So with nothing to report due to suspension of the matches, the sports hacks are reporting that Man utd, Arsenal, spurs etc are looking to buy any and all our players, rubbish journalism.

1.) 14 Mar 2020 21:14:34
Jumped up college boys from London and Manchester with no proper journalist skills whatsoever.

2.) 15 Mar 2020 08:58:36
Totally agree. What I find particularly irritating is that these people seem to be living in the past and still think that the so called big 6 clubs can cherry pick the best players from other clubs. The reports are all written along the lines of whether Arsenal or Spurs or Man U decide to take our players - as if it is their choice - with no understanding or recognition of how the football map has changed. Reality is that we are a big club, a very well run club with rich and ambitious owners and a head coach who is fantastic. We have a great group of players who are improving and the club is on the up. The old order is no more.

{Ed001's Note - the reports are written like that because they are aiming for the most clicks, rather than about being true. You get more clicks by linking a player to Liverpool/Man Utd/Arsenal etc than other teams. So people write about them. It is pure clickbait and if people just stopped clicking on them they would go away.}

3.) 15 Mar 2020 13:52:14
Good point Ed.

{Ed001's Note - drives me mad. The likes of NewsNow have 99% of crap in their links but they refuse to do anything about it as they don't give a toss about the people reading. It is all about getting clicks.}

4.) 15 Mar 2020 14:43:06
ED001 and everyone else here - if you want to see clickbait fodder look no further than the Brum Mail. They use the most misleading headlines, mix and match to stories to concoct the fraudulent headline. Another thing that irks me is when the likes of HITC quote other rubbish sites.

As a side note, I remember the BBC once issued statistics about the gossip stories they publish and the paper with the highest accuracy was the Guardian - that accuracy was 15%.

To quote the great Eamon Dunphy "Football is just soap opera for men"

{Ed001's Note - I try and avoid papers like that and I never look at HITC it is pure dross and badly written dross too.}

5.) 15 Mar 2020 18:32:19
Agreed. Most garbage usually comes from Alex Dicken and Birmingham Live. Utter tripe.



03 Feb 2020 14:31:15
Is Thelwell leaving then?

1.) 03 Feb 2020 16:14:08
Of the the MLS, wonder if he was asked to go,?

2.) 03 Feb 2020 16:27:41
He's confirmed it.

3.) 03 Feb 2020 16:47:34
The haters have got what they wanted now.

4.) 03 Feb 2020 17:35:50
If even the bloody-tea lady left people like SQ would seize on it and say Fosun has lost interest!

5.) 03 Feb 2020 18:17:15
Jez Moxey to return!

6.) 03 Feb 2020 18:54:44
Jas, that reminds me. The Fosun-haters (i. e. Baggie fans) go way back to the beginning on this site. When Moxey resigned after the Fosun takeover, some people said he knew the whole thing would go pear-shaped with Fosun, so he got out.

I'm so enjoying the rise of Wolves.

7.) 03 Feb 2020 19:32:25
Deep Throat, agreed. The reason he got out though was that Fosun knew he was limited in his ability. Jeff Shi has taken on the role Thelwell held but surely we must have someone coming in as I'm sure he took on Dalrymple's role too.

8.) 03 Feb 2020 20:51:54
Getting rid of the deadwood.

9.) 03 Feb 2020 22:25:02
Interestingly if you read Nunos interview after Podence was tied up he suggested we could be in for one more. Well that never happened and I can't help but wonder if inability to get a striker overe then line may have been viewed as a lacking on Thelwells part? Either way personally I've never been massively impressed with him so onwards and upwards I say COYW ;)

10.) 04 Feb 2020 00:05:53
Can't understand why some are knocking Thelwell. Look what he's done for the club. Oversaw the Academy, in the process turning them into Catergory A. Oversaw the signings of Patricio, Moutinho, Jimenez, Podence and Traore so all in all not a bad job. Hopefully whoever takes over can take us to the next level.

11.) 04 Feb 2020 09:26:29
It wouldn't of been thelwell why these players came here it would of been Nuno and uncle george.

12.) 04 Feb 2020 09:52:59
Thelwell has played his role well in taking us up to the level where we are now, i. e. knocking on the door to the top six and progressing in Europe. We've come a long, long way from the Morgan-Moxey days. This is probably the best time to be a Wolves fan since the days of Stan Cullis.

