Does anyone else think that we are going to sell TRAORE as we are being linked to wingers like Lemar and Costa from Juventus who are interested in Traore with a swap plus fee possibly.

baza

1.) 24 Sep 2020 14:22:42
I highly doubt he goes this season. Still got long deal. Price would be outrageous for any team to match. Next year could be a different matter.

Let him develop with another great season.


2.) 24 Sep 2020 14:41:23
Who sets the fee? Jeff will sell for 20 m I heard! Lol now slate me again!


3.) 24 Sep 2020 16:00:38
Give it a rest Wozza mate you're not even funny anymore.


4.) 24 Sep 2020 17:43:23
Traori will go soon 45 mill, and maybe Vinagra to balance the books, Thomas Lemar on is way to wolves exciting player,
douglas costa not on to old 30 mill plus a joke.


5.) 24 Sep 2020 17:56:35
Traore and Jimenez could bring in shedloads of money. If a big enough offer comes in, one or both could sell, or neither. At present, transfer fees have dropped due to C.V., but as the transfer window closure date nears a team may be desperate to bring top players in, and might pay what we want. I trust Nuno. He will have a plan for any eventuality. Buying and selling is evolving the squad, which Liverpool spent 30 years doing. So far we have had the best transfer window by far, and it's not over yet.


6.) 24 Sep 2020 18:55:17
Selling an Adama to bring in Lemar makes no sense. We won't do that.


7.) 24 Sep 2020 19:39:13
Don't honestly see us selling any first team players now. If true Lemar on a loan to possibly buy would not be a bad deal. His skill seems to have been hiding in Madrid. If he can perform like he did before he could be great. Scary up front then. Though I'm quite happy with Podence at this present time.


8.) 24 Sep 2020 20:02:43
No nothing about the validity of the rumour or its source but noticed that Donyell Malen scored twice for PSV in Europa Cup tonight!


9.) 24 Sep 2020 21:18:42
Firstly I feel that Traore is staying. Douglas Costa would be a waste of money as his best days have gone and is a big injury worry. But Thomas Lemar. It is not what he can do for the club now, but what Nuno could get out of him. That would be an amazing signing if given time under Nuno.


10.) 24 Sep 2020 21:20:37
Another observation from Europa Cup ties tonight. No Palhinha in Sporting Lisbon squad, despite fact they are talking about anew improved contract!


11.) 24 Sep 2020 22:15:20
Ecosse. I thought we would have had him a couple of weeks ago. Looked just right for us a midfield enforcer do the dirty work. You know what I mean engine room business. But seemed they didn't want to spend that much.


12.) 24 Sep 2020 22:17:36
Douglas Costa was an 82nd minute sub for Juventus in their opening league game BUT I’d be more interested in the other sub who joined the match at the same time: centre back Demiral. We were apparently interested earlier in window when it looked like Juve were trying to offload Rugani. Demiral is right sided centre back, a Turkish international and only 22 years old. Missed matches last year with an injury but a huge prospect.


13.) 24 Sep 2020 22:32:37
I'm confused Rated mate, cause from what I've seen Wozza has never even been funny?! Well not intentionally anyway! 🤣 Joking a side we ain't selling Traore and we certianly ain't selling him for £20m, cause we bought him for £18m! For all the moaning (me included) we could/ will make a profit of around £30m from Jota so if that translates for Adama then we'll be nearer the £50m mark! Mind you he isn't leaving this window either way! 🤣.


14.) 24 Sep 2020 22:53:59
Haha Bullysboy mate I was being kind to him :P.


15.) 25 Sep 2020 11:56:23
Part of the strategy at Wolves is to generate annual profits to keep in the clear with financial rules. Clubs are only allowed to make losses up to a certain amount. Traore cost £18 mil I think. Selling him for, say, £60 mil makes a real profit of £42 mil. If we reinvest £25 mil into a young player there's still £17 mil left over to go into the Profit and Loss account in our books. It doesn't matter how much money Fosun have, we need to make annual profits to keep on the right side of financial rules. Bigger clubs don't all have this problem. We are growing both financially and in footballing terms, so unpopular decisions are all part of this process. Call us a selling club if you will, but we are also a growing club.


16.) 25 Sep 2020 12:18:42
Yellows tone as we haven't spent nothing yet there's nothing to balance.


