Man City Vs Wolves Preview

As someone who dreams of Wembley this isn’t ideal.

The problem with Man City compared to some of the other top brass is their reserves are better than most Premier League sides.

Even if Nuno fields our best eleven, which I don’t think he will, they’re going to find the going tough.

We’ve got nothing to lose and all the jazz, but hopefully we make a game of it and push them at least some of the way.

Man City

I don’t need to tell you that Pep’s boys are steamrollering everyone. Saturday’s 3-0 win over Burnley was their 11th consecutive victory.

They’ve netted 32 goals in just 9 league matches and are yet to lose a single game in any competition.

Definitely due a defeat then. Splendid.

Sergio Aguero is working his way back to fitness so he may well play, looking for the goal that will make him their all time top scorer.

Some others who didn’t start at the weekend include Yaya Toure, Raheem Sterling, Ilkay Gündogan, Brazilian wonder-kid Gabriel Jesus and two time Champions League winner Danilo.

They needed a late Leroy Sane goal to overcome our stripey friends down the round in the previous round but will feel confident of easier progression on their own patch.

Wolves

Over to you Nuno. If it were me I’d play our strongest team as I couldn’t resist seeing what they could do against the very best. If he wanted to change a couple around, maybe this is a compromise:

I’ve got nothing against our reserve players by the way. Quite the opposite actually, I rate almost every one of them. It just comes down to consistency and giving us the best chance of being competitive.

All the summer recruits will be desperate to play. They didn’t jet in from Porto and Atletico Madrid to turn it on at Burton I imagine so they’ll want the spotlight.

That’s what I’m hoping anyway, as it increases the chances of the best players taking part. If they don’t though, at least they’ll be nice and rested for Saturday I suppose.

Predictions

Call me a dreamer if you like but I reckon we’ll…get totally smashed.

That’s no slight on our excellent team. I think the lads have got every chance of going there and acquitting themselves very well. I just think Man City are playing on another level to everyone else and you’ve got to back them for a comfortable victory.

Wolves have got to do what they’ve done very well already this season, look after the ball. City will likely dominate possession, but when we do get it, we’ve got to keep it and use it effectively.

Have a right good go lads.

Up The Wolves!

    I can see our reserves beating theirs 2-1 if there an early Fernendinho red card. Otherwise, hard to see us do anything other than get heavily beaten. They’re just that good.

      – Difficult match indeed. The City players Thomas named as possible players are world class players and everyone rates them as big favorites. When that is said I also rate our players highly. Marshall, Zyro, Enobakhare, N’diaye, Price, Costa, our defense and keeper are all quality players. We don’t have world class strikers. That’s the major difference between the sides tomorrow. I rate Enobakhare as one of the biggest talents in the world, but compared to Aguero and Jesus he’s just beginning to learn the trade. Zyro and Costa were class acts before their injuries and aren’t the players they were – yet. Still, we have the quality to cause an upset. And perhaps our players wants it more?….

      1-3 Wolves

    Yes. Interesting game to watch. So long as our boys give a good account of themselves I’ll be happy. However I couldn’t resist a little bet at 18 – 1. after all its a 2 horse race and we are a little bit special when it all clicks.

    For me I think we’ll have a great run-out and if Pep only puts outs a complete second string do I think we have a chance – but heart will always overrule my yed!
    Wolves to win from 1 x early goal then another early in second half and a late consolation from Aguero in 90 mins…..

  21. I see the argument about Ruben, Diogo et al not coming here to play Burton, but the fact is, if we get promotion they’ll be playing Prem teams every week. That is more important and I’m sure they’ll understand if Nuno gives ’em the night off. Anyway, our reserves did the biz at St Marys and need the playing time. And our first eleven have momentum and don’t need their confidence denting by one of the best teams in Europe.
    However, having said that, we marmalised the Saints first team(pretty much) with our reserves so hope springs eternal. And any complacency in the Citeh ranks will be suitably punished.

