Jonny's permanent signing confirmed on the official Wolves site.

Reading links to us registering an interest in Charlie Austin. Interesting one if he can stay fit - he would offer us a different dimension.

StattoWolf II

1.) 26 Jan 2019 14:11:20
If he's not good enough for Southampton, how is he good enough for us? Besides, he's never far away from a red card.

2.) 26 Jan 2019 17:32:40
“If he’s not good enough for (Insert team name) he’s not good enough for us” what a ridiculous statement. Raul Jimenez didn’t seem good enough for Benfica. Jota didn’t seem good enough for Porto. Ruddy didn’t seem good enough for Norwich. Bennett didn’t seem good enough for Norwich. Coady didn’t seem good enough for Huddersfield or Wolves at one point. Boly didn’t seem good enough for Porto. Bully didn’t seem good enough for WBA. Charlie Austin is a finisher. Given the chance he can score, I’d take him as back up to Jimenez. He’s not a fancy name but would 100% make us strong in depth, where as Bonatini surely doesn’t.

3.) 26 Jan 2019 21:48:34
Yes Stuu! This man talks sense.

4.) 27 Jan 2019 13:17:20
Whilst Austin wouldn’t be a signing to fill me with joy it is true that Nuno might be able to elicit some better times from him until the end of this season at least and until we sign better in the Summer. What is undeniable is that he would definitely be an upgrade on Bonatini- then again so would most strikers - and unquestionably we do need another central striker as back up/ competition to Jiminez.


5.) 27 Jan 2019 14:18:36
Yesterdays match proved the need for another striker is a big priority.

6.) 27 Jan 2019 19:52:41
We do need another striker without doubt proved that Saturday, Nuno will sort it out, just glad We are still in cup because with the luck we had on Saturday could go a long way.



11 Jan 2019 23:48:55
Sky Sports preview of the City match includes this: "Diogo Jota may lose his place to Ivan Cavaleiro after a below par return against the Reds. " What game were they watching?!

StattoWolf II

1.) 12 Jan 2019 10:00:38
Jota offers us something different in that he runs directly at defenders with the ball where as Cavaleiro will try to run around the defender taking the ball past them. Both are effective.

2.) 12 Jan 2019 14:10:32
I agree Jas, but for Sky to say Jota had a below par game against Liverpool is ridiculous. I was very impressed with his movement and how he attacked and drew defenders for Jimenez.

3.) 12 Jan 2019 18:09:45
Think that was said because he was subbed; fact is, he was subbed due to first game back from hamstring injury, Nuno was saving him.

4.) 12 Jan 2019 18:18:59
Nuno always subs strikers.

5.) 13 Jan 2019 09:04:04
Jota was subbed because he was just back from injury. He was great when he was on The link up with Jimenez for the first goal as sublime. What a. partnership that could be.

The more rubbish the self-appointed experts spout about Wolves, the happier I am.



31 Oct 2018 19:45:35
So we have officially agreed €18m for Rui Patricio - the amount originally agreed with de Carvalho before he got greedy. It's still an absolute steal for a keeper of his quality!

StattoWolf II

1.) 31 Oct 2018 20:35:27
Kepa - £75m, Alisson - £71m or Patricio - £18m. I think Chelsea and Liverpool were robbed.



04 Sep 2018 10:22:50
Iorfa has been added to the Premier League squad list. I assume this is going to be emergency cover for Doc if there are injuries to him or Jonny.

StattoWolf II

1.) 04 Sep 2018 15:21:43
Looks that way. He has plenty of experience now, and Doc will be injured sooner or later. We've been lucky with him the last few seasons.

He can fill in for Bennett too, now that Batth has moved out.

2.) 05 Sep 2018 21:50:42
Maybe he has demonstrated a positive attitude and a willingness to learn. This appears to be a pre-requisite for Nuno from all his players and quite rightly so. I think a few, Iorfa included, didn’t ingratiate themselves with the coach when he first arrived and he very quickly shipped them out on loan. Looks like a second chance has been granted and Iorfa may well have shown that he has learned his lesson. He has a lot of natural attributes, but has a lot to learn if he is to fulfil his early promise.
Other possibility is that we tried to move him out and there was no takers, so to keep some transfer value he has been named in the first team squad, prefer the first option but have no insider knowledge!

So, Klopp makes a comment regarding the ability of Paul Tierney and is not subject to a charge for making insulting remarks about a referee. Last season, Nuno made similar comments about Lee Mason, was charged and fined. Other than being Liverpool manager, what was the difference?

Big club bias yet again, on the face of it. I am getting well and truly fed up with it.

