    Plenty of 5's in there though, right rob? ;)

    Anyway, I really don't understand why you got so upset. As I explained already, I read Kelt's post as if he was shocked to see a top 6 side get battered when it's nothing new. Arsenal have treated us to that more times than I can remember. Tbf, it's only the once so far this season.

    City can tonk any side in the world 6-0 if they aren’t at the top of their game defensively, really isn’t surprising considering the Bournemouth result for Chelsea recently.

    I’ll give Emery a pass as it’s his first season, but Wenger was the reason we got so embarrassed all the time. Ironically, he was a bit like Sarri. This vision of how he wanted to play and he wouldn’t change it no matter who the opponent was. And unfortunately, it led to a few batterings. The one time the Arsenal players rebelled against it and decided themselves how they would play, was before a city game, and we went up there and done them 2-1. If Wenger had done the decent thing and moved aside when the time was right, we’d have never suffered the years of humiliating defeats.

    And it was against the best side in the League too so you can't be too critical. Anyway, sorry if I upset you rob.

    No need to apologise, you didn’t upset me. Far worse things to get upset about than a football disagreement lol.

    I knew we’d get duffed up against Liverpool away. There was no way our defence was coping with that attack. I was bloody delighted that we kept you to one goal in the home match and managed to get a draw.

    Oh my word, Wolves score to equalize in the last seconds of the game!

    Newcastle fans will be sick.

    I dunno what the ref and commentators have been drinking. The wolves player had both his arms around the goalie's neck .That has to be a foul

    Newcastle keeper needs to learn to catch/punch a ball.

    Needs a knee in the back as well as arms around the head for a foul?

    Sickerner right at the end. Way overtime for the 4 allotted minutes.

    Keeper cost us a few points recently.

    Next 4 games make or break

    Yep, a point at Spurs and two this evening… and every point counts.

    The next two games are proper 6-pointers.

    Gutted.

    Liked the look of Almiron as soon as he took his first touch.

    That’s the 5th goal Wolves have scored past 92mins this season. Never leave their matches early !!
    Also, Wolves got the winner against Newcastle earlier in the season in the 94th minute.

    Not only was it way over the 4 minutes but I'm sure it was a foul in the corner just before the cross got put in.
