Lampard sacked, interesting to see how they respond against us on Wednesday.

Often the players will play much better in order to impress the incoming manager.
Hopefully I'm wrong 🤞.

My fear to NikNak.


3.) 25 Jan 2021 14:33:39
Yes it was the worst scenario possible ahead of Wednesday.


4.) 25 Jan 2021 16:15:14
A win on Wednesday would be massive for a number of reasons.
1. Stating the obvious but 3 points are 3 points and the sooner we are ‘safe’, the better.
2. Need to arrest present worrying decline ASAP.
3. Much needed confidence boost for all but from some individuals in particular, none more than the captain.
4. A high profile win, especially with increased interest following Lampard’s dismissal, and hopefully a move up the table, might just help persuade any player we are trying to tempt to join us, in the final days of the window.

I reckon a draw against Chelsea but there no reason why it's not possible we get a win.
Its football anything is possible. 😀
No harm at all being glass half full.
We got games coming thick and fast hoping we go on an undefeated run with mostly wins the odd draw won't be too bad.
COYW.

Agree mate, now's the time to beat them, can't wait for kick off,
2-1,for us, netto 1st goal.

I got horrible feeling that this result could have big impact on Nunos and wolves future, poor defeat and relegation battle, Nunos term with us likely to be over. Convincing win with Jose to come and we start climbing again. Nuno smiling again and we regain our confidence. Chelsea as you've said will be playing up for the new boss, a crunch game, a pivotal game. I'm more nervous over this one after the performance at chorley when, quite frankly we looked clueless, and nuno seemed as if his heart was no longer part of the pack.

Scott Sellars appointed as Technical Director according to the clubs Website. Looks like Thelwell is being missed!

That's ONE positive move at least because I did feel with Shi in the job it was he driving the purchases and not Nuno.
There was no Nuno stamp on a few of the signings we made close season, Silva the most obvious.
The sooner we get a Laurie Dalrymple type back too the better for me.
Positive move Wolves, well done.

I do not think that we should buy Vitiha/ Nouri, I believe the cost will be £20 mil each. I would buy Niles/ Eriksen who I think we can get for £35 mil the pair, we have to many youngsters who are not up to premier standard just look at our bench and the first team. it is ok to say they are for the future but if we are not careful we will go down and what will happen to them then. I hope we can beat the Baggies or I dread to think the reaction to Nuno after the match.


3.) 14 Jan 2021 22:10:51
Nouri, vitinha, are our future, along with hoever, Neto
I would go for eriksen, deffo,
To lose to the baggies is unthinkable, that game is our catapult, to FA cup success, and powering up the league.


4.) 15 Jan 2021 00:12:21
Bazza-£35m for the pair behave! Arsenal wanted £25m alone for Niles last time round and if reports are anything to go by they wanted most of it upfront! That's before you add to the fact both would be expecting six figure salaries! I said it before my complaints about Fosun aren't necessarily blame, I think they are stuck in the realities of financially balancing the maintanince of the team along with progression. It's why they've gone for youth, now we can (and do) all debate the possible side effects of that model but I think this whole 'lost interest' line is just to easy. You don't get the portfolio that Fosun have by losing interest in projects, I think they've just hit a brick wall and have tried to be a bit too clever with the fix. We might of gotten away with say two out of Silva, Rayan or Vittinha. If a seasoned Pro had come in at CD to support Raul or Cm to cover Moutinho. I think it's the having to do it all at once that's caused the results. That's how I see it anyway 👍.

Bazza, Greyleg and Bully - From a football perspective in 2021/ 2 and possibly beyond Niles and Ericksen are better and safer options than the 2 boys we have on loan (Although Ericksen is, at 28 much older and hasn't performed well for a while now. )
I also think that the fees wouldn't be that much different - I think Bully is correct in that your pair would be a bit more than 35 but probably not much more than 40-45 still v comparable with the 40 for two, as yet still unproven prospects.
However Bully is def correct about wages which will be much higher - Ericksen's in particular.
But most importantly neither would come - Niles wouldn't come when we were looking like a much better bet than Arsenal so he def won't want to come now we are on the verge of a relegation battle - even if he isn't getting much game time at Arsenal and Ericksen is probably looking for Champions league teams or Europa at the very worst.
Bazza however I also agree with you, in that at this point, it is v hard to justify £40m for 2 kids who are currently not looking like they are worth the money when we have such obvious and pressing needs elsewhere for those funds.
So whilst I would have loved us to have signed Ericksen and possibly Niles sadly it didn't happen before and is even likely to happen now.


6.) 15 Jan 2021 16:31:45
Bully - good analysis of issue. Injuries, the need to " progress" and develop for the future all within the constraints of FFP have unfortunately meant the route that we went down was - with the benefit of hindsight - high risk and that risk has blown up in our faces.
Vitnha is a gamble that may, if he is ever played, come off. RAN with Marcal signed, (and Otto due to return later on in the season), might have looked an unnecessary gamble but with both now injured it wasn't (as we thought we were selling Vinagre and buying RAN for less it may also have been seen as a no brainer - sadly the sale of Vinagre wasn't a no brainer just a no! ) and Silva - well enough has been said.
2 more experienced Pros as stated before would have de-risked the strategy. However to finance them the "Jewel in the crown" of the strategy would have had to been foregone and the club wasn't willing to lose its diamond to buy those pros.

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.

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.

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.

Harry Kane is another top international who has won nothing or near to nothing.

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.

Bigcheese, yes like I said hopefully Raul and Jonny Castro Otto will be upgrades on last season.

I tend to agree with the later posts and am trying to console myself with the fact that hopefully Raul and Jonny Castro Otto will be upgrades on last season when back. Hopefully we won't lose anyone else. However the reality seems to be that maybe (for whatever reason) we aren't able to sign experienced players in the mould of Rui Patricio and Joao Moutinho on a regular basis and at an affordable price.

The lack of pre-season was a big deal last year Ken (IMO) . Most weeks we were playing twice due to the later start which took a toll on a smaller weaker squad carrying injuries. That said the younger players from last season should have a little more experience and even though we do still have many young squad players hopefully last seasons youngsters (Silva, Hoever, RAN and co) will show an improvement this time out enabling the squad to be less reliant on raw U23's making their initial step up to the first team.

Assuming 2 in midfield and he stays, I suspect Neves will be first choice after that who knows. I would like to see a system that can switch to 3 CB from 2 as Rated mentioned but having the personnel is key obviously. Best to just see who signs and what Bruno has in mind as many of the squad are literally still on the beach so to speak.
