For those that say Sa is bad it could be much worse

22 Apr 2024 08:07:38
I feel for the Coventry fans this morning, should have been in the final but for VAR finding a toe interfering with play! Likewise the ref and VAR failing in their duties for Forest by all accounts. Heard Kieth Hackett giving his opinions this morning and basically bemoaning the standards of referring we've now had/got this season, and suggesting a independent VAR adjudication with intensive training. Where forest go with their complaint I don't know but two clubs have suffered big time this weekend.

22 Apr 2024 10:16:15
Not aimed at you Abbey but what exactly makes Forest SO special in all this?! We've had bad decision after bad decision this season and STILL managed to (quite rightly) steer clear of accusing the refs of cheating! I hate VAR and agree with others that I would scrap the whole thing tomoz if given the chance HOWEVER Forests reaction is beyond petulant! It was one bad call, the last call which in fairness should have been a CLEAR pen! As for the other two they were standard 50/50 calls that could ALWAYS go either way! So one bad call and they start throwing toys sorry but it's pathetic and (I suspect) just a way to try and gain a bit of traction before their appeal is heard?! Someone should show um the goal we had disallowed at WHU, that was a FAR more questionable decision than ANY made at their game! Just saying 👍

22 Apr 2024 10:48:35
Nothing special regarding forest from me bully's, I havnt even seen the appeals, I'm just reiterating how VAR is effecting teams, ourselves amongst them and costing us points too. Coventry however is harder, a rare semi final where they've pulled themselves up against a supposed top team. Utds keeper got a second yellow in the pens like villa the other night, will he be banned for the final as martinez is for the Europe 1st leg. Doubt it. I'm just fed up with it all, it happens to often. Re where forest go that was meant as an indication that there is no where to go. Its all wrapped up an it's no wonder that conspiracy theories abound.

Abbey, Premier football is a mess.
It is not just how poorly VAR is used (staggering the lack of competency amongst our top referees), it is FFP, with no constancy,
FA Cup changes which will impact on the earning potential of smaller Clubs, expansion of European Comps, Long-haul Tournaments, which disrupt pre-season planning for coaches etc etc.
Just chasing the money. The more American ownerships, the quicker the demise of our wonderful "Pyramid" system.

22 Apr 2024 11:44:09
Thing is Abbey, that toe decision was factually correct unlike a lot of VAR interferences which we have suffered from and there's also a fairly big argument against that Wan Bissaka hand ball penalty anyway.Only because of the gross incompetence of the officials (on pitch and at Stockley Park;how often do ref's stick with their original decision when going to the monitor?) I'd get rid of VAR, change the offside rule so that the foot position (and a complete foot at that) is the sole determinant and revert to deliberate hand ball only for a penalty. And, of course, pigs will fly!

22 Apr 2024 12:48:59
Hard to feel any symapthy for Forest after how they and their fans have behaved towards us, don't forget this is the same club that tried to get Podence suspended and their fans were saying nothing in the push on Semedo last week, karma comes to mind.

22 Apr 2024 13:28:41
The online technology exists to have neutral country VAR. No reason why Premier League matches should not have VAR adjudicated in Europe, and vice versa.

22 Apr 2024 14:46:53
Agree wholeheartedly old wulf, I ranted off about the cup replays earlier below. I genuinely feel for the Coventry fans tho. I've no sympathy for Forest tho, Rated, I was just moaning about decisions this season. Arteta moaned klopp moaned we've moaned now Nuno moaning but nothing changes, it's like P'ing in the wind.

22 Apr 2024 18:28:27
Only way things will change is if clubs and fans all stand together and make a stand.

21 Apr 2024 14:24:50
It's nearly that time of year again when we all think we're the manager, so who would you keep/sell/buy?

From the 1st team, I'd sell Kilman and Doherty.

I'd reintegrate into the team after their loan: Mosquera, Chiquinho and Guedes.

