Can Bruno Jordao or Morgan Gibbs White step up this season and provide genuine midfield competition / support for our over-worked established midfielders?

Is MGW now in Nuno's plans? he missed a lot of the season via back injury but he didn't do himself any favours going to a party in that London during the Lockdown. NES doesn't seem to tolerate insubordination.

2.) 17 Aug 2020 22:33:59
Jordao, yes. MGW no chance i'm afraid. He needs to go out on loan or prefferably sold if we can get a decent price.

3.) 17 Aug 2020 23:52:21
Jordao just got unlucky with a major injury but from what I saw of him he certainly can step up.

4.) 18 Aug 2020 05:06:56
MGW way off the mark for me. doesn't get a sniff at this team. Positionally fact he hasn't nailed something down is worrying yet. Plus all his antics and social media point to be someone who gives it large and has done nothing to earn it.

Needs a very good loan spell somewhere.

5.) 18 Aug 2020 07:27:29
Jordeo a yes.
MGW is still very young and had his back injury. Made stupid mistakes but Nuno has stuck with him. If he can get back to the level before his back injury I think he's still worth a place in the match day squad.
MGW needs to kick on or most likely he will be left behind loaned out or sold. A massive season for him I think.

6.) 18 Aug 2020 08:05:54
Hopefully Shebani will be in the picture.

7.) 18 Aug 2020 08:06:37
Add to the mix Meritan Shabani and I think MGW's days at Wolves are all but done.

8.) 18 Aug 2020 08:09:47
I agree a loan spell might be useful for MGW, not too far down the food chain though to damage his confidence.
Maybe a term with a progressive European outfit to give him some game time and help forge his own identity.
He might come back a new player.

9.) 18 Aug 2020 09:46:06
MGW is on a yellow card in Nuno's eyes but is still in with a chance in my eyes. I'd be inclined to loan him to a newly promoted PL team (if anyone will have him) in the hope he can make it in the PL. Failing that I'd loan him to a good championship team like Brentford. Brentford will lose some of their best players, so MGW might slot in nicely.

10.) 18 Aug 2020 12:36:55
Can't understand the MGW saga. He was a England player who was lorded as been a player for the future, now he can't even get on the pitch with Wolves.
I wonder if it's more down to the training he's been given to do?
More Wolves fault in his lack of game time rather than his? We've had some very good players bought in which have never got on the pitch.
Why when we have such a small squad that was obviously knackered in their last game?
Since Bennett and Cav were sold I have questioned Nuno's judgement. Does he judge players too quickly?

11.) 18 Aug 2020 16:18:17
Goggs, MGW is a bit of a mystery to me as well. Many young players look brilliant in the youth teams but can't make the final step up. Also it sometimes takes Nuno time to assimilate a player; remember Dendoncker being on the sidelines initially? MGW needs to go on loan for a while.

12.) 18 Aug 2020 17:00:40
He has enough confidence driving Mercs and wearing 1000 pound trainers on his instagram.

It's the problem with modern footballers they get given everything without ever earning anything. Problem with some young English players. European lads seem to have their heads down a lot more

I just really don't think he fits this team. Better off somewhere like Norwich he can showcase his talent.

13.) 18 Aug 2020 19:26:23
Essentially MGW has in reality had one outstanding game which was against Chelsea at Molineux last season. The MOTD pundits drooled over his performance and to be blunt he has done nothing since.

14.) 18 Aug 2020 20:21:20
Couldn't agree more SQ.

15.) 18 Aug 2020 20:47:08
MGW is not developing because he has not play much football. He needs a loan to a good Championship team that will play him every week. He is still very young.

16.) 18 Aug 2020 22:23:45
MGW not up to the standard we need. I hope we improve the quality of our squad so no matter who Nuno picks they are has good as each other and then we can challenge the top six.

17.) 19 Aug 2020 09:59:24
Anybody else year the rumour that MGW was involved in the Holy injury and this has contributed to his lack of game time. At the moment he looks like just another in the production line that included Kyle Bennett, Mark Davies, and Zele Ishmail.

I think that Neto should take all direct free kicks on the right hand side of the box or central positions going forward. Give Neves and Mouthino a break. Any thoughts?

Still a NES

1.) 21 Feb 2021 14:20:03
Yea, wouldn't let Mouthino near corners or free kicks. For whatever reason the idea of Pedro and him wasting corners and kicks by one jumping over the ball only fools themselves and takes a potential goal threat away from the opposition. Still hasn't seemed to sink in to them.

2.) 21 Feb 2021 14:31:34
Villa 2-0 down.

3.) 21 Feb 2021 15:27:48
NES - not a bad idea and let's be honest the free kicks from Moutinho and Neves have not been good for a while now.

4.) 21 Feb 2021 15:41:23
May well be a lucky bag but I wonder what kind of free kicks Adama could conjure up based on his strike against Leeds.

5.) 21 Feb 2021 16:12:38
Good shout there about Adama NES.

6.) 21 Feb 2021 16:58:10
Ok NES. I would volunteer to lay down behind the wall defending an Adama free kick!



19 Feb 2021 18:29:44
What’s the betting that Helder Costa will score a cracker against us tonight?

Why is Steve McManaman commentating?! Wasn't he caught on mic in the down time of another match swearing and saying how much he hates our club?! 😡.

2.) 19 Feb 2021 20:29:46
Oh Nelson, that HAS to go into the far corner there lad! 😩.

3.) 19 Feb 2021 20:40:45
Enjoying the Peacock commentary team Karen Carney and lee dixon I think.

Edit it's Bill Leslie not Lee Dixon.

5.) 19 Feb 2021 21:09:46
Hard for Willian Jose to get a goal when peeps are playing him in! 😭.

