Lambert said of Oniangue: "He needs to get games. He's a lovely lad, a really top bloke, but I can only pick two central midfielders and there's more here than I can count. "
Is this the biggest hint yet that two or more CMs are on their way out? A week agao I would have guessed Saville and Evans but not so sure now. But he won't sell Edwards, Price or Saiss presumably. Coady looks like he offers some consistency too, wherever he is played. Tough one.

Rumor prince is going on loan to Bastia in France.

Reports that the Luisao deal is being held up by one party, likely to be Wolves. He would be on 40k/ wk, which is OK for a player of his standard but maybe a bit much for Wolves.
1.) 23 Aug 2016 17:12:48
Lol reports sorry no body nos about in house moneys.
2.) 23 Aug 2016 23:21:30
I honestly don't believe fosun would be hesitant at paying him 40k so I doubt that's it. But does any1 think this might turn into a talisca saga n end in the same way?
3.) 24 Aug 2016 03:58:05
I hear wolves have offered him £35k but he wants £60k .
4.) 24 Aug 2016 09:33:38
Deal is now considered to be off (according to reports oversees)
5.) 24 Aug 2016 10:24:42
I'm in Portugal at the moment and the Benfica fans saying he's leaving for Wolverhampton? But they also say they thought talisca was a done deal to us to. so who knows. by the way it's bleedin hot here . but all inclusive bar helps 😎.

E&S carrying an article showing we're among the favourites for relegation. Seeing as we tend to underperform bookies' odds, this is very depressing.
1.) 18 May 2016 16:48:14
If they make us 5000-1 for promotion I'll take it. Bookies don't offer silly odds, do they? Oops, forgot about Leicester.
I'll have a bet we won't get relegated.
2.) 18 May 2016 17:36:55
You are brave, Deep Throat.
Apart from 2 years ago, we always seem to finish below where the bookies have us. But yes, let's remember Leicester and let's hope they are very very wrong.
If we do go down, we have the perfect manager to get us up again.
3.) 18 May 2016 18:16:13
Anybody know anything about Wolves Pride FC?
4.) 18 May 2016 23:22:01
Wolves won't be anywhere near the relegation zone. We have already the spine of a very decent team. 3 or 4 quality additions and we can make a substantial push towards the play-offs.
At 33/ 1, we're surely worth a fanciful fiver at the beginning to win it! Honestly though, looking at what the likes of Villa are doing, without some very savvy recruitment mid-table mediocrity again is most likely.
5.) 19 May 2016 09:51:03
Id'e have £20 on those odds, that's the price of two Poxey pies and a tea and Coffee at half time. Yep I'm up for that, bring it on. Catch the bookies out before we sell the club and bring in a manager.
25 Jan 2016 16:35:06
Looks like we've signed Hakeem Odofin, striker from Barnet for £100k.
"One for the future", but you guessed that.
1.) 25 Jan 2016 17:40:02
He's a full back.
2.) 25 Jan 2016 17:48:46
He's a fullback.
3.) 25 Jan 2016 18:58:47
Is he a full back.
4.) 25 Jan 2016 19:40:31
on sly sports! Wolves goalkeeper extends loan at telford (sound)
5.) 25 Jan 2016 20:50:37
Yes he's a full back.
6.) 25 Jan 2016 22:34:23
Have we signed a full back?
7.) 27 Jan 2016 14:25:12
Very funny. I guess I now won't forget this guy's position any time soon!
01 Sep 2015 08:45:00
Anyone know where the KMc to Bournemouth or Fulham rumour came from? It's appeared in the E&S rumours.
1.) 01 Sep 2015 09:46:37
Guessing it's coming from the fact we're in for Williams from Palace. Wouldn't be surprised if K Mac goes - no contract signed.
2.) 01 Sep 2015 13:49:46
Nothing out there yet on either. Let's hope he stays, although I get the impression he's feeling restless.
02 Aug 2016 15:08:00
This is getting exciting. Haven't seen so much international transfer activity at Wolves since 2012.
. after which we were relegated.
1.) 02 Aug 2016 15:43:22
. hope its not a trend European.
2.) 02 Aug 2016 15:44:37
Yes, we were relegated, because Moxey and Morgan had totally unrealistic expectations of getting their moneys worth from the crocked and jaded players they'd already signed on such long contracts before Stale even arrived.
The bomb squad refused to work with Stale, Morgan and Moxey blamed Stale, backed the players and sacked him, then we got relegated because it wasn't Stale that was the problem, it was our existing players, Brit and Irish, like Jonhson, OHara, Doyle etc.
