Just read that Chelsea have also been in contact about Traore.
Talks are not as advanced as Spurs apparently, but the more clubs that are interested the better, price wise.


{Ed002's Note - There has been no contact from Chelsea.}

1.) 11 Jan 2022 13:06:15
May be click bait Ed002, came from a journalist Dean Jones, but who knows?

2.) 11 Jan 2022 13:15:54
Chelsea are watching Podence.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

3.) 11 Jan 2022 15:18:47
A mate's son plays for Spurs Under13s. They get to hear rumours, but my mate has heard nothing about Traore being of interest to Spurs.

4.) 11 Jan 2022 18:31:17
For what it's worth, my mate with the son who plays for Spurs Under 13s, says that Dele Alli and Ndombele will be sold. He thought I was pulling his leg about Spurs going for Traore! Doesn't believe it. For me that's good news. If Traore goes I'd rather he goes to Barcelona. Sod's law, we sell him to an English clubs and he finds top form.

5.) 11 Jan 2022 19:34:50
I tell you what, they don't half gossip to all and sundry at Spurs. A few years ago, I knew Danny Batth (when he was captain), the 1st team physio and one of the youth coaches and none of them were ever privy to transfer news. Guess Spurs don't mind who knows their business.

6.) 11 Jan 2022 23:09:35
Don't you know,Jas, Daniel Levy holds daily meetings with the U13 squad and their parents so that they are fully briefed on all potential transfer dealings.

7.) 12 Jan 2022 10:09:08
@ Old Wulf - I laughed way too hard at this.

8.) 12 Jan 2022 10:15:55
Very funny guys. Well, it's all I can come up with but it's probably more realistic than our friend up a tree with binoculars outside Molineux! If Traore goes to Spurs, you are right and that's the credibility of the Under 13s rumour-mill down the pan! I'd hate him to go to Spurs though.

9.) 12 Jan 2022 10:18:18
Claims surfacing that West Ham have made an offer for Traore. This could get interesting if true. Personally, I'd still prefer him to go back to Spain.

10.) 12 Jan 2022 11:25:48
Only thing I can think of as to why we haven't heard anything from the man up the tree outside Compton training ground is that it's rather chilly this time of year lol.

Keep the rumours coming as that is all they are 'rumours',as this page is called.

11.) 12 Jan 2022 13:03:15
We apparently have West Ham, Spurs and Chelsea after Traore, not to mention Barcelona. Can't we enter him in Sotheby's auction? Going, going, gone!

12.) 12 Jan 2022 13:07:19
Where is our source who was formerly camped outside Compton up a tree? WE NEED HIM.

13.) 12 Jan 2022 14:48:03
In the meantime Jeff Shi the quiet man says nothing. So until white smoke comes out of the Mol chimney its all froth!

14.) 12 Jan 2022 14:48:40
Bloody cheek!
Spurs now rumoured to want Traore on loan.
Tell `em to take a hike Jeff.

15.) 12 Jan 2022 14:54:03
A good post by ed002 on the spurs rumours page about some if the players Spurs may be interested in. I couldn't see Traore mentioned.

{Ed002's Note - Not since 2015/16 as far as I know.}

16.) 12 Jan 2022 15:23:55
Why would AT want to go to Spurs on a loan deal? doesn't make any sense to me.

{Ed014's Note - maybe he wants to go to a smaller club ?‍♂️

17.) 13 Jan 2022 15:32:05
It is painfully obvious Wolves are not in any position to strengthen this window, so why even consider selling Traore? They have 4 real assets at the club namely Neves, Neto,Jiminez and Traore. No chance of replacing them if sold so why weaken the team. When Premier defenders are asked who they hate to defend against most Traore is always mentioned. If sold definitely double the 20m talked about, otherwise play him, Nuno got the best out of him.

18.) 13 Jan 2022 21:49:57
….because Traore’s a poor footballer - great athlete but no instinct for the game. If he was one of our main assets he’d been in the starting XI every week - he’s an impact sub at best.

19.) 14 Jan 2022 16:05:34
For a poor footballer he has quite a few admirers. True his end product needs work but that's what the coaches are there for. Surely the likes of Spurs, Chelsea, Barcelona and others can't all be wrong. If he could produce the goals and assists every game he would not be warming the bench at Molineux.

20.) 14 Jan 2022 17:28:26
Coaches have worked with him for years - his finishing and crossing aren’t going to get that much better. Fingers crossed we can mug someone for £20m and get a proper footballer in.

