Of all the sides near or at the top end of the league the one I thought Wolves should enjoy facing the most is Arsenal.
They share many of the same values of our Wolves side and can be got at because they leave space in behind and down the sides.
Expect another nail biter, or maybe a head scratcher.

One thing with the Premier league you have to really enjoy it.

Forecast for this one an end to end creative fest... 3-3.

The day we find our shooting boots.

I would be truly astounded if this team can score 3 goals. There's no been absolutely no sign that we have gained any composure in front of goal. Traore for one has looked worse with every appearance.

Have to admit that I think he hasn't shined since West Ham.

I would also add that the last thing Wolves want to get into against a team like Arsenal is an end to end game as, just as last night shows, when you have an open game the more ruthless team will simply outscore the other and Wolves are probably the division's least ruthless team.

Our best results have come from us keeping the game as tight as possible with our team shape. If we let the opposition get right up against our defence we will concede more often than not.

I dont think Wolves are built that way, Nuno wishes to thin the oil not get bogged down in grease.

Could be a test of the fans over time because of our wish to open up the field even against the best operators.

Should have scored more than 1 - more profligacy from us! There's definitely more breakaway chances for us here.

Good half that, just don't get overexcited and look after the ball the rest will follow.

Really should have won that with the chances we had, but much improved.

If Arsenal had lost 3-1 they couldn't have complained - back to wall defending at times, but the chances we made were brilliant.

Had to win that match with those chances. A draw is a disappointment but at least we stopped the losing run before the break.

Good performance, deserved a result.

Criminal defending on the Arsenal corner which led to the equaliser you cant switch off and not get punished.

If you highlight the good things a youngster does within a game you have to also highlight the poor unforgivable things.

Great threaded through ball from MGW last week, nice shot from the edge of the box this week.

But you just don't turn your back on an opponents corner and allow them to take it short.

That very basic cost Wolves a clean sheet and a victory.

Key reason the lad is used from the bench and not a first choice selection.

A draw was about right when you consider that both Bellerin and Aubameyang should have scored basic chances and then balance that with our chances missed, Costa ( first half), Jota and Traore plus MGW's woodwork shot at the death. It was Wolves who looked a top four team in this game, not Arsenal. That just shows how well we have adapted to this level. Everyone at the club can feel proud of that performance.

Would have if I hadn't been wasting my time in Tenerife looking for a bar that was showing a match that wasn't on the box in the fust place. Great result though, happy days are here again. Think I'll go away and write a song with that title.

The NBC feed was available with Don Goodman on co commentary, later used by Sky for their extended highlights output.

Absolutely spot on. I didn't highlight in my positive 'Just Got Back', but did make the point that the defending at short corners was woeful from the moment Arsenal started using them. MGW was very naive and should learn from the way Bennett, Coady and Boly, Doc and Jonny (and indeed Neves) see their role in protecting our goal area. EVERYONE must do it when opposition have the ball (just see the work Jimenez does, and indeed Cav!)

You also require your experienced players to be loud and vocal in such situations.


Maybe Rui PatrĂ­cio and Joao Moutinho in that situation lack that confidence when using English.

I believe that Rui did shout at them, alerting them to the quick corner from what I recall on MotD.

Shouldn't have needed a shout from anyone! They are PAID to concentrate for the entire game, and this must have been the 4th or 5th short corner Arsenal had taken, so hardly a surprise!!
