Judah just tweeted this.

Raul Jimenez update

The news everyone had hoped and prayed for from club doctor Matt Perry:

"We are delighted with the reports from his specialist; he has made excellent progress. He should be ready to leave hospital by early next week. ".

02 Dec 2020 21:41:59
Think it's all going as well as it probably could of, this far anyway He deserves some good fortune for the class act he is. Still imagine he's out for the season.

02 Dec 2020 21:51:09
Great news let's hope this isn't a career finisher.

03 Dec 2020 04:46:24
From what's been said so far seems like that won't be the case. Early doors obviously. he's openly said he wants to be back soon.

Big issue with these types of injury from the little I know is internal damage to the brain. Not the crack to the skull itself Tears and what not deeper down. Fact he is been released from hospital this early would say is a good sign. His scans must be positive for that to happen.

03 Dec 2020 06:30:19
That’s great news, football is secondary to everything else in this instance. Wishing you a speedy recovery Raul.

02 Dec 2020 10:40:22
Romain Saiss was at my kids school yesterday introducing his son as he's moving to the school. Is he moving on as I live in north Cheshire?

02 Dec 2020 20:58:57
Seems strange because isn't Saiss supposed to be isolating because he's caught C.V.?

02 Dec 2020 21:49:44
Old Wulf E&S reported that on 23rd Nov that Saiss had tested positive on international duty so he may have finished his quarantine by now.

02 Dec 2020 22:28:00
So that means Man U or Everton then, or Stockport.

28 Nov 2020 15:53:55
Nino complaining about fixture congestion and playing too many games. On our day we can beat anyone but we are inconsistent. We want to be back in Europe so a solution could be to rest players for the league and go all out for the FA Cup.

30 Nov 2020 06:50:19
Played well against Arsenal last night. Good result, just hoping Raul is okay.

30 Nov 2020 10:17:53
Operation for fractured skull. Wishing speedy recovery for him, football out the window in regard to that. Get well Raul!

What a night to make you a proud fan though. Biggest show of resolve I've seen from this team.

30 Nov 2020 11:59:17
Only watched the game this morning so bit late with comments.
First well done Rated - called for 4 2 3 1 and got it and didn't it do well! {Semedo in fact played so far forward it was almost the 3331 that I suggested - or am I being optimistic}
Unlike many posters on various other Wolves sites I didn't think the Jimenez incident was anything other than a clash of heads {other posters were calling for a card - red - for Luiz}
But not happy with the "penalty" - don't blame the ref as it was v fast and hard to be sure in real time but Andre Mariner { fresh from a poor game last week when he certainly didn't cover himself in glory with a weak and less than balanced performance} should be thoroughly ashamed of himself for missing, despite having the option to watch it in slow motion a often as he liked, what in fact was a clear foul. Why indeed was he given Wolves twice in a row particularly after a poor game when he had seemingly favoured the opposition the week before and in a fair world, obviously not the one in which we live, what punishment should he receive. A player would be removed from the firing line after two games as poor as that - so will he be suspended?
Surely he won't be given a Wolves game again this year?
Otherwise:
Moans - didn't finish game off - still missing a fair few chances and retreated for last 20 + minutes into a passive negative shell that has cost us so often in the past I'm not sure why we still do it.
Pluses - lots. Marcal v v solid and despite RAN's positives surely Marcal now plays on the left of defence either in a 3,4 or 5.
Neto and Podence continue to be excellent indeed improving- "new" system seems to help them. Traore continued his 2nd half re Saints performance - almost back to best and despite my earlier negativity have to say Moutinho was superb again but this time for the whole 90 mins not just the last 25
Little shout also for Silva who, with his first meaningful minutes, did ok.
Ratings
Patricio - 7 {had nothing to do}
Semedo - 6 {see comments of previous games - although even better going forwards than normal}
Boly 7
Coady 7
Marcal - 8
Moutinho - 8
Dendonker -5 {was not as involved as normal and surely needs to improve his finishing}
Traore 7 (still frustrates and also should be doing far better with his goal scoring chances)
Podence 9 ( not sure why he came off! )
Neto 9 (superb! )
Jimenez - n/ a
Silva - 6 ( ok. v composed and linked well - hopefully his nose for goal will mean that a few of the half chances that came his way will be converted in the future)
thoughts?

30 Nov 2020 13:32:39
35million for Silva . WHY?

30 Nov 2020 14:31:07
Give him a bit of time only 18, they obviously see something in him to shell out that sort of doe.

30 Nov 2020 15:59:29
Bad news on Raul. Do we need to dip into the market or can we adapt?

30 Nov 2020 17:33:34
Personally I think we will bring a striker in.
My preference Ivan Toney.

30 Nov 2020 18:33:24
I think it's a little early to start talking replacements. too soon comes to mind.

I don't think Ivan Toney will ever make an elite level player.