21.) 14 Jan 2022 21:32:02
20 mill, good luck with that. Anyway here's to 3 points tomorrow.

22.) 15 Jan 2022 09:03:09
Maybe there's truth in the "rumour" that both Neves and Moutinho don't like passing short to him because of his first touch Jabba, blows too hot and cold for me tbh



08 Jan 2022 11:48:42
Barcelona allegedly interested in Traore to replace Ousmane Dembele if he doesn't renew his contract.
That would be far better than selling him in the Premier League for peanuts (relatively) then facing him on the pitch later.
Wolves and Barcelona have a good working relationship already, so hopefully, it may develop into something.


1.) 08 Jan 2022 12:19:22
Agree. rather him go back Spain, I’d love to keep him but if he doesn’t want to sign new deal what can you do, cash in while still can

2.) 08 Jan 2022 13:30:58
Hopefully included a player in the deal also

3.) 08 Jan 2022 14:04:55

4.) 08 Jan 2022 14:42:53
Agree, with not selling to a PL rival Jota second best goalscoring stats behind Salah has made us look real plonkers, a 40m bargain! Not sure I've seen enough of Trincao yet to make a decision.

5.) 08 Jan 2022 14:44:11
Maxy84 that's not a bad thought. Trincao can only get better, imo, as he adapts more to the Prem. Problem being they might want the Traore money to fund a new CH, who seems to be a Lage priority.

6.) 08 Jan 2022 16:21:58
That makes sense Longmynd. Strengthen a defence that hardly ever concedes and weaken an already goal shy attack.If Bruno really does want yet another centre half then he's knowwhere near as astute as I think he is.

7.) 08 Jan 2022 16:22:44
It's true Trincao can only get better, he has produced very little of note up to now, and too lightweight for the Premier. If Traore should be swapped for him a big fee should be included in Wolves favour.

8.) 08 Jan 2022 16:56:34
Barca buying Traore rests on Ousmane Dembélé being sold. According to the gossip rags.

9.) 08 Jan 2022 18:33:39
It does make sense OldWulf given that Boly's injuries are looking more long term and Sais will probably be away for several weeks at the Africa Cup. Lage is reduced to recalling a couple of on loan youngsters to fill the gap or re-purpose Dendonker.
I'm sure they're not blind to the lack of goals.

10.) 08 Jan 2022 23:00:50
Barca can't afford him

11.) 09 Jan 2022 07:51:06
Don't forget Marcal played many games for Lyon at centre half,Longmynd. Hoever can also play there and our yet to be see Columbian is on his way back.

12.) 09 Jan 2022 10:07:47
I've always seen Marcal as the solution to replace Saiss if no new CB is signed. That's why I think Giles was recalled with RANs recent injury problems.

Sanderson and Giles will likely play today in the Cup but when the league resumes I expect Marcal, Coady and Kilman to be the back 3. I am happy to see the youngsters get a go though - we've bought a lot 'for the future' players in over the last 5 years.

13.) 09 Jan 2022 10:14:33
Wolves will only bid for players who have no interest in coming here. Monaco defender 30 million so called bid, no interest in leaving the ligue 1 side. It's to appease the fans. No ambition

14.) 09 Jan 2022 11:58:09
Barcelona still have to move on players before they can register Ferran Torres before anything else not so sure they have any money and they will not pay much up front anyway. But if we are unlikely to be buying it doesn't make much difference does it.

15.) 09 Jan 2022 13:18:33
That's Adama cup tied now.

16.) 09 Jan 2022 15:44:51
Would Adama and Semedo be cup tied abroad?

17.) 09 Jan 2022 17:28:16
Time to get rid of traore now. No desire to sort his contract by the looks.
No desire to chase down or even run for the ball unless at his feet. Prodence has been disregarded since he got here but last two games now has ran his sock off that's commitment.
who would you rather play especially when Neto is back.

18.) 09 Jan 2022 18:18:26
Morocco (saiss) play Ghana tomorrow 4pm k.o.
I believe

19.) 09 Jan 2022 21:27:21
All good points gents. Not to be fussy but I would ask who Podence has been 'disregarded' by?! I think us fans have always been impressed but also waiting for him to find his consistency. Which in fairness niggling injuries has mostly prevented, not sure anyones disregarded him mind?
I'm also not convinced that Barcelona have any interest in Adama to be honest. They have SO many similar players (positional wise) that they are desperately trying to currently shift from the wage bill!