I'd loan out Chirewa, Fraser, Chiwome so that they get experience.

Sell Podence, Fabio, Sasa, Bolla, Hoever, Cundle and Hodge.

See if Enso is ready and add him to 1st team if ready, if not sell him because if after 2 years he hasn't adapted, he never will

I know I'll be shot down for this but if possible, buy or loan Eric Dier.

This would give us: Bueno, Bueno, Toti, Dier, Dawson, Semedo, Mosquera and AIT for defence.

Gomes, Lemina, Doyle (if bought), Traore, Bellegarde, Chiquinho in midfield.

Cunha, Guedes, Sarabia, Hwang, Neto and Gonzales in attack.

No need to break the bank and a much stronger squad.

21 Apr 2024 14:49:51
I'd sell Neto love him to bits but he can't do a full season, Silva if we can, Doherty, Guedes, Bellegarde he just isn't all that i'm afraid.
Agree with getting Dier in has experience and would fit our system nicely.

21 Apr 2024 14:53:49
Good post Jas and I must admit that I've had the same thoughts.
Not sure about Guedes, his attitude when he was here was atrocious.

21 Apr 2024 15:58:28
Guedes does not want to be at Wolves, never did in the first place, no way back for him, get rid.

21 Apr 2024 17:46:47
I'm not saying he does want to be here but if Gary can convince him that he could thrive here, I'd keep him. He's doing well at Villereal.

21 Apr 2024 18:43:02
Can't see there's any way we'd sell Doherty as he's got another year on his contract and is bound to be on more money than any other club would pay him.No way, in my view that Guedes could be integrated back into the fold and, in any case, he's a bit of a wimp and the Premier League is just too physical for him.
Unless I'm in a time warp, Enso has only been with us a year and is still only a teenager, I think, so it's very early days as yet.
Chiquinho is interesting as he was treading water with Famalicao but had an excellent end of March/ early April but his form has tailed off again. O'Neil certainly needs to take a good look at him.
We obviously need to strengthen in many areas and it's going to be an interesting summer. Don't think we'd get the money we'd want for Neto because of his issues and reckon we'll probably have him for another year and if recruitment is good you never know.
Silva should go, but who'd have him? Seems to have blotted his copybook in Glasgow.
My money is on some left field acquisitions as many well known expensive players don't seem to able to cut the mustard in WV1.

22 Apr 2024 10:06:34
Solanke of Bournemouth and Mcneil of Everton if we sold neto and ait nouri.

We would finally get that goalscorer we've craved since jiminez head injury.

18 goals for solanke this season I believe.

22 Apr 2024 11:15:02
Can't see there's any hope of either of them, Phil.Solanke would be too pricey and McNeil would probably be dependent on a Toffees relegation which seems unlikely.

22 Apr 2024 12:33:04
One can dream Old Wulf👍

22 Apr 2024 19:34:34
Well we've already sold RAN to both Liverpool and Man City according to media reports.

22 Apr 2024 22:01:37
Likewise, Kilman will be turning out for Newcastle and Spurs next season while Neto will be running down the wing for Liverpool and Arsenal.

21 Apr 2024 13:06:40
So it’s been stated on here earlier by Jas that it’s not the clubs fault for all our injuries and I agree with that, however I would also add, if we had invested in 4-5 more players who added quality we could have rotated the squad more, and maybe cut down on the amount of injuries we have, especially from overplaying and pushing out players too much. In that case it is the clubs fault.

21 Apr 2024 13:37:27
A few things. If we had invested in the additional 4-5 players we'd be facing a points deduction and also maybe retained JL to satisfy his ego and sweet shop mentality. Yes the squad is much too thin and this should hopefully be recognised by the hierarchy and corrected in the summer where we'll be in a much stronger negotiating position. Finally we can't just blame Wolves for overplaying our players, remember all the African/Asian cups, international friendlies etc where our players are flying all over the world, different time zones etc. All this takes it's toll too. Hwang hasn't looked the same player since he came back.

