If your right. I think it will be the best for wolves as a football club. just hope nuno can keep helder costa and cav. my wish list for players in would be joe hart. tammy abraham . john terry to start with. what u think.

29 May 2017 21:14:01
I think you're living in dream land greylegwolf!
I'll have what he's having.

29 May 2017 22:14:23
No harm in dreaming. turu. try it. I think this guy could lead us to the promised land.

30 May 2017 00:05:43
John Terry?

30 May 2017 08:14:00
"Hi Joe, we would love you down at Molineux. We can only afford a fifth of your pay but at least you will get to go to Millwall for a day out".

29 May 2017 14:29:12
On other site it's been claimed ALL SENIOR SQUAD STAFF HAVE BEEN SACKED! And so it begins! Bring on the revolution! VIVA FOSUN! 👍.

29 May 2017 14:33:10
Which site is that PT?

29 May 2017 14:35:56
Can you send a link please Paul? Can't find any info at all on this.

29 May 2017 14:39:34
Mol Mix.

29 May 2017 14:41:37
🙏🙏🙏 please be true.

GodBless you all 🙏🙏🙏.

29 May 2017 14:44:01
Nuno nuffing or Nuno somefing? 😂😂😂😂👍⚽️.

29 May 2017 15:00:29
Mol Mix, saying Tony Daley, Rob Edwards., Pat Mountain all gone.

29 May 2017 15:02:10
That is the question? 😂😂😂👍😉⚽️.

29 May 2017 16:18:52
A bit sceptical about this PT mate, on a bank holiday?
It's possible I guess but I think it's a fairy tale spun up.

29 May 2017 16:35:22
I can't find this can someone please show me? As I'd be very surprised if rob Edwards went tbh.

29 May 2017 16:37:38
At last a group that are tackling the real problem at Molineux. Should be a good week now before I jet off to Vegas.
Thank you Fosun.

29 May 2017 16:49:55
The guy on the Mix is supposed to be an ITK poster and others have backed up his post? We will def know true or false in next 24 hours?

29 May 2017 17:02:26
I'd have thought they would keep Rob Edwards and remove Thelwell.!? Anyone any views on that? 👍😉⚽️.

29 May 2017 17:04:40
If Nuno is on his way I'm glad he is bringing his own coaching staff. Rob Edwards is one of the good guys though. TD isn't bad either. ⚽️👍😉.

29 May 2017 17:17:36
I dno Paul tbh I just don't see someone who Fosun rate extremely highly in rob Edwards going tbh I could see him maybe going back to being manager of the u18 or dropping down help Scott out in u21 but I just don't see him leaving the club permanently I expect him to still be at the club mostly as a first team coach.

29 May 2017 17:25:39
revolution time
the realist mystic meg of this forum
paul tamworth the mean machine
let do this wolves.

29 May 2017 17:33:19
Rumour new assistant will be sayin goodbye to the bbc? Maybe Phil Neville?

29 May 2017 17:40:19
This was rumoured on here I think sometime last week? The main name missing from the list is Therwell imo. if true Nuno clearly wants things done his way from scratch. fare play to that.

29 May 2017 17:56:54
Rob Edwards part of the cosy club, good riddance to all of them if true, we need a fresh start, up the revolution :)

29 May 2017 18:03:40
More than ever the club need to make a statement. Huddersfield promoted. VLP in the premier league. You could not make it up.

29 May 2017 18:07:52

29 May 2017 18:09:26
Agree clear the lot out! To much mediocracy at the club! And as said before, they were all to cosy! Good Riddance! VIVA THE REVOLUTION! 👍👍👍.

29 May 2017 18:20:23
As everybody says let's clear the lot out let santo start from scratch bring in his own team and own players.

29 May 2017 18:42:34
At the moment our closest neighbours r favourites to sign Costa let's sting em for 25mill.

29 May 2017 18:52:44
Paul thanks for Posting.
Really hope all is true, but like others, want to see Thelwell part of the group being exited.

