Not overly impressed with his replacement What a difference when vinagre came on.

Agree0 Disagree0

Vinagre played well! ⚽️😉👍.

12 Aug 2018 09:48:42
If we were going to buy anyone in the window, I thought it should have been Maddison. Just my view! ⚽️😉👍.

{Ed025's Note - good player him coast..

What could or should have happened in window is history. Got more than enough to achieve mid-table by January and the chance to go again. Do think latest additions will make a huge impact, especially Traore can’t wait to see him get his chance to impress. I think Dendonker could play free role in back three but only fair that Coady is given the opportunity to show he can step up a level. Travelling at the moment so didn’t see the Everton game, How did Coady do?

Not a disastrous performance today but certainly a wake up call for all those fans thinking it will be a wall in the park. Is it just me or is playing Moutinho and neves together far to defensive. Both play so deep and are so so similar in their style. Neither of them have got legs to make box to box runs. This is desperately what we need alongside neves, not another neves carbon copy in Moutinho. There’s no one linking up midfield to attack, neither of the front three drop deep to link up play. Costa and Jota were awful today, Jota in particular. Also think Nuno got a lot wrong and showed Everton too much respect by keeping three at the back when they went down to ten, invited pressure. That being said would have taken the point before the game :) up the wolves.

Agree0 Disagree0

I think we missed Cavaleiro today. Boly had shakey start and Jota needed to release the ball quicker. All in all a good start to the season as players are not match fit yet. We controlled large parts of the game but missed some cutting edge. We will play worse teams this year, so a good start.

11 Aug 2018 20:15:24
stop bloody moaning wow.

11 Aug 2018 20:33:56
Spot on dapa, thought we was awsome today, Everton a top 8 side and fair play still went for it with 10 men, for a first game I think we was ace and not sure what some of you moaning false fans was watching, minimum 50 points for wolves this season.

{Ed025's Note - get to 40 first rogue and see where you go from there mate..

11 Aug 2018 20:39:04
I'm bloody moaning paid £62 for BT live coverage, had a power cut just after rubens sublime equaliser and never got to see or hear anything after that. Anyway a point to start and some lessons to learn. Hope dendocker or whatever can lock up the defence somehow.

11 Aug 2018 20:49:39
Thought we played ok. I honestly think this team will grow into premiership footbal. Dominated the ball throughout but just lacked that cutting edge. I agree that Neves and Moutinho are very similar players which is great when you want to play possession football but you need that top top player who can turn a game on his own which I thought we lacked today. The last 20 mins we were crying out for Cav or Traore who I know obviously weren’t involved today. I also think Jonny did ok but still believe we need a left footed wingback as when he (Jonny) was presented with a bit of space he cut back in on his right foot which seemed to slow the play! Step forward Vinagre! I genuinely believe this lad will go all the way to the top. Just hoping that our Nuno will see it that way also. Looking forward to seeing our boys back in the BBC at 10.20!

11 Aug 2018 20:54:12
a ticket don't cost bloody 62 pounds 😉.

11 Aug 2018 21:20:49
Dappa and Rogue one need to chill out. No one is moaning just noticing a few things. It doesn't make you a false fan but a fan who is realistic to what he has seen. We controlled possession in large parts but didn't create enough which was mainly down to the 2 wingers not being on their game today. It doesn't mean we think our players are crap just not on fire TODAY. As pointed out Everton are a good side and so I would rather get a draw from them on the opening day than lose to Palace or Bouremouth. I am not sure what game you were both watching if you thought we were awesome.

11 Aug 2018 21:47:39
Camo, it was awsome as I am a realist, this was the first game of the season against a very good side and we held out or own and bounced back twice, that performance filled me with promise for the season, not the finished article but a great platform to build on, you must be one of these fans that was thinking a 4 0 easy win and top 6 finish, small steps.

11 Aug 2018 22:43:58
No not all. I thought 1-1 before the game. Like I said just points noticed during the game. Awesome is playing fluid and creating lots of chances. We played a good first game and that's all it was. We will improve and play better.

11 Aug 2018 23:22:31
Positives, Coming back twice, Neves, Neves’ goal, Neves’ assist, Neves Beard, Neves’ right foot, Neves’ left foot, Good point against a top 8 team, Neves controlled the game, Ryan Bennett (best defender on show today. solid performance), oh and Neves
Negatives, should have won.
We will learn and the future is bright, the future is old gold and black😁.

12 Aug 2018 09:01:03
Dapper I took a month contract with BT 27:99 plus 35 connection so I could watch via Sky in oxfordshire. We actually had 2 power cut Ist half then off for 1hr 49 mins. You think I'd come up with it for fun? Watched highlights now, looked a bit nervy and too much respect for Everton. I think we'll learn from that big time. Leicester will be an interesting gunge.

{Ed025's Note - or gauge even..leicester are a very good side abby and like every game you will have this season it will be a test, for me they were the better team against united and you will have to be at the top of your game to get anything there, to me you seem a bit light up top but i think traore will help although i dont know who else you have who will score all the goals mate..

12 Aug 2018 09:44:24
Yes gauge Ed. For the very reasons you point out. Light up front we maybe but nuno has already said we play the way we play and he won't change that. It's getting the balls over and around that we'll struggle with and the passing was a bit off last night. Incidentally have they widened the pitch at the mol. Looked it from the little I saw last night.

{Ed025's Note - i really rate nuno abby so im sure he will sort it mate..

12 Aug 2018 09:55:04
Not do I! That could likely be a problem. We have to move quicker with the ball, support our one striker up front. They had 10 men. More composure and penetration when on the ball. I’m sure Nuno will get it right. Every game a cup final! ⚽️😉👍.

