    Matchday Thread: Wolves v Tigers, Sunday, 16 August 2015.

    My first trip to Molineux since Christmas. Been on the road since 06.00 and really looking forward to the match. I think Hull City will be a difficult team to beat and I suspect this will be a close one. Maybe if we can get out of the 'starting blocks' from the word 'go', we can take the game to them. A win of a two-goal difference or more will see us at the top. Let's hope that's where we will be, by two o'clock this afternoon.

    Same team as Blackburn for me. Maybe van La Parra/Ojo in for Henry.

    I'll give it to Hélder Costa

    It's the same team mate, apparently.

    I'm okay with that if true. Edwards, Coady & Golbourne will have to work hard down our left hand side vs Elmo & Odubajo but I'd back Dicko & Afobe to give their centre halves all sorts of problems and keep Hull on the back foot.

    This'll be a big test for us and perhaps an indicator of where we can expect to be this season. Hull will be one of the best in the league, beating them today would be huge.

    Looking forward to this one (even though I mistakenly thought it was yesterday!). I think we'll give them a good game and it'll be a draw; would like to see us go for the jugular at home. I'm most looking forward to seeing Coady play after reviews from his first two games.

    Think a good performance and a draw will be a decent result for us at this stage

    We should be looking to win every home game we play. Especially against a newly relegated team. Just look at the start of last season when we beat all three of them.

    Understandable, But at this time with Kenny Jackett looking to change the shape and system as long as we find some fluency and create chances I will be reasonably happy whatever todays result.

    We will win 1-0 and Hull will have a man sent off.

    Hopefully we will start a little bit better than at Ewood Park. Take the game to Hull early on, and see how they cope with Afobe and Dicko.

    Wolves 2 - 0 Tigers

    As per my comments on the other thread I think the same formation and personnel would be a mistake. I think a 2 2 draw

    Am hoping to find a good stream for this from where I am in Spain. Interesting to see Martínez in there.

    2-1 to the good guys!

    Martinez gets the nod then. Otherwise unchanged.

    I just hope those who have developed Stockholm Syndrome and decided in the last seven days that Edwards sort of on the left is a good idea don't slate the manager afterwards if and when it doesn't work.

    1-1 for me.

    I'm surprised by that, I don't think Ikeme deserves to lose his place and has been consistently good for the last two seasons. That said if Martinez is better then so be it.

    Martinez selection - very brave.

    Yeah, hopefully he repays Kenny's faith with a clean sheet.

    Are we on tv today? Do we reckon there will be streams?

    We're on Sky so there should be plenty of streams knocking about.

    Very surprised to see to see Ikeme dropped - would be absolutely delighted with a win today, as with Burnley and Derby already dropping points that would be a nice lead over main opponents with only two games gone.Will tentatively go for 2-1
    Prediction 24th January: 14 games to go: 6 wins, 5 draws, 3 defeats - final points 57 when the league finishes in May 2023...

    Martinez selection very brave...especially as he was unconvincing by all accounts against Newport.
    And still not keen on the idea of a loanee first choice in goal.

    But still think the team is strong enough to make it an excellent game.
    Think I'll go 2-2.

    Weren't there suggestions the Martinez loan was conditional on him starting the majority of games?

    Also surprised to see Martinez get the nod. Slightly surprised we've gone with the narrow formation again. I think Hulls wing backs might attack the wide positions with some success, but I can understand why Kenny didn't want to change it.

    Looks like a 4-4-2 from Hull for me.

    That's a seriously strong Hull side - at least on paper

    Blimey. Could be 2-0 already.

    Very brave of Kenny to start Martinez hopefully he repays the faith. Also have to say I think we'll have some joy with our pace against Dawson.
