Neves to Barcelona can only happen if Barcelona get the money for Frankie De Jong (but Man U know Barcelona are desperate and so are trying to pay less which then means Barcelona won't sell and can't therefore afford Neves) - unfortunately this is likely to mean Neves will end up at Utd instead which whilst we may get more money from Man U than Barcelona does mean he'd be playing against us next season (which I'd rather he wasn't).

Interesting article in The Mirror about Barcelona being €1bn in the the red.

Barcelona chief asks to "save" club with alarming £426m declaration Barcelona are deep in debts of €1 billion with the likes of Sergio Busquets, Gerard Pique and Jordi Alba having to accept a cut in their salary for over a year.

chief Eduard Romeu has made an alarming declaration claiming that £427million is needed to save the club from the mess they currently find themselves in.

The Spanish side are deep in financial trouble with debts in the region of €1billion (£849.5m). As a result, Barcelona couldn't afford to offer Lionel Messi a new deal last summer and the Argentine subsequently joined Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer.

Despite securing the signings of Chelsea's Andreas Christensen and AC Milan's Franck Kessie on free transfers, the club are now unable to register the pair due to their salary cap, according to The Athletic.

"The number doing the most damage is asset imbalance," Romeu told Sport. "The negative capital of €500m. You could add €150m to that in losses this season if we didn’t do anything. I said it before, if someone wants give me €500m. That is what we need to save Barca."

First team players Gerard Pique, Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba have agreed to take a salary cut to comply with La Liga's salary cap requirements. The club were offered help by La Liga through a CVC investment deal proposed by the league, which Romeu revealed will be rejected by the club. "It’s a bad deal," he said.

"For us, despite all the pressure we have received and the Fair Play issue we always have to keep in mind. From a financial point of view, it's settled and I think the president [Joan Laporta] has been very clear."

Isn't this old Debbie with the Spotify deal they have sorted this?
Don't get me wrong they don't have £250m to spend but if they move on some players that aren't needed for good value they can bring in players they need.
Just doesn't look like Neves will be going there. But will wolves sell to a prem team especially Utd or Arsenal that are relatively close to us in the league.



25 May 2022 19:01:35
If Neves is going to end up at Barcelona they certainly can't afford the minimum 70 mill we are supposedly asking for and so are trying to offer us players in exchange.

Now just cause young players can't get in a Barcelona team that need immediate success and so is full of current world stars doesn't mean there aren't young players who they don't want right now but who would improve our team, but I just can't see them finding players to make up Neves's value without said players being vastly over-valued.

This I feel is neither good news for us or Neves (who appears to want to go to Barca)


1.) 25 May 2022 20:09:30
I don't want Neves to go but if he does I won't begrudge him he deserves to be winning trophies.
We could say exchange Neves for 3 players plus Trincao from Barcelona those 3 players say could be what's needed to give our too comfy players a kick up the backside to give 100% every single match as their place will be more at risk in the team.
Also that'd free up some funds so we could possibly go for Paullinha for £20mill as quoted too.
I'm only pondering things here though.

2.) 25 May 2022 21:00:59
So was I Rated - I'd love us to get Palhinha as he's a bit different to what we've had before in that he's good both defensively and going forward so could be great with Moutinho and 1 other.

3.) 25 May 2022 22:15:52
After Shi dropped a brick over the Traore deal/not a deal with Barcelona I'd wait until they show the money before even starting the conversation. Don't trust them!

4.) 25 May 2022 23:50:42
Yeah Ken agree mate I think Wolves will want contracts agreed before doing any deal with Barcelona now.

5.) 26 May 2022 10:22:58
Yes need to box clever with Barcelona from now on.

6.) 26 May 2022 10:40:50
Not so sure about your assessment of Paulinha,Wolflea.Bit too dendockerish (new word for the dictionary?) for my liking and not of the ilk to help take us to the next level.

7.) 26 May 2022 10:47:24
Can't see Neves to Barcelona myself. Besides their financial problems they are overrunning with young midfield talent. Real are possibly more likely with Modric and Kroos getting nearer 40 than 30!

8.) 26 May 2022 11:13:29
Honestly can't see Wolves signing 4 or 5, apart from the fees their salary has to be paid and that costs. Think it will be a case of one in and one out, with a close eye on the budget.

9.) 26 May 2022 14:00:31
Not trying to be antagonistic here but what's the difference between the the Traore to Barcelona 'deal' and the Trincao to Wolves one? In both cases there was no obligation to buy, as I understand it, leaving the emphasis on both players to excel in order to facilitate a purchase.
That didn't happen so both are going home, so to speak.
Good relations with Barcelona will clearly be to our advantage going forward so just because those two potential deals didn't work doesn't mean that others won't.