With the talent in the U23 side I can foresee greater things from us. It won't be all about big-name big-money signings, we will keep the strategy we have now. Buy shrewdly, buy young, develop from within.

13.) 04 Feb 2020 09:54:36
Really, so why did Patricio, Jimenez etc not join him at Valencia? I accept that Nuno and Mendes play a big part of incoming players but they also have to want to join a club going places. Thanks to Fosuns vision and Thelwells commitment, our ambition was elevated and made more attractive.

14.) 04 Feb 2020 10:56:05
If wolves want to compete in the champions League, we are going to have to do better than buy shrewd and young players, we would not be able to compete, we are are good side, but we have to be a great side, we do need a couple of great great players to finish teams off.

15.) 04 Feb 2020 11:38:41
To the haters Thelwell was responsible for bringing in Coady, Traore and Dendonker, he was also the one who bought in Jackett which kick started our revolution.
Also he was the one responsible for improving the acadamey, so give it a rest yeah.
Wonder who you'll blame now?

16.) 04 Feb 2020 12:54:07
Take your point Tibbsy but all great players were young and promising players once. We will in my opinion, in due course, compete in the CL with the present strategy. We will not go round like headless chickens (Man U comes to mind) spending pots of money on so-called big names like Pogba.

Man U ended up so desperate for a striker last week that they nearly brought Glenn Murray in from Brighton. Call that strategy? Where has all the squad building gone?

The only other team's strategy I admire is Liverpool's. They have sold some very big names to bank profits to get the squad they have now, which includes home grown players. For this reason Liverpool's net spend is a lot lower than you might think.

17.) 04 Feb 2020 13:04:11
Guys we can debate which signings were his and which weren't but in truth none of us will ever know. All I would say is that if he is that good why are we letting him go? And more to the point why has no one else been in for him up until now? Last question but why is it that only LA are in for him who are a team playing at a lower than Championship level?

18.) 04 Feb 2020 13:53:47
12 years with one Organisation is good achievement in this day and age.
Fosun seems to be a caring employer, but equally constantly looking to raise standards in all Departments.
I am delighted that Thelwell has found a new role and I wish him well.
Onwards and upwards. the Pack continues to strengthen.

19.) 04 Feb 2020 15:16:05
In my opinion, Telwell became the new Moxey. Just a pantomime villain.

20.) 04 Feb 2020 17:58:14
Ironically I actually agree Debs, in so much as in terms of abuse there always seems a need for a pantomime villain at most clubs (sadly) . Wonder if Jeff is feeling nervous with that in mind!

21.) 05 Feb 2020 13:25:54
Sad if Thelwell had become a pantomime villain. With everything we have achieved to get where we are today, surely everyone at Wolves is a hero not a villain?

A more likely pantomime villain is Mike Ashley at Newcastle.

22.) 05 Feb 2020 14:34:50
Just the way of the world Deep, there's always a fall guy or a boogy man that fans blame normally when transfers don't come off. United have Woodward, WHU have Sullivan and I'm sure the list goes on! Like Deba said for years it was Moxey, if it went wrong blame Jez! Sad yes but the nature of the business when you are dealing with a mob mentallity, sadly football usually does! 🙄.

23.) 05 Feb 2020 16:47:41
Sorry to see Thelwell go, perhaps an issue over only being permitted to sign Mendes clients.

24.) 05 Feb 2020 19:41:33
Jonny, Jimenez, Traore, Dendonker, Boly, Vinagre, Loiodice, Jordao and Campana. All signed since Fosun took over, none are clients of Gestifute (Jorge Mendes)

25.) 05 Feb 2020 23:05:01
Fair point Jas although the point is still valid, in so much as I wonder how much say he had in ANY of those signings? I'm not saying he didn't (for all I know they could have been his signings) BUT it certainly would make anyone want a new job if they felt their role had become little more than a glorified account organising money rather than sourcing players. If essentially he was given a list by Mendes and told to work from that then I could understand why that would rankle! I'm sure we'll find out in the years to come but the timing of this (after a window) can't be a coincidence! COYW 👍.

26.) 05 Feb 2020 23:53:39
Anyone read the article claiming that Thelwell suggested the signings of Dani Olmo and Hwang Hee-Chan only to be over ruled by Nuno who wanted Campana and Podence?

