Man City 4-3 Wolves: Deserving all of the plaudits and none of the points

Sunday, January 16th, 2011

I’m a firm believer that you get the results you deserve. Today we have exactly that – lots of plaudits and no points. Wolves played an excellent game and, have they capitalised more on (say it softly) first half domination at the City of Manchester Stadium, could have come away with more. When Milijas scrambled [...]

Nearly, but not quite, good enough to draw with Blackpool

Sunday, November 21st, 2010

Another enormously frustrating game. Perhaps I should just start copying and pasting that from week to week. The scenario was familiar enough… Within the first two minutes we were a goal down (admittedly to a fantastic strike from Varney) and chasing the game. Early substitutions made a difference, but we conceded another and despite sustained [...]

Wolves 0-2 Chelsea: Now let’s play like that in games we might win

Sunday, October 24th, 2010

We’re no further up the table, but a little pride and confidence has been restored after recent results. Watching the Wolves today I was delighted not to have chosen to watch the overpaid mercenaries in blue every week, for all the wins I’d get to see. It may have ended as a routine win for [...]

As if things weren’t bad enough already: Chelsea v Wolves Preview

Saturday, October 23rd, 2010

Wolves’s wafer thin midfield options will the biggest concern tomorrow. Actually, the fact we’re playing Chelsea (against whom we have 4 PL losses, 16 goals shipped) is probably the biggest concern, but the midfield is still a worry. Lets look at the absentees: With Henry suspended, Mancienne ineligible to play against his parent club and [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
