e/ s reporting ronan will not play again this season due to back stress fracture, way back for sassis then,
23 Feb 2017 11:52:43
Just as he was breaking into the team. Feel for him. Fortunately we have other options even with Cav out of the squad and Oniangue away on loan. Move Edwards to the wing and play Saiss and Price in the middle, should help get the ball to 2 forwards, Bod and one other.
23 Feb 2017 14:25:26
tony daley for fitness coach of the year?
23 Feb 2017 15:22:22
I don't know what others think about this, but what about making Bodvarsson a box to box central midfielder? He has all the attributes for this role. Tell me what you think please?
23 Feb 2017 16:04:20
How about as a goalkeeper because he is very tall?
23 Feb 2017 16:08:08
Certainly can't win the ball in the air where it matters, in front of goal, Mick would 'av had him at "left-back " by now!
23 Feb 2017 17:46:50
If we still had MM, there's only 1 guy that would still be our left back.
23 Feb 2017 22:55:57
you know what i mean.
23 Feb 2017 10:54:21
Connor Ronan out injured now may not feature again this season article on E+S.
19 Feb 2017 14:26:38
Having watched the lambert interview, he is buzzing to be at wolves. he says he's met one of the owners for first time and they're behind him. do not be surprised if we spend £25 million plus on players in the Summer. lambert probably already knows who he wants and the players he wants out. I personally trust that he will deliver players on par with the likes of gayle, hogan etc. uptw.
19 Feb 2017 18:00:17
Dimir Berbatov is a free agent. . worth a punt until the end of this season, pay per game oy by goals scored?
19 Feb 2017 18:03:25
It really is hard to tell how will be shown the door, as PL is giving chances to players who were deemed to be of no use.
19 Feb 2017 18:08:36
I am still on the fence at the moment. I really want PL to do well and work but our league performances have been shoddy and this hoof ball against poor lower league teams dose not work. We need CB, CM, CF.
19 Feb 2017 23:50:40
Wednesfield W you must know two quality strikers alone would be in the order of 24/ 25 mil. So now we need strengthening in midfield and at least one at the back. Total of at least 5 players of note!
21 Feb 2017 10:48:45
I think we just need to get this season out of the way, hopefully safely, . Surely forsun have learned a thing or two, with the zenga disaster.
Hopefully Lambert can get a good summer under his belt, and then we can push on.
The next two months are critical for the club and Lambert.
22 Feb 2017 12:16:21
No doubts. Lambert is the man to take us back up.
Give him a full summer with the lads. Remember, neither Zenga nor PL have had time with the players. PL knows who he wants to keep, let go and sign.
He'll see us ok til May. Give him the summer to implicate his ideas and then. only then, if it's not working by the January window say it's time for him to go. Trust in the guy. Better him than Brucie or Rowett.
22 Feb 2017 20:19:31
Been given some info today.
Listen to PL over the weekend.
You may get a clue to the future.
22 Feb 2017 20:49:06
Yes I've heard realist and to be honest I'm not all surprised looks like we're looking at youth again people, and it also looks like the Mendes band wagon is coming back to Monlinieux hopefully no Gladons come are way and more Costa.
22 Feb 2017 21:49:08
A clue to the future? Is this like The Da Vinci Code?
15 Feb 2017 19:39:00
Rio ave defender rodrick mirinanda was a target in jan, but now looks like a summer buy according to portugeuse press.
15 Feb 2017 22:46:48
There's a shock spent 10 years at Benfica before moving to Rio Ave got to be one of Mendes'
15 Feb 2017 23:35:59
There's going to be a big conflict of interests between Mendes, who wants to bring in more Portuguese players, and Lambert, who steadfastly wants British. Basically we are looking at an exciting foreigner coming in, only to be replaced by Richard Stearman after one game, who will be given a new 4 year contract, lol.
17 Feb 2017 18:22:39
If Stearman is sign permanently come June I will be absolutely fuming! No wonder we are in so much trouble, as the squad is man up of players of the same standard as Stearman;NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIP! Stearman should have been sent back to Fulham in January! Nice lad but, I detest watching him play!
