Not sure how true this is but heard Wolves are one of a number of clubs that will make a bid on Sam Gallagher in the summer, around about £4mil has been quoted apparantly.
Anyone more in the know confirm this?

27 Mar 2017 19:12:18
We need to keep lambert simple. we also need to keep costa. nobody has confirmed there is a clause so we do not have to sell. bruma is the talisca saga all over again. 5 top players meaning 4m plus around the players we have now will be enough next season. changing a manager who hasn't yet been given the chance to buy his players just like jackett didn't. We could risk being in the same position next season. fact.

{Ed033's Note - Why would any Wolves supporter want a "simple" manager? 😋

25 Mar 2017 18:53:01
Costa is leaving when there is enough profit from him? what's to say there is a clause in the contract? if we sell we have no ambition. we don't need the profit to buy players. Morgan and moxey have gone. new era at this club. time to build around the good players. also would take seb larsson. charlie adam is rubbish slow and old.

25 Mar 2017 21:03:43
Apparently we are buying a player called Bruno (yes, another left winger) with the Costa money (£20 million) . Not really sure what it achieves buying and selling one great player at a time, apart from the fact it makes Mendes a lot of money.

25 Mar 2017 21:31:00
So Mendes is allegedly touting Costa for around £20 million to Premiership club's. If so, he will be looking at another couple of million for himself. £3.3 million in his back pocket in 6 months for selling the same player twice.

Anyone who still thinks that Mendes advising Fosun is a good idea is naive because there is such a conflict of interests, it's ridiculous. There is only one winner in that scenario and it's not Wolverhampton Wanderers.

25 Mar 2017 21:34:02
So £7m of profit in a few months doesn't constitute success? Come on.

25 Mar 2017 21:39:28
I thought we were after Bruma who is 22 years old and plays in Turkey. Bruno would not be a good signing as he is a 36 year old defender who plays for Brighton.

25 Mar 2017 22:46:19
Like I've just said, Statto, he is doing it again with this 22yr old Bruma guy from Galatasaray. He wants to buy him for £15-20 million and sell him to Liverpool or Tottenham a year later with a nice little £2 million in his back pocket. How can a team ever settle doing that?

25 Mar 2017 23:05:48
That sounds more like us, Jas lol.

25 Mar 2017 23:13:30
AC, £7m profit ordinarily is not to be sniffed at, but if we are only going to sign players to sell on for a profit every 6-12 months, we are never going to build a stable team to fulfil what we all want.

26 Mar 2017 09:27:15
The problem with turning our noses up at £7m is FFP. We need to be in a strong position in terms of FFP to build a team to challenge for promotion. We can't afford a transfer embargo or a huge fine.

26 Mar 2017 09:48:50
It will be up to Helder Costa if he doesn't play for wolves next season not Mendes. Mendes's job is to look after his Client and that's all he his doing its not his fault that wolves are fighting relegation and not challenging for promotion like Costa was probably promised at the start of the season. Costa is not a wolves fan and people need to stop thinking this about top players just because they kiss the badge tell us there happy say they love playing for the club but then as soon as the carrot is dangled there off there is no loyalty in football only money . If fosun give us all the money from the sale then how can we moan we are not the only club in world to lose a top player it happens every season it just we've never had anybody worth buying before lol. We'll be OK with or without Costa there will always be a wolves and we're going in the right direction. UTW.

26 Mar 2017 11:32:02
I agree with 1877stlukes. Whilst I’d love Costa to stay, part of me thinks he deserves to be in the Premier. These players are only one bad tackle from having their careers ended. Just look at Coleman in the Ireland-Wales game. He will have a long road back to playing football again. I certainly would have no problem with Costa leaving to play in the Premier. All I’d ask is that all parties go about it in a good professional manner, i. e. the player not going on strike, and the club not holding out for some ridiculous amount of money.

