Interesting comment that Wednesfield Wolf has changed his identity to Coven. Rings a bell with me. Come on deny it's true both of you.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jul 2018 20:43:30
moved house so changed my name but won't change being real . i'm not a fan of spotting what's wrong only when we're doing bad like others . were doing well now but have only signed loan players from last season ok it might work but it would be nice for mind sake of our fans to sign an out and out goal scorer not a player who didn't score past November . egos on here will surely disagree.

17 Jul 2018 20:58:33
Good to hear you haven't changed Wednesfield. hope you like your new location, just cheer up. The future is good, the future is Old Gold.

17 Jul 2018 21:02:57
im very happy with what we got. damm there's two windows to come so if we need a player for two i'm shore we will find them. I remmber shi saying 3 year plan to get to prem job done and 10 years over all. give it a break my word.

17 Jul 2018 22:41:10
Coven- as I said the other day fella do you not think that this is a debate for after the window has closed or even after Jimenez has kicked a ball for us?! Also why have peeps (cause its not just Coven here) already decided that Jimenez is no good?! Yet again a player that we would have given our right arm to sign in previous years but for some reason seems to have already been written off?! Like I say not just aimed at you Coven but I think one or two on here need a reality check as to where our club is! For those with short memories we still have never managed over 40 points in one Prem season but still when you look back at the stats the lack of goals did not get us relegated what did that was the goals we let in! The key to staying in the Prem is rarely scoring goals more often than not its not letting soft goals in!
All that aside somehow I can't see Mbappe knocking down our door to play for us! Maybe one day but for now Jimenez is a good calibre of player for where we are at maybe he will work out or maybe he won't but he's about the level of the club right now! In fact when you see WHU signing Hugill last window there's a pretty strong argument that as things stand a full international like Jimenez is probs us punching above our weight right now!
So heres a question for those unhappy with the 'current' business (and I say current as last time I checked the window was still open), but who where you guys expecting us to sign? Not asking with an agenda just genuinely intrigued to know who you think we have 'missed out' on?

17 Jul 2018 23:07:26
Hope you're enjoying your new home etc coven, I can understand your concerns but these are exciting times we are in a much stronger situation both financially and mentally than the last time we were in the prem. Keep your chin up the good times are coming.

18 Jul 2018 11:01:40
Spot on Bullysboy. I have said before that some people need a reality check. I am loving what is going on at the club but we aren't an established Prem club so we are not going to attract superstars at the moment. If we perform as we all hope, then we will become more attractive to more established stars.

Just think about what we had when we last got promoted to the Prem -
the squad is infinitely better quality-wise as it is now, and that squad stayed up for 3 seasons.

Before anyone accuses me of lacking ambition, that's not the case, just showing a bit of realism! I dream like the rest of the Wolf Pack.

18 Jul 2018 13:30:17
StattoWolf ll your post above is genuine real and not an inkling of lack of ambition. imo you're one of the most genuine poster on here.
I worry now every poster on here thinks i'm a slater to others. nothing is further from the truth.

17 Jul 2018 17:18:29
Danny Wellbeck to be sold for £8m. Does he speak Portuguese?

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jul 2018 21:01:42
A bargain at £ 8m.

17 Jul 2018 22:43:46
Hell of a bargain at that price! To be honest I would LOVE us to sign him! He's one of those players that might look average in a top four team but would look like a class act outside the top four. Seen him live a few times and my word the lad doesn't half work! Sadly I think his sights will be set higher, reckon Everton or maybe Southampton.

17 Jul 2018 13:37:12
Nice to read that Enis has been called up to the England u19 squad, that boy has real potential I think and will become a key player for us in time.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jul 2018 17:44:41
Not convinced mate and now in prem can’t realy let him have a dozen games to show us what he may be capable of, loan him it to a Sheffield team for experience for a season.

17 Jul 2018 22:46:20
The poor lad had a horrible time with the leg break last year, was being tracked by the top four right up until then! Agree with hoof though, a good loan would do him the world of good then who knows. Coaches all round still rate him (including the England guys) so would definitely be keeping my eye out if he does head out on loan. COYW ;)

17 Jul 2018 23:05:54
Agree fully with the loan idea would be superb for him.

17 Jul 2018 11:11:31
Wanted to make clear my ill feelings last week on negative post.
For a fellow wolf to post wolves fc have no ambition due to lack of signings and the constant disrespect of nuno regarding signing bonatini full time really got under my skin to me this was no opinion it was as low and stupid as I have ever read.
The constant expert fans talking dribble will only cause ill feeling in the camp.
I for one is excited and buzzing to be a wolves fan.
Last pre season we signed neves in a championship record signing and still there were wolves fans not happy and low and behold we had a season that surpassed all expectations.
I implore wolves fans to trust in the manager the players the boatd the owners.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Jul 2018 12:01:27
Natives are restless Phillip, still best part of 4 weeks till kickoff and quiet on the transfer front. I'm sure we will have at least 3 new players in before the window closes, down the spine of the team👍 Roll on Everton game 👍.

