Looks like Kurt Zouma has turned down an approach from Wolves. The good news is Lage is addressing the problems with defence.

Debbie McGee

1.) 10 Jul 2021 09:51:00
Shame as he is a good defender and a real goal threat at set pieces. Loads of premier league experience and only 26. If others are only looking at loans we might be able to get a change of heart by looking at a permanent deal. Showing faith in a player can make that all important difference.
May well be one of these deals that goes right to the wire. Not ideal but would rather Zouma than Tarkowski, who I thought showed some vulnerabilities in his game last year. Wear and tear taking its toll!


2.) 10 Jul 2021 11:23:21
For sure Wolfthistle.
I'd go for dunk and Zouma all day long. i'd also monitor Laporte at Man City. He had a great euros and Man city want to offload according to reports.
I don't rate Tarkowski. I think he has had good seasons but they have been near the bottom half for a few years now.
Id also keep an eye on Ben White. If its 50m for one of the most outstanding cb in english football he may be worth a massive punt. Not sure if Arsenal are serious. As I think we might find they just offer the lowest fee and then back out when its not accepted.


3.) 10 Jul 2021 13:17:42
Zouma? His loss not ours. We only want players who want to be at Wolves. End of conversation we can do better!


4.) 10 Jul 2021 13:30:59
If we were after Zouma, that shows sense and ambition. If he doesn't want to come its probably because he wants to stay in London. Any London team could do with him. He will have options.

{Ed002's Note - That is not the reason he is not interested in Wolves.}


5.) 10 Jul 2021 13:51:32
Intriguing Ed. Do tell.

{Ed002's Note - He has better options.}


6.) 10 Jul 2021 14:52:04
Deep whilst you should note Ed 002 is not a Wolves fan and therefore may not rate Wolves as a destination as highly a you do it is also fair to say that after last year we aren't as attractive as we were. A year ago we were the next cab off the rank euro 1/ 4s fa cup semis and 2 7ths but sadly not only did we move sharply backwards last year others WH, Leeds, Everton and even Villa moved sharply forward.
Add our v low wage structure and let's be honest the somewhat limited charms of living in Wolverhampton cf London, the south coast or indeed many other places not in England and it is not surprising that he may have better options.
This does present us with a serious issue. I know many won't want to hear it and will claim there are still weeks to go in the transfer window and we don't have to stress but the cold reality is that we do need to sign several "oven ready players" and getting the first one in is the hardest. Doing it early sends out a marker of our ambition and status as an "established" premier league team that a player can safely and happily join. It will therefore obviously make it far easier to attract the others.
Our problem is that the squad was not good enough last year - without the v impressive and unlikely to be repeated 17 points from the first 10 games before Jimenez was injured, [we have no real idea if he will ever return to the level he was physically or mentally], we would have been in serious difficulties.
Since then the squad has got markedly weaker - Otto re injured, Neto injured, Moutinho and Patricio one year further beyond their prime, Boly and Saiss AFN bound to name but some of our issues.
So signing a few unproven kids, which is all we have done so far this summer, is not going to persuade many that we have solved all of our problems and it is safe to sign for Wolves.
Ironically if we can just get a couple of genuine solid pros in we will be fine as there is still the skeleton of a strong squad there particulalry once/ if Jimenez, Otto and Neto return but at the moment this board seems to prefer to sell the remaining handful of stars we have Neves, Traore, Podence etc.
Just don't get it?


7.) 10 Jul 2021 15:40:00
Are you classing Trincao as an unproven kid?


8.) 10 Jul 2021 16:45:58
Jas M

I think what he meant by unproven kids is they aren't signings that will attract a experienced ready player, but we all know silva, trincao, vitinha, all are very talented.

The future
Yes I agree, we did have a lot of problems last season with injuries which made us finish past the mid table, and main reason players aren't tempted to join Wolves like Zouma is because this team has no UCL or UEL this year. Still time to get more signings on the team. I think we will be okay with another CB/ CM/ ST.


