Patricio gone. Thanks for the memories and good luck at Roma.

Jas M

1.) 13 Jul 2021 21:54:04
Agree Jas M, oddly enough Roma are the team I choose to attend games at over here so may see him in action again soon.
Served us well and actually improved as time went on too, most noticeably his kicking.

2.) 13 Jul 2021 22:00:44
surprised Sa hasn't been announced yet. Agree though Jas thanks Rui and good luck.

3.) 13 Jul 2021 22:07:31
Sa is being announced in the next 48 hours.

4.) 14 Jul 2021 04:34:10
TY Rui! been an amazing three seasons.

5.) 14 Jul 2021 06:08:06
All the best in Rome Rui Patricio and thankyou for all yoy done for us.

6.) 14 Jul 2021 07:12:46
Very lucky to of had him at wolves, new manager comes in though doesn’t offer new contract, decent money for a 33 year old, we move on.

7.) 14 Jul 2021 09:21:45
Tibbsy - if we got just over £10m it is v decent money and will represent quite a large, over £5m, profit on his ammortised value - great for FFP!
Also if Sa is as good as we are told £6.8m looks a v good deal and if he is also offered a 4 year deal with only cost us £1.7m a year cf Rui's £4.5m.
Dont know what salary they are offering Sa but remember Rui was on just over £5m pa.
It is highly likely we are making a big saving there as well - again a plus for FFP.
All in all pretty good work - although only of course if he is as good as we are told and at least as good as last year's Rui (which will probably be better than this years to be honest due to father time! ) .
Odd deal by Mourinho but he made a mess of Doherty's deal as well buying him cheap but then playing him out of position and finding out he can only play one way - and not the way he, Mourinho wanted!

8.) 14 Jul 2021 09:27:01
Moved from Wolves to Wolves.

9.) 14 Jul 2021 15:49:15
Good deal all around I thought!



03 Jul 2021 00:44:03
Andros Townsend is free, available, experienced and still only 29 years old. Worth a punt surely.

Also heard from a Spurs fan that the rumour doing the rounds is that Nuno wants Fabio Silva and that Nuno personally told Shi to sign him.

Jas M

1.) 03 Jul 2021 08:01:37
Palace have released a lot of players - most probably too old and not good enough - but for stopgaps, such as during AFN, several of them might have some value.
Not sure WF is a priority (depends on our resources ie how many can we sign) but Townsend along with Van Anholt and maybe in extremis even Cahill ( 35 but still solid as a back up RCB? ) might be worth looking at depending on the money they want and the other options we have available?

2.) 03 Jul 2021 09:51:58
Not for me guys, lots of names being linked, as usual, could well be a totally different starting eleven for first game, coyw.

3.) 03 Jul 2021 10:28:42
Jas, it seemed clear that Jeff owned up to buying Silva and that it was 'imposed' on Nuno. But if Nuno makes a bid for him now I will think again. One thing for sure, if Silva is a hit this season, everyone and the dog and the tea lady will say they wanted him!

4.) 03 Jul 2021 11:24:17
Deep I'll even admit it was me told Jeff to go get him!
By the way my eldest son Spurs fan just laughed at that, they have needs but he's not one of them I'm told!

5.) 03 Jul 2021 12:37:34
I suppose everything that's gone wrong will ultimately be Jeff Shi fault then considering it is he who signs the cheques. I mean, it doesn't matter if Nuno said 'I want x player' and Shi signed him but he was a flop, no blame on the manager just on the guy who signs the cheques eh?

Roderick Miranda, Ofusu-Ayeh, Cutrone, Vallejo to name but a few.

6.) 03 Jul 2021 18:09:28
Jas no one has said that Nuno was perfect, I certainly haven't. It was about one instance where the money at that time could have been better spent. As I've already said Silva right player wrong time. Its over done with. Let's hope this year for Lage we get what we need.

7.) 03 Jul 2021 18:31:52
Townsend isn't a bad shout tbf plenty of experience and youngsters can learn a lot from him.

8.) 03 Jul 2021 18:37:57
Van Aanholt would be the one i'd go for on a free, with Jonny out and marcal not reliable with fitness he'd be a great option along side ait nouri.

