Sorry Demon, but here's another one for you.
Wolves are the favourites to secure the signature of Sporting CP's defensive midfielder, Joao Palhinha for around £17M.
Why you think it would cost up to £300M to replace, Ruddy, Marcal, Neves and possibly Jimenez, is a mystery to me.
Trincao is a loan returning and we may even see Traore back yet.

Seems a reasonable signing if we get him, presumably a like for like replacement for Ruben Neves with reasonable scoring stats for a DM.

Wolves have reportedly enquired about Frankfurt captain Sebastian Rode.
At 31 he's definitely an experienced defender but he's had issues with knee injuries this year. Playing tonight against Rangers.

LongmyndWolf

1.) 18 May 2022 23:45:58
He's a midfielder.


2.) 19 May 2022 06:40:17
Oops, my mistake. That should have said central midfielder, either way he gets stuck in which is what we're lacking at the moment.


3.) 19 May 2022 06:42:23
Hahaha enquired, you really are funny. fosun will not be buying anyone of the calibre of player the wolves will need.will Bruno even be the manager come the start of the new season.all these players who will be leaving the club will require 2 to 300 million to replace.can you see fosun spending that.no.neves will no doubt be replaced by the likes of Morgan Gibson White,and if I'm honest he just ain't good enough.our stay in the top flight will be over in 12 months.certain people won't agree I will keep reading on here all the big names we are linked with,but remember they have to sell the season tickets.


4.) 19 May 2022 08:04:11
They're just rumours Demon, don't worry about it. Wolves have been no where near relegation since Fosun took over and any that leave will be replaced. We are an established Premier League team and Fosun won't risk the progress made or their investment to date. They will have no problem selling season tickets, without baiting the hook,as they have thousands on a waiting list. Everyone in football is expendable and players move on, that's the same for all clubs. We may start next season with a new manager but that would only happen if a better one was available, so that would be a good thing, surely.


5.) 19 May 2022 08:34:41
demon on the bright side for you,you will get to see the midland derby wba,Birmingham,coventry.


6.) 19 May 2022 08:52:36
Brilliant Demon. Fosun won't buy the players required. So how do you explain: Sa, Moutinho, Jota, Neves, Jimenez etc?


7.) 19 May 2022 08:58:50
"remember they have to sell the season tickets" are these the same season tickets there is a waiting list for?


8.) 19 May 2022 11:36:13
So we'll definately be seeing some players come in then, as everything Demon has said in the past on here has not happened.

Wolves plans for pre-season in the USA have been hit by the cancellation of the Ohio Cup, a mini tournament involving a couple of teams from England and Spain.
No reasons have been given but it may be because MLS approval wasn't forthcoming.
Wolves still plan to pre-season in the US though.

Wolves are allegedly planning to bid for 19-year-old Argentinian, Carlos Alcaraz.
Others want him as well but for about £17M it might be worth a punt.
Very talented, but again will he lack the experience we need. Thoughts?

LongmyndWolf

1.) 17 May 2022 09:47:57
May as well face it this is our transfer strategy for better or worse. It could pay dividends long term If we want experience we are going to have to scout out players that so many other clubs are after. Looks like we might be moving to a more South American recruitment strategy which fits the general latin cukture at tbe club.


2.) 17 May 2022 11:23:40
Ilkay Gundogan has been told he us free to leave Man City. Rumour is there are a number of clubs including us who are after him. Would be a real statement of intent by Fosun.


3.) 17 May 2022 13:12:32
We have got great future prospects within our squad/under 23s I think we could do with couple of ready made players


 

 

14 May 2022 17:05:05
Apparently, Jimenez may be moving on this summer and Wolves may let him go for £15M.

Congratulations to the U23's for beating Norwich, on penalty's, in the PL2 play off semi final.
They will meet Stoke in the final, at home.

1.) 18 May 2022 06:13:29
Indeed longmyndwolf, Buenos 5th goal in as many games, asst. Luke Cundle. A wing back in a Doherty mould? I really am looking forward to the final, next Monday I think. Well done lads.


 

 

16 May 2022 10:10:03
Should Wolves sell Silva if Real Madrid really are interested. Will he come good for us or would we be be better letting him go.
I think he's been a victim of circumstance here so far but will next season see him blossom into the player everyone was hoping for?

LongmyndWolf

1.) 16 May 2022 10:28:06
If they offer at least what we paid or a valuable swap deal then sell and include a sell on clause. I'd see this as unlikely though. Otherwise keep him.