9.) 10 Jul 2021 16:50:12
Yes I am.
He has played a couple of half seasons at Braga and then was a squad player at Barcelona - he made 28 appearances in La Liga but his minutes played are equivalent to handful of full matches.
He is a v young player who has had injuries and is joining a totally different league - much more physical and faster whilst playing for a very different side - not all conquering favourites - but, let's be honest, a small unfavoured mid table or lower side.
He won't be getting the protection from the refs that he got in Barcelona or the benefits of having world class players all around him creating space and opportunities.
It is completely unfair to burden him with any sort of expectations as many did with Silva.
I am hopeful he will be great and will contribute over the year but it is madness to place that sort of pressure on him or to rely on him. He may stand up but he may fail - we don't know as he hasn't done it before here or in reality anywhere on a consistent basis. He may have potential and look great in highlight clips, (6 caps for Portugal are also a massive positive), but he is not an experienced and proven Prem league player.
The you can't win anything with kids mantra is not wrong just because 4 or 5 super stars of the UK game (Beckham, Neville, Giggs and Scholes) playing with some all time great like Schmiechel, Cantona, Keane and Irwin were so succesful.
If we had a v strong side he is potentially the cream on the cake but at the moment we don't need cream we need cake.
Absolutely nothing wrong with taking him on a sensibly structured loan deal but its not the final piece in our jigsaw or frankly even a major one. We need to be signing the oven ready players to ensure their is a base from which our young players can develop without crippling pressure - look what happended to Silva. Even Jose - who didn't pull up trees - helped deflect pressure from Silva and he looked much better in those later games!


10.) 10 Jul 2021 17:20:55
So what signing are fans looking for?
If we had a squad like this at the end of the summer I would say it is a step in thw right direction.
Sa
Dunk/ Tarkowski Coady Zouma/ another
Semedo Palinha Diawara Marcal
Podence
Trincao Raul
Bench
Ruddy
Boly
Vinicius
Silva
Donk
Ait nouri

To return Neto and Jonny.


11.) 10 Jul 2021 17:59:03
I can see everyone's point of view but the first thing we need to sort is the spine of the team. That's what got us up to 7th place, with that the rest will come together. Two or three first team regulars to follow who I assume will be Sa if Patricio goes and it will fall into place. I'm my opinion obviously.


12.) 10 Jul 2021 18:08:08
Madman - can I keep Neves and Traore instead of Diawara and Trincao/ Podence in first 11.
Strongly suspect though that the 2 news cbs will be v expensive as will Palinha so money might dictate that you have to sell them to fund the acquisitions. (Assume you have sold Saiss, Moutinho and Patricio as well as the aforementioned 2 plus some fringe players like Cutrone, Mir and Vinagre)
Would sacrifice Vinicius and Diawara if that helped keep Adama and Reuben.
Your team will be fine though and won't go down but might be a bit light on goals unless Trincao really is as good as his hype and Jimenez comes back flying.


13.) 10 Jul 2021 18:53:22
Yeah the future is old gold sell the players mentioned.
Can see us changing the dynamic of our midfield. Out of all the players we may lose I'd keep Neves. Maybe deals can still be done for a Sissoko or Kessie?
Traore is to hot and cold and not consistent enough. His deliveries can be poor. Unless he wants to stay as an impact sub.
He probably got us 10 points and lost us 10 points last season.
Id also argue we probably still need another lwb. Someone like Telles on loan would be good.
And an attacking midfielder like Goncalves or Olmo who we've had or been linked to under Nuno. Maybe Coutinho? 😉
I don't trust Podence consistently either. And see him as a squad player.


14.) 10 Jul 2021 19:36:24
Dont need to tell you my views on Traore.
If Marcal is fit he is solid defensively but seemingly gives you little going forwards so unless we can pick up a free - like Van Anholt - or as you say a loan - like Telles - I wouldn't prioritise LB over a better CM/ AM - maybe your Coutinho (fear that might be a break too far)!


15.) 10 Jul 2021 20:31:04
Madman,

Telles would be a good option loan, but other players also worthy to look at are Dembele (Barca), and Perisic (Inter) . Both clubs are in some financial situations so I wouldn't see inquiring about a loan. Coutinho, last I heard about rumours is Barcelona is negotiating him at 21m taking a huge loss in profit.

I don't know what his demands on weekly wages would be, but worth a try in asking. And last I like your option of Goncalves at attackinf mf, but another option I really like is Kang-in Lee from Valencia. Such a phenomenal player and he's declined a contract extension that's up in 2022 so maybe cash and players like mir/ cutrone their way would open a nice trade?


