Middlesbrough 3 Wolves 0 - Report and pictures

None of the players on show at the Riverside Stadium had been born the last time Wolves had won an away game at Middlesbrough.

Neither had Kenny Jackett. In fact Steve Morgan and Jez Moxey hadn't, either, such is the quite incomprehensibly rotten record Wolves have in this particular part of the North-East.

If Wolves don't break the hoodoo when they return to the Riverside in the Championship next year, you wonder how many of the above will still be at the club when the run, currently at 24 win-less matches in 64 years, finally ends.

For Middlesbrough are a team going places and Wolves, on this evidence, are not.

Many changes were made by both sides as the respective bosses made clear where their priorities for the season lie, but Boro's class told.

There was a small chasm between the two sides in terms of quality going forward, intelligence and patience in possession, as well as creativity and purpose.

Defensive mistakes, once more, littered this Wolves performance, with opposition players left unmarked at crucial moments, and Ethan Ebanks-Landell dropping a howler for the opening goal.

But is Jackett more concerned about the consistent error-strewn displays at the back, or the dearth of imagination and cutting edge up front? Not the nicest of choices to make.

But the answer should be both, as Wolves are short of the required standard at both ends of the pitch at the moment and the longer it drags on the louder the dissatisfaction will grow.

Jackett made nine changes from the side that drew 0-0 with Brighton, many enforced with a host of players injured.

In came Carl Ikeme, handed the captain's armband to become Wolves' fifth skipper of the season, Jack Price and youngsters Sylvain Deslandes and Bright Enobakhare among others, while Dominic Iorfa was moved to centre-half.

Jackett continued with a 4-4-1-1 formation, playing George Saville on the left of midfield.

His intentions to keep things compact in midfield and utilise the pace of Enobakhare and Rajiv Van La Parra were clear, and Wolves certainly managed the former in a gentle opening to the game.

Chances were few and far between, with Boro carrying the more potent threat through winger Adomah, who was handing a stern test to teenager Deslandes.

The Boro man got the better of their early exchanges, with Price having to be alert to intercept a dangerous early cross.

Deslandes and then Matt Doherty importantly intercepted menacing Boro cross-field passes, as the home team looked to edge in front.

Wolves' opportunities were largely restricted to set pieces, with a delicious inswinging free kick from Wallace taken off Deslandes' head.

Doherty made a crucial intervention to cut out former Wolves man George Friend's pass into the box with Diego Fabbrini ready to pounce on 26 minutes.

From the corner, though, Doherty, fresh from signing a new three-year contract a day earlier, was extremely fortunate to avoid embarrassment when he side-footed inches past his own post.

Kike send a cross just over Adomah's head with Ikeme out of his goal, before Wallace fired in Wolves' first shot in anger, a long range effort that sailed high and wide.

The 'Bright' Enobakhare was full of chutzpah, looking to take players on with his infectious and exuberant style.

But his ambition wasn't matched elsewhere, with Wolves struggling to pick out an incisive final ball.

On 37 minutes Boro took a deserved lead when Ebanks-Landell got in a right muddle from a left-wing cross and scuffed the ball into Adomah's path. He duly beat Ikeme from eight yards.

There was obvious frustration on the faces of some of the Wolves players.

They knew that, while their possession and occasional bright interplay was all very well, they needed to show the cutting edge that Boro possessed in the final third.

The hosts began the second-half with intent, as they looked to potentially put the game out of Wolves' reach. Doherty made successive important clearances from a cross and a corner.

Then Ebanks-Landell got his body in the way to block a Kike shot, after the Spaniard had initially got the better of both centre halves and brought Ikeme from his line in the process.

Boro were the more threatening side, with Wolves not able to hurt the home side where it matter. And it was no surprise when the home side doubled their lead just before the hour mark.

A well-worked move involving Emilio Nsue, Adomah and Carlos De Pena ended with Fabbrini lashing past Ikeme from 15 yards on 57 minutes.

