Wolves fans with amusing / interesting comments ahead of facing Newcastle United

Wolves fans watched on as new manager Bruno Lage kicked off with three Premier League defeats.

The team not playing badly but unable to score a goal or pick up a point.

Next three games have brought six points, finding the goals to beat Watford 2-0 and Southampton 1-0, though losing 2-0 at home to surprise promoted package Brentford.

Wolves fans chatting ahead of the game and wondering if they can make it three wins against relegation candidates  and bring to a close a seemingly never ending run of 1-1 results between the two clubs…

Wolves fans commenting via their Molineux Mix message board:

‘Really want to see that early season pressing style back today, Newcastle have pace on the break but can’t finish their dinner. Think it’s important we start to see a return to that style sooner rather than later and fingers crossed it comes today along with a tasty three points.’

‘Wilson still out who I feel would’ve scored today. St Maximum is a bloody good player, need to stay tight on him, let him know he’s in a battle from the start. Hope our fan’s expectations aren’t too much for this, we’re always rubbish when we expect anything from a game.

Big day for me, viewing a house then getting on the beers and a nice 3pm kick off, should be a good atmosphere too.’

‘Big game this one three points just before the international break to push us up the league before Villa and Leeds away will do confidence the world of good, another Jimenez goal please!’

‘We are well due a 4-0 smashing of someone COYW let’s make it today.’

‘Leaving soon. 250 mile round trip for me. Should have just enough fuel but hoping one of the garages on Birmingham New Road has some diesel and not too long queues to be safe for getting home!’

‘The last time we won at home was the 9th of May. It’s time we won at home again.’

‘We’re winning this, fakt.

3-1 home win. It’s long overdue.’

‘Wow. It is going to be slightly wet today!’

‘The only thing that I’m worried about is the thought of Saint-Maximin running at our defence.’

‘I don’t like games against sh.t teams.

Turn up, expect to win, get hit on the counter by ASM.

A pessimistic 1-2.. sorry folks!’

‘An optimistic 3-0 win. A good start and a first half Raul goal will get Molineux bouncing.’

‘If we score first we will win. If they score first it will be a draw.

My heart is telling me we will score first. 2-0.’

‘I’ve watched full Newcastle games quite a few times this season as I have a few Newcastle supporting friends. Twice live at the stadiums (West Ham and Leeds home) and three times on TV (Villa away, Southampton home, Watford away) and I think they’ve looked quite decent. They seem to be a lot more attacking than last season and I think are generally harder to beat, despite not getting a win yet. They also seem to get no luck with injuries. Against Watford last weekend they should have been out of sight after the first half and had three or four very good chances to win it on the second half.

Only say this, as generally, everyone seems to think they’re awful. They’re not. We always seem to have difficulty beating them at home. Their slightly more attacking style this season may suit us more at Molineux though. They need to go for the three points to get a first win under their belt, so we could exploit the space. We score first and we win, fall behind to an early goal (as we usually seem to do at home) and we could be in trouble.

I feel it’s almost about who performs better between Adama and ASM. Let’s hope the oiled up one is the one that makes the biggest impact. 1-0 Wolves.’

‘Traore and ASM are quite different players though, despite having some similar attributes.

I think I know why people, me included, compare the two (they’re black and they’re fast) but their games are different. ASM is a more rounded player (I won’t say intelligent cos I hate that accusation being levelled at Adama – it isn’t daft to keep doing what you’re good at) and Adama can beat more men from a standing start.

My missus is a Geordie and I lived in Gateshead for a bit. F.ck me, they think they’re special:’

‘I think Traore and ASM are the similar, not for the stereotypical reasons (their speed and skin colour), but because they both take responsibility for carrying their teams up the pitch and are able to create opportunities out of nothing, mainly because of their pace and trickery. Don’t think there are any other players in the Premier League capable of creating opportunities after starting from anywhere on the pitch. They’re both pretty unique. I agree they are a little different in a few ways. Think Traore is a little faster and stronger, while ASM is a little more aware and skilful, and more likely to score or make an assist.’

‘Have to say, I’ve been up here 20 years now and I bloody love Newcastle (not so much Gateshead!).

Such a beautiful, friendly, compact, and entertaining city.

I’m even beginning to like the Geordies, although I always like Sunderland to beat them in the derby. Bring them down a peg or two!’

‘Ah I think you’re actually talking sense about Traore and ASM, I think it’s sometimes a slightly lazy comparison but the similarities you mention are correct.

I prefer Gateshead to Newcastle. It’s a bit like Wolverhampton or Dudley or Bilston to Birmingham.

A pub crawl down Low Fell is worth the effort.’

‘Big key and it is fairly obvious, is how we deal with the runs of Willock from midfield and of course Saint Maxim. Saint Maxim has been playing down the middle for Newcastle recently and I really hope we dont leave Coady too exposed to him or any of our defenders for that matter. I would be sorely tempted to play Boly today. It was a mistake not to play him against Brentford I thought and maybe a mistake if we dont play him today.’

‘Hope Traore pics up tips from fast Max and bangs in a brace.’

‘This has got to be a home win. 4-1’

‘Definitely a bogey team at Molineux. The last time we beat them at home in the league was 1993 and then a cup game 10 years later. A win is long overdue, let’s hope Bruno is the manager to break the jinx.

Wolves to win 1-0.’

‘I watched Newcastle – Leeds and thought it was a poor quality game. Leeds looked an injury to Raphinha away from really struggling, while Newc looked like they would definitely go down if they lost ASM.

For me we need to forget the grim 1-1 draws under Nuno, go out and attack the barcode w.nkers and win 2-0 or 3-0.’
