Reported that the club have tabled a bid of £12M for Osayi Samuel.


1.) 26 Apr 2024 13:30:33
Certainly would fill a position I believe we need to upgrade.



27 Dec 2023 09:11:02
Mohamod Amoura is currently being touted by various football press outlets as a player of interest for Wolves. Had a quick look and I like what I see, reminds me of Jota. Let's hope we can pay the £10M transfer fee.


1.) 30 Dec 2023 09:50:52
Not a striker. 5’6”” and everything I have seen is him cutting in off the wing. Victoria Plitzen centre forward has opted for Eintracht So that is one less option. Guirassy is being scouted by Manchester United and is probably too expensive. Given our budget constraints it is either a loan or someone nearing their contract end: Che Adams. Not convinced that he is what we need.



28 Aug 2023 13:17:33
Apparently Wolves have submitted a bid of 15M for Bellegarde, Strasborg midfielder. Nunes replacement?


1.) 28 Aug 2023 15:25:25
Yeah other clubs in for him as well though. If we could get him, Elvadi and another but at midday City hadn't put in another bid according to E&S.

2.) 28 Aug 2023 16:27:33
Amongst many, Fabrizio Romano saying City have him and he wants to go (no surprise).
Nunes was an odd signing, as from Day 1 the rumours were that he had agreed to join us for one season only and would move on to a Top 6 side this year.
Sadly we didn't see the best of him, only the occasional glimpse. I am sure he will flourish at City.
Just hope the Invisible Man gets a decent price and also first refusal on a loan agreement for James McAtee (City will not sell, they rate him).
We are also linked with Kelechi Iheanacho, not a bad possibility.
Time to start running Wolves properly Mr Shi!

3.) 28 Aug 2023 16:35:19
Rumours starting to emerge that Nunes refusing to train and demanding a move!

Perhaps the way forward regarding VAR would be to create a petition for presentation to the FA and also the government, I'm sure that the majority of club supporters would get behind it which could give us hundreds of thousands signatures which could surely not go unheeded.
Power to the people once more.


1.) 26 Apr 2024 13:34:19
I think Derry, the issue is the 'not fit for purpose' operators.
I would keep the technology and replace the current incumbents with better quality, better trained personnel.

2.) 26 Apr 2024 17:14:23
Problem is Rugeley those personnel don't exist! People make out that VAR doesn't work because of poorly trained refs/cutting corners/cheap recruitment etc. Nothing could be further from the truth, we have one of the most comprehensive systems for training refs and we (almost certainly) have some of the best paid officials in the world of footy! Sorry but it's just not that simple. And it's also not corruption maybe unintentional bias at most!
I've got to be honest I've actually come to the point were I now think VAR just doesn't work for footy, that simple! We tried it and it wasn't to be. I would keep the goal line stuff and maybe this automated Offside (depending on how well it seems to work). As for the rest let's just go back to what we know works! Yes there will be some goals that shouldn't have counted and some bad decisions along the way but at least it will still be FOOTBALL! When a goal goes in I want to celebrate it again, not sit there like I'm waiting for a call from my doctor to hear if the news is good or bad!?
I increasingly dislike the sport I once loved cause I just don't recognise it anymore and I don't think I'm alone there? ??

3.) 26 Apr 2024 19:18:03
Love the doctor analagy, Bully's. For me, a major issue is that when ref's are called over to the monitor they always seem to change their original decision.I'd love to see the percentage stats but they always seem to bottle it when called over. Surely that's not how it should be because the vast majority of the decisions are subjective.

Maybe in the region of 60% or so would be reasonable but it seems to be very close to 100%.We therefore all know what's going to happen, the pantomime dame draws the imaginary television screen and we're stuffed yet again!

4.) 26 Apr 2024 19:29:22
I'm 100% with you bully's, as you say there'd still be the odd poor decision, always will be regardless, and maybe a 'free' lunch offered under some circumstances but at least we'd know at the time, enjoy the game and argue the toss in the pub, which for me was part of the whole experience.

Let offside be offside again not a toe or kneecap but when a player gets a definite advantage. I honestly believe that VAR is making refs poorer in that they don't apply the same levels of thought to their decisions because they've somebody to 'correct' them. (Ie. Totis goal at Liverpoolin cup wasn't given because nobody could decide due to lack of camera).

But yes it's getting increasingly sole destroying to see wonderful goals chalked off for minor indiscretions. Thinking as we did the other night that we'd equalised twice, on both occasion I couldn't celebrate for expecting VAR to find something.

