Inviting offers for our Captain now, did anyone not see that coming?

Not a surprise, given CC's lack of game time in the preseason friendlies. With that said, the guy has been an absolute stalwart for Wolves over the past seven seasons, Nuno switching him to a sweeper was when CC came into his own. CC is an inspiration both on the pitch and a role model off of it. A true ambassador for Wolves.

If his time has come I wish nothing but good things for him and his family. The guy is one in a million.

Do you think there is a method to their madness?


3.) 04 Aug 2022 14:40:29
Batshuyai from Chelsea possible loan for striker.


4.) 04 Aug 2022 14:45:54
The way the club has been carrying on pre season, lack of signings and direction tbh I would not be in the least surprised to see Conor Coady start on Saturday!


5.) 04 Aug 2022 14:47:40
It's becoming a bit laughable now. I was quite optimistic that we may add some quality this window but as every day passes my excitement is quickly turning to dread. Think it may be a long tough season ahead.


6.) 04 Aug 2022 15:19:15
I see Everton have completed on Cornet at his £17.5m release fee. So that's Dwight McNiel and Cornet they've signed for a combined fee of around £30m. Ones 22 and home grown the other can play up front and scored 10 for a team that got relegated. It's frustrating that we aren't signing anyone but it's even more frustrating when Jeff keeps saying 'the moneys there we just can't find the players' well Jeff both of those players would have massively improved our options and we weren't even interested in them! Why is it everyone else can find signings yet we make out as though since Brexit the entire job of recruitment is suddenly impossible, I really am starting to lose patience with the whole situation! Same old same old, Jeff and Sellars are a shambles ?


7.) 04 Aug 2022 15:33:11
Coady is needed at club,anyone who says different has no idea


8.) 04 Aug 2022 16:13:20
west ham have signed cornet not everton


9.) 04 Aug 2022 16:14:11
Vbwolf : There’s definitely madness in their methods.


10.) 04 Aug 2022 16:32:22
No method at all in their madness, just madness all round. Any talk of getting shot of Coady beggars belief. No one player has done more for us than him in the premier. Now a few so called fans who need a scapegoat turn on him and the club use the opportunity to make a few quid. Mind you with the World Cup coming up Conor would perhaps be better with a new club than warming the bench here . To me Coady could go in midfield, his motivation is priceless.


11.) 04 Aug 2022 16:41:16
Flash- apologies you are quite right. Doesn't really change my point though. His release fee was very reasonable but still not reasonable enough for us it would seem!


12.) 04 Aug 2022 19:21:18
Spot on ray, coady ambassador for club and country, keep him at all costs,


13.) 04 Aug 2022 19:36:16
Bullys - while I rate Cornet he's a winger which surely isn't a priority at the moment so not sure we were even really looking at him, much rather we use the 17.5 million to buy a striker or two.


14.) 04 Aug 2022 19:53:22
Coady is a Wolves legend both on and off the field, as so many have said. However he is likely to be a victim of the proposed system change. Needs to be playing regularly to stay in the England squad.

Unfortunately his lack of pace means that he could not adapt to being one of two centre backs, nor could he move forward to be a sitting defensive midfielder.
A defensive midfielder is a position I think, we should be recruiting to allow Neves to impact play in the attacking areas, more than was the case in pre-season matches. One of our old targets, Edson Alvarez, would be worth considering for this role as he can also play as a CB, if we were to change mid-game to a back five.

Joined Ajax, in preference to ourselves, from a Mexican side and has flourished and grown into a class act. I know Ajax are a major European force but week in week out the Erdivese is not the standard of the Premier League. Most opt to leave Dutch football when given the option of the Premier League.


15.) 04 Aug 2022 20:26:24
Oh dear
Coady,MGW, Neves, Traore could all go before the window closes.
Maybe 2 coming in Fosun playing Russian roulette


16.) 04 Aug 2022 23:17:10
Wolf- although naturally a winger I'm pretty sure they played him up front when they were short of goals. Even as a winger he's still needed, Podence can't play a full month and with Chinquinho already out if Neto gets a serious injury then who do we have left exaclty?! We get five subs this season, right now we hardly we've have 15 full first tamers availible! ?

