We are after Gomes this summer. Rodrigo being his first name. Winger who plays left and right. Neto replacement?

vbwolf

1.) 04 Mar 2024 21:38:30
Is that rumour still going on? We were linked with him over the summer along with Raphael Veiga.


2.) 04 Mar 2024 22:37:36
Just been confirmed on express and star that we are eyeing up a summer swoop.


3.) 05 Mar 2024 06:35:41
A striker would be better?


4.) 05 Mar 2024 13:20:34
Both Hwang and Cunha's main position are Centre Forward but they are not being played in their favoured position for whatever reason. Likewise, Noah Lemina is an Attacking Midfielder who can also play on either wing.

Looks like GON is after players who can play multiple positions.

Ramsdale to wolves on loan in Jan with obligation to buy apparently.

vbwolf

1.) 26 Nov 2023 08:38:26
If this is true, then it suggests Sa is leaving


2.) 26 Nov 2023 08:52:52
No chance.


3.) 26 Nov 2023 09:02:55
Have any of you seen the recent video on YouTube (very popular US beer channel, sounds like Dudweiser) Ramsdale is being "interviewed" by Ian Wright and Ramsdale admits to "not being able to keep focused during a game, and will interact with fans" that comment wouldn't fill anyone with confidence.

Of course, this could be a certain corner of the media conflating two stories (if SA to Saudi is true, and Ramsdale being shipped out of Arsenal is true) and fabricating a story to generate clicks / interactions.


4.) 26 Nov 2023 09:28:28
Don't think we can afford his wages.


5.) 26 Nov 2023 17:33:59
Arsenal could pay some of his wages during the loan period, then potentially negotiate lower wages during contract talks (should any of this be true)


6.) 26 Nov 2023 19:12:02
An Albion fan in goal!


7.) 26 Nov 2023 19:22:48
It's a Daily Star story so that should tell you all you need to know.


8.) 26 Nov 2023 19:48:26
All highly unlikely but terrible fear is that it forms part of a wider deal involving Neto.
ps seen a note saying we value Neto at £60m, isn't that a bit low unless Ramsdale is included at zero as part of the deal - even then not sure?
Where would you value Neto Cf Havertz, Cuccerella (sp), Mudryk, etc etc etc!


9.) 27 Nov 2023 14:36:53
Future, I agree that if there's anything in the Ramsdale rumours, that might indicate a PX makeweight in the Neto deal. If it's Ramsdale in, Neto out, then it's Sa out to Saudi as well. We need to get at least £100mil for Neto and Sa and maybe get Ramsdale on a free transfer due to his wages.


10.) 27 Nov 2023 16:28:54
Wouldnt mind a Sa - Ramsdale swap - he is home grown and of course from a FFP persepctive it would be a fabulous swap at £40m (Note Ramsdale would have to cost less so that his wages are covered by the fee disparity)
As you suggest that means we would want £100m straight for Neto - just can't see how we replace him though even with that much cash?
ps enjoy the view tonight from the posh seats! I will be behind the goal in the cheap seats!

West Ham after Semedo Aparently? Not sure January but he would turn 30 soon so be interesting to see what they would offer?

vbwolf

1.) 03 Oct 2023 18:50:18
Who do we have to replace Semedo if we use 4 in back? Doherty isn't really a replacement for Semedo since he plays differently. We are strong on left back, but right back seems more iffy, unless we stay with 3/5 in back.


2.) 04 Oct 2023 06:41:03
Well, no one wanted him this summer.would be surprised if a good manager like Moyes would be interested.


3.) 04 Oct 2023 19:33:36
It was slightly different in the summer cause we held off on triggering his extension until the last minute. So if teams were interested they would have been waiting to see if he was going to be availible on a free. Such a funny player, in some games (mostly the big teams) he looks like an absolute world beater! Then agaisnt Luton he looked like he was playing drunk! Under the current climate I think we need to keep him, Jonny is not the player he was so currently probs our best option ?


4.) 05 Oct 2023 08:11:02
BB -agree a player who baffles. So much skill and composure on the ball and pace. Plus a v good 1 on 1 defender. But prone to lapses of defensive conentration, weak in the air and gets a nose bleed when he gets near the opponents box and so is largely ineffectual offensively.
He is almost a mirror image of Doherty whose strengths are Semedo's weaknesses and vice versa.
But if someone is willing to pay serious money for him - Newcastle paid a huge sum to Southampton for Livremont (sp) who is merely cover for Trippier then - as RB is probably the least important position in the team and normally easy to replace - Chelsea sold Livremont and Lamptey for less than £10m combined - he is probably the player we should sell to cover this year's FFP problem.
Agreed neither Doherty or Otto are long term options or probably even short term options - Doherty could do it if we stick to 3 at the back - but as stated we should be able to find a replacement for somewhat lower wages and fee!


