Wolves Transfer Rumours
Use our rumours form to send us wolves transfer rumours.
15 Mar 2017 21:25:28
Are we as fans really going to shrug our shoulders if costa is sold?
how about keep him and sign more like him?
15 Mar 2017 21:31:51
Everyone has their price he probably has a buyout clause anyway.
15 Mar 2017 21:39:09
Yet everybody still slags Mendes off. Personally, I think he deserves a pat on the back. Cavaliero is a top class player, too.
15 Mar 2017 21:48:31
We can do a lot with £25m or whatever his clause is. Costa goes, Mendes gets us someone else.
15 Mar 2017 22:21:45
Let's not forget that we still have Zyro and Graham on our books.
15 Mar 2017 23:30:01
Wednesfield that's exactly what should happen. We should keep Helda and purchase more like him if we are to progress. Also go for Silva. ⚽️👍😉.
16 Mar 2017 06:27:31
Keep Costa? Against all expectations we turned his loan into a purchase in January. Kudos to us. Playoffs looked possible at that stage and the thought of Costa playing for us in the PL. Then we went on a losing streak. Now we are probably on Plan B which realistically is to get the biggest profit on Costa we can. I'm sure Costa has a buyout clause and also an agreement that he can leave on friendly terms if we failed to get promoted this season.
16 Mar 2017 06:53:36
Why are you all saying he's being sold
16 Mar 2017 07:46:10
Just being realistic about Costa. When he came to us on loan, he had a buy out clause. His new contract with us almost certainly has a buy out release clause, my guess around the £25mil mark. The newspapers recently reported that Chelsea and Spurs are interested. Go figure.
16 Mar 2017 09:03:58
Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka will be sacked if his side fail to perform against Manchester United this weekend. That was in the DAily Star today.
16 Mar 2017 10:27:04
Hope so, I'd have him at Wolves.
16 Mar 2017 10:57:14
Fosun want to replace Lambert with Sheffield Wednesday's manager this summer. We can pay him more.
16 Mar 2017 11:39:16
Karanka has just been sacked.
16 Mar 2017 11:49:26
PT. Why would you want Karanka when your main complaint about Uncle Kenny and Lambert was that they are too negative. Boro fans had the same complaint about Karanka.
16 Mar 2017 12:23:50
Karanka is a Mendes client who brought us Costa and Cavaleiro our two most exciting players, them two together would work out brilliantly or would u rather Lambert and Thellwell combining together to continue pickin Edwards and Saville?
16 Mar 2017 12:43:55
Actually I think it is time to replace Thelwell. I'll reserve judgement on Lambert until the end of the season.
So Karanka's negative football will be ok?
Please don't get defensive. I'm just interested because you really disliked it when you perceived Jackett and Lambert as playing negatively, but you'll be happy to have Karanka who is ultra defensive.
16 Mar 2017 12:44:02
Karanka was quoted as saying ealier in the season, we just need to take games to 80 mins at 0-0 and then try and sneak one, is that really what we want?
16 Mar 2017 13:01:31
Big clear out at Wolves I want if we don't go down with coach/ manager bringing is own backroom staff in, with money we have it would be nice to persuade someone who is proven and get us to the next level, but my main concern is to hopefully stay in this division, don't want to even think about we getting relegated it would be unthinkable for our club if we did.
Would like to give credit were it's due and congratulate the team on a positive performance against a good Brentford side who are good on there own patch, just wish we can play like that at home, if we did we would of been in play offs.
10 games to go Lambert you still got time to prove yourself as a good coach especially if you play like the Brentford game.
16 Mar 2017 13:11:11
The football at molineux under Lambert is mind numbin so anybody will be an improvement! At boro his win percentage is over 46%, what's lamberts here? 😂😂😂.
16 Mar 2017 13:29:25
Karanka has gone from Middflesbrough today @derbywolf.
16 Mar 2017 13:52:07
With Karanka a client of Mendes, can only see it going one way. Carlos Carvalhal is the other summer option.
16 Mar 2017 13:52:25
Lambert's win percentage at Wolves is 38%.
Interestingly, having listened to Boro fans they too were mind-numbingly bored by Karanka’s tactics. Of course I can’t deny facts and Karanka does have a high win ratio.
So to be clear, you are happy with negative football as long as it’s winning football. There’s nothing wrong with that at all. I’d love it if we won every game for the rest of the season one-nil.
