Football has passed me by. The sending off was an utter travesty, Boly won the ball on the ground fairly, his follow through, which cant really be helped due to the laws of physics, bought the "man" down.
The penalty was bought by Sterling, no pun intended, referees cant wait to give them in Manchester can they :roll: . I wonder if referees bid to outdo each other and become the person who gives the most penalties in Manchester :roll:



Agree. Even a neutral in the pub next to me said: "No way a red card." The games rules have been dramatically altered over the last decade or so since the PL appeared, under the old FL, people like Norman Hunter, Peter Storey, Ron Harris et al made tackles like that all game. It is a game for pussies now, you can no longer put in a meaty or hard tackle.

Same in my pub.

Clattenburg says yellow, still don't think Boly should have chanced it though.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/footb ... -Boly.html

Have been a strong proponent of NES developing a plan b but plan a has worked so well against the top sides. Felt Citeh doubled up on our wing backs, having two wingers on would have helped them offensively and defensively, the first goal their player had the time to pick their pass in the wide area.

The car crash moments within the game should not be the key focus for Wolves coming out of this match.

With either ten or eleven players the game was far to easy for the home side mainly because Wolves are to slow both in defence and through midfield.

You have to be quick enough to engage your opponents.

Fair comments KK, we have pace in one area of the team and nowhere else as City have in abundance. We would have lost with eleven men the way that they started against us.

All true - but despite Nuno's words (for media - doesn't want to moan about refs!) - the sending off was not warranted.

If that tackle is a red card, we are going to have few games ending with 9 players a side, unless we all play tippy-tappy non-contact footie.

I just wonder if the situation was reversed, and it was a Wolves player being tackled by an internationally renowned player from Man U, Man C, Liverpool, Chelsea.... the result would have been a red?? Just asking...??

Beaten by the better team, no shame in it we just need to take it on the chin and bounce back against Leicester. You look at the City team and they cost an absolute fortune and they were on their game last night, well up for it and a very professional performance from them, some of their movement and give and go passing was amazing

Fully agree with this. Forget whether it was a sending off or a penalty or not just look at the way City forwards consistently found space to receive the ball in and around the box and were able to move it on accurately with a single touch.

I don't think he did that badly. He was left as the lone attacker once Jota was withdrawn against their entire defence and still managed to get us up the park a few times and get round their defence.

He has an element of comedy about him because his feet move faster than his brain but he did all he could today. Neither Costa nor Cav would have managed to achieve anything more as substitute options.



I really want the lad to do well, but he is a lazy cnut, i was screaming at him to at least try to close them down in and around the halfway line.... he couldn't hear me obviously. :roll:

Not the best footballing night of my life, but we had 2 standout areas of weakness - both repeat offenders.

Boly - raved about by many, rolls royce footballer etc - bllcks - he doesn't close players down (c kane's goal the other week), and yesterday for the first, I could see Coady call to Boly to pass on Jesus, whilst Coady went to look at the danger building down the right wing. 3 seconds later, Boly hasn't moved, Jesus is 2 yds ahead and pokes it in unchallenged. Does he not listen, does he take time to get up to speed, does he not think or react quick enough, does he not like the physical challenge of staying tight to someone, or does he fear it would show his lack of "speed" and clumsily give away free kicks. Whatever, I am watching him, I hope Nuno and the rest of you are.
The sending off challenge, was a good tackle, until Silva went flying - yellow would have been fairer, so not castigating Boly for that.

Traore - wtf is he doing out there - spent 3/4 of that 2nd half in limbo - neither closing down players with the ball, nor hugging the half way line to keep their central defenders busy and afraid. He just meandered around about 10 yds inside our half, making him 10 yds behind their defenders if the ball ever did come over the top (he is quick, but not that quick), and a couple of yds behind any midfielders knocking the ball around outside our penalty area. It is as though he didn't understand whatever instructions Nuno had given him. And as to those shorts of his - ffs get a bigger pair - sure had the ladies talking who were sitting next to me.

So basically, he needs to grow a pair, but not, as the case may be?