20.) 09 Jan 2022 23:39:36
Disregarded by the managers. I know he has had lots of unfortunate injury's but you don't get consistent if your not played week in and week out.

21.) 10 Jan 2022 00:03:32
You can't get played week in week out if your always trying to get back to match fitness. I get what your saying but I think you have to remember that (as the tale goes:) that Sellars and the club wanted Dani Olmo and Nuno over ruled them and went for Podence. So Nuno must have rated him pretty highly, I think it was just Nunos way to bring peeps in slowly (made even slower with the niggling injuries). With Lage I think Podence has usually been involved one way or another when ever he's been fit. The injuries have been the issue, obvs not his fault but in time gone by whenever he's looked like he's really starting to find his feet he's had a set back. Probs just the usual stuff of a player adapting to the Prem, let's hope he goes from strength to strength from here on eh ?

22.) 10 Jan 2022 07:30:13
Podence has proved his worth over the past two seasons IMHO, him and Neto. Both give it 100% when playing. I’m still on the fence when it comes to Traore, him leaving is a potential blow - but he hasn’t covered himself in glory when he did get his opportunities to play this season. 18 appreances no goals and no assists.
I can’t help but think he wants out at this point.

23.) 10 Jan 2022 16:52:16
Debbie for me we sell Traore when it's best for us not when it suits him!
Pods I think when fit has always looked a very good player intelligent always looking to make a positive pass. In my opinion when he's playing as he is atm a better player than Olmo. Very much a team player and works hard for the team.



05 Jan 2022 10:36:59
Wolves have signed 26 year old Japanese midfielder Hayao Kawabe from Grasshoppers. 18 appearances for the Swiss side scoring 4 and 3 assists from an attacking midfield role. They must rate him.


1.) 05 Jan 2022 11:11:35
They have also brought our loanee Toti Gomes over from Grasshoppers where he's been since we signed him 18 months back. Left sided centre back/wing back he's been doing very well. A chance for Bruno to have a look. Don't forget we also have Bola the Hungarian international who plays on the right on loan there as well. Again makes you wonder why any interest in Doc.

2.) 05 Jan 2022 12:33:29
Both will be returning to Grasshoppers on loan for the rest of this season.

3.) 05 Jan 2022 13:11:06
I (probably like most have not heard of Hayao Kawabe) so I went for the lowest hanging fruit and had a look on YouTube. Now I always treat YouTube highlights with caution as it can make a very bad player look good (with the exception of Rajiv van La Parra) and Kawabe looks decent.

I say all this with an air of caution.

4.) 05 Jan 2022 13:15:29
Jas yes I know, sorry should have added that. It's logical it's the Swiss break and gives Bruno a chance to evaluate them in first team training. Hopefully he'll see good things from them.

5.) 05 Jan 2022 14:16:50
Both are typical fosun business young and hungry but not ready for the big time yet but we really don't need much some cover at the back everywhere else we are pretty much covered if all the injured players do in deed come back and hit the ground running soon as neto is ready we will see more goals I really think that will help Raul out so much its so easy for teams to just put 2 cb on him but neto back teams will have to come up with something different

6.) 05 Jan 2022 14:21:05
Apparently, they bought the deal for Kawabe forward to this month as he is currently eligible to sign/play in the UK, whereas, potential future rule changes may have prevented it.
Sounds like the smart thing to do then, as Jas/Ken have said, leave him in Switzerland for the rest of the season, as he has been an important player for them.



10 Dec 2021 12:13:57
Seeing one rumour linking Deli Ali to Wolves. Almost certainly clickbait, but thinking about it, why not? We need midfield reinforcements and he definitely needs to get away from Spurs imo. Valued at £27M so within range and can be a match winner on his day. Thoughts?


1.) 10 Dec 2021 13:16:35
This "link" came from Paul Merson's comments on Soccer Saturday. who suggested Wolves buying DA. With that said I'd rather him over Renato Sanches, and they cost in and around the same money. Would the allure of the Old Gold be enough for Deli Ali?

2.) 10 Dec 2021 17:45:46
I wouldn't touch Dele Ali with a barge pole! The guy had a lot of potiential and THEN seemingly spent the last 3 years going out clubbing! This is a guy that was the next big thing for England, followed by the next three Spurs managers ALL very pubically questioning his commitment to the team! He'd be a terrible influence in our young squad and frankly £27m for a player that can't get into the current squad at Spurs is a lot of money! For that money I'd try for Harry Winks first, he might not be as flash but then I've never seen a single manager openly question his commitment to the team?!

