Reading on twitter that Villa also want Afobe. Is this just talk to give Wolves a kick up the backside and put pen to paper? Or would we call their bluff and risk having him play at that place down the M6?

Euroman

Bournemouth want a sale.
Villa can't do it.
They can only match our offer.
Where would you go?


2.) 29 Jan 2018 19:54:16
Wolves as he has previous experience playing there as well as they are nearer the premier league.


3.) 29 Jan 2018 20:17:34
This will go to the wire.


4.) 29 Jan 2018 21:05:20
Ya mean the previous experience he had with us when he had a VERY public spat with Kevin Thelwell, ya know that guy that is STILL our Sporting Director and also often plays a big role in recruitment?! Should be interesting then!


5.) 29 Jan 2018 22:36:16
It’s interesting. There was fault on both parts; false promises, immature attitudes and people’s careers been questioned (all of Jackett, Afobe and Thelwell) . But ultimately the fans and the player have lost out in this episode. Fans in the fact they lost a player that genuinely looked like he could develop into a fine player (both goal scorer and creative outlet) . But Afobe as well as the money can only satisfy certain players. Afobe did have a genuine passion for the game. Both shown in his scoring exploits and some games as a lone striker where he was everything going forward he came short, played some one in or ran at the opposition it was crazy to watch he went from a striking triumvirate to striking solo and I felt it was harsh on everyone (fans and player) because it had the feeling of something special. Maybe we can question sako more? As he was part of that 3 and showed no loyalty. Maybe we can blame Moxey, Morgan, Jackett or Afobe’s agent. It’s hard to pinpoint. UTW.


6.) 30 Jan 2018 09:13:11
Sorry Anewdawn, but I think that is harsh to question Sako's loyalty. He stuck with us when we went down to League 1, stayed with us until the end of his contract despite offers from clubs in higher leagues in those respective seasons.

He did not engineer his way out of the club during his contract, unlike Afobe, so to say he showed no loyalty is out of order.

For the record though, I wouldn't be unhappy to see Afobe back as he will fire us up having experience and success in this league and I think he will have a point to prove in the Prem given his experience at Bournemouth.


7.) 30 Jan 2018 09:35:45
we are now apparently after a permanent deal for Afobe rather than a loan.


8.) 30 Jan 2018 10:57:49
Sorry Statto I wasn’t questioning his loyalty as such. I was merely questioning what was going on behind the scenes. As if I remember rightly it took Sako a while to confirm what he was doing. Maybe the wolves matched his wages. doubtful but not out of the question. As I said at the end of the previous post ‘it’s hard to pinpoint’ as an outsider. Maybe it was a reason for Morgan selling up. Who knows? But it must be hard treating your employees well and then having that thrown in your face.

It is well noted that I would like Afobe back. Not because I think he is a superstar or world class. He can do a job for us over the next six months. His direct running, vision and goals will get us over the line. Not too fussed if it is a loan or signing. Either way we gain.


9.) 30 Jan 2018 11:01:31
Just a personal feeling that you should never go back, particularly if there is baggage. Once promoted we will have our pick of Europe with Mendes making the intro's. Sign Grabban now as additional support we don't need a big name. Then come the summer we will have more cash to play with and stay within FFP rules.


10.) 30 Jan 2018 11:24:48
Fair enough Anewdawn, you are right that no one knows what goes on behind the scenes. You did state "he was part of that 3 and showed no loyalty" which I thought was unfair and responded to accordingly.

Anyway, whoever comes in, whether it's Afobe or someone else, let's trust that Nuno knows what he is doing as he has done little wrong so far! The way that the club has been turned around in the matter of 6 months warrants that faith I think.


11.) 30 Jan 2018 13:36:33
Let's forget all this loyalty stuff. These are professional footballers, and the deal is whatever the contract says it is. Edwards was loyal, so was Stearman, so was Henry. Players like Price patiently waited for their chances for years.

Players need to go where they can to further their careers. Because clubs won't do that for them. We might be cheering on Jota, Neves and Boly today but we don't know if they'll be with us next season. Or even at the end of the transfer window.

When it comes to it, all we can want is what's best to further the club's standard of football. Players will always come and go, as do managers and owners. If the time is right for Afobe then that's fine by me. I was more annoyed when Edwards was sold but time has been a great healer and his replacement, Neves, has more than proven himself in that position.

So I don't care if Afobe or Sako or further back, Kightly or Jarvis or Fletcher or anyone else has been loyal. They did what they were paid to do and we loved them in their time.


12.) 30 Jan 2018 14:17:14
Respect Statto. I did mean loyalty to team mates, manager and club hierarchy that at the time did have them near the play offs. I didn’t mean against the club nor fans.