Funny thing is, Unlce Kenny had a win ratio of 46% at Wolves.
16 Mar 2017 14:10:57
I want promotion and we've more chance with Karanka than Lambert. Look at blues their supposedly playin better footy but results r crap! Would be lovely to have great football and win, but out the two when your in the championship you want to win and gain promotion to the Prem, good football or not.
16 Mar 2017 14:14:14
How many times have wolves beat a middlesboro side managed by Karanka? Still no better than a championship manager. If we got rid of PL I'd want better
KJ win % is massaged by a season in L1.
16 Mar 2017 14:25:00
Tell u what Clive let's get Ted Vizard back he had a 48.9% win ratio! 👍.
16 Mar 2017 15:33:15
Or Big Sam. His win percentage for England was 100%.
16 Mar 2017 15:50:18
I hate to tell you this PT, but Ted died.
I must be psychic. I knew someone would put the League One argument in there.
Uncle Kenny took a club that was on it's knees and managed to not only get promoted straight away, but with record points total as well.
And PT, I agree with you that we need to be promoted. So here’s the deal. You can complain about Paul Lambert losing games as that is how you judge managers, but not his style of football, however mind numbing you find it, because as you have said the result is all that matters.
16 Mar 2017 16:01:19
Mendes client Marc Wilmots has 59.1% win ratio. But he did have Hazard, DeBruyne and Lukaku in his team.
16 Mar 2017 16:08:54
It was said tongue in cheek Clive, as far as judgin managers goes isn't football a results game and that's the way chairmen boards and fans judge them?
17 Mar 2017 15:54:42
Wilmots win ratio is higher with Belgium than I thought, overall 64% but in competitive games 73.33%.
17 Mar 2017 17:02:25
He still wouldn't be good enough for some on here, their quite happy with Loser Lambert.
18 Mar 2017 16:56:16
Absolutely agree Paul. Very happy with Super Lambert. Now he has a decent squad to choose from. Great signings in January, the only manager to get the best out of Weimann. Dangerous in double figures for the first time.
15 Mar 2017 13:22:59
First time we've won man utd style last gasp never give up. and guess what we didn't start pressing on the 8th. Anyone for the play offs?
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.
15 Mar 2017 17:00:33
We were in the play-offs for the 3 relegation spots last week! Perm any 3 from 5 it looked. Amazing turnaround.
15 Mar 2017 01:30:21
Will we make five changes for the Fulham game?
Saville got to be due a 'rest'?
Games coming thick and fast after international break, will we get the same team twice?
Or keep 'freshening it up?
Need a new Gk in summer along with full back, two centre halves, holding midfielder, attacking midfielder and a couple of strikers then we can aim for top half 2917/ 18.
15 Mar 2017 02:51:25
Hope it doesn't take us 900 years to get it right!
15 Mar 2017 13:24:14
Sako wants to come back to Wolves, that's pretty obvious now. If we get rid of Costa this summer, we could do a lot worse.
15 Mar 2017 15:31:55
How's it obvious? I've not seen.
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 16:45:23
wavidsmith, I seriously doubt that Fosun will sell costa for less than his 25 million asking price.
Geldon Martins Anyone?
Martins, Sako, Caverlio up front. What a front three.
15 Mar 2017 19:38:49
I suspect Gelson Martins has bigger fish to fry to be honest.
15 Mar 2017 21:07:46
Cuz they have only brought costa to sell him on. profit. that's what fosun are about. wolves are a selling club.
15 Mar 2017 21:24:13
Fosun will take £20m for Costa. Sako smells a lifeline but Villa want him, too.
14 Mar 2017 07:52:32
Heard some big gossip last night from within Compton I wanted to share. As I say and continue to iterate its gossip, but the person I heard it from was adamant that it was nailed on info.
Fosun wanted to and came close to sacking Lambert after the Blues game. The older heads on the board talked them out of it after the Solbakken and McCarthy sackings. But another factor is now that Fosun have earmarked one man only as the clubs next manager. That man is Marco Silva. They are prepared to wait to see if Hull stay up but should they be relegated Wolves will pounce with a big money offer to Silva. I was also told that if Hull stay up Fosun's contingency plan could involve Marc Wilmotts. But that info seemed a bit more vague.
Just passing on what I have heard guys. Need to avoid defeat tonight if we can. A point away at Brentford could be a useful one.
