As Arddunby implied in an earlier post the jury is still out on Trincao.
Let's suppose he puts a shift in between now and the end of the season, Wolves make Europe and he is the difference, as I believe he was against Chelsea.
Do we keep him, Traore back or not?
Given that Wolves will pay those kinds of wages to get next level players anyhow it'll be more about value for money than anything.
As I expected Shi has said that, yet again, any ground developments are on the back burner so they can focus on the team development, probably to facilitate those kinds of wages.
Personally, I think he would shine in Europe and help eliminate the risk of Traore being re-introduced, who I think most would agree needs to go.

Longmyndwolf the other day I was suggesting getting rid of both adama and trincao but thought trincao would do well else where. Yesterday trincao came on and did very well. Chinquino caught my eye more though and if it wasn't for trincaos goal, he'd be getting more praise. If we were starting with either which would we start with?

Well first thing to say is I'm not an accountant but have been crunching a few numbers. If the assumed numbers are correct Traore signed for approx £18m at £40k per week on a 5 year contract. That represents a total outlay of approx £2m per year times 5 for wages so: £18m + £10m = £28m or about £5.6m per year. That will be written off at the end of next season. So we could probably afford to sign Trincao on a 4 year contract at approx £5m per year or £100k per week based on getting Traore off the books quickly or a straight swap. Based on a years commitment already at £130k per week or £6.5m per year (in addition to Traores commitments) the deal would come down to signing for 4 years and shouldn't increase the clubs cost base significantly. However a transfer fee and high wages just has to be out of the question as would keeping both for a season at current salary levels. If the club decides Trincao can offer something to the club it seems an interesting dilemna for the management team. However as I said I'm not an accountant so happy for anyone with more knowledge to expand the disscussion.

If Moutinho goes end of season that'd free up another £100kp/w in wages too.

Tough question Abbey, like you I like the look of Chiquinho, he should definitely get more time on the pitch. However, if Trincao has clicked and we finish up with both, that as Managers say is a nice problem to have. I'd like to see more of Trincao 'doing more' before commenting on that one.
The maths look sound Arddunby but I think Wolves wage bill will rise significantly anyway, irrespective of Trincao/Traore debate, it will have to to attract the players we need. I think Wolves will start to bring in older more established players a bit more now to achieve the top 6 step up and they command higher wages.

Yesterday's performance showed in my opinion that saiss is a liability we no longer need.
Yes, he's been class for us for the last 5yr but is not good enough going forward.
We have enough cover in toti and mosquera to free up his wages for a new addition.
I wish him well but yesterday must surely be his last game in the old gold.