26 Mar 2017 11:44:12
I'd rather have Sako than Bruma or Costa. At least you know what you'll get, and is still an excellent player at this level. Far cheaper, too.

26 Mar 2017 11:57:47
Helda Costa can do what he wants if he wants to stay then so be it, but you cannot blame him if he wants to play at the top level.
This will be our problem until we get 11 players who are capable to get us promotion and obviously we are no were near the top 6 at the moment with players we have, the league position don't lie, just be thankful Fosun keep putting the money into the club.

26 Mar 2017 12:14:52
There may be a bit of a clue in the Fans Parliament notes about buying and selling I will see if I can find it
Ed is it OK to copy and paste the extract if I find it?

26 Mar 2017 13:36:58
Guys, you are right that if Costa wants to go then he will. My point was not anything to do with loyalty, it is to do with an agent advising the club. Mendes is fine doing his job as a players agent, but if he is being used as a consultant by the club as was being widely reported at the start of the season and many users of this forum have called for this to continue very recently, there is a clear conflict of interest.

The point of my post is that we should not be seeking the advice of an agent when it comes to player signings because the interest of the agent will always influence the advice given.

We should not become a short term stepping stone (by that I mean less than 12 months) for players to engineer bigger moves because it does not help the team on the pitch in the long term or the dressing room morale.

26 Mar 2017 13:23:49
This from Laurie Dalrymple from Fans Parliament Notes Part 1

Income sources over the past few years have now ceased. Most of how we generate income will now come from player activity (players being bought and sold)


27 Mar 2017 14:19:10
The Portuguese player Brumo we r up against Man U and Spurs 4 his signature valued at 20mill plus in the summer if Costa stays or goes in the summer depends on his loyalty if he goes we make few mill also I've read zyro and graham r back in full training wol want a friendly arranged 4 this week as they r going to need a lot of match practise.

27 Mar 2017 14:41:58
Agreed. The financial rules are such that Fosun are not permitted to inject additional funds. We can't both keep Costa AND buy another £20mil player. Player sales activity, in and out, will become more and more important as a means of refining the squad. It's all a financial tightrope in achieving the right balance. No team can "buy" promotion these days and by the same token the new rules are there to protect clubs from financial mismanagement, Portsmouth-style.

25 Mar 2017 12:48:21
Free transfers coming up in midfield: Grant leadbetter (Middlesboro, 31), Michael Carrick (Man Utd, 35), Charlie Adam (Stoke 31), James McCarthy (Everton, 26).

I'm sure you'll agree that these are some cracking Ince/ Rae type players that we desperately need next season.

25 Mar 2017 16:22:45
Other midfielders with contracts up this summer: Joe Ledley (Crystal Palace, 30), Jan Kirchoff (Sunderland, 26) and Sebastian Larsson (Sunderland, 31). Maybe out of reach but Xabi Alonso (Bayern Munich, 35).
If Mendes is still pulling a few strings there are a few of his Gestifute clients with contracts up this summer: Miguel Velosa (Genoa, 30), Anderson (Cortiba FC, 28), Danny (Zenit St. Petersburg, 33), Tiago (Atletico Madrid, 35), Danilo (Standard Liege, 21)

James McCarthy not available he is contracted until 2020.

25 Mar 2017 16:53:00
I would swop a midfield trio of Adams, Leadbitter and Carrick for Saville, Evans and Price a thousand times over. Add Sako (when Costa leaves), Hanley and Collins at the back and you've got the basis of a promotion team with a mix of youth and experience in the right areas. Why can't they just follow a simple plan like that this time?

25 Mar 2017 18:48:41
Sounds awesome. reality check, can't see it tbf.

25 Mar 2017 18:30:22
In a perfect world Vokes, Afobe and Dicko would be my three strikers and I'd personally get rid of Weimann, Mason and Bodvarsson right now.

25 Mar 2017 20:58:46
Still think PL needs another window with backing could provide a very successful outcome. Problem is, who departs.

