According to The Boot Room some Wolves fans are getting excited by links to Coutinho - do they seriously expect us to believe this.

Even if Barcelona were prepared to accept a huge transfer loss just to get him off the wage bill and sell for around £30mill which would be the absolute max we are likely to pay unless we sell someone for 50mill his wages are around 250k a week (or thereabouts depending where you read it) so do they really expect us to believe the club are about to offer someone more than double what the next highest paid player gets and pee off the entire squad! Can't imagine any sensible club doing that and certainly not the Wolves. So they really need to start linking us with players whose wages are south of 150K as that's the most we're likely to pay and only then for someone recognised as higher quality than what we have now.

I see Leao is looking close to a done deal, which is far more believable as his wages and transfer fee would be within our likely budget.

I'd give Oscar Buur a go if Sanderson is deemed to not be ready yet for prem football. He always seems to do well when given a chance. Also would prefer us to bring through youth rather than spend big on an established player who is actually no better than our youngsters.

I'm not accepting that we can't bring in a right back of first team quality. Just wouldn't be good enough.

2.) 02 Sep 2020 12:16:10
Every time Burr or Sanderson have been brought on, they've played well. Why is it other clubs like Man u have no problem bringing someone under twenty on, yet we have to wait until they're ready for a bus pass? Try they. Give them a chance.

3.) 02 Sep 2020 14:35:22
It's one thing to give them a chance, quite another to rely on them.

4.) 02 Sep 2020 19:37:17
Didn't we rely on a certain Mr Neves?

5.) 02 Sep 2020 23:45:35
Spot on Goggs, EVERYONE of these same moaning posters will be asking 'how we let them go' when they do well for another clubs?! Here in lies the irony, everyone of the doubters ask why United, Pool hell even Spurs develop their own players yet we don't?! As Gogg has SO rightly pointed out the answer is VERY simple, those clubs (and more importantly those fans) give those players a chance! They are lucky enough to have managers and player that there own fans trust in (heaven forbid;) Whereas a few on here seem to have already written some of our young prospects off despite NEVER seeing them play a full match!

6.) 03 Sep 2020 23:12:48
We were in the Championship and Neves had already played in the Champions League. Big difference.

Phil - fair play for walking so far for work that's proper dedication.

It does raise an interesting question for all though, how far would people realistically be prepared to walk or cycle to see the Wolves? Assume against a reasonably good opposition (as an extra incentive! if any of us need it)


1.) 28 Sep 2021 07:10:46
Thanks mate.
When I went to the man utd game I walked up town to the mol from wednesfield lol just a baby walk 2 or so miles.
My legs this morning absolutely killing but I'm on the tram as I write this, my hours can be changed should be at work for 7.30. Will stay later today to make up the time.

Ps the amount of people on the tram not wearing a face mask is a very lot.
I am wearing mine.
Sometimes people cease to amaze me it said on tge tanna (recorded voice coming out tge speakers on the tram) can people please wear face masks whilst travelling on the tram.


2.) 28 Sep 2021 11:12:00
Agree Phil but I still think min 4 good signings needed. If raul gets injured we're struggling imo cus even if he's not having a good game he still commands respect from defender's and sorry but I can't say that about fabio. Trouble is unless we're nearer the bottom than the top come January I can't see us doing much in the window apart from maybe recall mgw.

3.) 28 Sep 2021 12:13:59
Lex I think when we played more games up to around December it will be better to see what's needed.
I agree 100% if Jimenez is injured that would be of big concern.
Hoping in the next months Hwang Traore, Trincao start chipping in with goals.
The amount of chances we have created surely this will start to happen.
The Brentford game was massively disappointing as many thought it was a home banker.
Lol its being a wolves fan always biting our nails at times it seems but that's just football I guess.

I have fear about Newcastle and not scared to admit it.
It looks we should win but we seem to do well at St James not so we'll at the mol against Newcastle.
It's a healthy positive genuine fear maybe more so because of the Brentford game.
I think January window we will sign better players if its possible.
Up the wolves.



21 Sep 2021 10:15:48
Just a comment on Traore and his lack of service into the box, he does tend to try and whip crosses over with pace on the ball but does over-hit a lot of them.
So my point is two-fold:
1) Why doesn't he dink more crosses in (the one he did against Brentford Jimenez won the header but put it wide) .

2) Why does Trincao and Moutinho/ Neves run towards the 6 yard box just inside the far post - if one of them stayed out beyond the far post they'd have a chance of still getting a shot in or re-crossing Traore's overhit crosses.
Surely the coaches must see the above which was glaringly obvious in the Brentford game.




01 Sep 2021 23:12:50
I know we were hoping for signings yesterday but if we really are desperate for signings it's still possible to sign players on the free agents list (and no I don't want us to sign Aurier) .

