Wolves 3 Port Vale 0 - match report and pictures

Wolves went top of League One as they made it a magnificent seven wins in a row against Port Vale – and they owed it to their French connection.

Bakary Sako (51) capped his first call-up by Mali yesterday with his ninth goal of the season before fellow Frenchman Nouha Dicko bagged a double inside three minutes on 73 and 75 minutes.

Dicko also missed the chance of a hat-trick after his last-minute penalty was saved by keeper Chris Neal.

But Vale will be rueing missing arguably the best chance of the game in the 26th minute after Tom Pope skied over with only Carl Ikeme to beat.

Victory was Wolves’ seventh in a row – their best since the promotion season of 2008/09 - as they chase the club-record of eight from winter 1988. They also kept their fifth successive clean sheet as their superior goal difference to Leyton Orient put them in pole position.

They have now gone 516 minutes without conceding a goal as they prepare to chase that club record for straight wins in next Saturday’s Black Country derby at Walsall.

Head coach Kenny Jackett named an unchanged team for the third successive game, the first time this season he has done so.

The bench was unchanged as well as striker Leon Clarke continued his exile to a bruised heel.

Wolves dominated the first half but it was Vale who had the best chance in the 26th minute, Pope firing over with only Ikeme to beat.

Though they didn’t see much of the ball, Vale, who matched Wolves’ 4-2-3-1 formation and had ex-Molineux academy left-sided player Daniel Jones at wide left, looked comfortable with it in possession and well organised.

Vale, wearing all blue, kicked off in front of a derby atmosphere boosted by around 2,500 visitors fans who filled the lower tier of the Steve Bull Stand.

But it was Wolves, with Michael Jacobs pulling all the strings, who had the first opening in the fourth minute.

Jacobs started and finished it, running at Vale’s defence through the middle before looking up and rolling a shot wide from inside the area after rounding Billy Knott at pace.

Jacobs was again the man in Wolves’ next chance in the 14th minute when, out of nothing, the former Derby winger flashed in a dipping 30-yarder that just dropped wide.

Three minutes later it was Sako’s turn to have a go, but his goalbound angled drive after cutting in from the right hit team-mate Dicko.

Wolves’ next chance came in the 23rd minute when Danny Batth fired over as Dicko appeared to have a free header to plant home when Neal has flapped at James Henry’s cross.

Then came Pope’s golden opportunity after an uncharacteristic error by Jack Price was seized on by Billy Knott, who raced forward before unselfishly squaring to his unmarked team-mate.

The home side returned to the attack to have the only other two openings of the first period.

Both went to captain Sam Ricketts, the right-back crashing a towering header against the bar and out after steaming in on the right on to Henry’s inswinging cross on 39.

Three minutes later, Ricketts cut inside and lashed a fierce left-foot drive that sailed a narrowly over.

Vale were the first to show in the second half when centre-back Chris Robertson beat Batth to Chris Lines’s deep free kick but could only head wide on 51.

But seconds later, Wolves took the lead in somewhat fortuitous fashion.

Sako beat two players in a swaggering run down the left before cutting inside and letting fly, his shot taking a hefty deflection – possibly off right-back Jack Grimmer before looping over Neal and into the corner of the net.

That was what Wolves needed to relax and push on and they were stopped by illegal means the next time they broke on 67 as Robertson took out Jacobs with one of the most obvious blocks you will see.

From the resulting free kick, Sako’s drive cannoned off the wall and Dicko’s follow-up shot was blocked by Richard Duffy.

Two goals by Dicko in three minutes settled the match in Wolves’ favour however.

First he rifled home fiercely with a shot off the underside of the bar from a yard out after Vale failed to clear Ricketts’s cross.

There was time for Vale to bring on Jennison Myrie-Williams and Chris Birchall for Louis Dodds and Richard Duffy on 74 before Wolves made it 3-0.

Dicko showed tremendous strength and tenacity to hold off a retreating defence after controlling Sako’s long through ball over the top, turning smartly inside before rifling past Neal from 15 yards.

Ikeme saved from Pope’s half-volley and a Jones cross hit Myrie-Williams after a short corner.

But Wolves’ seventh straight win was in the bag and Dicko had the chance to make it more emphatic and bag his first hat-trick for the club with a last-minute penalty.