25 Mar 2017 23:25:39
We need to convince John Terry to sign up.

26 Mar 2017 03:56:41
Wavidsmith for me, I think we shouldn't sign Collins or Hanley I would rather sign mbemna and someone like Reben Vezo.

I'd love Adam, with Saiss at the back, with Edwards or Bruma at CAM, front three with a clinical striker.

27 Mar 2017 15:25:02
There are lots of connotations, but I fear the way of building the squad will be somewhat schizophrenic again, i. e. 7 unknown left wingers and no midfield general or central defenders. Unfortunately, most of Mendes' clients seem to be wingers, lol.

25 Mar 2017 12:09:47
Andrea Butti will become director of football at wolves next season and run the club with Laurie Darymple. Thelwell will leave the club. Jeff Shi will remain but only as a fosun rep.

25 Mar 2017 13:08:12
If true Lambert's days are numbered, that's if he's not gone before. Can't see a British manager putting up with Butti in the dug out at games like Zenga did.

25 Mar 2017 13:28:13
I take it that you want Lambert out at all costs. Is there any way you'll give him a chance? Will any manager put up with Butti in the dugout? No one will want to manage us then so maybe the hierarchy will tell Butti not to go into the dugouts. Problem solved and Lambert can continue to build HIS team rather than a new manager coming in and starting all over again.

25 Mar 2017 16:35:14
If Wolves keep up their current form until the end of the season then it will be hard to justify letting Lambert go. I'd like to see him build his own team but I do wonder how it will work out with him and Butti, who will call the shots?
Haven't Butti and Mancini worked together before at Milan?

25 Mar 2017 21:06:34
This is my opinion . How can any manager be sacked if not had a full pre season. Not had a chance to bring his own choice of players and still get results. I know rough with smooth. But overall keeping us in the championship fight now is to me the biggest thing. Then build on.

23 Mar 2017 22:31:21
Danny ings on loan. tammy Abraham. jagielka. george freind. and 2 out and out all round cm who shoot. with that along with zyro and grahem can't see anyone stopping us . must get rid of Savile le batth stearman coady gladon silvio. and a few more. I'd rather have sako than wvieman. we also have mason to come back who has never been given a good run. I'm sure if he had played the same amount as bodvarsson he would score a lot more.

23 Mar 2017 23:27:40
Danny Ings will be involved with the 1st team at Liverpool once he's recovered from his injury. George Friend is a 1st team er at Boro. Jagielka would be a good shout as he's no longer guaranteed a start at Everton and offers the experience we clearly need. Abraham, again another good shout but he will be in demand so we face stuff competition.

24 Mar 2017 03:35:32
Liverpool constantly linked with new strikers and already have five so Ings could be a possible. Liverpool might prefer him to get regular game time and find his goal scoring touch again. Think he'd rip up the championship!

24 Mar 2017 07:45:39
Charlie Adam is available, also we could target some gems in other leagues, I heavily believe we can do better than ings and that why should we give mason a chance when every time I've seen him play he boots it over the bar.
Can't wait for zyro to come back.
Oh oh oh it's magic you know, Costa zyro caverlio.

24 Mar 2017 08:30:46
How about using our Scottish and Portuguese links to get the 'Scottish Messi' Ryan Gauld. Currently playing in the Sporting B team.

24 Mar 2017 11:12:34
omg, Jackett knew his stuff. Everton are putting in a £15 million bid for Chris Wood. And we thought we were being done out of only £4 million for him lol. Crazy.

24 Mar 2017 11:23:32
Chris Wood @ £15mil? Jackett knew his stuff but Moxey didn't.

24 Mar 2017 19:46:48
Zyro REALLY? I'm afraid you are in for a shock my friend if you think this guy is the answer. He got 2 goals at Fulham then that was it, he isn't the player before his injury so very much doubt he will be any better. Wolves011 take a pic of this and your welcome to throw it back in my face if he turns out half as good as what you think. My bet is he will be shipped out asap once Lambert cast his eye over him in pre season.

