Really strange that Nuno has not made any comment at all on Benik Afobe loan.
Would have thought it here would have been some reaction on a so called marquee signing.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Feb 2018 23:57:17
he only talks on a friday before a game.

02 Feb 2018 09:34:24
He talks after a game as well .

02 Feb 2018 12:41:22
Been known to have a few words during a game as well Billy!

02 Feb 2018 14:01:09
He probably talks when he is at home . Wombourneron.

02 Feb 2018 15:20:10
Today I am a party pooper. Mr Afobe has not scored this season and has scored as many goals in 2 years as Grabban has scored in 4 months at struggling Sunderland. When Afobe signed last time he knew where the back of the net was, having scored a hatful on loan in Division 1. He brought confidence and swagger.

I rate him but at this time, 'to get us over the line', Grabban may have been the option. It will be tough for Afobe coming to our successful club, he will need to hit the ground running and may struggle for game time. Good luck to him but I am worried that he is not the short-term fix for us right now. In Nuno I trust.

02 Feb 2018 15:45:56
To be honest I don't think that will be the case mate. I think afobe suits òur style of play more than bournemouth. He's similar to bonatini but with a bit more pace and a better finisher. Bournemouth like there strikers to get in behind the defender. Afobe isn't that player. He likes to come deep and link up play he done it all the time when he played for us and you could tell he come from arsenal.

Josh king and Wilson are similar sorts of players and completely opposite to afobe. Put Andy Carroll in a man city side and watch him struggle, put him in a pulis side and watch him shine. You see it all the time with strikers they need the right service for them to succeed and score goals. If man city suddenly started to play long balls into the box, aguero would hit a goal drought.

I'm confident afobe will hit the ground running and I'd be shocked if he didn't get between 8-10 goals before the end of the season.

02 Feb 2018 17:42:28
Bang on mate.

02 Feb 2018 17:50:50
I hope you're right DTM. The Bournemouth press reckon he's needed a 2nd touch this season which to me is a confidence thing. A big sigh of relief from all of us when he comes off the bench tomorrow and put's one away.

02 Feb 2018 19:59:01
steve bull first touch was allfull but his second the back if the net.

{Ed033's Note - all full of what?

02 Feb 2018 20:48:15
Some of you are never grateful.

02 Feb 2018 21:14:58
Didn't Afobe score against Stoke in the league and Middlesbrough in the cup?

02 Feb 2018 22:42:28
Just listened to Nuno and he is so laid back sure he said nothing exciting about Afobe but he stressed the work ethic needed to get a place in the team and the reason for signing him he says Sheffield isn't about revenge it's about winning as against any team yeah so he is not singling out anyone he never does and won't do that with Afobe.

03 Feb 2018 08:10:53
Patience. I truly believe this will help all the players in an attacking sense. It takes the pressure from them (Jota, bonatini and Costa) with the addition of Afobe with swagger then it could be interesting. There are many games where I have thought Afobe could do something in games this season. Either hold the ball up, run at a defender or play a team mate in. Let’s hope he can and everyone can benefit from it!

03 Feb 2018 09:36:40
He will probably come on for the last 20 minutes, if Nuno thinks he's fit enough (I watched that interview too) . Although I wonder if Nuno will play him and Leo at the same time. We need Jota and Costa or Cav to work from the sides of the box, and the 343 structure is pretty set in stone. Exciting!

03 Feb 2018 14:29:43
I think afobe will thrive with the quality players he has around him, he has the extra pace and power we need, he could have been the difference in those 0-0 draws ageist Barnsley and Sunderland etc 👍.

01 Feb 2018 16:53:25
According to the express and star.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Feb 2018 16:53:04
Just to say there IS an option to buy Benik back permanently in the summer.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Feb 2018 00:00:56
Benik afobe signed on loan. £1 million loan fee and wages paid in full. Apparently bournemouth revived the deal at 10.30pm on the terms that wolves wanted. No option to buy either. Great business. Get behind him then send him back once the summer comes. Bigger fish to fry .

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Feb 2018 08:14:48
Completely agree, haven’t got into the debate myself, but he is here now so personal opinions aside let’s get behind him as I’m sure he will score 13+ goals. With Jota and Caverlio, Névés and Costa if he finds form!

01 Feb 2018 08:29:58
Sounds like Wolves played it cool and Bournemouth said ok when they realised Wolves weren't going to pay more

There is an option to buy out of darkness.

01 Feb 2018 09:27:12
13+ goals Wolves011? Fancy a wager? Maybe get a few as back up. Now it's done I'll just have to eat humble pie until we wave goodbye!

01 Feb 2018 09:57:45
Really good piece of business we stuck at it didn't give in got what we wanted adobe should thrive with the players around him.

01 Feb 2018 09:58:10
Maybe Eddie Howe had a few drinks too many after beating Chelsea? He wanted his pound of flesh from Wolves (a profit on £10mil) and only got a loan deal heavily in Wolves' favour. This is an intelligent and cheap gamble by Wolves as Afobe is proven in this division. Nuno might even improve him.

01 Feb 2018 11:19:19
Old Wulf let’s see shall we! It will be very interesting.

01 Feb 2018 12:17:44
I'm pleased with this piece of business as it's a short term fix. Afobe's attitude when he left stunk. But hey maybe he's grown up a bit and can do a job for us. If it works out great, if not he goes back. Either way Nuno won't put up with a load of nonsense.

