Re Aldershot was that the day the pitch was like a swimming pool - lost 3-0?

Phil
Loved Floyd - he just needed a set of wheels as when he got there he was "effective". Did you go to Sherpa fan final?
Couldn't get a ticket at Wolves end so stood - think it was still
standing at Burnley end.
Bully obviously the main man but Mutch and Dennison made a top class front three for Div 4 as it was and Div 3 and even Div 2.
What loyalty from Bully - never played in Prem but stuck by us!
Ps met Gary Bellamy, also in that team, at a charity do a few years back - what an incredibly nice man.
Strongly suspect I was the only Wolves fan, well the host introduced me to him as such, there and I must have bored him rigid chatting about those days but if he was bored he masked it v well - impressive!

Phil - yes Peter Knowles - brother of Cyril ( Spurs legend) .
He left the game v early perhaps 23 in the mid to late 60s I think and to be honest I have no memory of him as a player but I do remember the gnashing of teeth at the loss of real prospect!

Ken snap
to be honest it got even better early 70s Doog Curran and Gould became Doog and Richards and although we were never more than 4th- wow 4th!
Cup runs as well UEFA Cup Final, League cup win, FA cup semi final (lost to Leeds) .

Possible but for £35m he better be!
When he was bought this site was full of praise for him which as I hadn't even heard of him - said many times I don't follow Portuguese football, (other than Wolves - who prob have more Portuguese than most Portuguese teams! ) - I couldn't comment on.
But after a few - seemingly uninspiring minutes - doubts, surely prematurely, do seem to be rising as you are not the first to comment on his suitability/ readiness.
I trust Nuno to have done his work and either Silva is the alternative to Jimenez ( and I agree 1 is def enquired - partic now that Jota has gone) or he has another plan.
Sadly with the current squad I have no idea what that plan is!

You are of course correct Traore is still a work in progress.
I wish he would not always make for the corner flag so that he can cross the ball for Jimenez but instead occasionally drive at the goal and force defenders to deal with him
I also wish he could pick up the ball on the run rather than seemingly always having to stand still to receive it before starting off and as to losing it and taking on one to many - you are absolutely correct - hence he can't play RWB. Turning over possession on the edge of your own box is a no no!
Is it not inevitable though that a player who dribbles a lot will always lose the ball sometimes - that is the trade off for the chances he makes by beating people.
Your points though are well made and I agree, as I opened up with he is a work in progress who still needs to improve his judgement as to when to run, where to run and when to pass. Nuno has though worked wonders on his game so far and I am v optimistic that there is much more to come!
Where we disagree is to where that currently values him and more importantly where he will be valued in say 12 months time - when hopefully we and he will have improved and are playing Champ league football.
I also wonder if we would be able to buy a player as good as he is now - let alone where I hope he will be - to replace him. Not for the money {70m buys pretty good player) or the wages (although anyone bought for 70m with the relevant pedigree will want what 200k a week? ) but for the status of the club as it currently stands.
Look how gobsmacked people are that Semedo is coming to Wolves- we would need an attacking version of Semedo if not a lot better. Players of that calibre have lots of choices if they move and at the moment even I find it hard to believe we would be their destination of choice - otherwise why didn't we buy Bruno Fernandes ( a ready made replacement/ upgrade for Moutinho)
But isn't it wonderful after all these years of relative mediocrity to be discussing if our players are great or really great!
V exciting times for an old fella like me!
Keep Safe.

Of course it is all a matter of opinion and you are just as entitled to yours as I am to mine.
I also accept that you are far from the only one with a similar view on this site and I am probably at the other extreme with my view on Traore.
I would have thought Jota at mid 40s is fairly priced - it is the price I put on him when I suggested Wolves would well him in a post about 3 weeks ago, when, even before Wolves bought Silva, I believe he was 5th of 5 options up front or 4th level with Neto
Now he would be 6th - assuming Silva is as good as people on this site tell me he is?
Jota these days in my view is a v inconsistent player who on his day is excellent but over the last two years he has played (in my opinion) well in what 1 in 5?
Traore, as I think it is fair to say, is viewed by the rest of the football world (comments by Richards and Carragher this very week) -- but not by any means all Wolves fans on this site - as an exceptional player. He is totally unplayable, (not at RWB! ) at his best (another class to Jota even at Jota's best) as you saw against City when for 20 mins they had no clue as to what to do other than foul him - a feature we saw regularly all of last season! . If we had taken the gilt edged chances he created amazingly we would have won a game that we were outplayed in for the first half.
He also produces this fairly regularly, hence the rest of the football world raves about him.
I accept that at the moment the end product (goals and assists ) is not as good as we would like but I have discussed this before.
Presumably under instructions he always goes outside (beating defenders at will it seems) rather than occasionally driving into the box to shoot (and be fouled for a pen or score) and crosses to where normally only Jimenez is waiting, ( why wasn't Jota who last year regularly played up front opposite Traore ever on the end of those crosses? ) - although Jimenez does get a fair few goals as a result.
I would say he is not just worth more than Jota but as of today not far short of double - but that is just my opinion - Sorry!
Maybe Klopp agrees with you?
Or Nuno with me?
We don't know and its all opinions anyway!

Sharesum on last night's evidence, (and even without it), you are obviously correct but even as a mad wolves fan I have to accept that what you call Gold dust, or KDB to you and I, isn't turning up any time soon. {Although Moutinho did and 2 years ago he was that player but time is cruel and his legs now look like they can't do it 38+ games a year especially against the v v top teams}
Vitor has presumably been signed as the new CM and if he is half as good as your wish list it will be amazing.
Meantime we have to look for soln's within our squad and the idea of Jonny's above is sensible.
