10 games are sufficient to weigh up what you can expect from a season, which is just as well, because there’s every chance we’ll be on zero from three after this one.
To some that will sound overly negative, but it’s just the reality.
There’s been enough in the performances to suggest we can eventually climb the table but equally, enough deficiencies to show we’ll struggle against the better sides.
Rattling in four against Forest will be a morale boost for those involved and if we have Podence and Boly back in the squad our prospects improve, but this is a big ask so early in the Lage era.
Should we get a result, it would offer a real catalyst to get the season properly up and running. Even if we can’t do that, I hope we can at least score a goal.
The draw at Southampton last weekend saw Utd equal the record for the longest undefeated away run in Premier League history, meaning they can move clear by avoiding the L here.
That doesn’t surprise me as they’re a good counter-punching side with a solid defensive setup and pace to hurt teams on the break.
Where they’ve been caught short at times is breaking opposition down that don’t give them those spaces to exploit.
In that sense, Bruno’s Wolves will be a more enticing prospect than Nuno’s, but that’s no guarantee of success.
They were disappointing on the south coast against an unfancied Saints team, but Mason Greenwood made it two goals in two games – having also scored in the 5-1 rout of Leeds the previous weekend – to ensure they got a point.
Summer signings Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho could be handed a start, with big things expected from both of them.
Marcus Rashford, Edison Cavani and Scott McTominay are three notable absentees.
Did anyone play themselves into contention in midweek? Other than possibly bringing in Ait-Nouri for Marcal, I’m struggling to see who might drop out.
I suppose you could argue that using Gibbs-White, Fabio or even Daniel Podence somewhere across the front line could be an option to offer some fresh ideas to the attack.
It was encouraging to see Trincao getting into the box and scoring the other night and we need him in those inside positions more often. Against Spurs, he did some decent things but never threatened the goal.
All the credible transfer speculation seems to focus on us bringing in a high-profile centre half, but I’d still like another attack-minded player.
Last time out
We lost this fixture 2-1 in the final game of last season to a second-string Utd side. Nelson Semedo gave us a deserved equaliser to cancel out their early goal, but after Traore went off injured we were predictably one dimensional going forward and lost to a soft penalty.
In the game at Old Trafford earlier in the season, we acquitted ourselves quite well and were unfortunate to lose with the last kick of the game to a deflected Marcus Rashford goal.
Well done to Ash K who was the only one to correctly predict a 1-0 defeat to Spurs and picks up the first maximum of the season to lead the overall table at the end of Gameweek 2.

Up The Wolves!
Hopefully get something from this and start moving up next week
As sweet as it was to get a thumping win in the cup and play well against Spurs, the team just doesn’t give me the feeling they’ve got enough to answer all the questions required to get a big result against a top team.
I think we’ll do better this season against the bottom half sides and hold our own against the mid-tier teams. But the high-press, high defensive line could be a problem as there’s very little margin for error. Spurs got in a couple of times just by chipping a ball over the top, so I can see better players exploiting that space in behind and Utd have the personnel to do just that.
If we were to score a goal or two here and hold our own in the game, it would give me a lot of belief. I just don’t want to see us continually eased out by a defensive lapse and an inability to score.
‘But the high-press, high defensive line could be a problem …’
Exactly this. Leeds play a (very) high line and intensive press (more so than ours) and look what happened to them. Can’t see this ending happily, but once this is out the way we should be picking up points regularly.
Another tough test for us tomorrow, United tend to do well against high pressing teams and our lack of pace in defence does worry me. That being said i really have enjoyed all three of our performances so far. After this one I suspect we will have added a few players and start to pick up points. Speaking of transfers if Ruben Neves is still a Wolves player come 1st September I will be happy
Clive from Houston
For all you Tolkein and Hobbit fans out there, you will be pleased to know one of our fellow bloggers has passed the Old Took.
Many Happy Things to my good friend, the one, the only, His Grace, Lord Twix of Stafford!
Av a bostin’ day, Ol’ Pal!
On to Sunday.
I see nothing to be scared of in those prawn sandwich tossers from Manchester. All their past exploits are just that, past, and we have an exciting, attack minded philosophy just starting up, and what better than the scalp of those arrogant pillocks?
