Sports Mole via Tuttosport reporting that Juventus are looking to sign Pedro Neto in either January or next summer. Hope they've got the £100m that he's worth.

May as well start chucking ridiculous price tags on players under contract till 2025.


2.) 16 Nov 2020 14:49:33
I have.


3.) 26 Nov 2020 13:41:57
Coming the other way what about Eriksen - apparently available for £12m?
He could be the attacking goal scoring mid we seemingly need?
Ok wages will be v high at moment, (Allegedly £160k pa), but perhaps if we are merely paying £12m we could structure his remuneration as some sort of "fee" of say £3m a year and wages of £100k a week to put him in line with Moutinho, last years top wage earner, (Jimenez might now earn more? ) .
He is only 28 and was - at Spurs a couple of years ago - sensational. Yes it appears that he is not that player any more but at £12m surely worth a punt that he can be rediscovered as players of that quality aren't normally available to Wolves.
Indeed given the problems he has had over the last 12 months in Milan he might be malleable re wages?
Thoughts?

Anyone else heard the rumour about Wolves changing kit manufacturers from Adidas to Castore.

From what I've read, Adidas deal is worth £3m a season and runs until 2022.

The Castor deal will be worth £1m a season and Wolves are in negotiations to break the deal with Adidas 1 year early.

The report also states that Rangers are getting £5m a year and Newcastle will too if they sign, however this is for all official merchandise whereas our deal is only for the kits and not wider retail items.

Strange that we'd consider a sponsor offering less money.

Can the Eds shed some light on this.

Jas M

{Ed002's Note - I don't know any of the details but if the amount involved is as low as that the club would get a significant profit share on sales and the deal would be simply for teh supply of kit.}


1.) 14 Nov 2020 16:48:06
Cheers Ed. Just done a little more research and it mentions that the club and manufacturers would split the profits. Rangers are tied into the new style contract and have seen a significant rise in income.

{Ed002's Note - That makes sense Jas.}


2.) 14 Nov 2020 20:58:29
I have not a clue on these things but could this just be a reaction to the current situation with our revenue streams? By that I mean the club needs to make more from merchandise (thus wanting a larger share of the profits) to help compensate for the lack of matchday income?

Rumour going around that the Matt Doherty deal to Spurs includes Danny Rose in a swap with Ryan Sessegnon and Juan Foyth on a season long loan. Don't know if there's any truth in this but if it is, what do you think?

Jas M

1.) 28 Aug 2020 19:03:13
I doubt we would get 3 players for 1
That said I would give any of those a chance in our squad.

Juan Foyth I'd have doubts about in general makes a lot of mistakes.

Trying to get blood out a stone getting a decent deal with Tottenham.


2.) 28 Aug 2020 19:10:42
Um. Not massively keen on Rose to be honest mate. Spends more time injured than playing and seems to have a bit of a big man attitude. As for the other two well there loan's, unless there's fees agreed then all we are doing is paying to develop players for another team?! Really don't get the thinking on this one, I'm sure all will become clear 👍.


3.) 28 Aug 2020 19:24:30
15 mill for doc. Done.
Best wishes to him.
Bring on the new signings.


4.) 28 Aug 2020 19:47:19
15 million agreed for doc according to sky.


5.) 28 Aug 2020 20:03:23
15m is a good return on 75,000 - surely there's someone lined up to replace him?
Best of luck Dock, 300 games is a great achievement!


6.) 28 Aug 2020 20:05:00
Maybe felt he'd done all could of done at Wolves. 28
It makes space for someone younger potentially future world beater of the Neves/ Adama standard. we hope

We've done well at flushing them out so far. Needed more than ever now.

Maybe Maitland Niles is the man.


7.) 28 Aug 2020 20:31:13
If doc has his heart on joining spurs it's best he go.
3 players in for 1 out seems good business I don't know nothing about Foyth but sessegnog and Rose I would be happy with.
A 15 million fee I'm also happy with if we get the lad from Arsenal for the same.
I thank doc for his service but I think if we sell him who replaces him will be better.


