Well it's a bit worrying that KK hasn't turned up to do this. I hope he is ok.

A strange match to come in strange conditions. Who will be the fittest, who will best be able to focus on the job in hand? Will Nuno play Traore and Dendoncker, is Podence in with a chance, or has Nuno got something new up his sleeve? Well, some kind of football is better then none at all so let's look forward to it.

Come on you Wolves.

The anticipation is weighing heavily.

We have a small squad. There does seem to be a large number of quite serious injuries in the first couple of games played. Fingers crossed, whatever the score, we get through unscathed.

Could be anything this result any which way you want, so long a break in weird circumstances, you have no idea how it will pan out, main thing, as said already, no injuries, please.

Plus let's us know everything is ok, Knocker

So... we're back!

Saiss having a bit of a struggle so far. Doherty and Dendoncker involved too little.

We need someone else breaking into the box than just the two strikers who are heavily surrounded most times. Leaving Boly to make the play too often, it's normally just a hopeless punt forwards.

The game will change one way or the other when Traore inevitably enters play.

Two great goals; the first was a team effort.

wow - didn't have a good feeling about today, tbh I felt this layoff had helped everyone get back players from injury, except us! but 2 grt goals and we are alongside Utd - didn't recognise Traore when he came on, what a difference a haircut makes, and Costa looked almost cute! Not a lot of social distancing going on in goal celebrations or after match hugs - if it safe, then these are the images that might get peeps past corona-fear. Great to have the game back, or more importantly the Wolves - couldn't get excited about watching German or Spanish footie.

Great to have that winning feeling again.

As it looked all game long, the introduction of Traore was the difference. West Ham with nothing to offer over the 90, a good starting opponent to warm up against. Well done, lads, especially with the other results.

Like we`ve never been away. Quiet, patient first half and deliver the goods second half. Just hope and pray we can keep these players.

Absolutely loved Neto's strike. You can't beat just smashing one into net off your laces like that.

Thought we were always in control, but didn't look like making it pay until the subs. Traore made a massive impact. I think that game probably Peters out to a 0-0 without him.

Nice return. Two great goals to watch. A typical Wolves performance as if they hadn't been away, slow first half then put the pressure on later with 2 pacy wide players. Traore just unstoppable again and that cross was just perfect, pinpoint and curling away from the keeper. Tremendous volley from Neto - I was waiting for VAR to find a reason to cancel it. On to Wednesday now.

I can't let this thread pass without a mention for some of the new 'barberless' hair do's on show. Most impressive was Jota's Screech Barnet and Traore seems to have joined a Jackson Five tribute band... Tito will be loving that!

Just so great to see a good win to cap a highly disciplined & professional performance. Yes - a couple of moments of indecison that could cost us against the best, but mentally one loses sharpnes as well as physically.

Two FABULOUS well crafted goals, with great interplay from Doc and Traore for both before clinical finish from Jimenez and WONDROUS strike from Neto.

Jota must be getting worried re the progress of Neto. He always looked a very quick and ready replacemwnt for Jota - just needs a bit more strength for the battle... Great to have 2 with different qualities but essentially playing the same role.

Lovely the way we shifted from 3-5-2 to 3-4-3; it is a familiar pattern. Big question - will Traore become fed up being used this way?? Hope not. At end, Nuno CLEARLY demonstrated how much he loves him!!

A controlled performance, only in danger just the once in the first half and after that West Ham never looked like scoring, it was just a question of when we would score one and then two crackers come along, wonderful. I was worried that the lay off would see us rusty and out of the rhythm we had in March and that West Ham struggling near the bottom, would give us problems but they didn't. Nuno yet again made the best substitutions at the right time, what a manager he is, his is the most important contract that needs renewing immediately under enhanced terms.