12 Aug 2018 10:35:10
i love you all wolves fans haha 1 family / _/.

12 Aug 2018 11:48:59
Awesome is how we played the vile off the park at the mol last season, this was a million miles away from that.
That said Everton were fluid and well organised so even though we played 10 men for quite some time a point is not to be sniffed at, this side will invariably improve as the season progresses. COYW in Nuno we trust.

13 Aug 2018 21:48:54
I love how the Everton fan is being condescending. Yes mate, we know. We were league founders. And also have been bigger than you. Nobody else irked by him?

40 points will be easy, mate. We managed to score twice against a team that cheated, fouled and dived. Wolves backed off because they didn't know how to deal with a team that simulates fouls. Jota and Costa didn't know how to deal with players that foul and make it look like they were fouled. They played a game that wasn't just football. We managed to stay with them.

40 points will be easy. I'm sorry, southern. That may annoy you, but it is true. It is funny how the experts after seeing us have said the same. That top half is possible because we got a result playing bad. And we did. Passing has nothing to do with how "good" toffees are. Our passing was not at the same level, them going stray. Going too soon. Too late. Basically, just an off day. So if we can get a result with a bad performance then. That is good? I'd be more worried if I were Everton. You lot had to resort to fouling against a newly promoted team. Everton could only draw whilst Palace obliterated Fulham. Richarlson managed to simulate, showing his £50m was worth it since acting is now a skill in footy. And I'd be worried if I were Everton.

As for this being what we should expect. Nah, fam. We have beaten LFC and held City. We have seen our boys against much better teams than yours. And we saw what they are capable off. This wasn't it.

A draw when playing bad is good. Everton got a draw with their striker playing "well" . Says a lot really. And what a place to be. Everton fans happy with a draw and our fans thinking we could have done better.

11 Aug 2018 19:30:34
We was very naive today gave them a little to much respect. On the good side our fans sounded great and we got a point against Everton. This is not to be scoffed at. all there players have prem experience so well done wolves.

{Ed025's Note - yeah well done rich, i think the sending off changed the game but a draw at your place could end up being a good result for us mate..

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Aug 2018 20:27:39
When your new signings get in the team I’m glad we played you now.

{Ed025's Note - you have a couple to come in as well rich and traore will add an attacking threat that i think you need mate..

11 Aug 2018 19:06:19
Im so shocked what i'm watching in this wolves game I get first game nerves but everton down to 10 men since 40-41mins I just can't understand why we have been so defensive against 10 men.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Aug 2018 19:30:38
Personally quite happy with that. Decent performance and a draw against a good Everton team. Well get better that’s what Nuno does. If you think think we didn’t play good enough it’s first game of the season you should go support city or even Barcelona I here they’ll win every game this season.

{Ed025's Note - i thought wolves done very well considering its the first game back manc..

11 Aug 2018 19:31:54
Not the best performance but at 1 point gained. This is a team playing an experienced Everton team and Nuno and the players will benefit from this by analysing what went well and where we need to improve. Dendoncker, Cav and Traore to come in next week and add more pace.

11 Aug 2018 19:52:06
This is not pub football when we did over commit we nearly got caught even team with 10 men are waiting to break on you this is Prem football.

{Ed025's Note - it is scotty and it wont be easy mate, everton are not at their best and you will get the odd hiding here and there, but you have a good manager and a decent squad so taking points off the lesser sides will be paramount i feel..

11 Aug 2018 20:40:34
Overall a draw was the best result for us some negatives but also some positives pretty sure it was first game nerves and hopefully next game we will be more confident.

12 Aug 2018 13:29:31
0-0 1-1 2-2 3-3 point gained Everton top eight finish so not a bad point first game tv, big atmosphere lots of nerves jangling miss placed passing and a little bit of over trying from the lads to please the fans but overall good signs for the future .
Hard to avaluate first game in not a bad performance but knowhere near awesome I find steady a better word I’m sure Nuno learnt a lot from the game and the back room staff and now that games out the way all will be more confident next game .
What was awesome the support we gave and long may it continue through good and bad times .
What was complete rubbish was macmanaman his commentary on bt sport that I had to endure when I got home from the game was absolutely garbage He also looked like a want to be rock star on coke 😊mick jagger came to mind he could not manage a corner shop what a dick head .

11 Aug 2018 17:09:27
beyond belief . The Mighty Wolves and The Mol all over NBC on national tv in the US for 2 solid hours .

{Ed025's Note - they are looking at the mighty everton tim.. :)

Cav not even made the bench today.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Aug 2018 16:59:29
I read elsewhere that he has a back injury.

11 Aug 2018 17:16:00
Thanks Timmy, just like him as a player and was hoping he wasn't on his way abroad somewhere.

11 Aug 2018 13:42:08
Oh I forgot to say anyone still moaning about a 20 goal striker have you not realised yet we don't play with an out and out striker. I believe only Leicester and the top 4 had one last season which means 12 teams stayed up without one! We have 6 attackers that are all capable of 8-10 goals which is basically 50/ 60 goals. Think that should be enough!

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Aug 2018 13:34:50
Nuno had a dream! Well today lads and lasses the dream becomes reality! Those of you moaning about our transfer business needs to give their head a massive wobble. We have signed some serious international quality players. Those moaning about Afobe and Douglas get over it. They along with others are history. Those moaning about the players we didn't sign forget them. They aren't here either. Just get behind the boys that are here especially those on the pitch and I mean 100% behind them! Win, lose or draw they need our backing, not moaning at them and on their backs. This is our time so embrace it and enjoy the ride. It ain't going to be easy or a walk in the park and realistically I would be happy finishing around 12th, anything higher a bonus. So come on folks let's get the mol rocking today and every match day! COYW.