17.) 25 Sep 2020 13:28:29
My thoughts are the transfer deals for all clubs are complicated and structured to get around the ffp rules. I don't think it's as clear cut as we may believe. I maybe totally wrong but I could well be correct.
I don't see signs of us selling Traore even though the speculation of us after Costa and lemar.
What I do think though anything is possible as we don't know anything until it happens. (or that man up the tree in Compton gives us a scoop)
We didn't see fabio silva coming and us selling Jota to Liverpool to name but a few.
If it is possible an attacking box to box midfielder in the same world class bracket of Semedo. (i know that most likely will be out if reach)
I am not sure if a quality cb is needed at this stage of our progression. last season we did have an above average defence.
Clearly we have good defence but wanting to break into the top 6 once we are settled all transfer business done new players bedded in I'm confident we will be back to that hard team to break down with quality attacking we will have a good crack at top 6.


18.) 25 Sep 2020 14:00:21
Ross Barkley could be an option. (attacking box to box midfielder)
I would be happy if we signed him. Young English and Nuno would surely get him close or if not up to his full potential.
The signing of Semedo has surely made other world class players take notice we are a club going places.


19.) 25 Sep 2020 14:57:41
Deep + Phil
I have detailed how FFP works taking the numbers from Wolves accounts, (next ones due next month), in a previous post on this site. This is because it was all the rage on the site a few weeks ago. You do not have to worry!
With respect to the dealings you describe Deep it is much better than that!
Traore bought for 18m 2+ years ago is now in the books for sub 9 - assuming a 4 year deal so profit on a 60m sale is over 51m
Buying a player for 25 on a 4 year deal costs 6.25m per year plus wages.
Consequently after selling Jota, Costa and Doherty this year our profits on players is huge
Doherty in books at 0 so £13.5m profit
Jota bought 2 + years ago for €14m say £13m in books at £6m so profit assuming sold for £40m = £34m
Costa bought for £13m 3.5 years ago thus in books for say 2 sold for 16 profit = 14
ie total profit north of £60m
Given these profits unless the virus hits TV revenues (even if we we have to play the entire season without gate money) I don't think FFP is an issue this year or probably in the next three!
Big clubs do have to adhere to same rules but as you say their much higher commercial revenues mean that it isn't as hard for them as it is for us!


20.) 25 Sep 2020 15:26:21
All
Can I ask why no one else on this site, (or certainly not many of you), seems to rate Traore?
Last season he beat more defenders than anyone else in the league by a country mile ( I think he may be 2nd only to Hazard in the all time season record? ) he had the 7th most assists and created the 14th most big chances. All of this whilst only playing just over 2,600 mins out of a possible 3,420 and for a side who play in a fairly defensive style not suited to improving his stats!
He is also still young and clearly improving fast - cf stats over the last few years were he was merely an ordinary player not the exceptional one I think he is and it seems all bar wolves fans do
I have been watching Wolves over 50 years and no one has been a true world class player in that time - Robbie Keane the closest (thoughts? )
Traore is not that yet - indeed Salah is a better RW than him in the Prem ( not sure there are any others mind) but he is still progressing and over the next couple of years he might, and I accept it is a might, become World class.
If we wanted to sell him we would be killed in the rush as every big side in the world would want him and the fee would be - even in todays market- not far short of £100m.
Maybe as an old fella I have gone over the top but if you haven't lived through the days of losing to Aldershot and Southend you probably don't appreciate how great it is today
Nuno has performed miracles and Traore is one of them.
I'm looking forward to us genuinely challenging at the very top of European football, as we did in my dad's day, in the near future and to do that you need to keep the exceptional players not sell them early in their evolution for others to benefit from.
We don't need to sell for FFP and in my view shouldn't
Sorry about the rant
Keep safe.


21.) 25 Sep 2020 15:29:14
Good post Thefutureisoldgold.
I find ffp too deep and complicated but you explain it in the clearest way and nice1 for that.
FWAW.


22.) 25 Sep 2020 16:10:51
My thoughts on Traore.
I think his stats for last year in assists was up there in the best in the league. there's no questioning. that. Before the man city away game Traore was hit and miss beat 2 3 or 4 players and hit the cross or shot in row Z but Nuno has done wonders with him and is getting the best out of his end product. I think the time and effort by nuno his team and of Traore we need him for at least another season.
If Traore maintains form with his end product we will have a worldy.
Consistency is the key Traore hasn't had 2 3 seasons being consistent that's the key question I think.