9.) 04 Jul 2021 05:53:41
Van Aanholt would be a good sshout.



25 May 2021 09:46:10
Media reports saying Ruben Neves will be sold for £35m.

Jas M

1.) 25 May 2021 10:07:31
And so it begins. How to turn a premier league club into the baggies. Boxing boing. Fosun out.

2.) 25 May 2021 10:20:03
Surely you would wait for a new manger to assess the squad and see who he wants/ how he wants to play etc etc before making major moves? Although if the rumour that we have to sell before we can do anything is correct and the "new " manager is known and has agreed on the strategy (well he won't becone the manager unless he does! ) then Neves is one of the two saleable (for any sort of significant fee) players in the squad.
If tragically that is the way we have to go then at least he is replaceable - although it won't be easy to put it mildly - but the other one, Traore, is a one off - certainly for Wolves - and players of his calibre won't be joining Wolves again for the foreseeable future.

3.) 25 May 2021 10:22:19
I feared this would be the case but fingers crossed nothing will be done until new man in charge there are 4 interviews for the job the top brass are doing so 4 people up for it not just (BRUNO) but fosun will not rush and will be the best man for the job.

4.) 25 May 2021 11:22:15
I don't believe this at all. 35m for Neves? not a realistic figure. All guesswork until the new manager is confirmed.

5.) 25 May 2021 11:53:30
Yep utter crap if we were to sell him it would be over 50 mill, but window is shut anyway.

6.) 25 May 2021 12:20:03
I've been told this morning that his house in wolverhampton is empty, and so is Patricio's.
Not told where Neves is going but definitely Patricio to Roma.
This has come off a mate who knows some of the ground staff at the molineux.

7.) 25 May 2021 12:27:28
That article was started by spiers to get more clicks.

8.) 25 May 2021 12:34:36
Hold your horses everyone. We were told on good authority a few weeks ago that Nuno was going to Villa. That's how much rubbish there is out there on the click bait sites.

I think the BBC is different. BBC just reported that Bruno Lage is in England for talks with Wolves. Realistically Wolves will have a short list of candidates. Until a new coach is appointed, talk about incoming/ outgoing players will be just talk.

9.) 25 May 2021 12:58:43
Big cheese sure he wasn’t up a tree outside Compton.

10.) 25 May 2021 13:15:32
Nuno seems to be going to porto seems like he has had enough of not seeing family for over a year I hope that is true and he doesn't take a job in England as that would be awkward for fans that see him as the saviour and I personally don't want to be booing him if he takes the (spurs job which from articles seems levy does not want him anyway) I personally wish him the best of luck just as long as he didn't take our players.

11.) 25 May 2021 13:38:20
Not unless the member of the ground staff was up it.
My mate was saying that the groundsman in question looked after the garden's at Neves and Patricio's house's, and that he was saying both are now empty.

12.) 25 May 2021 14:09:45
My mate who is a pilot said neves had jetted of to Portugal to see his wife and baby.

13.) 25 May 2021 15:34:32
My mate is a welder, he has no real update on potential transfers :)

14.) 25 May 2021 15:57:43
My mates a bin man and he says its nothing but its rubbish.

15.) 25 May 2021 16:58:53
I'm Brian! my wife is too!

16.) 25 May 2021 18:48:06
My mate mate who is the groundsman at Molineux which needs to be maintained to be at its best is also the land scape garden at Patricio's and Neves's house. And it is empty in a day. Bloody hell these wags don't hoard clutter these days. 😂.

17.) 25 May 2021 19:03:33
The club have already clarified that he may sold (so likely) but it would be for upwards of £45m+. To be honest if we can get that for him then it's good business. There's a reason we've bought someone in to market players and it ain't so we can flog um down the local market on the cheap! 👍.

18.) 25 May 2021 19:18:59
Good point Bully.

19.) 26 May 2021 06:56:14
Rumour today Nerves to Utd Lingard to Wolves. May have legs can see the logic should have had him in January frankly! I think we've had success with players from Warrington in the past have we not!

