Football Today

Sep 17, 2020

A little over four years ago Wolves were an average team in the Championship. Now they're competing with the top teams in the country. One of the primary reasons for their success has been their recruitment of Portuguese players. In the current transfer window they've recruited two top talents from FC Porto; Fabio Silva and Vitinha. 

Today, we analyze their recent signings and look at the growing influence of superagents and networks in football.


Joe Edwards (@JoeEdwards_Star) covers Wolves for the Express and Star and is a co-host of the E&S Wolves Podcast.