5.) 06 Oct 2023 10:57:59
Hi TFIG, we still have Lembekisa who started to look good and the Colombian lad on loan in America who is due back soon I think.


6.) 27 Oct 2023 01:22:25
You've got to love it, papers are carrying a story of 'Newc shock move for Neves' but WHERE I ask you is the shock?! Half of us keyboard warrior wannabe footy journos where calling that VERY 'shock move' when he left (myself included)! It was always a blatant way to sign him around FFP rules when it happened and if WE new that all the journos new that too! I hate it but you have to admire Newc, they are going to compete with City at their own game! Saddly for the rest of us in the footy world (and it's a damning indictment BTW) that 'game' is now the best cheat wins! Best league in the world, well as Jim Royale would say 'my @rse'! Biggest sports washing joke, I'm afraid that's what we've become! ?


7.) 27 Oct 2023 23:10:09
BB - under current rules I'm not sure that Newcastle/their owners will actually have done anything wrong?
Clearly the Newcastle owners could own a team in 2 other arenas, South America, Australia, USA etc etc. Each of the 2 teams could buy, for vast sums, one of the best players in the world and put them on mind blowingly high salaries. They could then lend the 2 world class players to Newcastle with Newcastle paying a fraction of their wages.
This would allow Newcastle to have 2 world class players in their team for minimal cost effectively emasculating FFP in the Prem.
Of course there may be issues for the other teams owned by Newcastle's owners. They would be paying for the superstars, (fees and wages) not playing for their team in South America, Australia etc but turning out instead for Newcastle. But that won't impact Newcastle?


8.) 01 Nov 2023 19:42:27
Oh I quite agree TFG (as usual:) according to the current system they are well within the rules from what I can tell. Although I do wonder if they will bring in some kind of limit on loans outside the EU (or some other device to make it harder). Also it still doesn't make it right though and as I say we do seem to have become a League where the mantra should be 'best team at exploiting the loop holes wins'. Classic example is the sheer disgrace of City very pubically calling for the FA to hurry up with their investigations whilst purposefully forgetting to mention that they have thrown every legal hurdle at the case fully in the knowledge that some of the charges become time barred.
Just abit sick of it all to be honest buddy, we sell our best players to play by the rules while others just flaunt them cause they are better/have the means to get round um. I've been saying it for years but I really am falling out of love with this not so beautiful game. World Cup 2034 'given' to Saudi, give me a break it just gets better and better!
Sorry for the whining but I'm just sick of the only teams trying to play fair being the ones who seem to be peeing up the proverbial rope! My whole life all I've heard peeps say 'well the bubble will burst' and I'm not sure it ever will. Everytime it comes close the powers that be just find a way to quietly pump it back up again, usually using some form of well washed blood money! ?


9.) 02 Nov 2023 19:56:45
BB - v v sorry to hear that. I know exactly how you feel but at the moment I am re-engaging with the game - primarily through watching live games all over the place but mainly at lower league grounds.
Real fans, real football - no money anywhere!
However I accept that what are you saying is v true and frankly is getting worse! At least in the 70s teams stood a chance and Ipswich, Derby, Norwich, Southampton, QPR etc etc all had moments in the sun.
Maybe that is why the debacle after the miracles of Nuno and Seville hurt so badly and I have been so bad tempered/intolerant on here these last couple of years!
Sorry!


10.) 02 Nov 2023 21:55:37
Ah don't be silly TFG old buddy, no need for apologies. We have had many a good debate on here but I'd honestly NEVER say you've been bad tempered or intolerable! In fact more often than not I'd say engaging and interesting ?
Pleased to hear your finding the love for the game again in the lower leagues and I think you may have a good shout there fella. I may try and catch the odd game myself now you've said it, cause like you say I'm abit done with the Prem. I'm on the old IPTV, cheaper and somehow less frustrating! Keep enjoying those lower league games buddy and keep on posting. Least we aren't having to moan about the club/performances as much these days, credit where its due GON long may it continue ??


