Former journalist from the South-West (on Twitter) reckons the Scott transfer saga has taken a move forward with a Wolves offer of a package approaching £25m. Good vibes on the player front but if this is real then he refuses to rule out a Bournemouth intervention (Steve-o).

Well we are certainly in trouble if a player chooses Bournemouth over us.Highly unlikely unless he's a beach babe.

2.) 20 Jul 2023 00:11:12
Percy of Telegraph tweeted deal done for 25m plus 7m add ons. This being the second time I've seen the deal reported Romano tweeted "here we go" a couple of days ago. I hope this time it's really done. JL must be very sure this young man is worth it!

3.) 20 Jul 2023 02:03:21
That was a fake Percy account Ken mate, I saw the rumour still a nes posted and the person who posted it is apparantly very reliable, well trusted by the Bristol City fans.
I've had a slow day rumour wise today as had to replace the motherboard in my pc which was fun.

For what it's worth, not a lot granted, on my way to my hosp appt literally just now I met a contractor coming in. Spotting my wolves logo he exclaimed in broad west country accent, "you just bought our best player". I said not yet your asking to much to which he replied he's coming to you and you've got a he'll of a bargain. Local talk in Bristol or something we don't know?

5.) 20 Jul 2023 09:28:11
Morning Abbeywolf.really good bit of a rumour!
Sadly the days seem to have gone when some posters did seem to have an insight into the Club's business.
Now we all seem to rely on are social media posts for our information.
This was interesting to read.thanks!

6.) 20 Jul 2023 10:16:01
Rated. Well how about that, gosh we could have any player we like now!
I must admit that if JL is totally sold on this lad why don't they just pay the money because it's obvious they won't sell for less! If they lose him JL won't be best pleased.

7.) 20 Jul 2023 10:48:49
Might be wrong old wulf but I think Scott started at Bournemouth. That could be a breaker if he's family down there.

8.) 20 Jul 2023 12:23:37
He’s from Guernsey, so Bournemouth is about as close as he could get to be near family!

9.) 20 Jul 2023 12:54:44
Best to put in a final offer for Scott and move on if it doesn't bear fruit.

10.) 20 Jul 2023 13:34:55
I believe it was Southampton that let him go when he was younger.

11.) 20 Jul 2023 18:58:58
Apparently he trained with both Southampton and Bournemouth before joining Bristol Ken.

12.) 21 Jul 2023 15:07:08
Abbey. I bow to your greater knowledge. I'd read somewhere that he was at Southampton and I didn't read any more!
Wish they'd either sign him or move on quickly to get the squad together.



07 Jul 2023 07:14:44
Wolves are noted as having an interest in Valentin Gendry who is currently playing for Lecce in Serie A.
Whether or not this one has any legs right-back is a huge weak area and needs at least one good addition this close-season.

Looks like a reasonable prospect.

Even more interesting he's a RB - Nelson Semedo needs competition

3.) 08 Jul 2023 07:17:29
Sorry Debbie, for me, Semedo needs replacing, too inconstant, doesn't show passion and his forward contribution is pathetic (1 goal and 0 assists in 3 seasons!)

Who'd ever would have thought it a defender not scoring goals.

David Ornstein has said that we have turned down 35m euros for Max Kilman from Napoli and won’t look at offers below 40m euros.

2.) 04 Jul 2023 09:09:14
I have to say I don't get this one at all! Now we are saying we want £35m for Kilman which seems stupidly cheap for a player of his qualities?! I honestly don't believe we can replace him with someone even as good for that money?!

Rumour doing the rounds that Ciquinho suffered an ACL injury yesterday. I hope this is just a sick joke.

Still a NES

1.) 10 Jul 2022 10:22:14
Apparently so NES.if it is acl could be out for the season ?

2.) 10 Jul 2022 10:31:13
Yes true season over before it’s started
Best wishes to him for a quick recovery.

3.) 10 Jul 2022 10:58:38
Absolutely awful news for Chiquinho. Given 200% in every minute he's been in a Wolves shirt this feels a terrible reward for his efforts, but hopefully young enough to make a full recovery. Would like to think it gives a chance to someone else, but other than Traore not sure who.
Feeling that the £44m paid for Kalvin Phillips shows what we should have been asking for Neves. But if we sold him not sure how we would have used the money.

4.) 10 Jul 2022 12:27:58
Great shame for the lad, hope he can come back fit and strong after the operation. Another lesson about wisdom of a small squad so early in the new season. At your we have time to deal with it.

