What can I tell you? Well, it’s a 3 o’clock kick off so there will be the usual tiny pitter patter of stream requests. I’m being horribly short here, but aren’t there just about half a dozen of these sites doing all the games routinely every week and do search engines now do half days on Saturdays? It’s like someone constantly bumming cigarettes when you know they have money.
‘Wolves away weren’t ever going to be an easy game, we knew that. Mick’s had it all to do up here but he’s shown everyone they aren’t afraid to dig in and maybe that’s where we were lacking.
You go a goal up at a place like this and you can’t afford to sit back. Maybe our lot was guilty of underestimating them. But they showed resolve and we clearly didn’t match ’em in that department.
I thought our two up front done alright. I mean I didn’t know we’d signed Ade until just before the game so we haven’t had a chance to sort of discuss a plan. But Benny told ‘im what we wanted I think. The little man was always looking for chances, all he got was flags.We need to work on that.
I thought maybe we lacked a target man today, you know? I haven’t spoken to the chairman but I think he’s sold Crouchy. If that’s true, then maybe that’s what we was lacking.’
So to the game. The contest. The meat upon the bone then.
I’m no stat man but this one caught my eye. In the Top 10 Most Shots Without Scoring Table for the Barclay’s Premier League so far this season …Taarabt is top, Van der Vaart second, Defoe & O’Hara joint tenth. Just sayin’.
So far Wolves have drawn away at Villa and beaten Fulham 2-0 at Fulham. Fulham who were widely tipped for a resurgence under BMJ. We ought to win this. We need to draw a line under the previous two fiascos and this is a brilliant opportunity to achieve that.
