The Nico Gonzalez rumours have resurfaced. Him, Rugui Puig and Oscar Mingueza swap for Neves.

I don't know much about them other than Puig and Mingueza are valued at £7m and £15m and Gonzalez at £30m.

I have read that Barcelona fans really don't want to lose Gonzalez and reckon he is a future superstar.

Personally I think we need to be a little bit careful, it looks like we've tried Hoever as a partial payment in the Jota deal and seem to have considered swapping Traore for Trincao. Not sure any of it has worked out. Bringing 3 players from one club could significantly alter the changing room culture for better or worse.

2.) 27 May 2022 18:31:38
Take all 3 plus £30million for Neves if Neves wants to go to Barcelona which I wouldn't begrudge him if he did, he deserves to be winning trophies

3.) 27 May 2022 19:48:28
When Wolves took Hoever in part exchange for Jota some Liverpool fans were up in arms as they saw him as very much one for the future.
It hasn't really worked out that way for us, so far, with Lage publicly criticising his attitude.

It's probably fair to say the Traore/Trincao swap deal has backfired for both clubs as neither managed to attract a deal.
Like you say Arddunby taking 3 players from one club could prove to be tricky, in more ways than one if they don't deliver.
I think we all know we aren't going to find another Neves.

4.) 28 May 2022 09:28:05
In addition what salaries are these players on as I doubt we are prepared to pay 3 if they are at Trincao's rumoured £135k per week.

5.) 28 May 2022 10:03:41
Puig is on £64k
Mingueza is on £19k
Gonzalez is on £10k

6.) 28 May 2022 13:06:40
Thanks for posting that Jas



05 May 2022 00:06:19
The rumour is that Raul and Jonny had a bust up with Lage in training last week resulting in them being dropped for the game against Brighton.

More likely Jonny was given a rest after playing a few games after a long term injury and Jimenez was left on the bench as his partner was heavily pregnant and could have been required to leave at a moments notice.

I'm sure the truth will come out in the end.

Jas M

1.) 05 May 2022 09:49:26
You're usually the voice of reason Jas. The usual suspects always reappear after bad results, claiming all sorts of intrigue. They go on and on, knowing that a broken watch is right twice a day. Bruno out? One day he will be gone, he won't be in the dug-out when he's ninety.

2.) 05 May 2022 13:26:11
Also Podence is injured but can play through injections but is unwilling.
I total understand where he is coming from he played through injury before and made it a lot worse so he most likely doesn't want to risk that happening again.

3.) 05 May 2022 14:43:57
I used to speak to Jamie O Hara (when he got blamed for everything). He played most of the season we got relegated to League 1 injured but because he was our best player, he was asked to play with oain killing injections because a 75% fit O Hara was better than a 100% David Davis and Tongo Doumbia.

4.) 05 May 2022 23:07:04
Jas M, I always find you the voice of reason and like me you find the negative posters an annoyance. However, in this case unfortunately the rumours are true and I know this for a fact from someone who witnessed it. It was not a major scrap but there was enough of a melee to halt training and for 2 players to be sent back to showers before Bruno and a member of the coaching staff left the pitch.
Sometimes these things can clear the air and the players are rejuvenated but clearly on Saturday this did not happen.
The information I have is that Bruno wants a clear out of some of the established players and feels some of them have become stale and wants fresh blood. This could see Raul, Dendonkar, Coady, Boly, Saiss, Moutinho all leave and Neves sold this summer.
This is not me being negative and I fully support Bruno but I am telling you it did happen. Tim Spiers has tried to address it by limply saying he was there a few weeks ago and they are a tight bunch. He’s right which is why lots of them were not happy about it!
Either way, it is something that happens regularly at clubs and teams either come out stronger or the manager loses the dressing room. Let’s hope it’s the latter. I believe in Fosun and I believe in Bruno but maybe it’s time for a shake up if we want to push on.

5.) 06 May 2022 07:24:44
It happens at most clubs. If it has then so be it. I'll support the club no matter what.

6.) 06 May 2022 12:55:43
Me too Jas!
Tbh honest I think Bruno needs the opportunity to do things his way and he will need to owners to back him. I will be right behind the team whoever is on the pitch but I have to say I’m quite excited by the thought of a change of system, style and personnel.
Of course it could all go wrong but we have to shake things up slightly if we are to challenge the big boys.
I love Neves but has he gone as far as he can with Wolves?
I just hope we can end the season positively and go into the summer with optimism. A win against Chelsea and Man City would certainly do that!

