Without digging too deep, I think the £250k of his own money donated to people of Wolvo sets him apart from Robbie Keane!

Fair enough, I could have worded it better.

My point is more to do with the tribal nature of football. Doesn't diminish what he did, but those days are gone and he beat us twice already this season

Can see Nuno rocking up at Newcastle personally. Just a feeling

I wish someone could make a video of his 'fat Bambi on ice' performances at the other end of the pitch

He was however mostly bad.

2-3 years of hardly ever playing, then being part of the worst Wolves defence I have ever seen as we tumbled into the third tier, then largely a bit part player (one who was frequently at fault for goals conceded when he did play) until we inexplicably sold our only left back and shoved him there instead, then a fat gormless shite in that position. Then we had to design a role explicitly for him and him only, which had multiple knock on effects elsewhere. What were we supposed to do, build the team around him until he retired?

He wasn't very good at all. Not to say he didn't have good moments but then a lot of rubbish players do along the way somewhere. Seyi was our top scorer one season, he was fucking crap.

Conor Coady was shit in midfield for us too.

We go on about the golden period of Nuno, the promotion and brilliant first couple of PL seasons, well Doherty was a big part of those seasons too, going on about how shit he was before that, or when he went to Spurs, is irrelevant. Is it only Nuno who ever qualifies for 'credit'?

And if you think the team suffered due to his specialist position, well that's on Nuno not him

Two of the big conundrums at the end of last season were whether Nuno and Rui had bad seasons or whether they were cooked. The last few months suggests Wolves did the correct thing with both
I agree we did with Rui but too soon to judge Nuno as its hard to think of a club he was less suited to than Spurs.

I agree Spurs was always about when they'd sack him. His contract was pretty much structured for them to bin him this coming Summer, but his body language, style of play and reluctance to change when things weren't working was enough to tell me that it would have been the same again at Wolves. He'll be back at some point and hopefully for him reenergised, but whatever it was that made him so flat and his team so dull clearly hasn't gone away.

It seems the dullness of his team's coincide with the appointment of Ian Cathro.

Could be just a coincidence.

Cathro joined us the summer after being promoted.

I don’t think anyone knows his role or influence at all to know how he helped shape our football under Nuno. Not sure why people are so keen/quick to point to him as a negative.
