My post about Leicester struggling without Ndidi didn't age well.

No chance of this score line in front of fans.

Why not? It's another set of matchday supporters that's become more of an audience rather than a crowd in recent years.

Iíve been to the Etihad a few times, but after last seasons game, I can safely say there isnít a more sanitised ground in the league.

The atmosphere today would have been the same.

Being pragmatic I would wager that Wolves will finish above us and 3 games without a point for West Ham can only benefit us so I'm donning my flares, expecting a power cut and backing the throwbacks tonight.

Iíve been to Maine Road and the Etihad, Iíve also been in a ground with 83 people and a stadium with 92k, the no fans is taking its toll on goals scored and results - this stage of the season there arenít any ďmake or break ď games so hence the goals / results.

Btw what an absurd statement ( I get the attempt at humour) to suggest 42k is the same as zero fans.

We surely have to be looking above this and having a more ambitious agenda?

You forgot the bloody mullet! See what you've done, West Ham 1 up, Wolves without a shot on target.

Wolves have been shit so far, West Ham actually look quite good.  Traore seems to have reverted to being a useless, headless chicken.

Yes Wolves look lethargic and uninterested and Antonio is ruining their back four.

Foul took place in West Ham's half, free kick was taken in Wolves' half, while the ball was still running, apart from that nothing wrong with the goal.

They look shit tonight,  Traore looks like a bodybuilder who's been given a game 'cos he's a member of the same gym as the manager.

But itís spurs so Iíll take it.

It'll be us at some point though, I guarantee it. This ridiculous rule obviously benefits the Sky clubs as the more you defend, the more the ball will knock around your box, and the more that happens the greater the chance is of ricocheting onto an arm. I guarantee we'll get some shit handball like this against us this season.

So this is the very reason that we should go out and attack the opposition and force them into their own penalty area.  If this is done consistently then inevitably the ball will strike an opponents arm and a penalty awarded.  Also whilst we are attacking their penalty area they cannot be attacking ours and no penalty can be awarded against us.  Smith should get this mindset into the players
