🥊Milwall v Wolves🥊[live] 13:00 KO

Well, Xmas is done and still Halfy brings you the best match thread around no need to thank me guys, it's easy for a ledge like me

One match ban enabled

Millwall manager Neil Harris could make changes after the quick turnaround from Saturday's 3-0 defeat at Derby.

Midfielder Shaun Williams will be pushing for his first start since September after coming on as a substitute in the past three matches and Fred Onyedinma is fit again.

Wolves head coach Nuno Espirito Santo may also rotate his squad.

Ruben Vinagre. Helder Costa, Alfred N'Diaye and Bright Enobakhare are all hoping for recalls.

Match facts

Millwall are winless in five home league games against Wolves (D3 L2) since a 1-0 win in April 2002 with Steve Claridge netting the winner.
Wolves haven't registered a league double over Millwall since the 1931/32 season.
Wolves have won their past four Boxing Day matches since a run of one win in 14 between 1998 and 2012.
Millwall have won six of their past eight home league games played on Boxing Day (D1 L1).

Miranda was a bad choice in my humble opinion also, DB would have been my choice for that game. Miranda is a classier player than DB for sure, but the ball was being hoofed up in the air and DB would have coped better with that type of thing but Nuno has a little more experience at calling the shots so I'll let him off for now. Just to add, if he messes up the thread again, I won't be quite so accommodating!

As you were.......

Think Batth will be in against Bristol assuming Boly isn't fit. Also some doubt about Cav so NES might be forced to play Jota, Costa and Bonatini which gives them little or no break.
I think the manager missed a trick yesterday by only resting Bonatini for half a match and Jota not at all. Now with injuries for what could well be our hardest game of the season, his options are far more limited.
This really highlights the need for an alternative striker for Bonatini and this would give NES more options to rotate.

Bristol City have Aden Flint, who is an absolute behemoth in defence. He has already scored 6 this year from set pieces.

If Boly isn’t fit, Danny Batth would be my choice as we will get an aerial assault from set pieces which Miranda might struggle with.

Highlight of the Wolves performance today for me was to see Costa looking like the player of last season and getting two assists. We saw two more fabulous defence splitting passes from Neves to set up chances for Doherty and Costa. Good performances also today from Doherty and Saiss who hit his goal really well.

But we didn’t defend as well today and particularly looked vulnerable in the air from corners. And it was a real surprise to see us getting caught outnumbered in Millwall breakaways as they came close to beating us at our own game. And I would be critical of Ruddy for the equaliser as he came to get a cross and got nowhere near it

Hopefully the injuries to Boly and Cavaleiro won’t keep them out for long but Nuno said after the game they weren’t serious injuries
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Just to add to this I think Nuno did the wrong move using Miranda not Batth to replace Boly as we were struggling in the air defensively. Much like the qpr away game in that respect.

And although Cavaleiro went off injured I don’t think he would have been used in the second half anyway as he was really poor in the first 45
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Whilst i agree Cav was not great first half Jota was certainly poorer and barely got involved at all.

Costa definitely the pick of the front three yesterday though and Jota much improved second half while Bonatini never really got going either

Wolves are ahead of Birmingham on goal difference.

When I say Birmingham I mean Aston Villa and Birmingham City added together.


Villa have 38 points from 24 games
Birmingham have 17 points from 24
Wolves have 55 from 24

Feckin knuckle dragging neanderthals. Some things never change.

Huge wildfire on the hillside to the north of Puerto Pollensa tonight. Winds of up to 100 kph driving the fire. I fear for the people in fincas anywhere between El Vila and Boquer valley.

Very sad to see the destruction those things leave behind.

Hope you guys and town are not on the path gem
