Rumours persist about McCormack but if there is any truth you have to question why Villa want to sell so quickly. He must have pocketed a lot of down from his moves already. Does he still have the hunger. Not for me thanks.

08 Dec 2016 23:42:02
I think it's because Kodija is the preferred striker and McCormack doesn't want to sit on the bench. Apparently he has been told that he is not in Steve Bruce's long term plans.

09 Dec 2016 05:59:27
Millwall are apparently into Jed Wallace according to newsnow.

09 Dec 2016 11:53:04
McCormack would certainly be an upgrade on what we've got at the moment, plus Rhodes and Lewis Dunk, these are the kind of players we must buy if Fosun are serious about us getting to the Premier league.

09 Dec 2016 11:58:09
I see we've got over 4.5k allocation for Stoke at 20 quid a ticket. Surely we will sell that out! On a Saturday at 3pm 👍👍👍.

09 Dec 2016 12:02:07
Palace have been told to cough up £10m for Dunk.

09 Dec 2016 13:06:21
As I said he's the kind of quality we need, so start buyin these sort of players or stay in this league indefinately! The choice is Fosuns?

09 Dec 2016 15:22:53
Lots of rumours, lots of good quality players names mentioned, lots of optimism. However, realistically, if the players clubs will let them go is another question altogether?! Never mind the cost.! No one wants to sell their best players do they? Just being realistic. We may get one or two, but, that is probably all. We need all of the players mentioned to move this tanker forward that's for sure. We must at least string a few wins together now that I'm sure we would all agree. 👍😉.

04 Dec 2016 10:50:51
Read in the Sunday tabloids Joleon Lescott is coming home on a free from Athens.

04 Dec 2016 11:10:35
You mean to England I hope. WAS great for us but that the PAST! 😉.

05 Dec 2016 09:35:14
NO to Jolson Lescott. We was a good player and has been cast off by all the other clubs because of the WAS. He's well past his best. We need players who are currently playing well, are quality to take us forward. Not backwards! Just my view. 😉👍.

05 Dec 2016 14:54:59
JOLEON LESCOTT is set to miss the rest of the season after suffering a knee injury
Lescott had a shocker, with one report saying he looked "glaringly off the pace of the game, always dropping back and backpedalling, unwilling to go into the tackle".

sounds like he is just what we need!

05 Dec 2016 15:16:03
Agreed' coast.

05 Dec 2016 20:27:11
Lambert hope you don't bring Lescotte back, we have enough trouble with our back four and with Williamson being out we don't want anymore trouble.
We want Fosun to keep to there promises and bring some quality in january to get we were we want to be, and that means top 6 firstly like they said we would be trying for, and we all now that the side needs some quality added to the team to achieve that.
Lambert must be trusted to bring the players in he wants or it will be a waste of time.

05 Dec 2016 20:47:13
Don't want Lescott abandoned us just like Camara, Adobe went for the money I will not welcome him back in his flash car.

05 Dec 2016 22:07:58
Lescott can train with us maybe and who knows he might have something to offer I don't care if he went for more money that's football just like Dicko, Graham, Coady etc when they came to Wolves.

06 Dec 2016 08:02:41
Its unfair to compare lescott with Afobe. Lescott always gave his all for us and didn't push for a move mid season. Also he went on to prove he was premiership class.

06 Dec 2016 10:17:20
Agree Jtwolf, but please let's stop taking silly chances with unfit players we have enough to clear out know.
Fosun have the money let's not keep wasting it, let's be positive and move on with some quality players brought in January.
If we don't get some quality players in areas were we desperately need them, then we will never challenge the top 6 teams, because it's obvious to me that everything is in place except the team, and I hate to say it but we are fighting a relegation battle at the moment with not much difference between bottom sides except Rotherham who looked doomed.

06 Dec 2016 20:06:06
All loan players to be released in Jan including Costa.
Jan spend will be huge.
Rhodes, Jerome, Dunk, Stephens and Pritchard on radar.

06 Dec 2016 20:20:50
Realist let's hope so that would be amazing.

06 Dec 2016 21:21:30
I know you won't believe it, but the realist is 100% right. All I ever see are big, big names coming in as I saw it before the takeover and I said it on here. I don't want to put my cards completely down, but I guarantee Fosun won't be messing around.

06 Dec 2016 21:45:27
Realist can you just clarify is Cameron Jerome? Who is Dunk and Stephens? Pritchard was mom in Norwich last game .

06 Dec 2016 23:16:29
Lewis Dunk, CB currently playing for Brighton. Don't know who Stephens is though.

06 Dec 2016 23:57:01
happy with all of that, but would rather Costa stays if it means we don't sign 1 or 2 of them.

07 Dec 2016 00:12:48
Altho my psychic footie predictions can be unpredictable, I get a really clear picture of absolutely massive spending which is why i've been slightly miffed at the lack of it so far, lol. Not sure where he gets the info from but The Realist is absolutely bang on the money. They will go big very soon.

07 Dec 2016 12:21:41
Bit of a contradiction isn't it wavidsmith? You don't know where the realist gets his information from, but you know he's right? How do you know he's right?

07 Dec 2016 13:36:22
JTWolf he's a psychic.

07 Dec 2016 15:27:09
Is that a fantasist or a realist? That is the question? . 😉😉😉.

07 Dec 2016 17:57:37
Are you being serious or taking the .
Either way I'm face palming.

07 Dec 2016 18:05:20
Dunk is a legend. Amazing for Brighton last season. Stephens not so sure. He's only average in my opinion. Love to see Van Wolfwinskel if were talking championship strikers.

07 Dec 2016 19:19:36
yeah I am. or was one, before I predicted anything to do with wolves lol.

07 Dec 2016 19:28:27
⛩⛩⛩ when you have my 'skill' it's a lot about trust. There is something about The Realist that I trust. I can't tell you exactly what, it just comes from the pit of my stomach. Unlike the excitable on here, he is definitely telling the truth, like the information has a validity. ⛩⛩⛩.

07 Dec 2016 20:21:14
Is this SENSE or NONSENSE? This is the question. The names are all a great shout. The teams these players belong to may not be so keen to let them go. don't you think?! Just adding a little food for thought with some pragmatism. unless someone's actually in the know, it's all very much speculation. 😉.

08 Dec 2016 07:33:03
So just who is Stephens?

08 Dec 2016 13:06:41
Dale Stephens, plays for Brighton.

08 Dec 2016 15:26:31
Guys can you see Brighton selling us 2 of their players? No neither can I.

08 Dec 2016 18:49:43
Derby said they were on the radar.
Brighton will move players out to get players in like most championship clubs.
If Dunk and Stephens can be sold for the right price and it suits Brighton they will be sold and replaced.
Lambert will have a comprehensive list of potential targets, that's the names I have been given.
He will also have the money and the vision.
Have also had an insight into life under Zenga.
Don't believe the hype.
The players were baffled by the whole " circus"

08 Dec 2016 20:31:46
OK we will see but can't see them selling first team players in January when they are in the mix for automatic promotion.
But we shall see.

08 Dec 2016 20:59:32
The Realist is a former player, or something. He knows too much and speaks sense. Take his knowledge and use it wisely.

09 Dec 2016 14:12:28
lol what an oddball thing to say.

09 Dec 2016 19:48:55
I am alittle strange.

03 Dec 2016 19:55:28
Wolves are interested in buying Gaetano Berardi of Leeds Utd.

08 Dec 2016 18:26:18
I hope my other feeling doesn't come true: that Lambert signs Agbonlahore and Lescott. You can just see it coming, can't you?

08 Dec 2016 20:18:16
Jones, Kightly, Jarvis, Golbourne, McDonald, Keane, Lescott, Winnall, Davis and Sako?

Let's pick the three who you would most like to take back.

For me Sako, Winnall and McDonald.

08 Dec 2016 21:02:41
Sako, Jarvis and McDonald prob.

02 Dec 2016 17:30:21
Hi guys, here's the rumours heard so far by myself:

1. Brit Assombalonga is coming for 3-4 million

2. Ben Marshall is coming for 1.5 million

3. Stefan Bell is coming from Maniz was at Nottingham forest. 4-5 million

4. Matt Jarvis is coming home but I don't know how much for.

What do you guys think?

02 Dec 2016 17:46:38
Not a cat in hell's chance of any of that being legit'

02 Dec 2016 18:10:38
Looks like your 'Random rumour' generator has been busy.

When you say "Rumours heard by yourself so far" did you actually mean "Rumours that you've just manufacturered"

02 Dec 2016 18:35:30
No meant rumours I've heard on websites.

02 Dec 2016 19:04:05
I've heard the Marshall and Assombalonga rumours too. However Marshall link was played down as he only wanted to move because he weren't playing on a regular basis but is now. Assombalonga link is only in papers but seems to be a possibly to happen.