16.) 10 Jul 2021 21:41:50
I mentioned Kang-in a few weeks ago, I think we should get him as a straight swap with Mir. He was valued then at 7-10m so should be possible. He has what we are looking for and is a good age.


17.) 11 Jul 2021 04:02:58
Ken68

Missed your post, but it’s a nice suggestion. I think his value might be around 20m now that a couple teams are interested but no serious bids have been launched. I would give up Mir and possibly cash if it were to bring Kang-in to the molineux.


18.) 11 Jul 2021 09:26:25
Siisenor

I agree I like all thw players mention. But as I've said before it maybe loans before we sign.

I do think the club really has to sell a project to some experienced players. The prohect shoukd be winning a domestic troohy and getting european football.

The obstacle around Coutinho is his salary and whether it is so much more than other players at the club. that's not forgettingn if everything went to plan with Coutinho and Raul wolves really would be looking up the table. Especially if some of the big teams falter.


19.) 11 Jul 2021 10:23:11
Madman - From the various websites I have seen his salary ranges from a modest (? ) £165k pa upwards to something crazy like £20m a year. That is 4 times what Moutinho and Patricio, who may be gone anyway earn - leaving Silva and Semedo as top earners at circa £4.5m pa.
Assuming the worst and he earns just over £400k a week a deal where we pay Barcelona £21m and him say £21m up front for a 3 year contract might mean he (if he accepts his salary has to plummet - which surely it must as no one will pay him £400k a week now will they? ) might be willing to play for similar money ie £5m a year. This means that over a 3 year contract he earns £15m + £21m = £36m or £12m pa, but as he has 2 years left on his Barcelona contract not sure he would as seemingly he makes £40m just by sitting still over next two years?
However if the worst case scenario is wrong and we take a midddle case this might well work
But can Wolves stump up just over £40m for a fee.
It would be a massive statement and if we just kept the rest of the side together and Jimenez comes back flying adding Coutinho alone may well mean we would be challenging to be a top 4 side. Ironically thise would mean that the money would rapidly flow back in.
If ony we hadn't wasted £70m on 2 over priced players last year.
Neves and Traore are too important to lose and Saiss, Patricio, Moutinho and the fringe playrs don't move the dial but perhaps we could sell Semedo - who isn't bad - for mid to high £20s and replace him with a cheap option even Hoever looked ok?
Really like the idea but strongly suspect he will, as Ed 002 will undoubtedly point out, sadly have much better options.


20.) 11 Jul 2021 10:43:58
Love all this banter about what the club should do and who they should buy and at what price.

I've just finished watching the Spurs documentary and in it, Daniel Levy who a lot of Spurs fans don't like gives an insight on how the transfer market works. Also the Sunderland doc is good as it looks at a club at a different end of the spectrum.

Well worth a watch.


21.) 11 Jul 2021 11:14:55
I understand what your saying the future is old gold. However I doubt the club want to keep all the team as it was last season anyway. a lot of players let us down.
For example if they keep Moutinho, they then have 3 players that can play that position (with Neves and Vitinha as it seems that will be finalised) that have cost the club 40m. Does Bruno want to play with a midfielder like those three?
I can see a lot of change in midfield. It was to predictable last season. No driving runs from midfield and fire from the midfielders. We missed Jonny and Jota on the fire front.
I don't think the club would be able to offload Semedo as he has a long contract. Plus its almost admitting we got it wrong trying to play possession based football.
Although we finished 12th with raul we would have finished higher. So don't look at Semedo and Silva as bad deals. They were deals that could be done during a C.V. Most top clubs held onto top players last season. Even last summer I didn't expect Silva, Vitinha, Hoever or Ait Nouri to play many games. I think they did okay for first season in the circumstances I didn't expect Silva to play 20 games let alone score 20 goals.
I also can't see bruno playing silva and Raul as they are similar. Silva is a young inexperienced raul. So that leaves the strike force to be sorted out.

