Sevilla are interested in Wolves' Spanish striker Rafa Mir, 23, who is currently on loan at La Liga club Huesca. (La Razon)

Could be a good way to raise funds for a future signing. Though I still think selling Traore would (a) raise the most money (b) sell a player who doesn't want to play for Wolves.

Sell Mir with a future share of any profit. Failing that, lend him out and hopefully get a good loan fee and his wages covered. In the meantime get him back for pre-season to have a re-appraisal. Who knows, he might have improved significantly in his time away from Wolves.

09 Apr 2021 19:34:32
Apparently, Sevilla want Mir, could he be used in a swap deal for Lucas Ocampos. Some reports are claiming this might happen.

{Ed002's Note - Rafa Mir (S) they may sell him straight on for a profit. They have an option to buy cheaply.}

09 Apr 2021 19:34:32
Apparently, Sevilla want Mir, could he be used in a swap deal for Lucas Ocampos. Some reports are claiming this might happen.

{Ed002's Note - Yes they do and they may sell him straight on for a profit. They have an option to buy cheaply and he certainly won't be an exchange for Ocampos whose is valued at way, way more.}

10 Apr 2021 22:24:50
Why would sevilla have an option to buy mir cheaply Ed? He is on loan at huesca who do have an option to purchase but wolves can veto this it is not obligation to sell at.

{Ed002's Note - Because Huesca have an option and Sevilla have an agreement with them.}

11 Apr 2021 11:00:30
Sorry Ed002's I meant Mir as part of a deal for Ocampos not a direct swap.

{Ed002's Note - No.}

12 Apr 2021 14:07:31
Huesca could buy Mir and sell him to Sevilla straight away. We did something similar, we bought Afobe from Bournemouth and flipped him to Stoke for £2mil profit. Mind you, Afobe had been a naughty boy and fell out with Nuno.

14 Apr 2021 13:21:56
Pretty sure it was confirmed that Huesca don’t have an option to buy.

{Ed002's Note - That is not what the TMS says.}

08 Apr 2021 09:32:45
Reading that Boly and Saiss will be missing next year for a month in the delayed African cup of nations, Nuno is talking about that so to me that clearly shows 1 his intentions are not to walk away and 2 fosun aren't getting rid.

The plan with nuno as head coach will remain I can't see anything different.

My view of course.

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Apr 2021 12:55:17
Hey Phil, I'm hoping your assumption is correct! this 'Nuno out! " is a lot of BS. A list of speculated managers with availability did not fill me with confidence at all. Nuno is learning on the job to a degree - I'm hoping this season's mistakes are learnt from and addressed.

Nuno for me has been a breath of fresh air not only to Wolves but to the PL - such a humble guy, doesn't make anything about him it's always about the collective, not the individual.

I did have a moan about his "we must find solutions" comment, but that is/ was born out of frustration and defensive issues not being addressed.

08 Apr 2021 14:05:45
Agree with both of you Phil and Debbie. To a degree Nuno is a victim of his own success in previous seasons raising expectations that after 2 seasons in the Premier League we deserve to be a top 6 club.

It's a season of transition hit by some bad luck and peculiar circumstances, with a couple of signings not working out as hoped. Find me a manager or a club who have a 100% success rate with transfers. I don't like to criticise the board as they have invested a lot, but it has to be in our minds that before Nuno they did appoint Zenga and Lambert. If they did get rid of Nuno whoever comes in could end up taking the club backwards - the fans don't get to choose the manager.

Nuno deserves time with the fans in the ground backing the team and I really hope he is given it.

08 Apr 2021 14:17:42
Hey Debbie your posts I read and enjoy everyone of them and never have ever thought you are a non believer in fosun and nuno.
I do agree it's a learning process.
I'm sure we will have our day and look back in time to the bad old days of the c. v. and this poor season.
Alex you the same a believer like debbie and myself.

08 Apr 2021 14:53:11
Nuno also in discussion with other Prem managers re pre season friendlies.

08 Apr 2021 16:27:21
Thanks Phil. I like to hope I offer balanced, realistic optimism.

08 Apr 2021 16:46:39
Alex I can't fault any of your posts no worries should you have in my opinion.
The internet can be head doing on social sites, I personally only use this site no other,
I find this site with all the posters enjoyable.
Hope long may you mate.
Come on you wolves let's stuff Fulham tomorrow night and we all have an extra happy weekend.

