Bueno announced.2 today so far

Nigelt2

1.) 31 Aug 2023 18:12:35
Subject to work permit apparently but at 24 years of age, a 6ft 4" frame and can apparently play a bit, sounds like a good signing.

This is probably why the Elvedi pursuit slowed down somewhat.


2.) 31 Aug 2023 20:33:10
With Pond gone to Stockport and Dawson's age is there an arguement for taking both?
Quality players (Swiss international) at the price (circa 5m?) he is available for must be worth signing?

It must be possible that this season we will have injuries, suspensions or loss of form amongst the CBs and the extra cover for the price, over a 5 year contract it is only circa £1m and his wages, it is surely worth it?

Additionally If both he and Bueno have established themselves, (and are under long term contracts ), then we may, subject to either Dawson remaining solid or one of our younger CBs developing to become the 4th option, be able to solve the remainder of our FFP problems by selling one of them, (or perhaps more likely Kilman), at a substantial profit next year?


3.) 01 Sep 2023 08:29:24
I haven't seen anything of Elvedi but it appears he is available at a reasonable cost, so why has no any other club gone in for him?

Has Costa officially been signed?

Nigelt2

1.) 09 Sep 2022 14:35:20
Yes, squad number 29


2.) 09 Sep 2022 15:10:32
Yes but due to events yesterday the club felt it wouldn't be right to announce it at this time.


3.) 09 Sep 2022 16:39:34
Makes sense


4.) 09 Sep 2022 18:47:18
I did think that yesterday
Bit like the potter announcement was very low key


5.) 09 Sep 2022 19:39:24
Have to give the club some credit on this one, even if it doesn't work out (hopefully it will look like a master stroke come the end of the season:). They moved fast and no one can say they haven't tried to address our problems in front of goal. I worry that the extra wage will sink the Denayer move (which would be understandable) cause we are still a little light (experience wise) at cb. Fingers crossed it still happens then it will be over to you Bruno ?


6.) 10 Sep 2022 07:39:17
Apart from trying to sign Ramos I think they have done all they can.Still pinching myself about Costa joining tbh.


7.) 10 Sep 2022 10:31:37
Early in the week it looked like the Dendayer deal had stalled with the player wanting a better deal. Not sure what the current situation is.


8.) 10 Sep 2022 22:12:58
Well I'm sure Debbie will put me right

Guedes all done,medical tomoz

Nigelt2

1.) 07 Aug 2022 19:36:57
If Guedes arrives it will signal the departure of MGW. Bruno likes his inverted wingers and Guedes plays that role, where MGW has been deployed in pre-season and yesterday. Not sure it is his best position. I think he will go to Forest as Cooper is more likely to play him more centrally.
Very surprised that the talk around Coady is a year loan with an option to buy. Unless there is a hefty loan fee involved, it doesn’t make sense to me. We should be looking to get the money, while his stock is still high.
Striker is still the priority. We played quite well in parts yesterday but never really looked like scoring. Saves their keeper made were routine. Not sure how I feel about the names being banded about. Ramos is probably my preference but he is young and unproven.
Would love us to get Nunes, as he is the type of aggressive, running midfielder we desperately need. Bruno obviously doesn’t really trust Ronan or Cundle, and if Moutinho is out for a few weeks we are probably looking at two midfielders to fill the voids.


2.) 07 Aug 2022 20:01:03
I have seen little about the injury to Moutinho, does anyone know what's happened to him? thanks


3.) 07 Aug 2022 21:02:43
Personally we should play gibbs white centrally or kind of same role he was doing at Sheffield but if a bid of what there saying nearly 40mil comes then I would snap there hands off and look at another attacking options and definitely a goal scoring midfielder


4.) 07 Aug 2022 22:03:15
Don't disagree Wolfthistle/Wolvessida if an offer off £40M comes in for MGW, then sell him and put the money into Nunes. Then bring in a Striker, job done, that would then become a very good window.
Having said that it would be a shame to lose Coady but it looks like the role Nuno created for him is going as we transition to 4 at the back. Personally, I'd like him kept, but if he's not going to get game time I suppose he'll go.


