Gained ground on Wolves, Villa and Sheff utd.

Wolves unable to beat Sunderland despite a man advantage, does highlight that as good as they can be, they arent THAT good.

Only caught last 30mins of the Sky game, Norwich Vs Weds.

God knows how we lost to Weds, pish poor side.

Two best players on the pitch were Nelson Oliviera and the fantastic James Maddison.

Probably out of our price range but they were superb.

Maddison has been good this season, if Vieira and Phillips play like today though we should be able to stop them playing and give our forwards the opportunity to do the damage. Think Saiz will do well as they don’t really have the players to set up to stop him.

Was really impressed with Maddison, tricky little player, kind of reminds me of Hernandez, his set piece and his dribbling ability.

That match was all about the first goal. We had a couple of great chances and dominated before they scored. Similar story second half we battered them for a while and missed a couple more great chances before they scored. The scoreline and last 20 minutes of the match made it look like a very comfortable Sheff Wed win.

Great finish . .thats why you pay the big bucks.

Point is Wolves have enough quality & know how to scrap out a victory hence why they are walking the championship

Find myself agreeing again. Even against us they were nothing special but then scored a quality goal to break the deadlock and then looked decent. Second half was all us until Vieira's red card. They look reasonably strong defensively and then have several players with the quality to find a goal out of nothing - similar to us at our best last season albeit we only had Wood, the occasional bit of brilliance from Pablo or Bartley/Jannson from a corner.

Could do with Wolves absolutely running away with the division and beating all the teams around us. Don't think there is a great deal of difference in any of the rest of the teams from 2nd place down to 24th so certainly nothing for us to be afraid of if we make the play-offs. Contrast to last season where if we'd made the play-offs Huddersfield and Fulham looked really good and would probably have beaten us.