14 Mar 2017 08:36:21
Omg yes Silva would be amazing. His football is fancy and perfect for our team. Hope hull go down then.
14 Mar 2017 09:07:22
Marco Silva? But Paul Merson said he was no good. Anybody could win 17 consecutive games of football.
Seriously though, a simple betting strategy is this. Whatever Merson says, bet the opposite.
14 Mar 2017 09:17:19
Hope for a club to get relegated so we can get their manager, no wonder we're going backwards, need some "winners" and a couple of good coaches to work with Mr Lambert would be a start.
14 Mar 2017 09:54:28
It won't be Silva.
14 Mar 2017 10:49:44
Hi Ho Silva Lining! Please 👍😉⚽️.
14 Mar 2017 11:38:46
Does anyone take any notice of what Merson says? He's an alchie! Good footballer but let himself down with the bottle. Sad as it is.! Whether we get Silva or not time will tell. I for one think he would be a good move and has a very good track record and knows what he wants! ⚽️👍😉.
14 Mar 2017 12:22:10
I imagine that Lambert has already discovered he isn't getting his contract renewed. Perhaps after his January manager of the month nomination he wanted to get some assurances on his long term future but the conversation didn't go well.
This might explain results in Feb/ March, his and the players lack of confidence.
14 Mar 2017 12:56:17
If I remember rightly, Marco Silva was in the frame for the Wolves job last summer when the first choice, the Spanish coach, changed his mind. Silva has done a fantastic job with Hull. Shame we ended up with the third choice, Zenga, who was a part-timer really, given his residence in Dubai.
Surprisingly (to me anyway) Lambert has done so badly. He probably knows he is on borrowed time now.
14 Mar 2017 13:35:30
If Lambert thinks he will get sacked he will walk so I very much doubt these rumours are true as I some how think he would know before your friend if that was the case.
The team and manager need our support and WE don't NEED A FOREIGN MANAGER!
Lambert deserves time, I hate his current team selections and tactics but with players like Edwards, Saville, Batth then what do you expect?
Biggest problem at the club is Therwell without a doubt. If anyone is to be sacked it should be him. How someone can perform so poor in recruitment is beyond belief. Why have all our underperforming players been rewarded with new contracts?
14 Mar 2017 14:31:12
DC. it is unbelievable Thelwell is still with us. He has overseen Squad recruitment and is the prime reason we are in this situation.
4 managers already this season have failed with these players.
Not supporting Lambert, but in any business situation, you clear out from the top first. Complete overhaul of the management structure needed.
Don't change the manager at this stage, it will not help.
14 Mar 2017 18:05:57
Surely they must have recognized that all he is good for is "one for the future" and that's it.
Thelwell has no idea about senior players at all.
14 Mar 2017 19:06:35
I never like putting anyone in the frame for the boot but I have to just question how Sporting Director Thelwell's performance is measured. Is he Lambert's boss? If the first team loses or plays rubbish obviously the Head Coach gets grief or sacked but it seems to have no impact on him. If the under 18's results are rubbish the coach gets sacked but no impact on the Sporting Director. Does he have responsibility for appointing managers? Did he appoint Jackett or was it Moxey or both? If so was there any comeback on him when Jackett was sacked? If his job is player recruitment he must have been busy in the summer buying our rreserve goalie cause all the other summer signings were Mendes. The two January signings were Lambert's so what has he been doing for the last six months. Who was it in the January before that who went shopping for a striker and came back with Mason a number ten. Why have we had no recognised left back since Golbourne went 14 months ago. Just curious what our Sporting Director actually does that's all.
14 Mar 2017 19:47:55
I now one or two people on here wanted Rowett as manager but he's been appointed Derby manager till end of season.
13 Mar 2017 23:15:32
Next manager is: Joao Oliveira - more B players from Lisbon in League One relegation fight next season. Star will be Ennis.
14 Mar 2017 00:41:57
Tinker mans available.
14 Mar 2017 06:25:57
Who says Lambert is being sacked?
14 Mar 2017 09:32:58
we need a man that gives 'bounce'
13 Mar 2017 07:11:40
If Fosun are contemplating sacking Lambert before the season ends then I hope they have observed and learned from the past, and have a quality replacement lined up, who will provide an instant bounce. Just remember not to re-run Clipboard and desperate Dean!
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.
13 Mar 2017 11:16:25
He won't ever be a hero! He's a dead man walkin.
