Match Thread: Aston Villa vs Wolves - Carabao Cup 4th Round


Local Challenge

By Wolves
October 30 2019

Wolves make the short trip to Villa Park this evening to reignite their local rivalry in the 4th Round of the Carabao Cup. This is the first of two matches within two weeks between the teams as the Premier League game at Molineux is on 10th November 

Wolves fans will be keen to see their team proceed to the next round of this competition at the expense of their local rivals, but it will undoubtedly be a challenging game, as Villa have settled well into the Premiership under Dean Smith and his team. Wolves will surely implement some rotation of players following the games last Thursday and Sunday which largely featured the same players. Sadly Willy Boly will definitely be missing and Ryan Bennett is also likely to be unfit. Whether some of the youngsters such as Dion Sanderson and Taylor Perry will get their chance during the game remains to be seen, but they are certainly getting closer.  

 

This board will hopefully carry some commentary during the game, and members are encouraged to post their observations for the benefit of those unable to follow it.

All change for tonight's game with only Cutrone retaining his starting place. Many of the Under 23 Squad start with Ryan Bennett captaining the side, whilst Rui Patricio is the only recognised first team player on the bench:

I agree with this selection, gives a much needed rest to the senior players but all these competitions and squad changes savages my prediction league status.

Villa have put out a relatively young side too, but with a little more experience than our team so it will be interesting. Lee Mason is the referee

Cheshire wolf

Good block by Kilman to deny Trezeguet

chicagowolf
30/10/2019 19:57
Kilman saves us from a goal but Villa waste the resulting corner

Cheshire wolf
30/10/2019 20:03
Good spell from Wolves, defending well then breaking effectively and pressing Villa when they are in possession. Just need to string together some good passes when attacking

Cheshire wolf
30/10/2019 20:04
Davis cons the ref to get a free kick outside our area

chicagowolf
30/10/2019 20:04
A few Wolves attacks but no decent shot. Campbell , 16 tears old, wide.

Cheshire wolf
30/10/2019 20:05
Good strong wall to block free kick

Dangerous Villa free kick. Wall holds.

Villa on top but cannot do much with it. Shot over the top

Cheshire wolf
30/10/2019 20:09
Kilman is doing good work in defence

I think it is interesting to see how the youngsters are playing very much in the same style as the first team.
El Ghazi is fed by Lansbury and he puts it under John Ruddy
Villa 1 Wolves 0

It’s hard to get up for this, given the teams, despite it being the Villa, and now we’me losing

I know what you mean Angry but I don't really think it's Villa kids. With the likes of Hourihane, Elmohamedy, El Ghazi, Taylor, Lansbury and Davis in their team they have a great deal more experience than our team.

I cant stand this competition personally and won't be sorry to see us out.. it's not much more prestigious than the checkatrade trophy these days lets be honest with every club putting out kids or people they want to sell in the shop window.

30/10/2019 20:22
Wolves free kick on the edge of the box. Neto shoots high

our last couple of trophies came from the L.Cup so I have a soft spot for it

Also interesting to dote that Gibbs-White isn't even on the bench again tonight!

Trezeguet throws himself to the floor in the area with Sanderson next to him. Ref gives a goal kick but says nothing to him!!

30/10/2019 20:27
Maybe Cheshire regarding villa , but have you seen Liverpools side tonight as an eg of how the big clubs treat the cup. 11 changes says it all

Cheshire wolf
30/10/2019 20:30
Two minutes plus added time to play

Cheshire wolf
30/10/2019 20:31
One added minute to play.

Ivybridge Wolf
30/10/2019 20:33
It’s bad news how this competition is often treated but I firmly maintain it’s something we can reasonably expect to see Wolves progress, even potentially win. To do that, with the likes of Oxford and Colchester in the quarterfinals, must be incentive to ‘have a go’.

