I think VAR is absolutely shocking, and we seem to be bearing the brunt of it all the time at the moment.

Everyone has something to say on the matter, and the big thing I disagree with is the minimal offences.

Whether that is being offside by a toe-nail, or if the ball hits your hand in the box.

If the ball hits your hand that is not hand ball – hand ball is hand to ball.

When it is a blatant offence everyone can see it, but we do not need to be going to these fine margins.

It is killing the atmosphere and it is unnecessary.

We do not need to see goals like Pedro Neto’s, at both Liverpool and Manchester United cancelled out. They were chalked off for a whisker of offside for Jonny Castro Otto and a non-deliberate hand ball by Raul Jimenez.

It must have been devastating for young Pedro, but he will bounce back.

Hopefully VAR can be sorted for the players’ sake and for the fans.

One thing that has been highlighted in recent weeks is that we need more players.

Ruben Vinagre, Diogo Jota and Willy Boly are out, and I think we are getting down to the bare bones. I’m just keeping everything crossed that we do not get any more injuries.

We have done so well over the last 12 to 18 months with little injuries with such a small squad.

The manager is probably pulling his hair out thinking – he wants some players.

But patience is a virtue, and I think Wolves are probably waiting for the right player before they start dabbling in the market.

We head to Southampton without a win in five. I think the form itself has dipped a little bit but we are still playing some really good football.

The results will come and I hope the tide turns at Southampton.

The fans will relish a trip down to the seaside and in Danny Ings they have a striker in form.

It took him time to get going, but I think it is premature to talk about an England call-up at this point.

But he’s in a rich vein of form, and if he can keep that up then why not give him a chance?

I think he has to keep thinking about his bread and butter, which is doing well at Southampton.

Then if England comes along then great, he is a very talented player

Fingers crossed for 3 points today!
