    How did Vallejo end up looking overall?

    Okay - he steadied a bit in the second half, his pace helped him a lot, doesn’t look ready to Get Bennett’s place though.

    Thought Adama, Raul and Saiss were excellent tonight. Belotti is excellent for them, he must be horrible to play against.

    Great result, will look forward to the draw tomorrow now!
    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!

    Gonna have to give Traore MOTM. Like I said in the match thread, I’ll put up with the occasional sloppy error from him because of what he gives you at the other end. It’s his shirt to lose now, IMO.

    Raul and Saiss were also excellent & Jota had a good second half.

    Jesus still looks a little rusty and I suspect Bennett will start again in the league at the weekend.

    Considering we had such a difficult draw, we’ve sailed through it. Thank you to Nuno and all involved. The Europa League. Bloody hell.

    Decent game utterly and completely spoiled by the shameful way it was policed. Great way to make friends Wolverhampton

    Wolverhampton Wanderers have qualified for a major European Competition proper... Let that sink in a minute... brilliant
    Wolves have ambition and wit... why is it such a crime?

    Group of death looks like, Roma, Mönchengladbach and Rangers.
    Easier group CSKA, Ludogorets and Dudelange.
    Almost certain we’ll be seen as ones to avoid from pot 3.

    Jota looks to be getting his mojo back.

    Belotti is one of those forwards that means you always have a chance. I'd love to see him at Wolves, gave Vallejo a torrid time

    Saiss imperious again, Moutinho excellent as always - dude wasn't even sweating.

    Traore will learn when to try to dribble out of his own half, Torino gave him the opportunity to do it a few times then took the ball off him - he will learn though.

    Traore was devastating again, simply unstoppable

    Saiss was absolutely magnificent tonight.

    I forgot just how good he is when he’s on his game.

    Faultless.

    Traore struggled for ten minutes and then was majestic thereafter.

    Who were those tourist plastic tough guys that spent their time ripping the piss out of the Torino fans rather than watch the match? Wankers to a man.

    Another fan of Belotti here. I reckon he’d be brilliant in the Premier League.

    I agree Saiss and Traore were excellent as was Moutino and Jota, but MoM for me was Jiminez.

    Incredible achievement tonight. All I kept thinking was that once the final whistle went, and group stage was confirmed, was that the sleeping giant has fully woken. What a journey it has been for this club.

    Proud to have shared the last 10 year rollercoaster on here with you all xx

    Yeah Belotti looks quality. Saiss superb, Traore superb, Jota superb, Raul superb. Boly and Vallejo both had shaky starts, but both improved with Boly at times looking his imperious best. I wish it wasn't a disturbing pattern that we start slowly in most games, but it happens so often you have to wonder if it's a deliberate strategy.

    Adama and Saiss joint MOTM.

    Is this just the pre-match stuff or something else? Wasn't there, unfortunately

    Sounds like something that needs to be addressed at the parliament. Or would've been one for Laurie, potentially.

    Is it wrong of me to have shed an emotional tears of joy at the end. Never thought I'd see Wolves in Europe. Tonight is good night.

    Everyone having to go around the Wrekin to get back to town so they could keep a totally friendly away support away from us. Arseholes. As soon as the announcement came over the tannoy I walked out to avoid that shit and walked through an absolute police state. Over the top. Ridiculous to the point of being offensive to our fans and also our guests who will have been left with a dreadful impression of Wolverhampton.

    Fuck off WMP. Just fuck off.

    Europa.

    Holy shit.

    Dendoncker was superb tonight. Absolutely superb.

    Saiss MOTM for me. Dendoncker and Traore definitely mentioned in despatches though.

    Anyway, the Pot 2 miracle didn't happen! Just about every result we would have needed went against us. Not to worry though.

    Netherlands PSV Eindhoven CC: 37.000
    Russia Krasnodar CC: 34.500
    Scotland Celtic CC: 31.000
    Denmark Copenhagen CC: 31.000
    Portugal Braga CC: 31.000
    Belgium Gent CC: 29.500
    Germany Borussia Mönchengladbach CC: 29.000
    Switzerland Young Boys CC: 27.500
    Kazakhstan Astana CC: 27.500
    Bulgaria Ludogorets Razgrad CC: 27.000
    Cyprus APOEL CC: 25.500
    Germany Eintracht Frankfurt CC: 24.000

    That's pot 2

    Frankly only the two German clubs and Eindhoven would worry me. We would twat Celtic.

    The policing was bollocks. Saw a loads of Torino fans being forceably marched in, while others happily stood around by the north bank bar.

    Dendonker is starting to remind me of Patrick Viera. So composed under pressure, lovely finish tonight

    Dendoncker was fantastic tonight. We really missed him against Burnley until he came on. Does so much work at both ends of the pitch.
    Oh my god! Whitney's dead? How's Michael Jackson taking it?

    Fucking get in! Absolutely delighted.

    I'm not bothered who we get in the group stage. I'm just going to enjoy being there and I'd put us in with a chance if qualifying whoever we are drawn against.

    Don't know why there was such a police presence. I ended up walking into the station with Torino fans anyway and there were no problems. They were way OTT.

    Same here. An absolute nonsense. Heavy-handed twats must have given such a bad impression of Wolverhampton and our club.