13 Mar 2017 11:29:23
I'm pretty sure approx 99% thought he was a hero when we beat Liverpool. You and Wednesfield Wolf must have been the unhappy 1%.
13 Mar 2017 11:55:19
U still livin off one cup win? Do u go to games? Have u looked at the league table and Lamberts record? Obviously not!
13 Mar 2017 12:01:36
I'm less confident we'll survive after Saturdays win than before the match I know that sounds a bit daft but I can't remember a performance that bad for years . I've always said a manager needs at least 3 transfer windows in which to build his own team but I'm sorry to say it but if this guy stays then I think we will be relegated I hope i'm wrong .
13 Mar 2017 12:12:55
Lose against Brentford and Fulham and Lambert will be history. Win both games and he will be a hero. Someone's a here because we might not go down? Just shows how far we have fallen.
How can we beat Stoke and Liverpool, do well against Chelsea and yet still be in danger? Teams that win things, titles, cups, promotions etc are nothing if not consistent. We have been so inconsistent this season it's unbelievable, it's tragic. I don't know the answer, I thought Lambert was the answer but he's apparently not.
13 Mar 2017 12:20:27
Paul, why are you so aggressive if someone doesn't see things the way you see them. When did I say PL is doing a good job? If you actually cared to look, you'll see that I'm replying to your direct quote where you said PL will never be a hero. What was your opinion of him immediately after the Liverpool game you know before we went on the losing streak? I bet you didn't want him out then did you considering he'd only lost about 2 games. And yes I do go to the games but not all of them because I have a job which allows me 1 weekend off every 9 weeks. What's your point. We ain't all as negative as you.
13 Mar 2017 13:11:36
I'm not negative but I certainly don't bury my head under a stone! I'm not aggressive I'm passionate about Wolves!
13 Mar 2017 13:26:54
Paul T, so what's your view on our next coach if PL is dead man walking?
13 Mar 2017 13:34:09
Jas the trouble is that nobody really wanted him in the first place (myself included ) so every time things go wrong then we all jump on him straight away. You are right in what you said about the Liverpool match but that was a long time ago now and since then its gone down hill fast. Saturday was awful and we should have lost to maybe the worst team in the history of the championship. There is no excuses for this and if we don't do something fast then I think we will go down and this would be a disaster for the fosun project. HOPE I'M WRONG.
13 Mar 2017 14:13:43
I've had a think about it and I feel a foreign coach would be best as we seem to do a lot of business through Mendes, I'm sure Fosun have got someone lined up. I wanted British but as Lambert has shown it doesn't mean best. U only have to look at the top places in our division and the Prem, foreign managers and coaches.
13 Mar 2017 14:54:00
we will not gain anything by changing managers who have to work with some another managers players who simply are not good enough as it has proved season after season . Let him clear out the dross in the summer and bring in his own, then you can truly judge him .
13 Mar 2017 15:08:07
All the focus is on the manager. he may be OK, he may not. but he is the 4th manager to have a go trying to find the right formula with the dross assembled under Thelwell. That must tell us all something!
Like many, I don't understand the team choices, but there is clearly a major issue in the squad. Most who get selected go "missing" in games.
I don't rate many in the squad, but there is enough there to be doing a lot better.
For me no point in changing managers for the 4th time with just 11 games to go. look what happened last time we did that!
Let's hope we survive and THEN review.
13 Mar 2017 15:29:54
I was never keen on Lambert'and still don't want him up the mol, but what is happening now isn't just down to him' this is down to the players at his disposal more than anything, they just aren't good enough'as a whole, the players who have come through the academy haven't really set the world alight and players brought in from outside haven't been any better, but this is what happens when you try to compete with clubs willing to spend money while you won't spend yourself'and you are committed to reducing outgoings by any means possible'as was the case with Morgan/ moxey, what we are living with now is the hangover from that regime.
How many decent signings did we miss out on because of wage demands etc'in life you get what you pay for, football is no different.
If he can keep us up this season then he will have to be given the funds to rebuild the team, let's just hope the majority of the squad get shown the exit.
13 Mar 2017 15:36:31
Rugeley the last sentence is about right. IF we manage to stay up and the rumours are true that PL goes then I suggest Denis Bergkamp.