23.) 25 Sep 2020 16:27:17
Robbie Keane was the closest to my boyhood hero Steve Bull. Everytime bully had the ball the southbank would surge and my dad in the then John ireland stand would be on the edge of his seat R. Keane was the only one that has been like bully for me since.
Thefutureisoldgold did you follow wolves in the 1960 fa Cup final win.
Norman Deeley used to coach my football team when playing as a kid.
2020 minus 1960 is 60 years I know but I just proud that Norman Deeley was talking to my dad about all things wolves whist I was put through my paces.
Maybe because I have posted this we will win the fa Cup and Jimenez scores a brace I'm dreaming again.


24.) 25 Sep 2020 17:25:43
Phil
Really appreciate your posts.
Agree re Traore - end product not there yet and certainly no track record ( last year was a break out season) .
I have discussed end product before and a lot of it is to do with the fact that when he gets to the by line and looks up there is Jimenez and 3 or 4 defenders - not surprisingly lots of crosses don't come to much.
2 things there - Wolves tactics mean we didn't players in the box - even Jota who was meant to be the 3rd forward was often absent (? ) . Hopefully we will be more progressive this year?
and - he secondly he needs to cut inside sometimes rather than always attack the corner flag - think Seville!
No started going in mid 60s - Mike Bailey, John Holsgrove, Phil Parkes, the Doog and Dave Wagstaffe featured. John Farrington scored the first goal I saw being scored I think.


25.) 25 Sep 2020 17:51:57
Thefutureisoldgold.
Started 67 I think or 68 memory and all that! Wagggy used to play a superb early ball into the box. Great team back then!


26.) 25 Sep 2020 17:58:07
Sound Thefutureisoldgold it's nice to respond with my thoughts.
And stories with anything about wolves by myself by you and anyone else.
Your points on Traore I agree with.
In time Traore and the team have a great chance of getting better.
It would be good to see Traore being the first name on the team sheet having more assists and goals. It's exciting to see how it goes Sunday at West ham it could be the start of what's to come even better.


27.) 25 Sep 2020 18:55:11
Ken Thefutureisoldgold I can't think of his name but he stopped playing football to be a johava witness was it Knowles? I remember my dad telling me he was world class.


28.) 25 Sep 2020 18:57:13
Ken snap
to be honest it got even better early 70s Doog Curran and Gould became Doog and Richards and although we were never more than 4th- wow 4th!
Cup runs as well UEFA Cup Final, League cup win, FA cup semi final (lost to Leeds) .


29.) 25 Sep 2020 19:16:23
futureisoldgold, good explanation on the finances mate. I almost feel sorry for SQ, he's always talking relegation. There's a hell of a lot going on at Wolves on all fronts. This is surely the most exciting time since the days of Stan Cullis when we were probably the most famous team in the world. I too rate Traore very highly. He's potentially the most exciting Wolves player since the 1950s if his development continues. He's the proverbial rough diamond but Nuno knows how to polish him.


30.) 25 Sep 2020 19:16:28
Phil and Thefutureisoldgold.
Phil it was Peter, his brother I think Cyril played for Spurs. Yes he was on the way to being one of the best players this country has produced!
Those games I was at most of them!


31.) 25 Sep 2020 19:28:02
Phil - yes Peter Knowles - brother of Cyril ( Spurs legend) .
He left the game v early perhaps 23 in the mid to late 60s I think and to be honest I have no memory of him as a player but I do remember the gnashing of teeth at the loss of real prospect!


32.) 25 Sep 2020 20:07:51
Thanks Ken and Thefutureisoldgold.
Ha ha floyd Streete Jackie gallagher Jon paskin ally Robertson when he looked old enough to be a grandad no much of a comparison to the doog richards and so on.


33.) 25 Sep 2020 20:11:30
Deep - Exactly!


34.) 25 Sep 2020 20:27:27
Peter Knowles became a Jehovah's Witness that's why he quit. Was a window cleaner still lives (if he's still alive) in Wolverhampton I believe.


35.) 25 Sep 2020 22:01:43
Phil
Loved Floyd - he just needed a set of wheels as when he got there he was "effective". Did you go to Sherpa fan final?
Couldn't get a ticket at Wolves end so stood - think it was still
standing at Burnley end.
Bully obviously the main man but Mutch and Dennison made a top class front three for Div 4 as it was and Div 3 and even Div 2.
What loyalty from Bully - never played in Prem but stuck by us!
Ps met Gary Bellamy, also in that team, at a charity do a few years back - what an incredibly nice man.
Strongly suspect I was the only Wolves fan, well the host introduced me to him as such, there and I must have bored him rigid chatting about those days but if he was bored he masked it v well - impressive!