Half time whistle goes and Wolves trail to the one decent attempt from Villa. Our team of largely inexperienced youngsters have worked hard and defended well, but need to do better when in possession of the ball. Cutrone has been anonymous whilst Neto, Campbell and Vinagre have made some good runs down the wings. They are up against a lot of experience in the Villa side and it shows!
Villa 1 Wolves 0

an angry wolf
30/10/2019 20:37
Im not watching but Cutrone not managing to score against the villa reserves doesnt bode well ( the Italian Andy Keogh)

Ivybridge Wolf
30/10/2019 20:39
Antonio Keotrone (Sm9) Surely not Angry!



https://i.pinimg.com/236x/74/97/b1/7497b1d1e231e8f83fc02db12bc473da--uk-football-sports-logos.jpg

chicagowolf
30/10/2019 20:42
since the only thing that happened was the goal, they just showed it from about nine different angles. Two things were clear; our defence was wrongfooted Vinagre and Bennett, but also the shot was not that hard and Ruddy got a hand to it. Think Patricio would have saved it but perhaps that is a bit unkind. In any case there was just ONE shot on target in total from the two teams.

Ivybridge Wolf
30/10/2019 20:46
I think you’re right Chicago ..... a bit harsh on Ruddy!

I don't disagree Angry, but L'pool still have the likes of the Ox, Origi and Milner in their side, because the teams have considerably bigger squads than we do, which I appreciate is a choice of Nuno's. We only have Ruddy & Bennett as our experienced players on the pitch.

Cutrone scores after good work by Perry!!

Andy Kutrone !!!

Cheshire wolf
30/10/2019 21:00
I as just going to say how Cutrone hasn't had many chances to shine because he has had very little supply.
Villa score from a free kick, which Elmohamedy gets the credit for
Villa 2 Wolves 1

Ivybridge Wolf
30/10/2019 21:01
2-1 . Really poor defending from a free kick, who were the two who fell asleep at the near post? Bad

Cutrone has a glorious chance one on one with Steer, but fluffs it.

Benny Ashley-Seal who is scoring well for the U23's coming on to replace Campbell

Cheshire wolf
30/10/2019 21:13
Another youngster Terry Taylor replaces Bruno Jordao

Cheshire wolf
30/10/2019 21:15
This is more of a game now than in the first half. Wolves still need to do better when in possession

Cheshire wolf
30/10/2019 21:20
Villa putting the pressure on us now, and our defenders are resorting lumping it up the pitch to clear it. Neto breaks into the penalty area and goes down under pressure from ElGhazi, but nothing given. Neto is replaced by Cristovao. Neto arguing with Nuno when he gets to the bench -clearly unhappy at being subbed!

chicagowolf
30/10/2019 21:22
Neto replaced by Flavio (who?) and Neto shows disapproval leading to a remonstration with Nuno. He will pay for that

Cheshire wolf
30/10/2019 21:23
Henry Lansbury makes a complete balls of a header when he should have scored, and is then replaced by John McGinn!

Cheshire wolf
30/10/2019 21:25
34,962 at Villa Park this evening

Cheshire wolf
30/10/2019 21:26
Taylor Perry assaulted rather than tackled by John McGinn who gets a yellow card

Cheshire wolf
30/10/2019 21:30
Two minutes plus added time to play. Wolves still seeking the equaliser for a penalty shoot-out

Cheshire wolf
30/10/2019 21:32
Six added minutes!! Where the hell tpdid that come from??

Cheshire wolf
30/10/2019 21:36
Cutrone gets a volley away but it goes wide under pressure. He really hasn't had a lot of chances tonight and has scored from one of them

chicagowolf
30/10/2019 21:41
Nice run out for the boys, with loads of inaccurate long passes. Let get back to some real football

an angry wolf
30/10/2019 21:41
Well we will leave the Keogh tag for a while then as he has finally scored in a 2-1 defeat to the villa reserves. According to 5 live villa should have won by more.. what a wretched week for the club with boly injured , Fosun perhaps looking to sell up and this

Cheshire wolf
30/10/2019 21:43
Final whistle is blown and Wolves (cubs) lose by 2 - 1. Nuno gave a lot of his young players a chance this evening against a vastly mor experienced Villa team and they certainly were not shown up. Kilman and Sanderson stood out for me amongst them whilst Perry did well setting up Cutrone for his goal. I don't think we'll ever really relax whilst Vallejo is at right back! Cutrone tried very hard up front largely on his own, but had very little service and managed to score our only goal. I hope the first team regulars have enjoyed their night off, and are looking forward to their trip to the Emirates on Saturday.

Andy Fincher

Good efforts from Kilman, Sanderson and Perry. Neto needs to grow up.
