Osorio set to sign?

Spurs are rumoured to be about to offer £18m for Traore. Although with Neto coming back Traore could become surplus to requirement IMO not at £18m. Tell Levy to take a hike.

Mikebayleaf

1.) 10 Jan 2022 13:16:33
Levy NO WAY! Double that if he goes to Spurs. I would far rather he went to Barcelona than see him improve his lot in the prem. Quite clearly he wants to move on and he will.
Bruno has to make sure of getting a centre back; so would prefer to get transfer sorted soon if money is going to be all important in this window.


2.) 10 Jan 2022 13:42:47
£18million plus Deli then yes.
Cash only then at least £25million.


3.) 10 Jan 2022 18:10:02
I'd take £25 million cash or £20 million with add ons. £5 million for 15 appearances £50 million for 10 goals scored over 2 seasons


4.) 10 Jan 2022 19:40:05
Twitter talk is saying straight swap for Dembele from Barca. Oh well, only 3 more weeks of these rumours to go.


5.) 10 Jan 2022 20:59:40
Was that Talking Wolves by anychance Jas?
That guy is a clown posts a load of rubbish on twitter.


6.) 11 Jan 2022 08:12:02
Now “Dangerous” Dave Edwards is urging Wolves to sell contract misfit Adama Traore in his weekly column in today’s E&S.


7.) 11 Jan 2022 21:16:38
I'd take a straight up swap for Dele Alli, third fastest player to reach 50 goals in the premier League I think. Just needs a confidence boost.


8.) 12 Jan 2022 11:00:05
To seanmorton95 - in what position in our system would the lazy Deli Alli actually play? And who would he play instead of?
As we currently play a 3-4-3 surely he can only play on the left side of the front 3 where Podence currently plays and Neto or Hwang will soon be available.
Sounds like a bizarre idea to me.


9.) 12 Jan 2022 11:31:04
He can also play in midfield and is best as a shadow striker, so if Bruno does switch to 4-4-2 he'd fit in behind Raul. Yes he's lazy but he's shown more promise than traore ever has.


10.) 12 Jan 2022 14:57:32
Haha, if Ali has shown more promise than Adama ever has then why is Conte the third manager in a row desperately trying to shift him?! Whereas we are the second club in a row desperately trying to tie Adama down?! Doesn't add up does it, he WAS full of promise and then he had his first drink and ever since then EVERY manager he's had has openly questioned his commitment to the cause?! As I've said before I wouldn't touch him with a barge pole and I suspect Lages to sensible to do it as well!


11.) 12 Jan 2022 16:24:03
I don’t think he could play in our midfield as we only play two in the centre and he’s a bit of a luxury. Even if we go to Lage’s preferred 442 he just doesn’t fit for me, but that’s only my opinion Seanmorton.
Personally I don’t think Spurs have a player available that I would want - but Chelsea do!


12.) 12 Jan 2022 16:28:42
Also, if Chris Wood goes for £25m Adama has to be worth £35m of anyones money!


13.) 12 Jan 2022 16:51:13
Also FYI he was the third fastest SPURS player to reach 50 goals NOT the Prem. In actual fact he doesn't even feature in the top 10 quickest Prem players to get to 50! He has ability but this ain't FIFA and a player with a bad attitude can ruin teams (please see Roger Johnson)!


 

 

01 Aug 2021 11:52:13
Rumoured that Wolves are interested in Aaron Ramsey. A strange one to me, he's 30 and costly, he may have experience but isn't he the wrong age range. Moutino is 34 coming 35 so both together in midfield would be aged. Wolves may view him as a stop-gap pending the younger players coming through but that's an expensive stop gap. Ramsey's wages would not be sustainable either, so on balance I hope it's not true. Can do better with the likes of Paulinha, Cavhalio IMO. What a mistake it was letting Goncalves go.

Mikebayleaf

1.) 01 Aug 2021 14:00:31
If FOSUN have ambition then Ramsey could fit well sharing the Moutinho spot and part insurance against Neves leaving us at a late stage as his head is being turned. Nothing against Paulinho or Cavhalio but are they on Wolves radar stil?


2.) 01 Aug 2021 15:57:56
Just need to match his £400k per week salary.


3.) 01 Aug 2021 16:12:37
That is a shame JasM.