5.) 10 Jul 2022 13:37:17
Really sad news for the lad I thought he was going to make the team this season.



10 Jul 2022 06:05:48
I’m hearing mixed rumours on whether or not Mario Vuskovic, the young Croatian defender, is about to arrive from Hamburg for a medical. No confirmation from reputable sources yet and apparently he played for his club yesterday.

Still a NES

1.) 10 Jul 2022 07:40:08
NES, Transfer market rumours are rating this one as an 83 percent probability, so the rumour may have some credibility.
As for timescales, no idea.

2.) 10 Jul 2022 07:44:54
The really sad thing is the Recruitment team under Shi and Sellars have had months to create a "hit list" of players preferred.
In the last 4 weeks you sense no rumours have had any substance.
If they are still scratching around, desperately trying to sell players no one wants, or sign players requested by Lage, we are in serious trouble.
The Club needs change at the top. Fosun, do realise what is happening to this part of your empire?!

3.) 10 Jul 2022 08:13:48
Rugeley, as much as I doubt our transfer team I think they based their planning around selling Neves for £60M, thus generating funds.
The fact that he looks like he is likely to stay (so far) has blown plan A. That means we are probably reduced to hunting around for sub £10M players which will mean more younger ones imo

4.) 10 Jul 2022 08:42:29
We are where we are,think deep down we all knew we had to sell to buy in this window.
Last season was a season off two halves, first half good second half poor.
Ok we have lost half a dozen or more squad players Saiss the only regular starter.
Currently and I pray it stays that way we currently still have the jewel in the crown
MGW must be retained Traore must be refocused and give us another season.
A filly Fit Neto and Mosquera and suddenly the squad is arguably a little stronger than the one that started the last campaign, add to that the emergence of the likes off Toti,Cundle,Bueno,Campbell,etc we may be not to far away from a decent campaign, add a couple of loans and you know what things could be a whole lot brighter.
For me the key is keeping Neves,MGW and Traore
Off to take another happy pill,they seem to be working ?

5.) 10 Jul 2022 09:18:37
@The Realist ????

6.) 10 Jul 2022 09:39:33
Totally agree with that Realist and of course we need to avoid injuries that might really stretch a tight squad.

7.) 10 Jul 2022 11:52:31
Realist and NES - As I have written several times over the past week or so we will have the opportunity to benefit from a fit/motivated/returning Neto/Podence/Traore for the full year. Note last year between them they played less than 3,000 minutes {90* 38=3420}.
Whilst many of you don't rate Traore as I do surely we all agree that having all 3 back available is a massive uplift over last year's v disappointing options and thus despite all the gloom and doom re new signings and the realisation ( surely again we all agree) that we won't be as tight defensively given the changes that have occured we are not in as bad as shape as perhaps some believe.
Whilst I doubt we can hang on to 10th I would hope that we would still be well clear of the relegation battle in perhaps 13th?
Given no investment for 3 years that is a very positive situation and a tremendous tribute to where we were and the direction we were going before Seville.

8.) 10 Jul 2022 12:07:55
TFIOG it's not about if we rate Adama or not it's the fact that he really doesn't want to be here. In that situation it does more harm than good keeping an unhappy player who won't put the effort in. I for one hope he realises that to get a move he needs to show why he deserves one and puts himself in the shop window but that's upto him

9.) 10 Jul 2022 12:59:52
To retain your status in the Premier league it's about, among other things, progression, not standing still and having a credible plan on the pitch, and a squad capable of competing at the high level. At the moment we seem to be sleep walking into big issues that we not not be able to recover from. Lack of investment in the team is the most important of all, and we are doing such a poor job of recruiting and selling, a few posts have listed the players we have, but as the latest news shows not a single squad in the league goes through without sustaining injuries,if we are not prepared for that then we may be in trouble. I see the words 'hope' in sentences, do we really want to go into the season hoping we are not involved in a relegation battle? that is not how we should be looking ahead, we should be hoping we get into the top six! Did I not read after the january transfer window that Shi said the money was there but we just couldn't complete the deals? so given our additional funds from the season end where is it? sorry to be doom and gloom but just being realistic and as others have said it would be nice for the club the engage with the supporters with some honesty.

10.) 10 Jul 2022 13:23:54
Exactly the point I made a week ago STH.
Where has the money gone?
It seems Jeff and Co are taking the whatsit!

{Ed002's Note - What money?