7.) 06 May 2022 12:55:44
Just a shame it happened when it did. Very difficult to never argue with people you spend so much time with though. I think Coady's body language against Brighton was the indicator for me that something had happened. Sad, but also exciting to see who we get in the summer.

8.) 06 May 2022 14:08:53
Sad to say I think Coady may have realised his place is in danger if we play a back four and I can see him being at Newcastle next season. Shame as him and Neves are up there as my favourite Wolves players ever.
Still, onwards and hopefully upwards.

9.) 06 May 2022 15:52:41
Dust up or no dust up, although it looks like there was one, but so what? Man United have practically been having them during matches! Fernandes and Ronaldo can really throw their toys out of the pram in full view of a packed stadium and millions watching around the world.
It will all be forgotten at Wolves for now if we put in a decent performance against Chelski. But, not quite forgotten. There is a time and place. If Bruno wants to make changes, I for one would love to hear them. He must have his reasons.

10.) 08 May 2022 03:19:20
I actually think that with Coady it's just about adjustment. Is there any reason why that with a bit of practice he couldn't be the answer to replacing Moutinho?! Don't get me wrong he won't ever be at Moutinhos standard (the only genuinly world class player I've seen on his day in the old gold), but I can't see why Connor couldn't play CM in an 4-4-2, he has the range and the vision. Not saying it would definitely work but with what he brings to the dressing room I'd always give it a try before looking to sell! The guy is a born winner and SO good for the dressing room and players like that ain't always easy to find! COYW ?

11.) 08 May 2022 09:36:53
I agree BB it also gives the option of dropping back to a sweeper in a back 3 if we need to change shape.

12.) 09 May 2022 11:32:42
Good shout on cm for Coady BB mate, when we signed him he was originally a CDM so he knows the cm role well.



24 Feb 2022 15:38:27
I read the other day that Lage decided that Adama could leave because he was reluctant to sign a new contract and because we have more than adequate cover in Podence, Hwang, Chinqinho, Trincao and Neto.

Jas M

1.) 24 Feb 2022 18:49:48
It's hard to disagree Jas, given that Chinqinho, Hwang and Trincao are all bedding in to varying degrees. With Neto now back and Podence showing his abilty I'd say the most Traore had to look forward to was as an impact sub, off the bench.

2.) 28 Feb 2022 13:33:43
Trincao adequate. I think not.

3.) 02 Mar 2022 19:00:12
I cannot see Trincao being signed on a permanent contract.

4.) 03 Mar 2022 07:46:52
One of the usual sites now saying Trincao will go back to Barcelona and we're after Rafa Silva from Benfica who want £50m.



02 Jan 2022 23:39:19
Dion Sanderson recalled by Wolves.

Jas M

1.) 03 Jan 2022 06:41:02
Interesting Jas, (thinking aloud) does this mean Wolves won’t be dipping into the transfer market for a defender, makes sense given Yerson Mosquera is due to return to training next month?

If this is the case I hope Sanderson takes his chance, he seemed adept in League One and The Championship. Bowyer and Clarke had a lot of good comments about DS.

2.) 03 Jan 2022 14:14:28
I'm looking forward to seeing him play for us thinking a good chance we will see Dion in the fa Cup agaisnt Sheffield United.
Made me happy reading this nice 1 guys.

3.) 03 Jan 2022 14:17:29
I just saw Ryan Giles recalled too.
Another I'm looking forward to seeing play gor us.
Feeling happier in than was a minute or 2 ago.
3 points today oh YEAH COYW

4.) 03 Jan 2022 14:39:03
I think you're probably correct Phil these guys are championship regulars at the moment so Sheff Utd would be an ideal chance for them I would think.

5.) 03 Jan 2022 22:45:22
No sign of MGW returning - could it mean another attacking midfielder is coming in?

6.) 04 Jan 2022 09:41:13
North I doubt MGW would be recalled for a cup tie against his loan club.

7.) 05 Jan 2022 10:02:47
I think MGW is injured and doing rehab at Compton



13 Jul 2021 21:15:29
Patricio gone. Thanks for the memories and good luck at Roma.

Jas M

1.) 13 Jul 2021 21:54:04
Agree Jas M, oddly enough Roma are the team I choose to attend games at over here so may see him in action again soon.
Served us well and actually improved as time went on too, most noticeably his kicking.

2.) 13 Jul 2021 22:00:44
surprised Sa hasn't been announced yet. Agree though Jas thanks Rui and good luck.

3.) 13 Jul 2021 22:07:31
Sa is being announced in the next 48 hours.

