Review Of The Day 29th July 2021

Rumours flying around on twitter and few reports we are rivaling Everton for Joaquin Correa.

For me he would be perfect second striker behind Raul. Brilliant player coming off a great season.
The Joao Felix role makes a lot of sense for Lageball

Adama to Liverpool will more than likely involve them trying to chuck players into the deal. I don't want to loose him at all. Like the look of Harvey Elliot though.

30 Jul 2021 00:05:21
Personally I'd rather we kept Traore. I just think Lage will give him a bit more freedom and he'll show us what he can do. I think he was restricted by the tactics last season after Raul got injured.

The Correa rumour has been flying around since last week and doesn't seem to be moving forward. That may due to the player still being on holiday after the Copa America.

30 Jul 2021 11:18:53
We had two great seasons and one pretty average all be it in strange circumstances, lost one of our star players to the League Champions no less then managed to gift our Head Coach to a top six Club. As yet we haven’t strengthened from last season when only seven teams finished below us, this season is a new start and will be all about survival, the team needs two or three players with Premier League experience before the season starts and that’s if we don’t sell any more, we can’t rely on a few more youngsters coming in from abroad who may or may not be up to the task. The Premier League doesn’t stand still, it doesn’t allow Clubs to “do it on the cheap”, it doesn’t give you time to bring players in “for the future” without having some for the “here and now”, this seasons going rate for average Premiership players is between forty and fifty million, if you don’t compete, if it’s too rich for you, then you become a West Brom, a Blues or a Stoke, they all thought they could keep “getting away with it”.

30 Jul 2021 11:48:48
Agree wholeheartedly oxley, I'm hoping that once neves traore moutininho etc are resolved we'll be bringing in experience. I'm not expecting a winning start from us, but I'm hoping it'll come together and with it a top 10 finish.

29 Jul 2021 20:47:47
Phil. On the off chance that you may still be reading stuff on this page I hope thing s will get better for you and yours quickly and you will feel able to join a lot of us on here who care about you and wish you well.

future. I notice that you haven't posted for a while now and you were isolating so I very much hope that you and yours are well and not struggling with the horrible C.V.!

For Wolves three weeks to go until we meet Leicester, the noise from Jeff is deafening in it's intensity! Loads of PR and speculation but very little in the way of increasing our squad. Time to get on with it I suggest!

30 Jul 2021 11:41:14
Ken - v v kind of you to ask. We are all clear of the C.V. and I have even been working - twice this week which I am loving. I take people on walks. Its going really well. Yesterday, my client, a mum with 4 teenage boys bought the drinks at our coffe break and then handed me a wadge of cash (it was embarrassing to count it so didn't) it was obviously more than was agreed and it turned out to be considerably more than double so v v happy! .
I have quite a few walks booked over next couple of months including some corporate bookings where I can charge a lot more. All come via word of mouth and repeat bookers - people come once and then come back with other groups or colleagues or clients - many of the walks are team building exercises/ marketing events that end at the pub!
Stopped posting (and even reading as often) when I saw Phil's note. Realised that although I liked some of the posts - yours always and there was for example also an excellent one a few days ago by Abbey wolf on the need to build our commercial actiivities - I find most of them v depressing and they just make me angry so not good for my mental health.
The thread on Neves - where many of our fans stated that they thought he was rubbish (as of course was Nuno) - added to the posts over the last few months where amongst others Doherty, Saiss, Boly, Podence and of course most regularly Traore were also decribed as rubbish and should be sold for pennies so that we can reinvest pounds in a kid from somewhere exotic who they had probably only heard about before on some computer game did it for me.
I know its all about opinions but I really care if Wolves do well or not and it seems to me that places me at odds with many of our posters.
That or their opinions are wildly different to mine - guess it is the later as many are seemingly blindly loyal to Jeff Shi (NOT WOLVES! ) .
Actually I suppose it is obviously the latter. For example I said last August when it becmae crystal clear, to those able to see, that we had a bad transfer window and Moutinho's legs had gone but virtually everyone else thought we had had an amazing window - many seemingly incredibly still think that we did.
Unless things change dramtically this will be the 4th window where we have had a v modest net spend and consequently the squad is now far far weaker than it was, whilst other teams march forwards and beyond us!
I read regularly that people thought [given injuries and C.V. (? ) ] we were ok last year as we came 13th - but obviously, despite it being regulalrly explained to them, they still don't understand that for a long period of time we were clearly the worst team in the league (5 points from a run of games of over 25% of the entire season! ) and survival was due to a great (pre Jimenez injury) start, Nuno's loyalty ( how he didn't walk when Jeff publicly humilitated him last Jan is a real credit to the man) and Traore's brilliance - yes the same man that although he virtually single handedly saved our Prem place over the last couple of months of the season and is seemingly wanted by most of the major super powers in Europe is rubbish and should be sold for pennies?
I will post again once the season starts but unless we as you say "get on with it" I fear that although the squad (even the pale shadow that it once - just 18 months ago - was) should be far far too good to go down your other comment about it being self inflicted still frightens me and the fact that only you and I and to be fair a few others see that or are willing to acknowledge it frightens and depresses me even more.