The French striker’s low shot was hard enough, but Neal guessed right, diving to his left to push the ball away and Dicko was crowded out as he tried to convert the rebound.

good win ,another clean sheet, only the saddlers in the way of another club record, 14 games left, brentford only drew with carlisle.

if we can get an experienced striker(as chris h asked for) in on loan to cover dicko/clark, we should be succesfull.

next week brentford got bradford and lorient got notts county away so we need to come back from bescot with 3 points to keep the pressure on.

chris h

Nik, Yep that is still my view. Someone to come on with 20 minutes to go if we need a Plan B . Today it was nil nil for a long time. That being said, it was pleasing that Dicho got his two goals . Things are very encouraging. We clearly have a number of players, perhaps all of them that started, that are a cut above third division standard. And Kenny Jackett has got them playing good football .

Buckswolf

It's Dicko - be nice if you could spell the name of your own club's players ChrisH UTW

chris h

I suppose it takes one dicko to know another dicko.

Buckswolf

Not your most cerebral post Chris - UTW

chris h

Bucks, Yes you are right. Apologies. Don't know where I got the 'ch' from instead of the 'k'. Some kind of blind spot, it was not a typo.

S.O.S.

Last Saturday I said that it was the happiest day of my life as Wolves beat Brentford and Ukraine deposed it's currupt pro-Russian president.

Today as I was following Wolves great win against PortVale on my main computer my main concern was what was happening as I was following the latest news on my laptop and on the TV.

Russia has effectively declared war against Ukraine and plans to invade in the next few hours. I hate Putin and the Kremlin and free Ukrainians will fight to the bitter end. If we could stand for three months in Kiev armed with sticks and home made shields against armed interior ministry troops then we will stand against the Red Army.

I hope that I will still be around for the next Wolves match against Walsall. I hope that the Wolves players will give that extra 5% for the club and for the freedom loving Ukrainians.

len

keep the faith mate home and away and you will come out on top

Alan in Cyprus

Mr Jackett seems to have the answers at the moment. Well done everyone.

StneotsWolf

Happy days are here again.

We have a manager who knows his stuff a playing system that works and players who can play. At this level at the very least. UTW

Statos Boring Brother

I'm loving it.

I know its only the third division (in old money) but thanks to KJ and the team I'm enjoying my football more than I've done for 20 years.

However, its not over yet and there's bound to be something to come along and bite us on the bum, just like when John de Wolf got injured. Hopefully we'll be able to stick it out and avoid the play offs.

sue

I'm loving it too.

Don't care what league we're in winning feels great! Love Sako today.

branoox

What a great team Kenny has built. Well done wolves, The quicker we can have a pop at those down the road the better. COME ON YOU WOLVES.

DancesWithWolves

The Magnificent Seven! Great film, great run by Wolves. To all those doubters, better start believing. King Kenny has turned us around, with a bit of help from the French Connection (another great film). I'm being taken by a client to the Orient v Wolves game, and I'm in the home section with lunch and hospitality thrown in. Apparently we can't show support for the away team in the home section. This is going to be difficult! Viva la France! (roughly translated as, Up the Wolves!!

Pembrokeshire Wolf

Hat-trick or no hat-trick, Dicko should not have taken the pen unless he is considered the best taker. Every goal is crucial and we should have been ruthless. I think if it had been to win the match, somebody else would have taken it (Jacobs?).

Tomwolf

I fully agree with you. Its not about who scores, its more important to score, if Dicko, is one of the penalty takers, fair enough, but if not, then let someone who is more confident take it. Every goal counts, and it could well be a deciding factor, come the end of the season, as to who gets promotion. UTW:

karlwolves

I HAD 4-0 AND 5-0 SO HOW SICK DO YOU THINK I FELT WHEN I HEARD WE HAD WASTED A PENALTY.......GRRRRRR

The Flying Winger

Marching on!!!!

Delighted for Dicko and excellent play from Sako.

Another good performance from everyone.

Some other good results going our way, a timely reminder from Rotherham how tough this league is.

A hat trick from Griffith's today, he must be happier now!

Stokewolf64

Who's Griffiths?? :o)

UTW

richierooster69

Get in there!!!! Superb! It's all coming together at the right time.

