Rumours Mourinho sacked. See if Nuno be tempted.




14 Apr 2021 22:08:47
For what it's worth I read an article claiming Spurs are after Nuno; seems Levy has had enough of Colombo.


1.) 15 Apr 2021 05:28:05
Apparently it would cost Spurs £40m to get rid of JM (in or around that figure)

2.) 15 Apr 2021 17:43:34
It was Man U last year.

3.) 17 Apr 2021 22:58:08
Be Man City next year.

4.) 18 Apr 2021 18:15:58
Let's face facts. Our season was over when we went out of FA cup.
Injury's ruined us.
And I don't care what anyone thinks.
Nunos on his way.

5.) 19 Apr 2021 11:07:43
Well, Spurs need a new manager. To sack at this part of the season defies logic. unless there's a new coach waiting in the wings. If so, we'll soon find out whether the Nuno to Spurs rumours are true.
Personally I don't think Nuno will go just yet.

6.) 20 Apr 2021 13:41:26
JM sacked just when the ESL was announced I wonder if they thought he would be a problem and paid him off with a silence clause.



17 Sep 2018 10:54:26
I can't for the life of me, understand why Nuno keeps faith in Bonatini. We got away with it yesterday, but we can't be so profligate in front of goal against top teams, we won't get 30 efforts on goal and need to bury our chances every game. We need a striker, not another winger.


1.) 17 Sep 2018 12:57:35
Oh bore off. If you listen or read anything Nuno and people close to Nuno say, Bonatini and Jimenez aren’t used as “out and out” strikers, they’re there to support the wingers and wing backs in attack, link play, hold the ball up, short neat one twos to create space in behind and pull a defender out of position. Traore’s goal v West Ham was down the Bonatini coming deep for the ball and drawing the defender to come with him leaving gaps for Traore to run into. It’s the way we and many other teams play now.

2.) 17 Sep 2018 13:09:15
I can't for the life of me understand why negative fans well so called fans constantly moan no matter what.

3.) 17 Sep 2018 13:35:02
Man City 28 attempts at goal against Fulham (a promoted side) 9 on target 3 goals . yes we had 30 chances, yes we missed a few, on another day two or three or more would have gone in, Joe Hart was absolutely brilliant by the way. We’re playing the best football most of us have ever seen, The team with changes from last season have only played five matches together ( in the PREMIER LEAGUE) and are getting better and better, no player deserves to be singled out as “not good enough” the strength of the Wolf is in the pack - If Nuno picks ‘em we support ‘em!

4.) 17 Sep 2018 13:37:13
I still can't believe it's not butter.

5.) 17 Sep 2018 15:09:11
Best wolves football I've ever watched ( in 40 + years ) but we definitely need another striker in January to help Raul out. How about Tommy Orpington?

6.) 17 Sep 2018 16:35:13
We're well covered for the front three, but I do like the lad Ollie Watkins from Brentford, has promise.

7.) 17 Sep 2018 22:34:56
I'm still wishing on a star for Vincent Aboubakar! I think its unlikely cause there will be MANY watching him. As much as I rate Leo and Raul for what they bring to the team (have we already forgotten the class assist by Leo the week before?! ) . But a player like Aboubakar really would take us to the next level, that said its likely to cost £30+m so probs just a dream! COYW ;)

8.) 18 Sep 2018 19:08:39
No one would be talking about Wolves missing chances if Joe Hart hadn’t saved 2 certain goals - still a great keeper ( parents are Wolves fans) .



24 Jan 2017 15:09:23
Brin6 opines we don't need a striker. Well don't know what team he's been watching! Our strikers aren't firng at all, we need strengthening all over but according to PL he's happy with his lot.


1.) 24 Jan 2017 16:19:49
If he's happy with this lot then we're in trouble offering new contracts to Batth Edwards and now Dicko doesn't show the ambition of a football club that wants premier league football . These player's are all good player's but they are definitely championship player's we need a much better standard of player for next season if we are to really push for promotion. Hope we're not the only club in world football to have been brought by billionaire's with no ambition.

