so are the QFs in Germany just one leg affairs ? What a mess this season is with this covid hoax.

Yes the Quarter Finals start next Monday (10th) when Utd will play Copenhagen. The winner of tonight's game will play the winner of the Sevilla v Roma match in a one-leg game. The semi final will be played on Sunday 16th, with the Final on Friday 21st.

Cheers Cheshire, I suspected that was the case. I must admit, I've been half hearted about the premier league campaign after realising we wouldn't achieve the impossible by finishing above Manure/Leicester but this evening is a different matter entirely. What a shame molineux will be empty for arguably our biggest game since ...........1972?

Now there’s a debate, what is our biggest game since 1972? I’d say City ‘74 Forest ‘80, Arsenal 1998 or Watford last year (our semi’s), possible / probable candidates as likely bigger BUT if we get to the semi’s in this competition, well ................ ? 😁

Positives for the night - I believe we have the better team, individually and collectively, a great and better manager (of course), capable of scoring some great goals, play for the full 90 minutes (disregard the Chelsea effort), a generally mean defence.

Negatives - post ‘restart’ we haven’t been consistent enough in attack (we are scorers of great goals, not great goal scorers), Olympiakos are no mugs and we didn’t exactly murder them over there, despite them being down to 10 for 60 minutes plus, no fans, 1-1 is a dicey first leg scoreline and can’t be relied on to sit on any laurels.

I think the positives outweigh the negatives and we’ll win but I do hope we take the game to Olympiakos to a certain degree. Having said that, a measured first half and ramping it up a bit in the second half wouldn’t phase me too much. As I say though, the score we achieved in Piraeus is a good one, but cannot be relied upon to deliver a quarter final berth.

We’ll do it 👍🐺🐺

So Nuno has opted for a 3 - 4 - 3 line-up to start tonight's game with Podence and Adama to put pressure on from the wings and hopefully feed Raul in the centre. Line-up:

I’m sure Ivybridge Wolf will be able to confirm whether our commentator tonight sis speaking Flemish or some other European language!! Our referee tonight is from Poland.one minute’s silence observed prior to kick in memory of the COVID-19 victims. Then it lagged and caught me out!!!

First effort to Raul but just wide after a defensive mistake. Wolves get their first corner. A lot of insecurity in the Ol’kos defence already

Jonny earns a penalty after a mistake by their keeper

What a bully their keeper is, pushing little Podence over like that. Great penalty, 1-0. Great start 👍

As for the lanuage ..... I’m going for standard Dutch

Good play by Wolves from back to front ends with Adama getting another corner., then another! Pitch seems quite slippery tonight & Jonny has just slipped over and hurt his right knee needing treatment. Seems he’ll be OK. Saiss gets flattened in the area & ref blows up before Raul nets the ball. Free kick given to the goalie,,

Re: Match Thread: Wolves vs Olympiakos

Jonny crumpled on the floor with nobody near him, worrying. The pass Neves played to Traore immediately afterwards was fantastic as was Traores control.

The resultant corner ends in the back of the net by Jimenez but foul by Saiss on the keeper. Jonny is finished for the day. Innocuous. Vinagre replacing him.

Jonny’s injury must have been worse than it seemed as he is replaced by Vinagre

By the way, the winners here tonight play Seville in the quarters

Really good break by Oly and a super save by Rui to hi right. Ref thought He didn’t touch it!!

Re: Match Thread: Wolves vs Olympiakos
Ivybridge Wolf 06 August, 2020 20:22
Wow. That was close ...... Patricio, thus far a spectator pulls off a great save after a quick Greek attack ..... worrying the extreme ease of their attacking play there.

Another strange decision by ref against Adama, then gives a throw in against us. Superb play by Adama brings excellent control by Raul who sets up Neves for a shot but blocked for a corner. Joao puts it in low but to no avail

Re: Match Thread: Wolves vs Olympiakos
Cheshire wolf 06 August, 2020 20:32
Only player beats the offside to get into plenty of space and a good pass back which is put in off Neves. VAR checking for offside but I think Doc just played him onside. Going on for ages whilst they have a drink and disallowed!!!!!

Re: Match Thread: Wolves vs Olympiakos
Ivybridge Wolf 06 August, 2020 20:34
Bloody hell.

Some appalling defensive play, cut through us like butter, and we just didn’t pick up the spare man.

Now checking for offside ..... whats going on here !! Taking ages. Hells, bells, offside by a micrometer. We’ve dodged a huge bullet there, enormous. We’ve been the recipient of such decisions so very much mixed feelings for me. Great we’re still winning.

It’s a simple equation, we need another goal.
