I'm dreading Saturday 6th October (Palace V Wolves) after today's display against a woeful Newcastle, who sat back for 90 minutes and showed no ambition whatsoever and we couldn't score against them. They look like relegation favorites to me

Still enjoying the Prem though. Onwards and upwards in Roy we trust.

Brighton play with 2 defensive midfielders, Murray’s up on his own
crying out for support.... it’s boring to watch ( go to all games).
Look at the way newcomers play (wolves)..... over 30 shots st goal
against Burnley other week... and Man Utd today wish we were as entertaining?

QPR 0 - Norwich 1. What a shambles.
The first half against Millwall in mid-week was like watching Brazil, so on our way to the ground we were feeling positive. Mistake.
Yesterday the Rs played like Grange Hill for 94 minutes. Appalling. Our boys forgot how to pass, tackle, keep possession or hit the target. I guess playing three games in a week had got to them. Then, in the second half, through poor marking we let in a soft goal. So normal service resumes.

Some managers change the team shape, formation and their entire tactical way for each team.
Wolves manager has only one tactic, attack the opposition.
No parking buses
No damage limitation
No 1 up front.
It's 3-4-3 all the way

Just loving it :ok

QPR 1 - Derby 1. This was a good game of football to watch. Pacey and skilful. Derby edged it in the first half, but the Rs dominated the second half and could have won it. The ref, David Webb, made so many inconsistent decisions, he managed to wind up both sets of fans. Still we came away from the game having enjoyed the spectacle.

Well Wolves go into the international break in a very healthy position.
I am very happy that Nuno has stuck to his attacking style football that his tactics dictate.
Lots of accolades from football fans, and some really good positive comments from MOTD pundits, Gary really likes our style lol..."it's refreshing"
The Portugese influence is gaining fans to Wolves from Europe.
According to Fosun (owners) we're a year ahead of schedule, to compete in europe.

Well what I did originally write I have erased, who am I burst your bubble. Well done Wolves. (although you did not play 343 and all out attack) What you were, were very well drilled and patient. Enjoy it why the expectation levels are low.

Took my youngest grandson for his first game, much to the disgust of the older more regular attender. He absolutely loved it yet I thought it was the most dour boring game I've been to for a couple of years. 90 minutes and a total of four goal mouth incidents, oh to be 5 years old again and going to my first match and seeing it through innocent eyes.

I presume you mean the Crystal palace game?
Nuno plays 3-4-3
Which allows 5 across the back when Palace attacked
And 5 up front when the break is on.
Neves and Otto in midfield.
The goal scored was from a wingback assisted by a striker.
Palace were very strong in the first 20 mins then the game settled.
Mr Saha was kept quiet and as you say Wolves waited and in the second half I thought we pipped Palace to win

We've been almost as low as any team can go, but now it's our turn to benefit from the foreign money that has been ruling football for many years, how long it will last, who knows?

That, coupled with a fantastic manager and a very influential agent has brought the best football seen at Molineux for decades, may long it last!

I would imagine any club would grasp an opportunity like this with both hands, including the fans.

QPR 3 - Sheffield Wednesday 0.
This game was even stevens in the first half and we were pleased to go in 1-0 up, after our Polish player Wszolek's shot was parried by the keeper and Hemed headed a perfect shot to the corner.
In the second half our boys scored again, from a cross from Wszolek and the tiny Freeman headed in. After that Wszolek hit the target, which was tipped over the bar. Then our loan striker Hemed went off to be replaced by our other loan striker Wells. He received a perfect pass from our wizz-kid Eze and scored his first goal for us (he always scored against us in the past).
The Owls supporters turned up in large numbers, which was positive but they went silent after our first goal went in. That was the disappointing bit. Still we're happy.

QPR 1 - Villa 0. That's four wins and a draw in five games, four clean sheets and now three wins in seven days. I cannot remember us doing that for a long time.

What a difference from the beginning of this season, when we were at the bottom of the division with an appalling goal difference. Now we have a confident team. Until tomorrow we are now in seventh place.

It was cold out there tonight but we went to the game feeling confident after our mid-week win against the Owls. Tonight was a battle and our boys were up for it. That goal from Pavel was crucial tonight as Villa had to chase the game.

So I'm off to our game at Blackburn next Saturday with a positive feeling.