2.) 24 Jan 2017 16:50:42
I would not say they are bad players but we have to get better, realy surprised if Fosun don't invest in quality players because 1877stlukes you are right with those players you mentioned who have sighned new contracts, on there performances this season I would only see them as good substitutes, if we are to get into Premier, they will have to up there game and play better to play in 1st team next season, no excuses BATTH NEEDS TO DEFEND BETTER, DICHO AS TO START FINDING THE NET AND EDWARDS NEEDS TO ADD MORE TO IS GAME IN MIDFIELD AND TAKE CONTROL OF MIDFIELD A LOT MORE.



24 Dec 2016 17:34:35
Wolves linked with Celtic's Amrose, disaster waiting to happen-complete liability.


1.) 25 Dec 2016 13:26:35

2.) 25 Dec 2016 14:03:25
Very old rumour.

PL has stated numerous times that we will ONLY be signing players with championship experience this window.

Admit I know nothing of our new signing Trincao, but hope he turns out to be the real deal. Thing is: was he bought as cover for Pedro perhaps leaving when he has recovered?


1.) 04 Jul 2021 11:37:10
Belfast I’ve seen plenty of articles suggesting Lage wants him but if he does work out it gives the club options in the market. I think Neto is a player we should look to keep and build the team around. Also on the point of Traore if we are considering selling on a cut-price deal why not keep him for 12 months more and then take the knock-down price (or otherwise if he’s had a sensational season and clubs are queuing up with interest)?

2.) 04 Jul 2021 11:50:36
Isn't it funny how ITK RM J knew nothing about this transfer?

3.) 04 Jul 2021 13:54:05
Spot on Jas.

4.) 04 Jul 2021 14:27:00
Funny enough I don't think many people if any new proves all these FOSUN haters wrong ( young but played for Barcelona) the fosun way of doing things get them in young after all the hype 5 years ago for him Barcelona spent a large sum on him and all tho his record does not look to good the last few seasons due to injuries look over 5 years what the young lad has done I think its a no brainer.

5.) 04 Jul 2021 14:53:02
The rumour that Wolves were interested in Trincao and Alena at Barcelona has been doing the rounds for a few weeks now (certainly since Lage was confirmed) .
That said usually when Fosun sign a player it’s usually out of the blue.

6.) 04 Jul 2021 16:33:36
Yes STILL A NES remember 1 story saying we were after both but they did not say much about TRINCO they were more adamant we were getting ALENA then a week or two later they said ALENA wanted to stay and fight for his place at Barcelona and nothing more so as usual FOSUN even though changed manger haven't changed the way they operate doing business in private and when signed sealed then loads of reporting on it but in most cases loads of other of there opinions about who we are going to sign next some of them are laughable and some are so far out there ain't even worth mentioning other than to fill space.

7.) 06 Jul 2021 00:15:52
I’ve seen Trincao play he’s the real deal I’m just as excited about this signing as I was with Neves and moutinho.



24 Jun 2021 14:32:40
Just looking at the glut of goalkeepers at Wolves, and more being linked. Besides Patricio we have Ruddy, A. Söndergaard, Matija Sarkić, Louie Moulden, Jamie Pardington, with Sam Johnstone and Danny Ward also being mentioned. O.t.t?


1.) 24 Jun 2021 17:07:58
Belfast, I think maybe Ruddy may be given a run in between sticks should Patricio go, I don't see any other keepers coming in unless other move on.

2.) 24 Jun 2021 18:27:46
Belfast and Sidney you've overlooked the favourite to replace rui, Sa from olympiakos.

3.) 24 Jun 2021 18:44:51
Looks like Patricio has gone to Roma now.
I would be happy with Sam Johnstone before ward. But looks like it's Jose sa.

4.) 24 Jun 2021 19:05:27
Yea it's reported 6m from roma, how much are we shelling out for Sa? Johnson would fit the bill for me tho.

5.) 24 Jun 2021 19:47:04
Just found report were paying 9m for Sa.

