Is Thelwell leaving then?

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Feb 2020 16:14:08
Of the the MLS, wonder if he was asked to go,?

03 Feb 2020 16:27:41
He's confirmed it.

03 Feb 2020 16:47:34
The haters have got what they wanted now.

03 Feb 2020 17:35:50
If even the bloody-tea lady left people like SQ would seize on it and say Fosun has lost interest!

03 Feb 2020 18:17:15
Jez Moxey to return!

03 Feb 2020 18:54:44
Jas, that reminds me. The Fosun-haters (i. e. Baggie fans) go way back to the beginning on this site. When Moxey resigned after the Fosun takeover, some people said he knew the whole thing would go pear-shaped with Fosun, so he got out.

I'm so enjoying the rise of Wolves.

03 Feb 2020 19:32:25
Deep Throat, agreed. The reason he got out though was that Fosun knew he was limited in his ability. Jeff Shi has taken on the role Thelwell held but surely we must have someone coming in as I'm sure he took on Dalrymple's role too.

Getting rid of the deadwood.

03 Feb 2020 22:25:02
Interestingly if you read Nunos interview after Podence was tied up he suggested we could be in for one more. Well that never happened and I can't help but wonder if inability to get a striker overe then line may have been viewed as a lacking on Thelwells part? Either way personally I've never been massively impressed with him so onwards and upwards I say COYW ;)

Can't understand why some are knocking Thelwell. Look what he's done for the club. Oversaw the Academy, in the process turning them into Catergory A. Oversaw the signings of Patricio, Moutinho, Jimenez, Podence and Traore so all in all not a bad job. Hopefully whoever takes over can take us to the next level.

04 Feb 2020 09:26:29
It wouldn't of been thelwell why these players came here it would of been Nuno and uncle george.

04 Feb 2020 09:52:59
Thelwell has played his role well in taking us up to the level where we are now, i. e. knocking on the door to the top six and progressing in Europe. We've come a long, long way from the Morgan-Moxey days. This is probably the best time to be a Wolves fan since the days of Stan Cullis.

With the talent in the U23 side I can foresee greater things from us. It won't be all about big-name big-money signings, we will keep the strategy we have now. Buy shrewdly, buy young, develop from within.

04 Feb 2020 09:54:36
Really, so why did Patricio, Jimenez etc not join him at Valencia? I accept that Nuno and Mendes play a big part of incoming players but they also have to want to join a club going places. Thanks to Fosuns vision and Thelwells commitment, our ambition was elevated and made more attractive.

04 Feb 2020 10:56:05
If wolves want to compete in the champions League, we are going to have to do better than buy shrewd and young players, we would not be able to compete, we are are good side, but we have to be a great side, we do need a couple of great great players to finish teams off.

04 Feb 2020 11:38:41
To the haters Thelwell was responsible for bringing in Coady, Traore and Dendonker, he was also the one who bought in Jackett which kick started our revolution.
Also he was the one responsible for improving the acadamey, so give it a rest yeah.
Wonder who you'll blame now?

04 Feb 2020 12:54:07
Take your point Tibbsy but all great players were young and promising players once. We will in my opinion, in due course, compete in the CL with the present strategy. We will not go round like headless chickens (Man U comes to mind) spending pots of money on so-called big names like Pogba.

Man U ended up so desperate for a striker last week that they nearly brought Glenn Murray in from Brighton. Call that strategy? Where has all the squad building gone?

The only other team's strategy I admire is Liverpool's. They have sold some very big names to bank profits to get the squad they have now, which includes home grown players. For this reason Liverpool's net spend is a lot lower than you might think.

04 Feb 2020 13:04:11
Guys we can debate which signings were his and which weren't but in truth none of us will ever know. All I would say is that if he is that good why are we letting him go? And more to the point why has no one else been in for him up until now? Last question but why is it that only LA are in for him who are a team playing at a lower than Championship level?

04 Feb 2020 13:53:47
12 years with one Organisation is good achievement in this day and age.
Fosun seems to be a caring employer, but equally constantly looking to raise standards in all Departments.
I am delighted that Thelwell has found a new role and I wish him well.
Onwards and upwards. the Pack continues to strengthen.

04 Feb 2020 15:16:05
In my opinion, Telwell became the new Moxey. Just a pantomime villain.

04 Feb 2020 17:58:14
Ironically I actually agree Debs, in so much as in terms of abuse there always seems a need for a pantomime villain at most clubs (sadly) . Wonder if Jeff is feeling nervous with that in mind!

05 Feb 2020 13:25:54
Sad if Thelwell had become a pantomime villain. With everything we have achieved to get where we are today, surely everyone at Wolves is a hero not a villain?

A more likely pantomime villain is Mike Ashley at Newcastle.

05 Feb 2020 14:34:50
Just the way of the world Deep, there's always a fall guy or a boogy man that fans blame normally when transfers don't come off. United have Woodward, WHU have Sullivan and I'm sure the list goes on! Like Deba said for years it was Moxey, if it went wrong blame Jez! Sad yes but the nature of the business when you are dealing with a mob mentallity, sadly football usually does! 🙄.

05 Feb 2020 16:47:41
Sorry to see Thelwell go, perhaps an issue over only being permitted to sign Mendes clients.

05 Feb 2020 19:41:33
Jonny, Jimenez, Traore, Dendonker, Boly, Vinagre, Loiodice, Jordao and Campana. All signed since Fosun took over, none are clients of Gestifute (Jorge Mendes)

05 Feb 2020 23:05:01
Fair point Jas although the point is still valid, in so much as I wonder how much say he had in ANY of those signings? I'm not saying he didn't (for all I know they could have been his signings) BUT it certainly would make anyone want a new job if they felt their role had become little more than a glorified account organising money rather than sourcing players. If essentially he was given a list by Mendes and told to work from that then I could understand why that would rankle! I'm sure we'll find out in the years to come but the timing of this (after a window) can't be a coincidence! COYW 👍.

05 Feb 2020 23:53:39
Anyone read the article claiming that Thelwell suggested the signings of Dani Olmo and Hwang Hee-Chan only to be over ruled by Nuno who wanted Campana and Podence?

06 Feb 2020 11:49:06
Jas, I read that as well. Thelwell was apparently overruled by Nuno. If true, this is how it should be. Nuno is the ultimate expert in footballing matters at Wolves.

06 Feb 2020 11:51:19
I did not and if honest I always take articles claiming to know inner dealings of any club with a serious pinch of salt (depending on the source;) . It was well documented that we were in for Chan but the move broke down on finance, also we have been tracking Campana since the u20's South American cup. Overruled by Nuno is one thing and frankly would also be the signs of a healthy club (the manager lives and dies on signings so they should have a strong say) . Still it would be an entirely different/ more grating scenario to be overruled by someone that's not even working for the club (cough, Uncle Jorge, cough) ;)