20.) 26 May 2021 09:26:43
Ken we have indeed!
Much as I like Neves I would be amazed if we could get a straight swap. A def midfielder coming off a pretty average seaon - albeit for good reaons for an attacking mid who played out of his skin scoring and making goals for fun.
Plus as BB correctly notes Lingard would normally have a home grown premium on him.
Also can't see why he would want to come here - I doubt we pay the wages WH would and let's be honest he will have lot of options and as of today a fair few of them including WH look a lot more attrative than a rebuilding (to put it politlely) club that seemingly has lot it identity, manager and way.
If I was him I'd be waiting to see who the new manager was and also what else we did in the market place - you hardly want to be the "token" tranfer for a club with a differnt time line to your career - he is 28 fter all.

21.) 25 May 2021 20:02:07
How can they be empty when they don't own the property, have they pinched all the stuff.

22.) 26 May 2021 11:53:45
Their houses are probably empty due to the fact they've gone for a short break to see their families in Portugal before the euros begin.

23.) 26 May 2021 11:59:44
thefutureisoldgold. I take your point regarding would he but the run he had out of the Utd team was down to his family circumstances. His mother passed away and he has taken responsibility for younger siblings. He not want to uproot them to far so needs to be considered. He's a Warrington lad and I actually saw him play as a kid. Both my lads played in Warrington junior football though it was my youngest who's in that age group. He still hangs around the local area. Not that we do anymore.

24.) 26 May 2021 13:37:51
Ken - Good point even today some players might not want to uproot their family permanently - told RLC won't leave London even for a loan!
Assuming neither Manchester side or Liverpool (might they? ) wants him we are probably competing with Everton, Leeds, Burnely and maybe Villa as "local" options.
Would be a great signing - as you say if we had taken him in Jan we probably would have finished several places further up the league and that would have more than paid his wages and any loan fee we might have had to pay.
If the price is £35m - the supposed price of Neves - i'd def use a chunk of whatever transfer budget we have on him.

25.) 26 May 2021 18:48:46
I love the old "my mate is ground staff at the Mol and he knows who is coming and going". Steve Bull is VP at wolves and he didn't know Nuno was going, so I doubt very much they tell the bloke that mows the grass lmao.

26.) 26 May 2021 18:49:37
Sorry but if lingard was any good, he would be in the first team playing for man u. The same with jota, didn't take him long to fit in at Liverpool, and the same will happen with neves, play him further up front and you have a world class player, he's been spoilt down here playing him closely to the defence. Only my opinion though. I'm sure when he's at man u, you will see where he plays. Lingard. Your having a laugh.

27.) 27 May 2021 12:39:36
I am on hugging terms with the tree at Compton and he says nobody has been climbing him but he did see a bald bloke in his 40s being shown around who speaks French and Spanish.

28.) 27 May 2021 15:47:56
Demon - I accept he is no Bruno Fernandes but if you can buy a player who would massively improve our side - well he tore it apart when we played against WH - for £35m then its a no brainer. We paid £35m for Silva who wouldn't get into Man U's under 23 team. The gap between good enough for Man U and us didn't seem so wide two years ago but now how many of our team, the one that lost to their u23s last week, would make it into their first 11- Traore and well maybe Neves?
Lingard obviously isn't good enough for their team or as you say he would be in it but that doesn't mean he wouldn't be a star in ours or indeed WH'S (well he was! ) or in fact most of the teams in the Prem. A few hundred million a year for the last 20+ year means there tends to be a bit of a gap between Man U and most of the other sides in the league. For us, especially since we went backwards so spectacularly last season, its wide enough for a player to be "not good enough" for Man U but still be "a star" for Wolves.
Not a nice read but sadly it is the reality of a world where they can spend hundreds of millions of pounds a year more than we can on players both in tranfers and wages.
It just makes the job Nuno did look so good and perhaps the job various Man U managers did before Ole look so bad!
ps of course Neves would look better at Man U, (as Jota does at Liverpool), all our player would - surrounded by better player and with the support and backing of the ref it would be hard not to?

29.) 28 May 2021 08:59:54
Goes without saying I mean Bayern have just signed a Reading player.