6.) 24 Jun 2021 20:38:56
Isn't it funny how at 5pm Corrierre dello sport reported that Roma had tied up the deal at 5pm but a few hours later the very same publication have changed their tune and say that Patricio has agreed terms and all that's left is for Roma and Wolves to agree a price. Personally, I'll wait for Wolves to confirm when the move has happened rather than the clickbait sites.

7.) 24 Jun 2021 20:40:19
I imagine a couple of keepers will be loaned out at some stage.

8.) 24 Jun 2021 20:56:47
Sa was mentioned in around 8-10m before, Patricio has been a good servant, but we need a stronger keeper to command the area, this season highlighted that when your not as good defensively, For Now Ruddy is more than capable of being our number #1.

9.) 24 Jun 2021 21:39:11
The original offer was reported as $6Mill which we rejected so why would we now accept the same offer! - they know nothing (yesterday it was claimed we wanted a minimum 12mill and Roma won't pay anywhere near that. )

Sa should be available for between 7 and 9 mill as he apparently has a clause in his contract that allows him to go for 4.5mill next year and Olympiakos want to get more now rather than lose him for such a small fee.



19 May 2021 18:52:58
That's the most energetic I've watched us play in months! Hope the second half continues like this, bringing the game to them. Ruddy playing gives me more hope!


1.) 19 May 2021 19:59:07
Yet again no punch up front. Yet again Neves and Moutinho complete wastes of space. Yet again allowing Richarlison to score after 11 games without a goal-Chris Wood syndrome. Yes a bit unlucky first half-good saves from Pickford. Undone once again by a set piece without creating anything at all from the numerous set pieces we were given. Referee poor-Digne should have at least seen a yellow. Ain't good enough and two months in the summer won't be long enough to turn around this pack of shambles.

2.) 19 May 2021 20:00:05
How was that not a penalty 😮😮😮😮😮.

3.) 19 May 2021 20:09:55
For all our possession we walk away empty handed, For me VAR got it wrong again, that a penalty in my view, and if it had been one of the big so called 6 sides it would have been given.
I'm pretty peed off after watching that game, but I'm very hopefully we will have a big turn around for next season a proper pre season, some new faces to shake up the team a bit.
I hope there will be a few players coming in, and after the last half dozen games Give Traore the contract he wants, he deserves it, I have been one of his knockers this season at times, but he has proved me wrong in the last few games and would be glad to see him stay.

4.) 19 May 2021 20:52:29
Shame they can only do it for 45mins.

5.) 19 May 2021 21:02:46
Phil as I gather you missed the first half and said you missed my match reports and “ratings” I will break my resolution not to post ratings until next season – they, as the “truth” often does, upset people you see! – and give you a potted history of the game (and ratings in a separate post) .
First the ref. On other sites Wolves fans are v v unhappy with him. However, I didn’t think he was bad – just on holiday. He clearly thought it was a pre-season friendly and officiated accordingly.
Everton particularly in the first half fouled a lot – it was as I have said many times a clear strategy to foul early and often. However, the ref did give a fair few free kicks – ok two he gave against MGW and Traore for being fouled? - but otherwise did nothing. No cards meant that Everton just carried on fouling. Indeed, for one particularly cynical one on Semedo – a pull back to stop a break the camera turned on him and he was laughing?
Their goal came from a corner that didn’t look like it should have been a corner but I can’t be certain.
However, when Traore for the umpteenth time in the game beat his man and several other people’s as well and cut the ball back Doucoure (sp? ) clearly punched the ball out for a corner. The sky commentator spotted it live and when it was reviewed in slow motion the pundit confirmed, (well he has eyes! ), that it was a penalty. Ref and VAR says no!
Re Corners we had loads and it would be fair to say we did not look like scoring from them – ever!
Defensively following Tibbsy’s comment re defending corners I looked more closely. Neves picked up Keane – a mismatch! Traore had Mina – at least 5 inches differential, RAN stood next to (not marked) DCL but it was Boly (our best aerial defender? ) who was beaten by Richarlison for the goal.
Every corner looked dangerous – not quite Brighton levels but bad!
Perhaps a set piece coach is required – both ends!
Sky brought up a stat about crosses/ headers and corners that won’t make anyone at the club happy. We are officially useless at defending anything in the air – Oxley sir you may have a good point!
Otherwise, we dominated possession and territory for long periods and looked ok if somewhat toothless.