17 Feb 2017 18:39:31
We are really regressing under Lambert. He needs to wake up and smell the coffee the side he is playing is crap. Where's Saiss, Bodvarson needs to start over Dicko, the only good players we have at the mo is Costa and Ronan. Iorfa is only good when he's on good form. Just need a better lot of players, I'd like to see Ronan starting over mason who I've never rated in the first place. Have Edwards keep captain and Evans sent to league 2 where he belongs. Join Saville and Lonergan too. Loan out Iorfa to a prem side to get experience, and buy buy buy and get promoted simple as.
18 Feb 2017 08:12:48
Buy buy buy! Get promoted simple! We have the 3rd biggest spend this year at 28 million. Its not about throwing money at it and getting a quick fix. Villa have spent 65 million this year, have had countless players coming and going and almost as many managers. It clearly doesn't work. We need maybe 2 or 3 seasons of progression under Lambert. Support him, let him do his job and get some stability back at wolves. There is no quick fix.
18 Feb 2017 11:08:16
Pity we can't send Batth back to Fulham and keep Stears. When fully fit, Stears is definitely the better of the two.
18 Feb 2017 11:28:05
Well you might laugh at these suggestions but, I did say give Edwards a go up front or just behind front man and it seams everyone seams to like the idea now with our striker situation, because he is not a skillful player and does not create much, but gives is best we have nothing to lose, you could put Saiss back in middle then, to be quite honest it's seams strange to me, how he cannot get in team with players we have, perhaps Lambert don't like him.
The other suggestion I said at the time was that we could do no worse than get Warnock in to manage us before Lambert on short term contract to get we sorted out, he nows what is needed in this division look what he done at Rotherham and what he is doing at Cardiff now with average players, horses for courses I say.
18 Feb 2017 17:53:35
Warnock, no thanks. Gary Rowett or Brucie (after sacking from Villa), yes please.
18 Feb 2017 20:53:16
Stick with Lambert we need to stop chopping and changing get a core to the team. Thought they were amazing today just can't score. Desperately need new strikers.
19 Feb 2017 11:08:18
What if we get Rowett or Brucie and they go on a 4 match loosing streak? Then who's next on the list?
19 Feb 2017 17:45:42
I agree, keeping Lambo might be a better idea until Christmas, then review again afterwards.
14 Feb 2017 22:11:40
Do fellow fans still think it's good times at wolves. the reality is were in a relegation fight. the question is are fans going to speak. the other question is who is to blame and are we going to ignore January was the perfect time to sign players we need to compete in this league. you can continue to call me negative for stating facts that some fans choose to ignore.
14 Feb 2017 23:37:05
I think the cup run has papered over the cracks massively! My concern is why give Dicko, Evans etc new contracts when surely the end goal is promotion and these players aren't good enough! If we don't beat Chelsea the euphoria of the cup run will diminish and reality will strike home to a lot of wolves fans and Fosun! 18th in a mediocre championship is pathetic! Just look at our home form also! Is Lambert the man? The jury's still out with me, but he needs to sort it or he will def be sacked!
15 Feb 2017 07:14:29
We're all fed up of it Wednesfield but you only seam to be happy when we lose.
15 Feb 2017 09:13:02
Relegation fodder. Will finish second from bottom snd relegated with Rotherham and Aston Villa. Could experience a double relegation to League Two by 2018. This is the weakest Wolves team ever.
15 Feb 2017 09:46:07
Tristan you weren't around in the mid eighties if you think this is the worst wolves team ever.
15 Feb 2017 09:31:37
I can see Gary Rowett coming in or someone of that ilk. The problem, as mentioned, is giving contracts to players like Evans or Price. If you have a team consisting of league one players, the inevitable will happen.
I thought the new regime was to improve the squad with quality, sadly the opposite is happening and us Wolves fans just can't understand why.
15 Feb 2017 11:51:09
Wavid don't you think we are in this position because we keep changing managers. The dross needs to be shipped out which will happen end of the season a few were moved on in Jan so expect a lot more in the summer.
