So it's official MGW season long loan at Swansea.
Reading Jeff shi the club have full faith in him as our best academy product.
Hoping he does well and comes back next season as Jeff says stronger and better.
FWAW.

The new contract for MGW is confirmation that Nuno has not lost faith in him. It's all up to MGW now to play his way back to Wolves next year. I wonder if the loan has a recall clause?


2.) 25 Aug 2020 16:51:05
Exactly what he needs, Nuno clearly has faith in him, it's up to MGW to perform on the pitch. Hopefully, it works out for all parties.


3.) 25 Aug 2020 17:28:28
Nuno likes to work with a small squad: 3 goalkeepers and 15 outfield players. Given this it looks likely that serial ‘bench-warmers’ will be moved out, either on loan or permanently. This would result in a match day squad in which he had total confidence. Exits are likely to be: MGW already confirmed, Bennett, Burr, Jordao, Miranda, Campana and Kilman. May be other exits but that will be because offer is too good to reject. As for in-comings - experience has shown that we won’t know those until they are done and dusted. However I am sure they will be players who will enhance that match day squad.


4.) 25 Aug 2020 19:01:38
I expect this to be Jordao's breakthrough season. On balance I think Nuno prefers a middle three that supports two forwards. Squad currently seems weighted towards three forwards. Jordao looks like the number ten who can provide real attacking support.


5.) 25 Aug 2020 20:51:05
Hope you are right regarding Jordao. Whomsoever is in the match day squads need to have time on the pitch. Unfair on those who sit there week in week out and watch substitutions being the same two or three, irrespective of player coming off. The ability of three or four players to play in a number of positions allows Nuno to stick to those three familiar substitutions. This results in the also rains coming into games with no minutes in the tank. This happened in some Euro games, and it was hardly a surprise when they didn’t hit the ground running.
I think some players suffered more than others from lack of minutes: Neto was underplayed and subsequently didn’t really push on from an excellent start. Probably also suffered from us adopting a more defence minded approach in the second half of the season. Was this change necessitated by our punishing schedule. No Europa League next season, so hopefully a more progressive style, especially if all squad members are to be trusted with time on the pitch.


6.) 26 Aug 2020 09:48:51
Absolutely right what you are saying Ecosse. But I think there were a couple of other factors affecting us last season. Firstly the poor start, which meant extra pressure on each game. Secondly the fact that our two signings Cutrone and Vallejo looking way out of their depth when playing convinced Nuno that new signings needed longer to learn the Wolves way before playing and they were just lost opportunities to expand the squad. Our cup draws were quickly against prem opposition, so when he did experiment against Villa we were knocked out. And finally the awful injuries to Jordao and Shabani within ten minutes of each other took out the two leading young players who could extend our squad.


 

 

01 Aug 2020 12:07:27
Chelsea or Arsenal today who do you think would be best result for us today?
I'm happy either way if we want to be a top club we have to manage extra games in Europe and still maintain top league form. We have proved we can do that by being the best of the rest outside the top 6.
New signings a gem coming through the u23s will push us on the road to the top. There still loads of time to grow and progress in Fosun's 10 year plan.

Phil789

1.) 01 Aug 2020 13:40:08
Arsenal please. we need a rest.


2.) 01 Aug 2020 14:46:54
Hope chelsea win, we need to be positive and if we are going places then we have to be competing with the best, and try and win something, what the games all about.
Fosun want us up there, that's why they invested the money
So let's be positive, let's face it on our day we can beat anyone, we are due some luck with refereeing decisions so let's hope we can get some luck in Europa and go all the way.


3.) 01 Aug 2020 16:25:57
Agree bigwolf, fosun have given us a super manager, who step by step is gathering a squad of immense talent. Maybe just like vista, cavaliers and co, were let go because they had done the job of getting us to that first phase, maybe their replacements have got us to next phase and it's time to move one or two on and fill there places with more class, potential class recruits. Coyw.


4.) 01 Aug 2020 16:29:59
Hoping that Chelsea win so we're guaranteed a European spot, we then win the Europa League so enter the CL and Arsenal miss out altogether.


5.) 01 Aug 2020 18:51:50
Chelsea please. Maximise European experience, more games means chances to expand squad.


6.) 01 Aug 2020 19:02:49
Well it looks like Arsenal are in the Europa.


7.) 01 Aug 2020 19:18:46
We will win it and get into CL.


8.) 01 Aug 2020 19:21:39
It's alright lads. We only have to win the thing outright now in the next few weeks. Easy job. keeps things nice and simple.


9.) 01 Aug 2020 19:57:07
Yes yes 👌 we will give it our best shot.
Lets make history 😊.


