Che Adams on loan may be happening according to John Percy. Apparently, talks are in progress.


1.) 31 Aug 2023 18:29:33
Hope John Percy ain’t right. That’s all we need for a team that can’t score….A forward who can’t score

2.) 31 Aug 2023 18:50:44
He can score.got 3 already

3.) 31 Aug 2023 19:28:33
Oh give over ATM he knows where the net is.

4.) 31 Aug 2023 19:28:52
In the championship, and The Saints have bought another forward, if CA is that good why get another forward?

5.) 31 Aug 2023 20:01:48
Because he wants premier league footy Debs.

6.) 31 Aug 2023 20:21:12
Adams is a good player. He'll score at least 10 goals this season.

7.) 31 Aug 2023 20:46:17
Because he wanted to stay in prem Debbie and Saints wanted to reward him for having been loyal previously by not standing in his way. Player and club doing right for each other for a change.

8.) 31 Aug 2023 21:50:59
Some Wolves fans "we need a striker desperately." striker comes in "oh why are we getting him for" talk about fickle.

9.) 01 Sep 2023 02:57:38
The problem is Rated that for some reason when most peeps talk about a striker these days, what they really mean is 20 goals for the club! What no one seems to realise is that unless you are a top four club or very lucky (e.g. us with pre-injury Raul or Brentford with Toney) then those kind of strikers just don't exist! Jas is correct (as usual:) in this squad Adams would probs get 8-15 goals and just as importantly play a hand in 5-10 more goals! That's the way you HAVE to look at strikers in the bottom half of the Prem, if they can play a hand in 15-25 goals a season then they are good value! I said I wanted Iheanacho but Phil (previously:) talked me round to Che as a like for like alternative (and probs cheaper and younger). He also has the added benefit of being local, which means he won't want to be elsewhere unlike most of Mendes signings! We seem to be taking a more practical approach to recruitment. Hobbs and GON have taken us away from the 'best' (pantomime:) horse of Mendes stable and seem to be looking at the sqaud more holistically. Hobbs mentioned Bueno being left footed and that we now have a good balance of cbs (2xLf and 2x Rf). And for me Adams is similar, not prolific but brings attributes to the squad that are missing from the front line (speed, cutting in from the wing, poaching). If we are interested in Harrison I suspect it'll be the same, as in he'll replace attributes the midfield will now lack without Nunes (which I suspect is mostly ball carrying).
I suppose what I am saying (in a fairly round about way:) is that it's nice to FINALLY feel like our recruitment has some purpose again! C'mon Hobbs give us a transfer deadline day to remember! COYW??

10.) 01 Sep 2023 09:30:14
Correct BB outside a Kane, Sterling or Salah 15 is a good haul for a top flight striker, 19 is an every other game goal scorer.

11.) 01 Sep 2023 09:55:02
I welcome Che Adams he's great striker.he will help others up front all I got to say O'Neill's barmy army .so glad he's here he's a great manager who deserves a chance.

12.) 01 Sep 2023 10:51:14
Because they wanted Kane, Rated. More often than not the same fans are unable to come up with a realistic viable alternative but still moan.



22 Jun 2023 09:39:36
According to Football fantasy Wolves have made an approach for Nathan Redmond, probably on a free I would think.

Plus, having just seen the new away strip it got me thinking, have Wolves ever used red before? I quite like it.


1.) 22 Jun 2023 11:26:39
Seems a weird choice to me afterall apart from Luton Town, the only potential (mild) clashes are against teams that play in red.

2.) 22 Jun 2023 13:04:37
Redmond wants 2m pa aka 40k per week or perhaps 1k per hour. When you look at it and think my pension is 15mins of that. Am I jealous? Actually no I'm not but I do despair of values in society these days. I suppose it's no different with CEO's of public companies (though they don't have a squad of twenty five) I don't see anyone worth those salaries!

That gentleman in a nutshell is why despite loving the new away shirt there is not a hope in hell that I would ever buy one!

3.) 22 Jun 2023 13:06:23
Is it coincidence that it's Portugal's national team colour?

4.) 22 Jun 2023 13:32:00
Didn’t the club originally play in Red and White stripes?

5.) 22 Jun 2023 14:46:48
It's more Spain phil, a nod to JL perhaps?

6.) 22 Jun 2023 15:51:02
Ah I'm colour blind Portugal and Spain I can't tell the difference look same to me.
But yes Abbey a nod to JL perhaps.

