Nuno will be released from his contract at the end of the season and be replaced by Paulo Fonseca.

E from Wombourn

1.) 19 Jan 2021 19:53:52
Where did you get this info from?

2.) 19 Jan 2021 20:38:17
Utter tosh, if Nuno goes it'll be him walking.

3.) 19 Jan 2021 23:55:31
I don't think Nuno would accept just 'being released' from his new contract. If Nuno wants to go somewhere else (and no club with money is hiring right now) Fosun will want mega compensation. He will go without the unlimited support of Uncle Jorge as Fosun will see to that.

Why would Fosun sack him they know why he's struggling right now.

Good research on Fonseca but we have as much chance of pulling him away from his Roma project as tempting Pep away from Citeh. If Nuno doesn't get us into Europe then that severely limits the quality of the next coach. If he gets us into Europe why would he leave?

We need to go back to five at the back as we look shaky with a four and it hinders the wing backs. Posters saying Cutrone wasn't good enough when he was only here for twelve games and someone had seen enough potential to sign him for £16million from Milan at age 21.Cutrone must think himself good enough if he was banging on Nunos door asking to play instead of Raul.

E from Wombourn

1.) 07 Jan 2021 18:49:19
Hope he proves the doubters wrong E. Did not see enough of him myself to form an opinion.

2.) 08 Jan 2021 08:31:41
Cutrone did work hard and put himself about. He needed a run in the team. I’m excited to see what he can do. If he gets that first goal early on his confidence will soar!

Still think a cheeky 6-month loan for Origi suits everyone. Need some power up front and Origi can play across to the left or ST. A scorer of important goals which could see Wolves creep up the table.

No further investment and Wolves look like finishing lower mid table. 12-15th sadly.

3.) 08 Jan 2021 08:42:16
Agree pal
Lost his way but everyone should get a second chance.
The pizza man might just deliver.

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.

Played well against Arsenal last night. Good result, just hoping Raul is okay.

2.) 30 Nov 2020 10:17:53
Operation for fractured skull. Wishing speedy recovery for him, football out the window in regard to that. Get well Raul!

What a night to make you a proud fan though. Biggest show of resolve I've seen from this team.

3.) 30 Nov 2020 11:59:17
Only watched the game this morning so bit late with comments.
First well done Rated - called for 4 2 3 1 and got it and didn't it do well! {Semedo in fact played so far forward it was almost the 3331 that I suggested - or am I being optimistic}
Unlike many posters on various other Wolves sites I didn't think the Jimenez incident was anything other than a clash of heads {other posters were calling for a card - red - for Luiz}
But not happy with the "penalty" - don't blame the ref as it was v fast and hard to be sure in real time but Andre Mariner { fresh from a poor game last week when he certainly didn't cover himself in glory with a weak and less than balanced performance} should be thoroughly ashamed of himself for missing, despite having the option to watch it in slow motion a often as he liked, what in fact was a clear foul. Why indeed was he given Wolves twice in a row particularly after a poor game when he had seemingly favoured the opposition the week before and in a fair world, obviously not the one in which we live, what punishment should he receive. A player would be removed from the firing line after two games as poor as that - so will he be suspended?
Surely he won't be given a Wolves game again this year?
Moans - didn't finish game off - still missing a fair few chances and retreated for last 20 + minutes into a passive negative shell that has cost us so often in the past I'm not sure why we still do it.
Pluses - lots. Marcal v v solid and despite RAN's positives surely Marcal now plays on the left of defence either in a 3,4 or 5.
Neto and Podence continue to be excellent indeed improving- "new" system seems to help them. Traore continued his 2nd half re Saints performance - almost back to best and despite my earlier negativity have to say Moutinho was superb again but this time for the whole 90 mins not just the last 25
Little shout also for Silva who, with his first meaningful minutes, did ok.
Patricio - 7 {had nothing to do}
Semedo - 6 {see comments of previous games - although even better going forwards than normal}
Boly 7
Coady 7
Marcal - 8
Moutinho - 8
Dendonker -5 {was not as involved as normal and surely needs to improve his finishing}
Traore 7 (still frustrates and also should be doing far better with his goal scoring chances)
Podence 9 ( not sure why he came off! )
Neto 9 (superb! )
Jimenez - n/ a
Silva - 6 ( ok. v composed and linked well - hopefully his nose for goal will mean that a few of the half chances that came his way will be converted in the future)

4.) 30 Nov 2020 13:32:39
35million for Silva . WHY?

