Olympiacos about to be banned for match fixing according to a report today. Oh dear, we have unfinished business with them at Molineux. I wonder if a ban would affect this?

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Apr 2020 05:56:11
I saw that. Saying they are likely to be relegated to the Greek second league. I imagine they will also be blanket banned from all comps. With us going straight through.

26 Apr 2020 19:00:34
Funny old world if we went through to quarter finals that way. Not half as funny as Alan Pardew being saved from relegation, miles from safety, and all because the Dutch league has been declared null and void. Pardew claims he is not taking his bonus for avoiding relegation. Would have paid for a few taxis in Barcelona!

26 Apr 2020 23:58:29
This is probably academic anyway (as it could all be cancelled) but would it come into force this season then? Surely any punative measures they got would happen for the next tournament? Otherwise it wouldn't be fair on those teams they've already knocked out of the tournament? 🤔.

27 Apr 2020 08:41:35
Got a point there TBF bullys. Man City wouldn't get immediately kicked out of the CL for their mishaps. We will find out I'm sure. The resumption in August for european tournaments has been banded around a lot.

22 Apr 2020 12:56:07
Loris Karius on loan.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Apr 2020 15:16:03
John Ruddy is a better keeper in my opinion. Karius was up to his ol' "butterfingers" antics at Beşiktaş.

22 Apr 2020 23:03:11
If Ruddy does leave, surely Andreas Sondergard should be given a chance. Very highly rated.

23 Apr 2020 13:16:04
Have to be honest I find the time line on the Karius tie suspicious at best! So Ruddy is tied with a money making move to Besiktas then a day or so later we are tied with Karius?! Seems to me like both stories are just part of contract negotiations between the club and Ruddy to be honest. Not even sure why Karius would want to come to us if honest, he can sit on a bench at Pool cause that's all he'd do for us! 🙄.

24 Apr 2020 14:35:39
@ BullysBoy II Isn't Ruddy out of contract at the end of the season? surely he'd be available on a free to any club?

24 Apr 2020 17:13:24
Yeah Debs that's kinda the point because it makes it VERY likely that Ruddy and the club are looking at extension options, in which case a little story saying he has other options just helps his bargaining position. As does another article reminding him that the club also have options (Karius) . Just not sure why Karius would want to come and watch Particio play?!

20 Apr 2020 07:43:38
Heard a rumour that Tyronne Mings is very much on our radar when football gets back up and running. with villa's impending drop.

I imagine he may still command a hefty price tag though.

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath.}

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Apr 2020 14:47:19
Didn't realise we were looking for a new cleaner. Let's face it, he ain't getting game time for us.

20 Apr 2020 19:09:16
He was getting game time for England.

20 Apr 2020 19:53:50
He ain't good enough for England or Wolves. Even Villa fans don't rate him.

21 Apr 2020 07:27:10
Not saying I think he is our top target someone who I would go all out for.

But he certainly is a good footballer and someone I think you will find they do rate haha!

21 Apr 2020 12:41:23
I work just around the corner from Villa and am surrounded by Villa fans. They all say the same thing. Last season and the beginning of this season he was good but since winning an England cap, has become arrogant and is a liability.

22 Apr 2020 00:38:04
Haha there is absolutely no way we would pay the crazy amount they did for him and they won't sell him at a loss (especially not to us)! Add to this I don't think he's good enough to get in, sooner start Kilman thanks (and he's just extended his contract) . The England call up was part of Southgate any player gets a chance instead of Connor Coady initiative and frankly the guys form since has shown how foolish the call up was! For a big lad he doesn't half bottle a lot of headers, it's why Bournemouth moved him to LB. Bet they can't believe they managed to steal £20m for him! 🤣.

13 Apr 2020 08:20:48
Wolves should sign Dries Merton's from Napoli on a free he's 32 but like Moutinho pure class and bags of experience.

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Apr 2020 14:01:46
Would he be willing to drop his wage demands as he's currently on £125k a week. I think he'll sign for Chelsea.

