Watford proved to be a game of welcome firsts.
First league goal of the season. First league goal of the season scored by a Wolves player. First win. First cleansheet. First PL win for Bruno. First appearance for Hwang. First goal for Hwang. The list goes on.
Up until that helping hand to give us the lead at Vicarage Road though, we were treading more familiar territory.
Lots of possession, lots of neat play and lots of glaring opportunities wasted.
What we’re still to establish is whether our continued inability to take those chances was a freak occurrence perhaps related to confidence or something we’re going to have to put up with all season.
Either way, the stats and the naked eye both suggest we’re playing well so plenty of reasons to feel good heading into tomorrow’s early kick-off.
I feel a certain kinship with the Bees, thinking back to that season in League One that saw both clubs promoted after a decent tussle. We had some good battles in the Championship too.
Like others, I’m intrigued by how the club is run and their approach to recruitment and I admire the way they’ve developed in the last decade.
You can’t say they weren’t knocking on the door of the Premier League, so it’s no fluke they’re here and the early signs are they have no intention of making it a short term stay.
Thomas Frank is the latest in a long line of Brentford managers to have done an excellent job and I heard him talking about the need for them to attack and go for the wins.
They’ve got one already after humbling Arsenal on the opening weekend and followed that up with good performances at Villa and Palce to add a couple more points to the early season tally.
It took a last gasp goal to see them fall to their first defeat against Brighton last time out and the stats suggest they were unfortunate to lose.
In Ivan Toney (a player Wolves were heavily linked with in his Northampton days) they’ve got a proven goalscorer and a big personality – two things that are essential for PL survival.
The pacey Bryan Mbeumo is another clear threat, particularly with our pace-less back three pushing further up the pitch and leaving spaces behind.
There are plenty of options for Bruno but I can’t see him changing the team.
Trincao was excellent in the first half at Watford and despite seeing Podence and Hwang both come on to make an impact, I think he’ll retain his place.
It wasn’t one of Adama’s more explosive performances but he still did plenty of good things, particularly when he switched to the right in the second half. Raul similarly got through a decent amount of work and even though the goals aren’t coming, his all-round play was good. I see both of them as nailed on starters.
How nice it is to have a starting XI playing well and both offensive and defensive options on the bench. Injuries could catch us out as the season goes on, but as of now, we’re in a decent place.
Last time out
We won 3-0 at Molineux on our way to promotion back in Jan 2018 with a trademark Ruben Neves free-kick swiftly followed by a great Barry Douglas finish before a late Diogo Jota goal sealed the victory.
It was 0-0 at Griffin Park earlier in the season, which proved to be a meek sign-off at a ground we’ve seen goals galore (for and against) in previous years. They’ve since moved to a nifty new pad called the Brentford Community Stadium.
Well done to Steve, AveburyWolf, Graham from Horsham, The Dodgster, theDOOGooder, WOLFSTROKER, Aquilador, Shaunysilvaballs, pauluswolf, robc306 and Cannock Wolf for all collecting a maximum with an accurate score prediction for the win at Watford.

Up The Wolves!
A draw wouldn’t be disastrous to maintain momentum and although we might consider ourselves favourites, it’s hard to quantify Brentford based on what we’ve seen so far.
As always, the first goal is key and I hope we can get it, exert the same sort of control we managed against another newly promoted team last weekend and win the game.
Raul is overdue a goal and I fancy him to get one tomorrow. If he can do that and the team maintain their level, I do think we’ll win.
I hate these early kick offs. Guess I will be up early tomorrow.
I like Brentford.
Proper club, properly run.
But tomorrow I’ll hate them with a vengeance and expect us to finally click on the goal scoring front. (How many people have said that, how many times this season?).
Same team with Trincao and Adama switching wings to mesmerise the opposition defence.
Let’s have a goal fest!
Well, 2-0 will suffice to begin with.
Preferably both scored by us.
Portuguese men of Wolves
Lots to be optimistic about.
We should build on the confidence boosting performance at Watford and Hope Raul breaks his duck
Bruno is in the sauna
Win for the old gold/orange lol
I have great respect for the Bees as a club.
I’m on a roll here and think we are growing in confidence so it’s another predicted 2-0 win from me.