As stated a. Umber of times the spine in the squad needs to be addressed when Costa doesn't score we don't either. Expect Chelsea to double up on him the weekend and we will have nothing.
Forum must be wondering what the hell is going on it could've be worse we could have bought everyone and still be losing like Villa.
15 Feb 2017 12:46:03
Fair comment Darbo'giving long contract renewals to players that have consistently failed to deliver is the main mistake, managers fall out of favour'when they lead a struggling team, but all too often it's mediocre players that are to blame for poor results and performances'why these contracts were handed to the players who have been mentioned on this site before is beyond me, they should have had their contracts ran down.
Midfield is a huge problem for us, saiss and prince must surely have been worth a punt, I doubt they could do any worse than the ones who are currently in the squad.
15 Feb 2017 13:20:02
I think the biggest thing missing is a commanding CH who can control the line and push the team upfield. The gap between the lines when attacking are massive. I think Ibrahimovic would struggle to score in this team atm.
Only way we will improve is if Williamson can stay fit and then address this situation in the summer.
15 Feb 2017 14:09:40
Agree 100% guys we are in trouble we all know what the problems are and that's the spine of the team Ikeme, Batth, Stearman, Saville, Evans, Dicko and Bod, are all lower end championship players at best and to offer new contracts to these players in my opinion is a joke and doesn't show the ambition of a club looking for premier league football. On the plus side OMG what a player young Connor Ronan looks great first touch looks to play forward at all times and he's not scared to have the ball and for a skinny little runt he can hit a football as well.
15 Feb 2017 22:10:32
You have to laugh! We beat Liverpool away followed by a great away win 3-1 at Barnsley! Everyone's happy, Lambert's getting loads of praise, and there was some silly talk of the playoffs! Then 3, yes just 3, games later and it's all doom and gloom and were going down. Unbelievable!
15 Feb 2017 22:10:10
I honestly think Zenga would have done better than PL, only because he would have been picking the best 11 players (including Prince, Saiss, Tex etc) every week. The only problem with this is that we wouldn't have seen the emergence of Burgoine, Bright, Ronan and Gibbs White. Basically, you can't win.
Yes, it's all a bit of a mess, but it shouldn't take much sorting when yet another new manager comes in this summer, lol. In this case, I strongly recommend Rowett, who would jump at the chance. I get the feeling, though, that a nuclear bomb won't shift Edwards, Price, Batth and co.
16 Feb 2017 13:28:14
I am getting fed up of people saying "why are giving Evans" a contract or "Dicko" they are not good enough and not the standard we should be signing.
Look - we are rich and have money to spend. Due to FFP restrictions you need to maximum every possible asset on the books. If we give these lads a contract we can demand more money for them when they are moved on for new, fresh talent. We cannot afford to let people leave for nothing (out of contract) or for a tiny amount of market value due to contact length.
Yes we are in a relegation scrap, yes the cup run is providing us a much needed distraction but stick with the team and Lambert. He is currently playing a style to try and keep us up. He has stopped our defenders playing out the back and wants them to hit a channel in order to fight for the second ball and play. I truly believe he will be asking NEW defenders to play out the back into midfield and keep the ball more.
This can't happen overnight and it won't happen with Batth and Stearman.
Patience guys, its tough and painful but we will survive and we will be a very strong team next year.
17 Feb 2017 11:07:02
Very sensible talk wolvesgeek. Totally agree. You've just expressed some of the things I mentioned on here a few days ago. It's difficult being patient I know as does everyone else. PL must be as frustrated as the rest of us at times. Whether he is the man for the long term, I would have to say time will tell! Whether he will get it is another question all together! I was and still am of the opinion that Silva would have done a good job for us. Just a feeling combined with his track record. Hmmm! ⚽️👍😉.
14 Feb 2017 21:47:40
Div 1 here we come, can't see where the next points coming from.
14 Feb 2017 22:55:58
Calm down mate, were not going to be going down. We will stay in mid table where we belong at the mo and hope that next season we can turn things around.