4.) 01 Aug 2021 18:56:03
Our club is a investment for fosun nothing else buying 17to 23r olds for 5/ 10/ 15k players and selling them on two three years later with the odd exception for 10/ 30k profit .
Fosun will keep us in the premiership aways finishing between 7th and 15th with the occasional cup run that we might be granted .
We have to remember we are not a family club anymore family clubs do not survive in the premiership.
Regarding our team / squad
To obtain a top half finish we need a good established centre half plus a forward a proven goal scorer .
Neves/ Traore / podence who knows if they’ll be with us this year or next but fosun will have it covered .


5.) 02 Aug 2021 07:12:59
Wolf1960. Thanks for reality check and the fosun 10 year plan. They really almost made a false start in the first 3 years with few injuries. Maybe a larger squad full of youth will continue some progress. Cannot afford expensive prima donna players who are no longer hungry for success.
Bruno will have knowledge of their plan. COYW.


6.) 02 Aug 2021 13:28:56
Rest assured Bruno
Would have been given plans . told in no uncertain terms and spoke to six months ago the plans of fosun well before any appointment Bruno knows more about wolves fc including the squad than any wolves fan he would have been given a blue print six months ago and videos of the last three years regarding the squad and players .
Fosun are a business and a business that failure is not excepted.
Fosun are here to build with youth / young players with the odd exception.
Relegation is not on the agenda if it was their would be no point in buying wolves in the first place .
Wolves fc now are a building in progress over the next five seasons we will see players come and go plus managers . we wolves fc are growing at the moment 7th to 15th in the premiership with the odd exceptions of cup runs anything else will be a bonus .
It’s impossible to rub shoulders with Man City Man Utd Liverpool at the moment but five years time under fosun I believe will be possible.
My advice to any wolves fan sit back enjoy the ride it will come .


 

 

07 Jul 2021 17:05:01
Now rumoured that Nuno may want to take Traore to Spurs. My reaction is please do at the right price, he's over rated as seen by Spain at the Euros, difficult as seen by contract talks and the money, providing it's enough could be better used for the team.

Mikebayleaf

1.) 07 Jul 2021 17:21:00
Would hate for Traore to leave the club, but I think the wolves will be fine with the addition of Trincao. I hope that money could be used to bolster the center midfield and bring in another CB or two.


2.) 07 Jul 2021 18:12:28
Funny how Nuno is being linked with all the Wolves players who ended up costing him his job last season. Today its Traore, yesterday it was Jimenez and last week it was Neves and Moutinho.

It's just the papers making stuff up.


3.) 08 Jul 2021 09:34:32
Jas M pretty much summed it up.


4.) 08 Jul 2021 09:41:17
99% true Jas. Trouble is the 1% of rumours that turn out to be accurate. For example, Jota to Liverpool, Doc to Spurs, Nuno to Spurs (earlier this year) .


5.) 08 Jul 2021 11:13:44
Who out of current squad would you sell?
Personally i'd sell.
Traore think he'd struggle in a 442 in prem. Imbalances the team as he doesn't track back. I do get that he can be unplayable but was it 4 goals and 4 assists last season? isn't consistent enough for what wolves want which is european football. Plus likely to get 40m for him.
Boly-not the same player since C.V. struck not sure why.10-15m
Moutinho- if he doesn't want player coach role then I thibk we should move on for both joao and the club.5m
Mir-17m
Cutrone-10-15m
Vinagre-13m
Question marks over
Rui, Neves, Donk, Saiss
Cant see
Neto or Coady being sold.


6.) 08 Jul 2021 11:24:23
@ Madman Mir-17m, Cutrone-10-15m, Vinagre-13m not sure about the costs you've suggested, but I'd agree that they're all but sold.

Really need to look at another CB as Boly will likely be gone for the AF-Con and as suggested the 'Rona may have affected him in terms of health.

I can see Dendonker being kept as Bruno likes to play with DMFs which is his natural position. Neto is injured until October so he isn't going anywhere this season.

I really don't envisage Traore staying, if the price is right sell him, he was found this last season. Plus he doesn't seem keen on signing a new contract.


