According to the mail Boly is about to be sold.
I think something has gone on behind the scenes, I know he is injured at present but to go from first choice to way down the pecking order something has got to have happened behind the scenes.
He's been top notch in the past but maybe it is time to get new blood in.


1.) 12 Jan 2022 15:37:58
Just think Lage is sick of him being injured or ill all the time and pretty much said so a couple of months ago and he still hasn't been available since then. But for a handful of games, boly hasn't been great since he broke his leg. But he will be remembered fondly. He was massive for us in our rise from mid table championship to Premier league and Europe. Good luck to him if he goes

2.) 12 Jan 2022 18:14:10
Not sure I'd believe it, it is silly season after all! He's been nothing but injured and still is as far as I'm aware, not sure how he would even complete a medical right now?

3.) 15 Jan 2022 17:31:05
Regarding Boly it can't be sensible to suggest he's up for sale because he's injury prone.



16 Jan 2021 23:51:03
Our defence hasn't looked right since boly was switched from the left hand side. Its as plain as day we don't have the personnel to play with a back four so let's revert to the three that has served us so well in the past.
If MGW gets on the pitch before Vitinha then try that tells you he's not going to be bought.

On MGW, I really don't see what he does to warrant getting anywhere near our first team, not nowhere near good enough.
Nuno looked a dejected man in the post match interview, let's hope this is the kick up the arse he needs to get us back on track.


1.) 17 Jan 2021 11:12:14
Agreed big cheese let's keep as many square pegs in square holes as possible. Maybe a 3412 with Silva who does seem a good footballer if not yet a centre forward playing deeper and Cutrone up front to hold the ball. Either Adama, Neto or Podence a free role across the front 3 to maximise their ability to break. Just my thoughts but surely we've got to try something different.



31 Aug 2020 12:30:25
Maybe Nuno see's Sanderson as the man to replace Doherty after his good season for Cardiff.
That is what the reserve team is for, to bring player's through. If Doherty wanted to leave then let him go, we would have ended up with a player who wanted to be elsewhere if we didn't have.

I presume Nuno was happy to let him leave or I personally don't think it would have been sanctioned.
Onwards and upwards, I'm sure it won't be long before signings are being welcomed to the golden palace.


1.) 31 Aug 2020 14:24:15
Big- what a nice change it is to finally read a sensible and well balanced approach to the Doc transfer! Great post 👍.

2.) 31 Aug 2020 15:15:21
BullyBoy I have no objection to him going if that is what he has determined he wants to do and we felt he would be a negative influence on the squad.
Presumably he wanted to go for more money or perhaps European football - who knows?
However what I object to is selling him for what is obviously far less than his true value.
As he would be in the books at zero - after 10 years at the club - all £13.5m ( after 10% payment to Bohemians) will be profit and go to our FFP target. Great!
But in 2018/ 19 - the last accounts available our total profit was just over £21m - i. e. we have given Spurs a discount equivalent to something like an entire years profit!
Given we are tight against FFP - its been discussed till we are blue in the face - surely we can't afford to do that and surely we should be told what is going on and why we are giving Spurs favoured nation status?

3.) 31 Aug 2020 15:39:48
Glad someone posted something positive for once, seems there are a few new doomers again.

4.) 31 Aug 2020 16:05:11
Future- I actually agree mate as the price was the only part that surprised me. However I fear what we are seeing is the cost of doing business in this (first post the virus) window. Look at Dwight McNiel, Dyche was saying 12 months back they wouldn't even discuss anything under £40m and now being tied with a £15-20m move! I think the crisis has finally given footy a reality check so it all becomes relative. So yes that is about half of what I would have expected for Docs BUT its kind of like buying a house, if the replacement has also plummeted in value by half as well then its just the market rather than the club 👍.

5.) 31 Aug 2020 16:13:48
Looks like prices are coming down to Lidl from Waitrose! Not a bad thing tbh.

6.) 31 Aug 2020 16:28:10
I really hope you are right - AMN didn't work out that way though. However as you say there haven't been many deals done so far and perhaps prices will come down and we can buy better. Personally I would rather have tied up the replacement and proven your thesis before selling as now we are taking all the risk. But to date - pre Doherty - Nuno and Fosun have a superb record of buying and selling so perhaps I should cut them some slack.
Guess I'm just over excited by the progress we have made and am desperate for more success to balance 50 years + of less than stellar times following the old gold!

7.) 31 Aug 2020 17:17:41
Agreed I've been there or following Wolves since the mid 60's through good, thick and thicker! The recent seasons just make you want more particularly during this horrid time. We have to trust them! They always seem to do the deals on the quiet let's hope it continues.