02 Dec 2016 19:36:36
Would love to see Jarvis back at the Mol but sadly I don't think it will happen i've heard Sunderland and Swansea want him.

02 Dec 2016 20:35:31
I think you have a mental problem, lol.

02 Dec 2016 20:44:39
You've also got the prices wrong. Assombalonga is a £7m Norwich target - although I think you might be right about Wolves showing interest. We were linked with Marshall under Jackett and wouldn't be surprised with that one, either.

I''d love to see Sako on one wing and Jarvis on the other and pray every night for that scenario. As for Stefan Bell? I've never heard of him.

02 Dec 2016 21:41:06
Sako, Dicko, Afobe, Jarvis has a nice ring to it. Then Bjarnason as the box to box midfielder, with Saiss holding. You couldn't get a better forward line, than that, providing they were all fit.

02 Dec 2016 22:03:45
Wavidsmith I swear you're Sako's agent and just taken on Afobe you make me laugh. I can't see him leaving Palace as they will have a new manager before the next window and he will get his chance. As for Afobe he's happy picking up his cash on the bench. Asomblonga would be perfect with Dicko when he's match fit. Looked a lot more solid last night and all players playing in their true position. Need to build on this now and win a few more.

02 Dec 2016 23:06:16
All the old boys know their jobs, that's all Darbo. It would be like putting on an old pair of slippers! Sako would jump at the chance, I reckon. Offer Bournemouth their money back (£10m) on Afobe, and that completes the set. We all wanna see it, so make it happen.

03 Dec 2016 08:37:09
Wavidsmith u need to stop lookin at the past and let's be honest we didn't achieve anything with those players, if we'd been promoted they'd of stayed. I'm sure Lambo and Fosun will get it right in Jan.

03 Dec 2016 10:14:40
We need to re-sign:
Berra, Ward, Foley, Henry, Kightly, Fletcher, Elokobi, Jarvis. As using Wavidsmiths theory, they all know they're position and it would be as simple as just putting on an old pair of slippers. Forget about Afobe. He sulked until he got a move and is now the most expensive bench warmer in the country.

03 Dec 2016 10:26:19

03 Dec 2016 10:26:46
Who needs a new striker?

We got Super Gladon Hatrick hero last night.

03 Dec 2016 16:55:13
Not sure why you're all so reticent, a lot of people on here wanted Robbie Keane back two weeks ago lol.

03 Dec 2016 17:23:17
Sako and Afobe wouldn't want to come back and I wouldn't want them back! Assombalonga would be a great signing though but can't see it happening.

03 Dec 2016 20:03:35
Rhodes and McCormack all day long. We have been linked with both. If we had these 2 in the same team with Cav and Costa on the wings we would be laughing.

05 Dec 2016 06:07:05
Absolutely no chance of Assombalonga joining Wolves he will go the Premiership. If and when he leaves Forest.

01 Dec 2016 15:41:53
Losing at QPR tonight will put Wolves in the relegation slot they are unlikely to escape. Expect Fosun to put club up for sale in May, when relegated to League One. Then it needs a modern day Jack Hayward II to revive the club.

01 Dec 2016 16:02:30
Stop being morbid Shrewsbury Bear. We won't go down but, we won't be anywhere near the POs! January is a MASSIVE TW for and Lambert has got to bring in the right players! He's also got to make sure he gets rid of the follow - Stearman, Saville, Hause, Iorfa, Coady, Gladon, Wallace and Mason! These players aren't good enough!

01 Dec 2016 17:04:27
Hope this is not the case but the worst prediction.,
Wolves relegated
Lambert resigns
Fosun put Wolves up for sale
Hope this is the case.
Wolves escape relegation
Thelwell sacked
Fosun invest at board level is with proper football knowledge
Until then give the team all our support both on and off the pitch but we do need a LEADER on the pitch ASAP.

01 Dec 2016 17:06:13
What a stupid comment.

01 Dec 2016 17:48:15
Your opinion is like a rectum everyone has one and I don't much care for yours!

01 Dec 2016 17:50:46
I take it you are referring to ALL 3 comments above yours Wavid.

01 Dec 2016 18:04:36
Seeing people asking for the club to get rid of Hause no Iorfa makes me laugh, it's the same people who were saying 12 months ago we've got to hold on to these kind of players they're future England players. Christ why are our fans so fickle? It's so frustrating reading and listening to our own fans constantly moaning. Yes we are going through a rough time, yes some of the players aren't performing. We are in a transition period. Give it some time and instead of slating every bad thing that happens how about give a bit of support? Never known fans so fickle and expectant. Yes we have a huge history but that's all it is at the moment and it doesn't give us a right to be higher in the football pyramid BUT with Fosun in charge there's hope that we can return to former glorys, so I say again instead of skating at every opportunity let's get behind them give them our full support, rough with the smooth, because when it's going well our fans are bloody brilliant.