7.) 08 Jul 2021 11:29:37
Blimey, Madman, you don't half put inflated prices on our cast offs. If only! I think it was pretty obvious that Boly didn't fully recover from C.V. so hopefully he'll be back to his commanding self next season. Apart from Neto who may not return this year, Adama is our only fit player who can make a difference by running with the ball to effect. I wouldn't want to lose that option personally.


8.) 08 Jul 2021 12:58:35
Blimey Old Wulf, you've forgotten Trincao after only 4 days and Podence too.


9.) 08 Jul 2021 14:01:38
Tell you what, if we well all those players mentioned above, and for the money quoted, we will be the richest club in the world in five-a-side football. Hang onto Kilman, he's represented England at Futsal football. He's used to the 1-3-1 format. Bruno may prefer 1-2-2 though!


10.) 08 Jul 2021 14:17:20
Interesting lads.
To be honest i'd say those fees due to age and the markets you would be selling to.
Mir had a good season in la liga ina struggling side.17m for a 23 year old seem a fair.
Cutrone aged 23 at 10m seems fair as I think he would do a job at a Torino or similar side in Serie A.
Traore 40m would be fair. He hasn't signed a new contract and I think its time to move on.
I had actually forgotten about Podence. I'll put it out there i'd sell him. He was a poor mans jota. And he hasn't hit the same dizzying heights.
We really do need to look at the balance of the squad and having a few options on our bench. Which we lacked last season.


11.) 08 Jul 2021 15:52:35
I hadn't Jas. Just that Podence is too injury prone and we've yet to see Trincao in the flesh. Let's hope that he can produce the goods but I reckon he'll need a fair amount of time to bed in.


12.) 09 Jul 2021 10:31:40
Siiisenor - how much are we selling Traore for if we can buy a CM and 2CBs oven ready to play in the Prem?
However I obviously agree we should hang on to Traore - our best player by far and at the moment only major attacking threat- at least until we discover if the new players cut it or, like seasons crop, fail to measure up or the injured ones can come back as they were pre injury.
However I agree with you that we need to buy at least 2 or 3 oven ready players as the squad remains v thin and signing 2 new kids plus RAN may well ( let's hope not but we don't know) not move the dial.
Odd that on here criticising certain players - Traore, Podence, Saiss etc etc is abolutely fair game - but others, who haven't delivered, as they have over the years or haven't even kicked a ball yet are viewed as messianic figures and any hint of criticism or scepticism of them or Jeff Shi is met with opprobrium.
I find it strange that our premier league status is taken so casually by so many of you and balance/ conservatism is so poorly received.


13.) 09 Jul 2021 12:07:58
I agree Future is old gold.
The issue we face though is we took a gamble on Boly, Saiss, Raul to name a few that were senior players and they all came off.
The 'experienced heads' some fans especially older fans by an large want cost far to much and we have struggled during our success to convince them to sign (whether that's Nuno or what we offered contractually the jury is out) . We also struggle with our location as shown in the reports of the Zinchenko and Franck Kessie negotiations as both players were notsold on Wolverhampton.
If you look at Citys success they have brought players aged between 18-26 normally english players younger to avoid the price increase such as Stones and they have kept tabs on the likes of Laporte and Ruben Dias to purchase as cheap as possible. To think laporte cost less than Raul. And Dias cost nearly 30m less than Maguire.


14.) 09 Jul 2021 15:10:08
As usual Madman despite your name you write a v sensible and good post ( as was the one above re Coutinho) .
Wolverhampton is no Vienna and yes our wages are among the lowest in the Prem so its not easy.
But for the money spent last year I showed in an earlier post what we could have got, (others did), and many of them were experienced pros. But agreed it is not easy as everyone wants what we obviously want hence Burnley quoting £40m+ for Tarkowski
ps everyone put that value into mind when valuing Traore.


 

 

16 Jan 2021 23:55:03
So what is going on? Five points from 27 since Raul was injured. Rumours that Nuno is being touted for other jobs by Mendez. No new striker coming in, only Cutrone and Gibbs-White recalled. It doesn't make any sense unless there is trouble behind the scenes.
Todays substitutions were bizarre, Neves was Wolves best player and Coady deserves better even though he conceded the second penalty. Why 4,3,3 when 3,5,2 has worked so well?
Has Nuno fallen out with his key players? It seems he might have before. Someone needs to get a grip otherwise I see a relegation battle coming. All does not look good.

