Jas m can you clarify the ffp please I'm assuming you know the ins and outs of it. only every time anyone mentions spending money you start panicking. I've done a quick work out profit last season 127.5m. spent this season 80 m . profit from selling players cav Costa hause 30m that's an income of 157m so there's 25m in fosuns pockets for there investments that leaves around 50m. correct me if I'm wrong tho jas your the expert.

16 Sep 2019 20:19:41
Loans aren't selling players coven.

16 Sep 2019 20:25:27
Coven, I'm not an expert like you keep suggesting. All I've done is gone on the UEFA site and read it. Basically, you can't spend more than you earn.

16 Sep 2019 20:37:01
So this is an idiots guide to FFP just for Coven.

Prize money, ticket sales, TV revenue, merchandise sales and player sales = incoming money.

So if that totals just for arguments sake £200m, that's how much we have to spend.

Over 3 seasons we can spend up to £39m over our income but that money must come from the owner of the clubs own fortune. If not, the club get fined like AC Milan this season.

We've just spent £80m on Jimenez, Dendoncker, Neto, Jordao and Cutrone.

Coven, please don't insist I'm being bug headed or know e everything about FFP, I just happen to have read the guide and understand it.

16 Sep 2019 21:35:17
I maybe a moron too, but I would imagine that other outgoings from the club like salaries for medical facilities/ personnel insurances security etc promotional signage etc all have to be weighed up against overall profit. Which pushes things a little more to the wire. The potential wages of 'big money' outlay must also be taken in to account. Buy a rolls Royce yes but then running it can bankrupt you.

16 Sep 2019 08:31:14
Coady has been directly responsible for 3 goals in the last 2 matches - 1 against Everton (back pass) and 2 against Chelsea - out jumped and easily beaten in the box by Abrahams.

16 Sep 2019 09:51:12
We never improved the first 11, that’s where the problem lyes, so the squad hasn’t the quality needed to do well in Prem and Europa. If you want to be successful you can’t stand stil, or you stagnate.

16 Sep 2019 12:08:23
Agreed. Fosun needed to spend more money, which is what you have to do to playing in the second season.

16 Sep 2019 12:16:19
Been found wanting, Nuno needs a plan B and better players, look at the first eleven compared to when Fosun took over, massive improvements but we need to see the same commitment from them again.
No room for sentiments, upgrade and move on!

15 Sep 2019 21:27:09
Although fosun have progressed wolves . the fact of the matter is there no sir Jack. there not here for the love of the club, they want profit i.e wanting new investors so they havnt got to dip into there pockets. they have the money in the bank to sign the players we needed to improve on last season but it was there choice not to do the obvious. that's why were relying on the acadamy. its costs nothing! nuno has properly been told to put up or shut up that's why the likes of Everton and Leicester will finish higher. just stating the facts not being negative . not willing to bury my head in the sand and only speak when the shxt hits the fan. I've said this all along. thought it was weird that shi came out and said were 2 years above schedule.? Are they pegging us back to fit in with fosun plan. defence should of Been built around boly . were 6 players short . hey ho up the wolves.

15 Sep 2019 23:01:30
Coven, please please please look up how Financial Fair Play rules work. It doesn't matter how much money our owners have, they can only spend a % over the total income.

16 Sep 2019 00:12:28
@Jas M our neighbours seem to have spent £130m which doesn’t guarantee success anyway but no need to have a go at Coven. He can smell a rat like a few of us and just wants answers. Nuno seems resigned to the situation rather than his usual angry self after a defeat and a few things aren’t adding up at the moment.

16 Sep 2019 07:02:23
To be honest nuno didn't have much choice this weekend. Boly massive miss, where was/ is/ why Bennett not in squad? Coady effected by their absence and poor. Traore no defender and doc noto 100% yet. Midfield not getting normal service and pulled out. Add that Chelsea set out a different stall plus a fortuitous wonder goal and I think we can see the problem. Sure we're not sitting pretty in the prem just yet, and, it's an uphill season now, but we still have some of the best players around and a couple of results will get us back on track. Defeats will come for everyone one and surprises happen (norwich-city), so come on cheer up. Braga on for hiding and we'll all be up again. COYW. (What was the Bennett prob? )

16 Sep 2019 08:20:31
Happy Times, have at look at some of Covens previous posts. He thinks just because the owners have lots of money, they can spend it all on players and clearly he doesn't or simply refuses to understand FFP rules and guidelines.

