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”.

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
Good point.

2.) 15 Feb 2020 16:21:40
I hadn't thought of that.

3.) 15 Feb 2020 20:00:11
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!



02 Oct 2019 19:51:55
Rob Edwards has left the Club to work for the FA who’s next?

Hopefully negative fans who slate players.

2.) 03 Oct 2019 19:28:19
Negative, there’s a word we could apply to the Manager, his tactics and the players this season.

3.) 03 Oct 2019 19:56:24
We've won our last 2 games. Long may Nunos negative tactics continue.

4.) 03 Oct 2019 20:24:02
Make that 3.

5.) 04 Oct 2019 08:07:24
Unbeaten in four.

6.) 04 Oct 2019 09:35:14
Brilliant win hope that shuts a few up, turning the corner.

7.) 04 Oct 2019 14:06:27
Great result, Nuno got it right but surely we can’t be expected to watch that type of football at Molineux, we have to start on the front foot and give forwards a reason to be on the pitch, Raul’s beginning to show signs of frustration, making runs then seeing the ball played back into our own half. Just want to see us play like the home team at home, ten behind the ball is for games like Sunday (and maybe at Anfield) .

8.) 04 Oct 2019 14:24:09
He got his tactics spot on I think, knock it around the back, try to silence the crowd, that didn't really work, subs worked at tonight, changed the game, very good away performance, tight at the back, nicked a goal.

9.) 10 Oct 2019 18:35:31
Nuno negative? I think a few fans are. Seventh in the PL last season, in Europe this season. Just beat the reigning PL Champions. Other clubs want to poach Nuno. If this is negative, keep it up, I love it.



12 Aug 2019 17:22:21
The Premier League will regret sterilising the game in this Country, if you can’t celebrate a goal after a quick glance at the ref and his assistant with the flag, then we might as well all watch on TV. The Premier League should play no part in ruining the greatest spectator sport in the World.

Oxley Moor Ron

1.) 12 Aug 2019 19:17:01
Agree 100%.

VAR is 100% correct but at the same time totally, completely and utterly wrong.

To paraphrase an old Morecambe and Wise story : VAR - the box they buried football in.

{Ed001's Note - it is not 100% correct, there were at least 2 goals I saw scored at the weekend that it should have disallowed for fouls in the build up but they only looked at the offside. It was meant to be used to check for fouls missed in the build up.}

2.) 12 Aug 2019 20:41:34
VAR might be taking enjoyment out of the game. But many people have been complaining about referee decisions for a very long time.

It wasn't VAR that cost us the goal so much as the new rule about handball. Without VAR, a vigilant ref would still have disallowed that goal. Although last season it would have stood.

Let's be honest, we wouldn't have wanted an illegal goal to have stood if it was against us.

3.) 13 Aug 2019 12:48:37
But var missed the blatant shirt pull on Boly though, pic in sightings.

4.) 13 Aug 2019 15:04:44
Yes, it still isn't perfect. Or rather the dude watching it isn't.

5.) 13 Aug 2019 19:42:07
Complaining about referees is part of the game. and they love it, makes them important, VAR”s trying to make ‘em redundant.

6.) 13 Aug 2019 20:09:45
Especially if that dude is Jon Moss! And guess who's got the Man U gig? I don't think I can take all this nonsense this season! And aren't they ( the proper refs) supposed to watch it on a tv monitor before getting it completely wrong?

7.) 14 Aug 2019 23:46:43
Dude watching it was Jon Moss, guess who’s reffing our game against Man Utd.



15 Feb 2019 14:43:52
Hope Nuno’s treating Sunday’s game seriously and doesn’t make unforced changes, no second chances this time, extra time and penalties. Just go and get the job done and try to stay on our bench!

Oxley Moor Ron

1.) 15 Feb 2019 21:23:58
I fear there will be lots of changes again!

2.) 15 Feb 2019 20:58:02
Haha yes that's right about Nuno.

