I’m looking forward to the break.
The season has been traumatic and it feels like a pause suits Wolves probably more than any other club.
Lopetegui can settle in, we can get some players back (hopefully) and by the time it all kicks off again perhaps we’ll be in a better place?
We have the small matter of taking on the league leaders before signing off, which promises more trauma but it’s also an opportunity to raise our game and finish on a serious high.
Let’s get after them lads.
The Gunners really got their recruitment right over the summer but it was clear they were already building up nicely last season.
Even though it fell apart at the end, mainly due to injuries, you could see it was coming together for Mikel Arteta.
They’re organised, they play with intensity and they have that quality in the final third to open defences. With a bit more squad depth now they’re a serious proposition.
Title contenders? I think you have to say yes. We’re nearly halfway now and they’ve answered plenty of questions – most recently seeing off Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last weekend.
Getting knocked out of the League Cup by Brighton on Wednesday probably wasn’t in the script but that was always going to be a difficult tie, particularly with a shadow team deployed.
With Man City getting the early kick-off, they’ll know what’s required to maintain their position at the top and I expect them to throw everything at us from the first kick.
There are a few unknowns ahead of Steve Davis’ final team selection.
I believe Nelson only had a one-game ban so will be eligible for selection. I’d pick him on the basis we might see a response and in reality we may not have a better option anyway. I’m not sure either Bueno or Ait-Nouri can play on the right and Jonny hobbled off against Leeds suggesting he’s probably out of the equation.
If Matheus Nunes has recovered from his shoulder problem, I’d put him in to try and match their energy in midfield. I was hoping he’d at least be among the substitutes in midweek but hopefully he’s being saved for this and not just saving himself for the World Cup.
I’d play Guedes through the middle and keep Traore in the side just so it gives Arsenal something to think about with running in behind.

Up The Wolves!
I want to believe, I really do, but we still look flimsy in both boxes so I’m not sure how we’ll cope against a high-flying Arsenal side.
Their greatest obstacle is probably complacency but I think Arteta is a good enough coach to demand they keep their foot to the floor. That being said, a few will probably be thinking about the World Cup so it could rob them of intensity. We’ll see.
On the plus side, I do think Guedes and Podence are both looking sharp so if our midfield can offer some protection and everyone lifts their game there might be some hope.
Like you Thom, I’d love to believe we can pull off an upset too. But Arsenal look a serious proposition this season and I expect they’ll make light work of us. I agree that there’s cause for cautious optimism now – Lopetegui will effectively have a pre-season to get to grips with the squad, his coaching team are in situ, and the transfer window opens shortly after play resumes post World Cup. The League Cup drawn has been kind to us too, so maybe another Wembley trip beckons? OK, I’m getting carried away now!
Let’s get this one out the way and hope for a much improved second half to the season.
Have you forgotten Gillingham beating us when we were in a lower division – resulting in the quick firing of who was it ? the then manager. I had the misfortune to be there and had a premonition that this was going to be a difficult game on seeing their little ‘stadium’. At least I believe they’re coming to Molineux this time.
I’ve also had the misery of going along to first Highbury and later their present stadium, to see Arsenal make short work of our dispirited team.
Hopefully our team will at least be trying tonight, if only to impress our new manager.
Not sure about playing Nunes on the right or even in a midfield three. I think he would be most effective just behind a front two or in a free role but that means a big change.
Pleased the break is almost here and Loppy is here.
Though we were fortunate not to concede against Leeds.
Don’t see it happening again.
Obviously this is going to be a tough match but there may be a few positives to cling to. We have been finally scoring a few goals recently – 5 in the last 5 games, Arsenal haven’t been scoring that many recently (Forest excepted) and maybe some of the biggest stars might just be starting to think about getting on the plane to Qatar uninjured. If we can organise ourselves defensively and Semedo manages to avoid imploding, then maybe, just maybe, we can nick it.
Optimistic a Wolves win 2-1 to the Wolves Thomas Semedo is banned.
Served it in the Leeds game
Strangely despite our league position the win against Leeds coupled with JL coming in seems to be have injected a bit of positivity around the club. With this in mind I expect us to put up a good fight but sadly still come up short against Arsenal.
I have no doubt after the break we will look a different team and hopefully pull away from trouble
That should be Dek.
Sutton Coldfield wolf
Thomas, Semedo can’t feature as he is banned I think- thank god! With Jonny likely injured , it may well be ait nouri, although may be even lembikiska. Either way I think we will get turned over comfortably but we have shown some determination in recent games so here’s hoping for a point.
