It’s hard to believe but Aston Villa could have overtaken us with a win at the Molineux in November.
The (mind the) gap now stands at 25 points – a chasm that rightly highlights the opposing directions both clubs are heading in.
Almost two years into Wolves’ Premier League adventure and our clinical edge is now razor sharp.
Ok, it would be nice to dominate from the off and score an early goal, but against limited teams like Villa we can afford to gently assert our authority onto proceedings, knowing that one chance will come – and invariably be taken.
After a stop-start first 30 minutes, Wolves stamped their mark on the game. It was a perfect example of Nuno’s philosophy of ‘control’.
One minute you’re marvelling at the way we stretch the pitch and move teams around with probing passages of passing and link-up play from Raul; the next, our shape and organisation is easily dealing with Villa’s limited and direct approach.
Moutinho and especially Neves best sum up our quality in and out of possession. Their appetite for getting a foot in as well as dictating on the ball is inspiring.
A word for Donk and Jonny too.
I’ve been critical of the former’s anonymous displays in midfield this season, but when the Belgian breaks forward with purpose like he did today, he has an impact.
It was a cool finish to a move that Jonny played a big part in. The Spaniard’s improvement under Nuno going forward shouldn’t be overlooked.
Oh and stick Adama wherever you like. On the right, down the middle, no one will stop him in this form. His sheer presence forced Villa into submission.
Nine points, three clean sheets and within touching distance of the Champions League. Some restart. Pinch me.
Oh and no yellow cards and suspension for Saiss! Superb!
I thought Jonny was comfortably the star performer today with his usual rock solid defending and his double involvement in the only goal. Neves, Boly and Jota were all a little off the pace so thankfully it was only little old Witton that we were playing.
Bring on the Arsenal. 1-0 to the Wanderers.
Jonny was superb today, and The Donk was not far behind.
We seem to be going through a phase of ‘just doing enough’ to win matches. It certainly works for me.
Even when Neves is off his game, Big Willy has a few ‘moments’ and Jota has not yet come to the party, we have enough quality to beat what is put in front of us.
Poor Villa. They were SOOO tired! Although Dean Smith hardly mentioned it (more than a dozen times).
Nuno, once again, was completely honest in his after match comments.
We started off poorly but grew into the game and ended up controlling the match and rendering Grealish impotent.
The look on his face when we scored was worth the £25 monthly BT pass alone.
Another solid performance, Donk played well. Shame Jota didn’t place the ball, but easy to say from the sofa!
9 from 9… Says it all.
Jonny was great. Made the goal and was it his block that prevented Villa’s only clear sighter of goal in the first half? Either way, he was effective in both directions.
Donk is a similarly unsung hero and took up several similarly menacing positions before finishing exquisitely for he goal.
Arsenal, Sheff Utd and Everton is a tough run. We didn’t beat any of them in reverse fixtures but I think this team has gone up a level since the first half of the campaign. 5-7 points would keep us on track for the CL.
Good write up paddy.
Didn’t think it was our best performance but it was efficient, effective and professional.
Dendoncker in the box to box role was excellent and very much deserving of the man of the match.
We’re a machine at the minute. Even when we’re not performing to our max we’re grinding out results. Leicester and Chelsea are seriously looking over their shoulders, we’re going to be pushing them for champions league all the way.
A great solid performance from a well oiled machine. The difference in class between the two sides was very pronounced.
Jota appears to have lost his confidence — hopefully temporarily. Might it might be a good time to start Pedro Neto in the next game,since his confidence is sky high and he has a huge natural talent ?
I cant remember a Wolves team with more of a resolve to win than the present one.Its almost the case of we shall find a way to win at all costs.That says a lot about our players but what also does it say about our brilliant Manager.
The game today was a perfect example of getting the job done every player knows what they have to do and all of them play there part so very well.Its only a pity that were not able to play 13 players as seems a shame to leave Traore and Neto out of the starting eleven when they both play so very well.
SOS penk wolfs thought we controlled the game from start to finish and even though we weren’t at our best far to good for the champions of Europe sorry ? thought it was 1982. So back in the real world take a good long look at the league table good times are here enjoying it all And Dean Smith says there tired ? we are all tired of his excuses COYW

