I have a translation of a Rumanian sports paper article which tells of what happened to Wolves' 2 attempts to sign a striker:

Wolverhampton Wanderers agents went to Romania and to the Netherlands to negotiate the transfer terms of FCSB’s Romanian striker Denis Alibec (26) and Dutchman Jurgen Locadia (23) from PSV Eindhoven.

Due to the extremely short time of the transfer period, Wolves management set out to acquire the two players to prevent a double failure and Wolverhampton prepared emergency options for Alibec or Locadia to carry out the medical before midnight.

The agent who arrived in Bucharest immediately entered into talks with Valeriu Argaseala, the offer being 10 million euros, of which 10 percent was to be returned to the agent. If FCSB agreed to the sum, Wolverhampton had prepared a written offer.

Alibec agreed personal terms (a weekly salary of nearly 25,000 euros) that would have earned him a five times higher income than in Romania!
The talks lasted until around 7pm, but they came to a standstill due to George Becali's request. The financier raised the price to 15 million euros, 50 percent more than Wolves offered. €25 million is Denis Alibec's buyout clause set out in his FCSB contract.

Knowing about the block in the negotiations in Romania, the heads of Wolverhampton urged the transfer of Jurgen Locadia and flew him in at 7pm local time by private plane to the Wolverhampton. Locadia was undergoing a full medical visit when his transfer collapsed!

PSV coach Phillip Cocu decided to keep Locadia due to the failure of the negotiations with an attacker chosen to replace Locadia, so the English club missed out, but managed to loan in the defensive midfielder Alfred N'Diaye from Villarreal.
Alibec stayed at FCSB after a Summer of talks with English clubs, Stoke City, Hull City and Wolverhampton.

We left it late but we had a bloody good try.

2.) 19 Sep 2017 18:25:15
Yes we did . Onwards and upwards COYW.

3.) 19 Sep 2017 20:24:23
Who's this buur guy who's starting today.

4.) 20 Sep 2017 11:27:18
Interesting, especially as the club have come out and said signing a striker wasn't a priority. Private planes on deadline day shows it being a clear priority.

5.) 20 Sep 2017 14:26:34
Irrespective of the priorities, which change dependant upon many external factors, Wolves have shown new values which are constant and consistant.
The fact that we have the calibre to have tried to do business in this way and not be blackmailed into paying over the odds is world class business practice, rather than getting into the reactive cattle market of football that many clubs fall into.
We are in safe hands. I suspect that the two strikers we were chasing may already be on our radar for January.



18 Jul 2016 19:55:07
20th July we will know if first consortium has been successful, is what I am be told.


1.) 18 Jul 2016 20:06:23
Who is first consortium?

2.) 18 Jul 2016 20:16:37
Who as told you this Derbywolf, well not the name we now you will not say that but give us a clue say 80% 90% or are you 100% sure or are you another shit fan in disguise jelous of us being taken over.

3.) 18 Jul 2016 20:20:49

4.) 18 Jul 2016 20:35:36
As time goes on and on I'm feeling more that the spanish map dos'nt show Brom and someone pointed at Wolverhampton.! and they looked up wolves and ran it. Please let it not be the s**** . The thought of Moxey heading a takeover makes me sick. Its a pain now and if nothing else we should be given some kind of statement. The club are not giving a t*** about us. What a way to carry on.

5.) 18 Jul 2016 21:29:54
Another ITK who knows nothing, come on you lot just wait for announcement, nobody knows nothing, not even the players, so sandwell fans, bored kids, drama queens, attention seekers, jog on!

6.) 18 Jul 2016 21:30:39
Bigwolf fully understand your sentiment, l have known some stuff for weeks and frankly doing my head in. So I an wire happy to divulge privately to the editor my season ticket number etc to verify.
I do not know who is involved on the leading consortium, but we all will know in 48 hours if they have been successful or not.
If not successful I know of 2 consortium's in line waiting.
Information is from two sources I have know for a lot of years and trust. Both devote Wolves fans.

7.) 18 Jul 2016 21:41:04
More drivel.

8.) 18 Jul 2016 21:41:09
So less than 48 hours and we will if my info is correct.

9.) 18 Jul 2016 21:42:11
I take it if they are successful we will hear later in the week then?

10.) 18 Jul 2016 21:43:43
Who are the other 2 consortiums involved if the first one fails?

11.) 18 Jul 2016 21:47:20
It's Tweedledum and Tweedledee's consortium's.

12.) 18 Jul 2016 22:00:40

Paul t next group on line is Chinese but does not include Robin Li. They will come in if first group do not finalise on 20th July.
Third group are a mixture, mainly Europeans, they were impressed with the while c set up and with Morgan!
Information from two separate sources who I have known for a long time and neither would make it up that's for sure.
I apologise now for telling you this I should have just said something like "squeaky bum time is 20 July"
Again happy to verify to editor I am season ticket holder.

