    Goalscoring

    We all know this is a huge problem for us. It's also one of the hardest (and most expensive) problems to solve in the transfer market. But what tactic should we try? Do we go for a Jimenez replacement in the hope they'll score fifteen a season? That seems the obvious answer, but unless we spend...

    Leaders

    Too often in football, 'leadership' = bullying. It's shouting at others, especially young players, and it reinforces a hierarchy and culture of fear which is unhelpful for honest discussion. But that's not the case at Wolves. Our team has leaders throughout, and they all encourage eagerly...

    When Saka, Rashford and Sancho come to Mol next season

    Let's give them a huge cheer, at least before the game. All of them have contributed so much to English football (and the country more generally in Rashford's case) and I cannot imagine how they feel following the racist abuse they've had since last night. Let's show them that Wolverhampton...

    Edit: Joint Third Lowest Top Scorer in Premier League History

    Edit: originally had second as I missed out Huddersfield. Unless Neves scores or Silva scores a brace against Utd (or Saiss gets a hat-trick), our top scorer this season will have 5 goals (Neto and Neves). I think that will be the joint third lowest top scorer for a club in Premier League...

    Why the Back Four tonight?

    I can't see the logic at all, but there are four possible reasons. They're not mutually exclusive, but what do we think was the dominant factor?

    Where does Podence fit in?

    I love Podence. He makes things happen, and can lift us when we're flat. But I'm not sure where he fits into our best team at the moment. Assuming everyone's fit (including Jimenez), and no-one's left, where do we play him next season?

    Wolves videos at Media Archive of Central England

    Lots of gold (and black) here. Highlights include: Vox pops after Bill McGarry's sacking. John Ireland was not popular! Footage of a banquet for the title winning side of 1959, including an extract from Billy Wright's speech. Interesting how globally focussed it is. Britt Ekland and ELO on our...

    Team for Chorley?

    I know it's early, but what do we do? Give some fringe players a chance to show what they can do with a view to them coming into the first team without the baggage of the rest? Or give first team players the chance to play themselves into form? I'd go back to three at the back for the rest of...

    Pressing

    We've tried to change our style this season, but one thing we still don't do is press consistently and as a coherent unit high up the pitch. Can't help but feel it'd really help us, but would require a lot of time on the training ground and high fitness levels.

    Useless for us, great against us

    Inspired by Emi Martinez' performance yesterday... GK: Emi Martinez RB: ??? (Marc Edworthy, perhaps, if he was ever good against us) LB: ???? CB: Adrian Williams CB: Ivar Ingimarsson RW: Greg Halford LW: Michael Gilkes CM: Jamie O'Hara CM: Tony Dinning (harsh? he was good for a bit) CF: Steve...

    Kits Inspired by Ours

    A bit of international break filler. Exactly what it says in the title, basically: clubs who wear a kit inspired, at least partially, by the old gold and black. I only know of two, but there must be others - perhaps abroad? Newport County In 1896 John Lysaght steel works relocated from...

    3-5-2?

    I wonder if Nuno might switch back to this against better teams? It might be seen as a defensive move, but I think it could help us exert more control. I thought Neves and Dendoncker both played quite well individually yesterday, but were too often isolated and Leicester ran through them with...

    The Farewell Vinagre Thread

    I've enjoyed this lad: someone who enjoys his football, never hides and has given us plenty of happy memories. He's another one who took a punt on our project and has been important to our success. I don't think we should allow his recent mediocre form to be our lasting memory - he must have...

    If players get better when they're not playing...

    ...then how good is Max Kilman now?

    Abdoulaye Doucore linked

    We're 'tracking' him, according to the Evening Standard. Doesn't seem a very us signing, but he'd be a good one.

    Danny Loader - young Reading striker

    Linked here. Part of the World Cup winning U17 squad with Gibbs-White a couple of years back, and has made a few appearances for Reading this season, with one goal. 4 in 10 for England U19s too.

    Aaron Mooy

    The Birmingham Mail is saying we've been linked with him, though I can't see where they've got that from. He'd be a phenomenal signing, I think: I've seen a bit of Huddersfield this season and he really makes them tick. Plays a similar role to Jack Price/McDonald: sitting deep and dictating the...

    Mendes' relationship with Wolves

    1. Mendes is involved in signing players for a network of clubs in Portugal and Spain - plus us in the UK. 2. Players move around between those clubs: Helder Costa, Silvio, Cavaleiro, Ola John have all played for three of them, I think. 3. Mendes will take a percentage of whatever money...

    Kjetil Haug

    Apologies if I've missed this elsewhere, but from the Mail's report of the U23s v West Brom it seems we've currently got Man City's 18 year old Norwegian keeper Kjetil Haug (on emergency loan, presumably, after we failed to get Johnston).

    'Foreign' vs. 'British' Players

    There's been a lot of talk on here about the differences between our 'foreign' players and our 'British' players and I think it's unhelpful.* Sadly, Lambert's repeated this division in his early interviews, although hopefully he's just saying what fans/journalists want to hear. The idea is that...