8.) 31 Aug 2020 18:15:48
For most of my Wolves supporting life, it has mainly been pessimism surrounding the club. For the first time in those 47 years, I do feel these last 3 years should make us all feel optimistic. All clubs will be going through a harder time at the moment. This story with the current owners/ management/ players, I feel, has a long way to go.

9.) 31 Aug 2020 19:08:01
All makes perfect sense.
The way the world has gone us wolves fans should be buzzing for the new season.
We are top dogs in the West Midlands and long may it continue.
We're ahead of villa and West brom 2 seasons in the premier with most of the squad from the first match 2 seasons ago.
All things are a lot better than not.
I think it will take seeing it happen to convince the doubtful.

10.) 31 Aug 2020 19:12:11
Fingers crossed.
Really looking forward to the new season but with trepidation.
That said I always watch games with half an eye on my watch ticking off the minutes that we haven't conceded yet! Oh dear!

11.) 31 Aug 2020 19:41:35
Not trying to trump anyone but I have supported Wolves for 63 years. Apart from the first few it has been a dismal and depressing time with the odd good bit, but I am patient. The last 3 years have given me belief that we are on the up. There will be more sales of players we have come to love, good luck Doc and thanks for your input, we both move on.

12.) 31 Aug 2020 19:43:59
If only games were 85 minutes! I think that's where improvement is needed. Mind who am I to talk often go into a room and wonder why! Concentration at the end. Tough.

13.) 31 Aug 2020 20:18:33
Lol Ken.
Brill posts from for me elders.
My dad would of been 80 this month wish he was here to see the last three years. Not saying anyone is 80 but 60 years plus is an elder for me and gives me great pleasure reading all your posts.
Fair play and good will to all wolves young and old.

14.) 31 Aug 2020 20:57:25
Lets not get to downbeat, the club has just had probably the best season since 72 73 the years I can first remember. Yes a popular player has moved on, just like Douglas, Cav, Costa and Afobe. Who came in Otto, Neto, Traore and Jimenez. Yes VAR robbed us of champions league football but we still have room to improve our late defending, pressuring teams in posession and breakaways, based on the last 10 games. The best board are at the club in my lifetime with all due respect to Sir Jack but we still can't afford to pay stupid money (thats just financial reality) to attract young players like AMN to the West Mids. He's based near the London bright lights as well which is a big pull for some if that's your kind of thing, its all easier said than done.

15.) 01 Sep 2020 15:42:26
Careful Ard, with sound and logical posting like that people might not believe there's a crisis going on at the club! God help us when the club really is in trouble cause one or two on here LOVE a good panic even when there's NOTHING proving the need for one! 🤣.



14 Apr 2019 09:49:51
We need more strength in depth if we are to progress next season, substitute options are poor to say the least.
Personally, I think it's a shame Mouthino is not 10yrs younger, the guy is head and shoulders the best player at the club.


1.) 14 Apr 2019 16:52:25
I would love us to get 1 or 2 more seasons from him.

2.) 15 Apr 2019 09:48:03
I think we will get at least two decent seasons out of him
He seems very professional and fit, just need some more players around him as good.

3.) 15 Apr 2019 22:31:51
We always new we got to improve our squad after first season if I’m honest we’ve surpassed my expectations this season always thought we’d stop up just nowhere near where we are and a very good cup run it just took its toll towards end with our squad so small we need to keep all players and add 5+ especially if we get europa next season only player I wouldn’t miss is costa everyone wants traore gone but I think with a good preseason he good be different level next year.

4.) 17 Apr 2019 19:36:00
Moutinho still good enough for top 6 clubs it only takes someone like Fernandhino Fabinho or Kante to be injured in close season and he will be brought in as cover.

5.) 19 Apr 2019 13:57:54
If Moutinho was ten years younger, we would never have afforded him. Wouldn't be surprised if we get big offers for him in spite of his age. He's good enough to grace any PL team as a squad player at least.



01 Dec 2018 18:26:21
Disappointed with last night's performance from front to back. Only two players in my opinion were at the required level and that was Coady and Bolt.
The rest are some way behind these two.
Costa was and has been for a few weeks anonymous, Neves and Moutinho get over run to easily simply because we can't hold onto the ball up top.
Jota looks a shadow of the player he was last season and Vinagre is so poor defensively the left side is open every attack the opposition get.
January will be interesting, we need some real quality bringing in.

Looking at our first few games,we have a great chance to get a good start to the new season providing the recruitment of players is right, get recruitment wrong and we make a bad start to the season and Bruno will be gone by the Liverpool game.


1.) 17 Jun 2022 13:30:27
If I was Bruno and they got recruitment wrong I would walk away, he hasn’t been backed at all since he arrived.