Jackett was already planning to send on Afobe and Le Fondre before the goal and the pair duly arrived in a bid to salvage the tie.

They replaced Enobakhare and Van La Parra, who had both been full of running but received little to no service.

The head coach no doubt hoped for an instant impact from the pair, but instead Boro put the tie out of Wolves' reach.

De Pena picked out the unmarked Adomah at the back post and he had time to take a touch before slotting past the onrushing Ikeme for their second in seven minutes.

Wolves responded with their first shot on target of the evening a minute later, McDonald taking Saville's lay-off and side-footing at goalkeeper Tomas Mejias from the edge of the area.

It drew sarcastic cheers from the 312 hardy Wolves supporters who had made the long trip north to a chilly Riverside.

You couldn't blame them for having a dig at their players, who simply hadn't made their 170-mile jaunt worthwhile.

The final 25 minutes were a procession. Boro should have scored a couple more.

Kike dinked into the side netting and Fabbrini crashing against the bar, while Wolves threatened sporadically and belatedly through Afobe and Le Fondre.

It just wasn't good enough. The only plus is that the Capital One Cup is no longer a distraction.

Indeed, this result didn't cost Wolves anything other than a run in a competition they needn't be too bothered about, given their league woes.

But it was still a morale-sapping defeat. And it's clear that Jackett has an awful lot of work to do to get Wolves' season on track.

That post was obviously put together by your Dad. I am afraid I do not understand it as similarly I do not understand your Dads either.

Incidentally I do not post on the Baggies site. I have no interest in them whatsoever. I suggest you and your Dad do the same on this site because you most certainly are of no interest to me or other Wolves fans by posting such childish trivia.

Get it? No thought not.

so you have never been on our side?? you sure about that?? ding

We fielded a pretty strong side and got a terrible result. Feel bad for the fans that drove up there.

Pretty embarrassing, we almost need a "decline to participate" option in these cups if we are not going to go for it.

It's time.for Morgan to start investing in the team or he can f*** off and take Moxey with him.

They are slowly killing this club while teams around us are invested in and grow stronger...with this pair in the hot seats we will go know here fast.

steviewolf

"Kenny Jackett calls for Wolves cup run". Still happy with your young & hungry defence KJ? Absolute shambles of defence, midfield & attack, waste of time entering these competitions or don't we have the choice of entering or not. This is humiliating stuff, how can you think that we can mount a cup run with a team of this standard, an enormous gulf between top 3 & Wolves, we are going nowhere!!

Brightonwolf

Utter rubbish, not good enough!!!!

AucklandKiwiWolf

Morgan & Moxey your policy is not working and the club is going nowhere.While it may be seen as creditable to bring in young players,we also need experienced professionals to help them along.Defeats like this are not going to help their confidence with the danger that Wolves could be 'up the creek without a paddle' and go into a tailspin.The constant hype on youth is a smokescreen for meaning that they are not going to spend any money.The Wolves team NEEDS INVESTMENT!Do us a favour Morgan & Moxey and sell up to someone who wants to take the club forward.

West Park

We're going down !!! Thanks Morgan Moxey & Jacket...Last bloke out of Molineux please turn of the lights..

Even this morning when Sky Sports News did their Capital One Cup preview when they got to our match Tony Cascarino spoke only of Middlesboro, their team and their prospects.

Wolves did not even get a mention.

Wilderness years......here we come !

baggie birder

where have you been these last years?jackett can only play with the marbles hes got

Grumpy grumpy wolf

Tactically inept with favourites only fit for league one which is about Jackets level.

Get him out now before he takes us down.

Lost the dressing room and the fans will be next!

Supporter

Look, its not all bad. We are still 3 points above the drop zone.

Why is Moxey still here

A bloody disgrace. We are going nowhere with these idiots in charge. Get out, all 3 of you.

Hertford

I have shared Charlie's view for some time. We should offer up all our cup matches as bye in order to save the fans the expense and the embarrassment.

