Second-half thoughts

Wolves; Were far brighter and more purposeful in the second-half in contrast to the opening 45 minutes. Will count themselves unlucky to not come away with a point, but they had good opportunities rather than great chances to get something from the game., A couple of impressive players in Jarvis and Henry but over the course of the season may rue a lack of quality in attack.

City; Paid the price for not adding a second goal. Whilst only holding a goal lead you leave the door open for the opposition, and at times we put ourselves under pressure. Less penetration and pressure up front but both Adebayor and Bellamy could (and should) have put us 2-0 up. They didn't and on another day we may have paid the price, and to be fair we ground our rather than hung on for the win.

Full review to follow.

Good match and absolutely no shame in it from a Wolves' perspective.
We're still finding our feet at this level and once we have a fully fit Doyle and Ebanks-Blake I can see us turning teams over.
City will go from strength to strength as the season progresses, the team still need time to get used to each other but you've had a great start and I don't see that changing much.
Good luck for the rest of the campaign.

You're a gentleman and a scholar Wolfbane..I really hope Wolves stay up this year, you're one of the original big clubs with history and you deserve to be up there with the rest of them. They showed guts today and didn't crumble under the pressure and would have gone away with something if it wasn't for Shay Given (phew..!)

Early days for the City still and 3 points is 3 points at the end of the day so lets just keep moving forward.

Good luck Wolves.
