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 [...]

Punt-Bounce-Bounce-Peep: Wolves 1:1 Newcastle (Referee: 0)

Sunday, August 29th, 2010

This was less a game of two halves, more a game of one referee.  Without wishing to distract from the inadequacies of Wolves performance today, this game was stifled by a referee who lost control within the first ten minutes.  Wolves were barely able to string three passes together all game, and the ref did [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Wolves 1-1 Hull

Saturday, August 29th, 2009

I’ve taken a week out from the football and from my hectic schedule this week to do some charitable work amongst the needy.  Here you can see me showing young Monty Magpie (somewhat depressed of late, despite a few lucky wins) what all this internet business is about.  I firmly believe in education so I [...]

Wolves vs. Cardiff (2:2)

Sunday, February 22nd, 2009

I can’t help feeling that Wolves should have won.  Wolves faded slightly after a first half of squandered opportunities but at leaset I can enjoy the long drive to Molineux next week with a fair degree of hope for the rest of the season.  Whatever the result, after recent games, and Burnley last week in [...]

Wolves vs. Sheffield United (1:1)

Friday, December 26th, 2008

I was all dressed up in my festive finery, but, frankly, the football or the atmosphere in a sold out (and freezing cold) Molineux didn’t meet my expectations.  The fact that Hennessey won Man of the Match tells you all you ne4ed to know about the game, after he pulled off a string of fine [...]

Wolves vs. Accrington Stanley (1-1 – 3-2 after extra time) LEAGUE CUP

Tuesday, August 12th, 2008

Wolfie is so embarrassed by this result that he briefly passed out and has now started talking about himself in the third person.  All credit to Accrington Stanley, but Wolves must do much, much better than this at the weekend.