13.) 18 Jul 2016 22:03:57
What a load of tosh. fact is since nda signed we will not hear nothing until its completed. its as simple as that.

14.) 18 Jul 2016 22:08:23
Just say who it is, the football league or fa have had the paperwork. Give a big clue else?

15.) 18 Jul 2016 22:10:06
Correct you won't took 20th July.

16.) 18 Jul 2016 22:10:11
Are these Americans or British then?

17.) 18 Jul 2016 22:11:07
Ed thanks for taking out my rude comment!

{Ed003's Note - more the point it could cause the thread to end up a row,no need.}

18.) 18 Jul 2016 22:16:45
Do 2nd consortium is Chinese 3rd is European wbu the main one.

19.) 18 Jul 2016 22:16:54
Sorry Paul what are you asking me?

20.) 18 Jul 2016 22:33:11
No Brits, no Americans and no Moxey.

21.) 18 Jul 2016 22:37:13
I think the uncertainty is starting to get us all fearful of the coming season and let's face it no one really knows what's going on. Derby Wolf I appreciate you have contacts but why would only the first consortium have a deadline and why would it fail I'm not sure. Surely the only reason any will fail is the fit and proper test by the league and let's face it if the Leeds owner can pass then anyone can. It will be interesting if a takeover goes through who will come on here and say my contacts full of it. We'll see.

22.) 18 Jul 2016 22:57:05
If u know 2 out the 3, as a Wolves fan which would be the best one for the club in your opinion.

23.) 18 Jul 2016 22:58:56
Darbo I am not after glory of any kind
Should have kept my mouth shut, sorry made a mistake giving out what I knew.

24.) 19 Jul 2016 07:57:32
Hope your right Derby, and hope the 1st consortium is wealthy and ambitious.

25.) 19 Jul 2016 09:25:00
Derby I wasn't looking to shoot you down sorry if you thought that. I would be happy to get new owners in sooner rather than later and I hope you're right at least your posts differs to a lot of others jumping on the band wagon and saying they are ITK.

26.) 19 Jul 2016 09:53:15
Nobody am in the know. let alone people writing crap on here. we've had a announcement every day for the last 3 weeks.

27.) 19 Jul 2016 05:58:42
Isn't Blackpool's owner a convicted rapist? Or was that after he's already purchased the club? Or does 'fit and proper' only cover finances and that?

{Ed003's Note - After }

28.) 19 Jul 2016 16:11:03
I think you have to look at the Blackpools owner father Mr Owen Oysten for the answer to that question!

{Ed001's Note - Owen is the owner, Karl, the son, is the chairman.}

29.) 19 Jul 2016 16:27:43
All I can say is the wait is killing us all.

30.) 19 Jul 2016 21:09:55
The same ITK people who posted it would happen last week? Just keep singing tomorrow tomorrow.



29 Jun 2016 12:19:12
So, what is the latest regarding a buy out?
All these guys in the know what is the latest?
See if it matches with what I know.


1.) 29 Jun 2016 12:43:39
Robin Li? Worth over 14 billion dollars?

2.) 29 Jun 2016 12:57:11
DerbyWolf. I know nothing but either we are being taken over, or, the situation is worse than I thought. OK, we bought a cheap 'keeper, but it was essential to bring one in anyway. Nothing else has happened, and that is hardly normal even for Wolves.

3.) 29 Jun 2016 14:14:10
I feel sure Deep Throat it is not the latter so try to stay positive, what I was told took me by surprise as I have known the guy for a long time and he does not make up stories especially like this.
He didn't appreciate Non disclosure so explained it and he appreciates the need for silence, for now
We won't have to wait long.

4.) 29 Jun 2016 22:06:59
I said a bout a week ago things had gone to quiet at Wolves and now this news today here in spain. Moxey has never come out so quickly to rubuff any other rumour about the takeover so why now?

Wolverhampton Wanderers are aiming to sign highly-rated Liverpool youngster Sheyi Ojo on loan.


1.) 02 Aug 2015 21:18:45
This rumour so far is only one that I can see happening at the moment.

Maybe we will have a Harry Redknapp type transfer deadline day. (Sarcasm)

2.) 03 Aug 2015 10:49:46
It's magic you know Dicko, Afobe, Ojo.



13 May 2015 21:43:08
Kenny Jackett's Wolverhampton Wanderers are contemplating a summer move for Shrewsbury Town prodigy Josh Ginnelly, according to sources.

Ginnelly, 18, is set for a bright future in professional football after impressing during his time at League Two side Shrewsbury Town.

