Wolves 2 Newcastle 2 – Live response from NUFC fans and writers

Newcastle United are back in Premier League action.

Eddie Howe and his players hoped to bounce back from that midweek Dortmund defeat.

Nat Seaton:

Despite the bad weather (again! ), we had a decent game of football.

We’ve given up a winning position away from home, exactly like West Ham, but you have to give the team credit for the week they’ve had.

 

We finished strongly once again when the Wolves may have continued after their equalizer.

We wouldn’t have taken a draw away from home not long ago, which shows how far we’ve come. The manager and players will be devastated.

 

I’m not disappointed because they couldn’t have given us anything more, and we’ll take the point and head to Old Trafford on Wednesday!

Matt Busby said to Joe Harvey:

We are falling behind the top five.

There are some tired legs out there.

 

We were 2-1 up for the second time in a row away from home, but we couldn’t hold on.

Alright, let us move on to Old Toilet.

 

I smell revenge for February of last year.

 

Billy Miller says:

In the rain, it was an entertaining game, but we were hurt.

Aside from a rusted Willock, there were no game changers on their bench.

Howe plainly agreed, with one exception.

 

Could we try playing Livramento in a wing position to give us an option?

Is Hall not performing in training at all to be getting so few opportunities?

Even though it is difficult to start these inexperienced players in a close game, we will need to use them in future games.

 

We will be playing every 4.5 days or so in November, and we need to be able to rotate.

We have to keep Wilson fit!

That was, in my opinion, a valid point, and it continues the Premier League’s nice run of wins.”

 

Tony Mallabar:

Soaked today after a 2-2 draw, where do we go from here??

Man utd out of course.

Corals, Mal, and I have been harping on about Pope’s lack of movement when receiving crosses into the box throughout the season. Today, we finally got their second equalizer.

“But well played to the Wolves fans with their Honved 54 banner pre-game. Knowing is knowing.

Back on the coach, cheeseburgered up.

David Punton:

I’ll always welcome a point on the road.

We managed to avoid a midweek loss in Europe by winning this one tonight, and if we had not made any midweek efforts, we could have finished at 1-2.

 

On the flip side, there was a time when a draw at Molineux was seen as a decent result.

Perhaps Eddie could have used a few more options from his bench?

 

Pains me to say it but we need the midweek league cup at Old Trafford like the proverbial hole in the head.

Competing on so many fronts is taxing the mind and straining the sinews.”

Jamie Smith:

Unfortunately, the normal Molineux stalemate resembles two points dropped.

Pope’s bad decision to punch when a catch was on occurred at the end of a period of Wolves pressure that was cut short seconds later when Neto was sent off.

 

The draw will almost certainly lose us a couple of places in the table, but perhaps more importantly, the impact of another tough game in terrible circumstances on an increasingly tired starting XI.

 

The Carabao Cup could have provided some respite if Wednesday’s defeat was detrimental to our CL ambitions, but I don’t see Eddie having much choice other than repeated naps on Wednesday.

Even though a more forgiving draw would have been much appreciated, Old Trafford may be a challenging evening in front of more demanding matches against Dortmund and Arsenal.

Bruno seemed good, but Schar stood out to me as yet another amazing example of backwards creation.

Paul Patterson:

Inconsistent refs and an erratic goalkeeper cost us.

 

Bazoox:

I was happy at halftime because I thought we would win today.

Callum Wilson has never let us down in terms of goal scoring.

The second half saw the Wolves go crazy.

Their equalizer arrived, but Newcastle United

entered the last 15 minutes on top.

As long as we win our next home game, a point will suffice.

In my experience, wolves are never mugs

or whipping boys.

 

What do I know about football?

Trippier, our player with the greatest technical skill, was worthless.

The man of the match, Sky Wilson, lost every 50/50, and the guy who was excellent the previous season is still punching instead of catching, which has finally won us the game.

I was correct when I stated in a comment yesterday that Pope’s ability to catch rather than punch would determine our outcome.

I believe he should be dropped.

Bruno was a gentleman, and the players worked hard, but Pope cost us today.

Add in his theatrics in the corner for their first goal, and perhaps that’s enough to get him kicked off the team.

He needs to know that he is fighting for his position.
