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 [...]

Point’s the Point: Fulham 0-0 Wolves

Sunday, April 18th, 2010

Another solid defensive display against an uninspired Fulham side. A large and loud Wolves contingent had filled the away end and taken over much of the ‘neutral’ Putney End of the ground, but in truth there was little in the game to get the pulse racing. But on a beautiful sunny day in south west [...]

Proving we can win: Wolves 2-1 Bolton

Sunday, December 6th, 2009

It wouldn’t be a Wolves win without a nervy finish but, that aside, finally a result that matched the performance and vice versa. ‘Stealth Craddock’ managed to thump in a goal in the third minute from what looked like a suspisciously off side position, but no one at the club was about to spurn that [...]

One of them days: Wolves 1-4 Arsenal

Saturday, November 7th, 2009

Disappointingly, I have been proven right in my audacious prediction of an Arsenal victory. Wolves started so promisingly and really took the game to Arsenal in the first 20 minutes, but in truth didn’t threaten the Arsenal goal seriously despite looking the better team. However after an unlucky own goal from Zubar, there was only [...]

Fair Point: Stoke 2-2 Wolves

Sunday, November 1st, 2009

It’s beginning to look like the Hoddle days – all these draws.  Of course nothing could be further from the truth, because Hoddle was bumbling around with an over-priced, over-paid team in the Championship, and McCarthy has assembled a lean Premiership outfit, albeit one still nervously close to the drop zone, with far less resources that [...]

Mustn’t grumble: Wolves 1-1 Aston Villa

Saturday, October 24th, 2009

A decent result (and another correct prediction by me, I must modestly point out). A somewhat below par Villa side were matched by a solid if unspectacular Wolves. The game started with a bang, with Villa having a decent chance and Doyle being incorrectly denied a penalty in the first three minutes, but rapidly fizzled [...]

Darn: Everton 1-1 Wolves

Saturday, October 17th, 2009

How disappointing it is to have been right. (about the result, at least, if nothing else). On any other occasion a fine result, having so nearly taken all three points it was a blow to concede with only two minutes to go. Still, let us be content with a point and an assurance that Wolves [...]

On the dilemma of whether to complain or look at Jody Craddock topless for two months

Tuesday, January 1st, 2008

Happy Christmas etc. A new year, everything else pretty similar to before (well, the football continues to be low class, anyway). I’ve been away for a while so have a lot to tell you. So, ok, first of all, as you can see, I’ve been getting into the Christmas spirit and branching out in choice [...]