Its understood that Celtic and Sheffield United are keeping tabs on the talented winger, but they will now face competition from Wolves for the signature of the 18-year-old starlet.

urgent urgent
i am watching sky sports news
paul lambert is sitting at the news desk live!
he has the title of wolves manager.


1.) 18 May 2017 11:01:20
Lambert looks relaxed because he knows if he leaves he has a job at Norwich for sure. No questions asked about managerial or coaching role at wolves for future suprise suprise.

2.) 18 May 2017 11:06:34
I asked one of the players about managerial situation no one knows for sure fosun are keeping cards close to chest. But they have definitely had meetings about it.

3.) 18 May 2017 11:10:06
No Future Wolves talk, he's gone 👍.

4.) 18 May 2017 11:36:12
Lambert just said live on sky that there has been no rift between him and fosun and that he is staying. make of that what u want. personally don't believe it's all hunky dory but he could stay possible.



17 May 2017 21:55:45
Some fans are critcising the E&S for starting all of this but it was the Telegraph that broke the story not E&S.
This has been suggested to be the work of PL and his pal Percy is it? Who works for the Telegraph. I can see Fosun pouncing on this and shutting him up with a gagging order as part of his pay off. OK fair enough but why do they need to do that?
Gag him why?
The rest makes no sense at all either. If he's gone he's gone just press conference it or press release with usual stuff about a successor being sort.
So why the silence?
Is there "Something rotten in the state of Denmark (China)?
Is Jeff Shi being hauled over he coals?
Or is he fighting his corner and attempting to convince the powers that be that what he said in his last full interview is the best way forward?
This would make some sense as to the total silence from the club.
They must know about the high level of agitation from the fans and from some of the press. Therefore is the transfer rumours a poor attempt to make things look normal?
There is only WWFC who could turn a potential change of coach into a full blown crisis.


1.) 17 May 2017 23:08:12
A crisis? Bit dramatic that! It's May our first league fixture isn't till August! What people are findin strange is the wall of silence from Fosun, before people have always got snippets of what's going on behind the scenes, just shows how unprofessional Lambert and his cronies have been leakin stuff to his mate Percy! If I was Fosun I'd of sacked him just for that never mind him bein a borin tactically inept coach who's thrown his toys out the pram because he hasn't got his own way! Really hope he's gone and the coachin staff and Thelwell!

2.) 18 May 2017 09:23:17
Why do you incessantly go on about Lambert?
What is happening is bigger than that. I believe Lambert has gone, compensated plus a gagging order.

3.) 18 May 2017 10:04:05
Hope so.

4.) 18 May 2017 10:05:26
And il keep going on about him till I'm 100% positive he's not at Wolves!



08 Apr 2017 10:47:35
Reading the latest E&S articles following an interview with Jeff Shi I think the way forward has been made as clear as it can be.
Trouble with us Wolves fans is that there has been too many empty promises from Sir Jack and then Morgan. This spans a long long time and it gets engrained in our dna
Lets hope 3rd time lucky they have spent money so far and making all the right noses about the next 2 years.


1.) 08 Apr 2017 18:47:03
Not sure where sir jack made empty promises after what he did for the club.

2.) 09 Apr 2017 09:33:03
When we went up with David Jones as manager? No real purchases made, fact. Even MoxeyMosey now admits that was a bad mistake.



17 Mar 2017 23:14:24

Bristol City 4 - 0 Huddersfield.


1.) 18 Mar 2017 15:38:22
Well done IC, more please let's not lose this match now we are 1 up! ⚽️👍😉.

2.) 18 Mar 2017 17:23:45
Great win at Fulham!

3.) 18 Mar 2017 17:33:41

we need to go and sign steven gerrard if only for this season!
experience, coach and class he still got what it takes at his age for this division.

I agree Clive shall we say a note of cautious optimism?
Nuno is a far better coach than Zenga just look how the team have picked up his style of play.
Read the article on Nuno by the Sky wolves fan it's a good insight to the man. But we were Warnocked and he has to find a plan B that can positively respond to the tactics.
Edwards? Agree with selling just did not FIT into the style of Nunos play.
Dicko? We should have held on until he was definitely surplus to requirements.

Matt medicals can be carried out locally if need be ask 'Arry!
Guys don't give up just yet
The PSV deal was pulled the director after the medical. He pulled 2 others at same time so its thought he is playing for more money.

No Darlo we need a striker
Bonantini brilliant hokdolding on to the ball and laying it off no so hit at the sharp end
Dicko trying too hard take a look at the 3 missed on Wednesday 1. Tried to bring ball down with wrong foot a completely missed it as body off balance 2. A lousy 2nd touch put him in the wrong place and 3. Well how do you miss a square pass to you and let it but your standing leg?
So we need a hard nosednosed Steve Bull lookalike please.
