Chelsea putting a strong team against us Willian Hazard Pedro Costa I would have started with Saiss and Ronan rather than Price who I rate and Saville but he is against his old club so maybe something in that. Would like to see Williamson and Cav out there but perhaps not fit.

Quote from today's Mirror (betting page) "Molineux is a lovely place, but it isn't a tight, super noisy, intimidating place for visiting clubs". so I'm not the only one who thinks so, been like it far too long!
18 Feb 2017 08:41:27
Strongest team possible today Lambo! As long as I see 100% commitment and passion from our team I will not moan! As long as Lambo sets them up properly and puts round pegs in round holes which is what he gets paid for, I believe we can get a result today! Mighty Wolves 2 Chelsea 1. 👍.
16 Feb 2017 08:50:11
I can't believe Lambert can sit there and say Saiss can't get in the team because of how well the other lads have performed. Apart from 2 good cup wins what have the players rewarded with new contracts shown us?
16 Feb 2017 11:30:25
Correct JDW, they've achieved nothin! imo if we lose to Chelsea and Blues Lambert will be sacked! Remember in 2019 the Chinese have the rights to the Premier league for 3 years so Fosun will want us in there! Failure won't be an option to Fosun.
16 Feb 2017 13:29:14
Yeh he says that about Saiss when we've lost 4 out the last 5 but he plays Marshall who's half fit at best? Lamberts borin me now with his total Bo--ocks! Lambert start winnin games and keep your gob shut! Actions speak louder than words!
16 Feb 2017 14:10:06
Also why play Marshall at right back when he apparently wanted to leave Blackburn because they played him at right back. Would love to see Saiss back and give Iorfa another run at right back. Also change to a 442 formation instead of one up top and the defence hoofing it forward to the smallest player on the pitch.
16 Feb 2017 18:03:26
Well said PT and PW. I'd like to see Hause at the back with Williamson again too with Iorfa and Doc. Put Ronan and Saiss in the middle, Costa/ weimann on wings Bod/ Dicko/ Bright up front. This one man up front is ok when you've got midfielders who can slice defences with a decent through ball and play it on the deck to feet. It most certainly isn't going to work launching high balls up to Dicko on his own? Hope we do better against blues than last years game on the telly at Molineux.
16 Feb 2017 20:13:46
In total agreement, let's hope Lambert takes notice.
16 Feb 2017 21:03:05
Have to say that Lambert as confused me on is comments after Wolves games, he seams to talk a right load of crap.
Did not expect to hear the load of crap he as been saying about Wolves performances, it's as though he thinks we have not had the rub of the green, when in reality we were awful at Burton and against Wigan, did we have a shot at goal and these are bottom sides, also the Newcastle match no shots on goal, football teams have to score goals to win matches, we don't even shoot at GOAL, BEWARE CHELSEA WE ARE DUE FOR SOME SHOTS AT GOAL, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
17 Feb 2017 12:35:55
The way to rectify the lack of shots on goal would be to play Ronan in the number 10 position. This along with playing Price and Saiss in midfield, Costa and Weighman on the wings, and Dicko or Jon Dadi up front. Regretably we don't have anyone else to play up front but I feel Ronan at number 10 would put him in a good position to have a few shots. The defence for Chelsea game would be Ikeme Coady, Williamson, Hause and Doherty.
The above team for Chelsea would be the best available in my view. On the bench I would have anyone except for Saville and Evans, but knowing Lambert both of these players (if you can call them that) will probably be in the starting eleven.
17 Feb 2017 22:26:59
our team cannot play a normal 442 because the defence is far to weak/ inexperienced thus we always play with 2 in front of them which is half the reason we are not scoring goals now we need to hopefully carry on playing on the break and have a good cup run make sure we don't get relegated get rid of thelwell get rid of tony daley who (in my opinion overtrains the players and causes more injuries than he prevents ) then buy a spine . centre half. cmd. centre forward 3 players build around them!
17 Feb 2017 22:23:26
Some good lineups there yes I would try Saiss, Williamson, Hause, Ronan as the spine but for Chelsea maybe this is one for Cav in a 451 Bod up front.