His Lordship Nuno seems to have come up with a solution to games against teams who like to sit in and stop our natural counter attacking game. This involves patient control, solid defence and the ability to grab a goal or to and put the game to bed. Hence maximum 24 point return against the current bottom 4. Our natural game is then dusted down and unleashed against the more expansive sides. Hence the points accumulation against both sorts of opponent. Nuno is always on the look out for solutions. I was impressed with Micah Richards today on Talk Sport who was very appreciative of this Wolves side. Seems the penny might be dropping out there in ‘Big Six’ world. Very satisfactory result today. To conclude. Greasy’s barber should be given a police caution for inflicting his silly hair on the nation.
The Mighty Atom
Right on the money, that assessment.
London wolves loyal
Thought Jonny was excellent today.., got to say tho .. last night I had a dream and Stu. Wolf was in it. He actually left me at a railway station in Mexico to fight the Mexican s ( luckily they were not much lop .., while he went off to find a truck and left me with a mobile that didn’t even work
Thanks a lot Stu !
Never did get that truck Matt.
But dumped the dodgy Mobile.
Leave it to my 92 year old Dad to come up with some typical “Wolves fan of the past” logic.
You might be winning, but you’ve got to score more goals or the goal average (!) at the end of the season will get you.
But Dad, if we win every game by one goal over a full season, we will be champions.
Only if your goal average is better than the others.
If we’ve won every game, we will have more points than anyone else, so goal DIFFERENCE won’t matter.
Still, you gotta score more.
For the third time in a week, we have seen off a bottom dweller, without conceding a goal, something top clubs routinely do, season after season, and made all three opponents look pedestrian and very, very ordinary.
Isn’t that the whole point?
We are neither boring, dull or negative.
We play great football, and as a team, we have developed the winning mentality.
Not the win, or not lose, at any cost tactics which have been tried, and have failed against us, but free flowing positive and attractive football, the type which makes your hearts flutter, your toes curl and little tingles run up and down your spine.
Today’s result was a 1-0 spanking, once again, men against boys.
We never looked in trouble, and apart from a couple of tiny wobbles defensively, were as solid as Blackpool Rock.
I don’t buy into the notion of a 1 – 0 victory being a nail biter any more, we are just too good, and as we said a lot in the second division a few years ago, you can only beat what’s in front of you.
If the opposition is crap, it’s because they are, and we need to keep our fitness for when it will be really needed.
I will take 1 -0 wins every day over draws or losses.
And for me, The Donk was superb today, took his goal very well, but his all round play was top notch.
Now, a well earned rest, bring on the gooners.
Certainly not a great game but there were three magical moments. Jonny ‘s quick feet out of defence, Jiminez sublime pass in an Dendonker’s lovely finish.
Job done! Another complete performance, top four, or is it top three, We love you Nuno, we love you Wolves.
Well done Donk man of the match Jonny first time we have done the double over Vile since 62-63 season .
Nunno is King!!!!
Dean Smith, (apart from moaning they were tired), said “Not many teams have created chances against us”. Excuse me? Villa have conceded more Premier League goals than any other side in 2020 so far (24) so how does that work?
Oh yes sorry they won some cup in 1982 that’ll be it!
We didn’t play to our best but we got the job done, Donk played his socks off today, as did Jonny. Great team effort all round.
So it’s mind the gap, or as Tipton text me after the match it’s more a chasm now.
Another 3pts, 9 from 9, not bad is it.
Belated congratulations to Liverpool on their Premier League win, the only downside was what happened outside their ground. The Police chief said, “It’s disgraceful, I’m not having this every 30 years…”
Laughed loudly at that one Mildenhall, they are just looking after that trophy for a year or two until we are ready for a serious challenge.
9 for 9 makes CL continue to be possible. Wolves now resting and preparing while Arsenal have two games before Saturday.
Bring on Arsenal.
Professional, talented, humble, never satisfied and always seeking to improve- Nuno is the epitome of a leader and his body language and encouragement throughout the game is a lesson to any aspiring Manager. By contrast DS is completely out of his depth. We did enough to beat a poor Villa team and so good to see the unsung Trojan’s in the team getting today’s plaudits- Jonny/Leander- their unselfish hard work enables Raul and Adama the platform to show off their skills. Rui looks unbeatable too. Great times and whilst we might just come up short for 4th in the PL- who wants to play us in the EL?
Iv’e never won or even come close in the prediction league, probably never will, but I love this team turning my scores around game after game.
This bloke Nuno has turned these guys around and taken players from all over the World and shaped them into such a rock solid team.
This was a strong, steady Eddie performance, never really broke sweat to be fair, Villa offered little opposition the whole game.
Bring on Arsenal after a weeks break. Anyone willing to wager we can’t take 9 more points from the next 3 games?
Arsenal – tick
Sheff Utd – tick
Everton – tick
Now we truly are capable of achieving this, laying ghosts of managers past to rest.
Boly to sign a 3 year contract and Nuno to sit down with Fosun this week. What’s not to like.
There’s taking the piss and there’s taking the piss. Donks face is a picture.
Finally, I want to throw my hat in for the Jonny Otto appreciation society, he had a great game today.
Outstanding shot……just thinking back to early season and the young man banging on about doing a Wolves and going one better by finishing above us….how’s that going Jackie boy?

