He trained yesterday probably being held back as he missed a lot of pre season.
Fitness seems to be a problem for him it's never a long one but always seems to go missing for few weeks with one injury or another.
To me he looks like the natural successor to Herrera in that midfield as he's an energetic ball winner who's got a bit of quality on the ball he just hadn't quite got the speed of the league and playing a little further forward might help him. A big problem last season was when he went deep teams would press him and he'd panic and make mistakes losing the ball in a dangerous area with a centre back who can bring the ball out now maybe he won't have to go so deep?
I think this game is a tougher game for us than the Chelsea game. And I also think it'll be a better yard stick to measure where this team is at. Do we go with the same line up? I hope not as I don't really want Pereira to play but then who else steps in?
Hate Monday night games especially early in the season.
Not looking forward to this at all Wolves have had a few Europa League games as well so they're probably a bit more up to speed than us and they've basically got the same starting XI as last year with a few more weapons off the bench.
Honestly I'd take a draw might feel like a bit of a momentum killer but in isolation that's a good point but a win would be massive.
Anyone seen Charlie Nicholas' comments? Honestly what a load of rubbish. Maguire was average against Chelsea? Wasn't a leader? He has suspicions about the right and left back positions? Has he seen AWB play? The guy doesn't know what he's talking about.