Easy three points, with the backing of a screaming, manic Molineux.
Give ‘em fook, lads and lassies, just wish I could be there.
5-1 to me Babbeeez
Theres no place for score preddo, Thomas
Clive from Houston
There it is!
Cheers you old buggar…
Lady Twix sends her best wishes..
Prawn Sandwich Tossers. ‘-)
Escargot Voluvents for Pogba, £50 each.
Crook Fingered Jack
I believe we’re going to surprise a few people with this one . . . .
A Wolves win AND we’ll score in the first half.
Man Utd will get a consolation goal with 10 miutes to go just to keep my nerves on edge.
I watched m u against Southampton and they were no great shakes if we can score first then 2-1 to the Wolves
I don’t think we are defensively sound enough to hold out against a very good counter attacking side but I do think we will score and lose
My bigger concern is that we are not fishing in the same transfer pool as West Ham, Villa, and Leicester and I do not think we will bring in the three quality players we were promised all Summer long
What a load of rubbish from some Wolves fans. Wolves are simply not good enough to compete with the best in the league. Weak in defence and attack they have no hope against Man Utd. Saiss poor defender and Jiminez not yet back to his best. A pacy central defender, midfielder and attacker all required. I predict a comfortable Utd win. Be realistic Wolves fans.
London wolves loyal
Us be realistic ?…. Best in the league ?… that’s hilarious .
Not even the best in Manchester
I think he just broke out of his time capsule from about a decade ago
CHEESEBURGER OF DEATH
Wolves 17 Manure 1. REALISM.
Your so full of shite you manure armchair fans.
Should be a wide open game
Ref and VAR will not like us but we deserve a bit of luck for our efforts
Can Boly teach Kilman how to come up for a corner and get a bullet header in ?
Jimenez to score
Most optimistic zero points for the season yet
London wolves loyal
Happy Birthday lord Twix of stafford Castle
Cheers LWL…. Top bloke and Diamond geeeeezer… great friend.
Will you be in the Lych Gate pre match Matt?
Portuguese men of Wolves
Positive thoughts on this match
my 1st match since Spuds away last year and am hoping we give them hell !!
10 matches from after the transfer window shuts, yes.
Shoot them to pieces!!! Up the Wolves
It’s funny how playing attacking, entertaining football and scoring four unanswered goals last time out can still lift the heart and cloud the judgement of even the most cynical fan.
Well maybe not everyone on this blog. That would be asking TOO much.
But, although it was against Forest’s under 14’s and I should be old enough to know better, it’s certainly made me feel a lot more positive about things.
Talk about old enough to know better, I would like to add my best wishes to the birthday boy(?!) today.
Happy Birthday M’Lud Twix.
Have a great one Mike!
I’ve spoken to Bruno and he’s assured me that the lads are aiming to provide a win for you on Sunday.
And, you know, I think he might just be right.
Thanks to the two of you…
Friends for life… see you on Sunday at the parking lot… Dougie’s
See you there!
At Molineux we can beat everyone! Nobody can stop Jimenez and Traore on a good day – world class players. Trincao scored last match and is a joker I don’t believe Man U will offer to much pre- match attention. I’m sure they’ll spend most of the time preparing how to stop Traore. If they double up on Traore there’s bound to be some extra space for Trincao. I’m of course a bit worried how the defense will cope with pacey players like Rashford, Greenwood and Fernandes. Our defense has been surprisingly solid so far though.
i am happy to see that we are keeping traore
Graham from Horsham
To start with l want to see us score first.
Once that is done we’ll be a tad more confident and can then aim to grab a point or three.
It will also calm the nerves with going into the International break with something on the board.
Happy birthday Lord Twix from a Staffordian in exile.
Have to agree with Thomas and others, not sure we have enough, yet, against the big spenders. However, definitely the future is bright. We are playing a more exciting style and raining shots towards the net, has to come good at some point, why not against Manure hey.
Cheers Marnhull… must meet up with you soon so that I can have that drink that you keep promising me…. Let’s get it on …
Your absolutely spot on my Lord, I do owe you a couple by now! Unfortunately I will miss a couple of home games. But, Leeds at home I will pay my dues, how’s that sound?