10.) 01 Aug 2020 20:54:04
Very doubtful.


11.) 01 Aug 2020 21:26:33
It's the Villa fan again. You do team talks too?


12.) 02 Aug 2020 08:50:34
If I supported a team that cheated pram survival by getting a clear goal against ignored I think I would keep a low profile.


 

 

22 Jul 2020 11:43:35
Anyone can confirm if wolves finish 6th arsenal win fa Cup and we win europa league. I'm not sure if there can only be 7 European places. Therefore if I am correct 5th place and arsenal (win fa Cup) =europa league
1st 2nd 3rd and 4th place plus us (europa league winners) =champions league.
If Chelsea win fa Cup we win europa league it would be 5th (6th or 7th) =europa league.
Tonight I think best results 4us is.
Chelsea win guarantee 3rd place finish if West ham win/ beat man utd.
With fa Cup final for Chelsea gives us more of a chance to beat Chelsea, with what's riding on us to win I thought it worth mentioning.
Only thing west ham winning is it better for villa but villa are no match for us if they stay up. Imo it's not just about spending power it's the manager and we have one of the best managers in the league and we have spending power if not more than villa.

Phil789

1.) 22 Jul 2020 12:41:00
If Wolves win Europa League we qualify for the champions League no doubt. Similarly if Arsenal win the FA cup they qualify for the Europa League no doubt as per UEFA rules.
The lowest qualifier the league cup winners place has to play in the Europa qualifiers that would be the team that finishes 5th if Wolves win Europa League and Arsenal win FA cup.

In that case
CHAMPIONS LEAGUE
Wolves
Liverpool
Man C

Europa League
Arsenal

Two from Man U, Leicester, Chelsea play in Champions League and the other in Europa League.

Other possibilities do exist, its best for Wolves if Chelsea win the FA Cup, I think!


2.) 22 Jul 2020 13:54:55
There's more info on the BBC site.


3.) 22 Jul 2020 14:56:33
The dates given on the BBC site are mad. According to the information given if we qualify for the last Europa place and get to this years Europa final we will have to play next years preliminary round [20th August] before this years final [21st August].
As for the rest of the permutations, my understanding is that if we [or ManU] qualify for the CL by winning the Europa then only the first 3 in the Prem will get into CL and 4th place will go into Europa. England have only 4 CL places regardless of how they qualify - same with other countries if someone else wins Europa.


4.) 22 Jul 2020 15:20:46
Upon reading the article it says if we win the Europa League, we would qualify for the CL along with the top 4.


5.) 22 Jul 2020 15:30:11
Mikeywolf, the 20th August date is for the Preliminary Round. The earliest we would have to play is the 2nd Preliminary round on 17/ 9/ 20.


6.) 22 Jul 2020 15:32:07
From Wikipedia

An association may have a maximum of five teams in the Champions League. [70] Therefore, if both the Champions League and Europa League title holders come from the same top-four association and finish outside of the top four of their domestic league, the fourth-placed team of the league will not compete in the Champions League and will instead compete in the Europa League.


7.) 22 Jul 2020 15:58:42
Thnks Arddunby👌.


8.) 22 Jul 2020 18:52:02
Thanks for the clarifications - I understood that the seedings for the preliminary round had not been made yet.

What's all this rumour of wolves knocking down jimenez prices tag to 18 million. is it just paper talk/ click bait? Anyone know?
FWAW.

Phil789

1.) 05 Jun 2020 10:15:29
Assuming that Jimenez isn't crocked in some way that we don't know about, he will not be sold for £18 mil. He must easily be worth what we paid for him, even in this depressed the virus market. But, given his age, 29, he's not going to fetch the mega money that Jota or Traore would fetch.


2.) 05 Jun 2020 11:43:57
Load of tripe. 18 mil. Not for sale. Call me crazy. wouldn't sell the guy for 100mil

Offers too much and fits better than any striker in world football to how we play in my mind.


3.) 05 Jun 2020 12:38:21
Phil mate it was The Sun that'll explain everything that paper is full of bull manure.


4.) 05 Jun 2020 12:59:27
Late April 1st story from TuttoJuve guys; what a scoop! 🙄.


5.) 05 Jun 2020 13:01:14
I believe that whoever wrote this report is leaving a very important element out, namely, the club mentioned is Juventus and the price being £18m. What the reporter has failed to report is that Juventus will pay this as well as giving us a player - Daniele Rugani valued at £11m or Adrian Rabiot value at £22m.