17 Jul 2018 12:46:22
Whether this club get the sighnings they want or not, they could never be accused of a lack of ambition. Some player may decide on a more well known club, not going to say bigger, but wolves still keep chasing those names.

17 Jul 2018 13:23:09
I’m no expert but didn’t we sign premier league class players to get us out of the championship? Added a world class ‘keeper and £30m rated international forward to the squad, yet still some feel the need to moan (can’t be old enough to remember “the Bhatti’s”) If Nuno wants anyone else he will get them, if not just enjoy what we’ve been waiting an eternity for. if you’re lucky enough to get a seat.

17 Jul 2018 13:24:25
Talking "dribble" . Whilst I agree that we have shown masses of ambition, your comment reeks of those subjective fans that simply shout down anyone trying to be objective. Especially the ones that find English hard. It's drivel, not "dribble. " It's called being objective, not subjective. It's called loving your club so much and having such belief that you think one or two high class players will see us being in the top half and challenging Everton and their ilk.

But thank you, as soon as I saw "dribble" I realised I should stop reading. Do you also say "peddle stool"?

17 Jul 2018 14:18:24
Well Phillip789 I get where you are coming from and agree with what you are saying. I posted something very similar last week. I have never been so excited for a season to start. The club and fans are close again and we have, in my opinion, a world class manager and a couple of world class players. The squad we finished last season with is good enough to hold its own in the prem and we have added a couple of quality signings. I have complete faith in Nuno, his team and the owners. Remember quality over quantity. Sit back and enjoy the ride. #TogetherWeAreStronger.
Nb: flawedprefection. Phillip was voicing an opinion which everybody is entitled to both negative and positive. I think you will find he was trying to put the point across that he is trying to be positive and doesn't understand the reason for a few fans negativity. I agree tbf. I can't remember us having it this good. Mocking someone for their use of grammar or spelling in such a way, just to belittle them and make yourself or your opinion superior is a bit of a low blow and sad way to get your point across. We all want what's best for our beloved club regardless of background. We are ALL United as a wolf pack. TogetherWeAreStronger 🐺.

17 Jul 2018 18:43:34
Well said Oxley Moor Ron. I cannot understand negative posts. Last season we was all saying our team would finish top half of prem now we have 2 additions some are saying we will be relegated. It’s the best time to be a wolves fan in my life time so enjoy the ride and get behind the team fosun and nuno.

17 Jul 2018 23:03:46
FlawedPer- and you posts reeks of a guy whos made a second profile just to have a pop at people and stir things up, only active from today by the looks of it?! Also please don't come on here with the 'its loving your club' nonsense because we all love the club! Most on here have been posting for years and attending for even longer so let's not go down that road else we might as well be in play ground! Not quite sure how constantly moaning about what the club hasn't done equates to loving the club any more than those people that are genuinely happy with the very REAL progress the club is making?! All I will say is good luck to you misses!

17 Jul 2018 17:02:03
90 per cent of us are waiting excitedly for the new season.

But I've seen it before, the other 10 per cent who push their own expectations so high that any blip and they’re all over the player or the manager and they get so uptight they start trying to spread their negativity.

I guess your glass is half full or half empty. Mine is definitely half full . remember some of the bad old days and compare it to this new adventure .

Loving it. Picture makes it feel real now. Class signing and shows the direction the club is going in, the ambition and quality of player we are looking at. I'm like a big kid atm, so excited. Thankyou Nuno. Thankyou Fosun. #TogetherWeAreStronger 🐺.

16 Jul 2018 17:19:32
Must admit this transfer is the opposite to what I thought it would be . who ever come in now won't have a full pre season . there's a lot of faffing about surely we will sign a cm and a top striker to save the embarrassment of bonatini as our top choice for our striker with all that money in bank it's becoming very boring. I would put a bid in for the two dembele spurs and Celtic hope the truth isn't to negative jas m.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jul 2018 17:37:10
Tbh I wish you'd stop whining you're getting boring. Shame there isn't a ignore option on here so I don't have to keep seeing your negative posts constantly.

16 Jul 2018 18:01:55
I was thinking the exact same thing rated.
Coven what did you think was going to happen? Sign 10 new players for the first team because only neves was good enough?! It’s not working like that nunos building a team, a team that last year was good enough to easily survive the prem so only a couple of additions were needed. And we’ve signed one of the best keepers in the world.
As for targets it’s all been paper talk. What f fosun has a priority of say 5 players, we signed 2 of them and missed out on 3. That’s probably because they don’t want to live in Wolverhampton or fosun not prepared to pay stupid fees and wages. Even Man City prem champions missed out on Jorginho because he wanted to move to London.
And have you forgot about Jimenez who could be our main striker?
The embarrassment is you.

16 Jul 2018 19:07:39
I very much doubt we will sign another Striker, Wolves don't have 3 man depth in the senior team in any other position.