27.) 06 Feb 2020 11:49:06
Jas, I read that as well. Thelwell was apparently overruled by Nuno. If true, this is how it should be. Nuno is the ultimate expert in footballing matters at Wolves.

28.) 06 Feb 2020 11:51:19
I did not and if honest I always take articles claiming to know inner dealings of any club with a serious pinch of salt (depending on the source;) . It was well documented that we were in for Chan but the move broke down on finance, also we have been tracking Campana since the u20's South American cup. Overruled by Nuno is one thing and frankly would also be the signs of a healthy club (the manager lives and dies on signings so they should have a strong say) . Still it would be an entirely different/ more grating scenario to be overruled by someone that's not even working for the club (cough, Uncle Jorge, cough) ;)



07 Aug 2018 19:54:21
Any one know what the hold up is with Troare being announced.

1.) 07 Aug 2018 20:03:39
I am thinking the same thing. Knowing our luck he has failed the medical.

2.) 07 Aug 2018 20:14:24
He’s been pictured at the Mount hotel in wolves so he’s probably completed the medical and will be announced tomorrow, will follow a big day or two for the club imo, I’m not in the know, but can just see it happening.

3.) 07 Aug 2018 20:11:46
It's a record fee so their obviously waitin to give it the biggest exposure possible, until we break this transfer record again in the next 48 hours 🤞.

4.) 07 Aug 2018 20:27:22
I just think it's a bit strange that it is taking so long.

5.) 07 Aug 2018 20:29:30
He trying decide if spires or Nash get announced that he joined and if wants race a cheetah in his intro video.

6.) 07 Aug 2018 20:41:17
If he failed or it was off we would of known by now the only reasons I can think is either they could announce another signing tomorrow to excite the fans even more or maybe just announce that a player is having a medical alongside the traore signing or we won't be signing anyone else after traore so want to leave it a bit longer.

7.) 07 Aug 2018 21:12:38
Wolves are about to announce an 18million pound signing!
Just let that sink in for a moment! Just hope he improves with us because he needs to!

8.) 07 Aug 2018 21:13:29
Nash tweeted Adams signed.

9.) 07 Aug 2018 21:25:43
Signed 5year contract according to Tim nash.

10.) 07 Aug 2018 21:26:31
Adama Traore. Signed. Sealed. A Wolves player. Tim spiers just.

11.) 07 Aug 2018 21:38:18
Tim Nash saying that traore will be announced tomorrow.

12.) 08 Aug 2018 15:50:30
Is the marquee signing Leon Clarke?

13.) 08 Aug 2018 15:51:24
Danny Batth will stay and fight for place - a bad start would let him in.



30 Jan 2018 22:02:12
Results went our way tonight apart from the Vile but another game nearer the end of season for the chasing pack.

1.) 30 Jan 2018 22:08:09
Most definitely.



01 Jan 2018 12:39:57
Any new faces expected for tomorrow?

1.) 01 Jan 2018 18:24:50
Probably it's going to be a sell out again
Bound to be a fair few first game of season.

After last nights game I think Wu Lui would be a good addition.

1.) 25 Feb 2020 16:57:03
I thought Wu Lui was really excellent, their best player. Apparently we were after him before, but work permit issues intervened. Shows we were after a good player.

Now that he has a work permit within the EU, can we sign him in the summer while we are still in transition from the EU? It's still free movement until 31st December. His Spanish team are likely to be relegated and could sell him then.



10 Nov 2019 17:10:16
Well I have to admit that now Nuno and his coaches have got into Adama Troare's head they are turning him into something special, he now looks a footballer, burnt Vlla off the park.

1.) 10 Nov 2019 17:24:55
And one of the best parts of that, according to Vile fans he was a complete flop there. Waste of a shirt.

Kinda shows what a decent gaffer can see and bring out of a player.

2.) 10 Nov 2019 19:02:17
Yeh'had a Vile fan at work say thanks for the sell on cash for one of our rejects when he came in from Boro, said it was
unbelievable how Vile were still making money off him' wonder how he's feeling now



27 Oct 2019 16:22:35
Why was doherty beng pulled over in the last minute not a penalty.

1.) 27 Oct 2019 16:32:09
Why didn't jota put the ball either side of the keeper when through on goal if we need to rely on penaltys to see us through then were not good enough. need 150m spent otherwise its bottom half.

