Raul has come out and said in as many words that he will be staying in an interview.

His contract is till 2023 and he is happy. Also it doesn't matter if we don't get into the champions league. He is doing important things at Wolves.
If this turns out to be the case I'm more than happy!


1.) 02 Apr 2020 20:34:40
I hope yow lot am keepin' okay!

2.) 05 Apr 2020 16:46:12
All good Debbie. Stay safe.



23 Mar 2020 07:02:51
Rumour. Wolves interested in John McGinn.

I'd snap him up for sure. Great competition in that midfield will be needed.


1.) 23 Mar 2020 19:08:08
Haha, how exactly has this developed as a new rumours not like they've been scouting him?! Have to be honest I don't get the hype with McGinn, seems to have one good game in three then spend the rest of the time injured?! I wouldn't sign anyway but also consider that he would cost a fortune due to recently signing a new contract. Why spend big money on what will only be a squad player next season, cause there's NO way I'd pick him over Jaoa or Reuben! Save the money and go for someone like Beundia after Norwich go down he'd be a great squad player. For a start he'd be half the price and looks every bit as good as McGinn to be honest. COYW ;)

2.) 23 Mar 2020 20:49:42
In fairness Bullys good point. I've been singing Buendia's praises all season. Would make a quality addition and a different element for creative force.

On John McGinn I'm going to have to disagree with you. I think he is a genuine top talent. In terms of midfielders he offers a few different qualities that add a another dimension. Very dynamic and drives the ball at feet brilliantly. Check out Tifo footballs assessment on him! Very interesting mix that he offers.

3.) 23 Mar 2020 21:56:35
I'd like to throw a name into the hat. Todd Cantwell of Norwich City.

4.) 24 Mar 2020 03:52:34
I think he is a very good player. Someone any team should be looking at.

Not sure he is a Nuno type player. The roll down socks and hair add to the Jack Grealish copycat style. He seems to fancy himself a bit more than our usual type.

I'm probably being a bit hyper critical there. Just don't see it somehow.

5.) 24 Mar 2020 08:12:28
I agree totally with Buendia from Norwich and think he would be a good addition to our central midfield. Don’t rate McGinn at all though. Seems like another Snodgrass type player to me - capable of the odd bit of magic but overall lacking in real quality.

6.) 24 Mar 2020 15:35:32
Again last I will say on this one. Completely disagree with that also. I think he has bags of quality. I might be going out on a limb but I don't care think he will be a premier league player for years to come.

Best asset he is a workhorse who is industrious enough to get forward. Has a lovely balance for a midfielder. Most importantly he seems to have exactly the right attitude to be a success and fit in for us. The Snodgrass link makes no sense to me. But fair play different strokes.

7.) 24 Mar 2020 23:00:48
What's this with players from relegation certainties? Not in the class that we are now in. Come out of the time warp, folks.

8.) 25 Mar 2020 11:05:02
So, Old Wulf, you're suggesting Jack Grealish et al, are not in the same class as our team because their team is in danger of relegation? I think Grealish would slot in to any prem team. Many others as well.

9.) 25 Mar 2020 21:07:29
Cantwell will sign for a bigger team when Norwich go down which is probable and he is one we could loom at as for McGinn I like him and he was good at Hibs but my gut says he has peaked and will be rattling around relegation clubs or Celtic for the next few years.

10.) 26 Mar 2020 19:11:16
Not sure who your 'et al' are Belfast but Grealish may be the exception to the rule although I think he's very much in the Dele Ali flatters to deceive mould. The two Norwich players mentioned above don't consistently get in their team which, let's face it, is currently no better than mid Championship standard. McGinn is hard working and a Mick McCarthy ' put a shift in' type. Is he really good enough? Someone else mentioned Snodgrass, almost certainly in jest.

11.) 27 Mar 2020 09:20:50
Again, Old Wulf, you think Grealish "flatters to deceive", guess a lot of prem lge managers are easily deceived then. Silly men, eh? Think Ake, C. Wilson, R. Fraser, J. Lewis, Buenida, Cantwell are a few who will be on a lot of managers' wish lists if worst happens. Just my opinion mind.

