Circus of Horrors: Wolves 0-2 Wigan

Saturday, January 16th, 2010

As the posters advertising ‘Circus of Horrors’ (Civic Hall, 30 Jan) mocked us on the way out of Wolverhampton, it wasn’t hard to see where the inspiration for this particular show might have come from. The game started scrappily, with Wigan ultimately having the best of the first half. Hahnemann pulled off a couple of [...]

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 [...]

Boo (joke, just about): Wolves 0-1 Portsmouth

Saturday, October 3rd, 2009

It’s hard to know what to say. I certainly can’t keep commending Wolves on their endeavour and rail at the fates who denied them their victory. Granted, having conceded three penalties in the previous two games, Wolves were denied a couple of very good shouts of their own- first for a clear handball from a [...]

Gasp: Sunderland 5-2 Wolves

Tuesday, September 29th, 2009

I’m going to stop, after today, harking back to the bad only days of 2003-04, but this five goals conceeded statistic appears, at first glance, to be frighteningly familiar. Pleasingly and frustratingly, however, scratch the surface and this seems to be another of those hard luck stories for Wolves. Much endeavour and desire , a [...]

Manchester City 1-0 Wolves

Saturday, August 22nd, 2009

Wolves more than rode their luck at times, but can leave Manchester, despite the defeat, with their heads held high. City went one up after 15 minutes and dominated the first half. Wolves should have been happy to go in only one goal down at the break, despite only being denied a goal by a [...]

Wolves 0 – 2 West Ham

Saturday, August 15th, 2009

Wolves came out the starting gate with a bang but ended on a whimper. When the starting line up was announced I will admit to letting a small tear fall from my eye. Stephen Ward starting? Neither should Jody Craddock, much as I love him, should not be a premier league starter. Against a better [...]

Coventry vs. Wolves (2:1)

Saturday, February 7th, 2009

A very bad day all round, topped off by Ebanks-Blake’s uncharacteristic penalty miss (saved) in the dying seconds of injury time.  My wish for the transfer window was an experienced, solid defender, so I was very pleased by the signing of Christophe Berra.  The fact that his debut was characterised by an all round embarrassing [...]

Reading vs. Wolves (1:0)

Wednesday, January 28th, 2009

Wolves bad run continues although at least the performance, with a few notable exceptions, deserved some praise.  Wolves have had good luck to thank for a number of victories this season, and perhaps it’s only fair that we should now accept the roundabouts as well as the swings. Neill Collins will be making the headlines [...]

Norwich vs. Wolves (5-2)

Tuesday, October 21st, 2008

Watching Norwich at Molineux last season, I remember thinking I wouldn’t see many worse teams in the Championship.  Today, Wolves at least matched that woeful performance.  Defensively a shambles, and not really much better anywhere else on the field, this is one best assigned to history, and fast.  I was there, but got a little [...]

Rotherham vs. Wolves (0-0 – Wolves lose 4-3 on penalties) LEAGUE CUP

Tuesday, August 26th, 2008

As Wolves take their traditional 4th round exit to lower league opposition, a timely reminder perhaps not to get carried away.  This was in large parts a second string team, but we deserved no better than this result.