Looks like we’re on the verge of losing Neves to a bigger Club where he’ll fit straight in and show everyone what we already know, no doubt when he’s playing with better quality players and turns out to be the best passer of a football in the Premiership, the powers that be and a lot of fans will be left wondering why he couldn’t reach his potential at Molineux, the answer should and will be blindingly obvious.

Oxley Moor Ron

1.) 22 Jul 2021 10:05:54
In my opinion because the previous manager 'mis-used' him for the past 18 or so months. The talent is so obvious with Neves and we should be building a side around him and making him Captain.


2.) 22 Jul 2021 10:42:39
Totally agree with that, he could be world class, seems like he has been held back last two seasons under nuno.


3.) 22 Jul 2021 12:11:13
World Class? Come off it, Tibsy. That would mean he'd be selected in midfield for a world team at the World Cup. He has considerable potential yes, but not that much. He's too slow for starters and his shooting boots have gone missing. The World Class banner gets banded about too much and, to my mind, the only Premier league midfielder who fits the bill is De Bruyne.


4.) 22 Jul 2021 12:43:56
If Neves goes he goes but it must be for the right price and that money must be invested back into the squad.
Considering we beat that so called bigger club with better quality players twice last season I beg to differ on quality part.


5.) 22 Jul 2021 14:29:20
Old wulf “could be” I said, has the potential.


6.) 22 Jul 2021 14:30:48
If Neves is world-class, he's just had a pretty average season for club and country in 2020/ 21. I don't really buy the theory that he needs the best players to play with. Quite the opposite in fact, he should stand out when playing with 'inferior' players surely? His best season for us, arguably, was in the championship, playing with and against 'inferior' players. This is where his reputation was made.


7.) 22 Jul 2021 14:59:03
Id say keep but sign some players to support him in midfield.
Palhinha, Gedson Fernandes come on Jeff pull your socks up let's win those first 3 games.
Com'on me babbies. 😂😂😂.


8.) 22 Jul 2021 15:19:28
Its a shame he hasn't scored the goals we had hoped for but is still a very talented player, but as others say lacks pace. Maybe the previous manager used Ruben in the role he was best suited.

He couldn't get on the field in either role in the Euros when Fernandes and other players were withdrawn, our 30+ playmaker Moutinho was used, so that's club and country thet rate Moutinho as a better bet in that role.


9.) 22 Jul 2021 15:38:06
Signing Moutinho was Neves issue. He ran midfield in Championship, but Moutinho took over most free kicks. Neves only had a couple of shooting opportunities each game. Used too deep in premiership and Nuno shackled him. He is a World class passer of the ball, but agree he has other areas that need improving, but like I said above held up by Nuno and Moutinhi. If he stays I expect better performances under Bruno.


10.) 22 Jul 2021 19:48:57
I don't see Neves as anything like World Class. He has not performed in the last 2 seasons anything like de Bruyne or David Silva, both of whom would rank as great mfs. He shone in the Championship, had great moments in our first season in the Prem, but sadly has not fulfilled promise shown. If he was World Class he would have dominated play. I see him now as a useful squad player, but not the answer to our midfield needs.


11.) 22 Jul 2021 20:36:59
Interesting though that whilst Neves and Dendonker are training with Wolves in Marbella that neither have been part of the OR photo shoots. Certainly something is going on . Interesting times let’s hope Fosun and Lage get it right before the 14th August.


12.) 22 Jul 2021 21:41:39
Dendoncker isn't there according to E&S. He's back on Saturday after being given extended leave.


13.) 22 Jul 2021 23:01:59
Funny how Neves is getting a bit of a slating, five seasons ago we couldn't have imagined a player of his magnitude here. I believe he was being played out of position by Nuno.


14.) 23 Jul 2021 00:16:52
Debbie, totally agree with you. A few weeks ago when Nuno left, everyone was shocked and stated that Fosun would regret it but now these same fans are slating him saying that he played Neves in the wrong position and he had falling outs with players and he actually wasn't the messiah. Personally, I think Neves was looking tired last season as was most of the squad due to the sheer number of games we played in 2020 and the short break between that and the 20/ 21 season.


15.) 23 Jul 2021 09:54:58
If all the rumours are true, we won't be able to field 11 players at this rate!