5.) 30 Nov 2020 14:31:07
Give him a bit of time only 18, they obviously see something in him to shell out that sort of doe.

6.) 30 Nov 2020 15:59:29
Bad news on Raul. Do we need to dip into the market or can we adapt?

7.) 30 Nov 2020 17:33:34
Personally I think we will bring a striker in.
My preference Ivan Toney.

8.) 30 Nov 2020 18:33:24
I think it's a little early to start talking replacements. too soon comes to mind.

I don't think Ivan Toney will ever make an elite level player.

If we go for anyone I truly hope its Matheus Cunha brazilian from Hertha Berlin. He will be truly world class in couple years . Plus linked with us before.

9.) 30 Nov 2020 19:17:23
I reckon origi on loan if he gets the ammunition he could score 10 league come January.

10.) 30 Nov 2020 20:37:14
Origi is a very decent shout on loan. Is there any ruling to get an emergency early loan for situations like this.

11.) 30 Nov 2020 21:47:02
Tedski- Was Rooney worth £25m to United after 3/ 4 months in the squad then!? Mind you, retrospectively was £25m a lot to pay for a player that went on to break the clubs high scoring record?! Of course I'm not guaranteeing Silva can/ will do that but I am pointing out that your complaint isn't about the player (Silva) its about investing in potential! Always going to be a gamble, always going to divide opinion BUT to suggest that Fabio should have repaid his fee within 16 weeks at the tender age of 18 to be honest is laughable! Don't get me wrong one day you may be right but let's wait and see before judging the value eh?! 👍
Personally I was VERY impressed by how much he'd already come on from the first app. Held the ball up well and played a big part in a goal and should have had a VERY good/ selfless assist if Adama could finish! 🐺.

12.) 01 Dec 2020 06:29:12
Very happy to wait for Silva to shine. It's just that 35M (I read somewhere that was cheap) and being called a 'generational talent' conjours up images of a Messi a Ronaldo or a Zidane. He doesn't really seem much better in his playing position than any other 18yr old at Wolves.

Something isn't quite right. It has to be that he hasn't settled yet and still getting to grips with the physicality and pace of the English football amongst other things. Nuno, Mendes, Fosun and the scouts can't get something like that wrong.

Good luck to him. He will definetly get chances in the team now.

13.) 01 Dec 2020 16:48:02
Toms Tatters : A “clash of heads” is an accidental coming together when two (or more) players are actually challenging for the ball, a player who runs ten yards directly at an opponent arrives after the ball is headed away not only endangering opponents but even himself is at the very least “reckless”and needs to be looked by the “powers that be”, Luiz needs taking out of the game for a few games for the safety of himself and others.

14.) 01 Dec 2020 20:01:53
You must have been watching something else then Oxley. It was a clear accident but luckily Raul is on the road to recovery.

15.) 01 Dec 2020 20:55:09
Behave Oxley! 🙈 I can't stand Luiz and think the guys a donkey but I don't think he could have done that intentionally even if he wanted too! It was only reckless cause he miss timed the jump but that happens especially on corners! Thank god no one at the club has taken the same line as you cause it would be embarrassing. Coady said it himself, it's a game there are risks! Doesn't mean someone has to be at fault. Besides which I would point out that Rauls head was in the same place (which was kinda the problem), so just because Raul came off worse why then does that make it just Luiz fault?! I wish Raul nothing but good thoughts and a speedy recovery but if you want a sport without risk get some chess on TV! If there's contact there's risk simple as that 👍.

16.) 01 Dec 2020 23:47:42
Defo accidental clash of heads however Luiz hand in Jimenezs mouth was dirty play imo could of ripped his jaw out too.

But what's important now is Rauls recovery and health.

We need West Brom to get a draw with Manchester United.

E from Wombourn

1.) 25 Nov 2020 21:36:04
We never need that lot to get anything.

2.) 26 Nov 2020 11:01:48
Now we need Sheff Utd to beat West Brom.

3.) 28 Nov 2020 11:25:51
Id take 17th place now if the rubbish got relegated and folded as a club.

4.) 01 Dec 2020 21:43:54
No way Ragingbull West Brom can fight their own battles they are 14th at best and are making up numbers in the premier but we can finish better than last season our league position is good already I am going 60 points.

5.) 13 Dec 2020 18:08:54
we really need Liverpool to get back into the game with Fulham - can't afford for the teams below us to start to close in on our point total as can't see ours rising any time soon.