Jas- your damn right mate. There so many different factors that turn players heads. From the missus knows her favourite shop isn't in the city. To the dog has no where to play. 😂 I just hope the club are selling a project that is achievable within 2 years. A trophy would entice players in more than europe maybe? Winning the prem and fa cup over the last 6 years has definitely helped Leicester attract young talent from across the world.


22.) 11 Jul 2021 12:53:58
Madman - I had assumed that Moutinho had gone and we didn't sign Vitnha. We obviously won't sign Coutinho ( I really don't think we have much if any chance of doing so even if we wanted to! ) and Vitnha.
Puts the putative cost of Vitnha and for that matter the actual cost of Silva into context though doesn't it. Silva doesn't cost that much less than the scenario above and whilst I don't know what wages we might offer Vitnha the suggested £20m fee is insane!
Agree we won't sell Semedo (as he is one of our better players and pefectly competent in his role) but he is probably the only major player we can afford to sell. I accept his contract, where he is overpaid on a multi year deal, will limit how much you'd get anyway.
Of course if Jimenez had remained fit we would have come much higher up but not sure your next statement follows though?
Indeed your next 2 paras pretty much confirm that the Silva deal at least was v v bad. You don't pay £35m and top top wages for a player you don't expect to contribute for 2 years if you are Wolves. That is well over 25% of our latest annual turnover. Look up what City, United, Chelsea etc etc would have to pay to represent 25% of their latest reported annual turnover (its well over £100m) and see if that sort of player would be expected to contribute?


23.) 11 Jul 2021 14:24:26
Your right as a fan it looks odd thefutureisoldgold. But remember no club has really took on the top 6 like Wolves have planned to under Fosun.

Fans need to differentiate between investing in players for the future and players ready for next season.

The first team squad of last season under performed regardless of injuries. Our forwards included Neto, Podence, Traore and Jose.
Vetween them they scored 10 goals. that's rubbish for Portugese and Spanish internationals.
Same goes for midfield not enough goals. Neves was the top scorer.

I'd class Trincao as experienced he has more games under his belt than Neto did when he arrived.

The non purchase of Vitinha and the possible sale of Neves and Moutinho would show Bruno wants a very different midfield. Although I would keep Neves.

There is no comparison between the purchase of Vitinha and Silva and a loan for Coutinho. Also throw in the mix Coutinho may have thought he had a better chance under Koeman last summer or did he go on loan to Bayern again. Emotions feelings and attitudes towards options move with times.


 

 

18 Jun 2021 08:58:29
According to Portuguese outfit UOL "Wolves are evaluating the possibility of signing former Chelsea and Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa, with the 32-year-old Spain forward available on a free transfer. "

And so it begins. being continually linked with the same players.

Debbie McGee

1.) 18 Jun 2021 11:38:26
Debbie I think this one is a mis-quote. Jeff Shi actually said I'm going to buy everyone a coffee not I'm going to buy Costa.
Seriously if you've got money to burn and you want to upset your opponents he's as good as anyone!


2.) 19 Jun 2021 13:47:03
ROLF I'm in stitches laughing that much Ken your a legend mate would absolutely love to be sat with you at a game I can imagine how much I would be laughing keep it up mate your posts at least makes me happy and I'm sure more feel the same.


3.) 19 Jun 2021 15:11:11
Gag I wasn't trying to be funny really. It was just to highlight the absurdity of press speculation it's the same every year. If they have nothing or they half hear something they fill a column with utter tripe. Anything to fill space in a newspaper to show how well or ill informed they actually are. We know from experience that Fosun do the business quietly and you find out when it's done.


 

 

17 Jun 2021 14:50:16
Confirmed: Wolves announce the signing of Yerson Mosquera on five-year deal.

Debbie McGee

1.) 17 Jun 2021 15:34:39
USEFUL. I do see Lage using Coady as a midfielder again if he can assemble a good back four. All a guess?


2.) 17 Jun 2021 16:15:33
Iwas thinking the same TBG Sevlow46.


3.) 17 Jun 2021 16:42:16
Wolves technical director Scott Sellars says that Bruno was involved in the Mosquera transfer. So far, one in, and none out! Mosquera has played as a striker in the past so he knows where the goal is.


4.) 17 Jun 2021 20:14:02
Well some if the clickbait sites are saying Benitez has authorised Everton to move for Connor Coady. Make of it what you want but I agree with other posters, a deep midfield role with the option of dropping into a back 3 if needed would suit Connor and increase his developmwnt as a player.


