Match Thread: Wolves vs Burnley FC
Wolves Strike Force
September 16 2018
Having been moved to a Sunday lunchtime kick-off, Wolves home match against Burnley is featured today on Sky TV
Nuno Esipirito Santo will be hoping to achive his first win at home of the season and another three points today against a team struggling to find its form after great succes last season. Burnley have had a busy start to the 2018-19 season having already run their race in the Europa League. There appears to be some concern about the fitness of Raul Jimenez to play after he returned early from International duty with Mexico, so this may give Leo Bonatini a start after impressing when he came on as substitute at West Ham. Ivan Cavaleiro appears to be making progress in his recovery as he has been featured training with the first team squad this week. Fans will no doubt be wondering whether Adama Traore's last minute goal at West Ham will earn him a start today, or he will continue to be used as an impact substitute.
Board members are invited to post their observations during and after the match as the usual commentary will not be available today due to holiday.pqs: qs:

I’m sat at the airport watching it on my mobile because there is no Sky allowed here!!
From what I’ve seen it’s all Wolves!! Just can’t get it last Joe Hart although we have gone close on a few occasions. Burnley offering very little and our defence coping very well with any threat they do pose.
Jota and Costa still trying hard but not sufficiently incisive. I hope Traore will cause them more real problems when he comes on
We are playing some lovely football.
Overall a great performance but our finishing was woefull , 5-1 would have been a fairer reflection on the game. We played some lovely football.
Nice to see you Wolverina and i gathered you were flying Cheshire so i just kept the thread ticking over.
Great performance and it’s rare to see us murder a side by a 1-0 margin.
Just how on earth did we manage to fail another goal ... or two .. or three ... or four ... or nine!
Well Nuno will know what to do in training this week .... shooting practice ad infinitum!
Well done Wolves , we ay a bad side am we!?
I was also shocked to see the score from Everton!!! We are now above them in the table - which can’t be bad after the money they spent in the summer!!
Onwards to Old Trafford folks
We are heading in the right direction, thats for sure!
It is comforting seeing us dominate teams like Burnley the way we did Sunday.
Our way of play is based on moving the ball from one side of the pitch to the other combined with running into spaces.
We do this well IMO.
We have a world class goalie.
We have a defence that has stepped up really well last three games.
We have a winger in Johnny Castro Otto that has settled perfectly in Prem surroundings,and we have The Doc who has really stepped up his game after Leicester away.The work just fine right now,providing both cover defensively and poses a threat in attack.
Diogo Jota and Helder Costa looks better for each game and Raul Jimenez has proved to be very useful the way we play.I just wish he would score a little bit more..but that aside the mexican has been pretty awesome thus far.
We have our supersub in Traore.You know what I mean..little bit more education and the sky might not be the limit.I think he is the fastest player in the Prem.
Cavaleiro on his way back as well,add Vinagre,MGW and we look good for a top ten finish.Add a cup run to that and no one can be miserable.
We also gets a lot of respect from our opponents.Joe Hart for example said we are the best newly promoted team he has ever played against.It looks we have a superfoundation to continue to build on....I don´t know what to say more.
It is like a dream everything.Please don´t wake me up!
Fosun is our owner.
Mendes is our uncle.
Jeff´s our chairman.
Nuno is our manager.
We got Neves.
We got Moutinho.
Is this really for real?
UP THE WOLVES!
Our time has finally come.I´ve been waiting since Andy Grays winner against Forest.
Let´s enjoy it!