22 Apr 2024 17:51:03
Vbwolf, we need more income to do that.

No problem with tonight's performance and result. I'm much more disappointed at Worcestershire's bad day against Durham at Kidderminster. Up the Wolves, up the Pears.

21 Apr 2024 07:12:10
I think a better performance than most expected, considering the patched up team.
Some individual performances to take comfort in.
Bueno some good blocks, interceptions and clearances
Joao Gomes getting better and better. A great midfield effort. Plenty of tackles, carried the ball, driving through the centre constantly
Traore thought he had a great game.
Doyle first half particularly, was the leader on the pitch. Excellent distribution
Chirewa a very good start to his career!
So well done Coaching Staff in shuffling a restricted "Pack"!

21 Apr 2024 13:21:02
Full credit to GON for a highly creditable result against all the odds. Under a previous coach we might have been embarrassed. If Gary gets the support he deserves in the summer, we may be challenging for Europe next season. I've mixed emotions about the Wembley semi today, as we should be been there, but with just ten fit outfield players it would not have been fair on Gary. Wembley can wait.

21 Apr 2024 18:54:16
I feel exactly the same Deep,
But feel better with Coventry's display nearly winning it from being 3 nil down.

20 Apr 2024 23:22:22
Always going to be difficult. 2-0 flattering scoreline considering the amount of possession and shots at goal by Arsenal. The depth of the two squads was evident, no comparison when you look at the substitute bench. It would be good if Wolves can win their next two home games.

21 Apr 2024 07:10:15
Doubt we will Lindsay as the amount of injuries we now have to key players is unsustainable. 10 players available is frankly shocking.

This coming window will be pivotal
for me.

21 Apr 2024 08:26:50
Hold my hand up., I didn't expect a performance like that considering the circumstances, so well done the players, proves we are together
Regarding recruitment. I believe it when I see it and if we get any players, never mind who we would like

20 Apr 2024 21:44:50
Thought the lads did well all things considered, first goal was a fluke goal, second a rebound.
Given our injury situation the lads out there played well and can hold their heads up high.

20 Apr 2024 22:38:30
Too right.

21 Apr 2024 13:05:57
Sa. near post again. it was a patricio failing aswell.must be a portugese keeper thing.fair performance but we wer never going to score anyway

20 Apr 2024 20:28:35
Not a bad first half but it’s so obvious we have no outlet in the final third. Sa has also given me a heart attack on three separate occasions when passing it to Doyle when he had two men on him! Nothing to lose 2nd half. Let’s push on and frustrate them. Unlucky Gomez, would have scored on a different day.

20 Apr 2024 21:42:38
Far far better than I imagined we would be. As you say Vbwolf we obviously had little up front chirewa who I thought did well, was looking a couple of times but we wernt going to risk it. Some poor knocking around at the back and Sa always concerns with his taps around. Some good positioned saves and then let's his near post open at the end. 2-0 rather flattered them in the end. Better than expected, let's see what we can muster against bournmouth.

20 Apr 2024 11:27:38
Tonight is not going to be pretty so trying a old tactic as most times I bet on a team other than us winning they lose.
So going 9-0 to Arsenal, Saka first scorer, 3+ corners each half, 40+ booking points at 350/1

20 Apr 2024 15:10:49
Would have thought you'd get a wolves win for those odds rated lol. Seriously I'm getting more confident about a decent showing tonight anything would be a bonus, even only 3-0 would be a result. Hope your bet dosnt come off of course but if it did at least I'd be happy knowing you'd got the dosh. But COYW.

20 Apr 2024 20:24:08
Not too concerned after that first half, shame their sliced goal went in at the time it did but if we've got 30 mins of RAN sarabia and lemina I think we could get back into it. Arsenal do look tired. Chirewa doing well after early nerves. COYW