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath.}


6.) 05 Jun 2020 13:48:15
I don't expect Jimenez to be sold for less than we signed him but it's clear that the media can write any old tripe without checking facts.


 

 

19 Nov 2019 06:38:30
No mention of Doherty by Alan Brazil and Ray parlour on talk sport this morning when they talked about Ireland's draw with denmark last night. Disappointed they was no mention but a lovely run into the box and super headed finish.
Rated RKO might be a good bet with Doherty first scorer Saturday against Bournmouth.
FWAW.

Phil789

1.) 19 Nov 2019 08:00:20
I thought Doherty played well and brings more to the RoI team than Seamus Coleman does. Great header too.


2.) 19 Nov 2019 13:11:53
Couldn't give a flying what Brazil and perm parlour have got to say about Doherty just proves they don't know what there talking about.


3.) 19 Nov 2019 15:06:23
It's Talk sport, what do you expect. Should be re named Radio Man Utd.


4.) 19 Nov 2019 18:45:32
Just the media being the media, anti Wolves with the exemption of Shearer.


5.) 23 Nov 2019 08:07:57
Got to be top 6 or a London club to be relevant in the media.


6.) 24 Nov 2019 22:14:10
We are a top six club.

Alright Ed001 I assume you are from liverpool so just wanted to post my 2 times at liverpool with wolves.
When I was a kid growing up in the 80's liverpool were the best mostly on the once a week live game. I always dreamt one day I will experience the crowd all the flags in the kop the never walk alone song. I got my wish when Mick Mccarthy was wolves manager. we won the game 0-1 Stephen ward scored and standing/ sitting next to me was Stephen Wards dad. it was awesome everything I dreamed of as a kid was exactly how I thought it would be. The liverpool fans we spoke to before and after the game were really sound people.
The second time at Anfield was fosuns 1st year Lambert was manager and we won 1-2 in the fa cup.
When weimann scored our 2nd goal I could not see where my brother was from all the wolves fans going crazy in jubilation when I finally saw where my brother was he was 5 or 6 rows back from where our seats was horizontal on top of the crowd, crowd surfing it was fantastic. the game was an early afternoon kick off and our train wasnt till 7PM so we had a booze around liverpool I met Cilla Black lol her statue outside the famous cavern club I think it's called the cavern. we had a few hours in there as my brother is into music.
Liverpool it was like being on holiday where all the bars are.
Posted my memories as we play liverpool the weekend.
🤝.

Phil789

{Ed001's Note - that's great Phil, I would love to say I am happy you got to enjoy the trips but I am too gutted that we lost to you both times!

The Cavern was owned by Tommy Smith for a long while, after it went broke etc.

By the way, not really the Cavern, but as your brother is into music and it does have a tenuous connection to the Cavern he might like this story. Me grandad was always involved in the club scene in the area, from before those days, as he was a stand up comedian/ventriloquist/magician. His best friend from school was a certain Ken Dodd and my grandad organised a big event with a local event organiser to raise funds for the ambulances. Doddy, of course, topped the bill, but the interesting part is the group at 10th on the bill, a little known band called The Beatles. They were due to play before the interval, then do a second set after the interval, but they were so bad on their first set, Doddy said there would be no one left for him to talk to if they went back on. So they sent them packing early and they headed off to do another show elsewhere later on instead. My uncle still has a copy of the bill from the event which has been signed by Doddy, the Beatle that left (something Best, I forget what) and Paul McCartney, who made a point of circling their billing at 10 and writing "not very good billing!!" by it.}


1.) 02 Dec 2020 09:01:45
That's Brill Ed I will show my brother your post.
My bro was a bass guitar player back in the day in his local band.
I asked if I could be backing singer or play the tambourine or triangle I can not put on here what they all said but it ended with off.
When we were both there my brother loved it.
Speaking to the liverpool fans they were friendly but really hated Manchester utd.

{Ed001's Note - that's worrying when they won't even let you play the triangle, that's usually what you give to the guy who wants in put it is useless.

Yeah Man Utd does have a special place in the pantheon of hatred, alongside Maggie Thatcher, in Liverpool.}


2.) 02 Dec 2020 10:06:20
Lol Ed I'm not ashamed to admit I'm totally tone deaf.
My thing was playing football my dad played football and also into his music.
Have a good day pal back to the grindstone for me.

{Ed001's Note - nothing to be ashamed of, I was never musical either, that's why the world invented DJs, so even those of us who can't make music of our own can get involved by picking the best of other people's.

Take care mate, have a great day.}


3.) 02 Dec 2020 10:44:44
My only time to visit Anfield, the season after we went up in the play offs, lost to a hypia header late on if I can recall, brilliant atmosphere that day, pool fans giving ince plenty of stick I recall, brilliant evening after with my dad and brother, drinks, meal and banter.


