From wolves official website as everyone has probably seen Ryan Giles joins Cardiff City on loan.
Hoping he does well under Mick Macarthy and Terry connor.
With our home grown always want them to succeed you never know a fantastic season at Cardiff and we could have a decent player in the making.
All you can do is keep an eye on his progress and hope he makes the headlines in the championship.
Good luck at Cardiff Ryan Giles.

Sounds like a good move. Also see that Sanderson might go to Birmingham - hopefully after signing a new contract.
ps Phil started my new career and got paid for my first job!

2.) 13 Jul 2021 20:49:26
Agree on Sanderson Thefutureisoldgold.
Thats great to hear mate hope all goes well for you and long may you earn merit and enjoy all that you achieve.
Things are a lot better today from looking back 12/ 18 months ago.
Lol except our league position which can only be better this season coming.

3.) 13 Jul 2021 21:12:40
Think you are correct. Although we aren't out of the woods yet we are def on the right track.
Lets hope Wolves are as well. Interesting article in E and S by Bully talking about the need for experience partic at CM and CB.
Glad i'm not the only one beating that drum.
Re Job its great fun, outdoors and quite physical - i'd work for nothing but its great picking up a few quid as well.
Sadly the job is by its nature a zero hours contract and thus v sporadic. You only work when you are wanted, mainly eves and weekends, but it looks like there might be a bit this summer (weather permitting! )

4.) 13 Jul 2021 21:17:18
If Sanderson goes to Birmingham my work colleagues are Birmingham fans and one of them is a true running through his blood bluenose he will give me a regular accessment of Sanderson.
I will be watching the championship on Channel Quest Sunday mornings after MOTD.
For Giles and maybe Sanderson.

5.) 13 Jul 2021 21:26:50
future, congrats on the job hope you enjoy it. Before all this C.V. thing arrived I worked a couple of days a week delivering cars all over the place. Great fun in retirement I thought, not for everyone but I miss it so much. Can't do it anymore anyway sadly! .
By the way the ad my son did streaking turned out to be for Danish tv. Quite funny. He's in a new series starting on ITV2 on Friday night called "Apocalypse Wow" sadly he wears a mask all the time, he's the referee. Mind you it's a reality thing at least it's deniable in the future if anyone asks. He got decent money and you need to start somewhere! I might manage the first one with luck!

6.) 13 Jul 2021 21:28:32
I agree with you we need experienced players.
I just feeling chilled at present as there is still 4 weeks or so till the season starts.
But after a couple weeks if we haven't signed a ready made quality first team signing I will start getting itchy.

7.) 13 Jul 2021 22:23:32
Ryan Giles to Cardiff is a fantastic move, for him, and the wolves. Cardiff is a team that will be fighting for promotion this year and will get loads of minutes since Macarthy pushed for this loan to happen. Sanderson to Birmingham would be a great move as well. Also rumors that our young gk Sarkic is currently training with Birmingham and could go out on loan there the next few days.

ken - will take a peak at "Apocalypse wow". If he is working he is doing well. Fingers crossed for him.

10.) 14 Jul 2021 15:48:19
future, don't blame me! He did say I would probably not enjoy it! The main thing is he had fun and got paid. He's also done his first film, small part obviously, gets murdered. Called "Jeepers Creepers III" out December I think. He also said I just won't want to see it either! As long as he gets paid and is happy I'm not concerned.

11.) 14 Jul 2021 16:15:01
Well Ken that's just made me more intrigued. It sounds as if he is starting to get some momentum. Work begets work.
Isn't the Jeepers Creepers horror film franchise quite well known?
Agreeed if they are working and happy you can't ask for more really.
At the monent my youngest graduated this year and is unemployed, my boy has 2 zero hours job and only contracted work for saturday and sundays and my eldest although fully employed is def not happy with much at all including job!

12.) 14 Jul 2021 17:54:41
future. I'd hate to be starting out now its very tough out there for them. Our eldest is a teacher also in London. He teaches sport which he loves. Whilst the youngest is getting work he still works nights as well which is tough so any film work he gets makes for very long hours. As a parent you just try to do your best, wherever they are you worry. At least we do anyway!

13.) 15 Jul 2021 18:49:59
Ken - As usual you are abolutely correct. When we, the wife and I, were starting out in the early 1980s we got jobs easily once we left education and those jobs, even though to start with mine was relatively poorly paid, allowed us to buy a place almost immediately. Now you fear that even a good job like a teacher will probably not enable you to buy a place - particularly in London - for several years, indeed if ever if you are doing it on your own.

