Adam Hammill must get a game soon...has to get a game soon! Of those I mentioned on other threads this week, in terms of who i'd like to see tonight, all three of them startedi.e AH,AG & NM...and the bonus of Edwards nicking one.Quite literally from Vokes, at least that's how it looked!Hammill looks a class act on the ball, always looking to be positive and get forward. Gued was safe and sound, nothing dramatic...until that screamer that out-shone Hammills belter of a free-kick. Milijas was too much in search of a hollywood pass, memories of Paul Cooke, in that regard. That isn't to say he was wasteful, he wasn't. A shorter pass to MF would have sufficed at times but, to be fair, his long passing usually found the mark, only unplayable by the time it landed, at times. Millwall were pretty much spectators so the defence were just keeping warm, most of the game. Stearman still managed a few mis-directed passes, though.Doherty seemed sound enough. Was content to play square balls to the CH's most of the time. Which is fine and dandy as far as i'm concerned. George had the odd bull-charge upfield, again virtually no defensive duties to perform but no mistakes of note, either.Always good to see youngsters score and Spray took his goal well. Looked strong and lively in the time he had. The regular MF's who appeard were totally out-shone by the "reserves" on show. Kightly looked as out of it as he has been doing in the league, so far. Only seemed interested in scoring himself, it seemed.All-in-all Wolves display was sound at the back (with very little for them to do) and dynamic and adventurous when the MF got hold of it. That'll do for now, eyes are starting to go a bit west. MM cannot pretend his chosen ones pick themselves now, with Hammill and Gued. both justifiably in the frame for a start at Anfield. Milijas, although not his best game tonight, really is class on the ball, too...but we new that.

I only caught the sky text updates for last nights game but this seems to only endorse what you have stated above. Seems we have a number of much more talented and eager players om the fringes, but ThickMicks golden children will not be moved - I guarantee you all4, that the EXACT same team will be picked against pool on Saturday. And we will be murdered. If we are in the bottom 3 come Christmas and McMuppet does not bring in three defenders and atleast 1 striker and midfielder then the message from the club is clear...

I'd almost agree about the likely selection for Anfield, AdMant. With the exeption of George. I think Wardy will play LB,which probably means one MF place up for grabs. I don't think he'll start with two up-front but it wouldn't surprise me in the least if he starts with the rest of them that started against Q.P.R.If he does start with Jarvo and KH, though, it'll be with AH and Gued ready to come on.Id start 4-5-1 with both of them on from the start. Jarvo and Henry benched.

Nice report, A4D. It was a morale-boosting victory and it will keep the 'old lags' on their toes. I suspect that MM will not make wholesale changes for Saturday, except to add an extra midfielder. His choice will be interesting, given th eperformance of DE, AG and NM yesterday. Ward will replace GE at LB of course. What about Doherty for RB. When advocating the case for trying him out, I wrongly kept thinking of him as a LB. That's a pity because we're reasonable well provided for with RBs. Of course, we cannot get too carried away by the performance against a weak Championship side but it's very encouraging, nonethless.
