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 👍.



28 Jan 2020 16:00:36
As predicted, Wolves have returned with an improved offer for Daniel Podence. Talks with Olympiacos are going well and a deal is likely #WWFC

From a well known Greek Journo about an hour ago.

Most reports seem to be along the lines of wolves very optimistic Podence getting done soon.

Nothing concrete on the striker front. Let's not panic aye.


1.) 28 Jan 2020 16:57:19
Plz not Benteke.

2.) 28 Jan 2020 17:44:37
Never thought I'd say this. But we need a body! ease the pressure on Raul. It's a needs must situation. Surely we can snag a half way decent loan striker from somewhere?

Seems like it was a trust issue with Cutrone. can't see us dropping that lucky on a striker this window with someone he truly trusts to fill the Raul slot.

Only one thing is certain. Who ever it is. don't expect much game time. if I'm honest it's a tough sell.

3.) 28 Jan 2020 18:11:47
Deals take time, especially if the selling club is Greek. Greeks don't always come bearing gifts! They negotiate harder than the Spurs chairman.

Wolves are supposed to have a mystery back-up striker in the pipeline if Podence falls through. I wonder if this is just a bluff to pile pressure on the Greeks?

Villa were running around signing players last summer like headless chickens. £100 mil plus spent and they are now in big trouble, relegation-wise and financially. Wolves on the other hand spent incredibly shrewdly, and will continue to do so. In Nuno I trust.

4.) 28 Jan 2020 18:15:24
I've just heard where a Baggie fans's concrete source is. His local builder's merchant.

5.) 28 Jan 2020 19:09:41
Possibly matheus cunha. on his way.

6.) 28 Jan 2020 20:11:56
Daniel sturridge is the unnamed target 💯 I new Daniel at young age and Dean ex wolves striker who has told Daniel to sign n prove he still got it 4 mill deadline day u heard it from me 1st mock me make jokes this will happen.

7.) 28 Jan 2020 20:51:16
16.9 Mill.

8.) 28 Jan 2020 21:02:37
Sturridge would be no good here, given Wolves former head of the Med. dept. has joined L. A Galaxy. Unless DS real role is for medical students to inspect how reoccurring injuries are treated?

9.) 29 Jan 2020 09:59:07
We would need more than Super Phil to keep him fit Debs - maybe we're going to sign him because we're recruiting that well known Portugese medic Jesus Christ to work on him, one touch and he can run for miles!



26 Jan 2020 15:52:20
Report coming in that we have dropped out the race for Nelson Olivera to pursue another striker. no name mentioned.

The Podence deal looks close.


1.) 26 Jan 2020 17:42:19
Probably be Andrea silva. We ain't been mentioned with him this year.

2.) 26 Jan 2020 18:04:28
Tim Spiers is saying “I'm told Wolves are hoping to wrap up the permanent signing of Daniel Podence tomorrow. Final details being ironed out and he's been left out of the Olympiakos squad today”.

3.) 26 Jan 2020 20:00:34
Podence left out of tonight's match v AEK Olivera sub for AEK.

4.) 26 Jan 2020 19:53:35
It might all be true but he hasn't actually been in the Olympiakos squad for 6 games now. So leaving him out means nought.

5.) 26 Jan 2020 22:12:29
Deal for Podence OFF. Via Wolves supporters Alliance original source Talking Wolves twitter.

6.) 26 Jan 2020 22:39:52
He's had a Medical at Compton today and will be announced tomorrow.

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.


1.) 06 Feb 2020 19:44:27
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! 😡.



30 Jan 2020 16:01:39
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!


1.) 30 Jan 2020 17:54:41
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?!

2.) 30 Jan 2020 18:57:57
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 👍.



29 Jan 2020 15:20:33
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.

3.) 29 Jan 2020 20:58:04
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.

4.) 30 Jan 2020 00:12:50
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 👍.



15 Jan 2020 14:56:09
Hasn't taken Cutrone long to get off the mark this aft.

Hope he does well in fairness.

Heard nothing concrete on a new striker. Feel like this will be a defining window for us in the transfer department. As daft as that sounds.

Nuno has nailed his colours to the mast in this one saying we will get players in. Almost feel like its calling Fosun out to deliver.


1.) 15 Jan 2020 18:16:13
Just watched the Fiorentina Atalanta game you mention Toms.
Cutrone was desperate at the end it seems to get some adulation from team mates and fans alike.

Looks like the guy thrives on compliments and pats on the back which as we know from his own admission Nuno does not dish out.

2.) 15 Jan 2020 19:25:56
Read somewhere that Cutrone started sulking when Nuno changed the formation to a 343 as it meant he wouldn't play as much as Jimenez was the better target man and Traore and Jota were better suited to the wider roles. Nuno weren't having him disrupt the dressing room so got rid of him.



12 Dec 2019 05:56:41
Report linking us with Hwang Hee Chan teenage forward from Salzburg who has greatly impressed alongside Haaland.

Would say other positions still the priority. but I'm never against bringing in quality.


{Ed047's Note - noted your other post Tom saying he’s not a teenager but actually 23yrs old. So I’ve added that here. 👍