Apart from Ruddy and probably Saiss and Traore I think he will start with the usual 11

I see Guardiola is saying Newport are a strong team and it will be a tough match because they are better in some areas he's already making excuses not like Nuno who just gets on with the job.

3.) 16 Feb 2019 14:09:15
I query if Pep is making excuses at all. First if all I think he is playing mind games in complimenting the opposition. It makes them better disposed to the visitors. Secondly he is motivating his players so that they don't under-rate Newport. Man City will probably win 5-0.

4.) 16 Feb 2019 18:12:55
Maybe but Nuno doesn't do that either not publicly anyway.

VAR has smiled on us the last couple of games, it’s great to get ten points from twelve but being honest Leeds could easily have scored at least five times. Although Netto and Traore look dangerous every time they’re on the ball, both seem to make wrong decisions time after time, both are playing as individuals, both had the option of playing the ball to Jose for tap ins but decided to go it alone, if the front three start passing to each other they might even score a few goals between them.

Oxley Moor Ron

1.) 20 Feb 2021 12:27:21
Agree up to a point, OMR. But both Adama and Neto are, to me, luxury players! What if Neto had crossed against Saints? Adama on left, Podence on right and Neto central is the way forward. As for Marcal, he averages 20 games per season throughout career, good job we have an abundance of LWBs. FWAW!

2.) 20 Feb 2021 12:33:02
Fair points Oxley.

3.) 20 Feb 2021 21:23:32
Oxley, fair points I'd agree. I can think of a few old school strikers that would have been going ape at not getting the pass to score! Jose is getting himself in good positions and is doing a decent job. He's holding the ball and bringing others into play. He's not fully up to the pace of our league yet but maybe that will come. I think people are being a bit harsh tbh. If you take the main goal scorer out of any team in the prem only a few have a top player on the bench. Silva when he came on did ok but he still has a lot to learn imo. Next season with a proper pre season I think we will see better from all our players. As for Semedo I think he's a class player and will get even better than he is now.



12 Feb 2021 13:48:08
Southampton seem to have mastered the art of the “accidental follow through” leaving our youngsters hobbling most of the game, classic case of men against boys, doubtless if we use the same tactics there’ll be a stronger ref and VAR to contend with.

Oxley Moor Ron

1.) 12 Feb 2021 20:16:14
I noticed this as well, Ward Prowse seems to be the new Paul Scholes! At one point in the first half he put his studs through four different players in the space of ten mins! Did he get booked for a single one of them, did he heck! Three of them were even free kicks and still no card, I despair when it comes to officiating these days! 😳.

2.) 12 Feb 2021 20:43:34
Guys I agree and pointed out this anomaly - 2 on Silva and Vitor around the 33rd minutes in particular were both v bad fouls certainly worthy of a card - in my ratings post on Thursday.



11 Feb 2021 19:33:07
We’ve had the vax, we’re immune from disappointment, now sixty-one years in a row we’ve been knocked out of the cup so we can’t say we’re surprised.

3.) 11 Feb 2021 21:00:04
As usual Rated buddy I think we are on the same page with this. We've both spent our time on here (like others) defending Nuno and calling for calm but I'm afraid there's no defending the indefendable! No matter how it was intended that selection was an insult to the fans tonight! I honestly don't think he would have had the stones to do that if we'd had a sold out stadium for it. Doesn't excuse it mind, last season we were playing multiple games in a week and he laughed at the notion of resting players! What's changed?! Bizarrely he looked genuinely shocked/ upset in the post match. Who does he think we are to be putting out a second string in the biggest domestic cup we play in and still expect to win?! The club claims to have ambition and then do that with one of the only chances we had for some silverware?! I'm not having it, like you Rated I'm a bit done with it now. Even Hoddle said it, that selection just felt like a massive slap in the face for the fans to be honest! 😡.



03 Feb 2021 14:06:52
Arteta should’ve left Luiz at home, he might have known he’d go to pieces with Raul watching on from the stands and a fellow Brazilian he couldn’t handle on the pitch.

