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 [...]

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 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 [...]

England out, Wolves back. Bothered?

Monday, June 28th, 2010

As Wolves players old and new turn out for the first day of pre-season training today, England’s last great hope of a World Cup win (we’re told) trail home after an abject world cup.  Thankfully, and somewhat surprisingly, I feel much more positive about the former than I do negative about the latter. Never in [...]

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 [...]

To Spend or Not to Spend

Sunday, January 10th, 2010

That is the question. Wolves spent mainly conservatively (by Premier League standards) in the summer, sticking to a tight (by Premier League standards) wage structure. As things stand today we are out of the relegation zone, but only just. So the question is, to spend big in an attempt to ensure survival or to hope [...]

On the Life of a Wanderer

Sunday, November 15th, 2009

What’s it like supporting Wolves?  Sometimes a picture is all you need.  Thanks to the folks at Flume Gorge, NH for so neatly summing it up.

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 [...]

Darn: Everton 1-1 Wolves

Saturday, October 17th, 2009

How disappointing it is to have been right. (about the result, at least, if nothing else). On any other occasion a fine result, having so nearly taken all three points it was a blow to concede with only two minutes to go. Still, let us be content with a point and an assurance that Wolves [...]

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 [...]