4.) 14 Jul 2021 04:34:10
TY Rui! been an amazing three seasons.

5.) 14 Jul 2021 06:08:06
All the best in Rome Rui Patricio and thankyou for all yoy done for us.

6.) 14 Jul 2021 07:12:46
Very lucky to of had him at wolves, new manager comes in though doesn’t offer new contract, decent money for a 33 year old, we move on.

7.) 14 Jul 2021 09:21:45
Tibbsy - if we got just over £10m it is v decent money and will represent quite a large, over £5m, profit on his ammortised value - great for FFP!
Also if Sa is as good as we are told £6.8m looks a v good deal and if he is also offered a 4 year deal with only cost us £1.7m a year cf Rui's £4.5m.
Dont know what salary they are offering Sa but remember Rui was on just over £5m pa.
It is highly likely we are making a big saving there as well - again a plus for FFP.
All in all pretty good work - although only of course if he is as good as we are told and at least as good as last year's Rui (which will probably be better than this years to be honest due to father time! ) .
Odd deal by Mourinho but he made a mess of Doherty's deal as well buying him cheap but then playing him out of position and finding out he can only play one way - and not the way he, Mourinho wanted!

8.) 14 Jul 2021 09:27:01
Moved from Wolves to Wolves.

9.) 14 Jul 2021 15:49:15
Good deal all around I thought!

05 Jun 2022 16:26:24
Over the last few years, Wolves have been linked to a number of players who have ultimately ended up at Villa which at the time Villa take great pride in gloating about. The latest one is that they have offered £25m for Palhinha.

In the last few years they have beaten us to Konsa, Coutinho, Ings, Watkins, Sanson, Buendia and Watkins.

I think this is a master stroke by Wolves because Villa have finished below us for 2 of the 3 years that they've 'pinched' the players from under our noses so it seems we are leaking our 2nd choice targets so that Villa swoop in and leave us free to buy the players we actually want.

Jas M

1.) 06 Jun 2022 11:17:27
That's a nice thought Jas, but whatever they spend they don't seem to get any further up the table. At the start of last season they were being tipped for a European spot.
They have tried to bolster their defence recently so we'll have to see how that works out.
Some were moaning that Villa had bought players already and Wolves haven't, but does that imply that the players they've bought were readily available, if so why?
Wolves may well be boxing clever, as you suggest, but I think they are trying to prise valued players away from clubs that they want to improve the squad, not just hoovering up whoever's available.

2.) 06 Jun 2022 13:30:35
And let's not forget that the club cross the ts and dot the is before revealing who they have signed. Did anyone see Mosquera or Chicquino coming, or Ait Nouri etc etc. We just have to wait until they are unveiled and I'm sure there will be some surprises. Almost feels like Christmas.

3.) 06 Jun 2022 15:16:53
Winton, I think that's the wisest approach. For every 'report' you read on a player we're about to sign you read one saying why it won't happen.
As you say let's just wait and see as no one really knows.

4.) 06 Jun 2022 17:03:47
Watkins so good you named him twice.

5.) 07 Jun 2022 09:37:49
See post on rumours Matt wild saying g the club won't break wage structure.
Are we being pipped to these players because we don't offer enough wages?

Uncertain and clouded my mind it has if being honest.



20 May 2022 17:23:57
I see Leeds are doing their Annual complaint about a team near them. This year their target is Everton and how they've breached FFP. We were their target the season we went up as we're Fulham when they went up last time. I really hope it is them who are relegated.

Jas M

1.) 20 May 2022 18:15:43
Being honest Jas I'm more inclined to prefer Leeds to go down.
Imo they attempted to copy our model but have nearly failed and as you say trying it on again putting complaint in about Everton this time.

Asking you Jas are you working at Alexandra stadium for the commonwealth games this summer?
It's brilliant and a coop that in the queen's platinum year we have the commonwealth games held in Birmingham backcountry surrounding areas.

2.) 20 May 2022 18:16:52
I hope Leeds do go down because their fans are vile.

3.) 20 May 2022 19:14:06
Agreed Rated. Horrible horrible fans.

4.) 20 May 2022 20:03:59
Agree the Leeds fans are horrible.

Just found out the cycling trials in the commonwealth games to be held at West Park putting wolvo on the map.
My brother has group walking and cycling around West Park with the West Park rehab hospital.

5.) 20 May 2022 20:07:51
Hang on chaps Leeds can't be relegated because according to their fans the Premier League needs Leeds.
Personally, I can't see them being missed, can't stand the club myself.

