Wolves had scouts at last nights game benfica vs Ajax I'd guess they were there to watch players of benfica. salvio? Dias? Grimaldo? Pizzi although the didn't come on till 75th minute?




28 Oct 2018 23:49:01
I've got admit I think wolves may look for another winger, apart from Cav who is the only one of the lads here last season looks decent Costa and jota don't look great although from I've read jota apparently looked better yesterday and Ovbs traore only signed in summer and is going to take time and needs more starts but personally think we may look to for another winger in January.


1.) 29 Oct 2018 16:10:36
It's strikers we need Matt.

2.) 29 Oct 2018 17:11:26
Yes Paul we need a striker disagreeing but how many chances has Jimenez been created for him Paul? Personally I think ST, Winger, CM and full back January.

3.) 29 Oct 2018 18:00:53
Problem is regular Prem scorers are few. Last season we scored from all over the park, and everyone is finding it hard to repeat that. Doherty looked most likely on Saturday. I am sure if we had a striker who scored a few, it would create pressure on defences and allow others a little more space and time to contribute again. I cannot believe Nuno is unaware of what is needed and will find the solution. We have come a long way quickly and are still very much work in progress. just think 2 years ago.

4.) 29 Oct 2018 18:57:06
It’s no good dominating games and not getting the points because we are missing the pieces of the jigsaw at the sharp end? i'm Not do anything other than stating the obvious! I guess it’s just frustrating chaps. a tad annoying as well. Great build up and firing blanks. Arrgggg!


5.) 29 Oct 2018 19:29:55
Maybe the style Jonny is playing is different from Douglas and that is what is causing Jota's issues.
How you run up the field and whether you cut into the middle or stay on the touch line affect how the other player plays and where the space is.
Nuno should try to get Jonny to replicate what Douglas was doing last year in that respect to see if it helps Diogo generate more opportunities.

6.) 29 Oct 2018 23:10:15
thay have played 10 damm.

Batth playing his way into England call-up at Boro.

8.) 14 Nov 2018 18:13:58
Matt have you had a bang on the head Costa he ain't done to bad mate I think he's doing a good job.



13 Aug 2018 01:11:22
I hope this isn't true but apparently nuno doesn't trust vinagre and he won't start many games but I thought he made a bit of a difference when came he gave us natural balance and we had two wing backs doing the same rather than one further back than the other Jonny is great defensively but I think to get the best out of him going forward it would have to be on the right.


1.) 13 Aug 2018 07:59:59
1. According to who?
2. Why would he sell Douglas and buy a player he doesn’t trust?

2.) 13 Aug 2018 11:12:34
I thought Vinagre made a massive difference for the short time he was on, better shape to team and much better option going forwards. He would start against Leicester for me.

3.) 13 Aug 2018 13:02:25
I agree vinegra made a big difference when he came i'm a bit worried about our defence if boly gets injured who else is there to keep things together we will b given the run around nearly all our defenders played in the championship we haven’t made hardly any signings in that area Jimenez I thought was brilliant and deserved his goal could have another.

4.) 13 Aug 2018 18:44:23
Uhh, Dendoncker? . you plonker.

5.) 13 Aug 2018 19:49:37
Hause will come good if needed. His big chance.

6.) 13 Aug 2018 21:39:16
Dont believe this at all its like the douglas left post because he was late to training and him and nuno had words even though nobody had real proof of it being real #fakenews.

7.) 14 Aug 2018 13:06:08
Wolvesseve, you just don't get "real proof" in these matters. The fact that Douglas left cheaply gives you all the proof you need. No other PL team came in for him, and there was no championship bidding war. Maybe his supposed behaviours put them off?

8.) 14 Aug 2018 15:11:17
Douglas left because his defending was deemed not good enough for the prem - only Leeds made w offer that wolves felt was acceptable.



13 Jul 2018 22:16:27
I hope I'm wrong but have a feeling that this fifa thing might be effecting transfers yes wolves are confident they've done nothing wrong BUT if they start spending they might then argue we'll you can pay what the want I just have one of these bad feelings about it.