I agree he has been a victim of circumstance, and there is definitely a player in there. The question on the transfer fee is all about whether who sanctioned it paid for the potential or paid for something for now. I think it was the former personally although the timing of it was questionable.

The problem with a lot of young forwards at his age is that their end product is still developing. There are very very few forwards in the world who do it week in week out at the highest level as teenagers. Most of the current best attackers in the world didn't become regular scorers until at least their early twenties.


2.) 16 May 2022 10:55:42
A definite keep for me, he will become a top class striker if the potential wasn't there no one would be interested, but they are and we would be foolish to sell.


3.) 16 May 2022 11:11:11
Steve Bull has a stand named after him at Molineux but he never played for us in the Premier League.
It’s not Fabio’s fault that we paid over the odds for him but at the same time he has to earn the right to play in the Premier League for a top half team.
He has improved and has bulked up but has not shown that he has the natural ability and goalscoring knack of a top striker.


4.) 16 May 2022 11:28:00
Not for us so far E, but that's the dilemma. Winton makes a good point though, especially when the 'someone interested' may be Real Madrid. I'm sure they can spot talent.


5.) 16 May 2022 12:43:47
Real Madrid are only keeping an eye on Fabio Longmynd and if he does drastically improve they know they can sign him any time they want.
Hope he does start getting goals and assists for us.
Before we signed Hwang permanently it was said that Liverpool and Manchester City were interested in him too but they didn’t try and sign him.


6.) 16 May 2022 12:54:17
Certainly not for anything less than our outlay, and we should make sure of a sell on percentage. Remember our selling of Robbie Keane? Coventry mugged us. Fabio as been abit unfortunate really in bypassing youth experience and being propelled unready and raw into the Premier ist team level. He frustrated us in our over expectancy but I feel the lads going to be OK. Question is do we sit on a vast financial spend in hope or cash in and acquire (which were going to need) somebody (s) ready to go.


 

 

11 May 2022 22:10:03
Well that was fun (not). The first time in ages I've managed to watch a game live.
Terrible defending, non existent midfield, nothing up front, no challenge, ball watching and what's with all those backward passes. Sa must have been knackered by half time.
There's something very wrong here you can tell by the players body language, I'm guessing Neves has given up and probably does want out, he was anonymous in that game.
I can take a loss but I can't take a display like that.

As Arddunby implied in an earlier post the jury is still out on Trincao.
Let's suppose he puts a shift in between now and the end of the season, Wolves make Europe and he is the difference, as I believe he was against Chelsea.
Do we keep him, Traore back or not?
Given that Wolves will pay those kinds of wages to get next level players anyhow it'll be more about value for money than anything.
As I expected Shi has said that, yet again, any ground developments are on the back burner so they can focus on the team development, probably to facilitate those kinds of wages.
Personally, I think he would shine in Europe and help eliminate the risk of Traore being re-introduced, who I think most would agree needs to go.

LongmyndWolf

1.) 08 May 2022 09:44:41
Longmyndwolf the other day I was suggesting getting rid of both adama and trincao but thought trincao would do well else where. Yesterday trincao came on and did very well. Chinquino caught my eye more though and if it wasn't for trincaos goal, he'd be getting more praise. If we were starting with either which would we start with?


2.) 08 May 2022 11:13:30
Well first thing to say is I'm not an accountant but have been crunching a few numbers. If the assumed numbers are correct Traore signed for approx £18m at £40k per week on a 5 year contract. That represents a total outlay of approx £2m per year times 5 for wages so: £18m + £10m = £28m or about £5.6m per year. That will be written off at the end of next season. So we could probably afford to sign Trincao on a 4 year contract at approx £5m per year or £100k per week based on getting Traore off the books quickly or a straight swap. Based on a years commitment already at £130k per week or £6.5m per year (in addition to Traores commitments) the deal would come down to signing for 4 years and shouldn't increase the clubs cost base significantly. However a transfer fee and high wages just has to be out of the question as would keeping both for a season at current salary levels. If the club decides Trincao can offer something to the club it seems an interesting dilemna for the management team. However as I said I'm not an accountant so happy for anyone with more knowledge to expand the disscussion.


3.) 08 May 2022 14:26:03
If Moutinho goes end of season that'd free up another £100kp/w in wages too.