12.) 27 Mar 2020 15:13:54
Indeed, Belfast, it's all about opinion. I did say that Grealish was the possible exception. As for the others you mention, I agree that they'll all be in demand but I doubt very much if they'll be of interest to top 6 clubs which should be the waters that we are now fishing in.

13.) 28 Mar 2020 19:34:53
Old- thing is, you yourself have just proven how FAR more nuanced transfers are than just going 'well the team they played in got relegated so they must be poor players"! You mention Buendia doesn't get into the Norwich team but there's a reason for that, quite simply they are now having to play a game that's more about defending than creativity. For example did you know that Beundia actually has the highest average ratio for points to games played in the entire Norwich team? Or that he is only 23 and improving in quickly? I just think its too simplistic to go well they play for a relegation bound team so they must be poor, if you don't believe me wait till the end of the season and just watch the tug of war some of the top teams have over Jamal Lewis and Max Aarons. Both players have been part of one of the worst defences in the league but that doesn't mean that a quality manager with a good eye for a player and a bit of self belief wouldn't think that at 20 years old both players aren't fantastic young prospects.
Tell me this then Old guessing you don't think we should have signed Traore then? Cause he was relegated with Villa and then even worse from there made a sideways move to another Champs club (Mids) so by your reckoning he could NEVER be a top six player now? I suspect some of the biggest clubs in the world will be in disagreement with you come the next transfer window, fingers cross your right! ;)

14.) 28 Mar 2020 23:57:19
Robinson signed by Liverpool from a relegated Hull has turned out to be one of the best bits of business in seasons! The list of 'exceptions' is quite large and therefore does suggest it's worth considering? 👍.

15.) 31 Mar 2020 12:34:58
I think that the number of clubs in for Grealish may have reduced as a result of his latest exploits. Complete and utter tripe!

16.) 31 Mar 2020 14:59:12
Haha very true Old! I can't stand the guy but it really is a shame that he seems SO intent on self destructing. I mean even if I don't like him he clearly has some talent but it seems he is determined to waste it playing lower level Prem/ Champ footy! I mean the end of this season really was his last and best chance for a move to a TOP club and he does that! The guy clearly has a problem as he has ALWAYS shown a complete lack of self control! He also left the scene so I hope the police hammer him for that, what a disgrace!

17.) 31 Mar 2020 15:12:19
Ps- I bet Villas board are FAR more angry than anyone! They were ALWAYS going to stay regardless of what league Villa finished in and he's just slashed over half off his value in one evening!

11 Feb 2020 20:27:24
Linked with a move for Kalvin Phillips of Leeds. On the chance that they don't win promotion this year. All talk of course

Watching him tonight against Brentford tonight. I will be honest we could do a lot worse! Seems to have the lot. Strong aggressive can ping an absolute beauty of a ball.

At the right price I'd rip their arm off. wouldn't say that about many champ players.


1.) 12 Feb 2020 07:31:35
Agree, very good player, I'd say long term replacement for moutiniho.

2.) 12 Feb 2020 09:44:45
Don't fancy that Leeds winger, whatisname, something Costa?
He will costa-lot for Leeds bank balance! 15 big ones coming into Wolves soon. Imagine what Nuno can do with an extra £15mil? Nuno can create huge value by buying low (Traore, Jota, Jimenez, the list goes on and on) and selling high. Nuno didn't buy Costa, that was Walter.

I have an idea about Kalvin Phillips if Leeds don't get promoted. To save them shelling out for Costa, just do a swop for Phillips.

3.) 12 Feb 2020 10:29:31
Correction. Walter Zenga brought Costa in and paid a loan fee I think, with an option to buy. It was under Nuno in the championship that the buy option was invoked, but at that time there was strong PL interest in Costa and we needed to keep him. Unfortunately after his injury he was never the same again. I'm at least right in saying that Nuno didn't bring Costa to Wolves as he was already there.