08 Apr 2021 17:04:12
Look back through history and all managers have signed players that haven't worked out and I looked at this jose guy and thought yeah he'll do me but I was wrong. I looked at the kid silva and thought no no no. but I've changed my mind on him cus he's going to be a gud un. My mates a red and he says solskaer was just the same . And look what a player he turned out to be. there was also a guy we signed from bpa and I remember fans saying this guy ain't got it. a certain kenny hibbit thought otherwise. Nuno has probably learned a lesson this season and I really can't see him giving up or making the same mistakes and if he goes it will be the sack cus think what you want but he loves this club and unless we want a Bruce or allardyce down here then let's get behind him. Cus we am wolves ay we.

08 Apr 2021 17:47:59
Lexluna, People say we need an attacking midfielder. I mentioned the 5 or 6 that Nuno has had access to but apparently doesn't like or trust or DOESN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH.
Add to that the strikers that he didn't like who have a lot of potential.
Add to that that he doesn't know what to do with Traore and will sell him so we forget that Nuno doesn't know how to change his system to adapt to anything that wasn't in the book he read about coaching counter-attacking football.

Nuno is TOO inflexible and set in his ways to adapt to coaching attacking possession based football.

Plus he has his favourites who are mostly from Portugal.

08 Apr 2021 17:49:19
Debbie, how much confidence did you have when Nuno was appointed and why? I'd never heard of him.

08 Apr 2021 19:06:06
I have been watching Wolves since the 70's under Nuno I have enjoyed the best polished skilful exciting football I have ever seen at the Mol.

Troubled waters, yep, oddest season ever yep.

Nuno gets my vote of confidence, he's earned it, I would not judge any manager on this season would be madness.

08 Apr 2021 21:39:37
Timmy T, you must live in a cocoon. Manager of two of Europe's biggest clubs (Porto and Valencia) and you'd never heard of him?

10 Apr 2021 08:31:38
Alex is right we got 7th after promotion and when we got 7th again people were saying he has to go

This season has been hard especially with the injuries but we could still have about 50 points at the end

Nuno does his best and I like his style and which PL manager who would come to us would we want instead?

08 Apr 2021 09:17:24
Just reading in the E&S that Saiss and Boly very well may be heading to the Africa Cup of Nations. Surely defence has to be addressed during the Summer window?

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Apr 2021 16:52:24
I would be shocked if we don't sign a centre half this summer.

Regarding Dion Sanderson he is having rave reviews at Sunderland only nuno and his staff will let us know if he is in our first team. plans next season.
He being a local homegrown the sentiment for this to happen is the happy ever after, like Sanderson becoming a legend for wolves like Gerrard was for liverpool.
Interesting how things will develop this summer.

09 Apr 2021 10:42:56
I hope Sanderstead does come good but playing against striker's at that level is a long long way off playing against your kanes and vardys.

31 Mar 2021 09:53:49
I think the problem is not the players its Nuno what about Jotta he can play any where in the front line look at the goals he is scoring nuno didn't know that.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Mar 2021 10:07:17
Nuno didn't know Jota could play anywhere along the front line? So why over the 3 seasons he was with us did he play on the left, right and indeed the centre. Or is that not the entire front line.

He was used predominantly on the left to supply Jimenez who is the one who cannot play any other position along the front line. The main reason why he was used on the left however is because he is a left winger.

01 Apr 2021 14:13:43
Nuno is not flexible in what he allows players to do and that is why Adama will thrive when he leaves.
Same with Cutrone. And Mir. And Goncalves.

{Ed077's Note - Adama is bang average and that is not in any part due to Nuno. IMO}

01 Apr 2021 15:24:20
Thank you for your input Ed077. I'm sure the top teams in Europe who are thinking of trying to acquire him will stop based on your insight.

{Ed077's Note - they should😁😁. He's nowhere near as good as the media hyped him up to be. Very inconsistent end product.

01 Apr 2021 15:26:40
If you think not adjusting the team formation to account for three people watching Adama is not Nuno's doing, or will not change the fortunes of Wolves, then I'm afraid you don't know too much about sports.

{Ed077's Note - I probably don't.

01 Apr 2021 15:51:08
I was watching one game and one commentator said that, in fairness to Adama, three people were watching him. The other one immediately said how that means there is more open space on the rest of the pitch.
Can you tell me what Nuno has done to take advantage of that extra space elsewhere because I have trouble seeing it on the television.
Do you think it is Adama's responsibility to tell his teammates where to be in that extra space or is it Nuno's?

