    After a good night out.8 games in 1 defeat plus 10 goal difference. Would I buy that ,yes all day long.In my humble opinion there's a lot more to come from this team and I fully expect a top 2 finish.

    Good post. Yesterday was a poor performance by the standards of this season to date but a few of the reactions on here have been over the top imo.

    Several players have a real off day and if that was to happen more regularly and become a loss of form then I'd be worried. But I'm not yet. Besides which, Potts coming back in will make a difference and I hope Woodrow and Hedges will when they are back too.

    We'll play worse than yesterday and win. All about taking chances. We're certainly creating them.

    Just watching Wolves - dominated Burnley, 20 shots, 7 on target (think we’ve achieved a better ratio this season but stand correcting )
    Only 1-0 though.
    Another poor side there.....

    No idea what's to come, but no problems with what's gone so far. Much better than I imagined, some very dominant to performances, 1 defeat at a ground where I'd written off the result before the season started.

    I do think that reactions on the evening after the game should be taken with a pinch of salt though. Particularly from those who have been to the match. (This is not a better fan post, I didn't go yesterday). You plan your weekend around an away game. It can take up all your Saturday and a lot of your disposable income. For 90 minutes your emotions are seriously heightened and if we lose there's a huge sense of disappointment/frustration. I don't think you're in a position to give a balanced view, but conversely you're desperate to have a rant. A football forum seems an ideal place for that to take place without you being labelled as a sh*t fan/crap person.

    Yep. And some of them are going to get better as the season goes on.
