Wrong already...

Certain inevitability about this as we have been close to disaster in the last four games and there are really no points given away.Big test from here...and an ebullient Bristol to follow who just beat manu.

Two. Defeats will really burst the balloon....two draws would be quite acceptable.

Of the top ten teams we have played two away and eight at home....so the second half of the season will be much tougher than the first.


1-1, close game :wink:



Really hope you are right this time...I will not feel comfortable without more 1-2 now

Next goal wins it

Very strange...you need physical strength against Morrison, I'd much prefer Barth, if Boly is injured.
Miranda is too casual and light weight

The sharpness just isn't good enough. Bad touches and sloppy decisions all game long.

Their equaliser was like us at the start of the season trying to defend a corner. Ruddy all over the shop.

Cav & Boly both injured.

A point at the New Den will do thanks very much. They will do a lot of teams some damage when playing at home.
A win last week, a draw this. 2 points a game average then. No problem.

I've said a couple of times that we could really do with a top keeper that commands his area.

Ruddy has made some good saves this season but he always worries me when the ball is crossed into the area, especially from set pieces.

I think the defence ought to be cut some slack tbf.

Bad day at the office.

At least we didn't lose.

Last season and the one before and the one before that etc etc....we would have folded under the pressure and lost.

We did not

It's frustrating to only come away with a point after doing so well to get ourselves in front. But in the grand scheme, that's a decent result. I'd take another point at Bristol to be honest.

It's what I predicted. I would have rather it had stayed at 1-2 though...or for us to have got a late, late winner. :(

Preserved our record of never winning when we've gone behind in a game #consistency

Fingers crossed the injuries to Boly and Cav aren't too serious. We've been lucky this season with injuries, but we can do without another Costa-eque lay-off to a key player.

That Millwall equalizer was comedy defending, and it appears that there were too many Wolves bodies in Ruddy's way! That said, we could have won it late on, but a point at Millwall is acceptable.

We have a good record against Brizzle, but a point at Ashton Gate, followed by three at home to Brentford, will be great.

We need to let Wolfie loose before the match at Bristol City then we could go on to a 6-1 win. :lol:

Seriously, I think it would be ok if we just don't lose there - they are flying at the moment.

I'm not not too sure that we are ''LUCKY'', we are the only team that I see doing a second half team stretch and warm up - I think (perhaps) this is why our former player come Physio was released and the Portuguese took over lock, stock and two smoking barrels. I'm also glad not to see our forward players NOT rolling around as though they've been felled by a sniper's bullet albeit, the likes of Jota has taken some punishment this season and mainly down to wank referees.

I'll be very happy with that, our embers. :wink:

Eight points from 4 games is a very good haul.

Good point about stretching, before AND after the game, but you do wonder what used to happen in our old treatment room...

Really pleased with the result in what when taking everything into account would be one of the most difficult games of the season.

A real collision of cultures.

Well done Wolves.

Come on, when you're winning a game with less than 20 minutes to go, a draw cannot be overly pleasing. We weren't away in the Nou Camp, we were at the 17th placed team in the 2nd Division. That goal conceded was League 2 fare.

We are not the finished article yet. No-one at the club claims this, no-one on here is stupid enough to believe it. Nuno has said we are a work in progress, wise man. As we climb the curve, making mistakes is inevitable. As long as we learn from them, they are valuable lessons for our young side to take forward, many sides will try to kick us off the park in this league. Yes Wall are not Barca, but we are not Real Madrid. Hard fought draw, in a game that in previous years we would have lost, is a welcome point well earned.

Onwards and upwards. :D

Hard to say as we were so inconsistent last season. I remember great performances dahn the Smoke at Brentford and Fulham last season, and winning away at Premier League sides. We were crap at home, mind. I even remember owd Deano winning his first game (of very few) down there as well.

We haven't actually lost at the Wall since that scarecrow Claridge fell over his own feet and got them penalty 15 years ago.

I honestly can't get truly on board with the concept that you line up against a team containing Jed Wallace and George Saville and without any strikers of any repute and say, "well, if we get a draw here, it's a great point."

We started shakily and fell behind but then we did more than enough to equalise and once we turned the game around (though their keeper should've held Saiss's shot), 20 minutes left, dig in, keep concentrated, look for the gaps for the killer 3rd goal and see it out.
