Callum Wilson when he was at Coventry, but who did we go for instead?
Leon ****ing Clarke
This thread is a no brainer......surely we all wanted the same thing...
All the greats......
.( you need names?.......your kidding, right?)
For the last two seasons another top notch striker!!
Dalian Atkinson. Even wrote to the club and told them to do it before he broke into the Ipswich team. Best player I’ve had the pleasure of playing with and against. Unstoppable if he wanted to play ( and that was his problem).
I'm sure there was a rumour he was a Wolves fan as a kid so I thought he may come in the twilight of his career, a la Denis Irwin
Don’t know a player, but every time a manager was sacked I wanted Warnock.
Here comes the slating,,,,,,
Actually, for the situation we were in for most of the last 30 years pre-Nuno, we could have done (and did) a LOT worse than give Colin the job...
To play alongside Frankie Munro.
Would have been the missing piece of the jigsaw puzzle.
I remember pre Munro wanting Mike England from Blackburn.
Abraham was at Swansea last season and didn't play in the 3-3.
Allan Neilson (spurs)
Came on loan around early 00’s and was magnificent, one best playmakers I’ve seen at the club and eye for goal.
Unfortuently he did so well, Watford who were relegated or promoted took him from beneath us.
Tom Huddlestone (derby)
Another who came on loan and for very brief stint but the lad oozed quality and was evident on the eye, pretty much all his career until last two or so seasons I’d taken him at any point if available
Andy Carroll (Newcastle/Liverpool)
We wouldn’t had gotten him at this period but he literally beasted us for 3/4 games in a row, unfortuently the lad got judged next to his 35m price tag, but I’ve never seen anyone hold up the ball and win every header how he did vs us at molineux and he either got a brace or hatrick on top - unfortuently his career is now blighted with injuries! But someone who been always judged vs 35m sale rather than his abilities and strengths
David Johnson (forest), Marcus Stewart (Ipswich) & Andy Booth (Huddersfield)
All bagged for fun late 90s at our level
Re Carroll the fact he has been a tool in his personal life in the past didn't help
Kenny Dalglish....circa 1972/3
Rodney Marsh would have been entertaining.
I am another one for Kevin Philips, a truly instinctive striker, exactly what we need now in fact, and he always enjoyed scoring at Molineux we just needed to point him in the other direction.
Mark Hughes him and Bully defenders nightmare
Realistic - Always liked Shefki Kuqi, who seemed to score every time he played us.
Fantasy - Alan Shearer. Can you imagine Bully and Shearer up top!?
Been a top player in Europe for last 10 years. A beautiful footballer
Would be a dream if we could ever sign him
Once upon a time, Jim Melrose.
Used to go with a mate to Chesterfield and a young attacker called Kevin Davies was one I thought we should get (before Bolton turned him into a battering ram he was a skilful winger!) as well as a young Jimmy Bullard at Wigan who was head and shoulders the best player on the pitch.
Roy (of the Rovers)
He would have had to have changed his name to Woy though.
Loved Andy Booth.
I'll tell you a few others who were great at our level -
Mike Sheron (Stoke)
Andy Payton (Huddersfield)
Peter Thorne (Swindon/Stoke)
Kevin Horlock (Swindon)
Ty Gooden (Gillingham)
Alan McLaughlin (Portsmouth)
Jimmy Carter (Portsmouth)
Paul walsh. Imagine him and Bully up front
Kevin Phillips. Pain in the **** to us but an outrageously good player.
Remember watching him in the Albion reserves circa 1986 and I vividly remember thinking there was a proper goalscorer there, albeit a rough diamond at the time.
Imagine my delight when we signed him and the rest, as they say, is history.
I wish we didn't sign Darren Ferguson
What’s that smell, is it cows? Sheep? Nah, it’s bull****.
Pablos Wolverhampton. The 90s. Atkinson. Yorke and Mark Rankine are in. (You would not ****ing believe how fit the bird with Yorke was) anywas. Atkinson on his way to the bog. My mate shouts’oi. Villa!’ Atkinson turns round givin it the big yehhhh mannn want my autogragh? My mate goes ‘ya foookin ****er!’
I know it’s childish and immature. But it was proper funny at the time.
Every time this thread comes up I just dream of Dzeko I loved him at City and let's face it Roma are 6th in Serie A. I would say Roma is currently a like for like swap for Wolves.. Gerrimin! Might cost 20-25m but he could be the focal point we need with Raul and Jota either side and a bench of Costa,Cav and Adama.
Surely we could get a couple of quid at end of Hause, Baath and Bonatinis loans to pay towards it.
Juan Esnaider, just to have livened up the boring early 00s.
I'm certain we tried to sign Rivaldo in the 03/04 season. What a signing that would have been!
Would like to have seen Duncan Mackenzie & Frank Worthington In wolves Shirts
Before he went to Milan? Pretty sure this isn't true. One of the greatest of his generation.
Took the words out of my mouth
No, I believe it was directly after Milan. I seem to remember him being released so we tried to get him on a free. Anybody else remember this?
Don Goodman. I was driving up the M6 when news came over the radio that Taylor had signed him. If I hadn't been in my car I'd have jumped for joy.
It was Emerson I believe. Him and Dino Baggio and both turned us down.
Ole Gunnar Solksjaer was a McGhee target (apparently) when he was still at Molde?
I remember Jones mentioned we'd thrown our hat into the ring - if you don't ask you don't get kinda thing
Ronny Jonssen too wasn’t it?
I always wanted Wolves to sign Tony Daley. I remembered him tearing us to shreds in the Stan Cullis game for Villa and I’ve been a fan of a pacey winger since the Tim Steele days. I was convinced he would be unbelievable for us. I was wrong.
To be fair when he came here he was always broken...
When Wolves were linked with Rene Van Der Kerkoff and Johnny Rep who were mainstays of the great Dutch sides of the 1970's and Michel Platini who before he got his snout in the FIFA trough was a wonderful midfield player.
