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.

Oxley Moor Ron

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.


5.) 16 Feb 2020 14:43:59
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!

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.

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.


 

 

06 Feb 2020 14:50:53
I know people will say we've come a long way in a short time but i'm surprised many think we're improving, a few facts ; won only 8 from 25 played, won only 4 from 12 at home (last season won 10) Villa, Bournemouth& Palace have won 7,conceded 1st goal 9 times at home 5 times within 15 minutes and 8 times away, not beat anyone in the top half of the table except Man City (twice) their goalkeeper was sent off at the Mol after 12 mins, . team who we supposed to rival for top 4 or at least 6 (Leicester) have won 15 games, we don't look likely to match last season's points tally, only Raul scores regularly (midfielders are allowed to score) also out of both domestic cups before the end of January without showing much intent and are equal bottom of the current form table level with Palace, by the end of the season I think we'll be glad there's at least 3 teams worse than us, some fans are talking about going to the next level, we need to improve enormously to get back to last season's level.

Oxley Moor Ron

1.) 06 Feb 2020 16:45:35
Couldn't resist revisiting for a one off after reading Oxley Ron comments. You need to be careful Ron because you will be criticised for making an absolutely nailed on piece of observation. Some fans just cannot see it though. You make some stark and correct points. Sad to say.


2.) 06 Feb 2020 18:54:48
Trying for more negative self justification SQ. Each season is different and perfomance is based on how the team does vs the opposition. Don't forget the Europa League and it's demands.


3.) 06 Feb 2020 19:41:15
A few more facts 'last season' was 38 games we are currently on 25 so there is in fact time to equal or even surpass the majority of those stats quoted!
Is it REALLY surprising or news even that we are behind a Lec team that have been playing in the Prem for three times as long and have won a league? I would also point out that Lec teams Telus heavily on Varfy ya know in the same way we do. with our. main striker! And yeah I would say this season's an improvement cause we are doing it all whilst competing in Europe not easy as any other fan that's been there would tell you! It's fine to have a different opinion on the season (of course it is) but at least Oxleys making a reasoned argument! I disagree with the point but at least you can see he's taking a reasoned approach rather than just posting negatively to any given situation! Still saying Podence is never happening are we SQ?! I wonder which will happen first him signing or us getting relegated?! 🤣.


4.) 06 Feb 2020 19:47:04
Also Oxley you must show me when and who from the club said 'we were supposed to rival top four' no one has EVER said that! In fact Nuno refuses to discuss as he sees it so entirely futile for a club in the second season in the league! As per he ain't wrong!


5.) 06 Feb 2020 19:57:54
Last time but I would 'also' take MASSIVE issue with you taking away from the City result by saying about the sending off! We won more comfortably at their place against 11 men so I am uncertain of the relevance! Cause again the phrasing of that point is very selective do you remember WHY the keeper was sent off? I do it was because Jota was about to skip round him just 12 mins into the match! So your right the sending off probs does explain the result cause without it we may have won by a few clear goals! C'mon Oxley, let the team have some credit eh ;)


6.) 07 Feb 2020 02:05:59
Ok this REALLY is the last one but C'mon "I think we'll be glad there's at least 3 teams worse than us" did we drop down to 17th over night?! I think you'll find there are ALREADY at least 12 teams worse than us!


7.) 07 Feb 2020 10:22:49
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.


8.) 07 Feb 2020 10:28:04
Oxley Moor. You're definitely the 'glass is half empty type' mate. We beat the champions home and away. We gave the future champions their toughest tests of the season. Klopp said so. We're not afraid of anyone. We've upgraded the squad by quality rather than quantity. We're in the knockout stages of Europe. We're out of the two cup competitions that are meaningless to us this season as we are concentrating on the PL and the Europa League. Unlike last season, we are in with a realistic chance of top six if not top four, plus Europe.

We have definitely improved on last season mate!


9.) 07 Feb 2020 11:20:47
SQ, You couldn't resist adding yet another negative dig in one way or another.


10.) 08 Feb 2020 13:36:39
Thing is Oxley you are seeing our performance like we are playing in a standardised league and football just doesn't work like that! Half the reason things are harder this season is BECAUSE how good we were last season. Teams aren't turning up to Mol anymore intent on playing there own game against little old Wolves! Look at Chelsea they played a flat back 5 when they came (they have hardly used the same system since) cause they knew if they turned up with an open game plan they would get beat! It shows how far we've come because teams are coming to us with a specific game plan on how to play US (rather than the other way round as you might expect) . This is why peeps don't seem to appreciate just how hard it is to move into the top four, it takes seasons of quality growth! As for Lec I think they are having a similar season to us last year as in they are catching teams out, let's see if they finish in the top four two seasons in a row I suspect they will not! COYW 👍.


 

 

16 Jan 2020 16:09:06
Start of the season when buying our season tickets we were looking to be challenging at the top end of the table, having a shot at both domestic cups, bit of a run in Europe, strengthening with quality in January and replacing the Steve Bull Stand. but, Wolves ay we.

Oxley Moor Ron

1.) 16 Jan 2020 16:44:56
Exactly. Lied to again as normal. Fosun not interested any longer.