Mikebayleaf

1.) 17 Jan 2021 09:06:01
Fans like you make me laugh. Neves our best player i'm glad this is only a opinion, he was terrible gave the ball away got caught in possession numerous times he bottled it. As for captain coady making a challenge like that after seeing boly do it his criminal, nuno has been to loyal to coady ever since playing for England he's been full of mistakes. Our back 4 don't throw there body's on the line, I saw atleast 3 times yday albion defenders do this. We are terrible at the moment.


2.) 17 Jan 2021 10:16:10
In my opinion we have to go to a back 3 we know it works, as for bringing back cutrone and mgw it only added numbers not quality and that needs addressing,
Last summer's transfer policy has failed. forsun have to accept that will happen from time to time and be bold enough to fix it
Let's hope a cup win next week can lift the gloom and restore confidence, . It's not a time for trying new stuff, go back to what we do best.


3.) 17 Jan 2021 10:27:54
Laugh away! You have chosen to only respond to the point you disagree vwith in relation to the WBA game, not the wider issue. Try widening your horizons and you might make a positive contribution sometime.


4.) 17 Jan 2021 10:34:38
Our best player yesterday was Boly.
I still can't believe we lost-68% possession and most of that in their half!
2 penalties and a flooky looping header.
Oh1 and a penalty denied for us!


5.) 17 Jan 2021 13:15:46
Pedrowolf. we will lose Friday in the fa cup as you well know. writing is on the wall as with yesterday.


6.) 17 Jan 2021 14:07:04
I hope your wrong nigelT .
Surely we can defend against half a dozen plumbers etc
And ruddy will no doubt be in goal.


7.) 17 Jan 2021 14:24:37
Still lose. lost in 1986 and will lose again.


8.) 17 Jan 2021 15:42:26
Nigel we won't lose to Chorley, if that was to happen Nuno would be out of a job, let's get behind the team and we can go on a good cup run, we all now what's wrong and we start again Friday and have to improve, with respect to these clubs we cannot repeat defensive mistakes like we did against the rubbish, Brighton and Burnley with the money we have spent.
Positives out the game thought Silva is getting better each game and getting a bit more physical, took is goal well.
Also would like to now how we didn't get penalty against rubbish for the hand ball can somebody tell me.


9.) 17 Jan 2021 15:59:09
Looking at the stats this season were top of penalties conceded and bottom of penalties awarded
It's not helping us.


10.) 18 Jan 2021 12:19:27
No surprise on the penalty stats. You need to have possession in the opponents box to get penalties and we just don’t have that. Adama and Neto should be attacking the box constantly with their footwork yet they attack the corners and make a cross that no one will receive.


11.) 18 Jan 2021 13:06:45
Totally agree Stourbridge. Traore and Neto need to play much closer to centre and attack the box instead of playing on their own in no mans land and keep wasting opportunities. Semedo also doesn’t get into the box enough. Hoever did try to do this when he played and looks a good long term prospect and Johnny Otto will when he gets back.


12.) 18 Jan 2021 13:32:10
Stourbridge being saying that for ages!
Even with Jimenez and sometimes Doherty in there it was a inefficient strategy. Now with no one or just - in the words of Glenn Hoddle, "he doesn't head the ball" - Fabio Silva it is a complete waste of time as demonstrated by the fact we don't score from those crosses.


13.) 18 Jan 2021 14:24:36
Pedro - good posts.


14.) 18 Jan 2021 23:01:23
Cheers, on Fabio hopefully he will live up to his price tag, but right now we need a proven striker come on fosun help us out we're obviously struggling.

27 Jul 2022 14:46:23
Any suggestions for a new striker now Jiminez is out for a couple of months. My favourite would be a swap deal Traore for Kane - go to it Jeff!

Mikebayleaf

1.) 27 Jul 2022 15:04:30
Let's hope they've got a recall clause on Silva, but frankly, I doubt it.


2.) 27 Jul 2022 15:30:13
Ronaldo looking for a move, a little loan to help. Lol more like we'll be playing dendonker up front.


3.) 27 Jul 2022 15:33:04
I'd test the water with a £35m bid for Ivan Toney (maybe throw in a youngster we don't want like Jordao to sweeten the deal). Admittedly they are unlikely to want to sell but you never know unless you try ?