Jackett the Hat

18 for and 1 against since we hit our little run with two games in hand over second, and better goal difference.

I ay bovverd wot yo lot think, as far as I'm concerned, we got promoted last week...the bookies may as well pay me Monday morning.

One last thing-

To all the know- alls who wanted Sako sold, show your faces and admit you called it horribly wrong, Kenny's coached him and at this level he's becoming more and more unplayable. I remember some of the names, don't worry, I won't embarrass ya...........Wolves ay we.

Farmer Ted

If I'm not on your list, then I should be. The transformation in Sako has been astounding, he is definitely part of a team now. Whether that's down to the coaching of KJ and JG or the arrival of Jacobs and particularly a fellow Frenchman, Dicko, I'm not sure; it's probably both.

Earlier in the season he wasn't playing well and his defensive duties were awry. He deserved to be left out and I, for one, said it might be better he moved on. Now his head has been sorted out in no uncertain terms and his power and link play are pleasure to behold.

I said last week that KJ's "work in progress" now seems to be complete as far as this division is concerned, we just have to stay injury free and make full use of the squad over this very important month. Maybe an additional loanee or two.

Another impressive display yesterday although young Jack Price did give the ball away a couple of times in key positions; he's been such a vital cog alongside McDonald it's sometimes hard to remember he's so young and relatively inexperienced. I'm sure we all forgive him!

Good luck at the bookies on Monday....they're usually such a generous and understanding lot.

Wednesbury wolves

Exactly, and they call themselves the true fans, sell him to forest for 2 m, shows they know nothing, and the same brigade who love Morgan and moxey, let's see how much they give kenny next season in the championship shall we, before we ever agree on Morgan and moxey. Hoping some of the profit that Morgan makes on his 2500 houses in Ellesmere Port comes the other way now!!!!!!!!!!

brownwolf

Wolves are getting so good they're diverting the buses past the ground so that we can get a view of the fans in the top of the new stand.

charlie17

Really professional win, occasional pass went astray but situation soon brought under control. Good to see Ikeme using the ball more sensibly, instead of the long high ball which was only used on occasions. As a result we moved from defence to attack more often and with patience we got a result.

tipton wolf

Just gets better and better ! What a great job Kenny is doing..been so long since I felt this good..utw

1wolves

Another great win today, another clean sheet and scoring 3. This is the sort of win I had been hoping for all year with the squad we have. Yes it has taken some time but now I think KJ has got it sorted and we are now going from strength to strength. Top of the league again and hopefully we are there to stay. Now lets stay there and let everyone else do all the chasing.

Well done lads, well done KJ.

brierley hill wolf

Happy days, how refreshing after the last few years of torture, dont want the season to end now!!

mardygit

Well done lads, great win and another excellent clean sheet, I hope Stears is fit to play next week. Games are going to come thick and fast now, I want us to remain at the top now to the seasons end, smash the points total if we can that would be the icing on the cake. KJ's GOLD AND BLACK ARMY.

Rhys.wwfc

Magnificent, go for the record lads!!

L1 in the bag, guarenteed ;)

baza

Fantastic result from KJ and the boys, this is going to be a big month and I hope the team keep up the pressure on LO & Brentford and continue to play this exciting brand of football. Proud to be a WOLVES fan again.

Sedgley - Aussie Wolf

Great win for the lads and the fans. So good getting up in Oz now every week and seeing the result. It sounds by all accounts that KJ has got it sorted. Would be nice to get the record next week and beat the saddlers. Keep up the good work lads and i'll be over in blighty in August/Sept and hopefully watching a few Championship games down the mol...!!

Bedford Wolf

Just got home, cracking win and another excellent performance. All 11 starters performed well but special mentions for McDonald (as usual), Golbourne, Dicko and Sako. Fabulous defence, creative midfield, excellent wide players and a potent goal throat up front. Put that altogether = Champions! Only sour note, the Vale 'fans' in the corner nearest the Stan Cullis stand fighting and acting like morons - why no police to sort them out?

Stearmans overhead kick

Well done Kenny and the team, As the Wolves go marching On, On. On.

