  1. Your thoughts on Wolves' transfer windowpublished at 17:39 24 January

    There's one week to go until the transfer window closes and we've been asking for your thoughts on Wolves so far - who should Bruno Lage buy, sell or keep?

    Here are some of your views so far:

    Sachin: I think we should sign Renato Sanches as he could play on the left/right/centre/centre attacking midfield. I think we have ben needing this type of player.

    Tom: To let Traore go for anything under £30m would be an outrage, especially to a Premier League rival.

    Robert: Wolves are good at defending and have a great team spirit. What is painfully evident is that they need strikers! The goals for is pathetic so they need to buy a couple of good strikers now.

    Stuart: I have long admired Divock Origi at Liverpool and if Traore is to move on then I think Wolves should try there for a replacement. But there is a need for reinforcements among the centre-halves. Phil Jones or Eric Bailey at Manchester United could make good squad players for cover there.

    Do you want to see some movement before the window closes? Have your say

  2. Wolves fans can look forward to more entertainmentpublished at 10:00 24 January

    Aside from any who had left their car on a parking meter and cut it a bit fine on the timing, Saturday was another grand day out for Wolves’ away supporters. Not only do they have a team to follow which is exceeding most expectations for this season, but they are now often being treated to some high-quality goals as well.

    At Brentford there was some more evidence of the gradual shift in approach that Bruno Lage has been speaking of recently. ‘Consistency, personality, talent’ was the three-word slogan he first mentioned a couple of weeks ago, inviting the Wolves players to trust their considerable ability and take more risks. This seems to be most obviously evident in midfield, where Joao Moutinho and Ruben Neves are more often to be found pushing forward, into the spaces from where both scored on Saturday.

    The extra attacking support was all the more necessary on Saturday given the unexpected absence of Raul Jimenez, but it is an odd quirk of this season that Wolves have won all three League games they have started without their natural attack-leader.

    It could be argued on the evidence of the last two matches that Wolves have traded a little of their defensive security for a more potent attacking threat, but after coming out on top in both, they should be confident, and Wolves fans can look forward to more entertainment.

    A footnote: Adama Traore’s goal at the very end didn’t stand after a VAR check, but the affection shown in the celebrations before the screens turned purple was impossible to erase, and sparked a bit of discussion. What could that long hug Lage gave Traore mean? ‘Thanks for everything, goodbye?’ ‘Please don’t go, we all adore you?’ ‘I’m so happy you’re staying?’

    Quite possibly none of the above, but that’s the transfer window: soap opera for football fans. Tune in next week.

    • Wolves have started a calendar year with three consecutive league victories for the first time since 1994.

    • Only Watford (8) have lost more Premier League home games than Brentford this season (7).

    • Wolves have shipped just five goals in the first half of Premier League games so far this season, with the Midlands side not conceding in the opening 45 minutes in any of their last 14 matches in the competition.

    • Joao Moutinho has scored more than once in a single top-flight league campaign for the first time since 2016-17 with Monaco (2), while his strike today for Wolves was his first Premier League goal from inside the box.

    • Ivan Toney has scored twice as many Premier League goals as any other Brentford player this season (6), while he’s also become the first player to score in consecutive top-flight appearances at Brentford Community Stadium.

    Matthew Howarth, BBC Sport

    Wolves continued their excellent recent form with an impressive win at Brentford, but their 2-1 victory will be remembered for matters off the pitch - or above it.

    The drone that appeared over Brentford Community Stadium, coupled with a nasty clash of heads involving Mathias Jensen and Rico Henry, resulted in 19 minutes of stoppage time being added at the end of the first half.

    There was even a brief delay at the beginning of the second when referee Peter Bankes was struggling to get his communication device to work, with Brentford fans singing “this is embarrassing” as they waited for play to resume.

    When it did, Wolves were too hot for the Bees to handle. Joao Moutinho’s opener was richly deserved, but Ivan Toney’s equaliser - which came virtually out of nothing - threatened to earn the hosts an unlikely point.

    However, the magnificent Ruben Neves sealed Wolves’ fourth win in five league games with a typically classy finish.