29 May 2017 19:09:28
Are you saying Costa is going to Walsall?

29 May 2017 21:36:11
on wolves news now.

29 May 2017 23:47:37
Phil Neville will come.

28 May 2017 21:46:27
Hi guys . I have been told tonight we have a 2 million bid for Adam Flint from Bristol City. don't know if source is reliable. Whisper maybe .

Agree0 Disagree0

28 May 2017 22:46:43
I wouldn't of thought so he is English.

28 May 2017 23:03:23
He's worth between 5 - 7 million so I wouldn't believe that.

28 May 2017 23:07:18
That sounds to me like a Lambert target.

28 May 2017 23:28:43
From what I've heard, if he is a Lambert target he could be off to Sunderland.

29 May 2017 08:33:31
Come on Nuno. Hurry up and sort out this mess! 👍😉⚽️.

29 May 2017 08:37:48
No way are we making bids for the likes of Adam Flint. Nothing will happen until Santo is in place as head coach.

Any guesses than Santo is not coming because he will want to spend too much, are nonsense plain and simple, as they ignore the reality. Nobody can spend tens of millions at this stage for Wolves, it would break the financial rules. Expenditure is not the issue we are facing.

Sant will be appointed.

29 May 2017 08:51:51
@Wolves are keen to sign portuguese CB Fábio Cardoso, from V. Setúbal. They face competition from @RangersFC.

29 May 2017 10:56:35
Im sure NES will have a big say in that one kidda.

29 May 2017 11:51:39
The fair play rules give us a limit of over spend, compared to our revenue, over 3 years of about £40 million. So without bringing in money from sales in the next 2 seasons, we won't be spending mega money as some people think we can. The fact that we have billionaire owners in the championship doesn't make that much difference.

Especially when we sign a bunch of players who can't cut it in this league. Lambert could see that and was looking to bring the right type of players in. look at Newcastle and Brighton's signing last year, experienced, quality, championship players. All we can hope is that the new manager realises this and gets his say on who comes in.

29 May 2017 11:58:43
Unless we get a new sponsor.
Stadium naming rights.
And. we could spend now as long as the books are balanced 2018/ 19 season.

29 May 2017 14:52:38
According to an article today on Sky Sports, promotion to the PL sees an uplift in revenue of at least £170m, rising to. £290m if you stay up after the first season.

That's the big gamble. Do Fosun and Wolves go for it - Spend another £30m-£40m to get promoted. The increased revenue will ensure we don't break FFP rules. Flip side is if we don't get promoted in the next two season we will need to balance the books by selling our best players. That's if again we want to stay within the rules.

Other teams like Bournemouth have carried on regardless and taken the fine for FFP. Do Fosun just say sod the rules and go for it anyway. Bournemouth got fined £7.6m for breaking the rules. I'd pay that if Wolves we're esatablished in the Premier League!

28 May 2017 11:49:47
A friend who works at wolves has heard Fosun will not be appointing Santo, although interview went really well he insisted on money needing to be spent to get the team where it needs to be and Fosun are unwilling to spend the money he requests, instead they will appoint Couceiro!

Agree0 Disagree0

28 May 2017 12:33:37
If that's the case surely the interview didn't go well?

28 May 2017 12:53:55
We just need a proven quality tried and tested manager who's allowed to pick the players and team he wants. 😂😂.

28 May 2017 13:01:28
I would imagine that any interviews / discussions at this moment would be highly confidential and details only known to those in the room.

28 May 2017 13:11:07
Hembico what you state is true, but all will talk again on Tuesday, its not dead in the water just yet!

28 May 2017 13:18:58
Well that supports what a sensible manager would want wouldn't he 😂😂😂👍👍.

28 May 2017 13:20:10
We not got the money but break are transfer record with rav and Costa lololol love how many on here are the same person but just change there name. Keep it real.

28 May 2017 15:02:50
All this speculation about the manager will he or won't he it was the same last year when the takeover was going through I still think it will b santo.