But, I want to make it clear that I actually agree with Klopp's comments and generally quite like the chap. This is in no way a swipe at him, but is a swipe at the one rule for the big 6 and another for the rest that is apparent at the Premier League and FA hierarchies.

Merry Christmas to all of the pack and to the Ed's who do a grand job. Here's to a better time in the new year.

StattoWolf II

{Ed047's Note - Merry Christmas to you too fella, have a great one!



18 Dec 2021 18:44:58
I am getting sick to death of the so called big 6 bias. Watching the Leeds v Arsenal game how 1) was Xhaka not booked for stopping the free kick being taken and 2) 30 seconds later how does VAR conclude that his tackle on Raphinha wasn't an ankle breaker?

Its the random application of these reviews that really infuriate fans as no 2 decisions seem to be the same and the big clubs who seem to benefit from them every time.

StattoWolf II

1.) 18 Dec 2021 18:55:37
Spot on statto,I've stated it recently,the people in football just want the top teams,winning everything,no matter what,
And MONEY,is the root of all evils,
It's about time,all footballers,were paid a working man's wage,
Then we would see who's playing for
Their love of football or the money.

2.) 18 Dec 2021 19:01:22
As i've said VAR was put in place to stop other teams from breaking into the big 6.

3.) 18 Dec 2021 20:38:20
Am I right in saying,it was originally brought in to get the goal line decision right,IE the whole ball over the line,then it went berserk from their,
As far as I'm concerned,the officials are there,to implement their take on what's correct,
Just how it should be,right or wrong,and go on all say I'm living in the past

4.) 19 Dec 2021 09:29:24
Absolutely right the about posts,but nothing will change unless we as sports fans do something ie STOP GOING TO MATCHES.
STOP CONTRIBUTING TO SKY or BT SPORTS. Make them realise we have had enough, but that won't happen because we talk a lot but do nothing. There within lies a crusade for someone with the passion (like Nigel Farage love him or loath him) I love him. Sadly I'm far to old for such a crusade but I am saddened by the decline of our game cheating by players and obviously
Encouraged by managers. And money money money for the limited few,that being selected clubs, the Premier League or the FA

5.) 19 Dec 2021 13:32:14
Got rid of SKY earlier this year Norfolk mate and honestly haven't missed it one bit, I watch the games I can't get to via Peacock or NBCsports who I find are more balanced in commentary.



11 Dec 2021 14:03:06
What a disgrace. Further evidence of big club bias when you concede a penalty by being hit in the side.

StattoWolf II

1.) 11 Dec 2021 14:34:49
Jonathan Moss should be ashamed of himself, as should Andre Marriner. Also, why wasn't Rodri sent off for blocking Ait Nouri considering he was already on a yellow card.

Wolves played well and were beaten not by Man City, but by the indecisions of the refs.



01 Jun 2021 17:08:49
Well done Conor Coady.

StattoWolf II

1.) 01 Jun 2021 17:21:53
Well done Coady.

We have an England international representing Wolverhampton wanderers in the Euros, superb. it won't be long till our new manager is here, there is however still time for Fosun to decide who they see who is best choice.
Coady in England squad for euros, well its lifted my spirits.

2.) 01 Jun 2021 17:36:21
Maguire in squad but injured we may see Coady first choice centre back.
If so and he plays to 100% his stock and value will go through the roof.
Lol that if England progress to the latter stages.

3.) 01 Jun 2021 18:28:43
Great news for Coady after his season petered out didn't think he would make the squad but Southgate knows he offers something different especially if there is three at the back.

4.) 01 Jun 2021 18:28:57
Congrats Conor, I'm convinced Phil, we will go a long long way in this tournament, now it's extra special to watch with a wolves man on show, Connors enthusiasm, is top draw. He will never give in.
Roll on our first game, England wolves forever.

5.) 01 Jun 2021 19:02:07
Sound greyleg I love your spirit I'm waiting to see how it goes for us in the euros before I'm fully full throttle like you but hoping Coady plays then I will be really really up for it.

6.) 01 Jun 2021 19:29:16
Well done skipper, truly deserved, absolute club legend! FWAW.

7.) 02 Jun 2021 00:04:56
Reckon he'll get some game time as well because with that squad selection surely we are playing 5-3-2?! Who knows he may even get to wear the armband again at some point, either way I couldn't be happier for him! Have to say though it's an odd selection (for me) . I also have to eat some humble pie, cause when Watkins went to Villa I didn't think he'd live up to the price tag. Yet I look at that team and have to admit that I think (in lieu of Greenwood) then he should have been in it! I worry (and here's a familiar tale:) with that squad we won't have a decent plan b (which Watkins could have helped with)? We definitely have some serious talent now though in that national team, semi finals minimum for me else questions have to be asked of Gareth. 🦁🦁🦁.

