Bratislava Stadium

October 24 2019

Wolves travel to Slovakia tonight to face the team currently at the top of their Europa League table. Slovan Bratislava have beaten Besiktas and come from behind to grab a draw at Braga and sit one point above Wolves.  

The Europa League challenge continuesd for Wolves tonight in somewhat controversial circumstances Slovan were ordered to play this game behind closed doors, but they have exercised an option to invite 21,00 children to fill their terraces, whilst Wolves are only allowed to have 200 supporters in the ground.

Ryan Bennett will not travel with the squad, but Nuno Espirito Santo has said he will take some of the Under 23 squad in case they are needed. 

Board members are encouraged to post their obeservations of the game for the benefit of others unable to follow it.

 

Please also remember that the game kicks off at the strange time of 17:55

Willy Boly playing at right centre back with Max Kilman on left. Good break by Vinagre down left wing but it overruns

Ugliest wolves kit Ive ever seen

Slovan's top scorer picks up a good pass, beats Coady and puts it in the corner. Not sure if it was deflected past Rui as he made no real effort to stop it
Slovan 1 Wolves 0

MGW takes a shot - good effort but wide of the post

Cheshire wolf

Good work again by Vinagre down left side & a sharp shot well saved

There's so much wrong with this game I dont know where to begin- firstly a so called ban on fans for racism results in a near capacity crowd. Secondly the wolves green kit means the players are effectively camouflaged so apart from viewing being tedious it means wolves players are probably struggling to pick each other out. Throw in the bizarre team selection leaving out Traore and starting with Cutrone who lets be honest looks a complete donkey and has the goal scoring threat of a ferret armed with a feather duster and it doesn't bode well.

Cheshire wolf

And with Angry's thoughts taken onboard I would also suggest this Slovan team will not be easy to beat. They are quick and their passing is largely accurate. Our passing is letting us down at times and we are yet to mount a serious threat on their goal.

One of their players has had several pops at Saiss and this time he gets a yellow card. One added minute to play. MGW puts a long distance shot over the bar.

Not sure how fit Jota is but we need him and Traore sharpish

It would be interesting to know just how much input Nuno has had in our summer signings as 25 million is a substantial amount of money for a player that cant hit a barn door. You don't need 100 million to sign a messi type of player for a team playing in the Europa league but someone with a keen eye for some talent wouldnt go amiss. I also don't understand the situation with Jimenez, his arm is clearly bothering him so if he needs surgery why doesnt he just get it.. broken bones heal on their own unless they are very serious so why is he still wearing a protective cast after all this time. I'd take them both off and stick Traore and jota upfront.

Cheshire wolf
24/10/2019 17:59
Here we go again - no substitutions that I can see

Cheshire wolf
24/10/2019 18:02
Traore is on and has had an immediate impact. Vinagre should have scored but our it into goalie's arms

Cheshire wolf
24/10/2019 18:03
Traore replaced Cutrone

an angry wolf
24/10/2019 18:04
The donkey is off, great run from Traore who replaced him but MGW witha feeble effort which looked harder to miss than score

Much better it seems all wolves ATM,
MGW needs replacing with Jota!!

an angry wolf
24/10/2019 18:05
Indeed Barmy , MGW is a championship standard player at best

Cheshire wolf

Save required from Rui to deny their goal scorer again

Cheshire wolf
24/10/2019 18:10
Wolves are mounting more attacks and getting into their box, but still not getting on the ends of balls for scoring opportunities

Cheshire wolf
24/10/2019 18:12
Saiss from outside the box with a left footed shot which bounced just in front of their goalie

Bizarre goal from saiss , keeper should have stopped it but lucky it went in as our "strikers " could go on all night without scoring

Cheshire wolf
24/10/2019 18:17
Raul pushed over (gently) in the area and gets up to convert the penalty
Slovan 1 Wolves 2

1-2 to wolves , that should silence the little @#$%& in the crowd for a bit.. the screeching of their voices has meant Ive had the game on mute since the 20th min

Cheshire wolf
24/10/2019 18:22
That's a good idea Angry as I lost the commentary then too!!!

an angry wolf
24/10/2019 18:23
No coincidence since Cutrone and MGW went off the game has turned in our favour - hopefully we can bring a semi decent striker in maybe in January and ship MGW out to the lower leagues where he belongs.

Good goalkeeping from Rui to deny their CF

Traore earns a corner & Wolves go close from Doc

Cheshire wolf
24/10/2019 18:30
Dendoncker replaces Saiss who I think has played v well, but he is recovering from injury too

Cheshire wolf
24/10/2019 18:33
Good attacking from Vinagre & Jota. Nuno's assistant was yellow carded presumably for disagreeing with the ref over a foul on Jota!

Cheshire wolf
24/10/2019 18:36
Ten minutes plus added time to play & Wolves are the better team now, passing the ball round smartly & accurately

Cheshire wolf
24/10/2019 18:40
Jota booked for a clash with Medvedev then immediately commits a stupid challenge, gets a deserved yellow & inevitable red card

Cheshire wolf
24/10/2019 18:41
Slovan gain 10 yards from where fouls occurred but then waste free kick. Two mins plus AT

Cheshire wolf
24/10/2019 18:43
Four minutes extra to play

Cheshire wolf
24/10/2019 18:47
Raul gets a yellow for a silly pull back of a player

Cheshire wolf
24/10/2019 18:50
That's it Wolves win 2 - 1 in a hard fought game but they played much better in the second half and deserved it. A great run of results away from home.

Never a dull moment in that game but we were way better in the second half, a lot of it due to Traore. Nobody really surprised. Jota got his cameo; not sure how many minutes he was on. Does he now miss the Newcastle game or the next Europa tie?
Great result

Great result. Thought Kilman did ok. Nothing flashy but he looks a better bet than Vallejo.
I never thought I would say this, and I'm ready for the flack, but right now, maybe only for the time being, I would play Saiss instead of Neves. Saiss has done well when I've seen him play whereas Neves hasn't been consistant so far this season.
Brainless from Jota, especially as he is just getting back to fitness and surely there is a place for him in the attack.
Overall a good performance though, especially second half, and in a good position now.

24/10/2019 19:21
Jota lost his head but it was easy to see why he was riled up given he was essentially assaulted minutes earlier being pushed away from the ball with no reprisal from the referee. Neves relies too heavily on his long shots instead of playing killer passes- if you hit 100 shots per season by the laws of averages at least half a dozen will go in. I wish he would cut down the continual blasting of the ball from 35 years out like we're a lower league team buying the metaphorical lottery ticket to get a goal.

A good result against a limited team, they may be " champions " but in a cr*ap league with results in the Europa league in the last 3 seasons including defeats to the renowned Jelgada , Lyngby , PAOK and the mighty Balzan so it's not really a great shock we beat them.