1.) 13 Jul 2018 23:30:16
I don't think it bothers the club. They say they ain't done anything wrong as Patricio was a free agent when he signed. The 2 clubs had agreed to a few but Sporting backed out. FIFA will probably say that we have to pay the fee originally agreed. The release fee does not need to be met as Sporting under the old directorship allowed the contract to be terminated. The fact that a new regime has taken over does not allow the club to reinstigate a terminated contract. Also Sporting cannot ask for Patricio to pay any future wages back. It's like me having 20 years left to work in my current job and if I resign, they ask me to pay them back the next 20 years wages they would have paid me. Bottom line is that Sporting are desperate as Patricio is one of 7 players who will walk away for nothing thanks to the old regime treating them like sh*t.

2.) 14 Jul 2018 00:00:22
Matt- I REALLY wouldn't lose any sleep over it fella cause it will all have been planned for by Fosun. You don't build up the empire they have without foreseeing the odd legal dispute, this ain't there first rodeo and they would have had legal teams looking over it before we even agreed the deal! So I'm sure it won't be affecting current transfer policy.
Besides historically when it comes to legal disputes more often than not the side with the biggest pockets does ok simply because of the legal force they can throw at it and I don't see why that wouldn't be the case here! We will of course HAVE to pay a fee as FIFA can't have this as a precedent case for peeps just walking from there contracts but I think what will go in our favour will be the £16m 'agreed' for him just weeks before. Reckon it will be max a £25m payout but even then it will be contingent on apps. If you look at the way these tribunals usually work its usually like £16m up front then say £500k after 10 apps, 20 apps etc or after Champs league apps (dream a dream)! Either way all pocket change to Fosun so like I say I feel pretty confident that they know what they are doing! Only concern for me is that it does shine an unwanted light on Mendes influence and they may try and crack down on that but even then they could only make that a new policy going forward because as we've already seen once as things stand today we've done nought wrong! COYW ;)

3.) 14 Jul 2018 00:24:03
one would hope that a multi national corporation would have the nouse to spot a legal pitfall and subsequent problems. everything reported (i use that term very loosely) is extremely amateurish including the complaints to fifa (that bastion of truth lol) . fear not, it requires corruption to thrive in this sordid world.

4.) 14 Jul 2018 01:26:49
I hope your all right here I really do, but I’m hoping that transfer activity will pick up and that we’re being slow as the quality we are targeting and due to individual positions but thanks guys being only 20 makes it hard not to worry I’m sure you’ll understand that haha.

5.) 14 Jul 2018 12:05:46
Fosun stated last time. The transfers were looked into complaints from villa and Leeds and co they now all the rules in the book they have nothing wrong wol will haft to pay the transfer fee agreed in the first place which was 18mill sporting r blaming us but wol had nothing to do with it.

6.) 14 Jul 2018 12:55:48
I think we currently have several deals on the go some waiting on us and some where we are waiting on others. Some of our negotiations are just back-up in case the original deal falls through. Maybe also having a last look at the existing squad like Hause, Cameron John, Goncalves and Giles to see if any of them could be anywhere near joining the squad. I really don't think they are over worrying about the Sporting complaint. BUT I do think it probably knocks on the head us doing much business with Sporting for a while.



04 Jul 2018 13:48:01
Hello guys just been reading that a deal with sporting has been agreed between to the clubs as wolves wanted to pay for him to stop wars between the clubs in the future it looks like the original 18m deal has been re-activated, With 11m going to sporting at 7m to Mendes, I wonder if this shows wolves are interested in one or two more of there players 🤔.


1.) 04 Jul 2018 19:03:51
Bring on Carvalho!

2.) 05 Jul 2018 09:20:55
Well according to Lawrie D, we’ve probably done our transfer business! Maybe another one to come and that’s it?! ⚽️😉👍.

3.) 05 Jul 2018 10:02:07
At least two, a centre mid and striker.

4.) 05 Jul 2018 10:15:49
And you believe that Coast.?

