Blackburn are demanding £2,000,000 for Marshall.

BB

22 Jan 2017 21:20:19
dont see what the big deal with marshall is about can he play centre half? he is playing for blackburn who are well shoddy so why do we want there players!?

22 Jan 2017 21:37:51
I have heard that we have offered that amount already'and that Blackburn had turned it down?

22 Jan 2017 22:55:41
Isn't it obvious that we need a striker and not another winger! Actually we also need a central playmaker (Price is not that man) plus a strong central defender in other words we need to sort the spine of the team out. Unless we do that we cannot establish consistency and make long term progress.

21 Jan 2017 17:55:16
Wolves would still like McCormack on loan but Fulham favorites.

21 Jan 2017 23:45:46
I think Bruce is trying to discourage would be suiters with his comments today saying McCormacks attitude is terrible and he's unfit. We'll have him for a few months.

22 Jan 2017 14:29:29
Is he a good option though? Down here the other week he was pretty useless. Hardly showing the form we are looking for up front

22 Jan 2017 19:24:51
Don't see this happening at all.

19 Jan 2017 10:42:02
Andreas Weimann in on loan from Derby till end of the season

19 Jan 2017 10:58:41
another winger zero goals this season.25 goals since 2009.is this really what we need?

19 Jan 2017 11:13:13
By all accounts he can play across the front line and prefers the central role, according to Tim Spiers on Twitter.

19 Jan 2017 11:24:08
Saw this on sky sports honestly had no reaction to it we all know we need a striker and goals badly and we sign a guy who has scored 4 goals in 40 apps like I hope i'm wrong and he gets the goals but this has flop written all over it not confident at all with the possible signings in this window if this is the type of guy we are going for

19 Jan 2017 12:04:01
Agree guys very disappointed with this one got to give a chance I suppose but it looks like another Danny Graham, Grant Holt and Yannick Sagbo to me.

19 Jan 2017 12:08:10
Imagine he will bang him upfront, you are all putting the mockers on him before he's even played a game for us. I wonder if you lot are fans or just enjoy spouting bollocks on here.

19 Jan 2017 12:20:51
Its just an opinion like I said I hope i'm wrong and he scores goals for us which we need

19 Jan 2017 12:37:29
He scored 12 in a season with Lambert in the premier league playing upfront and then got shoved out wide. I think he could be a very good addition for us upfront, Lambert obviously knows how to get him scoring. Let's give him a chance before we judge!

19 Jan 2017 12:42:10
He has often been played out wide at Villa and Derby. When Lambert played him upfront he was successful. Have some faith Wolves fans! Lambert knows what he's doing.

19 Jan 2017 12:42:26
Has anybody actually stopped and thought about this signing? Has anybody actually seen him play? Or is everybody so used to moaning that it just comes naturally

19 Jan 2017 12:51:06
Saw him a few times for villa actually liked him its just since than it hasn't really worked for him like I hope they play him upfront and not on the wing its just there's that worry with when we had graham that it might not work out

19 Jan 2017 12:54:48
My mate's a Derby fan and rates him, just doesn't get a run in the side as Russell is always ahead of him.

19 Jan 2017 12:57:02
Yeh seen him play a few times, definitely got to have the strikers roll, when done Lambo Thellwell and Big Jeff. 👍 Cavaleiro Weimann and Costa! 👍 Dicko now becomes 3rd choice imo.

19 Jan 2017 13:01:59
Another Austrian like Mairhoffer, ex villa like graham, daley, frogatt perhaps he will be the success and injury free player we all wish for, but the omens don't look good

19 Jan 2017 13:04:47
goodbye charlie mason

19 Jan 2017 13:12:34
I agree give the lad a chance but ask yourself would any of us yesterday say go and get this lad? I think not but I might be wrong.

19 Jan 2017 13:51:15
We've got nothing to lose the striker standard here is the lowest it's been in years I'm sure he will add to the group good luck to him.

19 Jan 2017 14:14:48
To those knocking the Weimann signing, here is what Paul Lambert thinks of him:

"He scored big goals for me when he was at Villa, against teams like Liverpool and Manchester United, and he certainly knows where the goal is. He knows English football and he knows the league and he is somebody who I have worked with and I know well"

19 Jan 2017 14:22:24
To be fair PL has got it right so far not that I didn't like Zenga passion I think watching wolves on tv then to now we have improved a lot and there is more organization to the team so hell with it let's give this player all the support us wolves fans can and trust Lambert tomato the right decision up the wolves!

19 Jan 2017 14:26:34
*to make not tomato haha

19 Jan 2017 14:34:54
I wouldn't be surprised to see Mason go. He's been scouted by Bristol City for the last 12 months. £5m would do it.