5.) 17 Jun 2021 20:43:50
Fosun will hold on to Connor. Surely he is the CROWN JEWELS for Wolves at present. Worth 150 million and plays with heart on sleeve. He is more than special!
Selling Connor would be such a retrograde step especially now as he will be a central part of remoulding the team. So in my opinion Fosun should say “on your bike Benny”.


6.) 17 Jun 2021 21:16:49
Selling Conor would be crazy for a new manager the Club Captain is the heart of the club and he's topclass in his role. Though anyone who wants to play a back three would love him in the middle.
I said afew weeks back Bruno could play him in front of the back four because he reads the game so well and his passing range is top notch but we wait and see. Every player has a price but to sell him now would be daft. But hey who knows!


7.) 17 Jun 2021 21:20:43
Agree Sevlow.


8.) 17 Jun 2021 21:44:12
Like you say Arddunby "clickbait sites". Last week Nuno had the Everton job and every player and their brother were going to Everton. Benitez hasn't even been named as Everton's new manager.


9.) 17 Jun 2021 21:48:06
150 million? Can I have some of what you are on Sevlow? He's an excellent captain but will never make a premier midfielder as some suggest. It was Nuno who turned him into a top sweeper from journeyman championship midfielder.


10.) 17 Jun 2021 23:04:43
Of course that figure was just a snub Old Wulf. Would you sell Connor for 50 million now and have Wolves demolished to rebuild?


11.) 18 Jun 2021 03:17:34
I'd take 50m for Coady in a heart beat.
I love his character and his heart. I also respect wholeheartedly what he has done for the club both as a a player, captain and a person. However I feel he has reached a limit like some of the other players in the squad. I can't see him being an integral part of the team that gains champions league football.
He was great in a back 3 but his sweeping diagonal passes were sussed out once we lost our effectiveness on the flanks.
He looks terrible in a back 4.and he lacks pace.
He isn't isn't quick or effective enough as a defensive midfielder and he needs time to allow him to effect games with his passing.
50m could bring an experienced head and more nous both in defence and midfield. To think you could have Ben White and Palhinha from the sale of Coady.


12.) 18 Jun 2021 07:15:04
White and Palhinha for £50m? If we could, I'd snap them up but haven't Brighton just rejected £40m from Arsenal saying they want £50m and Sporting want £30m for Palhinha.


13.) 18 Jun 2021 08:45:30
17m for Palhinha Jas. Selling Coady could help buy two very good prospects. Buying a younger English ball playing defender and an experienced ball winning midfielder.
It's the sort of signings that would show our intent. Put into the mix Vinagre is want by sporting it makes the deal even easier.


14.) 18 Jun 2021 09:50:41
Sporting are reported to be interested in Vinagre so if we are after Palhinha there is probably a deal to be done. Though its rare that players we are constantly linked with ever actually come to us. Fosun usually keep it very quiet.


15.) 18 Jun 2021 10:41:08
I thought the £17m price was last season and they now want £30m as he's had a very good season.


16.) 18 Jun 2021 14:06:29
Jas I thought it was 30m last year and had been reduced as he has less time on his contract. Ultimately Palhinha must want to play in prem as the rumours keep coming out. Maybe Wolves didn't want to pay 30m last summer.


17.) 18 Jun 2021 14:44:51
As much as I like Conor Coady there's no way on earth he's worth £150mil. Try a fifth of that. Say £30mil tops. He will stay at Wolves and do the same job for Bruno that he did for Nuno. No way would he go to Everton and the fans there would not like his Liverpool background.


18.) 18 Jun 2021 20:19:03
Deep I'd tend to agree with you re Coady valautions, although I certainly don't want to sell him!
However I was out with a die hard Leeds fan the other day and he was chatting about players he'd like from Wolves and there was only 2, Traore and Coady and he put a "value" of £60m on Coady!
Maybe we undervalue our own players?
Certainly it would appear we hugely underrate Traore who it seems is wanted by all the top sides in Europe and Leeds yet is considerd surplus to requirements by many Wolves fans - baffling as he is our best player by a distance!