From Afobes reaction it would seem that the club didn’t do all that it could to persuade Sako to stay. Which would have been frustrating at 22 yrs old when you want to be achieving all your goals. Whilst also been immature with how he reacted to it.

And I do completely agree in Nuno we trust. Let’s get behind them and make some noise Saturday. UTW.


13.) 30 Jan 2018 14:29:03
I'm sure Sako was part of the team that took us down to L1. Loyalty, guilt or too expensive for another championship club at the time?


14.) 30 Jan 2018 16:44:46
Sako was by far our best player when we went down to L1. Those were the dark days of Henry (K), Johnson and OHara and who knows what nonsense was going on behind the scenes.

Sako took his chances and stayed with Wolves and Kenny rebuilt the team, with Golbourne, Henry (J), Jacobs, Ricketts etc and what a great season it was - bettered only by this one. OK, easier teams, but great to be winning again and then marching up the Championship afterwards.


15.) 30 Jan 2018 18:28:36
See for me its not about loyalty because that has LONG been an outdated commodity in football. Was like when Sterling threw his toys out the pram at Pool and all there fans were asking after his loyalty well they knicked him on yts from QPR so his 'loyalty' didn't bother them at that point did it?! that's the problem loyalty no longer exists because they are rarely actually form that area. Take Iorfa for example he was Southend originally (probs why his head was turned when london came calling in the form of WHU 2 seasons back) or Hause was from Wycombe, so why would they feel the need to be loyal to Wolves?
No for me its more a question of professionalism, that's all I expect! And Sako was a professional, always gave his all even when we spiralled down to League 1. There in lies my issue with Benik, he lacked the professionalism to go well I'll just play my way up the leagues and force them to sell as they won't be able to refuse the size of the bid next window! But instead he downed tools and sulked around for four months whilst still being one of the highest earners!
Still I meant it genuinely it would be VERY interesting to be at that meeting especially when you consider what was actually said Thelwell -"Benik was no longer trying to play for us. That was undermining everything we were trying to achieve" now that's pretty strong words in public. oh to be a fly on the wall when they meet! ;)


 

 

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?

Euroman

1.) 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.


2.) 23 Mar 2017 14:54:42
They've changed the dates. It said 2015 this morning.


3.) 23 Mar 2017 15:21:35
There are so many incredible German league players who we could sign. It could be amazing.


4.) 23 Mar 2017 16:04:40
Lewis Holtby would be a good signing for us.


5.) 23 Mar 2017 16:10:01
Yes as would be pappledolplelous who is on loan this season.

Looks like Cav is back. Let's hope he starts and adds some magic. Saiss too.

Lambert knows he can't lose tonight or he's gone. Tick Tock Tick Tock Tick Tock.

A draw will prolong the agony.


3.) 07 Mar 2017 18:00:08
The chinese will think long and hard about sacking paul lambert as the reasoning behind there choice had nothing todo with football all to do with chinese superstition paul lambert was born the year of the roster which all happens to be the season of 2017 year all good thing happen in that year supposedly. Paul lambert to stay I think unfortunately league 1anager at best sorry but honest opinion dean saunders was better hahaha we need a sutible manager which prem and champ experience to then push on I mean benitiz was real madrid manager few years ago now look at him. Paul ince as assistant ranieri as manager give him 5 years ince takes over.


4.) 07 Mar 2017 18:11:19
If we lose tonight we go down, if we win then we'll win the next few and finish mid table.


5.) 07 Mar 2017 19:25:18
Wow that team selection?

He has took ALL pace out the team.

I would love to know what Saville and Edwards do in training to make Lambert think they are unstoppable.

I'm praying I'm wrong. If we lose after this selection then Lambert will have tied his own noose.

COYW.


6.) 07 Mar 2017 19:42:51
2018 is the year of the Tiger, so presumably Fosun will be looking at anybody who was born in 1974? Answers please.


7.) 07 Mar 2017 19:46:54
Let Lambert shoot himself. Forget the rooster, we need a tiger.


8.) 07 Mar 2017 20:42:39
Rooster is like cock as in cock up what manager picks Saville and Weimann ahead of Costa?


9.) 08 Mar 2017 03:27:32
2018 is the year of the dog. If Fosun are consulting the oracle and hiring managers based on when they were born we may have Chris Hughton (1958) or Chris Coleman (1970) next year.


10.) 08 Mar 2017 07:13:49
. hopefully not Alan Irvine (1958) or David O'Leary (1958)


11.) 08 Mar 2017 13:45:19
The smart ones on here would have already worked out Gary Rowett was actually born in 1974 (year of the Tiger) . I'm not taking the piss, l genuinely think Wolvesfmscout has something and, luckily for us, Rowett's spiritual symbol and number chart meet all of Fosun's harsh requirements for 2018. If Lambert steps down, it shouldn't hit us too hard, lol. I have to admit, though, that it does make me worry about future applicants doing it that way.