7.) 22 Jun 2023 15:51:19
Your quite right HalfTimePie, as someone whose recently been around the Wolves Museum I should have remembered that. ?

It probably is a nod to Iberia but it makes a nice change to the usual colours used so for me, not bad.

8.) 22 Jun 2023 16:41:28
Perhaps we are hoping to get the refs on our side wearing red.

And yes we did wear red and whites stripes, changing from blue and white stripes in the 1800's.probably because we looked kak in blue and white.

9.) 22 Jun 2023 19:51:58
It's a nod to Sarabia.

10.) 22 Jun 2023 20:15:11
Reading more on the design the pattern supposedly represent 'iberian architechture' and the red is to make our iberian players more at home on their travels.!?

11.) 23 Jun 2023 09:24:55
Last ditch attempt to get traore to stay?



15 May 2023 20:42:22
According to Goodison News 'Injury Expert' that two Wolves players will be out of this weekends Wolves side, apparently Chiquinho and Kalajdzic. I must say that's come as a real shock!

Secondly, apparently The Boy Hotspur and Football Insider are both claiming that Spurs are plotting a move for Lopetegui and Matt Hobbs. I suppose we should be used to this sort of thing by now.


1.) 15 May 2023 22:45:43
Well Longmynd, those normally astute chappies,the bookmakers, know nothing about it because currently Lopetegui doesn't feature anywhere in the betting market.
Current favourite is Arne Slot (Feyenoord)followed by Rogers, Allonso and Frank.

2.) 16 May 2023 07:02:36
Morning OW and L.If Lopetegui is not supported in the summer, he will be gone.wherever, but to a top team.

3.) 16 May 2023 07:51:57
That rules Spurs out then Rugeley, without Kane barely mid table, imo.

4.) 16 May 2023 11:01:39
Morning to you too, Rugeley. Can't deny that. His forthcoming meeting with Shi will probably be pivotal (for him and our future).

5.) 16 May 2023 11:29:46
He's entered the betting at 40/1.

6.) 16 May 2023 14:34:32
Considering Wolves pushed and pushed to get JL, part of which allegedly involved transfer funding promises, I can only see that meeting as being a positive one Old Wulf.

Especially if others are sniffing about as to do otherwise would be beyond stupid.

7.) 16 May 2023 16:23:20
Agree Long.the new structure must have cost a Fosun a fortune, they will not waste that investment. Also Lopetegui would not have come if he wasn't given the reassurance that the resources to fix the squad this summer would be provided.
Also Clubs like Spurs would only offer him a Coaching role, not the all-embracing "Manager's" Role he has with us.

8.) 16 May 2023 18:07:30
Good last point,Rugeley. That's got to mean a lot to any coach come manager worth his salt.



05 May 2023 19:55:18
According to sources in Spain (Spanish journalist Toni Juanmarti) Mendes is allegedly trying to broker a deal with Barcelona for their 20 year old striker Ansu Fati.

The price: Ruben Neves plus £30M, how good must he be?


1.) 05 May 2023 23:02:06
He's very good. He was touted as superstar about 2 years ago. We've also been linked to Nico Williams from Bilbao. Apparently Lopetegui has been given a huge pot of money to rebuild the squad and push us towards the European places.

2.) 06 May 2023 07:05:25
Let's just get over the line Jas first.then look forward not to evolution.but the revolution!

3.) 06 May 2023 08:48:03
We're also being linked with Coventry striker Viktor
Gyökeres (again).

4.) 06 May 2023 09:19:59
I saw that too Deb.
Be interesting to see if it materialises.
Imo every signing is not a certain that the player turns out as expected being the premier league is such a difficult league.

5.) 06 May 2023 11:52:32
He's good Longmynd but hasn't been pulling up trees and is far from being a regular. 4 goals and 3 assists in 31 league appearances this season. Only 20 though so has time on his side.

6.) 06 May 2023 16:06:04
This is one of my concerns about our striker pool Old Wulf, surely if we want to give it a serious go next season, we need proven finishers, not more potential.

7.) 06 May 2023 17:43:19
That's correct long but as I think BB regularly puts it, who? They cost a fortune and go to the big 6/7, it may be potential is the only way forward.

8.) 08 May 2023 11:53:25
Re Fati who does look a decent prospect. All I'd say Jas and I'm not knocking you but touted as a superstar a couple of years ago. I seem to remember we spent the family Silva on one of them! Just a thought pal.