4.) 12 Feb 2020 12:15:21
Am I right in saying Leeds have an obligation to buy Costa?

5.) 12 Feb 2020 12:53:20
Toms Tatters, you are right. Leeds must write the cheque at the end of the season. He he. Masterstroke by Nuno.

6.) 12 Feb 2020 15:22:12
Tell you what masterclass in the market at the moment. Heard today if Leeds don't get promoted Phillip's has a buyout of 20mil.

So that's Costa and 5 mil. Gew on then!

7.) 13 Feb 2020 09:28:02
Costa's loan was made permanent in the January after he joined on loan in the summer. Paul Lambert was our manager at the time.

8.) 13 Feb 2020 11:12:41
Greg, thanks. I remember now, it was Lambert. Costa had a great match at Anfield in the cup win against Liverpool. He also scored a superb goal at Cardiff. His form the interested a few PL clubs. It probably was a no-brainer to keep him. Nuno simply inherited him and did the right thing in letting him go to Leeds.

9.) 14 Feb 2020 13:12:25
@Deep Throat, definitely! I think every single fan was screaming for Costa to be signed up at the time - the guy was our single best player that year. Sadly, as happens so many times, injuries / manager changes / confidence and all sort of other variable just went against him. Time to move on. He'll be a great player for many more teams I'm sure and wish him the best. I respect that about Nuno, if he doesn't think a player is right, out they go. No time for sentiment or misplaced loyalty.

09 Feb 2020 07:46:38
Adama strong interest from Barcelona and Real Madrid. 70-80 Mil

Raul to Man united or Chelsea.

And Ruben always linked with somewhere. Hope it's all rubbish!

These three seem to be the ones to be worried about this summer. I'd love to keep all three. But I would imagine we might loose at least one. The fees would be insane profit. Definitely least like to loose Raul though.


1.) 09 Feb 2020 13:58:33
They're going knowhere yet.

2.) 09 Feb 2020 14:49:54
Of all of them the Traore one is probably the most realistic given his background, the likely profit, and the like chance of obtaining a suitable replacement.
I would be a shame but that is the way it is these days. No Bully's any longer.

3.) 09 Feb 2020 16:34:59
These rumours have been doing the rounds for a while. What no one from the media has suggested is if we finish top 4 or win the Europa League and qualify for CL, why would any of them leave to be bit part players when they could star first us in the CL. Media have this tendency to insist that any player will want to play for the so called bigger teams and have no loyalty to the likes of Wolves.

4.) 09 Feb 2020 20:15:19
TBH I'd sell Traore and invest it into other areas. Selling Coutinho did wonders for Liverpool.

5.) 09 Feb 2020 22:41:00
I honestly can't see um going to Spain, I think its Citys 'rebuilding' that concerns me. Look at Madrid in Adamas position they currently have Vinicius Junior (who they paid £40m for) and Odegaard both are 21 not to mention Vasquez and all of um already don't get the minutes they need in the first team! As for Barcelona are they REALLY going to pay £70+ for a player they let go for buttons? Whilst ALSO being in the process of writing off a suspected £60m+ on their last Prem import that didn't work out at all (Coutinho)?
For me City are the ones to watch because Pep has had a front row seat as to what Adamas capable of he also lacks the one thing missing in the City team and that's raw speed! Time will tell but we will get interest in Traore cause as others have said there just SO few players in the world that can do what he does! As for Neves well to be honest he needs to find his form again for me, frankly if we had better options I think I would benched him by now! Time will tell but I hope we stand firm if it does happen, no shame in selling everyone does it the important thing would be that it makes us stronger! COYW ;)

6.) 09 Feb 2020 22:57:02
Haha obvs that's a typo and I didn't mean Adama LACKS pace rather HAS it (in abundance)! I hope we could have all guessed that's not what I meant ;)

7.) 10 Feb 2020 05:13:55
If we qualify for the Champions league, they ain't going anywhere.

8.) 10 Feb 2020 10:11:54
Same old, same old. Mostly they are something like Darren Bent saying Jimenez should go to a "top team" like Man U or Chelsea. Don't make me laugh Darren. Then clickbait Birmingham Live reports them, repeatedly, and News Now features them every ten minutes or so.

