We lose a goal scorer, and a superb crosser of the ball. I do hope we'll get a replacement that can do the same. Not look like he can on YouTube, but actually do it...... like Barry.

Douglas’ set pieces masked some of his deficiencies in open play and he is absolutely someone that can be replaced. He was fantastic for us and I would wish him well but this is how it’s going to be now for Wolves. Upgrade players on a regular basis to continue improving.

Nuno must see something in Giles and Vinagre to be able to backup the spot if we are shipping him out though. All signs point to Jonny Castro being the replacement from a starting perspective though.

Rumours that Wolves are also considering two English options for the left wing back slot.

I wonder how Luke Shaw is doing this preseason. He could do with a fresh start but I’ve lost touch with his career since injuries took their toll.

Barry Douglas is one of those that despite only spending one season with us, wherever he goes on to play, he will always be Wolves.

I don't get that feeling about many players. Never had it for Kevin Doyle for instance, even though he did very well for us in his first couple of years.

I may need to go into mourning if/when this happens :cry: He was a massive part of one of the best seasons I’ve ever known as a Wolves fan. He’ll always have a special place in my heart. He’ll be a superb signing for Leeds.

Find this a strange one. Did great for us and really sad to see him go. My sons favourite player from last season so sentiment comes in to it.
Given what he offers I'm surprised he's not going to another premiership team from his perspective.
Feel sorry if we lose him and Cav- both made a great contribution to a great season and shame they missing their moment in the Prem with us having earned it.
Nuno knows best obviously but still...

I agree, an actual left footed left back was a bit of a rarity for us before his arrival, well any left back was, so when we signed Baz I was quite pleased and will be sad to see him go, but it had to happen really and the 5/6 million quoted fee is too good to turn down.

I'll miss those whipped in dead balls, so dangerous

Bazza made a massive contribution with his brilliant wand of a left foot. Good luck at your new club Barry. You will do well there and the fans will love you.

Best left back since "Squeak" Derek Parkin.
Loved watching Douglas play, always thought he would score or assist when he took set pieces.
Leeds have signed a great Championship player, they will love him.
Good Luck and thanks for the memories!

The reported £3m fee rubs salt in the wounds. I really hope Nuno has another wingback lined up.

5 goals and 14 assists last year; he often got us out of sticky situations with his dead ball ability when we weren’t playing all that well. Just watched the highlights of Bristol City away - a fine example of his worth.

Really can’t understand why we aren’t keeping him, even if only a backup to Jonny.

He does only have 1 year left on his contract, so maybe they didnt feel confident in offering him and extension and didnt want to lose him for nothing at the end of the season.

Sad to see him go but you only need to go back as far as the Afobe deal to realise that Wolves are not taking any passengers onboard for their current journey, and i have total faith that they are making the right decisions.

Lets hope we can look back at the end of the season and still say that..

I think the coach is looking for more dynamism in the final third with the wing backs expected to go past players then produce quality.

Thanks Barry, you were excellent.

Nuno must have another wing back in mind, surely? Why lose a guy who was massively instrumental in saving so many games for us last season? Maybe Nuno thinks he will get torn apart defensively by quality Premier opposition..??? OK, only one year left on his deal but hey ho, let him have a go at the Prem and see how he gets on. He'll not get that chance now, unless Leeds get promoted....

He was brilliant with dead ball.

But I can see the sense. His defensive abilities were 'not proven', and there were many games where I just wanted him to attack the full back - but he rarely did.

HUGE thanks for all the joy he brought last year, but better he do it again for someone else next year than sit on a subs bench....

Picked up to do a job. Job done. Many thanks to Barry, For the club to make a profit on top of using his skill set so well, is so simply not Wolves. Boy have we changed in such a short space of time

How good are we gonna be if we can get rid of a player like Bazza? only time will tell. For some it will be three games at most before they retire to air their angst on Sohshul Meedya. :lol:

On the contrary. it may only be three games before they were completely correct and court your admiration.

The reason he left, so I've heard, is that there was a bust-up between him and Nuno on the summer tour. I don't know what it was about but the chap next to me yesterday told me and when I mentioned it on the train back home a couple of guys had said that they'd heard the rumour as well. It doesn't make it true, I recognise, but Jonny Castro is a great replacement...although it would be good to have someone who can take a decent corner.

Rumour was the bust-up was down to Bazza wetting his newborns yed, during pre-season, and Nuno has a zero alcohol policy. Kinda sad if true, but if that's the level of Nuno's professionalism, then so be it.

Ta Dave. Interesting stuff.

You've probably seen the pics of Afobe's floozie allegedly when on club duty. Would you? :shock: :mrgreen: Wolves being disrespectful to him whilst his wife was expecting my arse!

Afobe's antics are an embarrassment, but I guess it shows that despite having all the money in the world, pro footballers cannot live a normal life. It's a shame in a way, as I imagine he would have put a couple off those 30 chances away yesterday.

All very interesting, Dave, but would you, though? Would you have put the chance away if she'd offered? :mrgreen:

Rhetorical question?

I get the impression Embers would shag a hole in the fence given half a chance