01 Dec 2016 18:13:14
Good post Stu.

01 Dec 2016 18:34:32
I was referring to ShrewsburyBear. lol.

01 Dec 2016 18:38:51
Not even half way through the season and someone makes a comment like that. And to make it worse, people are actually replying and agreeing with him, lol.

01 Dec 2016 18:54:42
Shrewsbury troll is just that'a troll, pay his ramblings no attention, boars like him get fed up of themselves eventually and crawl back under the Rock from where they came.

01 Dec 2016 19:14:22
The most ridiculous comment I've ever heard and probably not from Shrewsbury but West Brom. FOSUN are a large conglomerate and few setbacks would. It put them off. They make more in a day than what Wolves cost if they weren't serious they would have left Zenga in charge until after Christmas.

01 Dec 2016 19:17:45
@Rusko can I asky why Mason on your list?
He before he got injured was one of our better players this season, he is completly different than he was last.

01 Dec 2016 20:48:46
I guarantee Fosun wouldn't walk - if anything they would throw even more money at it. It would hardly be great for their reputation, would it? Can't believe someone actually sat their and wrote all that bollocks, lol.

01 Dec 2016 21:11:09
The main thing is just getting to W10, D10, L10, then going from there. There is no way on this earth that the new team will get relegated, as long as PL plays them.

02 Dec 2016 10:42:02

02 Dec 2016 16:48:19
Stu mate you have the award for the best comment of the year. I seriously believe that keeping our youth is the only way to progress in this division. Iorfa was amazing last night and Ennis should be given a game to show what an amazing player he is.

02 Dec 2016 18:40:13
ShrewsburyBear's opinion is about as reliable and honest as a West Brom manager's evidence is in the High Court.

02 Dec 2016 18:45:51
You're spot on about fickle fans. It's not just Wolves fans either. I've just read a fan blog about QPR. Depressing stuff although I'm glad to say we stuffed them last night.

Fosun made a bad start admittedly but they are learning fast and this bad start will be a constant reminder in the future to take proper advice. I expect steady progress up the table now.

28 Nov 2016 07:23:51
Arsenal are aiming to send striker Chuba Akpom out on loan to Wolverhampton Wanderers in January as the 21-year-old recovers from a back injury.

Wolves are also expected to take advantage of Notts forest FC current sale situation by attempting a double swoop for former loanee Michael Mancienne and forward Brit Assombalonga

Players that will either be loaned out/ loans to club terminated or sold are as follows: Paul Gladon, Richard Stearman, Borthwick-Jackson, Ola John, Jed Wallace and Dominic Iorfa (should a decent bid come in from West Ham)

28 Nov 2016 09:36:04
Well Bertie that sounds like a box of Allsorts. More need to go I'm afraid. I also feel there needs to be some Structual changes on the training ground. I wonder if PL wants more of the team that usually work with him and know his methods around him? Thelwell needs to be relocated to another team elsewhere. Clearly his choice and the way that side is operating isn't working is it? 😉.

28 Nov 2016 12:07:17
I've heard James Collins will be part of the Iorfa deal.

28 Nov 2016 12:11:27
Last thing this club needs are other clubs crocks, we've got enough of our own, get players in on sensible contracts, that's the only way to get them to perform week in, week out.

28 Nov 2016 15:34:52
Jimmy that sounds awfully like Moxey.

28 Nov 2016 15:56:21
I hope they keep Williamson and give him a chance. He could be really important next year.

28 Nov 2016 16:14:56
By the sounds of things, a lot of players could be shifted out come January. My only worry is If we're in the same situation in the league come January, we won't attract the quality we want and need. Have to start getting results sooner rather than later!

28 Nov 2016 18:54:37
Most concerning thing of all is that PL wants to recall EEL and Henry back into the first team. The starting 11 will resemble a very average league one side very soon. Makes you wonder why Fosun brought any new players in, or just how long Lambert will keep his job going back to Jackett's rubbish.

28 Nov 2016 19:18:07
I agree with you JimmyJones. We don't need other teams cast offs. Experienced, quality FIT players is what we need with some quality experienced younger players. 😉.