14 Feb 2017 23:23:52
Well said Wolves011. We ain't going down, we ain't going up. Lambert needs to overhaul the squad in the summer and bring in players who HE, not us, thinks can improve us.
15 Feb 2017 07:23:59
Only 6 points off relegation. 15 games to go. No striker has scored since August. I wish I was as confident as you.
15 Feb 2017 08:12:15
I'm. Confident we will stop up to
Stop being doom merchants.
15 Feb 2017 08:17:33
Having your two main strikers only scoring two goals all season, has got to be some kind of shite record.
15 Feb 2017 09:30:13
Wolves record home FA Cup defeat v. Derby 3-6 in 1933. Record FA Cup defeat v. Rotherham 0-6 in 1985. Record defeat v. Newton Heath (Man. Utd. ) 1-10 in 1892. Will they create a new record v. Chelsea on Saturday?
15 Feb 2017 10:19:04
We are by no means a great team at the moment, but we are better than quite a few teams in this league and we should finish just below mid table. We have enough experience in this league for that.
15 Feb 2017 09:59:16
Look at the core of the team - Stearman, Batth, Price, Saville, Evans, Coady, Edwards. 18th is exactly the correct position for a club with those players in it, isn't it? The saying 'you reap what you sow' definitely comes to mind when you think about the crazy decision to sign all of those up to long term contracts.
We go from one extreme, to another.
15 Feb 2017 13:02:39
Absolutely agree wavidsmith! All players mentioned are Div 1 standard
so why are we surprised we are 18th?
To retain these players is poor decision-making, no one wants them, so if we are down next year, fine, sign them for the season, it will be their right level.
We spend £20+ million on 2 wingers, exciting! and then retain these donkeys. what is going on?!
15 Feb 2017 14:51:23
Well at last, we Wolves fans all agree on one thing, and that is, why have we given these players long term contracts, when they are not good enough, although they play to the best of there ability, I'm afraid they are average middle to bottom championship players or Division 1 end of.
I would like to now who is responsible for giving these players long term contracts, and who sighned that Paul Gladon, whoever is responsible I would have them sacked, disgraceful performance last night no entertainment whatsoever, except the kid conor Ronan he was very good.
LAMBERT NO MORE EXCUSES, YOU THINK THESE PLAYERS ARE GREAT, YOU SAID YOU DIDN'T NEED STRIKER, SO ON YOUR HEAD BE IT.
15 Feb 2017 19:13:39
All the posts above are very valid,
But I do think Lambert is the right man for the job. I just think the job is a lot bigger than he thought,
We all want wolves players to do well, but to be honest everyone of them could be replaced at the moment it's just not happening.
15 Feb 2017 22:15:13
I honestly think PL's job is on the line and, sadistically, I want it to be as Gary Rowett is somehow still available. Let's all hope he doesn't take the Forest job in the meantime because we need someone like that so desperately.
16 Feb 2017 20:45:20
I like to see our kids come through and also think we have some good kids.
But what worried me was playing so many in a 6 pointer, when a more experienced side would of been bette, Evans and Edwards in midfield done nothing, said all along if you play Edwards because of is goalscoring exploits, then play him upfield or just behind striker, nobody else scoring up there, but
if these pair are our future midfield, then we can forget about promotion, they are just average championship players and realy thought we would be looking for a better class of players next season for the midfield positions, hope I am proved wrong but dissopointing in there long term contracts.
Defence same again makeing same mistakes, Marshall didn't look fit, and not a shot at goal against another poor side.
14 Feb 2017 19:25:32
Sherwin Seedorf has signed for Wolves after impressing whilst on trial.
10 Feb 2017 20:44:01
Dicko will play out of his skin against Newcastle and score at least 2 goals, which will be the start of a rich vein of goal scoring form.
10 Feb 2017 21:05:41
He will have to if he has to make all those chances himself because Price, Evans and Savlon are behind him.
Incidently, i just had a really good idea about a the new striker everyone so desperately craves on here. Che Adams.
10 Feb 2017 22:05:35
No if we want someone young who could do a good job it's Ennis we don't need to spend pounds on a striker that we could use in the youth academy.
