Fosun certainly have the bit between their teeth. It's not finished yet. Over at Villa Park I see they're short of cash but just about saved up enough to buy Matty Cash from the championship. When the dust has settled I would not be surprised to find that Wolves were one of the busier clubs in this transfer window. That will settle our nerves and give credence to the view that Doherty's move was for footballing reasons rather than financial.

08 Sep 2020 15:13:28
I never thought it was financial but more because it was his last chance to play at that level and he was a useful but not essential team member so could be replaced.

08 Sep 2020 15:31:40
Look at the players we've bought and are linked with, compare and contrast with Villa. i.e Catty Mash and Olly Wally ha ha ha. Also, why the negativity about Saiss, World Class.

08 Sep 2020 15:37:28
Villa may be short of cash but they just oitlayed 33m for Ollie Watkins from Brentford . wish I was that short of cash!

08 Sep 2020 15:45:02
Wozza- They soon will be short of cash offering that level of finance for a player that's 24 and still only ever scored goals in the Champ! Don't get me wrong he could do the job but people were saying this all last window about Villas signings and turns out all they had was a top half Champ team! They were VERY lucky Watford imploded else they would be back down at there squads (and managers) natural level right now! 🤣.

08 Sep 2020 15:45:45
I like Sais but we have VERY different ideas of what World class looks like Preston!

08 Sep 2020 15:56:30
Ollie Watkins looks a good buy for Villa, especially as Dean Smith managed him at Brentford. But, at £28 mil plus add-ons I'm glad it's not Wolves buying him! Coady will eat him for breakfast.

08 Sep 2020 16:07:56
Sort of 'tongue in cheek, about Saiss. But, he has been steady in the back 3, and was very good alongside Neves in Championship season. 33m for Olly Wolly! Really, Villa are doomed. Bring 'em on, and the Boggies . 12 points already COYW.

08 Sep 2020 16:23:05
Haha, fair enough Preston. Like I said I do like him and no one can question his commitment when playing but (for me) despite trying his best and being excellent in the air he just doesn't have the temperament or patience in the tackle to ever be a top CB. Good squad player mind, great to bring on with 10 to go when defending a lead but if we want to kick on then we need another natural CB. Marcal looks like a great acquisition and like he could play that role, mind you he also looks like he gets booked a fair bit as well! Can't wait for the first match now! 👍.

08 Sep 2020 17:26:03
To be fair, I thought that Watkins might be a good back up for Raul. But that was before we acquired High Ho Fabio Silva.

08 Sep 2020 18:22:48
I think Watkins is a decent enough player but remember the context. He's a year older than Maupay when he moved and both scored 25 goals the season before moving and yet (probs due to English player premium) Watkins is costing about £15m more than Maupay (when considering add ons)! Now consider that in his first season Maupay scored 10 goals in the Prem! If like Brighton those 10 goals help you stay up then its good business, if not then you suddenly have a club record player who mostly scores goals in the Champ! Also looking at Villas defence record last year compared to Brighton then Watkins is going to need to score a lot closer to 25 goals big ask that! 🤔
One thing that is for sure is that Brentfords recruitment system really is top notch! 👍.

08 Sep 2020 18:24:13
If Watkins is worth that much we are right to fish in Portugal for our players.

08 Sep 2020 19:19:53
BullysBoy. He'll come in useful next year in the championship.

08 Sep 2020 20:05:31
@old-wulf, that's the first time I've heard that one. Hi ho Fabio Silva has got one hell of a ring to it. He's going to have to be some player to earn the walk out song being sung about him, but I've got goosebumps thinking about it.

. hopefully he doesn't end up as a Tomasz Frankowski!

08 Sep 2020 21:14:55
About the same amount we paid for Raul who wasn't experienced. Could work or blow up in their face. Hopefully the latter.

08 Sep 2020 21:53:09
Sean- Raul wasn't experienced, you kidding buddy?! He'd already played for Athletico Madrid and Benfica, playing regular in the League and Champs League for both! Oh also being a main stay for Mexico for the majority of his career, so yeah apart from all that he was basically a novice 😂 I think what you mean is that he wasn't prolific and there you would be correct, bizarrely we are the first club he's hit double figures for in a season since leaving South America! 👍.

09 Sep 2020 08:46:58
Raul from Benfica or Ollie from Brentford I mean I hope Villa fans won't be disappointed but I know who I would choose and he had loads of experience.

09 Sep 2020 09:32:36
For athletic he scored 1 goal in 18 appearances and for benfica he scored 18 in 80 appearances. So not amazing stats really for a forward. Believe me I'm not taking anything away from him, it's just taken Nuno and the squad around him for his talent to show.

09 Sep 2020 11:26:47
Rumour has it Wolverhampton is changing its name to Portohampton.

09 Sep 2020 10:51:45
@ Seanmorton95 the important thing in the goal:game ratio is time played, substitutions can skewiff the figures.

Window Wolf
Last chance to plat at "THAT LEVEL" -what do you mean? I accept they have a bigger stadium and more recent success than us but at the moment surely we are at the same level - only goal difference divided us last year and there are good arguments to say we obtained something like half a dozen or so less points than we should have and thus would have ended the year well clear of them.
Do you really think Spurs will soar above this year?
I'm confident we will be in the shout for the Europa places again as they will.
This of course is caveated by your other point and with less than week to go I hope you are correct (and I presume Nuno agrees with you or he wouldn't haves sold him so you must be correct) but it doesn't look like it at the moment.
ps I am a grumpy, sensitive and v nervous fan so sorry for snapping.
pps I am not Matt's grandad but I thought he was our 3rd best attacking player last year - which for a right back made him pretty special but again it seems that others more knowledgeable and important agree with you and not me. I hope Mourinho and I are wrong!

09 Sep 2020 21:02:20

Your right Doc had become instrumental to the way wolves played under Nuno.

However after the defeat to Sevilla, I think it became clear that wolves needed to improve the sum of all parts of the squad.

I still expect a few transactions this summer. We don't have a Rwb, we don't have a CM and arguably we need a LWB (if marcal plays in LCB as he did for Lyon) . The Porto contingent are for the future and will further supplement the first team as the season progresses.

09 Sep 2020 23:54:43
Mad- As usual buddy I agree with most of what your saying. The one thing I would say is that I think we may have our CM, Vitor has come in on loan with a bit of hype and I think he's come to play. Not saying he'll be starting every week but if its a loan he's got to get the chance to prove his worth and if the clips are anything to go by (which granted can be deceiving) then the lads ready to bring something to the table! Think your right about still needing a RWB but certainly exciting times! COYW 👍.
