3 points against a title favorite. Perfect way to start the season!

Gotta be more clinical in final third, but we were better team by far in the first half. Not in the second half, but not a lot of clear cut chances for Boro.

Not gonna lie, I'm a little bit in love with Willy Boly.

Not ashamed to admit I got a little emotional during this. Image

Would have taken a narrow win pre game.....you just have to be well happy with the result, if not the performance.

Possession was 52/48 in their favour

Solid performance, lots of positives and lots of things to work on, we are very much a WIP and I expect us to improve as the season goes on, Boro were also decent in spells and also seem to be trying the 3 at the back as well, I can see both of us being in the mix at the end of the season.

How good does big Willy look? Calm and assured, got done once from my beer fuelled memory but apart from that he was immense, special mention for a player I dont like much in Conor Coady, well done chap

He was so deep today that at times, I thought he was in goal. Our Sweeper I guess and as I suggested in another thread, our General in the making.

As much as I liked your blemish free skin and your cider, THAT and the Villa Pics are pushing my screen on a Laptop well out of sync. Don't forget that I usually enlarge my screen text because I've got old eye and refuse to wear spectacles and of course, I'm a miserable old Soldier GIT.

Next time, spill the cider down the front of our Third Team shirt and it'll be a wet T shirt comp. :lol:

I don't recall a Wolves team playing with such fluency, the way we pinged the ball around, triangles, then switching the play, at pace. Boly is a beast, Douglas looks assured, and Neves is quality.

However, our goal was a bit fishy, I mean, their defender made a suicidal pass, a pass that wasn't even on, and he could see our man, right in line.

If we look at the numbers the extra percentages Boro had possession wise was with the Boro back four being on the ball.

Thats to Wolves credit, could have taken that away, but sometimes positional play means you let them have the ball in certain situations.

Very clever Wolves.

Knocker's argument about percentages has he well knows swings both ways, were we clever, or could we not keep the ball?

Miranda and Boly, made some silly errors, but hopefully they will grow as players.

Douglas was comfortable in a 3 and a 5, shows consistency, which is what Wolves must strive for

We need another striker

"...some silly errors..."?

I - and nearly everyone else - seems to think they were extremely strong, confident and (positionally) disciplined. Not sure there was more than a couple of misplaced passes, which the you are trying to pass out of defence rather than hopefully hoof could indeed be judged by the curmudgeonly as 'silly errors'. Me? i prefer to regard it as an occasion al inevitable consequence of trying to play football!!

It was a game of chess which I actually found interesting. There were some wayward passes, but not like there were in the past, and there were a few hoofs from defence at the end but I didn't find them an affront to the senses under the circumstances.

I wouldn't say it was an exciting game although I found it so at the end as the game seemed to be balanced on a knife edge. My daughter found it exciting, though, and she thought the ref was a pillock. :mrgreen:

Your daughter obviously knows her stuff. Ask her to post on here please. We could do with an influx of astuteness. 8)

She hasn't seen a lot of matches but I've been impressed by her awareness of quite a few finer points of the game.

That ref, though, he played a blinder...quite literally. :lol:
