R. I. P Fred Davies.
Goalkeeper when I first started supporting Wolves. Respect and condolences to his friends and family.

Ken68

{Ed002's Note - Fred Davies was one of teh Wolves players that played for Los Angeles Wolves in the United Soccer Association. When I was a lot younger I did go and see my local side (Golden Gate Gales who were in reality Den Haag) play - this would be 1967.}

Interesting Ed. That sounds like the tournament Wolves went on to win under the moniker Los Angeles Wolves beating Aberdeen 6 -5 in the final.


2.) 03 Sep 2020 16:42:38
Ed002 yep, one of the many attempts to get soccerball! going in the states.


3.) 03 Sep 2020 17:49:49
If my memory serves me, a young Frank Munro was playing for Aberdeen in that 1967 final - playing midfield / inside forward at that point.


4.) 03 Sep 2020 19:31:56
I think you're correct on that one. What a fine player Frank Munro was! You wouldn't want to argue with him back then. Passed away about 10 years ago I think.

Just read an article from Hammers News about our match with them. Moyes obviously will be at home. They suggest that he has opted to play with his recently successful formation of 5-3-2-1. I trust that the referee will be able to count and that Moyes who's C.V. C.V. has maybe caused more of a problem than he realised!

Lol Ken, moyes must of drank the same water as me. A few months back I posted something similar 12 players on the pitch in my formation.


2.) 25 Sep 2020 20:10:10
They may need to field a flat back 9, to cope with the pace we have in our squad now.


3.) 26 Sep 2020 09:01:20
Maybe the 1 is the referee.


 

 

23 Sep 2020 19:00:30
Having not a lot else to do but read I honestly think Costa unless it's a loan paying only part of his wages could be a very expensive mistake. He didn't play much last season and he's on 190k a week and very unpredictable in his quality of performance. Very up and down, maybe we should spend the money somewhere else! Only my opinion obviously!

Ken68

1.) 23 Sep 2020 20:33:21
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.


2.) 23 Sep 2020 22:43:11
Ecosse, good one, he definitely could do what we want. Someone to drive forward for position for the skill guys. Would Manutd let him go though.


 

 

23 Sep 2020 15:46:14
Does anyone know what the situation is with Rafa Mir out of interest. A read a few weeks ago that a number of teams in La Liga were interested. I see he's still listed on the Huesca squad have they bought him or is he still on loan? Plus what's happened or going to happen to Ryan Bennett?

Ken68

1.) 23 Sep 2020 16:26:58
Ken68
I was thinking that myself. Hopefully we can get in the region of 10 mil for them combined.


2.) 23 Sep 2020 17:23:48
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.


3.) 23 Sep 2020 17:46:43
Ok thanks Ecosse I thought his loan was up. With him doing well and the interest shown he'd be off. It's a small place and small ground. We stayed there a night or two travelling across Spain avoiding the Motorways. The airport (small) runway crosses the main road with level crossing type barriers, weird.
I was expecting Ryan to go back to Norwich.


4.) 23 Sep 2020 18:51:26
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.


5.) 23 Sep 2020 19:27:53
Ecosse, Ryan served us well but we've outgrown his skills. I hope he gets to Norwich. It appears it's what he wants and I'm sure he'll serve them well like he did us!


 

 

22 Sep 2020 13:53:30
Good well balanced report in the Mail from Martin Samuel well worth a read. Includes Sterling "taking a knee" in the penalty area and Mariner letting him off with it. He makes the positive point that not many will leave Molineux with points this season. I would agree with that sentiment totally. We are close to being an even better team!

Ken68

1.) 22 Sep 2020 14:28:18
After reading Nuno’s comments on us playing more attacking football and controlling games I personally can’t see this happening with Current 3-4-3 formation and the central midfield we have I’d like to see him play 3 cm players with Raul and Traore up top with podence playing a Cam role as he looks like he could be a real problem for opposing team in that role.


2.) 22 Sep 2020 15:29:01
Jonny - Good post!
You are one of now numerous people who have made the same comment about the central mid including me.
{Do you mean play 3 in mid and Podence as a 10 or Podence as a 10 in mid with 2 others? If the former we can't play 3 at the back and 2WBs as we now do? }
I would note though that we won't play City every week so won't be chasing shadows quite so much and with new WBs - perhaps Marcal and Semedo - we also will be more solid on the flanks giving some protection to the CM.
Do like the idea of Podence playing the 10 role - agree he looks a really calm and creative player well suited to the attacking aspects of a 10 (if not the defensive ones yet! ) and think Traore should be able to play more off of Jimenez - but the jury is probably out on that despite my oft stated love of the player!


3.) 22 Sep 2020 15:53:09
Hi I would try Dendonker with Neves or moutinho with Podence playing just in front as the more attacking player he looks like he could be a playmaker for us Raul and Traore can play up front then making us more of a threat just my opinion some might not agree but after watching us get out played by Arsenal chelsea and in Europa last few games, The one thing this formation gives us is Raul can stay up front as he’s drifting to much you only have to look at what the Everton manager said to Calvert lewin stay in the area where you can do damage.


4.) 22 Sep 2020 17:02:58
Agree with most of what you guys are saying. I think you can see with the signings that are coming in that it will give us options in style of play that we didn't have last season. Nuno knows what he's doing it's still early days in this weird season with the virus. Fosun are doing right by backing him. The next few games will be very interesting I reckon.