19 Jan 2017 14:37:52
For Gods sake give the lad a chance. I remember all of the "so called experts" saying Chris Woods was rubbish-Leeds have put a £15m price tag on him, Chris Martin-lazy and fat, now top scorer for Fulham. We will find out when he plays for us.

19 Jan 2017 16:25:32
Ben Marshall. Swansea or Wolves? Toss a coin

19 Jan 2017 17:16:10
Well said CovWolf.
He will do the business for us.

19 Jan 2017 17:23:23
Another over inflated valuation of yours Wavidsmith. No way can Mason have gone up in value since we acquired him and wasn't that for £3m? Not sure where you are getting your figures from but they are way off the mark - eg also your figure of £5m for Coady. At that rate, Caveleiro really is worth £7m but I think not!

19 Jan 2017 19:03:44
stop being such a stick in the mud Old Wulf. what's in a million here or there, anyway? besides which, coady probably is worth at least £4 million, especially when you consider wolves knocked back a £5 million pound bid for mason last window.

19 Jan 2017 20:57:43
Matty Taylor available but Wolves won't pay the big figures, so may well be Leeds. Can't believe Wolves would lose out with owners as rich as Fosun. Taylor is a real proven goal scorer, what do they expect?

19 Jan 2017 22:34:13
Why does everyone want us to waste money this window? Let's face it our season is basically over so may aswell bring through the youngsters

19 Jan 2017 22:50:50
Wavidsmith, Nouha Dicko is also a proven goalscorer at this level. He just lacks a bit of confidence after coming back from a horrific injury.

20 Jan 2017 07:05:00
It's a good piece of management. Dicko now has direct competition for the striker role and both he and Weimann have a chance to establish themselves by the summer. Weimann played his best football working off Benteke so maybe he will work well with Bod. By the start of next season maybe there will be more competition from Zyro and Ennis.

20 Jan 2017 07:44:48
This a Lambert's first signing. so we can assume he has given it significant thought.

Let's travel optimistically. I am just pleased the Manager now controls all 1st Team matters.

20 Jan 2017 11:12:19
Have to admit I would not go mad on getting players in this transfer window and pay over the odds, I would save money and keep till next season if I could not get them at a decent price.

At this present time I think we are okay and Lambert is doing very good, l think middle of table we will finish anything else will be a bonus, but next season we need to be ready and push for play offs at least and Fosun need to spend some serious money to get we challenging for promotion if Lambert wants some, we will find out.
Hope we can have a good cup run, you never now.

20 Jan 2017 11:28:18
I've read on Twitter that we tried to sign Weismann before he signed for Derby so I'm struggling to see how Lambert has had anything to do with this, he's Thelwells choice.

20 Jan 2017 12:28:14
Pure spin that they tried to sign him earlier IMO. This has PL dna all over it. Have every confidence that he will do well.

20 Jan 2017 12:46:25
I think everyone wants Dicko to get back to his best but how long do you wait?

PL should drop Dicko for BOD and play Weimann off the striker to use his pace. Mason can be back up for Weimann.

It would be great to see a Defender come in as I still feel that is our weakest area. January is such a difficult window to get value for money and a player on form. IMO it's Preseason starting from now

20 Jan 2017 12:54:45
One more stick in the mud please Wavidsmith. If you really believe Bristol City bid £5m for Mason then you certainly are living in cloud cookoo land. There would have been no goalkeepers or car drivers left in Bristol because they'd all have had their hands well and truly snapped off!

20 Jan 2017 13:26:13
old stick in the mud

20 Jan 2017 13:28:04
honestly, they did mate. I know it was on twitter, but they bid something like £5.5m last window. make what you will about it.

20 Jan 2017 15:49:32
Wonder if Williamson will play against Norwich, think I would play him if Jerome is playing looked strong in the air scored a good goal at the molineux because they gave him space.
Williamson would be a good choice to stop him, that's my opinion what you think wolves fans.
Also I would stick with Bod and Mason up front.

20 Jan 2017 16:14:05
Bigwolf - Before the Villa game, Danny Batth had made 246 headed clearances in the Championship this season, 61 more than any other player.

Batth has made mistakes, granted. How many goals has he prevented though?

Do you want batth to be the one dropped?

20 Jan 2017 16:48:10
Unfortunately it's generally his feet that are the problem, Jamespd, not his head.

20 Jan 2017 17:04:21
Oldwolf - compared to what quality of defender in the championship? And wasn't bigwolf referring to an aerial threat?

