Wolves vs. Saints - Build Up

Recommended Posts

Is this a game we really need something from?

 

Even a draw would be progress & a good result! Wolves are in pretty good form with their shock result against city, their pace will scare us.

 

With Wolves, Leicester & Man City next, it's very worrying where the next points are going to come from.

I think we just need to try to get a settled side really. Too much fannying around.

We can't expect to be getting points against sides like Wolves. Concentrate on the next winnable one and just avoid picking up any injuries.
And when is the next winnable one? Can we afford to take zero points from the next 9 available?

Danso and Vestegaard, you're having a laugh (I hope). Wolves would run rings (slowly) round them.

Wolves is one of those places we normally do OK at so I am going for a draw, I think our styles are mutually compatible

I’m laughing at you if you think Danso is slow.

 

Time for new spectacles.

they are on a high after beating citeh last time out. and have better players than us in every part of the pitch. let's hope we can avoid a thrashing there.i doubt jota jimenez and traore are having sleepless nights at the thought of facing our defence. one thing i fear is ralph dragging vest back into the side, in which case a thrashing will be a matter of fact.

 

if and that's a BIG if, we play well and ralph doesn't have any brilliant ideas of playing vest or deploying jwp at FB, then there is a chance to get a point there i suppose.

Not that bothered when we go down.

We are a complete non-entity these days in this league. Will probably be the same in the Champ under the brilliant stewardship of Gao

Wolves were looking turd a month ago while we were looking upwards, how times change.

 

They are on a great bit of form but we seem to do better away from home generally, could see a draw (at best).

Agree. But Danso should play on the right, maybe instead of Bednarek. We can see Danso today in the U21 England vs. Austria

Back to a 5 at the back for me...we're not good enough defensively to play 4222 IMO.

If anyone is after tickets Saints have finally put block 9 on sale , seemed pointless us taking a reduced allocation then leaving empty seats when we'd sold out initial allocation .

think this is probably our best side gunn hasnt been great and mccarthy decent in the cup so time to change.. i think armstrong is much more pacy and creative then ward prouse i see no reason he couldnt do better then jwp as he has such a great engine to get up and down the pitch. dont have much faith in ralph to agree with this line up though for some reason jwp and hojbjerg are the first names on the team sheet and will be shoe horned in at any cost. i dont even have much faith in him bringing boufal back to the starting line up even though hes looked our most dangerous player in pretty much every game.

 

i like ralph but its time to start making sensible line ups and getting us results now. i think early on his passion was so contageous it made us fall in love with him but tbh team selection and tactic wise hes not exactly pulling up trees

And why wait 2 weeks to get them on sale after selling out the initial allocation? Our ticket office is about as competent as wee Ross' mob.

Thanks for that, probably wouldn't have checked the OS, me and the boy sorted, cheers.

I don't know how anybody would know there are now more tickets on sale. The club haven't put anything on the OS or ticket site or emailed a message (I've had 2 today about Everton tickets and firework displays, haven't a clue if it's been on twitter as don't use it) the only way would be to tap in to this fixture on the OS but as they announced 2 weeks ago "Thanks for your brilliant support/now sold out" why would many do that?

The ticket office are useless, never fail to amaze me with their incompetence.

One of the many things i hate about modern football is the faffing around with away tickets, most likely Wolves offered initial allocation on sale or return basis and remaining allocation on guaranteed sale, saints don't want to take the risk of not selling them, in the mean time fans who would have gone have probably made other plans.

 

Anyway probably doing us a favour as it's a rubbish away end and we'll almost certainly lose.

If we steal a draw we’ll be lucky (fingers crossed), but I can’t see anything other than a 2-0 win for Wolves. We’re not near their level in most areas of the field, with the possible exception of Romeu. Time to take up our spot in the relegation zone.

I like this but if fit I think Djenepo in for Armstrong and I don’t rate Bednarek. His positional play is poor.

in a 3-4-3 which prob mirrors wolves shape, also our best chance to get anything from this is if we bypass the midfield during buildups as wolves midfield will dominate our lame hoj rom combo. Go long and direct and try and counter at every opportunities. our front three should be decent enough for counters IMO as bouf, djenepo and redders do well in 1 on 1 situations.

We have quite a few Wolves fans near us and most of them say wolves blow hot and cold. Saturday could easily be a day where they slip up. We deserve some luck and we may just get it this time. Don't forget Hughes was in charge the last time and we lost in the last 15 minutes because the rot had already set in with the team and his selections. Ralph has done his homework and I believe he can see where he needs to change.

Cedric - Yoshida - Danso - Bertrand

Adams - Ings - Redmond

 

Tempted to go with Jenny if he's fit, instead of Adams but I think the latter will come good eventually. He just needs that first goal. I'd stick with that back four, even if we lose 4-0. We need a plan and we need to find some consistency from somewhere. Pick'n'mix back five or six every week is never going to solve anything.

Not convinced Yoshida will be ready, just played in Tajikistan. Wouldn't have Danso anywhere near the team (yet). JWP is pointless.

Agree, I don't even like it but I'm really struggling for better ideas myself.

 

Playing with an extra CB doesn't seem to help our defence at all. It's just more players stood gawping at each other, with their arms aloft, after we've conceded.

Armstrong for JWP maybe but I don't rate either of them.

Boufal instead of Adams... if you want.

 

Not convinced Yoshida will be ready, just played in Tajikistan. Wouldn't have Danso anywhere near the team (yet). JWP is pointless.

 

Really? Is three days not enough to recover from a few hours in business class, watching movies on demand with a glass of gin?

 

These guys should try being long-haul cabin crew.

The best of a bad bunch unfortunately which shows how low the bar is for CBs at this club. None of our CBs would make any of the starting lineups for the sides that finished above us last season.

 

I’m not sure Yoshida or Vest have been directly at fault for as many goals though so not really sure he is the best of the bunch?

 

I’ve been watching him closely recently and I’ve noticed he is very scandalously poor at picking up runs as well as slow closing down shots

 

Some may laugh but I reckon vestergaard alongside Danso could be a complimentary partnership

I am well aware of the effects of air travel and Dushanbe is hardly Melbourne when it comes to jet lag. He'll have a couple of sleepy mornings but if he genuinely wants to play Saturday, he will be fit to.

All these people putting Danso in at CB, are they paying attention to the England U-21s game against Austria U-21s?

 

I didn't but it wouldn't change my mind if I did. We need an actual game plan based on the attributes our players have and we need to stick to it until it starts to work.

 

If we start dropping players because of one bad game for another team, it really points to us not having a clue and just picking reactive teams based on short term hunches.
