Wolves 1 – 0 Birmingham: Everyone happy now?

Tuesday, December 14th, 2010

I’m way too late with this blog and celebrity engagements (ok, lunch) prevented me making this Sunday kick off, so I won’t try and analyse the play or pretend I know more than I do. I will say this, however: YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS I know we’re still 19th, but how much better does it feel to be [...]

Wolves 3 – 2 Sunderland: The well-trod path (with a bit of a twist)

Sunday, November 28th, 2010

This was a win both a long time in the making and thoroughly deserved. But with 13 minutes to go, things looked to be taking a familiar path. Wolves had failed to make dominance pay in the first half, and had shown some vulnerability at the back, but had come out second half and scored [...]

Wolves 2-1 Man City: Money doesn’t always bring you happiness

Sunday, October 31st, 2010

Well done to the Wolves for an excellent game and, better, three points in the bag. It may not move us up the table, but keeps up in touch, and there won’t be many further up the table happier than Wolves fans today. I only saw bits of the game on t’ net so won’t [...]

Glad Tidings: Wolves 2 – 1 Stoke

Monday, August 16th, 2010

Yes! Wolves secure their first opening day win in 12 years, and with sufficient style to bode well for the future. David Jones picked up where he left off at the end of last season, with some intelligent, creative play, a few chances and a brilliant volleyed freekick. Fletcher, also, in particular looked like a [...]

Take a Bow: West Ham 1-3 Wolves

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

Plenty of empty seats were in evidence at Upton Park to witness Wolves elevation to seven points off the drop zone. A late West Ham goal took a little of the shine off a great day for Wolves.  West Ham had their moments, but often looked very little like a team willing or able to [...]

Hallelujah: Burnley 1-2 Wolves

Monday, March 15th, 2010

Not only am I back on form after a bit of a sabatical, but we can start with a vital away win for Wolves. Burnley are likely to be cast as ‘fellow-strugglers’ with Wolves in many of the write-ups for this game, but the three point gap opened over 18th place here does set us [...]

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 2-1 Fulham

Sunday, September 20th, 2009

A good day for Wolves, despite them again doing their sportsmanlike best to help an indifferent Fulham side make a game of it towards the end. Pros: > 2 good goals, including Kevin Doyle’s first, and a win > A comeback for Ebanks-Blake and Kightly > A sound debut for Castillo > Fine performances from [...]

Wolves 0-0 Swindon (6-5 on penalties) LEAGUE CUP

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

Tradition usually requires that Wolves exit to lower league opposition in the 2nd round – I can only assume the fact that our elevated status means we didn’t have to play the first round explains these unexpected victory.  The team certainly did their best to uphold a fine tradition with a thoroughly uninspired League Cup performance but [...]

Wigan Athletic 0-1 Wolves

Tuesday, August 18th, 2009

A dominant if edgy performance (do they do it any other way) brings Wolverhampton Wanderers their first ever Premier League away win. Having gone a whole season five years ago without managing particular that feat, it’s extremely gratifying to get the result in their first trip away this season. Despite a squad of shreds and [...]
