1. Why you were looking forward to going to the ground (or not as the case may be):
 
I was looking forward to visiting Molineux because i knew it was a good ground that could easily host a premiership side. I had booked earlier in the week and as at the time i had only been to one away game (Birmingham), i knew this would be another fantastic place to visit. 

2. How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking:
 
Went up on the supporters coach so no need to worry about finding the ground, but when we did arrive the coach parked about 3 minutes away from the ground - and it was a mostly downhill walk to the supporters end, which was pretty easy to find.

3. What you did before the game pub/chippy.... home fans friendly?
 
Went straight from the coach to the ground, when we were walking down there was a mix of Argyle and Wolves fans but no trouble and seemed to get on pretty well.

4. What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of the ground?
 
While i was on the coach, and a few minutes away from the ground you get your first glimpse and my thoughts were wow! Walking towards the ground you see the away end which is quite unimpressive but if you see other sides you realise what a fantastic ground the Molineux really is. 

5. Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, toilets etc..
 
The game itself (Wolves v Argyle) was a pretty good game, and although i was only in row C in the away end i found the view pretty good. You're high enough up to see everything and the far side of the pitch etc, but like every other ground the further you are up the stand, the better your view will probably be. The atmosphere was better than Birmingham with the Wolves fans singing every now and again and at one point both sets of fans linked up! The stewards were pretty relaxed, and left us to do whatever we were doing and didn't interfere meaning a happy Green Army! The toilets which were a bit cramped, so if you're a bit claustrophobic i would advise trying to go toilet else before/after the match!

6. Comment on getting away from the ground after the game
 
Just like before the game, it was a short walk back to the coach afterwards, and again there was a mix of Wolves and Argyle fans walking up the same way - and there was no trouble.

7. Summary of overall thoughts of the day out
 
A very good ground, a pretty decent game and the stewards let us to do what we liked which was good. The fans seemed pretty friendly to me, and i would like to go to the Molineux again - maybe next season!
