R. I. P Fred Davies.
Goalkeeper when I first started supporting Wolves. Respect and condolences to his friends and family.

Ken68

{Ed002's Note - Fred Davies was one of teh Wolves players that played for Los Angeles Wolves in the United Soccer Association. When I was a lot younger I did go and see my local side (Golden Gate Gales who were in reality Den Haag) play - this would be 1967.}

Interesting Ed. That sounds like the tournament Wolves went on to win under the moniker Los Angeles Wolves beating Aberdeen 6 -5 in the final.


2.) 03 Sep 2020 16:42:38
Ed002 yep, one of the many attempts to get soccerball! going in the states.


3.) 03 Sep 2020 17:49:49
If my memory serves me, a young Frank Munro was playing for Aberdeen in that 1967 final - playing midfield / inside forward at that point.


4.) 03 Sep 2020 19:31:56
I think you're correct on that one. What a fine player Frank Munro was! You wouldn't want to argue with him back then. Passed away about 10 years ago I think.

Not been on for a while, not been to well (not C.V. thankfully) .

Thefutureisoldgold and Phil. Enjoyed reading your posts about walking. Used to do loads of walks mainly in the Edale and Hope valleys until I fell and broke my hip (not smart) . Lovely walking country, try it you won't be disappointed!

Football well, I've watched loads of it. Yesterday a bit of a farce tbh. Felt sorry for Kilman so harsh especially after the linesman clearly waved it away and the ref for that matter. They seem to absolve themselves from any decisions until Stockley Park get involved, not just our game but all of them! The game is becoming a laughing stock. As to our performance, Rayan looked lost half the time Marcal should have played tbh he's not ready yet. Against Palace he was the same some of the time but Palace played so narrow he got away with it!
Hopefully Nuno can have a good think about what he's going to do to sort out because they are struggling to get Raul into the game maybe get Traore on from the start because it's becoming so predictable if we know when he's coming on so do they!
Anyway I'll shut up for now I could go on for hours! Let's enjoy the international break and see what happens then.

Another poster on here who sadly I've forgotten which one kindly gave me the website where I've watched all the games for free so I'll put it on its called hesgoal.com pretty good better than 15-00 a pop anyway!

Glad you are ok Ken and not got the c. v.
My post about a bad day today was more in jest. I am lucky I have my health unlike many who haven't.
Yes I agree Ken Traore should start next game and marcel in for ait nouri.
Walking in the country I am doing when the c. v. has gone. I love it Ken.
Work has been frantic today so won't be on here after this post tonight.
Will be asleep for 8 o'clock.
Sincerely hope you stay healthy Ken
Up the wolves.

Was also chatting with Les from Buxton and the two places you mention are both in the Peak district as well.
As I told him we had been to the area on holiday, (I only recalled Bakewell - the cake place! ), when I was a little boy. We stayed with friends of my dad in a place called Glapwell, near Clay Cross. I Spoke to my mother about it and she was telling me that the man we visited had been a coal miner but we had visited the Blue John Mine - a beautiful and apparently expensive mineral mined in the area - and the mine is in the Hope Valley! Small world!


3.) 09 Nov 2020 19:12:52
Ken - glad to hear you are feeling better!


4.) 09 Nov 2020 21:32:35
Ken68. Hope you’re feeling better? Speedy recovery mate.
It was me who told about hesgoal. com, glad to hear you’re getting your games for free 👍👍.


5.) 09 Nov 2020 21:39:55
Good to see you again Ken mate, hope you're ok from that hip injury.


6.) 10 Nov 2020 14:22:31
Thanks for the good wishes gents! Much appreciated.


7.) 10 Nov 2020 18:17:15
Thanks again to Lowwolf, wall to wall football now! Though tbf I've watched some garbage as well. Mind you it was free garbage!


8.) 10 Nov 2020 20:28:28
Ken, serves you right for watching the Albion 😂😂.


 

 

26 Oct 2020 14:06:21
I thought I'd wait a bit and think about it before I commented but I still think the same as I did last night!
I looked pretty but it was pedestrian and predictable. On top all game not making any forward movement with any real pace. After 60 minutes take Podence off for Traore also predictable! Why not move Podence to the left and take Saiss off? Not that he was playing badly just doing what he was told.
At the end get mugged! Stupid free kick, not that it was tbh. Nuno blamed the wall, actually I watched it Patricio set it's location. It was a good free kick mind you. Definitely 2 points given away through a lack of ambition for me. We are better than that!
I watched the Arsenal game after and to be fair they were no better. It looked pretty and achieved buggar all except of course they lost, mugged more than us.
We should have won easy but you need more urgency it no good picking it up when they score late. We should have been out of sight by then. Hoping for much better against Palace! COYW.

1.) 26 Oct 2020 14:27:20
Agree with most of what you say Ken but, Nuno picks the team so do you think it's his fault. I think Nuno as an ex goalkeeper knows that wall wasn't right. As an ex goalkeeper myself it's obvious there should have been another man on the end of the wall. I agree it wasn't just about the free kick though, we need the midfield to connect with the front three better, we can't keep them pinned in.