6.) 19 Feb 2021 22:02:04
Good result but let's be honest Leeds have had a rough deal getting nothing there! Not complaining, it's about time Adama got some luck. Rui Particio was MoM for me, he just looks back on it now (love it when he claims the corners:) . There were some big saves there, Costa should have taken the back of the net off at the end so nice to see that not biting us. Whatever his faults Semedo isn't half working hard most games now. He probably had the best chance of the game, such a shame he didn't tuck it away. He doesn't stop sprinting up and down that wing though in fairness. As for Jose Willian it's a funny one, he holds the ball up well and plays others in nicely. He's still got to do more to create his own chances for me. Mind you I suspect he traded some words with Neto there, he was in acers and Pedro was trying to take on the team instead. 10 points for the last 12, can we all now please agree to put the R word to bed for another season?! 🐺👍.

7.) 19 Feb 2021 22:16:11
Tight game but a bit of luck and some good effort got us over the line
But there is plenty of room for improvement, certainly more shape now.



06 Sep 2020 09:48:03
Tim Spiers states to expect 2 more incoming players next week.
Surely we’ll need to sell to finance these moves (from a FFP angle) .
My feeling is that we could still see the exit of Traore in this window in a £65m+ deal.

Still a NES

1.) 06 Sep 2020 11:21:27
I know what you mean NES cause I've been thinking the same thing. In fairness it does depend on how big those other two transfers are (in terms wages as much as anything) . But I can't help thinking as you say we could see another leave yet (wouldn't be surprised if it was Saiss or maybe even Jota) . Either way though as I've said before I trust the project and more to the point Nunos judgement, so for me what will be will be. Just already feeling ready for matches to start up again, even if our starting 11 ain't ready yet! COYW 🙈😂.

2.) 06 Sep 2020 11:59:21
I think it depends on accounting periods as well. Could be we can this young lad up to speed this season without having to sell until the end! Who knows? Let's just get back on the pitch and playing again.

3.) 06 Sep 2020 18:56:03
Supposedly bringing in a defensive midfielder. Paulhina? If so, maybe Dendoncker will be on his way.

4.) 06 Sep 2020 22:43:12
NES - see above.
Clearly if they are both £30-£40m signings then we MIGHT need to do more - as on 4 year contracts a £40m signing costs £10m plus wages.
If we assume we break even in 2019/ 20 - the year that ended in May and pre these two postulated signings we make - a conservative guess given player sales to date - £20m again (the figure we made n 2018/ 19) we will have an aggregate £40m of profits over the 3 years. If you read ED above he states that we need to break even over the period. Consequently unless the new players are on massive salaries we should be absolutely fine in 20/ 21.
Obviously in 21/ 22 (and going forwards) we will still have the "extra £10m per player of contract amortisation ( for 4 years) so might need to grow revenues to pay for that - although of course other players (bought in summer 2018 on 3 year contracts? ) will see their contracts fully amortised and thus perhaps total costs will not rise as much as you might imagine.
I know we are paranoid about FFP given the fine received but please have faith its not as difficult as some would have you believe and Fosun are far from financially stupid.
The problems seemingly all result from the promotion season - when we lost a massive £50m++ figure - but that was because income was peanuts then compared to now. We perhaps gambled on getting promotion -spending way more than we could "afford" but we won!
Going forwards Fosun will manage this as they have everything else so far!

Bully’s I agree the point about Jota being erratic but I do think this transfer makes sense in that it’s dual purpose is to balance the books and allow opportunities for other talented players in the forward line.
Clearly Nuno has stated that this is a new cycle and you can see from the players recruited that this is genuinely a 10-year project. The thing that does concern me is will this erode that tight-knit Portuguese circle of players and encourage the likes of Neves to look for that next move?

Let’s hope he doesn’t go to ‘Pool as they won’t have any intention to pay full value (cheaper target than Ismaila Sarr? )!

Curious that news reports are suggesting AMN is now considering his options due to needing game time.
I wonder if Coady’s had a word in his ear?

Great post Bully’s.
I think it’s time to experiment with formations and personnel even if we lose a few games. We’ll have players returning from injuries in the coming weeks so let’s use the squad (including the youngsters) to see where we’re going and see if a few players rise to the challenge and hopefully save us some money in the transfer market this summer. The planning for next season starts now.

Good point E, we were running on empty in the final 15 minutes and the game was over when we made our second substitution a few minutes before the end.

In terms of right now (away from home certainly), I’d like to see Neto and Traore tuck in a bit closer to each other and for Ottasowie to play behind them with him linking with the midfield pair to start fast breakaways through the middle.
If the wing-backs can provide the width then even with current resources I think we have an effective unit going forwards. I think 20-minute cameos are fine for Silva right now and the positions and the way he is starting to bustle into those positions is encouraging.
For me Jose can play at home where I would allow the wingers more width and leave out Otasowie. In my book it will rapidly become a good time to tinker to properly set us up for next season.

TFIOG, I’m not sure why there is debate as Fabio Silva is not yet ready or at the required level to lead the line in either of the top two leagues in this country. Although he will strengthen and develop I’m uncertain that he is a line leader full stop. But he has got into some good positions and with confidence could have 4 or 5 goals under his belt by now. The only debate is how quickly he will develop and where and when to deploy him when Raul is fit. As stated I would be curious to see them line up together in the future to see if a partnership could evolve.

I’ve been critical of Fabio too but only because it’s not his time yet. Closer analysis of his work to date actually shows much promise. If Nuno is willing to gamble by playing Raul and Fabio together next season I could see the young lad feeding off a real target man. Could have a potential ‘sniffer Clarke’ on our hands in my opinion.