Why chase a game at two nil so late on ? It was so undignified to throw our only two strikers on when it was a dead rubber and risk them being injured ahead of our next league match.

I try not to question KJ's tactics but I couldn't swallow that one.

The Flying Winger

Firstly the club should reimburse the valiant 312 who made the long journey.

Another disappointing night which is turning to be a miserable season I think mosr of us know where we will be in 10 to 15 games, which I forecast months ago.

Cup games are an opportunity for the players and managers so the longer you can stay in a competition the better for the club, it also give the supporters some hope if the team is struggling in the league.

Not us though, how many midfielders do we need to play a game of football, defence poor again these players have played enough games by now Jackett plays La Parra as he probably doesn't have much more of an option how many times does he needs telling it's not going to work, we were trying to sell him a few weeks ago, no doubt a footballing decision

Positives selection of McDonald & Price, sub's on 60 min although we were nearly 2 down.

So thrashed by a team who toyed with us at the end,no idea for the front two on how to get a goal, poor defending, no shots on goal, same now every game whoever is chosen.

I suppose we will get, must improve, looking for improvement, need to do better, find the best mix. Etc.

I think Jackett will be gone soon he has done a superb job for us but doesn't appear to know what to do.

A CEO not bothered about falling attendance's, an owner who is following his own dream and strategy.

A club in crisis i am afraid.

West Park

Flying winger. ..We are in dire trouble..doesn't matter who we play and how the team is set we can't for some reason gell..looks like there's some major issue at molineux. .similar that of the end of Mccarthy era. .

¨A CEO not bothered about falling attendance's, an owner who is following his own dream and

strategy.¨

Yep, you summed them up FW. However Sounds to me more like any ongoing crisis is in the

minds of certain fans. Ask the two M´s if there´s a crisis.

Like the euro is so the World economy so the two M´s are to Morgans empire. Working nicely

thanks.

PS and after taking your entrance money they would take away your rights too, if they could!

The Flying Winger

No matter how much you try and trivialise, the reality is the reality which some cannot see through the fog.

The comments are as made by the club.

Same as Jackett last night, we had no one who can go past players, count the shots on goal for the last two games.

He said weeks ago La Parra could be the answer to our forward problems, hello!

There is still time for the club to bring some players in so what do we do give a trial to an older experienced player who hasn't done much for a couple o seasons and has stopped scoring goals.

3 Points Saturday

I have perhaps trivialised the matter FW me old mate but only so you can have a laugh instead of the continuous crying you do. Of course the comments were made by the club. I can read too. You´ve been a supporter at least as long as I have. What´s new? Your questions are rhetorical. Almost as boring as our performances of late. I too hope they bring in some one or two players and not over thirty somethings either. But you know as well as I do Moxey won´t pay for talent unless it´s on the chap.

The Flying Winger

3 P'S, LOL

The Flying Winger

Jackett says we need a bit of magic, I guess he is right

West Park

Paul Daniels available !!!

Gornal knowledge

You reap what you sow

20 million pounds on a stand that wasn't needed that still let in the rain and made the stadium lop sided.

Poor management decisions on the football side. No real investment in the playing staff with an over reliance on what is a good bunch of kids.

Don't know where we go from here.

Don't believe we have either the ambition or the funds to offer a genuine hope of promotion.

Must knuckle down and make sure we stay clear of the clubs at the bottom of the league.

We have fallen a long way in the pecking order

Guess we have to thankful we are solvent but it ain't very exciting is it.

WarrenTimmins

And that was against a boro reserve team, so when the 1st team play

us ............6-0 7-0 ? And KJ still giving the same old bs as always. M&M really have got him singing off the same hymn sheet. They will never take the blame so it appears the clock is ticking .........

Tonka

Although I wasn't at the match, one doesn't need to be there to see problems.

Once again, a basic error from Inexperienced defender EbanksLandel gets opposition on the way.

I find it hard to understand why the management think our so called golden generation of kids from our Under 21's are so good. As far as I am aware, they finished bottom of U21 league last season, and faired little better in the previous 2 seasons!