11.) 08 Nov 2023 22:36:41
West ham after ait nouri as well apparently.they reckon 20 mill plus cresswell will get him.i say sod off


 

 

09 Sep 2023 13:07:01
Aparently Chelsea blocked our move for Dia as Boehlys group has a stake or something is Strasborg and didn’t want to let this huge talent come to us.

vbwolf

1.) 09 Sep 2023 13:50:05
Surely that sort of thing is not allowed?


2.) 09 Sep 2023 14:06:07
If true Chelsea might be having more trouble coming their way.


3.) 09 Sep 2023 15:19:35
Where did the information come from Vbwolf, just out of interest.


4.) 09 Sep 2023 18:19:23
And, I saw it on BBC gossip article


5.) 09 Sep 2023 19:05:27
It was for Habib Diarra not Dia


6.) 09 Sep 2023 20:00:30
I think I saw it on the BBC


7.) 11 Sep 2023 12:34:24
It was Habib Diarra at Strasbourg. The Chelsea owner's consortium own Strasbourg and they didn't want Diarra signing for Wolves. Not against the rules but showed we touched a nerve if offering to buy Diarra. I guess Diarra will be playing at Stamford Bridge soon.


8.) 12 Sep 2023 10:31:55
Would have been the same if Chelsea had been interested in a player at Grasshoppers (if only). We could have blocked it, as the Fosun owner's wife still owns Grasshoppers. What happens to all those 'ones for the future' that we ship out to Grasshoppers? Never seem to hear much.

Podence off to Qatar

vbwolf

1.) 01 Sep 2023 16:27:51
Good luck to him I know he is like marmite you either love him or you hate him, he did score some cruicial goals that kept us up last season, wound up players too, but his diving and play acting really let him down.


2.) 01 Sep 2023 16:32:07
BELAGARDE coming in deal agreed.


3.) 01 Sep 2023 16:40:54
Sky reporting trying to get Bellegarde deal over the line.


4.) 01 Sep 2023 17:21:28
Podence to Qatari club off as they signed Coutinho instead. Could be going Saudi instead as Gerrard club are apparently after him.

Max on the way out for 40m. Good fee for me but wish him all the best.

vbwolf

1.) 04 Jul 2024 16:00:44
Great fee. I wish him well, but not against us obviously. Hopefully we'll see the money reinvested wisely and GON/Hobbs already have suitable targets.


2.) 04 Jul 2024 16:14:11
Congratulations and well done to Fosun on achieving £40m for captain Kilman.
Hope you invest the money wisely and good luck to Max and Lopetegui and Ruben and Nuno and Jota and Podence and Moutinho and Raul and Vitinha and Trincao and Guedes and (maybe not) Nunes and MGW and all of the others who believed in the project and have now left the club for one reason or another.


3.) 04 Jul 2024 16:50:56
I don't think Vitinha, Trincao or Guedes really cared whilst they were here. Well their performances suggested that they weren't interested.


4.) 04 Jul 2024 17:10:45
They have fire in their belly now though WS so why would they come to Wolves and not try?


5.) 04 Jul 2024 17:24:52
Vitinha was rubbish when he was with us. Trincao never got going and Guedes has come out and said that he never wanted to be here but Jorge Mendes convinced him to move.


6.) 04 Jul 2024 18:44:36
Convinced him of the project WS which was my original point.
Along with plenty more who left the club and the ten per cent of season ticket holders who didn’t renew this season due to rising costs selling established players and replacing them with ones for the future who will be sold on at the first opportunity of profit or loaned out to lower league clubs like Stoke Birmingham City or Plymouth if they prove not good enough for the PL.


7.) 04 Jul 2024 21:10:15
Are you a Wolves supporter E?
All season tickets sold. Biggest sponsorship deals ever. Great looking kit. We are an established premiership team. We have had some great players since Fosun/Nuno era and yes sold at a vast profit. Isn't that how business operates and grows? We've made a few bad signings, but how many did we make with Sir Jack!
All players have a price and all clubs will sell their best players if the money is right. Wolves are in a great position for a mid sized team, with no FFP concerns.
There's always another Jota, Neves, Raul etc out there, it's up to our scouting team to find them.


8.) 04 Jul 2024 22:05:03
To be fair, I think there are plenty of players currently at the club who can/will be sold for big profits.

AIT, Bueno, Neto, Joao Gomes and Tommy Doyle to name just a few.