28 Nov 2016 23:38:11
Rumours flying about of the return of Kenny Jackett. Surely not? He's chucked it in at Rotherham.

29 Nov 2016 07:40:34
Maybe KJ is going to Norwich or QPR as number two. He's a mate of Ian Holloway. So QPR sounds possible. Can I see him working with Moxey at Norwich? Hmm.

29 Nov 2016 11:16:06
Can't believe people think Jackett is comin back here! Never happen! Shows he's got no balls and is spineless, and also just a mediocre manager at best! Warnock even though I'm not keen on him would be a far better boss here than Jackett ever was!

29 Nov 2016 13:57:17
Wolves was a well-run club when Jez Moxey was CEO. Now it's run by corporate goons from China. All these loan deals and bad buys are precursor to a double relegation. It will be League Two by 2018. Crowd wiil be 8,000 and you will be able to buy the club for.

29 Nov 2016 17:48:15
PT, you don't half, don't you! Complete blind spot for a manager that was working under strict financial restraints a club that was up for sale and many of the quality in the first team injured. KJ, would NOT given the change in circumstances of the club left us in this more, that's for sure. He may not have been a prem manager, but definitely knows the championship. I think many on this site would recognise that at least! 😀.

29 Nov 2016 18:54:56
He knows the championship that well he's walked out on Rotherham with well over half the season left because he doesn't want a relegation on his cv because he's not up to the job! Fact!

29 Nov 2016 19:01:58
Left us in this Mess that was supposed to say. Bloody predicted text again. Simply put if KJ were still in charge and with this change in circumstances I'm sure he wouldn't have bought in 12/ 13 new personnel, and would have bought in maybe 4/ 5 quality tried and tested and released a few. He was nowhere near as bad as your making out PT. Working within tight constraints and lots of injuries to key players is very difficult. 😀.

29 Nov 2016 22:42:16
WolvesCoast KJ would've bought in a load of tosh like the rubbish that's been playing lately the new guys are even playing and you're blaming them!

30 Nov 2016 08:22:38
Darbo what I'm saying is, we wouldn't be 3rd off the bottom of the league. He wouldn't have sanctioned 13 new players and would have had some money to actually get in some quality. Quite why a manager needs Thewell is somewhat confusing as there seems to be a common thread here. That being that he seems to be bringing in all these new players supposedly with the authority of the manager. This setup is not working is it. Quite the opposite. Even managers, well respected ones acknowledge what KJ has done! Hopefully, they know a bit more than us. we are in this mess because of bad management and I'm certain if he had stayed we wouldn't be where we are now. For the last 18 months of his tenancy he worked under strict constraints and had many injuries. Things totally changed when fosun came in. All I'm saying is I bet he would have made a better fist of the situation than Zynga did. Can't blame PL he only been in 5 mins. 😉.

30 Nov 2016 08:51:36
Basically Jackett had a cushy number under Morgan and Moxey but when FOSUN came in he couldn't hack the pressure and walked! WOLVESCOAST u must be related to him not to see it?

30 Nov 2016 11:34:46
Jackett was fired, or do you know something we don't Paul?

Don't blame him leaving Rotherham. He will have decided there's nothing he can do with that team unlike with us when he stayed 3 seasons and would have stayed longer.

We just don't know what would have happened this season under KJ. If he had a budget like Zenga had he wouldn't have signed Benfica youngsters. He might have signed players like Bod and Saiss, though. And got some decent loanees in.

30 Nov 2016 11:45:20
JACKETT 😂😂😂 what about Price and Macdonald? Our two best midfielders, one he sold the other he didn't play! He really knew what he was doin? NOT! He knew the pressure he would be under with Fosun so bottled that job and also he knew the circumstances surrounding the Rotherham job, and he also bottled that one!

30 Nov 2016 12:00:24
The various interpretations of how the football side has been managed are all Red Herrings.
As I understand it, Jackett's role was to recommend what resources were needed and Thelwell's job was to get the players. All went wrong when Thelwell couldn't deliver and found alternatives which Jackett didn't want. He was forced to take them as the Club backed Thelwell.
Apparently Morgan was sympathetic to Jackett, but Moxey sided with Thelwell. all downhill from then!
Even worse under Fosun, no manager, so Mendes decided, and Thelwell seems to have meekly stood back and contributed nothing.
I will never blame Zenga, it was mission impossible for him and I think in a sensible structure, he could have done well.
My hope is that Lambert will have complete control of 1st Team structure, with Thelwell standing right back, doing the admin. or even better, being sacked.
We will know very soon by the players we release and hopefully sign in Jan if that is how it will work going forward.