28 May 2017 15:09:29
If santo wants money to spend on the team fosun should let him have it it's going to cost to get the team promoted.

28 May 2017 15:35:14
Why appoint a "high profile" coach and then deny him input to player recruitment.

28 May 2017 16:58:59
Ah let Mendes decide lupinehowler. In fact why not make him coach as well. He seems to know what he wants and what he's doing! 😂😂😂😂 none of this looks good at the mo does it? 👎.

28 May 2017 17:13:21
Just to clear things up, yes we have money however Fosun are not willing to put in the investment they did last year ( don't know why not) . They liked the idea of Nuno and everything he had to say apart from his views on the current squad and what needs to be spent! ( he didn't just want Mendes cast offs he wanted quality.

28 May 2017 17:38:07
Hembico, if this is true then it is a sign that Fosun have no ambition. Quite why they would buy a football club and then not want to invest in quality players is beyond me. The world does not just revolve around Jorge Mendes. If this is true then we are going nowhere again and again the fans will have been let down.

As it stands, they have wasted money on substandard players and severance fees for 2 managers (assuming that Lambert is for the chop) . Not the way to run a club or make money which apparently is their main goal.

I am becoming increasingly worried about our great club and the silence from the club in the face of all of these rumours is deafening.

28 May 2017 17:46:17
Hembico You have no idea of who will be wolves manager. Portuguese press advise the president of Vitoria setabul has advised that they have NOT had an approach from Wolves for Couceiro and would not entertain one. it also advised wolves may have sounded out Couceiro but he had no interest.

28 May 2017 18:17:47
Veni Espírito Santo! 🙏.

28 May 2017 18:44:07
Oh if that's true then I give up.

28 May 2017 18:50:14
Statto you say the following
Quite why they would buy a football club and then not want to invest in quality players is beyond me

Well have you heard of a man named Steve Morgan.

Its beyond me too.

28 May 2017 20:08:12
Guys "Hembico" has only ever made 5 posts and they have all been today.
My view on what he has said is simply ignore it unless he can supply substantive proof and let's face it he won't or can't blah blah blah.

{Ed007's Note - Hembico's posting history goes back to at least the 15th June 2016.}

28 May 2017 20:31:53
oooh apologies Hembico
However, there is this quote “President Fernando Oliveira could never have been responsible for stopping the departure of coach José Couceiro for Wolverhampton, simply because the club has never been approached in that regard by the English side. ”.

28 May 2017 20:41:19
Hembico what a load of rubbish.

28 May 2017 21:11:28
OGW, I wouldn't ever defend Morgan as he completely mismanaged the club but his one saving grace was the investment into the academy. I think that when Fosun took over, with their status in the business world, we all expected decent investment. If what Hembico says is correct, then it is ridiculously disappointing and puzzling as the money is to be made in the Premiership, so if they are serious about the club they need to properly invest to get there.

Derbywolf, I said "if this is true" in respect of Hembico's post. Although whether it is true or not, I do think that Fosun's handling of the situation has been poor. If Lambert is their man, publicly back him, if he's not, sack him. There is no need to keep everyone in limbo whilst they search for a replacement if the latter is their view.

28 May 2017 22:07:10
Statto I agree with you mate if all this turns out to be reality I can see Fosun walking away this is not good for their image.

28 May 2017 22:15:26
Hembico, I don't believe that for a second. I may not like the fact Fosum are getting rid of Lambert but they have already proven they are willing to spend the money necessary. I just really hope we can get a proper Director of Football to lead the recruitment of the players.

It wouldn't surprise me if when the new manager comes in we spend £30m. Sadly I think we will be using mendes to get the players.

28 May 2017 22:19:38
If the Nuno santo deal falls through because of money over transfers then fosun have no ambition whatsoever lambert hanging on for a years pay off if that's the case then why did they buy the club all this makes no sense at all getting to the prem they will get bucket loads.

28 May 2017 23:04:45
Only at Wolves could you get billionaire owners and it ends up as a farce. Oh, the trials and tribulations of being a Wolves fan!

