Big Dave done the Cowley bros today. Up the Donny!!

He should be setting the tone for the players. I’m all for passion but now he will be banned from the touch line.

I wouldn’t accept a player being banned for poor behaviour so I don’t accept it from the manager.


Really? Because Livermore was banned for 7 games last season for sheer stupidity.

Barnes has just absolutely smashed one in. He’s off running and celebrating literally before anyone else even moves.


Some strike that. Shame his game time is so limited there.

Field dropped and Leko subbed at halftime. Not good. Charlton won again also.

Love how Roy always gets a result when people start writing him off. Great man.

What would you have done differently?

Edwards and Phillips were ineffective and can have no complaints about being withdrawn. The other was an enforced substitution otherwise Austin would have featured.

Not a lot wrong there in my view..


Livermore has to be one that comes off and Austin should have been introduced not Diangana.


Though both Diangana and Pereira should have started the game.

His two yellows came from decisions proved by television to be incorrect,  let's hope the ban is suspended.

Played well today, glad he made the penalty save and started doing his talking on the pitch. Next stop, consistency please.

Nothing wrong with the team selection - and the subs helped rescue a point, again, like in the week, and at Luton.

It is endless bashing on Livermore for the sake of it, just because your mate isn’t in the side and on the bench.

The days of watching Brunt potter around in midfield are over thankfully.


If Kanu had missed that chance he'd get crucified. Nothing to do with Brunt.


Line up totally wrong imo, and wrong players taken off.

More Livermore bashing for no reason. For the first time in a few years the central 2 are not the problem. His chance was deflected, not sure what else he could have done.


Hit it literally anywhere else into the gaping empty net in front of him?

Very concerned now with the team selection and subs. Another poor result based on balance of play. Thanks to Captain Marvel who can't convert a 2 yard open goal.


Off to watch some top class Rugby League now. Back later.

You predicted they would get relegated last year Jacko....they made Europe and were minutes away from an FA cup final 😉.

Bookmakers currently rank them 8th favourites, so not that ridiculous a statement.

2 English clubs in the final last year, a semi finalist in 2018, English winner 2017, English runner up 2016. We have also started to dominate in the Champions League again in the last 2 years, suggesting we are currently back in a bit of an English domination period again like the mid to late "noughties".

The last time we dominated Europe back in the mid to late 2000's, both Middlesbrough and Fulham reached the UEFA cup final, while both Bolton and Villa only went out in the knockout rounds due to fielding severley weakened teams.

Most neutral observers will look at Wolves and say they are one of the names in the hat who could win this competition. They have just gave Torino, the 7th best team in Europe's third best league (co efficient rating) a hiding in Turin. Wolves will most likely get through the home leg and into the group stages with sides who don't have their resources. I expect them to make the knockout phase, and then it is anyone's guess.


Can only assume you didn't watch the actual game, Torino dominated it and it would be no surprise to see them win 2 nil at the Custard Bowl.

Thought Torino might atleast cause them some problems at home, but Wolves are swatting them aside. May have to accept that with their squad make up and all of their quality, they will be one of the favourites to win the Europa League this year.

Only their smallish squad and a possible tilt at a top 4 place might derail them.




Hahahaha, brilliant mate. Seriously good.  ;D

This going to be a case of fans slagging off players then get offended when they say something back, it tickles me massively when you seen fans giving it out then proper go off on one when one says something back to him ;D


So far it seems to be more of a case of fans criticising Johnstone then doing u-turn as soon as the man himself gets involved. Sycophants.

I see Sam is giving some grief back to whoever that is.


Much prefer him to concentrate on improving than biting back at the fans.

Today only makes the decision not to pick Archer at Edgbaston look worse.


Superb bowling.

Bradley was a converted Centre back, could definitely tackle. The Mowbray title winning team would be a better example.

Watching last night I kept thinking what a difference Shane Long would make to this team.
I know Austin isn't fully fit yet, but the times their defenders weer allowed time to bring out without challenge, just wouldn't happen.
Credit to Zohore , did some great runs/closing down

Think we should go for long in Jan


Indeed, he would make it considerably worse.  ;D

Here's a pic from when the Reading player had their first touch to when they took the shot.
If you were to point fingers Phillips is the one who should be closing him down.  I think that's threw Sawyers off as if Phillips wasn't dealing with it, it should have been him.  Livermore was the one who made the most effort to stop that, covered more ground to close down than either of the other two, but still gets the blame.

Defence did nothing wrong there, Ajayi has to go with his man.




From those 2 stills Sawyers is the big disappointment. Phillips has to cover the pass to the left winger which forces Ejaria inside onto his right foot. Sawyers hardly moves and Livermore tries to get across. The man Sawyers is closest to can easily be passed on to JL. Sawyers has to go to the ball.

I agree that our number 10 needs to be more attacking and threatening the goal but is that Krovinovic's strength. I think he may be better playing and attacking from deep, he really does remind me of Koren.


Looks so much like him, the way he moves etc. Don't think for a minute he's as good as RoKo and certainly doesn't seem to have his long range shooting ability or composure one on one. Early days though and still a very promising player.

Read online that he played well last night. I also saw a moving gif of him over stretching when going into a tackle late and high. From that I thought it should've been a red card and a penalty. Not given.


Very lucky not to be starting a 3 match ban and costing his team a point.

26 year old professional goalkeeper
He’s had 2 solid games in a row

Just think about that ......


Also what constitutes solid? He didn't have anything else to do tonight? The camera save from the free kick Livermore stupidly gave away? I'd have saved that.

25
He pretty much has to play going forward. Diangana nothing like as good today starting as he was off the bench.
