Wolves recently beat Watford 2-0 at Molineux to get their first win of the 19/20 Premier League season.
Pedro Neto started his first Premier League match and assisted Matt Doherty for the first goal. Daryl Janmaat then accidentally headed the ball into his own net to secure Wolves’ win.
Some of the pack have shared their thoughts about the victory over on Twitter.

“Should hang their heads in shame!”
Nuno Espirito Santo was pleased with Wolves’ first win of the season so far. At the same time, he has made it clear that the players still need to raise their standards.
“Our fans saw a good game, and we now have to raise our standards and improve,” said Nuno via Express & Star. “We have to grow and improve when we are on the field, we don’t have time on the training ground.”
“We are recovering and playing, so you have to do other things to improve your performance. This is a new thing for a lot of the players.”
Wolves were better than Watford in the first half, but a concern is that the standards dropped again in the second.
Not only that, but Wolves once again had the fewer shots, possession percentage and amount of completed passes. This suggests that the players were again conservative and still nowhere near their best.
Yet a lot of fans don’t seem to care as they were full of praise for “King Nuno.”

Nuno is the best manager Wolves have had in over 20-years as he’s took the club to another level. Not only on the pitch with recruitment and philosophy, but also behind the scenes with Fosun (Sky Sports).
The few cries for his head were undoubtedly premature as Wolves aren’t in a position to panic. The Premier League table is too tight at the moment with everyone except Liverpool losing one week and winning the other.
Plus, Wolves are in a fantastic position to go on a European tour beyond the group stages of the Europa League.
The pack need to create more chances and take more shots on the pitch, but it’s clear that the Molineux faithful are still head over heels in love with Nuno. And it’ll take a lot more than a few uninspiring performances for their trust and devotion to wither.