14.) 15 Jul 2021 22:24:09
future when we first got married in the late 70's we got 100 percent mortgage on a bungalow in Warwick 11k scared the life put of us!

My eldest son teacher partner a nurse in London, zero chance of buying. Not like London needs them is it, not even any priority on council homes. The rent they pay scares the life out of me!

15.) 16 Jul 2021 13:19:58
Wow -11k. Suspect that is less than the annual rent of a flat in most parts of London today.
My eldest daughter, who has an MA in a relevant subject from a good uni, works for a charity in London and is paid peanuts. Her partner is a garden designer who is trying to make his way independently - so prob earns less than peanuts but works all hours god sends.
For them to buy a flat in south London you are lookng at circa £450-500k.
Never ever going to happen unless we, their respective parents, bankroll them but for me with 3 that's a big big ask!
Without being political their is clearly a link here: rent returns are v high relative to interest rates and with some tax breaks still in place for buy to let landlords - which aren't for actual home owners - it is not surprising that they can always outbid young owner occupiers and keep prices high.
Plus if you are paying an obscene rent how do you ever save to get on that first rung without help from parents.
Once you are away it is a virtuous circle hence Robbie Fowler allegedly has hundreds of properties - the surplus rent forming the deposit for the next few properties and ever onwards.
Bizare that the current government has not fully closed the tax loophole as it is clearly a solid and rationale reason why youngsters in London for example largely vote labour - you can't be a capitalist without capital ie a house!
oops that sounded like politics - sorry!

16.) 16 Jul 2021 14:16:19
future you are quite right. London needs young people! Those in power do little to help, part of the problem I think. Don't see any party offering any help. My eldest, the place they have is nothing special and they pay around 1700. You could get a palace for that anywhere else! Salaries don't really reflect housing costs tbh. They get paid a bit more but nowhere near enough. All they do is get by. Sad really.

17.) 16 Jul 2021 15:15:17
Ken - indeed however WFH might change all that. My daughter could live in Gloucester and buy a nice house for the price of a v small flat in London and if she can wfh and only go in once or twice a month why not?
Prices are crazy in London but as you say wages - outside of the city- are little different. Teacher's feeble London waiting being a good example and they can't WFH really.
Fortunately we are retired -well I am - and the wife works within walking distance of the house so life for us is easy- just the worry as you said for the kids.
I left home at 17 and frankly my parents were shot of me in all but name. Today I suspect we will be supporting/ looking out for our kids for most of our lives!
Goodness knows who is going to look after us though when we get old - I spend a fair bit of time and money looking after my aged mother these days. Not sure my kids will be in any position to return that favour!
oh well it could be a lot lot worse so no point in moaning!

18.) 16 Jul 2021 18:06:32
future I must admit I don't wish myself on my two! I saw my parents deal with parents and my brother and I with my Mum. Though I our case it was mainly my brother as he has been a Bachelor all his life. He owns and lives on a narrowboat now. Whilst I love visiting him I couldn't live on one. Not in winter anyway, not sure he will in a few years!



13 Jun 2021 20:36:29
What's happened to all the posts?


{Ed002's Note - They take them down and paint them in the summer.}

1.) 14 Jun 2021 09:18:45
Ed02 reminds me of my army days being sent to the stores for a tin of white paint to paint the last post 😁
So many rumours about Wolves players leaving and Nuno raiding the squad for Everton ( if he does actually go there)
Obviously uncertainty during this transition and the Euros making things linger on.
I think that everyone is just waiting to see what the plan is.
The press speculation is, of course, unsettling.
Nowt we can do as supporters but just put trust in the new coach and the executives who run the club.

2.) 14 Jun 2021 11:21:46
Its called good weather it gets people off phones and computers, about as rare in England as England winning an opening match in a tournament!

3.) 14 Jun 2021 11:45:05
Exref how can you say the club is in transition. We got no players they all being sold. Are fosun getting their money back before they sell the club.

4.) 14 Jun 2021 12:07:08
I meant the posts which had been posted yesterday and taken off.

{Ed001's Note - someone pointed out something that shouldn't have been posted by a poster who should have been deleted and I couldn't edit just his without it making a mess. I forget who did so or I would be thanking them for spotting it.}

5.) 14 Jun 2021 12:54:17
Phil : “what’s happened to all the posts” - Would imagine most fans are preparing for the next batch of disappointment, which after three fantastic seasons started just about this time last year, they’ve already stepped it up a notch and they’ve hardly started yet.