Expect us to be vulnerable to United’s counter-attack. Think this could be a lot tougher than Spurs, although reckon we should at least find the back of the net.
Really hope we can get 2 or 3 more players over the line before the window shuts, but can’t help but feel nervous when you hear the well trodden line ‘we’ll only sign top players’. Can be code for, ‘we’re probably not signing anybody else’. With the size of the squad, we could really do with some more through the door. That said, would be great if we get to keep Traore.
Happy Birthday Twix-y
Meantime despite seeing real
Signs of progress this season I can’t see past another zero here
Really hoping we keep Ruben and Adama and add at least one proven reinforcement over the next few days
Then we can begin accumulating points with a settled side and an exciting style….please
Hope you’re all good over there in sunshine city….
Can’t wait to see you again mate at the next bloggers ball…
Can’t see anything other than a defeat here. Let’s hope we at least make it competitive.
Sounds about right to me Rich.
Will utd have too much for us ???
They bloody well should have considering the spondoolies they’ve spent over the last couple of seasons
I suspect that tactics are their weakness . They have great individuals who can win a game on their own but somtimes as a team they get a bit lost .
The saints caught them napping resting on their laurels and i see no no reason why we cant do the same ,after all we have the soon to be worlds greatest player in adama traore who will start to love the net bulging withhis first hat trick of the season.
My money is on a shock ( to arrogant mancs that is ) result.
Looks like the Cristiano Ronaldo circus has hit the town and I think we can capitalise on being rank underdogs on Sunday. If we can maintain our all out attack mindset and have a little luck then 2.1 to us. Nothing to fear but fear itself, go for it Wolves.
Head rules heart again. But there are signs that things are looking up.
A difficult one to call mate. I will mull this over.
Happy birthday Mike. Hope Lillian spoils you.
Great to see you last week.. and hope to see you soon…
First of all … A BIG THANK YOU TO THOMAS, FOR INCLUDING A BIRTHDAY PLUG FOR ME IN THE PREFACE.. cheers mate and may I say well done for the continuation of an evermore fascinating, professionally written and ‘Wolves aye we’ blog.
Secondly, thanks to all my blog mates for the birthday wishes, and without singling anyone out ..(oh .. go on then) … CLIVEYBOY… who continues to amaze me.. with all things ..( considering his personal battles), to keep a big big Houston smile in his face… Cheers Mate…
Thanks guys…. I love you all.
Regards Sunday and the Mike Dean show… I’ve predicted two 1-0 victories for the first two games and have missed out by the finest of margins.. which, I’m sure, most of us would agree that we were worthy of at least one, if not three points from each of the 1st two games.
So I have no doubt that Sunday will bring the solar axes to meet over WV1 and by 18:30 will be lined up over the Man Utd departing team bus to bid them bye bye after a humiliating 2-0 loss to our very improving and watchable Wolves.
I genuinely see and feel that Bruno is having a good go at making us a more attacking unit and has released the shackles from some players that were there under Nuno… I’m loving it..
As with most on here I am fairly confident for the season if we don’t get a serious shock in the leaving department, but I think this game has come a little too soon for us to field the very quick defenders we need against a side much better than the Spurs side at present. Also the defenders will be a lot harder to overcome than the young inexperienced Forest. Don’t get me wrong, we played very well and you can only play what’s in front of you. I always follow the ten game rule and no one can know what the future may hold until we see what we have in the next few games.
We could easily win or draw this game but I think we will lose. I’m more interested at this stage in how well we play as we have been excellent in most aspects of the game so far. Here’s hoping I am badly wrong…
Bruno attack attack attack!!!
Goals to come Sunday ?
And I is sober
King of the cowshed
Head rules heart on this one. Wait another week for the points to come.
Someone reminded me that 10 years ago to the day Wolves stood on top of the EPL with 7 pts from 3 games, 1 pt above the two Mancs. Of course we all know it’s not where we finished at the end of that season, and it reminded me of the old cliche, “It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish!”.
This season has been a tough start for Wolves, but hoping we can continue to get stronger and finish well. Time to unleash the Kraken (I mean Adama!) 🙂
Come on Wanderers, let’s stuff ’em!
Can’t bear to predict third defeat in a row but it’s the most likely outcome. Sigh.
