Wonder why the whole of the ball has to be completely over an actual line for a goal, throw or corner but only a fraction of a player touching a non existent line super imposed on TV screens in a different county is deemed to have committed the “offence” of being offside.

Good point.

2.) 15 Feb 2020 16:21:40
I hadn't thought of that.

3.) 15 Feb 2020 20:00:11
Excellent thinking Oxymoron. Doubt Mike Riley and co. Will be interested in giving us an explanation though. Us fans who keep the whole industry going with our hard earned cash are ******* nobodies as far as they are concerned!

4.) 16 Feb 2020 13:22:16
The answer is the PL have put a total incompetent in charge of our football rules. Let's face it why have they created different rules compared to the rest of the football World? Fact.
Is to hide the total incompetence of our referees? Non on FIFAs list.
Is it to do away with referees altogether so some faceless wonder can dictate to the game?
Or is it a set up to protect the Big 6 from us newly promoted TEAMS? LOOK AT THE STATS WHO HAS LOST OUT AND WHO HAS GAINED. FACT.
He who pays the piper so the saying goes
One very angry paying fan.

I have lots of sympathy with all these comments. It seems typical of the FA to cock up a good idea, to make the game fairer, whereas rugby has succeeded in that aim, and there is clarity in the decision. I like Ron's point. Change the offside rule so the whole of the foot must be offside. no other body part counts. Then let the ref on the pitch decide if he needs assistance and guidance, but he decides from a full screen replay which all can see.

6.) 17 Feb 2020 10:26:10
Good point Oxley but the whole of the ball would be difficult to relate to the whole of the heel. That said, I agree with you. Apparently UEFA advised the PL against getting too forensic in offside decisions. My guess is that next season the PL will fall in line with UEFA, but too late for our disallowed goals this season.

The thought of Michael Oliver sitting in some cupboard with screens in front of him, trying to find fault with a Wolves goal is objectionable to all of us.

7.) 18 Feb 2020 17:21:20
Some very good points. Sadly, after 65 seasons of following football, The lack of brain power and common sense from the game's administrators still has a retarding effect on genuine progress. Will it change for the good in time for next season - don't hold your breath!

Rob Edwards has left the Club to work for the FA who’s next?

Oxley Moor Ron

1.) 02 Oct 2019 22:46:22
Hopefully negative fans who slate players.

2.) 03 Oct 2019 19:28:19
Negative, there’s a word we could apply to the Manager, his tactics and the players this season.

3.) 03 Oct 2019 19:56:24
We've won our last 2 games. Long may Nunos negative tactics continue.

4.) 03 Oct 2019 20:24:02
Make that 3.

5.) 04 Oct 2019 08:07:24
Unbeaten in four.

6.) 04 Oct 2019 09:35:14
Brilliant win hope that shuts a few up, turning the corner.

7.) 04 Oct 2019 14:06:27
Great result, Nuno got it right but surely we can’t be expected to watch that type of football at Molineux, we have to start on the front foot and give forwards a reason to be on the pitch, Raul’s beginning to show signs of frustration, making runs then seeing the ball played back into our own half. Just want to see us play like the home team at home, ten behind the ball is for games like Sunday (and maybe at Anfield) .

8.) 04 Oct 2019 14:24:09
He got his tactics spot on I think, knock it around the back, try to silence the crowd, that didn't really work, subs worked at tonight, changed the game, very good away performance, tight at the back, nicked a goal.

9.) 10 Oct 2019 18:35:31
Nuno negative? I think a few fans are. Seventh in the PL last season, in Europe this season. Just beat the reigning PL Champions. Other clubs want to poach Nuno. If this is negative, keep it up, I love it.



12 Aug 2019 17:22:21
The Premier League will regret sterilising the game in this Country, if you can’t celebrate a goal after a quick glance at the ref and his assistant with the flag, then we might as well all watch on TV. The Premier League should play no part in ruining the greatest spectator sport in the World.

Oxley Moor Ron

1.) 12 Aug 2019 19:17:01
Agree 100%.

VAR is 100% correct but at the same time totally, completely and utterly wrong.

To paraphrase an old Morecambe and Wise story : VAR - the box they buried football in.

{Ed001's Note - it is not 100% correct, there were at least 2 goals I saw scored at the weekend that it should have disallowed for fouls in the build up but they only looked at the offside. It was meant to be used to check for fouls missed in the build up.}

2.) 12 Aug 2019 20:41:34
VAR might be taking enjoyment out of the game. But many people have been complaining about referee decisions for a very long time.

It wasn't VAR that cost us the goal so much as the new rule about handball. Without VAR, a vigilant ref would still have disallowed that goal. Although last season it would have stood.

Let's be honest, we wouldn't have wanted an illegal goal to have stood if it was against us.

3.) 13 Aug 2019 12:48:37
But var missed the blatant shirt pull on Boly though, pic in sightings.