Do I put you in the section of wolves fans that just LOVE TO MOAN AND MOAN BECAUSE NOBODY IS GOOD ENOUGH, EVER?

21 Jan 2017 10:16:53
Lets face it - if his stats are better than zero goals in 16 games then he's better than the crap that is nouha dicko.

No time for sentiment in this game - ship him out. now . what he's done in the past has gone - time to move on.

Youre as good as your last game should be the mentality and I for one am fed up of strikers who can't score. From keogh to doyle to dicko. Get him shipped out to free up the space.

{Ed001's Note - so every time a player has a bad game you think the club should sell them and buy someone who had a good game in their previous one?}

21 Jan 2017 12:04:01
Jamespd1982 it's obviously you are a Batth fan fair enough, but can you honestly say that Batth as been playing well, by the way I am not moaning just stating a fact they can play him every week for me but football is a game of opinions and I think he needs to up is game and start getting back to is best form to continue in side with Williamson now fit.

21 Jan 2017 15:00:03
Thething. I think you need to show some more support for a player who has scored a lot of goals for our club. Dicko needs a goal soon no doubt about it, what he doesn't need is people like you slagging him off saying we should sell him because he hasn't scored yet after coming back from a potentially career ending injury. Have a bit more loyalty to our players

21 Jan 2017 15:13:29
Big wolf- my one point was he isn't error prone but he has made mistakes like all payers do in 90 minutes. As a centre back mistakes are highlighted more and even more so in Danny's case because he's captain. I'd argue that there aren't many better centre backs in our league. The other point was that having made so many headed clearances this season, clearly he is the choice to play against a big man if you thing Jerome is an aerial threat.

Bath's mistakes have been positional mostly and the lad has had so many different partners. It's no coincidence that his positional mistakes have dryer up recently now stears is consistently playing with him. Having said this, Williamson is also excellent but currently batth and stears have a good thing going.

Watch batth score 3 own goals today now I've typed this.

22 Jan 2017 08:47:36
Definetly should keep dicko around! People complain when a player isn't loyal to the club when they want to leave but then some fans aren't loyal to players when they aren't performing. don't get me wrong next season if nothings changed then get rid but why does it even matter this season now? Our seasons over basically, mid table finish. 3 good summer signings along with Graham and zyro, a good pre season then let's have it 2017/ 2018

18 Jan 2017 23:59:39
Heard tonight Wolves have had a bid 0f 1.8 million knocked back for Danny Ward, but is he any better than what we already have?

19 Jan 2017 00:59:42
Who is Danny Ward?

19 Jan 2017 08:14:26
OK found him! lol

19 Jan 2017 19:14:12
Rotherham have slapped a 5 million price tag on Danny Ward we won't be buying him!

18 Jan 2017 21:25:06
Scouts are monitoring Wolves winger James Henry who is out of contract in the summer and is available on a free transfer. The experienced 26 year old is currently on loan at Bolton until the end of the season.

18 Jan 2017 21:43:16
Bit confusing. Are you saying Wolves scouts are monitoring him or other clubs. I can't see us scouting our own player.

18 Jan 2017 11:57:03
Don't know if this true maybe someone on here will know more but i've heard that Leon Osman is on Wolves radar.

18 Jan 2017 13:49:52
I hope so but is it what we really looking for

18 Jan 2017 18:47:30
Speaking of Everton why don't we look at Phil Jagielka? Would be top notch in Championship

18 Jan 2017 20:02:10
No chance of jagielka he'll drop to a lower prem team before coming to the championship. And if he did come to the championship it would be with a club like Newcastle or brighton

17 Jan 2017 18:00:39
I think 4 or 5 quality players in the summer along with our young ones having gained experience over the next couple of months then we will hit it next season.

Big call is to try our best to keep costa. only thing stopping us would be a 40m buy out clause benfica like to put on there young ones or a premier club coming in. but anything can happen in football. have hope we might fluke it and make the play offs lol.

17 Jan 2017 18:40:28
I'm hoping our academy system will come to fruition - just look at Everton or Southampton, they're reaping the rewards now. I'm glad the younger players are getting a deserved chance. It also encourages younger players to sign for Wolves if they see others getting a chance. Just a thought UTW.

BB

17 Jan 2017 20:31:49
Villa defender coming. Was delayed bit but hear still on.

17 Jan 2017 21:00:13
Who is this flipping defender?

17 Jan 2017 23:01:43
don't know, but can someone tell me what happened to jordan graham? it's now a month over his predicted return date and he still isn't in training. that's slightly concerning.