3.) 10 Dec 2021 20:13:31
BullysBoy, I agree Ali seems to have done nothing for the last 5 years of his career from what I can see.

4.) 10 Dec 2021 23:54:25
So I suspect after me poo pooing Sanches and Ali peeps will ask me who I'd go for. Well firstly I don't think we will spend £30m in Jan, the teams doing OK and Fosun have always turned away from big Jan moves. However, if I was going to spend £30m in Jan personally I'd test Brighton resolve with a decent bid for Yves Bissouma. The guys relentless and would offer us exactly what we are missing. Sadly I don't thnk we will be spending that kind of money on one player any time soon but as usual I hope I'm wrong, time will tell COYW ?

5.) 11 Dec 2021 09:56:10
I agree with you BullysBoy. I think we'll look to sign someone on loan however I think Lage is also looking at other options already at the club such as Jordao regaining full fitness and providing another option, likewise if Neto is ready to go in mid January, then the likes of Trincao and Podence can be played more centrally behind the strikers.

6.) 11 Dec 2021 16:41:56
A good exciting player the Brighton one,
I think deli Ali a no no the same as you Bullysboy.

Sanchez I have my heart in it he will be the one to make the big difference for us if we get him hope I'm not dreaming as easily could be a flop whether through been out injured or just not good enough.

I posted my thoughts on January window where there not many major players available but what happens will reveal.
As the time seems to go past faster and faster it will soon be 2022 then 2030 when we will be kings of the world lol.

7.) 12 Dec 2021 20:45:30
Dele could work out and I would have him he needs matches to play his way back into England so I think there will be motivation for him

8.) 13 Dec 2021 14:17:46
Back into England?! He already needs to do enough work just to get back into an under performing Spurs team! With the ethos Southgate has Dele will not be in an England squad any time soon. He's fallen SO far down the pecking order I'll be amazed if he gets another cap, who would you call up right now Dele Ali or Connor Gallagher?! And consider that currently Gallagher isn't even in the squad himself! ?

9.) 14 Dec 2021 11:14:20
I don't see Dele bringing anything we need tbh! When he's in the game he can be a terrific player but he is very quick to get disheartened and fades out of the game. He has never been one to roll his sleeves up and work in the engine room. So wrong for us to big a gamble for me.

10.) 16 Dec 2021 17:03:10
Don't you think he is just the type of player that would sign for Villa and be a great success perhaps filling that Grealish shaped hole they have?

If not Villa then Everton

11.) 16 Dec 2021 20:49:19
Window- I get your point and I think getting him out of London would probs be a good start. The right manager can definitely change a players entire career! I think the thing is for me when you see the raft of VERY high calibre managers he's worked with since Poch and they all have one thing in common, they've all had to explain his absence from the line up by basically saying 'he needs to work harder'! Who knows maybe he'll prove me wrong but the few times I've seen him lately he's been absolute bobbins! ?



03 Nov 2021 09:19:29
I've been reading that in addition to the Donny van de Beek interest Lage is still keen on Renato Sanches so Wolves will re-visit that one. One or the other I would imagine.
Also, they are looking to sign Hee Chan Hwang permanently for about £14M. Let's see what January brings.


{Ed002's Note - There is still interest from clubs, including Wolves, in Sanches.}

1.) 03 Nov 2021 10:50:46
Obviously Sanches is untried at PL level, but Hwang isn't. Four goals in eight appearances says that, plus a good disallowed goal against Everton. Hwang has taken to the PL like a duck to water. We could sign him in January. I would be interested in Donny as well, as he has at least settled into life in England, which is sometimes difficult to do, unlike Rafa Mir, etc.

{Ed001's Note - Sanches isn't untried at PL level - he played and flopped badly for Swansea in the Prem.}

2.) 03 Nov 2021 11:10:10
Longmynd I think in Jan we need to add 3 bodies - net not gross! .
I was thinking 2 CBs and one CM but if you take both of those 2 plus one CB it would make a great Jan.
If we get two mids you move Dendonker back to CB cover not CM cover!
If i'm being greedy I would want a back up CF in case Jimenez gets an injury as i'm not sure Hwang down the middle on his own would work?

3.) 03 Nov 2021 12:34:18
To be fair Ed002 that's been a few years ago now 2017/18, he does appear to have come on a bit.