Let's not kid ourselves, It's not that they are inexperienced, they're just not good enough!

JK and management need to open their eyes and smell the coffee before it's too late.

Jack the Hat

Tonka,

..... Let's not kid ourselves, It's not that they are inexperienced, they're just not good enough! ...

Like I said, it is called delusion. What damage as that trouncing had on those kids confidence and how long will Afobe stand for this before he pushes for a move. The best thing for wolves is relegation so that Mr. Morgan and Mr. Moxey can evaluate and rebuild. I still believe Mr. Jackett is not a top Championship Head Coach, this is the squad he has put together and it will not finish in the top six.

Hard, cold winter ahead.

Jacko, wow, your obsession gets even worse, you so sad, real nasty piece of work, to come on here after our game last night shows how sad and not a true football fan you really are

fairplay to proper Albion fans who haven't taken the easy step to take the pea: shows, unlike JTH, there i some decent and proper fans our the barrier.

Hertford

I guess the opposite of magic is a bad luck......or a curse even ?

We went from automatic promotion contenders to mid table also rans when Stearman and Dicko effectively had their season with Wolves ended in the blink of an eye.

We are now witnessing Plan B then by my calculation.

I know what you're thinking...

denden

Same old wolves same old story rubbish.period .

Putza Shiftin

It sounds like the gulf in class and squad depth is immense, yet the Molineux leadership claim we have a strong squad. Someone has got it wrong.

I've had enough of this. Why can we all see what Moxey and Jackett can't? Time to go KJ. You're out of your depth and haven't got a clue

The Flying Winger

Lincswolf, I thought he sounded very despondent last night.

Silver Wolf

Agreed. He seemed thoroughly p****d off.

WarrenTimmins

16/1 for relegation............get your 50p on us. Forgone conclusion. Pension fund sorted when afobe goes in jan. Bob the builder 63 in November, he wants out. Can we all help him on his way next home game? Get them banners painted up asap

Bruce, Arouca, Trinidad

This was bad enough and worse because we had to endure the usual pre game robber talk, going on a cup run, breaking the hoodoo etc. After a slight ray of hope v Brighton (although the fact that we celebrate home draws against the top teams in the Championship, indicates that we are not promotion contenders) this was back to normal. Not surprising, Moxey last week made it clear that a good profit was the main priority. Before people start calling for Jackett's head, we must realise that the real problem is higher up the boardroom ladder. Unfortunately Saturday's clash with Preston is beginning to look like an early relegation battle. And Preston only lost to Bournemouth tonight on penalties.

Dingle Dave

Only plus news from tonight is we are not signing Shola Ameobi thankfully, fair play to the fans that went, I doth my cap!!!!

Oh forgot we have the memories of our best cup run for many a year, Rd3!!!! get in!!!

How do you doth a cap, sounds interesting?

lyttonwolf

Don't Panic W.W.F.C fans,i overheard Kenny on the phone after the game assuring Gerald and Steve that by Easter he will have the right balance of a team capable of storming the League One in 2016/17 season!!!!!.

Seriously!! Kenny fall on your sword now mate.

In your interview for the job you assured Gerald and Steve you could produce what W.W.F.C fans have been crying out for,for donkey,s years on a shoestring budget,using bits of tat players ,other teams rejects etc,etc,it worked in division one.But you you are now up with the big boys and totally out of your League !!!(get it !!)

We had the chance of a couple of decent managers,but when they told Gerald it would cost money!!!he had a funny turn and could see his holiday home venture going (breasts up)….

He soon deleted them from potential applicants.

And that's why we are in the Dire Straits today,

Morgan and Moxey don't care about us W.W.F.C fans it's about all about Big Bonus,s for Gerald and Big Building Contracts for Steve.

Sorry but if you don't believe it,you are just going to get the same old,!!! season after season,while Gerald and Steve are at the helm.

We need a dramatic change at W.W.F.C

Now!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stephen

Nine changes from the side who played Brighton! We need consistency to build confidence so stop tinkering.