6.) 20 May 2022 21:05:57
To be fair,Jas, I think that there may be some validity to the claim this time round because it seems that Everton are trying to claim ridiculous losses due to Covid as a means of offsetting their flagrant abuse of the FFP rules.Throw the book at them I'd say, but the brown paper bags under the table will ensure that it won't happen.

7.) 20 May 2022 22:41:37
Phil789. I am working The Commonwealth Games but no at a particular place. I'm basically going to be working wherever they need me to go or cover for anyone who is unable to work.

8.) 21 May 2022 12:47:27
I hope it's Leeds but Everton need to be looked at under ffp. Something not right there!

9.) 22 May 2022 13:28:20
Ken68 ; Most Clubs are breaking FFP rules some are better at it than others and some hide behind the rules as and when it suits.



17 May 2022 09:28:42
Just heard an interesting piece regarding clubs looking to break into the top 6.

In a nutshell, it said Wolves have got the model right as if you look to invest too much money into the playing side too quickly, you risk dividing the dressing room as new players will be on astronomical wages compared to others which will cause issues. Also, if the outlay if the club goes up, the only people going to suffer is the fans. The example they gave was Newcastle. The average wage of the 1st team squad is approx £50k per player per week. If they invest in new players as the fans want, that wage goes up to £150k per week which will mean the club fall foul of FFP. Solution increase ticket prices and merchandise prices.

Jas M

1.) 17 May 2022 09:47:48
It's very true Jas. You also see it where clubs described as "family friendly" start getting accused of losing their soul for becoming more corporate to increase commercial revenues.

Remember under Martin O'Neil when Villa tried to break the top 6 and ultimately failed. The cost cutting afterwards when the money ran out cost them their Premier League status eventually.

2.) 17 May 2022 11:14:45
Alex Leeds as well under O Leary can't remember the season about 20 years ago, but the finance seemed to be based on making the Champions league, its taken them 20 years to get back from that. Without wishing to use foul language look at the Prem seasons WBA clocked up during that time, just taking the money and if they had to go back down then they came straight back.

3.) 17 May 2022 12:56:19
@Arddunby as I recall the whole Leeds situation was based on them winning the CL Final, they made it to the CL Semi-Final (knocked out by Valencia).

"Doing a Leeds" is a phrase that is synonymous with the potentially dire consequences for domestic clubs in financial mismanagement. Investing heavily to win the CL. However, in the process, the club built up large debts and suffered a financial meltdown after failing to continue to qualify for the competition.

4.) 17 May 2022 13:15:43
Other clubs have been stung too - Portsmouth not so long ago, you could even make a case for Derby in just trying to reach the PL.

5.) 17 May 2022 13:39:02
I think that's why Fosun from the 'get go' talked about a 10 year project. First priority is to get the club into the Prem, second, keep it there and third, push for Europe.
I think players will be more relaxed about joining the club now they'll feel we are an established Premier League with a business model that is secure going forward and an ambition for European competition.
I know Fosun starting talking more lately about a 20 year plan but that was due in part to Covid and probably the time it will take to fully redevelop the Mol.

6.) 17 May 2022 14:13:56
Debbie, 'Arry Redknapp coined the phrase 'Doing a Wolves' to describe a double dip. Mind you, he was famous for keeping the dressing 'fresh', meaning lots of fat brown envelopes. He was tried for fraud, due to a Swiss bank account in the name of his dog. I always wondered what his cat was worth!

7.) 17 May 2022 15:01:25
Debbbie I recall that now thanks.



16 May 2022 14:14:02
So according to reports, Boly, Saiss and Dendonker are all definitely moving on.
Jimenez, Coady, Neves and Semedo will go if suitable offers are received.
Neves does want to stay but realises that his sale will allow us to buy. Moutinho will only move to Porto but wants to stay for 1 more season.

Jas M

1.) 16 May 2022 14:30:38
As we've seen previously with Fosun Jas it will all happen quietly and we'll find out eventually. Marcal, Saiss are a given, Boly, Donk more than likely. Others depend on price MGW to return I should think. No doubt some stuff will be organized already or should be I hope. Clubs have to some idea of what they are doing. Bruno apparently gave them a list and options some time ago. We will see in due course. No doubt there will be loads of guessing which is fun until it gets a bit heated and over the top. Hang on for the ride I just hope it works out positive for us!

2.) 16 May 2022 14:37:16
In terms of Neves, Dendonker, and Moutinho that is the entire midfield wiped out.

