I understand we might be looking at Ivan Toney. To be honest I think Ivanhoe would be an improvement on what we have at the moment. What about Pukki, worth a punt? What happened to David Brookes, Bournemouth, could be a good addition at the right price.

I don’t understand why no players make it through the academy, every Club in the Prem (even Man City) have at least one home produced player appearing regularly. Every player in our team has been transferred in and are all full Internationals most who are under performing, any of them play well in a couple of games is worth 50 mill and linked with a move to one of the big six, how can you build a team that’s ever going to challenge at the top end of the table, or is that not the intention any longer. We all know it’s been difficult this season and some Clubs haven’t took it too serious but we can only hope our owners have plans for next season.

I know they don't play regularly but Gibbs White and Otasowie have come through our ranks.

3.) 22 Mar 2021 15:05:46
Gibbs white ain't good enough and otasowie needs a spell out on loan.
We've spent some serious money on u23 and academy players and I think the juries out on the majority of them.

It looks like the recruitment for younger players seems to be with a view of selling them on at a profit. One player I'd like to see getting a chance is Theo Corbeanu.

5.) 24 Mar 2021 16:45:02
The worrying thing about mgw is that it seems that nuno likes him. I personally think he's bad news and not a premier league player by a county mile.

6.) 25 Mar 2021 11:10:45
Have to agree Lexluna. When has he changed a game, introduced from the bench, in the PREM?

7.) 26 Mar 2021 21:27:30
Wolves will never produce talent homegrown unless they sign for Mendez aged 6! Everything comes via him and don't be surprised if Neto is moved on in June as the Mendez pension pot needs topping up!

8.) 27 Mar 2021 09:46:26
Great to see Wozza10 back trolling.

9.) 27 Mar 2021 16:35:55
I think we have some of the workds best kids on our books the future is promising I think.

10.) 27 Mar 2021 17:25:42
What I love about Wozza10 is how precise his facts are. As he says, everything goes through Jorge Mendes. Coady, Boly, Marcal, Kilman, Dendoncker, Otasowie, Hoever, Jonny, Saiss. None are represented by Mendes thereby proving his point that everything goes through him.

11.) 28 Mar 2021 08:34:52
I would love to see Corbeanu given a chance too.

12.) 03 Apr 2021 11:25:56
Academy players make it at clubs like City because they are given prolonged periods in the first team. Their team is good enough to carry a player who is learning how to play at this level. Unfortunately our team isn't.

{Ed077's Note - isn't Foden the only "academy" player to actually "make it" in the City squad. With the investment they've made into their youth setup, 1 is a very low number IMO. They've struggled to hold onto their promising youth players like Sancho, Diaz, etc..

13.) 04 Apr 2021 12:12:53
I'd take one as good as Foden to be fair.



13 Jul 2018 12:25:59
Anybody know the latest on the Zinchenko transfer? Phoned friends in Manchester and they said. a good solid player not unlike De Bruyna. City fans will be sad to see him go. Sounds good to me.


1.) 13 Jul 2018 15:34:34
Looks like Fulham and Newcastle are after him too, so well will see!
Would love Michael Antonio as well personally just as he adds more cover in lots of positions was good as a striker last season before his injury. Also counts towards English registered players.

Does anyone know where the team are staying in the Innsbruck area. I have details of the matches but wonder where they stay and train.

Probably get slated for this but here goes. A lot of fans think Traore should score more goals or put in more crosses. If he's on the wing he can't score and if he's in the middle he can't cross the ball. When he does there is no bugger there anyway. One of Wolves best wingers, the late great Waggy, didn't score many goals but put in great crosses for the Doog or Richards to bang in the goals. What do I know, just an ex springmaker from Redditch.


{Ed001's Note - Salah is the Prem's top scorer, he plays on the wing. Why can't Traore score goals from the wings? I mean other than he doesn't make forward runs to get into position to score, which is his fault.}

1.) 16 Mar 2021 15:52:49
I think everyone agrees he's an enigma and that's the joy in watching him. He's certainly hot to handle and his presence takes defenders away but we've no forward or real attacking midfielder to take up space and compliment him. He can only record assists if someone is there to put it in. As for goals himself its been solo runs away.