My transfer shopping list next season:
A new GK
A new CB-Reuben Vezo anyone?
A new CDM-Bruno Paulista anyone?
A new CAM to fight with Edwards
A new striker Sebastian Haller?
A new young striker to try and break into the first team? Cummings?
11 Feb 2017 10:40:34
I admit it. You got me. I googled Vezo and Paulista.
11 Feb 2017 20:17:23
Clivewolves what's that supposed to mean?
11 Feb 2017 21:39:28
Read somewhere that Paulista has a 45 million Euro release clause.
12 Feb 2017 08:33:30
Hang on a minute aren't we meant to be back by Fosun who said they would spend £30 million on our transfer budget in the summer. So it could be possible I believe Vezo is another player that Mendes is an agent of.
12 Feb 2017 10:14:42
Players in Portugal only have set release clauses like that because it's a legal requirement there. In reality, deals are much cheaper.
13 Feb 2017 16:17:23
I didn't mean anything by it. It's just I've never heard of them and so I had to gooogle their names. Your knowledge of European football is far better than mine. I find it hard to find the time to watch English football, never mind the Portuguese league.
13 Feb 2017 19:03:53
Evans and Saville to be offered new deals. I know what you're thinking.
13 Feb 2017 21:03:10
Fair enough Clivewolves.
14 Feb 2017 12:07:57
You would gave heard of them if you played football manager. Unfortunately this is reality and non of those players will come to wolves.
14 Feb 2017 12:47:59
Jtwolf it's just a suggestion. I know that Mendes has links with Sporting Lisbon as well as Porto and Benfica, he also is with Valencia and most of the big clubs in spain. So actually it's highly likely that both those players could be picked out of a hat of players by Fosun and signed.
14 Feb 2017 16:58:06
We should definitely be playing our Mendes card with regards to new signings. Get in some raw talent like Jose Gomes at Benfica.
14 Feb 2017 21:25:33
I'm sure by the amount of flops from mendes suggestions, Costa the only exception, and the fact Lambert wants championship experience, the players mentioned don't have much chance of coming.
15 Feb 2017 03:15:19
Very true, some are risks for this league but how about Nelson Olveria. His agent is Mendes and he has no problem scoring for Norwich in the championship.
09 Feb 2017 22:49:03
We were all still celebrating from the liverpool and barnsley win and got done by burton. lambert is a class act, the problem was the summer. come this summer we will see proven quality come through the door. and the likes of Savile gone.
10 Feb 2017 08:16:44
Hope your right Wednesfield 👍.
10 Feb 2017 19:09:40
I hope PL is looking at the same crystal ball as you Wednesfield.
10 Feb 2017 20:54:53
PL did say recently that he doesn't use social media, so any message to him is pointless.
09 Feb 2017 11:59:39
Been told that Wolves looked at Kevin Friesenbichler in the window but look to move for him in the summer.
09 Feb 2017 13:33:08
I see he's on loan from Benfica, not very prolific. Hope we look for better in the summer. Next season will be a make or break for Lambert, he needs to stand his ground and make sure he brings players in he wants as failure will cost him his job. Hopefully he brings quality in and plays his strongest 11 week in week out not this stupid rotation system when the squad is nowhere near good enough to achieve promotion.
09 Feb 2017 16:20:16
I'm sure Paul Lambert will take on those wise words, good to know your here to advise him PT.
09 Feb 2017 18:23:00
Not sure why people get so vexed about rotation. Zenga did it to understand what he has been given.
Lambert does it so he can work out what is worth keeping for next season (not too much quality there Paul! ) .
This season is over, as long as we can avoid relegation.
The squad assembled in the last few years is good enough for Third Tier, no better.
We are 18th, we need quality at the Back, Middle and Front. Apart from that we will be contenders!
Lambert has now bought in 3 of his own (I include Costa) . So just 8+ needed!
09 Feb 2017 18:24:28
He doesn't listen though Jtwolf or he'd of played Dadi and Price on Saturday!
09 Feb 2017 18:29:15
Good enough to beat two prem teams but still working towards consistency.