4.) 27 Jul 2022 18:06:04
I agree with you on Toney bully, I think he'd fit right in with the system at the golden palace, I even think dzeko would be a good fit for a season, but I expect we will be served a curveball of a signing.


 

 

20 Jul 2022 11:55:48
Benteke - bonkers!

Mikebayleaf

1.) 20 Jul 2022 13:52:46
Sport witless have said Wolves have no interest in Benteke, it was a rumour made up and the usual clickbaiters fell for it.


 

 

13 Jun 2022 20:24:53
So what happened with Marquinos, either he had a pre contract agreement or he didn't, it would seem the latter so what does that say for transfer competence?

Mikebayleaf

1.) 13 Jun 2022 21:11:32
Not our fault the guy and/or his agent goes back on an agreement which he definitely had or we wouldn't be looking to take it to arbitration (this one will go to court unless Arsenal pay us off - which I doubt).


2.) 13 Jun 2022 21:33:15
If Arsenal had any sense they'd tear up the contract also we'd tell him to shove it too we don't players like that.


3.) 14 Jun 2022 12:01:26
When you read the article it's fairly clear, they wanted a nominal fee (£3m) for him and clearly offered him to Arsenal who paid it. We tried to be clever and not pay it and guess where he's gone?! However you dress this up then yes Mike it seems that yet again we have failed to get the player over the line. We can talk about legal action all we want cause Arsenal have nicked a wonder kid from under our noses and the likely few quid compo they will pay to make it go away is not nearly as valuable as the player! So disspointing ?


4.) 14 Jun 2022 16:12:19
Agree BuulyBoy, they were trying to get him for free. In today's market 3mil is chicken feed, not even a gamble. Now dragging their feet over Palhinha no doubt he will soon be snapped up by our rivals. I think next season could be a hard slog.


 

 

13 Feb 2022 15:58:26
Moutino successor Luke Cundle!

Mikebayleaf

1.) 13 Feb 2022 16:09:32
I didn’t get to watch the match Mike, did Cundle play well?


2.) 13 Feb 2022 16:19:24
The while team played well. One major positive we can take from today is the options we had on the bench. Trincao, Silva and Hwang came on leaving Marcal, Jonny and Chiquinho unused. Neto, Mosquera, Boly and Moutinho to return in the coming weeks too.


3.) 13 Feb 2022 16:43:13
Excellent team performance they all worked so hard. Cundle had a game to be very proud of. Shows what a team playing as team can do. A very "Three Musketeers" show!
Hope you got to see it Phil and that you are OK! Been thinking about you pal, take care of yourself.


4.) 13 Feb 2022 16:51:32
I didn't get to see the match,was working. So can't say if we played well and deserved it,but beating spurs away tells me we must AV.
Will watch on motd later
I honestly hope this result,give Phil the boost he deserves
Let's hear from you mate ?


5.) 13 Feb 2022 17:14:12
96% pass completion for Cundle today what a player he is going to be almost got an assist too.


6.) 13 Feb 2022 17:30:56
Plenty of MOTM candidates there but Kilman (again) and Dendonker deserve special praise. Also another stella effort from the Wolves away fans, an all round Pack performance.
Another result like that against Arsenal and we're up there.


7.) 13 Feb 2022 18:15:42
And to think we have Neto to come back aswell.
Top four an outside possibility if we can string a run of results together.
Also,cundle didn't look out of place today, even though I expect us to strengthen the midfield in the summer he is a strong addition to the first team squad now and today's showing proves he deserves Bruno's trust.


8.) 14 Feb 2022 10:10:16
An outside chance yes bigcheese but let's take it game by game. The next 3 games are vital, particularly the Arsenal one on the 24th. If Arsenal beat us and Spurs which are there 2 outstanding games they will be pushing Chelsea for 3rd, consequently 4th will be a really tall order. However we need points from Leicester and West Ham first to stand any chance.


 

 

23 Jan 2022 18:39:40
So Traore to Spurs is not yet a done deal. If it happens my prediction is that it will not last long. Yes Conte converted Victor Moses to a wing back for a season but where is he now. I'd be careful Adama the extra dollar may be ther but it maybe very short lived, you ain't the star that your ego suggests.

