    Matt Murray sounded fine on the Mic. Maybe it’s the person rather than the system?

    The main problem is the PA system, it isn't set up for speach just for music. Not sure about the other stands but in the North Bank you cant hear a word they are saying, the club need to sort it out sooner rather than later. I would like to see Porky on the PA, he was great at the speedway and really got the crowd going, he did it a couple of times at Wolves many years ago and did a good job.

    Pretty sure he was paid to be there on Saturdays? Not sure why anyone would think he did it for free?

    The girl doing the announcements at the weekend was dire. I don't go to every game but I'm told she's been there all season, how have they given her this long? The guy doing the teams and subs seemed fine, even if he did sound like shouty man!

    Normally I'm in the billy wright upper and always wonder what all the fuss is about the PA as it usually sounds fine there, I was in the North bank on Sunday and now understand the issue, generally Far too loud and effectively overloading the Amp/speakers causing distortion. both the girl and Mat Murray were OK in parts then the volume would go up a bit and get distortion, seemed the levels from the mics seemed to vary quite a bit, maybe its just how close they are being held, maybe ts down to wireless signal levels ?

    She's been hired for the season. Can't help but think this has some bearing on Jason leaving.

    All the best to Jason. Hes a good Wolves lad, sorted me out a few times when doing a few charity things and shame another piece of Wolves past has moved on.

    When I said pretty sure, I meant 100% sure. Think shouty man may have been telling a few porkies. He was paid. Don't think it's fair to reveal my source but they would definitely know let's just put it like that.

    There was a competition, with the two gamers that we signed. It's not something she chooses to say, I'm sure, but something she's obligated to mention by the club.

    She doesn't write her own script, she'll be obliged to mention numerous things.

    I get that but frankly l doubt if very many people at matches at Molineux give a flying **** about it. Boring turgid ****

    Wasn't at the game, but was watching. The pre match announcing was a bit much in my opinion. I think with the new matchday experience it may serve Wolves well to reign it in a bit, after all less is more. What with the fireworks, the light show, the new music, it all seems too contrived. Too much of a departure from a traditional day out at the football, we're a traditional club we should be traditional in our matchday experience. This new girl isn't traditional enough for me, shouty man is. I think the announcer should be a middle-aged local man with a local accent, just like many of the fans. Outdated hair and bad teeth would be a bonus too.

    Thought she was awful for the players walking out of the tunnel and general ‘hype’ moments. Really can’t see why we got rid of the other chap.

    Can’t blame her for failing to make the esports bit exciting. Believe me I’ve lost many an hour playing Football Manager in my youth, but I have zero interest in watching someone else play a computer game. As the guy next to me said at the time “the games gone”.

    If Status Quo and Neil Diamond at the end of the match were the new announcers idea then come back Jason!

    For all the moaning about this, everyone seems to enjoy it at the end of a win.
    It's not like the music is being played to an empty ground.

    I find the new in-match announcer guy far more palatable than "Shouty Man". Still not swayed by Gabby, isn't a local and it feels like it's just a job to her, another step on the media ladder. If it was Suzi Perry or Jacqui Oatley, I'd be more inclined to give them a pass on it.

    I agree WV9 - the new in-match guy sounds like a local lad and genuinely sounded excited when we scored. Nice to have someone who can announce players names correctly for a change as well.

    I know what you mean about Gabby though. I just can't take to her. I've been to the last two games and she seems quite robotic and like she's trying to present a dodgy sports TV show rather than speak to the crowd.

    The new goal announcer is good, voice has a bit of oomph about it. Sounds like a pro, must have drafted him in from somewhere.

    Typical of this place, years of moaning about 'shouty man' and two weeks after he goes people want him back!

    I can't be bothered to scroll back but I think she was well received when she started. I do think she needs to slow down a bit and speak more clearly. She's OK making announcements for me, but interviewing not very clear.

    Its so muffled in NB Upper it doesnt matter who the announcer is you can't make anything out... may as well be Mr Bean.

    She does screech... kinda goes through me a bit.

    Also about NB Upper.... any chance of getting the TV inside working again? Pretty much all of them are either off or pink! Been like it for couple months... bit annoying when watching the early game while waiting for kick off.

    I’m aware that they are played but don’t remember them being played instantly on the final whistle (as they were last night) before. There’s usually a few words, Hi ho silver lightning and then these two ‘nothing to do with Wolves’ classics.
