First week in October and Renato Sanchez back playing for Lille. Took a lot of criticism when I suggested we should have completed the deal for him when we had the chance. Admit he returned ahead of schedule, hopefully he doesn't suffer any setback and we can complete a transfer early in January.

07 Oct 2021 22:54:17
Easy to say now but let's wait and see if he's still fit come Jan first eh. These things are all relative, if someone had bought Jonny just after his 'recovery' they'd be feeling fairly silly right now! 👍.

17 Oct 2021 15:09:21
Interesting that he's back suggests media reports don't know the full story. As I am sure Sky were the ones reporting expected return was 12 weeks.

Looking at the transfer window now I don't think the club did awful.
They brought Trincao in to support Netos absence.
They brought Hwang Hee-Chan to take the pressure off Traore and Raul.
And the team are all getting back into a normal rhythm. With return of Raul, Boly, Podence and Marcal.
And Jonny and Neto to return at some point.
Lille stopped Botman and Sanches leaving not Wolves or the players makes things interesting as maybe our reputation has improved more than we think for the future.

05 Oct 2021 00:48:38
Adama Traore will be sold in January for 50m after refusing to sign a new deal.

05 Oct 2021 07:13:14
That means he's signed then. Cheers.

05 Oct 2021 09:05:19

05 Oct 2021 09:41:24
If you are right which I doubt I'd take the money and re-invest.

05 Oct 2021 10:29:39
I needed a good laugh this morning.

05 Oct 2021 11:40:30
Can I have the winning lottery numbers please, ITK?

05 Oct 2021 13:40:19
If he doesn't sign a new deal, there is little likely hood of us getting £50m for him as he enters his final year. I doubt we'd even be offered the £30m Spurs are said to have tabled in January.

05 Oct 2021 16:12:11
Consider this, where does Traore fit in the New Year when the front three will probably be Neto, Jiminez and Hwang.? Don't hesitate, take the money and keep the fee and the wages he will demand for new, quality signings.

05 Oct 2021 18:21:53
It will be a lovely problem to have won't it!
I wouldn't discount Podence either and Trincao will also have his fans.
At the moment if we can get Traore playing as he did in the first 3 games of the year - but with Jimenez and hopefuly now Hwang firing as well - we could be scarily strong going forwards.
With Coady now seemingly looking his former self as well and driving the defence things are looking up.
At the moment my biggest "concern" player wise is Semedo who seems to have lost confidence and is playing too conservatively.
But he is one of the better RWBs in the league and (like Jimenez and Coady who also struggled earlier on in the season) just needs to be given time and space to get his head sortedk and he will be fine.
Don't forget Otto who is one of the best LBs in the league will also return soon.
If in Jan we can get a CM in to allow Moutinho some rest and rotation and a CB in to cover Saiss and Boly's abscence in Africa we will be well set!

06 Oct 2021 06:46:12
Imo if Traore doesn't start having an end product and a consistent end product like others have said above we won't get anywhere near £50 million if he leaves us.

Agree with Neto back Lage will be spoilt for choice,
Trincio Neto hwang jiminez silva (Traore or not)

A possibility if it turns out Traore leaves with the freed up funds plus the money shi says we had last window buy a top class midfielder and/ or a centre back which we have clearly all wanted or want.

Stick with the faith and imo in the long run we ALL will be very happy indeed.

Being wolves is magic and I love it.

06 Oct 2021 08:48:46
Phil - I think you have to be careful about being sucked into this "he has no end product" debate and not judge him via Ceefax statistics but by his performances on the pitch
If you look how the real experts view him - the other 19 Premier League managers - you will see that they know his true value which is why they double, treble and even quadruple mark him and (therefore must) leave other Wolves players in oceans of space unmarked.
They devise defensive schemes to counter him and foul him at every opportunity.
Despite this (and the fact that when we attack there is often only 1 player to pass to - you need someone to assist to get an assist) he still creates 2 or 3 good chances every game and as Marcal did once on Saturday puts balls into places players should be. It is not his fault that they aren't there or if they are the chances aren't taken.
{If he is to stop (under pressure from 4 opponents) scan the horizon for a supporting colleague before passing that will often mean hitting the ball 30 yards backwards and look at the furore that casused when Moutinho did it once last week! }
When Jimenez was fit and Jota and Doherty were supporting him he did more than ok statistically.
Sadly of late none of those things have been available to him and he has struggled statistically.
If Hwang and Jimenez get upto his speed we and he will be fine.
ps you missed out Podence?