13 Apr 2020 14:03:45
Plus we've got Shabani and Jordao coming back from injury. If we do sign a midfielder, hopefully it will be someone aged in their mid 20's so we have them for a while.

15 Apr 2020 00:34:02
I do like Mertens but there's a reason he's leaving on a free and it's cause for a player that mostly realies on speed age is a big factor! If the club go for him then of course I'd give him a chance but personaly (similar to Jas) I'd sooner stick with the youngsters we already have, especially at the level of wages being quoted👍.

15 Apr 2020 21:19:40
A new back up for Raul seems the most likely. Have no idea who though!
Would you trust in campana or try and go for a bigger name back up. Seems we either go for a young up and coming. Or fine aged quality.

Would you take a Teemu Pukki sort. Or aim higher.

23 Apr 2020 20:29:38
I do like Puki and he can finish but I'm just not sure he'd be mobile enough for how we play? There's a reason getting back up for Raul will be hard and its because we REALLY do have one of the hardest working and most talented strikers in the league right now! It's a difficult one but in a weird way a good problem to have! Let's just hope in Campana they've found another South American gem 👍.

27 Mar 2020 14:08:38
Raul has come out and said in as many words that he will be staying in an interview.

His contract is till 2023 and he is happy. Also it doesn't matter if we don't get into the champions league. He is doing important things at Wolves.
.
If this turns out to be the case I'm more than happy!

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Apr 2020 20:34:40
I hope yow lot am keepin' okay!

05 Apr 2020 16:46:12
All good Debbie. Stay safe.

11 Apr 2020 07:20:19
Stay safe out there you lot. Beautiful game can wait
Bloody miss Saturdays though!

23 Mar 2020 07:02:51
Rumour. Wolves interested in John McGinn.

I'd snap him up for sure. Great competition in that midfield will be needed.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Mar 2020 19:08:08
Haha, how exactly has this developed as a new rumours not like they've been scouting him?! Have to be honest I don't get the hype with McGinn, seems to have one good game in three then spend the rest of the time injured?! I wouldn't sign anyway but also consider that he would cost a fortune due to recently signing a new contract. Why spend big money on what will only be a squad player next season, cause there's NO way I'd pick him over Jaoa or Reuben! Save the money and go for someone like Beundia after Norwich go down he'd be a great squad player. For a start he'd be half the price and looks every bit as good as McGinn to be honest. COYW ;)

23 Mar 2020 20:49:42
In fairness Bullys good point. I've been singing Buendia's praises all season. Would make a quality addition and a different element for creative force.

On John McGinn I'm going to have to disagree with you. I think he is a genuine top talent. In terms of midfielders he offers a few different qualities that add a another dimension. Very dynamic and drives the ball at feet brilliantly. Check out Tifo footballs assessment on him! Very interesting mix that he offers.

23 Mar 2020 21:56:35
I'd like to throw a name into the hat. Todd Cantwell of Norwich City.

24 Mar 2020 03:52:34
I think he is a very good player. Someone any team should be looking at.

Not sure he is a Nuno type player. The roll down socks and hair add to the Jack Grealish copycat style. He seems to fancy himself a bit more than our usual type.

I'm probably being a bit hyper critical there. Just don't see it somehow.

24 Mar 2020 08:12:28
I agree totally with Buendia from Norwich and think he would be a good addition to our central midfield. Don’t rate McGinn at all though. Seems like another Snodgrass type player to me - capable of the odd bit of magic but overall lacking in real quality.

24 Mar 2020 15:35:32
Again last I will say on this one. Completely disagree with that also. I think he has bags of quality. I might be going out on a limb but I don't care think he will be a premier league player for years to come.

Best asset he is a workhorse who is industrious enough to get forward. Has a lovely balance for a midfielder. Most importantly he seems to have exactly the right attitude to be a success and fit in for us. The Snodgrass link makes no sense to me. But fair play different strokes.