6.) 13 Dec 2020 21:23:22
Bad results today. Arsenal aren't really a serious rival as they can and will go and spend tens of millions this Jan plus you know they will get a few results from dodgy decisions as league "cant be without them" but Burnley and Fulham who were well adrift are now a bit closer to us and with momentum
Wolves at Turf Moor is now a must not lose game!
Not looking forward to Brighton either - where we have truly awful record - first game of the New Year.

7.) 13 Dec 2020 23:42:28
Just watched the Fulham game on MotD - thank goodness Andre Mariner was the ref as he had yet another horrific game failing to give a stone wall penalty to Fulham despite VAR telling him it was a penalty? .
How do refs like this keep their place on the list?
I guess always favouring the establishment teams helps you a fair bit?



04 Nov 2020 08:16:10
Jota did us proud and was as good for us as we were for him. He has moved on and do have we. The game is constantly evolving.

The defeat to West Brom is in the past. It's history. So is the Europa League campaign of last season, the seventh placed finishes and the promotion season. What the moaners want to know is how are results going to improve and is Nuno the right man to do it. Has he got the stomach for the fight and can he turn it around?

E from Wombourn

1.) 17 Jan 2021 23:09:23
E from Wombourn, why are you asking the question. You've already given your opinion and are clearly of the opinion that Nuno and Wolves are a lost cause. What would you do to fix it bearing in mind the state of the world, transfer market and financial constraints.



17 Jan 2021 12:27:35
I understand that Nuno and some players are not able to go and visit their family and this is affecting them but then knowing the situation why would a manager recall a young lad from his home country just to put him on the bench and give him twelve minutes to dig him out of a hole when we need a goal. He has bought Cutrone back and half the team Cutrone knew has gone and he knows the manager doesn't really want him.

E from Wombourn

1.) 17 Jan 2021 13:03:38
It's affecting all prem league teams not just Wolves.

2.) 17 Jan 2021 14:26:07
C.V. I mean.



16 Jan 2021 21:00:55
Our best starting 11 at the moment;
Hoever, Boly, Saiss, Kilman, RAN
Neves, Moutinho, Neto
Traore, Cutrone.

E from Wombourn

1.) 16 Jan 2021 21:58:01
Mine would be
Semedo. Boly saiss. Nouri

Dendonker Neves
Traore Neto

2.) 16 Jan 2021 23:58:47
Regarding greyleg and wombourn posts above. I agree Hoever deserves to be given a proper chance to show what he can do. Likewise Cutrone. Don't think Kilman is any more than back up standard and would feel safer with marcal over RAN, particularly for the rest of this season. Can't imagine our defence without Coady. Without him we have no leader.
I'm not a big fan of Donk but we're not exactly spoiled for choice in midfield. It's a shame we're not going to see much of vithina so we prob won't take up the option on him.
Silva had his best game for us but considering he's been woeful so far, that's not saying much. It's shocking that he's anywhere near the first team at the moment. Not his fault but the fault of continual poor transfer decisions. Overall we do have quality throughout the squad but we're a bit of a soft touch right now so it's time for the experienced players to start showing their worth.

3.) 17 Jan 2021 11:43:20
We are missing some very experienced players:

Marcal 244 club appearances
Jonny 274
Jimenez 283
Podence 184

We are currently using:

Ait Nouri 41
Hoever 4
Silva 28
Vitinha 31
Cutrone 105
Neto 56

Of course our form is going to suffer in the short term but the positive is that these youngsters will have gained vital experience in the PL and when the injured players return, they will learn off them.



15 Jan 2021 19:41:27
One for the future Pedro Goncalves has scored twelve goals in thirteen games for Sporting Lisbon who are top of the Portuguese League. Wolves let him go because he was not what we were looking for.

Posters saying we are not buying due to ffp regulations but Chelsea spent a shed load in the summer. No one said a word.

E from Wombourn

{Ed001's Note - they sold Hazard for well over £100m plus a load of fringe players.}

1.) 13 Jan 2021 21:27:48
And Everton and Villa and West Ham sold errrm.

2.) 13 Jan 2021 23:13:32
I think Villa may find themselves in hot water tbh, regarding Chelsea they had a 2 or 3 window ban so they would have had 3 transfer windows worth of funds on top of Hazards money too.
Everton have never been short of cash they were just reluctant to spend in the past.