25 Mar 2017 12:18:35
How about Joe Ledley, out of contract at Palace.

23 Mar 2017 17:49:46
This is Information from my golfing buddy who knows a fella in marketing at the wolves.

Wolves will sign a 4 year £3M kit sponsorship deal with Adidas and a long term deal with Club Med to replace the Money Shop sponsorship. Both contracts with puma and money shop will expire at the end of the season!

Sounds exciting to me! What do we all think of this?

23 Mar 2017 18:14:56
If true, Fosun are using one of their other companies to sponsor us and provide more financial backing much like Man City are doing with Etihad.

23 Mar 2017 19:08:32
New sponsorship? That figures. No brainer. Fosun probably took over too late to unpick the controversial Money Shop shirt sponsorship this season. Moving forward, if it's true, Adidas would be ideal. Club Med? Well, it's a Fosun company but is the public image of Club Med compatible with Wolves?

That said, both companies would be welcome and not at all controversial after the Money Shop debacle.

23 Mar 2017 19:20:25
The Puma contract was already set to expire at the end of the season but as far as The Money Shop are concerned, they have a few seasons remaining unless FOSUN are willing to pay them off.

23 Mar 2017 20:33:46
I hope our next home kit is a proper old gold and not a continuing deeper shade of orange it has become.

23 Mar 2017 23:31:34
They could use Thomas Cook instead of Club Med?

24 Mar 2017 03:48:49
Yes, Thomas Cook. Let's go! They have a gold heart logo. Might look better than the Club Med trident.

26 Mar 2017 19:19:34
Andreas 'Chip' Butti and Robert 'Harry' Mancini taking over in the summer. Man. City cast-offs as spine of new team: Hart, Kompany, Y Toure.

23 Mar 2017 10:15:33
OK, so we read Fosun are looking at German clubs. Presumably to give our young players some experience in the Bundesliga!

Seriously, though, imagine the next Thomas Muller, Mario Gomez, Mesut Ozil or Bastian Schweinsteiger starting his first team career here. A German striker playing off Costa and Cav perhaps?

23 Mar 2017 14:52:18
If you read the report carefully, you'll see that they tried to buy the club BEFORE they purchased Wolves.

23 Mar 2017 14:54:42
They've changed the dates. It said 2015 this morning.

23 Mar 2017 15:21:35
There are so many incredible German league players who we could sign. It could be amazing.

23 Mar 2017 16:04:40
Lewis Holtby would be a good signing for us.

23 Mar 2017 16:10:01
Yes as would be pappledolplelous who is on loan this season.

23 Mar 2017 17:11:19
Sounds like a dinosaur, Wolves011. We've had our share of those.
I'll look him up.

24 Mar 2017 07:46:50
He's Greek. So not the best a spelling his name.

24 Mar 2017 22:14:42
imagine how big his shirt is going to be to get his name on the back UTW.

19 Mar 2017 11:44:31
Stop talking about new managers just because he played Saville left back. zengas choice of players. I predict lambert will spend 25m in the summer and we will be in top 3 by Christmas 2017.

19 Mar 2017 12:56:26
It was interesting hearing Doc talk about Saville a couple of days ago. Saville plied his trade at left back and was only converted to midfield recently, so people shouldn't really be shocked to see him there.

19 Mar 2017 15:49:16
I don't buy this rubbish about the pressures of playing at home. Every team in the country has huge pressures to perform in front of there own supporters. Do wolves think it is only them that get a bit of stick. Look at some of the sides in the championship who play in front of much bigger crowds than us week in week out and they seem to cope. No more excuses it time for these cowards to put in performances week in week out at home, and start sending fans home happy again. UTW.