I had understood it was only a one game ban for Semedo in which case he would be available for selection. Whether he should be picked is another question!
Sutton Coldfield wolf
Ok thanks Manxwolf for clarifying I thought a straight red was automatic 3 game ban
London wolves loyal
Got to ask you Manx …are you TC ? Who I always used to bump into on trains ?
Formation looks as good as it can be. Unfortunately, I don’t think we will be able to cope with their speed.
Can I just remind whovere it is that is giving negative votes to whoever predicts a Wolves loss, that this is a PREDICTION league, not a WHAT WE HOPE AND PRAY THE SCORE WILL BE league. We all wish that Wolves would win every single game (preferably, by a Clive score), but reality and fantasy are 2 different things. So stop being childish.
Unless we can find a way to make a back five work I think we’re in for a torrid time.
Can’t see us scoring either so personally I’ll be glad to see the back of this one and look forward to a fresh start at Christmas.
The table doesn’t lie and a comfortable win for Arsenal beckons. We are not resilient or battle hardened enough to resist the sustained unpicking of our defence either playing 4 or 5 at the back.
I hope we don’t concede early as against Man City where we never gave ourselves a chance. But- with the new boss watching and future places up for grabs for the youngsters….Arsenal will be frustrated by a bottom team sometime this season, why not us?
CHEESEBURGER OF DEATH
Jesus is up front for Arsenal. And they will need him. We have had one or two chaps called Jesus over the years but they were never any good. Apparently the one Jesus we had now owns a golf course in Scotland or something which is all well and good. He might be able to go 18 rounds with Rory Mcilroy but he was f**kin useless for WWFC and as far as i’m concerned he can stick his 12 iron up his arse. Sideways. And golf is rubbish anyway. Lot’s of people with sticks hitting a ball around a field and a load of folks in kagools up in a temporary stand getting lashed by horizontal rain at Carnoustie. It’s just rubbish. They would be better off in the pub having a karaoke singing Neil Diamond or Meat Loaf. Anyway. Tomorrow is a night and when it will finally all click in to gear in front of the watching J-Lo. It will be a ‘Is Bob Wilson in goal ?’ esq thrashing by 5-1 and the gunners will be left in a smouldering pile of dung as the rejuvenated Guedes lays seige to the goal. With a couple of 25 yard smashers from Ruben thrown in for good measure. A great way to sign off for the world cup and before you know it along comes 20th December and Gillingham rock up for another thrashing. The only way is up and it starts tomorrow. WWFC 5 Bob Wilson 1.
Thankfully Lopetegui has arrived and the season now starts after the World Cup.
Hopefully Shi will back him in January to bring in the players he wants and to mold his side.
As it is Arsenal will be far too strong for our injury hit. non-scorers and I expect to be taking the long drive home in the dark in silence tomorrow.
I see that this post is making a bid to get an entry in The Guinness Book of Records for the most dislikes.
I still don’t understand why somebody hits the dislike button on someone giving their opinion on a Blog.
If someone disses me, or the PMDG’er, or a mate, I will dislike their comment.
If someone voices a different opinion from mine regarding football, I will read it, and move on.
This is because I’m a reasonable and sensitive man…
…And I’m always bloody right! So I don’t care what anyone else says!!!
I fully expect us to lose tomorrow but am looking forward to a positive performance and a lot of fight from our lads.
And I will continue to make the 250 mile round trip to every ‘Home’ game as long as I can drag my ageing body into ‘The Doog’. (Sue’s Jeep).
Dislike that if you want.
Not sure what your problem is. Sure it is your opinion but people can disagree or dislike it.
You don’t want to know what my problem is mate! It would take much too long.
Sure you can disagree.
If you disagree, disagree… in words. An anonymous dislike click just smacks a little of, at best not being to articulate an argument, at worst, cowardice.
Just my opinion, dislike it if you want to.
I always like your posts Doog. Yours are one of the ones I always look out for. And if I disagree I’ll scroll by (can’t think I’ve ever disagreed though), and if I really like it and agree, I’ll put the thumbs up.
Some posters are on a different planet, I’m not even sure they watch the same sport never mind the same team. And I’ll disagree with them and tell them why.
But like you, at least I’d say something not just dislike with a thumbs down.
Nice car btw. Has it got black accessories to match the goldish colour?
Cheers Telford Wolf.
The car has a black interior and a Wolf’s head sticker in the rear window.
As you might imagine it’s never driven through sandwell.