5.) 22 Sep 2020 17:04:19
Our midfield gets hurried out of possession far too easy. I think we need a midfielder who's creative, strong, hard working, comfortable in possession and can chip in with a goal or two. Gold dust maybe. But that's what we need to have any chance of developing from where we are now.


6.) 22 Sep 2020 18:29:13
Sharesum, I'd be very surprised if one didn't arrive Nuno isn't daft. Anyway has anyone seen De Bruyne I believe he's still in Asda car park looking for Daniel!


7.) 22 Sep 2020 21:10:00
Sharesum on last night's evidence, (and even without it), you are obviously correct but even as a mad wolves fan I have to accept that what you call Gold dust, or KDB to you and I, isn't turning up any time soon. {Although Moutinho did and 2 years ago he was that player but time is cruel and his legs now look like they can't do it 38+ games a year especially against the v v top teams}
Vitor has presumably been signed as the new CM and if he is half as good as your wish list it will be amazing.
Meantime we have to look for soln's within our squad and the idea of Jonny's above is sensible.


 

 

21 Sep 2020 20:58:03
Only got radio commentary did Mariner go to the monitor for de Bruyne penalty, out of interest. Sounds like a dive!

Ken68

{Ed047's Note - one of those where the player falls over the legs, they always seem to be given


1.) 21 Sep 2020 21:05:56
Silly challenge. No need for it.


2.) 21 Sep 2020 21:07:56
To be fair, Man City have outclassed us. Peps high press tactics have ensured that we can't get going.


3.) 21 Sep 2020 21:08:04
It was a clear penalty. Utter and complete garbage. Yes City are a class act but Nuno has lost it completely. Neto and Podence simply not good enough. Sell Neves and Traore and get some quality in. Top six? Champions league? People on here need to get real we are nowhere near good enough. Here comes the R word again .


4.) 21 Sep 2020 21:16:24
Poor performance in first half. getting overwhelmed in midfield. AMN would be a good option for centre midfield, strong in the tackle and capable of getting up and down pitch. too many players having an off day. Will be interesting to see if some changes made at half time.


5.) 21 Sep 2020 21:16:42
I don’t post on here all the time after watching Sheffield Utd and the first half tonight I can’t see what Nuno is doing Traore can not and should not ever be played at RWB he can’t play it I’d prefer to see Sanderson or Burr given ago and play Traore upfront with Podence playing CAM or even Silva playing behind the other 2.


6.) 21 Sep 2020 21:24:56
I take it that's a no then! Frankly performance wise I'd given up on a win/ draw before the game. I'm not unduly disappointed tbh. When we get our best team sorted out we'll be ok.


7.) 21 Sep 2020 22:11:53
Commentary on BBC was pretty awful but we were better 2nd half. Ok we lost, not the end of the world. Semedo in Traore further up the pitch where he should be. What do people expect. We'll be fine.


8.) 21 Sep 2020 22:17:56
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.


9.) 21 Sep 2020 22:20:00
Well it wasn't as bad as I thought it might be
Outclassed 1st half and could have been 4 down
We sharpened 2nd half and got tighter and could have got level. Hope marcal injury not too bad. Should have a new RWB soon. Silva needs time. Bit lightweight right now. We should take some confidence from the 2nd half BUT we need a quality creative attacking midfielder.


10.) 21 Sep 2020 22:27:22
Any reason why Sterling was not booked for his theatrical ‘penalty attempt’ dive in the first half?


11.) 21 Sep 2020 23:15:46
Funny SQ I get a completely different R word come to mind when I read your posts. Why come here just to spout endless negative, pessimistic crap? Seems pointless to me, unless you just like attention?


12.) 21 Sep 2020 23:20:18
Podence not good enough SQ? That's the proof I need to confirm you're no Wolves fan.


13.) 22 Sep 2020 00:20:27
Completely agree Jonny, for the life of me I can't understand why Nuno is sticking with Adama at RWB. It's a double loss cause he's woeful at tackling but worse we miss him scaring out of the City defence. Haven't seen much of Burr or Sanderson but one of them HAS to be better option for me. Least then if they give a goal away (as Adama did tonight) then we have him up front to try and help get it back!


14.) 22 Sep 2020 04:31:53
NES : you don’t get booked now for trying to initiate contact with an opposing player, what we used to call diving and cheating is encouraged by all top coaches, the players who are good at initiating contact gain penalties and free kicks around the edge of the box and are called “brilliant”, ”genius”, adored by commentators and pundits and handed Man of the Match trophies.

My favorite player has always been for sheer fun and entertainment was Steve Kindon. You never knew what was going to happen when he got the ball, I don't really think he did either! I'm pretty sure our record buy at the time 100k from Burnley I think. (The fee that is I know he was from Burnley) .

Peter Knowles became a Jehovah's Witness that's why he quit. Was a window cleaner still lives (if he's still alive) in Wolverhampton I believe.

Phil and Thefutureisoldgold.
Phil it was Peter, his brother I think Cyril played for Spurs. Yes he was on the way to being one of the best players this country has produced!
Those games I was at most of them!

Ecosse. I thought we would have had him a couple of weeks ago. Looked just right for us a midfield enforcer do the dirty work. You know what I mean engine room business. But seemed they didn't want to spend that much.

Every chance Phil with silverware. Just need good draws. Semedo looks good. We have all the makings of an excellent team with possibly even more players to come. It's pinch yourself time after all the bad years we went through. That's why I don't get those that downplay stuff and criticise. Be positive, there will be bumps in the road we know that. COYW.

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!