11.) 10 Jul 2022 13:30:49
Is MGW really a jewel in the crown?
By all accounts he wants out and half a decent season in the championship ain't saying he's going to cut it in the premier league, I say get rid and reinvest, same goes for traore aswell, he wants out then get him sold.

12.) 10 Jul 2022 13:54:35
As often the case I agree with you TFIOG.
I think our forward line could be strong without too many changes (there has been rumours about a young Chilean wing arrival (Dario Osorio?) which could come to fruition with the Chiquinho injury).
My attitude is that I would retain Neves, MGW and Adama for another year and accept any diminution in sales value (full diminution in the case of Adama likely to be £10m - £15m). If MGW has a good season I don’t see why he wouldn’t still be worth £20m in 12 months’ time and my guess is that Barcelona will look to rip us off with Neves whether it’s now or next year.
Therefore let’s build on what we have and certainly the strategy of keeping the payroll in check is apparent.
I can’t see a massive amount being spent under my assumptions.

13.) 10 Jul 2022 21:56:26
NES - hardly surprising to say I agree.
If we sell Neves, Traore and to a lesser extent MGW and don't trade well the diminution in value of the players will be nothing compared to the diminution of revenues earnt by the club as we drop down the league.
Keeping them potentially buys us another 12 months to sort out our problems!
With a fair wind we could remain in lower mid table this season but - as we saw for most of the 2nd half of the last season - we are not that far away from more serious issues.
South Banker you are obviously correct about dressing room unity - a real strength of the club over past few seasons and we saw the problems a lack of it caused in the 2nd half of last season when there apparently was discontent in the dressing room -was the discontent because of the defeats or defeats because of the discontent?
However whilst it is clear Traore doesn't want to be here no one in the squad or the management have ever intimated he is anything other than a consumate pro who will always give his best - people forget or conveniently ignore the fact that for a period in the 2nd half of 20-21 he put the club on his shoulders and almost single handedly kept us up!
Plus he will as you say need to play well to get the new club/contract he wants.
Of course if we were being inquisitive we could ask why doesn't he want to be here - it clearly isn't money he is being offered a kings ransom so what is it?
I obviously have no contact with him or his agent and therefore can only postulate. However it seems to me that perhaps like many on here and virtually everyone on the "forum" he has been unhappy with the direction the club has been moving post Seville.
My views on this are well known and STH please don't read my "hope" as complacency but just realism.
We do still have some strong premier league quality players and I "hope" that they will keep us safe in lower mid table this year. However I cannot deny that as you identify there are major issues that have been obvious to those willing and able to see since Seville that not only have not been addressed but are now escalating and will reach critical levels in the not too distant future - hence my comments of safety are limited to this season!

14.) 11 Jul 2022 18:33:58
Good thread guys, pretty much agree with all of it tbh. I would totally understand all who say sell Traore but but what I do know is that while he's at the club he never does anything but his best! You could see by the reaction of the players in the last game he played when they thought he'd scored. They don't do that for a player who's not trying or unpopular. If you want him gone that's fine but respect those who don't!

Firstly, apologies for not posting my amateur analysis of games/players recently. I am extremely grateful for your complimentary comments. I recall you were also very kind when we signed RAN on a structured deal in line with the deal I had proposed. With hindsight sadly it looks like it might have been a very smart move. Shame we didn't go down the same route with Fabio, Guedes and others!
Secondly, apologies for not responding to this thread earlier. I am not on holiday although I am off to Zimbabwe with my son next month but was thinking how best and if I should reply to it
Finally despite having thoroughly enjoyed my interactions with both the contributors - the bulls and bears, those that agreed with me and those that didn't [I learnt a lot from you all and would pay special tks to Norfolk - hope it was you - who taught me that hyperbole doesn't emphasise the message but loses it - shame a few politicians, economists, journalists and indeed people in general haven't learnt that lesson as well} - and most of the Eds who on the whole do a magnificent job, I have to tell you that I am taking a break from posting over the summer and in August will sign up with the Forum, an alternative site and post there instead.
I wish you all well and hope that next season's topics of conversation are far more positive.



04 Mar 2023 10:00:00
My prediction today is 1-0 to Wolves.
We need a positive reaction after Wednesday but if it’s all out attack Spurs are well capable of picking us off on the counter.
Therefore JL needs a formation that will let us keep things tight with the match being settled by a Neves wonder goal!

1.) 04 Mar 2023 11:27:42
Lets hope the fans can get behind the team today, we need everyone giving there all including some of the players, 4 wins and a couple of draws will hopefully see us safe but not going to be easy.