I liked your post DOOG …
Because it was Sue in the picture… sprawling like a chamois leather over the bonnet of that love machine of yours…
I’m collecting my fair share for my rather bleak prediction Doog but broad shoulders n all that!
Anyway I’ll be delighted if I have to eat my words.
Wish we could just skip past this one…
Wokingham Welsh Wolf
Me too mate
James Fisher Wolf
Thanks Thomas, your suggested team seems logical enough, although I would consider Lemikiska; even if Semedo is available. Given the youngsters performance and post match comments he seems to have the quality and attitude that Bueno has demonstrated. For me it’s Nunes or Podence but not both. Conor Ronan should start in a midfield four in my opinion (we need to protect the defence better than we have been doing) and play with a front two of Guedes and Adama Traore, with Adama playing more centrally but basically given freedom to keep their defence thinking and guessing in any way he sees fit. Our back four experiment has proved problematic, but the defenders aren’t solely to blame and they need better protection from midfield. Any match is winnable but avoiding defeat and a goal or two would be another step in the right direction. Have faith.
After a win against Leeds and Semedo back on the bench for selection… and… J-Lo taking on his first game, I’m actually feeling more optimistic than I have for a little while.
My prediction league position is shot, so I’m sticking out for another Traore whiz bang goal and maybe a Neves effort to get us back on track.
Come On You Wolves!
Ah, I see he isn’t in charge, but watching. In any case, the players might be charged up to impress him… my prediction still stands.
Can’t see anything other than a defeat here. After the midweek win, let’s hope we at least give them a game and push them all the way. As Thomas points out, we’ve been woeful in both boxes lately, which is why we are rightly joint bottom. At least we’ve got a potential cup quarter final to look forward to – and hopefully much more in 2023. We’ll all be glad to see the back of 2022 from a Wolves pov.
A different team after the break.
Got to hope. Maybe this time
London wolves loyal
I too shall be making my 250 mile found trip and I shall be taking my youngest son to his first ever game . It’s a special day for me , leave a little space at the beer table Witley..he’s only 7
I love it at the wolves under the food lights, packed house everyone lubricated . Let’s give these big time Charlie’s a proper wolves welcome !
CMON ME BABBIES
london wolves loyal
Remember going in the seventies we beat them 5-2 I think, in the snow oh for a repeat of that
Sorry to correct you mate .. it was a 5-1 …
And was Clive’s signature scoreline… Bless him.
I too was the ere with her ladyship… got caught up in the snow .. but heyho Bob Silson and the Gooners had their comeuppance…
‘Twas a lovely afternoon that day …
Waggy scored a real Worldie.
And I got out of Christmas shopping.
A perfect afternoon.
Cutting back from the right wing, left foot thunderbolt? I was in the North Bank ‘those WERE the days, my friend, we thought they would never end’
Those poor Gooners…
Bob Wilson in goal .. Pat Rice, Frank McClintock .. Charlie George,
Lovely afternoon watching the ‘double’ winners getting clobbered…
Five goals in twenty second half minutes .. (53 to 73 mins).
Best not compare to the current goals per game statistic..
We could win but I suspect they will be too good for our lads in defence at present. Good attitude in the last two games so we’ll done to all concerned. The need to impress Julen will help hopefully; seems to have done with Guedes. Lembikisa to start for me.
The Witley Wanderer
Matt no problem on the seating arrangements a seven year old Wolves surporter can have my chair at the table, with a large Coke.
Safe journey , see you there.
London wolves loyal
Lol .. he’s going to be cozy tucked amongst all those big old geezers …
Even before Lopey’s crew arrived I had detected green shoots of recovery, even though we lost to a very good Brighton team . The scrappy win against Leeds was more evidence of recovery and also self-belief. Steve Davis has been instrumental in pulling the squad in the same direction. The gods have been smiling on us. The sequence of home matches has also helped. Tomorrow the players will be playing to impress Lopey. They know he is the real deal. He’ll be watching from the stands but I’m sure his presence will inspire and motivate.
I wouldn’t be surprised at an upset tomorrow. I’ve had a couple of cheeky bets. 5/1 the win and 10/1 with both teams to score. Wolves to wing it 2-1.
BTW, I was at Stamford Bridge last Sunday and thought Arsenal were very skillful and very good. Chelsea got quite physical in response. I think Wolves’ less physical approach will be a better match for Arsenal. Just as well Costa can’t play!
A good effort is expected but not necessarily a good result.