24 Mar 2020 23:00:48
What's this with players from relegation certainties? Not in the class that we are now in. Come out of the time warp, folks.

25 Mar 2020 11:05:02
So, Old Wulf, you're suggesting Jack Grealish et al, are not in the same class as our team because their team is in danger of relegation? I think Grealish would slot in to any prem team. Many others as well.

25 Mar 2020 21:07:29
Cantwell will sign for a bigger team when Norwich go down which is probable and he is one we could loom at as for McGinn I like him and he was good at Hibs but my gut says he has peaked and will be rattling around relegation clubs or Celtic for the next few years.

26 Mar 2020 19:11:16
Not sure who your 'et al' are Belfast but Grealish may be the exception to the rule although I think he's very much in the Dele Ali flatters to deceive mould. The two Norwich players mentioned above don't consistently get in their team which, let's face it, is currently no better than mid Championship standard. McGinn is hard working and a Mick McCarthy ' put a shift in' type. Is he really good enough? Someone else mentioned Snodgrass, almost certainly in jest.

27 Mar 2020 09:20:50
Again, Old Wulf, you think Grealish "flatters to deceive", guess a lot of prem lge managers are easily deceived then. Silly men, eh? Think Ake, C. Wilson, R. Fraser, J. Lewis, Buenida, Cantwell are a few who will be on a lot of managers' wish lists if worst happens. Just my opinion mind.

27 Mar 2020 15:13:54
Indeed, Belfast, it's all about opinion. I did say that Grealish was the possible exception. As for the others you mention, I agree that they'll all be in demand but I doubt very much if they'll be of interest to top 6 clubs which should be the waters that we are now fishing in.

28 Mar 2020 19:34:53
Old- thing is, you yourself have just proven how FAR more nuanced transfers are than just going 'well the team they played in got relegated so they must be poor players"! You mention Buendia doesn't get into the Norwich team but there's a reason for that, quite simply they are now having to play a game that's more about defending than creativity. For example did you know that Beundia actually has the highest average ratio for points to games played in the entire Norwich team? Or that he is only 23 and improving in quickly? I just think its too simplistic to go well they play for a relegation bound team so they must be poor, if you don't believe me wait till the end of the season and just watch the tug of war some of the top teams have over Jamal Lewis and Max Aarons. Both players have been part of one of the worst defences in the league but that doesn't mean that a quality manager with a good eye for a player and a bit of self belief wouldn't think that at 20 years old both players aren't fantastic young prospects.
Tell me this then Old guessing you don't think we should have signed Traore then? Cause he was relegated with Villa and then even worse from there made a sideways move to another Champs club (Mids) so by your reckoning he could NEVER be a top six player now? I suspect some of the biggest clubs in the world will be in disagreement with you come the next transfer window, fingers cross your right! ;)

28 Mar 2020 23:57:19
Robinson signed by Liverpool from a relegated Hull has turned out to be one of the best bits of business in seasons! The list of 'exceptions' is quite large and therefore does suggest it's worth considering? 👍.

31 Mar 2020 12:34:58
I think that the number of clubs in for Grealish may have reduced as a result of his latest exploits. Complete and utter tripe!

31 Mar 2020 14:59:12
Haha very true Old! I can't stand the guy but it really is a shame that he seems SO intent on self destructing. I mean even if I don't like him he clearly has some talent but it seems he is determined to waste it playing lower level Prem/ Champ footy! I mean the end of this season really was his last and best chance for a move to a TOP club and he does that! The guy clearly has a problem as he has ALWAYS shown a complete lack of self control! He also left the scene so I hope the police hammer him for that, what a disgrace!

31 Mar 2020 15:12:19
Ps- I bet Villas board are FAR more angry than anyone! They were ALWAYS going to stay regardless of what league Villa finished in and he's just slashed over half off his value in one evening!