28 May 2017 23:11:33
Not saying it's true or not guys! Just passing on what I've been told, I for one hope it's a load of tosh! The bloke does work for wolves though and is bound to hear things, anyway just saying 🙄.

29 May 2017 09:57:51
Thinking rationally for once what about the FFP restrictions?
They can spend some but not go mad so perhaps Nuno whatever his name is is being guided my Mendes to push negotiations too far and then meet somewhere in the middle. You know the usual guff.

29 May 2017 10:01:47
I don't think hembico is a wolves fan he probably supports that lot up the road he's winding us all up.

27 May 2017 15:22:52
Has Santo derfo took the job or even been interviewed or is it just another fairy tale spun?

Agree0 Disagree0

27 May 2017 18:18:53
Interviewed today will be offered the job on Monday
Appointed tuesday.

27 May 2017 18:48:09
Sound Realist,

27 May 2017 19:03:55
Gonçalo Lopes has tweeted the interview went well 👍.

27 May 2017 19:21:42
press conference Thursday Molineux?
how long is contract?

27 May 2017 19:40:41
Prob give him 6 games Gee? If he doesn't get at least 16 points we will get rid 👍😂😂🍺.

27 May 2017 19:45:16
I think Thursday as well almost done and dusted.

27 May 2017 19:51:12
Portuguese paper record says Nuno santo is up for it he almost took over last summer.

27 May 2017 22:44:22
Cheers The realist, looks promising then.

27 May 2017 23:23:40
It seems that Couceiro is still in the mix.

28 May 2017 05:34:49
Just hope he wins a couple of preseason matchs or fosun will get lambert back in to steady ship agen hahaha😂😂.

28 May 2017 20:44:09
Odds on Nuno Santo taking over are now so short that it must be nigh on a done deal. One is now offering odds of just 1/ 50 which says it all really.

28 May 2017 22:21:18
Brummiewolf, I saw that on twitter. It's crazy how it's 1/ 50 when they don't even have a market open for 'next Wolves manager'. I would guess they have done a bit of google searching instead of being 'in the know'. Hopefully we find out next week and get this situation sorted.

27 May 2017 13:45:34
Ian Cathro and Austin MacPhee are likely to join Nuno in big coaching shake up!

Agree0 Disagree0

27 May 2017 14:42:07
The same Ian Cathro who is manager of hearts?

27 May 2017 15:09:08
666 not again lol.

27 May 2017 15:11:20
Who let 666 out of his padded cell?

27 May 2017 18:46:58
Yes Cathro manages Hearts used to work with Nuno but why would he want to be assistant when he could be managing?

27 May 2017 18:59:39
Because managing in the Pub League is not a proper job.

28 May 2017 02:53:22
I really hope we pull this off, just want us to avoid another Lopetegui situation - ie Fosun knowing who they want, then at the last minute there's a hitch on the deal. This bloke's pedigree looks excellent. Would be typical Wolves though if we didn't manage to get it over the line though. Hopefully it's a done deal soon.

28 May 2017 07:07:33
More like Nanny McPhee 666. Come on in Phil Neville! All we can do is just hope he lasts longer than 6 months and does bring in some quality before he leaves. Roll on the next instalment of our ongoing Drama at the Mol! Let's all hope we can get up the league and in the Prem. ⚽️👍😉.

27 May 2017 11:46:03
Hope I'm wrong but I've got a bad feeling. A manager who is a client of mendes, who played as a keeper who has recently been sacked. I'm getting deja vu.
Also I've heard Costa is definitely being sold before the start of the season, mendes is looking for around £20. I wonder how many millions he will make out of that. Pretty sad state of affairs when we have "super agent", almost sounds impressive, pulling the strings at our club. Sir jack would be turning in his grave.

