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.

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.

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.

Can only see that the Silva signing means Raul for another year. Good news!




13 Jul 2020 16:50:07
So now it's Ok for Man City to flout FFP. They will claim innocence and vindication but the £10m tells a different story. Cop out as usual.


1.) 13 Jul 2020 18:24:41
We expected it oh well better win the Europa League then.



17 Mar 2020 16:57:06
Oh dear the Villa owner thinks the season should be ended with Liverpool awarded the Premiership and there being no relegation. No self interest there then.


1.) 17 Mar 2020 20:53:15
Haha, that's hilarious! Talk about selective, so this season counts but just if its good for your club then?! Ok then we'll say Liverpool get the title but we get to play in the Champs League next year! I like this game! ;)



16 Feb 2020 13:55:03
The laws of football state that there is no offside offence if a player receives the ball directly from a goal kick, a corner kick, or a throw-in. How can VAR change that.
Neto took the corner to Jota who wa s judged offside. The denial of Wolves goal vs Leicester was just plain wrong surely. Am I wrong?


1.) 16 Feb 2020 14:18:56
Yes you are wrong the offside was Neto receiving the ball back coming back from a offside postion after taking the corner.

2.) 16 Feb 2020 15:29:32
Well Neto certainly wasn, t offside if you look at the video lines. Bizarre.

3.) 16 Feb 2020 16:14:44
To clarify, if a ball is pssed backwards to another player, it is not offside. Jota passed the ball backwards to Neto. Utter rubbish. I am a qualfied referee.

4.) 16 Feb 2020 16:27:22
Agreed Mike, my pal who sits next to me is a ref and said exactly that. But according to Halsey in one of the dailies, he came from a offside position so passing ball back irrelevant.
They just interpret the rule to suit don't they.

5.) 16 Feb 2020 18:56:15
Well I think that is rubbish. what is our game coming to a bunch of poser referees who think they are bigger than the game?

6.) 16 Feb 2020 19:46:55
Posers? Yes
Oh and None of them are good enough or fit enough for FIFA referees yet they can dictate what the richest league in the can and cannot do.
The fans and money men are irrelevant.

7.) 16 Feb 2020 23:03:12
The rule now is that if even if the ball is passed back to you and you are in an offside position you are offside. Neto’s heal was offside so by the letter of the law it was offside. It was actually good defending by Leicester as they all moved out together. No ref or linesman would have spotted it and as it was not a clear and obvious refereeing mistake there was no need for var to investigate and the goal should have stood.

8.) 17 Feb 2020 21:56:32
You need precision technology to spot Neto was offside by about 1cm. And it took a few minutes for VAR to work this out. How players are meant to keep to rules like this in a free flowing game is beyond me.

Us and Sheffield United suffered the most from VAR. Could be coincidence but who are the two upstart teams in the top half of the table?



31 Jan 2020 20:29:37
Wolves seem to be buying for the future, strengthening the U23 with several players both last window and this. Trouble is that apart from Neto and Kilman none seem to be coming through. Surely time to nuture the youngsters through to the first team and prove the youth policy is working.


1.) 01 Feb 2020 00:20:25
Jordao and Shabani were both signed for the U23's but stepped up to the 1st team squad until injury struck. Likewise MGW. That's 5 players so yes, the youth policy is working.

2.) 01 Feb 2020 10:43:25
I reckon Campana and Lioidice won't be far away.

Adama Traore, get rid, toxic, take the money he'll fail elsewhere. Nuno made him. if he doesn't appreciate that then get him out of the dressing room.

Really surprised Nuno's renewed I thought a Paul Tamworth/ Coven Wolf duo was nailed on. Tough luck lads overlooked again.