18 Jan 2017 07:56:02
I don't believe any available Villa player is of the quality we require

18 Jan 2017 09:42:51
Only way to keep Costa is to fluke promotion through the playoffs. As unlikely as it seems it's not impossible so I won't write it off. £40mil release clauses for young players is getting to be the norm with the big Continental clubs, but pie in the sky in most cases. I reckon £10mil-£15mil would buy him when the time comes.

Realistically we will challenge strongly next season after recruiting a small number of quality players in the summer and bringing through our youngsters. Next season is going to be bloody exciting.

18 Jan 2017 09:55:00
Wavid I don't think it really matters about Graham until next season. Dicko is a shadow of the player he was pre injury, and Graham had the same injury so I think it will be a long time till we see the type of player he was becoming when the injury occurred. (I hope I'm wrong as his set pieces are quality)

18 Jan 2017 11:46:47
We were obviously right to be concerned last year about Dicko, Graham and Zyro. Looks like they'll never be the same.

18 Jan 2017 17:52:10
Just because Dicko is bad now doesn't mean zryo or Graham will be. I've got higher hopes for Zryo then Graham to be honest though as he really wants to be Wolves' first choice striker rather than a winger

18 Jan 2017 20:03:20
Graham had a set back apparently around October time I think

17 Jan 2017 12:35:20
Anyone else heard the rumour about Arouna Kone coming to wolves?

17 Jan 2017 12:50:48
Only what's in the paper, us and QPR linked?

17 Jan 2017 13:02:55
I saw it to I think he would be a good signing for anyone in the championship let alone us or QPR

17 Jan 2017 13:28:25
Lancs,

I saw that too. Wouldn't surprise me as we are unloading players and reducing the wage bill. QPR are strapped for cash, we're not We could be at the front of the queue for Kone, bit like a trade deal for the UK with Trump!

17 Jan 2017 14:21:16
"QPR have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Everton’s Arouna Kone on loan, according to GetWestLondon.

The newspaper understands that Everton want QPR to pay a “sizeable amount” of the striker’s £40,000-a-week wages, which the London club are not prepared to do.

Kone has made just six appearances this season under Ronald Koeman.

Kone suffered a serious knee injury in his first months on Merseyside and has been a bit-part player since for the Toffees.

His best moment for Everton came when he scored a hat trick against Sunderland last season. "

17 Jan 2017 15:00:11
Great player but very dodgy knee! might be fit to play Championship level, but big risk at 34 now.

18 Jan 2017 07:57:34
At £40k a week he is dodgy full stop. If he has a dodgy knew guess where the first tackles will go?

17 Jan 2017 00:18:22
Wolves are ready to pull the plug on Marshall deal and look elsewhere.

17 Jan 2017 08:13:32
The mls being league one standard. Are you sure?

Do you know how many international south americans play in the mls - or how usa football is progressing. The USA international team are as good as England, if not better.

At the end of the day the championship is an average league watched by a lot of people because of cultural influences. and because of that we think ours is the best - It isn't. I think that we have one of the most average leagues in existence. don't believe the hype!

17 Jan 2017 09:32:21
Its the 5th biggest league in the world enough said.

17 Jan 2017 09:33:55
Thething,

I'm not at all sure the MLS is League One standard, I did use a question mark. It's the general opinion but who knows? Lots of fans reckon the MLS/ SPL are roughly similar to League One, but probably the Championship is more the mark. That said, Robbie Keane would be on high wages anyway and that brings risks of unrest, as we saw in the past at Wolves.

17 Jan 2017 14:39:01
5th biggest league in the world. yes - in money terms - not quality.

You can go to almost any south american country and their top teams would wipe the floor with wolves, derby, newcastle. et al

17 Jan 2017 16:16:28
Thething I completely disagree with your opinion. I watch the Argentinean league when I go and visit my friend who lives there and I can tell you for a fact that the way we played against stoke, and other teams in the championship we could beat them comfortably let alone Newcastle and derby who are in the playoffs so your statement is incorrect.

17 Jan 2017 16:54:00
Yh that statement is way off now there more on league one standard then you get the odd good player just like league one

17 Jan 2017 17:44:07
SPL probably averages out at League 1. We wouldn't beat Celtic and, until a few years ago, Rangers. Hearts typically the 3rd best team and we're probably at least as good as them. But the bottom teams would be League 1 at best. Attendances are pretty dire.

16 Jan 2017 08:52:11
I haven't heard anything but wouldn't it be worth trying to take Robbie Keane until end of season and see how it goes?

16 Jan 2017 09:47:02
Been linked to Preston on a short term deal.

16 Jan 2017 10:03:58
I know, but wages could be a problem there, just think could be worth a shout as we could do with someone who can score a few goals.

