Source transfer tavern.
Ivan Toney Brentford.
If we get him I would be very very happy just what we need.
Woukd be perfect signing.
Clearly its click bait the source.


1.) 03 May 2022 16:08:03
He wouldn't be a bad signing by a long stretch. Definitely feels like a rumour that starts by someone saying who they think we should sign. pundit types ect.

It's a massive summer for sure. Deals will be done in lots of areas I'd bet

2.) 03 May 2022 16:24:40
I would love us to sign Toney but it's unlikely for two reasons. Firstly he's already turned us down once! Secondly (and this is actually the real issue) he's young, good and English I'm afraid that means BIG money! I suspect somewhere between £30-60m, I can't see Fosun paying the English player premium when they could just sign a Benfica B team player for a tenth of the price, that's what they like doing! Still I REALLY rate Toney so I would LOVE to be wrong on this one! ?

3.) 03 May 2022 17:59:48
If Erickson stays at Brentford next season I suspect Toney will to.

4.) 03 May 2022 21:05:38
Brentford is the new Sheffield United, had a good first season but will be found out in the "tricky second season"

5.) 04 May 2022 19:55:28
Podence - Ankle/Foot injury - ruled out this weekend
Kilman - Ankle/foot injury - out for season
Semedo - Thigh injury - ruled out this weekend

If none of them play this weekend, I would say it most probably because they are injured and not because of some unsubstantiated rumours of a fall out.

6.) 04 May 2022 22:48:53
There's absolutely no chance of getting Toney for the reasons outlined by Bullys but I thought that he failed a medical rather than turning us down. We clearly need a goalscorer up front but if we do sign someone in that position then it will almost certainly be someone who has never been mentioned.Raul was out of the blue,for example.



26 Mar 2022 10:00:53
PSG after Neto,
Source (worstershire lol)
No The Mail is the source.


1.) 26 Mar 2022 11:24:31
Ha ha Phil. The Tinkerman hasn't confirmed this yet you know! let's take a deep breath until he does! Without him we're like sheep without a sheepdog!

2.) 27 Mar 2022 21:46:02
Confirmed now I have also read this in national press . For a snippet I was told Bruno wants to try and get bernadino from benfica but let's wait for national press to print first shall we

3.) 28 Mar 2022 08:48:06
Bernadino from Benfica? Is he known by any other name or has your source told you that we're interested in signing a 68 year old former player.

4.) 28 Mar 2022 10:20:58
There is no bernadino in the current Benfica squad or out on loan. Misspelling perhaps?

5.) 28 Mar 2022 11:08:43
Not sure I heard the name as bernadino but I believe it's Paulo Bernardo he wants

6.) 28 Mar 2022 11:25:24
I was thinking that after I searched benfica players.

7.) 28 Mar 2022 11:34:37
I wondered if you meant Bernado tbh Tinkerman mate.

8.) 28 Mar 2022 12:25:38
Yeah, Paulo Bernardo seems more like it.



13 Jul 2021 19:30:35
From wolves official website as everyone has probably seen Ryan Giles joins Cardiff City on loan.
Hoping he does well under Mick Macarthy and Terry connor.
With our home grown always want them to succeed you never know a fantastic season at Cardiff and we could have a decent player in the making.
All you can do is keep an eye on his progress and hope he makes the headlines in the championship.
Good luck at Cardiff Ryan Giles.


1.) 13 Jul 2021 20:24:03
Sounds like a good move. Also see that Sanderson might go to Birmingham - hopefully after signing a new contract.
ps Phil started my new career and got paid for my first job!

2.) 13 Jul 2021 20:49:26
Agree on Sanderson Thefutureisoldgold.
Thats great to hear mate hope all goes well for you and long may you earn merit and enjoy all that you achieve.
Things are a lot better today from looking back 12/ 18 months ago.
Lol except our league position which can only be better this season coming.

3.) 13 Jul 2021 21:12:40
Think you are correct. Although we aren't out of the woods yet we are def on the right track.
Lets hope Wolves are as well. Interesting article in E and S by Bully talking about the need for experience partic at CM and CB.
Glad i'm not the only one beating that drum.
Re Job its great fun, outdoors and quite physical - i'd work for nothing but its great picking up a few quid as well.
Sadly the job is by its nature a zero hours contract and thus v sporadic. You only work when you are wanted, mainly eves and weekends, but it looks like there might be a bit this summer (weather permitting! )

4.) 13 Jul 2021 21:17:18
If Sanderson goes to Birmingham my work colleagues are Birmingham fans and one of them is a true running through his blood bluenose he will give me a regular accessment of Sanderson.
I will be watching the championship on Channel Quest Sunday mornings after MOTD.
For Giles and maybe Sanderson.

