A hard game awaits as the Hammers will want to please their fans after their loss against Wimbledon in the Cup. I will be happy for a scuffed win by the odd goal.

Not the best timing that Arnautovic has recommitted his future and will be ready to make it up to the fans - and that against a still Boly-less Wolves defence (7 goals conceded in less than 3 games without him!).

The weather will make this game a lottery...that is if it goes ahead.

My neighbour is the 2IC Groundsman. He is fairly confident they can make the ground ready, with the current weather forecast, but not sure what the Council will demand if the approaches to the ground are covered. Health and Safety rule.

We can view this West Ham fixture in prize fund context showing why we field full strength sides in the Premier league, below strength sides in FA Cup.

Finish one place higher than West Ham, another 2 million to the club.

In FA Cup terms you have to reach the final to gain that same prize money reward.

What would the exposure of being in the globally-viewed FA Cup final generate for Wolves though?

A lot of memorabilia gets sold on the back of a trophy and of course every cup game along the route generates more ticket sales and TV revenue for the coffers.

If Fosun wants Wolves to establish themselves as a brand around the world, it's appearing in showpiece occasions that goes a long way to achieving that, not just coming 7th or 8th, 20 odd points behind the big boys.

True enough but a bad draw like Man City turns your Cup dreams to smoke while the League below 6th is up for grabs for quite a few sides.
At two million a place thats a lot to create full focus.

No reason Wolves cannot treat both equally.

The cutting of replays in the latter stages and being in the PL, but not in European competition, means little fixture backlog is generated as a result.

If Wolves had approached last Saturday with a ruthless mentality, they would already have spared themselves another game.

Excellent first half of football, we should be two up regardless of a decent penalty shout too. Doc and jota are on fire.

We still lack that fox in the box type of forward who could put away the chances we are creating. Is Kevin Phillips Portuguese?

Offside "goal" looked more than a tight call. Not getting any benefits from the officials so far to reward a bright first half.

Doc should have squared that, we will find that final ball soon enough.

Only two words to say for that performance tonight "Outstanding".


West ham would have walked away tonight gracious that it was only 3 nil, 6 would have been more appropriate.


It was like watching Wolves in the Chumpionship at the height of their pomp . These are great days indeed Wolves fans, they dont come along that often you know, maybe once or twice in the lifetime of a team outside the ring fenced four.

I have checked out the family of the Ref tonight and his son in law's surname is Zabaleta apparently!!

We beat West Ham, the Ref and a dodgy linesman there. Great performance.

Terrific stuff. The new formation really enables us to be on the front foot at home. Raul, Jota, Doc and Moutinho immense.

Hammered.


Just two negatives on the night.

First half Jota gave the ball away to easily in promising positions. Has to work on the quality of his passing.


Just past the hour mark Saiss already on a booking went through the back of a West Ham player, careful lad.

Seem to have played them at the right time again. Boly's suspension is done now.

I thought it was going to be a tough game. The Wham supporters on the train were expecting a really big effort following their Cup defeat but what they got was bad to worse. :mrgreen:

I didn't realise Nasri was injured. They had absolutely nobody in midfield to link anything together for them.

Arnautovic was too rusty after his own self-imposed break from the team to make anything of his raw strength. I thought he might be exactly the type to unsettle Coady - Mitrovic style - but he was well off the pace and his injury altered nothing.

We held our shape brilliantly, but they were really meek.

I was actually worried we wouldn't score, it was really a last thirty minutes blitz. We did grind them down though, so not entirely a case of them being inept.

Question: Is this the best all round attacking performance we have ever given at Premier League level?

OK, we scored four v Leicester but the three against Wham was really impressive given the saves forced from Fabianski...notwithstanding the marginal offside decision and the two clear penalty shouts. They are the two best back to back games I've ever seen us play.

Some compliment, you have seen a few.

For sheer excitement this is still my pick, remember watching it on Sky down the Pig n Whistle.

That was a classic match, shame McIndoe lost his nerve at the death. The 3-3 v Spurs was another of our best games, plus the cup win v Newcastle.
