BT SPORT have tried to bail out the scouse bull saying it was taken out of context. Very Poor and not a good enough statement by BT. there should still be an apology for any offence their error may have caused.

He should have come out by now and apologised not BT

havg moaned about wolves through the game why do we only hear what we heard and not the before .

13 Aug 2018 22:18:48
Macmanaman is still an arsehole and BT are just as bad for defending the indefensible and not shovelling him out the door! What wolves fan in future would want to listen to anything he had to say on any future match’s involving our team? Up the Wolves! ⚽️😉👍.

13 Aug 2018 23:40:55
They have a week to make some plausible explanation of what he meant.

They'll say something like "He just meant he didn't like their use of wingbacks".

13 Aug 2018 23:46:36
I shall be leaving BT then if this is their attitude.

14 Aug 2018 06:00:54
what did he actually say?

14 Aug 2018 09:03:27
Now decided to move away from BT sports, only had it for the 5:30 game on Saturday, but the football coverage is crap
Macmanaman you’re a disgrace. Smacks of jealousy, Totally disrespectful and typical of someone who doesn’t want the so called top six to be challenged. Well here’s the reality, there’s some lesser clubs who now have very rich owners who run there business affairs far more professionally.

14 Aug 2018 15:56:01
missed what he said can someone clarify? word for word?

Thought your boys played well yesterday. You have some real talent in that team. I've read through a lot of the posts and reactions from yesterday and it's pretty good stuff.

But what I would say is you need to get to 40 points as soon as you can and not look any further until you have. This league will be brutal and every team will have you sussed by the time they get to play you again. I'm not saying you will struggle but it will be harder to watch than last season (which by the way I did and thought you were incredibly entertaining)

Don't be harsh on your players if they aren't performing like they did last season. They are playing against the very best there is and it will seem like they aren't trying. Believe me they will be but just won't have the time or room or even the pace to show it like they did in the championship.

Anyway, all the best for the rest of the season and please please please save your best for any team playing in red.

12 Aug 2018 16:39:41
Thanks for your comments, toffee ace, much appreciated, your team played well, look forward to the return match, #innunowetrust.

12 Aug 2018 19:07:04
Enjoyed the game Toffee. My nephew lives up there and is one of yours. Tried to make him see sense but to no avail!
Draw was fair IMO. What price for Neves? (not that he is going anywhere) .

12 Aug 2018 21:19:59
Your nephew is one truly discerning fan. I remember us trying to buy Moutinho when he was around 21. Tried 3 times but couldn’t get it over the line. Neves is ridiculous for his age. If he does it in the prem this season, and the signs are already there, then I would say you have an asset that only about 5 teams in world football could afford.

He will be hard to keep, every club is a selling club. But until that time comes, just enjoy having the player and who knows, he might do a Terry and give you his best years.

Have a good season lads, enjoy Goodison when you come, the crowd will welcome you with open arms (well sort of 😂)

12 Aug 2018 22:18:20
Cheers Toffee ace, top post and a pretty astute assessment of things. Good luck to you for the rest of the season, I always liked Everton its a proper family club ;) COYW.

13 Aug 2018 12:40:52
Thanks Toffee Ace

Have a good season and enjoy your new signings as we will ours.

13 Aug 2018 14:39:38
What kind of comment is that? You have to reach 40 points before you reach 50?

13 Aug 2018 16:55:49
It’s a fact isn’t it? 10 20 30 40 50 yep in my reckoning 40 still comes before 50.

13 Aug 2018 17:39:38
Thanks Toffee Ace. Very fair.
How much could Neves be worth one day?
Quite a few years ago we had a young player who looked promising. Someone may or may not have said he would be worth £100m one day. Anyway, the statement stuck. I don't know where that player is now but I do know we have another young player in Neves who will be worth £100m one day!

13 Aug 2018 21:37:03
I would disagree with some things said.

A) we made more mistakes than Everton made chances. The only joy was Richarlson and his diving and play-acting.

B) our creative players were experiencing very clever niggling fouls - at one point Jota was taken down and the free kick went Everton's way. Nuno needs to learn a lot of teams in this league lack the pace Wolves have and they will use dirty tactics.

C) our players weren't 100%. The league being harder doesn't mean passes go astray or creativity dries up. We were passing square balls and go back for the first time in a long time.