8.) 28 Aug 2020 21:04:26
Tom- great point on Sanderson mate cause apprently he looks d GOOD for Cardiff! Still need another RB but definitely happy with developing talent, 👍.


9.) 28 Aug 2020 22:22:00
Haha, think I misread 'standards' there but clearly was a Freudian slip cause Sanderson deserves a mention! Looks like a great young talent, who's natural attacking game is more suited to wb than RB back. Over to Nuno to do what he does best! We are all unhappy about Docs but answer me this, how many on here would have predicted he would have gone to Spurs for £15m when Nuno took over?! Yes I think its cheap but the very fact I do surely shows how far Nuno has bought this club and these players on! For all the nonsense on here Nuno signing a contract is all it will take to calm us all down a bit! COYW 👍🐺.


10.) 29 Aug 2020 06:14:30
Yeah Sanderson could turn into a really good player with another decent loan

As for Nuno, I could see him waiting till the end of the window to sign a new deal. He came out and said it, plain he wants players. That translates as, I want the backing with quality signings Fosun or I'm off.

Apart from Podence last window which Nuno said the same, we need players. The board didn't fully deliver, think there's more in Thelwell leaving. I've said before I won't bash Fousun yet, but they really need to deliver in this window. I do think that will boil down to loosening the coffers.


11.) 29 Aug 2020 17:48:08
Jas M
If you are correct and the deal includes the 3 players you mention, although I have seen nothing that says it includes anything other than the v modest cash sum, it still won't be a good deal for Wolves.
We will have a log jam at LB but still no RB.
Even before you count Otto Wolves will have our own young prospect in Vinagre, the 30 year old, (formerly top quality but now in decline and v injury prone - he hasn't played more than half a season in the last 4 years), Rose and an exciting young prospect in Sessegnon (although unless we have a right to buy at an agreed price all we will be doing is developing the player for Spurs to benefit from) .
Also unless Spurs are paying a large part of their wages we will see - even before we are forced to buy a new RB - the wage bill balloon as Rose and Sessegnon are both allegedly on in excess of 60k per weeks and Foyth is on low 20s
With no established RB in place we will also be vulnerable to being seen as a desperate buyer. Look how much Arsenal and, Norwich are asking for the much more modestly talented AMN and Aarons
and Aurier.


12.) 29 Aug 2020 18:11:12
sorry pressed send by mistake
note how Spurs are playing hard ball in their sale of Aurier
sell high buy low - smart!
For us though we
1) will have weakened the first 11 - Vinagre and Doherty > Rose and blank
2) seen the wage bill rise sharply - given FFP not a smart move
3) if we end up paying £20m+ for AMN/ Aarons be out of pocket for the privilege of strengthening Spurs and weakening ourselves.
I understand that if he wants to go it may be hard to keep him - although as someone says above his last comments don't indicate he does want to go - but remember he is under contract. Maybe management could just say no and "manage" him. Find out why he is unhappy and try to solve the problem?
If we finally decide - and maybe we already have - that he has to go that still doesn't explain selling him for what, between half and a third of what he is worth?
Even if we have a great, young and cheap replacement lined up but not publicly announced you should still maximise the sale price of your now surplus assets.
If you are lucky enough to own a house and then inherit a 2nd you shouldn't say to a multi millionaire would you like to buy one of my houses at half price - that is why they are multi millionaire and you aren't!
I hope the club eventually explains what is going on because the transfer with 3 players coming in is a bad deal but for just the measly sums mentioned circa £15m it is a truly awful deal.
It also sets a terrible precedent that we are a club that sells low and buys high - everyone you deal with from now on will start with the expectation that we are a pushover thus making it much much harder to get fair let alone good deals which with FFP dogging us is essential if we are not to regress let alone go forwards
V worrying.

Morgan Gibbs White signing for Swansea on season long loan according to the Telegraph.

Jas M

1.) 23 Aug 2020 17:58:20
Be a good move for him if true a decent team.


