Apparently he has struggled in games in the past when he's been rushed back from playing for his country.

1-0 Villa. Given the South American international fixtures fiasco, I struggle to see why this game couldn't be moved to Sunday as its not on live TV?

Agreed - clubs that have players involved with international teams in South America and the Caribbean seem to be unfairly treated especially when their last games are 48 or less before Saturday kick off times. When you factor in potential jet lag on return trips the two week break becomes a nonsense.

Martinez and Luiz in the Squad.

Bailey will be back some time in 2022.

Urgh Bailey being injured is really frustrating.

In terms of our internationals, I expect all of them to be back. We will assess whether they’re going to be available to play or not.
Martinez and Luiz are the latest ones to come back but they’ll be in the squad

The usual suspects are all missing the game through injury yet again.
I expect 1 of the 3 will play one more match for us before the end of the season!?

Without Leon, I expect a tight game with Villa edging it 1-0.

Wolves manager Lange:
We know we’re going to play against a strong opponent, maybe one of the best teams in the league because they’ve invested a lot to try to arrive in a different position. Top players, a top coach, a top club, so they’ll try to do a good season, but we’ll try to do a good game against them.

It's a good point. Wonder if we requested that to premier league but it got turned down. Can remember years back games v Wolves and West Brom always kicking off at 12pm on Sunday (was overeaction to the SHA riots by WMP) but been 3pm Sat for a while.

Moving it back 24 hours would make it a much better quality game anyway given key players are doing 15 hour flights to get back from both sides.

I'm glad it's on a Saturday at 3. Makes for a better atmosphere, and it'll be a rolocking good day out to boot.