26 Apr 2021 09:59:56
I know I said I'd be taking a break from this site but I've just had a conversation with someone who claims to have inside information. I don't believe this myself but I do know that they know an ex director at the club, albeit when Steve Morgan was the owner.

They have heard that Nuno will be leaving the club at the end of the season. He is not being sacked, but is likely to take the Portugal job as Fernando Santos is intending to vacate the post.

As well as Nuno leaving, Boly is considering a move to Italy. Neves to Juventus, Moutinho to Porto as player coach. Traore to the highest bidder and Semedo going to a Champions League team, possibly from Italy.

Gattuso has been approached to become manager but failing that Mourinho will take over and be handed a war chest of £100m plus money from player sales but is reluctant at this stage.

Ait Nouri, Vitinha and Jose Will not be signed permanently.

As I said, this has come from someone else so don't shoot the messenger.

Jas M

1.) 26 Apr 2021 10:34:40
See I can believe all of that Jas, would certainly explain a few things. However, I think that Portugal job is as good as Jose's! I love Nuno but the reality is that Jose has a bigger trophy cabinet and as such I suspect would be first choice for the job! I honestly think when you see how other Portuguese managers are doing elsewhere I'm just not sure I believe Nuno would do much other than make up the numbers at interview (this season especially)?! Also Juve have been telling the world all week that they are bankrupt so I'd be surprised if they suddenly find £40m for Rueben?! Like I say though who knows these days, all those mentioned are certainly performing like they've already gone on holiday! 😂😭.

2.) 26 Apr 2021 10:51:09
BullysBoy II - remember when Arsenal (think it was last season, maybe the one before? ) said they had no money but spent heavily on recruitment? - Juve could be hiding in plain sight. Just a thought.

As a footnote: I'd be sad to see Nuno going - he's done so much for Wolves. And I don't want to see him go, I'd rather see him making progress.

3.) 26 Apr 2021 11:20:30
Debbie- the difference is that Arsenal have been run on a steady footing and are well versed in the art of bluffing/ negotiation. Juve on the other hand were projecting loses of around £600m by the end of this season! I get your point Debs but there's hiding and there's hiding 👍.

4.) 26 Apr 2021 11:20:53
I think Juve are looking to offload Ronaldo to free up some money.

5.) 26 Apr 2021 11:27:52
Well that explains a great deal Jas and let's not kid ourselves that a chain of events like that has happened overnight. Moves to that extent will have been in place or building up since the close of the transfer window. No one getting injured explains a lot.

PS thanks Villa only Fulham can potentially finish above us now.

6.) 26 Apr 2021 11:29:37
Meant to say not keen on Mourinho but not got a totally closed mind about the idea.

7.) 26 Apr 2021 12:31:19
Be fools imo to not sign Vinthia imo ok it's £18million but there is negotiating room so could possibly get him for £14million plus a sell on clause, similar with RAN imo.
Thankyou for posting this Jas M it strengthens what i've been saying I think Nuno will go on his own accord at end of season.
I'm surprisedanyone would want our players after their stinking attitude yesterday.

8.) 26 Apr 2021 12:56:03
We're all grossly speculating here, but Mourinho? he's in it for himself. His tactics at Utd. and Spurs have both been awful. Dire football. Plus Wolves cannot even defend, so he'd have zero game plan.

9.) 27 Apr 2021 13:39:01
Thanks Jas M. Very interesting I think Nuno is the ideal sort of manager for a national team. He has integrity and is a gentleman. National teams need higher standards. Mourinho by contrast is too much of an oddball and is probably a narcissist, more suited to club football. He could start an argument in an empty room. Mind you, I would take Mourinho at Wolves. Moutinho leaving would be no surprise, his next move is probably into playing/ coaching anyway.

10.) 27 Apr 2021 14:57:56
I personally don't think nuno is going anywhere but I think some of the player's will be gone. there's only a possibility of vitinha staying but there certainly needs a clear out. Apart from injuries and whatever you think of nuno he has been let down badly by so. e of these player's imo. Mgw would be 1st out for me. he's broken club rules twice as we know and that shows no respect to club or manager and I'm not accepting he's only young us so are the under 23s. Some players like grealish get away with it cus they hold the ace card as to say sell me then and we have seen what villa are like without him. mgw is not in the same class so let him go. There's other's I know.

