Morning All

Well its been a massive few days for the club. whichever camp you lie in, the fact of the matter is that Nuno has gone, no one man is bigger than Wolverhampton Wanderers, yes, we all loved him, yes he will always sadly missed and most importantly for me, he left with his reputation intact and his head held high. Good luck my friend in wherever you go next. You will ALWAYS be welcome at Wolves.
But.
Guys we have to move on. We all know that this is a monumental decision that the board are about to make. I hope that they don't rush into it, I hope they speak to a range of managers that declare an interest, whether in a job currently or not. I hope, that they listen to the people in the club with football knowledge, by that I mean Scott Sellers not Jorge Mendes. Will the new man be a Mendes client? Yes, I guess it will be. But he does have 2 or 3 good managers on his books at the moment who are not in work. If it were me, and it is going to be a Mendes client this is my order of preference -

Conceicao
Fonseca
Lage

I have absolutely no interest in Labouchi. And we shouldn't either.

Of the others, if he declares an interest, I would speak to Steven Gerrard, but we know where he wants/ will end up. So that would only be short to medium term. We need to speak to Lampard, there is a good manager in Lampard, if Wolves is the right job i'm not sure. And I have sneaky feeling he might end up down the road. And finally, we should speak to Benitez. I know that isn't universally popular, but, he will attract players, he would make us solid and most importantly, he is likely to keep us away from a relegation battle next season, which I know, deep down, many of us are fearing.
And, of course, there will be other names that we need to speak to that aren't being bandied about at the moment.
Just my thoughts on things, I know that my opinions won't be everyones cup of tea. But I look forward to hearing what you guys think.

Devoted - always and forever.

Great post Devoted. i'd agree with all of it. I've been banging on about Lampard for months. He'd certainly offer a greater goal threat in the last 10 minutes than our current midfielders too :) .

Benitez will keep us up even with a system change. A good early appointment and a productive pre-season should be the catalyst to have a real go at one or both of the cups.

Get them in as early as possible and whoever it is make sure you have it in writing the promised war chest.

Thank you Devoted - good read.
I agree this is a huge decision and should def not rushed.
If you read any of my posts you know I am a huge bear and thus a manager who can keep us safe rather than a gamble would be my short term desire. However I still do want the promised land in the not too distant future - old and torn you see - so a manager who can progress us as well please! Not a lot to ask for eh? I thought we had that in Nuno lat summer but it all went pear shaped for some reason.
A manager who can give us clout in the market, respected.
A manager that players will want to come and play for.
A manger with good links in the game who can get us access to young and established talent - either on loan or to buy (rather than just Mnedes clients)
Frankly if he plays good stuff that is a pure bonus - unlike my son the Chelsea fan I will take 38 1-0 s with a huge smile!
In fact forget everything just give us a Winner!

Good points Devoted. Your opinions are my cup of tea. The names you mention are all quite viable I believe. Rafa has a Champions League win on his CV and a very decent record at Liverpool. Lampard and Gerrard are the epitome of up and coming young coaches. However I think Wolves will go Portuguese by default, and if so I think Bruno Lage is the man. I can imagine the Wolves fans chanting Bruno, Bruno, all round the Mol. Not much different to Nuno, Nuno.?

I tend to agree with the other posters so far, The issue I have with Lampard and Gerrard is that I suspect their hearts are elsewhere as Lampard clearly demonstrated when he took the Chelsea job whilst managing a team 30 miles up yhe road from Wolverhsmpton, which makes me ask would the same happen if say West Ham came calling. Both are up and coming but I would also argue Bruno is, he has that first blip on his record but was otherwise successful at Benfica for one season and would culturally fit in with the very international Latin based working environment which seems at tbe moment to be the prominent dressing room culture at WW FC. All of the names mentioned are realistic but if we want an up and coming manager who could be deemed a safe pair of hands in terms of Prem safety campaigns I would certainly interview Eddie Howe, if and only if he showed an interest, however I suspect he may want to stay down South. As all posters have said let's not rush this and get it right.

Think we need to try and stop the exodus, which, if you believe rumours is coming,
Neves, Neto, podence, Patricio, moutinho,
That's as well as Jose,
Were going to need to sign 10 players at this rate, if true 😮😮😮😮😮.

26 May 2021 12:12:40
Well no ones buying Neto, unless they are taking him on a stretcher?! As for Podence if we can get most of what we spent I'd take there hand off, unlikely for an injury prone player. With Particio and Moutinho I would be sad to see either go but with their age let's be honest it now or next summer! As for Jose does anyone ACTUALLY think we'll miss him?! Reckon I've got a vase that could stand in and no one would notice, except that maybe the vase is more mobile! 🤣
You can say exodus I say clear out, make no mistake the club are in the driving seat in all this. The key is weather or not the car still works at the end, dream a dream and it might even go faster! 👍🐺.

Bullys Boy could I also add if we could get a decent price for Adama and a very good price for Neves I would seriously consider doing business. However this is contingent on the new manager getting better players in. I think Neves has been dissapointing but could be much better with different players around him.

26 May 2021 13:46:02
Think Neves has suffered since the Championship days, we have become more and more defensive and I don’t think it suits him. Think Arddunby is right get some forward thinking manager and players.

26 May 2021 14:21:48
Indeed Norfolk the more I think about it the more I think tinkering with the squad is not going to work it needs a radical overhaul, if its not done this summer we will be doing the job as a championship side next summer (which may happen even if we do the overhaul I hasten to add, its a gamble) . In that scenario any assets sold will be at firesale prices and also include the players we want to hold on to.

Great posts guys! Isn't it fun to speculate we know from over the last 4 years reality is we know very little and with a bit of luck one of us might have a lucky guess! Fosun always seem to be able to keep what they are doing private. I have to give them credit for that because we usually surprised at who they get. I think it will be the same this time we'll know when it happens and not before probably. So I guess we are in for a summer of surprises like last year, who saw that coming or what's happened so far though to be fair Nuno has not looked himself for a while and perhaps we should have seen it coming. I just thought he'd have a break come back make a few changes and off we'd go again. What did I know eh! Let's hope we get a good manager/ coach and he gets support. A centre back and a midfield player as a minimum but maybe some surprises hopefully more depth to the squad. They must know it's what we need. Here's hoping onward and upwards and not downwards hopefully. COYW!