6.) 14 Jun 2021 13:04:07
Demon, if you're a Wolves fan, don't be so dramatic. The club is obviously in transition. So far not a single player has been sold, but some will go and some new will come in. So what? If you're not a Wolves fan, that explains everything.

7.) 14 Jun 2021 13:07:44
You've been rumbled demon. Christ, you must be bored? Has WBA found their new manager yet?

8.) 14 Jun 2021 13:19:01
Thnks Ed001 I realised now why the posts had gone.

Oxley I see perfectly clear what you are saying.

demon I'm hoping/ praying your gut feeling is wrong.

Arddunby can't argue with what you say.

9.) 14 Jun 2021 18:06:37
Ah Demon the light of these pages so positive he is.

10.) 14 Jun 2021 18:50:57
Deep Throat mate Demon isn't a Wolves fan he has been rumbled by a few on here now.



19 Apr 2021 10:51:25
No rumours floating about?


1.) 19 Apr 2021 11:26:10
Most likely be linking Nuno to the vacant Spurs job. Same when Arsenal sacked Unai Emery. Could the allure of working with Matt Doherty again be too strong for Nuno to resist? :)

2.) 19 Apr 2021 13:45:01
Nice 1 Debbie,
I wonder if the man up the tree in Compton will be there this summer?
Nuno to spurs won't happen imo.

3.) 19 Apr 2021 17:32:40
They won't go for Nuno as they want a manager who will bring exciting attacking football. Mourinho was all about shape and solidity and, let's face it, so is Nuno.

4.) 19 Apr 2021 18:07:35
If Spurs were not happy with Mourinho and his 1.6875 goals scored per match, Nuno's record is well behind with exactly one goal per match, plus a much worse goals conceded record. However, I'm very grateful to have Nuno at Wolves but I recognise that his tactics are very negative. Nuno to Spurs? Not a chance.

5.) 20 Apr 2021 13:39:42
If Nuno goes to Spurs will he want to send Doc back to us?



08 Apr 2021 09:32:45
Reading that Boly and Saiss will be missing next year for a month in the delayed African cup of nations, Nuno is talking about that so to me that clearly shows 1 his intentions are not to walk away and 2 fosun aren't getting rid.

The plan with nuno as head coach will remain I can't see anything different.

My view of course.


1.) 08 Apr 2021 12:55:17
Hey Phil, I'm hoping your assumption is correct! this 'Nuno out! " is a lot of BS. A list of speculated managers with availability did not fill me with confidence at all. Nuno is learning on the job to a degree - I'm hoping this season's mistakes are learnt from and addressed.

Nuno for me has been a breath of fresh air not only to Wolves but to the PL - such a humble guy, doesn't make anything about him it's always about the collective, not the individual.

I did have a moan about his "we must find solutions" comment, but that is/ was born out of frustration and defensive issues not being addressed.

2.) 08 Apr 2021 14:05:45
Agree with both of you Phil and Debbie. To a degree Nuno is a victim of his own success in previous seasons raising expectations that after 2 seasons in the Premier League we deserve to be a top 6 club.

It's a season of transition hit by some bad luck and peculiar circumstances, with a couple of signings not working out as hoped. Find me a manager or a club who have a 100% success rate with transfers. I don't like to criticise the board as they have invested a lot, but it has to be in our minds that before Nuno they did appoint Zenga and Lambert. If they did get rid of Nuno whoever comes in could end up taking the club backwards - the fans don't get to choose the manager.

Nuno deserves time with the fans in the ground backing the team and I really hope he is given it.

3.) 08 Apr 2021 14:17:42
Hey Debbie your posts I read and enjoy everyone of them and never have ever thought you are a non believer in fosun and nuno.
I do agree it's a learning process.
I'm sure we will have our day and look back in time to the bad old days of the c. v. and this poor season.
Alex you the same a believer like debbie and myself.

4.) 08 Apr 2021 14:53:11
Nuno also in discussion with other Prem managers re pre season friendlies.

5.) 08 Apr 2021 16:27:21
Thanks Phil. I like to hope I offer balanced, realistic optimism.

6.) 08 Apr 2021 16:46:39
Alex I can't fault any of your posts no worries should you have in my opinion.
The internet can be head doing on social sites, I personally only use this site no other,
I find this site with all the posters enjoyable.
Hope long may you mate.
Come on you wolves let's stuff Fulham tomorrow night and we all have an extra happy weekend.

