Just seeing Andreas Weimann is on the Derby County retained list?
Another twist to add to the "we haven't a clue what is going on" saga!

No real lose in my opinion like I've said before how many hard working non goal scoring forwards does one club want?


2.) 15 May 2017 14:16:03
What is going on this started Friday morning we heard nothing since r some fans making this up or what.


3.) 15 May 2017 14:29:48
Weimann won't be released by Derby as we have an option to purchase him. If they released him he would be a free agent and we could sign him for zilch, instead of circa £1.5mil in the option agreement.

Whoever comes in needs to be quick about it. How can he assess the squad? It's taken PL 6 months and now the season is over! I'm not a huge fan but he's not the worst! I also think Jeff Shi was told from above as he thought PL was staying and even said so 2 weeks ago. I expect he will get pissed off with all this as no one will believe anything he says anymore! Basically, it's has become a farse! 👎😥⚽️.


5.) 15 May 2017 15:14:24
Thanks DT. that makes sense.
Though it does suggest no deal at this stage.


6.) 15 May 2017 16:13:46
Hope I am wrong but this is looking like another day with no news from the club. This is so unfair on the fans. What is going on? 🤔.


7.) 15 May 2017 16:38:24
What do we think about or know about Fosun? They are wealthy and have business acumen, however, NO football business acumen, 4 managers in 10 months, tell that tale! Expecting a new manager to come in, assess the team who are on holiday and decide what players he wants to keep, who he wants to buy and release in the next 2.5 months seems like a tall order to me. Will he be the quality manager we all want, and how long will he last? These I think are all valid questions given what we have come to know about Fosun. I think Jeff Shi gets told one thing and then another by his reverred leaders! Meaning he says one thing one minute and another the next, so no one will believe a word he says moving forward in or out of the club. That's not a tenable position all by itself is it? No credibility. Anyone coming to the club will have to look at, and consider all this crap before signing on the dotted line won't they? The future looks bleak from where I'm standing. I want to be wrong and hope I am. They, Fosun, are in the last chance saloon I think. If we're not careful we will hear people comparing us to the venkies at Blackburn. This is fast turning into a Nightmare me thinks. 👎.

If Lambert goes it's a Godsend we are lucky Blackburn and Wigan have been worse than us this season. Us beating Liverpool was the highlight of our season and this papered over cracks and problems. Bring in Karanka / Silva!

Tim Spiers reports Jeff Shi is back in the country and at today's game. Meetings will be held about January recruitment next week.

Please let these be led by Lambert!

Now 1-3 Fulham. please sack Thelwell tonight!


2.) 10 Dec 2016 16:57:40
4-4. Seems Lambert can motivate at half time. Need to sort the defence out as a matter of urgency and then get the entire team to play for the full 90 minutes.


3.) 10 Dec 2016 18:52:34
Poor midfield and once again'defence, whole spine of the team needs to be reworked in january.
2 centre backs and a midfielder with some bite and authority needed as a minimum.


4.) 10 Dec 2016 19:08:11
He put out the strongest team available not a good confidence boost for Burgoyne though at least we had Cav and Saiss on from the start Lambert seems to think like the fans with team selection.


5.) 10 Dec 2016 20:40:25
Seen goals on sky sports, what an exciting match fair play to Wolves from coming from 3-1 down to 4-3 up then Fulham equalise
In injury time due to bad defending again and although Fulhams earlier goals were taken well it was still bad defending on our part by giving them to much room.
The chances we missed were unbelievable how Dicho and Cavilaro missed I will never know they were easier to score I counted 4 chances watching highlights but what an entertaining game of football which is credit to the team and Paul Lambert.
Has to sort defence out but Lambert will now that on today's evidence, they have had to many chances to prove there selves but unfortunately they are not good enough although they try there hardest.


6.) 11 Dec 2016 01:43:31
Jeff Shi is back with Andy Pan. vice president of Fosun. not to happy with Thelwell I am told.


7.) 11 Dec 2016 07:42:56
Felix. hope they sack him on Monday! He is the architect of our squad compilation. a waste of space!


8.) 11 Dec 2016 10:14:12
Therwell is the only constant left of the rot. Get rid of him and get a proper football person in.

Our team is so poor at ball retention its unbelievable, teams are coming down the Mol and we make them look like Barcelona.
once we reverted to direct play yesterday we immediately got our rewards. Until he gets a defence that can defend and midfielders who can pass then he has to stick to 442 and play direct.


9.) 12 Dec 2016 08:37:40
The whole spine of the team needs addressing. Two quality defenders at the back, at least one commanding Thorobreds in the middle and two quality strikers, then maybe we can start to edge forward. 😉.

Just seen a photo on a twitter account (Rob Dorsett, I think of Sky) of Adama Traore at #wwfc training ground.
So must be close to an announcement.
I know some who are dubious about this signing. just a couple of reassuring facts:
1. When in Premiership in 2016 (20 yo) he was measured as the 7th fastest player
2. Last year, when dribbling, beat 269 opponents. next best was only 130!
Also despite not many goals, plenty of Assists in the last couple of seasons.
I think it is another brilliant bit of business by Nuno!

Absolutely spot on Rugeley. Great signing, we all know it's done but cmonnn Wolves, don't tease us, make it official!