30 Nov 2016 12:55:36
Spot on Euroman. I'm of course not related in anyway to KJ but do recognise working under Morgan and the contraints imposed with regards finances along with injuries, he was up against it. As you say he was fired and didn't walk. It appears some people don't even acknowledge what's printed in the press and common knowledge! I'm certain given the right financial backing we would have seen plenty of quality tried and tested championship players here, well maybe 4/ 5 and wouldn't be in the mess we are in now. That's just the way I see it. Every manager has his ups and downs. Look at Meriniho that's not a bed of roses is it? 😉.

30 Nov 2016 15:10:01
Over the last 5-6 years there has been a constant thorn in Wolves side one being Thelwell and for me the other has to be Tony Daley. I look at the players and they don't look fit, we were supposed to be playing high pressing fast tempo football and all I see are lethargic players ambling around until we are dead and buried in games. Let's get some urgency and play with passion and energy.

It's starting to work for Liverpool and this is the way modern football should be played and. It sitting back with 5 in midfield especially at home!

30 Nov 2016 16:06:04
Good shout Rugeleywolf2. some sense coming through with Euroman and a few others as well. Zynga should have been given more time. I thought there was a glimmer at the end of the tunnel.

KJ, would have had money to get a few decent quality players and we would at least be looking at the right end of the table. It's in the past now and we move on! Let's get behind PL now and keep our fingers crossed the team get their bloody fingers out and do what there supposed to do, win matches! 😉.

30 Nov 2016 17:06:06
Couldn't have put it better myself WOLVESCOAST. I seriously believe that KJ would have been great now but Fosun sack him. I'm really concerned however that calverio isn't playing as I reckon he could shine in this league. For me he starts over anyone at right midfield any day. Why no one sees that I have no idea.

My starting line up for QPR:
GK Ikeme
RB Iorfa

Totally agree wolves011. Spot on! 😉.

Deepthroat KJ chucked it in at Rotherham I imagine for the same reason PL chucked it in at Blackburn. He could see tooooo much brown stuff he didn't want to wade into and was probably told he would get financial support which didn't appear so thought. Don't fancy pissing into the wind on this and I'm off! 😉.

How very perceptive Wolfcoast!

30 Nov 2016 21:38:09
There's a total contrast between PL @ Blackburn and KJ @ Rotherham. PL did the job of keeping Blackburn in the division they were in.
KJ did a job that half a dozen decent manager could have done by getting us out of L1. That's were it ended, lucky 1st Championship season then downward spiral. Whether KJ would have or wouldn't have conversation is a waste of time, same as the previous MM was this and that. Let's just get behind PL to sort out the Squad he's in herited (70-75%KJ players) and give him time to do it.
No good looking back wishing let's start believing.

Sako was the reason Jackett did so well. We would have struggled to get out of league one, or finished with 77 points in the championship without him. Ironically, it should be Solbakken we are thanking.

If the club want solidarity, bringing Sako back would help, especially if John, Tex and Costa are to depart at the end of the season. I speak for the majority of fans about this.

01 Dec 2016 14:29:42
Thanks Wolvescoast. I liked KJ and never understood how he got things so right in L1 but couldn't transfer those skills to the Championship. Other teams like us - Norwich, Southampton, Swansea, Leicester - all managed to keep the momentum going. I can see why Fosun wanted someone else, though. After two years of going nowhere, they wanted a fresh start. Think Real Madrid. Or even Man City. To keep a manager job beyond two seasons is a rarity.

PL should be the right kind of manager for us. I was hoping things would be like when Roy Keane went to Sunderland. One end of the table to the other. But that's a bit much to hope for. But we've seen with Derby than a few wins is all it takes to go from a relegation battle to chasing the playoffs.

That leaves the team. And the 11 stated by Wolves011 are probably as good as it gets, which means 4231. Maybe Doc for Iorfa but neither are shining at the moment. Definitely pair Saiss and Price for some DM clout. I would like to see Mason given a chance but who would drop Dicko or Bod for Mason? At least Wallace, Saville and CBJ aren't there. Leave Batth out to adjust his mind for a few games too.

If this team can't perform, it's hard top see who can. We have some players waiting to come back. Zyro and Graham of course. And Onion, John and Williamson. All could be considered first team material. Probably leave out youngsters until we have some momentum behind us.

AJwolf. Sadly it's not even worth responding to your last note.!