12.) 08 Mar 2017 14:09:29
Sorry, yes you are right, next year is the dog year. I guess Gary will have to wait until 2022 or 2034 for the Wolves job? Very harsh.


13.) 09 Mar 2017 09:50:43
Nah! We got the 'Year of the Pig' not thought to be very smart! Albeit a couple of years earlier than expected!

⚽️👍😉.


 

 

12 Jan 2017 15:20:01
Lambert said of Oniangue: "He needs to get games. He's a lovely lad, a really top bloke, but I can only pick two central midfielders and there's more here than I can count. "

Is this the biggest hint yet that two or more CMs are on their way out? A week agao I would have guessed Saville and Evans but not so sure now. But he won't sell Edwards, Price or Saiss presumably. Coady looks like he offers some consistency too, wherever he is played. Tough one.

Reports that the Luisao deal is being held up by one party, likely to be Wolves. He would be on 40k/ wk, which is OK for a player of his standard but maybe a bit much for Wolves.

Euroman

Lol reports sorry no body nos about in house moneys.


2.) 23 Aug 2016 23:21:30
I honestly don't believe fosun would be hesitant at paying him 40k so I doubt that's it. But does any1 think this might turn into a talisca saga n end in the same way?


3.) 24 Aug 2016 03:58:05
I hear wolves have offered him £35k but he wants £60k .


4.) 24 Aug 2016 09:33:38
Deal is now considered to be off (according to reports oversees)


5.) 24 Aug 2016 10:24:42
I'm in Portugal at the moment and the Benfica fans saying he's leaving for Wolverhampton? But they also say they thought talisca was a done deal to us to. so who knows. by the way it's bleedin hot here . but all inclusive bar helps 😎.

Going to stick my neck out with my usual piece of pointless analysis based on what I've seen so far.

Take the other 19 teams.

We're unbeaten at home, drawing with two top-10 teams. Let's say on average we get 10 points from top 10 teams, 27 from the bottom 9. Obviously the mix won't be that, but it's an idea of where we're at.

Away we'll lose against the top 10, draw against 4 and win against 5 of the bottom 9. That's 19 points away.

That's a total of 56 points. Mid table. If we do better than that, we're really outperforming. If we do much worse then that's disappointing, not to mention the danger of a relegation scrap. Beating the bottom team away from home gives us some reassurance, but if we can win 14 times (9 home 5 away, say) - more than we have the last few seasons in the Premier - we'll be fine and by last season's standards, that's 8th place.

Euroman

1.) 03 Sep 2018 19:08:50
Love your pointless analysis Euro. I think we all run those scenarios through our minds. I am still confident of upper lower half finish; something to give experience to the squad, and to build on.
There will be surprise results though, I look forward to those in our favour. I am very impressed with our intent and desire to win.


2.) 03 Sep 2018 23:59:22
If we get 56pts you'd all better get your passports out because we'll be going on a European tour. Burnley only got 54pts last season and finished 7th 56pts would be unbelievable I hope your right. UTW.


3.) 04 Sep 2018 11:28:36
Great win at WH, however, as I’ve mentioned before, we have to be much more composed and clinical in front of goal, much more! It will cost us in the long term if we can’t address this aspect of our game. We are creating chances but, they need converting or at least a lot more than we are doing currently! Being positive not negative. I’m sure Nuno knows this anyway. 😉👍⚽️ Come on the Wolves.


4.) 04 Sep 2018 15:30:30
Thanks Wimborne. Yes 1877 I think I got the position wrong. 7th with 54 is doable!

Wolvescoast - Maybe I'm being optimistic. But we did hold Man City and Everton at fortress Mol. Of course there will be surprises. We might win at Anfield and lose at home to Cardiff. Hopefully not too many nasty surprises though.

Yes, while our defence has been for the most part awesome, and our midfield too, our usual suspects - well, Neves, Jota and Costa - need to get on the scoresheet. Jiminez looks like the real deal and Leo isn't going to go away quietly either. Just think how far we'll go if that odd extra goal squeezes in.

Yes, Nuno knows what he's doing.


5.) 06 Sep 2018 16:06:05
Anything over 50 going to be good last season lots of teams in the 40s.


 

 

27 May 2018 11:03:27
I have to concede that after last night's final, Neves' goal against Derby was the second best I'd seen this season.

And it sounds like the Welsh man is for sale. We can only dream.

