OK, so we read Fosun are looking at German clubs. Presumably to give our young players some experience in the Bundesliga!
Seriously, though, imagine the next Thomas Muller, Mario Gomez, Mesut Ozil or Bastian Schweinsteiger starting his first team career here. A German striker playing off Costa and Cav perhaps?
1.) 23 Mar 2017 14:52:18
If you read the report carefully, you'll see that they tried to buy the club BEFORE they purchased Wolves.
2.) 23 Mar 2017 14:54:42
They've changed the dates. It said 2015 this morning.
3.) 23 Mar 2017 15:21:35
There are so many incredible German league players who we could sign. It could be amazing.
4.) 23 Mar 2017 16:04:40
Lewis Holtby would be a good signing for us.
5.) 23 Mar 2017 16:10:01
Yes as would be pappledolplelous who is on loan this season.
6.) 23 Mar 2017 17:11:19
Sounds like a dinosaur, Wolves011. We've had our share of those.
I'll look him up.
7.) 24 Mar 2017 07:46:50
He's Greek. So not the best a spelling his name.
8.) 24 Mar 2017 22:14:42
imagine how big his shirt is going to be to get his name on the back UTW.
07 Mar 2017 12:45:00
Looks like Cav is back. Let's hope he starts and adds some magic. Saiss too.
1.) 07 Mar 2017 15:03:10
Lambert knows he can't lose tonight or he's gone. Tick Tock Tick Tock Tick Tock.
2.) 07 Mar 2017 17:26:20
A draw will prolong the agony.
3.) 07 Mar 2017 18:00:08
The chinese will think long and hard about sacking paul lambert as the reasoning behind there choice had nothing todo with football all to do with chinese superstition paul lambert was born the year of the roster which all happens to be the season of 2017 year all good thing happen in that year supposedly. Paul lambert to stay I think unfortunately league 1anager at best sorry but honest opinion dean saunders was better hahaha we need a sutible manager which prem and champ experience to then push on I mean benitiz was real madrid manager few years ago now look at him. Paul ince as assistant ranieri as manager give him 5 years ince takes over.
4.) 07 Mar 2017 18:11:19
If we lose tonight we go down, if we win then we'll win the next few and finish mid table.
5.) 07 Mar 2017 19:25:18
Wow that team selection?
He has took ALL pace out the team.
I would love to know what Saville and Edwards do in training to make Lambert think they are unstoppable.
I'm praying I'm wrong. If we lose after this selection then Lambert will have tied his own noose.
6.) 07 Mar 2017 19:42:51
2018 is the year of the Tiger, so presumably Fosun will be looking at anybody who was born in 1974? Answers please.
7.) 07 Mar 2017 19:46:54
Let Lambert shoot himself. Forget the rooster, we need a tiger.
8.) 07 Mar 2017 20:42:39
Rooster is like cock as in cock up what manager picks Saville and Weimann ahead of Costa?
9.) 08 Mar 2017 03:27:32
2018 is the year of the dog. If Fosun are consulting the oracle and hiring managers based on when they were born we may have Chris Hughton (1958) or Chris Coleman (1970) next year.
10.) 08 Mar 2017 07:13:49
. hopefully not Alan Irvine (1958) or David O'Leary (1958)
11.) 08 Mar 2017 13:45:19
The smart ones on here would have already worked out Gary Rowett was actually born in 1974 (year of the Tiger) . I'm not taking the piss, l genuinely think Wolvesfmscout has something and, luckily for us, Rowett's spiritual symbol and number chart meet all of Fosun's harsh requirements for 2018. If Lambert steps down, it shouldn't hit us too hard, lol. I have to admit, though, that it does make me worry about future applicants doing it that way.
12.) 08 Mar 2017 14:09:29
Sorry, yes you are right, next year is the dog year. I guess Gary will have to wait until 2022 or 2034 for the Wolves job? Very harsh.
13.) 09 Mar 2017 09:50:43
Nah! We got the 'Year of the Pig' not thought to be very smart! Albeit a couple of years earlier than expected!
12 Jan 2017 15:20:01
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.
1.) 13 Jan 2017 10:40:12
Rumor prince is going on loan to Bastia in France.
23 Aug 2016 15:22:20
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 😎.
18 May 2016 14:47:10
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.
31 Jan 2017 10:15:52
Right so there must be a chant for Chelsea - like: Our Costa is better than your Costa, or something like that.
1.) 31 Jan 2017 11:24:55
Costa, there's only one Costa.
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?
23 Mar 2017 17:11:19
Sounds like a dinosaur, Wolves011. We've had our share of those.
I'll look him up.
22 Mar 2017 14:26:17
I'm never sure about Edwards. A few seasons ago he was almost out of the club, not even making Deano's lineup. Then he had some good seasons. And yes, he's done a lot this season too. But would a more commanding, creative midfielder be better? Someone who could distribute balls to the front 4 (as we now appear to have) rather than to grab a goal from time to time? That's what he was mostly doing last match I suppose, but if we still had Oniangue at the Mol I suspect he would work the ball better.
On the other hand, he's as Wolves as we've got now. He's fit, rarely being injured or booked or even substituted. Perfect for this division. But if we get promoted.
15 Mar 2017 16:42:54
Evans looks like he'll keep Price out of the team for a couple of matches. Before we get carried away, Saville and Evans did well in the cup but failed in the next league match. When they work they work well, when they don't it's shocking.
Saiss for Saville perhaps, when his form drops. I wish Oniangue was still around. There's also Coady I suppose.
Please that Ben Marshall is working out.
15 Mar 2017 16:38:45
A month ago I might have concurred. Who knew Lee Evans was our secret weapon? I still want Bod up front. A game of the pace at the end there would suit him.
On a more positive note I see odds of us being dumped into L1 have dropped from 7/ 1 before the Ipswich game to as much as 20/ 1 today.
13 Mar 2017 10:34:22
Correct. Every time we sack a manager we're left thinking: the last one could have done better. Have we ever done better since Mick McCarthy in fact? Or, more recently, Kenny Jackett?
No, keep Lambert for now. We're not Norwich and we're not Derby, both safe enough to fire their managers and going nowhere. Yes, we might still go down but history shows we're even more likely to go down if we fire him now. Besides if we win at Brentford he'll be a hero again. We have short memories.
23 Mar 2017 10:11:04
@Ajwolf very funny!
22 Mar 2017 14:33:25
(a) Signed Suarez
(b) Bought West Brom and with it a place in the Premier
(c) Permission to convert the Molineux to a covered 50,000 all-seater stadium.
(d) Said the current team has potential to get promoted next season under Paul Lambert.
20 Mar 2017 10:16:25
Looking at the table, no 72 not enough for playoffs. Unless Sheffield Weds fail to get 10 points.
But that's not where we're at. We're 16th, above Brum and Ipswich on goals and 5 points behind QPR and Brentford, 6 behind Barnsley, Villa and Cardiff. That's where we need to aim. If we finish 11-15th it's a season well salvaged. If we drop below 18th any time soon then we'll start dancing with relegation again.
A neutral observer would expect Wigan to be down with Rotherham, and one of Forest, Burton, Blackburn and Bristol City joining them. Probably Burton. But a couple of wins can change it all, as we know.
20 Mar 2017 10:07:20
Chelsea has something like 40 players out on loan so it would be no surprise.
15 Mar 2017 16:49:14
Is it even mathematically possible?