4.) 13 Aug 2019 15:04:44
Yes, it still isn't perfect. Or rather the dude watching it isn't.

5.) 13 Aug 2019 19:42:07
Complaining about referees is part of the game. and they love it, makes them important, VAR”s trying to make ‘em redundant.

6.) 13 Aug 2019 20:09:45
Especially if that dude is Jon Moss! And guess who's got the Man U gig? I don't think I can take all this nonsense this season! And aren't they ( the proper refs) supposed to watch it on a tv monitor before getting it completely wrong?

7.) 14 Aug 2019 23:46:43
Dude watching it was Jon Moss, guess who’s reffing our game against Man Utd.



15 Feb 2019 14:43:52
Hope Nuno’s treating Sunday’s game seriously and doesn’t make unforced changes, no second chances this time, extra time and penalties. Just go and get the job done and try to stay on our bench!

Oxley Moor Ron

1.) 15 Feb 2019 21:23:58
I fear there will be lots of changes again!

2.) 15 Feb 2019 20:58:02
Haha yes that's right about Nuno.

Apart from Ruddy and probably Saiss and Traore I think he will start with the usual 11

I see Guardiola is saying Newport are a strong team and it will be a tough match because they are better in some areas he's already making excuses not like Nuno who just gets on with the job.

3.) 16 Feb 2019 14:09:15
I query if Pep is making excuses at all. First if all I think he is playing mind games in complimenting the opposition. It makes them better disposed to the visitors. Secondly he is motivating his players so that they don't under-rate Newport. Man City will probably win 5-0.

4.) 16 Feb 2019 18:12:55
Maybe but Nuno doesn't do that either not publicly anyway.



02 Feb 2019 18:50:58
Steve Bull stand closed / Steve Bull stand open - not many expected / loads expected - buy tickets for a different stand / could have sat in season ticket seat - anybody know what’s going on up the Molineux?

Oxley Moor Ron

1.) 02 Feb 2019 19:29:57
Didn’t the police originally want the Steve Bull upper closed? After the shrews fans started trouble at their place.
They didn’t want the risk of objects being thrown down.

2.) 02 Feb 2019 19:50:57
Stop moaning
They didn't expect so many fans. let's show em and fill the ground.

3.) 02 Feb 2019 21:18:03
Who’s moaning? Every game’s a big game why would you even think about closing a stand?

4.) 02 Feb 2019 19:49:25
Their ticket site, and organization is rubbish Oxley Moor. Given the initial information and being very busy this week i left it until this morning to try to buy tickets. Sold out apparently, but fair play to the fans. What brilliant support we have now. Could only hear one set of fans singing again today ( a recurring theme this season! )

5.) 03 Feb 2019 13:11:44
I went on line to the ticket site, half an hour after they went on sale to ST holders. Waited in the queue for around 8 minutes, then sorted my ticket within 2-3 minutes. By the time I’d put my card in my wallet, my ticket email had arrived in my ‘in box’, I don’t think that’s too bad a service at all.

Fans seem to be speculating who we should sign, which seems property pointless in the present crisis. I’d be more interested in if people think the game will fully recover, Clubs owners are losing money faster than they were spending it, players contracts will undoubtably be scrutinised, will fans who’ve been in lockdown one day want to be in crowded Stadiums with their friends and family the next, will TV companies still pour money in to the game? It would be nice to think the game could start again with a couple of days notice and be just the same but is that wishful thinking.

Oxley Moor Ron

1.) 27 Mar 2020 16:07:57
Good analysis Ron. Time will tell.

2.) 28 Mar 2020 10:35:57
Pretty sure fans speculating about who we could sign is to divert attention from the global crisis to lift spirits. All posts on here are interesting to me as the boredom of self isolation in the lock down is going to last for weeks.
I don't won't to post my views on if football will recover the implications to our own season so on so on for my own personal reasons.
Stay safe all wolves fans and good health.

3.) 28 Mar 2020 12:19:09
Football is secondary at this moment in time. People need to realise that this pandemic is real and us only going to get worse before getting better. I hate the fact that my wife and kids have to stay home whilst I have to go to work. I am not an NHS worker but work in the emergency services. I've been told to be out there enforcing the lockdown. To be fair it ain't been too bad but please please please if you know anyone who keeps going out when they don't need to, tell them to STAY HOME. I'd rather people stay home for 2 weeks and stay alive than go out and infect others unwittingly.

4.) 28 Mar 2020 13:04:55
Doing the country proud Jas my sincere best wishes for all the emergency workers like yourself Jas and the NHS workers and all your and theirs families.
Stay safe and healthy

5.) 28 Mar 2020 14:18:20
Cheers Phil.

The pandemic is very real and scary. I can say from first hand experience as my other half and I are just coming through the worst after contracting the virus. The NHS staff and emergency workers are true heroes for this country.

8.) 29 Mar 2020 12:45:06
Best wishes to you and your wife Statto.