The only bit of real light we've had in recent times was Sako and he was an international we have Stale to blame for.
3.) 02 Aug 2016 15:45:52
sorry European I meant.
4.) 02 Aug 2016 17:30:18
Oxleymoorwolf your spellchecker is getting the better of you. Twice!
Stale signed some good players that season. I always liked Tongo Doumbia. And the Polish loanee Pezko who has been a regular in his national team pretty well from when Deano sent him home. Boukari too, what little we saw of him, and Sako was a real find. Hopefully Zenga's players will be equally good and, more importantly, he himself will be good enough to manage them. At least this time we haven't got the egotistical established players to interfere this time. In fact the only "established" players are really Ikeme and Edwards. Batth to a lesser extent.
5.) 02 Aug 2016 17:39:35
Stop moaning Wolves fans the past is the past let's think positive and get behind the club and think of the future, our luck as got to change sometime with all the money we have wasted and let's be honest nobody in there right mind would of wanted we to carry on as we were it was awful shopping at poundland and listening to all those lies from Moxey and Morgan and Jackett with the same old stories every week making excuses instead of having the Balls to tell Morgan and Moxey what was needed to get Wolves promoted which to is credit he probably did and was refused and if that was the case which I think it was he should of left the club at that time, then I would have had more respect for him.
02 Aug 2016 09:08:29
Wondered what Wolves was in Portuguese. It's "Lobos". And "Come on you Wolves" is "Vamos la, Lobos".
In Italian it's "venire su di voi lupi" according to google. Doesn't have the same punch to it.
Clearly no news this morning.
28 Jul 2016 11:00:43
That's Moxey finally away to join Delia. So we can't blame him for anything at Wolves any more now.
1.) 28 Jul 2016 13:26:39
Delia persuaded Moxey to come to Norwich promising Moxey her secret recipe in pie making, so Moxey couldn't refuse.
2.) 28 Jul 2016 15:08:39
He got a signed copy of "One is Fun" on his arrival.
06 Jun 2016 09:20:19
I've been thinking (is that allowed? ) With Sako and Afobe going to the Premier and probably Hause and Iofa following them, it's been a long time since we've had so much talent that clubs have come to us. We don't know, but it's not inconceivable McDonald, Price or maybe Graham will go to bigger clubs. And Edwards is playing in France, which will not do him any harm even at his age.
In the 10 years or so before this season who did we lose to bigger clubs? (Not counting those who later got promoted) Jarvis/ Fletcher/ Kightly when we got relegated. Miller a few years earlier. Before that, who, Lescott?
Soooooo. with all this apparent talent, how come we're not punching at our weight? This leaves me thinking that there isn't a lot wrong with most of our players, nor our scouts or our academy. The inescapable conclusion is that our coaching and management is falling short.
Kenny might be a tactician - and last season not a particularly successful one - but is our coaching really so bad?
1.) 06 Jun 2016 09:40:57
Euroman, good point. These days we're punching below our weight given the quality of some of our players over the past five years.
2.) 06 Jun 2016 10:20:41
It's a very good point Euroman. I've said that of Kenny and his shortcomings. The squad we had last season was easily top 6 standard. So to be languishing below Leeds, Preston and Birmingham was simply not good enough.
Our players - Attracting Premier League admirers
Our scouts - Have performed reasonably well, especially at an under-21 level
Our academy - The £6 million redevelopment; the only reasonable investment made in infrastructure by 'development expert' Morgan!
That just goes to show that the foundations are in place; now we just need someone who can make proper use of them. For me, now that so many managers have been taken in the past few weeks, I'd take Rob Edwards. Would certainly uphold the principle of promoting within. Could also bring in his own coaching staff who also care about the club. Jody Craddock for instance?
3.) 06 Jun 2016 11:27:15
Euroman. Haveing looked at the lasy seasons results and reports for 15/ 16 the under 21's managed 2 wins all season and the U18's 1 win, if our coaching process is so good please explain the results. It is clear that it cannot be that good imo, 2 games in the under 21's poor season included conceding 7 goals.
4.) 06 Jun 2016 13:04:58
Spanish - the way it works with these youngsters is that only a handful will ever make it. Some make it so far (like Zeli and McAlinden) but players like Price and Iorfa are much rarer. However the point is that there are decent players coming through, unlike 5-10 years ago when it was really just goalkeepers. Would be good if they had results for sure, but that's a secondary objective.
Interesting point Wolfie Wilde - yes, the academy looks like a good £££ generator as if that's more important than results on the field.
