I really hope I'm wrong but until the back end of last season when the wheels came off, were we punching above our class? I reading this morning that wolves are after Rhodes and Oliviera in 20mill moves! We cannot compete financially and with the parachute payments for those relagated it's almost like we are starting on minus 25 again, the clubs you'd expect to be challenging are by far and away much stronger in the transfer market. Hope I'm wrong but I don't expect top 6 or promotion any time too soon due to the handicapping system and a few others having the buying power they have. It kills me to admit that.

Money isn't everything. its how you spend it. wolves to me do look strong and i think they are potential champions. I do think we could struggle to make the playoffs, we seem to be stronger up front but weaker at the back. Maybe in Jan or next summer we will strengthen that area to push forward

Money doesn't always buy success. Have patience and trust when the team pulls together we will start winning games a little more easily. Preston beat Wednesday last week so they aren't a bad team.

Don't agree DL. Money spent doesn't always equate to quality and performance on the field, look at Leicester winning the Premier and Huddersfield going up last year, lots of sides outspending those. Our players and management team didn't perform when they needed to after showing that they could earlier in the season, don't think that was down to the money spent on them. In Wood we have a player being valued at close to 20 million, Alioski, Saiz and Hernandez are classy players for this division. The defence still needs strengthening and the team and manager are still getting used to working together. Let's see how we do against Fulham. don't give up yet!

And if Wolves don't go up, they will go bust. I don't want us to be in that position ever again.

Just read sky sports transfer page on this, states Wolves are looking at a way around the ffp rules to sign Rhodes etc . If this is the case I hope other sides do not let this rest as it's about time certain teams with money where made to abide by the rules .

I do hope so dog. the implications should also not be a fine (what's the point of that, as the issue is they spend to much anyway) or a transfer ban in a couple of windows, giving them opportunity to spend more to cover their asses in the preceding windows! The punishment should be points deduction, pure and simple. the only thing which actually would hurt them! 😡

The problem is the owner will just create a fake company to sponsor them for the sum of say £50m so they pass ffp. Chansiri at the Wendies has done the same. The EFL should be clamping down on this, but I guess they won't care unless we do it.

13 Aug 2017 13:07:52
SG perhaps that's why mass bought Brescia? they'll sponsor us for £100m?

If wolves have already overspent and we aren't anywhere near the summer window shutting, then aren't they screwed for the rest of the season, including the the winter window?

13 Aug 2017 14:06:49
Surly dealing with matters once they have occurred is sort of shutting the gate when the horse has gone around the field twice. Clubs must have a good idea of what they expect there financial situation to roughly be yr to yr. I believe I'm correct in stating that other clubs have breathed the fpr and not been punished . Nothing against Wolves but they must have spent there budget and then some, not to mention the wage bill .

Cura and Spanish hit the nail. Don't get me wrong you can buy a great team, Man City for example, but it can also be done by fantastic recruitment, scouting and connections. Look at Vardy and Dele Alli and where they came from, you can get some absolute gems for a reasonable price, perhaps allioski and saiz might turn out to be just that?