01 Feb 2018 12:46:24
The option to buy is in our favour so we can buy him if we want or not bother. great business.

01 Feb 2018 16:52:12
I think Afobe is best of the bunch who we've been looking at over here it's a great signing till the end of the season just to c us over the line get behind him 100per cent Bournemouth beating Chelsea last night worked in our favour Eddie Howe must have been feeling generious.

31 Jan 2018 23:03:15
Its now 10.59pm, SkySports saying Afobe to Wolves to be confirmed but could go to the wire😀🤞🙏.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jan 2018 23:27:28
The Sun saying it's a done deal they running the story.

31 Jan 2018 23:28:54
What has The Realist to say?

31 Jan 2018 23:29:55
Afobe confirmed.

31 Jan 2018 23:31:24
Confirmed, Afobes on his way back! Have to put my hand up and admit I'm surprised but regardless of what I think of him personally he is now a wolf again! I will be backing the lad as much as the next player, he better flipping well score lots now! COYW ;)

31 Jan 2018 23:32:07
done deal confirmed, paying full wages plus large fee.

31 Jan 2018 23:44:54
Afobe done deal.

31 Jan 2018 23:46:13
Welcome back Benik.

31 Jan 2018 23:46:21
Afobe comes home on loan for the rest of the season.

31 Jan 2018 23:47:57
Confirmed on Sky - loan until end of season. Option but no obligation to buy.

31 Jan 2018 23:49:33
Happy days welcome back benik - it’s magic you know!
Just the push we needed to see us over the line 👍.

01 Feb 2018 02:33:35
Well Ben 10 is back in the pack as it says.
This now at least gives us striking options, a plan B and gives Leo support up front as well as the young kids.
Afobe will give us the extra firepower needed to get us well over the line, and I for one will support him 100%. he’s in the Wolves family now.
Good bit of business to take us to the Premier
BTW bye bye Boggies👋👋👋👋.

01 Feb 2018 02:42:07


01 Feb 2018 08:07:03
I'm pleased we got him back end of the day he is a goalscorer and that's what we need a t the moment it's win win for us if he puts it in scores goals he might get a contract for longer he has a bit of making up to do which he will a couple on Saturday if picked will be a start
Welcome back to the pack.

31 Jan 2018 21:41:09
We have signed Reimao Nogeuir from Fiorentina under 23 Portuguese midfielder.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jan 2018 21:15:40
No new striker coming in, I am told that Nuno is happy with what he has.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jan 2018 21:27:50
You are told LOL.

31 Jan 2018 21:33:21
He's said that from day 1. He doesn't come across as a last minute k8nd of guy. Can't see anything happening in the next hour and a bit.

31 Jan 2018 23:01:47
Afobe coming in on loan last minute according to Sky reporter in Bournmouth.

01 Feb 2018 11:06:02
lol keep the Faith. they been here 18 months guys come on. wake up and smell the coffee.

31 Jan 2018 19:38:27
If you go to Afobes instagram page he's put a message just sayin "Lord Knows"interestly though in Gold and Black. Hmmmmmmm😀😀😀🙏.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jan 2018 19:55:13
We should message Bendtner then.

31 Jan 2018 21:12:33
Its not in gold and black.

31 Jan 2018 21:21:08
Oh yes it was!

31 Jan 2018 21:29:06
I hope no striker and no Doherty cover won't bite us in the arse.

31 Jan 2018 22:24:06
That young Portuguese kid who’s Just signed for us looks well happy in the photo to have signed for us. Reminiscent of the Aaron Lennon signing for Everton photo. 😂😂😂😂.

31 Jan 2018 18:43:21
Zahore £20M apparently?

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jan 2018 18:53:35
Current market value 5 mill apparently?

31 Jan 2018 18:56:07
Where you here that 1877.?
I know this is Rumours but posts are pure B. S.

31 Jan 2018 22:26:24
Cardiff are chasing promotion and aren’t going to let one of their main goal threats leave.

31 Jan 2018 12:40:12
Wolves 5/6 now to get Afobe from 1/4. Doesn't look likely now drifting like that. Need to get a striker in case of injuries just to cement promotion.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jan 2018 13:53:35
no were don't. 20 plus games proves that.

31 Jan 2018 14:27:06
He's also on the Bournemouth coach on the way to their game this evening.

31 Jan 2018 15:03:39
He's not travelled, Bnmouth want £2m loan fee.
Apparently we don't want to pay fee.

GodBless all😀🙏.

31 Jan 2018 15:32:02
Could be good value at £2m.

31 Jan 2018 18:07:34
Sorry but I've heard this £2m loan fee nonsense before and its just plucked from the air! No one would have the first scooby if that's true, just more paper chat. I've yet to see ANYTHING concrete that proves we've even been in for him but with Grabban off to Villa seems very unlikely to me. Time will tell.

31 Jan 2018 18:20:17
Afobe deal is off. No new signings. Will work with existing squad minus Marshall. Tyler Roberts preferred Leeds where he will start games.

31 Jan 2018 19:05:41
Afobe not in Bournemouth squad tonight.

31 Jan 2018 19:41:52
Checkout Afobes instgram page looks promising😀.

31 Jan 2018 22:23:01
Afobe not in squad, as he is in talks with wolves.