Another rumour I've read is Jack Grealish house-hunting in Manchester. That's probably a wind up for Villa fans. Why would Grealish be house-hunting now?

9.) 10 Feb 2020 16:53:55
It's inevitable that we will be losing some of our big players at some point. It's the price of success. I believe, and i've heard it from someone that I trust and is usually correct, that Neves will move in the summer if we don't get European football next season. Mendez has to do his best for his clients as well as us of course and that's his call. Might be wrong here but it sounds plausible to me. Been here longer than Raul or Traore etc who I doubt will move on just yet.

10.) 10 Feb 2020 19:54:44
See Tett I can believe that the club have some sort of agreement with Neves like that because they were quite up front about the fact he was the only player that we knocked back an enquiry for in the summer. I have wondered if that has turned Reubens head a little cause it can't just be me that thinks that for the most of this season he's looked a shadow of his former self?
That said if he really does want a move he needs to get his head down and start findin some big performances! Cause I can't see us letting him go for any less than £40m and right now I'm not sure he'd be worth it!

11.) 10 Feb 2020 23:13:45
BullysBoy II - perhaps we’ve been watching a different Ruben Neves? I’ve been watching the one who’s been brilliant this season as evidenced by his MoTM performance at Old Trafford in our last game where he outshone Bruno Fernandes with ease. And as for not selling him for ‘less than £40m’ that is presumably a joke right? Try doubling it and then adding quite a bit more on top and when you get to £100m keep going.

12.) 11 Feb 2020 02:23:09
The problem is Das that he does look like a different player to me, from last season anyway. You seem to misunderstand me it's not that I don't think he has quality, he has plenty it's that I don't think he's playing as well as he was. Not nearly in fact, yes he played well agaisnt United but you can't honestly say he's currently hitting the potential we saw previously? The stats show it as well by the way, last season over 40 games he got 5 goals and 5 assists, this season 37 games in and he's on 2 goals and 2 assists. Then compare that to Maddison who is currently on 7 goals and 7 assists! Tell me this Das if you had to pick him or Moutinho to drop which would it be, there's only one answer?! But Moutinho is 32 and still regualarly outshining him and I just don't think that should be the case. Why isn't he taking any set pieces these days? Could it be because Moutinho has a higher success rate? As I've said I don't doubt his ability or potential but he looks to me like a player that's struggling to take the next step and find the consistency required at this level. That might just be that he needs more time or it could in fact be because his heads already been turned. Hopefully that isn't the case and he can find his old form again because you REALLY don't need to tell me how good he CAN be! COYW.

13.) 11 Feb 2020 02:24:45
Ps- he outshone a player that had arrived at his club less than a week before, not sure why you'd even compare the performance to Fernandes to be honest?

14.) 11 Feb 2020 11:40:22
TBF Neves hasn't been playing in his natural position he is more of an attacking midfielder, he has been played quite deep this season.
At old trafford he was allowed to attack more which is why we saw the Neves we all know and love.

15.) 20 Feb 2020 23:55:40
Das- there ya go fella that's what I mean! What a performance by Rueben! Was certainly back to his old self tonight, will only be pipped to mom by what was also probs Jotas best performance of the season to boot! Now if he can get back to putting those performances in regular (not just the goal of course cause even I don't expect wonder strikes like that every week;) again then I would certainly agree with your £80+m valuation! More of the same for Sunday please cause if we attack like that it should be a similar scoreline! COYW ;)



31 Jan 2020 10:56:20
Ryan Bennett to Leicester! Wtf.


1.) 31 Jan 2020 11:12:35
Yeah saw that bit strange, we need someone in now.

2.) 31 Jan 2020 11:15:16
Yeah not to impressed with this tbh especially if no more players are coming like Speirs said.
I'm sure we'll be ok though.

3.) 31 Jan 2020 11:15:55
Surely nuno must have a replacement coming in.