Clive from Houston
This is one of the mid/bottom of the table teams we HAVE to beat.
No use raising our games to play the so called elite, we need to be at the same high level every week.
Just think, Nuno’s bore ball is coming mid week, what better way to greet him than with two wins on the bounce, as his lot are sure to be demoralized by a second successive defeat, at Chelsea, and their supporter’s knives will be well and truly sharpened!
We squished the Hornets last week, and so we will similarly stomp them other pesky insects, the Bees.
Comfortable win tomorrow, maybe not by four clear goals, but certainly 5-1.
Where’s the official prediction Cliveyboy ….
You’d kick yourself if it ended up .. ‘an Arsenal’
Clive from Houston
Dipshit I am.
The Witley Wanderer
he who hasn’t forgot to put the score down Clive. hasn’t ever predicted a score.
In the murky distance we play Liverpool and Man City in consecutive matches. Between now and then we have 10 winnable matches with perhaps only the West Ham game not falling into the eminently winnable category. Of course, football is not like that and there will surely be pitfalls along the way but Bruno’s team now have an excellent chance to stamp themselves on the season and this division. Starting tomorrow.
Got the first win now let’s go on a run and put a few points on the board 2-1 to the Wolves.
Your prediction looks sound to me Dek, which is why I’m agreeing with it.
With somewhere near to our full squad available we look like a decent outfit. Seems a no brainer to stick to the same starting XI and the bench will again look strong. Podance, The Donk, Hwang, Boly, Ait and Mosquero all pushing for places and we’re good to watch. Feel more confident than I have for a while . . . . . which is always a danger. Nevertheless, going for a resounding victory.
I too hate these early kick offs ! waste of a day once you’ve had your first beer at 11.30 am Still onwards and upwards. If we play the high press intensity football that Bruno has introduced , we should have a comfortable afternoon. No banana skins please , leave that to the likes of Arsenal.
Very effective last week even though there were a few wobbles at the back. I’m very impressed with Sa notwithstanding a few costly errors.
My fleeting worry is that we continue to make lots of chances but don’t take any but I think we will win tomorrow with just one Bee sting.
I am surprised that most people are recommending an unchanged team! I think now that Boly is fit, surely Boly would be better than Saiss, unless there is something on the training ground, or a fitness issue of which we are not aware. Boly v Saiss? Boly everytime!!
I must say I really enjoy the early games. Wake up, have breakfast, and then watch the game at 7:30 am local time! At 9:30 I have the rest of the day free, — either being very happy or very miserable, depending on the result!
CHEESEBURGER OF DEATH
Bees. Did you know there are 270 types of Bee in the UK. I was surprised , because I always thought there were 269. But never mind. Good job I didn’t get asked that when I appeared on Mastermind. Which I didn’t. But if I had of done then I would have failed miserably. The Mining Bee is particularly interesting. Anyone would have thought it went down the mine and got some coal and stuff, but no, it actually lives in a nest in the soil. It has a sharp pointed tongue which may help if it is eating a jumbo hot dog. With onions. Not that I have ever seen a Bee at a hot dog stall. Maybe there will be one tomorrow outside the Molineux. The Yellow Faced Bee has a yellow face and it is a lot more interesting than a woodlice which is grey. But enough of this silly hogwash about Bees and Woodlice. Personally I dislike Brentford because the season before last they needed 1 point from their last 2 games to go up and they lost both which meant Sandwell Town came up instead and inevitably beat us despite being largely rubbish. There will be no heroics from Brentford tomorrow. Thomas Frank might as well turn in to Frank Spencer and go ” oooooooohhhhhh Betty….. the cat has done a whoopsie on the telly” or something like that. Although why your pet cat would ever have a s**t on your TV is beyond me. Perhaps back in the 70’s telly’s were built like small internal lavatories and the cat got confused ? I don’t know. I am no expert on cats going to the toilet. But what will be going down the toilet, apart from Thomas Frank – will be the Brentford defence. Adama and co will simply flush them away. A dizzy Molineux will be rejoicing at being 3-0 up by the 37th minute. And despite a better Brentford showing second half, WWFC coast to a 4-o win. Two from Raul. One from Trincao and another super sub appearance from Hwang. After the game Thomas Frank said ” It’s my first trip to Wolverhampton and I never for a minute expected to turn in to Frank Spencer. It is something I will have to work on. I don’t want to turn in to Reg Varney or someone like that next time I come here” . Bruno Lage said ” Very satisfying. The goals are now flowing like I said they would. I feel sorry for Thomas Frank. If I turn in to Sid James when we go to Brentford I guess I will know how it feels” WWFC 4 Brentford 0.
