Match Thread: Wolves vs Tottenham Hotspur


The midfield battle
By Wolves
November 3 2018

After suffering consecutive league defeats for the first time since joining Wolves, Nuno Espirito Santo will be looking for a positive result against injury hit Spurs in this evening's unusually late Saturday kick off

Wolves face Tottenham Hotspur at Molineux in this evening's televised match hoping to regain the match winning feeling they had until the recent defeats to Watford and Brighton. Spurs will be without Danny Rose, Jan Vertongen, Eric Dier and Victor Wanyama due to injury. Wolves have their first injury concern of the season as Diogo Jota is unfit to play with a 'minor problem' which has not been expanded upon. The match will feature on Sky Sports this evening and updates will be posted on this board whenever possible.

Another change of starting team by Nuno today. After starting the last game Adama Traore may have expected to start again this evening, but he resumes his place on the bench. Line-up:

Patricio, Bennett, Coady, Boly, Doherty, Moutinho, Neves, Jonny, Cavaleiro, Jimenez, Costa

Subs: Ruddy, Vinagre, Hause, Dendoncker, Gibbs-White, Bonatini, Traore

A weakened Spurs team. Let’s hope that we can take advantage.

Absolutely Lupine. No Erickson in their starting eleven and Ali isn't even on the bench. We couldn't have hoped for much more & now we have to manage the threat the rest of them present!

Half time whistle Wolves 0 Spurs 2

Spurs have shown their superiority as a striking force otherwise it has been a pretty equal contest. Wolves should have got one back but the linesman wrongly flagged Doc offside in the lead up to Jimenez putting it in the net neatly.

I think the most we can realistically hope for it to try for a draw

Whilst never doubting Docs striking ability I'm beginning with to have concerns about his defending. Last week I thought he left Murray unmarked for his goal and this evening he was nowhere near Lucas for his goal. It seems a bit like he's leaving the defensive duties to Bennett on the right side. Jonny could also have done better marking Lamela for the first goal. Unusual that our defence is the weak point so far

Another loss for the work in progress.
Good morale though,we gave it a good go...and @#$%& like this counts at the end of the day.

A rare off day for our defence,I think all three goals conceded can be prevented.

We go again,a top twelve finish is a decent aim for this season I think.

If one is allowed to dream..a cup run,please.On our day and some luck with the hat..who knows?

Wolves slip down a place in the table to 11th.
We gave it a good go, but must remember it was certainly not a Spurs first team! The penalties were earned and we had a goal wrongly chalked off for offside in the first half so it should have been a draw. However we still don't score enough goals from open play. Bonatini is definitely not the answer, but MGW acquitted himself extremely well when he replaced Joao.
Never mind - next week we go to Arsenal!!

Helder Costa and Diogo Jota has been disappointments so far this season.
I actually thinks Jimenez is doing okay,he should be on three goals by now..and add his three assists as well together with his good allround play..then I think Raul is doing allright.

Moutinho has gone off the boil a bit lately.
Neves,thus far,is not the player he was last season..let Mou take the defensive task more.
I want Ruben Neves further up the pitch.

Johnny?..I dunno,overall good defensive wise..but for my money not good enough at the other end of the pitch.

3 defeats in a row.. when is the last time we scored from open play? We need a striker big time!
I thought we played quite well but we have to stem the bleeding,,, 2 or 3 more defeats and we will be looking over our shoulder - 15 points from 11 games is nothing to get over excited about.
We gave it a right go at the end.. but my word - Spurs do have a soft underbelly , 3-0 up and they walk away lucky in the end.
Overall it is positive but we need to return to winning ways, pronto.

Another hugely frustrating defeat.

Whilst yet again we give a decent side a real game, we are just lacking that flare and composure in front of goal. I mean compare the Costa miss to the Kane goal. Added to that some really disorganised defending, in particular how we were all sucked towards the ball prior to goals 2 and 3.

Arrrg!

Mind you, it doesn’t help when the linesman f’s up a perfectly good goal. I think 1-2 at half time changes the balance significantly.

Being more positive, hard to do after 3 defeats in a row, we fought back well, kept going with a good tempo, even had Spurs on the wrack for a while in the second half but it was a mountain to climb which was just too much.

Notable excellent performance by Morgan Gibbs-White, very very good indeed.

Overall though, so disappointed, decent play, not outplayed (though honestly felt we were 2nd best) but a lessen of a similar type to Watford and Brighton - it’s goals that change matches.

Where next? Arsenal!

I’ll be there.
