Had some tight matches with Newcastle over past two seasons all of which we impacted on the result in the final minutes. Would accept the same this time around but would prefer a more convincing performance and result on Sunday.
I know we do a brilliant job of holding on to what we have but it doesn't make for the most comfortable watch, live or on tv.
The somewhat frustrating aspect of our performances is that When we decide to be more offensive, we look the business, dominate possession and create chances. Usually results in us taking the lead but then we sit back. No disrespect to Newcastle but they are similarly not overly offensive. Game will be very dull unless one team decides to go for it.

Sitting on 1-0 leads is what cost us our Euro place, Nuno knows it (which I suspect is the reason for the change in system) . But we are still too early on in this season with too many new players to be hopeful of anything more than a win, anything more would be a nice Sunday bonus 👍.


2.) 23 Oct 2020 20:53:07
VAR cost us a Europa League place! Trust in Nuno COYW.


3.) 23 Oct 2020 21:39:07
VAR technically and MR Dean cost us a top 4 finish.


4.) 23 Oct 2020 22:26:16
Nope, cause with another goal none of it would have mattered! Shocking decision yes and VAR did us no favours last season but bad decisions are part of the game. We still should have finished in Europe (fairly comfortably to be honest)! How many points were we in front of Spurs when we restarted?! With the form we had before lockdown some were tipping us as an unlikely 4th! We just didn't see enough games safe, I do trust in Nuno which is why I think he's learnt from it is all. This squad shake up has happened for a reason 👍.


5.) 24 Oct 2020 13:08:57
Burnley was the only game we dropped points in after leading, after lockdown! Caused by a 96th minute hopeful punt and scandalous officiating. Cheated out of Europe by VAR, at least 5 shocking decisions, not to mention the City penalty farce. COYW.


6.) 24 Oct 2020 15:25:22
An important factor in missing out on Europe was the small size of our squad, which Nuno was on record of preferring. It wasn't just VAR and dropping points at the death. It was only after the Sevilla game when Wolves management sat down and changed course dramatically for this season. That small squad cost us big time. But we've turned over a new leaf this season and we've had our best PL start in I don't know long.

Given the relatively short gap between this window closing and next one opening in January, it isn't the end of the world if we didn't get all our work done. However the extended domestic window does provide an option and there are good players out there. What do people think? Who, if anyone would folks target from EFL?
Watford's Ismail Sarr would be my pick. Second fastest player behind Traore and able to play on both flanks and down the middle. He showed he was capable of dealing with the rough and tumble of our game and turned in some 5 star Individual performances in a struggling team.

Josh King - pretty solid player with lots of experience - short term cover for Jimenez if Silva isn't ready/ up to it?
or
More of a gamble partic the young English one - the 2 creative mids at Norwich - Buendia (sp) or Cantwell and the chap at Bees Benrahma (sp)?
Don't think we will buy any one though - at least not "names" perhaps another youngster like the chap from Rochdale - for the future!


2.) 06 Oct 2020 21:40:25
I would try cantwell and benrahma,
Build the squad up a bit.


3.) 07 Oct 2020 09:02:47
Brooks of Bournmouth a maybe🤔.


4.) 07 Oct 2020 09:48:05
Suspect both would be expensive. Also hard to tell if either can step up as even Cantwell only has modest premier experience. But both do look exciting and we are short of bodies in midfield particularly young forward focussed players.


5.) 07 Oct 2020 17:53:07
Why not try Matheson. Rochdale lad?


6.) 07 Oct 2020 18:56:35
He played in the under 23’s the other night. He looks pretty good to be fair.

Need eight homegrown players in our 25 man squad. My observation is that a number who were listed last year have moved on and not sure they have been replaced: Gibbs- White, Doherty, Norris Graham.
Talk of Bennett leaving and loans for Sanderson, Kilman, Buur (who might be classed as homegrown) . Where are the eight required going to come from?

{Ed001's Note - there is no requirement, you can just have spaces in your squad.}


1.) 02 Oct 2020 12:10:49
Ed001. I believe age comes into it as well. Over 21? I think.

{Ed001's Note - yes, under-21s do not need to be registered.}

AMN in Arsenal starting lineup tonight. Looks like that is dead in the water. Shame really, as I would really have liked to see him at Wolves. Think he is a player who is going to go from strength to strength over next few years and would have been a massive attribute with his capacity to fill various roles.
I suppose there is still a remote possibility, as he is not in their Premier League starting eleven. Will get pushed further down pecking order for his preferred midfield role if they get their targets over the line before 6th.

Totally with you on this one Ecosse. I'd spend the 30m Costa (if true) money on AMN though he could be the one who got away. He would be perfect, a driving forward midfielder which is the missing part of the puzzle for me!