5.) 05 Jul 2018 11:46:49
Earlier he said we would be surprised with how much they were going to spend. Now he is saying they are almost finished?
I think he is just sending a message, and the signing of Bonatini reiterates that message, that Wolves are not desperate to sign anyone and that they are only looking for value for the money, like Neves last year.

6.) 05 Jul 2018 14:56:45
'Value for money' is definitely one of Fosun's requirements, and it is definitely the way to go.
Look at the deal we have agreed with Neves for the next five years.
Gives him stability, a good wage and first team football for the duration.
Then you have the "I'm brilliant brigade" who want huge wages, an agent with huge requirements, and they are just above average at best.
Better to bide our time, pick some good quality with the ability to get better, rather than buy those that think they are brilliant now.
Our business last year (and leading into this) has been first class. Loan deals for half decent players that have potential, with the ability to buy if it works out.
I have a feeling that is how we will go from here in - and why not Silva (o others) on such a deal?
We pay Milan a 'loan fee' and pick up his wages for the duration, then, if he does the business for us, we can buy him for the purchase price. that helps Milan and their FFP issues. If he tanks for us - in the best league in the World - then he is still in the shop window for 6-12 months for Milan to sell afterwards.

7.) 05 Jul 2018 15:44:21
Re Andre Silva, it is good for him too (a loan) because if he doesn't like Wolves then he can leave. He isn't committing to a long term deal.
Might be the best approach for both sides.

We need a change in formation and quick, personally if it was me I'd change to a 5311
Or a 433 so either of those two teams

Patricio doc Saiss Coady Boly Giles/ vinagre
Neves Dendoncker moutinho/ MGW Jota Jimenez

Patricio Doc Coady Boly Vinagre
Neves Dendoncker moutinho/ MGW jota Jimenez Cav

Either of these two would be good I think the top one tho could work better having 3 in the middle and some who will roam round behind the striker.


1.) 01 Dec 2018 08:45:40
The problems not the system it’s the players in it there’s too many either under performing or not good eneough neves looks a shadow of the player we know he is Jimenez has been poor the last 2 games Moutinho not influencing games like he did earlier Jota cav Costa traore not creating or scoring where has the free flowing football gone what’s happened to Dendoncker at the moment there are more questions than answers though the fixture list up till Jan looks daunting there’s not really a team that will set out to stop us which means we can play our game I do think investment needed in January and I’m sure the club has identified targets most of us knew this season would be tough and accepted survival hopefully mid table was success the fools who thought we would gatecrash the top 4 are probably the same fools calling for nunos head.

2.) 01 Dec 2018 10:34:48
Personally don’t think it’s the formation. Not sure why but we’re not playing how we were last season. There’s no through balls and defence cutting passes putting players one on one with the keeper.
Just can’t imagine us scoring
The players are under performing massively or trying too hard in my opinion.

3.) 01 Dec 2018 22:03:15
The issue is the formation we are getting over run in the middle and against Chelsea it will happen again unless we play an extra man in there.



26 Nov 2018 21:30:26
My team for Friday I feel Dendoncker and traore both need to start I know traore wasn't great yesterday but he still looked more of a threat than costa Cav or Jimenez although I'd keep Cav in there tbh and Bennett just needs dropping I'd also stick Saiss back alongside neves as they actually suit each other


Dendoncker Coady Boly

Doc neves Saiss vinagre

Traore Jimenez Cav.


1.) 27 Nov 2018 12:01:04
Agree with you Matt, bar one.
Sorry, but Cav's down the road for me. Never again.
And there's a few more in there who are living on the past.

2.) 27 Nov 2018 17:36:11
Boly was hardly outstanding against the giant 5’ 7” kid who most of us thought was a mascot they’d left on the pitch.

3.) 27 Nov 2018 19:56:46
Cav's always the scapegoat isn't he? Yes he was crap on Sunday, but they all were. And Neves was the worst of the lot. But let's lay into the only one who has shown some composure in front of goal this season, in limited playing time. Ridiculous!



