(single word yields best result)

Apparently clubs have expressed interest in Lonnergan, Mason, Dicko and Price. With Price actually 'in taks' with another club.

We are also looking to get a striker over the line by the end of the week and a second afterwards if we decide to let Dicko go.

Bids are in and offers received being considered, expect some announcements by the weekend.

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't get why "we" are even considering letting Dicko go!?!
He hasn't lost any pace from what I can see and will score goals given decent service.
He also does a lot of unselfish running to create space for others. without him Afobe (who everyone loves) wouldn't have scored half the goals he did.
In my opinion we're lucky to have him in the squad-3/ 4 of the championship would take him in a heartbeat.

08 Aug 2017 12:20:17
I agree a few goals and everyone would think Dicko was our best striker again though currently he is. And don't mention Afobe.

08 Aug 2017 12:32:02
From what I saw on sat we played really well but as soon as we took bonatini off up front and put dicko on the we lost control of the game he just not tall enoigh to play in that position if he plays you need a big man next to him.

08 Aug 2017 13:29:56
Be interesting to see who doesn't play tonight of the fringe players cause they will be the ones who will probably be loaned or shipped out cause of being cup tied I reckon.

08 Aug 2017 13:45:40
I agree Dicko should be kept but don't expect him to be the big CF. He linked up well with Afobe in the past and now I think he could form a cracking partnership with Bonatini and our wide men feeding them.

08 Aug 2017 13:55:49
Yes, it will be a brand new 11 starting tonight. Something like


On the bench: Ruddy, Boly, Miranda, Neves, Coady, Bonatini, Bright
(what a bench! )

although maybe Coady will start, to develop his captain's role. We won't want to risk our new stars against Yeovil.

An outside chance for more youngsters, of course, like Samuel Austin. And a remote chance for Oniangue and Evans to see what they can do despite being outside the first team squad.

08 Aug 2017 14:02:06
Doesn't EVANS now play for Wigan.

08 Aug 2017 14:57:23
I thought Price was supposed to resurrected. Why is he talking about leaving?

08 Aug 2017 14:59:00
Evans has long gone to wigan, as for oniangue he won't feature either.

08 Aug 2017 15:23:52
Think Vinagre will be in ahead of Deslandes.

08 Aug 2017 15:26:49
Tim spiers states that we not in for Jordan Rhodes so we not in for Gallagher nor Afobe or bamford it's got to b foreign striker a mendes man.

08 Aug 2017 15:27:53
Euroman have you forgotten Norris? Pretty sure he'll be getting game time ahead of burgoyne. Just like vinagre over deslandes.

08 Aug 2017 15:30:12
It's not a bad rumour ardeidae i'd add batth and possibly Doherty depending on finances (Yes it does have tonne sustainable Ladies and gentlemen)
Doherty didn't play nunos way whilst Douglas did it to perfection. I think that's why there are rumours going round of more defenders.

Nuno expects the wing backs to get forward and take chances as that adds players to our attack. I think they will pay the money for striker (probably heard the name on this rumour page already), a midfielder and possibly either a rwb or another attacking player.

08 Aug 2017 15:38:47
Got to keep Dicko - if a Prem club comes for him then I'd wish him all the best. He's worth 5-7 mil. At the end of the day it's hard to replace strikers.

08 Aug 2017 15:41:39
I think will Norris will b in goal mason might b in contention bonatini may get game time.

08 Aug 2017 16:32:01
Agree North bank 62. Dicko is worth millions.

08 Aug 2017 17:16:36
Ah, yes, forgotten about Evans to Wigan. Thanks guys.

Would make sense to play Vinagre and Norris. Forgot about both of them (sigh) . E&S think so too:

Wolves (3-4-3): Norris; Bennett, Batth, Deslandes; Doherty, Price, Edwards, Vinagre; Graham, Dicko, Ronan. Subs: Burgoyne, Deslandes, Coady, Saiss, Enobakhare, Zyro, Bonatini.

Deslandes doing a double act here. A big correlation with my suggestion too (8 players I think) . Why does neither of us think Mason will play?