Lopo will be in the stands so we should get some form of a Manager’s bounce. I believe only 3 of our players are going to the WC so the others should not be directly affected.
The table does not lie and the stronger team on paper should win, but paper tigers are not always victorious.
I think I we will lose unfortunately, but am quietly confident that we will at least score!
This game is the beginning of our revival!
I think arsenal will overload are right hand side given are frailties over the past weeks ,whoever plays there will probably get booked in the first half an hour then treading on eggshells for the remainder, and remember arsenal do like to get people booked,one good omen for the game is I can’t watch it so points are possible
My gunners mate in London just emailed to ask how the hell we got here? I’m thinking I’ll forward BOG’ ‘s excellent commentary on the past 4 years
Mate has let me convert our annual. Twenty quid bet on relative league position to its quits if we don’t get relegated
I’m getting more hopeful by the day
The Gillingham draw says the gods are on our side
Tomorrow I’d play all the kids plus Neves and Adama and Podence and tell them their lives depend on 95 minutes of battling energy … treat it like we’re a League One team in a cup tie
Yes we’ll lose but it will be heroic , not inept
Concede less than three and it would be a shock result
The shedzebo is eating paella
I think Arse nil are playing like the wolves should be and wolves are playing like a 1982 wolves side so I’ll go for a wolves win.
the shedzebo is eating paella
They are not the Invincibles so are due an upset. Let it be Saturday evening. Please.
Well I can dream!
The Witley Wanderer
Dreaming is for free Deptford.
Big night under lights, we have done this before. COYW.
Well, it seems that no-one has suggested that this game is a ‘free hit’ because it isn’t. Arsenal are a very good team because Arteta has had time to mould them into one but they are certainly no world beaters as PSV confirmed only a couple of weeks ago. Is it really over 42 years since I sat in the Eindhoven home end watching Rafael Villazan give away a suspect penalty? If only they had VAR then.
Unfortunately, despite Arsenal having some frailties, our defence has then in boatload at the moment and try as I might I just can’t see us keeping them at bay or us scoring.
the shedzebo though arsenil was in woolwich
Over 40 years ago?
I thought we’d hit the big time when we signed him.
….well you never know
Reasons to be cheerful !
On the eve of our home game against the league leaders, I must confess to feeling more optimistic than I have done since February.
Julen Lopetegui and his team are here.
League Cup last 16 & face Gillingham.
We have a “free shot”against Arsenal. No pressure.
We have the bizarre luxury of a mini- preseason because ……
The manager and entourage have 6 weeks to settle in to their new surroundings.
And 6 weeks to work with the remaining squad.
He will have money to spend this January.
We have Jimenez, Neto, Chiquinho, Kalajdzic and Costa all returning.
Some fantastic young talent coming through – Bueno, Campbell, Sarkic, Hodge, Ronan, Boubacar and Lembikisa.
You never know – maybe Ruben will stay now JL has landed ?
The future is bright !
Excited about the dawn of the Lopetegui era and with the cup draw against the Gills, have ridiculously started to dream of the outside chance of future Wembley glory. Would love to stuff it to all my Arsenal mates, so just can’t bring myself to predict the inevitable crushing defeat that might improve my prediction league position. UTW
I was just thinking, it has been 48 years since I have last seen Wolves play! The only time! At Highbury, Arsenal vs Wolves, in August 1974. We may have lost 5-2 but I was ecstatic as I saw all of my Wolves heroes of the day– Doogan, Richards, Wagstaff, Bailey, Parkes, I think Munro and all of the others. I remember my Dad taking us as young teenagers. Seated in front of us was an Arsenal supporter who had this two feet tall, top hat with Arsenal colors, and other Arsenal stuff stuck to it. I told my Dad “that hat is blocking my view” to which my Dad responded “Ssshhhhuuuu, he might be one of those hooligans that we read about, keep quiet!” Fortunately, he removed his hat before the game started, or my dad might have had to defend me after I would have cuffed it off his head! Maybe I was the hoolgan! !I
Never liked Arsenal then, and still don’t like them!!
Life in the Tropics!!
I was going to suggest you come over and watch a game St Kitts. But thinking about it, I’ll come to the Caribbean instead and we can watch it on a live stream, sitting on a beach, with something nice and cool!
Yes Telford, your description of watching the Wolves game in St.kitts is pretty accurate! It’s all good!
Definitely seeing improvements over last few games. Think Arsenal will be too strong for us but you never know. Upsets so happen so….