5.) 06 Jun 2016 13:13:44
Wolfie You are really getting carried away you really are. NONE of our teams at any age group did well last season so the coaching staff - inc KJ - have to be held to account as to their performances
Edwards I do not think is what we need he will end up being another Moxey yes man
We need someone with experience who can stand up for himself so we actually need a new owner and Moxey gone its the only sensible solution.
6.) 06 Jun 2016 15:57:35
How come we got links with USA clubs via gis so how come never have exchange programs they can't all be so bad can't train with u21/ 18s could be missing out on some unseen talent if not going exchange what point off being in USA?
24 Feb 2016 08:56:33
I haven't posted for a while. I've only come back to moan anyway. I mean, what kind of rubbish is this? I get that end-of-McCarthy feeling all over again, and we know that was followed by two successive relegations.
We're not as safe from relegation as we might think. As things stand, we're not getting the points and we'll be drawn into a relegation battle by the end of March.
Injuries? Sure, but we have a team of players that were signed by Jackett or promoted by him from the U21s. So they should be good enough. What must Nouha be thinking as he watches this carp from the stand, let alone Williamson who must be wondering why he signed at all.
Removing Jackett is a risk but it's what teams usually do in this position. Can another manager get more out of this team? Probably not, although it's hard to see how it can be worse so my guess is that he'll be gone sooner rather than later. As we saw at ManU, Moyes couldn't make Fergie's team play any better, and Van Gaal even after spending a fortune hasn't got a lot more out of them. And that's where we are from a new manager's standpoint. We have only a handful of players who could cut it in the Premier (Dicko, McDonald, perhaps Iorfa err. OK not even a handful) so if we're serious about eventual promotion, we need to change the team. Van la Parra is a good example of a quality player who isn't performing at Wolves. No point keeping players like that, although maybe another manager can get more out of him. Le Fondre is another. If Zyro were fit again, we'd see what he is made of, but I fear frustration again.
So I think survival is important in the short term, making sure we don't drop lower. If that means playing boring football and picking up the odd point or goal on the counter attack then so be it. We aren't going to overwhelm or frighten any team so it's damage limitation time.
Over and out.
1.) 24 Feb 2016 17:09:57
We aren't getting promoted and don't think we are going down either, kenny is on a rolling 12month contract so no point sacking him and paying out when he can go at the end of the season.
if we got in a new manager before the end of the season he couldn't make a difference apart from a few wins and maybe moving up avplace or two.
2.) 24 Feb 2016 18:38:06
Wish I had your confidence about avoiding relegation. We look OK but how many more places do we need to slip before we hear the sound of squeaky bums on boardroom seats?
11 Jan 2017 10:06:59
Do we really want Plymouth away?
Let's face it, we're not going to win the FA Cup. So let's hope for a game at Anfield whether it's an Ojo- or Coutinho-flavoured team they put out. That's what we're aiming for next season, right?
04 Jan 2017 16:18:14
They don't actually say much, though, Wednesfield.
14 Dec 2016 18:02:31
We will loan out 5 or more players like when Deano took over but this time we need to get loan replacements hard to see anyone buying any of our players we don't need.
Yes I know we already have 5 on loan but we will sign only one or two players oand send a couple back to their clubs because with all these injuries we have some good players coming back.
14 Dec 2016 17:57:48
Doc has scored twice and makes good runs up the left so why not play him LM or play 5 at the back with him and Iorfa doing what they do best?
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.
12 Jan 2017 15:16:25
They loved him a Wednesday when he went on loan.
12 Jan 2017 15:15:09
Sad to see him die so young. Some top managers are still working at that age. Yes, he might not have got us promoted but he found some memorable players for us.
04 Jan 2017 16:16:56
The other explanation, Timtoo33, is that we're looking at bigger signings than Sako. Think Cavaleiro.
04 Jan 2017 16:14:50
That was a stupid period, period. Half decent players out of the door, Deano in charge, one new signing (Lee Evans as I recall, one for the future) some panic loans at the end of the season and . plop.
04 Jan 2017 11:35:08
I think Mason and Bod need to start the next match. OK they didn't score but they both came close. Unless we can clearly do better, this is our best choice. Dicko will be unhappy he hasn't scored since coming back, but then again neither has any other striker.
I am sure Saville and Wallace will be off, and many of the loans going back. Evans is an enigma. Hard to see how he fits in, but maybe need to see him playing again to know for sure. We will take permanent deals for EEL and Henry too if they emerge.
We also have to be open to unexpected bids for our better players. If a Premier team comes in for Price, Cav or even Bright or Ronan then we would obviously listen.