TFOG I think that's not far off, however, with Kilman and Saiss playing so well now and with Boly in reserve and Dendonkers ability to cover at CB I think Lage will focus on a skilful attacking midfielder to play with Neves. Moutinho will inevitably need more downtime.

Maybe, a loan striker to cover Raul, but as they've said they won't take just anybody.

Still a bit mystified with the Traore situation unless a deal is already done for a January move. It was interesting how well the team worked on Monday without him. I always felt Nuno unbalanced the side just to fit him in.

{Ed001's Note - it's 1 not 2! Not convinced he has come on, he is playing in a weak league, constantly picks up niggly injuries and still the same slow-thinking player he was back then. He doesn't look suited to a fast-paced league, it is that simple. He has the speed of thought of roadkill, but you can get away with it in France where you have time and space on the ball. Similar to international footie, it is a totally different game to the Prem.}

4.) 03 Nov 2021 13:57:51
Sorry Ed001 I didn't notice that it was you commenting. Apparently, Liverpool and Arsenal are amongst the clubs considering him, besides Wolves.
Personally, I don't follow French football so I can't comment, but as you say the Prem is another level, in terms of pace of play.

{Ed001's Note - I know, I dread the thought of Liverpool signing him! Given time and space he is a good player, but so are most professional players as it is easy to play when given time and space. He also has a terrible fitness record and carries way too much weight, I have no idea why Liverpool would have any interest in him, he does not fit Klopp's style at all. At least he has stopped passing to advertising hoardings now, so he has improved from his Swansea days....}

5.) 03 Nov 2021 15:06:36
Ed001. Nothing like being a bit bitchy, speak your mind why don't you! I think with Bruno knowing the player well ATM I trust his judgement and I think if he get his shirt on the right way round he'd be better than some of the players we've been linked too in the last twelve months or so!

{Ed001's Note - hardly being bitchy, I could have said a lot more if I was. You can trust his judgement, but it was him that pushed to take him to Swansea too, so not sure I would be that keen to trust that kind of judgement.}

6.) 03 Nov 2021 16:11:58
I can see both sides of the argument here. During Euro 2016, Sanches was a revelation and got a big move to Bayern Munich but couldn't replicate his form. Swansea was a disaster and the move to Lille has rekindled his career. If Bruno can get him adjusted to the pace of the PL, he could be an asset to us. There are many players in the PL who have come from France and some have adapted well, (Marcal and Ait-Nouri spring to mind) whereas some won't (Morgan Sansom). Hopefully we will loan him in order to see how he settles rather than buy him outright.

{Ed001's Note - fingers crossed if you get him, he works out for you.}

7.) 03 Nov 2021 17:55:10
There talk of wolves in for highly rated Stoke defender 23 years old apologies I don't have his name.
I'm sure someone will put his name on.
I think sanches can be a cracking signing and hopefully like Ed001 says if we get him he works out to be a cracking signing for us.
All I do is put my trust in fosun and Lage if they sign him to me they must have the belief that he is a quality addition.
When he in a wolves shirt then all will be decided good/bad.
All a matter of opinions and this is mine.?

8.) 03 Nov 2021 18:00:43
Passing to advertising hoardings ? I might be jumping to conclusions here, but I'm guessing you're not a fan. ?

9.) 03 Nov 2021 18:02:49
I think Hwang is obviously a no brainer.

Donny van de Beek makes sense as an addition too. More attacking threat from midfield. I actually think he is slightly underrated on the defensive end too. Can definitely put a tackle in.

I'd love to see the Renato addition especially with the progress he has made. I hold reservations whether he would jump from a Champions League team, albeit its only Lille not a top tier CL team. The ingredients are there. Gestifute cleint and Portuguese. Let's see.

10.) 03 Nov 2021 18:12:15
Harry Souttar the highly rated Stoke defender.

11.) 03 Nov 2021 19:52:49
Phil - seen that but as BullyB always says the British premium may put us off?
Longmynd - I hear you re Kilman but Boly and Saiss will be gone for AFN this Jan and are both the wrong side of 30 and in Boly's case in particular are starting to become injury prone. Given we play with 3 and only have 4 plus Dendonker we are probably a body short anyway so I think we def need to add 1 and as I say would probably prefer 2 as I think Neves, Moutinho and 1 backed up by Dendonker is more "adequate" than our back 3 options plus 1.
Interesting the views on Sanches - I have to admit my only knowledge of him is Swansea so tend to agree with Ed 01 but his reviews from France have been v strong and Lage to date has done enough more than earn my trust and if he wants him v happy to go down that route.
Surely we could also have the same thoughts on Van de Beek - his time at United for whatever reason has been far from successful but his time at Ajax was a huge success?