13 Mar 2017 15:44:08
It's funny PL is at the forefront for us in this position yes he carries the can but we can all see the lack of quality in the squad. I don't see many moaning about our great strikers who got picked week in week out and still can't find the net. In Dickos case coming back from injury ok but 20 plus games is a joke. They get comfy lives these players most of which are not fit to wear the shirt. It's clear we need patience this isn't Lamberts squad we can better judge him when he has more than 1 player he has bought in. If he goes this week or the summer I think Fosun should too. Apart from deep pockets what success and football knowledge had they bought so far.!?
13 Mar 2017 15:51:15
Having thought about this for a while, I'm not one for wanting any manager sacked unless it's clear that we are taking a backward step like we were under Connor and Saunders. However, the vast majority of the team that played against Rotherham were not signed by Lambert. The 2 players in the team that he signed created and scored the goal. It cannot be all Lamberts fault because these players have let down KJ, WZ and now PL. It is the players that need to go. PL has a proven track record at taking teams up. Of course I would love the football to be better but I think getting us safe and then giving PL a free reign in the summer to get rid of Ikeme, Batth, Saville etc and bring in his players. At the moment he is forced to play who he plays as he doesn't have the players he wants at his disposal.
13 Mar 2017 16:06:45
The only cash I'd give Lambert is severance pay! Sorry if that comes across as me bein aggressive Jas 😂.
13 Mar 2017 16:11:52
I wish that cup run had never happened.
13 Mar 2017 16:14:32
If we can't get Rowett now, I wouldn't bother. Nobody on the current list is any better than Lambert anyway.
13 Mar 2017 16:15:52
Warburton is the only other I would consider, but it is too late for this now and is best left until the end of the season.
13 Mar 2017 18:30:34
Think Paul Tamworth is being treated a little unfairly 😂 He has a very valid point. PL is not the same manager he was at Norwich, he feels broken to me, maybe the Villa job has ruined him. Yes he's got limited resources with us and hasn't had a lot of time, neither has Warnock at Cardiff. I'm not saying I'd like Warnock as manager just pointing out it can be done. I'd like Rowett or if at all possible Jokanovic or again if possible Dyche (even though his voice irritates me)
13 Mar 2017 18:58:00
All good head coaches will have a system of play that they believe in. The instil this belief into the players that their system will bring out the best of them and that the head coach will play the best players in that position to deliver his tried and trusted way of playing. Villa, Huddersfield, Leeds, Fulham, Sheffield W, Brighton Cardiff, QPR, even blues under Rowett to name a few have had issues but have managers who deliver their system. The players need to believe in the manager but I don't think they believe in PL.
I'm losing, probably lost faith with him after Saturdays shower. We need a manager not head coach, someone who has 100% control over what players come, go and contracts. Who it is I would look Pearson, McKay, even Giggs.
13 Mar 2017 22:18:02
Jas M I thought you said Evans, Saville etc were quality? Well at least that's what you said when we beat Liverpool now you want rid of them. Talk about have your cake and eat it! You need to think about what you actually want instead of trying to cain PT all the time. You change your mind more times than the weather!
13 Mar 2017 22:33:42
Well stuucorbett HE might be getting on a bit, but you are right with Warnock saved Rotherham last year done brilliant with Cardiff on limited resources this year, you may laugh but Warnock would of got we out this Division with the money we spent, put it this way we would not of been in this position if he were in charge.
13 Mar 2017 22:29:03
Next season starting XI: League One
Iorfa Batth Hause Doherty
Price Gibbs-White Ronan
Zyro Ennis Graham.
14 Mar 2017 10:34:41
Evans and Saville quality 😂😂😂.
12 Mar 2017 20:52:47
Glad to see that it looks nailed on for Rowett to get the Derby job. It means we won't have to suffer him.
12 Mar 2017 22:01:50
No, we'll just get another Zenga instead and yet more instability.
13 Mar 2017 05:52:08
I would have to say that another Zenga seems quite an attractive proposition given our current predicament.
13 Mar 2017 08:50:50
Marc Wilmots is a Fosun favourite.
13 Mar 2017 09:25:37
Anything is better than this Numpty trying to run our football club pinemaster, he as not, repeat got a clue, you cannot understand what he is on about, plays horrible hoof ball football, keeps changing players and puts square pegs in round holes.
Needs to go to spec savers if that is the kind of football he plays and says that we play well, the sooner he as gone the better.
13 Mar 2017 12:11:41
I agree but I just don't think Rowett would be any better.
