I reckon Nuno told Doherty what he could do with his gloves and tights, although I don't know what Portuguese for "pussy" is.

No probs. I accumulated the info as it happened (I thought Porto was Bonatini's parent club but apparently not) and have it on my home page. It keeps me informed as I can't remember all those details off by heart either. 8)

Its basically looking to improve on what prevented Wolves becoming a good side in previous decades.

You either coach to improve on what was a very one dimensional team or you buy in better talent.

It was evident in the early seventies that Wolves had two players at the back whose first touch was not good enough.
Add to that a strike force that was ever reliant on keeping John Richards fit.

John Richards suffered and played in pain because the manager had little in the way of back up plan.

Just take the summer of 1972, it was an opportunity to build up the squad which was well short on numbers.

There was an opportunity to sign both Frank Worthington and Dennis Rofe.

Both would have allowed different options.

Derek Parkin could have switched to his better side and probably played a hundred times for England.

Worthington would have helped the development of more football in the opponents half, he was very much in the Léo Bonatini mould.

Coady was Uddersfield's player of the year before coming to us. He was recognised in a team on the way up as having the X-factor. He was brought crashing to earth by a club then managed by successive managers adept at polishing diamonds into turds rather than the other way around.

God bless Nuno.

:D

But back to the Gingo's post, and more and more we see how our previous owners, and ultimately, Jez Moxey, held this club back, slowly degrading it. I was listening to an ex-pro yesterday, on the radio, can't recall who, but he said that for a club to be successful, it needs to be run properly, from the top, with enthusiasm and ambition. So true. Still, look at poor Blackburn...

Doc is the Man! and don't you forget it.

i always saw a decent footballer in him (in a manner of speaking...) i'm glad Nuno does too

Still wouldn't play him in a 4 man defence, not such of a problem in our formation

I would, but i see what you're saying.

can go missing occasionally in the pursuit of the goal. In this formation the team tends to cover each other. not so much in a back 4

I thought Matt Doherty was remarkable against Fulham when you consider the lack of recovery time for the lad in the previous 6 days.
Fabulous performance.

Coady and Doherty work in our current formation. One of the reason I advocated for our current formation, it fits our players.

I'm sure I saw him queueing up outside Merry Hill Post Office this morning, after I'd come back from the Dentist! I hope he's not signing on... Chris, can you confirm if he lives down our way, Finchfield or Castlecroft?

I bumped into Mick McCarthy in the Co-Op a few years back. He bought a couple of bottles of wine.

I cannot confirm whether the Doc lives down our way though?