2.) 23 Aug 2020 19:23:45
Yeah I think that's just what he needs! Be great if he went there and lit up the league, he's still young and has shown glimpses of genius albeit far too rarely 👍.


3.) 23 Aug 2020 21:36:13
Bye Morgan.


4.) 24 Aug 2020 03:51:13
Exactly what he needs, a full season under his belt. Neill Harris seems to be a good manager, done well with Millwall and Swansea.


5.) 24 Aug 2020 07:51:59
Harris is at Cardiff, not Swansea - Swansea boss was manager of U17 England squad which won WC and had MGW in the team.


6.) 24 Aug 2020 11:00:43
Good move for MGW. Clearly not oven-ready for the PL yet, or even for a place on the bench. This move will define his career once and for all. If he can't make it at Swansea he will sink into mediocrity. Hopefully he will come back to Wolves and live up to his potential.


7.) 24 Aug 2020 12:04:55
My bad mixing up Cardiff with Swansea! Had I of said this in either Cardiff or Swansea it could’ve been a life threatening 😂.

Wolves have been fined 600k for breaching FFP and can only have a 23 man squad for UEFA sanctioned competitions.

Jas M

1.) 07 Aug 2020 18:45:27
Does that mean for say the Europa League they can only have a 23 man squad but for the PL a larger squad? anyhow I think the squad is currently 23?


2.) 07 Aug 2020 19:07:20
It basically means that should we qualify for CL next season, we can only name a 23 man squad. It don't matter anyway as we've only used 21 players across all comps this season.


3.) 07 Aug 2020 19:09:57
Yet the likes of City, Villa get away with it.
The more that happens this season the more convinced I am that the powers that be are doing everything they can to protect their precious top 6.

{Ed001's Note - City have not got away with it, they have had a similar punishment in the past and Villa aren't even in Europe. You are whining about nothing. It is the standard punishment and has been applied to a number of clubs across Europe.}


4.) 07 Aug 2020 19:52:21
Yeah true ED mate I should of read other articles first as Spiers made it look like it was prem league not Uefa, that bloke really needs to proof read lol.
Saw Joe Edwards tweet who makes it much clearer.

{Ed001's Note - and I doubt it will really have any real effect on Wolves as Nuno likes to run a small squad. You are possibly the best placed club in Europe to deal with a reduced squad.}


5.) 07 Aug 2020 21:14:40
I think the fine comes out of prize money anyway (is that correct Ed? ) and as the Ed says with our squad the reduction in registered players is unlikely to have an effect (when you consider players at the club for more than two years and under 21 don't need to be registered anyway:) . What is interesting is that the club has said its been planned for so won't effect transfers. Now that doesn't actually mean a lot cause if you were already planning to have a quiet window then it wouldn't effect it?! I can't help but wonder if Nunos contract is being stalled cause he wants to know if we are going to invest? He does need more players/ quality depth else there's only so much he can do, time till tell. Fosun have earned some trust from us fans so I'm not to worried. COYW 🐺.


6.) 07 Aug 2020 21:38:58
Nuno said a few weeks ago that he was on the verge of signing but wouldn't do it until after the last game of the season.


7.) 08 Aug 2020 11:04:14
Jas - that makes sense. We won't know where we are until the last game of the season. By the same token we will probably not make any major signing until then either. Nuno will sign then but if he was leaving (very unlikely) we would wait to let his replacement get involved in new signings. By the way, the Sevilla coach was Fosun's first choice for the Wolves job originally. We have a lot to win or lose next Tuesday.


8.) 08 Aug 2020 13:34:14
Yes Deep throat. Lopetegui was on his way to Wolves until Spajn national team came calling.

Great news.