6.) 19 May 2021 21:55:52
Thanks Thefutureisoldgold,
Its just come through on my phone screen.
You are a top man and I appreciate your post to me.
I gave my brother my humbugs (if you seen my post first thing this morning)
Well one definate is that I don't work on the sabbath so I will definitely be watching the utd game lol.
It seems I missed the best half, but Traore run was phenomenal just bad luck he coukdnt get a rocket shot away.
It was a definate penalty in my opinion.
Next season is going to be awesome I have faith we are going to be fantastic.

7.) 19 May 2021 22:28:43
Ruddy -7 Presume it was a farewell appearance but was solid and made a couple of decent saves. Certainly, he can’t be faulted for the goal.
Semedo – 6 Did ok both ways. He is v neat and tidy. A mid table player not bad at all but not worth the money we paid for him and sadly in both boxes if not in the middle 3rd a significant downgrade on the Doherty we knew (and some of us loved) over the past two seasons.
Kilman 5 Although he had little to do against a modest Everton side, he never looked particularly comfortable.
Coady 7 Best of a nervous back 3.
Boly 6 Lost his man for the goal and didn’t do anything outstanding to compensate
RAN 5 Looks good going forwards but is not a LB. Defensively weak. If we are going to play 4 at the back next year as Sky intimated, (how do they know), then we shouldn’t buy him as he can’t play LB. (ps we shouldn’t have bought Semedo either as he far better in a 5 than in a 4 as well! ) But if we are going to remain sane and play a 5 then he will be ok, but obviously not at £20m
Moutinho 5 Nowhere near as bad as other sites made out but yes, his legs have gone – I told you that last August -and he did not influence the game enough. He remains neat and tidy but is that enough for £100k a week
Neves 6 Similar to Moutinho but with a bit more bite
MGW – 6 Did ok and had one good shot on target. Odd he was taken off when we were chasing the game. Suspect a year on – either away on loan or getting cameos here – he will be ready to challenge who ever is playing CM for Wolves (presumably not Moutinho still)
Silva -4 (so as to not upset people) . Typical game (virtually anonymous but had one half chance when set up by Traore – which to be fair he did ok with but was never going to score from) Needs to stop throwing himself on the floor though – Sky commented on it and refs will have taken note. BB in a throw away comment said he may become our Andy Carroll. His comment had a pejorative tone to it with regard to Carroll but oh if only, Andy Carroll – even today’s Andy Carroll - would feast on the service Traore provides!
Traore 9 would have been 10 but he tired in the last quarter. From the 1st minute when he ran back to win a tackle beat 4 or 5 players in a 60yard run and passed to a team mate to continue the attack he dominated the game. Some of our fans will point out he didn’t score or get an assist, (they do regularly and many think he is rubbish and want him sold for peanuts) but as Sky said he can’t cross to himself and we rarely had anyone in a position for him to cross to and even if we did, they were highly unlikely to score from a cross anyway as that requires heading ability and/ or movement – something that sadly our forward line bar Traore is currently sadly lacking. He was fouled incessantly (with minimal protection from the ref who sadly didn’t think this was a serious game that required the ref to do his job) was double and treble marked but still caused havoc. Perhaps could have done better with a chance that Pickford tipped over the bar and was denied a clear penalty by VAR.
Other than getting Jimenez to return to form re-signing Traore is the most important thing we have to do this summer
Jose – 3 Like Silva but perhaps less mobile
Dendonker 5 Did v little as Everton simply closed up shop for last 20 mins or so
Vitor 4 Sadly another game where it is hard to recall if he played or not. Clearly not doing well in the competition for the young CM prospect battle with MGW. No way at £20m maybe for a nominal sum with substantial performance related add-ons you might take a chance that he develops what is supposed to be a great talent?

Not a bad performance but not a good one. We didn’t look like conceding dominating the game but corners are an Achilles heel that desperately needs addressing – our defending of them is beyond school boy bad and I can’t just blame the school boys we sadly have playing for us! However, unless Traore performs a miracle with this side we don’t look like scoring ever again!