If we go for anyone I truly hope its Matheus Cunha brazilian from Hertha Berlin. He will be truly world class in couple years . Plus linked with us before.

30 Nov 2020 19:17:23
I reckon origi on loan if he gets the ammunition he could score 10 league come January.

30 Nov 2020 20:37:14
Origi is a very decent shout on loan. Is there any ruling to get an emergency early loan for situations like this.

30 Nov 2020 21:47:02
Tedski- Was Rooney worth £25m to United after 3/ 4 months in the squad then!? Mind you, retrospectively was £25m a lot to pay for a player that went on to break the clubs high scoring record?! Of course I'm not guaranteeing Silva can/ will do that but I am pointing out that your complaint isn't about the player (Silva) its about investing in potential! Always going to be a gamble, always going to divide opinion BUT to suggest that Fabio should have repaid his fee within 16 weeks at the tender age of 18 to be honest is laughable! Don't get me wrong one day you may be right but let's wait and see before judging the value eh?! 👍
Personally I was VERY impressed by how much he'd already come on from the first app. Held the ball up well and played a big part in a goal and should have had a VERY good/ selfless assist if Adama could finish! 🐺.

01 Dec 2020 06:29:12
Very happy to wait for Silva to shine. It's just that 35M (I read somewhere that was cheap) and being called a 'generational talent' conjours up images of a Messi a Ronaldo or a Zidane. He doesn't really seem much better in his playing position than any other 18yr old at Wolves.

Something isn't quite right. It has to be that he hasn't settled yet and still getting to grips with the physicality and pace of the English football amongst other things. Nuno, Mendes, Fosun and the scouts can't get something like that wrong.

Good luck to him. He will definetly get chances in the team now.

01 Dec 2020 16:48:02
Toms Tatters : A “clash of heads” is an accidental coming together when two (or more) players are actually challenging for the ball, a player who runs ten yards directly at an opponent arrives after the ball is headed away not only endangering opponents but even himself is at the very least “reckless”and needs to be looked by the “powers that be”, Luiz needs taking out of the game for a few games for the safety of himself and others.

01 Dec 2020 20:01:53
You must have been watching something else then Oxley. It was a clear accident but luckily Raul is on the road to recovery.

01 Dec 2020 20:55:09
Behave Oxley! 🙈 I can't stand Luiz and think the guys a donkey but I don't think he could have done that intentionally even if he wanted too! It was only reckless cause he miss timed the jump but that happens especially on corners! Thank god no one at the club has taken the same line as you cause it would be embarrassing. Coady said it himself, it's a game there are risks! Doesn't mean someone has to be at fault. Besides which I would point out that Rauls head was in the same place (which was kinda the problem), so just because Raul came off worse why then does that make it just Luiz fault?! I wish Raul nothing but good thoughts and a speedy recovery but if you want a sport without risk get some chess on TV! If there's contact there's risk simple as that 👍.

01 Dec 2020 23:47:42
Defo accidental clash of heads however Luiz hand in Jimenezs mouth was dirty play imo could of ripped his jaw out too.

But what's important now is Rauls recovery and health.

21 Nov 2020 17:25:30
We need West Brom to get a draw with Manchester United.

25 Nov 2020 21:36:04
We never need that lot to get anything.

26 Nov 2020 11:01:48
Now we need Sheff Utd to beat West Brom.

28 Nov 2020 11:25:51
Id take 17th place now if the rubbish got relegated and folded as a club.

01 Dec 2020 21:43:54
No way Ragingbull West Brom can fight their own battles they are 14th at best and are making up numbers in the premier but we can finish better than last season our league position is good already I am going 60 points.

16 Nov 2020 16:36:01
Juventus want Traore now and have asked about a swap deal with Paulo Dybala, what is this Dybala like? anyone know.

16 Nov 2020 17:44:35
He's a very good player but although I've mentioned the Neto to Juve rumour, this is a case of the media having nothing to do so they make up stories.

16 Nov 2020 18:40:07
ok cheers Jas.

16 Nov 2020 20:33:53
Saw this to Nelly. I'd take Dybala any day of the week! Can play numerous positions and especially good in the No.10 role which we desperately need.

17 Nov 2020 07:04:56
I'd say the Traore situation looks the most likely something happening. Said it was a concern a few weeks back that he hasn't signed a new contract.

