Doyle: We can Win

Saturday, October 30th, 2010

Kevin Doyle is interviewed on Absolute Radio’s Rock & Roll Football Show later today – I hope he’s right that the team can repeat last week’s performance but this time get something from the game: You just look at we’re playing the top team so no one expects us to get anything from them and, [...]

Wolves 1-1 West Ham: No wonder Van Damme wants to go back to Belgium

Sunday, October 17th, 2010

There’s no such thing as a ‘must win’ game at this stage of the season, but this one came as close as it can. It was also very much a ‘should have won’ game. In the first half Wolves played, on the whole, confidently and fluidly, were creating all the chances were only denied a [...]

Not a good day after all: Wolves 4 – 2 Notts County

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

It was a relief to see Wolves in the hat of the final 16 Carling Cup draw.  It could so easily could have been very different as a spirited County side impressed in a familiar under-par Cup showing by Wolves. County were ahead with seven minutes to play, when Berra was hauled down in the box.  [...]

How not to make a wall: Fulham 2 – 1 Wolves

Sunday, September 12th, 2010

For a while there it looked like it was going to be a good day, but the result fairly reflected the game, and as Fulham had two decent penalty shouts turned down, I won’t argue with the outcome, however disappointing. For the first 10 minutes, Fulham looked like there would walk the game, but in [...]

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 [...]

Doyle: sleep more, score more

Wednesday, February 17th, 2010

Kevin Doyle, Wolves’ stand out player of the season so far, reports on the Official Wolves site that he’s in the form of his life. I’m not going to argue with his claim that he has been playing well, that his all round play has improved, and I certainly hope he is right that his best years [...]

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 [...]

No News is ok News

Sunday, September 6th, 2009

It’s a bit of a no news week for Wolves with the top divisions taking an international break.  However a good crop of Wolves players are involved in international action around the globe, mainly for the home nations so I thought I’d take a few moments to cast my eye over the pedigree of this [...]