16 Sep 2019 12:10:30
Coven is correct-he can see the problems which are obvious-lack of quality and Nuno's inability to have a good Plan B.

16 Sep 2019 17:49:32
Moan moan moan, we lose 2 games and everyone is seeing what nuno and Fosun can't. They know so much better. Yet look at wolves now, look how we were a few seasons ago. Did we ever dream of the players we have now? Of FA cup semi finals beating the mancs and scousers along the way. Of being in Europe, sellout crowds. Did we look forward to Millwall away? Or dream of both Manchesters both liverpools the prem London clubs. Wel wake up get it real we amongst it now to fosun and nuno's vision. Pre season tour to promote the wolves brand, that's not shortsightedNess. Nuno may have to find a plan b. May have to do it quick, I want to win trophies but don't want travelling trophy hunters. Perhaps nuno and Fosun share my thoughts and won't be ripped off.

15 Sep 2019 11:09:43
Bad day at the office yesterday we were second best most of the game according to stats we are the only team not to have led a single game for a single minute. Look at the post match interviews Lampard was scared of playing us at home, did his home work and changed his formation to counter our threat it worked. We need to mix it up a bit can't keep to the same tactics every game. Expected better need a win quick or we could be blowing our chances of a decent finish.

15 Sep 2019 12:01:04
Nuno has become the tinkerman. Resting players when they are not tired and playing them when they are tired due to international duty. Last season he stuck to mostly the same team but no one has a clue who will be playing on Thursday.

14 Sep 2019 23:56:38
Next 2 league games need to be won.

14 Sep 2019 22:59:55
Traore experiment must be over now - five at the back at home just invites pressure - three defensive midfielders can’t influence the game - hope Nuno’s got his head down having a new dream.

14 Sep 2019 23:52:26
i'm wondering if it'd be better for now to go a simple 442 or 433 patrico gk, rb doherty, lb johnny, cb bennet, boly (coady needs a rest), rw traore, lw jota, cm neves, moutinho, cr raul, cutrone?

15 Sep 2019 01:31:44
Why Patricio in goal? If Ruddy let 5 in we would be saying he has to be dropped.

15 Sep 2019 11:19:47
On deadline day I came on this site predicting we would be in a relegation battle through lack of investment, and was slaughtered for my negativity; accused by those who are blinkered of being a Baggies fan.

Well after yesterday I have no cause to change my mind. The squad is too thin but crucially lacks quality. Now we have an interesting side issue with Fosun apparently looking to sell 20% of the club in order to challenge at the top of the Premier. Either Fosun are losing interest from a financial point of view-OR their ambition is genuine and need more significant financial clout to carry out their objective. One thing is for sure if it is the latter, then two wins against Palace and Watford are mandatory because if not the cruelty of the Premier will spell the end of Nuno.

15 Sep 2019 12:35:21
@Happy Times, Patricio could do nothing about 4 of those goals, however the first one he should of got to imo, the whole team were at fault yesterday except for the 3 subs who came on as they did make a difference I feel.
Also one huge positive to take is Cutrone is finally of the mark I have a feeling he needed that goal and many more will come now.
Anyway we must stay behind the team and Nuno and hopefully things will improve.

14 Sep 2019 17:13:12
I'll just be happy to stop up after this start to season. how to improve on last season? rely on the academy makes no sense.

14 Sep 2019 18:00:56
Coady for England 😂 Dendoncker is a donkey 😂 absolute garbage! Nuno wanted a small squad? With a small squad you need quality? We haven’t improved the first 11? First time Nuno has been under pressure, let’s see if he can turn it around? Quality needed in jan as the Madrid centre half must of been their tea boy, def not a footballer.

14 Sep 2019 18:15:27
too much moaning about new players take a lookat coadys contribution as a captain he is awful as a sweeper even worse need to thing again in this position!

