    We all know it's spelt Molineux, and pronounced 'Molinew'. Someone needs to have a quiet word with Nuno. Just seen his post-match interview on Midlands Today, and he pronounced it 'Molino'... just as he does on the pre-match video which is shown at the same time as the light show. It ay roit! 'Molinew' please!

    Maybe just maybe it’s because of his accent and English not being his first language?

    Probably. But our head coach needs to pronounce the name like we do. Not difficult, he speaks good English.

    Maybe we could get Nuno to critique your Portuguese?

    I quite like the way he pronounces it. Makes the man even more endearing and special for me. But then, he can do absolutely no wrong in my eyes.

    One of these games, I’m not going to be able to contain myself. I’m just going to drop my “We are Wolves” flag, run to him, and give him a big hug.

    Well, for the same reason it would be wrong to pronounce it 'Molinukes' just because it has an 'x' at the end. You pronounce it 'Molinew' I pronounce 'Molinew' and the 30,000 + people who were at the ground last night pronounce it 'Molinew'. Every Wolves supporter that's ever been has pronounced it 'Molinew'. Our match programme was once jokily named 'Molinews' for the same reason. I think our head coach may simply not know how it's pronounced, why should he? That's why I am suggesting someone at the club ought to tell him.

    Love the the way he says it especially on the video while the light show is on "Molino it's time" Makes the hairs on my neck stand up.

    Leave the man exactly as he is perfection.

    So you suggest that someone should correct his English and that's not having a go at him --or was the purpose of the post to prove that you know how to be ironic --bit of a self gratification there .

    Perhaps because of his accent he can't pronounce it as it's read, I can't see an issue.

    Of course you can’t, no one can, and mainly because there isn’t one.

    Interesting reactions. People were queuing up to criticise Lambert's English... but then we played **** football under Lambert. I point out that Nuno, who, I repeat, speaks excellent English, is getting the name of our ground slightly wrong on a consistent basis... and it's how dare you point that out?! But then we are playing great football under Nuno.

    His English doesn't need correcting, But that's not how the name of the ground is pronounced.

    Wouldn't be difficult -- I don't know any. How is that relevant? We are not living in Portugal.

    In defence of big saft kid.... 'Molineux' is not English.... so he is in no way criticising his English....

    First can we stop every single British person calling it 'The' Molineux, then we can start on how the foreigns pronounce it.