Agree0 Disagree0

27 May 2017 12:11:37
Agreed billy oceans 11! It could easily turn into a Nightmare!

27 May 2017 12:20:29
£20 for Costa? I'll go halves with someone and sell him on for a profit.

27 May 2017 12:28:20
Sir Jack IS turning in his grave over it.

27 May 2017 12:34:58
four managers in less than 12 months cannot be good, we need stability because there is never anything for a new manager to build on therefore there will calls for his head by xmas .

27 May 2017 12:39:26
With some people I don't think the glass is just half full, it's bleedin' leaking.

Sir Jack? If Fosun dug up Stan Cullis himself and made him manager some of you would be complaining about long ball football.

I must remind Fosun, even if we could sign the best head coach in the world, if he was an ex-keeper, he wouldn't be wanted at Wolves. Zenga Mark 2 you see. Got that Fosun?

27 May 2017 12:52:32
Culled wouldn't go near today's team. He finds them 'self absorbed' and over paid 'namby pambies'.

27 May 2017 13:39:57
I don't think Fosun are stupid they know they can make more money in prem. Fosun are invested in Mendes company so surely he isn't going to want to upset them and make us fail?

27 May 2017 13:45:07
Lopetgui who we all thought was coming also a goalkeeper, Lambert is going because he failed to inspire the fans and the owners simple.

27 May 2017 17:34:03
I don't have a problem as such withPL leaving! I like all the the fans want success for us and the club. I do tend to look at what's before me, I see what seems to be a good manager who has allowed a football agent to get involved with things he shouldn't be involved in where selecting players are concerned! I keep saying I hope I'm wrong and we see a few high quality players coming in not lots of very average players like the last 10 months. I don't mind Mendes as long as he understands who manages and coaches the team decides with his staff who he wants at the club NOT Mendes! ⚽️👍😉.

27 May 2017 19:40:36
All mendes understands is making money for himself, otherwise he wouldn't be an agent. Trust me Costa is gone to line his pockets.

27 May 2017 23:12:08
Mendes has no, nothing, zero! Interest in our club or any other club. His only interest is making money. Fosun know as much about football as most of us know about baseball. It is a case of the emperor's new clothes. Fosun are convinced that mendes, the "super agent" what ever that means, is an expert in football and turn to him over someone like Lambert. Lambert might not have been for everyone, fair enough, but at this at level he's been there and done it.

26 May 2017 16:31:52
My friend in Valencia has just messaged me that the local papers have announced Nuno as the Wolves manager.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 May 2017 16:57:29

26 May 2017 17:05:33
Hope this is true. Quite like the look of him.

26 May 2017 17:07:38
I'm at work at the mo but will send the link later, will have to get Google to translate it 👍.

26 May 2017 17:08:33
I live in Spain and cannot find anything does your friend have a link or name of the paper?

26 May 2017 17:36:45
Nuno would walk into a mid table premier​ league job.

Great coup if true and would vindicate fosun model as well as killing the Lambert debate.

26 May 2017 18:34:50
It's superdeporte. es. However I think my Spanish friend has got a bit too excited as it translates to Nuno close to commiting to Wolves. Stand by your beds chaps 🙄.

26 May 2017 18:50:00
Wish I could get worked up about this! His connection with Mendes was his undoing in his second season at Valencia if you read the articles about it. Over expensive Mendes players that didn't perform and otomendi off to Man City. Doesn't boss well for the future if this happens all over again. Football agents should NOT be allowed to determine transfers. In this case his involvement is a clear conflict of interest. Hmmm! 👎😂.

26 May 2017 18:57:24
WOLVESCOAST get used to the modern way of runnin a footy team, this guys credentials are far better than our level so definitely a step up. If he fails move him on and start again! Why you worrying about it? It's not your money! Enjoy the ride! And please don't tell me keepin Lambert would be better? 😂😂😂.

26 May 2017 18:57:32
East Park yes a rehash of what is in many papers here. Basically discussions on going but the reporter Carlos Boshe is a well respected sports reporter here in Spain.

26 May 2017 19:00:20
Steady on chaps, don't believe everything you read in the newspapers, even local Spanish ones. The psychologists have a term for it, it's called "confirmation bias". Meaning, if you really want something to happen and believe it will, you will ignore all evidence to the contrary, and attach added biased importance to any evidence that backs you up.