5.) 07 Aug 2022 22:10:57
I still think we need 6 players Guedes excites me but the club need to provide Bruno with options on his bench.
The subs getting yesterday were Bueno, Cundle and Campbell .
I think with the signing of Guedes who I expect to be a replacement for Traore.
We still need a cb (not confident of our cbs playing as a back 2), wing back, attacking midfielder, forward and Striker.
Although why not give Traore the wages he wants sign him for 3 years and try to get our money back next year whilst strengthening our squad and bench?
Wouldnt rule out keeping Cutrone as well and get him imposing himself on the opposition as a front 3.

5 more points for safety? Thoughts?

Nigelt2

1.) 19 Feb 2024 20:50:28
I think we're ok now at 35. Can't see any of the bottom teams getting above 34


2.) 19 Feb 2024 21:03:52
Nahh. We are safe already.


3.) 20 Feb 2024 06:50:42
We on course to have our best ever premier league haul.


4.) 20 Feb 2024 09:35:16
That's a great point made regarding points total. It would be fantastic if we could dare I say it sneak into Europe by whatever route, but the higher we finish the more revenue we get, which hopefully gets reinvested to improve our squad further. Who would have predicted this one week before the start of the season.


5.) 20 Feb 2024 10:46:50
Sneaking into Europe, erm! Best route FA cup I would say. Qualification by finishing 6th or 7th seems to require Liverpool to win the League cup and Man City or Liverpool to win the FA cup, other options exist such as Man U winning the FA cup, but for that to create an extra place they would also been to finish in the top 7 to. I think!

Bring Fraser on.not Bellagarde!

Very rately will a team beat the same side3x ina ssn.looks like being a poor result.still think sara bia is all left foot.he needs replacing for nxt ssn.just 1of those games.after chelsea and utd hard for em to get up for brentford


2.) 10 Feb 2024 16:52:11
O'Neil has done well, but the defence needs a complete overhaul; been getting away with it for weeks tbh. How you can be up for it one week, then rubbish the next is unfathomable. Europe is and always was a pipe dream. Concentrate on survival.


3.) 10 Feb 2024 16:56:14
Hard to lose a game with those stats if theyr correct especially to nil


4.) 10 Feb 2024 17:09:42
Sarabia, Neto, RAN and Semedo were the only ones who looked like they cared, they were creating chances but no-one was there to be on the end of them.


5.) 10 Feb 2024 17:41:16
Sorry you Dawson lovers but he was at fault for both goals.


6.) 10 Feb 2024 18:38:51
I disagree tdbridgo. 1st goal was Sa's mistake for not grabbing that corner. But, I think the sun was in his eyes and he couldn't react quickly for it. Yes, Dawson poor pass on 2nd goal though.


7.) 11 Feb 2024 10:34:49
Agree somewhat with QS.
Imo our defence was better we wouldn't of conceded 2 sloppy goals.
Both goals due to defensive mistakes.


 

 

23 Jan 2024 07:53:00
Attendance at Brighton 41, 505.is that correct?

Nigelt2

1.) 23 Jan 2024 08:07:04
Reported on both BBC and sky but I don't think it's right?


2.) 23 Jan 2024 10:11:03
Very much doubt it.
I haven't been for a few years but when it was built and indeed even when I last visited, Van der Parra scored an equaliser for Wolves in a 1-1 draw in the Championship, I doubt it was even half that size!
The design is v clever however in that not only was it sunk into the hill side so that it fits naturally into into its surroundings but it was built with expansion in mind.
It is therefore possible that extra seats have been added with another tier placed on top of the existing stand (s)
Still highly sceptical that its capacity is anything like 40k!


3.) 23 Jan 2024 10:36:42
Their ground isn’t that big is it?


4.) 23 Jan 2024 10:58:20
31876 capacity according to Google search HTP.


5.) 23 Jan 2024 11:04:57
On sky sports site says it was 31, 584.


6.) 23 Jan 2024 12:03:13
Amex stadium capacity is 31, 800 according to Wikipedia.

Enjoyed the commentary last night from Mikey and Tommo. It was interesting to hear them joined by Tom King which gave useful insight into how the team prepare for games. Also some interesting info on the players.
I thought it was an excellent result and even though it was radio I was very impressed with Doyle and Semedo but tbh it was a good performance by the whole team. We could have so easily nicked it. Even so to get a draw and clean sheet isn't something many teams will get down there.
Anyway come on Sunday!


7.) 23 Jan 2024 13:21:45
Did King mention our light glasses? Ken. On TV they did abit on our prep and the lads were wearing frames with light shining down from a visor. The thought being that for a night game it stops the body from becoming naturally tired as daylight fades. They had them on whilst getting the pre match meal.
King as been on before and almost imparts our tactics but he's very entertaining.


8.) 23 Jan 2024 13:25:38
31, 505.they must have input it wrong and now corrected


9.) 23 Jan 2024 13:52:52
Winning at home and drawing away is non too shabby by any metric. However, Brighton are a very good side so this result is further testament to the turn around that GON has orchestrated. Very often teams rely on the quality of their players to get results, but I think what we are witnessing is a bit of both.

Yes, we have some good players but non of who were pulling up trees particularly prior to GON's arrival. To his credit he's shown them how to win and to their credit they've listened and applied his tactics on the pitch. This may have been a goal-less draw but chances were created so a win was possible, some change from our last encounter.

So are we finally seeing the recovery of Wolves back to the form and excitement and dare I say the confidence enjoyed during our time under Nuno? Yes I think we are, but my question is does Nuno and his team look like they're feeling the same at Forest? JL implied he'd been misled at Wolves as the spending reigns were tightened but Nuno now has to deal with the consequences of when they're not.


10.) 23 Jan 2024 16:06:24
Hi LongmyndWolf, I watched the Brentford V Forest Match and yes they lost so I don't expect him to be too happy, but his body language on the touch line looked all wrong. Not the same level of intensity as he had with us. I still like Nuno though and Forest could easily get relegated if they get a points deduction. I suspect Nuno will stick with Forest unlike JL who would no doubt abandon the sinking ship.


11.) 23 Jan 2024 18:12:50
You're right Blackfords losing is never fun. However, it's that body language that I've noticed of late, maybe the ffp charges have killed his pig, so to speak.

Think we need to get the Liguidator tune back at matches pre kickoff? Thoughts

Nigelt2

1.) 13 Jan 2024 13:37:16
Totally agree Nigel, why is it the boggies can still play it while chanting bad things about us, but the police stopped the Wolves from playing it because of our chanting, . unbelievable.


2.) 13 Jan 2024 15:09:34
In this day in age impossible to see it coming back.
Snowflakes these days can't say anything that is remotely affencive let alone **** off west brom the wolves.


3.) 13 Jan 2024 15:20:16
If I recall correctly it was Sir Jack who disliked it, it's not been back since for whatever reason.


4.) 13 Jan 2024 17:50:08
I personally think hi ho is more rousing prematch, but I have fond memories of old, every time I hear the liquidator.


5.) 14 Jan 2024 08:24:49
Chelsea still play it


6.) 14 Jan 2024 19:11:22
I've heard the liquidator being played at so many different clubs.it brings back good memories but I don't mind it being a memory in itself now.

It's a new era, I'd like to hear something new and perhaps a bit more original.

Nuno will be happy today

Nigelt2

1.) 26 Dec 2023 15:06:34
Yes staying up may be more difficult than was at first thought.


2.) 26 Dec 2023 15:14:33
Not sure how it makes any difference Ard, Forest were never going down with the three promoted teams this year anyway! Any team outside of those three promoted that goes down this year doesn't deserve to be in the Prem anyway!


3.) 26 Dec 2023 16:06:44
BB Luton are also in a little bit of a decent run at the moment, they are more of a concern. I'll be surprised if we don't stay up this season and as you said in a previous post, to get relegated this season will need to be pretty awful! It's just that we seem to have a knack of not doing things the straightforward way.