Tomwolf

Another 3pts, its was a tough game until the second goal went. They worked their socks off, getting in our faces constantly. I did think Jacobs, should have scored in the first few minutes, which may have settled us down a bit quicker, we seemed a bit complacent at times. But if any player deserves a goal,it must be the skipper, Sam Ricketts, he's header alone deserved a goal, then his screamer of a shot wasn't to far away. But his overall game was excellent. But the pairing of the French Connection, will take the plaudits, these two seem to be hitting it off really well, with a great understanding forming. But once the first, then the second went it, the confidence, was sky high again, and we started playing some excellent 1 and 2 touch football. And when we play like that we're unplayable. Another good performance by McDonald, and another huge performance by our back FIVE. Well played the lads. Top of the league, lets hope we remain there now till the season ends, but its not going to be easy, 14 more Cup Finals to play. UTW:

sylvain2u

Good win, the consistency and confidence seems to be growing at the right time of the season.

KJ had made some really good signings and dickos goals have been significant with grifiths gone and getting a hat trick today. Can anyone say that we are missing him?

I've said all along that keeping Sako was key even when he wasnt playing well and was probably very unsettled with all the transfer talk. Sako even when playing badly still creates more chances than all the rest of the squad and puts away his far share too. Also credit must go to the defence. It been a few years since we had had a solid defensive unit that doesnt give away silly goals every game or with defenders switching off. ... the memory of berra,johnson,ward, stearman and henry over the last couple of years still haunts me. although stearman in a new defence seems to have cut down the silly errors.

Its still 2 out of 3 for promotion and we have to keep going. The 2 games in hand could be crucial.

derbyshirewolf

Nice use of film titles in your submission DancesWithWolves. However, let's hope that next week we don' t have a Nightmare nowhere near Elm Street, nor that we get turned over by some Blazing Saddlers, because if we do, it could turn out to be a right Carry on up the Khyber! Well done today Wolves.

Solentwolves

What we are experiencing is "Atonement" for the suffering of previous seasons. "The Mission" that KJ and the squad are on will hopefully end in "Tunes of Glory".

kenco

Get a life! :)

Well done wolves out if darkness cometh light!!! COYW

Solentwolves

So pleased for everyone Wolves. Well done lads - another good weekend in the making.

Wednesbury wolves

Well earned 3 points only negative for me should've scored a lot more goals!!!! See my mate scored hat-trick today, in Celtic colours!!!!! Never mind he's history, looking forward to Clarke proving me wrong, as for sako well done mate keep shutting em up, half of em on here wanted you gone, yet they all gave you standing ovation!!!!! Bite there hand off for 2m they were saying ha ha ha ha ha clueless dimwits they know who they are. Sako man of the match for me by country mile. Wouldn't sell him for less than 10m now, got so much more to learn and give as well. 3 points next wk at bescot market and we're laughing.

Chillo Wolf

Bakary Sako stated he wanted to leave ... and then his form took a dive. Perhaps why some were calling for him to be sold?

I was of the opinion that if Forest came calling for 4mil then let him go, win win for club and player ... but not 2 mil Wednesbury, you're making up stories now.

Wednesbury wolves

4m chillo ha ha don't make me larrrrf the most anybody said on here was 2m FACT, he's priceless in my eyes and just needs nurturing. As for forest paying 4m what planet you on. Anyway we shall agree to disagree. Wot about my mate chillo yesterday at Celtic? Do u think we sold him a little too cheap? I certainly do

Chillo Wolf

The price was set at 4 mil by M&M Wednesbury

The price was set at such a ridiculous price because we didn't need to sell so it made it a win win situation for Wolves.

There is nothing to disagree on, the price was set.

Farmer Ted

As always with you, Wednesbury's child, you're all bluster and no substance.

The price set on Sako WAS FOUR MILLION. listen and learn.

Also if you can't see the difference between Griffiths leading the line and Dicko then you have a lot to learn.

I've watched a bit (not too much, thank God) of Scottish Sunday football and I reckon even at my age I could score a hat trick or two!

grumppy grandad

Another good win keep the run going lads come on you wolves

Sir Billy Quiet

Marvelous another JIWAL free week!

Stokewolf64

SBQ: not heard from JIWAL for ages... Hope he's ok.

