Back to the league this week. Thought I would leave this late in case of covid postponements but they seem to have reduced markedly since the end of the christmas/new year programme - just saying.

The Saints come to us with some decent recent form but we haven't done too badly ourselves of late. Need to make sure we don't give Ward- Prowse any dead ball shots on goal. I hope this isn't like the game a few years ago when we gave them a game but lost by the close marging of 6-0.

I suspect Dendonker will be in for the missing Saiss after the half and half trial with Marcal last week and I guess Jiminez will be back to replace Fabio the fabulous from last week. I hope Podence keeps his place, he's our most creative outlet at the moment.

Come on you Wolves.

With our low scoring this season it won't be a high scoring game, so a scuffed win will do for me. The Saints are better this season and will present a hard game for us.

Expecting a tough one today. I would take a 1-0 but we must be wary of their set-piece specialist. Not many comfortable options to replace Saiss, don`t know why he recalled Sanderson if he isn`t going to give him a go. Both him and Nuno must see something in Donk that I am missing. Podence is undroppable (is that a word?) on present form. Just hope he can maintain it. If Jiminez is still below par I hope he gives the Kid half hour, at least. A draw will not be the end of the World. Oh, what`s going on with Boly? Rumours abound Bruno is willing to listen to offers.

After his display last week I wouldn’t at all be surprised to see silva start again this week. Hopefully adama gets the nod over trincao too even if they are two sides of the same coin (all show and no end product). Podence is showing real attacking flair now so along with him and neves there is at least a bit of forward momentum when we get on the ball.

No Neves and Saiss has really unsettled the team and we have no central midfield, just hoping to create something in the wide areas from our punts forward. Southampton have probably had 10 corners and missed a couple of sitters to boot.

Very fortunate penalty award, and unconvincing performance. As ever, we need more from Trincao, he is just too passive in matches. Traore will surely make an appearance to try and loosen some chequebooks.

Wow, another well rounded performance with an exciting ending. For once I wasn't reaching for the defibrillator when we went to 2.1 their free kick was a stunner, but a bit of a freak. Never thought Sa was going to be beaten today, kept us in it in that first half.
Saints played much better than I feared they might. But again nearly every Wolves player was on their game. New lads slotted in, and thought Trincao had some grt moments. Podence on fire, so hope we get to see him and Neto together soon.
Coadys goal relieved a lot of tension in the ground as Saints always knocking on the door. V pleased for our Captain. Silva and Traore both came on as effective subs. All in all a grt afternoon.

Very nice result, first league win by more than a goal's margin for a good while and even a goal for Traore (after a classic thrash over the bar when you thought he had to score).

It's probably unfair to analyse the performance too critically with Neves and Saiss out, and a debutant thrown in, so I'll just be happy with another victory today and some decent shot-stopping from Sa and a bit of luck along the way.

Good win. Some decent football at times but we seemed totally lost in midfield without Neves and were under the cosh for the first 20 minutes. Anyway we scored 3 at home in the league, when did we last do that? So I came home happy. And, as we won, I can give a nod to a magnificent freekick from ward-prowse. It seems a bit far out to beat the goalkeeper but look at the pace and the swerve away into the top corner, I can't blame Sa for not reaching that.

Sa showed he is top class, I think our new Toti was a bit of alright. Kilman has become an exceptional defender, glad Coady finally got a prem goal at the Mol. I thought Dendonker was struggling a bit and probably plays better alongside Neves rather than Moutinho. I still don't think Jiminez is fully back to his old self and he got another silly booking today. Podence is so smart, a bit of a chancer but makes things happen. Trincao is still struggling with the pace and physicality of the Prem. Happy for Traore that he finally got one after another glaring miss and, once again a lively cameo from Fab - there might be a player in there.

Thats the understatement of the season - no way was that a penalty , I just don't understand VAR.

In the ground, I thought it might be, but the replay clearly shows that RAN ran past the ball and deliberately ran into the defenders leg instead. It was an absolute calamity of a decision to be honest and strangely it pisses me off almost as much as one against us.
It seems we always get the rub of the green with VAR against the Saints. Perhaps we're a place or two lower on the 'must stitch up' list pinned up to the wall at VAR HQ.

Totally agree, if that had been awarded against us, i would have been spitting blood. VAR is a fecking mess that favours the top teams usually. Nice to get a "freebie" off VAR for once though. We were not at it early on and should have been two down before we got the lucky penno. Still, we got three goals and three points, happy with that. Not having Saiss and Neves shows how shallow our squad is at times. Saints were very good at times but extremely wasteful, thank God. Ward-Prowse's free kick was magnificent, hats off to him.

Nah, defender had a second go at getting the ball away and caught RAN. Pen all day long. :P

Hassen hoot did us a favour taking a midfielder off and playing 3 up front.