19 Mar 2017 19:48:11
We can keep on blaming this and that for our performances when we play at home, but at the end of the day we have got to get sorted because if our home form was up to scratch we would be in play offs.
Why we can beat top clubs and lose to bottom clubs as got to stop, and molineux performances as got to change, we have to attack at home from the off then you will see the fans get behind the team, but if we play at a slow pace and defend deep with only one striker at home we deserve everything we get, Wolves fans have always been used to 2 wingers with attacking football at home from the off not boreing slow build up play with only one up front like the Rotherham game which was one of the worst games I have seen.

20 Mar 2017 09:41:28
I was at the Fulham match. Ironically Fulham played a bit like you want Wolves to play at home. Attacking football with two wide men. Luckily for Wolves they played a slow sideways-passing build up. I though Karl "the crab" Henry was playing for Fulham in disguise. Even in the final minutes they were passing every which way but forward.

20 Mar 2017 15:34:56
If we were to spend 25m in the summer, anything less than top 3 by Christmas would be a disgrace.

20 Mar 2017 16:00:12
We will probably have to spend a minimum of £25mil just to stand still. Costa has rumoured buy out clause for £25mil. If the PL come calling, he will be off (wouldn't you? ) . That equals nil expenditure
overall. If we spend £25mil on top of the Costa fee, anything less than top 2 would be disastrous.

20 Mar 2017 17:04:18
Top two next year? It takes years to build a side like Brighton have, even after spending big money. Just getting into the play offs would be a major achievement next year, especially considering Costa will leave.

I admit the squad is only 3-4 quality players away, but it takes ages for a team to gel. And we've seen before how difficult it is recruiting the right players.

20 Mar 2017 18:23:04
Fair point but trying telling Fosun. Main reason we got into such a mess this season is that Fosun tried to run before they could walk.

Anyhow I don't agree that playoffs would be that major an achievement next season for us with 3-4 quality players added. Our away form this miserable season is playoff standard. Considering that home form should be better than away form then we did get the more difficult half of the equation right. If our home form this season had been better than away form (as it should be) then we might have been strong challengers.

20 Mar 2017 19:24:41
I don't think what Fosun did was the problem. I certainly didn't here any of the fans complaining about 13 new players coming in at the start of the season. The biggest problem has been the lack of carrying on what was started and the fear of dropping the 'old guard'. Everytime we revert to Price and co, it equals disappointment but we never seem to learn.

20 Mar 2017 21:37:18
Success takes money I've said it before but look at our best player this season he cost us 13m cav has shown is quality at times 7m Ben Marshall looks decent for 2m. We all no you can get bargains out there but 9 times out of 10 you've got to spend big money to get quality. I don't think the spending will be a problem for fosun the only problem they've got is who they'll ask to spend it.

21 Mar 2017 11:10:30
Woy Hodgson according to Facebook this morning.

21 Mar 2017 12:46:20
Woy Hodgson? He's wubbish. We'd be welegated.

21 Mar 2017 14:04:14
But why Wolverhampton Wandewers? 🤔.

21 Mar 2017 15:27:04
I think Roy Hodgson would be a solid appointment for wolves and he's the kind of manager who has the knowledge to help fosun find there feet in English football. Love or loathe him he has a fantastic knowledge of game and he's well respected all over Europe. However I think that decision is for the summer right now we all need get behind PL and the boys and get away from the bottom of the league ASAP.

21 Mar 2017 18:08:48
Joking apart about Woy's speech impediment I think he would make a very decent interim coach for Wolves. His reputation and status would be immensely attractive to Fosun. But I suspect that Lambert is finally coming good and Wolves may go on a roll now. Long term, a Lambert younger track-suited type of coach is the better bet than a shorter term "safe pair of hands" Hodgson.

21 Mar 2017 20:10:27
I still see Fosun being interested in Karanka in the summer if results stay mediocre. No doubt he is in constant contact with Mendes about it.