19.) 19 Jun 2021 10:51:22
Future, I agree that Traore is our best player. I rate him north of £50mil. He's got speed and physicality, which Coady lacks.


 

 

11 Jun 2021 13:28:32
Rumour Roundup -

Outs: Ruben Vinagre (Sporting Lisbon)
Ruben Neves (Arsenal) Dion Sanderson "future will apparently be resolved 'shortly'" (Sunderland keen to sign)

In: Jose Sa (Olympiacos)

Debbie McGee

1.) 11 Jun 2021 14:09:38
Well it's going to be a tough ask to bring in replacements. Even if there is the money who is for sale?

Jose Sa seems good but being linked with some proper stinkers.

I am truly hoping we keep Neves cause we really shouldn't be entertaining less than £50m. If Arsenal want to pay that straight up then we will take it and buy a replacement. But the idea of him going for so little is scary. And even scarier to get AMN. guy doesn't want to be a defender. We have enough wingers surely.

We are also rumoured to be going for a young defender Lage apparently "admires"


2.) 11 Jun 2021 16:46:35
I would consider £20m plus AMN and Willock to be a fair deal for Neves.


3.) 11 Jun 2021 18:13:34
Agreed again Jas. I would take that.


4.) 11 Jun 2021 18:14:55
£15m and Willock and Amn I would take.


5.) 11 Jun 2021 23:09:42
The £40m that we’ll be aiming for (including add-ons to get somewhere near that figure), will be earmarked to be spent on Mendes’ clients. Let’s hope it’s the right ones and that we won’t be paying over the market price because you can be sure that Arsenal won’t be.


6.) 12 Jun 2021 03:31:49
Have Fosun gone bust or something?
They spent 60m last summer during the C.V. without Jota and Docs transfer fees.
I can see:
Jose Sa
Trincao
Alena
Vitinha permanent
Vinicius

Maybe some of Benfica old guard under Lage as well.
Gedson Fernandes
Pizzi
Renato Sanches
Leao

I think
Patricio, Traore. Semedo, Moutinho, Cutrone, Mir, Boly and Saiss will go.

And I think Vinagre will have a chance to claim left back.


7.) 12 Jun 2021 13:15:39
You forgot traore as well. He's going. Also netto will go to Everton in January.


8.) 12 Jun 2021 22:26:03
Demon you're a numpty mate.
I did mention Traore above.
Neto still has 3 years on contract. Same as Neves you do realise clubs would have to pay an awful amount for those players.
Players tend to leave with one year left. If the player says that want to leave that's different. As seen with Jota last season.
Fans forget any young player that leaves wolves means that Wolves will sell for three times they were purchased for. 45m for Neves and Jota isn't bad business at all. If we can win a trophy or sell for more like Leicester did for there players in recent years means we will close the gap on the top 4.


 

 

07 Jun 2021 14:34:34
Now for a rumour - Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers have once again been linked with a Portuguese star - this time, according to recent reports, the Midlands side are leading the hunt to sign Sporting Lisbon midfielder Joao Palhinha.

Debbie McGee

1.) 07 Jun 2021 16:35:18
We were linked last summer when the fee was much lower.


2.) 07 Jun 2021 17:52:41
Linked every window with him.


3.) 07 Jun 2021 18:00:31
Again lol.


4.) 07 Jun 2021 18:19:24
Villa don't seem to need to sell to raise the cash. These fosun I keep hearing they know what they are doing. No I don't believe they do. Bruno will have to go out and get new players, and the ones which are left are going to have to play the way he wants. Nope big Sam by February to try and keep us up.


5.) 07 Jun 2021 20:01:54
Bit more trolling from demon. I was wondering who he supported, it’s now clear he supports Villa. Trolls always let their masks slip off.

Cant beat a bit of optimism can you.


7.) 07 Jun 2021 21:18:14
I don't think Demon is a fan of any team tbh Debs just tends to talk nonsence take no notice off him.

Demon may be a troll but, does beg the question if Villa are able to shell out without selling why are we having to sell to purchase?
But, everything else is nonsense.
I like the idea of Bruno Lage, I’m so looking forward to seeing offensive football rather than sitting back defensive and try the counter all the time. I really hope some of our youngsters have the same impact as Joao Felix did for him at Benfica but, reading the rumours going on we’re selling the whole team!
It would be interesting if he could bring young Florentino Luis on loan looked good for Benfica but, hasn’t played much for Monaco on loan.
Would Benfica be willing to loan him out again?