7.) 08 Apr 2021 17:04:12
Look back through history and all managers have signed players that haven't worked out and I looked at this jose guy and thought yeah he'll do me but I was wrong. I looked at the kid silva and thought no no no. but I've changed my mind on him cus he's going to be a gud un. My mates a red and he says solskaer was just the same . And look what a player he turned out to be. there was also a guy we signed from bpa and I remember fans saying this guy ain't got it. a certain kenny hibbit thought otherwise. Nuno has probably learned a lesson this season and I really can't see him giving up or making the same mistakes and if he goes it will be the sack cus think what you want but he loves this club and unless we want a Bruce or allardyce down here then let's get behind him. Cus we am wolves ay we.

8.) 08 Apr 2021 17:47:59
Lexluna, People say we need an attacking midfielder. I mentioned the 5 or 6 that Nuno has had access to but apparently doesn't like or trust or DOESN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH.
Add to that the strikers that he didn't like who have a lot of potential.
Add to that that he doesn't know what to do with Traore and will sell him so we forget that Nuno doesn't know how to change his system to adapt to anything that wasn't in the book he read about coaching counter-attacking football.

Nuno is TOO inflexible and set in his ways to adapt to coaching attacking possession based football.

Plus he has his favourites who are mostly from Portugal.

9.) 08 Apr 2021 17:49:19
Debbie, how much confidence did you have when Nuno was appointed and why? I'd never heard of him.

10.) 08 Apr 2021 19:06:06
I have been watching Wolves since the 70's under Nuno I have enjoyed the best polished skilful exciting football I have ever seen at the Mol.

Troubled waters, yep, oddest season ever yep.

Nuno gets my vote of confidence, he's earned it, I would not judge any manager on this season would be madness.

11.) 08 Apr 2021 21:39:37
Timmy T, you must live in a cocoon. Manager of two of Europe's biggest clubs (Porto and Valencia) and you'd never heard of him?

12.) 10 Apr 2021 08:31:38
Alex is right we got 7th after promotion and when we got 7th again people were saying he has to go

This season has been hard especially with the injuries but we could still have about 50 points at the end

Nuno does his best and I like his style and which PL manager who would come to us would we want instead?



25 Aug 2020 13:30:03
So it's official MGW season long loan at Swansea.
Reading Jeff shi the club have full faith in him as our best academy product.
Hoping he does well and comes back next season as Jeff says stronger and better.


1.) 25 Aug 2020 15:36:45
The new contract for MGW is confirmation that Nuno has not lost faith in him. It's all up to MGW now to play his way back to Wolves next year. I wonder if the loan has a recall clause?

2.) 25 Aug 2020 16:51:05
Exactly what he needs, Nuno clearly has faith in him, it's up to MGW to perform on the pitch. Hopefully, it works out for all parties.

3.) 25 Aug 2020 17:28:28
Nuno likes to work with a small squad: 3 goalkeepers and 15 outfield players. Given this it looks likely that serial ‘bench-warmers’ will be moved out, either on loan or permanently. This would result in a match day squad in which he had total confidence. Exits are likely to be: MGW already confirmed, Bennett, Burr, Jordao, Miranda, Campana and Kilman. May be other exits but that will be because offer is too good to reject. As for in-comings - experience has shown that we won’t know those until they are done and dusted. However I am sure they will be players who will enhance that match day squad.

4.) 25 Aug 2020 19:01:38
I expect this to be Jordao's breakthrough season. On balance I think Nuno prefers a middle three that supports two forwards. Squad currently seems weighted towards three forwards. Jordao looks like the number ten who can provide real attacking support.

5.) 25 Aug 2020 20:51:05
Hope you are right regarding Jordao. Whomsoever is in the match day squads need to have time on the pitch. Unfair on those who sit there week in week out and watch substitutions being the same two or three, irrespective of player coming off. The ability of three or four players to play in a number of positions allows Nuno to stick to those three familiar substitutions. This results in the also rains coming into games with no minutes in the tank. This happened in some Euro games, and it was hardly a surprise when they didn’t hit the ground running.
I think some players suffered more than others from lack of minutes: Neto was underplayed and subsequently didn’t really push on from an excellent start. Probably also suffered from us adopting a more defence minded approach in the second half of the season. Was this change necessitated by our punishing schedule. No Europa League next season, so hopefully a more progressive style, especially if all squad members are to be trusted with time on the pitch.