    Obviously I want us to win every game we play and win every competition we are in but, with no disrespect to any Bloggers who are going to Manchester’s Arab sheikh-dom tomorrow night, I don’t want us to play our first team. Given a choice between a stirring victory in the kareoke cup followed by a defeat at Loftus Road or going out of the cup and winning at QPR I know what I prefer. Promotion is everything. Nothing, and I do mean nothing, else matters.

    Here is the team I hope Nuno puts out;

    Norris
    Hause Bennett Boly
    Marshall N’Diaye Price Vinagre
    Costa Enobakhare Zyro

    Subs: Burgoyne, Coady, Ronan, Deslandes, , Cavaleiro, Jota & Wilson

    They put their trousers on one leg at a time, same as us.
    Their shit don’t stink any less than ours, so why can’t we look forward to a victory?
    If we go out with the mindset we cannot win, we’ll get creamed.
    We go out with the mindset of wanting to take their place at the top of the prem soon, we’ll have a better chance.
    Add in the human nature factor of theirs, playing a “lesser” team and all that, and Bobs yer Auntie, a Wolves win.
    There is no preddo league entry for this match, so I will change my usual score.
    Don’t think a 5-1 is realistic, so I’ll plump for 5-0

    This game doesn’t matter in the whole scheme of things this season but on the other hand we don’t want a demoralising defeat. Nuno is a proud and dignified man, he will put a good team out. Did someone say 25-1 ? I’ll have some of that. I might even take a bit of 16-1 which seems to be the worst odds mentioned by my learned friends above. We have a chance and it ain’t as bad as the aforementioned odds suggest, m’lud.

    I’d rather not have this match at this moment in time (cliche alert) but it is what it is and I think we will give a good account of ourselves. 1-0 to Nuno’s wolf cubs.

    We should be the one’s with Feck all to lose and everything on the table to gain.

    So boys, give it your best shot, win lose or draw 6100 fans will be cheering on you every move, kick and challenge. This will be one of those occasions when your’e allowed to play good football without running the risk of losing a limb.

    Hey, who the feck is gonna moan if you get stuffed against the Numbero uno team of the moment.

    It’s the Win win situation of your professional careers, what a shop window to ply your undoubted talents in, whether your’e the first team or the stand in second stream.

    So, get out there, give it 100%, try your best, enjoy the moment, and bring home the bacon.

    Man City press high and do what Barca did under Pep – which is to always try and regain the ball within a few seconds of losing it. It worked a treat when they beat Chelsea but I have doubts whether they can sustain this over a season, let’s see.

    To be honest, if our patient build up play stuttered against high pressing Preston we’re going to have a nightmare tonight if we try the same. I hope Nuno realises this and has a backup plan or else it will be a long night.

    I’ll be looking for a stream tonight since a mid week trip to the north was sadly off the cards from day one. My respect to all our 6,000 travelling fans – incredible support.

    Discussing the game last night, someone said “we’ve got as much chance against them as Huddersfield did against Man Poo”

    Obviously Man Shitty are a class above their noisy neighbours, but I don’t know, I just feel the hand of fate on my shoulder today.

    Nuno is definitely a disciple of the Pep Guardiola school of being much better than everybody else, and I’m sure there will be great respect between them.

    Last season Man Shitty had a tendency towards being overly complacent, and although they look a different side this year, they are still all the same players. Hopefully hubris will give us a platform in the game.

    If De Bruyne plays, all bets are off. That lad is playing football as good as anyone has in this country for a long old while. When we take the lead I’ll expect him to be subbed on to try and rescue the game, so my game plan would be to keep it 0-0 till about 85 minutes, then score a quick brace. Easy as that.

  54. VPN is a virtual private network. What you do is sign up with a provider and it allows you to sign into their servers in all countries around the world. From there, you are allowed access to the internet. (If the company does not keep logs, it cannot help the police track down who did what because there is no historical record of what anyone did.)
    By doing that, the thought police cannot tell who you are and cannot come knocking on your door for downloading or watching things illegally, assuming it is illegal to do what you are doing.
    It also allows me to log into a server in the UK and then appear to the website as if I am there and therefore bypass country restrictions for viewing highlights, for example

        Listening to 5live extra I thought the commentary was being done by the chairman and secretary of Man City Supporters Club ….. every City player was named in the action while all too often we heard “The ball is cleared by a Wolves defender”. Not very professional really, but completely overshadowed by Trevor Sinclair’s many different – all wrong – attempts to get Nuno’s name right …. typical was “Nuno Santo Espurto” …. surely that just shows a complete lack of the preparation expected from broadcasters.