I’m just watching the EFL on Quest. A reminder of the old days. Remember all those grounds . PNE.Derby. Bristol. Blues. Fulham. Brentford. Reading. QPR. Don’t get me wrong. Many years of mediocrity in amongst that lot but some fabulous away days. Usually involved arriving around 10am and straight in the boozer. A few jars. Banter with the locals ( apart from Forest away. Crewe away. WBA obviously) Most of the time just having a good time and chatting to the locals. QPR always up there with my favourite away trips. How far have we moved on since? Cant believe we are now studying Chelsea/Man U results. When Fosun came they made a promise and they have so far fulfilled it. But I reckon they want more. So does Nuno. . Great days. Those were the days my friend.
I wouldn’t want to return there Cheesey, but I personally think the Championship is a brilliant league. Really competitive, really entertaining.
CHEESEBURGER OF DEATH
Nah. Nor me mate. I ad enough of the endless mediocre stuff on the pitch. I think us fans deserve some great times. I reckon it will get even better next 2 or 3 years. Glad we are still about to enjoy it.
Fully agree with all the plaudits for Jonny and The Donk. Unsung heroes, the pair of them. It seemed a little negative at first to play 5 across the middle, but the Donk was obviously under instructions to get forward at every opportunity, which he duly did and received his just reward. Terrific finish.
We do look like a classy outfit and no one, but no one, can take for granted getting any success against us.
What an enthralling climax to the season it promises to be.
9 out of 9points.. room for improvement ..can we keep going?
Big killer game at end of season
Traore still gold plated with every step..