Sorry Euroman still think our Rubens was better, Bales was class but he had no time to think what to do he executed wondetfully though.
Where Ruben had a couple of seconds b4 the ball got to him to think about what to do, the rest is history.
Best goal I've seen down the Mol. in 55 years.
Ask yourself, which goal would you rewind over and over again.

I VOTE RUBEN 😀👍.

GodBless WolfPack.


4.) 27 May 2018 12:30:18
Like you dingledave, I'm biased. Yes, Neves' goal was no reflex action, it was execution to perfection. I've lost count how many times I've watched it.


 

 

15 Apr 2018 16:01:51
Silly pedantic point on coming 1st. Although Cardiff need 4 wins and us not lose our last 3 for them to draw level, if that happens then the goal difference likely won't save us as with all those wins and losses, that gap will close.

But really, it's never going to come to that. Cardiff probably won't get 12 points and we'll not lose all our last 3.

02 Apr 2018 10:47:32
Reading that we're linked with Celtic goalkeeper Scott Bain.

How many goalies do we need? We already have at least 6 on our books including Ikeme. Is Ruddy going? Will Norris step up or be number 2 (or 3) to a new goalie? At least one of Flatt and Burgoyne will leave, surely.

Euroman

1.) 02 Apr 2018 20:23:27
Not the number of goalies we need, but quality:Ruddy ain't the answer, some very poor displays from him. Wondering who'll get the nod for striker tomorrow night, Afobe didn't even get his boots dirty other night, ran around like a headless chicken.


2.) 03 Apr 2018 08:49:03
Quite right Belfastwolf, the amount of effort Adobe put in against Middlesbrough be fair to say we actually beat them with 8,
2 sendings off and one no show!


 

 

17 Feb 2018 19:48:44
Nuno said he needs to look at how to play against 10 players and their deep defending. He wanted a win. Given the number of times this has happened to us this season, he's probably right.

Euroman

1.) 17 Feb 2018 20:27:21
Well I would love to see BA back to his old ways with us, but, having seen him play down here at the Vitality many times over the last 2 years And have to say he’s lost his Mojo as I have mentioned on various occasions over the last few months on this site! Unless there’s a dramatic change in his fortune, and ours as a result, I can only see him going back to EH and the Vitality in May! Hope I’m proved wrong, as it would mean he’s found It, not lost it! Hope we pick up 6 points next week. ⚽️😉👍.


2.) 17 Feb 2018 21:20:13
Nuno also mentioned the problem with set pieces and defensively for me that has in fact been our biggest weakness! Nuno seems to favour zonal marking for set pieces but either the players don't get it or the system just ain't effective enough because it has been our biggest (only) flaw most of this season! For a defence as tidy as ours that was another VERY soft goal to concede!
I trust Nuno to fix it but I do hope its sooner rather than later because if we go to the Prem with that kind of weakness then teams will simply play to get the set piece and then beast us during them (like the Stoke of old) . Sure Nuno will get us up to speed but think as a club we all need to take a step back and remember just how ruthless the Prem is with any kind of such weakness and then get it sorted asap! Still at least none of our players are out playing with taxis! COYW ;)


3.) 17 Feb 2018 21:49:11
Not probably, absolutely right! We dropped a Bock today! 😉⚽️👍.


4.) 18 Feb 2018 13:15:20
I would like Nuno to play Bonatini or Afobe with Cav and Jota as our front three. our bench would be better and we would not have to change the system, also Doherty needs to improve his final ball, he gets a lot of the ball and seems to waste it.

To turn that into a Nuno team one of those MFs - MGW I presume - will be expected to be a striker. Would be good to see him and Traore each side of Jiminez. If not Traore then one of Cav/ Costa/ Jota, whoever is looking best at Compton.

I agree with Jas M. Oskar has impressed in the past and may well be given a surprise call (or is he on loan somewhere? ) . Iorfa doesn't seem to be in Nuno's thoughts and I'd forgotten he was still around. Saiss or Moutinho are versatile enough to do the job too, as well as Traore. Costa filled in at RWB the end of a game once but I think we'd run out of subs at that point.

Hopefully we'll have Doherty.

Is that still the case? I think Nuno is just very conservative about the team. He will only change it if he thinks it's not working or he has to (injury etc) . Dendoncker will get his turn in due course. Certainly in the Carabao next week.

If we go 4 at the back, it probably means no Coady, Dendoncker being the obvious replacement. Then Saiss in midfield in a 433. The wing back positions will be up for grabs too, although Doc is capable of playing a traditional full back role.

I think Nuno will keep to his 343 but will give slightly different briefs to the players. As others have said, Coady (or Saiss) needs to help midfield more and the wings might need to play more through the middle.

This should really be target practice for us. But we all know it's never that simple. Rajiv will be looking to score against us no doubt. This should be the ideal match to get our points moving again.