2.) 17 Jun 2022 14:23:32
I thought Nuno had taken us as far as he could and it was time for change but if the owners are not backing the new manager it shows that Nuno’s hands were tied and the issues are not with the manager at all.
If we had shown ambition in the January window we could quite easily have achieved top six and why would the owners not want that.

3.) 17 Jun 2022 15:08:11
Well said E .

4.) 17 Jun 2022 19:34:04
I agree e we could have quite easily achieved European football with investment in January,a great opportunity lost in my opinion.

5.) 17 Jun 2022 21:09:03
Nino wouldn’t play VItinha who has agreed to sign for PSG

6.) 18 Jun 2022 02:37:07
Vitinha not good enough for us said a few on here, now look where he's going.
Us not signing Vitinha is on Nuno imo, but good luck to the lad I hope he shines at PSG he has certainly stuck it to Nuno who didn't give him a chance.

7.) 18 Jun 2022 06:22:07
Yet when he played for us he didn't pull up any trees either did he rated?
I don't see how you can blame Nuno, you can only blame the player for not making himself undroppable

8.) 18 Jun 2022 11:58:01
A shame for us it didn't work out with him with us Rated mate.
But I acknowledge that his move to psg confirms what wolves and yourself saw him in.



24 May 2022 19:24:23
Luis Suarez is to be released by athletico Madrid, even at the age of 35 I'd take him for a season, still a quality player who knows what the back of the net looks like.


1.) 24 May 2022 21:26:28
Also has a very large back pocket that we won't be prepared to fill. I also think as Atletico are just letting him go suggests Simeone (who despite setting his team up with dubious tactics at times is a good coach) thinks he's past his best.

2.) 24 May 2022 21:37:45
It's a no for me, he was a great player in his prime, but if AM is letting him go it is for a reason.

3.) 25 May 2022 08:46:09
If he can score more than 4 goals a season, it's an improvement on what we had this season. I think that wages and us tending to sign younger players may mean we won't be interested. He'll probably sign for a Spanish or Italian club or move back to South America.



22 May 2022 17:53:48
We've really gifted the scousers three points with our poor finishing today,we could and should have won today.


1.) 22 May 2022 19:01:01
Need a striker desperately.



22 May 2022 16:50:21
On the first half showing toti is a regular starter for me next season, absolutely class.


1.) 22 May 2022 16:59:26
100% bigcheese

2.) 22 May 2022 17:00:10
Good player!
Must admit when Pedro scored I thought oops we've annoyed them now! ???

3.) 22 May 2022 17:15:37
How come we don't get replays of our penalty appeals?

4.) 22 May 2022 18:09:04
If Liverpool had the chances we had they would have won 6-1. We've got to find a couple of finishers.

5.) 23 May 2022 11:28:47
If we play the way we have played last 14 games into next season,we will be in a relegation battle,not sure about Bruno with is team selections,also not sure if he can be trusted to bring players into our club especially after the Hwang sighning.



21 May 2022 14:43:37
If the fee being touted for mgw is correct,and that money was used to get say sanches or palhinha, would anybody object?
I certainly wouldn't.


1.) 21 May 2022 15:36:32
Think they will use the Neves money to buy Palhinha and the MGW money to pay for Hwang.

I don't think lage gets any great say on things other than picking the team.
I'd say transfers are beyond his pay grade.

Take the money and get shot of him, I can't recall one game in the old gold where he's shown what he obviously thinks he is.

I agree to a certain extent WT, but I think moutinhos experience would be vital if all the others are to go.
I don't want Neves to go and I think palhinha the side of him would allow him more freedom to get forward, but won't begrudge him after the 5 year's he's given us.
The Donk and mgw I don't think will take us forward towards the top six and would gladly take any money on offer for them to reinvest.

Even if Neves is going to stay I would still sign palhinha.
Moutinho is another year older, and can't go on forever, surely a succession plan is common sense.
Say if one of Neves or moutinho gets injured?
Cundle,as good as he looks and dendoncker ain't adequate replacement's, palhinha would compliment and strengthen what we already have.
How can we let Fulham jump in front of us if we have had him on our radar for 2yr?
Poor planning to blame for me.

Is it though arddunby?
We have a £10m player who doesn't want to play for us,who obviously thinks he's better than he actually is.
Surely a sale not a loan is in the club's best interest.

There should be no guarantee for any player of playing time in my opinion.
He's being paid exceptionally well for what I regards a championship level player.

I think you might be right rated,traore, MGW, Donk and possibly ran could all be sold and we'll cover his and palinha's fee's quite easily.
That would transform our team and mean even if we continue with 3 at the back we are playing higher up the pitch because of palinha's defensive quality.
A goalscorer and the top six is within touching distance.