06 Oct 2021 10:58:06
Ok mate each to their own thoughts,
I stand by my clear opinion.
Hope it turns out the best outcome regarding Traore however it turns out.
When I was at the man utd game I thought of you when I was close up watching Traore leaving 2 3 utd players for dead, I thought I wish Thefutureisoldgold was sitting next to me.
Yes podence too.

06 Oct 2021 19:01:45
Agbonlahor is a troll.

07 Oct 2021 09:09:52
Phil that would be great - plenty of debate but hopefully lots of genuine support for the team!
ps do you follow Sofasport - it is a multi sport statistical analyis tool that looks at a plethora of data to come up with ratings for players - amongst other things.
Traore is currently ranked 13th in the Prem (with one or two of those above him having only played a few games - eg Chalobah of Chelsea) . Neves at 49 is our next highest ranked player.
Obviously everything is an opinion but other than by Wolves fans it seems he is v v highly rated and I am scared he will leave (for peanuts) and we will never see his like again at the Wolves - as I have said before he is in my view the best player in my lifetime to play at Wolves.

07 Oct 2021 17:24:59
I haven't seen that mate.
I know you're Traore's biggest fan that's why I was thinking of you when I was at the match.

07 Oct 2021 20:28:01
I'm with TFIOG Traore is one of a kind (other players have pace, other players have power but none have as much of both as Traore) . Plus for someone who is 5'9 - 5'10 he wins his fair share of headers and has great dribbling skills. I'd be disappointed to sell for £75mill but won't be surprised if we have to accept well below that if he doesn't sign a contract extension.
For all those who don't rate him how often does he get you on your feet as he goes past players? His end product is improving he does now look up so is likely to improve further in that respect so I for two would be sad to see us sell him.

07 Oct 2021 20:51:52
phil - you are a good man!

17 Oct 2021 03:10:05
Phil I think my street heard me scream the house down when neves cleverly knew how to deflect that shot off targett brilliant I bet it was pandemonium in villa park come on me babbies.

19 Sep 2021 23:12:26
Can't help wondering who'll be gone first. Bruno or Nuno.

20 Sep 2021 14:01:34
Funnily enough Sharesum I was thinking exactly that myself.

22 Sep 2021 13:33:31
I think lose tonight and Sunday the clock will start ticking.
I don't blame Bruno it's the players I blame.

23 Sep 2021 05:50:03
I just can't see what Bruno brings to molineux. Fosun want cheap and this is what they get. The injuries we are getting, will soon start to show. By January we could quite possibly be looking at the championship next season. They brought this manager in and failed to back him, so I ask the question, is he just a stop gap. We are the new Sheffield United of this season.

24 Sep 2021 13:32:57
Careful demon, criticism is frowned upon by quite a few who refuse to see the Club isn’t just standing still it’s going backwards at an alarming rate. Baring in mind there were hardly any additions in the summer, this group of players have now won only four PremierLeague matches from the last eighteen played and two of those were against teams that went on to be relegated, saw their Head Coach give up on them and leave (by mutual consent) and start every game like they’ve never seen each other. Even the most die - hard fans must be starting to get just a little concerned. Last time we were relegated we won our first two games and drawed the third (just saying)

24 Sep 2021 14:36:41
I have a bad feeling that the dressing room isn't united behind Bruno we have seen this before years ago and we were relegated twice obviously I don't actually know but if someone has to go then I hope it happens now not in March when we are fighting for survival.

24 Sep 2021 14:49:03
There's critism and constant silly posts Oxley.
Demon has posted imo a very good point and structural critism no one has any issues at all with posts like that.

25 Sep 2021 15:49:11
I blame Bruno for sticking with Raul "I no longer can hit the target" Jimenez and Adama "all show" Traore when Podence, Hwang and Fabio have all done more than them in one cup game.

Sorry but Traore is a waste of space. He is like Zaha. Looks good at a club like ours but put him at Chelsea and he'd be forever shown at news years on "prem leagues top xx flops" videos on YouTube and Five.