 

 

19 Jan 2021 15:56:36
I heard a very informative piece on the radio yesterday regarding Liverpool FC and Wolves and the 2 clubs recent problems. The main focus of the piece was Liverpool and they mentioned that one of the major reasons they have not scored for 3 matches is because, although the front 3 are still the same, the creativity they had last season is not available due to injuries. Last season they had Gini, Hendo and Fabinho in midfield and a back four of TAA, Robertson, Van Dijk and Gomez. It mentioned that Van Dijk is more than just a defender as he is also a very good ball player allowing Gomez to do the dirty work. With the loss of VVD, Liverpool have lost a ball player at the back and no one else in the squad who could do the same as him. They then lost Gomez so now they needed 2 players to cover the CB roles as Matip was also injured. This has forced them to play Henderson and Fabinho at CB thereby losing the midfield spark whilst not quite having the elegance of VVD at the back. This in turn creates an issue in that the natural balance of the team is missing.

The comparison to Wolves was made by stating that Jonny and Jimenez injuries have left us without our top striker and consistent wing back. Yes, we've got Marcal and Ait Nouri but however good they are, they are still not fully intergrated to Nuno's vision due to us having no pre season. Add to this the injuries to Dendoncker, Boly and Podence, it will naturally have an effect on our performances.

Klopp and Nuno knew at the start of the season what their best team was and who they wanted in the squad. The fact of the matter was that neither club could have seen the huge amount of injuries.

Boly and Dendoncker have returned and Podence should be available next week leaving only Jonny and Jimenez as injured. So hopefully our form picks up soon.

Jas I get you as always.


2.) 19 Jan 2021 19:32:35
Great post Jas and provides deeper insight into what could be affecting our current form, which I have every confidence will turn soon.


3.) 19 Jan 2021 20:04:05
Brilliant post.


 

 

16 Jan 2021 20:48:55
I'd like to try and put the current situation into a bit of perspective.

Had our current form been achieved with our strongest possible squad then this would be clearly unacceptable and questions should rightfully be asked of Nuno.

If, as some suggest, we go out and buy 5 new players, what would that do to the youngsters confidence?

The plan was to integrate Silva, Vitinha, Hoever etc slowly but surely ensuring they learnt off the more experienced players.

Circumstances have dictated the need to play the youngsters when they clearly aren't ready but what is the solution? Who else can we play? We can't just chuck money at the problem because let's face it, the players we all want won't be available because they are doing well at their current club. We could bring someone like Diego Costa in but could we really justify the wages on a player who with the greatest of respect, is past his best.

If the youngster didn't play, some would question why and say what was the point of buying them but as they are playing, but not to the level of seasoned professionals, what do you expect from them.

The Chelsea game is a write off as we will still be without Jimenez, Jonny, Podence and Marcal.

Personally, I think if the crowds were in the stadium, the performances wouldn't be as bad as we would be cheering them on. We will stay up. Fosun have stated that targets need to be altered thus season due to the long injury list. There is very little money being generated by the club. These are very unprecedented times the likes of which I doubt we'll ever see again in our lifetime.

The players need our backing now more than ever.

We look at the players as only players and do not see them as being humans with feelings. Most are in a foreign country away from their nearest and dearest. This will have an effect on them. I know it does on me as my mum lives alone, aged 81 and in the last 12 months I've managed to see her once.

Hopefully this C.V. is overcome soon and we can all meet up and discuss our views face to face. Until then let's do what we can to support not just our beloved club but everyone who needs our support.

Good post Jas M,

Good post Jas
Remember though other clubs have very similar problems to deal with in the current situation and most are not looking as forlorn and inept as us.


3.) 16 Jan 2021 21:53:08
Good post Jas . Onwards and upwards.


4.) 16 Jan 2021 22:28:04
Great post Jas M.

I bet every Wolves fan before the 1st lockdown was more worried about the day that Nuno eventually left us than anything else. And hoping that day would be 10 years away.

Now on here and other social media some Wolves followers (I refuse to call them fans or supporters) want him out and criticise Fosun.

Be very careful what you wish for.

It is time to support our club, the owners, Nuno, his staff and all of our players.