6.) 26 Aug 2020 09:48:51
Absolutely right what you are saying Ecosse. But I think there were a couple of other factors affecting us last season. Firstly the poor start, which meant extra pressure on each game. Secondly the fact that our two signings Cutrone and Vallejo looking way out of their depth when playing convinced Nuno that new signings needed longer to learn the Wolves way before playing and they were just lost opportunities to expand the squad. Our cup draws were quickly against prem opposition, so when he did experiment against Villa we were knocked out. And finally the awful injuries to Jordao and Shabani within ten minutes of each other took out the two leading young players who could extend our squad.

Very true tfig. How could I have overlooked that? But it's the old gold they'll be wearing I hope.
I hope things are looking brighter for you too tfig. It's been a trying time I know but I hope the problems are easing .

7.) 16 Sep 2021 16:30:33
I’m glad to see mgw getting some game time, doubt he would have had as much with us. If he had stayed fit the season he was with Swansea I think things would be different. Best thing for him IMO, get a full season at a lower level to gain confidence.

8.) 16 Sep 2021 19:07:45
Abbey - many many tks. Driving down to mums again on Friday and next Tuesday but otherwise keeping busy which is great. My walking business is exploding doing 3 this week including some American tourists flying in for a holiday this weekend and who had heard of me via friends of someone in England who did the walk with me a month or so ago!
Having said that after buying lunch and sharing a few pints with the guys I walked with on Wednesday I was all of £20 up for the whole day but it great fun and certainly a relief from caring for my son, (which I know sounds awful but it is very intense), which I was doing on Mon and Tuesday.
Re Footie and taking Oxley's point maybe MGW will come back and be the extra CM we need in Jan?

9.) 16 Sep 2021 20:06:08
Tfig I know how these things are, I don't know if you saw my post to you from a while ago but I and went through a period when I tried to manage it all and found myself reliant on alcohol, I'm out of it now and teetotal but it nearly killed me. Please don't over do it or be too proud to ask for help. It's not failing its being sensible. I've just had 3rd jab due to other conditions, very quick I know but the surgery had pfeiser they needed to use fast. Last year watching wolves on every media I could kept me going and I hope it brings some relief to you too. Back to MGW, I was baffled when they let him go on loan but can now see how he'll benefit us because of it. We've been looking the threat and now it's down to putting it in the net. Hwang looks the poacher in the box we've been missing and if jiminez traore trincao can find form well be flying. Looking forward to Brentford and the next adventure. Take care tfig and COYW.

10.) 16 Sep 2021 21:50:26
Really appreciate Abbey and you don't have to worry about me and drink as I have never been any more than a social drinker - in fact I sneaked in a pint of tap water with the lads I was walking with on Wednesday at lunch time rather than trying to match them.

I am also incredibly lucky to have an amazing wife who helps, (no more than helps), to carry the load - 40th anniversary next year!

Really hopeful on MGW and whilst v early days on Hwang and even Trincao early signs are promising.

The big one obviously is getting Jimenez back to full fitness/ form if he does hit his previous heights you are right we will be fine. If Neto also returns to his best in the New Year well we will have an enviable problem as to who to pick!

Once again though many tks for your thoughts!



13 Sep 2021 07:45:16
Not one u23 on the bench Saturday with podence mosqurie (sorry spelling) and boly back from injury.

Neto to come back we are looking good and healthy.


1.) 13 Sep 2021 08:17:21
Good point Phil, also Jordao nearing fitness and should be available soon.

2.) 13 Sep 2021 10:25:00
Phil - excellent point.
When Neto is back we will have 5 wide players for 2 places: Traore, Neto, Trincao, Podence and Hwang
When Otto is back we will have 3 for 1 LWB :Otto, Marcal and RAN
With Yerson ( easier to spell! ) and Boly back we have 4CBs for 2 places and Yerson is a RCB!
So certain parts of the squad are looking solid with options.
Maybe sign a CM and a CF in Jan and if all are fit and flying we will be ok. (If i'm being picky Coady continues to look of the pace a bit for me so maybe a back up for him as well in case he continues to struggle although I do think he will be fine when the whole side changes up a gear)
On a much more postive note Jimenez had his best game of the year so far especially defensively - he makes such a difference to our set piece defence as he is probably one of the best headers of the ball we have. When he is truly back to his best, (offensviely he is still not getting to/ challenging for balls he previously would have), him and Traore (who I actually thought had his worst game of the year so far - although he was still M of M for Sky) are going to tear it up again.
ps Going to be controversial I think the widespread criticism of Semedo for missing chances misses the point that he has got there to miss them- keep doing that and they will go in. If we weren't making chances i'd be more worried. [NB Doherty did put them away and many hated him! ] Semedo is fine, but as usual, now that he has been here a while, some are bored with him and he is no longer the "Messiah" that he was suppossedly going to be. That ludicrous expectation is being placed on the next big thing Silva, Trincao, Hwang, Yerson or more probably someone with 5 substitute appearances in adult football in some minor European League, that we didn't actually sign.
As I have said before I don't understand why we don't support our genuinely good players - of which we have several - rather than dismissing them in favour of some fantasy player that doesn't actually exist.
As you have said before I guess its all a matter of opinions.

