Match Thread: Wolves vs Bournemouth FC
Doc gets his latest goal
December 15 2018
Wolves host Bournemouth today looking to win three consecutive Premier League matches for the first time ever. Eddie Howe will also be looking for a positive result following his team's drubbing by Liverpool last Saturday
Nuno Espirito Santo says his coaching team are in the ideal situation, having an almost totally fit squad to choose from for today's match, and his selections will surely be interesting for all fans - particularly in midfield. Romain Saiss has done well in midfield since he came in for the last two matches, playing with both Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho. Morgan Gibbs-White efforts have been well received by fans when starting and when coming on as a substitute. However Ruben Neves' performances have been considered to be below par, so we wait to see what Nuno's view is. Jonny Alto is also said to be in with a shout, so will he be called back in to replace the impressive Ruben Vinagre. Also up front we wait to see whether Raul Jimenez will return to replace the somewhat hapless Traore, alongside the vastly improved Jota.pqs: qs:

Patrício, Doherty, Bennett, Coady, Boly, Jonny, Moutinho, Neves, Gibbs-White, Jiménez, Jota
Ruddy, Dendoncker, Saïss, Vinagre, Cavaleiro, Costa, Traoré
Surprised to see Jonny back so soon,good news.
As always,I think we will knick it.
Downside to that is that I am lousy in predicting football results..but even a blind hen finds a corn sometimes.
COME OOOONNNN MMEEEEE BABBIESSSSSS!
Referee today is Simon Hooper, having his first season in the PL. Coady, Bennett & Jota need to be careful as they are all on four yellows.
Great intervention by Coady to deny King

B'mouth haven't scored a second half goal in six games

Raul gets loud applause as he is replaced by Cavaleiro- he has had a good game and scored our goal
That takes us up to 7th position, one point behind Man Utd, who pay at Anfield tomorrow!!
We have a little bit of rub of the green again and that makes it much easier.
I think we conducted ourselves in a very professional matter,and after Rauls fifth goal of the season it was up to Cherries to break their deadlock.We stood firm and in the end I certainly thinks we deserved it.
It was a good team effort more than anything else.
A couple of mentions..Willy Boly had another great game.
Ruben Neves with a welcome improved performance.
Diogo Jota continues to look sharp,hope the injury isn´t too bad.
Our MOTM for me is Raul Jimenez.Fifth goal of the season and a hardworking and very valuable effort besides that.We simply is a better team when Raul is playing,and those 30 Mills doesn´t seem off the mark to me.Quality costs,and Raul is just that.
25 point with Liverpool and Fulham to go before halftime.
We are on our way to our best season since 1979/80.
Let the good times roll!

25 points from 17 games is so impressive. Happy days
No-one had a bad game but Bennett and Jiminez played particularly well. Gibbs-White played well again, it was good to see Neves play better than he had in recent matches and Jota also continues to look like he is finding his form so hopefully the injury isn't serious. Cavaleiro took his goal well and I think he was a little unlucky to lose his place on the back of half a bad match against Huddersfield and at the moment I would certainly start him over Costa or Traore.
A big test next against Liverpool but we've done well against the big boys so far so I'm hopeful we can get something.
Great overall performance from the team, however at the risk of being hypercritical, Patricio needs to work much harder on his distribution and Costa continues not to impress. I don’t want to write Helda off just yet but he has to improve his overall play, positional and effort. That miss was dreadful. Confidence in his boots perhaps? Don’t know but I’d pick Cav, MGW or Traore every time over him at the moment.
However, back to the positive. 25 reasons to be cheerful and so looking forward to Friday night!