5.) 16 Jan 2021 22:46:49
Top post as always Jas and I agree completely with the sentiment. All I would question is with all that you've said in mind WHY oh WHY is Nuno being SO pig has headed with the formation?! It just seems so obvious to everyone that we aren't ready for this change but still he persists, why?! He said previously that all the top four teams dominate possession (59% or above) and that's what we need to get to but let's be honest this is taking running before we can walk to a whole new level! Sadly I think the system actually may have worked with Jota and Jimenez up top (maybe that's the point Nunos trying to make? ) but saying post match that this is the best system availible with this squad is getting to the point of bizarre for me?! I do hope we get to back to how we play, even Hoddle said it our entire system was based on Coadys free role. He has the best long pass stats for any cb in this league and we are playing him in a system where his only option is a five yard pass to the left?! I would even get it if we start with four then go back to five, I honestly believe that if we'd reverted to five at the back in both today's game and the Brighton game at half time we'd have six more points and be as good as safe now! 😕.


6.) 16 Jan 2021 22:53:24
Good post Jasm mate as I posted early i'm concerned about Nuno not his performance his mental health I hope he is ok as he did not look good at all today I thought.


7.) 16 Jan 2021 23:42:03
The only thing I can think of BullysBoy is that during the very small pre season we had, Nuno came out and said he wanted to move away from the 3 centre back formation as for the previous 3 seasons we were used to inviting teams to attack us almost constantly and we were playing counter attacking football. He wanted us to play more expansive football. Maybe the injury to Boly forced his hand initially but these injuries are very quickly derailing our season so maybe going back to what we know is the only solution for now and we can tinker with the formation once some of the injured players are back.


8.) 17 Jan 2021 00:10:47
Sevlow1967.
You're bang on. Nuno and fosun are the best thing for decades. I do feel however, we've lost that pack mentality. Nuno is our pack leader. He just needs to start acting like it again. He looks forlorn at the moment. Too many changes to soon? Nuno not getting the players he wanted? The lack of fans has hurt us more than most. Nuno's mood is filtering down to the team. Our players and manager need to to man up and prepare for the battle ahead.


9.) 17 Jan 2021 00:15:21
Good post Jas and you're right a bit of perspective is required. No it was a poor result to be true but it hurts most for local pride we can get over it. We had what 27 shots that was great but sadly not in the net but at least we created them. A decent striker and we may well have won. Not to be though I always thought this was going to be a tough one to win just because of the ale House football Sam plays to try to bully you out of it.

We're a bit lightweight and let's be honest it the type of team we've struggled with since we came back into the Prem. End of the world course it isn't it's a game of football! We're surrounded by death around the world so no it's not that important. Though I would like a striker that could hit a cows backside with a banjo!


 

 

16 Jan 2021 16:55:07
Right, I watched the game at work and was upset. I calmed down and driven home only to be greeted by my Baggies supporting wife revelling like a pig rolling around in the brown stuff.

13 Jan 2021 13:10:41
Personally, I think the negative posters on here who claim that Nuno has lost the plot and that Fosun are no longer interested, should make direct contact with the club and tell them exactly why they should spend massive amounts of money on players as we are out of form and then what we should do once all the injured players are back and the ones we've recently signed are no longer required. Perhaps they could also explain the benefits of this and the effects on the club finances.