9.) 08 May 2023 13:19:29
But you do realise that Lopetegui's agent is Jorge Mendes. Lopetegui really rates him and was on the verge of handing him his international debut when he was Spain manager. This is not a player who is not known. He just doesn't suit Xavi's style of play at Barca. Lopetegui will not be dictated to by Mendes and if he doesn't want him, he won't come.

There will be a clear out at Wolves this summer and if we are signing players of the calibre of Fati, then boy, we are in for an exciting ride.

I also think Silva will come back and prove that he really was worth the initial outlay.

{Ed001's Note - it is nothing to do with style of play. It is injuries and the fact that Messi is no longer there. Fati was being represented by Messi's brother while Messi was at Barca and so he got what he wanted to keep Messi happy. The injuries have made Xavi not trust him.}

10.) 08 May 2023 13:41:48
Either way, I'd still have him at Wolves over Podence and Adama.

{Ed001's Note - when fit and firing he is a fantastic player. Nice family too.}



28 Feb 2023 13:57:12
Not sure how realistic this one is but Mundo Deportivo claim Vinicious Souza will be signed by Wolves for next season

The City Football Group actually own Souza's parent club, Lommel and they allegedly have an agreement in place with Wolves for him to go to Molineux next season.

Nothing on if it will be a loan or permanent at this stage. Stand out player (on loan) for Espanyol so could he be a Neves replacement, if true?


1.) 28 Feb 2023 16:53:22
Was reading he is "Casemiro 2.0" - could be a good signing if true.

06 May 2024 23:55:57
Just wanted to add my thanks to the Eds for keeping this site orderly and respectful, unlike some.

I would also like to sympathise with those who have had enough of travelling long distances only to witness the slow demise of the game in the Premier League. The absurd levels of spending which encourages cheating plus the inexplicable and indefensible refereeing/VAR decisions all taking their toll.

Personally, I don't get to the Molineux as much as I would like these days but still invest plenty of time and emotional energy following my club. I can live with losing, I can live with injuries and dips in form or even managerial failings, but all the other stuff, nope. That literally puts some teams in a 'can't win' situation and that is just not on.

Let's see if the League applies appropriate punishments to the 'top' teams as it did to those from lower down. Let's see if the proposed changes to VAR improves it's validity. Let's see if we can get through a season without the words referee and corruption appearing in the same sentence.

Am I hopeful? no not really, so for me, the jury is well and truly out, one more season with the absurdity of this one and I'm probably done.


{Ed001's Note - that's really sad that people have had enough, but I do understand it. I find myself watching much less football than I used to. It is just not as enjoyable.}

1.) 07 May 2024 02:17:40
I find myself watching the lower leagues these days mate, next season i'm going to go to Bilston town fc matches, i'm done with the Premier league I will always love Wolves but I just can't put up with the corruption of the Premier league anymore mate.

{Ed001's Note - lower league footie needs more fans and the people involved in the game actually do it because they care not for the money. It used to be that people would go to their main team when they were at home and then a lot of them would just go and watch local teams when they were away. That was what kept local football going and why we have the ban on televised games at 3pm on a Saturday. The game at that level deserves better - more people going along to support and better support from the highest levels of the game.}

2.) 07 May 2024 07:23:01
Absolutely, Ed001/Rated we used to go and watch Walsall if Wolves were away. No one ever truly walks away from their team but fans need to be more proactive, imo.

Money will always corrupt I suppose but the technology is there to help the officials get it right, like in other sports, not create another way to get it wrong. So let's hope lessons have been learnt and refs get back to controlling the game and not the result, this ain't wrestling.

{Ed001's Note - one of my coaches as a kid was a Walsall fan and worked for them as a scout. Or Smallsall as he always jokingly referred to them.}

3.) 07 May 2024 08:58:05
VAR/referees - Learn from the rugby set up if we can ??‍♂️

4.) 07 May 2024 09:50:04
Football the game should flow not stopping for 2 or over minutes everytime it goes to VAR.
This needs to be resolved amongst the other changes to what's needed.

Re Walsall, My dad used to take my bro and I to fellows Park when were young kids.
Remember my dad telling me how to Remember the capital of Poland its down the road Warsaw (walsall).