2.) 23 Sep 2020 19:44:23
AMN was targeted as RWB I beleive. We got Semedo instead. AMN not going anywhere.


3.) 23 Sep 2020 20:28:57
Sharesum. I'm not sure about RWB I'd be surprised if we had got him to play there. It's midfield he wants to play in, that was his problem with Arteta. As you say it may be academic! I see Costa doesn't seem keen, suits me I don't think we need him. Not that my opinion matters!


4.) 24 Sep 2020 08:06:10
Ken68.
Have to disagree with you there mate. Yea AMN wants to play in midfield and yes he's versatile which would attract Nuno but at the time he was seen as a direct replacement for Doherty and they must have been fairly confident of getting him to let Doc go when they did. Obviously the situation changed with the player for whatever reason and we moved on. Put it this way, I don't think we'd have Semedo now if we'd signed AMN back then.
Anyway, all academic now. The squad is shaping up very nicely. Feeling confident now about Sunday.


5.) 24 Sep 2020 12:30:40
Apparently we are now in talks with thomas Lemar.


6.) 24 Sep 2020 19:45:41
Ken, I think you're wrong about Costa not fancying us I reckon it's the other way around. We no longer do big fees for older players with no sell on value.


 

 

04 Sep 2020 22:05:35
Ceballos back at Arsenal. Midfield places being filled so AMN more likely to be deployed as a defender. Played as a central midfielder up until recently and is his preferred position. If we want him as a midfielder then I think we could persuade him to leave Arsenal.
Great engine, aggressive and fast. The latter is something we lack in central midfield. Should imagine we will have one more attempt to sign him.

Missed out on alleged target Oussama Idrissi, who has been confirmed as Sevilla signing. Shame as he looked the business. May well have a back up plan, as we had apparently put in a €16 million bid.
Can’t believe we’re not on lookout for a midfield enforcer, preferably a mobile one. ANM is the one I would like to see BUT maybe need to let that one go.

Need to think about looking at players in Championship. Watkins and Bowen are good examples of what can be unearthed. Teams who just miss out on promotion have players who very nearly were in the Premier League. Brentford are prime example and Benrahma.

Heard rumour Rayan Ait Nouri had opted for Valencia. If true then Vinagre will not be moved on. Not a reliable source but he had both clubs chasing him and Mendez works closely with both.

No Palhina in Sporting Lisbon squad for tonight’s Europa Cup match.
Everton signed Godfrey from Norwich, opens up opportunity for Bennett to get his preferred move back to Norfolk.

Must go in for James Tarkowski. Solid, strong, good in air and on the ground and knows this League.

Agree with point made by Norfolk. My frustration with Traore is the fact that he nearly always receives the ball when he is standing still. Marking someone who is static is relatively easy. More problematic is the fact that him being static and therefore marked, reduces our options moving forward. His lack of movement also limits the space for overlapping wing back to find space. This in turn means Coady is less effective, with his diagonals to the wing back as they can't find space.
Option would be to play him as a second striker, creating more space on the wings. Biggest problem is that he is potentially a match winner an d our best option for creating chances. A dilemma for Nuno but one he is going to have to sort quickly as our stats for shots and shots on target are poor this season. Fulham appear to have problems at centre of their defence, in order to exploit that we are going to have to improve our offense and find some options to our Traore-centric play.

Danger of being a mutual appreciation society here BUT I agree Ken. Why pay that sort of money for a player who didn’t see much action last year. At 30, he should be playing week in week out and he isn’t. Need some experience but would much rather it was a younger player with a fair few games under his belt. A player we looked when Nuno first arrived might be worth looking at again is Scott McTominay. Any new arrivals and he gets pushed further down their pecking order. If they did let him go you would have a motivated player with a point to prove.

I thought Bennett was certainty to go back to Norwich and hopefully will still happen. I suppose it all depends on Ben Godfrey interest from Premier League and abroad being firmed up before deadline day. Apparently Prem teams can buy from EFL beyond 6th October and presumably vice versa. Ryan Bennett has always wanted to return to Norwich, so I hope it works out for him, he deserves it. Was a really good ‘buy’ for us.

Back at Huesca, whom he helped get promoted to Spanish top tier last year. I think it was a loan deal until end of 2020/ 21 season. If he kicks on in early part of season, clubs may come back for him in January.

Much, much better in the second half. More clinical finishing and we would have got something out of the game. Moved the ball quicker and forwards ran at their defence and caused problems. unlucky to let in late, late goal as I don’t think the final score fairly reflected how close we came to a comeback in the second half.
Loss of Marcal early doors was a blow. RWB coming in will let Traore push forward as he is not a defender.
