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.

Well not what was expected, and to be fair deserved.
I accept when I say to a colleague you need to doff the cap and he says what you talking about, I'm getting long in the tooth, but the team selection was clearly one of disrespect to the cup.
I like the cup there is only one really the FA cup, we are not likely to hit European places and despite the hopes of several doom and gloom merchants on here that I do not class as fans
we are not getting relegated, which leaves the cup!
Unlike my normal stance I am disappointed with Nuno on this one, he has chucked the opportunity of an exciting cup run away from the fans.
His team selection was a statement that said this is not important, unusually I think he has judged this one wrong in our position this was important to the fans maybe not so for he team but the fans yes it was important and feel a little cast aside on this one.

It's hard to imagine wolves without Nuno now, but that was awful,
Southampton were on a terrible run of form, and Nuno steps in like farther Christmas giving away game s like presents.
Ralf must be over the moon, he's just won 2-0 with the worst defence he's ever managed.
God knows what will happen Sunday but every wolves fans patience is wearing thin
Rant over COYW.

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

1.) 26 Aug 2020 09:46:17
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!

I have been watching Wolves since the 70's under Nuno I have enjoyed the best polished skilful exciting football I have ever seen at the Mol.

Troubled waters, yep, oddest season ever yep.

Nuno gets my vote of confidence, he's earned it, I would not judge any manager on this season would be madness.

I for one, can't wait to find out Ray :)

Seems 9 out of 10 games a waste of a spot, we could have had a footballer playing in his position.

Wow, what a crap thread, thank the good lord for Bullysboy.
Clearly we are having a confidence issue, good players playing poorly and the signs are there, the rush to pass a ball even if its to know one, even under less pressure than you would expect, its clear the players are feeling the slump.
Bullysboy, absolutely on the money, this cat be fixed by an influx of players, we have good players they don't need a further dent in confidence what they really need is the fans!

I think we all may need to reign in our aspirations a little, its not exactly been a normal cash generating season for any club.

Apart from the lack of fans revenue, wolves are also one of the teams that I believe have suffered from not having the fans present where as other clubs may have benefited from baying mobs.

I think this season was earmarked by Nuno as a season to develop and change and the ensuing mayhem has not helped.

Im not concerned about relegation it won't happen, but likewise hopes of big buys I also do not believe will happen and if we make 10th that will be suffice for me, I see next season as a season to push higher, and I also believe that is what the plans always were, prior to this debacle of a season for all clubs.

@Camo, agreed I rate Killman highly, not sure what the issue is with him but Nuno does not seem to like him.
I think he's been solid every time he's played.

No excuses for todays performance. so here's my excuses. :)

Seriously the team has not been the steady ship of the last few seasons with players in and out largely due to injuries.

But today wow. second to every ball, as soon as a player laid the ball off, it was like his job was done and he became static, no thought to move and make himself available again.

Effort really did seem lacking, compounded by some horrific individual performances.

Looked like the players have decided the season has ended early, would have been slightly different with 30k wolves fans shouting from the stands, hey ho.

Next season can't come soon enough.

Only pluses for me Silva looks like he's getting less lightweight, Samedo looked like he triewd to put a shift in with no support and Ait is improving game on game but a way to go.

Solid posts above, agree Nuno's position should not be questioned at this point in time.
Also agree not all Nuno at fault here, for instance Saiss had thirty yards to size up the incoming lingretard and failed, Saiss knows that was poor from him, also unusual (although I prefer Killman) Saiss is more than capable of dealing with that situation and has done probably 90 out of 100 times, blaming Nuno for these type of failings is a bit harsh.

Hi Maninblack63

I would be surprised if they did not tighten the purse strings, seems a logical response to a season with reduced revenue.
Have to ensure a sound financial footing and I have been happy so far with them treading the tight rope on investment/ ffp.

Questions over bangs/ bucks reference signings will always be the talk of the show, can't help but feel after following football for a number of years its a bit of a lottery, but I think we are on the positive side.

PT, crackers season for just about every team, crazy results all over the place.
I stomached the 4 - 1 on actually it was 2 -1 but for daft subs having a run out.
City are a class apart at the moment and that MU result after cities run, well put in perspective Fulham beat Liverpool. mad season.
I do think that all though we have had a mediocre season, it has not been a total wash out, lessons will have been learnt by Nuno and the squad, we did need to change the way play and all this hopefully adding knowledge to a better season next term.