Mikebayleaf

1.) 24 Jan 2022 08:46:27
Totally agree Mikebayleaf just like Doherty and Nuno for that matter, just not a good fit. It makes you wonder if Traore is waiting for a Barcelona response, as it's dragging on a bit.
Still from now on I'm taking a leaf out of Phil's book and avoiding further comment (or a least try to) on transfers as they are beyond my control or influence.


2.) 24 Jan 2022 10:57:03
Yes, many fans like you and me agree.
It’s just a case of wait and see!


3.) 24 Jan 2022 11:55:16
The suspense regarding Traore is ratcheting up. The longer it drags on, surely the less likely it is that he will leave? It seems common ground that any funds for new players will come from the sale of Traore. But, no point in agreeing a sale at the last minute, leaving us unable to bring a new player or players in.


4.) 24 Jan 2022 14:32:24
Deep throat. That's precisely what fosun will do. Leave it till the last minute so there is no opportunity to spend it on new signings. Cynical I know, but it's beginning to look that way.


5.) 24 Jan 2022 15:23:30
It’s taking as long as some VAR decisions, perhaps they’ve sent someone to have a long hard look at a screen.


6.) 24 Jan 2022 21:26:56
Just watched the U23s beat sunderlund 2-1. Chinquinho starting. As you would imagine a cold cold night in the North East may of been abit bewildering for the lad and the surface not what he's accustomed to, but he's certainly got some speed and tricks in the bag. His vision and awareness are excellent, abit too good for his team mates at times. He had a couple of scoring chances but was abit 'rabbit in headlights' and took a touch to many.

Sadly he went off midway through 2nd period, either twisted his ankle or was caught (ref awarded nothing) in the pen area as he was again in scoring position. He looks a good acquisition to me, not ready to start in prem yet,but with acclimatise he's got a lot of promise. Cundle impressed and Samuel's little cameo towards the end could give us something to aim for up front, I'm thinking Samuels/fabio (dougan/richards), ah, drifting in off in nostalgia! Seriously we've got some decent lads in the U23 to add to our returning injured list. If adama is to go get him out hopefully get sanchez and I'm sure we can push on. Come on sort the traore fiasco ASAP.


7.) 25 Jan 2022 11:00:34
Abbey wish I'd seen the game sounds interesting. Sounds like it will be a while before he's ready for the first team. Though I don't think he's expected to be just yet. Cundle appears to be a good prospect though!
Having watched Chelsea v Spurs I think if Conte expects Adama to be the answer to his problems he's asking the wrong question! I think all round we have a better first team than Spurs.


8.) 25 Jan 2022 13:23:34
Proof Ken68. Could you envisage Adama replacing Semedo as RWB now or anytime?


9.) 25 Jan 2022 16:56:49
Sevlow if Conte can turn Adama into a right wingback then he will be able to confirm the right to be one of the best coaches in the world!
If he goes I'll still miss him though. Love to watch him play good or bad, never boring!

If, as rumoured Raphina goes to Barca, there will be a gilt edged vacancy for Adama at Leeds. Take advantage of it, he's not as important as he thinks.

Trouble is Osorio will be another one for the future and they never seem to be given a first team chance. There must be something badly wrong with the succession of younsters at the Mol. Even Kilman had to wait until 24/25 and I doubt he would have had his chance if NES had stayed.

Wolves said that they wanted to bring in young players withhigh potential but in order for that strategy to succeed the youngsters need to be given opportunity. Where has this been delivered, MGW? Connor Ronan? Sanderson? Hoever? Cutrone ( I accept he was a major mistake)? and what about Fabio Silva - will he turn out to be another big disaster? What does this say to Chinquino, Luke Cundle et al. I've missed a bundle of other opporunities. What is wrong with WW succession planning when there is no succession?

MGW rather sounds like Pogba's bro. Peas in a pod.

Well I hope Lage's got it right with 4 at the back because if it doesn't work well I doubt he'll be forgiven for pushing Coady out.

I agree, great performance but I couldn't believe the Norweigan display, no press and leaving the flanks wide open time and time again. Even when they ran two ranks of defence and midfield they were wide open. Credit to the Lionesses but Norway was appalling.

Seems to me it's all about three things, the transfer fee, the wages and Champions League football. Be prepared to be disappointed over Palinha.

It's all in the name OxleyMoorRon. A dose of positivity may be a cure.
