Don't normally hear much of the show but heard a good one on WM phone in last night last night when a Villa fan called them "Bilston Barcelona"

Tickled me anyway

Every dog has its day...!

These mongrels have a bit of pedigree at the moment but everything goes full circle for everyone outside of the top 6...just look at Villa - who I believe were once champions of Europe...?

Long winded way of saying that Fosun and Mendes are pushing the boundaries and exploiting loopholes, but no-one Players / clubs / Fosun / Mendes will comment unsurprisingly

They're doing better than I had hoped  ;)  but they're not doing anything Hodgson and Clarke didn't do on a shoestring by comparison.

I think we need to prepare ourselves for them winning something in the next few years, be that the FA cup, League cup or even, god forbid the Europa league.

They won't get top 4, like some of their fans have deluded themselves is part of Fosun's long term plan, however they currently sit in the last European place and I can't see them being caught. They are a Bristol City away from their first FA cup quarter final in years as well.

I'm going to hate it as a gloating Wolves fan is nearly as bad as the "i'm really hard and will attack random fans" type, but if we prepare now, it will be easier to take once the inevitable happens.

Possibly, but probably not. Look at the resources Spurs have and how many trophies have they won in the last 25 years? Wolves will do well enough in the Prem as long as they have their current manager, who is doing an excellent job due to his knowledge of the Portuguese league helping him to get his signings spot on. However when he moves on (it will happen eventually) it could all go tits up quite quickly, regardless of how much money they are willing to splash on oversea's players.

Dont like to admit it but i was wrong about them, i thought they would struggle more than they have but fair play they are cruising and look a really good team.

I have to confess i do like watching the way they play, they seem to be better against the better sides because they let them play, the lower sides get in their faces, thats why they struggled with Shrewsbury even and i imagine if Bristol City play a proper team in the 5th round, they will give Wolves a good game.

It is good a team has gone up and is taking the game to teams instead of trying to grind out points, the wins they have had arent luck, the Wolves are a good side, The test will come next season when teams will not let them play like they do now, the big boys and even the likes of West Ham and Everton will think twice about letting Wolves do what they have this season.

I do think Neves seems to be their key man, he looks absolute quality, i expect him to move in the summer though and Fosun / Mendes start to get their first returns on their investment. They have done well, brought in a couple of big experienced players who have raised the standard (Moutinho looks good) the issue they will have is finding another Neves, players that good dont play for lesser clubs for too long, they have enough other good players for now but i imagine the likes of Jota and Jonny will be others who after a good season or two will be sold on for big profit.

If Fosun turn down big money bids then i will believe the hype that they are here for the long term and do want to be a major football force at whatever it costs but i do think Mendes better younger players will start to be sold on and then its whether Mendes other players who he brings in to replace them are upto the same standard to fit in straight away.
 
I am glad we havent got them in the cup as i think they would tear us a new one, when you go back 2 years ago we had already cemented our place in the premier league and were challenging for 7th (shocking three months end to the season meant we finished 10th) Wolves were making up the numbers in the championship and look at the two teams now and thats how quick football can change.

Thats why if i was Dingle i would enjoy this whilst it lasts, its great for their fans, personally i think Fosun arent Wolves fans and so they are here to make money and have a system that right now allows them to do that and is working, the moment that stops they will be on their way, its how much time they do stay and if they leave a suistanable legacy for whoever owns them next.

A truly sickening read below when you consider the relative state of our club in comparison now.... It's genuinely frustrating to see them doing so well when only a few season ago they were languishing in League 1 and staring at the abyss.

Whether it happens or not is another thing entirely of course and it remains to be seen on whether this venture eventually implodes or not, but for their fans at the moment to hear the plans for the club, their aims, ground redevelopment etc. it really does grate on me. Particularly when you consider our own owner's business; not personal; wealth was generated by the construction industry.

I'm mindful that may have been different had we stayed up last season and continued with the greed league money to potentially look at stadium or area regeneration plans, but given the pattern of communication and interest; or lack thereof; from our owner to date, I wouldn't hold my breath.

https://www.skysports.com/football/news/22712/11633506/wolves-plans-to-redevelop-molineux-explained-by-laurie-dalrymple-and-jeff-shi

A few key extracts below:

"We see a benchmark that this club could grow to a 45,000-50,000 capacity in the medium to long term"

"The club has been on an upward trajectory on the pitch for the past eighteen months. The plan, now, is to build on the success of the playing squad by transforming Molineux into a centre piece for the city as a whole.

"We want this to be a multi-purpose, multi-functional venue and destination for people to come," Dalrymple adds. "Not just from Wolverhampton; from the Black Country and wider Midlands area.

"We are developing at the same time as other areas in the city are developing, so if everything happens in unison then this can become a really exciting place to visit and a really exciting place to be.

"We really want the football club and Molineux as a venue to be the focal point of all of that.""

Do note that Fosun are in a completely different league in comparison to our investor. One has piles of cash, the other doesn't.

I wouldn't say they were languishing in league 1 - they got relegated and smashed it straight away.

The other thing is because they were a larger championship team at a low ebb, they became a more attractive proposition for investment. Fosun have had to invest less to buy Wolves and get them promotion than they would have to buy us and maintain our league position over the same length of time.

ones got an owner with ambition, we've got Lai!
even the years we were streets ahead of them we had no ambition to grow the club.
wonder if they'll stop and think ( what if we don't sell every seat every game ).