        For me the result was quite acceptable …. we showed very clearly what we are made of while avoiding distractions later in the season.

    Strewth. Looks like one of my two bets came up. £25 on a draw at 10-1. The score at 90 minutes is what counts I think. The other bet was a win at 18-1 for £25. £250 winnings and my £25 back. Thank you Wolves and Nuno!

    Come on you Wolves. Let’s win this one now!

      Enobakhare and Bravo players of the match. A good performance by the lads. We don’t need to buy another striker in january. If we end up buying another striker we’ll have to loan out Enobakhare to another club to give him match training. And if we end up buying another striker he’ll better be good. What player Enobakhare is! Fantastic link-up play, he was almost an attacking force alone. If he improves his finishing skills he’s already a player of highest calibre in my view. And Arse-nal better keep their fingers away from Vinagre. Kept Sterling in check when he was out wide.

  67. We did ourselves proud. We announced ourselves to the rest of the country.
    We bowed out gracefully.
    Now we can concentrate on the league.
    What’s not to be happy about?
    Disappointed? Sure. But we still put on a defensive show.
    And Leo scored!

      – Leo scored and his allround game has improved greatly since he arrived to Wolverhampton. After the first matches I asked myself if he was for real, if he was a brazilian, because his control was way under par the Brazilian standard. He was of course not in the best shape then but now there’s know doubt of his Brazilian origin. Showed off his technical skills again against Man City with excellent ball control.

      – Vinagre’s dribble deserved a better end-product. Eye opener for many so late in the game.

    To put tonight’s performance and result into perspective – our starting line up cost £17m (with £13m of that on Costa). Man City’s starting line up cost £276.8m. We put out an essentially second string line up whilst they had big hitters like Aguero, Sterling, Jesus, Silva etc.

    They may be through to the next round but there was only one winner tonight. Wolverhampton Wanderers and their amazing fans.

    Next season in the PL we are going to be amazing and shove it right up so many of the so-called elite.

      – Yes, I’m sure they couldn’t believe their eyes when Bright brushed Mangala off the pitch twice. EA have to adjust his strength up on Fifa 18 after this game.

    Fabulous night for the lads, proud to be a Wolves fan, and what a leader we have in Nuno!

    Listened on the radio in my parents’ caravan in St Ives, and was on tenterhooks all night! Agree Sinclair’s butchering of Nuno Espirito Santo’s name was cringeworthy!!

    Disappointing to hear Guardiola blaming the ball for their troubles rather than crediting the lads for their efforts, but pleased some dissenting voices from Wolves fans when the teams were announced have been knocked down several pegs.

    Roll on the rest of the season, and look forward to playing Man Shitty again next year with our first team and taking soke points off the smug northern gets.

    I started on 5 live while lounging in the sauna but it was that total thick twat sinclair who got my blood boiling not the sauna.
    Is he for real or what ? who the hell hired him the one eyed totally biased knob .
    It was so annoying i had to get up and put wm on and although the commentary was more balanced old mel eves didnt seem to be able to remember what he was talking about half the time.
    Still it was better than 5 live or man citeh radio as we should call it.
    Wolves were brilliant and have now showed the rest of the prem how to stifle the citeh.
    Lets hope we get a round ball on saturday so that it doesnt make our players keep falling over in the box like theirs did.

    Smoke & mirrors Pep, smoke and mirrors.

    It was the wrong ball?

    Not the fact that you had to field 4 substitutes in an attempt to beat the Wolves second string, albeit illegally, you put 2 of them on in extra time which you are not allowed to do. If Wolves chose to contest it, there may have to be a replay, just what you don’t need right now eh.

    So let’s blame the feckin ball.

    Arrogant and tit are two words that spring to mind.