Raul has lost it. We can't keep giving him time. Put him in u23s and if he still can't score ship him to Mexico. I'm not sure why Mexico want him for internationals. They not seen our games? Guy is a liability.

Hwang and Podence look streets ahead of Raul and Adama.

Time to get rid of Saiss, Adama, Raul and Marcal and get in better players. Dendonker is only on reprieve cause he managed to finally do something against spuds.

As for who will go first. Nuno. How many managers have spuds had since Rednap. Sorry but he will be gone by Xmas. The only way Lage is gone is if we are bottom 3 at Xmas.

26 Sep 2021 18:31:11
Raul has lost it has he?! What a load of tripe! If you'd had your way Raul 'the liability' would have been playing in the u23 today's, great way to treat a hero of the club! You sure your an actual Wolves fan Flawed?! Shocking 🤣.

27 Sep 2021 15:09:51
PF 0 Raul 1
If there is any criticism of the team, don't blame Santo or Lage.
It was the severely bad decision-making of Shi and Sellars in last summer's transfer window, left the Club with a poor squad incapable of scoring all last year (only 37 league goals) . Nuno did well to keep us up.
Yet another incompetent recruitment window this summer, also left us without players who can score.
Bruno is doing well to get any goals out of the current side, hopefully we will stay up.
We need to see Shi and Sellars sacked!
Santo was great for us, very sad to see him clearly struggling with Levy and a group of "Big time Charlies".

27 Sep 2021 16:46:25
How exactly was the recruitment 'incompetent' as you put it?

Bruno Lage has openly come out and said that the squad needs additional signings BUT he does not want players to fill the squad, only players that can improve the squad. He wants players who will push the current players to become better, not players who will only play if others are injured.

Jeff Shi has said that money was not the problem. The problem was trying to convince players to give up Champions League/ Europa League football to join us.

Trincao and Sa were players who have been convinced simply because, Sa wanted to play in a better league and Trincao wanted regular playing time.

The likes of Botman, Sanches (injured) and Kamara are playing regularly for their teams and in the elite competitions.

27 Sep 2021 19:59:21
Jas - to be fair Trincao was also being forced out by his club for monetary rather than playing reasons. Barcelona could be a good shop to buy in in January aswell.

Until we are back in a European competition our issue will always be finding players who will want to come to us and are good enough to improve the first 11 (you and Jeff are right it's not necessarily about money) .

I see the clickbaits are linking us to Insigne (age and wages suggest that's not our usual profile for recruitment so I would rate as unlikely) .

28 Sep 2021 07:33:59
JasM, Really?!
Shi and Sellars have controlled transfer policy over the last 3 windows.
To most fans, lack of goals has been a major concern for many months.
We only managed 37 league goals last season.
Wasted valuable resources last summer and didn't bring many goals.
Not much in January and no goals signed this summer.
Villa by contrast, bought in 2 strikers at sensible prices, Brentford signed Toney etc.
So it is not about spending big, but having an efficient scouting network.
We clearly do not have such a structure. Thank God for Gestifute, otherwise we would be nowhere.
The CEO and Head of Football need replacing.

28 Sep 2021 09:14:08
RugelwyWolf2, yes really.

Just watch Bruno Lages interview after the window closed where he confirms that he made the decision not to sign players if they didn't improve the squad.

I know that a lack of goals have been a concern over the last few months but did you forget that Jimenez was injured for that period but is now back. If we bought in a new forward (which we actually have, Hee Chan and Trincao, remember them? ) What would you have done with Jimenez and Silva. I know the easy answer is 'sell them' but if Silva is so poor, who would buy him.

How about just supporting the club rather than berating them.

28 Sep 2021 12:55:53
Agree with Jas.

If you look at that we so nearly won our first 3 games if we had we would be top of the league with 15 points.
To me all is not as bad as the table shows at present.
Football more so in the premier league the margins of winning or not can be very small.
I for one are behind the club.
In a perfect happy ever after world we would have a squad to match any in the league but being patient I am under the belief that one day we will or at least be close to.