{Ed001's Note - that is spot on Phil. The reason football is so good is its flow. American sports are boring to me because of their stop start nature. Whereas footie you can get caught up in the ongoing back and forth without having to stop so some fat knacker can get another hotdog.}

5.) 07 May 2024 11:19:08
Var will never work, it’s only useful for “matter of fact”, individual fouls can’t possibly be isolated and looked at on screen by someone who’s not even in the Stadium, only the ref and his assistants including the see what’s going on between players, refs let some things go, some players deserve to be fouled because they’ve “got away with one” themselves, refs can take a look at the screen if they think they’ve missed something, how many officials does it take to referee such a simple game as football? We used to referee ourselves when we were kids, we knew the biggest lads were always right, worked better than VAR though.

6.) 07 May 2024 12:24:58
Exactly BosWolf mate var works really well in rugby, on Netgen tv there is a rugby channel and during a var check you hear the conversation, the ref also explains to the players what is being said and what is happening.

7.) 07 May 2024 13:26:24
Rated I get your point but are the refs, even the top ones sufficiently familiar with the rules and is the FA/EPL guidance robust enough for an in stadium discussion to take place!

8.) 07 May 2024 15:05:22
Ed001 gosh we almost came to blows then! As one who identifies as both "fat" and "knackered" I was about to get the old boxing gloves on! But the in the nick of time you said hot dog, never eaten one! If you'd said pie you would have been in trouble mate!

As for VAR I hate it with a passion. For me part of the game was always having a beer after the game and treating the referees performance like that of a player! All 23 men ( plus women now I guess) do their best but they are human and mistakes happen. Live with it, our game is fast just how we want it and errors will occur. Get over it, it's what I loved, now it's being ruined!

West Ham used to have class! Lopetigui announcing himself as their new manager on the BBC website in his interview with Baggage his Spanish spokesman is utterly classless! David Moyes did not deserve that. I do hope it all ends in tears!

{Ed001's Note - sorry Ken, I apologise for the confusion. By the way knacker must be scouse slang, I never realised, it just means something like fool, idiot, or similar, so clearly not you.}

9.) 07 May 2024 15:46:03
Ed001 no need to apologise, I'm still laughing! I wasn't in the least offended just gave me a reason to go off st a tangent. Actually I suppose it would be interesting to see how much food sales go up during VAR interventions! A profitable consequence of a terrible system!

{Ed001's Note - you jest but one of the reasonings things like stoppages for VAR and water breaks were suggested in the first place was for exactly that purpose. Why do you think clubs are so happy to have a stoppage so Muslim players can break their fasts during Ramadan? It is not altruistic, they know that there are Muslims in the crowd who will also buy food and drink for that purpose, as well as the usual people in the crowd who nip for a drink or bite to eat.

FIFA actually had a look into all kinds of things that could be used during FIFA tournaments. There was the usual things that can media coverage, such as splitting the game into thirds or quarters etc, but breaks for video replays of match events was in there as a suggestion.}

10.) 07 May 2024 16:46:52
Ed001 it's the disease of the 2000's everyone from government down interfering to fix things that don't have anything wrong with them! I find all the interventions in all facets of life, sport etc etc so annoying. The micro managing of our daily lives is becoming quite intolerable. Thankfully most of my life has been lived so probably won't have to put up with it for many more years!

11.) 07 May 2024 17:06:25
It also means something that is worn out Ed001, usually due to overuse or age. Lots of us can probably admit to that.

12.) 07 May 2024 19:04:55
You've hit the nail on the head there Ed. It's not about a game of football anymore it's being treated like a TV show with Ad breaks. They've ruined the sport to line they're already full pockets and we're the mugs for paying.
Ken, never imagined you as the fat knacker type, but reminded me of a time we went to QPR away, years ago now, queued up for pies, everyone in front walking away with steaming succulent pastries. Got ours which felt warm but on trying to bite in found them frozen solid in the middle, no chance of getting back for a refund.Then we found ourselves seated with a bloody great piller blocking the view of the goalmouth. We tried thawing the pies in our hands, between our legs and wrapped in our bobble hats (told you it was a long time ago). They ended up on the the floor on the way out. Never bothered with a pie since.