4.) 31 Jan 2020 11:45:36
Absolute joke. Donk a liability right centre back. makes too many mistakes. only him and boly can play ther an I prefer boly as left centre back. big mistake by wolves. obviously nuno fell out with bennett.

5.) 31 Jan 2020 11:59:30
Basher going to leicester?
Must be getting topsaba?

6.) 31 Jan 2020 12:03:08
Non football related reasons again, obviously.

7.) 31 Jan 2020 12:05:26
Only makes sense if someone's coming in.

8.) 31 Jan 2020 12:41:51
We won't be signing anyone else and other then podence which is a great signing this transfer window will go down as the worst one under fosun.

9.) 31 Jan 2020 13:23:03
With the Big signing of Podence it does feel eased in terms of frustration. Something could yet happen though.

Like we have seen unlikely. Maybe it's time for some of the u23s to start taking more of a forward role. And have a chance. First team quality is what we ideally need. But those lads are all good young bodies that will come in and want to work their socks off. Sod it if knowone else comes. Unpopular opinion I'm sure.

10.) 31 Jan 2020 14:06:26
Hasn't Nuno said that Bennett has asked to leave as he isn't getting the game time anymore and Kilman, Donk, Saiss, Boly and Coady are all ahead of him in the pecking order.

11.) 31 Jan 2020 14:09:00
Bennett moves on to make room for Evan N'Dicka.

12.) 31 Jan 2020 14:21:55
Bennett asked for a move to get game time, some of you need to calm down.

13.) 31 Jan 2020 14:55:26
I hope all these yougsters come good soon I do not have many years left.

14.) 31 Jan 2020 14:58:38
I'd heard there was a bit of a falling out between him and Big Willy before Xmas.
Looks like it might be true.

15.) 31 Jan 2020 17:29:29
After a poor summer window having both our big signings having already left and now only one first team player coming in when Nuno clearly wanted a few additions you've got to start thinking our head of recruitment needs looking at, without our mendes link getting Podence through the door we could have seen no one come in. Luckily we have a great team and manager but just hope nuno doesn't get fed up and leave in the summer after being let down in the last two windows.

16.) 31 Jan 2020 17:33:56
Giles could be going back to shrewsbury meaning the only wing backs we have are doherty and jonny while vinagre is injured.

17.) 31 Jan 2020 17:40:45
Read his interview again.
He is only looking to strengthen, to add quality, not just quantity.
Personally I think it has been a good window for business.
Some will spout on about a striker but how many teams are looking for one at this very moment? Probably all of the Premier League.
Be satisfied and back the club.
We're out of the EU in a few hours so something else to look forward too!

18.) 31 Jan 2020 19:16:41
I do get wound up with this old 'Nunos been let down' line because it pretends to know how someone feels when we have not a clue! He wanted signings well we got 4 of um and all exciting prospects. I think the thing that annoys me with the line is that it assumes Nuno isn't calling the shots when I seriously suspect that he is! It's him that has a preferences for small squads (always has) because he likes to keep players happy and he knows that's not possible with big teams. I admit to being surprised by Bennett but by the sound of it the player pushed for the move so that pretty much explains it. I wonder if Nuno thinks between Jordao amd Lodice we will have cover in the middle of the park thus allowing Saiss and Donks to continue as defensive cover?

19.) 31 Jan 2020 19:17:16
I also think Kilman will be FAR better than Bennett in a seasons time! COYW 👍.

20.) 31 Jan 2020 21:42:53
He's only 17 but Luke Matheson, wolves steve.

21.) 31 Jan 2020 23:03:13
I wouldn’t worry about CB. We’ve got Boly, Kilman, Coady, Saiss and Dendonker. Good window in my opinion, class player in Podence, and some great youth players.

22.) 01 Feb 2020 12:22:51
Benno is a better defender than Donk but I think Donk plays Nuno's type of football, working the ball forward and good for moving up to the box for set pieces.

In an old school 442, Benno would be a regular right CB without a doubt.