36.) 25 Sep 2020 22:28:34
Unfortunately for me my parents had paid for my school holiday in Austria so I couldn't go to the sherpa van. My brother my dad all my friends and there dad's in the street all went to Wembley in a minibus. I rang my mum from Austria for the result.
You mentioned aldershot in an earlier post I went away to aldershot on the special train in 89 the same day as the Hillsborough tragedy. I was nearly 16 years old.
My brother went to a meet and greet bully and Mutch at the Cleveland a few years back. Our bro has a photo with him in the middle of Mutch and bull. I have met Andy Thompson briefly I was shy and just stuttered alright your my idol ha ha.
You're bang on the money if you have seen wolves play the lowest small teams like aldershot Newport County and what we have now its no wonder people like us are excited and me coming across as being extremely positive.


37.) 25 Sep 2020 22:46:03
Mark kendall the southbank used to sing kendall show us ya bum (the other word for bum beginning with a)
Kendall kendall show us ya bum
And he used to pull his shorts down it was so funny.
I used to like kendalls half volley low goal kicks pinpoint onto Andy Mutch's head for the flick on to bully.
Great Times as a young teenager for me.


38.) 26 Sep 2020 00:38:11
Re Aldershot was that the day the pitch was like a swimming pool - lost 3-0?


39.) 26 Sep 2020 11:22:29
Deep Throat. My first game was the last game of the 67-68. Beat Spurs 2-1 so you can work out exactly how many highs and lows have followed since.


40.) 26 Sep 2020 11:17:05
What a great reaction from you all to my original question about Traore this is what this site is all about thank you all for your responses.


41.) 26 Sep 2020 11:52:20
Talking all things Aldershot: George Berry, one of my Wolves favourites, finished his playing career there.
AND not my first game but the first game my Grandad, on a visit from Glasgow, saw the Wolves. Night game and a 9 - 0 victory over Fulham, with Norman Deeley scoring four. Fulham were without Johnny Haynes but a number of top names in their team. Unsurprisingly my grandad was only mildly impressed. What makes that ever more ironic, is that he was a Partick Thistle season ticket holder, where I can confirm the staple diet on offer at Firhill was no where near what he saw that momentous night.


42.) 26 Sep 2020 12:51:42
Sound baza and good to read your Post SQ.
re aldershot 15th April 1989 we won 1-2 I remember bully scoring.


43.) 26 Sep 2020 13:09:35
re Ecosse wolf me and my brother used to laugh at George Berry's haircut when we were little kids when we didn't know anything.


44.) 26 Sep 2020 13:48:08
My favorite player has always been for sheer fun and entertainment was Steve Kindon. You never knew what was going to happen when he got the ball, I don't really think he did either! I'm pretty sure our record buy at the time 100k from Burnley I think. (The fee that is I know he was from Burnley) .


45.) 26 Sep 2020 16:13:05
Steve Kindon stories: one match and he was sub. Ball went out for a Wolves throw on opposite side to the bench. Opportunity to Kindon on. With his normal enthusiasm he started running across the pitch to take up his left wing position. From about half way across he started shouting for the ball and pointing to his chest. As he got nearer the far touch line, the throw in was taken straight to Kindon’s chest. It was spot on, hit his chest and rebounded with speed about six foot above the head of the thrower, for a throw in to the opposition.
His first game against Wolves after he returned to Burnley from ourselves saw him star in a Burnley victory. In his post match interview, he was asked about leaving and then returning to Burnley. He replied that when originally at Burnley as a young player, his doctor advised that he take a break from football; so he came to Wolves for a few years!


46.) 26 Sep 2020 18:52:12
Ecosse, typical of him. Became a very good after dinner speaker. I lived in Warrington for many years where he's from. Lots of great stories about him from people who knew him. Not a bad Rugby League player either when he was young. Hardly surprising he was built like a brick outhouse!


 

 

29 Jan 2018 11:40:06
Fully expect Afobe to sign on loan with an option to buy. I hope he comes with a better attitude than when he left, but he is a proven striker at this leval so let's give him a chance.

baza

1.) 29 Jan 2018 12:10:53
not the player I would have back, his attitude is still the same that's why eddie howe wants him gone. thanks but no thanks.


2.) 29 Jan 2018 12:21:27
Apparently Bournemouth aren’t keen on a loan deal and want cash.