13.) 07 May 2024 21:40:33
Intriguing posts. All true from the heart and the brain.
I moan as much as anyone, I admit it
, and as much as I don't want to, but the only way to put, our case across, is by declining, to go to matches, decline buying merchandise, stop funding the very hand that feeds us.
Our beautiful game is no more
The enjoyments gone
So why watch it.
We the people
Have the power to do something about this, cloud that hangs over football
The hardest part is to get everyone to stick together
We all want the same thing
Our game back

14.) 08 May 2024 08:08:12
I will give JLOP 3 months before he throws his dummy out of the pram if he is the new coach at West Ham?
He will find David Sullivan far more difficult to deal with than Jeff Shi.
After leaving Wolves 3 days before the season started and now announcing in the media that he is the new coach at West Ham leaves one with agreement that he lacks any sort of class.
Have a thought for David Moyes who has done a great job at West Ham and the club are in a much better situation than when he joined.
But hey this is all about the soap opera called the premier league.

15.) 08 May 2024 08:13:28
Won't happen greylegwolf, the tv companies and entertainment business will still subscribe to it. Overseas tv subscribers etc. The football going fan may effect the atmosphere in the ground but it'll still be shown and advertisers will still pay to be seen. Plus, as love is a drug, it'd be hard to turn our backs on our team and they know that.



14 Apr 2024 21:06:19
Is Cunha our new Jota, in waiting? I only say in waiting because back then we had a centre forward for Jota to play off.

Maybe if Wolves get a decent CF for next season we may see a return to those heady days and performances. Having said that our performances this season have been good but the defence does also need attention as too many unnecessary and late goals conceded imo.

As for MGW, what's his problem? He chose to leave Wolves but I for one can't stand the little twerp so I'm glad he did. He falls into the same group as Grealish for me, thinks he's better than he actually is.


1.) 15 Apr 2024 06:08:19
MGW was offered a new contract but he wouldn't sign it as he wanted regular football which Bruno Lage couldn't him due to other players being ahead if him.

The fact that the club stood by him when he breached Covid rules etc seems to have passed him by.

2.) 16 Apr 2024 13:11:53
Let's face it, if MGW was to return to Molineux he would still only be good enough to warm the subs bench. He is a n average player with a super inflated ego.

3.) 16 Apr 2024 15:03:06
Hi Ray if MGW played under GON imo he would do well
but it ain't ever going to happen



05 Apr 2024 12:49:12
Additional to what was posted below I was lying in bed this morning contemplating what this season might bring and with nothing more than gut feel came up with the belief that we'll finish in 8th. I know many of us have aspirations of a European place, but I really don't think we have the player resources to get there.

However, given the goings-on of pre-season and the installation of a 'rooky' manager that in itself would be a very creditable performance, one in the eye for all the pundits and assorted 'experts' that had us down for relegation. The FA Cup was a disappointment but symptomatic of my earlier observations, imo. We just don't have the strength in depth and given the additional injury burden that we are enduring we will just have to limp through to the end of the season, pardon the pun. However, next season could look different as the benefits of last years re-organisation start to be felt and we continue buying more wisely and hopefully getting more 'bang for our buck'. A period, where our performance is more important than Gestifutes balance sheet.

Still, that was then, this is now and given those changes, at last, we have some football knowledge in charge of recruitment as Wolves become an established Premier League club, irrespective of any cut backs. Yes we've dodged bullets but personally I'm grateful that Fosun reacted when they did to make those changes as once clubs get locked into that cycle of unsustainable debt it's game over, just look at Everton. A once well run club that remained a stalwart of the top flight for many years but now, OMG. They will get a further points deduction and given that their debts have doubled again this season guess what the future will bring? All that saddled with losses of £500M over the last 5 years plus the costs of a brand new stadium and about to be sold to the 777 Group, what can possibly go wrong?

They're not on their own, Wolves despite all of our protestations, cut their cloth very short to avoid joining that unenviable group of clubs City, Everton, Chelsea, Notts Forest who all have or will be subjected to sanctions, points deductions or worse. There are more on the fringes like Villa who will probably need to do something similar to us come the summer.

As Wolves fans we've heard the 'gravy tomorrow' promises a lot over the years but I do feel much more confident now with the likes of Hobbs/GON buying the players than I ever did during the Shi/Sellars/Mendes era, but time will tell. So I look forward to the summer, planning ride outs on the bike across the country secure in the knowledge that we go again next year in the Premier League. It's a nice feeling, content is the word, so long as the increasingly ageist insurance industry is happy to insure me and I'm not forced to buy something more sedate before I'm ready to. Just put that in context I was once asked in a rather supercilious manner "why does a man your age ride a 200 mph superbike?" to which my reply was an equally supercilious "because they don't make a 300 mph one". Well they do say do one thing every day that scares you, good for the heart, apparently.??