I hope he gets game time at Leicester. They seem to be doing pretty well with the squad they've got so he's probably there for cover rather than seriously competing for a place. But that's what we thought at Wolves when he joined us as a freebie with Ruddy.

23.) 01 Feb 2020 15:26:00
They've only bought him cause they want there player who wasn't playing to go out and get game time (Benkovic) so I think they'll only see him as back up. But your quite right he would be better in a 442 cause it's the passing he struggles with in our system 👍.

Following that there is not much out there in the way of rumours. who would people want bought in for next season. I have a little list of players I wouldn't mind and could fit nicely. I'm quite bored
Maybe 1 from each
Back up to Raul:

Serdar Azmoun
Kasper Dolberg
Divock Origi

Really young striker option
Troy Parrott
Adam Idah

Emi Buendia
John McGinn

Tyrone Mings (dont have problem taking villa players)
Nathan Ake
Max Aarona (doc back up)


1.) 21 Mar 2020 17:45:50
I would have all of um on your list Toms except for Mings. Now that's not cause he's ex-Villa (I couldn't care less) its because he's WOEFUL! The guy couldn't find the right position with a Sat nav and for a big guy he doesn't half avoid a lot of headers! If you think I'm being harsh pop onto the Villa page, most are saying worst!
I would LOVE us to get Origi but fear he will be pretty happy where he is right now. Max Aarons, Idah and Ake any of which would be CLASS signings but I suspect as they are young and English I think all will be too pricey.

I would like us to get a REAL quality CB, I would still be keen on that Reuben Dias lad. He'd fit into our squad like a glove (I mean he's called Reuben;) and is seen as one the best young CBs in Europe. Strikers going to be a tough one to solve, we've fallen into the problem many clubs do that Raul is SO good anyone else will be coming to play back up so that makes it tough to get quality? Hows that Aboubakar guy doing lately, anyone? COYW ;)

2.) 22 Mar 2020 14:53:17
Ake is Dutch not English Bullys l don't think he's any better than what we got just my oppinion

Les Buxton Wolf.

3.) 23 Mar 2020 00:58:41
I know he's Dutch but because of Prem rules and the fact that he was at a Prem club for three years between the age of 18-21 (Chelsea) he still counts as homegrown (loads of foreign players like it Begovic is one, which is also why Chelsea signed him when they did) . With Brexit (and possible 'foreign player' quotas to follow) those players will almost certainly become increasingly valuable! He's also a full homegrown player for Chelsea (in terms of Champs League quotas), which is precisely why they've kept an eye on him since he's left. And (for me) I think he's better than most of our CBs to be honest, certainly quicker and stronger anyway. Maybe except for Big Willy. Mind you I still don't think he's THAT much better than most of um. Certainly not improved enough to justify the (likely) HUGE fee required 👍.

4.) 23 Mar 2020 11:11:32
Mings Mcginn origi no no no for me.
Ake a yes all day long if it was possible.
The others I don't know who they are.
Stay safe good health all.

5.) 23 Mar 2020 19:10:22
Thanks for that Bullys stay safe mate

Les Buxton Wolf.

6.) 24 Mar 2020 06:56:44
I don’t think Mings is a good centre back at all Coady is better in every department he was a good wing back when he was younger. I really rate Buendia and Ake and would definitely strengthen the squad as would McGinn. I think spurs would want to hang on to Troy Parrott as he’s young and supposedly a very good up and coming player again Max Aarons would be a quality signing we do need another striker but they are hard to come by I wonder how Chelsea would feel about Batshuayi leaving was excellent for palace on loan a couple of seasons ago although I think he would be 50M plus I thought Origi would be a fantastic signing before but again think he would cost a lot.

7.) 26 Mar 2020 09:38:27
We’ve let a better central defender leave for Leicester, Mings is incredibly overrated.



04 Mar 2020 15:21:31
We seem to be getting linked with wingers of recent. Allan Saint Maximan and today Hirving Lozano. would seem like an area in need of filling with what we have.

Do we need wingers. We have Adama, Podence and Neto who all play there. These rumours are just click bait. Don't believe them.