3.) 29 Jan 2018 12:32:11
Get him in! 20 odd goals for us in the season he played, he will get chance after chance with the players we've got now! It's a no brainier for me and it will definitely assure us promotion! 👍 Eddie Howe comes across as a smarmy git who is up his own arse! One of them guys who's got a face u want to punch!


4.) 29 Jan 2018 12:43:18
Question is can he reproduce his past form for us?
I personally don't want him back but if he does return and gets his head down and the goals to get us up then I guess he'd be forgiven by me and by many for his past behaviour.


5.) 29 Jan 2018 13:14:11
Think we only want loan Bournemouth want a sell
I think there maybe a few teams in for him
For me a no brained get him in he will score goals and see what happens in the summer it's win win on loan.


6.) 29 Jan 2018 13:18:41
IMO I think he would be the perfect signing for this team, especially when teams press us high he would have plenty of space in behind for Neves etc to pick him out. He hasn’t done it at Bournemouth but I put that down to a lack of creativity in their midfield and not his lack of ability. As for his so called attitude problem last time he was here I don’t agree. He had lost his wingman in Sako, they broke their promise to replace him and he could see we were not going up any time soon under Morgan etc. He had Premier League ambitions so it was the right move at the tim. As for his performances on the pitch yes he is a professional but he is also human. He was being played in a number 10 and not up too where he is best and i’m Pretty sure people on here have days when they don’t think a change in work location is needed. Make it happen Jeff! A massive yes from me!


7.) 29 Jan 2018 13:42:56
Put it another way if he comes he knows he has to produce he's in last chance saloon of making it in the big time with a big club in waiting
It's down hill otherwise.


8.) 29 Jan 2018 14:23:31
I hoped for someone better than Afobe, but he's a good enough player and the team he'll be returning to is very different from the one he left. Hard to see him keeping Leo out of the side but if Costa or Cav need to be dropped then I see him as sub for Leo, who would presumably start if that happened.


9.) 29 Jan 2018 14:25:23
I don't blame him for wanting to leave but he was being paid thousands per week to do his job and his sulking around the pitch was completely unprofessional. If you want a move surely you bust a gut to earn one not spit your dummy out. Yes promises were broken but he behaved appallingly instead of getting on with it in until he could go. No Thanks! COYW.


10.) 29 Jan 2018 14:29:45
He's already split us fans so God knows what he would do to the dressing room! COYW.


11.) 29 Jan 2018 14:35:26
People disagreeing about Afobe, don't CUT YOUR NOSE OFF TO SPITE YOUR FACE? His signin would 100% cement our Promotion 👍.


12.) 29 Jan 2018 14:47:43
Afobe for me, no thanks. As for 100% promotion PT, there's only one thing in life guaranteed.
If there were certainties there wouldn't be bookmakers.


13.) 29 Jan 2018 14:56:33
Can’t see all the big deal about afobe coming back to us wat have we got to lose? He’s the one who’s got somthing to prove the team we have he will get goals get us over the finishing line win win for us both we get the goals and cover to Finish the season he gets to showcase his skills for another team give the lad another crack at the mol.


14.) 29 Jan 2018 15:25:53
Afode has a point to prove feel he's not been given that chance since his move to Bournemouth, so if he comes get behind him and watch him banging those goals in.


15.) 29 Jan 2018 15:40:07
Its a big fat YES from me. Nuno is the key here, he will get the best out of him for sure. He'll score for fun in this team.


16.) 29 Jan 2018 16:03:47
Two things guaranteed wolfie22? Death and taxes!

19.) 29 Jan 2018 19:05:43
Yes mate, I believe you.
My lips are sealed.

Of course, I'll support Afobe if he comes but he wouldn't be my choice. Can't see anyone here who could take us to the next level.
Either Nuno is happy to go with what we've got OR Uncle Jorge has another ace up his sleeve.


20.) 29 Jan 2018 19:17:37
I'm all for Afobe on loan with option to buy. Probably the best striker we've had since Keane and Bull.

What do we want. instant impact

Afobe knows the Championship, knows the surroundings and has something to prove. Literally could sign him now and start him against Sheffield United this weekend and the teams stronger. Chips in with 5-10 goals and we're laughing.

I also believe Nunos style suits Afobe with the interchanging front 3.

If not Afobe, get Grabben. Promotion awaits.


21.) 30 Jan 2018 20:37:58
I'd rather go for Ben Brereton from Forest, can see him going far. Worth a punt I reckon.


