One thing in Wolves favour with Bruno is he is well respected in Portugal. So getting players from there is a little easier than anywhere else.

The Portuguese link says Rafa Silva too.
"Lage wants to fish in Portugal. The former Benfica coach has already expressed to the Wolves management that he intends to count on Rafa and João Palhinha next season. Both players are interested in heading to the Premier League."
Where's this?

I didnt say I wanted Saiss to stay but it is common knowledge the club offered him a new deal as they have done with Moutinho. Neither have accepted for whatever reason.

I just have the feeling there is a lot up in the air at the club and that makes me uncomfortable.
It's Saiss last big contract probably......he will be looking for a 3 year deal somewhere, he may well get it on a free transfer.....good luck to him ........we've offered him a year....that's the max we should...

There is uncertainty at a lot of clubs.... Leicester, Leeds all losing players .

And some want us to have more uncertainty, manager to go, owners to go, directors to go......it is bizarre sometimes...

About as long as it takes for Neves exit to be agreed.

Do think Palhinha is about good as we could reasonably expect to get though, so would soften the blow a tad. Could, and still could, be an awful lot worse.
Surely Fosun will shell out straight away to pick Palinha and Silva up. There's other clubs sniffing. If Neves is going to Barca we won't see his fee in hard cash, and if it is it'll be over 5 years.

No more bizarre than wanting to keep a manager who has overseen a third of a season in relegation form with no direction!

Isn't this how most transfers are done though? Aren't we one of the worst/best (depending on Outlook) for it?

Tarkowski is wildly overrated. Bit like our CBs, gets to sit on his 6 yard box all game and just head the ball. Further up the pitch with a higher line he is a flop waiting to happen.

Kamara and nice get though
Couldn’t. Agree. More.

Every time I watch the guy he reminds me of Roger Johnson in a back 5 for Blues. Head it, kick it. It’s got Villa written all over it.

If we actually get it done, Palhinha is a big step forward. For me, he is our Fabinho/Rodri and signals the move to 433, letting Morgan off the leash and driving the whole team 30 yards further up the pitch.

I have got all of my fingers crossed!
Shame we can’t have Neves & Moutinho too.
Yeah, yeah I want the moon on a stick, something, something Chorley.

They are, but people keep saying there's going to be all this money for transfers from the Neves sale. It won't be there all at once in case people thought different.

But does it matter if we pay transfers the same way?

It doesn't need to be, we do the same when we buy players

Agree. I see no problem for LB & RB in Jonny, Semedo & RAN. think they’d do well as oppose to the Wing Back options. Just need a solid reliable CB who would play next to who in CB, Kilman would be my first choice, but then do you drop the Captain Coady??

Personally I think it’s time Coady moved on. OK in a back 5, will get slaughtered in a 4. Need to bed Kilman in with a back 4 formation before he becomes only reliant in a 5.

And we have very good young forwards who’ll flourish in a front 3 with an Attacking Midfielder ( Gibbs-White? )

All very interesting IMO!!

When we are looking at andre almeida who is announced in the portgual u21 squad, and palinha in the portugal squad.

And a name of vitor ferreria (vitinha) is also announced in the portgual squad, goncalves and vitinha ones that got away.

Vitinha what a let down for not spending the money, when we are looking to spend 14m on hwang..

View attachment 28085

Hindsight’s a wonderful thing.
For me there really was nothing to suggest Vitinha was worth an 18m punt…that was his option figure.

From the very(!) little I’ve seen of him, he reminds me of Matic. Big, physical, does the dirty work well then plays the simple pass to the playmaker. Surely someone more creative comes in next to him?

Could anyone shed any light on Rafa Silva as a player?

What’s he like, his main attributes and position?
