Liverpool 2 Wolves 0

If I could rub a magic lamp and make one wish for next season it would be for Gary O’Neil to have a squad he feels good about. Fosun haven’t afforded a manager that luxury since the early years of Nuno and that has to change. Computer says no…again Many of an old gold persuasion would just ask the genie to banish the video referee and given our rotten interactions with Stockley Park, I don’t blame them. That crunching Semedo tackle is one we’ve seen a number of times this season across the Premier League. Sometimes it’s a sending off, sometimes it’s not. And it’s that gross inconsistency that ..read more

If there’s one thing Jürgen has done well, it’s beat Wolves at Anfield in the Premier League. We pushed them hard at Molineux but ultimately lost out I make it five straight wins since we returned to the top flight, so what better way to finish than seeing off the whipping boys one final time? Unless… Can our lads drag themselves off the canvas and somehow rediscover some of that early season form and togetherness to spoil the party? Based on what I saw against City and Palace, unlikely. Too much back five tiki-taka and not nearly enough authority in either penalty area. Still, stranger things ..read more

From Turner to Taylor and Nuno to Bruno, if the Wolves have taught me one thing, then it’s that nothing lasts forever. And so it came to pass that the Wolves Blog has written its final chapter, in another inevitable ending that deserves a final farewell. Getting in the middle of things in 2014 My first-ever post was back in 2009, for a defeat to West Ham United in our opening fixture back in the Premier League under Mick. Full of verve and vigour, I poured over each syllable like I was holding the back page, in what felt like an act of duty to the handful of Wolves fans reading it – and my goo ..read more

As we head to Anfield hoping to spoil Jürgen’s farewell I thought the timing was right to announce that the Liverpool game is also going to be Wolves Blog’s last hurrah. With increasing pressure on my time outside of the site, I’m struggling to keep the wheels turning in what’s largely a voluntary solo endeavour and the end of season 15 seems like as good a time as any to call it a day. Outside of my own commitments, thriving social media, WhatsApp groups and all sorts of video and podcast content now exist that didn’t a decade and a half ago and I’m not sure the appetite for longer form opin ..read more

Wolves 1 Crystal Palace 3

When I look back over the season, Gary has got his tactics right more often that not. But in recent weeks I’ve been scratching my head a bit. João Gomes was one of few to emerge with credit For a start, I can’t get my head around this weird hybrid back three with full backs being used on the outside when Santi Bueno is sat on the bench. If this was making us more defensively secure or giving us added thrust moving forward I’d make my peace with it, but we’re conceding goals for fun and looking short in attack. Would it not be better to play with a specialist centre half? Or even go to a back f ..read more

Most will see this as little more than a nice kick about in the sunshine. After all, both teams should be content enough with what they’ve done over the 36 games to date and feel there’s cause for optimism heading into 24/25. Points mean prizes But according to this article, each position in the Premier League table could be worth as much as £3 million and with Wolves still able to finish as high as 9th or as low as 14th, that’s a potential £15m swing. So climb back off the sun loungers lads – I wanna win this. Palace The Eagles are unbeaten in their last 5, winning 4 of those matches. When yo ..read more

When you think about it, that was the logical outcome. Wolves are too weak defensively and way too cavalier in possession to live with a City team hyper focused on their ultimate objective. Too strong – back-to-back hat tricks in this fixture for Haaland Yes, the penalty that got the ball rolling was a touch contentious but Ait-Nouri’s lack of awareness gave the referee a decision to make. Even before that we’d allowed them to collect the ball in areas of the pitch you simply can’t allow this team that amount of time and space. For that, I think Gary has to examine the setup and consider wheth ..read more

If we get 4 points from the final three games, we’ll have a chance of finishing in the top half. That’s a big ask with Liverpool and in-form Palace on the horizon after this almost certain defeat. Nothing to lose – how high can we finish? We can still finish as low as 14th but with a six point buffer to Palace, you’d hope we might just see them off. Even if they beat us they’ve got Villa and Man Utd to navigate. Fulham, three points back, have more winnable games against Brentford and Luton but both of those are away and their last home game is against City. Brighton, two points back with a ga ..read more

Picking my Player of the Season

I thought I’d give myself a few minutes to actually think about who to award my precious Player of the Season vote. Like most people, I can immediately hone in on a couple of contenders, but do the underlying numbers support that choice or would data reveal I’m overlooking someone more deserving? What about the warriors that turn up week in, week out when others are sidelined by injury? Or the players that don’t take the headlines but bring qualities to the side that maximise the potential of others? Yeah, that’s gotta be worth a look. Minutes When considering the players who’ve done the most ..read more

That was reasonably comfortable. A bit twitchy at the end and before the breakthrough in the first half, but Wolves ultimately showed they had the superior quality. Good for a goal – Hwang has been deadly at Molineux this season The disappointment was not getting a third goal when Luton were being pulled all over the pitch after Toti doubled the lead. When those chances were being spurned amidst the showboating you suspected it might eventually offer the visitors a path back into the contest and that’s what happened. Still, the remainder of the game was managed out and after the run of results ..read more