I am more optermistic about getting a result against Utd than I thought I would be.
There run has to come to an end sooner or later so why not Sunday we are playing well but just need to find an end product. The win against a poor Forrest will have helped. What encourages me is Bruno……from what I have seen and heard from him so far my impression of him is he doesn’t suffer fools and you either perform for him his way or he lets you know about it in no uncertain terms like the rollicking he must have given them at half time at Leisceter that never seemed to happen under Nuno.
Under Nuno I got the feeling he was to close to the players some even more so than others and never got the impression he really gave them a rollicking when they were not performing. Of course it is important a manager has the respect of the players but also more importantly the players respect the manager and understand there has to be boundaries between them.
With Bruno I feel there is mutual respect and the players understand he won’t tolerate players that won’t conform to his way and give 100 per cent commitment he seems more forthright than Nuno more intense, Nuno came across as layed back and placid which don’t get me wrong when everything was going well was fine……the problem was when thing we’re not going so well, you got the feeling he needed to give the players a kick up the arse now and again.
Just my opinion…..I have no crystal ball no inside information.
Wolves 2. Man Utd 1.
When you talk sense on something orher than your usual hobby horse, I actually agree with you.
There is hope yet for us to drink together without fisticuffs!!
Cheers Clive………mines a Guinness ..!
Let’s not go overboard, you’ll have an IPA and like it!!
The Ronaldo news puts me in mind of what was I think his first game at Molineux – 2003 perhaps, where we jeered his footovers (before he became more famous for his legovers), and beat them 1-0 with a super solo goal from Kenny Miller.
We could win this one too.
I’m not confident, but looking forward to seeing Bruno’s boys giving it a good go.
That was an awesome game O&W. The South Bank in full voice singing ‘You’re not the real Ronaldo’ 🙂
Still not convinced. Utd will have too much for us.
Had a bet with a fellow W supporter that we would have 0 pts after 3 games. At least Arse will be lower than us on goal difference.
Have so far gone for 3 st. wins on the Prediction League – well you have to don’t you.
Would be great to stuff Man.U scummers- always top of my hate list.
We deserved something from the last two games and got zilch.
Manure are great team and we all know they will take some beating.
If we can get a point I will be more than happy just to get a 1 on the board .
Quality players are what’s required to complete with the likes of Manure, but we are restricted like 75% of the premiership with the fair play rule restrictions, of which we are doomed by.
Wolves (struggling to get players in because of F F P) v Manure (who can spend as much as they can find) add into the mix Deano the Anti-Wolf and VAR, what a mixture to overcome.
The 4 goals against Forest will be a confidence boost but can’t see us getting a result here, as well as our defense has played so far we are still in need of strengthening.
Wolves 1 – 3 Manure
Bruno ball Still worries me in this league .
Think they will have too much on the counter.
Having given all their money to Ronaldo. Pogba and co have to walk to Wolverhampton. meaning they are creamed come kick off.
Kenny Hibbitt is on his game this week and the ref is on a warning.
Silva has been polishing Adama’s boots with fairy dust and he runs rings around Adolf McGuire.
Olly spends the whole game making a large $$$ sign out of Lego.
We don’t care if you lose cos everybody hates you.
Btw were are all the’realistic’ Wolfs???
Don’t think I’ve got the hang of this League thing.
Oh well here we go. Seeing improvement, but not enough yet.
Looking forward to this one, it will be interesting to see how we approach the game with Utd happy to play a counter attacking style.
Get it wrong and they could hurt us so I’m hoping we get the first goal for a change.
The muppets who claim to be pundits were saying utd will be disappointed that they dropped points at Southampton!!!!!
Dropped points! They were playing another premier team away , for a team that hasn’t won the league for quite some time should be happy they got the draw.
No doubt adama will be on fire for the last game before the window closes so hope we get the best of him before he goes all sulky ( is that even a word ?) .
So for that reason, and the fact that the mancs have already added the 3 points to the table, I think we will get our first point
Come on you wolves
My Mum is from the town of Lord Twix, which makes me half Wulfrunian, half Staffordian. Although my p**shead cousins in Stafford (if they’re not still locked up in HMP) would be the sort of people even the Baggies wouldn’t want.
Well do them!