5.) 13 Jul 2021 21:26:50
future, congrats on the job hope you enjoy it. Before all this C.V. thing arrived I worked a couple of days a week delivering cars all over the place. Great fun in retirement I thought, not for everyone but I miss it so much. Can't do it anymore anyway sadly! .
By the way the ad my son did streaking turned out to be for Danish tv. Quite funny. He's in a new series starting on ITV2 on Friday night called "Apocalypse Wow" sadly he wears a mask all the time, he's the referee. Mind you it's a reality thing at least it's deniable in the future if anyone asks. He got decent money and you need to start somewhere! I might manage the first one with luck!

6.) 13 Jul 2021 21:28:32
I agree with you we need experienced players.
I just feeling chilled at present as there is still 4 weeks or so till the season starts.
But after a couple weeks if we haven't signed a ready made quality first team signing I will start getting itchy.

7.) 13 Jul 2021 22:23:32
Ryan Giles to Cardiff is a fantastic move, for him, and the wolves. Cardiff is a team that will be fighting for promotion this year and will get loads of minutes since Macarthy pushed for this loan to happen. Sanderson to Birmingham would be a great move as well. Also rumors that our young gk Sarkic is currently training with Birmingham and could go out on loan there the next few days.

ken - will take a peak at "Apocalypse wow". If he is working he is doing well. Fingers crossed for him.

10.) 14 Jul 2021 15:48:19
future, don't blame me! He did say I would probably not enjoy it! The main thing is he had fun and got paid. He's also done his first film, small part obviously, gets murdered. Called "Jeepers Creepers III" out December I think. He also said I just won't want to see it either! As long as he gets paid and is happy I'm not concerned.

11.) 14 Jul 2021 16:15:01
Well Ken that's just made me more intrigued. It sounds as if he is starting to get some momentum. Work begets work.
Isn't the Jeepers Creepers horror film franchise quite well known?
Agreeed if they are working and happy you can't ask for more really.
At the monent my youngest graduated this year and is unemployed, my boy has 2 zero hours job and only contracted work for saturday and sundays and my eldest although fully employed is def not happy with much at all including job!

12.) 14 Jul 2021 17:54:41
future. I'd hate to be starting out now its very tough out there for them. Our eldest is a teacher also in London. He teaches sport which he loves. Whilst the youngest is getting work he still works nights as well which is tough so any film work he gets makes for very long hours. As a parent you just try to do your best, wherever they are you worry. At least we do anyway!

13.) 15 Jul 2021 18:49:59
Ken - As usual you are abolutely correct. When we, the wife and I, were starting out in the early 1980s we got jobs easily once we left education and those jobs, even though to start with mine was relatively poorly paid, allowed us to buy a place almost immediately. Now you fear that even a good job like a teacher will probably not enable you to buy a place - particularly in London - for several years, indeed if ever if you are doing it on your own.

14.) 15 Jul 2021 22:24:09
future when we first got married in the late 70's we got 100 percent mortgage on a bungalow in Warwick 11k scared the life put of us!

My eldest son teacher partner a nurse in London, zero chance of buying. Not like London needs them is it, not even any priority on council homes. The rent they pay scares the life out of me!

15.) 16 Jul 2021 13:19:58
Wow -11k. Suspect that is less than the annual rent of a flat in most parts of London today.
My eldest daughter, who has an MA in a relevant subject from a good uni, works for a charity in London and is paid peanuts. Her partner is a garden designer who is trying to make his way independently - so prob earns less than peanuts but works all hours god sends.
For them to buy a flat in south London you are lookng at circa £450-500k.
Never ever going to happen unless we, their respective parents, bankroll them but for me with 3 that's a big big ask!
Without being political their is clearly a link here: rent returns are v high relative to interest rates and with some tax breaks still in place for buy to let landlords - which aren't for actual home owners - it is not surprising that they can always outbid young owner occupiers and keep prices high.
Plus if you are paying an obscene rent how do you ever save to get on that first rung without help from parents.
Once you are away it is a virtuous circle hence Robbie Fowler allegedly has hundreds of properties - the surplus rent forming the deposit for the next few properties and ever onwards.
Bizare that the current government has not fully closed the tax loophole as it is clearly a solid and rationale reason why youngsters in London for example largely vote labour - you can't be a capitalist without capital ie a house!
oops that sounded like politics - sorry!

16.) 16 Jul 2021 14:16:19
future you are quite right. London needs young people! Those in power do little to help, part of the problem I think. Don't see any party offering any help. My eldest, the place they have is nothing special and they pay around 1700. You could get a palace for that anywhere else! Salaries don't really reflect housing costs tbh. They get paid a bit more but nowhere near enough. All they do is get by. Sad really.