Wolves need an additional RWB, LWB, CM and CB, those signings will be the priority ahead of blowing 20M+ on another Striker, if there is something you should be concerned about it is that if Matt Doherty or Neves gets injured we have no viable alternative!

Jimenez will be first choice, Bonatini second in the ST position.

16 Jul 2018 19:36:01
Why wouldn't incoming players have a full pre season. Surely they're training with their current club.

16 Jul 2018 19:52:13
Tbf both Rated RKO and Manc Wolf you both need to get off Coven Wolf's back. End of the day he's a fellow wolf. Just because he has a difference of oppinion doesn't give you the right to make your comments personal. if you don't like reading people's oppinion I would suggest unsubscribing to this site. Because I for one would rather read people's difference of oppinion that your pointless personal comments. He also has a valid point in than Bonantini stopped performing after Christmas. Subsequently as a result we had to get Afobe in Jan because clearly Nuno didn't trust him. Jiminez what has he achieved in his professional career for you to feel so confident that he's going to do the job? There's no right or wrong answer but do us all a favour. If you are having a bad day. Take it else where rather than bringing it to a Wolves Forum.

16 Jul 2018 20:28:57
For those of you interested in football statistics, I pulled together the below list which sets out the 'performance' of the lead striker for each Premier League team who stayed up last season, in this list performance = goals or assists/ minutes played, the list goes in order of position last season and starts with team, followed by striker, followed by how many minutes between a goal or assist on average last season.

Man City - Aguero - 73
Man Utd - Lukaku - 125
Spurs - Kane - 93
Liverpool - Salah - 68
Chelsea - Giroud - 121
Arsenal - Aubameyang - 76
Burnley - Wood - 149
Everton - Tosun - 198
Leicester - Vardy - 155
Newcastle - Gayle - 218
Palace - Zaha - 182
Bourneouth - Wilson - 199
West Ham - Arnautovic - 137
Watford - Gray - 187
Brighton - Murray - 182
Huddersfield - Mounie - 206
Southampton - Long - 394

For Reference:

Wolves - Bonatini - 145
Benfica - Jimenez - 97

Obviously you can't read too much into the stats but I think it is interesting, Jimenez didn't get a huge amount of game time but his goal/ assist rate in the time he was on pitch is 5th highest on the list i've compiled behind Salah, Aguero, Aubameyang and Kane

Bonatini would sit 9th.

16 Jul 2018 20:38:27
There is a difference between having an opinion and trolling, I suspect Coven of the latter I also think he is Wednesfield Wolf.
Also disagreeing with someone doesn't mean anyone is having a bad day it's called having a difference of opinion, Covens posts are constantly negative.
Maybe you should take your own advice One_life_one_wolf telling people to get of a forum just because you disagree with what they say, who made you site owner?
You should re-read your post too, you'll see it.

16 Jul 2018 20:40:12
WolvoNeil thanks for that mate very interesting indeed.

16 Jul 2018 20:42:11
Interesting stats Neil.

16 Jul 2018 22:32:39
Quality post WolvoNeil. Much appreciated, thanks.

17 Jul 2018 09:11:20
Have you swallowed a stats book mate 🤣🤣🤣🤣.

17 Jul 2018 10:36:28
Well said rated.

17 Jul 2018 18:49:07
Thank God there was nothing in the Shane Long rumour then, although I seem to remember one or two on here wanted him. I'd name em and shame em if I could remember who they are!

16 Jul 2018 08:39:11
Has anyone seen the picture on tim nash's twitter feed of the kenny hibbit book signing, trying recognize all the faces, spotted the usual ones. any thoughts.

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jul 2018 18:42:42
At this current moment in time I agree with you coven this window so far has been underwhelming and like you would have prefered players in earlier but it has been a World Cup Year. People have short memories. Thelwell back in May said,

“We want to be a strong Premier League contender which is actively playing in the top half of the league. The hard work has already started, it’s going to be a long summer but one we’re looking forward to.

“What we’re gearing up for is to try and create a squad that matches the ambitions of our coaching team, players and Fosun. Their vision is to be a top Premier League team so we have to produce and we’re relishing that challenge. ”

I don't think the additions of Rui and Raul is enough to meet Thelwell's aspirations of a top half finish but there are still just over 3 weeks to go till the window closes.

I'm sure more signings are on the way, in Nuno we trust.

17 Jul 2018 09:28:13
i thought it would be obvious to any football fan that most transfer business would be done after the world cup unless you were shopping in the lower leagues like our midlands rivals. keep calm in nuno we trust.

17 Jul 2018 10:12:37
We are a new team in the Prem trying to buy big name players. Its going to take time to convince these players to come to Wolves that's if they come!

Where are these Rashford rumours coming from. Don't get me wrong this would be an unbelievable loan signing. However can't see Mourinho loaning him out as they have no back up to Lukaku apart from martial.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jul 2018 16:26:53
Also, Rashford was used in more games than any other United player.

15 Jul 2018 19:46:48
Martial might be leaving but I expect Man U to sign another forward I heard they were looking at Perisic but they will want a proper CF.