TimmyTTT - Price had a good pre-season but Saiss had a better one. He's too far down the pecking order again especially with Neves also in the team but I'm sure if there's a lull in performance in the next few weeks he'll be back.

08 Aug 2017 17:33:14
Tim Spiers prediction of line up is spot on I reckon.
Likely line ups
Wolves (3-4-3): Norris; Bennett, Batth, Deslandes; Doherty, Price, Edwards, Vinagre; Graham, Dicko, Ronan. Subs: Burgoyne, Coady, Saiss, Enobakhare, Zyro, Bonatini.

I'd expect zyro and bonatini/ bright to come on from the bench hopefully a couple of goals up.

08 Aug 2017 18:01:12
North Bank: No way would a premier club come in for Dicko unless it's a Malian premier club. Much as I like him the plain and simple fact is that he still has lots to prove following his debilitating injury. For one thing, he's clearly lost his electric pace and that's most unlikely to return.

08 Aug 2017 18:04:04
Expect a tough game against Yeovil that 8-2 result will b really hurting them with zyro graham and dicko playing we should have more than enough for them.

08 Aug 2017 18:38:59
What's happened to Dicko is a bit like what happened with Ebanks Blake. Bad injury, long lay off, returns half a yard slower and lost that goalscorong instinct. Shame, but no can can deny it's not the same Dicko. Irrespective of who's playing around him. I'd sell him and use the funds on a new powerful striker - Gray or Aboubakar would be perfect.

08 Aug 2017 19:37:55
Yes 1877 I think he should b sold he's not the same player he had a lot of game time last season and missed bucket full of chances the old dicko would have put them away lost that yard of pace.

08 Aug 2017 20:42:27
Ebanks-Blake in the day what a forward, childhood hero along with Karl Henry.

08 Aug 2017 21:49:27
And yet who saves the day against Yeovil.

08 Aug 2017 22:11:36
Mason got to be off.

08 Aug 2017 22:52:49
If anything that result tonight shows that we are a working progress. A striker is in demand our first team strikers struggled tonight. TBF I expected a tight match with Yeovil embarrassed at the weekend and wolves playing a majority of last seasons squad. But we need to be clinical and we need strong points of attack and methods of breaking teams down. 8 shots against Yeovil isn't good enough for a wolves team in the cup. Set the marker Nuno!

08 Aug 2017 23:15:26
Don’t get why we would get rid of Dicko if honest. At this stage he is the ONLY striker we have with any actual Champ experience to speak of. If honest I can’t tell if he’s lost a yard of pace or if the rest of the teams just quicker which finally makes it look that way, besides which for me personally his best trait was actually his ability to be a constant nuisance to the oppo defence. And that’s a mental/ work rate trait, he still needs to do some work to get that back but let’s be fair like the rest of the team he’s still finding his stride.

Think it looks increasingly like we will start most league games with one striker and if so we will probs need one more for the campaign. So I suppose the question is are we REALLY likely to find a better third choice at this level? For me it’s unlikely well not without spending silly money anyway, on a player who at most will likely be playing 20 mins a week. Besides Nouha has always been good as gold, never had his toys out of the pram during the bad times.

In a world of Afobes and ‘heads gone’ wouldn’t it be nice if we showed some of that loyalty that we all moan about not getting back?! Especially for a lad who has always at least tried to do his best for the club, not saying he’s a world beater but who knows…. bit more quality either side he may just find the goals this year. Not been a bad start for him so far, hope we at least give him a fair crack till Jan…he at least deserves that! COYW.

Your right bullysboy.
Dicko will become 3rd choice striker though. Nothing against him as a person but Nuno and the board know they need a prolific striker someone who plays and strikes fear in the opposition. Dicko did that with sako and afobe but those days are gone and that system would struggle against the 3-4-3 system. I think there will be a lot of movement over the next few weeks. Nuno is assessing offers coming in with the board as well as seeing what options come up with Mendes contacts. I can see 3 still been signed but it will be quality rather than quantity.