13 Mar 2017 22:47:43
Like to say pinemaster you can laugh all you want but if you had given Warnock the money we have spent, I would stick my kneck out and say we would be in top 6 or promoted, he would of at least got we challenging for promotion out of this league, horses for courses I say, and he as been good at doing is job for years in the championship.
After all that's what Fosen brought the club for to take we in premier and stay there, the managers or coaches we have had after Mcarthy have been a waste of space.
14 Mar 2017 17:56:39
By next month: Steve Morgan buys back club from Fosun, Jez Moxey reappointed as CEO and Kenny Jackett returns as Coach - to rebuild from League One - again!
12 Mar 2017 20:13:19
Hello first time posting on this account as coudn't log into my other one (Johnwwfc)
I am have been told that Lambert will be gone by the end of the international break at the very latest and that we are already looking for replacements (more likely to revert to Plan A Which involves Mendes)
In the summer there will be a big clearout with the new manager able to bring in his own staff and Thewell leaving and possibly even Jeff Shi going.
Money will be made available for the new guys and promotion will be the aim
This years been a massive learning curve.
12 Mar 2017 21:21:01
Promotion from which league though?
12 Mar 2017 21:52:49
So if Shi is potentially leaving along with Thewell, whose responsible for appointing the new manager? Surely if Lambert is leaving in the next week or so before Shi and Thewell, what's to stop the appointing a dud as a parting shot.
13 Mar 2017 07:57:26
Guys ca down I think we can all agree that if Lambert goes we're not going to get a crap manager in place. We need someone like the ex Olympicacos boss can't remember his name but a real shout.

Mr Marco Silva please ASAP. Well when his contracts up at Hull. ⚽️👍😉.
13 Mar 2017 12:08:29
Silva can speak good English so no problem there.
13 Mar 2017 16:12:49
In the very short pace of time he's been at Hull he's done a great job 👍. His contract there is until the end of this season and as far as I know he well known to Mendes in a positive way. ⚽️👍😉.
09 Mar 2017 00:26:59
Any news on Lambert getting sacked?
09 Mar 2017 03:02:10
Yes he isn't.
09 Mar 2017 06:09:12
Jas now I see the sence.
09 Mar 2017 08:21:58
He will be.
09 Mar 2017 09:13:46
Lambert will be given the summer and reassessed one results from there.
I can't understand why all other players are coming out in the media and trying to explain the situation we in but have heard nothing off the skipper?
This says a lot about the dressing rom in my eyes.
New captain required soon as season has ended. We need leaders!
09 Mar 2017 09:43:03
New manager, and a new spine minimum in the summer if we're to challenge for promotion! People called Zenga and Saunders useless but their record is better than this idiots! Time for change Fosun!
09 Mar 2017 09:48:49
If Baath did come out and same something they'd only be other fans moaning about that as well.
09 Mar 2017 09:21:57
09 Mar 2017 12:20:31
The players don't have to apologise and keep makeing excuses, we fans are not thick and we now when things are not right and they have not been for a long time, but enough is enough now, wants a big clear out at the end of season, let's all hope we do not get relegated that would be unthinkable my team for Saturday would be 4-4-2 Ikeme, Coady, Hause, Williamson, Doherty, Costa, saiss, Price, Cavilaro, Dicho, Bodvarson.
09 Mar 2017 12:38:25
no player should have much to say TBH. talking on the pitch counts and currently most are dumb!
PT - Who do you want realistically as a Head Coach? this is not football manager where you reset every 5-6 months. Since Feb 2012 MM left, Connor 13 games, Solbakken 30 games, Saunders 20, Jackett 150, Zenga 17, Lambert currently around 20 not including Edwards two stints. Don't you think this has left us counting the cost of having two many poor quality players with constant clean slates with a new bloke coming in. How do you think any Head Coach can get a system with players he inherits. I hope that we follow sandwell towns recent way of thinking and stick with a bloke rather than get rid if the going is tough and building something solid.
09 Mar 2017 12:55:47
Ajwolf, Lambert states the squads to big? But he still can't find 11 winners and put round pegs in round holes! The baggies have had a few managers till they've found the right one, and now they have! Lambert couldn't lace Pullis's boots, he's absolutely clueless and makes Saunders look like Sir Alex! Sean Dyche, Warburton, Rowett are three I'd approach, but what they must be allowed to do is bring in Their own back room staff and clear the stale ones out we've got here, Mountain, Daley, Edwards etc!
