Stoke v Wolves Match Day [LIVE]

Live @ https://www.ja606.co.uk/articles/viewLiveArticle/435542
One match ban enabled

The 2021/22 season will kick off on the second weekend in August with the fixtures due to be announced at 9 am on Wednesday (June 16th),
Newly appointed head coach Bruno Lage is in place, we await the return of the squad from international duty at the end of the month and the inevitable transfers in and out.
Now that Nuno will be taking on the managerial role at Tottenham it will be fascinating to watch how the Spurs squad develop under his tutelage.

My daughter and her partner went to watch the England cricket game. She said that after so long of being suppressed by Covid-19, the atmosphere with a crowd of 17,000 in attendance was unbelievable. Let's hope that our first game at Molineux has 32,000 fans in the stadium, the atmosphere in there will be something else!!

It's exciting times for Wolverhampton Wanderers FC and I'm looking forward to this season, to see the Lage evolution of the squad and hopefully, see us qualify for European football again.

We didn't really have many set pieces to defend but we looked shaky from crosses, think their goal came from a corner which we didn't deal with.

Certainly no concerns about Jimenez's form, I thought he was the best player on the pitch by a mile, sharper and more creative than anyone else. Linked well with mgw in the second half.

Well I'm sorry but anyone who can't see the value of Adama Traore has a serious agenda gong on. Playing on the left he is a serious threat. When he switches to the right he's lethal. The club will be making a serious mistake to let him go.

We need to sell if we want to improve the side Gem, and he would get a good fee right now. Given a choice of selling him or Neves then it's Traore every time. A month from now Bruno will be wondering whether to start him or bench him after frustrating performances I suspect. Perhaps Bruno will get the best out of him though, we shall see but for me I would rather us buy a couple of first team ready players than keep him.

Seen a lot of criticism for Silva today along with Hoever

If we need to sell to buy then I can think of at least 6 players I would rather sell than Traore. Neto and Jimenez might be dynamite but it's Traore that provides the spark to ignite them.

Traore can be a match winner at any level and with better players alongside him than we had last season he will be a great asset if we can hold onto him. He is being linked with Liverpool, Chelsea and Barcelona so to not recognise him as a key player for Wolves is a bit bonkers

Nuno must have been bonkers I guess

Silva had a terrible 15 minutes or so, don't think he completed a single pass and his touch was awful. We know he can do better than that. First appearance in front of the fans maybe spooked him. The weirdest thing was seeing players who've been at the club over a year for the first time in the flesh.

Notable at the end that Cutrone headed down the tunnel on his own and despite two thousand people singing the pizza pasta song too him barely acknowledged them.

Traore looked dangerous, we were a lot more fluid in attack and I think it suited him.

Would love it if Bruno gets something out of Traore and you would think a more attacking approach would suit him. Must be tough for Cutrone though, in his head he has made his mind up he is leaving, I just hope he doesn't choose the wrong option again.

Still a bit concerned we won't see the additions we need but plenty of time yet.

It was interesting to see Traore on the left. Bruno has made it clear he likes inverted wingers and Traore looked equally comfortable going inside or outside his full back. I read online a few people being disappointed with Trincao but I thought he linked well with Semedo who played a very forward role.

We do need to get it right defending from corners though. Stoke’s goal was completely against the run of play and came from a scramble after we failed to clear a corner. And Sa seems a very different keeper to Rui. Very positive and keen to come off his line and even play as a sweeper on the edge of the box. That’s good if you get it right but I suspect we might have a few heart stopping moments