A little ditty from the seventies
Are we f++k
We’ll stay up
And win the cup
La la la la la la la la laaaah
Enough of that, what a weekend we are going to have, rugby, cricket and football.
Iv cleared a couple of hours of my Sunday in order to get my Xmas pressies, a little early I know, but I’m going to use my winnings from Sportsbet .
6-1 for a home win against a team in the same league is just so generous, thank you betting company peeps and happy Xmas.
I watched arsenal win the top four playoffs against Chelsea last weekend and celebrated accordingly, then arteta announced that they are title contenders, oh how I laughed, he has just set this game up beautifully.
I don’t usually like the late kickoff but a new head coach, a lubricated molineux and arsenal having already added the 3 points to their tally has heightened my anticipation, come on in mr arteta and have a seat , enjoy the game!
We have our number one target for head coach , hopefully now, Beale will cut out his silly interviews explaining why he couldn’t take the wolves job ( was he even offered it?) and concentrate on stopping qpr sliding down the league.
Come on you mighty wolves
I think it was very noble of him not to take the job.
It would have been like Nuno leaving us to take a Premier League job his first season here.
So are you saying that he WAS offered the job ?
We’ve had some great games against Arsenal in recent years and this one has the makings of another. New manager here watching the game, renewed optimism on the pitch and in the stands. Gooners flying. Lowly Wolves gonna clip their wings. Why not. UTW
This game is as tough as they come and it’s hard to see us scoring or keeping a clean sheet.
Ah well, we have to get it out of the way I suppose……
Not expecting much tomorrow. Bob Wilson will have a blinder in goal, and George Graham and Don Howe will have them set up for a boring 1-0 win. If we can noble Ian Wright early on, we might have a chance. We could slip their dressing room with a hogshead of Banks’s though, since any beer around Highbury can’t be up to much. If Adams is playing, at least he’ll be plastered before kick off.
A brown envelope for George Graham should do the trick.
Interesting to read the comments about famous victories from the past.
I’m able to go back further still and have happy memories of 7/3/59 When Arsenal came to Molineux for what “Wolves on this day” describes as “a top of the table clash” only to be beaten 6-1. Wolves scorers were Broadbent 2. Deeley 2, Lill and Murray. Playing for Arsenal that day were two Wolves managers to be – Tommy Docherty and John Barnwell. I particularly remember TD ending up sitting on the floor watching Peter Broadbent – who had just ghosted past him – disappearing into the distance.
I was also at Highbury on 22/4/61 when we won again- this time by 5-1. Barnwell was playing again and their goal was scored by Jackie Henderson who later played for us. Our goals were scored by Stobart 2, Broadbent, Mason and Murray. “Wolves on this day” describes it like this; “Whilst having fewer chances than their opponents, the Wolves strikers gave their Arsenal counterparts a lesson in finishing …… Bobby Mason’s close range finish in the 69th minute meant that Wolves had scored 100 league goals for a fourth successive season, a feat that remains unique in English football [Book published 2009, not sure about 2010 to present]
This was the period when over-enthusiastic celebrations were getting the game a bad name and Stan Cullis stopped any celebrations at all. The Arsenal supporters were very puzzled , at times not knowing whether the goal had been given. It was great to tell them – this was pre-segregation – they’re just doing their jobs, there’s nothing unusual about scoring a goal, they get lots.
Dare I say “Those were the days”? I certainly enjoyed them and look back on them with great affection.
COYW, let’s show Julen what we’re made of tomorrow
More in hope than expectation I’m going for a – very unexpected – Clive!! 🙂
Hope the girls win the rugby over here and the mighty wanderers get something otherwise I’ve got a week of kiwis piss poor excuse for banter
Got to hate the prospect of our RB up against Martinelli
But J Lo hopefully will get a good send off for Davis
I’d love to see us beat Arsenal but cannot see it happening. I hate predicting a wolves loss but arsenal are just too good for us at the moment.
Teams always seem to perform poorly when their new manager is watching in from the stands…
Julien will see that we let in way too many soft goals.
Soft goals? I think he knows about them already. Didn’t we send him some video nasties?
Wish I could be there tonight. I’ve heard that Lopetegui will get a big on-pitch welcome before the match. Lot of razzamatazz. Let’s hope it inspires the players, I’m optimistic it will. No self-respecting player should fail to up his game tonight. That’s all we want, maximum performance from all.
It doesn’t seem that long ago we were celebrating a Premier League double over this lot.
They still owe us a striker, but 3 points will have to do for now.