My jaw aches!
I like Brentford. Bit like Fulham, a ‘proper’ London club. Not at all plastic like some of the others. They always gave us a challenging match in the lower leagues. They deserved their promotion every bit of the way.
Tomorrow I won’t feel so charitable to them. Anything less than a win for us would be a major disappointment. I feel a touch worried that Traore might have gone off the boil once it was clear he wasn’t getting sold to Spurs, but he can’t play every match with the same intensity. Ivan Toney is proving that he would have been a good acquisition for us, and probably for a lot less than we’ve paid for Fabio Silva.
I’m concerned that Silva isn’t getting the minutes in. Is this because Bruno doesn’t rate him highly enough, or is it that we’re playing well without him? A bit of each I think. Silva’s time should come, as Bruno has a great reputation at bringing young talent along.
I reckon 2-0 to us tomorrow
Like many I’m a closet Brentford fan. Loved their old ground which had a pub on each corner. Really enjoyed them sticking it to Arsenal… and they are sure to try to roll us over too.
I see a win but not a goalfest… that will come soon, once Raul has hit the net a couple of times.
Meantime I’ll take a narrow win after an exciting battle with the Bees
Sup sub Hwang to score
Following on from my successful prediction last week ( first one in 12 months!!!)
I am confident of getting it right tomorrow. I expect an entertaining game with us just sneaking it.
Have a lot of time for Brentford and Thomas Frank and get the impression (because of our recent history) that their fans are looking forward to this game. Expect lots of pressing attacking football from both sides, but hope that in converting more of the many chances we’re creating, we nick it.
My glass is half full…. a sell out will mean there will be no lack of encouragement from the stands with myself and the lad included with the many, for the first time this season.
An optimistic attitude is a rare and sometimes foolish emotion when encountering a stronger foe but surely if we continue to create and then convert the opportunities, against a promoted championship team the result is nailed on ?…. Oh if it were so
The Bees keeper seems to be playing out of his skin to date and an organised defence and iconic striker make for a good team watch ….however early tomorrow afternoon a proud upstanding Wulfrunian will be boring his son with ‘Neves can score from inside the box’ ‘Traore is the best ball dribbler in Europe’ ‘Raul back to his best’ and’ This Korean lad can play a bit ‘…..4-0
Well I have to disagree with a couple of bloggers here … I LOVE early starts !! At least I get to bed by midnight instead of a 2am kick off (yep, I’m in OZ 🙂
As for the prediction, well now that we managed to get our first win (and hopefully a surge in confidence), this has got to be a “should win” game. A newly promoted team, return to fitness of most of the squad and new blood up front. I am hoping that beside practising Tik Tok football, Nev, Mautinho and Trincao have been practising their free kicks from just outside the penalty area. With the kind of tricky players in our forward line, I can see a few of those coming up.
Let’s go for another 2-0 win.
Like most I too like the Bees, as Marin said, old ground was always a great place to visit and have a prematch pint.
Should be an entertaining game and we should be going into these games looking for 3 points.
Home win, noisy crowd and happy days.
Graham from Horsham
Really looking forward to this one now we have managed to find the back of the net.
Just need to find a pub with BT Sport whilst holidaying here in Suffolk.
Got to believe that we can put a f ew past the Bees keeper.
Graham was in Huntstaton end of August brilliant it was lovely villages and plenty of pubs would go back never been before.
Hired a great cottage right next to a pub amazing.
Might be some drive from Suffolk though.
We weren’t just linked with Toney, we agreed a fee with Northampton and terms with the player but an issue came up on his medical that stopped the deal!
He’s a real danger though, but with how well we’ve defended so well I’d back us to win this one to nil..
Fair enough. I did say ‘heavily’ linked 😀
Convinced we will follow our first 3 defeats with 3 wins
I like brentford but unfortunately for them , they are going to be hit full force by Bruno ball .