28 Sep 2021 13:17:36
How's that humblepie taste PF?

30 Sep 2021 07:41:28
Sorry JasM, we clearly both support our wonderful Club, but we have different perspective on the current situation.
What is concerning is there appears to be 2 factions;the manager and his team and the senior management.
Santo was frustrated with a poor transfer window last summer. Silly money spent on players who did not strengthen the squad. For example, we were desperate for more goals, couldn't rely on Raul (50% of our goals the season before) and we sold Jota and Doherty, most of the rest. We spent silly money on Silva AND according to various sites pay him £80k a week (now valued at £6m! ) .
Santo did really well when we lost Raul to keep us up.
He was let go and we bring in a manager with a reputation for attacking football.
Senior management then have a second summer window and again fail to sign goals.
It is clear from the first game, Lage delivers on a more attractive way to play. However now he is already frustrated he does not have the goal scorers in the squad thanks to the senior management.
So, who is right, 2 good managers or the Club's policy-makers?
Like many, I will passionately support the team and manager, but I will not support the incompetent CEO and Head of Football.
Hopefully neither will Fosun.

30 Sep 2021 12:34:56
OK, we'll agree to disagree. I think Fosun bringing in Mosquera, Trincao, Sa and Hee Chan shows that they have ambition.

I don't know why everyone keeps blaming Fosun for selling Doherty and Jota. Both wanted to leave. Should Shi have dug his nails in like Daniel Levy at Spurs with Harry Kane?

We finished 13th last season and the board came out and admitted their mistakes and are trying to correct them.

As for Fabio Silva, he's on £18k per week. Don't read everything you read in the media.

30 Sep 2021 13:29:23
Good discussion JasM!
Totally agree with you on the signings of Mosquera, Trincao, Sa and Hee Chan. all look good additions. However, signings did not address the shortage of goal-scorers and broader mid-field issues.
Like you, I do not blame the Club for selling Jota. Was not a Nuno first-choice at time of sale, Neto seen as more capable of developing further.
Club offered a very good price as Liverpool were panicking and had lost 2 other options.
So, we get good money (eventually), Player allegedly doubles his wages and Liverpool were happy. A win for everyone. Yes, Jota is scoring, who wouldn't in that team!
Nuno wanted an up-grade on Doherty. not sure we got that for the money spent. But a good sale for a player now not playing in the Premiership!
You have cheered me up on Silva's salary, would be madness to pay the money rumoured.
But back to my central theme, admitting mistakes is good, BUT why 12 months later do you fail to secure players for the areas everyone know need strengthening?
It shows we are glaringly under-performing on recruitment. We have to rely so heavily on Gestifute, God bless them, because our local set-up is so poor.
So, to say again if I were Fosun, some big changes at the top would be made.

30 Sep 2021 14:56:03
Last season was a very strange one as far as I'm concerned. We basically had 2 weeks break between seasons due to our Europa League commitments.

In relation to the mistakes regarding signings, yes, last season they were questionable. Semedo wasn't up to speed but at the time of signing, everyone thought he was an upgrade on Doherty. Fabio Silva was never earmarked for the 1st team but circumstances dictated that he was thrown in when clearly not ready. To ease the burden on Silva, William Jose was brought in and that, I will admit was a mistake, even though it didn't look like it when announced.

Semedo now looks a much better player and if he could improve his finishing, would be the best RB in the league. Marcal has been good at times and bad at others but the fact that Ait Nouri is being suggested to come into the team shows again that he was a good signing too, likewise Hoever.

Although I was shocked and saddened when Nuno was relieved of his duties, I can honestly say that I have enjoyed the style of football we have played since Lage came in. Likewise, my cousin is a Spurs STH and he has told me that he hates that way that Nuno has set up Spurs to play.

30 Sep 2021 15:53:43
Likewise JasM our problem was before Brunos appointment, I like is way of playing and we need to judge him on is team when he gets players who he wants to play to is system.

13 Sep 2021 12:57:45
Any news on traore signing a new contract?

15 Sep 2021 22:16:53
Not yet but from a few sources it sounds like him and his agent want to insert a release clause which is holding things up (either the club don't want one or think the fee proposed is too low) .

17 Sep 2021 09:03:32
Had to laugh at the Graham Roberts comment ex spurs player saying why would Traore want to sighn for Wolves when he can sighn for a better club just shows how jealous they are of our football club.