Lots of media stating he is unhappy not to be starting because he hasn't put pen to paper. Whether there is anything in that or not. Could be rubbish

Fact remains he is the most explosive winger in the world, completely unplayable at his best. We won't get top dollar for him without the new contract +playing time. Players invariably get sold when contracts aren't signed.

17 Nov 2020 10:55:53
Tom - spot on!

17 Nov 2020 12:04:03
Unplayable - that’s obviously what Nuno thinks, looks like a repeat of the Jota situation, we’ll have to settle for watching our World - beaters on TV playing for the “big Clubs”.

17 Nov 2020 14:30:48
As Leicester and Southampton and indeed all bar the big 6 have had to do in recent times, in fact even Spurs and Arsenal have been raided in the not too distant past by MU and MC respectively.
However we are v sensibly run and Nuno does seem to have a great relationship with the squad so hopefully we can hold it together better than others have done and if the kids we have bought over the last few transfer window develop as hoped maybe we can cross over and become a " big team" ourselves.
Fingers crossed!

17 Nov 2020 19:30:37
This is the same Paulo Dybala that pulled out of a move to Spurs when they were a champs league team right? The same player Juve have previously said they want to make a focal point of the team?! The same player in fact that has recently asked for a rise on his already HUGE wage?! Call me a sceltic but I suspect that him being tied to us and Juve being tied to Neto are all just part of the negotiation process! Just done for bargaining power, Juve making him think they are looking at alternatives then him being tied in a swap to show he's not irreplaceable?! In fact as if to prove the point here's a direct quote from his agent "I have read the rumours in the newspapers through the last few days and they're completely false"
Don't get me wrong would been very exciting if it had been true! Who knows what goes on but how often is there any truth in these rumours, I'd say 1 in 10 would be a generous estimation in my experience! COYW.

20 Nov 2020 16:26:07
I don't understand what the contract has to do with anything. He is under contract to us. The next team will sign him to a longer contract, if they wish.
If they want him, they have to pay us what we want unless there is a release clause that is lower than that.

22 Nov 2020 08:05:11
It has everything to do with it.

You might be right in alluding to the contract he currently has until 2023 is little cause for immediate concern. but for immediately securing we get the best out of the long term return it definitely is.

For one, almost all of our top stars have extended by 2 or 3 years. Raul for instance. That massively puts suitors off and avoids other teams making cheeky/ tempting offers.

What I mean is we are unlikely to loose a player like that for anything other than a stupidly high price tag

You throw Adama's so called 'relaxed' contract stand off into the mix and everyone starts to question things. Those cheeky offers might start rolling in. If he isn't committing his long term future to the club in the next year, I would put money on him leaving. Genuinely think Nuno see's him as part of our future. What a success story, but this does need resolving sooner rather than later.

15 Nov 2020 16:24:33
Sports Mole via Tuttosport reporting that Juventus are looking to sign Pedro Neto in either January or next summer. Hope they've got the £100m that he's worth.

16 Nov 2020 07:25:00
May as well start chucking ridiculous price tags on players under contract till 2025.

16 Nov 2020 14:49:33
I have.

26 Nov 2020 13:41:57
Coming the other way what about Eriksen - apparently available for £12m?
He could be the attacking goal scoring mid we seemingly need?
Ok wages will be v high at moment, (Allegedly £160k pa), but perhaps if we are merely paying £12m we could structure his remuneration as some sort of "fee" of say £3m a year and wages of £100k a week to put him in line with Moutinho, last years top wage earner, (Jimenez might now earn more? ) .
He is only 28 and was - at Spurs a couple of years ago - sensational. Yes it appears that he is not that player any more but at £12m surely worth a punt that he can be rediscovered as players of that quality aren't normally available to Wolves.
Indeed given the problems he has had over the last 12 months in Milan he might be malleable re wages?
Thoughts?

14 Nov 2020 12:42:56
Anyone else heard the rumour about Wolves changing kit manufacturers from Adidas to Castore.

From what I've read, Adidas deal is worth £3m a season and runs until 2022.

The Castor deal will be worth £1m a season and Wolves are in negotiations to break the deal with Adidas 1 year early.

The report also states that Rangers are getting £5m a year and Newcastle will too if they sign, however this is for all official merchandise whereas our deal is only for the kits and not wider retail items.

Strange that we'd consider a sponsor offering less money.

Can the Eds shed some light on this.

{Ed002's Note - I don't know any of the details but if the amount involved is as low as that the club would get a significant profit share on sales and the deal would be simply for teh supply of kit.}

14 Nov 2020 16:48:06
Cheers Ed. Just done a little more research and it mentions that the club and manufacturers would split the profits. Rangers are tied into the new style contract and have seen a significant rise in income.

