Wolves v Blackpool Preview: Jarvis in positive mood shocker, lineup predictions and more

Saturday, February 26th, 2011

Wolves come into this game fresh from the disappointment of completely arsing it up against bitter foes W*** B***. In truth, a point was a decent result, but the manner of losing all three points, with ANOTHER last gasp goal for the opposition, still rankles today. Luckily, however, the team should be slightly quicker to [...]

Liverpool vs Wolves: Injury news (they’re lots of them) and predictions

Tuesday, December 28th, 2010

For Wolves, Liverpool have regularly been a team against which it ‘might have been’. We need more than that now. Sunday’s performance against Wigan was a significant low in a pretty dismal season and morale is scraping along the floor. It’s up to Mick to get the team to pick themselves up and keep fighting. [...]

Wolves vs Wigan Athletic Preview: A Crucial Christmas Clash

Saturday, December 25th, 2010

This fixture last year was one of the most miserable I’ve had the displeasure to witness. An abject performance was crowned by a completely unnecessary penalty and sending off for Stearman. This season’s reverse fixture showed little improvement, with another red card, this time for Henry’s much talked about – and rightly criticised foul – [...]

Wolves v Arsenal Preview: The Barbarian Hoardes are Coming

Monday, November 8th, 2010

Hopefully Mr Wenger will be reassured ahead of his visit to Molineux that the naughty Wolves players have been very well behaved in recent weeks.  In fact, with Arsenal sitting at the bottom of the disciplinary league, and with Koscielny picking up as many red cards to date as the delightful Mr Cattermole (official Premier [...]

Man Utd v Wolves Preview: With a Heart Full of Hope (and soon to be disappointed?)

Friday, November 5th, 2010

Having dispatched one Manchester team last weekend, what chance of another upset? United are a far better team than City, and we’ll be away from home, but after a bit of a revival in the last couple of weeks, isn’t it great to be able to go into a game like this with a bit [...]

Wolves v Man City: More of the same but with goals on, please

Saturday, October 30th, 2010

Clearly Kevin Doyle is in positive mood ahead of this afternoon’s clash with cash-swilling billionaires, Manchester City.  Strangely, I am too. Last week’s performance against very-rich-and-successful Chelsea is enough to convince me that we can get something at home off even-richer-but-not-nearly-as-reliable City.  The overall quality against Man U reserves was not as good, with Jones [...]

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 [...]

Looking forward to…Tottenham v Wolves

Saturday, September 18th, 2010

Surely all the signs are good.  We got two great results against Spurs last season, and they’re hardly coming into this game on a wave of success: A great first half lead against Werder Bremen in the Champions League let slip in the second; a draw with They Who Must Not Be Named, and they [...]

Stoke vs. Wolves. Is it that time already?

Friday, August 13th, 2010

Wer…humpf…wrrr?  Wendy promised to wake me half way through the off-season, but here we are, and it all starts again tomorrow and I’ve slept through all that excitement. Wolves have had an impressive preseason – they knew their targets, strengthened early, and got on with preparing for McCarthy’s and their first second season in the [...]

Fulham: Expecting a great day

Friday, April 16th, 2010

Everything’s looking pretty nice for Wolves. Despite last minute heartbreak at Arsenal and 90 minutes of nothing against Stoke, we’re still sitting in 14th place with the number of remaining games counting down rapidly. The sun is shining, and there’s likely to be a massive Wolves contingent present at Fulham hoping to see their team [...]