Villa sold their stadium to help comply with FFP.


10.) 08 Jun 2021 05:11:56
demon sounds exactly like my windup bluenose foreman at work.
Full of ****.


11.) 08 Jun 2021 19:16:38
We currently have a HUGE task a head to completely re-create/ balance our entire squad, with that in mind why are people spending time worrying about Villas finances?!

It's entirely possible they have bought Buendia pre-emptively because they know that if Grealish has even a half decent Euros they can/ will sell him for double the money spent on Buendia?!

For some reason people are seeing one deal and trying to judge Villas entire balance sheet, just foolish! Just a thought but how about we let them worry about their finances and we can worry about our own eh?! 🐺.

Just watching the Belgium v Russia game, Dendonker plays so much better in the MF, I'm hoping Lage utilises Dendonker more in the DMF role.

He is a box to box and does a excellent job for both Belgium and us and at least he gives 110% when he puts shirt on for us I would think BRUNO ain't no mug and I think he will be better for a lot of players going forward more attacking and a few surprises in store onwards and upwards COYW.


2.) 13 Jun 2021 13:39:03
The children on here and social media need to stop the Dendonkey playground name calling.
He is a good player last season they all had a off season.


 

 

07 Jun 2021 09:14:30
So it is a given by most of us that some big-name players will leave. Is it great? probably not. However, this is also a chance to bring in fresh and much-needed players into the squad. This is my opinion will be the most crucial transfer window in Wolves' recent history.
If I'm to be totally honest I'm looking forward to seeing how things play out and fans back at Mol'.

Debbie McGee

1.) 07 Jun 2021 09:50:42
I agree but as you said very important window, this will make or break us!


2.) 07 Jun 2021 10:23:19
Indeed it is the most important for a long time.
Two questions.
1) Why are we now skint! {yes C.V. has hurt everyone badly but it in no way explains are seemingly potless position) Well we hugely overpaid for hopelessly inadequate players last summer. I hope people (the club) now realise that if the market place for players like Neves is £35m then untired kids who may never make it are not worth £20m a pop, (let alone £35m), but should be bought, as Liverpool just have done, for single digits with performance related add ons!
2) With Neto, Otto and Jimenez injured who apart from Neves and Traore can we sell for any sort of fee. Maybe Semedo but we'd probably take a loss, even on his amortisied fee, so that would hurt FFP!
How can a team that was on the verge of challenging for Champions league football 12 months ago be in this state?
Well time ticks on and many of our team have reached the point where their value and performance falls sharply and we stood still and failed to notice.
We had no injuries for 3 years and seemingly our luck ran out and we have had a series of serious injuries as well as lots of minor ones - perhpas related to that aging thing.
But most importantly we had a v v bad transfer window in the summer of 2020/ 21 and did nothing in Jan 21.
So yes it is the most important window for a long long time but given we have just lost our best manager for a long, long time and the chap who seemingly was in charge of transfers last summer will be in charge again, but this time with no money, it doesn't leave me with a lot of confidence.
What is true though is that our margin of safety has massively diminished and get it wrong again and the consequences will be v serious.


3.) 07 Jun 2021 10:43:59
our not are -sorry.


4.) 07 Jun 2021 10:58:55
Agree totally TFIOG, the transfer window last summer was a time to be savvy and creative and we weren’t.
Even the Ed on site here was saying play it cautiously and be mindful of FFP. It just feels like we have to buy Mendes clients and often pay a premium when other more cost-effective (and maybe better in a football sense) solutions are available. I don’t dismiss the benefit of Mendes, his contacts and clients but commercially and in a sporting sense, we have to be more than a one-trick pony.
What really bugs me is where I read that we have a gentleman’s agreement with Neves to allow him to join a big team if they’re interested. Are we going to allow Neves to sign for a direct competitor, presumably at under a proper market value just because he wants to leave and sign for that club (we can’t have another Doherty-type deal)?