4.) 02 Dec 2020 13:55:19
Tibbsywolf - that is my only game at Anfield as well. It was v v late goal and we had played ok.
As I only saw the ground that day I took wife to Liverpool for weekend away a few years ago and have to say I loved it.
We stayed in the Prem Inn on Albert dock and did the museums, the Cathedrals and a walking tour of the city that went underground to see the old docks before the shopping centre was built etc etc. The "Terracotta Warriors" from China were at one of the museums and were great but the "Museum of Slavery" was the best. We ran out of time to see everything, (missed the Liverpool Museum and the Cavern! ) and would def recommend a long weekend in the city to anyone - really interesting.


5.) 02 Dec 2020 14:02:46
ps Phil hope all ok - (your comment in thread below) and loved your memories of Wolves (v v rare) wins at Liverpool.
On that subject I didn't go myself but a work colleague took some foreign relation of his who knew nothing about British football to the game in 84.
Wolves got relegated that year and Liverpool won pretty much everything but amazingly a young lad called Steve Mardenborough scored his only ever Wolves league goal in a 1-0 win and my colleague's relative was apparently convinced my colleague had got the teams the wrong way round!


6.) 02 Dec 2020 16:37:51
Hi Thefutureisoldgold all is ok just my brother in brain recovery Jimenez injury bought it home what I see every day.

Lol my brother told me he saw Ken Dodd at the Civic in Wolverhampton and Ken Dodds set went on and on till 1 am in the morning and had to get a taxi home as his car was locked in at the multi storey car park.

😀.

{Ed001's Note - I can believe it. Doddy would keep going so long as the audience were laughing and it was very rare you stopped laughing while Doddy was in full flow. He was the best comedian of all time imo. He is also partly responsible for the sites being started as he would always badger me to get into computers when I was a kid.}

27 Nov 2020 06:35:19
Just interested who do you think was the best footballer Pele or Maradona?
I remember Mexico 86 (aged 13) the hand of god goal and Peter Reid slow as a cart horse for Maradona's brilliant goal.

Hypothetical if VAR was about we may not of won the world cup in 66 and could of won it in 86.
Italia 90 watching us play Belgium when David Platt scored we all thought it was bully, drinks ash tray you name it everything went flying up in the air.
Villa pipped us to the signing of Platt who knows what would of happened if we had got him.

Wolverhampton is in the highest risk tier so for the time being no fans at the mol.
Things could change and at least the government is starting to get football on the way back to normal.
It may take time but there's a light at the end of the tunnel.
Where there is a will there is always a way.
FWAW.

For me Phil, the 3 greatest footballers of all time are:

George Best was a Wolves fan too.

First off, wishing Mike Bailey and his family best wishes.
Secondly, only in my opinion, but I always felt Maradona was overrated.

SQ I remember the conversation with my dad years ago, my dads opinion was that pele was the complete footballer brilliant at everything and that's why my dad thought pele was the greatest.

Also my dad told me how really good George Best was.

Agree SQ and noddyboy about Harewood.


6.) 27 Nov 2020 16:01:58

Hi All, George Best came to Wolves on trial, Stan Cullis sent him back said he was not big enough, hence he was a Wolves fan.

Pele will always be the greatest, a gentleman on and off the field, makes you wonder what he could have done with the different ball we have today.


14.) 28 Nov 2020 11:08:49

Hi Yellowstone I feel proud as punch to be a wolves fan.
Its enjoyable on this site to learn new things about our history.

Is there an announcement from the football after the prime minister announcement Thursday what teams will be allowed to have fans back?
Is it a maximum of 4000 fans?
Have you heard anything Ed?
And anyone on here?
Is it right to have teams with fans and other teams with no fans?

I notice Giles is playing regular for Coventry.
Ennis came on as sub for Burton last night not sure if that was his debut but I think it was.

Sanderson wasn't in the match squad for Sunderland last night.
Our club is growing with a good depth of talent coming through.
FOSUN are doing what they told us fans at the beginning of their takeover.
All is very good being a wolves fan.
Ps anyone keeping track of our over seas loan players would be nice if posted their progress. 😊.

Lol Ed I'm not ashamed to admit I'm totally tone deaf.
My thing was playing football my dad played football and also into his music.
Have a good day pal back to the grindstone for me.

{Ed001's Note - nothing to be ashamed of, I was never musical either, that's why the world invented DJs, so even those of us who can't make music of our own can get involved by picking the best of other people's.

Take care mate, have a great day.}