26 May 2017 21:11:04
Marco Silva signed for Watford.

26 May 2017 21:43:23
Until its done . that's all i'm saying.

26 May 2017 22:48:21
PT please inform us of other clubs that have football agents determining who their clubs hire or fire the players!? I can't think of any managers that would put up with that crap, can you? Unless you mean our club! ⚽️👍😉.

27 May 2017 05:17:12
Who knows what goes on behind closed doors at other clubs? Football agents have been screwing owners over for years! We have got a conglomerate worth over 40billion owning us, remember it's Fosun who own part of Mendes agency not the other way round, so when they pay the agent their basically payin money into their own pot. U want to start thanking Mendes instead of slaggin him so much as he helped get the Fosun deal over the line! They've only been here 12 months give them a break and enjoy the ride 👍. With these owners it won't be borin, if the manager/ coach fails their gone! They certainly won't let the club stagnate like the previous owner! Roll on August! 👍.

27 May 2017 06:49:29
One problem with what you are saying here PT. The money is spent by the Club not Fosun and the debt accrued lies with the Club. If Fosun decide to walk away WW could go bust. Let's hope their commitment is total.

27 May 2017 08:06:08
If Chelsea, man city etc owners walk away their screwed! But with owners like theirs and ours there is no debt! If sky and bt walk away loads of teams are screwed! Enjoy these billionaire owners and tv deals while they are here. 👍 Hey we could be dead tomorrow.

{Ed001's Note - Chelsea and Man City's owners (ownership groups in the case of Citeh) have been pumping money in simply to put the clubs into a position where they would be self-sufficient in the event of them leaving. Now TV revenue is a different matter, that would be a problem if that went down, but live streaming rights are likely to overtake that income stream soon enough anyway.}

27 May 2017 08:42:28
Thanks for that ed I think u get my jist. Let's hope Fosun do the same for us as Citeh are doin. 👍 We're certainly in a better position to achieve that than under Morgan's guidance.

{Ed001's Note - I know mate, just being pedantic. I can't help it at times.}

27 May 2017 09:29:59
Good job your only pedantic at times Ed or with majority of the posts on here you'd never be off the board 😂.

{Ed001's Note - that's a good point. I do often have to grit my teeth and ignore what is said!}

27 May 2017 09:52:56
wollabby you're wobbling. Get real man. Fosun have tens of millions invested in Wolves. There's far more available when they can invest without breaking financial rules in football. There's no way that Fosun would walk away from a massive investment. Anyway, the Chinese are not like that in business. The loss of face would be dishonourable for them. Paul Lambert was my choice for Wolves. He had five months and a transfer window. But, he couldn't finish any higher than Kenny Jackett at his worst. It right that we move on as Fosun have big plans for Wolves.

27 May 2017 10:48:19
Let's not forget the whole point of Steve Morgan selling the club for £10 was on the basis they had to invest £30m within 2 years so by rights they cannot claim that 30m back.

27 May 2017 10:49:49

Wolvescoast, you say it went wrong in his second season at Valencia when mendes started tonget involved.

In his first season at Valencia when they finished 4th mendes provided him with 7 players and on 3 in his second season.

At Porto mendes has provided him with 6 players this season. They have work together at every club he has been at and nuno gets he beat out the players he has been provided.

He could get a mid table prem team, but the mendes factor for him is what making him drop to the championship and see the bigger picture where the club wants to go under Fosun.


27 May 2017 11:47:16
I think fosun will make an announcement on Thursday lambert out Nuno santo in that's a great result he and mendes will bring in quality players it doesn't matter if there used to the championship or not if there top players they should b able to play anywhere.

27 May 2017 13:05:24
Aim high score high. Wolves can build a team to not only win promotion but be good enough to stay in the Premier League. That's the no 1 aim this summer. Do you trust Lambert to do it or Mendes/ Santo?