9.) 04 Jul 2024 22:33:03
All season tickets allegedly sold Blackfords.
Still have 10, 000 on waiting list?
Mine is in the Steve Bull at £835 which is £44 per game and miles away from the pitch but prefer to sit here than in the uncovered Graham Hughes stand.
Does any other PL stadium have an uncovered seating area?

Don’t tell me about investment in the team as West Ham have just spent £40m on a centre half Bournemouth spent £100m last season and Ipswich have offered £30m for two Hull players so we are still going to be in a relegation scrap with our new £58 yellow Sudo tops.


10.) 05 Jul 2024 06:51:28
We've done similar. Cuhna £44, Semado £36, Nunes £40+, Silva £35, Guedes £27, Raul £30 to name just a few. Before I get slated I'm aware that some of these haven't worked out, but looks at those we've spent minimal money on and made huge profit. Kilman is just a great example of this.
Unfortunately unlike West Ham we haven't been GIVEN a new stadium. There's always clubs who are well run like Bournemouth and Brighton, but there are some in a much worse position than us.


11.) 05 Jul 2024 13:46:25
Ironically, our best players last season (with the exception of Cunha and Semedo) cost less than £20m each showing that you don't always have to pay over the odds to get good players.


12.) 05 Jul 2024 16:35:15
And we finished 14th in the table winning only one of the last ten games and that was against a relegated team.
As Jeff Shi stated ‘don’t expect consistent European football or trophies if you follow Wolves’


13.) 05 Jul 2024 17:16:16
Yep E, and before those games without injuries we were on the cusp of euro qualification. Who'd have predicted that at the start of the season? GON will now have his own team and plan a totally different approach to our intentions this year. Don't expect, no, but have the faith and fear nothing. COYW.


14.) 05 Jul 2024 17:43:23
How many of the squad that was pushing for Europe before injuries to all 3 main attacking options (apart from Cunha) cost big money. Even when Nuno guided us into Europe, we didn't spend lavishly. I think Jimenez was our only player over £25m.


15.) 05 Jul 2024 17:44:42
Here is your opportunity Yerson to prove yourself as a premier League quality central defender. Grab it . Surely this is not the time to press for a “comfortable “ return to Spain .

Iheanacho On a free anyone? Much better than Adams.

19 May 2024 21:09:53
Glad the season is over. A massive summer now for us. We have to strengthen attackers and defenders. We need atleast 6-7 players coming in that can help. Get rid of the deadwood to free up some space and funds. A lot of people want to get rid of Doc but to be fair to him, he knows where the net is and actually makes intelligent runs and usually tries his hardest. A good squad player for me.

Overall I think it has been a pretty disappointing season. When we got to the point of being close to top 6, the fact we have just fallen off, losing 8 games out of the last 11 has left me with a sour taste in my mouth. Just very frustrating and disappointing to be honest. Hoping for a positive summer.

vbwolf

1.) 20 May 2024 06:56:32
We in much better position at the end of this season than most would of expected.
Huge doubts with rookie manager GON,
The needed required overhaul of aging squad etc etc.

Yes VAR has been atrocious for us and we've had the most wrong decisions but other than that there's huge hope.

So bad and sloppy at the back. Ridiculous

vbwolf

1.) 11 May 2024 15:59:50
Ever since the Coventry game the whole team seem to have stopped trying. What they should remember is us fans pay the same price whether it's first or last game. I am close to saying enough is enough, if they can't be bothered neither can i. I am beginning to think GON may be out of his depth, he seems totally unable to motivate his team.


2.) 11 May 2024 16:44:39
What a pathetic end to the ssn.not just an end tho isit the last 3rd of the season and 1 win.even with the injuries that's pathetic. think if we start next ssn like this which I can see happening. Gon will be sacked and wel be relegated.and fgs get rid of bentley!


3.) 11 May 2024 16:49:58
We've been so bad defensively since Dawson's injury. Really concerned about next season if Dawson starts getting age related niggly injuries because Kilman just isn't as good as people seem to thunk he is.


4.) 11 May 2024 17:14:19
Not a good end to season, injured cost us dearly recently, Kilman is not a captain and needs a strong leader beside him, as he's been very average, our biggest issue recently has been the midfield, we have really lacked any presence against teams, GON if backed will have a full pre season ahead of him to work with the team and possibly one or 2 new faces, for me, Nouri, Semedo, sa, Neto will all go to fund new players, Neto has had his time here and needs to be cashed in on for the right price, love him to stay, but the money is needed to invest


5.) 11 May 2024 17:24:35
Get rid of Sa, Doherty and Kilman.
Bring in Ramsdale, Dier and give Mosquera a chance.