Oxley Moor Ron

1.) 03 Feb 2021 14:20:04
I don't think the ref sent Luiz off for last night's foul, it was for the assault on Raul at the Emirates.

2.) 03 Feb 2021 16:07:50
Raul probably has a voodoo doll called Luiz, dressed in an Arsenal shirt. The curse worked! Karma. Pity there wasn't fans in the stadium. Luiz would have been given a raucous farewell.



01 Feb 2021 23:54:35
No offers for any of our first team squad, probably because other Clubs can’t work out what positions they’play.

Jas; Didn't suggest any Mendes involvement, it's been widely reported for at least twelve months that Sociedad have been trying to move the player on and his agent who seems to be Nick Arcuri has been trying to get him a move to the Prem Man U, Spurs and Newcastle were linked (mainly by said agent) and he made it happen. which is his job but doesn't mean the player is happy to be here or wanted the move or indeed that he was the player or even the type of player that Nuno wanted. seems as if it's a move orchestrated by administrators and agents with little or no consultation with the "Head Coach".
That's all I was saying.

That’s what happens when you let agents decide who to sign and who to sell, uninterested players who don’t want to be here and players who are just passing through on their way to the big Clubs, one or ‘em even managed to sell Doherty to a Club who’s Manager doesn’t rate him very highly. could do worse than buy him back, sure Nuno didn’t want to lose him.

Toms Tatters : A “clash of heads” is an accidental coming together when two (or more) players are actually challenging for the ball, a player who runs ten yards directly at an opponent arrives after the ball is headed away not only endangering opponents but even himself is at the very least “reckless”and needs to be looked by the “powers that be”, Luiz needs taking out of the game for a few games for the safety of himself and others.

Unplayable - that’s obviously what Nuno thinks, looks like a repeat of the Jota situation, we’ll have to settle for watching our World - beaters on TV playing for the “big Clubs”.

Adama will probably be sold in January for a fraction of what he was valued at when he was a regular in the team, everyone was quick to praise Nuno for turning him into “a player”, an exiting attacking player at that, but then he decided there’s no place in his ultra defensive team formation so keeps him on the bench, moved on from last season when Jota, Traore and Raul were frightening defences up and down the Country, moved on in the wrong direction though, sell Jota (and Doc) leave Traiore out and leave one of the best centre forwards in World football struggling up front on his own, you couldn’t make it up, wonder if Nuno did, wouldn’t have thought destroying your own team would be part of the long term project.

Should be an interesting game, City like to pass the ball and have the opposition chase the ball, whereas we insist on playing without the ball, giving it away as quick as possible, seeing how long we can keep it in our own half and working out the best route back to Patricio. Did think though with our pacy wide men maybe catch them on the break, which seems to be plan “A” / “B” etc then I saw a stat that says Wolves have scored two goals from “counter attacks” this season. Anything less than a Southampton (9) will be a result then we can look forward to watching Diogo playing against us. The Beer in Wolverhampton might be “Unspoilt by progress” but our football team certainly isn’t.

Two of the front three are just playing for themselves, don’t pass to each other and don’t even acknowledge the Centre Forward is there, Doog, Richards, Gray, Bully, Mutch, Kelly, Ebanks-Blake, Miller, Griffiths, Sturridge and the likes don’t know how lucky they were when the ball used to come in the box, Jose wouldn’t be waiting for his first goal if Waggy or Robbie D was alongside him.

Never understand why a shot that comes back off the goal frame is considered to be a shot off target and when it rebounds in off the ‘keeper it’s an own goal with nobody getting an assist, surely it’s all part of the attempt on goal and should be credited to the attacking player, some goalkeepers stats are going to look ridiculous at the end of their careers.

Oxley Moor Ron

{Ed001's Note - that's a very good point. I do think it should be considered as a shot off target, but a missed shot that someone else slides in is credited as an assist to the guy who shot, so why is that not treated the same?} Become a Patron!