2.) 08 Aug 2018 08:15:09
He has so far no end product - fact.
Pulis has highlighted it and been working on it positively.
Hopefully, Nuno and the staff can turn his potential into a match-winning player
In Nuno we trust.

Good discussion JasM!
Totally agree with you on the signings of Mosquera, Trincao, Sa and Hee Chan. all look good additions. However, signings did not address the shortage of goal-scorers and broader mid-field issues.
Like you, I do not blame the Club for selling Jota. Was not a Nuno first-choice at time of sale, Neto seen as more capable of developing further.
Club offered a very good price as Liverpool were panicking and had lost 2 other options.
So, we get good money (eventually), Player allegedly doubles his wages and Liverpool were happy. A win for everyone. Yes, Jota is scoring, who wouldn't in that team!
Nuno wanted an up-grade on Doherty. not sure we got that for the money spent. But a good sale for a player now not playing in the Premiership!
You have cheered me up on Silva's salary, would be madness to pay the money rumoured.
But back to my central theme, admitting mistakes is good, BUT why 12 months later do you fail to secure players for the areas everyone know need strengthening?
It shows we are glaringly under-performing on recruitment. We have to rely so heavily on Gestifute, God bless them, because our local set-up is so poor.
So, to say again if I were Fosun, some big changes at the top would be made.

Sorry JasM, we clearly both support our wonderful Club, but we have different perspective on the current situation.
What is concerning is there appears to be 2 factions;the manager and his team and the senior management.
Santo was frustrated with a poor transfer window last summer. Silly money spent on players who did not strengthen the squad. For example, we were desperate for more goals, couldn't rely on Raul (50% of our goals the season before) and we sold Jota and Doherty, most of the rest. We spent silly money on Silva AND according to various sites pay him £80k a week (now valued at £6m! ) .
Santo did really well when we lost Raul to keep us up.
He was let go and we bring in a manager with a reputation for attacking football.
Senior management then have a second summer window and again fail to sign goals.
It is clear from the first game, Lage delivers on a more attractive way to play. However now he is already frustrated he does not have the goal scorers in the squad thanks to the senior management.
So, who is right, 2 good managers or the Club's policy-makers?
Like many, I will passionately support the team and manager, but I will not support the incompetent CEO and Head of Football.
Hopefully neither will Fosun.

JasM, Really?!
Shi and Sellars have controlled transfer policy over the last 3 windows.
To most fans, lack of goals has been a major concern for many months.
We only managed 37 league goals last season.
Wasted valuable resources last summer and didn't bring many goals.
Not much in January and no goals signed this summer.
Villa by contrast, bought in 2 strikers at sensible prices, Brentford signed Toney etc.
So it is not about spending big, but having an efficient scouting network.
We clearly do not have such a structure. Thank God for Gestifute, otherwise we would be nowhere.
The CEO and Head of Football need replacing.

PF 0 Raul 1
If there is any criticism of the team, don't blame Santo or Lage.
It was the severely bad decision-making of Shi and Sellars in last summer's transfer window, left the Club with a poor squad incapable of scoring all last year (only 37 league goals) . Nuno did well to keep us up.
Yet another incompetent recruitment window this summer, also left us without players who can score.
Bruno is doing well to get any goals out of the current side, hopefully we will stay up.
We need to see Shi and Sellars sacked!
ps
Santo was great for us, very sad to see him clearly struggling with Levy and a group of "Big time Charlies".

Had a difficult couple of years, but highly rated. Liverpool and Barcelona were monitoring him allegedly, until his current injury.
Seems just what we want in mid-field, an "all-action" player.
If we do bring him in, low risk as a loan, but not able to play for 4-6 weeks after recent surgery.
A Lage choice at last!

Not particularly a Semedo fan, but I felt he was let down last night.
He constantly had to come in to cover forward runs through the centre from German players and that left the wing completely exposed, which the Germans exploited very well.
Thought the Portuguese lack of tactical management made an "average" German side look better than they are.

To reassure those fans feeling underwhelmed.
Tim Spiers reports that Lage met Jeff Shi a couple of weeks ago.
Apparently Lage impressed the Wolves hierarchy with a formal presentation, outlining his plans to implement an attacking brand of football and how they achieved 70+ goals in his league winning season. (very different from the style in the season just finished. 30ish we managed! ) .
Wolves did actually consider Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard as was rumoured, but Lage’s plans were way ahead.
It seems it might be a very different Wolves from here on in.
Who knows? . but here's hoping for a bright future!

Totally agree Rated RKO.
What is done is done, 4 years was a long stint by the standards of the mad environment that is Premiership football.
Look at Everton, £13m pa manager with a 4.5 years contract, dumps them after 18 months!
Let's all look forward, not back.

Jas M, your comments reflect well the situation.
Clearly things began to unravel between Nuno and Senior Management months ago.
Right or wrong, my view is Fosun wanted Nun's exit to be civilised and orderly, hence all the rumours about Nuno taking other jobs as far back as January.
My concern is not Fosun, but the local senior team. A disastrous transfer window last summer and now the handling of a replacement manager, which is making us look very silly.
If Lage is being appointed, how is it we didn't about the W.