When I first saw the fixtures list, I though zero points from the first 3 games. I have been pleasantly surprised by the new Wolves style of attacking football. All we need is someone to convert all these chances. Sadly I don’t think it’s going to happen in this game.
We can’t win this match with our current lineup and formation. Although I hope I’m wrong…
I take little confidence from us beating a poor second division sides under 23s.
Our previous two league matches however showed some promise.
I’ll feel more confident if Boly replaces Saiss at the back and we all know if only one player comes in next week it needs to be a commanding midfielder although for the quality we want it’s easier to uncover hens teeth.
I’ll feel a lot more confident about picking up points after this one. Ronaldo is a sideshow which could play into our hands but individually you would expect them to have too much for us.
I am still positive about our start to the season and think we will get our first League goal. Pace at the back is a real problem – both legs (Coady) and mind (I don’t think Saiss is always attuned to where he is supposed to be).
Better times are ahead, but no points yet.
Poor old Coady is our one real weak link, pace wise, at the back.
One well placed thru ball, and Bob’s yer Uncle, unless he ain’t got balls, then he’s yer Aunt.
Just posted similar.
This is Ash K, even though it appears as Ash. Used the correct email, so all should be OK – I want to keep top spot in the PL
Ok, this time there’s real thought behind this weeks prediction. Here goes: The one and only PL match that I’ve had the honour to attend was on August 19, 2019 (one of the best nights of my life) at the mighty Molineux. That match was against these Man Ure and ended in a 1 – 1 draw. So I’m starting with that score but I’m adding in a goal due to the fans energy that will carry the boys on to victory. See, real deep thought this time.
United’s pace against our high press / slow back 3 worries me – especially if we have to chase the game and how often do the opposition score first. I dearly we hope we can get something out of it, at least score one, (or preferably more), but I’ve concerns.
Good to see Podders, Yerson and Willie back but maybe this is a game or two too soon for them.
Ron Flowers My All Time Hero
Think Wolves may at last benefit from a fit Daniel Podence and hope he’s a starter tomorrow.
First, happy birthday Lord Twix. We don’t know each other but why should that stop me acknowledging a fellow Virgo.
The football powers decree an international break around my birthday, which is nice.
Second, Sunday. Well Yanited (and the media) are too over themselves about re-signing Ronaldo to bother much about us. Solskjaer doesn’t convince me yet, for some inexplicable reason, and his interviews just bore me. I’m not sure how/whether he will manage this “team”.
I’m optimistic about Wolves’ season after what I’ve seen from 3 games. Hoping this one is the first league game where it all comes together.
Thanks for the message Deptford… much appreciated mate.
Virgos are knowledgeable, articulate and caring… which makes two of us…!!
If you ever get up to the Golden Palace it’s my pleasure to get you a beer mate …. (Offer expires on 28 Aug ‘21.. joking). Also try to get to a bloggers ball … you will love it…
Much respect to you..
A score draw with our first point to get us going in the right direction.
Our first three points on the board!!!
I think we’ll play well again and it’ll be a good game but I’m struggling to see us get any kind of result. Until Bruno gets the players he wants he can’t fully implement his style. I think it’s obvious where we need to strengthen and fingers crossed we’ll see some new faces in the coming days.
For the media this game is going to be all about Ronaldo. Clearly he has one of the biggest egos in history. And he’s walking into a dressing room full of massive egos and sensitive personalities who won’t be happy.
Probably he’ll be on a higher salary than any other player as he adds to his pension pot. All of which adds to a divided squad which could work for Wolves who look very together. So perhaps illogically I’m hoping for and expecting a win.
Firstly, and most importantly, I’d like to join in with the chorus of ‘Happy Birthday to you’ for M’lud Twix. All round top bloke and genuine good egg, who kindly gave me a lift to the ground when I first met fellow bloggers on a matchday. Never less than a true gent.
Talking about true gents. Ronaldo has returned to Manure and the arrogant little twerp could learn much about being a gent from his international team mate, one Joao Moutinho. Strange how two players whose paths have crossed so frequently can be so different.
As for this game, Brunos new team with the same players have thrilled me with their adventure and swashbuckle. To be honest, I’ll put up with lack of results, for a while at least, as long as he keeps their buckles well swashed and our defence playing in midfield.