Jas M

1.) 13 Jan 2021 14:23:10
Jas - I suspect that you think I probably fall into that category a bit
But I promise you haven't lost faith in Nuno and don't think Fosun have lost interest. But do think Fosun/ the club have made major mistakes this last 6 months and Nuno - albeit with v little to work with - hasn't been at his sharpest - maybe he is fed up with what he has to work with now.
Re money to be spent on players you don't need to spend lots just wisely, (for example just off the top of my head Coufal, Soucek and Wilson (plus if you like Marcal) were bought just this summer for just over £40m and are all on much lower wages than Silva) . Additionally note We bought Neto and Podence last year (? ) for peanuts compared to the players bought/ options taken out on this year
re squad size and therefore unhappy players when everyone is fit. Even when everyone is fit we don't have too many players we have too few Nuno told us that last year and we reduced the senior squad size over the summer when injuries were taken into account. So adding 3 or 4 more senior pros isn't going to be a problem in fact most no all teams have a squad not an 11 - I strongly suspect that we actually have fewer senior pros than anyone in the league.
Yes some of the kids won't be getting game time as they are now but given their state of readiness is that a bad thing in fact it may help their development and the clubs long term future for them to be given a fair introduction at a level and time they can cope with? Moutinho would also obviously not need to be flogged to death as he is at the moment as well
The benefit to not spending badly plus being successful is obvious.
Spending badly and doing badly - especially if that is in extremis and we get relegated - has a v bad effect on the clubs finances
Hope you don't think I am being flippant as I recognise you are a passionate and rationale poster on here (as many are to be fair) but surely you recognise things are not good and it is only fair to ask/ question/ examine why and who is to blame?
I hope we all want the same thing Wolves to return to the fantastic upward trajectory Nuno had the club on until last summer?


2.) 13 Jan 2021 14:59:40
I to am starting to slip into that category as well gents. The thing is Jas when you add up the injuries what it actually equals is our bench! So essentially what we are seeing is that (as I keep saying) we have GOOD first team but a very AVERAGE squad! Excellent response as ever re:Silva Future btw. And to be honest it's getting to point where I find myself agreeing! Because who on here can honestly say we wouldn't be higher in the league had we signed Soucek and Wilson instead? Of course we may not have got those particular players (in fact I suspect we wouldn't have) because Soucek was settled on loan and Wilson clearly wanted the no. 9 shirt. However that doesn't mean its still not a very valid point cause what those signings show is that for the money we spent (on Silva and the £20m optinal for Vittinha) that's £55m definitely enough to get two players ready to play. I haven't lost faith in Nuno but I do feel a little sorry for him. His interview with Sky about youth was excellent as ever (he's SO good at public speaking) however it also smacked of the years Wenger spent towing the company line at Arsenal. Like Arsene Nuno is the consummate pro so would always follow the company line but seeing him after last night's match I'm growing increasingly concerned that he doesn't actually believe it himself anymore! All that said I do hope the youngsters spank Brom next and prove us all wrong! 👍🐺.


3.) 13 Jan 2021 16:03:22
Wow Bully good post but when sensible and thoughtful posters like yourself ( and a few others on here I would acknowledge) start to send up flares we really should take note.
Your Wenger comparison is v good.
I hope Nuno can pull us through - I think he will! - but he is being made to work hard for his money.
I picked them, Wilson and Soucek at random having seen WHU play Everton last week and both Soucek and Coufal were good and new signings - so checked their fees and have always followed Wilson since we turned him down in favour of Leon Clark!


4.) 13 Jan 2021 16:45:13
Thefutureisoldgold and BullysBoy, I would class neither of you as negative. You are 2 of the very few on here (Phil789 is another) who actually offer level headed opinions. Its the ones who go on about how wrong Nuno has got it that wind me up. They just can't seem to understand what going on in the background.


5.) 13 Jan 2021 17:15:50
Agree with everyone on this thread. I always try to be positive about where we are and accept bumps on the way. This is the first time since Nuno arrived that we've been hammered by injuries to our key players and it's hardly surprising that the wheels have come off a bit. I must admit I would have preferred an established striker to have been signed in the summer but I wonder who would have wanted to come to not play? You cannot foresee an injury like Raul's. Things will improve I'm sure the you players will improve with the experience they're getting, look at Neto! COYW.


6.) 13 Jan 2021 17:45:17
Ken you are correct that was the conundrum they were facing. My sol'n - probably optimistic as he might consider himself above us and his wages would have been high cf Silva although his transfer fee cf Silva probably wouldn't - would have been Giroud. He would have been able to play as part of a (v slow running but brilliant in air and box) 2 up front with Jimenez as well as instead of Jimenez. Agree you would have had to sell it to him and Jimenez. It may also have stunted Podence and Neto's growth as well as we would often only have played one other forward minded player and that would be Traore.
Think of the carnage they would have created though with Traore's crosses and 2 superb target men in the middle.
Put Neto/ Podence on the other side and we would have been massively unbalanced in a 4 2 4 or 3 3 4 but oh my would we have scored some goals and entertained.
Enjoyed day on site if not last night's result
Cheers everyone!