2.) 16 Mar 2021 16:33:42
Totally agree but and its a big but. he should be moving into space when he's not got the ball and if he does he could easily be through on goal. twice in last 15 mins last night he stood still so its easy to be marked. He's a very frustrating player and I think with his build and speed he could offer more.

3.) 16 Mar 2021 19:00:08
Liverpool tactics were spot on last night, there were always 3 or 4 players nearest to Traore when he was in an attacking position, they crowded him out. Why couldn’t we do the same number on Liverpool’s most effective players? Jota in space was always going to do a number on us. My thoughts are that we’re not getting enough forward play out of the wing backs and I still think Semedo is a total waste of money. He gambols forward ineffectually and gives the ball away, makes a foul or is usually out of position when a good team counters. Sell him.

4.) 17 Mar 2021 07:33:17
So are those who are slating Traore by saying he isn't setting anything up forgetting it was him who provided the cross from which Alisson fouled Semedo but we didn't get the penalty, or indeed Traore played the ball in for Semedo when he forced a save from Alisson?

5.) 17 Mar 2021 16:24:06
Apparently, he's made 40 chances with no assists. Not sure of the quality of the chances.
Does Moe Salah have three people on him all the time?
It's really Nuno's fault for not adjusting the formation or style of play to take into account all of the extra space elsewhere on the pitch.



12 Feb 2021 12:57:59
I haven't written for a long time as I couldn't think of the right words but I think I have now found them. Bloody Crap
The starting line up was like a team you would send away to a top team hoping to get a 0-0 draw, not a team playing at home against a team that has just had 9 goals banged past them. Where did he think the goals would come from?
Please somebody tell Nuno Silva is not good enough yet.
Has Nuno lost the plot? I do hope not, I don't want him to leave.
Nuno prove me wrong!


1.) 12 Feb 2021 14:52:42
Alpine - good post!



04 Mar 2020 12:43:00
I hear "the Ordinary One" says we did not deserve to win last sunday. I always thought that in football, 3 goals beat 2 goals. To. er.


1.) 04 Mar 2020 21:57:15
Sounds like Mourinho the second best Portuguese manager in the UK.

2.) 05 Mar 2020 09:48:21
I loved Tim Krul's mind-games in the penalty shoot-out last night. The not-so Special One's dream of silverware this season is evaporating rapidly. Harry Kane was on hand, ready to celebrate, but it was the Canaries that ended the night on song.

3.) 05 Mar 2020 13:19:13
There is only ONE special one. NES.



07 Aug 2019 11:52:20
All the talk about the lack of players coming in, let's not forget Fosun bought Thomas Cook. Don't know much about him or where he played but I think he's ABTA registered so that means we get our money back if he's crap.
In Fosun we trust.


1.) 08 Aug 2019 09:28:24
This Thomas Cook bloke can play on either wing has a good engine and is fantastic in the air but his career took a bit of a nose dive last season. 😂.



26 Mar 2019 12:35:30
Like you Billy, very excited. I was not at Wembly for 1980 final but was there in 1974. Stood behing the goal when John Richards banged in the winner and watched Mike Bailey lift the cup. what a captain.
PS Admission 80p. the Good Old days.

I agree DAS loaning Afobe seems a bit strange. If he was not in plans why not send him back. Bonatini OK you don't get much for 10 mill these days. Personally I would have kept Douglas as back up. Why is Bathe still here?

Lexluna noticed you mentioned
Alun Evans in your previous post, good player. I once played against him in a trial for Worcestershire County schoolboys, both trying for inside right position. Needless to say I came second. He later joined Wolves and when sold to Liverpool became the first £100,000 teenager. He later scored a hatrick in one of their European games.

Thanks Noddyboy couldn't remember the game but knew it was the North bank end, where we used to stand. I remember standing there one Saturday afternoon covered in snow watching Wolves best Arsenal 5-1 and laughing at Charlie George's red boots.

I remember Steve Kindon, he was bought from Burnley. Very fast but instead of going round defenders, he just knocked them out of the way, he was a big lad. Before the start of one game during the kickabout, he had a shot in goal, hit the Doog on the head and knocked him out.

I'm sure that flag was in Austria for the pre season friendlies. Certainly gets round a bit.