11.) 27 Apr 2021 18:34:25
Some of the others Lexluna apparently include departed players such as Bennett, Barry Douglas and Benik Afobe. MGW probably is still around as our squad depth in quality is so dire. MGW has regressed as a player however, so he's only just hanging on. Nuno or no Nuno next season, MGW will be loaned or sold.



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.

Jas M

1.) 16 Nov 2020 07:25:00
May as well start chucking ridiculous price tags on players under contract till 2025.

2.) 16 Nov 2020 14:49:33
I have.

3.) 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?

26 Nov 2021 21:48:49
Just read Mark Lawrensons predictions. He seems to think that Wolves lack consistency. So 5 wins, 1 draw and 1 defeat in the last 7 games is inconsistent. The guy really is an a**hole.

Jas M

1.) 26 Nov 2021 22:18:06
Jas an a***hole is very useful a Lawrenson prediction is not! I don't think he gets very many of our matches right, though I can't say i'm any better tbh.

2.) 26 Nov 2021 23:08:17
Most of the pundits are Jas. Too lazy to do any proper research before they comment. All experts on Liverpool, Manchester and London clubs mind you. The fact that Wolves are one of the top form teams in the Prem is lost on them.

3.) 27 Nov 2021 11:07:44
It’s like when carragher always says we are a counter attacking team.

4.) 27 Nov 2021 11:49:15
Alan Shearer is about one of the only pundits who is capable of giving an unbiased opinion on Wolves. The others don't seem to have the slightest clue about any club that isn't Man Utd or Liverpool.

5.) 27 Nov 2021 13:19:35
To be fair, Gary Lineker is unbiased too.



20 Nov 2021 18:00:34
I might be being a bit biased here but I honestly cannot think of a better English CB currently playing better than Max Kilman.

Jas M

1.) 20 Nov 2021 18:11:58
I don't think you're being biased at all Jas. He certainly deserves a run in an England shirt.

2.) 20 Nov 2021 19:07:29
Your dead right boys, compare him to Maguire who would you rather have in your England side?. He could play more games than the superb Ron Flowers

3.) 20 Nov 2021 19:13:17
Jas he's been outstanding very much all season except perhaps in the games where they were all poor. His on field relationship with Semedo gets better and better. Today I thought they were excellent as a team.

4.) 20 Nov 2021 20:09:26
Semedo is another player who is getting better each game.

5.) 20 Nov 2021 20:20:47
Agreed Jas, he seems to have come on under Bruno, or Bruno is utilising his ability more. Either way, it’s only a good thing as he took a lot of flack last season.

6.) 20 Nov 2021 20:31:08
Agree Jas semedo looks more and more quality along with Kilman.
Think podence is a cracking player when he has the ball also podence movement off the ball is quality.

Was it our first clean sheet this season?

7.) 20 Nov 2021 20:37:44
Defensively only 4 sides have conceded fewer goals so far and Kilman has been a huge part of that and that's with Mosquero and Boly out, many posters on here were arguing that they were our best 2 defenders at the start of the season. I think TFIOG said in a previous post that the season was on a knife edge and could go either way, well today was a good step in the right direction. If we can maintain the defensive solidarity then the last 7 games of the first half will be critical, 13 points or close to it would be an excellent hall, up to 9 from Burnley, Brighton and Norwich and optimistically 4 from Chelsea, Arsenal, City and Liverpool would set us up nicely for the 2nd half of the season. However let's not get carried away things could easily go wrong with a few injuries and bad decisions against us.

8.) 21 Nov 2021 01:05:37
Your not being biased Jas, he was superb today! He just looked in control the whole game and kept a very good WHU front line in his pocket! If only he could have 'futsoled' that goal he SO dererved in! Make no mistake if he was doing what he IS doing for a top four club then he would have been in the last Eng team! ?



