Been a battling performance, we are fighting well but nothing special going forward at the moment. Only bit of quality won us the penalty

Think we're doing ok. We're struggling in midfield. Dele's playing too deep for me. Traore's a fucking animal though. Sanchez and Tanganga struggling against him. Great pass from Reggie for the pen.

I think we are hanging onto the edge of the cliff by our fingernails - which we have bitten down to fuck all. If they don't run out of energy this will end badly for us. Last week we really improved in the second half against City and we will need to do that again, because it's all a bit pony at the moment. Skipp isn't having much of an impact and Tanganga will have to very careful because that tackle was a shocker and the ref will be watching him. Bringing Kane on wouldn't help much at the moment as we need to actually get into their half for home to have an effect and all hands are needed on the defensive pump.

Can’t fault the effort being shown by the players

No, and for all Wolves pressure, apart from Traore's chance, Lloris had very little to do. Son Lucas and Bergwijn are great when we're breaking but when we need someone to hold it up and give us a break, they just can't do it and it comes straight back.
Although Dele made the pen and scored it, he's an issue. He doesn't work half hard enough for me. He's constantly getting caught in possession which doesn't help either. But look, with that front 3, we're going to play counter attacking football. But don't think we're good enough in midfield to make it work long term. It's still 6 points and 2 clean sheets so happy days, but obvious changes and freshening up to do...

We still have huge problems with passing and keeping possession (and winning it back). There was a lot of the olden days tap it around a bit, get in huge bother in our own area, fight our way out then boot it aimlessly up the field going on and we were wide open for a half-decent Wolves player to wander in from the left which they did on several occasions. Nuno has a lot of work to do , but 6 points from two games, a lucky 3 points today, is a good start and he can get to work with a happy squad. Does anybody still think we don't need Harry (not Winks)? We looked like a different team when he came on.

With what should be a straightforward game against Watford next week (yeah I know),I wonder what sort of team we will see against Pacos on Thursday?

I don't think any of us would say we don't need him, he's a world class player. The question has always been....Does he need us ?

I'll take that. Not one of our better days but an away win and clean sheet is never something to be sniffed at.

I'd be looking to get Romero integrated into the first team ASAP i think. I think i'd be slightly more confident of having him alongside Dier than Sanchez.

The Scum are away to City next weekend while we're at home to Watford. A point for Norwich against Leicester and results going as you'd expect/hope could see us joint top and them rock bottom 🤣

Mrs. D was impressed with him - I don't think it was anything to do with football though. She wanted to know how such a well built (i think she said built not hung) bloke could be so quick. It was funny when little Lucas upended him, real David and Goliath stuff. Mrs D was not impressed with the Spurs performance though, oh no, not one bit and she said I was being a cunt for what I was saying during the Goons v Chavs fiasco, she definitely did not call me a 'cunt' but I could tell that was what she meant.

If only there was some kind of secret idol, like on Survivor that gave us the power to stop the season now - we get Champions League football, they get relegated. Luckily my brain has wiped out all those premature ejaculations that were being jizzed all over the place when we were top of the table after 9, 10, 11 and 12 games, this year we really will win the league - we have Nuno (NAC) Dos Santa Claus. I found something out yesterday! Mourinho is also a Dos Santos bloke, José Mário dos Santos Mourinho Félix is his full name, these Poturgish and Spaniels have really confusing names, when someone gives you their business card here it's fucking huge because they have so many names and then it turns out that they don't use any of them - our bank manager bloke has 127 names none of which is Estefano yet that is what we call him.

But that's his trouble... he can't.

He is a power-house of a player... but his end product is fucking pony... even crossing imo.

Think hench, Aaron Lennon...!

Clubs must have said...

"Look Adama, you're great at the big as a shed fast as fuck power-house cunt bit, but you are going to take that bag of balls, go over there with the reserve goalie and learn how to kick it in the fucking goal....!!!"

If he gets that right he is trouble... otherwise keep showing him on his weak foot and he'll keep shaking it into the stands...

Maybe he needs time as Lukaku looks a fucking beast right now and he was a row Z merchant for years...

I've said it elsewhere but Sam Maximan is another if given the right conditions would be a great player... he isnlazy as fuck but if that was whipped out of him and he did the ugly bits too.... he'd be trouble...!

Can't say I agree - I thought he had a really good game, worked hard and made a bunch of tackles. He does dwell on the ball sometimes though, I'll give you that.

Tanganga - had his hands full with Traore but battled hard. 6.
Sanchez - looks a different player. 7.
Dier - a little shaky but generally solid. 6.
Reguillon - got turned around a couple of times but did well enough. 6.
Skipp - has a bit of mongrel in him. Decent. 6.
Hjobjerg - rinse and repeat. Is the heartbeat of this club. 7.
Dele - covers a lot of ground, creates an extra number defensively and made a couple of super late runs. 8.
Moura - works hard. 6.
Son - largely anonymous, he's not a hold up forward. 5.