2.) 16 Jan 2020 17:22:04
Hahaha! So which haven't they done then?! Get a grip boys, we've just been knocked out on a replay to a single goal away at OT! Its hardly crashing out to Morecombe AGAIN like in years gone by is it?! Last time I checked Jans not over yet and neither is the season for that matter! As for the stand well they were only ever going to start that at the end of the season (at best) so again not sure where the misinformation is exactly? Please try to speak to other clubs fans from teams that were recently bought out (Villa, Brom, Swansea, Fulham, hell even Everton! ) and let me know if you can find a single one that wouldn't swap owners. I seriously doubt you will! Have a little faith! COYW ;)


3.) 16 Jan 2020 17:36:22
Hi naysayers; you will have the right to vent your anger, frustrations, come the end of the transfer window. Until then we do not know what is going on behind the scenes. So keep your powder dry til then if nothing happens.


4.) 16 Jan 2020 17:44:38
well said bullys boy been missing our best centre half most the season and still in seventh some folk just ain't been around long enough too understand onward and upwardsin nuno I trust COYW!


5.) 16 Jan 2020 18:58:35
Have to agree with you bully boy's can't understand some people look how far we've come yes we are out of the FA CUP to a top team man Utd no there not as prolific as they used to be but they are a top six team we had our chances and we could have won on another day but that's the first loss to them in four meeting's yes we are having a bad run at the moment so does every team.
I'm sure Foson are 100% behind wolves and want them to be successful which we will be but it doesn't happen over night.
I'd rather be in this position than when we were 3 season's ago there's plenty of clubs who would give there right arm to be where we are.
We have one of the best manager's backroom stafand physio's in the league.
Sighnings will come in this window and I'm sure it will start next week.
We have a great footballing team who play attractive football it's just getting the right player's in.
We are still in 7th position still in the Europa cup knockout stages and Nuno is still building a team I'm happy how far we've come were competing in the best league in the world.
We're not in a crisis and Foson will put this great club back where we belong.
Have faith!
Come on you wolves🐺🧡🖤.


6.) 16 Jan 2020 19:05:32
Might be short in defence but all three players rumoured today are strikers aren't they. compana. vasquez. vinicious.
Need a defender and mudfielder too.


7.) 16 Jan 2020 22:29:59
CWOBBLE is back. 10 days on, now 5 without a win, now vinagre our injured, Cutrone gone . Bodies and minds jaded, no energy, no bench, no signings . Is that despondency? No it’s reality . No way can a premiership side compete with a fit, even energetic squad of 15 . Cav went, Costa went . Both were options to come off the bench . What have we now? A half fit Morgan Gibbs white
Our squad is weaker than end of last season and I fail to comprehend how and who has allowed this to happen.


8.) 17 Jan 2020 07:41:19
While I agree with others that we have the best team we've had in years and with a couple of quality additions we could get back on track. BUT. CWOBBLE is right. At this moment in time our squad is weaker than it was last season. Our two big signings from the summer have already gone and we got lucky with Neto who was signed for U23s. It was a shockingly poor window for us and a big missed opportunity. We can't afford for that to happen again and Nuno is well aware of that.


 

 

12 Jan 2020 17:31:36
Would have thought someone would have noticed Raul is ineffective without Diogo and we have no one to play in his position when he’s missing.

Oxley Moor Ron

1.) 12 Jan 2020 21:40:16
Agree Oxley RAÙL and Jota together much more understanding between them and look much more threatening JOTA is such an important player for us with his bursting runs and with Raùl they are a force need him back ASAP
🐺🧡🖤.


2.) 12 Jan 2020 22:26:57
Your right but it isn't Rauls fault its more that without Jota our style is far less effective. We are VERY lucky to have Jota and Traore because both are as dangerous attacking on the inside as they are the outside. The result of which being defences will usually double up on them when they are running with the ball which in turns creates the pockets of space the Raul has learnt to attack SO well!
I like Neto and the kid has talent but he is FAR more one footed (left) than the other two. As such when played on the left as he was yesterday he seems to spend the majority of the game attacking down the line, which is fine (technically) cause he's good at it. only problem is that in doing so it only takes one full back to cover him! Leaving Raul with two CB's to contend with when finding space. We need another player as strong on both flanks as Diogo and Adama which considering how lucky we were to get them in for the money we paid that is no easy task! COYW ;)

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.

Maybe they’re working out a fairer pricing structure given that most of our games are live on TV wheee the coverage is obviously better than attending matches and most fans subscribe to as well, but more likely with 10,000 plus on the waiting list a price hike is in the pipeline, don’t expect they’ll be any “earlybird “.

Jiminez is lost without Jota, hasn’t managed to form any sort of partnership with any other player and as Paul Ince says ; Traore is so fast he runs away from defenders and his own team mates, who can’t get forward quick enough to be on the end of his crosses. back to the tactics board.

Lucky to escape with a point lastnite and after throwing away a 3 - 1 lead making substitutions against Braga Nuno kept his strongest team on the pitch. Nice to see a Club with players who are only there for the money and who’s fans are deserting them by the thousands have reportedly dropped their interest in Nuno because “he wouldn’t be the right fit” - like they know!
