On life at the (bottom of the) top

Monday, November 9th, 2009

After Saturday’s defeat to Arsenal, Wolves find themselves in the bottom three for the first time in a while.  A good time, if not the most optimistic, to consider the very different experience of supporting your team in the Premier League to the Championship. It’s never easy supporting Wolves (although I’m sure many a Luton Town supporter [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

On the price of success

Friday, October 30th, 2009

Many fans are likely to be getting justifiably aerated about tickets for the upcoming match at Stamford Bridge, costing £47 or £44 (assuming you can visit the ticket office in person and pay cash, else add an extra £1.25 to that).  This is too high, although not massively above the £40 Wolves choose the charge [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Derby vs. Wolves (2:3)

Monday, April 13th, 2009

Congratulations to Mr. Keogh, the hero of the hour, popping up with two crucial goals in one game after only three in the rest of the season.  Just reward for an impressive workrate, and we can only hope a sign of greater confidence (and, let’s face it, skill) in front of goal.  An overall poor [...]

Nottingham Forest vs. Wolves (0:1)

Saturday, March 21st, 2009

A good win, especially considering the further slips from Reading and Brum, infront of over 5000 away supporters (there seems to be something in the air – is it all the winning?).  The match was uninspiring, but I’ll take a win in a dire encounter above a polished but unluckly draw at this stage in [...]
