    Newcastle will be without captain Jamaal Lascelles for up to three months after he suffered knee ligament damage in the 2-1 win over Bournemouth.

    Shame for them, good for us.

    Big miss for them.  He’s a promising young player.   Let’s not forget that “Agent Clark” will probably start for them, which should help! 

  2. Is it very much “old school” to have two players protecting either post now?  We clearly don’t do it, but can’t think if other sides in the Premier League still do?  

    Last I can remember for us was Albrighton saving us about three or four certain goals a season doing it.

    If his attitude was poor, he shouldn’t have been signed in the first place, Smith should’ve done his homework 

    Agreed, but also consider that the deal to bring him here may have agreed prior to Smith’s arrival or his intervention.

    So Hutton had a good game against Adama who's hardly been known for his even quality while Targett had a poor game against a more mature Adama who had a solid game.

    It's pretty much like suggesting we are better than Man City since we only lost by 1 goal against Liverpool and they lost by 2.


    You’ve lost me mate?  Think you misunderstood the point i was making.

    Absolutely nothing?

    What I’m trying to say is if Hutton was so woeful, Targett’s display against Adama would send him to hell - according to some on here!  I don’t think Hutton was as bad as some suggest that’s all.

    £7m spent on him, I wouldn’t rule him out of having success here, he hasn’t really had a fair crack at the whip for me. He’s only played 9 games for us according to wiki, are we in a position where we can just discard a £7 Croatia international goalkeeper? I don’t think so

    Don’t disagree with you at all SGC, but do we know if he wants a crack at it here?  For all we know, his attitude could be poor and he wants out, which may explain his absence from the squad?

    Looks like I have an interview this week, the job is office based for another company.

    Would you say I need a suit for it? The only suits I have are more wedding/informal sorts.

    I normally go to interviews in trousers, with a shirt and tie. Would this be considered too informal?

    Basically is a jacket a requirement?

    I’ve worked in office based roles for twenty plus years and wouldn’t mark somebody down for not wearing a full suit.  Shirt and tie is nice to see though, especially at interviews.

    All the very best mate 👍

  8. I love McGinn, I really do, but unless he provides a response in training, then i would consider dropping him against Newcastle. 

    No player is bigger than the team and if you don’t perform, you should run the risk of being dropped.  Otherwise, what message does it send out to the rest of the squad? 

    Very much hope though that the last couple of weeks have been a minor blip and we see the usual SJM in two weeks.  

  9. Starting to worry a little now.  Wesley should be a project where we can remove him from a game here and there or sub him earlier.  Problem is we should have bought another striker in the summer to compete with him and we didn’t for whatever reason.  January signing is key. 

  10. Watched the game at the in-laws who are all Wolves fans.  Bad day all round, although the pork sandwich's that were presented softened the mood.

    Injuries pre game and during clearly rocked us, but let’s not dress up what was a very poor performance from us.  The least I want to see is fight and it was lacking first half and only slightly improved in the second.  

    Trezeguet MOTM (only just) and not because he scored, but he was the brightest of our forward thinking players today.  Nakamba was ok, McGinn poor.  El Ghazi anonymous first half and only gave us something in the final 20 minutes.  Wesley fed off scraps, but he fluffed his chance and should have done far far better with it.  At least hit the target man.  Defence seemed rocky all game.  Where is Hause?  Would have preferred him coming on to mark Adama. 

    So to the goals.  Wolves first you could see coming and we should be switched on to someone on the edge of the area. Poor.  The second, well for starters the Luiz challenge out wide was laughable.  I didn’t actually think we’d score, but pleased for Trez. 

    In summary, we were terrible.  Wolves kept the ball much better, but didn’t think they were great and we made them look better than they were.  As previously said, injuries rocked us, but where was our fight and desire?  Smith needs to rally the troops quickly, which is difficult during an international fortnight, but confidence building is key now.  We need to be ready and blow Newcastle away in the next.

    Helenus says hi too and Bowery just walked past.... 

    Grant Holt standing still and Gary Penrice.  Both awful strikers for us.   Finally, after a very promising debut, Carlton Cole was very poor.

    Reading on the Wolves forum they seem very, very confident.

    No reason why we shouldn’t be confident either.  Wolves aren't hitting the heights of last season and their best defender is out (Boly).  We certainly shouldn’t fear them, but respect that they are useful going forward.  

    Grealish out (if he is) would be a blow to us, but I think our energy in midfield may be too much for them.  Their midweek game could play a part hopefully with tiredness etc.

    My real concern here is that we have been conceding second half goals cheaply and Wolves seem to love a late goal.  Can therefore see us going 1or 2 goals ahead and then us being pegged back.    Hoping for a 2-1 win, but could end up 2-2 or a 2-1 defeat.   One thing is for sure, it won’t end up 0-0.

    Yep it certainly wasn’t a race sacking, she just never spoke. In the after show she seemed an intelligent individual, probably too nice for the show. 

    Thomas, he does seem to have a liking for him, he did to a similar interviewee who was the plumber a few years back. He seems to like the cockney wide boy attitude 

    That’s him.  Yeah, I remember the plumber as well and agree, he likes the working family background types for sure.  He’s in the final at least i reckon (Thomas).

    Another non white person fired...

    The young lady fired last night was pretty useless to be fair.  However, looking back over Lord Sugar’s firing during this series especially, it doesn’t paint him in a good light.

    I think Lord Sugar has a real soft spot for the big fella, but can’t think of his name?Annoying as he is.