8.) 20 May 2021 00:24:38
I thought sky's best stat was sadly a little damning! We have not scored a first half goal in 80 out of 102 Prem matches! If we are ever going to progress that stat HAS to change. A team that only ever plays to win for just 45 minutes of most games will never be able to push forwards! We really do need a shake up and I think it's on its way! Let's hope we are all happy when the dust settles 🐺👍.

9.) 20 May 2021 06:29:49
Great post Thefutureisoldgold and interesting point bullysboy I think when we have a settled side which is the same virtually every match we will have some success.
I think or more in hope should I say semedo will be a lot better next season.

10.) 20 May 2021 09:17:12
Phil I have said it a million times. If we get our injured players back we have a v strong side - just no squad depth. Nuno acknowledged this last summer but then the club messed it up and we paid the price.
Next year we will be fine - if the injured players come back and we get the summer right.
If neither of these happen then sadly SQ has a v fair point.
But surely lightening can't strike twice.
PS Yes Semedo will be fine next year. He as been fine most of this - but fine for £30m?

11.) 20 May 2021 15:17:40
thefutureisoldgold well summed up my friend, nice to read. Much better performance hardly surprising in our proper defensive line up. Nice to see Ruddy get a game. Played well I thought. Sod VAR I hate it, I might have mentioned it before! Come on Sunday then as better transfer window.



09 May 2021 10:22:36
Not since 2006 have we beaten the Seagulls. Woeful record. Hence Wolves 5/ 2 home win (imagine! ), 4/ 3 Seagulls and 12/ 5 a draw. Clearly the bookies don't fancy our chances.


1.) 09 May 2021 11:16:12
Well, Nuno is as good as his word and is using the remaining games to give the likes of Vitinha, MGW, Kilman and Hoever a run out.

2.) 09 May 2021 11:25:53
They hadn’t seen the team then either, experimental to say the least, a few of them must be in the last chance saloon, MGW in particular.

3.) 09 May 2021 11:30:26
I'm quite excited at the team selection today and for that reason alone I'm going 3-1 with fabio and pods on the sheet. Glad kilman getting a Starr and be interested in hoever performance. COYW.

4.) 09 May 2021 11:45:11
Well Nuno can't be accused of not giving players a go now, so I hope there's not going to be a witch hunt if we don't win by those who have been calling for experimentation.



25 Apr 2021 12:31:11
Getting roasted here. Burnley want it more than us. Shambles.


1.) 25 Apr 2021 12:32:59
Need to get some defenders on quick.

2.) 25 Apr 2021 12:45:58
Somebody tell willy which way we're playing.

3.) 25 Apr 2021 12:47:46
Spineless, toothless, weak. A shocking performance.

4.) 25 Apr 2021 12:48:45
This is I couldn't care less attitude and its a bad sign. most of these players are just not good enough.

5.) 25 Apr 2021 12:53:00
Jose playing his normal energetic game! We are absolutely disgraceful today. Coupled with the BBC coverage of replays, back of heads and ooh a drone shot, I am one who as my head in my hands wondering if I want to endure another 45minutes. How much are these guys paid to represent us? . No excuses they are shameful.

6.) 25 Apr 2021 13:21:42
God help us against Albion.

7.) 25 Apr 2021 13:42:56
I know the game hasn't ended yet but I have done my player ratings for Wolves and it is a uniform 1/ 10. In some cases, that is generous.

8.) 25 Apr 2021 13:54:51
Well played Burnley best team won today, how we need that sort of effort.

Again, Old Wulf, you think Grealish "flatters to deceive", guess a lot of prem lge managers are easily deceived then. Silly men, eh? Think Ake, C. Wilson, R. Fraser, J. Lewis, Buenida, Cantwell are a few who will be on a lot of managers' wish lists if worst happens. Just my opinion mind.

Ok, guys, going to throw one in the mix here. I think Graham Potter, on his budget, has done an excellent job at Brighton. Probably not fashionable, but plays nice attacking football. Thoughts?