17.) 16 Jul 2021 15:15:17
Ken - indeed however WFH might change all that. My daughter could live in Gloucester and buy a nice house for the price of a v small flat in London and if she can wfh and only go in once or twice a month why not?
Prices are crazy in London but as you say wages - outside of the city- are little different. Teacher's feeble London waiting being a good example and they can't WFH really.
Fortunately we are retired -well I am - and the wife works within walking distance of the house so life for us is easy- just the worry as you said for the kids.
I left home at 17 and frankly my parents were shot of me in all but name. Today I suspect we will be supporting/ looking out for our kids for most of our lives!
Goodness knows who is going to look after us though when we get old - I spend a fair bit of time and money looking after my aged mother these days. Not sure my kids will be in any position to return that favour!
oh well it could be a lot lot worse so no point in moaning!

18.) 16 Jul 2021 18:06:32
future I must admit I don't wish myself on my two! I saw my parents deal with parents and my brother and I with my Mum. Though I our case it was mainly my brother as he has been a Bachelor all his life. He owns and lives on a narrowboat now. Whilst I love visiting him I couldn't live on one. Not in winter anyway, not sure he will in a few years!

What's happened to all the posts?


{Ed002's Note - They take them down and paint them in the summer.}

1.) 14 Jun 2021 09:18:45
Ed02 reminds me of my army days being sent to the stores for a tin of white paint to paint the last post 😁
So many rumours about Wolves players leaving and Nuno raiding the squad for Everton ( if he does actually go there)
Obviously uncertainty during this transition and the Euros making things linger on.
I think that everyone is just waiting to see what the plan is.
The press speculation is, of course, unsettling.
Nowt we can do as supporters but just put trust in the new coach and the executives who run the club.

2.) 14 Jun 2021 11:21:46
Its called good weather it gets people off phones and computers, about as rare in England as England winning an opening match in a tournament!

3.) 14 Jun 2021 11:45:05
Exref how can you say the club is in transition. We got no players they all being sold. Are fosun getting their money back before they sell the club.

4.) 14 Jun 2021 12:07:08
I meant the posts which had been posted yesterday and taken off.

{Ed001's Note - someone pointed out something that shouldn't have been posted by a poster who should have been deleted and I couldn't edit just his without it making a mess. I forget who did so or I would be thanking them for spotting it.}

5.) 14 Jun 2021 12:54:17
Phil : “what’s happened to all the posts” - Would imagine most fans are preparing for the next batch of disappointment, which after three fantastic seasons started just about this time last year, they’ve already stepped it up a notch and they’ve hardly started yet.

6.) 14 Jun 2021 13:04:07
Demon, if you're a Wolves fan, don't be so dramatic. The club is obviously in transition. So far not a single player has been sold, but some will go and some new will come in. So what? If you're not a Wolves fan, that explains everything.

7.) 14 Jun 2021 13:07:44
You've been rumbled demon. Christ, you must be bored? Has WBA found their new manager yet?

8.) 14 Jun 2021 13:19:01
Thnks Ed001 I realised now why the posts had gone.

Oxley I see perfectly clear what you are saying.

demon I'm hoping/ praying your gut feeling is wrong.

Arddunby can't argue with what you say.

9.) 14 Jun 2021 18:06:37
Ah Demon the light of these pages so positive he is.

10.) 14 Jun 2021 18:50:57
Deep Throat mate Demon isn't a Wolves fan he has been rumbled by a few on here now.



19 Apr 2021 10:51:25
No rumours floating about?


1.) 19 Apr 2021 11:26:10
Most likely be linking Nuno to the vacant Spurs job. Same when Arsenal sacked Unai Emery. Could the allure of working with Matt Doherty again be too strong for Nuno to resist? :)

2.) 19 Apr 2021 13:45:01
Nice 1 Debbie,
I wonder if the man up the tree in Compton will be there this summer?
Nuno to spurs won't happen imo.

3.) 19 Apr 2021 17:32:40
They won't go for Nuno as they want a manager who will bring exciting attacking football. Mourinho was all about shape and solidity and, let's face it, so is Nuno.

4.) 19 Apr 2021 18:07:35
If Spurs were not happy with Mourinho and his 1.6875 goals scored per match, Nuno's record is well behind with exactly one goal per match, plus a much worse goals conceded record. However, I'm very grateful to have Nuno at Wolves but I recognise that his tactics are very negative. Nuno to Spurs? Not a chance.

5.) 20 Apr 2021 13:39:42
If Nuno goes to Spurs will he want to send Doc back to us?

We are top ten premier league this season.
Everton are safe and premier league next season.

For me personally as outsider to Everton it would of been tragic for the game if a club like Everton were to of been relegated.

I am pleased we will pitting our wits agasint Everton again next season.




18 May 2022 08:35:12
Wolves it's madness,madness
I call it madness,
But this is madness then i'm filled with gladness,
It's going to be rougher,
It's going to be tougher,
And I'm not (?)gona be the one to suffer.

All that's left of these dreams I hold.
Is a band of gold.