17 Sep 2021 11:16:14
The only fans who think Spurs are a top 6 club are Spurs fans.

At least Liverpool, Man U, Man City, Arsenal and Chelsea have won something in the last 10 years.

Since Spurs last lifted a trophy, Birmingham, Wigan, Swansea, Leicester and Portsmouth have won one of English footballs major honours. Don't see any of them claiming to be big 6.

17 Sep 2021 11:35:34
Bigwolf all Wolves fans know that we are a better club than Spurs and Wolvo is a better city than London but to a neutral it may be appealing to play in a super stadium in the capital for a team who were in the champions league final recently and regularly finish in the top six. We know Traore would be making a big mistake by going to Spurs the same as Doc but the club need to convince him and make him an offer he can’t refuse if they want him to sign.

17 Sep 2021 13:34:08
The funny thing about it is that although Spurs like to think they're top 6, they have actually been getting worse and worse:

4th:18/ 19
6th:19/ 20 on goal difference
7th:20/ 21.

18 Sep 2021 18:35:30
You lot are done, just like I told you so, not so big mouthed now lads are you. 😂😂😂😂😂😂

You're Championship fodder now and this season or next you will be there.

{Ed033's Note - Steady on.

18 Sep 2021 21:57:59
Not a chance there are at least 6 weaker teams than us by far.
Brighton, burnley, watford, norwich, beat us today but brentford when injuries settle in, leeds.
Nothing against villa far play to you, leon bailey signing of the season for sure, thought that when he signed and he had a top performance today fair play up the midlands teams.

19 Sep 2021 12:19:46
At least we didn't have to sell our stadium, that money is soon going to run out.

23 Sep 2021 05:52:41
E from wombourne. Your having a laugh aren't you, Wolverhampton better than London. Wolverhampton is a hole which needs flattening and rebuilding.

25 Sep 2021 15:50:34
Weren't villa in this position when they came up?

25 Sep 2021 15:51:43
Why would we want to keep him? Should have sold him so he could showcase his lack of end product on a bigger stage lol.

Sorry but Trincao is better than he is. Trincao has actually done something. Traore is just running man. Not sure why are fans accept it.

09 Sep 2021 16:03:12
Several news stories are quoting an interview with Botman where he states he is happy at Lille however was open to moving to Wolves.

Do you think we would be successful in a double swoop for Sanches and Botman again in the Jan window?

Ps. Sorry I seem the upset people with my to date only other post on the page about Hwang. Just didn't rate the deal. Felt MGW was better in that sort of role.

10 Sep 2021 06:40:32
I think sanches most or more likely than botman as I think Lille will put botman price up.
But anything can happen from now till January.
Regarding MGW I like him as a player but he desperately needs playing time hence his loan move. The club clearly rate him as an asset as he signed a long term deal before going to Sheffield United on loan.
Hoping MGW stays injury free and has a good season.

10 Sep 2021 09:55:58
We can't properly judge Bruno until we have recruited the players he wants. I reckon he will do well with what we have until January, and then he will surely be given the green light to sign more.

10 Sep 2021 19:00:51
Swansea were loving MGW until his recall if I remember rightly.

12 Sep 2021 07:07:16
MGW scored a better and an assist on his debut for Sheffield United.
A great start for the lad.

12 Sep 2021 08:35:40
Belter not better sorry predictive text.

12 Sep 2021 16:23:15
Interesting that Lage says he wanted to keep MGW, it suggests that it was the player that pushed for the move. Its a shame cause I think he could learnt a lot in fold with the new set up, maybe he wants to get some regular game time to be up to speed come Jan? 🤔.

07 Sep 2021 00:57:12
Wolves will be put up for sale after Christmas by Fosun who want to cut their losses. The Chinese government have also added pressure to this.

07 Sep 2021 09:37:18
Why after Christmas?

{Ed001's Note - someone has to pay for all the prezzies that they buy the kids on tick.}

07 Sep 2021 10:18:24
Look a flying pig.

07 Sep 2021 11:48:05
Let's be fair to ITK RM J, they have a 100% success rate with what they post, namely none of it ever happens.

