Oh good, you get to see how useless we are on Sky Sports this Friday.

We pose no threat whatsoever in the final third, and that will continue here. In real danger of slipping out of the playoffs after this.

Wolves 2-0 Derby

Looking forward to watching this. A big game to kick off the Championship weekend.

Hoping for a Derby loss or draw though. Sorry, Rammy :gr:

You'll get what you want then.

As long as Wolves show up, then it's an easy three points for them.

Wolves 1-5 Derby

Leon will return from his loan spell and score a last min 30 yard strike. #progress
Can't see it. I think we could win this, pushing on from last night. I'like to go but have an early morning meeting Saturday so can't.

I think 1-0 to us, maybe 2-0. Derby will return to form but hopefully not until next week.

Martin and Thorne ruled out for this game, we won't take any risks.

Bent is in training and has a chance.

Well Done Wolves on the cheap tickets too. £14.50 is a great price.

You're lucky, haven't seen tickets that cheap for years at Wolves. Hopefully it can be a sell out.

The bad news for Wolves is that Richard Stearman was stretchered off last night, him and Danny Batth have been solid for us this season. If he doesn't recover I'm not too confident on Ethan Ebanks-Landell coming on in his place for such a big game.

I was surprised to see them so cheap, especially as I bought mine at the same time as my Norwich away one for £40.. there shouldn't be such a gap in price for the same level of football! I know it's Friday and on SKY but hats off to Wolves. Let's just hope the Friday traffic doesn't fuck things up.

Ticket Office say they expect there to be over 30,000 on Friday. Think all the tickets are half price to make us look good on sky
:milk:
This is cunning. Distract the discerning viewer. Like it.
"Look love! The football's shite but there's a lot of people in the ground."
"Ooh eck, yes! Shall we count them?"
"Yes. Lets. You get the Lidl own-brand digestives and I'll start counting"

You mad?

Probably the best time it's been to play us all year...

I go in hope more than expectation. Hope it's a good game and we go for it, our last two outings have been very tame.

There are rumours that we might start Kevin Doyle which would be a first start for him since January 2014. Looks like KJ wants to take a more defensive approach than the win vs Sheff Wed.

For my many accumulators I wanted to know who would win this encounter. The form guide suggest Wolves will because Derby have been terrible on the road in recent weeks. Though having said that something has got to give and just like Blackburn did in ending their winless streak away from home, I suspect Derby might do something similar.

My head says Wolves, while my gut says a draw.

Bent is at Molineux! Whether he starts is another matter, but he's in the squad!

EDIT: So is George Thorne!

i don't blame him. No matter all this messing with our heads shit from the Derby fans here, I'm not confident. We didn't look good at Brighton. Derby have hit a rough patch, yes, but they are still probably the best team in the division. I just went through the five goals and a few other highlights clips on YouTube.

I think KJ would be happy with a draw, and so would I. I'm not saying he'll set up for a draw, but playing Doyle and Dicko/Afobe makes more sense than van la Parra IMHO. I wasn't at the Tuesday Wednesday game but two of the goals showed clever work by James Henry. I hope he plays. Maybe we'll see a 4-5-1 formation

Just noticed Wolves are right on the brink of the Play Offs, hadn't noticed them sneaking up. Derby bumholes will be twitching like mad if they lose this, their form is terrible and whilst I have nothing against them it would be funny to see them bomb and miss the play offs.

Been optimistic all season but can finally say we aren't good enough. Our defence is pathetic.

If Mac does worse than last year then I think the board will be having some stern words with him. Maybe next year :bl:
