    Apologies if someone has posted this already, but I have only seen this today. A nice little piece about our midfield maestro - he seems to be a humble, well-grounded, down-to-earth sort of guy who won't move anywhere without his wife and two young daughters accompanying him and stresses the importance of him having days off from football to spend time with his family, enabling him to go back to work refreshed and able to focus 100%. Top bloke - we are so lucky to have him; and for the paltry sum of £5M - I still can't believe it! :)

    Imagine telling people 5 years ago that in 2018 Joao Moutinho would be grabbing us a deserved draw at Old Trafford in the Premier League. Surely, no one saw that coming!:confused:

    He seems to always be no more than 10 yards away from the ball no matter where it is on the pitch.

    Hadn't seen that so thanks for posting JimmyMac.

    My player of the season so far.

    Yes despite all he has achieved in the game he does come across as a very humble and down to earth guy on and off the pitch.

    After he scored Saturday he was desperately trying to drag himself over to the away fans but got mobbed by his team mates. Then as the players returned back for the restart Moutinho (almost back on the halfway line by now) turned around to applaud the away support as his name was ringing around Old Trafford. Not sure many of the so called superstars would have bothered to make that gesture. Most would've merely basked in the adulation they were receiving.

    Again at full time, after the Nuno love in the players were almost back to the tunnel at the opposite end to the travelling support and Moutinho's name was ringing around a now virtually empty Old Trafford. Again Joao stopped, turned and applauded the fans. A top bloke and genunely seems to be loving the support he is getting.

    What a lovely guy, as I said on the other thread, these Portuguese lads are really sound individuals.

    The closest in my time is Rae and Ince. So no we haven't, by a margin.

    Its a far cry from Sedgely and Atkins....

    Without wanting to take this too far off course from the brilliance of João Moutinho I raise you Robin Van Der Laan and Jens Dowe.

    Moutinho and Patricio were superb buys in the summer and both for relative peanuts given the crazy prices in today's market. These two guys are very experienced (something we were lacking), absolute top drawer and have made a real difference. We just need to buy a prolific striker in January and we could even threaten the top 6.

    I hope the younger players are listening to his every word and watching his every move. What a role model to have. And to think we used to have Roger Johnson as captain.

    Must've been a strange move for him, end of his career and potentially made him look average and ruin a successful career, paying off so far :)

    I hope that the way he plays the game and with his professional approach he'll be with us for at least another 3 years too. He'll still be class at 35 you can just tell

    We are already a threat. We are in 7th. and still 30 games to go. Have no doubt, the big guys are watching us very carefully. I bet every Wolves game videos from last year and this year are being analyzed for weaknesses.
    Not only are we back.......we are respected.

    I know he plays in a different position, and it was in a different era, but Moutinho is the best player I have seen since Peter Knowles. And I did not think I would ever see a better player than Knocker.

    Effortless and graceful. Seems to read the game head of everyone else. The perfect player for Neves to learn from. Jota called him a legend and one of his idols and was happy he joined.

    Genuinely the best player I've ever seen in a Wolves shirt.

    Both him and Patricio could play for any of the top clubs and wouldn't look out of place. I can't believe they're playing for my team!

    I said the same about Neves, Jota, Boly et al last year. I can't wait to find out who I'm going to he saying it about next year!

    I agree we are already a threat. I have been extremely positive about our chances this season from the outset. What I was trying to say was that if we converted a higher proportion of the chances we create we could really be up there, so a top striker in January could make a massive difference.