5.) 26 Apr 2024 22:48:08
I agree with all the above I have just watched the QPR Leeds game and it was a pleasure to watch a game of football that wasn’t spoiled by very average referees (var) the 3rd goal would have been disallowed for a push on the defender before he jumped for the header but nobody said a word and just got on with it. That to me is what we should be watching not the pantomime we get in the prem

6.) 27 Apr 2024 10:56:48
My thoughts were always VAR in football would never work like in rugby as football always has to flow not this stop start stop start.

But its here and have no choice up to know and almost will never ever change.

I accept the rules are rules but hard to accept when VAR decisions are wrong agaisnt us.



02 Sep 2023 08:04:42
Phew, the window has closed and I think we have done quite well although time will tell how well.
Over to the manager now to introduce them to the squad and work out how to get the best out of each of them.
A stronger squad now that Nunes has gone and I am looking forward to seeing these new players out on the pitch at Molineux.


1.) 02 Sep 2023 09:51:20
Couldn't agree more with WolvesNutta below. It's been an excellent window. Ironically the striker we missed out on, Adams, would have been the least aspirational signing, compared to who we have signed. What you see is what you get with Adams, he's at his peak now. One rumour is that he had to extend his contract at Southampton before they would loan him to us, but contract negotiations broke down, putting the block on his move.

Some fans thought that the Nunes money wouldn't have been spent but they were wrong. With the block on the Adams signing we still have some powder dry for the next window.

2.) 02 Sep 2023 14:32:04
Good thread below re Nutta's post. I believe what infuriates on here is negativity just because of change. The club has been through a difficult time, and the owners have tried to address that. We have lost good players, some because of career timing, and one because his head was turned, some not a good fit. That happens in football, but we have some solid new players, and an existing squad that has talent. With a bit of luck, hard graft and our support the manager might just get a tune out of this group. Lots to look forward to, and give support to



01 Aug 2023 12:55:29
Would it be better for Wolves to cash in on Kilman to fund the purchase of Scott and Elvedi, ffp allowing?


1.) 01 Aug 2023 13:23:41
But it wouldn't fix the problem, to start the season with just two cb in the first team would be insane! Peeps seem to be forgetting that Elvedi was to replace a cb we've already sold, if we sell another then guess what even if we'd signed Elvedi we'd also need another one!

2.) 01 Aug 2023 13:23:43
Well it seems Scott is in advanced talks with Bournemouth. I would have thought we have enough (about 90m in sales to fund Elvedi assuming Scott wants to sign for Bournemouth based on him knowing the club and area).

3.) 01 Aug 2023 13:38:25
We do have Toti Bully.

4.) 01 Aug 2023 14:01:58
Quite right we do and he ended the season playing LB cause Lope was so unimpressed with his options there (options we've yet to improve). I have to be honest there's been a general feeling on here of 'this squad will be good enough as is' lately and whilst I (genuinely) admire the optimism I'm also not sure what it's based on?! This is the same team that let in 6 goals agaisnt Brighton and 4 goals against Leeds (at home)! This defence needs improving else we will struggle to stay above the bottom three it really is that simple for me. I fear it may be that simple for Lope as well, so I'm sure things are happening behind the scenes. The squad we had last season but minus Neves and plus Docs is not good enough I'm afraid, Lope May be good but there's only so many miracles even he can work!
I do get that your suggestion is a way to try and get round that Derry but (for me) Kilman is one of the last players we have left of proven Prem quality, if we sell him then I really fear for our squad and our chances of Lope walking. Can anyone honestly tell me that when they watch JLs interviews every part of his body language doesn't scream of a man applying for just about every other job out there right now?! I hope not but also would not be surprised to see him take a role elsewhere unless we sign a squad player soon!

5.) 01 Aug 2023 14:02:29
Four is the minimum requirement Derry so if Kilman goes we need two.

6.) 01 Aug 2023 16:35:29
Forget Scott, we won't be signing him-or anyone of any significance or worth tbh. I watched most of the Celtic game and there were large parts of the game where we had a lot of possession but once again either the final ball or the habit of delaying a split pass proved to be the Achilles heel-the miss by Nunes in the first half only served to demonstrate a real lack of firepower. Defensively, we were found wanting at times. Bueno was poor, and too many times the direct ball was easily played in behind Kilman and Dawson. I didn't see Silva come on play so I can't pass comment, but most of you reckon he did well. I worry if Hodge is seen as an answer, but let's give him a chance, I suppose. I really don't see Lopetegui lasting, ostensibly through choice-although he may not want to jeopardise his future at another club by simply walking out-we shall see.

7.) 01 Aug 2023 19:10:59
Don't worry QS, this is the season we'll get relegated. Then all the doomsdayers and nay sayers will be delighted.