2.) 27 Oct 2019 16:49:24
Clear penalty. The ref viewed it and did not give it. How hard does a shirt have to be pulled? This offence clearly interfered with Doherty's ability to play the ball. Bad decision.

3.) 27 Oct 2019 16:55:16
Ridicolous. VAR is a joke and everyone knows it. Several wrong decisions this weekend. Scrap it now!

4.) 27 Oct 2019 17:02:50
Because they all think. well it's only Wolves nobody's going to come down on us, so who cares'

5.) 28 Oct 2019 17:11:19
Notice MOTD2 forgot to show the assault on Diogo or the blatant penalty, probably needed the “air time” for the London/ Manchester and one of the Liverpool Clubs.

6.) 29 Oct 2019 06:42:09
Yet another fixture we won last year but didn't this time out!

7.) 29 Oct 2019 17:42:02
Well we lost the man city fixture last year but won it this year so stop being negative.

8.) 29 Oct 2019 19:21:40
And Watford👍.



11 Jun 2019 09:00:12
lots of rumours re Costa, Cav and Troare if we were to keep one who would you choose?

1.) 11 Jun 2019 10:31:11
I'd say cav as he does try.

2.) 11 Jun 2019 15:14:55
People saying Cav hasn’t proven himself in prem that’s total b******s he hasn’t had enough game time to prove or disprove anything and still weighed in with a few goals.
If he will stay we need to keep him but if he wants regular football he will have to move, shame I think he’s a decent player and god forbid we pick up any long term injuries.

3.) 11 Jun 2019 16:27:37
All i'm saying is Cavs first ever touch in premnier league was a goal, let that sink in.

4.) 11 Jun 2019 18:27:40
Cav is class but he hasn't had nearly enough game time in the PL. Costa is also class but he seems to have lost the plot and also his confidence. I'd keep both but if I had to choose, Cav.

5.) 11 Jun 2019 21:01:02
Out the 3 I'd keep Cav, but if Nuno feels it's time to change so be it. If we want to keep improving the quality of the player has to. We can't stand still or we stagnate. If they leave then thanks for your contribution and good luck for the future.

6.) 12 Jun 2019 08:11:13
Troure I'd keep I really do think this will be his year.



07 Mar 2019 13:21:34
I have just read this and cannot agree more, The man is built like a tank but has the pace of a fighter jet - it is such a shame he is not nearly as dangerous as those two machines are when it comes to attacking. He simply lacks the footballing knowledge or awareness to make the difference and too often he ends up wasting the great positions he finds himself in with a poor shot or a wrong pass. If he could iron out those errors then he would be a tremendous talent - but is it a case of it being too late? They say you cannot teach an old dogs new tricks and while Traore is hardly a veteran of the game he does seem to be stuck in his ways, learning little to nothing from the mistakes he has made in the past. Nuno Espirito Santo cannot be happy having such an inconsistent performer out on the pitch and if he is not developing then he is going to waste the athletic talents he does have.

1.) 07 Mar 2019 19:14:45
Sadly I think that's about right, but, I think he terrorises defences when he's used late on and as (I think it was Mel eves) someone said 'his balls are like a garden sprinkler, all over the place, but some will fall in the right place'. He's an expensive weapon non the less and if he wins us free kicks from being brought down? Well look at Bamba after trying to catch him.

2.) 08 Mar 2019 00:01:12
He was the same at Villa - very inconsistent. But for some reason he played really well at Middlesbrough where he was used as an orthodox winger.

3.) 09 Mar 2019 08:34:51
He will come good, it took Doc an age to grow into the player he is now, for me, Tra is getting better game on game.

Traore is not a premier league quality player, all he has is pace and strength he gets into good positions but doesn't then have a final ball or football brain to deliver anything productive, prefer to keep Cav at least he has a goal in him.

I am not convinced by Troare, he isn't a footballer, first touch very poor, gives the ball away too easily in fact for his size and strength he is very poor, got to be third choice behind Costa and Cav who have more football knowledge in their pinkies than Trore has in his head, Speed is not everything his assist record is non existant and he is no sriker.

Shows a lack of ambition, and also a belief in his own ability. Makes me think he sees himself as a big fish in a small pool or a small fish in the premier lake.