3.) 14 Jan 2021 11:57:50
Wombourn - We examined Chelsea's FFP situ on here last summer and they are well within their limits due to as Ed says huge transfer profits but also the sheer amount of money the club makes from operations ( mainly commercial and sponsorship) .
However as Realist points out Everton are an odd one.
One of the Eds - sorry can't recall which one but not Ed 1 - made it clear that you can only lose £30m over any rolling 3 year period. Everton have now reported their 3rd successive year of losses totalling well over £250m. They are therefore surely in breach now and should have been in breach last year as their 3 year rolling losses then were north of £80m.
Anyone know what is happening here- i. e. with Everton?

{Ed002's Note - So as Ed001 explained Chelsea raised funds through the sale of Hazard (for more than £100M) and Morata and others (totalling close to £100M). They are also, as you say, very profitable. Everton have issues because their wages are too high and their spending has been an issue; Wolves have been accumulating debt. Aston Villa addressed their FFP issue by selling Villa Park. The losses because of the pandemic will be far more significant and will start being detailed soon.}

4.) 14 Jan 2021 12:47:18
Tks Ed 02. So what is happening with Everton? Why were they allowed to make further extensive signings this summer if they were in breach?
If they weren't in breach despite huge rolling losses why weren't they?

{Ed002's Note - Nothing is happening with any of the clubs that have PL and EFL FFP issues at this time - the plan will be to start dealing with the clubs once the pandemic has ceased to be a major issue.}

5.) 14 Jan 2021 15:10:13
Tks. It will be interesting to see what action is taken. V cynical of them though knowing that they were "in-breach", but for the CV amnesty, to make a series of transfers that will almost certainly make matters far worse?
But also whilst I hear you about June 2020 surely they were heavily in breach in June 2019, rolling 3 year losses in excess of £80m, long before C.V. came along? Why weren't they punished then?
To then "deliberately" lose £139m in the year to June 2020 (taking rolling losses to north of £250m), but still splash the cash in August 2020 is outrageous.
Given the draconian punishments Wolves were threatened with for a modest breach which was immediately cured this flagrant and deliberate on going breaching of regulations must surely attract the most serious of punishments - massive fines, removal from European competition, barring from transfer market, heavy point deductions and maybe even relegation?
Makes their "Professional fouling" against Wolves last week quite understandable. Not sure that this is the way a club should be run and one has to hope that the authorities make an example of them to stop others behaving this way?

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure you are entirely understanding the rules. The rules allow for £45M losses per annum so in any three year period the FFP accounts (not the club accounts given to Companies House) can show a total of £105M in losses and for June 2019 Everton were below that (about £95M). The figure for June 2020 will be far higher due to the pandemic and they will need to justify losses against the pandemic - as will all clubs.}

6.) 14 Jan 2021 16:05:46
ok - thanks --- didn't realise that there was a difference between FFP accounts and companies house accounts.
Also didn't realise that it was £45m per annum for 3 years i. e. £105m
Is that new?
I thought, when it was discussed in detail earlier on this season, it was £30m on a 3 year rolling basis - an awfully lot different to £105m
Wolves surely were never anywhere near the £105m 3 year rolling loss figure (indeed it seemed that we were only just above £30m and that was due to the one off big increase in spending in the promotion season. However accept I am looking at companies house accounts not FFP accounts - are they public? ) and yet were punished?

{Ed002's Note - all clubs need to provide a second set of accounts specifically for the purpose of Financial Fair Play. These are based on the ordinary accounts but adapted for the provisions for FFP - so certain things can be deducted as allowable costs (infrastructure charges (doing stuff to the stadium as an example), spending on youth sides, wages of players signed prior to 2010 etc.). They are not publically available.}

Totally agree Stourbridge. Traore and Neto need to play much closer to centre and attack the box instead of playing on their own in no mans land and keep wasting opportunities. Semedo also doesn’t get into the box enough. Hoever did try to do this when he played and looks a good long term prospect and Johnny Otto will when he gets back.

First thoughts are with Raul and get well soon.
Stafford you are bang on. First 80 mins is the reason we support Wolves and was like the Wolves of old. Great stuff and even if it goes against us you can forgive them. When Nuno surrenders the initiative for no reason its a backward step. Thought Fabio Silva was one of the men of the match on basically his debut and am looking forward to seeing more of him. Could have taken the Donk off and left Fabio on. Credit to all the players. Boly still looks shaky and looks better on the left but Kilman is steady as a rock and deserves his place.