14 Sep 2019 18:54:58
Coady, Dendonker, Traore and Neves were woeful today they need dropping'Nuno's under the spot light now, that display was the same as the rest this season'second rate.
Europe has come way too early for the club'the squad lacks quality and numbers, money needs spending in the next window, we need a quality centre back and a different option in the centre to Moutinho, were getting over run in midfield and if he's getting over ran and hurried 'were stuffed.
Nuno needs to change his approach 'we've been Sussed.
If we are going to chase Kessie again, pay the money and get him in pronto, otherwise forget him and go for players that might be more interested in the project.

14 Sep 2019 19:38:32
Quality needed in Jan. We can't have turned into a bad team over the course of 1 pre season. Coady has looked shaky over the last 2 games so Boly was a massive miss today. Midfield needs a tough tackling midfielder a la Paul Ince/ N'Golo Kante to allow Neves space to spray the passes and Moutinho to dictate play. I thought Dendoncker was that player but he's just not been the same this season.

14 Sep 2019 20:32:09
Yes woeful but let's trust Nuno for now. Mourinho is waiting in the wings.

14 Sep 2019 21:19:28
Nuno will get this sorted. Braga are going to suffer on Thursday.

15 Sep 2019 13:33:16
Dendonker is a regular in the top rated International team, Moutinho and Neves are regulars in the Spanish squad, the fact our midfield are outplayed more often than not can only be down to the tactics employed.

15 Sep 2019 14:24:29
Just like the team. had a mare, always get Spain and Portugal mixed up.

14 Sep 2019 16:17:01
An absolute embarrassment against a team nowhere near their best. Not good if this is anything to go by for the rest of the season! Things need to change and quickly!

14 Sep 2019 16:26:10
I was worried seeing the team. This is awful. What's nuno prep and selection for this shockingly poor showing?

14 Sep 2019 17:17:13
Please don't just start slagging us off, we need to get behind the manager.

14 Sep 2019 16:15:00
So Coady messes up against Everton and Bennett gets dropped out of sight.

14 Sep 2019 18:09:57
coady has been a liabilty for a long time and todays performance shows that he is the problem not the solution!

14 Sep 2019 23:56:01
I think today highlighted just how important Willy Boly is.

11 Sep 2019 10:54:32
Why is one report saying that Dendoncker had a poor game against the scots and another saying he was excellent?

11 Sep 2019 21:16:34
The BBC didn't mention him at all but he can't have been that bad as he played all 90 minutes.

11 Sep 2019 23:11:49
All I’ve read is Martinez praising him up. Apparently he was well impressed with Donk.

12 Sep 2019 07:55:15
The reporter must be the same one reporting back to Gareth Southgate, you know, the one who thinks Michael Keane is better than Coady.

12 Sep 2019 08:03:46
I watched most of the Everton match - Dendonkey was mentioned once and that was when he gave the ball away!

12 Sep 2019 10:05:44
Coady is good for us in a back 3, but would be no good for us or England in a flat back 4. And Donkey offers us nothin, bang average signin imo.

12 Sep 2019 17:47:27
PT, all the experts like Michael Owen, Glenn Hoddle, Lee Dixon etc have all said that England play better in a 352 formation like in the World Cup.

12 Sep 2019 18:52:49
If they play that formation Coady has a chance, but no chance in a flat back four for us or England.

12 Sep 2019 20:08:24
Agreed. But surely you've got to agree with me when I say Coady is better than Tyrone Mings playing any formation.

12 Sep 2019 20:58:53
Il agree England need to play with a back 3 as whoever the centre halves are, their not good enough for a flat back 4, and why Henderson keeps getting picked il never know? Anyway it’s all about Mighty Wolves now and let’s get 3 points Saturday 👍.

13 Sep 2019 00:28:03
Usual bet of Wolves to win 3-1 @25/ 1 and Jota 1st scorer in a 3-1 win @90/ 1.

13 Sep 2019 13:17:54
Gone for 3-2 to Wolves Raul first scorer at 125/ 1.

13 Sep 2019 20:51:48
Nuno's old gold 3-0. (VAR permitting! ) Get the momentum back and a prem win under our belt.

14 Sep 2019 14:35:32
Having seen the team I'm going 2-2. Worried abit.