17 Feb 2017 23:52:48
How can you say our defence is inexperienced? Batth, stearman, ikeme and doc have been there years and we play pretty much 10 behind the ball anyway as we are always defending. You say hit them on the break all the time so if we are playing high tempo on the break then players need to be super fit so there goes your TD out! So do we have to play on the break? Why can't we dominate teams like they do to us with possession? Our cup run will be over tomorrow then it's back to the league. How many excuse do people want? We aren't performing and our squad isn't good enough. End of rant.
18 Feb 2017 11:44:31
You are right pompey wolf, I have tried to pick my best 11,and I have to admit I am struggling, we are putting round pegs in square holes because we have not got players good enough in there original positions we are still playing with k. jacketts players except for a couple, which tells me why did we get rid of him if we were still going to play these players.
Just hope we don't go down and sort it out for next season, because even Jackett finished higher than the last 2 managers in league and he had no money to spend.
15 Feb 2017 21:27:09
Apparently lambert took the forwards to a local brothel to see if they could score. mason got injured undressing, bright shot over from 2 yards, Dicko couldn't find the box and poor john dadi came away with the Icelandic clap.
15 Feb 2017 19:16:00
poor old costa he must be thinking why oh why did I sign a contract facts are the football was just as good under zenga and the poor players we have are being wheeled out week in week out lambert needs to act now to stop this decline!
15 Feb 2017 18:55:03
As I watched the Wigan game last night the only thing I could think was that if only we had Texeira on the bench to turn the game in our favour. He has the ability to ghost past players and technically superior to anyone in our midfield. Ronan played well and is still very talented. However I think getting rid of Texeira is big mistake.
15 Feb 2017 18:33:23
wolves to lose 5 - 1 against Chelsea
I feel really unhappy about wolves
glad I don't read all message else I would feel suicidal.
15 Feb 2017 21:40:34
Only have to read yours to feel that way gee!

Major problem at Molineux is. Molineux. It's not fit for purpose! First phase redevelopment John Ireland stand ( now Steve Bull ) was built in the wrong place, behind the old Molineux Street stand creating a huge area big enough for two football pitches. Billy Wright and Steve Bull stands are too far away from the pitch, even when full fans can't be involved with the game so the team gain no support from these areas of the ground. It's far to comfortable and easy for away teams, their wide players and players taking throw-ins never see a 'home' supporter. Doesn't make any difference who the manager is or who the players are we don't get any "home advantage" been like it for forty years (next year) it's not coincidence that all best performances are away from home. Top priority should be to make Molineux fit for purpose, a stadium people want to come to and be close to the action, then put a team in it and only then will the fans "together" with the team have a chance of making it the fortress owners and managers talk about. give us a chance! Did any of Wolves owners, board members etc go to Liverpool? So at least they know what a proper football stadium loos like.
15 Feb 2017 19:05:09
Don't blame the players or the managers? Blame the lay out of the stadium? What a total load of horlicks! The stadium is lackin a quality team and manager! Fact.
15 Feb 2017 22:36:45
I'm afraid you got that one wrong! You may not like the ground as is! However, the priority has to be the team and what's happening or in our case not happening on the pitch. It's not just the ground. Get the team somewhere near the mark and the rest will follow. Molineux needs to be full, it isn't! It will only get that way when the team improve. Once again nothing to do with the ground. I agree it can be improved, it's an excuse to try and make out it's not fit for purpose!
We need to address the spine of the team and get some quality up front. Our strikers are putting a shift in but not doing what they are Supposed to do, strike, score goals. As for players given longer contracts, it just adds value to their sale worth when moved on doesn't it? ⚽️👍😉.
15 Feb 2017 22:47:23
Quite right PT. 👍👍😉.
16 Feb 2017 16:19:07
Why do most players who leave Wolves play better elsewhere? How are Burnley with their championship players winning week in week out? Why are West Ham finding it difficult in their new stadium miles away from the fans? Why do all stadiums in the country (new and old) build stands as close to the pitch as possible, if it doesn't really matter? Why are seats at each and of Steve Bull and Billy Wright stands always last to sell? I may be in a minority but I think it does matter and as we're not going up or hopefully down in the foreseeable future, Fosun have the money and "Bob the builder"already has the plans and probably knows somebody who'll do the job. If there's any ambition ther'll never be a better time.
15 Feb 2017 11:46:45
Morgan did invest in players. but just gave the money to the wrong manager. they got scared after Johnson and o'hara and never spent again. the only players I can recall being any good were at the time Doyle fletcher and geudora.
