Wolves decisively beat Newcastle United 4-0 today in the first semi-finals of the Premier League Asia Trophy in China.
An own goal from Newcastle youngster Thomas David Allan concluded Wolves’ strong performance.
Morgan Gibbs-White and Diogo Jota struck the back of the net for Wolves in the first half making the occasion a one-sided contest.
And some of the pack has reacted on Twitter to their players’ professional and decisive victory.
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.
Let’s carry the momentum on

One fan said it was a great workout with clinical finishing, meanwhile another praised the performance of Gibbs-White alone.
Great workout lads. Clinical finishing. Good to see some of the young lads get a runout.

Rather than the team’s showing, most fans were in awe of the Wolves’ home shirt sponsored by Fosun instead of ManBetX.
Can you buy the shirts with the fosun sponsor? Would love one of those.

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.
Fair play Wolves. you’ve shown everyone how a football club should be, unlike our mess.
Good luck in the season
