Some of the pack reacts to Wolves win over Newcastle United

Wolves’ biggest detractors will argue that the Premier League Asia Trophy is just a commercial exploit without any pedigree, but Nuno Espirito Santo’s team approached the tournament with the right attitude.

Their dominance over Newcastle suggested that they’re more than just fit and ready for the Europa League qualifiers on July 25.

The semi-final thrashing in China was also a good opportunity for the pack to see some of the upcoming talent such as the insanely quick Niall Ennis.

One fan said it was a great workout with clinical finishing, meanwhile another praised the performance of Gibbs-White alone.

 

Rather than the team’s showing, most fans were in awe of the Wolves’ home shirt sponsored by Fosun instead of ManBetX.

But it wasn’t just Wolves fans that responded to the vicious battering in China.

A Newcastle United fan congratulated Wolves for knowing how to run a club, whereas another just wallowed in the self-pity of having Mike Ashley as an owner.

Wolves will face Manchester City in the Premier League Asia Trophy final on July 20 at 13:30 kick-off time.