D) the team is a lot younger and many are new to the Prem and it was a nervous game. We will grow in confidence.

E) Neves has signed and so have many others. We got told Neves wouldn't stay and then we signed João and Rui. Not every club is a selling club. That is something said by certain fans yet Real, Barca, etc aren't. We aren't. Fosun have ambition. And have brains.

F) we know Everton had a bad season last term but Wolves were playing at 50% and we still got a draw against a team that is top half.

For me, we will be looking to win in Liverpool.

Everton played well, Wolves weren't at their best. I wouldn't worry though. We just need to learn to overcome teams that want to stop our attackers from running. And our defence needs to learn that Prem players will "simulate" fouls.

I was worried until the game ended. I thought we would struggle for goals. But to score twice in such circumstances was amazing. I now think 40 points will be easy. And I think we can get top half.

Remember Everton, we will only get better and grow in confidence. We won't show the same fear next time. And mark my words, that is what it was. We backed off.

On a separate note, why are our fans on EandS being so nasty about Rui? The guy had great distribution! Did anyone see the so called "modern keeper" for the Toffees?

13 Aug 2018 21:50:36
Zeli Ismail. One of the youth coaches is supposed to have said it when he's was 15/ 16? At Walsall now i believe.

13 Aug 2018 23:13:47
Flawed- can you not just show a bit of humility fella?! The Everton fans have come on and generally been complementary, haven't patronised (like many do) and your response is basically 'yeah well we are only going to get better'! Which is nonsensical because EVERY team in the league will most likely improve as that's the nature of development. Also your A-Z missed one rather glaring point and that is that Everton (like most teams in the league) will improve a whole lot as well! Especially considering they had none of there deadline day super stars playing in actual fact it probably wasn't a bad time to play them! But to say 'Everton played well, Wolves weren't at the best' is frankly just childish cause if that's the case it only our own fault! You speak as if all clubs haven't had the same opportunity to prepare, like we've had to rush things which is just nonsense! And yes the league being harder DOES mean passes go a stray because suddenly people have half the time to make the passes! Boly was a classic example, worst game I've seen him have in a Wolves shirt but that's simply because he was playing at a Champ pace! He will adjust but like all of um it will take time/ games.
I agree with some of what you said, especially the part about learning how to play the Prem Refs and how there were MANY positives. Just wonder if we couldn't be a little more fair in the assessment of both teams performances, rather than making out that Everton were lucky to get anything (which wasn't the case for the game I saw)?
Also hadn't seen the stick Rui got but frankly those persons need to sort themselves out cause he made two TOP saves and generally looked class! COYW ;)

14 Aug 2018 10:29:47
Bullysboy, you have a really good understanding of the premier league and your expectations are very much in perspective.

FlawedPrefection, I get some of what you say but you don’t know the premier league like some of your fellow posters do.

The niggling fouls have nothing to do with the pace of your team, you’re in the top league now, that’s why you get them. And the sooner your team starts to do it the better for you.

This league will stifle your creativity and passing and you will need to find a work around. If you think you can just up your game to suit then your mistaken. The establishment are already a few steps ahead of you. If you think of giving 50% more then so will Everton or any of the other teams that have been in the league since it was formed.

To think you’re not a selling club is just naive. Barcelona and Real Madrid have lost players they wanted to keep. But even if you’re right about those teams, do you honestly think Wolves are at that level. Of course not. Accept you have to sell and concentrate on getting top dollar. Stones Lukaku Rooney. They all leave, not much can be done.

After reading your post and genuinely we’re all entitled to an opinion, I think you’ll be frustrated with this league as it won’t be the cake walk you have in mind.

Focus on consolidating your premier league status then once your safe (and I never mentioned 50 points like some posters suggested) at 40 points, even if it’s a soon as Christmas you will have an absolute ball the rest of the season. And then fair play to you.

I will be watching your games because as I said in previous posts, you play some cracking stuff and this league is a better league with Wolves in it. Long may it continue.

12 Aug 2018 13:49:01
great point for wolves considering we weren't at our best
I believe we will get better.
don't forget we have ivan cavaliero adama troare and dedoncker to come into the team.

I am really optimistic about wolves this season. yes it will be mighty challenge but I believe in this team.

