Been digging deeper and deeper with my "loose connections" and absolutely drawn a blank.
No news no rumours no gossip
Not a snippet, all keeping stum.

My gut feeling Doc sold to develope Adama as a wing back therefore allowing Neto more game time.
Maitland-Niles was nailed on to come into the squad filling at at right back left back or central midfield.
Then we try and be smart and penny pinching it goes tits up.
Jeff MOXshi suddenly feels out of his depth and turns to Mendez again
Mendes I believe will help Fosun and Nuno once more,
But if he can we must wake up and smell the coffee this at best is embarrassing.
Shi has to get results and is floundering out of his depth in the world of modern day football.
Dalrymple then Thelwell are major losse who should have been replaced with the best.
It's now crunch time.
Do you pant wetting sit on the fence or bury your head.
Ancelotti as I told you days ago shows what can be done if you dare to dream.
Finished in our shadow, but have showed the ambition, have the right recruitment in place, Mr Thelwell a big big loss I suggest.

I agree that Shi thinks he knows more than he does about football and should be involved in negotiations, at most. Now I'm not sure that is even the case.
He really has a self-inflated opinion of himself.
He said he knew all of the FFP rules and we still got fined so what does that tell you? Were they playing too cute with stocking the U23s and then playing them on the senior squad?

I agree with the Traore wing-back thing.

And I agree that the other teams we were near at the end of the season are buying and will get more points next season if their coaches don't turn out to be in over their heads. Add to that Everton.
We still have time to equal that buy getting 3 or 4 good "ready for primetime" players instead of trying to be cute and getting U23s and hope they can help.

Totally agree the realist. Notice the blinkered few have gone quiet. They too are beginning to smell trouble.

I'm just glad I don't live in your world, it has been proven time and again we don't leak transfer targets, sometimes you all read too much into everything which is why you get so many comments. Everything about you is negative, I couldn't cope with that so I believe absolutely nothing instead of hanging on rumour.

It's like readings death notices in the paper with some on you on here, nothing is ever good enough, I will support Wolves and the manager whatever happens, try having a bit of patience instead of the constant brain drain negative forecast.

It’s fascinating that a delay in announcing signings causes some on here to think that the club is imploding.
The loss of Thelwell has left a gap but we have a capable group of scouts, a backroom staff that is the envy of many, close connections to Jorge M. and of course Nuno himself so I don’t think that we struggle to identify suitable transfer targets the difficulty comes in securing their signature because if they are any good others will be chasing them as well.
Also worth noting that our present squad seems very tight knit so anyone joining has to buy into the squad ethic, if not the whole plan could be seriously set back.
I’m fully expecting good players to come in ——-but with no advance fanfare.

How many times does it need to be said? Wolves have never let on on any transfers until the deal is done.
No paper reported or knew about Neves, Patricio, Moutinho, Neto, Raul etc until the deal was done.

Indeed, Ancelotti does show what can be done with a team that has been in the top division longer than ANY other with the MANY financial and strategic facets that brings! OK Ed002 I now see why you get SO annoyed, it's like FFP doesn't even exist to some of the doughnuts on here! 🙄
Realist fella literally ALL of that is just your imagination, the club haven't said anything of the sort! As your making stuff up anyway you might as well make yourself happy, unless of course the club being in this imaginary peril you describe does make you happy?!
And SQ people have gone quiet cause frankly they are tired of responding to a group of grown men that show less patience than a creche at feeding time! Why don't we have this chat again at the end of the window?! If you are indeed right and (as you all seem so hopeful of) the club does indeed have problems then I'm happy to dicuss. Otherwise your posts just become the equivalent of an angry toddler shouting 'but I want it NOW' at a computer screen! 🤣🤣🤣.

Absolute rubbish.

Maybe it's the lockdown and losing sense on reality.

But Wolves have there targets and keep them quiet until the last minute.

Don't get me wrong not having European football will have put a dent in the plans for some of Nuno's recruitment plans.

However even the players we have been linked to will add to the squad:

Nunez-CB-Athletic Bilbao
Savic-CB-Athletico Madrid
Maitland-Niles-WB/ CM-Arsenal
Kessie-Cm-AC Milan
Lemar-WF-Athletico Madrid

Any 4 of those players are an improvement on last seasons squad. And I would imagine more youth players will be added as well.