Kilman is not Captain material and isn't good enough. Too error prone for my liking.


6.) 11 May 2024 17:34:14
Palace in real.good form going into today's game we are in poor form.
Nevertheless our last home game expected not to lose 1-3.

At least the players and manager are being looked at and not overrided by VAR.


7.) 11 May 2024 17:47:19
GON is still learning his way and what he's done for us this season as been remarkable. We've had some ups and we've experienced the downs. Depth of squad presented numerous problems. Today was an opportunity to give us entertainment but they failed miserably. Gomez and samedo seemed to be the only ones with an interest first half. The tactics were wrong again although I get what GON was trying to do in countering palaces front line. Disappointing last home game, just the matter of klopps farewell at Liverpool next week, can we spoil the party? Nah.


8.) 11 May 2024 17:49:42
Agree jas. Add to exit with
Sarabia, santiago Bueno, mario,
Bellegarde, at least.


9.) 11 May 2024 17:50:16
My bro just got back in told me pretty much the same as you Ray.
First half we looked like we didn't want to know bit better second half.
Sods law my bro also said we were done by VAR again should of had a penalty but free kick given on the edge of the box.
Be interesting to see motd tonight.

My bro is back um safe that's the only positive today.
Terrible sad depressing day compiled by limp defeat.

Hope for better happier times with our Wolves.
Take care all sure I'm done till next season.


10.) 11 May 2024 17:50:46
Sa wasn't playing today.


11.) 11 May 2024 18:05:07
Get rid of Sa, Kilman, Toti, Podence, Chiquinho, Guedes, Cundle, Hodge, Sasa and Silva.

Loan out Fraser, Chirewa and Chiwome.

Dier loan is being made permanent by Bayern on 1st July so unless the new manager doesn't want him, that isn't an option.

Bring back Mosquera.

Bring in: Ramsdale (loan), Rodrigo Gomes, Matias Soule, a defender (Dier or Joe Gomez) on loan and Josh Brownhill.


12.) 11 May 2024 18:45:14
He was miles outside the box Phil. Never a peno. Unfortunately


13.) 11 May 2024 19:58:25
After the way we pulled clear of relegation and showed spirit it is sad to end the season on a downer. I just hope it does not impact on next season's start. Much work to do.


14.) 12 May 2024 02:23:05
Was outside the box Phil mate tbf VAR and ref had a decent game VAR stepped in when needed and correctly gave our goal too.


15.) 12 May 2024 07:25:43
Jas, if O'Neil has his way I think his list would be similar yours.
Mine also with one or two exceptions.
I would add Semedo, a high cost in wages. The biggest issue for me is not just his lack of goals and assists but his cross success is only 17%! Also I would add Sarabia.
Not sure about Chiquinho, would like to see more of him during pre-season first.
Anyway, let's see what happens.


16.) 12 May 2024 09:37:47
Semedo is much improved this season and when Neto was playing looked so much better when attacking.

Sarabia unfortunately looks poor because he hasn't got the players around him. His little flicks and through balls yesterday were good but we just didn't have anyone on his wave length.


17.) 12 May 2024 11:37:50
I like our squad however H Bueno, Doherty, Bellegarde, Traore, Sarabia, Hodge, Cundle and Silva, Chiquinho need to be sold

I saw that and hope it’s true. I guess for squad depth then maybe but I don’t rate him that much. It’s only because he is free that wolves are after him but I would rather we pick up the Paraguayan that we are after.

He is not someone that use tactics. He picks the same team regardless of who is playing well, use tournaments to try experiments rather than trying things out in friendlies, and also utilizes players who are past their sell by date in friendlies (Hendo) when they are not going to be apart of the tournament. He relies on the big players to get him out of the mess, and is probably the luckiest manager I know as we have seemed to get some great draws in these competitions. I would like there to be a chance. Yes a semi final and two finals are great but you don’t get anything for being a runner up. I would like to see Klopp come in to be honest especially as the media is saying he could go to USA.

Not negative, just saying it’s a tough start and we have to keep our heads up and battle hard. We play everyone twice but it can be a good thing to have momentum and can be hard mentally if we don’t start well, especially given the bad end to our season.

It’s only kind in what you say with regards to home games. It is a really hard start. We could be around bottom after the first two months if we get off to a really slow start and don’t manage to pick up a point or two against the top six to eight teams.