Just come up on central news our great club. Unfortunately it was to mention one moron making monkey chants. Absolute oxygen thief! I've been up the Wolves more times than I can remember. Thankfully never seen that.

It seems this type of thing is happening at all clubs atm. Be honest seeing them tie us hand in hand with that is gutting.

Disgusting fella, not REAL football fans none of them! Sadly it is on the rise which is also why it's important to report it if any of us ever see it! Don't care if they are our fans or not as I don't want THAT representing the club I love! 😡.

According to E&S Benny Ashley seal going out on loan. Given that he is currently seemingly our only used back up striker, that him leaving meaning they are fairly certain another is coming in?

Maybe I'm jumping the Gun. After Podence I'm really hoping for a nice surprise striker wise. Someone nobody sees coming.

Maybe it will pan out that way. Big 24 hrs ahead for us!

Leo Campana is available sooner than expected, and trained with the first team squad this week. Who knows, he could be a surprise hit as back-up striker. Neto has come through sooner than expected, so we shouldn't automatically pigeon-hole players for the Under 23s and the first team squad. Didn't Wayne Rooney make and score in his Everton debut while still in nappies?!

I also think the reality is that after hauling him off at half time (something Nuno rarely does) after a fairly anonymous performance Nuno would be more likely to start Jota or Podence up there if needed to be honest. Of course I'm not writing Ashley off before anyone says it but after watching him agaisnt United the lad needs to learn his trade at a lower level before he's ready me thinks 👍.

With all the talk of us needing bodies. Which is very true and first team will come!

Made me think of our academy options. The fact it is looking like an incredibly promising batch. Massive drive for us at the moment.

With that in mind is there anyone deserving from the under 23s of more time. Got this Loidoce coming in and many more.

Who is everyones tip for the next big thing to come through to the first team? From what I've watched that Chem Campbell looks top notch prospect.


1.) 29 Jan 2020 16:07:46
Campbell, Loiodice, Nya, Shabani, Cristovao and Campana.

2.) 29 Jan 2020 17:51:17
Lee Harkin.

I'm looking forward to seeing Jordao back on the bench, he looked good on his goal scoring debut! Also I know he's already in the squad but I'd like to see more of Kilman. If I'm honest I would probs start him in the current defence (maybe not when Willy's back) . Still not doubting Nunos choices for a second, people can say what they want about the recruitment it's like water off a ducks back. Cause we have some seriously good youngsters these days! COYW.

Timing of that, honestly hadn't seen he'd scored again! Nice to hear Gibbs finally starting to find his feet again as well, shame we went out mind. Out of darkness cometh light! COYW 👍.

Again last I will say on this one. Completely disagree with that also. I think he has bags of quality. I might be going out on a limb but I don't care think he will be a premier league player for years to come.

Best asset he is a workhorse who is industrious enough to get forward. Has a lovely balance for a midfielder. Most importantly he seems to have exactly the right attitude to be a success and fit in for us. The Snodgrass link makes no sense to me. But fair play different strokes.

I think he is a very good player. Someone any team should be looking at.

Not sure he is a Nuno type player. The roll down socks and hair add to the Jack Grealish copycat style. He seems to fancy himself a bit more than our usual type.

I'm probably being a bit hyper critical there. Just don't see it somehow.

In fairness Bullys good point. I've been singing Buendia's praises all season. Would make a quality addition and a different element for creative force.

On John McGinn I'm going to have to disagree with you. I think he is a genuine top talent. In terms of midfielders he offers a few different qualities that add a another dimension. Very dynamic and drives the ball at feet brilliantly. Check out Tifo footballs assessment on him! Very interesting mix that he offers.

I'd expect us to maybe loose a couple big names. Raul/ Neves/ Adama. 1or2 I could see going. Saying that if we get champions or another year in the Europa. why not keep em all.

All bets would be off.

Saw today the mail are saying we are after Allan Saint Maximan from Newcastle as a replacement for Adama! I'd love a job where I just get to make up random BS.

Do you think the guys at these papers are just basing the rumours off their Fifa Career modes.