12 Aug 2018 13:57:57
Hey Gee hope everything is sound with u? And I'm optimistic to 👍.

12 Aug 2018 15:12:35
hey paul I am doing really well. I am starting to become more happier as time goes on. I have seen that skysports are showing our home game against burnley on the anniversary of my mums passing. hope everything is ok with you?

12 Aug 2018 16:47:25
Yeh I'm good thanks mate just a bit peed off to see the old Goalpost shut.

12 Aug 2018 12:34:08
Ruben Neves played well yesterday as did Raul Jimenez, but I thought the most important player for us was Moutinho. He organised the midfield. Nothing spectacular but very effective.

{Ed025's Note - i thought the ref was your star man jas.. :)

12 Aug 2018 12:58:48

12 Aug 2018 13:07:04
Guess what Mr Macmanaman, I don’t like you either! Plus your in the wrong job mate! A big cleaner is more appropriate for you, I’m 🤔.

{Ed025's Note - hes an idiot coast, he was one of the spice boys at liverpool so that says everything you need to know mate..

12 Aug 2018 22:26:36
In fairness to him he probably has his reasons for not liking us, I mean for a man of his intellect Wolverhampton is an awfully long word! Its not just him though I am SO sick of the scouse mafia in the pundits box! Wouldn't mind if they were any good but they all seem to have had a personality bypass! ; (.

13 Aug 2018 07:23:16
Hanson, Lawrenson, Rednap, MacManaman, Murphy, Carragher, Thompson, Souness, Fowler, Barnes, they all need a lobotomy transplant.

{Ed025's Note - not a big liverpool fan then wolabby?..

13 Aug 2018 08:43:58
I think I like this wilabby lad ed haha. Just browsing through the thoughts of the wolves fans.

{Ed025's Note - they have some really good posters tit..

13 Aug 2018 21:41:33
The ref was on our side yet didn't book Richarlson for diving or book any of the scousers for their fouls on Neves, Jota and Costa. Like when Jota was taken down and the free kick went against him. How dare he get fouled.

This is a case of "Everton know how to play the ref better than Wolves" and that showed.

But we showed too much respect and were rusty. For saying that was a poor performance by our standards it's amazing! On our top form we probably could have really hurt EFC. And if we had been smarter about Richarlson and his diving we could have conceded less too!

13 Aug 2018 23:14:06
We are playing 70% the best teams in the world we are in the premiership . back the pack and the head of that pack Nuno .
Maximilian I ask all wolves fans to sing his name next home March just signed for us make him feel at home .
What a fantastic scouting system we have that covers 18 to 23 from across the glob And a bargain at any age 😊
From non league
What an achievement for that lad

This is rare And fantastic .
Come on ye wolves .

Great atmosphere, good point, and we will only grow in confidence after this. Roll on Leicester 👊.

12 Aug 2018 10:33:26
Helda didn’t show. Pity Cav wasn’t on the bench. Everyone can have a bad day at the office. Come on boys a tough match coming up against Leicester. We can do it! 😉⚽️👍.

13 Aug 2018 21:45:06
I don't think it will be as tough. There will be less nerves. They also don't tend to play act as much as Everton. Which was a shock. I thought EFC were a decent team. But the little fouls on Jota, Neves and Costa really opened my eyes. My mates, United, City and LFC fans, said that it's what a lot of people don't realise. Everton have always done niggling little pulls on shirts and cropped players up.

We need to prepare that a few clubs do this. Especially to fast players. So I feel for Adama, as he will get the worst of it.

I think we can beat Leicester. Just.

11 Aug 2018 21:52:26
Well, first point on the board, a little nervous, a little tentative, but great character to come back from behind twice. Their confidence will grow and they showed glimpses of what they can do. All in all not a bad start, greater things to come. #innunowetrust.

12 Aug 2018 07:07:04
Lots of people moaning about certain players on Twitter, but there’s lots of work to do to get back to where we were last season. Lots of passing and not enough support or penetration in the final third Raul by himself balls going astray over hit, lack of fluency. Lots and lots of work to do. ⚽️😉👍.

11 Aug 2018 21:13:02
Well as far as first games In a promotional season goes it went fairly well, yes we could of pushed a bit harder at the start of the second half but that’s easy for me to say standing watching the match after drinking 6 pints of the finest ale . Neves goal was goal of the weekend and maybe the month, the positives for me was we came from behind twice to level the game something we didn’t need to do many times last season and against a top team in everton . All in all a great point we will only grow in confidence. COYW.