I’m confident we will achieve a solid win
A key early-in-the-season match this. If we are to be setting top eight ambitions then we have to be beating teams like Brentford. Not because Brentford are not decent, they’ve shown some good football so far, but a home match against this kind of inexperienced mid to lower table opposition ought to be a bit of banker.
Hopefully the goals will start flowing after last weekend and we should see them off.
However, from a Prediction League point of view – just as Brentford may well consider a point from this match to be a decent return, it wouldn’t be a disastrous result for us either, as a few other commenters have written already on this very forum. Also I want to see a few more goals going in in the next few matches before I can start to confidently predict some juicier scorelines. So for this one I’m reluctantly going for a low score draw,
If we bring our ‘A’ game, we will beat the Bees- our quality from the bench should swing the game our way, late on. Intriguing, as it seems we play the same style and Toney will be a handful. Hwang to get the winner. Defence likely to remain unchanged until Wednesday when we can expect Willy, Ait, Mosquera and Hoever to start.
Its a “five” from clive and its a five from me !
A first home win to add to the list of firsts of the season would be nice!
Come on Wanderers!
Oh and first on motd
Got a ticket looking forward to this one. We attack and they do to so in theory there should be goals a plenty…….but then as is the case sometimes we could cancel each other out.
Still I’m going for a win for us I’ll be interested to see how Tony gets on and how we handle him he provides a lot of assists as well as goals he be the danger man for them.
I’m going for a win and a clean sheet.
Saiss and Jimenez to score. Coady to give away a penalty.
Several bloggers have written appreciatively about Brentford and I have to say that I have always been grateful to them for selling us the genius who for many years provided such wonderful entertainment for us and so many others – including George Best. I was very touched by this
Given that Peter Broadbent left Brentford for Wolves at the age of 17, this, for me shows real class. Thank you gentlemen.
I’m not sure about tomorrow, are we ready to start scoring freely or do we need another week? It also seems that there is a real possibility of them scoring, so am going for a clear win in a game with a decent number of goals.
Sorry folks, the link should be ..
Expect it to be tight. Strangely last season with nunos counter attacking tactics I would have expected a win here (similar to leeds). But with Lage it’s a bit harder to call. I’m going for a score draw!
Wolves Fan In Liverpool
I will be on the train for 9.05am. I expect nothing then a glorious mid afternoon lesson for Brentford. We have now found the net. Have a solid starting 11. We should be running wild tomorrow, against a team that yes is there to get points but are no where near the calibre of wolves.
If we concede a goal I will be shocked. Seen a stat the other day. There’s only 2 teams that take less shots then us per game this season..I don’t think Brentford have it in them.
I notice that the opposition have not got one post taking them to win, so far. As I lacked the courage last week to predict a Wolves win, and as it’s early days, I’m going for an away win to get me back in the prediction league race. (Or fall further behind.)
Fall further behind I’m afraid…
It’s very interesting the love that a few of us have for Brentford…. But not me.
I’ve had a dislike for them ever since Mark Warburton was the manager and ungraciously didn’t acknowledge that they were well and truly Whoooped by us in that DIV 1 promotion tingler of a game at Griffin Park…. So no… I’m no admirer of them.
Tomorrow will see the BrunoBall style of high press completely overwhelm the Bees.
Very interesting will be their high octane game versus ours and when the explosion occurs Adama will have walked from the halfway line to score the final goal of the day…. and send the BEES home honeyless.
Looking forward to meeting some blogger mates tomorrow too..
Neves, Traore and Jimi x2 will have me droooling.
I feel that anyone who sees Brentford as the divisions whipping boys are sadly mistaken and we are in for a sterner test than we had against Watford. Toney and Mbeumo are a dangerous front two and they have height and organisation throughout the team. So I will be overjoyed with three points should we get them.
I think we will though.
Need now to keep the momentum going – apart from Boly for Saiss (or potentially the new boy) I would keep the same team as last week.
I see 3 pts here and hopefully another clean sheet.
Another win on the cards
Brentford deserved the promotion & I wish them luck this season – except when they play us obviously.
Home crowd behind us & we should hopefully win.