5.) 07 Jun 2021 11:09:22
I genuinely think we have the players in youth, but obviously not with experience and savvy. Some shrewd experienced acquisitions could balance out the team, but, no mistake, next year's aim is going to be survival if neves traore etc exodus.
I think I said before we've gone 1 to 3 back to 2 and now find ourselves at base camp 1. We really have to look 2 seasons ahead for challenges again. Hope I'm wrong and fosun pull it out the bag again. Silence over Lage is worrying me abit too.


6.) 07 Jun 2021 11:45:38
No one says we're skint. We have to be more cautious with our spending as all clubs incomes were down. This does not mean we are broke. Player prices will be down, not because they are getting worse but because the market has dictated thus. A prime example being Jadon Sancho. Last year valued at £130m, now available for approx £70m.


7.) 07 Jun 2021 11:49:22
I have high hope for wolves and bruno Lage, you know new manager new system/ style along with fosun getting the transfer window right.
BUT I have even less hope than I had for England in the euros.
A guy at work asked me who do you think is the worst team,
Wolves
Birmingham or
England?
Lol it was England all day.
Sorry greyleg I know you got high Hopes for us in the euros but I can see nothing but the same old same old, we get to play the top teams we will lose that's if we get out the group stage.
I hope I am wrong and I may be a little OTT being mondayish in this heat.
Up the wolves.
Come on England prove me wrong.
If England do get to the final I will have for the very first time a vindaloo chicken (dinner) curry winner winner lol.


8.) 07 Jun 2021 12:26:18
Respect your thoughts Phil,
But friendlys, especially last one where we should AV played more of the first starting eleven, are a bit of a pathfinder, as Gareth tried with some fringe players, but didn't get why he played out of squad players, but will stick to my guns and say we will have a great run. 👍👍.


9.) 07 Jun 2021 12:40:57
Sound mate I hope we go all the way.
👍👍👍.

@Ed001 As I recall you're a bit of a whizz in the understanding of FFP. Now that Norwich are back in the PL I read an article on how every PL club will be getting back £87m (I'm not 100% certain on the figure) . Can this money be spent on players?

Debbie McGee

{Ed002's Note - I really have no idea what you are referring to but clubs are not going to be given £87M.}


1.) 31 May 2021 14:39:55
There was suggestion that savings in parachute payments to Norwich Watford and Bournemouth (had they too had won promotion back to the prem) would have been shared out among the prem clubs. How true or how much I don't know.

{Ed002's Note - I see now. The EFL want that money for sharing between the EFL clubs because of the pandemic but the Premier League have said no. It won't be going to the Premier League clubs.}


2.) 31 May 2021 16:07:27
Thanks Ed.


 

 

21 May 2021 16:34:44
Anyone else find it odd the day Nuno (and the club) announce his stepping down, Adama Traore's contract talks resume?

On another note, New Manager:
I'm expecting the new manager to be given a decent war chest, now will this be financed by the selling of players? because the threadbare squad does need to be addressed.
Will the two on loan players (RAN and Vitinha) be offered contracts?
Will players out on loan be given a chance by the new manager?
Nuno leaving raises so many questions.

Debbie McGee

1.) 21 May 2021 20:19:48
I suspect it's just good PR Debs, a way for the club to say 'don't worry we are still moving forwards'. Contract talks are all well and good but they don't mean a lot till something is signed 👍.


 

 

04 May 2021 17:33:28
I don't know if any of you (and I'd assume most have) but Wolves shared a picture of Vitinha with the caption "Our Future"
Hopefully his loan deal will become a permanent one!

Debbie McGee

1.) 04 May 2021 18:30:42
Hope so £18million is a bargain for him, apparantly there is negotition room too so could get him cheaper.


2.) 04 May 2021 18:37:40
I haven't seen it deb but same as you would like him to be brought permanently.


3.) 04 May 2021 20:28:30
He showed last night what we've been missing, he is a must for the future no question.


4.) 05 May 2021 07:42:42
Yeah I would sign him, but only him out three loans, play him till end of season get him used to our style of play.

Funny how Neves is getting a bit of a slating, five seasons ago we couldn't have imagined a player of his magnitude here. I believe he was being played out of position by Nuno.

Cutrone has expressed his desire to "restart my {his} career" I would like to see him given a second chance in a different system under Lage.