29 Jul 2021 18:41:29
Jas : why you think fans who are more than a little concerned are negative? There are images and artists impressions of all the new Molineux’s that never came to fruition, we’ve had shots at the Prem a couple of times and failed, this time was supposed to be different but it isn’t, three weeks to the season and the team is not as good as three years ago when they were promoted, not being negative but some of us have seen it all before, more times than we care to remember .

29 Jul 2021 19:43:36
Disagree with you Ron regarding this time is supposed to be different, our shots at the prem in the past ain’t even close to this time, in the past we were happy to just finish 4th or 5 th from the bottom, maybe beat a top team every now and again and maybe have a nice cup run, this time we have beaten top six often even did the double over the champions one season, we finished 7th 7th and the 13th which in the past would have been a major success but now it’s a failure, we have played in Europe, lost in the quarter against the eventual winners and admittedly they were better than us on the day but we did miss a pen at 0-0 when we all know how good we were at that time at winning when ahead, we lost a semi FA cup to Watford and no one can deny we should have won that as being 2-0 up but for some reason we imploded when we were almost semi the final, we buy players from Barcelona, Porto, Milan, Benfica, sporting etc etc etc not lower league English teams anymore? No mate sorry this time ain’t nothing like before to be fair.

29 Jul 2021 19:44:25
The ground development is happening. It has just been put on the back burner due to more important things happening such as the C.V.

The money used to expand the stadium will not be part of the FFP regulations however Fosuns priorities simply lay elsewhere.

Sir Jack created a 29500 stadium and it was never filled. Steve Morgan expanded it and again, it never got filled. It is only since Fosun took over that we have had sustained success but rather than build a stadium rather than the squad, Fosun are looking to ensure that the foundations are in place.

30 Jul 2021 11:05:12
Oxley Ron is bang on in his analysis-I have been beating the same drum on this site for quite a while. It's the same old Wolves no matter who is running the club. We will do well to stave off relegation this season.

29 Jul 2021 13:40:17
It's all very quiet?

29 Jul 2021 14:49:35
In 1958 plans were unveiled to make Molineux into a 70,000 stadium but were rejected by the council.
In 2021 our owners are promoting our brand all over the world to attract new supporters.
Where are these new supporters going to sit?

29 Jul 2021 15:42:20
Probably in the Negative section of Molineux, next to you.

29 Jul 2021 15:48:58
Ooooh you are awful Jas.
But I like you!

29 Jul 2021 16:10:52
I'm only 75 odd miles away and I havnt been to molineux since being back in the prem. I'm a club member and watched every game over the lockdown period by buying subscriptions to all providers. I've contributed to feed the pack and foundation. I've bought programmes and shirts and numerous gifts. This is money directly and indirectly to the club. I'm sure a world wide market would operate on a similar basis. Times have changed since 1958, we've got multiple TV channels, social media, all day pub opening and different work patterns. In 58 70000 would realistically of been packed by pay at the turnstile fans with no other distractions on a Saturday afternoon mostly travelling by bus or on foot. 50000 today would be incredible on a TV live, Monday night game, and reliant on opposition and division. Maybe the money isn't so much in the crowd size now but the merchandise bought around the world and nation. I sit here wondering when I'll next be at the mol, and glance at my reopening honved programme from 1993 thinking then that it couldn't get better. That's life, but as soon as the away shirt becomes available my money will be in the clubs till. (As long as it bears no likeness to that blue cliudy monstrosity last year! ) .

29 Jul 2021 17:38:54
Hopefully I'll be at the celta Vigo match tho ( health permitting )

{Ed077's Note - Any health issues as such Abbey?}

29 Jul 2021 17:49:26
My new home top arrived today. better colour and material but a tighter fit than Adidas one.

29 Jul 2021 18:00:15
And it's shorter.

29 Jul 2021 18:36:40
I've got dodgy back Ed. And osteoarthritis in knees, just had an xray this week and am awaiting results. Can walk that far and don't drive so its accessing trains and getting to and from both ends. Some days good some times bad. Sitting for a half can be painful so I'll have to weigh everything up.