 

 

18 Dec 2017 18:28:21
Tim Spiers saying that some of the players are jaded and need a rest, but who do you bring in who are has good? . Costa and N, Diaye are the only ones who are of the same standard, Price Batth Enobakhare are not good enough, we need to strengthen the squad asap in my opinion.

baza

1.) 18 Dec 2017 19:22:49
Bring in Batth, Hause and Miranda to rotate the central defenders. Vinagre and Douglas rotate at LB. Marshall at RB as cover for Doherty. N'Diaye, Price, Saiss, Rohan, Gibbs White and Neves for CM. Marshall, Costa, Cav, Jota and Zyro (probably not) for the wings. Bright and Ennis to replace Bonatini. We have strength in depth but really do need a proven striker as back up.


2.) 18 Dec 2017 20:40:02
Agree with Baza. Waiting for window to open. I think 2 strikers needed. Bonatini has done great but no one could keep it up all season. Perhaps Costa in for Cav on Saturday.


3.) 18 Dec 2017 21:33:13
Batth was shocking when he came on. He couldn't even take it on his chest.


4.) 18 Dec 2017 22:53:47
Would try Cav at centre forward for the Ipswich match with Bright on the right and Costa on the left. Rest Saiss and bring in N'Daye to rough it with the tractor boys. The rest would be useful for the dropped players and they could be on the bench if things go wrong. Let's use the squad which will help to assess transfer window needs.


 

 

31 Aug 2017 21:48:07
Just like most fans disappointed no striker yet, but we are still have a better team than the past few seasons. Please do not give up we will be ok.

baza

1.) 31 Aug 2017 22:44:26
Well said. Just disappointing we gave our strike force (a not very productive one. ) away. Looks like we need to keep Bonatini on his feet!


 

 

25 Aug 2017 14:08:59

2.) 25 Aug 2017 14:56:17
£1 million? Isn't that a little low. Are we trying to just clear the wage bill?


3.) 25 Aug 2017 15:05:25
We need to sign a midfielder then only got price as back up can't see prince getting a chance.


4.) 25 Aug 2017 15:23:46
If we want to get rif of him it sounds like an okay deal but if we don't want to lose him 1 mill is low.


5.) 25 Aug 2017 15:40:11
Clerly Conor Ronan has shown himself to be a considerably better footballer than Edwards and so Nuno has decided to go with Price and Ronan as back up for Saiss and Neves.


6.) 25 Aug 2017 15:48:22
We have Ronan too bewdley who proved how much better he is than Edwards on Wednesday night.


7.) 25 Aug 2017 16:19:49
We still need one. Maybe Coady is cover too?
I wouldn't mind a box to box type as we don't have one one the squad. Like a Rae or Ince.


8.) 25 Aug 2017 16:33:51
Just saw Graham is possibly going to Fulham on loan.

I think Nuno only wants 2 players per position.


9.) 25 Aug 2017 17:19:27
Yer having talks. thank him 'but its clear he can't play the 1 touch nuno wants.


10.) 25 Aug 2017 17:14:20
Only 2 could be very dangerous given the amount of games.


11.) 25 Aug 2017 17:34:14
Not surprised about Edwards as he likes to run forward from midfield rather than pass it through and in my opinion that meant Bod and Dicko didn't get many goals last season we can see this season the strikers are scoring goals because of Nuno's style

Plenty of cover as Coady can shift to MF and Price is a natural one for one for Saiss

Odd that Graham might be moving away does this mean Costa is definitely staying?


12.) 25 Aug 2017 18:55:24
Maybe Graham is moving because we have too many wingers at the club. Cav, Costa, Marshall, Zyro, Graham. Nuno obviously likes playing with attacking wing backs meaning that Douglas, Doherty, Vinagre and Ofusu Ayeh will play further forward. Rather than let Graham waste away on the bench, let him go and get regular game time elsewhere and prove to Nuno he's got what it takes to come back and succeed.


13.) 25 Aug 2017 19:15:12
Not sure sending Graham out on loan is a good idea. Good player, gets plenty of assists. Think it would be better to give him game time here rather than have him playing for a rival.


14.) 25 Aug 2017 19:44:56
Ronan and Price aren't the back up there's another central midfielder incoming.


15.) 25 Aug 2017 20:16:42
Is that a defensive midfielder Wolf?


16.) 25 Aug 2017 20:16:56
But if he's not in Nuno's plans surely he'll benefit from playing regularly elsewhere.