13 Nov 2021 14:02:39
The Villa fans are now claiming that Gerrard is the Messiah and that he will only leave for either the Liverpool job when Klopp leaves or the England job when Southgate goes.

Personally, I hope Villa get relegated and that Smith becomes Norwich manager and keeps them up at Villa's expense.

Jas M

1.) 13 Nov 2021 15:08:47
Villa will be a stepping stone for SG, just like Rangers was. He *will* leave once something better comes along.

I was on the Villa rumours site quite a lot during Villa’s managerial hunt and fudge me I thought some of our lot were deluded. Gerrard was shot down by most over there before he even got the job.

2.) 14 Nov 2021 10:53:55
Read that the Boggies are distinctly unchuffed with their NEW manager! Already? Wow! FWAW.



11 Nov 2021 11:59:35
And so it begins.

I work just around the corner from Villa Park and with a fair few Villa fans.

They are adamant that he is going to lead them to glory as he was such a great player.

I've reminded them that not all great players make great managers such as: Maradona, Pirlo, Keane, Ince, Scholes, Neville, Zola etc but for now I'll let them have their day in the sun.

Jas M

1.) 11 Nov 2021 13:28:51
Have a look at Villa’s next five fixtures. This will literally be the acid test for SG. A part of me wants him to succeed though, he was the consummate pro at Liverpool.

But I agree with your comment above about great players not making the transition to great managers. In fact average and less than average players seem to make better managers. That list is even longer.

2.) 11 Nov 2021 13:31:12
He'll be good for the foreign players in the team where like him English is a second language!

3.) 11 Nov 2021 14:14:31
You have my sympathy Jas working with that lot. They will be in full delusional overload that's for sure. Top 4 this season, win the League next, then the European Cup to follow.
But Gerrard is untested at this level and has Championship players throughout his squad, so we'll see.

4.) 11 Nov 2021 14:48:55
Work bluenose just showed me Stephen Gerrad club statement,

I always dreamed that one day I would become manager of a top English Premier league team but for know I will make do with the Villa.?

5.) 11 Nov 2021 14:58:31
Struggling to remember an old firm manager who has been hugely succesful in England. Stein, Mcghee, Lennon and Mcneil didn't set the world alight probably Walter Smith and maybe Souness were the most successful but not prolific. Ferguson of course managed Aberdeen and broke the duopoly for a few years.

6.) 11 Nov 2021 20:32:38
I think Gerrard is in for a huge wake up call tbh massive difference between the English premier league and Scottish premier league.
Apart from the big two in Scotland the Scottish premier is on same level as league 1.

7.) 12 Nov 2021 14:05:50
As we know, great players rarely make great managers. Glen Hoddle is just one example. My theory is that a great player who has become a manager is always dealing with players who are not as talented as he was. This makes it harder to coach and motivate the players as he probably doesn't understand their limitations.

One of our own falls into the great players not cutting it as a manager. Billy Wright at Ardenal. Think my memories are right.

I think you're correct Ron, many of Englands best didn't cut it as managers, not least Bobby's Charlton and Moore.

Moutinho booked for NOT touching Edouard. Looks like the ref us going to have a poor game

Yep and Gallagher not booked for his foul on Neves which should have been a booking.

2.) 06 Nov 2021 17:02:06
VAR again decide against us. But what a poor performance? Crying out for traore and a change up front but Bruno leaves it and leaves until its too late. We just weren't up for it and showed a lack ideas. Very disappointed tonight.

3.) 06 Nov 2021 17:09:25
Not wrong Jas he certainly did!

No complaints about the result today. Palace had a game plan to stifle our midfield and attackers and it worked. Graeme Scott on the other hand was poor with his decisions. Moutinho should not have been booked, Gallagher should have. Although the Ward foul was initially outside to area, the actual touch that felled Ait Nouri was inside the box and should have been a penalty according to the commentators.

5.) 06 Nov 2021 17:23:39
Spot on Jas. I think Bruno got a few things wrong today and probably didn't expect Palace to be as physical as they were, but it's easy to say on the back of a defeat. It's still been a good start to the season and we move on to the next one.