Lambert buys Hugill, Weimann, Hanley

Mendes buys Neves, Bruma etc.

26 May 2017 12:36:13
New man wants Bas Dost would cost 16 mil + don't think fosun will do it monster of a player mind.

Agree0 Disagree1

26 May 2017 13:00:11
He won't come to championship he more likely to go mid table prem club.

26 May 2017 13:00:40
Funny post 666.start of the weekend here we go.

26 May 2017 14:02:38
OK 666 where did you get that from?

26 May 2017 14:25:57
Where did you see that hwrk666? I agree he certainly knows where the net is Das Bost that is. That would make a change for us at the front. Someone who can actually put the ball in the net! Can't see this happening though. He's more likely to be off to the prem. ⚽️👍😉.

26 May 2017 14:27:05
Sorry that was Bas Dost. Predictive text again! 😉.

26 May 2017 07:40:36
Wolves linked with santo what u think.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 May 2017 08:23:54
Just looked at his playing record and managerial record. Not great reading I'm afraid.

26 May 2017 09:08:37
If its him we need to give him a chance, problem is we are now back to square one again. A whole season lost, no lessons learned. But maybe, just maybe he will click and get us out of this league into the promised land.

26 May 2017 09:26:09
Another Mendes disaster in the making. Expect his troops to fall in then fall out again next year. Not impressed with his involvement at all. 👎😢.

26 May 2017 09:40:17
Banbury, took a second rate team up and got Valencia into the champions league. Also got Porto to finish second losing two games all year. that's not good enough?

26 May 2017 10:06:10
I'm not optimistic, a combination of Santo and Mendes could be a disaster. Look at his second season with Valencia when he and Mendes brought in a load of 2nd rate Portugese players. Valencia in chaos and fans not impressed [compounded when they then appointed Gary Neville! ].

26 May 2017 10:08:02
His credentials are far higher than where we are now! Imo a positive move from Fosun 👍.

26 May 2017 10:09:25
@banburywolf? How is his managerial record not good enough?

26 May 2017 10:11:16
Are you jokein what he's done in football at the age of 43 lol clsss.

26 May 2017 10:16:29
I can't believe some of the negative comments above. Santo is a disaster? We're not Barcelona you know. Santo is class, in fact probably the classiest coach we have been linked with. His record is easily good enough for Wolves. We will be lucky to get him.

26 May 2017 10:15:11
I don't know. I've given up for the time being!

26 May 2017 10:32:51
His time at Rio Ave was incredible, he led Valencia to a good finish in Spain and finished 2nd with Porto? Somebody tell me a better manager that we could attract?
Win % of 47% over his 3 jobs. Can't believe some of our fans think it will be a bad appointment?! Yes I'd never heard of him before he was mentioned and when I 1st heard his name I thought not another Zenga! But after research about him it filled me with excitement.

26 May 2017 10:37:16
It looks like a positive move until you see all the involvement from Mendes, then it all starts to get very murky. My preferred candidate from the Portuguese shores was always Marco Silva. There's something about that coach that tells me he's got what it takes quite apart from the fact he has a good track record. Can't wait for another influx of Portuguese players, most of whom have no experience in our leagues. HC was an exception to that I admit, but we had to pay good money for him and that by and large is the gist of it - to get good players they cost! We need various additions to the team, most of whom will cost money if they are proven and quality. Just can't see us getting off this roundabout whilst Mendes has the level of involvement he appears to have?! I want to be optimistic, but find myself being more realistic. The cup is half full, but while he still has involvement the other half is still half empty! :-)

26 May 2017 11:04:56
Lol not here even 12 months and it's mendes this that. do you won't to go and look how many players we got that was on his books? O the class 2 wingers no one ever heard of. broke records twice in a week lol some of you need to chill . we had 3 weeks to get players in and a manger. some worked ie Costa cav even silvo in 3 games. John was injured . wot as mendes done so rung. now if we only got 3 players you all would be saying were the money your ripping us off. just can't win. just like nuno never heard of him but did you costa rav Swiss? Tbf I like prince tho he was growing each game 'him or savil? . give them time they even said 3 years and a 10 year plan. chill you beans lads. could be a Coventry fan.