9.) 29 Mar 2020 14:52:47
Massive respect to you and your co workers Jas 👏🏼👏🏼, you deserve all the credit you’re getting.
Speedy recovery to you both Statto.

Everyone, please heed the advice and STAY SAFE.

10.) 29 Mar 2020 17:34:14
Thanks Jas and Lowwolf. We are on the right path now. Again, my full appreciation to the NHS and emergency staff.



16 Mar 2020 12:29:01
As teams up and down the Country continue to train as normal and young fit healthy people don’t seem to be in any great danger from you know what, wouldn’t it be an idea to play a game every couple of days even if they are behind closed doors, finish the season then shut up shop ‘til further notice?

Oxley Moor Ron

1.) 17 Mar 2020 20:54:32
Thing is I think Nuno has a point here, its an entertainment business! Kind of like saying well we will shut the cinemas but still show the films, I mean you could but is there much point?!



08 Mar 2020 13:20:32
I know it’s big business but it’s still supposed to be entertainment, with our team packed with international players most teams come for a point and have done for almost two seasons now, big question for me is ; How can you counter - attack them?

Oxley Moor Ron

1.) 09 Mar 2020 14:57:03
I would be happy with top ten now. Unfortunately United have now hit form as have Chelsea, so expect them to get Champions league places. Not sure if we will get to next round of Europa league. Hope so.

2.) 10 Mar 2020 18:09:58
You should be happy with that, especially considering you were still shouting relegation on here in your 'final' post! ;)



18 Feb 2020 13:22:34
VAR at it again Monday night spoiling an already not very good match live on Sky, the very people who’ve poured so much money into the Premier League, we might soon find out who’s running the game.

Oxley Moor Ron

1.) 18 Feb 2020 21:18:52
I ended up turning the match off var ruined it completely as a nuetral.



15 Feb 2020 01:07:02
Coincidence? Michael Oliver who couldn’t point to the penalty spot quick enough at Wembley was on VAR duty and took two minutes to find a clear and obvious reason to rule out Boly’s “GOAL”.

Oxley Moor Ron

1.) 15 Feb 2020 12:26:34
If it's not clear then they should stop looking because there is no way a player to that degree of accuracy.

2.) 15 Feb 2020 16:33:05
I think this VAR introduction will eventually lead to fans refusing to attend games unless changed.

3.) 15 Feb 2020 18:27:27
The fans should walk out at the 97th minute mark to show their displeasure.

4.) 16 Feb 2020 13:29:23
Agreed JAS, on Friday night at least 10 of us were angry enough to consider not renewing next season
We are being ripped off.
Shi, on our behalf of WWFC voted for this corrupt VAR system, so I recommend he backs an honest set up run on the sames guidines as the rest of the world and by honest people with the best intentions for our game and the paying fans.
And doing fast while they can.

5.) 16 Feb 2020 16:06:38
If they used the same rules as they did in the World Cup, I'd have no problems. It worked really well in Russia.

6.) 16 Feb 2020 16:28:49
Again I agree so why have the Premier altered things where no other country has?

7.) 17 Feb 2020 10:30:15
Apparently UEFA advised the PL not to try and judge offside in a forensic way, but the PL didn't agree. The PL will probably fall in line with UEFA offside interpretation next season.

Into November played five home league games ; Won 1, scored 7 goals of which 2 were own goals and 2 dubious penalties (Raul’s only league goals at home) only played one decent side (lost 2-5) and only scored first in one match, yet some are not concerned about our attacking options and want to see us sign more defenders and defensive midfielders, I’d just like to see us play like the home side at Molineux occasionally.

So the Clubs priority is there for all to see, couldn’t break down a team who played us at our own game and even substituted our two most influential players, obviously with the trip to Greece taking priority - why we can’t play like the home team with the players we have makes no sense, won only five games of fifteen league games at Molineux = ten times thirty thousand fans have gone home disappointed, that’s a lot of disappointment.

Dendonker regular starter for Belgium not good enough? Weren’t the two experienced central defenders Boly and Coady supposed to help Kilman through the game instead of gifting their centre forward a hatrick?

I'm as disappointed as anyone and was only pointing out that we are only winning one game in three, while draws keep the points tally moving in the right direction and an away draw is always a good point but surely we can't carry on employing the same tactics at home, eight teams have all walked away from Molineux with at least a point this season, it's become a standing joke now as we take our seats we're going to go a goal down, while we watch what the opposition are going to do, think we all know already how Leicester will start in our next match. I thought comparison with Leicester (previous post) was quite fair given that only four players from their amazing season are still regularly in their team, they've changed manager three times, their current manager hasn't yet been in charge for a full season, questionable if any of their players would make our team and players they've signed have less Premier league experience than our lads, except Ryan Bennett who in all probability will be playing in the Champions league next season (strange one that) oh and Jonny Evans. yeah but we are playing in Europe.