3.) 13 Sep 2021 10:39:16
With the expected additions in January after the long summer window of uncertainty on new signings with our nearly fit squad it looks more promising, but only one win so far in the league it will as always come down to winning matches.
At present all is good because of our win Saturday the pressure back on to get all 3 points against Brentford which for me is the thrill of being a football fan.
Like a few have posted shooting practice on one on ones needs to he addressed, but confident it will come.

4.) 13 Sep 2021 11:01:50
2 more players I had missed out,
Longmynd Jordao.
Thefutureisoldgold jonny onto.

So for my thinking it's now even more better than I thought at first in my first post.

Nice 1 guys ?.

TFIOG like I posted a couple of days ago some of the finishing issues can hopefully be worked on in training. Frankly that's seems to be the main issue at the moment.

6.) 13 Sep 2021 12:44:44
Arddunby - of coure you are absolutely correct and I am sure we are working on it and hopefully also the shooting form the edge of the box from pull backs to player like Neves and Moutinho which is currently awful. We will also be working on getting even better - it has improved under Lage- at getting bodies into the box so that Traore - who admittedly does run v fast and so is hard to keep up with - has someone other than Jimenez to cross to.
BUT we are making chances and are looking good in possesion and going forwards so I'm reasonably relaxed that the goals will come.
It is perhaps though unfair to expect all the players to have that magical skill of calm composed finishing that separates the great goal scorers such as Muller or Greaves or our own John Richards from even very good footballers who don't play up front. I therefore doubt Semedo or Neves or Moutinho are ever going to bang in 20 goals a season.
They do however in my view and hopefully most fan's view contribute massively elsewhere?

7.) 13 Sep 2021 13:33:52
TFIOG mate it seems every season some fans need a scapegoat, last season it was Dendonker, the season before it was Doherty, this season it seems to be Semedo.
You have hit the nail on the head mate.

8.) 13 Sep 2021 14:39:51
Funny how no one seems to mention marcel who, I personally think, as been fantastic so far. Yes he and seiss have been slipped a couple of times but no body is perfect. Some players don't dazzle and excite (traore MoM? ) but just get on with the work. Anyway as I've said before the transfer disappointments don't seem such a loss given the squad we've retained and will be coming back. I believed all along the first 3 games would be nil pointers and then we'd get going, beating Watford was the first expected victory, Brentford at home should be the second with goals finally going in, I hope so. Wolves are exciting again, I belive we can give anyone a game again.

9.) 13 Sep 2021 14:46:09
All those players are good players when have they let us down?

Some fans just love to hate :- (.

10.) 13 Sep 2021 15:57:02
Why is it good to have no U23 players on the bench and none in the team?

11.) 13 Sep 2021 17:09:13
Abbey - v good point! Marcal is very solid and gives a bit more going forwards than perhaps we give him credit.
ps I have also defended Saiss on here regularly as he is another one that seems to attract criticisim despite being a true pro who gives his all every week. He may not ever be confused for Franz Beckenbauer, (sp? ) (or even Conor Coady) but he does a good job for the team!
Oxley several of the players are under 23 years in age but I think what Phil was saying, ( please for give me if wrong Phil), is that the players we have now are experienced first team ready/ quality players, (in the team and on the bench), not youngsters merely making up numbers but not really ready to play yet?

12.) 13 Sep 2021 17:17:39
Having an u23 in the first team is the best outcome for the club but for this to happen when we have a fully fit or 3 players shy of a full squad the u23 player has to be an absolute world class gem.
We haven't got an u23 player who is better than the 20 squad players for Saturdays match at Watford.
It was the strongest 20 man squad we have had for ages.
When the 3 players are back fit there will be 3 first team players not in the matchday squad.
With the disappointment from a lot on here with the transfer window how well Lage has got the team playing I thought it would be of nice reading.
That was my reason for posting what I did.