09 Mar 2017 14:05:05
I agree that the backroom staff should go some have been here way too long and are complacent
What I can't believe is that a company of Fosuns financial power have settled for second best.
09 Mar 2017 13:43:47
I had a good idea last night, actually. What about replacing Kevin Thelwell with Kenny Jackett as head scout? Kenny is really respected within the game and just loves scouting those 'ones for the future'. It would benefit Paul Lambert, too, having somebody of the calibre of Jackett to fall back on.
I also think he would be good at scouting players from the UK, if Fosun are still going the 'tried and tested championship player' route. I fear many on here would just see that as the same as having Thelwell, but I don't think it would be a bad idea at all.
09 Mar 2017 13:55:45
In terms of head coach, you can't look any further than Rowett if Lambert only musters a draw up this weekend and consequently gets the boot.
09 Mar 2017 14:19:34
If u want Wolves to make progress, Jackett and Lambert shouldn't come into the equation.
09 Mar 2017 14:24:09
We've been crap since we introduced the head coach role. Go back to a manager who controls the club.
PT - we do have too many players and issue is we do not have ONE single player who could play in the prem every week. Unless we have some consistency nothing will change, why should it. Players are the only constan. rubbish on the pitch and laughing at us as its player power and the head coaches fault. Dyche LMFAO you really think he'd come to little wolves. Warburton looks like he falls out with his shadow and Rowett no better than Lambert with the players we have.
09 Mar 2017 14:52:49
He went to poxy Burnley and ended up with half our team! As I've said before, the ball is firmly in Fosuns court as to what level of success we achieve? Only they can change us from a little club mentality to MIGHTY WOLVES!
09 Mar 2017 14:57:26
ajwolf any manager would come to our great club if they were given the tools to do the job properly . Fosun are a multi billionaire company that can compete at any level they choose too its just up to them where they wish to take us. If this is to the top of English football then they need to spend somewhere in the region of 750m to 1 billion and to the top of European football well the sky's the limit.
09 Mar 2017 16:48:10
Upto 1 billion. really? You think anyone inc Fosun are going to spend that? does having guarantee success. no it only gives you choices and currently we make diabolical choices. The back room staff advising these choices have no prem or decent Champ experience so how do they know how to get to the prem. Ultimately are they going to advise Fosun to sack them? Fosun need balls and big chicken balls to deliver what they want. will it be prawn toast or a chinese banquet I know where my money would be.
09 Mar 2017 17:09:00
The fact of the matter is, if you want success in football the spending never stops!
09 Mar 2017 17:27:09
Aj I didn't say they would spend that kind of money I only said that they could spend that kind of money if they choose. Where have you been hiding for the last 15 years because at least two premier league clubs have clearly spent well over 750 million. I was just pointing out that they could have any manager they want if there willing to give them the tools to do the job properly. However I'm with you in thinking they won't spend anywhere near that kind of money but please don't sell us out thinking we couldn't attract a manager of Sean dyche calibre fosun could have however they want. Always remember like players there only do it for one thing MONEY.
09 Mar 2017 20:35:38
This isn't zenga or lambert fault but the players NOT being good enough. Until we get some prem quality all through the spine of the team we ain't going anywhere. Edwards been at the club 10 years and now our nailed on selection just shows how far we've gone backwards.
Dyche is out our league😜 After what he's achieved at, Burnley other prem teams would snap him up sharp.
09 Mar 2017 21:16:40
Little chance of us getting Dyche we need to find the Dyche of tomorrow we always go for managers with Championship experience like Lambert Jackett McCarthy Jones when we don't they last just a few matches like Deano Connor Zenga Solbakken
Lambert will be happy to keep us up now just a month ago he was talking of playoffs we should be able to do this but with Wigan and Blackburn winning it gets more complicated.
10 Mar 2017 22:14:29
I said it last week, and i say it now. Lambert back to Norwich, Rowett to us. Lambert loves Norwich, and it suits both parties in terms of their families and location. Even if Wolves win tomorrow, don't be surprised at this if Norwich take time in appointing someone.
11 Mar 2017 06:54:46
It's been said that Alan Pardew is going to come in.?
11 Mar 2017 09:14:28
Last bloke we need.
His ego enters the room before him.
11 Mar 2017 11:24:21
No I meant Pardew to go to Norwich so Lambert will be staying.