I will get fed up with losing, but I ain’t yet. I’m just bloody proud to call myself a Wolves fan.
Spot on regarding Rinaldo wolf striker.
Personally I just want him and messy to disappear, they are both obsessed with their own self importance, time to move on.
He couldn’t make juve starting line up so has left , poor olly will probably lose his job trying to keep the walking groin happy and I’ll enjoy watching it .
Steve… I’m welling up mate after the very kindest of comments…
I always regard you as .. ‘the wise one’ since everything you write it spot on and very truthful…
You’re an absolute genuine legend and top fan…
In fact that’s two beers I’m offering in the space of a few min.. Deptford Wolf and Wolfstroker… oh btw.. offers expire 28 August 21… lol
Hope to meet up soon buddy..
The Witley Wanderer
Have a good un Mike.
Cheers Witley …. I looked for you in the NB bar last week…. In your usual spot but didn’t see you…
Take care mate and see you soon..
Most kind M’lud. Never known to turn down a beer, me. And if Deptford could join us, we’d be all Virgins together. Now wouldn’t that be lovely.
If you’re a virgin.. then the earth is square mate..
On paper, it does not look good, but football is not played on paper! I believe we will score today, and if a little luck comes our way, we can certainly win this!
I do think that all of those penalties that they got last season, has papered over a few cracks, but to be honest, they have strengthened over the summer. We shall see!
Off to Spain early hours of Sunday morning. Gonna be watching the game at the \wolves bar in Cala de Mijas…..can’t wait.
Should be a good game and I expect a Wolves win.
Let’s hope Arfur has some tactical tricks up his sleeve.
That made me laugh.
We’ll press them off the park, stifle their movement and score in both halves.
They are good ,very good in fact
We will have to be better to win
It’s true of course that we could end up with 30 shots, 7 on target and 1 goal at most. On the other hand we might, we just might, find things coming together rather better. We will start to score sometime and it might, it just might be against Manure. Having lost one game to a half chance that could have gone anywhere and another to a penalty that was at best looked for and at worst dived for, we can still give anyone a game. Sunday may, as some have reasonably said, be a bit soon for us to come good, but it might not be. While another loss is clearly a possibility, I have real hope for a breach in the dam and the first flow of what could soon be a flood of goals and a win.
It’s not hard to see that tomorrow’s game will turn into the Mike Dean Show and he will give Man Ure a very dodgy penalty for a late equaliser.
As much as I would love a win, I can’t really see. I’ll plump for a hopeful draw.
When we stop giving penalties away, the wins will come.
Iminez to score 2.
Just realised Mike Dean is in charge tomorrow. Should we even bother turning up.
In the last 5 mins guaranteed pen against us.
Is there a way to bet on penalties given?
More confident after last three games. Worried about Dean but still hoping for our first win.
CHEESEBURGER OF DEATH
Gunnar Solskaer might as well gun himself in the arse such will be the incessant waves of old gold attacking. All the f**king twat pundits who know absolutely f**k all will be looking at themse6in the mirror and thinking. ” Yes. Actually I am a fuckin twat. And actually Wolves will win this 3-1. . And all the PLASTICS will retire to their armchairs where they always live. And finally happy birthday Twix. Wolves ay we.
I love your musings…..
For the first time this season I am not expecting to get thumped by the opposition. Not expecting to win either with Dean in the middle and Atwell at Stockley park, but shit happens and we have to deal with it.
Hoping for a point despite Mike Dean
I would have gone for a 1-1 but with Mike Dean in charge can’t help but think he will make it the Mike Dean / VAR show. For that reason I see a Man Utd penalty and Fernandes winner ?
Exciting times and a big 3 days ahead for Wolves in the transfer market.
We could enter the international break with no points, having played very well.
The team is picking itself really so more of the same and importance of subs if needing to change the game will prevail.
I thought 4 points from the first 3 games, so I’ll settle for 3 now!
Mike Dean. Enough said! Still, hope springs eternal etc etc.
Wokingham Welsh Wolf
Mike Dean plus Attwell on VAR!
Three stuffy 1-0’s in a row I’m afraid but here’s hoping for better luck for a change.