31 Mar 2020 15:46:15
*sell*.

14 Mar 2020 19:33:23
So with nothing to report due to suspension of the matches, the sports hacks are reporting that Man utd, Arsenal, spurs etc are looking to buy any and all our players, rubbish journalism.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Mar 2020 21:14:34
Jumped up college boys from London and Manchester with no proper journalist skills whatsoever.

15 Mar 2020 08:58:36
Totally agree. What I find particularly irritating is that these people seem to be living in the past and still think that the so called big 6 clubs can cherry pick the best players from other clubs. The reports are all written along the lines of whether Arsenal or Spurs or Man U decide to take our players - as if it is their choice - with no understanding or recognition of how the football map has changed. Reality is that we are a big club, a very well run club with rich and ambitious owners and a head coach who is fantastic. We have a great group of players who are improving and the club is on the up. The old order is no more.

{Ed001's Note - the reports are written like that because they are aiming for the most clicks, rather than about being true. You get more clicks by linking a player to Liverpool/Man Utd/Arsenal etc than other teams. So people write about them. It is pure clickbait and if people just stopped clicking on them they would go away.}

15 Mar 2020 13:52:14
Good point Ed.

{Ed001's Note - drives me mad. The likes of NewsNow have 99% of crap in their links but they refuse to do anything about it as they don't give a toss about the people reading. It is all about getting clicks.}

15 Mar 2020 14:43:06
ED001 and everyone else here - if you want to see clickbait fodder look no further than the Brum Mail. They use the most misleading headlines, mix and match to stories to concoct the fraudulent headline. Another thing that irks me is when the likes of HITC quote other rubbish sites.

As a side note, I remember the BBC once issued statistics about the gossip stories they publish and the paper with the highest accuracy was the Guardian - that accuracy was 15%.

To quote the great Eamon Dunphy "Football is just soap opera for men"

{Ed001's Note - I try and avoid papers like that and I never look at HITC it is pure dross and badly written dross too.}

15 Mar 2020 18:32:19
Agreed. Most garbage usually comes from Alex Dicken and Birmingham Live. Utter tripe.

10 Mar 2020 16:20:33
The James Rodriguez rumour is starting again.
Never happen.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Mar 2020 20:04:07
I laughed when I read that this morning. The source said "national paper reporting" I hovered over the hyperlink, low and behold it was in The Express! hahahahaha.

05 Mar 2020 01:12:32
Everton, West Ham and Wolves are in the race to sign 24-year-old Mexico winger Hirving Lozano from Napoli.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Mar 2020 09:42:08
Ex-Wolves Stephen Hunt reckons that Matt Doherty should move to a "bigger club" like Arsenal or Spurs in the summer! Bigger?

05 Mar 2020 09:58:19
Look at the table Hunty!

05 Mar 2020 14:46:54
He should if they pay him more. He is underpaid at Wolves.

05 Mar 2020 15:33:48
Stephen Hunt went on to a bigger club post Wolves: Ipswich Town F. C.

05 Mar 2020 17:40:46
Haha yeah Timmy cause Spurs and Arsenal are renowned for paying well?! That'll be why they consistently lose players over wage disputes is it?! Stephen Hunt was never an especially bright guy so this does not surprise me! How much is he on then Timmy? I would like to know what you see as underpaid?

05 Mar 2020 22:32:46
£10,000 per week. Is Jonny worth 3.6 times more (£36,673)?

05 Mar 2020 23:27:26
Timmy I can see where those numbers are coming from but I would take them with a HUGE pinch of salt! For a start I am sceltical how much is based on fact rather than guesses and second they have no info on the finer details of the contract.

For example he may have had a yearly wage rise of 20% written in or more likely like the rest of the squad a HUGE bonus for getting Euro footy or maybe a £5k app and clean sheet bonus?

If he really has signed a four and a half year deal on that kind of money then he doesn't need a new club he needs a new agent! With that being the case I'm not sure what moving would achieve, with the same agent he will just move onto a similar contract!

Comparing it to Ottos is pointless, as we signed Otto from Athletico and would have needed to match hos wages to do so whereas Matt came from semi-pros Bohemians so just apples and pears!

