1. Why you were looking forward to going to the ground?

Have wanted to go to Molineux for some time - no idea why - just one of those clubs!

2. How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?

Very easy to find the ground from the railway station that we used (train from Manchester direct to Wolverhampton)

3. What you did before the game pub/chippy.... home fans friendly?

I did some research on pubs having been slightly put off by some reviews of those in town centre. As I like real ale I wanted to find a decent fan friendly boozer. I chose the Great Western on Corn Hill which is very very close to the station.

Out of the Railway station main entrance , 
turn immediately right to find the underpass going underneath the station. At the end of the underpass, turn right down a path and keep going until you hit the Great Western.

Lovely pub, lovely beer, good pub grub (especially the pork rolls!). Very efficient bar staff and kitchen staff. Pub was packed with Wolves fans, but didn't seem overpacked. Very friendly atmosphere. I don't wear colours to away games so do not know what it would be like if you did. Although some of the reviews of pub I read suggested away fans were welcome. A really good pub which I'm looking forwards to visiting again.

4. What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of the ground?

Away end or side as it actually is was the bottom tier of Steve Bull stand. All very functional and tidy

5. Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, toilets etc..

Forget about the game please! Wolves fans were in full voice...good atmosphere. No problems with stewards whatsoever which is a nice change from some grounds (Sunderland are disappointingly bad).
Beer was in cans or bottles, which was fine. Bitter was Banks in cans.
Bar staff were good and friendly.

6. Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:

Easy to get away from ground - station was inevitably packed to get back to Manchester. Next time I may go into centre for a meal to see a bit more of what Wolverhampton is like.

7. Summary of overall thoughts of the day out: 

Good day out (apart from the performance and result from a City perspective