AucklandKiwiWolf

To be fair.I don't blame Kenny Jacket.Like his predecessors his hands have been tied behind his back by the Management.Over the years Wolves have had some decent managers who have been let down by poor management and I am including Sir Jack.ie.2003/4 season.This has been going on too long now and it is time to stop.Wolves have great potential as a club with a good fan base,but they are being made the laughing stock by such poor management.

Admiration for the 300 plus making the long trip to the Riverside on a Tuesday evening knowing ahead that we were on a loser - first of many I fear.

mebabiz

glutens for punishment in a competition where we NEVER compete. But fair play for their sacrifice

Old Gold Heart

I have met morgan many times and never slagged him off on here but i too now believe he should sell. last season we beat boro 2-0 and looked the better side (at the mol). last night we were clearly thrashed and not by their 1st team. Jackett's messing about with goalkeepers, selling our player of the season (whatever his faults he still was and was also our captain), falling out with dicko, trying to sell VLP and then not etc etc

the club is in freefall and although KJ has really not helped and at times looked clueless this season he has achieved in the last 2 seasons. the problem is really morgan. he should let moxey leave - no "CEO" should stay 17 years however good he/she is. he should also sell and let someone who really wants to play top flight football take the mantle on.

we have been overtaken by watford, palace, bournemouth, norwich, southampton, swansea, derby, middlesborough, brighton etc etc and it is only going to get worse. sheff united can tell us all about that

Stafford_DeWolf

More awful, naive defending for the goals from a very inexperienced back four, again raising questions about the wisdom of the Stearman sale and the lack of replacement.

Without our match winning French connection nothing going forward.

With Moxey's declared club policy not to enter bidding auctions for better players a very long, hard season beckons.

The Flying Winger

S D W, Sell Stearman and give Doherty as 3 year contract, he for me has gone backwards since the Reading game last year and has been in and out of the side.

He leaves the LW wide open for some reason, Jackett tried the midfield excersise with him similar to Foley which didn't come off.

The contract must have been a footballing decision but they contradict each other.

Stafford_DeWolf

The club's decision-making seems to be based on cheap finance rather than any football sense. The clubs prepared to take risks are leaving us behind.

So disappointing after last season's promise.

BondiWolf

We are sending kids on a mans mission, it may look good in the bottom line of the budget, but

it won't win us promotion or more supporters. The lack of investment and the cracks are showing, any good young player will be sold in January or at the end of the season, it seems our ambition is to buy young players, improve them, then sell them.

Albrightondek

I try to look for some positives in any matches, - whether we win, lose or draw - but in Tim Spiers rather gloomy report there doesn't appear to be much that supporters can take as a positive step forward.

To me this game was all about giving an opportunity to players on the fringes of the first team to show Jackett they can contribute as an alternative to the regulars. It was also a chance for Price and McDonald to renew their partnership, and hopefully bring some guile back to the midfield.

With so many changes, I suppose it was bound to disrupt continuity in the team - so I'm not too concerned about the result as such. What is of concern is if none of the individuals who came into the side, failed to make an impression.

The Flying Winger

The problem is we don't have the fringe players to make a difference either in a cup game or coming off the bench.

We have a manager who is fast losing the plot as he doesn't have the players, can't find a mix as he puts it, tactics have been floored since the start of the season.

Goalkeeper as Captain!!!

We were just not beaten but thrashed last night.

We are no doubt hoping Batth will come in and make a difference which with his injury just settling down is another huge gamble being made, alongside another gamble selling Stearman before he was fully fit.

We need a leader on the pitch what do vwe do last night make Ikeme captain, what's that all about.