8.) 01 Aug 2023 19:32:53
@QS - I’m worried if we see young Alex Scott as the answer —— he’s definitely one for the future but we need one for now ——I’d be doing my level best to get Adama back on the books for a season and I’d play the kid week in and out to run at defenders and pull them away from Fabio- we are in a real pickle lads and unless we sign a tried and tested goal scorer I can see only 1 result this year and that’s planning for championship - right now we have less firepower than last year (neves) so how are we going to cope, without his 5/6 goals we WOULD not have escaped relegation

9.) 01 Aug 2023 19:37:06
We are fishing in the wrong lakes for our talent in fact we may well have to pick up our rods and look for a pond instead. Having said this I think that the FFP will catch a few more out after this season and level up the playing field (except for the ones where FFP is not relevant) #topsix ———there needs to be a more fair and realistic balance towards spending as the big just get bigger, the medium can only go backwards and the little can’t get a crumb —— the only way to success is to be bought by billionaires who want to play football manager, let’s hope one day we attract one

10.) 01 Aug 2023 19:40:07
It upsets me to see our great club struggling to pay for mediocre talent that should be screaming to play for us, the lad from West Ham has been begging his club to let him come for less than the 5mil they want, trouble is WH are looking thin on the ground and I get the feeling they are a little worried about spending that Declan Rice cash too soon, are they fearing the hand on the collar of FFP —-it can’t just be us can it!

11.) 01 Aug 2023 19:42:26
We all know that come the first home game at the Mol the faithful will all be there shouting and screaming COYW and wearing the new shirt and tapping the badge with pride and that’s right and that’s Old Gold Wolf Pack mentality - but let’s moan it out until then, then let’s get down to business

12.) 01 Aug 2023 20:36:48
I'm not saying we are doomed cause as I've ALWAYS said you can't judge a window till its over. Who knows what will happen, but I also do agree Mark that pinning all our hopes on an untried and untested 19 year old is a recipe for disaster! I think we would all feel a lot better about things even if we just got the Elvedi lad over the line! I also absolutely agree that Adama is suddenly looking a much better option than one less option (which is what the reality of losing him is with Chiquinho out on loan now)
As I've always said if Lope is still here and happy at the end of this window then I suspect we will all be happy too. Let's just hope that's the case, COYW ?

13.) 02 Aug 2023 09:08:36
Arddunby1. 90m sales is not 90m profit.As a player is sold the amount in the b/s for contract not expensed has to be written off leaving a much smaller profit figure. Then we need to keep money back to balance the books. Don't think we have much to play with.

14.) 02 Aug 2023 09:47:17
Pete exactly why I used the term sales, If reports are correct the club lost another 80m that has yet to be officially reported in addition to the reported 3 year loss of 152m. But I would think one none free signing is within our reach.

15.) 02 Aug 2023 10:16:04
Got you. We appear to be in poor state financially.



13 Jul 2023 09:39:24
RAN interesting Nice, another one out of the door?


1.) 13 Jul 2023 10:58:04
Apparently so derry and fabio to lazio. Jonni likely to go on Doherty arrival which imminent. We've dropped out of chasing Alex Scott as well according to the clickbaits. When something happens to justify the reports I'll start giving them more thought.

2.) 13 Jul 2023 12:07:30
From the E&S "Wolves not currently considering Rayan Ait-Nouri departure"

3.) 13 Jul 2023 13:59:44
For me Debbie, that is good to hear.I rate him.
What I do want to hear is Silva, Semedo and Guedes have found new homes and we get back some of the wasted £80+ million spent by Shi and Sellers.
Apparently Wolves want £20million Silva, they will be lucky!

4.) 14 Jul 2023 06:51:41
I read lopetegui has been playing/training ait nouri left wing.
It gives an excellent option imo.

With our goals for obviously/crucially needs addressing surely there are seeds been sown to start wetting our lips of hope with lopetegui and his staff to get us playing well creating and scoring goals.

Personally I can't think of anything but trust and positivity with lopetegui at the helm.
I forget all the woes of last season and look ahead with confidence.

With fosun how and who's been put in charge previously has gone water under the bridge.
It hasn't killed us we remain and will be fresh a revamped squad rivigerated (spelling?) Players all singing off the same hymn sheet.
Signings will come I believe sooner rather than later and hopefully the wolfpack will see some good attacking defending football this coming season.

5.) 14 Jul 2023 06:58:13
I'm not knocking or not thinking of the understandable concerns of the pack I just being how I am.
Have good day and up the mighty wolves.

6.) 14 Jul 2023 07:57:21
I think players singing off the same sheet is the key Phil. Get the squad into a team who are playing for each other and more importantly for Wolverhampton wanderers. I maybe wrong but there was a 'individual' and 'simply do the job' attitude at times. Now neves moutininho and others from the old guard have gone we need a new "pack' mentality. JL with his squad meals etc is undoubtedly trying to form that bond. Let's hope the new look team will have it in them. Passion and desire will go a long way to a more successful season.