16.) 23 Jul 2021 12:44:19
Neves isn't yet world class but describing him as "a useful squad player" is harsh - do you really think Man U and Arsenal would seriously be looking at a useful squad player from Wolves!

No they are looking at someone they think could be world class and will fit into their first teams now.

Wolves also wouldn't price a "useful squad player" at 50mill if they are looking to sell, so either the club rate him as more than a squad player and/ or they don't want to sell.


17.) 23 Jul 2021 15:36:41
OldWulf de Bruyne is certainly a world class midfielder but really the only one in the PL? I think Kante might disagree.


18.) 23 Jul 2021 16:00:35
Fair play, Window, when played in his proper position Kante is although he may actually disagree because I understand he's the least prima donnaish footballer around. Good on him for that. Doesn't he drive a clapped out mini?


19.) 24 Jul 2021 10:22:51
Is De Bruyne world class never won champions league nor international trophy?

World class is a special type of player that can change a teams pergormances from there performances alone. Ronaldo and Messi definitely. I'd put Chiellini and Bonucci in that category won numerous trophies with Juventus and Italy.

Id say De Bruyne, Fernandes, Hazard (in the past) had the potential to be world class. Until you have that game and performances that makes the difference you aren't world class.


20.) 24 Jul 2021 10:25:14
Add to that Wolves players had chances to show they were world class in the Fa cup semi and europa qf. So are they all good enough for the next step up to top 6,top 4,top 2, winner, champions league knock outs, champions league semis and winner?
Jurys out in my opinions. Have they reached a limit? Are we going to support them?


21.) 24 Jul 2021 16:31:00
It's a team game, Madman, and winning non domestic trophies has little relevance to determining whether a player is world class or not. If you don't think De Bruyne is world class then I'm a Dutchman.


22.) 24 Jul 2021 18:12:23
Harry Kane is another top international who has won nothing or near to nothing.


23.) 25 Jul 2021 01:17:51
My point is world class is easily bandied around.

Zidane, Ronaldo, Messi, Maradona, Roberto Carlos, Maldini, Cafu are world class. Careers show that.

Id argue Kante is very close.

De Bruyne, Fernandes, Mbappe, Kane, Sterling are all very capable players but they need the next level in my opinion.


24.) 25 Jul 2021 09:26:04
Agree Madman, but its not easy to judge current players with former players, fitness standards have improved across all sports (not just football) which is a pre-requisite to compete, no matter how good you are.

As a slight after thought I would also add that skills that were rare or innovative 50 years ago now appear far more common. This applies to many sports, a football example being Rivelinos free kick 1970 world cup against Czechoslovakia, TV experts raved about it then but now many players can bend a ball around a defensive wall.


 

 

29 Aug 2020 12:42:47
Next article listed on Sky sports website, just under the Lionel Messi stories is a feature all about a certain Matt Doherty, how well he plays his position and how he will fit in a Spurs, as jimmy Greaves (Spurs legend coincidentally) used to say “it’s a funny old game”.

Oxley Moor Ron

1.) 29 Aug 2020 12:57:53
Does it mention that Doherty himself wanted the move on the advice of his agent? Would you have a player at the club whose heart wasn't in it or would you move them on to bring someone in who is prepared to give his all for the cause?


2.) 29 Aug 2020 14:13:04
You took the words right out my Mouth, Jas, loads of people moaning about selling him but He's the one who wanted to Go.
He wasn't even a Great Defender, good at going forward but not the best at the back.
Move on to better things.
Adios Doc.


3.) 29 Aug 2020 16:25:52
The advice of his agent. Jorge Mendes who just happens to represent Mourinho and a few more Wolves players as well, wonder who’ll be next in line for a little advice, Nuno maybe?


4.) 29 Aug 2020 17:07:53
If Doherty wants to go, well and good. What’s slightly irked me is in an interview a few days ago MD said (not a direct quote but more a less) “it’s been a great ten years, here’s hoping for four or five more as ten more are unrealistic”

Not “btw I want to leave, thanks all the same” I get there are no loyalties in football, but that was a very dishonest statement to give.