8.) 02 Jun 2021 09:54:31
Really glad conner has made it, he's work rate (and voice) deserves an international showcase. Having a wolves player as given that extra interest and I shall be keeping a strong eye on portugul, (Spain and even Belgium thanks to wolves players. ) Knowing who the new boss is going to be before it starts would be good too!



19 Mar 2021 20:00:56
I distinctly recall someone posting on here a year or so ago that at long last we've moved on and won't be linked or looking at the likes of Ivan Toney any more. How I chuckle at that thought now that we're being linked again!

StattoWolf II

1.) 19 Mar 2021 21:56:37
One more win needed I think. Fulham lost.

2.) 20 Mar 2021 05:56:34
Wolves have to play the bottom three teams, win those games and we'll be okay. How defeatist is that opinion?

3.) 20 Mar 2021 21:47:05
Newcastle in deep poop now.

4.) 20 Mar 2021 22:11:12
Yeah I agree that Newc look in trouble, partly because I'm not sure Bruce is as good some of the other managers down there (like say Parker) . Tell you what though going back to players I'd like to see us in for then Leandro Tossard would be on that list for me. Think he could give us a bit more of a goal scoring threat up top, he has that same relentless approach that Diogo (saddly:) showed again the other night! 👍.

5.) 21 Mar 2021 09:12:23
And Dunk.

6.) 21 Mar 2021 13:42:27
Totally agree about Trossard, definitely one I'd be looking at - can pick a pass and breaks well into the box from either deep or wide.

7.) 21 Mar 2021 20:36:46
I do like Dunk, not many better in the air either but not sure he's mobile enough for the way we play to be honest? Also not sure it would make a difference cause he's there talisman player and English so would no doubt cost an absolute fortune! I wonder who we will be in for, right now I'm not sure I'd keep any of the loans. Maybe Rayan if we can negotiate the fee down but FAR from convinced yet on the others. I honestly thought Jose would find his feet. I get that he still might but he seems to be drifting further out of games than coming further into them right now (for me)?! Time will tell 👍.

I've always seen Marcal as the solution to replace Saiss if no new CB is signed. That's why I think Giles was recalled with RANs recent injury problems.

Sanderson and Giles will likely play today in the Cup but when the league resumes I expect Marcal, Coady and Kilman to be the back 3. I am happy to see the youngsters get a go though - we've bought a lot 'for the future' players in over the last 5 years.

I think in competitive matches we'll only see Ait Nouri as a wingback or winger rather than a full back in a 4 (when/ if Lage switches to a 4) unless there's an injury to Marcal (likely though, thinking about it) because the lad cannot defend.

The defence is a concern with Mosquera and Boly injured as they seem to me at present to be first choice starters. This is where I hoped Sanderson would have got a run out for us rather than sending him out on loan because we lack balance on the right side of a 3 with all the left footers we have.

BullysBoy, I agree entirely. Otasowie did look promising and gives us something different in midfield, whilst Cutrone in his 'cameos' last season looked like a headless chicken with very little idea, albeit I wouldn't knock his effort.

I really hope not unless he is going to play as a winger because the lad simply cannot defend.

Yes Abbey, he'll be with us in January whilst there is a break in the Swiss league (the same reason Toti Gomes is coming back) and then he'll return to Grasshoppers for the remainder of the season. Therefore he won't be featuring for us this season, so isn't adding to our numbers immediately.

What a really good performance, Podence and Neves were superb today. Kilman handled Ronaldo really well. All round, what a great, front foot performance. Just need to be a bit more clinical to put matches like this to bed a lot earlier.

Whilst a lot put our lack of goals down to the injury that Raul sustained, I see another cause - the personnel change in the wingback positions. Our success under Nuno in our first two seasons stemmed from an ability to defend as a 5 but break quickly with attacking quality from the wingback. Since Jonny's injury we have not been able to replicate this down the left (RAN cannot defend and Marcal is much less attacking). On the right Semedo can be a bit suspect at the back at times and has not shown Doherty's composure in front of goal or with his delivery for the final ball.

The wingbacks are so integral to how we play at both ends of the pitch and this has had an impact on the goals scored and chances created.

Composure in front of goal is an issue as everyone knows. Traore and Trincao have none. Hwang looks promising and Raul needs to relax a little bit as although he has 3 goals since his comeback, he looks like he is snatching and trying too hard at times. Neto coming back will be crucial as he had composure.

I totally agree that he should not have been allowed to continue by the medics when he first felt it go. I don't disagree with the points about the medical team but given the nature of hamstring injuries, it didn't surprise me at all that he was going to be out until February. They aren't injuries that can (or should) be rushed.