4.) 08 May 2022 14:43:38
Tough question Abbey, like you I like the look of Chiquinho, he should definitely get more time on the pitch. However, if Trincao has clicked and we finish up with both, that as Managers say is a nice problem to have. I'd like to see more of Trincao 'doing more' before commenting on that one.
The maths look sound Arddunby but I think Wolves wage bill will rise significantly anyway, irrespective of Trincao/Traore debate, it will have to to attract the players we need. I think Wolves will start to bring in older more established players a bit more now to achieve the top 6 step up and they command higher wages.


5.) 08 May 2022 17:29:18
Yesterday's performance showed in my opinion that saiss is a liability we no longer need.
Yes, he's been class for us for the last 5yr but is not good enough going forward.
We have enough cover in toti and mosquera to free up his wages for a new addition.
I wish him well but yesterday must surely be his last game in the old gold.

A little reflection. Wolves have the 5th wealthiest owners and sit roughly 10th in the Premier League in terms of the clubs valuation.
The latter presumably based on the stadium, squad value, income versus expenditure and sponsorship deals, etc.
The ground is usually full for home matches and away tickets quickly sold out.
6 years ago we were a midtable Championship side worth a tenth of that. Today we are consistently (bar 1 season) a top half Premier League side that has already flirted with European competition, profitable and moving towards what hopefully will be a significant team strengthening as FFP relaxes this summer. Our owners have just effectively written off a £100M debt owed to them by the club.
I know that performances have dropped off recently, for whatever reason and hopes of another European campaign have all but evaporated.
However, other clubs have spent more, much more in fact, but their performances have been disappointing to say the least Everton (disaster), Villa and to a lesser degree Leicester spring to mind. The reason I mention these three is because they all appear just above us on the club valuation list, probably because of the cost (therefore value) of their underperforming squads.
We all have grievances, for me it's the lack of development of the ground, for others it's the lack of squad depth and/or quality at times.
Yes, we must do better and fewer long term injuries would be nice, but in truth, shouldn't we all be feeling a degree of contentment about our situation and just a tad excited about the prospect of Wolves pushing on to the next level? If Big Jeff is right, we could well be top 6 next year after falling short this. Is that an indication that Wolves are going to splash the cash a bit?
My spec's aren't rose coloured, far from it and we all knew that there would be bumps in the road but it seems to me that the club is still on track to achieve it's stated objectives.
Maybe there are more reasons to be positive about the future than current form implies.

Point wee made


2.) 06 May 2022 07:57:20
I have high spirits for us under Lage and fosun in the coming seasons.
We have had some unfortunate bad luck last 2 seasons injuries ffp restrictions the football global market change resulting from the pandemic.
But our bad luck hasn't got us anywhere near relegation threatened.
With additions in the summer along with Neto hopefully back to his best,jonny a full injury free season we have a very good case to go that extra step.


3.) 06 May 2022 12:29:44
That's the point Phil, we have had a number of difficult situations to cope with, long term injuries to key players, a manager change and the dreaded FFP tying hands to some degree.
Irrespective of all that we are still up there in the league and if we hang onto 8th or thereabouts we've done OK imo.

Probably Old Wulf, lol. The thing is whoever we sell or return after a loan into those leagues seem to do well.
Silva was touted to be one of the best young players out there and that could still be the case, away from the Premier League.

Phil I think the fact that some of our players are of interest to some of Europe's biggest teams is the interesting point for me.
Traore and possibly Neves to Barcelona, MGW of interest to AC Milan, Dendoncker to Lazio and Silva to Real Madrid.
I know that these seeds were sown under the previous Management but that must be seen as an endorsement of our transfer policy.
I know the priority for Wolves has to be the success of the first team but nevertheless it says a lot about the quality within our squad.
This is something I've not witnessed before in 56 years of supporting Wolves.

Not sure there are any plans to sell MGW Bully's. The report says that AC Milan have enquired, that's all.
Wolves may have no intention of selling him.

Can't disagree Jas/bigcheese I think that particular ship has sailed and to be honest can't really see why he's still a Wolves player given his chances of making the first team must be pretty much zero.

Now to completely make Demons day, Inter Milan have made a 'tentative enquiry' for Morgan Gibbs-White.

I think that's why Fosun from the 'get go' talked about a 10 year project. First priority is to get the club into the Prem, second, keep it there and third, push for Europe.
I think players will be more relaxed about joining the club now they'll feel we are an established Premier League with a business model that is secure going forward and an ambition for European competition.
I know Fosun starting talking more lately about a 20 year plan but that was due in part to Covid and probably the time it will take to fully redevelop the Mol.