10.) 26 May 2022 21:44:01
Oldwulf - yeah Palhinha is "Dendonckerish" but with better defensive and offensive stats (is that such a bad thing then for him to be an upgrade on a player who has been nothing but professional whilst at the club and has done far better than a lot of supporters give him credit for), personally I'd love a good player with Dendonckers professionalism. I seem to remember Moutinho praising Palhinha after playing together for Portugal earlier in the season (if he's good enough for Moutinho then I think he's good enough for Wolves).

11.) 27 May 2022 06:36:50
Palhinha is what we’ve been crying out for do you not remember how he bossed the midfield against ours for braga and created chances not to mention how good he was at the euros for me I think he will be an outstanding signing

12.) 27 May 2022 20:58:14
We have been watching Pauhlina for few years.
Excellent if we get him.
Fingers crossed ?



06 Apr 2022 23:01:36
I see we're being linked with Ocampos again and Saint Maximin although tellingly Fabrizio Romano is reporting Saint-Maximin is unlikely to leave Newcastle.

I'd suggest the Ocampos link is old news being regurgitated.

I doubt we'll sign any new wingers as we have enough strength there (including Gibbs-White and Giles who return from loan and may well get a chance next season).

I think we may see Neves go as the rumours of wanting Champions League football and links to teams likely to be in Champions League next year seem quite strong but if we do have to sell (and I hope we don't) this should give us money for at least two new central midfielders which may give rise to a change in formation to just 4 at the back with a strong defensive midfielder (like Paulinha) just in front for protection.


1.) 07 Apr 2022 06:50:18
Ocampus is a winger then great post wolfflea.
I read man utd urged to sign Neves,I too would like to see him stay with us.

2.) 07 Apr 2022 09:56:59
The wages Newcastle can now pay, they may have trouble offloading players.

3.) 07 Apr 2022 17:02:00
Saint-Maximin is a great player, but I reckon he's too similar to Adama Traore for us to be interested in.

4.) 07 Apr 2022 20:49:21
Saint Maximin may be similar but does have a better goals and assists per game record than Adama.
I'd rather we give Chiquinho, Giles and Gibbs white (and possibly Corbeanu) plus obviously the main choices Podence, Hwang and Neto chances next season though rather than spending big on wingers when we'd be better spending the money on other areas of the team.



24 Nov 2021 18:59:29
Fair few rumours we'll be back in for Botman in January - if Lille don't mess around again we'll be up against a few big clubs for him but in with a good chance supposedly.


1.) 25 Nov 2021 11:52:41
Let's hope so Wolfflea71, him and Kilman together, backed up by Boly, Saiss and Sanderson sounds pretty good to me.



22 Nov 2021 07:48:52
I see the papers and rumour mill are now claiming Hwang would be an upgrade on Origi and so Liverpool will be in for him in Jan. Obviously the reporters don't understand what an option to buy clause is (seeing as we have one in place as part of his loan deal) so unless Leipzig can pay us off Liverpool and City can't buy him.

I can understand rumour sites stating this sort of misconception but when paid journalists who should know better get away with it does make you wonder what they are being paid for!


1.) 22 Nov 2021 08:51:48
We can't force Hwang to sign. If he gets his head turned, bigger signing on fee, wages etc. he can go where Leipzig allow. The agreement only works if player and club agree surely?

2.) 22 Nov 2021 10:17:07
Didn't Hwang join Wolves to get game time, pretty much guaranteed thanks to his performances to date. Surely the option to sign is already a pre-agreed deal between all parties, with Wolves holding the cards.
I can't see Hwang wanting to go back to bench warming duties when he can play every week for us.

3.) 22 Nov 2021 10:22:43
I explained this last week. Fifa rules stipulate that a player can be registered with 3 clubs during a season but can only play for 2. As he made 2 appearances for Leipzig, he wouldn't be able to play for anyone other than us or Leipzig (if they recall him).

We have a deal in place with Leipzig so if another club wants to hijack the deal there are 3 options:

Leipzig pay us a termination compensation fee and then negotiate with the other club.

The other club pay us a compensation fee to step aside.

The other club negotiates directly with us so that we buy the player as per the loan agreement and then immediately sell him on to the other club.

However the fact remains that Hwang cannot play for any other team this season and we will get compensation if Leipzig go back on the loan agreement. Its a win win for us in every circumstance.

4.) 22 Nov 2021 16:12:36
Agreed on the above we hold the cards in this one.

It's happened before player is signed for the option fee then immediately moved on.

He has that super sub quality that would fit a bigger team. Don't see the sense in passing first team football up for that. He would be another shaqiri.

Highly doubt he won't be a Wolves player moving into next season.