07 Sep 2021 13:57:17
Jas M, 100% wrong, good to know. ITK probably means, I Talk Krap.

08 Sep 2021 20:07:24
Up for sale? What a load of garbage!

09 Sep 2021 11:46:22
I'm surprised ITK hasn't been banned,
mind you his stupidity is good for a laugh.

{Ed001's Note - I just assume you all know it is bollox and there is not a lot going on right now, so thought it would give you all a good laugh.}

09 Sep 2021 12:06:58
We need it tbf in these times Ed lol.

{Ed001's Note - very true.}

10 Sep 2021 17:35:12
In the spirit of good larfs Ed, when is Robert Kraft going to buy Liverpool and convert Anfield into a much more profitable ‘defatable-balls’ factory? Also do you think Mac Jones can be the new Tom Brady at the Patriots?

{Ed001's Note - Kraft did show interest at one point, maybe that was why? Erm who the new who at what?}

10 Sep 2021 17:54:22
The new NE Patriots quarterback?
He’s going to be very good (maybe 2022) after getting a bit of NFL experience this season (have to have something to contemplate while the boring soccer internationals take place) .

{Ed001's Note - I don't know anything about the NFL sorry.}

10 Sep 2021 18:07:29
No problems Ed, you know much more about soccer than the rest of us put together on here and it’s always refreshing to hear your views on other sports (Now, how did Brady get on last night…. double-headed coin, he always wins) .

{Ed001's Note - thank you mate. I have actually heard of Brady thinking about it. Before the transfer window put a stop to any time to do anything but edit, I was just starting research on an article about a Patriots team for the Great Teams series. 2007 I think it was. I had completely forgotten about it until you mentioned this.}

10 Sep 2021 18:37:50
Yes Brady seems to have been around forever.
I remember watching the 2017 Super Bowl in New York (there for a wedding and not the match) and being fascinated by an advert where Brady darts to retrieve food he has dropped on his kitchen floor whilst a cat watches (the cat’s reflexes redundant versus the might Brady) .
Later that night Brady led the Patriots to one of the all-time 4th quarter come-backs. He has been the architect of many Rocky-type plots. An sporting enigma and nearly as old as me.

02 Sep 2021 18:08:52
No Jiminez for Watford game.

02 Sep 2021 19:36:59
Nicely explained, Nigel. This is nothing to do with injury folks but due to Wolves preventing Raul flying to a red list country and it seems that the Mexicans have taken umbrage and complained to FIFA. If he'd been allowed to travel then on return isolation requirements would mean him missing two games. You just can't win!

02 Sep 2021 20:37:55
Thanks for the clarification OW.

03 Sep 2021 19:54:07
I've heard it could be 5 games he misses but we are not alone there are many who didn't let there players go to red list areas surely common sense should prevail we should respond with he has a knock and needs time to get over it so he is currently injured every other Tom dick and Harry has In past and I'm pretty sure the players would go along with I'm carrying a knock unless of course they wanted to go we will never find that out tho.

03 Sep 2021 19:55:40
Also it ain't just Mexico that has complained the Uruguay and other South American countries have done the same I think it was 5 that have complained to fifa.

03 Sep 2021 22:09:18
It's not 5 games. If the complaint is upheld, the players would be banned from playing for the 5 days immediately after the last international game.

01 Sep 2021 11:14:25
Manager and players expressed we needed depth yet we loan one in loans one out I think we have a smaller squad to when Nuno was here 🙈 plus Jimenez has been out for 13 months he might not be the same player I think they have got it totally wrong this transfer market surely they can't expect a top ten finish this year?

01 Sep 2021 13:32:46
After that fiasco I reckon they have no right to expect a finish above top 20. All I can say is that Lage (or whoever) must really rate Cundle and Jordao ( although is he even fit? ) because it will only take one injury to the midfield senior players for these youngsters to become extremely busy. I cannot understand the MGW loan as he had the potential to gain more experience on the job at the Mol than in stainless steel country languishing at the bottom of the Championship. Bizarre.

Don't think Lage had anything to do with it, Mike, as he was previously quoted as saying that he needed three or four quality additions. The Kiefer Moore enquiry smacked of the not so good Ray Hankin acquisition all those years ago.

01 Sep 2021 17:01:55
Not seen Jordao play, has anyone?
He is 22 and cost £8 mil. He is certainly old enough, anyone know if he's is fit?