6.) 06 Nov 2021 17:32:47
The luck wasn’t on our side today, I agree the ref was poor. I also agree about traore being needed but even when he came on I didn’t see much of him although my battery ran out before the end so might have missed his cameo.

7.) 06 Nov 2021 17:51:15
We really weren't at the races today sadly. Watched the penalty decision many times I thought VAR could only overturn if it was a clear and obvious error! Clearly not the case at least the referee should have had a look, but in saying that he was poor anyway. Moutinho's booking was harsh at best. If that was a booking then Guehi who had already been booked could and should have had second when he punched ball away deliberately towards the end of the first half. Gallagher impressed I thought box to box like a terrier we could do with someone like that. On the balance of play they deserved the win 2-0 flattered them a bit tbh. Viera's doing a good job. As for us we regroup and come back strong I hope. As for putting Silva on in the 90th minute sorry didn't see the point of that.

VAR is in place to benefit the big 6 Ken mate.

9.) 06 Nov 2021 19:07:22
Rated if we'd been without it today! If only!

10.) 07 Nov 2021 12:20:52
For me it is time to use Mout as a sub, that said I never felt the players specifically lost this one.
It was lost in the tactics, Bruno got this one wrong, we were out played, no complaints Palace deserved the spoils.

Still of a mind to give Bruno more time due to glimpses of what might pass to be, first half against Everton, I sat there in awe simply wonderful to watch.

I don't think Tammy made an appearance for Chelsea that season so he could have joined us as we would have been the 3rd club he'd be registered with but only the 2nd club he actually played for.

I explained this last week. Fifa rules stipulate that a player can be registered with 3 clubs during a season but can only play for 2. As he made 2 appearances for Leipzig, he wouldn't be able to play for anyone other than us or Leipzig (if they recall him).

We have a deal in place with Leipzig so if another club wants to hijack the deal there are 3 options:

Leipzig pay us a termination compensation fee and then negotiate with the other club.

The other club pay us a compensation fee to step aside.

The other club negotiates directly with us so that we buy the player as per the loan agreement and then immediately sell him on to the other club.

However the fact remains that Hwang cannot play for any other team this season and we will get compensation if Leipzig go back on the loan agreement. Its a win win for us in every circumstance.

I too haven't seen too much of him this season but there must be a reason why he has only started 3 of the 15 games Porto have played. No goals, assists or big chances created during the 416 minutes he's been on the pitch.

The options available to Man City and Liverpool regarding Hwang Hee-Chan:
1: They can only negotiate with RB Leipzig at the end of the season but only if we don't take up the option to purchase the player.

2: Either team can pay us a compensation fee for us to 'step aside' so that the loan agreement can be terminated and they negotiate with his club in the summer.

3: Negotiate directly with Wolves in January so that we buy him earlier than agreed with RB Leipzig and agree a fee to sell him in the summer to either Man City or Liverpool.

However, the fact that a player can only play for 2 teams during a season means makes it highly unlikely that he will be joining either of them teams in January.

I can see both sides of the argument here. During Euro 2016, Sanches was a revelation and got a big move to Bayern Munich but couldn't replicate his form. Swansea was a disaster and the move to Lille has rekindled his career. If Bruno can get him adjusted to the pace of the PL, he could be an asset to us. There are many players in the PL who have come from France and some have adapted well, (Marcal and Ait-Nouri spring to mind) whereas some won't (Morgan Sansom). Hopefully we will loan him in order to see how he settles rather than buy him outright.

To be fair, Gary Lineker is unbiased too.

7th to 10th is a good season for me based on:

1: Performances last season and the incoming players so far this season.

2: Other clubs spending more than us.

3: Injuries to 2 of our key players (Neto and Jonny)

4: Lage only having a partial pre season due to the Euros to implement his tactics.

Semedo is another player who is getting better each game.

RIP Ron Flowers. I used to wag school in Birmingham and get the train to Wolverhampton every week and always went into his shop. He and Harry Parkes in Brum were the go to places for sports equipment. Me and my mates always used to ask him if he was Tim Flowers' dad. He was always happy to talk. True legend.