Thomas

Jackett is just doing his best, which happens to be exactly what he did at Millwall. Took them up from league 1, then a good season in the championship, then downhill. He doesn't know what to do now, but sadly neither do the men in charge of the club. I find it puzzling that he drops Ikeme from the league games, replaces him with a young loanee, then brings him back in for a cup game and gives him the captains arm band. Mixed messages or what? If I were a player I'd be thinking that this guy is not on top of his job at all.

old golds worth more

I have not been a critic of the 2 M's recently ( or at least not to the degree that some are), and still think much of the blame for the teams failings (selection, tactics, substitutions, training methods etc etc), should well and truly be laid at Jacketts door! Any manager with the slightest bit of integrity, would resign if they were treated by the 2M's in the way some commentators in here are suggesting. No, I think that Jackett is his own architect in his downfall (should it come that of course). After a successful start to his career here, he has started to believe his own hype, by that I mean confidence in youth etc etc etc, in KJ I for one, certainly do not trust I'm afraid!

Chester Wolf

KJ is quoted as saying 'the goals certainly turned it in their favour.'

You can see how that might happen.

Dingle Dave

Jack

How?

doff your hat/cap in the Cambridge dictionary means -

› to show ​respect to someone or something:

RESPECT JACK!!!! Something you have never possessed you bitter twisted old tw**!! now do us all a favour and take your vile self to play on the M6

BeeCee

Dave.

Have you noticed the times on Hat man's posts?

He obviously gets a good signal standing on the bench at the top of Sedgeley Beacon.

I think the security at the psychiatric home needs upgrading don't you?

Happy Baggie

Hello Dave. Seeing how you regularly post on the Albion pages I'm sure you won't mind me addressing you on here for a change.

I think Jack's original post was about your use of the word "doth" which you later changed to "doff" when explaining yourself.

Now I may think it was a petty point scoring post from jth but I just found it hilarious that you have a go back at Jack about respect by calling him a "bitter twisted old tw**" - hardly the epitome of respect is it ?

I also think telling him to play on the M6 was a little disrespectful and more than a little childish.

I may not like or agree with what Jack says - but if you come over to our pages (as you often do) and have a go, its a bit much to get stroppy when he follows you back.

BeeCee

Happy Baggie.

With all due respect Happy. No one on these pages likes or agrees with Hat man and he most certainly doesn't follow anyone back. He is first on this site every time a new article appears. Just have a quick look at the times his posts appear. That tells it all. IMHO

Also if anyone is continually disrespectful, childish, vile and abusive to Wolves, the supporters and the town of Wolverhampton, it is Jack the Hat.

I have been on the end of his personal vile abuse many many times, as have many others including Dave. What are we supposed to do sit back and take it or respond in a similar fashion?

DancesWithWolves

Given that Kenny has been told that the club must operate within it's financial means without external investment, I wonder if the long-standing service of our CEO Jez Moxey should also be included within this restraint? Has he really been here for 17 years? I'm sure Morgan could find a younger, and more importantly, cheaper alternative. What would be the going rate for a young and hungry CEO in this division?

I'm sure the stated financial policy of the club is sound, for a mid-table Championship club.

Promotion looks a distant dream now but if it did happen I doubt that Morgan has the guts for the ever-higher financial stakes in the PL. Time to quietly find a buyer, Steve?

tigger

We still seem to have no settled side and KJ swapping and changing is not helping

think hes lost the plot this season

California Wanderer

This whole campaign has been a farce. We sell our player of the season and established captain after two games and have since had five different captains in nearly as many games. Friends of mine were at the game and were feeling sorry for us. They said that Boro didn't even break a sweat and we looked like a deer in the headlights and totally outclassed. From one of the promotion favorites to one of the relegation favorites in a matter of a month tells me that the hierarchy are seriously out of their depth. We have known this about Moxey for the last decade and obviously he has some serious hold over how everything is run, but it is clear that until he is removed we will continue to languish in the Championship at best for the coming years. Such a sad state of affairs that leave the true supporter frustrated and angry. Until this incompetence is removed, do not expect to see us going forward.

Thehoffsleftsock

Going for a cup run eh kenny like u said in the paper yesterday, will that be the FA cup?, I'm not gonna shout sack kenny, I'd rather shout get rid of bob the builder and the fat controller, KJ is just a cheap puppet on a string who is out of his depth in the top of the championship. Long season ahead, I know I'll put the most prolific striker in england last year in the middle of the park to score less, doh!