09 Feb 2017 19:18:52
Thats the dilemma guys Evans and Saville play well against Prem opposition but can't hack it in the Chump. Price can but won't hack it in the Orem. It's a conundrum alright.
09 Feb 2017 21:51:42
The type of player we should look at in the summer is Jack Wiltshire. He is a class act who may not stay, probably won't at Bournemouth and could be sold by Arsenal. Could, that is, as they Arsenal are doing well without him.
I don't expect he would want to drop down a league and it would be a highly unlikely move for him to come to us. However, having seen him play several times this season there's no denying he's a class act. Just what we need in midfield. He's seems over his injuries. 👍⚽️😉 Wishful thinking by me I know. It's his level of skill we need amongst others.
09 Feb 2017 22:46:39
The biggest letdown is Saiss and Oniangue. We all thought we wouldn't have to worry about the midfield again when they both arrived, yet we're STILL arguing about the old shitty players like Price, Evans and Saville. Really, really frustrating and always will be until a manager actually has the cahooners to bin them forever. Same goes for the pathetic Batth, Stears, Iorfa, Hause arguement we've been having every single week for the last 4 years. When will this change, ?
All the fans want is to go forward and see something new, yet all we ever get is reverting to type. Why can't managers see that half of out team are league one standard?
Here's a few for example: Batth, Stears, Iorfa, Hause, Coady, Saville, Price (take the goggles off Price fans), Edwards (disrupts everything we ever try to do), Mason, Bright. That's an entire team of league one players! If I can see it, why can't PL? It's a complete mystery to everybody why he feels the need to constantly back these second rate players. Maybe someone can explain?
09 Feb 2017 23:24:04
Batth, Stearman and Edwards certainly did ok 2 years ago when we missed out on the play offs on goal difference. Did you moan about them then? Or were they good enough. I know what the club should do. They should give the manager £100m to spend because that's a guaranteed way to achieve success. Just ask Villa and QPR fans. Wavidsmith if it is that simple why do you not write directly to the club and work as an advisor. You clearly know what your talking about.
10 Feb 2017 00:34:38
Agree entirely with PT we should play the best 11 as often as we can. Saville and Evans seem capable of playing above themselves for the special occasion and that's it, then they revert back to being poor players. These two cost us dearly at Burton as they were both very weak and we were left with nothing in midfield. No playmaker so only one option 'lump it'.
I hate the rotation system that does not allow time for any regular familiarity between the players, and often results in weaker teams, and as a result poor results alia 'Burton'
Why highly paid professional footballers are unable to play two games a week I really don't know. I remember when Wolves regularly played three games over the Easter period alone. I could name the team now that played in those games in the 60's, as the players simply roll off your tongue. The best players played in every game.
PL is doing great and my only criticism would be on the rotation system and the replacement of good players for bad ones.
Also on Prince and Saiss they are both good players in my opinion. Why let Prince go on loan and keep the other two donkeys I mentioned earlier. Seems crazy to me!
10 Feb 2017 12:28:54
Being honest and when you look at our squad, as much that we love our team how many players would make it in premier league if we were to get promoted, not many if any, that's the sad conclusion I have come to and what's worrying although we have all this money with the Fosun group why do we give long term contracts to players such as Dicho, Edwards and Bathe etc.
As much as they have been good players for Wolves over the years, surely it's time to get better players in, well I would of expected better players, although the players mentioned are good players they need to be replaced now, enough is enough and it needs changing next year along with a lot more players not mentioned for we to improve, or we can stay were we are with the sort of players we have and finish around mid table but is that exceptable by Fosun only time will tell.
10 Feb 2017 17:12:12
Has somebody really suggested Wilshere? Hilarious.
10 Feb 2017 17:57:33
Can't quite get to grips whether Wavid believes himself or not. I bet he's one of those people who think Gerard and Lampard were terrible players.
10 Feb 2017 20:00:36
A little smile came upon my face when i read wiltshire, too. Signing Lampard would have been a good idea last week.
11 Feb 2017 07:19:23
I've heard aguero could be on his way out of man city. Wishful thinking I know.