I have got a t shirt Doog which I wear in the decent weather. It says ” FOOTBALL BEER AND PUNK ROCK”. Which pretty much sums it all up for me !!! Wolves Ay We.
I omitted to add ‘With great friends’.
CALL ME PICKY BUT….
I know it’s unfashionable not to faun over everything Wolves at the moment and along with everyone else I’m overjoyed we have 9 precious points out of our last 3 games which to my mind and to our credit have come against teams less well prepared for the restart than we are.
However we’re still struggling to put these less talented sides to the sword despite getting away with it. We should be easily capable of humbling our last 3 opponents more so than we did.
We’ll no doubt look much better against Arsenal as they’ll give us more space to play but I still think we’re one player short in midfield to make the difference between being a top 6 side and crashing the top three. As much as I love Neves and Moutinho – who I personally think is one of the best players ever to wear the gold shirt, sometimes they’re too similar and for some games we lack someone to link from midfield to attack. Someone in the David Platt / Geoff Thomas mould for you oldies although I do appreciate they don’t grow on trees!
Don’t think I’m not loving every bloody moment of this season but like Nuno says “we can still improve “
There’s loads more to come and I can’t wait!
Fernandes would have been perfect, we won’t pay what United did but we would be favourite to finish third had we got him
You could make a similar case for Grealish too.
(Puts on tin hat and takes cover)
Mellow Housto n from Clive, bin on the IPA
We need to be constantly looking for players who can improve what we have, we must never stand still.
Loss of form, injuries or just plain pissed offidness can lead to new blood being needed.
The good thing is that Dr. Nuno and Co do not need us lot to tell him that, he has problee got a dozen or more players in his signing sights as we speak, so to speak.
Sutton Coldfield wolf
Prawny there is nothing wrong with looking at ways we can improve even when we are enjoying level of success we’ve not had for 50+ years. As we are now starting to perform in and around CL qualification you are quite right that weight of goals is something that we are going to have to improve on. Given how far we’ve come so quickly it seems bizarre to be looking at the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, Liverpool etc as a barometer of where we need to be goals wise but the reality is that if the next few weeks go according to plan, that is exactly where our benchmark will be!
All a bit easy really I thought, I would have liked to have seen this game with a full stadium and the noise turned up but I suppose we benefited from the empty seats more than villa so,,,
With such a long break , these games are more a part of next season than last season really, I mean saying we have now played around 50 games doesn’t really mean much with a 3 month break so I’m starting to believe that we will be the biggest beneficiaries of lockdown.
Also it’s great being the chaser and not being the chased ( Man U , Leicester, Chelsea)
What a finale we have to look forward to and a whole week off to be ready
Come on you wolves
Anyone else cynical enough ( like me) to think Uefa waiting until next month to decide on man City ban is to see who finishes fifth?
If it’s United or spurs – ban them
If it’s wolves or Sheffield utd – erm just give them a big fine !
Could be Leicester or Chelsea yet Marney, if all goes well. That’ll screw ’em.
A tale of two managers .
One who is completely comfortable in his world and one who hasnt got a clue where he is.
One who is completely organised and one who is completely disorganised .
One who has a backroom team of dedicated thoroughly professional people to call on and one who has a haphazard bunch of overpaid journeymen around him most of whom haven’t a clue.
The fact is that nuno espiroto santo has the quality to be able to cope with the huge pressure of being at the top of his trade and dean smith knows in the deepness of his heart that he just cannot stretch his mind to grasp what is required of him.
And that reflects itself very distinctly on the field of play.
Wolves are one hundred percent going to the top .. have no doubt about that and aston villa are one hundred percent going back to the championship which is where their football and manager belong.
The premier league is a cruel but true place you are where you are because thats where you belong .
Wolves will now go from strength to strength of that there is no doubt .
Aston villa need a revolution of the type we had to cleanse the club and start again
for them the premier league came far too soon .
For villa yesterday was the beginning of the end for wolves it was the end of the beginning .
All very true Spikey. It’s no coincidence that when top quality players came from some of Europe’s most prestigious clubs to join a championship outfit, many of them quoted the presence of Nuno as the big attraction.
Or the Combermere Arms, Great Western and the curry houses or friendly
locals who allow the players to mix in. Every wondered why so many ex players stay in the area?
Waggies left eyebrow
Well written spikeyboy..
The gulf is ginormous.
On a side note I have seen helder costa is being retained by wolves..
Or have I misread it..
Still believe that he has something to offer
Thought we played it perfectly yesterday. Yes Jota could have made us all relax a bit more had his gone in as well but and for me this is a huge BUT even in the last throes of the game my Erdinger was going down smoothly as I genuinely thought these guys could play against us until Xmas and not score.
Gone are the old days of going 1 up in the 2nd half and feeling like we are hanging on for 25 minutes.
As for how we went about it. Back in my Mil days if we were going for a long tab over the hills doing it around January time would be a nice bimble and actually enjoyable. That same tab in 30 degree heat would be a nightmare with control of your old internal thermostat absolutely critical to not only how well you would move as a squad but also to avoid serious heat injuries and even death. Now as dramatic as that may sound all it takes to achieve what your after is meticulous planning. Here’s where our team (And most importantly including the often unsung backroom and med staff) excel. We are doing so well for so many reasons but starting slowly whilst controlling the pace and knowing when to step it up is a pleasure to see.
I thought it was a great all round showing in those conditions and the guys made it look effortless. From Boly’s colossal block on Grealish’s only real effort to the smart turn by Johnny (were we seriously looking at McGinn?). To Adamas getting off the bench with their back line thinking in unison “S**t I’ve got a bad feeling about this boss“.
I have privately been critical of both the Donk (ok I forgive him now for the Wembley fiasco – I know it wasn’t completely his fault) and Mr Saiss (the only squad player that still makes me uneasy) but that was an outstanding performance by the former and a cardless one by the latter.
We are living in heady times and although the team and staff may not and quite rightly so, bang on about what is the real possibility of CL football we as fans who have so long endured level 2 and below football, should bask in this because it is so well deserved.
Have a great Sunday all because it’s becoming a real statement and fact that as Wolves fans we can very nearly say with real conviction “Wim becoming a big club again”
A tribute to our Saiss for behaving yesterday on 9 points…
Hope the font stays aligned.

That’s brill Stu. Who thinks of this stuff?
He’s getting better and better, our Romain, and fully deserves the recognition he’s beginning to get. He seemed to get a booking every time he played but seems to know now what he can get away with. And what he can’t.
What pleases me is, he’s made that spot his own and is preferred to the Donk, but as we see the Donk is not being discarded by Nuno and has found his little niche.
All bodes well for building on the strong foundations in the summer.
I don’t think the Donck has ever played on the left side of the back 3, Stu. That was Big Wily”s spot. Nuno realised it was more logical to have a left footer there.

Lettuce hope he keeps improving at the same pace, and not become iceberg slow.

