Match Thread: Wolves vs West Ham United


Raul scores v West Ha

By Wolves
December 4 2019

Wolves face their third test in seven days tonight when West Ham are the visitors to Molineux for their Premier League clash.

Wolves fans will undoubtedly be hoping for a repeat of last season's 3 - 0 home victory over the Hammers in which Raul Jimenez scored twice so they can regain their place in the Top Six. However United will be buoyed from their win at Chelsea at the weekend, whilst Wolves will be hoping to avoid conceding another early goal as they did on Sunday to Sheffield United.

Team news is scarce at the moment, but it may be presumed that Romaine Saiss will return to the team following his suspension on Sunday, although Max Kilman put in a very creditable performance in his place. Other than Saiss the rest of the team put in a full 90 minuites against Sheffield United following their difficult game at Braga last Thursday, so the team sheet will make interesting reading.

 

Tonight's game is the first Wolves match to feature on Amazon Prime and kick off is scheduled for 7:30pm. This board will hopefully provide a commentary, and board members are encouraged to post their observations for those unable to follow the game.

Well, I met up with Chesh for a swift one pre Blades .... my better half was there. How fortuitous it turned out to be as she revealed to Chesh that we have Amazon Prime (Sm55) (Sm6) . Who knew.

Anyway, I’m settling down to watch, the programme has just started, sadly talking about other matches, the usual suspects and annoyingly the sound and pictures are out of sync., despite stopping and starting several times.

As suggested Saiss is in for Kilman (I was also impressed with him on Sunday), otherwise the same as v Blades.

This was a great Wolves display last season, hoping for at least a similar performance tonight, we have to get on the front foot ASAP and go for it. Hope Jota finds a bit of form, love him but was disappointed on Sunday, play and decision making.

UTW!

As Ivybridge says one change for tonight's starting eleven. Benny Ashley-Seal also gets a place on the bench:

Amazon impressing us with pitch side chat from Mathew Upton, fans favourite Clinton Morrison, compared by ex ITV man Matt Smith. Some decent compliments for our team, to be honest. Only trouble is we have to remember we are playing a side that beat Chelsea.

Nuno interviewed giving his usual style of giving all our secrets away ..... not.

Good break by Wolves from both sides . Most of the attacking coming from Wolves so far

Some decent attacking approach play from us. Just short of creating a clear cut chance. Encouraging

Great centre from Adama just too high for Raul.

Ivybridge Wolf
04/12/2019 19:48
Great play from Traore on the right and a very good cross. Come to nothing ... sadly. Interesting, during his pace break, West Ham attempted to scythe Adama down.

We’re moving, pressing and on top. Corner! Moutinho takes, a short one, another corner. That’s it, the Donk converts Moutinho’s corner!! Richly deserved!

Free kick to Utd in a dangerous position but well cleared by Saiss

Ivybridge Wolf
04/12/2019 19:58
Great we scored when on top - so often doesn’t happen in football. Moutinho gives a silly free kick away on edge of box - eventually defended very well, twice, from Saiss. Hasn’t got near a yellow card ..... yet(Sm13)

Shot by Fournells from edge of the area well stopped by Rui for a corner. Joao hurt his head in a challenge with Mark Noble

Ivybridge Wolf
04/12/2019 20:05
Great save from Rui with a lovely curling Hammers effort and a really positive punch away after the corner. Moutinho gets clattered. Injury break.

Since the goal I’d say West Ham have upped their game. Much more positive, searching passes and positive play. It’s the old cliche, we need a second goal

Half time whistle sounds and Wolves go in leading by a single goal. Some excellent play from our team and they have largely contained the threat from Utd too. Considering the number of games they have played since last Thursday they look very energetic, enthusiastic and well organised.

Lupinehowler
04/12/2019 20:28
Obviously the better team.
Obviously not far enough ahead.

Here we go again with no changes

Ivybridge Wolf
04/12/2019 20:33
Nice summing up Lupine. My thoughts exactly.

We were clearly the better side that half but Hammers showed enough in fits and burst to spell danger if we are complacent or fall asleep.

Good match though, enjoyable, encouraging and good to see some of our nice neat football. Some great passing from Neves, Moutinho and Coady. For me though, Traore was our best player that half. He’s really come on leaps and bounds ... long may it continue.

We’re out on the pitch, second half beckons.

UTW!!

Good move forwards by Jonny and he puts the ball on Donk's head but he can't keep it under the bar

Ivybridge Wolf
04/12/2019 20:44
First 5 minutes, very quiet but we have stepped it up a little since .... I don’t think Donk could quite get on top of that cross. Traore lively

Wolves controlling things pretty well, but we need another goal!! Rui comes out to stop Snodgrass who gphad been allowed far too much space.

Cheshire wolf

Yarmolenko replaces Snodgrass - he's a big unit and may well pose a threat

Ivybridge Wolf
04/12/2019 20:50
What a miss from Snodgrass - in acres, absolutely acres all alone in the right hand side of attack, terrible defending and Patricio comes to the rescue. Wow, what a wake up call for us. If Snodgrass’s touch had been better ........ !

Second required please!

Saiss goes so close with a header from a corner. Raul set free by Neves but can't direct his shot on target due to good defending by Ogbonna

Ivybridge Wolf
04/12/2019 20:54
Well we’re having a go again, Saiss wide by the margin of a lick of paint, Raul then wide, then Hammers attack.

Developing into a decent half.

Terrible, cynical challenge on Traore who was through. Yellow, decent free kick, Saiss glances just wide. Cresswell made the challenge. Bloody hopping mad me!

There we are - ten games unbeaten and another three points to lift us back into 5th place. A very good performance although I thought United were pretty average. Adama put in another MoM performance but all of our players were excellent from Rui forwards. Delighted to see Cutrone get his second PL goal for us and to see Nuno looking so happy leaving the pitch. All good.

Wolves 2 West Ham Utd 0

Ivybridge Wolf
04/12/2019 21:25
Very good win!

Competent and thorough deserved win too.

A couple of scares along the way however in general we worked so hard to make that win happen. Some great pieces of skill too, but a really good team performance.

5th again and 23 points. Excellent stuff. Hey Jude blasting out from the PA!

10 without defeat, onto Brighton. I’ll be there. More of the same please!!

UTW

PS - Traore got the Amazon MOTM. Fair enough. His form continues

Great win and good to get back to 5th. Rui made a couple of good save to keep us ahead at 1-0 and Moutinho makes himself available all the time. Jota looks a little frustrated to me as well. I know it's all about opinions but I can't see how Adama was mom. He will always be dangerous and a handful for opponents because of his pace and that was the case tonight but I'm not sure what he produced. Anyway the main thing is a welcome 3 points.
