but not that much. He's too slow for starters and his shooting boots have gone missing. The World Class banner gets banded about too much and, to my mind, the only Premier league midfielder who fits the bill is De Bruyne.

22 Jul 2021 12:43:56
If Neves goes he goes but it must be for the right price and that money must be invested back into the squad.
Considering we beat that so called bigger club with better quality players twice last season I beg to differ on quality part.

22 Jul 2021 14:29:20
Old wulf “could be” I said, has the potential.

22 Jul 2021 14:30:48
If Neves is world-class, he's just had a pretty average season for club and country in 2020/ 21. I don't really buy the theory that he needs the best players to play with. Quite the opposite in fact, he should stand out when playing with 'inferior' players surely? His best season for us, arguably, was in the championship, playing with and against 'inferior' players. This is where his reputation was made.

22 Jul 2021 14:59:03
Id say keep but sign some players to support him in midfield.
Palhinha, Gedson Fernandes come on Jeff pull your socks up let's win those first 3 games.
Com'on me babbies. 😂😂😂.

22 Jul 2021 15:19:28
Its a shame he hasn't scored the goals we had hoped for but is still a very talented player, but as others say lacks pace. Maybe the previous manager used Ruben in the role he was best suited.

He couldn't get on the field in either role in the Euros when Fernandes and other players were withdrawn, our 30+ playmaker Moutinho was used, so that's club and country thet rate Moutinho as a better bet in that role.

22 Jul 2021 15:38:06
Signing Moutinho was Neves issue. He ran midfield in Championship, but Moutinho took over most free kicks. Neves only had a couple of shooting opportunities each game. Used too deep in premiership and Nuno shackled him. He is a World class passer of the ball, but agree he has other areas that need improving, but like I said above held up by Nuno and Moutinhi. If he stays I expect better performances under Bruno.

22 Jul 2021 19:48:57
I don't see Neves as anything like World Class. He has not performed in the last 2 seasons anything like de Bruyne or David Silva, both of whom would rank as great mfs. He shone in the Championship, had great moments in our first season in the Prem, but sadly has not fulfilled promise shown. If he was World Class he would have dominated play. I see him now as a useful squad player, but not the answer to our midfield needs.

22 Jul 2021 20:36:59
Interesting though that whilst Neves and Dendonker are training with Wolves in Marbella that neither have been part of the OR photo shoots. Certainly something is going on . Interesting times let’s hope Fosun and Lage get it right before the 14th August.

22 Jul 2021 21:41:39
Dendoncker isn't there according to E&S. He's back on Saturday after being given extended leave.

22 Jul 2021 23:01:59
Funny how Neves is getting a bit of a slating, five seasons ago we couldn't have imagined a player of his magnitude here. I believe he was being played out of position by Nuno.

23 Jul 2021 00:16:52
Debbie, totally agree with you. A few weeks ago when Nuno left, everyone was shocked and stated that Fosun would regret it but now these same fans are slating him saying that he played Neves in the wrong position and he had falling outs with players and he actually wasn't the messiah. Personally, I think Neves was looking tired last season as was most of the squad due to the sheer number of games we played in 2020 and the short break between that and the 20/ 21 season.

23 Jul 2021 09:54:58
If all the rumours are true, we won't be able to field 11 players at this rate!

23 Jul 2021 12:44:19
Neves isn't yet world class but describing him as "a useful squad player" is harsh - do you really think Man U and Arsenal would seriously be looking at a useful squad player from Wolves!

No they are looking at someone they think could be world class and will fit into their first teams now.

Wolves also wouldn't price a "useful squad player" at 50mill if they are looking to sell, so either the club rate him as more than a squad player and/ or they don't want to sell.

23 Jul 2021 15:36:41
OldWulf de Bruyne is certainly a world class midfielder but really the only one in the PL? I think Kante might disagree.

23 Jul 2021 16:00:35
Fair play, Window, when played in his proper position Kante is although he may actually disagree because I understand he's the least prima donnaish footballer around. Good on him for that. Doesn't he drive a clapped out mini?

24 Jul 2021 10:22:51
Is De Bruyne world class never won champions league nor international trophy?

World class is a special type of player that can change a teams pergormances from there performances alone. Ronaldo and Messi definitely. I'd put Chiellini and Bonucci in that category won numerous trophies with Juventus and Italy.

