Match Thread: Wolves vs Fulham

By Wolves
May 4 2019

After receiving an Honourary Doctorate from University of Wolverhampton (shared with the whole of the club) Nuno Espirito Santo will immediatley  set out to cement Wolves position in 7th place of the Premiership today, seeking to achieve European football for next season. 

Having secured three consecutive PL wins recently Interim Manager Scott Parker will be hoping to upset Wolves fans this afternoon, in the knowledge that Wolves have struggled this season against teams in the bottom six. Wolves fans however will be hoping for a repeat of the recent wins away at Watford and at Molineux over Manchester United and Arsenal. Wolves currently lead Everton by one point and Leicester City by three points in the chase for 7th spot, and a win today would move them one step closer to a place in the Europa League next season if Manchester City win the FA Cup.

Once again Nuno has a fully fit squad to choose from, which could possibly see a place within it for goalkeeper Will Norris and defender Max Wilman.

Our referee today will be Jonathan Moss

This board will hopefully carry regular updates on the progress of the game for those unable to follow it, and members are encourage to post their observations.

An unchanged line-up for the eleven today, but two changes to the subs bench with John Ruddy and Romain Saiss dropping out.
Line-up: Patricio, Bennett, Coady, Boly, Doherty, Dendoncker, Neves, Moutinho, Jonny, Jimenez, Jota

Subs: Norris, Vinagre, Kilman, Gibbs-White, Costa, Cavaleiro, Troare

Fulham field a front line of Sessignon, Cairney, Babel and Mitrovic so they certainly carry a threat

Rui shouts the free kick ais his then fumbles it & is lucky to get a way with it. Jota goes down in the area & is booked rightly for simulation

BBC website says he was clipped so shouldn't have been booked. Bit harsh after just being clipped and denied a free kick. Hope it's not going to be one of those afternoons...

Joao to Raul to Jota who stays onside but his shot is saved for a corner. Cleared to Neves but his long distance shot is high & wide

I didn't see him clipped Wolverina and it would have been a very soft penalty if given.

Joao sets up Jota and his shot grazes the post - on the wrong side!! He is doing so much good work but still needs to be careful now when tackling

F'ham have changed to playing three at the back and are trying to match us. Good attack from them ends with a very poor cross by Sessegnon

0-0 at half time, Wolves have been the better side but unable to break down the Fulham defence —— sound a familiar situation?

Finishing 8th is the same as 17th for all intensive purposes.. I'm not sure the players even want to qualify for Europe and if not should be shipped out for those with a modicum of ambition. Coady said in an interview recently he doesnt care whether the club finishes 7th or 8th so would imagine the players are playing to have a longer summer holiday which is outrageous if true.

Fulham are opening up at the back so Traore could easily exploit the space.

Cairney puts the ball over the bar, then Mitrovic wins a free kick in a challenge by Neves. At last Jota gets a free kick!!

This game shows why none of the strikers should win player of the season- when a team sits back its the same old garbage of being powder puff upfront. The wins against United/Arsenal mean nothing if we dont win this and get a European spot

Joao puts free kick in but it's just behind Boly. Referee making a name for himself.
Neves shot rebounds to Doc and he puts it away but is offside

Angry I think that just a case of the players following Nuno's mantra that "we just focus on the next game"

Jota smashed the ball against the bar

I hope so Cheshire, but listening to main stream media you often wonder whether the mass hysteria against the Europa infiltrates to players mentality... I want those cheap trip to eastern Europe next season lol

That's it all over!
We now need to support Man City in beating Watford at Wembley then we will be in Europe next season. A difficult game for Wolves this afternoon against a team who had nothing to lose and all to win. Jota had no luck in front of goal at all today. Next Sunday we play Liverpool at Anfield in another interesting game.

A really decent end to the season! Loved seeing Dr Nuno getting his cap and gown before the match, and enjoyed the football too, though wondered if it was going to end goalless for long periods. Fulham were that bad and not sure how Mitrovic missed his chance - they had another gilt edged chance too, however for us not to win it would have been a travesty! We huffed and puffed on some occasions however we played some very good stuff on others and their keeper was on excellent form ... sadly. Excellent volley by the Donk, great goal. Relief as well.
Jota was brilliant, did everything but score. A pest from start to finish but picked on unfairly by the keeper who was determined to keep Jota out! That half volley thunderbolt in the second half, what a shot, smashing the bar via Rico’s able hands!
A nice team performance, 3 additional points and good to see the presentations at the end in cool Wolverhampton sunshine. UTW!
