I'm 50/50 on him, I guess it depends what our board consider a war chest to move up a level...

I think there is a good old fashioned No.9 in him, and I still believe a No.9 like him has a place in football still. Maybe not starting 11, but certainly a plan B.

You were one of the ones who said the same about Raul Jimenez. Look who's up front for the team currently sat in 7th...

I would take mitrovic as a replacement for perez and carroll.
Gomez for arnie and Hernandez

mitrovic has 10 goals more than our strikers playing in a poor team. around 24 years old so we would have a resale value if it doesn't work out. a yes from me.

Gomez mitrovic and one other is all we need upfront.

sort the midfield out and the full backs

He won't do no-one near as well next season and Wolves key is that midfield three is as a strong as 95% of midfield in the league, Neves, Moutinho, Dendoncker is delightful and balanced, Moutinho is a joy to behold for a striker.

If Boro don't win at the weekend, expect Pullis to go and then god knows what happens to Hugill

Gomez and Mitrovic would set us back at least £50 million, then a third forward, and only then do we focus on midfield and fullback?

Put the crystal ball down and have a look at what he and his team have done this season. Jimenez - 12 league goals + 8 assists and they're sat in 7th. You can't argue with that.

Ole will fail at Manchester United, he isn't a good enough tactician and Pogba will revert to normal form after a massive purple patch

I don't get the Wolves love in, it's basically a lot of players on massive wages or dodgy connections. People rave Neves but Moutinho is the utter class superstar in that team, only has a year or two left but he is utter mustard, was class at Porto, Monaco, Lisborn and Portugal
I think you'll find alot of our players are on much higher wages than the Wolves ones ,but don't let facts get in the way of a good story eh.
Its not a love in for "Wolves" as such, just that a few of us on here knew Wolves had a better team/squad of players at the beginning of the season than us.

Neves is an outstanding midfielder as well, rightly raved about.

I think the point with wolves is that the media seem happy to gloss over all the dodgy ownership and transfer shenanigans going on. Most of yhe players only ended up there because Jorge Mendes is pulling the strings behind the scenes

He is quality, I am hoping Man C go and buy him and not Rice..

Bayern vs Heidenheim been one of the madest games ever, Bayern went 4-2 up with 10 men, now scored three unanswered to be winning 5-4 a few minutes left, Kovac be under pressure even more after this

surely instead of this duette at their opening ceremony they should have had the 'you just got kaned' lads sing.

And where's their London cab driving round the pitch. Shameful.

Spurs would probably be ahead if Son and Eriksen weren't trying so hard to be the first to score there.

I’d love Cheik Kouyate to do the London/new Tottenham Stadium first official goalscorer double!

I know it's sad but I really want Palace and Chelsea to both win tonight.
Spurs start life in their new home by dropping out of he top 4.

I can't get my head around how there are so many empty seats at the Etihad.

They don't know how lucky they are, what more could they possibly want?

Alli with a massive clear as day dive while on a booking, should be off the pitch, no excuse for the official at all, totally bottled it, disgusting