16 Jan 2017 10:42:11
I would have loved Robbie in a few years ago. But, at his age of 36 and recent seasons in the MLS (League One standard? ) it would be taking a risk to sign him now. If he was one big wages, but not scoring, it could upset the dressing room. Good luck to Robbie and Preston though.

16 Jan 2017 10:51:57
Keane would be awesome, you never know he did play with Lambert at Celtic and Lambert took him to Villa on loan so they know each other well enough, like everything with us will come down to wages though.

16 Jan 2017 12:19:28
Seen a romour were after Stephen Kingsley LB from swansea?
Don't know much about him?

16 Jan 2017 12:49:45
Wolves don't need another left back, and they don't need another right back, either. Doc/ Hause on the left and Coady/ Iorfa on the right are fine. Change for the sake of it again in the wrong areas.

16 Jan 2017 13:16:46
Agree, the focus has to be a new forward, masons goal on Saturday was the first goal from one of our forwards since August which is just embarrassing, Think Dicko proved again he's not a lone striker. Always played his best along side Afobe in my opinion.

16 Jan 2017 13:50:39
Totally agree with you, I think in every other position for now we are fine, I know we could maybe get a better CM or CB but we need a goal scorer

16 Jan 2017 14:10:27
oliver mcburnie of swansea would be a good choice for a striker played well against us last week scoring 2, not getting game time down here at the moment,

16 Jan 2017 14:13:15
Considering Marshall is just a carbon copy of Coady, I don't see the point. Coady is starting to make a terrific right back and probably crosses better, too.

One CH, MF and Striker would be fine. Nothing more, just 3 quality signings in the right places.

16 Jan 2017 16:18:25
Marshall is the replacement for Costa when he leaves he will probably start if a wingers gets injured. I think it's going to be interesting when Zyro comes back, whether he plays or not.

16 Jan 2017 17:25:48
Coady's pass to Costa for that goal must be the pass of the season! I'm not sure about Marshall either. Implies Coady might be receiving interest from elsewhere. Or it might be that £1.4m isn't a lot of money at this level and Lambert can get him to punch above his weight.

16 Jan 2017 18:24:17
Wolves011, please understand that Costa is a left winger and Marshall is a right back or right winger. Therefore, how in Gods name is he going to be Costa's replacement, lol?

16 Jan 2017 18:28:00
Marshall is no better than Coady, in my opinion. Unless Coady is going to Newcastle for £5m, I can't really see the point of this transfer.

16 Jan 2017 19:11:12
Wavid have to disagree regarding Costa's position. Although he seems to be almost equally comfortable on either his right or left side and he covers ground across the pitch, he has been playing wide right with Cav playing wide left. Zyro and Graham are both naturally left sided players so with Wallace being allowed to leave and no desire to bring Henry back we are short of cover on the right. Marshall prefers an attacking role. Whilst I would love Costa to be here next season we have to be realistic. He has already declared his desire to get back to Benfica and failing that Prem vultures will have noticed the quality.

16 Jan 2017 20:21:56
Well said Victory v and buy the way we have just beat vile after waiting over 30 yes at home have you all forgotten already and back on the moaning gravey train

16 Jan 2017 21:13:44
I know they switch but Zyro and Cav are mainly on the right. Costa/ Graham left.

16 Jan 2017 22:23:11
New to this site but had to comment on Costa's position. He has never lined up on the left for Wolves - despite him being predominantly left-footed. Jordon Graham is mainly right- footed but usually plays on the left - it's modern-day football innit?

16 Jan 2017 23:05:58
Where do you get your sense of humour from Wavidsmith? I see you have put Coady's price up from £4m to £5m. He is such a limited footballer that he is worth £3/ 4m tops although he is doing a half decent fill in job at right backind. He struggles to run with the ball, pretty basic for a footballer really . If you honestly think Newcastle are interested in him I'd suggest that you go on Ebay to shop for a new crystal ball. Benitez is astute not stupid!

17 Jan 2017 08:50:17
Newcastle want Coady. Don't ask me why. The price? Around the £4-£5m mark

17 Jan 2017 08:57:31
and besides which, Coady is a really versatile player.

17 Jan 2017 09:07:58
The only conclusion to be reached from the above is that Wavidsmith hasn't been to a game this season, or watched one on TV for that matter. Costa starts on the right every single game. Him and Cav switch for a max of 10/ 15 mins a game, and normally immediately following a Costa corner when he is out of position.

You're even wrong on Zyro, who started all of his Wolves appearances so far on the left or up top.

Going back to original point, I'd be surprised if there's anyone available who could replace what Costa has brought to the team. We therefore need to have options available, so Marshall seems like a good start to me.