,

Foxlandswolf

After last nights awful display will those of you who keep chanting the mantra of "hundreds of points to play for" now cease and accept the fact that we are now in a relegation dogfight.I have the utmost respect for those fans who made the journey and like them I am 100% behind the team. The fact remains that KJ knows what the weaknesses are and yet does nothing to eliminate them,all 3 goals were the result of "pub"defending. A chance for the fringe players to shine,looks like they didnt give a stuff to me. These youngsters have no quality and for KJ to suggest otherwise is delusional I cant see where we can go from here other than down but I will still be there ( like all of you) next season wherever we are. I hope the same can not be said of the 2 M's and KJ.

Just show us some fight lads thats all we ask !

So what I made a spelling mistake, big deal!!! I couldn't care less what you think about my lack of respect for Jack, He is a vile individual and I would gladly give him a lift to the M6.

No offense to you Happy Baggie though.

Like I say - I may not agree with Jack but as you yourself are a regular poster on our pages commenting on Albion stuff its a bit rich to moan when someone does the same back to you.

Your posts are not offensive but we do get regular wolves fans coming over and posting like 3 year olds...... its dull but what can you do?

I will quote the old adage. Sarcasm is the lowest form of humour but the highest form of ignorance.

Fair point Kev, you are right, our team is a total shambles.

Well done the other day by the way beating the Villa. Who would av thought it , little West Brom beating Aston Villa. Nice!

I have no issue with any baggies fans apart from Jack & Jnr, I welcome the banter as it's good fun but when it borders on obsession and posting vile posts that them 2 clowns post then that's where I draw the line.

Jack is just an old bitter twisted Wolves obsessed jar head & Jnr is just a Jack wannabe (just why that is baffles me). I just hope they are both the runts of the families because if they are not then their family trees must look like a cactus.

Feel free to rinse us on our current plight Happy Baggie cus when the boots on the other foot I will be on you lot in a heartbeat ;)

Have a good day my Steptoe friend.

Happy Baggie

Dave - I have no interest in rinsing you (whatever that may be) and yes one day you may be above us (always "next year" according to 90% of wolves fans on here).

I enjoy being above the wolves more than mere words can express but I find little need to rub it in on here - unlike you I can't even be bothered to call you names.

We need reinforcements and we need them quick - CB, LM & Striker at the very least. Problem now is, everyone will be aware of our current plight and the price for a decent loan signing will have gone up leaving us to pick up has beens similar to Danny Graham and Sagbo. This could have been avoided with the right investment pre season and retaining the services of Stearman!!!

Well done to Wolves '300 Spartans' who went. I'd ask for a refund if it were me. 8 changes is a joke. We NEVER compete in these competitions so perhaps tickets shouldn't be sold, it's taking money by deception!!!!

Just the exit of the FA cup at round 3 and thats the season over

I think people should take a step back here and realise what a mess the wolves are in right now. Priority should be another forty points ensure we dont get relegated again. At the moment and I have seen all of the league home games I just cannot see where these points are going to come from? How many shots on goal in last three games? Answers on a postcard please.

After reading the comments above what comes across is the dedication and commitment that Wolves supporters have, shame that the owner and board members do not share the same commitment. As for Kenny Jackett I cannot understand if his problems are lack of substantial funds to rebuild or his ability to manage at this level, either way if the present decline continues he will leave the club by mutual or sacked. Jackett, Morgan and Moxley must soon decide how they see this Once Great Club go forward sooner than later. It's still early in the season to put things right and hopefully this will be forthcoming, but the supporters need to be reassured this is going to happen. When the club is not doing well it effects the City and most of all the supporters who throughout all weathers home or away they continue to follow their team, so now WOLVES time for you to show these people what you intend to do to rectify this situation. It's put up shut up or move on time do not let these supporters down.
