    They are hardly rejects are they? Have you looked at their release clauses at Benfica?

    The relationship between Mendes and Wolves/Fosun is symbiotic and it's simply not in his interest to undermine the efforts to get us promoted. If he keeps sending underperforming duds or identifying players in the wrong positions using your hypothetical eventually Fosun/Shi stop trusting and when/if Premier League money arrives he'll be on the outside looking in. Especially if he pisses on his investors shoes. Because of our current standing it adds an additional layer of security against a Valencia type scenario because he couldn't monopolise us now and by the time we are promoted Shi will have a greater feel for running a football club and Mendes' advisory role won't be as needed. Will he still play a role in transfers, probably, like a host of other resources at our disposal we'd be foolish not to utilise.

    Nah, give me quality permanent signings with REAL flair like Steve Corica and Seol.

    YTou watch the games, and i still have no idea how you can say that, Price, Coady, Edwards? in ball control alone it's a one horse race.

    As i have always said, the Mendes plan is to throw as much of what he has at Wolves and hope some of it sticks. Of the 13, how many do you still rate as serious players?

    The manage was a last ditch choice, (though i still like him, which is different from rating him) and the ruck of players that followed was a lottery at best.

    If Fosun are serious i won't be surprised at what happens in the next weeks, but have they got a footballing clue alongside the megabucks? we'll see.

    I'd peg four of our summer signings as not worth bothering with: Lonergan (who was pre-takeover anyway), Stearman, Gladon and John. All of the others are good signings.

    Mendes hasn't been involved in all of our signings either.

    Yeah I'd agree with that - and it's not like any of these have featured much either.

    Of the 13 how many are represented by Mendes? You obviously seem to know, please enlighten me.

    We've been here before, but of the Summer signings the following were Mendes'
    Costa (hit)
    Teix (hit)
    Silvio (jury out, one league game at right back)
    Cav (jury out, not given a run on the left)
    John (jury out, but looks like a favour signing)
    Zenga (enough said)