Balsall Heathen Wolves
Good to see Brentford in the Prem and i hope they stuff all the big six over the season but tomorra we’re gonna give em a beating. Gotta be optimistic after last weeks win esp with Hwang finding the net and Podence looking sharp, good options on the bench if our main men are misfiring again but Bruno needs to bring them on early enough to make the difference if need be. Our stats are brilliant even if did we incur three losses, hopefully that’s behind us and we’re gonna kick on with the scores starting to reflect the numbers. I think we’ll overun Brentford and our defence will be too much for them to break down. As much as they play attacking football, they’ve only scored 3 goals so far, on the same level they’ve only conceded 2 it has to be said but we are on the ascent and they are gonna get punished (if i have to read the word profligacy in a Wolves match review once more…..). COYW!!
I am often wrong though.
Looking forward to seeing the Bees but hope we can get a win. I’ll go for a 3-1 win knowing anything can happen. They play good football and have produced some good pl recently.
Wokiingham Welsh Wolf
Hope you’re right Debenham. Only going for the same prediction because the majority seem to be going for 2-1.
Brentford are a well run club with a good manager. So are Wolves – the main difference is Wolves have a better starting eleven and greater squad depth.
Jiminez is slowly but surely getting back to his best and during Hwang’s brief appearance I thought I saw an understanding developing between them.
Hoping for a win but it won’t be easy.
Don’t think our last goal was a freak occurence as previously mentioned. It was eventually going to happen. Goals will come from this team, no doubt about it. Even though we are playing big heads with lots of money to throw around, Wolves will rule with the attitude and skills that our players are showing. What a brilliant manager we are so lucky to have acquired.
London wolves loyal
I’m joining the Brentford love in as I lived close to their ground for quite a few years . Used to drink with a few of their chaps in the Tankerville . Pubs gone now .
But not tomorrow!
The Witley Wanderer
Tomorrow at ten sharp Matt. Lynch Gate defo still open. Safe trip my friend.
Everyone seems very confident of a home win. Expectation is high because it’s “only Brentford”. Overconfidence is getting in the way here just because we beat Watford. Brentford have a style of play which could be well suited to the Premier League and Toney is dangerous. Mick tried to sign him for us a while back.
We will have to be good to beat them and I truly hope we will but don’t be surprised if we don’t.
If McCarthorse tried to sign him, thank dog he didn’t, coz he would have gone downhill under that management team!
Didn’t ‘McCarthorse’ get us promoted? Relegated aswell, I know, but he was hardly provided with the necessary financial backing was he? Not particularly a fan of his but I do appreciate his efforts.
It was Kenny Jackett who tried to sign him, not McCarthy.
We had agreed a £500k fee but he failed the medical.
Hope Mosquera gets a few minutes
Seen Brentford twice this season. Solid front and back and will make Wolves pay if loads of chances go begging.
Brunoball finally yielded the three points it has deserved in arguably all the other league games we have played in. The subs played a role in getting us over the line last week and it was good to see the strength of the bench. Pick up another win tomorrow then we could be too half
Expecting the same team with subs impacting again.
Really looking forward to this game and hoping the run of good form will continue.
I’ll stick with the same 3-0 I forecast last week.
King of the cowshed (Carl you're still my number one)
You wait 5 1/2 hours for a goal then two come along. Good old OG, our highest scorer.
Now lads, let’s get some proper goals with the Mol chorus behind you.
Don’t underestimate them bees, though, they’ve been a good side for a few years now. Should have been promoted season before but bottled it and lost the last three on the trot so the shite came up instead.
Time we showed or dominant for in the scoreline, I wish them well and hope they can stay up but hoping for some goals this week. Wolves 3 – 0
Hoping for a good win
If we play how we did in the opening two home games we’ll win. Expecting Brentford to be tricky opponents but we should have enough.
I’ve been reminiscing tonight about the Express Tavern on Kew Bridge Road, not far from the Brentford’s old stadium. I was there that Friday night Wolves played Cardiff, saw off two late penalties, and virtually clinched promotion to the Premier League. The beer tasted fantastic that evening: yes, count me in on the Brentford love in.
I’m looking forward to our early start today, but with a touch of trepidation. Total respect to Brentford but we should win this – shouldn’t we?
