Match Thread: Wolves v Southampton Saturday 19th October 3pm

In a strange international break week where England were pathetic versus the Czech Republic (later defeated at home by Northern Ireland) followed by the utter destruction of a poor Bulgarian set up (both on and definitely off the pitch), normal service is resumed this weekend! Wolves welcome Southampton back to Molineux to get the Premier League back on track. It goes without saying that this is another important fixture and following our great 8 days or so prior to the internationals we really need to impose ourselves on a side currently below us in the table. A Wolves win might see us climb up to another 4 places whilst defeat would place the Saints level on points but only a home capitulation could see them leapfrog us …….

Of Course, it's happened before and seems incredible that match was now over 12 years ago ...... Wolves 0-6 ...... remaining one of the weirdest matches I've personally witnessed where we actually played quite well.

Nothing like that on Satuday though, surely, and I sincerely hope that Nuno keeps to his best 11 available which for me includes all three of Boly, Coady and Bennett at the back, and of course finding a spot for man of the moments Adama Traore.

This match thread starts a little earlier this week, but as always please add your thoughts and words of encourage for the lads in the build up and during the match .... UP THE WOLVES!!!

Its time these international breaks were scrapped given how tedious it is watching England play countries that barely have a heart beat. The Czech republic were decent but how many times have we seen Bulgaria/san marino/ Lithuania type of matches disrupting the club fixture list. The major tournaments should be like the FA cup - a straight knockout competition with the seeded countries maybe coming in during the second round for eg.

Regarding the racism in Sofia, it's of no real shock. I went to Sofia earlier this year and even though I'm white found it to be full of the most obnoxious people I've ever encountered. No one can tar an entire city/country with the same brush but the aggression levels in cafes/restaurants/hotels/on the street are on another level to anything I've encountered- no idea why. Incidentally, Southgate and co whilst doing nothing wrong are hardly heroes .. if they really wanted to make a stand they would have walked off the pitch which I suspect had they been losing instead of battering a side would have been the case.

Boly to Raul to Joao but he puts it over the bar. Joao unlucky trying to set up Cutrone earlier

Valery gets a yellow for second stupid foul. Wolves
Mount a good attack from free kick.
Weak shot from Ings easily collected by Rui, but Redmond showing the threat his pace presents. Looks like Vallejo coming in to replace injured Bennett

Ings jumps in front of Boly to win soft free kick on edge of our area - comes to nowt.
Glorious pass from Boly for Raul to score but flagged for hand ball

Raul gets a yellow card too

Nasty foul on Neves from behind by Ings but no punishment

S’hampton posing more of a goal threat than Wolves at the moment

Cheshire wolf

Raul gets our first goal following up an effort from Cutrone
Wolves 1 S’hampton 0

VAR overruled goal possibly for offside against Cutrone

I hope this is not going to be one of those days.

Poor header by Vallejo means Coady has to foul & gets yellow card

Half time whistle after 5 extra minutes. Raul has ‘scored’ twice - first ruled out correctly as he handled ball, second ruled out by VAR. for ? offside by Cutrone. Wolves have had the better attempts but S’hampton have also posed a threat at times. I hope Jota will get a run out in second half. Traore hasn’t had a lot of involvement yet!

Doc replaced Neves at beginning of second half

Stupid pass by Vallejo gives Ings a chance - taken by Rui

19/10/2019 15:12
Hi Cheshire - just got in - two disallowed goals? Third time lucky, hopefully!

0-1 It is one of those days!

Cheshire wolf

Dreadful effort from Cutrone!!
Sorry Wolverina - Coady misjudges the ball and Ings gets it and slots an easy goal. Vallejo was involved too with another poor pass.
Wolves 0 S’hampton 1

19/10/2019 15:16
Well, luck for some! 0-1 (Sm17)

19/10/2019 15:17
Just have to score two then!

Cheshire wolf
19/10/2019 15:20
Doc earns a penalty!

19/10/2019 15:23
FINALLY, Raul......

Cheshire wolf
19/10/2019 15:23
Coolly despatched into corner by Raul
Wolves 1 S’ham 1

Jota replaces Cutrone who has - as Angry says - been somewhat powderpuff!!

Billericay Wolf
19/10/2019 15:27
Come on Jota.

Cheshire wolf
19/10/2019 15:41
Not much to report at the moment - cancelling each other out. Some good link up play between Jota & Raul then Traore takes an extravagant shot which nearly hits corner flag!!

Cheshire wolf
19/10/2019 15:49
5 mins to play and someone needs to come up with an idea other than crossing it to close to the tall Angus Gunn in their goal!! Ward-Prowse has the ball for a free kick in a dangerous position! Well kept out by Rui. Corner comes to nothing

Cheshire wolf
19/10/2019 15:54
Three added minutes to try and salvage a win!!

Cheshire wolf
19/10/2019 15:59
All finished at 1 - 1. Not a good game - Southampton are anpoor team and they made us look poor too. Cutrone was too lightweight up front, and Vallejo was a liability at the back at times which also had an impact on Coady’s poor performance. Raul did his best and was unlucky on first two efforts.
This is your reporter Cheshire Wolf signing off the southern coast of Turkey!! Home tomorrow!

19/10/2019 16:00
Well, I suppose it's a point - but disappointing really!

19/10/2019 16:01
Safe journey home, Cheshire - thanks for your efforts!

The ugly side of football unpredictability rears its ugly head yet again- after city we get this. You sometimes wonder if it's 98% luck with the 2 % a sprinkling of talent infront of goal. Look at Watford today nearly beating spurs away as yet another eg

19/10/2019 19:55
Losing Bennett was a blow. Clearly Vallejo doesn't look like he belongs at this level. But we struggled against Southampton last season & got turned over at their place. Some decisions could have gone our way & we'd be celebrating 3 points. Fine margins.