26 Nov 2016 22:17:02
It's obvious that this squad isn't up to the task, the players are sub standard, especially the ones from the days of the previous regime' as I've said previously, I believe there has been too much emphasis put on the academy, to the detriment of the 1st team and club as a whole.

I believe that Danny Baath, even though he wasn't playing today, has been made captain simply because he is a 'local' lad and to validate the outlay on the academy, to justify it if you like and it hasn't paid off. he isn't a captain by any stretch of the imagination, iorfa, he's a joke loan him out or get rid of him, he had the makings of a decent player if his confidence doesn't get destroyed by playing next to such incompetent players.

The back four and the midfield need to be torn up completely and rebuilt'that said'it shouldn't take long as they are so weak they are ready and waiting to fall.

27 Nov 2016 07:15:28
Sack Thelwell on Monday!
The squad that has been assembled under his management is incompetent.
He has allowed Jackett, Zenga, Edwards and probably Lambert to be the scapegoats.
Get rid Jeff, or Fosun may remove you!

27 Nov 2016 12:29:02
I thought you said sack Lambert then for a minute lol, coffee hasn't kicked in yet.
I agree Thelwell needs to go as soon as possible, I also agree with what others have said Lambert must have a say in future new signings.

27 Nov 2016 13:15:52
Excellent post, jimmyjones. Couldn't have said it any better myself.

27 Nov 2016 23:44:56
Foson will buy survival. That will start to happen on Jan 1. Lambert will be working now on who he needs. Several of the current squad will be surplus to requirements and will leave. Proven players required: 2 defenders, 2 creative midfield, 2 goal scorers. don't count on many points between now and January. Keep turning up - no boos, only cheers. let's be the twelfth man!

29 Nov 2016 11:37:17
With Wigan winning at Huddersfield last night it puts we right in the relegation dog fight and a gap of 4 points to Barnsley means there is a gap being created, we have to start picking up points not excuses and what Dangerous Dave Edwards says and other players in our team who don't perform for us, we Wolves fans have had enough of excuses from these so called footballers we have, who cannot defend, cannot create, and have not got a clue were the net is.
All in All we are in a mess, the team needs a complete change from front to back we are no were good enough, and Thelwell needs to be moved out with other back room staff who sanctioned these silly sighning of rubbish players who would not get in a Sunday works team, the Paul Gladen sighning makes me so angry these sort of sighnings are the problems and until they are corrected by getting shut of the person or persons who were responsible for these sort of sighnings we are going nowhere only relegation which I'm afraid is happening unless Lambert can change it round quickly starting at Q. P. R.
Positives, the fans they turned up in there thousands again to be entertained and were sadly let down big time again, when are we going to learn everything is in place except a team of under performing footballers who ought to be ashamed of there selves.

29 Nov 2016 19:48:17
Agreed bigwolf. They have no self respect or self esteem. We need players who have both. Are up for the game from the first to last whistle, get stuck in. If there not up to it then bugger off and play somewhere else. There are plenty of players out there that would relish the chance to get on with it!

26 Nov 2016 20:48:25
Without meaning to state the obvious we are in serious trouble and everyone hanging on till January to sort it out. well it might be too late by then.

But what really disheartened me today is that yes we all know the obvious players who aren't good enough but there was a player there today who I watched put his hands on his hips, drop his head and give up in front of my eyes.

and he's the one player who out of all the dross we've bought has actually tried and showed talent and ability in abundance. that player is Costa.
I feel were doomed.

26 Nov 2016 21:26:26
This was meant to be the Wolves back in business but nothing has changed It is a battle to stay up now.

27 Nov 2016 17:51:39
It's now time to get some balls! Far to larger squad, needs cutting back by 8/ 9. Most of the loaners can go. Not all! Then get some tried and tested goal scoring strikers, midfield and at the back. Sako works well with dicko if he's staying have a pop at trying to get him back. He can cut it at this level as we all know. Now is when we need quality and tried and tested to take us forward and beyond. Otherwise the light at the end of the tunnel were all looking for will stay dark! 👍.

26 Nov 2016 17:27:38
PL is looking to end James Henry's loan at Bolton Wanderers early and wants to recall the winger.

Felipe Santana who plays for Kuban Krasndor has been heavily scouted and an offer of €2,000,000.00 has been made.

26 Nov 2016 18:14:57
Can't believe this. Saville gets ahead of Saiss and Oniangue. Now you're telling me Henry gets ahead of Cavaliero and Costa. How,? I thought we were supposed to be going forward?