5.) 23 Nov 2021 12:10:31
Jas M.very clearly explained. Some sado journalists trying to create "clicks"

6.) 23 Nov 2021 13:21:40
Jas M might recall if it's a similar situation to Tammy Abraham a couple years ago. Nuno wanted him, but he was owned by Chelsea and loaned to Villa. I think Villa were willing to step aside as they couldn't afford him. I think we offered £27mil to Chelsea but the deal broke down. It was probably against FIFA rules.

7.) 23 Nov 2021 20:55:50
I don't think Tammy made an appearance for Chelsea that season so he could have joined us as we would have been the 3rd club he'd be registered with but only the 2nd club he actually played for.

8.) 23 Nov 2021 23:26:50
Jas is correct (as per:) Tammy didn't make an appearance for Chelsea that season, pretty sure we agreed a fee but he was just holding out on the hopes of breaking into the Chelsea first team. And there in lies the challenge Sellars faces. Most young players would prefer to stick with their high wages on the off chance of a top four app rather than take their chances on a mid table gamble. Just one of those things sadly.
As for Hwang I think peeps need to remember anything read in a paper comes with a serious does of salt! Pool could have signed him anytime in the last two years (like us) for a fee of £12-15m! Just paper talk, probs started by his agent as he knows we'll be talking contracts come Jan/June! I love Hwang and think he's an excellent addition but let's remember the graft that Jota and Mane had to put in to get recognition. Mind you I hope we sign him, like I said an excellent addition. It does beg the question as to why Nuno choose Jose instead back in Jan last year?! Me thinks it was an early sign of rebelling against the transfer team, clearly we wanted him all along (we being the club) and now we are all seeing why ??

Was watching Skysports and they had a couple of interviews with some players at the Bobby Robson charity golf event in Portugal, the discussion was about Bale going to LAFC but one of the people interviewed for a Welsh perspective was our old goalie Paul Jones.

Seeing him (who hasn't changed at all in 20 years from what I could see) brought back some great memories of penalty shoot-outs and penalty saves in general.


1.) 28 Jun 2022 02:27:55
That's how most clubs tend to work loan out academy players to gain valuable first team match experience.

2.) 28 Jun 2022 13:16:50
That was meant for Oxleys post above not yours Wolf mate lol, no idea how it ended up here I must have clicked reply on yours by mistake.



08 May 2022 18:47:55
So no hangover or feeling deflated from City then, Wednesday could be a great match as they could be missing Dias (sounds like he's done a hamstring) who would be a big loss for them and I think opens it up for Jimenez to do well against them.


1.) 09 May 2022 00:34:06
Wolves to beat Man City 2-0.

2.) 09 May 2022 07:07:21

We played great at their place this season.

I'm hoping Michael Oliver is ref Wednesday as he don't take crap from the big 6 players and isn't afraid to send their players off if need be.

6.) 09 May 2022 11:39:56
Just sorted out Wednesday night Abbey,
Going to my brothers to watch the match as I pay for his sky TV still.
My bro will be at the mol lol I tried asking for his ticket again but got swift answer no chance again.

I will take advantage of the nice weather and and cut my brothers lawns and do all the weeding.
My brother pays for home help twice a week but they go out for walks and stuff so my brothers housework doesn't get done enough I will clean his house top to bottom too.
Hopefully my good nature will be a good omen for us the wolves agaiant man City.

7.) 09 May 2022 14:20:44

8.) 09 May 2022 17:08:44
Martin Atkinson is the ref for the Man City match. We'll get nothing from him, other than cards.

9.) 09 May 2022 17:35:44
Your joking statto, I'll change my mind and go with phils reverse psychology then and hope for the best. Although maybe they'll want the race to go and give us a fair crack to let Liverpool back into it.
Who knows as ordinary fans.

Cheers Greyleg mate?

Ps I will give another listen to uprising muse when I'm in the right mood me old China ?

There was a stat in the Sunday mirror
Wolves haven't conceded a first half in any of their last 17 away premier league games-the longest such run in the competitions history.

Great isn't to be wolves.

12.) 09 May 2022 19:14:45
Jeez missed out goals.
Haven't conceded any first half goals.

Lol when I do get a stat correct I type wrong.




08 Apr 2022 14:41:37
Has anybody else seen the skysports PL predictor Jones Knows prediction for Fridays game?
It's the most disgusting piece of journalism ever. It's several paragraphs long and mentions all about Newcastles poor run but good home form and predicts they will win without once mentioning who they are playing or any of the oppositions abilities.
The only clue that it's Wolves they are playing is in the betting advert which has been placed in the middle of the article.

It just goes to show Newcastle are now getting "Big 6" treatment as the Jones knows piece has always been big 6 plus london area teams biased.