Ronaldo McDonaldo was never joining the citizens, there is no way Pep would be that stupid to allow a walking ego of that size in to disrupt his dressing room. Ollie on the other hand (who was never as funny as Stan by the way) luckily is that stupid. I could never forgive all those Southerners who welcomed that egotistical twat back with open arms to Old Trafford after ‘Winkgate’. He then walks out on them goes around the globe until reaching his twilight years and heads back to the PL for his last payday (reminiscent of our beloved ‘Golden tit’ era, R.I.P. Sir Jack). The difference for him now is he won’t playing in leagues such as Italy or Spain where Tom Daley would find it hard getting on to the bench such is the quality of diving, the defenders in the greatest league on earth will be salivating at the prospect of sending that tosser into orbit, he will become nothing more than a sick note interspersed with the odd appearance.
Our guys on the other hand are going to go from strength to strength with a young vibrant manager who appears to have a pair. I will always be extremely grateful for what was achieved under NES but we were so stale last season, yes unlucky with injuries but when you have a stubbornness about insisting on a small squad you will eventually reap what you sow. I had mentioned in our 2nd year that our unsung heroes in the medical team were a large reason for our early success. Didn’t think we’d get hit so bad last season but anyone can make mistakes only idiots keep repeating them. So let’s learn let’s get 2 great players for each position which will take several windows and let’s start today by reminding Ollie why he hates playing Wolves, because Wim a big club, Wim Wolves Aye We
It’s in the blood
Don’t know Lord Twix but many happy returns to a kindred spirit
Cheers Norsk Wolf. … appreciate your kind wishes…
Same prediction as the last two matches….just hoping for a change of fortune.
Got to remain positive. Everything points to Wolves scoring at least one.
Didn’t deserve to lose that, but the table does not lie
Well, really it does lie in that we’re not the third worst team in the league, are we ?
I admire your positive approach O&W, but playing well and not taking chances is what it is all about. Plaudits and stats are great, but surely sticking the ball in the net is what it is all about??
Yes, we will pick up points an we will survive, that I am sure…. But, Blackpool looked good, but disappeared without trace.
I have seen the Lows and would like to see the highs too.
I know I will get loads of down votes but, for me I’m fed up of out playing the big 6 and getting nowt. Sorry, but really peed off tonight.
O&W. That’s only decided at the end of the season but roughy now, despite zero points I’d say we’re at worst top ten.
CHEESEBURGER OF DEATH
Dean and Atwell. Manure. Enough said.
Brunos set me shed on fire
Keep the faith
Goals will come.Its a long season and we’ve only just begun.
I like the way Bruno sets us up. Positive and trying to shoot on sight of goal.
No time for doom and gloom.

Just been looking at another forum and someone highlighted that Trincao was wiped out in the follow up after his shot was cleared off the line by Wan Bissacka in the first half. A video was posted and why wasn’t that a penalty? Red card for the Utd player. Where was f***ing VAR again. I know there are conspiracy theories but this is getting beyond a joke now. We are just always on the receiving end of shitty decisions.
I spotted that too Cheesey.. and 100% agree that it should have been a penalty….. he got the ball back into play and was wiped out after the ball was gone….
Like you ….. I can’t believe what I see sometimes…. Can’t deny that Mike Dean and Stuart Atwell are the most useless match officials….EVER.

Oh. Happy birthday by the way chap.
With Pogba’s tackle on Neves, TV showed an angle where it looked superficially like there was no contact.
When shown in slow motion, you can actually see Neves’s shin guard move part way round his leg, proving some contact.
Still images look damning with studs contacting the shin.
So what images does VAR actually look at?
Did they believe there was no contact or minimal contact?
There is no logical explanation for VAR’s decision.
No change there then.
MOTD2 pundits thought it was a foul, apparently Souness said it was “A leg breaker”.
Meanwhile, Atwell was reading his Man U fan annual.
Bwuno needs a new shed
If that’s the way Utd win their games and if that’s the way referees are going to lean on these sort of decisions then I’m proud to be one of the lesser teams (not that we actually are)
I really hope that we don’t as a club aspire to requiring the officials help and that we continue to be an honest club in the way we play the game.
I for one am proud of our players and hopefully we will never need to manipulate to win games