2.) 26 Oct 2020 14:38:51
There was a lot of skill on show, but I think this needs to develop into more attacking urgency. We will have a lot of teams come and sit back, and we have to punish them, or they will steal a goal and take points from us.


3.) 26 Oct 2020 16:29:39
Totally agree! We were much too slow in the build-up-also too predictable. I would have Traore start.


4.) 26 Oct 2020 17:05:18
What is most poignant, is, that this could be the tightest Premier league for some considerable time and Champions league places are up for grabs. However playing this conservative, pedestrian football won't get us into one of those places. If we miss out-and if we miss out to say Villa-I don't think Nuno will have any excuses. I understand he is still experimenting, but the lack of incisive play is a concern. It's no good the manager coming out saying other players than Jimenez need to chip in when those players need 50 passes and 50 touches to create an opening when five will do.


5.) 26 Oct 2020 19:03:57
Good reading all your thoughts on the match.
Let's hope we get a win and more of an attacking threat against Palace.


6.) 26 Oct 2020 22:42:06
Fantastic post Ken, really enjoyed reading that mate.


 

 

04 Oct 2020 21:00:33
I'm very pleased that we won our game against Fulham before the comedy acts took over! Funny old times!

Ken68

1.) 04 Oct 2020 21:17:28
Crazy times.


 

 

03 Oct 2020 15:23:42
Whilst I would agree that Nuno knows more about football than I do, probably forgot more actually!
I wonder why we don't don't appear to be in for English players. For example Aaron's or as Leeds appear to be looking at Cantwell. Both play in positions that we've been looking at and are not madly expensive. Anyone else give it any thought?

Ken68

1.) 03 Oct 2020 19:56:36
Agreed Ken we do seem to prioritise Portuguese players it wouldn’t harm to look elsewhere. Rhian Brewster joined Sheffield Utd today for 20 mill what a prospect seen him play for Swans last season, a natural goal scorer.

Vinicius to Spurs loan to buy, makes you think doesn't it!

Ross Barkley I think has gone to villa on a season long loan.
Would of liked him for us but trust in Nuno.


2.) 01 Oct 2020 07:49:18
I see Josh King is going for 10m from Bournemouth defentley worth a punt knows where the net is think spurs are in for him 🐺🧡🖤.


3.) 01 Oct 2020 16:14:27
He’s coming to the villa.


4.) 01 Oct 2020 18:16:22
No it's mervyn king, doing an exhibition,


5.) 01 Oct 2020 21:02:12
I see another vile fan has come crawling out the woodwork after the embarrassment of last season, user name super jack! This is the same super jack who said he was off if you didn’t get promoted, also the same super jack that said he was off if you got relegated! The same super jack that broke lockdown rules, drunk drove and left the scene of an accident! That super jack? All the villa fans giving it the billy big bolllocks when we lost to stoke, err how you lot got on tonight?
Short memories a lot of villa fans I think.


6.) 01 Oct 2020 21:47:08
De wolf- couldn't have put it better myself fella, great post! 🤣👍.


7.) 02 Oct 2020 06:37:53
Wolves fans are the best😊.

3 Points, by no means perfect but job done. A nice present of a midfield player tomorrow would be nice. Nice touches from a few today. We are not the only ones struggling a bit at the moment. Hopefully a bit more fluency will come after the break but with so many players away it may sadly take a bit longer!

Thefutureisoldgold, I'm with you midfield player in before Monday or a couple of weeks if English. That would make me very happy. As the wife would say I'm easy pleased. LC would be great!

Ed002 I'm well aware it won't happen. I just happened to be on my wish list. We can dream can't we! To be fair most of my dreams are not football related!

Giroud on loan until the end of the season. Ticks every box. Needs to play to get in the French Euro squad. I don't see a downside. Unless Chelsea won't let him go which would not surprise me one bit.

Ken68

{Ed002's Note - If Giroud wants to go in January then Chelsea would not stand in his way. He won't be moving to Wolves and certainly not on loan.}

Terrible news about Raul. Totally accidental clash of heads both only got eyes for the ball I hope that it is not a career ending injury. For anyone a skull fracture is serious but for someone who is constantly using their head as footballers do and with all the stuff about long term damage it is a big concern.

Luiz should have been taken off at the same time, whatever the so called protocols he looked out of it! Hope Raul is ok and best wishes for a good recovery. The 3 points were nice but under the circumstances largely irrelevant some things are more important.

If they are booked they stop doing it sadly he was a poor referee for us. The imbalance in bookings was pretty obvious and ridiculous.

Doesn't matter what system you play if you don't put the chances you make away you don't win matches! We had enough tonight to win sadly we didn't. Another time they go in, you can pick out individual mistakes but we win lose or draw as a team. Playing a different system all things considered we were ok, not great but ok. At times we looked very good maybe we could be getting it right. Let's hope so. COYW.