BREAKING NEWS: The Government have agreed with the F.A, that from the 4th of July, Aston Villa can visit other teams penalty areas if they feel safe to do so.
SKY SPORTS BREAKING NEWS:
Nuno Espirito Santo has confirmed Rui Patricio has been placed on Furlough due to his work being non essential during the last three games.
One thing i noticed ….Matt target relieved himself yet again of the responsibility of defending against adama with a suspected ham string injury shortly after kick off .
Similar to how he threw the towel in at the the molineux in the first meeting after being turned inside out a couple of times.

How much did Villa spend last summer? Cant see any of their players in the current Wolves team. We now resemble a well like machine with all the component parts interacting nicely. Take Jonny bursting forward to set up The Donk for the goal. In all three post lockdown games I just feel we could have gone up another gear if needed. A sure sign Nuno is introducing a game plan to conserve the energy of his players whilst also exerting a degree of control. It has been a long season. Dont forget most teams will finish at the end of July and wont return until mid September. For Wolves it’s another round of games in the Europa . Hope we get Manure in the final. But we wont be allowed to win it. There will be a VAR controversy and a stuffy penalty going their way . Can see it now. But a long way to go. Arsenal next up. And maybe a mention on Football Focus!
Yes, agreed, Stilton

Quote from Tim Spiers, “No player in the prem has run further this season than Fink’s 13.21 Km against Brighton just before the break”.
Nuff respect Donk, a contribution that could be under appreciated by lesser managers. No chance of that happening with our manager.
Studying all the detailed stats only goes to further show the quality our manager and his team brings to their roles.
Donk’s not Fink’s
I did wonder what Fink had to do with it. Made me fink anyway?
I know we didn’t give Villa the trashing they deserved but this was the sort of game we wouldn’t have won last season. Three clean-sheet winning matches in a week after such a long lay-off is a superb result in anyone’s book. The great Man U struggled against 10-men Norwich remember.
We haven’t really got out of first gear, nor have we needed to, but the missed fluency will come. I put part of the reason down to Jota’s struggles. Normally he would run the opposition ragged and soften them up for Traore to come on. Jota’s form will come back with a vengeance, hopefully in a more open match against Arsenal.
He just needs a haircut and he will be fine.
At least he has some hair, Senor Brompto, unlike your bald and polished dome!

This season we have taken 24 from 24.

I wish we were playing Chelsea On Saturday, they looked very leggy.

Come on me babbies.
No problem. Six hat tricks (spread it around lads) and a goal for Patricio from a goal kick. Mind you, MOTD will still ignore us and suggest Nuno will leave for a ‘bigger club’.
If we beat Arsenal 1-0 on Saturday, we go equal 3rd.
I’ll take that al millennium long.
You seem to be assuming that both Leicester and Man Utd will be dropping points. Fair enough.
Or at least Leicester.
As Man U play Leicester on the last game of the season it seems a reasonable assumption.
But of course you mean at the weekend. D’oh, apologies.
I’m not assuming nothing, I’m praying.
What a great season this is. Our name being put in the frame for possible Champions League place is such a massive achievement.
Whether it actually happens is a massive ask, but cast your mind back. A law change that ruled out a Boly goal at Leicester. VAR deciding Neto’s heel was off-side against Leicester at home.
How different would things look now if those ridiculous interventions had not happened.
It makes one wonder what further ridiculous interventions we’ll endure before the season is done. Enough to keep us out of the top four no doubt.

We are up against one of the Big Six on Saturday. Don’t be surprised if (when) another VAR ‘decision’ goes against us. I was on the BBC site last night on the Wham v Chelsea HYS. I said well done hammers. Commiserated about their VAR nonsense. There were a few Man u on there as well. I then pointed out a recent ‘how the table would look had VAR not been in use this season’ . This was after all teams were on 29 games. Surprise surprise. Wolves would have been 5th. SIX points above Man u who were in 10th. Which tells it’s own story. Needless to say the manure didn’t like it.
Take what you say Cheese, but surely Arsenal and Tottingham have now been relegated from the so called big six to be replaced by Wolves and Leicester.
That’s probably why VAR went against Spurs tonight and maybe why at long last we might have a VAR decision go our way. I wouldn’t bet on it though!
Sea Pigeon it used to be the “big four” but then a couple of them slipped and it became the “big six”. Now it will have to be the ” big ten”. You’ve got to laugh or else you’ll end up shouting into a vacuum.

Hope you are right mate. We are certainly due a few go our way for once.
Thanks, Paddy day for your post. The highlights of the premier league seem to be interesting—quite an impressive performance by Donk and Jonny of the Wolves team. I love the smart finish by Jonny. I missed watching the whole game.
