Ive had it from very good authority Jeff said to Nuno:
"Nuno what's all the fuss about, why do they want us to keep a player that doesn't want to play for us, plus we got 15m for him?
Why do some of our fans paint a doom and gloom picture of what has just been our most successful season since the 70's, do they just want us to buy anyone or take our time and select players that can improve the team, Nuno i'm confused are these supporters? "

Word for word honest :) .

Yeah course it was.

I've had it good authority that Nuno said " **** off Jeff and stop removing my tools of the trade to do the job". He also said " if you sell any more for peanuts my mate Mendez will find me another club"

It was 13.4 million actually! I'm sure it was like that though! I'm sure there will be incomings soon. It's not been the easiest 6 months for anyone and I'm sure Nuno needed a bit of time out with his family. Though I bet he was working as well.


4.) 01 Sep 2020 14:26:15
I think we received 13.5 from Tottenham as bohemians would of got 10% Of the 15 million.

Hatrick away a port Vale I was there lol. 😁
FWAW.

So was I 😀
I loved de wolf as a player he was a class above everyone else when he was with us, and we have the same birthday!
Was gutted when he fell out with McGhee and ended up leaving.


7.) 01 Sep 2020 18:03:13
Superb De wolf was god👌
Happy memories The wolf Man there were good times back then nowhere near where we are today but still it was brill away games and de wolf was fantastic player for us.
FWAW.


8.) 01 Sep 2020 23:11:12
Used to love the way he stood over players after he polaxed them. haha
Tough fella. loved him.


9.) 01 Sep 2020 23:21:33
Lord thor so when do you think we going to sign someone. This month next month. Not looking to good does it when it comes to spending in terms a few quid. Tried to get the arsenal player on the cheap. Sold our player and ended up with nothing.


10.) 02 Sep 2020 10:01:05
Ended up with nothing, did I miss the window shutting over night then?! Get a grip! 🤣.


11.) 02 Sep 2020 10:43:41
demon, don't get me wrong, I would like the right player signed today, but realise its not that simple.
I personally feel confident we will get someone, but i'm not of the opinion if we don't sign anyone that the outcome is nailed on relegation.
We are not privy to what's going on behind the scenes and that makes us fans understandably nervous, but in all fairness we shouldn't know what's going on behind the scenes, i'm pleased to say the days of washing our dirty laundry in public seem to be behind us.

For me, Nuno and Fosun have earn't my trust over the last few years and as such i'm sure they are doing the best for Wolves.

What would really be an asset to the England team would be for Southgate to do one.
Clueless, England will always be mediocre under him.

LordThor

He was the easy and cheap option.


2.) 26 Aug 2020 09:51:39
Easy and cheap but made Euro semi final with second rate team.


3.) 26 Aug 2020 10:25:07
Wow! We played two half decent sides Belgium and Croat! And lost! Never have such an easy route to a World Cup final again. Your like a lot on here Victory, u like losers and are happy with second best.


4.) 26 Aug 2020 11:02:16
I can't understand Southgate even selecting Dirty Harry knowing that he faced charges. The suspended prison sentence indicates that the charges were serious. Typical Man U to get Harry a 'human rights'lawyer. Human rights? Give me a break! Whose human rights? The guys Harry punched? Harry needed a criminal lawyer for criminal charges, and it all backfired. Sounds like Harry's lawyer is no better at defending than Harry is.


5.) 26 Aug 2020 13:54:48
When Southgate missed that penalty for England, the quickest way out of Wembley Stadium was South Gate.

I will start by saying this is not a dig at Traore.
His pace is frightening and he has come on in leaps and bounds this year.

However my personal view is we played a more attacking game pre Traore.
We had more runners into the box and a far more fluent style of football, probably because we didn't have Traore.
Maybe we over committed hence the poor results against lower teams, and Traore alllows us to sit back more compact and use him as the outlet.
But I can't help but feel we played better football pre Traore.
Thoughts?

LordThor

1.) 20 Aug 2020 09:54:01
Lordthor, Glad to see I'm not the only one that thinks Traore is more of a liability than a Help to our team, he's sometimes to slow to make decisions and by the time his brain gets in gear the balls gone and we're defending again.
If a big bid comes in for him l won't be to disappointed.


2.) 22 Aug 2020 00:46:39
V interesting post. Certainly post lockdown in many games we seemed bereft of any sort of attacking ideas beyond give it to Traore. Given he was double or treble marked much of the time it is not surprising that not a lot came from this - particularly as he nearly always goes to the outside and the best we can hope for is a cross into a virtually empty (of Wolves players) box.

But two things to note - this year when he played regularly (last year he didn't) we scored more goals and conceded less - surely a good thing - finishing with more points and far closer to our rivals for the top 6.

Secondly last year especially in the second half of the season Jota was excellent this year sadly he has been v poor and has effectively disappeared for long periods.

Consequently as you say we have lacked runners - note the midfield virtually never goes forward and only Doherty actually offers any sort of goal threat outside of the front 3 - and did seem to play a more conservative game.

Perhaps next year Neto or Podence might offer a variation and a more positive approach down the left and Vinagre ( or even better Alonso from Chelsea? ) might add to the attack more than Otto did.

ps to the poster who suggested selling both Jimenez and Traore I have previously written why we shouldn't sell each of them separately but as a pair- WOW!