{Ed077's Note - I think it's up to the players just as much.

01 Apr 2021 16:15:30
You clearly don't know how Nuno operates if you think players can be running around outside of where he tells them to go - which is one of his weaknesses.

{Ed077's Note - probably I don't.

01 Apr 2021 16:34:43
TimmyT, I doubt you knew anything about Goncalves before he moved back to Portugal. Just because he's doing well now doesn't mean we should have kept him when he clearly wasn't good enough. De Bruyne and Salah at Chelsea spring to mind.

02 Apr 2021 11:47:13
There's only one person on this post who doesn't know anything about sports Timmy, and it certainly isn't Ed077.

03 Apr 2021 11:22:32
I don't think Traore is average. He just doesn't look happy this year. Had a great season last year, but started behind Podence and Neto at start if the season. Another strange decision from Nuno. How to deflate a good player. He certainly wasn't bang average when he put the Spain shirt on.

{Ed077's Note - In my opinion he is. It's just an opinion. He has game changing ability but no consistency at all to be any better than average IMO. A bit like Nani for Man Utd.

03 Apr 2021 13:39:53
It depends how you use him. He needs to be told to just go at full backs to get the best out of him, which is when he looks unplayable.

04 Apr 2021 09:14:35
One commentator compared Traore to a learner driver driving a Ferrari.

04 Apr 2021 18:49:01
Traore will be like Jota, Wolves fans won't appreciate what they have until he's gone.

05 Apr 2021 18:12:57
I for one, can't wait to find out Ray :)

Seems 9 out of 10 games a waste of a spot, we could have had a footballer playing in his position.

05 Apr 2021 20:44:23
Who! Look at Wolves bench and the under 23s, no one in sight. To be honest though the defence is a far bigger worry, with Boly out they are easy meat. They are very close to being dragged in to a relegation dog fight.

06 Apr 2021 11:33:13
What has our best defender Max Kilman ever done wrong? And our second best is now out injured again, probably for the rest of the year and the third best is at Sunderland.
Coady and Saiss have run their time.
Give Fabio and Vitinha more playing time
And Traore? Someone please bloody sign him. at this rate we won't even recoup what we paid for him.

07 Apr 2021 12:31:15
If we do sell Traore he improves a lot if he moves on., IMO it wouldn't just be down to the player's motivation. I agree with the Kilman comment. He has hardly put a foot wrong when he's played so why not recall him? It seems bizarre that they recalled Gibbs White to fill in the mid field and not Kilman for the defence. There seems to be a depressing atmosphere in the team at the moment. May be because of the league position, may be not. Much as I love Nuno, I wonder if he's up to the job?

I am dreading the transfer window. Comments of "In Nuno we trust" are not going to console me if several of our best players are sold and are replaced by promising youngsters.

We were told that players sold will be replaced by a better players. It is debatable whether that has been the case or not.

08 Apr 2021 17:40:42
Don't be so hard on yourself, Rated RKO.

08 Apr 2021 17:38:41
Ed. Why do other teams' players continually trip Adama if he is bang average and gets no goals or assists?
Do they like picking up yellow cards for nothing?

{Ed077's Note - because he is fast and tricky. There's always a chance he has a good game and performs well, like he did against Man City last season. Are you really happy with how he plays most weeks when you know how treating he can be when he plays to his best and actually produces something (end product ).

28 Mar 2021 15:26:40
Some papers are saying we may sign Ronaldo. I'm not saying it's definitely going to happen but this is a rumours site.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Mar 2021 20:20:35
Lazy journalism, this has been cropping up for the past 3 transfer windows. The press just recycle old articles.

02 Apr 2021 09:47:23
If we sign Ronaldo I'll stand at top of St Peters steps wearing just a fig leaf. more chance of signing renato. & the other one rennie . Anyone remember them lol.

21 Mar 2021 14:08:33
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.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Mar 2021 09:39:39
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.

22 Mar 2021 11:05:17
I know they don't play regularly but Gibbs White and Otasowie have come through our ranks.

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.

22 Mar 2021 17:14:02
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.

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.

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

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!

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

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.

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.

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

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..

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

09 Mar 2021 16:47:52
See news of Nunos request that the team should play from the first whistle as they mostly do in the second half.
I really thought it was an energy conservation plan! COYW.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Mar 2021 17:17:25
Could it be that we are fitter than most, wear our oppenents out and slowly improve through the game.