With podence back when he came on he made a difference pure quality composure with skill and cross in lead up to our second goal.
Just one player who is light years ahead of our u23 players in that position podence plays.
I get u23's players need to have a chance to prove themselves maybe in the cup agaisnt spurs we will see some u23's.

13.) 13 Sep 2021 17:22:40
Good shout on marcel Abbey,
It's no coincidence that we look and have been better in defence.
Kilman has been a standout for me this season.
If kilman plays the same consistently you could say what arsenal paid £50million for (Ben white) we have just as good for peanuts.

14.) 13 Sep 2021 17:54:28
Spot on Thefutureisoldgold,
Your post wasn't on my screen when I posted above.

15.) 13 Sep 2021 18:27:37
Re podence,
I'm aware podence made his comeback at Nottingham forest and saw him come on as sub agaisnt man utd but you get my jizt on posts above.

16.) 14 Sep 2021 08:28:12
Podence is a little nugget of a player, bring him on and the opposition don't know what to expect. I just hope he can now stay injury free.

17.) 14 Sep 2021 10:39:22
Phil789 ; see your point about our younger players but it really doesn’t show the academy in a very good light, when are they going to produce a Premier League player? Any player who’s going to make it in the top flight is ready long before they reach the age of 23. Top Clubs in the Prem loan their youngsters to lesser Clubs in the Prem, why don’t we ever take one or two? Do we think we’re too big to do that? Aren’t Chelsea, City and Utd youngsters good enough for our squad but they’re good enough to play against us?

18.) 14 Sep 2021 11:19:32
Kilman MGW the ones come through of any to date with a big significance.
MGW being the one who was with us from a young kid.
Kilman was bought for the u23's

What I see is there is only a handful who will make the squad what happens to the rest?
We have high hopes for sarkic' sanderson and now MGW out on loan aswell as Giles ronan and the others I can not remember.
I think the academy it's primary goal us to produce 1st team premier league players so in that respect I agree to a degree with you.
But the majority of academy players aren't going to make our 1st team and so imo the academy is producing the standard of players who will be profitable championship level at best or minor European leagues.

On a plus side Bruno Lage from. reports suggest he likes to give the youth a chance so hopefully in the future we will see a gem come through.

19.) 14 Sep 2021 11:30:07
Ps I would like to think also when we sell academy players like ottasowie to safe guard we will have a sell on percentage fee of any future move.

20.) 14 Sep 2021 11:58:28
Phil when I look at Perry and cundle as you point out sanderson and MGW more to the point Kilman we're creating players who can and will progress. Loaning out will help the development but you can't always throw youngsters into a prem situation. I personally don't like weakened teams for cup games. It's OK if you've got the talent on your books otherwise warming seats for big bucks but if lower div teams draw a big club their fans deserve to see the players, and pit themselves against the best. Or flip the coin and teams who've played with weakened teams have to stick with their choice all the way and not present 1st choices in semi and final. That's me and I know there are many reasons why they don't or won't. I think it demeans our domestic trophies and the achievement of winning them.

Oooooh bully bully

Yes yes yes.

3.) 11 Sep 2021 17:38:42
Nice one Tatton.
This kid doesn’t Hwang around on scoring on his debut.
Ooh Bully Bully!

4.) 11 Sep 2021 17:55:28
Sir tatton I do doff my hateth to thy humour. Now scoring after 69 attempts we can look forward to some goal fests, Brentford won't be looking forward to next week's visit. And noticing absent from the start sheet of boly dendonker fabio mosquito podence (neto and otto) its more reassuring after the transfer disappointment. We've got what could be a good run of fixtures to Xmas.

5.) 11 Sep 2021 18:21:05
Love it guys, love it
I'm so ☺ just like you.
I know I shouldn't, but I'm going to do the final anagram from me anyway (sorry)
Phil's comment
Get in hwang
Can't wait to walk past the STS next week on our way to the game, always brings back very happy memories.
In Bruno we trust.
Enjoy one and all

6.) 11 Sep 2021 18:54:12
Abbeywolf, absolutely agree with you 100%,
All looking great with points before Christmas, and added bonus Chelsea are winning. ??.

7.) 11 Sep 2021 22:12:46
Someone this season is going to get battered by us at least 5 nil.