01 Sep 2021 20:27:37
Jordao is injured should be back October time.
Seems to have an injury all the time.

01 Sep 2021 20:50:28
Tks Madman.

01 Sep 2021 22:22:36
Jordao is a good little player, similar to Podence but more suited to a central/ attacking midfield role. He has had a lot of injuries but was more highly rated at Lazio than Pedro was when they were there together. Seen him play and he has good vision and passing aswell as being good on the ball.

02 Sep 2021 10:15:27
Since you have an ear to the inner sanctum at Lazio, Wolfflea, do they rate Luca Romero higher than Marco Bertini? Just wondering which one to go for in January. Maybe both.

03 Sep 2021 05:20:33
What I am struggling to understand is we have a manager with a reputation for developing young players yet all we seem to be doing is sending them all out on loan. Some, such as Gibbs-White and Marques, need to be playing in the PL, not heading out on loan again. The way we are loaning out players does bring into question whether Fosun are being honest about developing players for Wolves rather than other teams and is their commitment to Wolves actually there? Just look at Pedro Goncalves a couple of years ago - apparently no good for Wolves and released yet now a full international. I will never understand the thinking on that one. Even in the Under 23s he looked something special.

03 Sep 2021 13:02:49
Can't comment on Goncalves, Tubigon, but isn't Marques only 18? Also, he's behind many others for a central defender berth so surely it makes sense to loan him out to gain first team experience. MGW is a stranger one. Few would think him good enough to be a starter but it would only take a couple of injuries or suspensions to push him right up the pecking order. A chance has therefore been taken in letting him go although he clearly needs game time to develop.

03 Sep 2021 19:42:59
Tubigon, football if full of wonderful mistakes that wouldn't have happened with hindsight - De Bruyne being rejected by Chelsea, Harry Kane by Arsenal, Ruud Gullit by Arsenal and Ipswich, Roy Keane by Villa and Sterling at QPR. The list goes on and on, but sometimes we as a club benefit from other clubs mistakes, think Bully, Robbie Keane and Lescott.

07 Sep 2021 18:47:21
Best and most famous one Jas, the story goes that Diego Maradona tried out for Sheff Utd as a youngster and was told he was to small for football! Classic five live story! 🤣👍.

25 Sep 2021 13:36:04
Didnt Jordao score on his debut for us?

31 Aug 2021 20:24:51
Reports saying the plug has been pulled from both deals due to fees.

31 Aug 2021 22:37:16
I've backed Fosun and Shi in many situations. But these last 3 days of business have been pathetic and ultimately make us look weak negotiators moving forward.

We honestly expect players like Adama to sign new contracts. its not like we needed to add maybe one more to make up the squad. We needed key players .

Lack of ambition and killer instinct. We will pay for this window.

01 Sep 2021 07:03:52
Did we not learn from last season? What happens if Neves, Moutinho, Jimenez get injured?

01 Sep 2021 07:17:47
TT, we share the same frustrations.
I still back Fosun, but only just. They have invested heavily in Wolves, but the CEO and Head of Football have managed the Club badly over the last 2 years.
I will blame Fosun if they do not change the aforementioned individuals!

01 Sep 2021 18:57:12
All about priorities for Fosun- no deadline day signings but we've got a new megastore in Shanghai. They've just not grasped the idea that success off the pitch comes from success on it.

03 Sep 2021 13:04:54
Is that another new store Billy or the one that opened 2 years ago?

03 Sep 2021 21:13:02
A new one- opened a few weeks back

It's like starting your Christmas shopping around 4pm on Christmas Eve- you always knew you needed to buy but put it off til the last minute then struggle to find anything decent. Even Lage had said we needed reinforcements and I presume things were promised when he came in. Not a great place to be.

31 Aug 2021 20:22:45
Why ON EARTH are we refusing to pay a fee as little as 12miion for someone as good as kamara. Fits the bill perfectly. Disgraceful if true imo.

31 Aug 2021 20:48:03
£24m surely we can spend that on 2 players?

31 Aug 2021 20:50:52
Because it seems Jeff is a big Messer n trying to find any excuse not to back his manager Surely they carnt expect anything from this year.

31 Aug 2021 21:11:15
Because that's what they've decided!

As frustrating as it is that's it, who pays more than they are prepared to for a car or a house?
No one.