3.) 16 May 2022 14:51:25
Worryingly or not as the case may be we aren't being linked with anyone.
If a rebuild is going to go ahead it would seem reasonable for feelers to go out and some of them to get leaked. Additionally if clubs know we need to buy but can't until we sell surely the price will drop. Yes Fosun have cash we know that but they don't want to spend it and other clubs will know that. As Ken said hang on for the ride!

4.) 16 May 2022 15:51:27
We've been linked with Nico Gonzalez - 20 year old central midfielder from Barca. Rumour I heard was they wanted Neves as a swap and they give us £25m on top.

Also been linked to Puig from Barcelona and Paulinha.

5.) 16 May 2022 17:26:29
Fair point Jas I'ld forgotten those, the point I was trying to make was other clubs like Newcastle who know they need to rebuild seem to get limked with everyones dog.



15 May 2022 19:57:07
Let's get this season over and done with. Let Lage mould the team into what he wants next season and let's cheer the boys on to bigger and better things next season COYW

Jas M

1.) 15 May 2022 22:36:50
That may result in more changes than some would wish to contemplate Jas. Potentially, we could be losing at least 6 of the current team, with some of the changes being unpopular, to say the least.
What's not clear is whether Fosun/Wolves will look to bring in more experienced established players to take the club to the next level and abandon the 'ones for the future' policy, which has arguably held us back a bit.
I think, Ruddy, Boly, Neves, Saiss and possibly Jimenez will go along with Marcal who is a done deal. Outside bets on Dendoncker who has attracted interest from abroad and as for Traore, who knows?

2.) 15 May 2022 22:42:15
Jas quite agree with you. Its been a hard season with quite thin squad and I think the last few weeks have been a step too far. let's hope for a good summer in the transfer market and Bruno can shape the squad foe his style of play.

3.) 16 May 2022 06:51:24
@Longmyndwolf I hope the same (Wolves changing their “one for the future” policy, Lage said post match in the E&S “Wolves need ready-made first team signings this summer”

Like most I expect wholesale changes.

4.) 16 May 2022 07:56:05
I hope that's the case Debbie. I know we've had some decent performances/results earlier on but having to manage without key players for extended periods has taken its toll on a thread-bear (experience wise) squad.
Personally, I've lacked the confidence I've had in previous years under Fosun as an unpredictability in our performances has crept in. Inevitably that becomes poor performances, all hallmarks of too many younger players imo.
To bring a couple of youngsters off the bench to liven things up is one thing but to have to rely on them as starters for a whole season is too risky.
Does Large have the clout within Wolves to change that? we'll see.

He also told be that apart from Man Utd, no club in England can afford to buy a player for big money outright. All the transfer fees are completed via a loan type deal. The best example of this is the Nicolas Pepe deal to Arsenal which was £72m repaid at £12m per year over 6 years.

Tommo, I've been asking his dad since 2015 to get them both to sign for Wolves. To be fair, Wolves offered them both a place in the Academy as did Man Utd, Liverpool, Man City, Spurs, Arsenal, Villa, Baggies and Chelsea. They chose Blues because of the coaches.

Tommo1970, I'm with you 100%. I know the agent/dad of a current England International who I tried to convince to join us last season. The agent said he held talks with our club a few years ago when his son was a youth and has spoken to the club recently regarding his other son. Fosun are still committed and are determined to take us to the top.

To be fair, I'm like Tommo1970. Yes I'm frustrated that no new players have been signed but I'm sure that some will. I think the issue is that some fans seem to think that signing players is as easy as going to the supermarket, picking what you want off the shelves then paying for it. If all the rumours are true (which I doubt), then the teams who are playing in Europe and offer more money to the selling club and wages to players are more likely to get the better players.

Maybe the players have been identified, negotiations completed but the only thing missing is a signature as the player is on holiday and the transfer will be revealed when the player is available to begin a career with the club.

The January window was poor as we only bought in Chiquinho. Hwang suffered a few niggles and looked a poor signing compared to the player who hit the ground running when he first turned up. Neto, Jonny and Jimenez were not at their best after long injuries so hopefully this will change. As Daz Hale wrote earlier today, we are looking to sign 3 players for the spine of the team do I'll wait and see. I won't change, I'll support us through thick and thin and put my 3-1 bet on every week regardless.

E, my thoughts are that we should wait and see who comes into our club. Most players are still on holiday or have returned to training this week. The transfer window opens officially in a few days time so from then on is when the transfer merry go round really hots up. If we get to the end of the transfer window and we haven't signed anyone, then I'll happily put my hands up admit I'm wrong.
