    Fosun have made mistakes on playing side. And ultimately that's the most important part.

    However, off the pitch, I genuinely believe they have improved the club AND listened to fans.

    Dalrymple has been clear and as open as his job allows. They've tried the season ticket promotion. They're launching a new website. Putting work into the match day season that -though some like and some don't- is a sign of trying to modernize and improve the club. They've listened to the people who want screens (though I expect that's also as an FFP revenue stream.)

    They've made mistakes. But I've seen more intent to improve the club in one season under Fosun than in the last five seasons under Morgan. Some of the criticism of Fosun has been way over the top.

    I fully agree that it has been a poor season and we have been woeful at times.

    You could argue that we would have been better off getting 4 solid £5m Championship players instead of Costa and Cav and that may well of been the case. But then people would have argued that Fosun weren't stumping up the big cash for the very best players.

    I am fine adding 2-3 players of real quality per window, ok it might take longer but hopefully we will have a pretty special side at the end of it rather than just a good one.

    Just to pick up on your first sentence about Fosun, what rubbish have they spouted?

    I think it's to early to start the FOSUN out cries. When they came they said they planned for the Premier League in 3 years, there is two years left for that. If by Christmas we're still playing carp then I'll be on the "OUT" bandwagon with you all.

    I don't really see why people are saying FOSUN out.. end of the day they have been here technically five minutes and they were willing to pump money into the team with Cavs and Costa so i don't see the problem really? Just need to give them some time.

    Well said that man

    I can't believe the stick Fosun are getting. People need to take a look at the owners some other clubs have and remember how things were just a year ago under Morgan and Moxey. Give them a chance fgs, they are making changes and improvements and I'm glad they're here

    Read the first statement they released when they took over. It's almost embarrassing,

    Can't be arsed to search, I'm sure you could enlighten me. But if it's anything about trying to push this club forward with significant investment then surely the only thing embarrassing is people's negative reaction to an attempt to change this club for the better whilst spending £27m on players in the process?

    More top 5 club in the world.

    Nobody is moaning about the investment it's the way the club is ran. Take your gold tinted glasses off and just look at the mess, would you want work for people like this?

    The more they carry on like this the less quality managers will be interested in working at Wolves.

    They took over a mess left from the previous regime, had no time to sort it out before the season kicked off and how do you know the ins and outs of how the club is ran to speak so certainly of it?

    Your last statement indicates that it's the managerial situation though, "the less quality managers will be interested in Wolves". Are you for real? Do you pay attention to football anywhere other than Molineux? There are a whole host of very big clubs around Europe and indeed in the UK that have been no more than short stopovers on the managerial merry go round for years, yet they still attract and then fire top managers time after time. What exactly would make us different to them? What makes you think we'll end up with a poor manager? The opportunity here is HUGE, and a blind man can see that

    I didn't know Johnny Phillips is a Wolves fan. Good article that, seems like he can actually see the bigger picture.

    That's a very interesting article by Johnny Phillips.
    It's going to take time for us to get used to change but we are all going to have to get used to it.
    For all my whinging, I'm still confident we are going to be successful. When FOSUN do announce the new head coach (and I'm glad they are taking there time) all I ask as a supporter is a bit of clarification on whose doing what regarding recruitment (Mendes, Thelwell) and the direction the club is going in.

    We all want clarification, we're just not going to get it yet, may never completely get it. But who we sign this summer is bound to give an indication even if the club make it somewhat obscure.

    I'm with you though, taking their time on this next appointment and getting it right is absolutely vital. It's clear Mendes will have some input in bringing players in as Fosun try to implement this system, and the next head coach - which is what he'll be - and us fans, need to be on board with that.