12.) 03 Nov 2021 20:27:19
I think January window it's going to be very hard to find a club where they going to sell a premier league quality c/b.
The homegrown route agree the price will be inflated in the Stoke defender.
The rise of kilman this season has been brilliant.
Mosquera I looked back the forecast for his return is an estimate with such surgery he had usually 4 to 5 months so it looks a little too close for his return when boly and saiss are away in Africa cup of nations but it may be, (there's still 2 months before January.)
We could get a loan.player who knows it's just a guessing game at present.

13.) 03 Nov 2021 20:30:04
Sorry Longmynd didn't comment on your Traore point. If you have ever read my posts on here you know I am a massive fan!
However with Neto coming back and Hwang playing so well we do appear well stocked with "Widemen" {Podence is excellent and Trincao will have his fans as well) cf CB,CM CF.
Surely if we do sell him though we must get far more than the £35m being touted. He is twice the player Jota is and he went for £40m and look how he has worked out playing for a side able to exploit his talents better than we did/can.
To get the best out of Traore we do need to play faster and more directly than we currently are doing so but if we want to be a top side we need to do that anyway!

14.) 03 Nov 2021 21:13:52
Phil as always you make sensible points.
Yes it is going to be v hard - Jan is normally even tougher than Summer!
But despite Kilman's emergence, who has been a revelation, I think we do need to get someone in (sadly agree Jan will come too soon for Yerson and he is still a player with potential not a proven article as he has virtually no adult football behind him and what he has is in Columbia - hardly Prem league standard).
Could Sanderson be brought back and do a job - although he is also unproven at the very top level?
However you look at it its going to be interesting.
ps Do you remember us discussing the next 8 games - 5 games ago. The predictions looking good now. Fingers crosed we can close out the 8 undefeated and with perhaps another couple of wins!
pps Merry Christmas!

15.) 03 Nov 2021 21:33:45
Phil - wacky idea
What about taking that chap Nat Phillips from Liverpool as part of the money they owe us?
He was excellent for them as an out and out old fashioned stopper - something we lack when Boly isn't playing - and we shoud be able to negotiate a good deal given the "relationship" between the clubs I e they still owe us a bucket load for Jota and want to buy Traore (as will half the top clubs in Europe!).

I must admit TFOG that I hadn't considered the AFN re; Boly and Saiss, so yes another central defender may well be under consideration. May even be a Sanderson recall, as you suggest.

No problem on a Traore response, I admit he is a real crowd pleaser and I do agree the game needs to keep up with him. Maybe this has contributed to his 'no end product' reputation as only the very best can do it all alone.

As the team evolves into Lage's faster attacking model he may become more effective but I just think he will get sold as his 'imminent signature' hasn't happened. The club seem pretty adamant on £50M, however.

Hi Thefutureisgold, I really do have to disagree with Traore being better than Jota .
Yes he is more dynamic and exciting moving forward but loses the ball to often same when he tries to bring the ball out of defence causes us problems,and of course not much of an end product.
Jota who I rated very highly was excellent when bringing the ball out yes he lost it sometimes but had great link up with Raul hence both scored goals. As someone has said I think Nuno unbalanced the side because he had to have Traore in and I think the tactics were wrong. Jota was a tough cookie and didn’t sit on his ass slapping the floor when he lost the ball,
Don’t get me wrong I love to watch Traore in full flow but he’ 25 now and we cannot wait forever

Forgot to say that Jota was a far far better team player than Traore

I've had a feeling that Traore will not move on in this window despite all the rumours to the contrary, not sure why, just a feeling.
Today I read, a journalist, Duncan Castles has stated as things stand there have been no negotiations of note which would see Traore join Tottenham.
Unless Levy is planning a last minute smash and grab could Traore stay or just move elsewhere?


1.) 15 Jan 2022 13:56:35
Having said that I've just read a Daily Express article saying just about the opposite. Rumours, eh. ?

2.) 15 Jan 2022 14:12:33
Don't worry about traore, wheres neves today? Interesting line up with donks in midfield and toti coming in. I'm going an uncertain 2-1 today, uncertain because of saints 5 man midfield and tori's awareness on debut. Fingers crossed here. COYW.