11 Mar 2021 13:25:04
Problem being we’re always at least one goal down by then, scoring first and holding on when they tire would be a better plan.

15 Mar 2021 22:54:23
That Jota chap looks a mighty good player doesn't he boys 😂😂😂

What, you sold him and spent a record fee buying Fábio Silva 😂😂😂

I bet none of this was in Nuno's infamous dream 😂😂😂

Told you boys long ago, Nuno got rid of your best players and bought in rubbish, that is why you are nowhere near the team you were last season.

Mind The Gap. 😂😂😂😂.

16 Mar 2021 09:57:56
AVillaFan, a question for you. Why exactly do you post on the Wolves forums, exclusively when we lose, but never seem to post on the Villa site?

Also why are you having ago at Fabio Silva when, as you say he is so poor but has a better record than Villa young messiah Keinan Davis. That's right, Keinan Davis, the striker with 0 (zero) goals in 58 league games.

16 Mar 2021 09:40:41
And villa breaking the record book's are they. Shows how good they are without the snotty nosed fall guy that keeps buying cheap free kicks and that's why no big clubs have come in for him. he was hated at his junior club as well cus its all me me me me . we'll see about the gap when you can't spend next season.

16 Mar 2021 10:43:33
He's obviously got too much time on his hands.

16 Mar 2021 20:58:51
Avillafan why do you come here for? Are you after attention or something?
Mind the gap, you lot are only in the prem due to an hawkeye error you are there on false presences go back under your bridge.

27 Mar 2021 16:36:39
He will be off the page when more posts are posted.

04 Mar 2021 16:20:16
Twitter says the Italian press are saying that Wolves are considering Gennaro Gattuso if Nuno leaves.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Mar 2021 05:17:53
Not that I want Nuno to leave, but every team Gutasso has managed has been for a maximum of two seasons.

14 Mar 2021 21:40:03
What about Nuno before Wolves?

15 Mar 2021 23:04:15
Nuno will be gone soon, bought in average players and allowed your best tallent to walk. Any manager looks good when he has a good team it's when they move on and need replacing that is key and he has failed miserably in that department, his tactics are also poor when Wolves are under pressure.

16 Mar 2021 10:10:47
AVillaFan, over the last 10 league games, Villa have won less points than Wolves, so if we are poor, what does that make Villa? In your final 11 games you've still got to play: Spurs (twice), Man City, Man Utd, Everton, Chelsea and Liverpool. Let's see how much better you are than us at the end of the season.

{Ed077's Note - he's just a troll ATM, dont bite and he will slow down}

04 Mar 2021 08:14:26
What's with the rumour that Max Kilman is not trusted by Nuno and will be sold? I would have thought that Max would be one of the last to be sold! Just my opionion.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Mar 2021 12:26:28
It's come from Talking Wolves, that guy spins more bs than a cattle farm.

08 Mar 2021 19:54:49
Have to agree Doog, iv been very impressed with Kilman seems solid for me should be in the starting lineup.

02 Mar 2021 22:40:48
It was a telling sign that Nuno doesn't think Jose works hard enough to play any part against city. Of course he is right. Which begs the question what future does he have with us. I expect to see him back against Villa but I think we should be looking to sign a better option in the summer.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Mar 2021 11:09:01
That’s what happens when you let agents decide who to sign and who to sell, uninterested players who don’t want to be here and players who are just passing through on their way to the big Clubs, one or ‘em even managed to sell Doherty to a Club who’s Manager doesn’t rate him very highly. could do worse than buy him back, sure Nuno didn’t want to lose him.

03 Mar 2021 11:48:14
Are you suggesting Jorge Mendes has illegally tapped up a player who he doesn't represent and got him to leave Real Sociedad and join us on loan. Please name the agent involved and how he/ she is making the decisions.

03 Mar 2021 11:52:40
Doherty admitted that he knew Nuno wanted to sell him. So Spurs thought they got a good deal for 15m.

03 Mar 2021 14:47:22
Jas; Didn't suggest any Mendes involvement, it's been widely reported for at least twelve months that Sociedad have been trying to move the player on and his agent who seems to be Nick Arcuri has been trying to get him a move to the Prem Man U, Spurs and Newcastle were linked (mainly by said agent) and he made it happen. which is his job but doesn't mean the player is happy to be here or wanted the move or indeed that he was the player or even the type of player that Nuno wanted. seems as if it's a move orchestrated by administrators and agents with little or no consultation with the "Head Coach".
That's all I was saying.