7.) 14 Jul 2023 08:34:20
Guedes should go on loan to rebuild his value.
Silva should be given a chance at this level with the current coach.
Semedo is a good player but if a high enough offer comes in, it is up to the coach and player to decide.

8.) 14 Jul 2023 08:45:21
I'd rather give Silva a shot this season if that's all we're getting. Or loan him out for a season and bring in some money from that if they can.



12 Jul 2023 14:55:35
Anybody out there brave enough to make a guess what our starting eleven might be for next season?


1.) 12 Jul 2023 15:31:53
Will we have enough players to field eleven?

2.) 12 Jul 2023 16:46:07
There's a special refund on season tickets next season if you take a pair of boots to each home game.

I'm sure it'll all be fine. There was always going to be more questions than answers after the end of the season until the 1st September.

3.) 12 Jul 2023 17:00:23
Well most criticised the recruitment in recent years (me included) with the general consensus being the squad needed rebuilding. One, because of players contracts coming to an end or some looking to move on and two, because for what ever reason performance levels had dropped off.

Well it started in January and it's moving on a pace now, so let's all hope JL lives up to the hype and Wolves back him to finish the job. I say Wolves because as we know under FFP the club has to pay for the transfers, not the owners Fosun. This is why the sales will usually precede the purchases as the club's income doesn't leave much wiggle room.

My only concern is when I hear names like Kilman mentioned but other than that Neves, Mouts, Costa and Adama were always going then there's the Silva's, Guedes, Sandersons, etc, who have been in doubt for a while now.

4.) 12 Jul 2023 20:13:44
It's a good point Long.
There have been plenty of dissenting voices over the past season or two, complaining that the squad isn't performing at the levels of previous seasons. The squad needed a reboot, and we are getting one. It's similar to the time when Nuno arrived and we went through a change.

Change is tough to take, in any walk of life, but change is exactly what we need right now, so for all of those dissenting voices of the present, just be patient!
Club finances are as tight as a gnats **** at the moment, so the club have to work efficiently.

A reboot season, hopefully missing out on relegation, is ahead of us and then after that, we step up again.
Patience fellow Wanderers, patience!

5.) 12 Jul 2023 20:28:15
Longmynd you are talking sense, but some here talk from emotion and no logic. Nothing to concern ourselves about just yet, those who have gone were a known factor. What is not yet known is who comes in, no change there. We will know when it happens.

6.) 13 Jul 2023 05:52:21
The problem lies in the clickbaits, if they were all to be true then kilman, beuno, sarabia, juminez, Sa, jonny, etc would be moving on without any replacements, in fairness replacement names abound on clicjbait too but its human nature to pick up on the negative. I'm the same, worrying we'll be left short. But step back from the emotional attachments and it's not so dire. Time will, as a lot have said, tell. We're equipped to put out a competitive team in general, maybe lacking abit but nothing is finalised yet. We trusted in nuno I think we've got to find our trust in JL.

7.) 13 Jul 2023 06:22:54
Morning Abbey agree ?
Trust in JL we'll be okey dokey we hope so.

8.) 13 Jul 2023 09:54:37
I too agree abbey, as it stands sa? Bentley RAN Bueno Toti Kilman Dawson Somedo Lembakisa? Hoever? Lamina Gomes Nunes Hodge Jordao Neto Serebia? Podence? Chiquinho Hwang Cunha Jimenez? Silva? And Kalajdzic the squad doesn't look that bad does it? Even if we lose the 6 with question marks 3 weren't playing regularly and bring in a GK maybe this Bono a CB maybe another RW and a Striker Dembele perhaps on a free all of which I think is feasible I think we'd be ok what does everyone else think?

Hopefully it will gain significant backing and we can finally see it binned. Unfortunately it will probably continue in some form or other and only a nationwide protest by fans, the paying customer will force their hand. Empty grounds would send a significant financial message that could not be ignored.

The current run of poor results has been, in large part, to the injuries to key first team players, Neto, Cunha, Hwang, Ait Nouri etc. Considering the probable interest in these players from certain teams we could be in the situation of starting next season with a far less competitive squad than we have now. Sure, the money can be reinvested but will we get comparable quality. If not we could be struggling. Fosun need to understand that we really don't need to be a feeder club, keep our best and add some extra quality.

Any additions to the squad will almost certainly be, in some respect, dictated by which of our players are cherry picked by the money clubs. Neto, Cunha, Gomes, Sa etc will all be difficult to replace and it won't be cheap to bring in quality replacements. Hopefully the club have identified their targets and move quickly to get them in and allow GON time to mould the new group.