We should be beating Brentford but they have a very good defence. Hoping we can break through…
Yep, 2-1 sounds about right to me. I am excited to watch the game – no nerves – that was last season’s emotion. This season, the emotion is anticipation. Bring it on!
Expecting a win, but not without some nervy moments. Would love to see a Traore assist for a Jimi goal.
Two quality clubs going at it. Wolves prevail.
After watching Brentford against Brighton they created loads of chances but couldn’t score, sound familiar? If we continue to play the way we have been I think we’ll have too much for them. Raul to score!
Another great post !
In the Premier League, despite the same number of points up for grabs, some games just feel more important than others. Today feels like one of those games.
We return to Molineux for the first time in almost three weeks, where, against a star studded Man Utd, a clear foul wasn’t given, and our profligacy in front of goal was cruelly punished. We deserved something out of that game, just as we had v Spurs and Leicester.
Last week’s Watford win; well as you pointed out, that was a first for many reasons. First goals of the season, first Premier League win for Bruno, first goal for our new forward, Hwang Hee-chan. First 3 points on the board.
Today however, it feels pivotal. Can we burst Brentford’s bubble ? They are now the new kids on the block and I suspect many supporters “second team”. We are now the established Premier League side. The way they dismantled Arsenal in the first game of the season, and seeing what it meant to their supporters won over many neutrals. No egos there. A difficult team to beat, despite being “newbies”.
Wolves – we should have enough quality to beat them. Our defence has been solid, having conceded just 3 goals in 4 games, including a penalty and a goal where play should have been stopped for a booking. Coady has marshalled them well.
Neves has been back to his best in these first few games, commanding midfield, breaking up play and with distributiion of the highest quality. Thank goodness he chose to stay. We would not be the same without him.
Moutinho has rediscovered his undoubted ability and class, fitting seamlessly besides his Portuguese compatriot and we have the enviable attacking front line of Traore, Trincao and Jimenez.
With Marcal and Semedo providing attacking threat and overlaps on the wings, and a bench that includes our new South Korean hero of Watford, Podence and Silva, there are just a couple of prayers we need answering.
Firstly, that we put our shooting boots on today and start converting this season’s transformed and improved possession and shots into goals and points.
Secondly, and more specifically, that we see the most lethal Premier League partnership of two seasons ago start to click. Because that’s what we had. That’s how good they were. Jimenez and Traore. They’d worked out how to be devastating in attack together and were instrumental in our success of the 2019/20 season. How great would that be to quieten the growing Traore dissenters and to see our Mexican Marauder back where he belongs; scoring goals and winning games !
Just about covers everything Mutt1eigh. Reet good post.
Went to see Wolves v Brentford in ’85 when we were free falling through the divisions. First game of the season and you could tell we were in trouble because there was no team picture in the programme! Lost 2:1. Highlight of the day was walking into a pub with me mate before the game to be greeted by the comment: “The Wolves are here.” The fag machine wasn’t working, but the landlord kindly gave me his packet of gaspers – he must have felt sorry for us. I think we’re win quite handsomely today…
Reasonably confident we can get a win, hoping for a comfortable one.
Continue the good work from last week
Cannot for the life of me understand the almost sexual love in for another football team!!!
Every opponent deserves respect when we play them , but come on, favourite second team, love their old ground, etc. etc.?????
Many, many years ago, they had a survey questinnaire thingy in the programme, asking our regular first team players a load of feel good questions, and one of them was “ who is your fave other team”
All the players, except one, spouted some other first division team.
Only The Doog, in his forthright fashion, went against the trend, and with which I agree 1000%, said
I want every match, except involving Wolves, to end in a draw, thus giving minimum points to the other teams, and maximum to us as we win all our games!!
Its 4.30 in the morning over here, two hours to kick off, my pre match pint is a coffee, can’t you lot tell I’m bored!!!
CHEESEBURGER OF DEATH
Come on Clive. I thought a hardcore Black Country chap like you would be on the lash by now. Sipping coffee?
Black Country Cloive
Gotta dtive later, cor get sloshed, yet!!
See, coffee messes you up as well!
Hey Clive. Hope you’re fine and dandy. Or at least dandy.
When I watch a game that doesn’t involve Wolves, no matter domestic, European or international, I normally nominally support one team or ‘tuther.
