    I think we're pretty even in terms of squad and positions around the pitch.

    I think Patricio shades it slightly in the goalkeeping department
    Their fullbacks are comparable to our wing-backs
    Their midfield has quality and work-rate as does ours
    Both teams have good forwards but Vardy is probably more clinical than Raul but Jota is better than Perez
    I'd say our CB's are better than Leicester's though provided we don't leave tonnes of room to Vardy to run into

    I can see us being setup to counter-attack and hitting Leicester on the break

    Sorry, I meant straight after he scored.

    It seemed like a planned sub to me

    It's a pretty even match-up but I just feel we'll have our tails up after an exceptional pre-season / early start. Off the top of my head they must have scored more against us in the PL than any other team last year? Yet I still fancy us to shut them out. 2-0 Wolves.

    There's some potential in that, but a word or two of explanation might not go amiss. Without it I couldn't really be bothered to wade through it all to get to know the characters

    I think we'll struggle a bit today. They're a very decent team. I'd settle for a draw.

    2-1 Wolves. Think the fact that our players have already played 3 competitive games will be telling today.

    That’s what I’m hoping is the way it goes - rather than the travel hindering us. As we go on it will become more difficult but our pre season preparation has been very good.

    I keep reading about travel and what happened to previous 7th placed teams.

    We have a spine of a squad made up of players who have played European football. Patricio. Moutinho and Raul are all used to this. Jota, Neves, Cutrone and Jesus have also been in this situation before and I'm sure it won't make a differenceto them.

    Most importantly we have a manager who is used to this too and he will know how to prepare accordingly. I don't think it will be a big deal at all.
    Nothing to see here...... can't offend sensitive souls.

    I think if we're going the same eleven Thursday Sunday Thursday Sunday for 5-6 weeks it might cause us problems. Next Thursday we can make 5-6 changes though, and providing we're no worse than level on the night at half time, end up with 8 players on the pitch that aren't going to start against united

    We also played mid week games in the championship without massive issues. I’m hopeful we can pull off a good result today - come on the Wolves!!
    Feigning concern, a Labour pastime, makes you feel doubtful right from the start. The expression he pulls is exactly like last time, got to assume he just hasn't a brain!

    Speaking to some Leicester fans on the train they’ll take a draw too. Think we are Very equal In every department.
    As usual, Wolves fans being fickle. - Waggy on the Wing

    I honestly expect us to be capable of winning every game we play now. We won't, of course, but it's a great feeling to have, when not so long back in the prem it was 'How many are we going to lose by?'. We've come such a long way.

    Nerves are kicking in now...
    Don't wear no leather to fit in
    Don't wear no spikes to be cool
    Don't need no woman beside him

    Nuno will go full strength today, knowing he can rest a few of them on Thursday. Doc in at RWB & Jonny at LWB. Rest of the side picks itself.

    I reckon we’ll win. 2-1 Wolves.

    If Doherty plays then our medical team are miracle workers.

    Think it will be Jonny on the right and Vinagre left. Doc didn't look fit to me yet.

    Prediction: Someone to complain that we have started slow as if they haven't watched us for over two years now.

    He starts. Neto on the bench. Vallejo isn't.

    Doc will start. He'd have been off straight after the goal if there were any concerns. 3-1 wolves. Come on me babbies!

    No Vallejo in the squad’s a little surprising, as is Neto on the bench.

    First 11’s as predictable as can be.

    Just take a moment to let this sink in. We have signed a player from Real Madrid: he doesn't make the bench.
    Foxes 0-1 Wolves (Doherty, who else?)

    He looked dead a couple of days ago. Remarkable recovery.

    Saiss will cover CB, we don’t usually have a specialist CB on the bench do we?
