1. Why you were looking
forward to going to the ground (or not as the case
I had never been to Molineux before and it
definitely looks one of the better grounds in the
2. How easy was your journey/finding the
Went by train, direct journey and walkable from
the train station, perfect.
3. What you did before the game pub/chippy....
home fans friendly?
Spent a couple of hours in the Walkabout pub – as
others have noted this is literally the only pub
available to away fans pre-match. Can’t say that
there was a particularly friendly or unfriendly
atmosphere around the town but I get the
impression if we were a visiting West Midlands
club this situation could have been a lot
4. What you thought on seeing the ground, first
impressions of away end then other sides of the
Very impressive, but also very confusing in terms
of trying to find the entrance – we were sat in
the lower tier of the Steve Bull stand to which
entrance seemed to be accessed on two sides.
Stewards very helpful though so not too much of a
delay getting in. However I have never seen so
many police at a ground outside of a derby setting
– spoke to a couple of officers beforehand
expressing my surprise, to be told that “I think
we’re more worried about them than you.” There had
apparently been crowd trouble recently and with a
derby against Walsall the following week, the
police were on their toes. Not intimidating as
such but set a tone.
5. Comment on the game itself, atmosphere,
stewards, pies, facilities etc..
Absolutely staggered we didn’t get anything from
the game – Wolves managed to get themselves in
front through an absolute fluke of a cross,
followed by some poor defending which allowed
Kevin Doyle to head home just before half time.
What followed in the second half was some great
Swindon play and dominance on occasion which paid
dividends on the 82nd minute to give us some hope
when Dany N’Guessan pulled one back. However it
was short lived, as Wolves sealed it at the death,
only for an even later consolation with a stunning
strike from Ryan Mason for Swindon fully 30 yards
out leaving the travelling faithful scratching our
heads as to how we hadn’t at least got a point.
6. Comment on getting away from the ground after
Pubs seemed to be friendly enough to visiting fans
after the game and had time for a couple before
getting a train back with no problems
7. Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:
Great stadium, fantastic atmosphere from the home
fans, very good game of football – gutted we got
nothing from the game, and would’ve been a better
day out in some ways if the centre of
Wolverhampton didn’t seem to go on lockdown when a
match is on. Would definitely return however.