Need to start performing, 1 point and 1 goal in the last 3 games is relegation form.

With Tierney as referee and the Villa fan on VAR (Mason), surely there’s an argument for fielding the youth team on Saturday and preparing the first team for the Bournemouth match. Otherwise if Liverpool players dish it out we’ll suffer injuries and if we dish out we’ll suffer red card suspensions.

I suppose you can talk it up and down every which way, the Manager can set up what he thinks is his best team and we can all hope for a competent referee.

The important thing, however, is how the players apply themselves and perform on the day, it really is down to them now.

Lost my dad 2 months ago and my thoughts on the likely Wolves team for the Bournemouth game was pretty much the last thing I said to him whilst he was awake. He would have been chuffed to see 3 Wolves wins over Christmas and I’m sad he didn’t see that or remotely anything resembling it for many many years.
My thoughts are with Mario in the coming days.

That’s 2 summer windows ruined by Nunes.
We seemed to wait an eternity last year for him to decide to join us (we seemed to prefer him over Palhinha) and this year had this deal been sorted weeks ago we could have snapped up Scott. Fabrizio Romano said that there would be transfer action on the Nunes front late in the Window (he said it several months ago).
I have to say that’s 12 months where this player doesn’t seemed to have cared less about our club. Opportunist!

Fascinating information Jas and in my opinion absolutely plausible.
Looking at a proposed Nunes sale in the region of 50 million euros would only see the club show a slight profit after Porto’s 10%, agents’ fees and after comparing versus his amortised asset value after 1 year. We would obviously save > £8m amortisation for the current financial year along with his salary.
So what’s the point of selling Nunes to weaken a weakened squad? The main effect of his sale is to remove a large liability from the balance sheet.
£35m ish of contractual amortisation liability gets turned into cash / debtor.
Therefore I don’t buy the FFP thing just as I didn’t buy it on the night Fosun tried to spoon feed to Liam Keen and the press their alleged fact that we couldn’t bring in any players due to FFP.
Was there perhaps a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ with Nunes to let him go after 12 months? There has been persistent rumours in the press running over many months that he would go to Liverpool in this Window. Also Fabrizio Romano stated at the start of the Transfer Window to look out for Nunes news toward the end of the Window. Shocking stuff whatever the cause of this likely transfer (with insufficient time to action effective replacements) and this Transfer Window for our club is now bordering on the realm of gross negligence.

In my humble opinion it’s all about having respect for your fellow posters and Eds (and vice Versa).
Some posters or Eds have access to more information than others and in my opinion they should respect those with less information. The site in my view is to disseminate that information for those of us who have less information. I have made my thoughts known to the powers that be and they have chosen not to publish them.

Absolutely disappointed that the club’s ambition does not match the ambition of a top-class manager.

Thanks TFIOG, I’ll watch ‘Strictly’ on catch up on the basis of that tantalising description ?
The evidence from Bournemouth fans that I have heard is that GON will try to chop and change playing styles and formations tailored for each opposing team.
That said, he may have changed, matured or developed over the last 6 months and just stick with a winning formula. The word was that he had no set playing style that the Bournemouth fans could ascertain and no DNA or progression through his tenure. I think it’s fair enough to have the ability to adapt and we need to be able to unlock defences where poorer teams than City come to Molineux and do the type of smash and grab that Bournemouth did to Wolves last season.
As regards next Sunday I think we could do worse than try to keep things tight again and don’t provide the space for Villa to run in behind us and in the channels as Watkins is the ‘in-form’ attacker in the Premier League right now.
Saturday was a great result and performance but I still wonder what might have passed had Dawson not been so alert from the get-go on Saturday. A point would be fantastic and set us up for a contented international break.

To be honest Phil there was enough encouragement from the first half performance to nullify my doom-laden post. Certainly very unsure about the substitutions though at the time did support Doc coming on to beef up the right hand side.
The hope is we can get 3 points next week and progress there after ?

I think there have been several over reactions over the last few weeks.
We weren’t Top 6 contenders after the United match and it’s not automatic relegation after losing to a very good Brighton team (thankfully we only have to play them twice per year). The reality is somewhere in between where we have players and a first team with a bit of potential who need to play well as a team and do the hard work required in this league.
For me, the worst thing about Saturday was losing Nunes for next week. The lads we have need to play with discipline and if GON does nothing else but instil that in his first months, he will have made a useful start to his tenure.