5.) 29 Aug 2020 17:21:54
Oxley, I think you need to check your facts as Doherty is not represented by Mendes but by World in Motion who also represent Conor Coady and Ryan Bennett. Surely you realise that Jorge Mendes is not the only football agent.


6.) 29 Aug 2020 17:29:49
I think the Moor Ron part probably sums up Oxley.


7.) 29 Aug 2020 19:11:52
Check it out lads, stated all over the place he recently signed with Mendes.


8.) 29 Aug 2020 19:36:58
No mention of it on Gestifute list of clients but funnily enough World in Motion list Doherty as one of their clients. Lesson to be learnt here is, don't believe everything you read in the papers.


9.) 30 Aug 2020 06:18:44
I wish Matt Doc all the best don’t get many players stick with a club for 10 years spurs will get possibly a good 3/ 4 years out of him at the top of his game if we get AMN he’s got 10 at the very top at least plus like Traore and so on will be plenty of room for him to improve under Nuno plus he’s good enough anyway.


 

 

15 Feb 2020 00:38:48
Wonder why the whole of the ball has to be completely over an actual line for a goal, throw or corner but only a fraction of a player touching a non existent line super imposed on TV screens in a different county is deemed to have committed the “offence” of being offside.

Oxley Moor Ron

1.) 15 Feb 2020 09:13:10

2.) 15 Feb 2020 16:21:40

Excellent thinking Oxymoron. Doubt Mike Riley and co. Will be interested in giving us an explanation though. Us fans who keep the whole industry going with our hard earned cash are ******* nobodies as far as they are concerned!


4.) 16 Feb 2020 13:22:16
The answer is the PL have put a total incompetent in charge of our football rules. Let's face it why have they created different rules compared to the rest of the football World? Fact.
Is to hide the total incompetence of our referees? Non on FIFAs list.
Is it to do away with referees altogether so some faceless wonder can dictate to the game?
Or is it a set up to protect the Big 6 from us newly promoted TEAMS? LOOK AT THE STATS WHO HAS LOST OUT AND WHO HAS GAINED. FACT.
He who pays the piper so the saying goes
One very angry paying fan.


5.) 16 Feb 2020 14:43:59
I have lots of sympathy with all these comments. It seems typical of the FA to cock up a good idea, to make the game fairer, whereas rugby has succeeded in that aim, and there is clarity in the decision. I like Ron's point. Change the offside rule so the whole of the foot must be offside. no other body part counts. Then let the ref on the pitch decide if he needs assistance and guidance, but he decides from a full screen replay which all can see.


6.) 17 Feb 2020 10:26:10
Good point Oxley but the whole of the ball would be difficult to relate to the whole of the heel. That said, I agree with you. Apparently UEFA advised the PL against getting too forensic in offside decisions. My guess is that next season the PL will fall in line with UEFA, but too late for our disallowed goals this season.

The thought of Michael Oliver sitting in some cupboard with screens in front of him, trying to find fault with a Wolves goal is objectionable to all of us.


7.) 18 Feb 2020 17:21:20
Some very good points. Sadly, after 65 seasons of following football, The lack of brain power and common sense from the game's administrators still has a retarding effect on genuine progress. Will it change for the good in time for next season - don't hold your breath!

Why do Wolves play “secret matches” (that aren’t a secret) behind closed doors? Isn’t it traditional to play in a stadium with a crowd and show off their new strip? There’s enough stadiums locally if they didn’t want to use Molineux. Next up : The secret tour to Portugal, secret meetings with friends and family, a secret meeting with Uncle Jorge and just maybe a few secret signings

Oxley Moor Ron

1.) 11 Jul 2022 19:38:42
Because it's easier, quicker and cheaper to play at Compton than do anything on a grander scale. They've probably crammed in a couple of extra games after having to re-arrange the pre-season to run the rule over returning loanees, etc. As for the Molineux the pitch is dug up at the moment so that was out.

Got to admire the positivity some of you still have, all the people who knew what they were doing have long since left the Club, Shi took their jobs on, they have no idea who to sign, can’t even negotiate contracts with their own players, even when they did manage to sell one for a profit (Jota) they got a ten million pound player who’s just left the Club as a makeweight in the deal, the Head Coach is losing players he wants to keep and still hasn’t signed a player he wants since he’s been here, if he doesn’t leave his post before the season starts he’ll never manage another Club, it’s good some can stay positive when everything the Club has done for the last two years has been negative, Jeff really appreciates you, reaction of the Molineux faithful at the first Home game will be very interesting.