Jas M-as part of the negative poster brigade, or translated more accurately-looking at the bigger picture-what do you expect? . Even when we had all our players fit we were not scoring goals, conceding silly goals and barely winning-now with a weaker team it is worse. I suspect the negative posters of which I include myself amongst, have seen this scenario happen all too often before, and here are the reasons as to why?
1-Bad transfer window. 2-Selling key players 3-Failure to replace adequately key personnel such as Dalrymple and Thelwell 4-Change of tactics and style of play resulting in lack of creativity, lack of goals scored, poor defensive play 5- Build up of injuries to key players. All these traits tend to signify a club in regression and at worst a fight to stay in the Premier league-a distinct reversal of the owners so called ambitions -supposedly Champions league. It's only after all an observation, but unfortunately these observations are becoming cited on a wider scale.

Fair comments guys.
Fosun have now said they won't be spending money on players in Jan.
So I come to the conclusion our object is to stay up. And reinforce for next season.
So let's go all out for a cup run
Agree.?

I have read the posts today and see a lot of worried posters.
I see a lot of good things in our performances with a depleted team.
We lost 1-2 last night not 1-5 or 2-7.
With all the worried concerned posts of MGW silva no good we still gave everton a good game. We are not far off winning games we have lost so that's a good thing.
Jimenez injury has hurt us the most that's not imo fosun or Nunos fault.
Yet we are still holding our own.
I believe everyone at the club is all on the same page who we sign where the project is going etc etc.
I think nuno knows how everything is and is happy with the project.
I've always been happy with where the club is since fosun took over.
I think decisions made by the club are for the best interests in our 10 year fosun plan.
This year since no fans hand on your heart the live football is rubbish viewing, its ok watching our team but when say for example silva shot, that the Everton keeper made a meal of an easy save if the crowd was there in the north bank they would spur the team on.
My brother said to me he had seen last season the mol was voted one of the if not the best intimidating atmosphere for the away team.
I trust and have faith
I always live life with a smile and was thinking about this before last night's game, Sheffield utd to beat Newcastle (they did 1-0) last night and then I know it's a long shot beat Tottenham Saturday we beat the baggies Saturday west brom will be bottom on goal difference.
Ha ha I hope I int got it wrong.

Phil you are a star and a ray of sunshine in the gloom. Plus you really are a true fan and I'm sure we could all learn a lot of life skills about the benefits of positivity from listening to you particularly in these difficult times.
Def one of my fav posters - keep the flag flying eh!

Arh thanks Thefutureisoldgold I have been worried that I come across to happy and daft but hey I know that's me.
My bluenose work colleague is having it bad their 3 festive games zero goals 1 point they out the cup and so he told me Birmingham are in a lot of debt. I darent moan at him about us losing last night.

Lol.

Greylegwolf, last week the same source claimed we were after Costa and Eriksen and this week claim we've got no money to spend. All this goes to prove is that the media are just guessing like the rest of us.


13.) 13 Jan 2021 20:22:16
Thefutureisoldgold,
On tv now Cornwall and devon walks with julua Bradbury.
Last week and tonight its Cornwall walks so next week a good chance devon walks will be showing.
Was thinking of you incase your safari and Dubai holiday with your son doesn't happen. you mentioned you was taking your wife to Devon.
Thought it might may be of interest for you. itv Wednesday's 8.00pm.
I was flicking the channels and remembered seeing in on last week.

