Playing devils advocate
Sell Traore
Bring in Douglas Costa and Christian Erikson
As a manager what would you do?
As a super agent what would you do?
Just saying 🤙.

Agree0 Disagree0

So you lose £60kish from the wage budget and replace it with an extra £500k a week?! I get ya idea but I think you need to try playing the accountant before advocate! 👍.

24 Jan 2021 18:08:49
I've just read an article suggesting those two will be signed. Good players but would want astronomical wages.

24 Jan 2021 18:19:33
Desperate times seek desperate measures.
We can’t have paid 35 million for Fabio without expecting a favour back from somewhere.

Bully’s Boy
The accontant will be sharpening his pencil if we go down:

24 Jan 2021 19:20:10
Eriksen is old and Costa supposedly hasn't been as good as he was and that's not even getting into how much of a waste in wages it would be.

24 Jan 2021 19:31:50
Funny reading above posts. Good banter. Would I swap Traore for Eriksson and Costa? Don't think I would. I think we're done with signing kids for a while but then signing overpaid players that are past their best as an alternative is not the way forward either. Somewhere in between would be nice. 🤣.

24 Jan 2021 19:40:26
Sharesum - spot on! Fingers crossed the club thinks the same.

24 Jan 2021 19:41:43
Good banter Traore it is then
So playing devils advocate
Nuno or Rafa Benetez.

24 Jan 2021 19:44:08
Lingard on loan and Cantwell on a perm.

24 Jan 2021 19:52:07
100 per cent.

24 Jan 2021 20:17:53
Yeah I agree with Shares, it's middle ground that we need not mercenaries! I think Jose will hopefully be a step in the right direction. I don't want us to get rid of Nuno but with each game I fear it will be taken out of the clubs hands. The man looks broken and having read the article on the Athletic its not hard to see why. I fear this whole situation will result in Nuno working closer to home this time next year but I hope I'm wrong.
As for Rafa no thanks, I really don't get how his credit is still so high with fans. He plays dull, statistic lead football and has never shown any passion for any club he's worked with, well not beyond his bank balance anyway! He got Newc back up BUT with a Prem quality team and seemed to get a lot of praise for keeping them up but was his team worse than Burnleys or Sheff Utds?! He certianly had far more wage budget than Dyche or Wilder has ever had the pleasure of having yet Rafa gets more plaudits?! As for signings I would take Cantwell off what others have said (as I've not seen him this season) . And I do remember him scoring well on average distance covered in a match when playing in the Prem and we could use a bit more of that right now! I don't mind Lingard but I suspect he's on a big wage compared to most of ours and I'm not sure he actually brings us much that we don't already have right now?! We need a CM and a CB for me, if peeps think Cantwell can fill the CM role then that'll do nicely. I'd sooner have Buendia but I suspect he's about double the price so unlikely 👍.

24 Jan 2021 20:20:52
For me. Keep traore. And get eriksen
And Costa, 👍👍👍👍.

24 Jan 2021 21:03:53
for the right price Traore could go, but I don't see the point in replacing him with Costa on much higher wages, he had chance to come here before but snubbed us from what I gather.
Now with a forward who seems to have to goods in the air it may help Traore pick his game up a bit, knowing he has something to aim for in the box when he beats his man.
I believe his biggest issue this year is, he has seen Doc and Jota go to bigger clubs and bigger wages, and his head has been messed with by his agent.
Him and Doc had a great partner ship on the right for us last season, be god to see him regain some of that form again with Semedo.

24 Jan 2021 21:14:26
Realist- I agree fella the accountants would be sharping their pencils in that scenario. But then imagine a scenario where we go down with both those players tied to their astronimical contacts! Forget accountants, repo men are sharpening pencils at that stage! 👍.

24 Jan 2021 21:15:50
Just share something with you all
There was a youngster playing for man city, called Tommy Doyle, I used to live next door but one to his grandad, who was Glyn pardoe, who recently passed away, really nice person and not a bad player, I remember him coming home one day with his leg in plaster after he broke it in a tackle, anyone remember who it was that tackled him?
Also in our town was Alan oakes,
And remember our keeper Michael oakes, memory lane 👍.

24 Jan 2021 21:44:41
Hi Greylegwolf
I think I remember it was a tackle with George Best, I remember Michael oaks thought he was a very decent keeper. Mike Bailey was a good friend of my neighbor I lived next door to in Gorleston Wouldn’t mind Cantwell would give our midfield a bit of zest and energy if allowed to, what do you think?

24 Jan 2021 22:17:58
Hi Norfolk your correct it was George best, remember mike bailey, sound,
Cantwell, yes he fits our bill mate.
Yes need someone dynamic in midfield
Going back to Glyn pardoe, he new I supported wolves, everytime we played at Maine rd, he brought tickets to our house, so have special place in my heart for him. 👍.

24 Jan 2021 22:40:42
Nuno over Benitez, hands down. I'll never forget how he and Lascelles handled the Shelvey racist comment ban saying it was a disgrace and that Wolves should be punished over our fans abuse of Shelvey in the following match at Molineux. He lost all credibility with me in that moment.

25 Jan 2021 09:51:16
Cantwell does seem a good call, but as other posters say wages are a key issue whoever signs. let's assume fans aren't allowed in grounds anytime soon in which case a quiet transfer window in the summer could be on the cards. Expensive assets that need selling in a firesale in the event of relegation, and I'm afraid it is possible at the moment, are going to have to be sold off very cheaply I fear.

25 Jan 2021 11:11:03
Hi Greylegwolf,
It’s really great to have these memories, I met Joe Mercer when he presented the medals after a cup final at dare I say? No I won’t . somewhere in the midlands around 1962. Went to a open day at the Mol beat West Ham I think 4-2 met some of the players great memories, all the best.

25 Jan 2021 14:40:29
No Lingard Rated mate don't want any Man Utd cast offs.

{Ed001's Note - please don't use 'Manure' to refer to Man Utd les. It originates from a line is a song that West Brom fans used to sing about the Munich Air Disaster.}

25 Jan 2021 16:07:09
Sorry Ed didn't know that won't happen again just can't stand Man U its all l hear living in Buxton.

{Ed001's Note - no worries mate, it does not seem to be widely known. I only know about it as our Man Utd editor explained it all to me.}

25 Jan 2021 18:52:03
Hi Norfolk les greyleg, Yellowstone, Sir Tatton,
My team manager as a kid was 'H' George Showell brother, that's the connection to Norman Deeley.
I posted a while back Norman Deeley took some training sessions for my team. I remember one of you guys telling me his nickname was the penguin.
Just thought it might bring fond memories to whom it may concern.
Much respect for the knowledge of elder generations. 😀.