Perhaps the Bees’ appeal is simply their fairytale rise to the Prem. small unassuming club etc etc. And it reminds us a little bit about how we felt each time we made that climb up the ladder. “We’re on our way back …..”.
And that’s a nice feeling.
Enjoy the game !
Same again please
Keep up the good work, progression is all I ask.
Bruno needs defend defend defend
Well that is half of my prediction complete.
Now for the other half.
CHEESEBURGER OF DEATH
Well that was fucking shit.
That waas really poor; Annoying tactics from Brentford but they deserved the win. Neves seemed to be on his own in central midfield and I felt really sorry for the gut. Dendonker needed to come on at some time imo. I hope to see Boly and Mosquero getting a good run out on Wednesday. We’ve got to play two up front and Jimenez is still off the pace but getting there bit by tiny bit.
Oh dear. Guess we were all a bit over excited with the win at Watford. Shouldn’t be surprised The Bees no mugs and the new kids on the block.
Just extremely frustrating and disappointing tbh.
On to Wednesday.
I blogged at the end of last season we should go for Ivan Toney……he was outstanding today held the ball up well brought players in to the game scored and made Kilman look silly which he was instead of staying on his feet he lunged at Toney with a half hearted attempt to tackle him he should at least to him out a took one for the team.
Frustrating that Raul is so passive and on the odd occasion he did start to mark a run into the box the ball went backwards or side wards. Adam is back to his old self doing the hard work and then instead of hitting hard and low into the box so some one can stick a leg out he balloons it high over everyone.
This is a massive wake up call…..I was talking about top eight or higher how deluded was on on this showing wil are in for a season of struggle four defeats out of five is relegation form and you can dress it up all you want but that’s a fact.
Raul needs either to come out the team or a partner up front to help him out midfield today was all over the shop Trinco needs to realise he is in the Premier League where you have to get stuck in the tricks are nice to watch but he needs to acert himself.
Make no bones about it Brenford were the better team we play some lovely football backwards and side wards but they moved the ball quicker forward with more invention and purpose. That was a classic away performance from Brenford and they deserved there win.
Only the keeper and may be Adama come away with any credit today.
If Bruno didn’t know it he knows now he has a job on his hands.
Yes you are bang on there. But thought Podence and Hwang looked good as well. As nearly cost us a goal , as did Neves. Ultimately beaten by a better side, who had the measure of us completely. You have to be worried about a team who can’t score or win at home. Long way to go but I’m worried.
You make some good points Paul apart from the Toney comments. There was no prospect of getting him.
Every player has there price……it’s just Jeff won’t pay it. Even Jeff has said that himself.
Toney is the type of forward we should have gone for big, quick, psychical can hold the ball up bring players in that type of player has chained us over the years Abraham, Milosavic at Fulham we always struggle against these type of strikers.
At the end of the day if you are not willing to pay the asking price you won’t get the player.
Deja vu – Sir Jack towards the end and miserly Morgan / miserable Moxey throughout.
I mean the keeper Jose! Dribbling in the box wonder if that will go down in the stats as a successful dribble.? We’re top of that league at least with Adama and Trincao our best dribbles or dribblers! No no doubt about it Wolves abject today. It has to get better soon and quick.
Definite whiff of complacency/ arrogance running through this thread prior to the match. Pride etc. Are Brentford the new Wolves? Bruno must be angry tonight- looked like he had a bee in his bonnet earlier.
Don’t think it was arrogance to be fair.
Just optimists we are.
Dreadful ,all of it.
Hope it’s just a one off.
Needs sorting and fast.
You’re right, I am just hurting like all of us.
Bruno needs a cattle prod
Was pretty dreadful to be honest.
Not what I expected
I am back home. Apologies to a few bloggers, but I had to cut away as I could not discuss what we just saw. Thanks for the coffee. Chat later!
King of the cowshed
They stick five blokes in midfield and we just don’t know what to do. I’ve seen it before …. and OG is still our top scorer!
Think I’ll drop out of the prediction league, can’t go through a season predicting defeats, too painful.
Serious problems on top now
It can only be down to lack of purchases ..wolves misery is back..
As for the future ..ffs it doesn’t bear thinking about..
Jeff Shi sack yourself
You asked for the change! Your fault.
