'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Wolves 1 Fulham 1

The honours were shared at Molineux this afternoon as Fulham rescued a point.

For the trip to Molineux, a game we`ve waited two weeks for, Mark Hughes made three changes t the starting eleven that had lost at Old Trafford with Simon Davies, Steve Sidwell and Eidur Gudjohnsen coming in.

Fulham started the half very well and could have gone ahead very early on but for a spectacular save from Wayne Hennessy from a Carlos Salcido effort.

Matters got a bit feisty with a melee breaking out after Richard Stearman carried out a poor tackle on Eidur Gudjohnsen. Fulham then wasted a decent chance to go ahead when a move involving Murphy and Sidwell saw our January signing lob the ball perfectly for Salcido to drive a cross over but Clint Dempsey could only turn his effort over the bar.

Halfway through the half Wolves, it has to be said against the run of lay, took the lead when Karl Henry put the ball into the danger area for Steven Fletcher to head past Mark Schwarzer.

The goal didn`t faze Fulham who continued to look the better team with further chances coming the way of Clint Dempsey and Simon Davies, unfortunately none were converted and we had it all to do in the second half.

Half Time - Wolves 1 Fulham 0

The second half continued how the first had ended with Fulham on top. The early stages of the half saw Demble have an effort blocked before a fine move involving Murphy, Davies and Gudjohnsen saw the keeper come to the rescue of the home side.

Craddock then did very well to block another effort from Dembele after the player had spun past the challenges of two home defenders. Gudjohnsen and Murphy then combined before Dempsey saw an effort go wide.

Hangeland was wrongly accused of committing a foul and when Mark Hughes first remonstrated and then kicked a water bottle found himself ordered to the stands for the remainder for the game.

Trying to rescue something from a game we had enjoyed large spells of domination in Hughes ordered the cavalry to be brought on with Kakuta, Zamora and Johnson entering the fray.

The move paid dividends when a piece of long ball football saw Zamora jostle to get the ball and with his second touch Johnson put Fulham level. With four minutes of stoppage time to be played, Kakuta almost snatched the game for Fulham with two chances, the first being saved by the keeper and the second going wide.

All square it finished and we can feel we should have had more from the game.

Overall disappointing result. We were clearly the better side. Should've gained all three points. Had Zamora started, I suspect we would have. What are we saving AJ and Bobby for. The season's almost over and this was one of the better chances for a win. Good game, lads. Another point, but two dropped.

I thought it had draw written all over it but looking back on chances we got away with it- Richard Stearman would also most likely have been sent off if his tackle had not come some early in the game- nature of the ref and all. We needed three points today and a lot of Wolves fans were fancying us to get the job done. I spent two weeks cringing at the thought we would go at you 4-4-2 and if we had you would have won, we would have played into the hands of a well organized side who would hit us on the break after mopping up any pressure, just like Newcastle and Everton in particular did. Thankfully we went 4-5-1/4-3-3 which is why we have a point we may make some difference although I am giving up. We can't hold a lead and watching from New York the stream froze so I missed your goal, but I was not surprised when it worked and you had scored. There was a lot of bull shine leading upto this game but I say well played and good luck next season. Ours will most likely be in the Championship- today, considering your away form was our chance and we did nowhere near enough to win so that, as they say is that.

Totally agree teddy.....hughes got it wrong and i think that is why he acted out and was sent to the stand. He knows he got it wrong. he should have started with aj and bobby up front at least. You are right what is the point of saving them.....for what. I hope he starts with bobby on wed at least!
Leonestar
it's tough... did he think he could sneak a win without bobby and aj and save them for bolton, the tougher game? interesting approach, as a win on saturday and loss on sunday would be more points than 2 draws... i guess we'll see what happens...
