And suddenly the next game looks a little easier.

We face ups and downs during a season so just enjoy it.


Forecast for this one.

Newcastle 1 Wolves 2.

Will Neves start?

I'm looking forward to it a bit more and we'll go into it with a bit more confidence but it won't be easy. They'll be very happy with their point at Everton.

Neves is bound to start.

I'll go for a 1-1 draw.

In a way, these sort of matches are more important than against the top six.

In the last seven games, we've had four that we would expect to take points from but got none.

The bonus three matches we've taken four which could easily have been six.

I remember in Mick's second EPL season we took 15 points from the 12 matches against the top six. The next season we didn't and went down.

Enjoy, but also beware. 8)

Neves in for Moutinho for me. But I suspect Saiss will drop back out.

Intresting game this one. Newcastle have picked up a bit of late, but playing away in front of a big crowd seems to bring the best out of our boys.

We are the better team, but the better team doesn't always win. Plus Mike Dean's the ref so anything could happen.

50% win, 25% draw, 25% lose.

Keep it tight and hit them on the break, hopefully get the crowd on their back. Interested what he does with the midfield and front three.

Jimenez to channel Bully for a 4-1 win.

Hope Saiss and Neves start in the middle. As good as he was against Chelsea, I’d guess MGW will return to the bench with Costa back in.

If Saiss starts, and if Shelvey does also for them, it'll be interesting to see those two tussle for 90 minutes after that incident two years ago.... :roll:

I have a feeling after Wednesday's unexpected victory, and the great effort that we put in, that we'll go away to Newcastle with the pressure valve relieved, and Wolves bang up for this one. If we can play like we did away against Arsenal, it could be a great visit to St James's Park, but it will be interesting to see how Rafa sets his team up.

I'll be happy with a draw.

Reports that Moutinho, MGW, and Raul give way to the returning Neves, Costa, and Traore.

Big pitch at Newcastle, looks like Nuno is looking to create individual duels.

But why is Jimenez dropped?

Neves returning is understandable. However, Costa hasn't looked as if he's interested in doing much running since the second half v Spurs. As for Traore, whilst he'll run through a barn door, he doesn't seem as if he knows what to do with the ball when he's at the end of his run. Bring him on as a sub, sure, but I'm bewildered if he starts.

I would field the same team if all fit. Put Nevez on the bench, otherwise, where`s the incentive in having a good game only to be replaced for the next one?

It's a difficult choice, Desi. As they say, one shouldn't change a winning team.

Saiss who had a good game or bring Neves back in? Hmmm!

I'd have thought that the young legs, ball control, dribbling skills and passing of MGW would benefit from open spaces.

Jimenez or Traore? It's a no brainer.

A reinvigorated Jota or a lethargic Costa? Nuno's choice not mine.

Absolutely senseless to drop Jimenez after his goal on Wednesday, his confidence will be high and he runs forever after everything. I would also bring back Neves and keep Saiss in and slot MGW behind Jimenez. Bring Costa or Traore on after 65 minutes to run at tired defenders.

Makes sense to me. :wink:

Reports confirmed, not a great selection for me.

Spend all that money in the summer yet our starting eleven is two players short of our Championship side. Keeper and striker.

Traore for Raul ...is baffling tbh.

At best I would say a 'brave choice' ...lets see how it pans out ...Genius or Fool after 90 mins.

Traroe, let's hope it pans out.

Hope Coady isn't wearing the LGBLT armband, deeply offensive with the recent paedophile scandal and morally objectionable to more than just me.

Is it me, or does the paid for Wolves web site not actually show the Wolves commentary any more? It's what I paid for, but seems to have either disappeared or some genius has just made it impossible to find.

Just don't see Traore as a CF
If we need to rotate then should be Jota centre with Costa and Traore wide so Traore has got space to take on players to create
Jota Jiminez and of one MGW or Traore ( for differing reasons) probably our most threatening attacking formation I think

Tarore usual self.
At least that goal will shut people up about goals and assists for Jota and Costa. Looked like we would go on and royally do the Geordies.
Patricio can't kick.
Some refs and linesmen don't know basic rules, whole of the ball needs to cross the line to go out of play.

MGW for Traore. Donk for Saiss.

Giving away too many free kicks for my liking. Boly is having a stinker and Traore is ineffective in that role.

Really stupid fk we gave away for their equaliser, Rondon is a threat.

Slack performance, passing is poor and we put continually ourselves under pressure as a result.

The last 30 seconds of the half as an example: Patricio has the GK and time for us to launch a final attack, he instead kicks it short to Boly who ambles 10 metres forward then gives the ball away under minimal pressure, we lose several challenges and the ball ends up coming into our box when we should have got their defence turned and created something.

Rondon the type of muscular forward we always struggle against - see Mitrovic too - within 30 seconds we were almost behind as a result. Another let off from his brilliantly struck FK, but we didn't clear the ball properly and the equaliser duly arrived.

Not sure why Costa and Traore got the nod today based on one being mediocre on Wednesday and the other not even getting a kick. Hoping for a 2nd half a la Chelsea, but we may need changes to achieve that. At least Jota has regaining his form slowly.

Yes, one plus, another goal for Jota. If Nuno sticks we will lose this. Changes needed.

:D

Don't think having an extra man helps us, we still have three at the back and the two in CM still drop deep. Another striker needed, Solanke please. Matt rescues us again after more magic from Jota.