1.) 05 Apr 2024 14:33:13
Hi LongmyndWolf,
Great post. I'm not quite as optimistic as you regarding our finishing position. I'm going 12-13th, which is still fantastic considering what the so called pundits predicted.
PS my superbike insurance has gone through the roof even at my tender age of 64. Do I want to go smaller and slower though?? Absolutely not ?

2.) 05 Apr 2024 15:26:18
Nice to know you're a kindred biker spirit Blackfords. Tbf my insurance only went up £7 from last year but that year it did jump up quite a bit due to me reaching a certain age. Again though I have I have a better policy and a much lower excess, so perhaps I shouldn't complain too much.

As for my other hobby I'll stick with my top half prediction. ??

3.) 05 Apr 2024 16:36:54
Hi Longmynd, I agree with much of your post.
However, not us finishing 8th (nice though it would be!)
I am closer to Blackfords view, 12th or 13th, which would still represent a very successful season.
In the meantime, both you chaps ride safe over the summer.

4.) 05 Apr 2024 17:51:45
Hi Rugeley, if we beat West Ham tomorrow I will be more confident and it will be a good measure of where we are as they're not in good form at the moment.

5.) 05 Apr 2024 18:00:44
I would be surprised and delighted to finish 8th, the current top 5 will almost certainly finish above us, I expect Brighton, Man U, Newcastle and maybe Chelsea and West Ham to finish above us to. I'll go 10th.

6.) 05 Apr 2024 22:04:32
If all those teams finish above us, we'll finish 11th.

I think we'll finish 8th personally and get into Conference League (if 5 qualify for Champions League)

7.) 05 Apr 2024 23:28:01
I'd be happy with 11th tbh especially as we were favourites for relegation.

8.) 06 Apr 2024 11:42:31
Imo we'll finish 11th.

Safe riding longmynd and Blacksfords .




01 Jan 2024 20:48:11
Happy New Year everyone. For all three games over the Xmas/New Year period I've had to be somewhere else or I've been travelling, so I've missed them all. Maybe it's something I should continue doing as it seems to work out for the best.

Watching the highlights and MOTD of all the three games the Everton performance, in my opinion, was the best and certainly the 'easiest on the eye' for Wolves fans, at times brilliant. However, even when playing maybe not at our best we still managed to win the other games. Chelsea for example haven't lost a game since we beat them, Everton had only lost one away game out of seven previously so I have a question. Pretty football or not have we just become a hard team to beat?

Now with scoring goals again, 9 in 3 games since West Ham while conceding just 2, our once poor goal difference is improving nicely, something that may prove vital towards the end of the season. Personally, I think we will bring in another striker and possibly one other but not sure where for. We've lost some iconic players this season, no doubt but are this group actually more productive or is it the way GON sets them up? Neves was probably the best player I've ever seen in a Wolves shirt, but when your 'ball magnet' is a defensive midfielder does that help to stifle the attack? Even Jimenez, a player many of us had written off is now scoring again regularly, so was his goal drought his fault? How would he have performed under GON?

If's and but's maybe but one thing's for sure imo, GON has the potential to take this squad a long way, how long? time will tell, but it's going to be fun watching.

I agree, Neves was one of the best, but his offensive capabilities weren't strong/aggressive enough to help out with goals much. Although he did have the occasional golazo! I think Lemina has shown to be not far behind in many regards and possibly a better type for our style of play now. And Gomes also a great compliment to Lemina as Moutinho was for Neves.

Just got back in from a meeting
As Brentford are below us I was expecting a beating
How wrong I was I'm pleased to report
'We need to show resilience' was Thomas Frank's retort
I heard that with some hilarity
More like Brentford were a registered charity
Agent Collins was our man of the match
At 3-1 up we were hard to catch
When I say hard what can you say
3 goals in 49 seconds of open play
Lemina started the rot when he headed
Something I'm sure they always dreaded
Sarabia was on fire there's no doubt
Wolves fans believing we were in with a shout
Then up strode Hwang he's in great form
Scoring goals becoming his norm
They pulled one back but it didn't matter
Brentford were set up for Wolves to batter
A third then a fourth hit the net
4-1 it finished, some having placed such a bet
So the boys did well and GON was happy
Unlike that Brentford Manager chappie
Let's hope Wolves push on from here
Another win for a bit of New Year cheer
Let's leapfrog Chelsea into the top half
Move up the table, I'll even buy another scarf
The one I've got is now a bit old
'74 League Cup if I may be so bold
So next up Everton a hard one to call
They've been going well but pride comes before a fall
Has their revival run out of steam
A Wolves win and a Chelsea/Brighton loss is my dream
What will be will be but I have no doubt
To start January in 9th we're in with a shout
So come on Wolves keep up the pressure
Listen to GON he's a managerial treasure
Get into the top half and we won't look back
Let's get this club back on track

Excellent Longmynd I enjoyed reading that!
What an excellent team performance that was last night. Hwang I thought was terrific, you make your own luck and his running in the hope of a chance brought him his goals. By being switched on and prepared to make runs in anticipation of errors and half chances characterised our performance last night. I hope the team are not going to be running on empty at the weekend after the Premier League gave us such a diabolical schedule over the holiday. It's not like we have the squad to freshen it up that much!
I can't see Neto starting, if Hwang can't play it might mean giving Sasa a start, who knows? Hoping for another win and fingers crossed!

Totally agree WolvesNutta, if that's true, welcome Che would be my reaction. However, I thought Southampton wanted to tie him down to a new contract first, maybe they have or will.

This season may be more interesting than many have predicted and we may yet be glad that Nunes did a runner. It seems to have opened the floodgates a bit.

Time will tell, of course, but I'd rather have a team of players who actually want to be here.

Subject to work permit apparently but at 24 years of age, a 6ft 4" frame and can apparently play a bit, sounds like a good signing.

This is probably why the Elvedi pursuit slowed down somewhat.

If he contributes what Matt Hobbs thinks he will then welcome Enso, I for one will be keen to see what you bring. Only eighteen but they must think he's good enough for the first team.

Thanks OldWulf, nice pun btw. I've got room in my life for both if I'm honest but I come on here to generally show support for the club, question the things I don't support and enjoy the sensible comments and well thought out observations of others.

I accept that some use it to vent their frustrations which is actually not a bad outlet and I've always adopted Derry's point if any of it has been addressed to me. Let's just hope as we get into the season and our performances are rewarded everyone will feel a bit more encouraged.

If the get £10M for Podence a player who we don't appear to need or potentially want, we can buy Elvedi who we do need and want with a couple of £M change.

Sums it up LindsyB other than to add my prediction of an 8th place finish did not age well. Apart from the absurdity of this season on the pitch it's what's happening off it that's also of interest.

We've heard from a couple of sources now that Wolves want to be self sufficient from a transfer perspective. This is of course a policy of sell to buy, the official line being that any money coming into the club will be spent on ground improvements.

Does this mean Fosun can't or won't fund both or in truth, either. I know they had a dodgy spell a couple of years ago but I have little knowledge of their current situation. What I do know is things have seemingly gone very quiet over there by comparison with their early years. How's the fashion line and store doing over there, how's offshore fan development going and so on.

Perhaps we need a state of play report to help everyone understand our situation, I won't hold my breath. For me, however, it's also about how the rules are manipulated to suit certain teams, how games are officiated if you like.

I'll stick to my plan, one more season to see if things improve, if not, what's the point? Football has become all about the £ and not the ⚽, what's next a quick advert while we wait for VAR?

Hi Wimbourne, sounds like you're enjoying your trip. I think I drove that road many years ago but sadly not on a bike. Maybe I'll get to do it on two wheels one day as I've been thinking about a good overseas ride.

Plenty of good rides here in the meantime so looking forward to a better summer than last. Plus, my bike isn't exactly what you might consider to be a tourer, lol.

It also means something that is worn out Ed001, usually due to overuse or age. Lots of us can probably admit to that.

Absolutely, Ed001/Rated we used to go and watch Walsall if Wolves were away. No one ever truly walks away from their team but fans need to be more proactive, imo.

Money will always corrupt I suppose but the technology is there to help the officials get it right, like in other sports, not create another way to get it wrong. So let's hope lessons have been learnt and refs get back to controlling the game and not the result, this ain't wrestling.


{Ed001's Note - one of my coaches as a kid was a Walsall fan and worked for them as a scout. Or Smallsall as he always jokingly referred to them.}