    Brentford, who had boss Thomas Frank sent off after full-time, remain eight points clear of the bottom three but risk becoming embroiled in a relegation scrap unless they can arrest their slump in form.

  6. Brentford 1-2 Wolves: Lage reactionpublished at 18:29 22 January

    Wolves manager Bruno Lage, speaking to Match of the Day: "Strange things today, but most importantly was that we came with personality, we came with consistency. It was a very good start of the year, three wins in the Premier League and one win in the [FA] Cup."

    On the drone: "They tried to understand what happened, tried to find the man who controlled the drone, then we came inside and talked a little bit about the game. Sometimes we don’t have that time during the game to chat and we talked a little bit.

    "I think it was a strange first half - too many stops - but I think in the second half, we started very well. We were the better team in the second half, we scored early, we controlled the game."

  9. All eyes on Traore as Wolves look to avoid another sting from the Beespublished at 18:48 21 January

    Mike Taylor, BBC Radio WM

    Even during the transfer window, now and then the odd match comes along by way of a distraction from the gossip. Alas for this potentially very entertaining fixture, it has been to some degree overshadowed at the Wolves end by the Adama Traore-to-Tottenham saga seemingly coming to a head at last.

    This time it does have something of an end-of-the-boxset feel about it, but that was the case for a while in the summer as well, and in the end there was another series. If he doesn’t get off the bus at Brentford on Saturday, stand by, but note that the window still has more than a week to run.

    Bruno Lage, though, spoke warmly of Traore’s focus and professionalism at his press conference, and his team will need those qualities against Brentford, who have stretched quite a few of the sides above them. They were more than a match for Wolves back at Molineux in September, when Ivan Toney and Bryan Mbuemo overwhelmed the Wolves defence in a way no other opponent has quite matched this season.

    Things have changed a little since then, however, as Wolves have settled into the Lage way; Aston Villa and Crystal Palace are the only other teams so far this season to emulate Brentford by scoring twice against Wolves, who are starting to play with greater confidence.

    Again, Lage has encouraged his team to play with “personality”, as well as strive to be more consistent.  There has been quite a bit of that on show recently, in their stirring performance at Old Trafford and last Saturday’s enjoyable scrap with Southampton. They did miss Romain Saiss, but not as much as they could have done due to an unexpected but encouraging debut for Toti Gomes, recalled from Grasshoppers Zurich and plunged into the Premier League at short-ish notice.

    Ruben Neves’ controlling influence was arguably missed a little more, but he is available again after his Covid absence. Brentford may well come aggressively at Wolves, having had some joy with the same approach earlier in the season, but Lage is inviting Wolves to trust in their sound base and roll the dice themselves a little. This could be fun.

  10. Lawro's predictions: Brentford v Wolvespublished at 18:00 21 January

    Mark Lawrenson takes on singer and Chelsea fan Call Me Loop in the latest round of Premier League predictions.

    Mark Lawrenson banner

    Lawro's prediction: 0-1

    Brentford are still creating chances but they haven't been scoring as many recently, and they have started letting in a lot of goals - 10 in their past three games to be exact.

    In contrast, Wolves are going great at the moment, and they have got the top six in their sights.

    We know how good Wolves are defensively and, although they don't score lots of goals, they don't concede many either - only 15 in 20 games so far. Manchester City are the only top-flight team with a better record than that at the back.

    Call Me Loop's prediction: I am not going to lie, my knowledge of Brentford and Wolves is not great, but looking at their last few matches Wolves are hard to beat and Brentford are always conceding. 0-3

  11. Brentford v Wolves: Team newspublished at 17:12 21 January

    Brentford head coach Thomas Frank can select from an unchanged squad.

    Frank Onyeka remains on Africa Cup of Nations duty, while the game comes too soon for the club's injured players.

    Ruben Neves, who tested positive for Covid-19 last week, is available for Wolves and new signing Chiquinho could also be involved.

    Romain Saiss is on international duty and Hwang Hee-chan, Willy Boly, Marcal, Pedro Neto, Yerson Mosquera and Jonny are still injured.

    Should the Bees make changes from the loss to Manchester United?

    Is there a place for Neves in your Wolves XI?