Get Sunday out the way phil and it's the next exciting (?) Phase. No matter what we'll still be a band of gold mate.

2.) 18 May 2022 16:04:28
Yes Abbey mate we all are old gold always.



12 May 2022 14:27:15
Whoo hoo my brother is giving me his ticket for the game Saturday agaisnt Norwich.??


1.) 12 May 2022 16:27:10
Think you’ll find it’s Sunday

2.) 12 May 2022 16:47:48
Thanks Ron for pointing it out to me.

I assumed it was Saturday I told my brother earlier it was Saturday I just spoke lucky for me my brother said I can still have it.


3.) 12 May 2022 17:11:31
Enjoy it Phil,shout us on

4.) 12 May 2022 18:13:12
Will do greyleg mate and I will enjoy it the highest amount I possibly can.



12 May 2022 08:30:24
Im not disheartened it could/should of been double figures for city.

They were awesome.

The fitness the closing down everytime city have the ball they look like they have 3 extra players on the pitch and the same when they don't have the ball.

Their fitness levels are the highest coupled with the best skillful players in every position along with the one of the if not the best manager in the world.

We aren't as bad as some suggest.
Painful as it is to get walloped at home there will be brighter times ahead.


1.) 12 May 2022 09:01:19
You are so right Phil, City players so comfortable on the ball so much movement around them so many options, they are constantly moving which yes gives the impression of having more players on the pitch,you just have to admire their performance
as much as it hurt us

2.) 12 May 2022 09:08:03
Agree Phil, its to early to draw conclusions on the season but I think Bully mentioned earlier we lack depth, ultimately that will enable clubs like City with often 2 top players competing for each position to rotate players leading to the whole squad probably having higher fitness levels. De Bruyne is also one of the outstanding players of his generation.

3.) 12 May 2022 10:18:26
We also had to admit Brentford, Palace, Brighton and Leeds were better than us on the day as they walked away with the points, nine times this season we’ve been unlucky and/or outplayed at Molineux.

4.) 12 May 2022 10:42:27
Agree Ron,
And understand clearly your posts throughout the season.

The picture on my brothers face when he walked through the door last night when he got back from the match said it all.

5.) 12 May 2022 10:58:28
I thought we played better than in recent games and it felt like the crowd agreed. Could still hear them singing at the end unlike against Brighton when most had left early. Also it looked to me like we set up with 4 at the back and chiquinho filled in where needed. I think Gomes and Mosquera need a run out though, boly and I hate to say it Coady looked too slow.

6.) 12 May 2022 12:18:31
I'd hoped for better last night but realistically we got a predictable result. They are a very good team bought with a vast amount of money. Not overly jealous that would be pointless. We have suffered for two years with a lack of investment so we have no strength in depth we all know that. If you had offered me our current position in the league at the start of the season I would have grabbed it! We have had a number of highs that raised our expectations but I just hope for better next season with the addition of some quality!



07 May 2022 19:55:38
Lowest we can finish the season is 11th.


1.) 07 May 2022 20:52:18
I'm not sure that is correct Phil?

2.) 07 May 2022 20:55:38
We’re going to Europe Phil and you promised to sit naked on the horse if we do.

3.) 07 May 2022 21:17:25
Palace have to play Villa so not sure both can pass us.

4.) 07 May 2022 21:17:42
Im wrong forgot about Leicester Newcastle.
E I will sit on the OS

5.) 07 May 2022 21:23:14
Can we really finish above West Ham with our last games?

6.) 08 May 2022 06:30:14
West ham have Brighton and City to play, yes we can do it, of course it means taking points off City, (which I dreamily believe we will) but yes Europe is still to be chased.

I remember a few times watching MGW that season for us,i saw him making good runs looking for the one two and didn't get the return pass which I saw him looking very frustrated.
But this pre season under new manager Lage MGW was integural part of our plans.
A bit of a head scratcher for me is MGW wanted by our club does MGW want to knuckle down and make his name first on the team sheet or does he want to ply his trade somewhere else.

Maybe MGW must play the role he has done for Sheffield United this season for him to want to stay with us.

19 May 2022 19:09:03
Whether or not MGW is good enough for the premier we have a very good asset who is making noises after a really good return in the championship with assists and goals 23 combined I believe.
I like to think we will give him the chance next season.
If we sell for whatever the reason we will receive some decent money.

Whang will he have a better season next season?
We had been tracking him for the last 2 years before we got him surely he will be in the squad next season so is MGW any worse than Whang?

Vert interesting very intriguing our not too distant future will be.

We've had some good performances in the last 10 games Watford,Villa Leeds, Everton and the 2 games agaisnt Arsenal.
We should/could of beaten Arsenal twice and the sending off of jiminez agaisnt Leeds cost us the 3 points.
This is never relegation form even with the collapse starting away at Newcastle.
A mixed bag our last 10 games.