Agree with pretty much all of the above gents and have to say that I too genuinely enjoy the constructive (varying) views from the above posters. Jas it's nice to have you back regular fella and yes Future ya right (again:) Phil you are always a breathe of fresh air on here buddy, every site needs a Phil posting, it keeps the spirits up (especially when results are agaisnt us like right now) . And that's all of the above so yes you as well SQ, I've said it before I don't always agree but your always constructive so even if I don't agree you always have a valid point. For example I think your bang on about Dalrymple and Thelwell. Cause no matter how good/ bad they were at their jobs we should be asking why did they leave (for what in both cases was lesser offers)? More to the point who is picking up that work load right now?! Cause someone should be?! COYW 🐺.

Watched "Repair Shop" and now wife is watching "Mrs Brown" - I was expecting an Irish comedy but got Dame J. Dench as Queen Victoria- so missed it.
You know you are getting old when you watch the repair shop, gardening becomes really interesting and Julia Bradbury is your idea of a pin up. Lovely girl and really like her programs so will def check it out next week - tks!
We have had several hols in Cornwall previously and we do really like the SW so will probably do Devon again anyway but it will be interesting to see what the program shows.
I want to do Tintagel next time we go that way which is just over the border into Cornwall anyway
PS Had a sniff at a job this week that should see me ok for hols with my son if as you say CV allows it to go ahead.

I hope it works out for you Thefutureisoldgold.
Bullysboy always enjoy reading your posts as I do the majority on here.
I agree with SQ on that the premier league is results driven.
Me personally I see or I think there's a lot of over thinking on where we are as a club you know what's been discussed a lot the last week or so which is sound and a good read for me.
When we aren't getting results I look and see with our injury crisis nuno doesn't have a lot of options so I look for the next best thing the performance, we haven't been walloped but still it hurts to lose.
Posts I don't understand are the ones like Traore is leaving get the money in yet Traore was sitting in front of Jimenez in the stand.
It takes all. sorts I guess.
Yes always nice to see Jas posting.
Have nice day and up our beloved wolves. 👍.

Thefutureisoldgold. Giroud I wish! Sadly I'm sure he wouldn't ever have considered us frankly! Anywhere in London or back to France I always thought. I don't think Nuno would ever go with two strikers and a good one probably wouldn't want to play second fiddle to Raul. We are not alone in only having one though. The loss of Raul has caused most of our problems sapped confidence. No one seems able to hold the ball except Neto. But he can't do it on his own. Fabio would struggle to trap a bag of wet cement atm.

Yellowstone, you've missed my point. What I said was after Doherty left and Semedo came in, we thought we'd got ourselves an upgrade. Before either had played for their new teams.

Who on here honestly thought that when Doherty left and replaced by Semedo, that we hadn't upgraded?

The Jota transfer I can see issues with but most, including me thought that Podence was an adequate replacement.

If we're just interpreting things any old way, I've just read the article and my takeaway is this:

Agent of Ronaldo, Diego Costa, Rafael Leao, Angel Di Maria and Fabinho has been talking to the hierarchy at Wolves regarding player movement.

Yes, Coventry famously offered bang on £5m for Keane which was rejected. Richards, who was MD at the time said anything over £5m will be accepted so Coventry offered £5m plus 1 pound. He then failed to add a sell on clause.

So yellowstone, you mention how the midfield and how it is the engine room and then the only player you mention we should have signed is Paulinho. Which one? The 32 year old who is 1 year into a 4 year deal at £300k a week or the one from Braga - the striker?

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.

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.

The only thing I can think of BullysBoy is that during the very small pre season we had, Nuno came out and said he wanted to move away from the 3 centre back formation as for the previous 3 seasons we were used to inviting teams to attack us almost constantly and we were playing counter attacking football. He wanted us to play more expansive football. Maybe the injury to Boly forced his hand initially but these injuries are very quickly derailing our season so maybe going back to what we know is the only solution for now and we can tinker with the formation once some of the injured players are back.

Yellowstone, no point naming the players you want rid of but not naming who you want in. You may as well name the players you want in so that Nuno or whoever in charge can get some ideas.

How would you feel if the players you want out do go but the incoming players are all signed from the lower leagues but play in the positions you highlight?
