This will be interesting!

Wolves full of attacking intent against the best defence in the league, but, at the same time vulnerable at the back and City are now a team that are capable of scoring against anyone.

Two managers, completely different philosophies.

City will give up possession and play on the break, so I think we may see Damour starting with Gunnarsson & Ralls, with Tomlin on the bench. 4 3 3

Etheridge

Peltier  Morrison  Bamba  Richards

Damour  Gunnarsson  Ralls

Mendez-Laing  Zohore  Hoilett

City are going to concede eventually and this might be the day.  I have more faith in my original five match prediction that when I made it, so 2 - 1 City

Sorry, I'm being a Judas. I think wolves are just too strong. Their attack is strong and players like Reuben Neves have no right being in the championship and will make it incredibly difficult to get anything on the counter.

We'll lose, but this Wolves side is one of the strongest sides in the division in a long time. 2-1 loss.

I had a look on a Wolves forum for their predictions and there was a 6-0, a 5-0 and quite a few 4-1 as well as smaller wins for them. This was mostly based on Warnock being a dinosaur who sends teams out to break legs and our hoofball tactics being overrun by their scintillating football.
I really want their predictions rammed down their throats - or rammed elsewhere.

I think this common misconception works in his favour.

I am sure many of us were guilty of underestimating Neil Warnock's football until he actually landed at City. He works with what he has got and, very often, that has been very little. Just look at Rotherham and even us when he arrived.

The fact that he has now been given what he needs by VT makes this team a very different proposition.

Head over heart says 2-1 to Wolves. Any points out of this game will be a good result for me. Not really sure where the wolves fans are pulling 6-0 and 5-0 from but I suspect it begins with an A and ends in E. underestimate the opposition, and you may pay the price, whichever way this game won't define the season. As I said on a previous thread, I think this is a good time to play them.

I'd take a draw but hoping for a win. Wolves' fans thinking 5-0, they are having a laugh

Team picks itself at the moment, but what a strong bench as well..

No surprises there, same as the Villa match. Expect us to be on the back foot, if we keep it 0-0 at H/T and then anything can happen. Enough on the bench to make a difference in the 2nd.

I wouldn't be worried by a loss as long as it wasn't a hammering. If we get any points out of this it's a superb result and if we get three I think it really does highlight the incredible work that Warnock, Jepson and Blackwell have done since joining us.

I'm finding a prediction pretty difficult though...my heart says draw but my head says a narrow loss. I'd be ecstatic if proved wrong though