26 May 2017 12:10:10
For me santo sounds a great appointment if we get him he's by far the best we've had for along time I think he's got a good track record with Valencia and Porto it was when Neville was manager that things went wrong for Valencia santo left before that he should b able to attract quality players to wolves.

26 May 2017 13:02:26
Anyone who has read my posts will know my views on Mendes so I will not repeat them again. But I must disagree with you Dappa about two class wingers - Cav, as far as I an concerned is a waste of £7m. He does not have the desire, workrate or attitude and thinks he's Ronaldo with his step overs, with poor final ball.

Also Saiss is a walking yellow card who keeps giving the ball away. Price and Evans can do that! Costa was the only successful signing last season.

26 May 2017 14:03:56
StattoWolf I have to totally disagree with you on cav. You either don't watch many games or youcertainly do not watch his movement off the ball both offensively and defensively. Costa may have had much more of an impact in terms of goals etc. But honestly the work rate between them is totally different Costa struggles working back defensively but Cav is always willing to bust a gut to help out at the back. At first he wasn't but his learned that side of the game. Also just like I heard many fans when Costa first came into the team saying he was too lightweight and wasn't good enough but he proved them wrong. Many people seem to forget that Cav played a lage portion of games carrying an injury such was his desire to play! and his influence when he came back into the team fit was a defining moment in us staying up from a personal point of view. Not just from his own performance but the lift he provided to those around him as Costa even upped his game back to his standards after a bit of a bad spell. Those two fully fit will be a complete menace next season. Also in terms of his desire, work rate and attitude against forest at home coady may well get accredited with the block on the line but don't underestimate Cavs part in the fact he raced his nuts off to get back and then flung himself into a challenge to stop the initial effort allowing coady time to get back. As fantastic as costa has been he would never have done the same as Cav in that situation. But I suppose that's because Cav has no desire no workrate and a poor attitude.

26 May 2017 14:24:04
Imo Saiss is a red card waiting to happen.

26 May 2017 15:53:31
Sbrek, we will have to agree to disagree about Cav. I have seen plenty of matches where he has not had the desire to chase back, where he has been doing step over after step over and then not getting crosses in (which is his job as a winger) . I am not saying he has been awful in every game, but over the course of the season he has not shown consistency and there have been plenty of games where he has been anonymous.

He has not impressed me with his desire or end product and his red card just summed up that he was not ready to roll his sleeves up to help the team.

26 May 2017 16:09:53
So price side passing Edwards with out goals headless chicken' savil ect have done better that mendes signing come on . its there first seasingle in UK and thay would easy be the first two looked at to be sold. red card saiss lol I remmber we loved Kevin mustcst.

26 May 2017 17:56:52
Like I said, I've not been impressed. Saiss loses the ball too often and is sloppy in possession. His first touch has been poor leading to reckless tackles and bookings. Just saying that he has been no better than what we have got. Again, my opinion. Would prefer to see Oniangue given a run, at least he got on the scoresheet.

Plus I don't think that Mendes is his agent and I definitely didn't name Saville in my post as he is heading for my Worst Alltime XI!

26 May 2017 23:07:05
Fair enough statto each to their own opinion, but I think you put cav in a good footballing system and you'd see how good he can be as he did make a huge difference when he came back from injury and has huge potential, I wouldn't say his red card against derby was not wanting to roll his sleeves up more so frustration and stupidity. As concerns the crossing situation half the time there's no one in the box and the other half the time it's 4ft Dicko against 6 ft odd centre halves and given the goal scoring record of our strikers last season I'd refuse to put the ball in the box!

27 May 2017 08:34:53
If we can keep Costa we have 4 quality wingers dying for a new striker to get on the end of their crosses and build up play. RW Costa or Marshall LW Cav or Graham. Looks good to me!