{Ed077's Note - I hope you start feeling better soon.
Excited for the season ahead??}

29 Jul 2021 19:26:18
Cheers Ed. It's nothing compared to others, just a chore to deal with. Yes I am excited about things although I'm abit impatient with the movements/ rumours at the mo. I think one big outgoing will spark things, I hope so because seeing/ hearing brunos ideas, speeding things up, fluidity in formation etc really makes me think we can surprise one or two. I think we're a little light experience wise, (boly moutininho seiss maybe a bit slow for what he wants) so decent recruits if we can afford them essential. It'll be a slow start and then we'll competing the top 6-7 again. I hope.! .

{Ed077's Note - I like your optimism. Long may it continue}

30 Jul 2021 10:13:52
It always does Ed. After 60 odd years following the old gold I've had to, season after season. A win over anyone is celebrated, my most notable league victory was the 5-1 over then champions Arsenal at home back in the 70s, that was optimism paying off.

{Ed077's Note - I hope you beat Arsenal 5-1 every season lol :-D}

Fosun have just announced an investment in the American e-sports team, Evil Geniuses. This values the e-sports team at $255mil. Wolves's logo will be used in Evil Geniuses' branding, etc. This must be further evidence that Fosun are thinking long-term for Wolves.

28 Jul 2021 15:28:55
Hope they are going to invest in a goalscorer for Wolves as Fabio isn’t going to score many this season, Jimenez can’t be expected to be back to his best for a while and Patrick doesn’t know if he’s coming or going.
Another centre back would also be useful and maybe full backs who can defend if we are going to play 442.

28 Jul 2021 15:45:22
Agreed Wombourn.

28 Jul 2021 17:45:56
Investing in e - sports won’t help to get more fans into Molineux or enable our U23 players of the future to play home games in Wolverhampton.

28 Jul 2021 18:54:36
I think you guys are missing the point about the Evil Geniuses investment. Ultimately such investments will increase income for Fosun/ Wolves and enhance the Wolves 'brand'.

28 Jul 2021 20:37:01
Esports offers great exposure for Fosun and Wolves it isn't a £600billion industry for no reason.

26 Jul 2021 20:26:33
A new hero is about to emerge in mosquiro. If he can perform like he did tonight in the prem we've hit the jackpot. RAN also is showing great promise. Seiss did a great job marshaling the back line. Marcel quiet and reliable. Fabio as grown immensely and has a confidence about him now as part of the pack. MGW I thought was also up to pace and looking good. In Sa we've got a dominance in the box and he looks quick with a good kick. Neves and moutininho are more forward minded. 3--2 defeat but an excellent run out and Bruno seems to have them running. Looking forward to the weekend and see how mosquiro handles the english game.

26 Jul 2021 22:44:45
Mosquero looks like he is going to be some player.
Has he any mates at Athletico Nationale who can come and join The pack?

27 Jul 2021 16:34:19
Mosquiro certainly needs some patience at times and he has a poor disciplinary record. The interesting aspect of Brunos style is the centre backs. Big Will is becoming injury prone, seiss is showing spirit in that position but maybe not enough command, kilmann is hot and cold. Where does coady fit in, will we sign a centre? Mosquiro has the presence speed and distribution but not experience. Certainly Sa is going to expect protection. Upfront can we rely solely on jiminez? While fabio as improved greatly he's still a youngster, cutrone will be off I think and that leaves us light. We havnt actually created many chances from our front two in these friendlies. So a CB and CF and an aggressive forward pushing CMF would be desirable. The styles faster the field more spacial and all looks good but we need these tweaks I feel. Thoughts?

27 Jul 2021 17:02:37
Cutrone seemed a lot more happier last night I thought, maybe Bruno has had a chat with him and told him he believes in him?
Mosquiro looks the real deal sorts out his discipline we've bagged potential a signing of the year there.
Silva is getting better, as for Coady I think he'll do well in cm his natural role offering that protection to the back 4 and if Neves stays it'll enable Neves to get more forward too.

27 Jul 2021 17:22:41
Abbey wolf- the three positions you mention are what we’ve been missing for quite a while. A dynamic midfield player is a priority and a decent striker, if Jimenez gets injured again we don’t want to be in the same situation as last season, there doesn’t seem to be any interest in Toney of Brentford or Armstrong of Blackburn we don’t look to the championship for players. Tammy Abraham is up for sale though he’ll probably go to a London club, let’s push the boat out and make a marquee signing no more wingers please!

27 Jul 2021 19:58:56
Yea exactly taff52, we've known it but why havnt fosun/ nuno/ bruno ever done anything? Sellars must be aware of it. Are we waiting for the transfer merry go round? I don't think we'll know our 21/ 22 squad until late August.

27 Jul 2021 21:11:22
It looks that way Abbeywolf let’s hope it’s a good one with a surprise or 2 👍.
