If we are to receive 16M for Doc then I think it will be good business. The club looks for “young and hungry “ so 16M should go a significant way to buying in someone as a replacement who can give us several years of service.
Will be sorry to see Doc leave but he is now entering the twilight years of his career and there must be a good youngster out there somewhere. I would imagine that the club have already identified various targets.

Personally I think young Oscar Buur probably has potential to fill Doc's boots with the good coaching he's likely to continue receiving from Nuno and his team.

Weren’t we after Maitland-Niles? Maybe Doc has got a message. In this day and age, a player who lasts 10 years in a club deserves to be saluted, especially with all our ups and downs during that time. Personally I don’t think he’s in the twilight, and at 28 (29 next year) I think he’s got plenty in him left, several years in fact, though appreciate money talks. But ..... he hasn’t gone yet!!

When does the window close this season?

5th October Ivy


I guess it was always going to be on the cards that one of these teams would try and lure our stars away but I don't think many f us thought it would be Doc that they wanted. I agree he has been a magnificent servant since making his debut at Anfield when MM sent him on, but I don't think he would be up for another 50 game season next season with Nuno!!

In the pre-amble I overlooked the fact that Leeds United have already signed Helder Costa from us for £16m and we have signed some little known keeper from Villa on a free!!

As far as I know we are still looking at Maitland-Niles but our initial bid of £15m has been rejected and there are also claims he doesn't want to come to us!!

For me this could be one of the more interesting transfer windows. If we used, what, 21 players actually on the pitch last season? And one of them was Jordao who only made his League debut in the last 10 mins of the final match. Cutrone and Vallejo went in January, Doherty's move looks imminent, MGW is at Swansea for the season and Jonny is out for most, if not all of it. That cuts it down to 15 or 16 and two of them are goalkeepers.
I don't know what's happening with Maitland-Niles but we must be bringing 3 or 4 in surely and I saw a few days ago that Tim Spiers reckons we are still interested in Ruben Dias.

The season before the one just gone Docherty was arguably our player of the season so why would we want to sell him? I wouldnt describe a 28 year old as "entering the twilight years" of his career Lupine and as for young and hungry, we moved on from that nonsense years ago when Morgan left to excuse cheap and cheerful. We want talent , age is irrelevant

Just seen a report that we have put in a bid for Mexican Jesus Corona of Porto. I've only seen him play once, in the Portuguese Cup final against Benfica, but he looked good. If that's anything to go by I hope this is true.
Unfortunate surname mind you.

I was in a pub last night that had a sign on the wall saying "Anyone who asks for a Corona but hold the virus" will be barred!!

Understand your point of view Angry but the club philosophy does seem to be to purchase younger players and the natural evolvement of the squad does require a level of turnover and the older players will be sold while they have a “value”.

I think 16 million for Docherty is a terrible deal.. a player in his prime years part of one of the best defences in England (4th lowest goals against) for 16 million? The area we need to replace/upgrade is upfront and in midfield linking the midfield to the strikers rather than selling one of our best players for 16 million which wouldnt be enough to buy a top level championship player let alone premier league one. I'd start by transfer listing Jota , get Moutinho off the wage bill and bring in a couple of pacey attacking midfielders and at least one striker. I'd be happy to sell Neves over Docherty who woul d be worth far more but why do we need to sell anyone with the 4th lowest wage bill and smallest squad in the league?

Docs move to Spurs now confirmed.

Re: Wolves - The Transfers Saga Begins!!

We reportedly sold him for a fee of around 15 million ( maximum) with 10% to Bohemians leaving us with 13.5 million. In todays market he is worth at least double that- one of the best right backs in the league sold for a pittance in his prime years... it's a shocker for wolves whichever way you look at it.

I have to say I'm disappointed with the Transfer Window for us so far. We have let Norris, Costa and Doc go and no sign of us bringing anyone in before our game a week on Monday. I think Oscar Buur probably has the potential to step into Doc's shoes, but will need time to settle in as a regular. I have to wonder whether they are actually planning to promote from the Under 23's as well as looking for proven players.

I try no to worry or get sucked into many of the weird goings on associated with transfers or the window BUT we have 9 days to go to our kick off. Having read the various fan comments about Doc leaving and watching him walk away down to Spurs, other than wishing Doc all the very best for his service, I am significantly ‘glass very much more than half empty’ on the matter.

There have been arguments that Fosun and Nuno know what they’re doing, we’ve been here before (Cav, Douglas, Costa etc etc) but we start this season just weeks after the end of last season when the vast majority of us had identified we need more recruits not less ..... not forgetting Jonny .... we’re sorry he won’t be coming home (Fine Young Cannibals reference 😁, apologies) for quite a while yet.

As an aside, linked with investment and Fosun, I’ve previously mentioned about the current rather negative UK / China political climate / narrative ..... I now wonder what Jeff and the rest make of the latest news with the collapse of the premier league Chinese TV contract .... hardly good news to keep developing our ‘brand’ (I abide that phrase with a passion).

Only two signings so far and both out on loan. Given that we have been investing in youngsters for the past 3 years or so I am guessing that some of them will be asked to step up and prove their worth or what is the point!!
Also expecting one or two quality signings to give us the numbers to compete across the season and avoid tripping up due to injury etc.

Reports say that we are to sign 18 year old forward from Porto, Fabio Silva, for £35m.

Re: Wolves - The Transfers Saga Begins!!
Cheshire wolf 05 September, 2020 16:12
The Express and Star is quoted on Google saying an announcement should be made today of Wolves signing 18 year old Fabio Silva from Porto for £35m (40m Euros)!! Seemingly another deal done by Jorge Mendes which ensures his realistic price is met, despite a release clause of 125m Euros being in place!! He scored 8 goals with 6 assists in 33 games last season, which in itself would question the huge price tag!

Fabio Silva is a fantastic player, this is the sort of signing we need

Re: Wolves - The Transfers Saga Begins!!

Fabio Silva has been signed on a five year deal
