Reports coming out of Arsenal fan journals that Arsenal have put the price for Maitland-Niles up to 25 million.

Time to walk away. He's had a couple of decent games, so what! They either want to sell or they don't. He hasn't suddenly become a 5 million better player.

We can get better value abroad.

Agree0 Disagree0

Honesty he isn't worth 25 but 20 was a bargain and we went in low ball 5 mil under and got are arses kicked.

We will need English players moving forward at some point.

It's not good with Doc leavimg now.

Ooops- Wasn't the idea to replace Doherty with AMN?
Doesn't sound like we have manged this particularly well so far does it?

If it is going to cost us £10m+ to do so that is significantly more than we would have paid Doherty over the remainder of his contract. (I suspect Spurs can only offer him a large uplift in his salary as he will given a share of the saving they have made on the discounted price - Spurs are saving say £15m+ on his true price - under two two thirds of that are required to fund a doubling of his wages)
Add in AMN wages (say 40k per week a modest uplift on his current 30k - frankly I think we will end up paying more but. ) and we will be circa £7m out of pocket over the 3 years left on Doherty's contract - all to weaken the team?
More worryingly how many more of our players will tell their agents they want to move to a new club who will double or even treble their their wages. However the increase is conditional on the buying club being able to fund that wage increase by Wolves accepting half or one third of market value for the transfer fee.
How do we say "no" now that precedent has been set - we could have a lot of unhappy players on our hands- so not great again!

So yes we will be buying overseas and maybe not just for a RB!

However with only a few days left to the start of the new season I sincerely hope the target (s) is/ are arriving on Monday!

I still have faith in Nuno and as people have said he has done more than enough to deserve that faith but it has been knocked and its going to have to be some rabbit he pulls out of the hat now!

Fingers crossed!

I'm beginning to wonder if we're not signing anyone
If it is the case. Will Nuno leave?
Concerning times, for everyone at minute. surely we should AV signed players by now.

30 Aug 2020 07:15:10
As right backs we currently have Oskar Burr, Sanderson and Luke Matheson. Burr is playing in the U23's is he not good enough, Sanderson excelled at Cardiff and Matheson was only purchased in the last transfer window only young but why buy him if he is not good enough?
And I am as confused as everyone else about Doherty for £15m.

30 Aug 2020 10:38:34
We have someone coming in for sure. No club would be that inept at this level to leave a gap that big without the insurance of players coming in to replace what we loose. The ones we have are prospects Mathieson ect.

I'd be shocked if we don't announce someone new this week or next. I'm keeping the faith.

I would have thought it prudent to have the AMN deal tied up before letting Doc go. On this basis as Arsenal have played hard-ball with us we could have fed that back to Spurs by increasing the Doc price.
These deals are big business and we shouldn’t be made to look like mugs by our direct rivals from North London. Is this where we find that Jeff Shi is taking on too much with his three roles?

I wonder if the acceptance of the lower fee was out of respect for Doherty and his loyal service over the past 10 years. On hearing interest from Tottenham offered him a new challenge at a time in his career where he had one big move left. Wolves could of demanded more money and dragged out the deal but would have left us with an unhappy player whose head had been turned.

30 Aug 2020 11:54:30
Well the selling of Doherty will come back and haunt us, mark my words. Also where are our new signings Nuno and the other guys really need to start pulling their fingers out now. not long before the season starts and we have no players. lol To me looks like we will be a championship team (again) in 21/ 22.

30 Aug 2020 12:36:10
Can any Wolves fan even begin to imagine that Nuno sat down with the powers that be and suggested selling Matt Doherty? Decisions made over the Managers head only have one outcome, looks like a change in Fosun’s ten year plan. Out of darkness cometh. another false dawn.

30 Aug 2020 14:02:30
Nice to see that everyone is now beginning to understand my predictions and prophesies. I didn't make them lightly but as I have said before we are a club that takes three steps forward and then ten steps back. Championship beckons.

30 Aug 2020 14:35:04
Why would Fosun have spent the time and money they have, for it then to go to waste? I can't see it myself, they are too big to let something like that happen.

29 Aug 2020 22:35:39
Got news for you.
Doherty ain't English.

30 Aug 2020 18:00:09
Tom's Tatters, how can £20m be a bargain but not be worth £25m? Don't really see any logic in that.

31 Aug 2020 07:15:04
Plymouth wolf. Too big. They have lost fortunes. We are just a toy to them. Ask yourself why they are not backing their manager.

31 Aug 2020 19:57:32
demon, I have yet to see evidence that they are not backing the manager, for all we know there may be deals in the pipeline, or even Nuno saying nope to deals he maybe saying I want this guy when he's available, no one else on the market I want, ill make do with what I have plus youth for now. who knows at this stage.

One thing I do know is I have been massively impressed with what's been brought in over the last few years, so I have no reason to doubt Fosun's intentions or indeed their vision for the future.

Onwards and upwards.