I have posted if anyone on here is blinkered its me. I have tried not to get sucked into the war of words on here created by SQ and Paul Tam.
Difference of opinion is fine but The wolves are of paramount importance not a few posters on here being outrageous in their comments.
Say and call fans what you want Nothing can stop the feel good factor of being a true wolves fan.
A true fan will deal with frustration of any kind not by resorting to causing arguments between other fans who are genuinely wanting to see and read all good things about the club.
Thought the days of moaning and negative fans had gone since Nuno arrived but they're there in droves it seems the first time of any hurdle the club has to get over.
Wouldn't want negative fans next to me anywhere or anytime.

Can the usual suspects have a whip-round to place an obituary notice in The Times? Something like, Wolverhampton Wanderers, date of death September 2020. Cause of death: Lack of cash. Mourned by a few remaining happy clapper fans. RIP.

Fair enough Deep Throat everyone has an opinion.

However what makes you think Wolves are broke? We aren't in the same position as Newcastle for example.

As listed above some of the players wolves are linked to are better than anything we have been linked to in the last 40 years.

I understand the hunger for trophies and champions league football. I understand the gulf between the rest and the top 6.

But wolves are in the strongest position since the 1950's. We have less games this year and won't get every target as they will want European football before next year's euros. We need to keep our feet on the ground as see what the club can get together.

I'm sure it's easier than getting Neves, Jota, Boly, Moutinho, Raul, Traore, Neto and Rui to join us. And before anyone says Fosun don't spend. They have spent 200m+ in the past 4 years. Let that sink in. Probably more than the previous 25 years.

Madman. You completely missed the point. I was being sarcastic. The clue was when I said, can the usual suspects.

Wolves are not broke, far from it. Keep up! I was having a dig at the usual doom and gloom suspects.

Sorry Deep Throat. Some of the posts the past 10 days have been atrocious though.
I'm back on the valium with some of the pessimists comments. :)

You're welcome Madman. I agree about the atrocious posts. Some of them moaned at the start of last season about lack of Wolves signings. Like, Villa were buying all before them. (Look where Villa finished. ) . The season before they moaned that Fulham were buying all before them (Fulham blew a fortune and got relegated) . One of them even had it on good authority that there would be no takeover. Fosun took over shortly afterwards.

We are fortunate Deep Throat that we have players that can play in a number of positions and I one being serious am not too concerned at the moment. There is plenty of time in this window particularly with players being away on international duty. I'm sure we will have some additions but if not go with what we have. It's been way worse than this in the past. We're Wolves we'll be fine.

Madman. Yes linked until the price is revealed. Then that's it. They had their chance with the arsenal player and tried to screw them over. 20 million for a star in the making was a steal. And wolves tried to mug them further.

18.) 03 Sep 2020
03 Sep 2020 23:21:14
Madman. And what have the clubs above them spent. Probably into the billion and that's why they are the big clubs. 200 million. Chicken feed.

I disagree demon. I believe we get more value for money with the players we are recruiting.

Would you buy a car that you need to spend a billion pound on or a car that needs £200m that is more reliable and gets very similar results?

When you compare Wolves with Arsenal, Tottenham, Everton and Leicester it is clear our squad is competitive with those squads. If it weren't for the excellent Europa league campaign we would have finished 5th at the very least.

This is where you'll come back and say we needed to spend 200m last summer. I disagree we couldn't due to FFP or P&S and if we had got into Europe either through league, finishing 7th or winning europa we would be paying larger fines and destroying our credibility around the world. As I'm pretty sure it is frowned upon in Chinese culture to just spend like Chelsea and Man City.

And your comment about chicken feed shows your total lapse of where wolves are and where wolves are going. 6 years ago they were in league 1,4 years ago they finished 15th in the championship, for 3 straight seasons they have won championship, got to the final stages and finished 7th in the prem. And doubters out there think wolves and Fosun have given up now.

Give your heads a wobble.

Madman. Some people on here don't really get it about financial rules. One guy at the start of last season talked about relegation because we weren't spending big like Villa and others. The Fosun ten year plan is viable but we have to grow organically due to our relatively small financial resources. We had surprisingly early success which led some people to want the ten year objectives delivered right here and now. Leicester won the title a few years ago, but it was mainly due to other teams under performing. Leicester didn't have the finances to kick on from there and FFP would have been an obstacle too. They also challenged hard last season but couldn't sustain it as they are still held back financially, as we are too. We are certainly on a par with the teams you mention, and there is everything to play for.

04 Sep 2020 10:15:50
Quite right Madman, good post! Also Demon as your grasp of finances is clearly so strong please explain how exactly are we supposed to put billions in when we've already been done for FFP with the spending we currently have?! As ever I realise that I'm bringing logic to a place where it clearly doesn't exist but please do take us through your accounting genius?! 🤣.