1.) 08 Apr 2022 15:25:11
I haven't seen it Wolfflea but I'm not surprised, Newcastle, another media favourite, especially now.
I remember Sky's post match analysis of the time we beat Man U at Old Trafford. Basically, a group of wx players aka pundits moaning about Ma U's form for 20 mins.i think I heard the word Wolves once.
It really is a joke

2.) 08 Apr 2022 15:13:55
Jones knows always turns out that Jones knows nothing. It's a promotion. But I get your point wolflea, they know where the money is and comes from.

3.) 08 Apr 2022 18:18:20
Wolves never get any credit. Just this week the media were praising Patrick Vieria as he was doing a wonderful job despite his team being 12 points behind us. Same with Villa when some were saying Gerrard is working miracles at Villa Park and next season they'll be pushing for a top 6 finish.



21 Mar 2022 23:13:25
Two points about Fridays defeat.

1. Leeds defender gets head injury and they use a concussion sub for the rest of the game, Saiss gets a head injury and is allowed (possibly encouraged) to stay on - this is wrong he blatantly wasn't with it when he went back on and the medics should have forced him to come off and be properly assessed (probably for the rest of the match at least - if the concussion protocols are being adhered to).

2. Jimenez got sent off (for a second yellow which was possibly the right decision as he left his foot in late on Meslier - who should have been booked aswell for excessive force/being out of control) - but that still doesn't explain why we completely lost control and panicked when down to 10 men, if we'd continued playing as a team and controlling possession instead of trying to time waste and kick long with no target man then we should still have won, this is surely a lesson we must learn and practice playing when a man down.


1.) 22 Mar 2022 02:20:33
Jiminezs second booking absolutely was not the correct descision, even the top ex referee Dermon Gallagher said it was a incorrect descision.
Kevin Friend needs suspending he is not up to the job, he missed a blatant penalty when he was relegated to the Championship last week too.

2.) 22 Mar 2022 14:41:15
Foe what's its worth without slow mo replay I'd have given pen. But also called Jota offside so I'd have been wrong on both. VAR eh?



18 Jan 2022 23:14:03
Chiquinho signed then - club aren't saying but supposedly £2.9 mill and signed a contract to end of 2026. Still hope that doesn't mean Adama is going this month.

Palhinha is the only one holding up the Fulham deal apparently amid Wolves trying to agree deal with Sporting (choice of us or a team likely to be fighting relegation might be why he's stalling on choosing Fulham!)

Sounds like the complication in our deal is doubling up with the Nunes deal (wouldn't be surprised if we announce both soon and Traore being sold as the Neves sale may take longer so we can't wait for it)

Debbie - his goalscoring record isn't horrible, last season he only played 15 games due to injury and a disagreement with manager so 5 goals and 3 assists isn't that bad although he did much better under Bruno previously.
This one is looking quite likely given Bruno's previous good experiences with him and the Swiss rate him highly.

We're allegedly interested in Keane Lewis-Potter the lad from Hull who plays either out wide or up front, he'd cost more but I'd rather we paid the money for him than Takumino who whilst good I don't think is better or different to what we already have.

Sporting want him to replace Palhinha - so we're linked to both and therefore looking more and more likely we are getting Palhinha.

Excellent post CYRU5.

I'd also add as CB cover we could call on Marques who has excelled for the U23's (according to the U23 manager).

For striker we also have Dadashov returning from loan - didn't have a great time stats wise (2 goals in 23 games) but has looked good coming back from a cruciate ligament tear and may be worth a go next season (especially if does well pre-season).

Has he, where has Bruno revealed his targets? how do you know he hasn't asked for MBappe, Modric, Kessie and Botman (unlikely as they're all spoken for I know but if they were Bruno's targets then blaming the board for not backing him would seem a little crazy). I'd suggest we wait and see what happens in the next few weeks cause all Bruno stated as a fact was he'd like any new players in for pre-season.

Not our fault the guy and/or his agent goes back on an agreement which he definitely had or we wouldn't be looking to take it to arbitration (this one will go to court unless Arsenal pay us off - which I doubt).

Hwang is a good player - his drop off in form was after an injury and I suspect he was back playing before he was fully fit/match sharp and then lost some confidence (he is very much a confidence player as shown by his form at Salzburg).

As a successful business which Fosun most certainly are it's not in their interests to see one of their major investments "fail" so I really don't get the Fosun aren't investing in the club and/or want out rumours.

Yes to some extent Wolves are a commodity but as stated when they took over, to Fosun they are a "Marquee" investment for which they have big plans going forward. At no point have they said they are going to throw loads of money at it, but they have promised to grow their investment and the standing of the club which so far is exactly what they have done.