06 Mar 2020 10:11:16
I don't think Doherty is the type of player who would leave just for more money. He is tremendously loyal and he knows that Nuno has made him what he is today. If Nuno had moved to Arsenal when rumoured, I think Doherty would have moved soon after. After all, Arsenal was his boyhood club. We shouldn't be complacent about any of our players. I hope Matt is going to be fitted with (old) golden handcuffs by a big new financial package.

06 Mar 2020 12:28:50
I think your right Deep, in so much as Matt has always come across as one of those rare breeds of fototballer who is actually grateful for what the club's given him! Still though I'm not sure his wages are on anyone but his agent. If any of us were buying a car and they wanted £10k who would actually be silly enough to go 'well actually I want to give you £30k for it'?! To be honest I think it just shows how well managed the club is, think about it how easy is it for us to improve his wages at that level if Spurs do come calling? Whereas if he's ALREADY on £30k+ and wants an increase well then that forces a decision! At 28 and currently on a four year deal the club is in a VERY strong position not sure any of us can complain with that? COYW 🐺.

06 Mar 2020 21:50:05
He has to provide for his family. If someone offered me 2 or 3 times as much as I am currently making I might consider it.

07 Mar 2020 00:16:35
Behave Timmy, anything over £1k a week and the 'provide for his family' line is almost offensive! Also you may 'consider' other options but if you'd signed a long contract it becomes somewhat academic! I get your point in that he deserves more but let's keep some reality with this eh ;)

08 Mar 2020 00:17:02
You should look at the numbers. The British/ Irish players get paid the least. Why is that? If Connor is good enough to play on the England team, why is he one of the lowest paid players?

08 Mar 2020 14:56:06
Thats just no.

08 Mar 2020 23:55:36
Sorry the above post was sent in error this is what I wanted to say:
Again though Timmy that's just not true! Sterling, Sancho, Maguire, Pickford and Kane are just some examples of England players that will be among the higher earners at their clubs! You've done what you always like to do and used two very niche examples to make a point that has little basis in truth. Also you need to look beyond the player and look at the aspects of the transfer i. e. has the player played at a high level previously like Neves (Porto) Jonny (Athletico) whereas like I said before Coady was at Hudderfield and Doherty at Bohemians. The problem is Timmy something like players wages is VERY nuanced, a whole number of factors come into it like how many moves they’ve had, which club they started, what age did they break into the first team?!
Like I said before I get your point with Docs but to suggest there's some kind of injustice going on with homegrown players just isn’t true, essentially as I’ve told you before a players contract is only as good as their agent and who picks their agent?!
I am surprised mind, if you want to pick a sector to champion on wages I salute you but please take some advice and stay away from football players! Even for Docs and Coady I struggle to find genuine sympathy for anyone who gets to play footy for a living and will bank between £750k-£1m this year (when you consider match and loyalty bonuses)! Maybe try looking at the NHS pay-scale and you’ll find me right in your corner! 😉.

03 Mar 2020 10:28:28
According to the Mail " Arsenal could be interested in Wolves and Mexico forward Raul Jimenez, 28, to replace Alexandre Lacazette, if the 28-year-old Frenchman leaves at the end of the season. "

Hardly a step forward for Raul?

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Mar 2020 13:51:21
Lolz'if only a tenth of these media fabricated click bait dreams come to pass'all we'll have left up the mol is the women and under 9s.

03 Mar 2020 13:53:17
Also read that Nuno is wanted by Atletico Madrid to replace Diego Simeone who is moving to PSG.

03 Mar 2020 17:59:50
There was a hilarious clickbait in the Mail (the above rumour was in the Express) Saying "Premier League Clubs Watching Sanderson" the non-article went on to describe how well he is doing at Cardiff, that was it. Some bored journo working from home, wracking his/ her brains feverously for a story, then just made one up.

05 Mar 2020 17:41:35
I've said it before and I'll say it again Arsenal couldn't afford him!