Steve Davis is playing Traore A with sensible regularity. Others are finding their feet.
World cup looming, new manager in the stands, the Molly lights, all conspire to deliver an unlikely victory. I love football.
1 lv & COYW.
As Thomas stated, the break can’t come any quicker. Let the new coach settle in, players get their heads screwed back on properly and we’ll see about avoiding the drop after.
Good luck Steve Davis
A tough match tonight but hopefully the green shoots of recovery will continue to bud.
I was pleased to see the effort on Wednesday from our youngsters, particularly Hodge and Ronan. The latter went off with a calf injury but I’m hoping he makes it tonight. I also noticed that we had our 17 year old striker, Nathan Fraser, on the bench. Maybe he should be given pitch time?
CHEESEBURGER OF DEATH
My mate Kevin the bird eating spider from the Galapagos Islands who is a Wolves fan reckons the Arsenal camp are about to be hit by a Star Trek inspired Alien infiltration . You know what I mean. A huge head which has been pulsating in a jar in a cave in Alpha Centuri 29993 X for 678 billion years (and just happens to be a Wolves fan) begins emiting disturbances in to the Arsenal squad ahead of the game. It will be enough to secure victory for WWFC.
CHEESEBURGER OF DEATH
Miserable fuckin twat
The team have given us a few glimmers of hope from their recent performances. A little more effort, endeavour and team structure has been evident compared to the depressing showings earlier in the season.
Hey, we’re not great, or even passably good, but the naming of the new manager and the injection of enthusiastic youth has certainly instilled hope into we beleaguered fans.
So, with such hope in my heart and my gold-tinted specs perched atop my nose, I confidently predict…….
Wolves 2v1 Arse’
We are now bottom of the Premier league and I think we will still be bottom at 10:00 pm tonight.
Don’t see any hope for us against a very good Arsenal side unless 5-6 of their lot have got their “World Cup” heads on and don’t fancy a cold November night in Wolvo.
Hope I’m wrong.
Let’s go into the break with a bang!
The curse of Wolves, Part 2. QPR dropped out of the playoffs with 4 defeats and a draw since Mick Beale turned the Wolves job down. Dodged a bullet? We dodged a bloody cannon ball there! No consolation I know with Wolves at the bottom of the PL, four points adrift of Everton, but we’re in a false position caused by Bruno’s bizarre destruction of the team he inherited from Nuno. Lopetegui will sort this. Let’s hope the lads can give Steve Davis a rousing send off tonight.
Bruno’s (with unable assistance from the lowerarchy)bizarre destruction ensured we are not in a false position but let’s hope that sensible January construction will resolve matters. Great to see the toffee fans going all ape **** by the way.
OK, we’re bottom, the only way is up!
Is all lost? I don’t think so.
Even if we fail to get anything out this Arsenal match we’ll be Played 15 with 10pts, exactly the same as Newcastle last season and look where they are now.*
The right head coach, and a few judicious purchases, it can still be turned around.
*I prefer not to mention Norwich!!! LOL
A really big ask tonight .. I’ve just seen their team and it does worry me…
I’m praying for a win or draw but fear the worst ..
With Man City losing that’s a bit of pressure taken off the Gooners as they’ll still be top regardless of tonight’s result…
Coupled with the fact Mike Dean is on VAR … it’ll be a long night.
Ron Flowers My All Time Hero
Seems we’ve gone back to a back 3 tonight and abandoned the Lage project which also suggests this is the team Steve Davis has been instructed to select
Shocking way to run a football club
Jeff Shi hang your head in shame bottom of the Premier League 5 points from safety.
This has been coming year on year of under investment then a late splurge with a manager they knew they were going to sack.
It will be a miracle if we get out of this…….but Shi should be sacked either way.
CHEESEBURGER OF DEATH
8 mins. Nailed on pen Wolves. BUT we are playing Arsenal ay we. Fucking bollocks ay it. VAR. Shambles.
Totally agree Cheesey…. and it is a clear foul in the box …
Mike Dean on VAR… nuff said.
It’s the inconsistency that gets to me … the refs need reminding that there’s only one set of rules… if it comes to personal judgement.. then it becomes biased …
CHEESEBURGER OF DEATH
Yes mate. I’m fuming over that. But having calmed down a bit we really were quite toothless weren’t we? No cutting edge. You were just sat there waiting for the Arsenal goal to go in . Well i was. It really is a 23 game season now. J-Lo has a MASSIVE job to save us . 9 wins from somewhere. …..