22 Mar 2017 08:55:38
I did say last week Roy hodgson would suit wolves he'd b a great addition what do we do if pl keeps us up and just say we end up mid table roughly I thought I read somewhere that Middlesbrough were after hodgson.

22 Mar 2017 13:53:49
I'd be so gutted if we appointed Hodgson. Despise the fella after that final interview following the Iceland debacle.

If Hull go down and we don't stick with Lambert I'd be looking at Silva. Now he can speak English I'm sure Fosin/ Mendes could sell the vision to him.

22 Mar 2017 16:27:25
👍 just smith. If! Let's give him and the team a chance though. ⚽️👍😉.

19 Mar 2017 11:41:38
Wolves till I die. where is the moaning? 3 wins isn't going to compensate what has happened this season the deadwood still has to go. and the quality still has to come in. the only area we don't need at all is wingers and attacking midfielders. I'm sure we're in for a exciting summer.

19 Mar 2017 21:26:26
I agree 3 wins won't make up for this season but you can't blame lambert for that
Yes it's taken to long for him to make his mark but let's hope we can kick on now and get some momentum going have a good pre season and kick the crap out and bring 3 to 4 quality in.

20 Mar 2017 08:46:44
Define the crap in the club Wolves till I die. I believe we do have a lot of deadwood in the club, but I wanted to know who you thought is deadwood.

21 Mar 2017 08:06:16
Evans was dead wood till last week now he is number one choice as cm so it's hard to say

yes some players will leave in the summer as always I like Price but I think he is one we will sell and Bod I like too but he is now third choice up front these are not dead wood though and will have no trouble finding clubs interested.

21 Mar 2017 15:09:07
Price, Evans, Edwards, Bathh, Saville to name but a few are division one standard players at best.
Dicko, Bodvarsson, Ikeme, Hause, Doherty back up players at best.
The summer is make or break in my opinion who we sell will tell us what direction our club takes next.

21 Mar 2017 18:58:40
I can not believe Edwards is in that list of deadwood/ league one players.
He's our top scorer, scoring 10 goals this season How many other midfielders in this league, this year have scored more? Not many. Take the goals Edwards has scored away this season for us we'd be up **** creek without a paddle.

22 Mar 2017 05:29:25
Yes he's scored 10 but most of the time he runs round like a headless chicken time to move him and the others on.

22 Mar 2017 08:07:56
Edwards is the type of player I would have in my team he never stops harrassing the opposition - exactly the player you don't want to play against-you don't have time to settle on the ball with him around!

22 Mar 2017 14:26:17
I'm never sure about Edwards. A few seasons ago he was almost out of the club, not even making Deano's lineup. Then he had some good seasons. And yes, he's done a lot this season too. But would a more commanding, creative midfielder be better? Someone who could distribute balls to the front 4 (as we now appear to have) rather than to grab a goal from time to time? That's what he was mostly doing last match I suppose, but if we still had Oniangue at the Mol I suspect he would work the ball better.

On the other hand, he's as Wolves as we've got now. He's fit, rarely being injured or booked or even substituted. Perfect for this division. But if we get promoted.

22 Mar 2017 17:43:03
I think Edwards is the perfect sub for any division from league 2 to the premier league he's the kind of player you need when you're 1-1 with 20 minute's to go and you can throw him on and he'll get you a goal. However I don't think you notice him that much if he doesn't score but I must admit he's one of only a few players who have been up for the fight this season so fair play to him.

23 Mar 2017 15:22:55
Good comments 1877stlukes, could not of said it any better, Edwards is what you have said he is to the club, and gives is all week in and week out.
Next year needs to be a big change if Fosun are true to there word and want to get into the big league if we are safe, we still have big, big matches comeing up and need to get some points on board, Molineux will be Lamberts big test, he as to start getting results at the Molineux and playing attacking football, there will be no more excuses if we don't get results I am sorry to say, I think they will move Lambert on if we don't start performing.