{Ed002's Note - That makes sense Jas.}

14 Nov 2020 20:58:29
I have not a clue on these things but could this just be a reaction to the current situation with our revenue streams? By that I mean the club needs to make more from merchandise (thus wanting a larger share of the profits) to help compensate for the lack of matchday income?

13 Nov 2020 05:15:25
Like we've gone back in time but. heavily linked with Renato Sanches again.

In fairness at Lille he looks to be turning into the player people thought he could be.

Its what we are crying out for in terms of dynamism in the middle. doesn't get much more than him, ideally a midfielder who offers a bit of everything.

13 Nov 2020 13:06:03
If we could get him back to where he was in 2016 he would be an incredible signing - still only 23.

However he seems to have been struggling and indeed has barely played since 2016 - a long time ago.
Consequently it would be a gamble but if he was as good as he might have been we wouldn't have a sniff now as he would be a regular at one of the world's leading sides and not lookng for a move to Wolves!

For me then its a maybe but I think we could do better - although I guess it all depends on wages and fees we would be looking at for the various options.

13 Nov 2020 19:50:32
Expect a transfer window like no other 3 outgoings I’m fairly sure of.

14 Nov 2020 00:54:26
Like to elaborate?

14 Nov 2020 05:23:28
That would be too easy future. he doesn't sound all mystic then does he.

14 Nov 2020 20:40:26
Tom - I want to believe that when people make statements on here they do so for a reason but.?
Didn't he claim that there would be one change to the team against LC only for Nuno to send out the same 11?
However to be fair I think he did identify a "surprise" against Palace and RAN "surprisingly" made his debut?
I would point out though that in the same thread I explicitly suggested we should pick RAN as we needed his (ALLEGED) attacking verve - even though I admitted I knew nothing about him.
So perhaps I am fitting facts to his statements overly generously.
Like a newspaper horoscope if you are sufficiently vague people can read more into it than they should
Perhaps I should remember that even a broken clock tells the correct time twice a day!

15 Nov 2020 07:11:18
We need midfielders who offer more going forward. It's a no brainer. I'd liked to have seen more of Vitinha by now. Obviously slowly integrated into the team.

That said we don't start using these players they will soon won't to move on. Look at Pedro Goncalves we had. Never played a game. he's absolutely tearing it up now at Sporting Bruno fernandes style.

15 Nov 2020 15:21:49
Tom - agree with both your points.
We def need to improve the midfield balance and you are correct that the new players need integrating.
The integration is however hard to do especially as we got knocked out of league cup - the only "free" games - in the 1st round.
Guess we aren't strong enough to "risk" playing players who may not be ready.
We can't carry a player as maybe some of the stronger teams can.
In the perfect world {or the one we should have been living in last August! ) we would have bought some players for now - ready to play guys - and some for the future who could have gone out on loan at Championship level sides to "harden" them up.
Perhaps Silva (and one or two of the others) need (s) to go out on loan in January but as he/ they is/ are (on) the bench that will require us to buy further players {FFP? } capable of playing now in January - Marcal types?

12 Nov 2020 22:50:55
Spiers tweeted Coady came into contact with someone who has C.V. hence why he wasn't playing tonight.

09 Nov 2020 12:38:11
I agree with Roy Keane in that Wolves do not play exciting brave football except for the odd five minutes here and there. The only exception being the Palace game. When they are exciting and brave, no one can beat us. Unfortunately, from before the end of last season, it's been the same situation. Last season we all put it down to fatigue. This season there is no excuse.

09 Nov 2020 20:43:53
Agree mate, it is time to try a new approach on the pitch. 4-4-2
Also var it's awful when it goes against us, but it will even itself out. I'm sure over the season,
We can't keep starting so sluggish in first half of our games, I can't weigh up why, it's as if we aren't prepared to express ourselves, then when we go behind we get going
Strange indeed.

09 Nov 2020 21:39:03
Said it before 4231 would be a ideal formation I think, but end of the day Nuno is manager not me and he knows a lot more than me.

10 Nov 2020 13:55:59
Greyleg Nono will never go 442 agree we should start every game the way se did agains Palace but for 90 mins not just second half 3 tough games comming up got to be on it from the start to finish.

11 Nov 2020 17:47:41
Moit been an oideya two git spellcheck les.

11 Nov 2020 19:30:58
Point taken Old Wolf senior moment Nuno LoL liking the black country spelling mate.

12 Nov 2020 19:01:10
Coady not even on the bench.
That's loyalty for you
Well done Southgate ☹️.

12 Nov 2020 20:38:45
Probably just annoyed that Coady has more of an influence on the team than he does. 🤣.