Other clubs know Fosun have money so inflate prices artificially.
We just going to have to take it on the chin.

31 Aug 2021 21:13:27
And just said on Twitter the French kid didn't want the move, another potential Cutrone.

31 Aug 2021 21:29:25
P*** takers mate! We need a football guy back on the board. The past 4 or 5 windows now have been atrocious and embarrassing.

Sorry but, Shi and Sellars just aren’t cutting it.
Uncle Jorge even seems to have lost interest!

Trust the process,
We want to make Wolves a “Brand”
Opening mega stores worldwide and there’s no money available a joke really.

31 Aug 2021 21:49:34
Culeta-Car was valued at £12m but Marseille wanted £30m, likewise Botman valued at £18m but Lille wanted £40m, Keiffer Moore valued at £5m but Cardiff want £15m. Kamara didn't want to come, neither did Botman or Culeta-Car. Renato Sanches injury is worse than 1st thought and he won't be available until January and then his club wanted us to commit to a guaranteed sale of £50m.

Disappointing transfer window for most but I look at it rather differently as we haven't lost Neves or Traore and have added Mosquera and Trincao.

31 Aug 2021 21:58:23
Thank you Jas M for some common sense. Rare on this page unfortunately.

31 Aug 2021 22:13:18
Why leave it till the last minute to try and get players in?

31 Aug 2021 22:24:51
Botman, Sanches and Vinicius for £60m should be achievable by Wolves.
Feel free to disagree. But we are just existing this season.
I hope and pray that Raul scores 15+ goals if not it will be last season all over again. Unless Hwang has his old shooting boots with him.

31 Aug 2021 22:30:58
I think Lage and Fosun knew who they wanted but they weren't prepared to be held to ransom and forced to pay well over the market value.

We have:

GKS: Sa and Ruddy

Full Backs: Semedo, Hoever, Ait-Nouri, Marcal and Jonny (when fit)

CB's: Coady, Boly, Saiss, Dendoncker, Kilman and Mosquera.

CM's: Mouthinho, Neves and Jordao.

Wingers: Adama, Trincao, Podence, Neto

ST: Jimenez, Silva and Hwang.

Squad may be small but Dendoncker and Saiss can play either defence or midfield.

We did desperately need another midfielder but we have what we have and must get behind the team.

31 Aug 2021 22:38:20
So the fact that Botman didn't want to leave and Lille wanted £40m for him anyway or Sanches is injured until January and his club wanted a guaranteed fee of £50m is good business?

01 Sep 2021 00:01:37
So it’s common sense not to buy players in transfer windows and other clubs know Fosun have got money so inflate the prices, that’s not very fair when we sell our players for less than they’re worth and get paid in instalments.

01 Sep 2021 05:49:22
We really needed a CB - Boly and Saiss could both be off to AFCON in Jan of next year.

01 Sep 2021 07:23:02
SEVLOW1967, you may be right about posters, your view.
HOWEVER, one place definitely lacking common sense is at the top of the Club!

01 Sep 2021 08:14:22
This poor Window will come back to bite us and then we will be wishing for the Jan window to come. I hope I am wrong. The team needed the investment NOW!

01 Sep 2021 08:44:55
The team needed the investment long before Nuno left-.

01 Sep 2021 18:31:29
Agreed Oxley.

01 Sep 2021 18:38:48
Kamarra didn't want to come to the uk. About the only foreigner in France who doesn't.

01 Sep 2021 20:36:21
Jas I agree you can't do anything if a player is dead against moving to us.
But I think the club should have pushed the buttons a lot earlier for Botman, Sanchez and Vinicius.
If they had offered 35m for Botman a month ago I think they may have got him.
If Sanchez was injured why did we have other targets? Why did we let MGW go? I agree Trincao and Podence can play as an attacking midfielder. As we have Hwang on the wing.
And Vinicius was such a simple deal links with benfica they wanted 25m upfront. Surely going into our 4th season and Rauls transfer fee has been repaid we could afford Carlos for 25m?
I just don't see the firection we are going and I think they were hapless. Botman deal should have been pushed further 10 days ago.
Sanchez should have been decided a week ago.
And why the heck are we linked to Kieffer Moore. 😂.

06 Sep 2021 22:27:44
Botman did want to come. We just wouldn't pay the fee.