3.) 15 Jan 2022 14:33:57
I read the same report Longwolf. Plus, Bruno has said that no enquiries have been made for Traore from ANY team. And yet we are told that Newcastle have now thrown their hat into the ring for him. Click bait probably or Traore's agent trying to engineer a move and pick up commission. Honestly I can't see his agent not trying it on, as he would get nothing if Traore stays at Wolves. I'm happy for him to stay and I would back Bruno to crack the enigma that is Traore.

I agree Abbeywolf 2-1 to Wolves

5.) 15 Jan 2022 23:33:06
Do you know who his agent is Deep Throat?

Premier League have just posted their greatest saves of the season (part 1) video on YouTube.
Of course, the best keeper in the League is not featured, but is that more of a compliment to our defense?
Apart from the one Monday night which will probably be in part 2 has he needed to pull off worldies?


1.) 08 Jan 2022 17:38:46
I just watched part 2 de gea man utd double save from Saiss at the mol.
Sa wasn't featured.

Plenty of us on here have criticised the standard of refereeing in the Premier League. I think the foul given against Doherty denying him his first goal for Tottenham, as shown on MOTD last night, was beyond laughable.

For those that didn't see it, Doherty with his back to the goalkeeper jumped to head the ball. Forster came out, jumped into Doherty's back to collect it, dropped the ball and back-healed it into his own goal and that was ruled out as a foul on the goalkeeper. The real joke was that VAR endorsed the referees decision.

As an ex goalkeeper (amateur) that was pathetic, but just another in a long line of result influencing pathetic refereeing decisions.

PS I'm no Tottenham fan, but really!

For those still struggling with the Wolves App. Mine wouldn't load at all (still the same this morning), and kept returning to my phones menu screen. I went into playstore and updated the App, works fine now.

After 16 months out it seems Jordao is back training with the first team squad. Lage has stated he has 6 weeks to stake a claim before the January window. Not sure if that implies a sale or loan, if he fails.
Personally, I hope he makes it as from what I remember he looked very decent before his injury. He could be the attacking midfielder we've all been calling for. Thoughts?


1.) 24 Nov 2021 23:45:06
I said something similar a week or so ago, Lage keeps mentioning him so feels like he’s in the plans. Just hope he can take his chance.

2.) 25 Nov 2021 08:31:29
Sorry Goat must have missed that, but I do remember him as a classy looking player, so let's hope he does bring something.

3.) 26 Nov 2021 18:10:54
With Jordao being part of the deal that brought Neto to our club if he can bring anything close to that level he will be a big asset to us. I certainty hope so!

Sounds like a'done deal' Deep Throat. Just checked out the dreaded YouTube highlights and he looks tricky and quick. Read two different versions of this story, one calling him a winger and one a striker.
Fabrizio Romano was the journalist who broke the story but at 20 years old will he be 1st team or under 23's.

Claims surfacing that West Ham have made an offer for Traore. This could get interesting if true. Personally, I'd still prefer him to go back to Spain.

It does make sense OldWulf given that Boly's injuries are looking more long term and Sais will probably be away for several weeks at the Africa Cup. Lage is reduced to recalling a couple of on loan youngsters to fill the gap or re-purpose Dendonker.
I'm sure they're not blind to the lack of goals.

Maxy84 that's not a bad thought. Trincao can only get better, imo, as he adapts more to the Prem. Problem being they might want the Traore money to fund a new CH, who seems to be a Lage priority.

Actually Ron it nearly did against Man Utd when Silva put his foot up in the dying moments. Personally, I don't think there was much in that either but apparently it's the high boot that is the foul with or without contact/injury.

I think most sensible Man U fans would echo that Rated. I did read one earlier who thought Neves would improve as a player at United ?
I hope we field a strong team on Sunday to try and keep a winning momentum going.

Lage's early critics aside Ed0047, most of us could see the positive changes starting to take effect. It's just the continuous obsession with the media favourites. Positive or negative, it's always about them, never the other team.

I know it's down to lazy or incompetent punditry/journalism but it just wears a bit thin, on occasion.


{Ed047's Note - I know mate and it’s hard to ignore it but you were awesome against United and a pleasure to watch.

I think the media just love bashing United and they deserve it and it gets the relevant outlook the clicks they crave.

Have a great season and enjoy your boys and the football they’re playing, long may it continue!