Id say De Bruyne, Fernandes, Hazard (in the past) had the potential to be world class. Until you have that game and performances that makes the difference you aren't world class.

24 Jul 2021 10:25:14
Add to that Wolves players had chances to show they were world class in the Fa cup semi and europa qf. So are they all good enough for the next step up to top 6,top 4,top 2, winner, champions league knock outs, champions league semis and winner?
Jurys out in my opinions. Have they reached a limit? Are we going to support them?

24 Jul 2021 16:31:00
It's a team game, Madman, and winning non domestic trophies has little relevance to determining whether a player is world class or not. If you don't think De Bruyne is world class then I'm a Dutchman.

24 Jul 2021 18:12:23
Harry Kane is another top international who has won nothing or near to nothing.

25 Jul 2021 01:17:51
My point is world class is easily bandied around.

Zidane, Ronaldo, Messi, Maradona, Roberto Carlos, Maldini, Cafu are world class. Careers show that.

Id argue Kante is very close.

De Bruyne, Fernandes, Mbappe, Kane, Sterling are all very capable players but they need the next level in my opinion.

25 Jul 2021 09:26:04
Agree Madman, but its not easy to judge current players with former players, fitness standards have improved across all sports (not just football) which is a pre-requisite to compete, no matter how good you are.

As a slight after thought I would also add that skills that were rare or innovative 50 years ago now appear far more common. This applies to many sports, a football example being Rivelinos free kick 1970 world cup against Czechoslovakia, TV experts raved about it then but now many players can bend a ball around a defensive wall.

21 Jul 2021 19:20:12
Looks like discussions with sampdoria are heating up as they are keen to buy Cutrone. Such a great shame that the guy didn't work out at Wolves, however I hope Fosun learn from this and only purchase players who are interested in the project as it was clear that Patrick was not at all interested in playing for us which probably led to Nuno sitting him on the bench and loaning him out to other clubs. Just hope we can recoupe some of our money and invest in the squad.

21 Jul 2021 21:53:54
ITK RM J hasn't posted about this, so it mustn't be true #ITK :)

21 Jul 2021 21:54:28
Abit unfair on Patrick Wonky. From the games against Everton and the few europa appearances he came on and tried to change games and chased loose ends.
He clashed with Nuno from what I can see. But Lage should learn we need a bigger squad and we need to rotate players in the squad. I personally see Silva as a similar type of player to Raul. Obviously 11 years younger and without the goal scoring exploits just now.
I just tgink we need a clever runner who can link play but stretch back fours abit more than our current forwards. Vinicius and Leao would be good and could play as a front 3.
May need more wingers if Traore goes.

21 Jul 2021 22:58:40
Don't care what anyone says I will stand by what i've always said Nuno ruined Cutrones career imo.
Cutrone looked ok Saturday he certainly wants to play you can tell by his body language he just wants a fair chance and hopefully he gets it and gets his careeer back on track, be it with us or elsewhere.

22 Jul 2021 01:22:55
Be fair Rated fella, he's now been cut by about four different managers at this stage (in fact five with Lage) . Not saying Nuno didn't have his quirks with selection (he definitely did) but sooner or later Cutrone has to ask himself why he's not hitting his potiential yet and it can't just be the managers at fault! 👍.

22 Jul 2021 07:30:17
Who knows! He might slide into Lage's system and find himself at home at wolves and snub any transfer, however that is a very very unlikely scenario because as I say; he never wanted to move to England and play for us and I think it is that attitude that tipped Nuno off. I think if we can sell him and put that money toward the Leao signing then I think that would be good business.

22 Jul 2021 12:12:47
Beat me to it, Bully.

22 Jul 2021 12:41:34
Yeah bullys and wonky you're right guys, just me blowing of a bit of steam lol.

22 Jul 2021 17:13:59
Haha, no probs Rated. To be honest that's why I've been a little quiet on here of late, I find that silly season can get a bit too silly for me! 👍.

22 Jul 2021 18:47:00
If Mr. Cutrone was as good as he thinks he is none of us would be having this conversation on this thread!