Where will the goals come from then? £160m may either be used to try and find suitable replacements (That won't be easy! ) or subsidise the parachute payments after we are relegated - having scored virtually no goals all season.

Be careful what you wish for!

Whilst FFP does mean we may have to sell certain players to allow for a freshening up and expansion of the squad these should be players who are readily replaceable or are weaker members of the starting 11 - NOT the virtually irreplaceable stars of the team!

Future, I do not believe its a case of what's now gone wrong at all.

It is a case of a new style of play as Nuno has said numerous times of late they are trying something new a few new ideas.

To me it is clear we are going through a transition period, I think Nuno set up the old squad and tactics to reach where we are from the championship and 7th was as far as he believes that style will take us give or plus a position or two.

I believe he is now looking at playing a more attacking style further up the pitch more akin to the top 6 clubs style of play.

If you look at the normal style we sit back compact defend everyone knows their job inside out, and then hit on the break.

Look at our last 3/ 4 match's no compact defence midfield not in tune with the defence it is simply not the same shape despite starting positions, its a bit of a mess, and i believe that's because the players have been given slightly different instructions that they are, as a team struggling with, that's why I say we are in for a rough ride for a time, until as before the players get used to and understand the new system Nuno is introducing. Patience people :)

Great transfer window, some real class brought in, doc, Jota, Vin all go with my best wishes for the future.

I believe what has come in will prove to be upgrades on what has gone out, usual classy business done by the club can't wait for Nuno to get to grips and gel them in, not expecting overnight success definitely new tactics style of play, this will take time as we have seen a lot of work to be done.

Cant wait until it starts to click. Patience is a virtue and as a long in the tooth Wolves fan I have that in abundance, 40yrs at the mol does that to a man lol.

TFIG, I believe Nuno is changing tactics, hence we are not locking up the back as per normal.

Trying to play more open, costing us at the moment but if we want to be on a par with the best clubs we need to be able to compete by pressing, have the most possession but at the same time being solid at the back and making that possession count.

Not easy and will take time, expect some uncomfortable performances while we adapt.

Some good points above, Boly back on the left.
Plymouth wolf your comments reference pace I totally agree they did a number on our defense, but normally we read the game far better and give ourselves some space.

I don't think anyone came out of that smelling of roses it was a car crash of a game.
I said after the Sheff game even though we had a flyer of the blocks, we are going to need time because we look at 6's and 7's at the moment and it was rammed home.

I find it hard to understand the level of negativity from some posters here.
The signings Wolves have made look absolute quality, a mixture of experience, mostly young.

More quality on the way if a fraction of the rumours are right.
Doc and Jota out both for a profit.
Both I rated, but if was looking for areas to improve Doc is one, and Jota to inconsistent being the other.
I fancy Liverpool to get the best out of Jota but I don't think that will be overnight.

I trust Nuno's judgment and trust he is backed by Fosun.
Reference Mendes, what a great resourse to have at our disposal.
Great times to be a Wolves fan.

A lot of changes, a few debuts, some stepping up to the first team, always ran a high chance of being disjointed and so it proved.
But we have to have games like this to give players valuable experience, time as they are I think Nuno has thrown caution to the wind to see the new faces in action and made hole sale changes to the attacking line up.

Yes we are out, i'm sure Nuno would have preferred the win but equally sure he felt the benefit he would get from seeing the new and up and coming players plus the experience the new players would get was worth it and will put us in a better position moving forward.
It was an opportunity to blood some.

heh, really good to hear Ken, I first became a Wolves fan early 70's had the Texico Cup triangle banner above my bunkbed i'd be about 7 or 8, my dad has always harped on about the 50's, I'm hoping for a return to the days I never witnessed.
Massively enjoying the football I'm seeing at the Mol these days :)

Spot on Sydneywolf, I think the plan is on track, new signings are always difficult to get right regardless of the price tag its still a gamble if the player will settle/ gel.

Looking forward to watching the wonderful Wolves as they strive for more success with Nuno at the helm.

Whilst I can understand the nervous feelings there are no solid grounds to base those feelings on, these really are great times for any wolves supporter.

Jas, nope, the majority have not just turned on Nuno and Fosun, the usual suspects have as you would expect them too, most read their comments and have a chuckle at the predictability.

I do think the shirt is not great I was holding out for the away strip, but will now get the home :)

On Doc going, right or wrong I read last year Nuno convinced him to stay another year, all I can say is thanks Doc been a great ride, wish him all the best.

Spot on BullysBoy, I do read some posts with disbelief and wonder if a lot of the negative posts are by younger supporters that have not been through the grinder over the last 40 years.
Fosun have made investment like we have not seen before at this club.
They have recruited a top draw manager and dragged us from mediocrity and stagnation.
I often have a difference of opinion with team selection and on occasions tactics, but I would not want any other manager in the world at the moment and that's saying something.
Its not just his formation/ selection/ style of play its the way he manages the press, his rapport with the players his professionalism is reflected in the demeanor of the players the belief they can win every game and the work ethic on the pitch, this all comes from being drilled by the coach's under Nuno.
When I see comments from the players or Nuno its the same humble attitude its about the team not the individual every player seems to have the hunger to improve, they have all bought into project Wolves.
I have not seen this sort of unity at Wolves since the late 70's long may it last, it may take some time with imposed spending restrictions but i'm confident we will get to the top if we keep hold of Nuno.