17.) 25 Aug 2017 20:33:39
Dave done a good job for those 9 years but he can't pass a ball to save his life and that won't work in our new system.


18.) 25 Aug 2017 20:56:57
Good luck Dave Edwards his goals helped keep us up last year but time to move on I think there's a striker midfielder and a left back on the way with in the next week.

I think it is time for the fans to stop criticising Silva Semedo and take a closer look at Traore no goals in 12 months I can not remember his last assist and yet some fans want to give him man of the match, It is obvious he wants away and I would sell him so we can bring in players who want to play for our club and will contribute more in a game. I hope 2021 will be a better year for all of us.

Superb from Agent Allardyce! Hilarious own-goal, literally not had a kick, otherwise! COYW.


2.) 29 Dec 2020 22:48:51
Hard to get an assist when there's no one to play the ball too! I agree he'll never be prolific, he's just not got the composure. He's not been good but he's improving. Also here's an interesting one for you, end of season stats on sky, guess the ONLY Wolves player making the Prem stats for 2020?! You guessed it fastest player Adama, most successful dribbles in a match also Adama (comfortably on that one as well)! Just food for thought 👍.


3.) 30 Dec 2020 06:41:59
And most fouled?


4.) 30 Dec 2020 10:04:49
Bully they're useless stats though. What's the point of being the fastest with the most successful dribbles if you do nothing with it?! Salah has finished behind him in both those stats, who would you rather have?! He's just one of a number of players you'd want in front of Traore. I'd go as far as to say I could name a winger from every side in the league apart from Fulham, Sheffield United and West Brom I'd take ahead of Traore.


 

 

22 Dec 2020 18:01:12
Dues no one in the backroom staff show the players the game afterwards and show them how poor they have played and some of the mistakes they make. What do Boly Marcel Samedo Neves Moutinho Dendoncker and Traore all have in common this season NO GOALS and NO ASSISTS, and our attacking play is to slow and our passing is to negative so if the coaching staff want to know what the problem is with our team read this. or show them some videos of Liverpool.

baza

1.) 23 Dec 2020 07:27:54
Need to cash in on some of our 'dead wood', before it's too late! Primarily Boly, Neves and Traore ; 3 months ago Real Madrid, Liverpool and Barcelona were, reportedly, interested in Adama now its LEEDS! Which makes me think, given the way that Leeds play, ain't he the last player they need? Trust in Nuno FWAW.


2.) 23 Dec 2020 08:05:07
Agree that we need an upgrade in a number of positions. Tweak to our system requires different attributes, primarily ability to carry the ball and move with speed. This identifies individuals who won’t be able to adapt. Traore however is not one. He has those attributes in abundance. Leeds interest in him is interesting and I have no doubt that they would find a way to maximise his impact as they have done with many players who came through the Championship.
I am frustrated watching him do the same thing every time he receives the ball. Collect the ball, stand still and face up the defender/ defenders, feint to move and then burst down the outside and deliver or don’t deliver a cross, the destination of which is anyone’s guess.
Presumably, he is being told to do this. He has far more to offer than that which we are asking of him and that goes for some others, : Neves and Dendonker being the most obvious. Every team has a style but ours now appears to be limiting our ability to win games.


3.) 23 Dec 2020 10:20:43
Agreed-I think Traore will go though I am a fan of his and the transfer fee will go to bring in a new face or two. Trouble is many other clubs are looking to do the same thing. Origi has been mentioned on the forum and I think he could do a job for us, he’s had limited opportunities at Liverpool but done well when he has played and scored some important goals, he is also a Belgian international and only 25.I’m not his agent honest 😀. Also the midfield dilemma is baffling, all fans can see the problem let’s hope management can sort it out. We Will get there! Merry Christmas to all from the Valley’s.


4.) 23 Dec 2020 11:01:13
Think everyone in agreement we need to invest in the transfer market in January. But with the large outlay in the summer are Fosun willing to back us again, cos, afterall, we haven't improved in any position despite amount spent. Another thing: who is willing to come to us the way we are playing and no possibility of Euro football any time soon?


5.) 23 Dec 2020 13:15:01
Christmas Greetings came out wrong! Merry Christmas to All, From the Valleys 😀.


6.) 23 Dec 2020 15:20:38
I would sell Traore and get Origi Maitland Niles and Simakam that should sort us out. Can I wish all the Wolves supporters and there families a happy xmas and a safe new year.