26 Nov 2016 18:30:51
To top if off, we had Bright ahead of Dicko in the week, lol. I'm sure the owners love the starting 11 being a league one team.

26 Nov 2016 18:46:36
At game today - relegation fodder. Will need to rebuild from League One.

26 Nov 2016 19:15:54
Glad i`m not the one who has to sort this lot out. A disgrace from back to front. Weakest defence/ midfield in the league IMO. First time I have left the game early for a long time. Jan` can`t come soon enough.

26 Nov 2016 19:38:39
Borthwick Jackson will be recalled by Man Utd. Ola John and Teixaria will have their loans terminated by PL. Helder Costa will be recalled by Benfica. Iorfa will be sold and replaced by James Collins. Need someone like Steven Cook to come in alongside Collins to shore up our defence. Not bothered by Ola John or Text leaving as we have Jordan Graham to come in but would hate to lose Costa.

26 Nov 2016 19:42:33
Bye bye Wallace, Iorfa, Stearman, Ola John, Teixaria, Borthwick Jackson, Saville, Gladon and unfortunately Costa. Hello Steven Cook, James Collins and Nakhi Wells.

26 Nov 2016 19:49:19
I reckon Jas will be pretty spot on with those predictions.

26 Nov 2016 19:52:45
Saiss and Onion can`t be worse than Saville and Coady. can they?

26 Nov 2016 20:06:18
James Henry was quality for us in the championship up until he had a bad run! What has cavaliero done that I'm missing, he is mildly average at best lacking any end product and look lazy! Helder costa is twice the player he is and think Henry could do a shift for wolves given the chance now he has playing time under his belt.

26 Nov 2016 21:43:55
Bring back Henry and Sako with Dicko up front and Edwards behind him well let's bring back Kenny Jackett too.

26 Nov 2016 22:07:13
It seems that Iorfa is a walking disaster. Maybe Danny Batth is not as bad as we thought but is looking poor as he has to constantly cover for Iorfas mistakes. Need to do something drastic now against QPR. I would suggest a 352 formation with Ikeme, Hause, Batth and Saiss at the back. Cavaleiro, Costa, Oniangue, Edwards and Coady in midfield with Dicko and Bodvarsson up front.

26 Nov 2016 23:06:26
The best thing PL could do is get Sako back and just play 4-5-1, like old times: Dicko up front with Edwards behind him with Sako/ Graham on the wings. Then Price or Saiss holding. At least the players would understand that.

Makes you wonder why we didn't just stay with Jackett, too, lol.

27 Nov 2016 08:58:42
I may be the only person who supports Iorfa on this chat but he isn't that bad. I seriously think with all the money we have we s.

27 Nov 2016 17:58:02
Did you stop typing because the alcohol finally consumed you co's if you think iorfa isn't that bad your deluded. he's the worst defender iv ever seen.

27 Nov 2016 18:47:17
Timtoo33. That's saying something if he can be worse than Neil Collins. At least Collins scored every now and then.

27 Nov 2016 20:45:11
I'd have Collins over him every time mate. he's a liability. oh what I'd give for a Dean Richards rest his soul or a young lescott .

28 Nov 2016 07:29:00
George Saville scores now and then too.

25 Nov 2016 21:04:10
Jordan Rhodes signing in January would be a fantastic addition.

26 Nov 2016 01:18:27
We should be going for Hernandez and Rhodes. I know about his connection to SB obviously, but still worth a punt. He's better than McCormack. I know keep dreaming. 😴.

26 Nov 2016 11:56:18
Dream on we're in a relegation battle we won't be going for players like that.

26 Nov 2016 12:53:29
We'd be better going for Britt Assombalonga, would fit well in our squad with Cavaleiro and Costa whipping balls into the box, and he would compliment Dicko well, a front 4 of Cavaleiro Costa Dicko Assombalonga would scare any defence in this division, and would be arguably a better forward line than when we had Afobe Dicko and Sako. Maybe return to. Defence of Hause Batth Stearman Iorfa, the defence that was most successful in recent times. With Price and Saiss protecting the back 4 and allowing the front 4 a bit more attacking freedom.

26 Nov 2016 13:30:25
Would take that!

26 Nov 2016 14:09:55
That's precisely why we should be going for players like that summer! To demonstrate ambition and to give us a real chance of reaching the playoffs. These are two players that know where the net is and could cut it in the prem. I'll kee dreaming though. 😉.

26 Nov 2016 14:29:35
I still think, with Sako available for around £4m, he is still the best alternative. He could play alongside Dicko, too.
