Match Thread: West Ham vs Wolves


By Wolves
June 20 2020

So after the long and unexpected break, Wolves' season restarts today with the delayed game at West Ham. In common with all other matched it will be played in an empty stadium, with social distancing still being the order of the day.

Coach Nuno Espirito Santo will be hoping his team can keep up the excellent performances they have put in up until March and achieve another three point to put Wolves in level 5th place. West Ham start the gamein rth from bottom and will be playing for their survival so there is a lot at stake in this game. Wolves have a fully fit squad to choose from whereas Hammers Boss David Moyes has some ongoing injuries restricting his team selection.

 

Today's game is live on Sky Sports kicking off at 5:30 pm.

It is hoped regular updates will be posted for the benefit of those unable to watch it, and members are encouraged to post their own observations.

Hi Chesh, hope all is well.

All Wolves then West Ham get the best chance and sky it. A dreadful effort, thank goodness!

Stop for drinks then Wolves take up possession again p. Sails concedes free kick but Hammers waste it

When Jota gets his hatrick I hope Wolves remember not to pat him on the back!

Doc sets up Raul on edge of box but his shot is stifled by a Rice. Hammers break & earn a corner. Well taken by Rui. Shot from distance by Saiss easily collected

Afternoon Billericay - it’s been a while! A Jota hat Rick would do very nicely

We’re the better side but didn’t really trouble Fabianski. Hammers had a few dangerous moments. Overall a decent half of football.

Jota has let himself go since winning the FIFA premier league title. His hair is a disgrace 😂

No changes to either team as second half starts. Ngakia gets a shot away but Rui collects comfortably

Strange free kick routine by Joao. Don’t think it will be too long before Adama replaces Donk

That was a fabulous cross, superb. On a plate for Jimenez, he don't miss them

The better side throughout, a couple of scares but nothing too bad. Hats off to the lads, very good performance indeed with two terrific goals.

UTW!!

That’s it three well deserved points to kick start our season. Two excellent goals from our lads, one could be goal of the month. That puts us on level points in joint 5th place with Man Utd. Dizzy Heights!! SWho would have thought 4 points ahead of Spurs & 6 ahead of Arsenal. Bring on Bournemouth on Wednesday
West Ham 0 Wolves 2

Always in control, I thought. Rui never seriously troubled. What an impact from Traore! Don't know what to say about Neto's volley except, what a goal!
Particularly pleasing as we can be slow starters after a break, even if it's only for an international.
Jota desperately needs a black market hair cut.

Hi everyone - just popped on to say hello. Hope you are all well. Good start today - last on MOTD??? Watching a bit of the Bournemouth match - doesn't look as if they'll cause us any trouble.

Stay safe!

Traore seems to have benefitted from the recovery time to his shoulder.
