    Pre-Season Friendlies

    Leicester City to visit Molineux on July 29th. There are two away friendlies though before that against Shrewsbury Town on Saturday, July 22nd (3pm), and at Peterborough United on Tuesday, July 25th (7.30pm).

    I will probably go to both the Shrewsbury away and Leicester City home friendly.

    I'm still trying to work out exactly when I will be back this year but that Leicester game looks good, might just have to make that one.

    The season proper starts in early August correct?

    I've been to the last two Academy friendlies, the 7-0 of AFC Wulfrunians and yesterday's 1-0 win at Telford. It was interesting to see Jordan Graham in the starting line-up yesterday. But he suffered a knock last week, so it couldn't have been that serious for him to play the first 45 minutes against Telford. He wasn't really in the game bar a couple of runs down our left and a few touches of the ball. It's more about gaining fitness at this stage of pre-season.

    From the sounds of the match with Shrewsbury today, we just need to hope that no one goes off with a serious injury

    Neves went off injured after a late challenge on him, the ref let a lot of challenges go. For Wolves, and especially those that haven't played in England yet, this was a bit of a wake up call type of friendly. A few challenges that were made in this friendly would easily have meant a yellow card being issued.

    People will look at the scoreline and think Wolves didn't turn up, but in truth Wolves did have four decent goalscoring chances. Dicko clean through in the first half, Zyro with a good chance to pull one back, Saiss with a good free-kick and also an header that he put over the bar.

    My first impressions on seeing Wolves play 90+ minutes under Nuno are that he tries to get his side to play possession football. It's all about trying to keep the ball with players not afraid to go back if an opposition player is closing them down. The only thing is, Wolves never really had that much time on the ball in the central areas.

    It will take time, it's quick and easy to judge, but for me, what really matters is the first league game on August 5th.