Not many will have sell on value but there's some on there that would at least be good cover and wouldn't cost a fortune in wages either.




30 Aug 2021 23:55:05
Hwang Hee-Chan on TransferMarkt stats 19/ 20 season played 40 goals 16 assists 22 position CF (that includes champions league games aswell as league) - I know that's when he was at Salzburg so was the Austrian leagues but please does that stop the he's not a forward and he can't score debate.

The guy is quality who was rated as better than Haaland when they were together at Salzburg. Yes he's versatile and played for Leipzig in a more attacking midfielder/ winger role (so further plus to the signing) .

Personally can't wait to see him have a few games, settle into the league and Lage's style of play, hopefully then we'll see him at his best and he can really support Jimenez and/ or Silva up front.


1.) 31 Aug 2021 06:56:02
Yes my thinking is the same,
For an attacking player this wolves team is a perfect stage to express your attacking ability.

2.) 31 Aug 2021 11:07:08
I'm very happy with Hee-Chan. He was MOTM against Liverpool once.

3.) 31 Aug 2021 11:52:54
He must be good as he was wearing a Louis Vuitton sweatshirt at the Man U game.



24 Aug 2021 22:35:38
So we've found our new source of goals, Saiss and Dendoncker!

Oh sorry they're both useless and need selling (I forgot) .

Hopefully we'll have more confidence going into the weekend and get a few more (should be a good game with the way both teams have started the season) .


1.) 25 Aug 2021 16:44:24
Dendonker didn't score?

2.) 25 Aug 2021 16:55:16
Scorers were Saiss, Podence, Trincao and Gibbs White.
But every play has played brilliantly so far in our first 3 competetive matches.

3.) 25 Aug 2021 19:47:28
Doh posted this straight after sky reporter said Dendoncker had scored the 2nd then they showed the goal and it was obviously Podence (only nearly a foot difference in height! ) . Oh well poor guy probably only used to covering "The big six".

I'm with TFIOG Traore is one of a kind (other players have pace, other players have power but none have as much of both as Traore) . Plus for someone who is 5'9 - 5'10 he wins his fair share of headers and has great dribbling skills. I'd be disappointed to sell for £75mill but won't be surprised if we have to accept well below that if he doesn't sign a contract extension.
For all those who don't rate him how often does he get you on your feet as he goes past players? His end product is improving he does now look up so is likely to improve further in that respect so I for two would be sad to see us sell him.

Jas - to be fair Trincao was also being forced out by his club for monetary rather than playing reasons. Barcelona could be a good shop to buy in in January aswell.

Until we are back in a European competition our issue will always be finding players who will want to come to us and are good enough to improve the first 11 (you and Jeff are right it's not necessarily about money) .

I see the clickbaits are linking us to Insigne (age and wages suggest that's not our usual profile for recruitment so I would rate as unlikely) .

Not yet but from a few sources it sounds like him and his agent want to insert a release clause which is holding things up (either the club don't want one or think the fee proposed is too low) .

Jordao is a good little player, similar to Podence but more suited to a central/ attacking midfield role. He has had a lot of injuries but was more highly rated at Lazio than Pedro was when they were there together. Seen him play and he has good vision and passing aswell as being good on the ball.

Hwang Hee Chan would be a great signing - gave the Liverpool defence including Van dyke huge problems a couple of seasons ago in champions league, leipzig lost but he was by far the star over the two legs.

Other than first season back in premier league under Nuno where we were given credit for good performances and results against the top teams we do seem to be largely ignored or under-estimated by the big name pundits - not necessarily a bad thing to go under the radar a little though as long as players we try to sign (and their agents) notice the potential of the club.

All the best rated - just come out of isolation having had it myself same time as my son so we suffered together (was also very tired with cough and cold symptoms but the tiredness was the worst) . Little lad was better than me even though I'd been double jabbed and it was probably him that brought it home from school (but was very relieved he was ok with it) .

Agreed Rated - just hope RB don't try and find a way to raise it now he's doing well.

I'm probably going to get slated for this but I've watched the Newcastle goal a few times now and I don't think it's a foul on Sa, both players are entitled to go for the ball and both touch it but then crash into each other.
If that was the other end and Raul went for the ball we'd all be up in arms if a free kick was given. Not that I think the ref was very good or that we haven't had more than our fair share of bad decisions against us - just this time I think the ref was right.

Assist statistics can be misleading as they rely on the person on the end putting the ball in net, if Traore had been sharper in first 3 games Neves would have had at least 3 additional assists this season. Also some with very high assist stats have been lucky as they play with the likes of Mo Salah who takes a pass and then makes a shooting/ scoring opportunity out of nothing - bit like Sa getting an assist with what was purely a punt upfield towards Raul.