11 Mar 2017 11:53:18
Even if Lambert wins today, he could go. It's all politics. Norwich want Lambert, but he needs to be sacked to do so. It will only take one more defeat in the week anyway. As for our new manager, I can't look past Rowett because of the fact his kids are already settled and he likes it here. He also fits the 'young upcoming' model Fosun like so much. I even want the manager to lose today, just to quicken up the process. Pretty sad, eh?
11 Mar 2017 17:40:57
Just to be clear, Rowett failed to get promotion from division two in his two full seasons at Burton. He got into the playoffs each season but his team scored 71 goals then 47. We scored 51 the season we dropped out the championship. In two seasons at Blues he finished 10th each season scoring 63 goals. At the same time we were scoring 98 goals with the magic trio then in the season with the goal machines ALF and Siggy with KJ giving up on attack we scored 80 goals. I don't know what you are expecting of Rowett but although he has done alright with limited resources there is no way we could take a chance on him getting promotion. Start your search thinking about people who have got a team promoted then think about someone who has managed more than a season in the prem without ever getting relegated. See how many you can think of.
11 Mar 2017 20:40:33
Rowett is the best out there and Fosun would have chosen him a head of Lambert at the time. Now he is actually available, I can't see Fosun being interested in anyone else tbh.
11 Mar 2017 22:40:30
Not commenting on anything else on this thread, this is a response to victory v's comment about Rowett.
Rowett brought to Burton and Birmingham organisation and consistency something we haven't had in a long long time. Solid defence is the base of all successful teams, another tick in the Rowett box. I don't agree with hiring and firing all the time but I said before Zenga that we should have appointed Gary Monk and give him a 3-5 year plan as it was too good of an opportunity to pass up. I am saying the same thing again here with Rowett, get him in let him strip the team and re build, give him time money and patience for the 1st 2-3 years and go from there.
12 Mar 2017 10:02:42
Sorry Stuu I just disagree I think Rowett would be just another KJ type appointment. Organised and structured with limited resources. Within a season our fans would be chewing him up for his attrition football.
12 Mar 2017 12:55:41
Wolves are already after another foreign coach, according to The Sun. A Jaap Stam type is their preference. I still personally took they'd be mad to miss out on Gary Rowett.
12 Mar 2017 15:55:41
I think Roy hodgson is about the best manager out there by along way excellent club manager not sure about Rowett.
12 Mar 2017 15:55:46
On the subject of manager it is very clear that Lambert is the not the man to lead us to the next level - and when I say next level I mean a higher one! Regardless of the players he has at his disposal - and he decided in January that we didn't need a centre back or creative midfielder or striker - his approach is narrow minded, small time. We need a manager with vision who wants to play football which involves passing and moving not hoofing and hoping. A manager who wants to set up his side to win with style and a swagger not grind out a result. If that means a foreign manager then so be it. Personally I'd like to see someone like Dennis Bergkamp, the assistant manager at Ajax. Knows the English game, speaks English and believes in playing real football. With the necessary backing of Fosun it could be a match made in heaven.
12 Mar 2017 17:03:40
Interesting that there is talk of getting a new manager and then giving him 3 to 5 years to implement his restructuring plan.
How long has Lambert been here? Surely he needs time to work with this squad he inherited.
08 Mar 2017 10:25:02
During his tenure Zenga got berated for his policy of rotation. How not with Lambert, after all this time it appears he doesn't have a clue of his best team. As for the lack of goals, when is he going to play Enobahare as a second striker? Come to think of it what about a new partnership of Gladon or Duckens and Bright. Enobakhare has more skill in his little finger than Bodvarson and Dicko.
08 Mar 2017 18:52:34
I don't get why you would place a bet on your team to get relegated or to lose so jas m if rotherham are winning one nil then youd want them to score again to win your bet i'd that's not the case why place the bet to me backing against wolves is a no no and another no no is placing tesco town in an acca because to win my bet they would have to win and I never ever want them to lol still each to there own.
08 Mar 2017 22:05:38
Come sat we need to throw everything at em I would put the most attacking team we have this will make or brake us I know it mite be a bit mad but play hause and iorfa lb and rb doc in the middle with I hate to say it batth get them forward as much as we can Marshall one wing weimann other saiss middle cav costa bright 433 plez plez WIN.
08 Mar 2017 23:51:48
Bigste64, I've also got Wolves to win 3-1. I always put the us to win 3-1 and 4-2 and always for the opposition to beat us 2-0. Just hedging my bets.
