Debbie, yes I saw saw that one this morning also being linked with Calvin Bassey though with Rangers I think having Champions League. I would suggest we've more chance of getting Shirley Bassey! ?

23 May 2022 09:58:21
Also Debbie Wolves are apparently set to sign Chicago Fire goalkeeper Gabriel Slonina, so Ruddy must be going. Also Rangers left-back Calvin Bassey, so does that mean we are moving away from attacking wing backs and to a back four?

{Ed001's Note - Bassey can play centre-back and wing-back.}

23 May 2022 10:21:47
@ken68 Yeah, Rangers can offer Champions League Football, but group stage only. I get your point though, shop window for him and he's only 22.

23 May 2022 10:23:46
Ed001 ah but can Shirley!?

{Ed001's Note - my cousin played her as a child when he was a little boy. So she can be a lot of things, even male...}

23 May 2022 10:27:55
Exactly, Ed001 just thinking, if we move to a back four where does that leave Coady because he's no centre back or full back imo.

{Ed001's Note - well the signing of Bassey does not stop you playing a back 3, but Coady was Championship player of the season the season before you signed him playing in midfield for Huddersfield.}

23 May 2022 10:44:47
I appreciate that Ed001 but, for me, he was ok for Wolves in that position but we have been spoilt now with Neves/Moutinho. I think Nuno got it bang on with playing him in that sweeper role, that's what bought him national recognition. But having said that he has scored a few coming forward this season and can certainly pass a ball. We'll see.

23 May 2022 11:01:13
Sorry Ed but he's not much better than hopeless in midfield, as we witnessed for a couple of seasons ourselves before Nuno successfully transformed him into a sweeper.

{Ed001's Note - that's not true, he was just badly used by poor managers. Plus he was not 'transformed' into a sweeper, he had played there at youth level many times.}

23 May 2022 11:06:10
Ken, Champions League or not, Scottish football versus Premier League, just from a salary and career perspective has got to be attractive for any player.

By the way Wolves did approach Shirley to be on the board as they needed a big spender but withdrew the offer when she wanted paying in diamonds, forever, apparently.

23 May 2022 11:06:32
@Ed001 when Coady was playing Midfield for us he was reckless, forever getting booked for awful tackles in his first season. Then Nuno shifted him to a new position and he was like a different player, and still is.

{Ed001's Note - you were not the same side as you are now when he was in midfield.}

23 May 2022 12:05:10
Longmynd, very good!
Ed001 as we've seen many times as good coach can by playing a guy with limited talent look good using him in a specific role that suits his ability. The reverse is also true having seen good players wasted playing in roles unsuited to them.
That's the skill of a top coach utilising the talent he has available, that's why the top coaches are successful. To be fair they often get top players but it's how they get to the top themselves!

{Ed001's Note - very true Ken.}

23 May 2022 12:06:23
What we really need is attacking full backs who can play the wing back role. I'ld give Coady a shot in midfield as I suspect the transition to a 4 may not be straightforward. If we leak like a sieve and still struggle to score we are going to need to shut down the goals against quickly and that may mean reverting to the back 3.

23 May 2022 13:05:30
Everyone. For the last two years as we know we've had a very very good first eleven but as soon as we've had injuries the wheels have come off! That has been the problem and how the end of the season imploded. With decent investment last summer we could have qualified for Europe without a doubt. Shi told us last September that the money was there his words not mine. Such a massive opportunity missed in my opinion.

23 May 2022 13:37:36
Ken, hit the nail on the head, but will they recognise their error and learn from it? hope so.

23 May 2022 14:10:53
Have to agree with you Ken, the lack of depth in the squad was/is shocking. But that is how Nuno wanted it.

23 May 2022 14:39:45
I accept that Debbie you are quite right.
After we missed out on Sanches, our choice because of injury. Plus Botman and Kamara apparently both turned us down. Why didn't they recruit earlier? Didn't make sense then and still doesn't. Whatever,water under the bridge now I guess. What a wasted opportunity, missed out on Europe, had we made it would Neves still want a move? So bloody stupid!

23 May 2022 18:41:38
This season, didn't we start our last bad spell once we got Bolly, Neto and others back, and for a week or 2 had a full squad and lost far more than we won?

23 May 2022 20:10:03
Tim. Not that I blame him but Boly came back for the bulk of the time at various points we've lost Kilman, Saiss and Semedo and that has caused a lot of disruption! Not the only reason but it certainly hasn't helped in my opinion!