11 Sep 2021 06:59:51
Good win for Birmingham last night another clean sheet for Sarkic'
No minutes for Dion Sanderson.
Another reason we need to win today (which I'm confident we will) is the blue noses at work will be scawking Monday after their win last night.



1.) 11 Sep 2021 08:02:50
I think we may have to be patient today phil. I can see us taking it 3-1 with Watford scoring first, dunno why really just a gut feeling.

2.) 11 Sep 2021 08:24:00
I got everything crossed we start taking our chances.
We need to be ruthless show no mercy in front of goal.
Would like to think today our first win and first clean sheet.
But 1-3 win if offered right now I would bite your hand off.


3.) 11 Sep 2021 11:29:28
Phil 3points however they come will do. If we don't win today the serious moaners will be out. Wearing our white 3rd shirts today, we lost at Wembley v Watford in white, did we wear them again when we beat them away just after?

4.) 11 Sep 2021 12:23:55
I can not remember Abbey mate,

5.) 11 Sep 2021 12:50:00
Ah well, I'm not superstitious. Fingers crossed.

6.) 11 Sep 2021 17:11:29
Yes yes yes Abbey mate we finally win could should of been more but don't care delighted I am is an understatement.

7.) 11 Sep 2021 17:13:33
Sorry Abbey I didn't read your post about beating Watford in white properly I do remember.
Your superstitious came in.



10 Sep 2021 06:30:05
Morning Ed001,
What's your thoughts on this season?
Liverpool prospects I forget his name but you have a new kid from the ranks I watched him he looks fantastic.
Where as a neutral do you think wolves will end up?

Do you think man u will win something having signed Ronaldo?

All is good down my end lol??.


{Ed001's Note - I think Wolves look a midtable team to me, I can't see you struggling against relegation, but you lack the clinical finisher to push higher up. Fingers crossed Jiminez gets back to his best, but I don't think you can rely on him any more.

Harvey Elliott I am sure you must mean, brilliant young prospect who I love. Liverpool signed him a season after losing the Champions League final to Madrid, and the lad also had a lot of other options, including Madrid, who took him to the Bernabeu for a tour. Elliott is a big Liverpool fan and Madrid asked him if he wanted to meet Sergio Ramos. Elliott was like god no, he hurt Salah, I don't want to meet him!

Man Utd have the team to challenge for trophies but the manager to challenge for midtable mediocrity, so it is going to be difficult for them. With Ronaldo there, you would have to fancy they have a chance of a cup regardless of Ole.

Glad you are good mate. Always good to see you about.}

1.) 10 Sep 2021 08:16:00
Brill Ed yes it was Harvey Elliot the money Chelsea man City and man utd spent its real good business with Harvey Elliot imo.

Thnks Ed lol I didn't ask how you were as I assume you are alright as you the gaffer and lol have to be but do hope you well as always.
I'm looking forward to the weekend of football after the week at work.
The close season always tough as you want the footy back.
All the best mate?.

{Ed001's Note - don't worry mate I am in great health these days. I hate the international windows, so boring!!! It is not proper footie that.}

MGW scored a better and an assist on his debut for Sheffield United.
A great start for the lad.

I think sanches most or more likely than botman as I think Lille will put botman price up.
But anything can happen from now till January.
Regarding MGW I like him as a player but he desperately needs playing time hence his loan move. The club clearly rate him as an asset as he signed a long term deal before going to Sheffield United on loan.
Hoping MGW stays injury free and has a good season.

How I go about my thinking is our club try everything in their power to get the right players they think (through a huge up to date state of the art process) will improve us.
Last summer we may of well had players coming in but didn't materialize through no fault of our club.
It been said since promotion the area of players we are looking for is a very narrow and small area.
I think the club has been looking for a quality c/ b for the the last 2 or 3 transfer windows this to me shows how difficult it is to bring in players.
Re Silva it may be a bad buy to certain fans but I imagine an excellent well thought out smart buy by fosun.
I don't know and I respect every fans opinion but since fosun all the players who we have seen playing for wolves has been something I have never witnessed so I trust fosun as I don't know or understand how it is behind the scenes for our 10 year plan.
I think the club is always looking for quality first team players and I personally think we need 1 or 2 but if we don't I will still have faith in the club that they are doing their upmost to make us better.
I think quality players available are all on the clubs list of targets.
I hope quality players will want to join us and our project.
We wait and see in eager inticiptation.