  12. Lage 'will protect his players' amid Traore interestpublished at 14:35 21 January

    Adama Traore is challenged by Tottenham's Ben DaviesImage source, Getty Images

    Wolves boss Bruno Lage "doesn't know" how much Spurs offered for winger Adama Traore, but insists he places a high value on all of his players.

    "I don't really know how much they offered - I don't really know if they did any offer," he said. "I don't talk about money.

    "But I can see we have a top player with us, and we believe a lot in Adama. He is a lovely guy and I'm happy with him."

    Traore scored his first goal of the season against Southampton last Saturday but has one year left on his contract and has been heavily linked with a move to Antonio Conte's side in this window.

    "Sometimes it's about business," Lage said. "Remember how much Tottenham protected Harry Kane earlier this season to stay with them?

    "I will protect my players because, for me, their value is very high."

  13. Lage on Traore, Chiquinho and a week offpublished at 14:20 21 January

    Mike Taylor, BBC Radio WM

    Bruno Lage has been speaking to the media before Wolves’ game at Brentford on Saturday.

    Here are the key lines from his news conference:

    • Tottenham’s reported £15m offer for Adama Traore has not affected the player’s attitude in training: “I don’t see any difference in his behaviour, his mentality or the way he works. I’m happy with him. He’s focused and he’s ready [to play].”

    • New signing Chiquinho is exactly the type of player Wolves are keen to sign: “He is someone the club has followed for a year – a player for the present and for the future. We need to understand which players will benefit the strong team we want.”

    • On Jonny’s return to fitness: “He needs to win confidence and be comfortable. His first step is to train with the team and I am very happy we have one more player in the squad.”

    • Wolves have no game next weekend and the players will have a rest: “I will give some days off. They have been working hard - a lot of meetings, a lot of training - so I will give them some days to be with their family."

  14. Brentford v Wolves: What does the form show?published at 12:07 21 January

    Brentford v Wolves form - past five games. Brentford: L Man Utd (h), L Liverpool (a), L Southampton (a), W Port Vale (a), W Aston Villa (h). Wolves: W Southampton (h), W Sheffield United (h), W Man Utd (a), D Chelsea (h), W Brighton (a)
    • Brentford are looking to secure the league double over Wolves for the first time since 2015-16, though this is just the third different campaign in which they’ve met since then.

    • Wolves have failed to score in three of their past four away league games against Brentford (W1 D1 L2), having found the net in each of their previous eight such visits before this.

    • Brentford have won just one of their nine Premier League games on a Saturday this season (D4 L4), while they’re winless in their four such games at the Brentford Community Stadium so far (D1 L3).

    • Having lost four of their first five Premier League games this season (W1), Wolves have lost just three of their past 15 (W8 D4). Only Manchester City (13) have conceded fewer goals than Wolves this term (15), while Bruno Lage’s side are the only team not to concede as many as three goals in a match so far.

  15. Lage might want to talk about Chiquinho - but Traore likely to dominatepublished at 10:56 21 January

    Bruno Lage

    Mike Taylor, BBC Radio WM

    Ten days to go in the transfer window, so expect Bruno Lage’s news conference later - and, for that matter, everyone else’s in the Premier League for the next couple of weeks – to be at least partly filled with questions trying to tease out snippets of information.

    This week, there is an actual transfer to talk to Lage about, with Chiquinho the latest young Portuguese player to find his way to the West Midlands.

    Lage might be eager to talk about his new winger, but is likely to be fielding more questions about one whose future has been unclear for some time: Adama Traore.

    With Spurs having seemingly firmed up their interest at last with an offer, albeit one well below the price Wolves apparently would consider, this is bound to be the major topic. However, unless a sale suddenly happens before he speaks, it may be that Lage can add little to his previous remarks.

    He might also have some interesting insight into this weekend’s fixture at Brentford. When the teams met in September at Molineux, the Bees' front pair, Ivan Toney and Bryan Mbuemo, gave the Wolves defence a chasing so far unmatched by any other opponents this season, regardless of league position and result.

    Brentford ought to have won that game more easily than 2-0, but since then Wolves have been remarkably obstinate, even against the strongest sides, so it will be interesting to hear Lage’s view on how to prevent the Bees having the same success this time.