06 Nov 2018 04:22:42
Looking ahead on Sunday I think we'll lose but not be disgraced my team well I think I'd do this not sure what everyone else thinks would take costa out the firing line looked like the life had been sucked out of him Bennett there needs to be a change there and give vinagre a run nothing against Jonny but think give vinagre a run for more widith


Dendoncker Coady Boly

Doc neves Moutinho Vinagre

Traore Cav



1.) 06 Nov 2018 07:50:54
I'd play Patricio, Doc, Bennett, Coady, Boly, Cav, Neves, Gibbs White, Costa, Jota and Raul.

Gibbs White to replace Moutinho to give him a rest, Costa and Cav out wide and Jota playing the number 10 role.

2.) 06 Nov 2018 08:46:42
Agree with most of that Matt, fresh legs at the back👍I'd like to see MGW play as well, as I think we need the extra man in midfield against Arsenal, and they allow u to play so def won't get bullied. Then Cav to play the number 10 roll off Jimenez. So going Patricio Doc Dendonker Coady Boly Vinegre Moutinho Neves MGW Cav Jimenez.

3.) 06 Nov 2018 11:05:01
Is Dendoncker better than Bennett? Dendoncker is a defensive midfielder who can play in defence much like Romain Saiss. Surely it would be better to play him in his natural position maybe in place of Moutinho who looks a bit jaded.

4.) 06 Nov 2018 12:52:30
Bennett looked knackered Saturday and he will get exposed even more against Arsenal.

5.) 06 Nov 2018 17:26:51
Done and MGW for me, Traore in the CF anyone?



25 Oct 2018 21:09:13

Yes Derby Wolf, here you go:




15 Oct 2018 08:03:17
As we all know bids for players don't go in or talks just start on January 1st they start well before that, wonder who were in for as could be an exciting time if were still in with a chance of getting in Europe by the time then comes around either competition as well with some of the players we could go for as lot will be very attracted.


1.) 15 Oct 2018 16:34:00
If we are doing as well in December as now, look for upgrades to Jota and Costa, if they don't get up to speed (Costa seems to be almost there and Jota seems to be hot and cold) .
Also, someone as good as Jimenez for negotiating power when buying him in the summer.
Maybe someone to give Jonny a go because he may not stick around (I'd like to see him stay for a second year loan, by then, we can just find someone else) .
They will probably try to sign anyone who can improve the club at a fair price, that is just how they are going to go about it.

2.) 15 Oct 2018 18:03:03
Players will come and go but we have seen that the current owners have managed to get international standard players to come to Wolves so I am not worried if Jonny or anyone else moves we will get good replacements.

3.) 16 Oct 2018 08:25:34
Who can replace Neves if he decides to move on?
At 21/ 22yrs of age there's nobody I've seen who's anywhere close to him.

4.) 17 Oct 2018 19:06:23
We might have to if someone comes in with big money but I think too that we will find a good replacement that Nuno will make a great player remember nobody had much heard of Neves before we signed him

But yeah better we keep him lol.

5.) 17 Oct 2018 22:26:17
Have to be honest as time goes by I care less and less about the 'player' transfers. Simply because there's one person at the club for me who's ground zero for the potential of this club and that's Nuno! If we keep him the rest will fall into place if not then the wheels could still come off! Just look at Lopetegui, looked like the one that got away or the next big thing and already having potential replacements tied with his job! Think we have the REAL deal in Nuno and the longer we keep him the better chance we have of making Wolves the kind of club us fans have always wanted and the kinda of club Fosun new they were buying! In Nuno we trust! ;)

6.) 18 Oct 2018 03:36:07
100% Bullyboy.

7.) 18 Oct 2018 17:54:23
I don’t think Neves will leave for a couple of years yet. He is assured of a game every week - essential to his development.

8.) 18 Oct 2018 21:37:59
Anyone that is old enough or still has the marbles will understand what we are doing is EXACTLY what Fergie did with his ground breaking team.
There was a bunch of relative young talent with potential, where did they go, well we all know that. Where will we go, well .

9.) 18 Oct 2018 22:26:25
If Nuno achieves even half of what Ferguson achieved I will be well happy

I agree he is more important than any individual player.
