Do you Remember the First Time?

Wednesday, August 18th, 2010

Mine was 22nd March 2003.  Wolves 6-0 Gillingham. Wolves have not won better since, although there was that interesting 6-0 loss to Southampton (match report).  Had the game been different, perhaps I wouldn’t be here writing this today, but I’ve a sneaking suspicion I would. On my first visit to Molineux I was sitting in [...]

The Talented Mr Craddock

Tuesday, August 17th, 2010

Having had a bit of a whinge yesterday about a certain Mr. Keogh, I wanted to redress the balance and prove that I’m not a whining southern Wolfie. When I look at the Wolves squad looking for someone who deserves a bit of praise, Jody Craddock’s is the first name to spring to mind.  He’s [...]

Keogh: should he stay or should he go?

Monday, August 16th, 2010

Andy Keogh cut a sorry figure as the substitute himself was substituted off against Stoke. On Saturday, Keogh came on for Fletcher only to be pulled off again with a few minutes left. Swapping a defender for a forward at a critical time seems fair, but this will have done nothing for Keogh’s confidence – [...]

England out, Wolves back. Bothered?

Monday, June 28th, 2010

As Wolves players old and new turn out for the first day of pre-season training today, England’s last great hope of a World Cup win (we’re told) trail home after an abject world cup.  Thankfully, and somewhat surprisingly, I feel much more positive about the former than I do negative about the latter. Never in [...]

On the Run

Wednesday, May 19th, 2010

…The Heroes Run. Last Sunday I joined a thousand or other similarly fancy dressed young (and slightly less young) people to take part in the annual Heroes Run, an annual trot along Hove seafront in aid of local charity passingiton. Readers with exceptionally good memories may remember that I attended last year’s event, but I’m [...]

Mascotspotting: Fulham – Billy the Badger

Friday, April 16th, 2010

There’s nothing I like more than while researching my ‘Mascotspotting’ spot, than to run across the headline ‘Club Mascot Controversy’ in Wikipedia. Billy, it seems, has almost as chequered a past as my own, probably to make up for his averageness in every other way. Fulham are a team who seem to have struggled with [...]

Dull: Wolves 0-0 Stoke

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

Very little to report as Wolves’ home goal drought continues. Stoke spurned a couple of chances, Wolves got near the penalty area on a few occasions.  If the game is remembered for anything, which seems rather unlikely, it will be for Rory Delap’s 25 long throws rebounded from the Wolves penalty box to the accompaniment of chants [...]

Mascotspotting: Stoke City – Pottermus & Pottermiss

Thursday, April 8th, 2010

In the first of my soon-to-be-regular profiles of the inferior mascots of our opponents, let me introduce Stoke City’s Odd Couple. Names: Pottermus and Pottermiss DoB: Him: 1997, Her: 2002 Pun Value: 8.5 Charm: 5 Machismo: 2 Weirdness factor: 6 (yeah, they’re weird, but I sense there are further depths to plumb) Overall mascotspotter rating: [...]

What’s the point of the Billy Wright Stand?

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

Seriously, I’d be grateful if someone would explain this to me. With no game until Sunday, I have time to ponder the higher things in life.  That done, I’ve also got a some time to examine a little further the ‘matchday experience’ at Molineux.  I’ve been in all the stands at Molineux at one time [...]

Take a Bow: West Ham 1-3 Wolves

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

Plenty of empty seats were in evidence at Upton Park to witness Wolves elevation to seven points off the drop zone. A late West Ham goal took a little of the shine off a great day for Wolves.  West Ham had their moments, but often looked very little like a team willing or able to [...]