 

 

29 Jun 2022 15:45:49
Thought last season Clubs said they were going to be more transparent, involve and communicate with fans, Fosun hatched “Ask Wolves”, which consists of different employees of the Club saying what they are told, with no one actually getting to ask anything, I’m certain there’s quite a few fans and hopefully a few Billionaires who would welcome the opportunity to “Ask Wolves”.

Oxley Moor Ron

1.) 29 Jun 2022 17:01:02
Fans yes. I think there are a few questions fans should have some more clarity on especially concerning the planned redevelopment of the ground. I understand why it isn't happening at the moment, but I'm not sure many others understand it.

Billionaires no. There aren't many billionaires who aren't good businessmen and Fosun are running Wolves as a business. Most would look at the progress Fosun have made, see it as a good job so far, then see the complaints from fans and run a mile not wanting the hassle.

A billionaire fan may be interested, but I don't think Wolves have any of those. Plus fans run with their hearts and not their heads which means the decisions made aren't always the right ones.

I'm a Wolves fan through and through, but if I was a billionaire I would only buy the club to save it like Sir Jack did, otherwise I'd get fed up of the unrealistic expectations a number of the fans have and make it someone else's problem. Plus I've never liked others telling me how to spend my money :)


2.) 29 Jun 2022 20:28:29
There’s unrealistic expectations and there’s being able to have a full squad of players the so called billionaires told us to dream big and now it feels as if there back tracking we’re not asking for much 50-100 mil year on year spend on transfers in the prem unless your Norwich Burnley and Watford who coincidentally all just got relegated I wouldn’t mind we made a profit the last few windows we need it most now and nothing is happening


3.) 30 Jun 2022 11:07:30
AlexWolf : Fosun bought the Club a place in the Premier League, Nuno made progress for two seasons, they pulled the plug, Nuno left, no progress since. The Premiership is a rich man’s playground where they throw money around they’ve made from their businesses and dealings unrelated to football, Clubs that are run as a business don’t survive, not many seasons anyway, you don’t need a multi national organisation to run the Club as a business…a local corner shop owner could do that.


4.) 30 Jun 2022 12:53:26
So what exactly do you expect? Do you expect Fosun to spend for the sake of it? Do you expect them to be building for the long term? Do you believe there should be a constant trend of year on year improvement in terms of league position? Should they take the club down to the Championship and be well away from the big money?

Survival is measured in two ways. Staying in the division and staying operating. FFP is supposed to help keep clubs financially stable although we all know it has it's flaws. Almost every club in the top flight is run as a business, but with varying resources.

Would you rather take Wolves position over the past 4 years or Evertons? Very different strategies but don't correlate with the spending equals success philosophy.

Or would you rather take Wolves position over the past 5 years or Fulhams?

Gone from having to be self sufficient to laying out on a new record signing (who just happens to play in the same position as Neves) in the blink of an eye. I get more sceptical every day, my guess is if he proves himself he’ll be taking the same route as Jota, couldn’t do that deal with West Ham.

We had a team and a Manager, they didn’t want either, we didn’t need rebuilding we needed a couple of signings and faith in Nuno, his players who are still here know what happened and their best days at Wolves are history, hardly surprising Bruno can’t get a tune out of ‘em.

Two signings who they will be hoping to sell on at a profit a “goodwill gift” for season ticket holders and everyone’s happy again. Unrest within the squad is obvious, the Manager’s man management skills are questionable and the Captain of our Club who was holding it all together looks happier than he’s been for years. Just how many players will play out of position in the first home game of a new season as the system changes will be interesting, haven’t seen any of the players saying they’re looking forward to it

Would expect the same response from any player let down by his Club, expect Lage to tell Raul he’s playing without a Centre Forward when he wants to force him out of the Club, converting all his attacking wing - backs into Premier League defensive full - backs could prove quite difficult, next half a dozen games probably won’t be very entertaining but they will be interesting.