7.) 23 Dec 2020 19:30:02
Interesting thoughts but not just a 20 goal a season striker needed, (like they are 10 a penny) but also a commanding midfield player in my opinion. In reality probably the 2 hardest positions to fill. Happy christmas everyone, stay safe and let's hope for a significantly better 2021 for us all.

I wonder if Nuno will put Nevas on the bench because of the yellow card situation and keep him for the Fulham game, then if he gets suspended he will miss Reading Leeds but would be back for Villa,

baza

1.) 20 Feb 2018 22:08:55
To be honest I'd play my best team and that includes Neves, getting 3 points tomorrow is more important than worrying about Neves getting a two game ban. Get the points on the board! Win tomorrow and I think 5 more wins out of 13 will get us promotion 👍.


2.) 20 Feb 2018 22:09:32
Probably not but might take him off on 60 minutes especially if they are trying to get him booked.


 

 

02 Feb 2018 10:14:48
Which front three will start the game? Nuno now has some great chouices. I would start with Bonatini Jota Cavaleiro with Costa Afobi on the bench. At least we now have players who can come on from the bench and change the game. What do other fans think? .

baza

1.) 02 Feb 2018 10:40:58
I think that nuno will play the same side as Ipswich. There is no need to change but he will makes subs at 60 mins with afobe coming on for probably costa. I think he will end up with cav afobe and jota. I.


2.) 02 Feb 2018 11:18:51
To be honest I hope he starts Cav Afobe and Jota. I know we won our last game but there has been a lack of goals recently so let's start with Afobe👍 Really buzzing for tomorrow, be better still if villa Derby and Cardiff have all dropped points before we kick off 👍.


3.) 02 Feb 2018 14:55:00
I'd start Afobe as well there no place for sentiment anymore and Afobe is the best striking option we've got Bonatini and Costa off the bench last 20 to turn the screw 3-0 wolves. IN NUNO WE TRUST.


4.) 02 Feb 2018 21:07:54
I think leave Afobe on bench until later on or earlier if necessary through injury. Starting him could be a distraction for all sorts of reasons and it's essential we start with a confident focused unit. We're not that desperate for him.


5.) 02 Feb 2018 23:06:21
Tomorrow, its 9 years to the day when we last last scored a hat-trick, must be about time for another.


6.) 03 Feb 2018 06:28:35
Who was it not de Wolfe? Away.


7.) 03 Feb 2018 06:32:52
Seriously now. Who was it?


8.) 03 Feb 2018 08:04:53
SEB, Wolves v Norwich.


9.) 03 Feb 2018 09:49:15
SEB vs Norwich. I can't even remember that. Must look it up.

Knowing the way Nuno's mind works, expect the starting front 3 to be the same as before, Jota, Cav, Costa. Afobe unlikely to start, and Leo will start if he wants a "proper" striker in place of Cav or Costa.

Somebody mark that Clarke chap. How come we never signed him. Oh.


10.) 03 Feb 2018 10:41:51
I remember it. Was in the Stan Cullis celebrating a hat trick then feeling really angry at the end when we let a 3 goal lead slip.

Origi available for loan what do you think.

I have watched all our pre season games and we still do not carry any threat from our midfield when on the attack, I am still not convinced that this squad of players will keep us in the Prem.

I disagree White has had more then his fair chances to gain a place in the team and he is not good enough and should be sold, Traore does not have a footballing brain and should be sold, Neto injured out of action until November time and Nouri is no where near as good as Podence (who has been injured), if he is given the ball 10 times he will pass the ball backwards 8 times he needs to attack more.

With what I saw yesterday I am not impressed, I know some players are missing and it is early season but I feel we need to strengthen the squad with experienced players. There are to many players who pass backwards as there first thought when a lot of the time they could turn and attack and the under 23s are the worst.

Nuno only given two year contract at Spurs, seems a bit short to me and shows not first choice. His reception will depend on how many Wolves players he takes with him to Spurs.

Lage built his reputation on playing youth and doing well at Benfica, Wolves have 71 players on there books most are young players so I am not surprised we are selling some of our experienced players and being linked with almost every young u21 Portugal player.

We should forget paying £60 million for Nouri-Vitinha-Jose, sell Traore-Moutinho-White-Vinagre-Bonatini-Cutrone-Campana-Mir and try to buy Abraham-Lingard-Ali-Niles player who are proven premier players if we want to compete at the top. Nuno needs to have a strong matchday squad all of whom are good enough to play and back up by a strong u23s.
