Match Thread: Wolves vs Sheffield United


By Wolves
February 3 2018

Wolves take on Sheffield United at Molineux today, live on TV with a 5:30pm kick off. 

It may seem like our team are playing a reunion match, as United may well feature ex-players Richard Stearman, Lee Evans and Leon Clarke. Wolves fans will be keen to see whether Nuno will give Benik Afobe a starting place or a run-out following his return to 'The Pack'.

I’ll be off to the pub very shortly. Hope we all enjoy the match v a side containing Evans, Steerman and Clarke.

I think it’ll be tough one but if you look at that line up and now the bench, you have to be a little excited.

UTW!!

So.... Afobe starts on the bench and so does Leo Bonatini. Interesting!!

Obviously, an annoying afternoon watching the goals go in for Cardiff, Villa and Derby. Another classic situation where in days of old this would almost guarantee us slipping up, however I have more faith these days!

In reality I don’t care, just a win will do, however it’d great to see a return to a crisp passing, dominant win.

UTW!

We're due to give some team a roasting Ivy, and I've got this feeling in my water that it could happen today.

I'm watching the game at home so comments won't be as frequent as usual but I will try to keep those of you can't watch it up to speed.

At this rate Afobe might not get on. Was it my imagination or was Nuno kind of lukewarm with his comments about Benik?

Leon gave us so many miserable days when he last played for us, the least we could do today would be to return the favour 😊

Neves gets away with a foul which could have got him a yellow card - which we really don't want!

Jota clattered outside box by their keeper so he is sent off. Another team down to ten against us.

A high quality win. Wolves always dominated and scored two great goals. Another clean sheet. 11 points clear of second place & 12 clear of third.

I’m still on the crest this morning. Very good match and proving why we are top. QPR to come next week, another side we need to set the record straight with, just like the Blades.

On the latter, I’ve been reading one of their fan sites this morning. No hysteria and quite insightful and worth a scan Blades thoughts

Love this photo. Sums it all up. Wolves, purposeful, determined, energetic. Blades, behind the curve, bemused!