UTW

Wednesbury wolves

Can never remember jiwal calling for sako to be shown the exit door, unlike yourself buckswolf mr Davies chillo just to name a few, bet you all stood up yesterday????? Call yourself wolves fans ha ha ha dimwits

Chillo Wolf

I think you will find, Wednesbury, that i always wanted Sako to stay. I commented as such on the 'big debate - sell or keep Sako - check it out. However, i also said that if he wanted away then maybe he should be allowed to move on for the sake of the team, much like Griffiths.

Don't let the facts get in the way of your rubbish though ay mate!

Buckswolf

Great win - who's JIWAL SBQ? UTW

Stokewolf64

Really enjoyed walking into my local when we got back after the match... Wolves shirt on and proud. Bragging rights all weekend.

Great win today, controlled the game in all departments.. Well played lads..

UTW

Tonka

Ah... Bliss.

KevincDonald rule, just hope he stays fit. None else in the squad can do what he does. Despite what everyone says, the squad is a bit thin in key areas, up front & centre midfield.

However, enjoy the moment.

Buckswolf

Moxey out Morgan out - what are they doing to our club? Bring back O'Hara - where's the money gone? The roof is leaking! We need another striker and a midfielder - why are we selling our best players? Errrrrrrrrrr I think that's about all for now! ;-) UTW

Stokewolf64

Over to you Chris... ;o)

UTW

chris h

No mate, Bucks is far too negative. No one says the roof leaks, it just ain't big enough.

Wednesbury wolves

Buckswolf one of the fans on this board who wanted sako gone, this fan is not one to listen too!!!!! Also said he didn't think it was right to ban anelka!!!!!!! Deluded dimwit, and has the audacity to keep on about jiwal, keep on embarassing yourself man

Buckswolf

Wednesbury - never said Sako should go - never said Anleka shouldn't be banned but I DID say you rise to the bait every time mate - now hold still while I get the hook out ;-)

Stearmans overhead kick

What the bloody hell you mentioned them three for?

whangareiwolf

I agree Pembrokeshire Wolf - and in Dicko taking the last minute penalty, has his miss altered the space–time continuum? I predicted the last 2 results, 2-0 Notts County and 0-3 Brentford and also my mates Leeds results 0-0 Boro and 1-1 QPR. I then told him we would beat Port Vale 4-0 this weekend. If Dicko hadn't taken the kick and the detailed penalty taker had taken it, and scored, our GD would have been one goal better off. The goal (that should have been) could prove crucial come May. Only time will tell - watch this space!

Albrightondek

Once again the word comfortable seems to be the most apt word to describe Wolves latest win. Although Vale had periods in which they passed the ball around, they no cutting edge when they faced our defence. Their best chance was the result of a misplaced pass in midfield in the first half. Most of the first half Wolves were in control, but were again rather wasteful of the chances that came their way.

In the second half Wolves stepped up a gear and deservedly went in front, albeit with a lucky deflection. From then on it was just a matter of waiting for the next goal to be scored. Dicko's two goals were well taken, but he should have been celebrating his first hat-trick with the club. Somehow his body language told me he was going to miss the penalty. Memo to Jackett: he ain't a penalty taker.

There were good performances from all the players. Dicko I believe was awarded the MOTM, but it could have equally have gone to others. Kevin McDonald was dominant in midfield (as usual), and Jacobs was prominant throughout the game. Good battle between Stearman and Pope, with Stearman coming out on top on points.

I'm sure that we are not going to win all the remaining games, but when I go to the matches these days I go there with an expectation that we will win. It's a marked contrast to last season when I would troop down to Molineux with expectation of witnessing another dull boring game under either Solbakken or Saunders.

Lesterwolf

All of the above comments are great but I want to know is 'Jack th Hat ' boing boing DEAD? or has he lost the plot.

If you are there Jack..................... see you in the Championship next season boing effin boing

Mountain Wolf

Since FIFA does not allow a patron saint of football, can we just acknowledge that Kenny Jackett is a god? And this comes from somebody, who up until now, has made no comment publically or privately about KJ as, like many, I've been bitten very badly in the recent (stuff of nightmares) past. Well done to all coaching staff, players, groundsmen and fans.

Courier

I find that the difference in the team this year is the fact that we only use the long ball on odd occasions. We now more often than not play the ball through mid field . Players now pass the ball and move to a space to receive the ball back and carry on the attack.

It is so nice to see a game after the troubles of the past seasons where we play for 90 mins . It is very easy on the eye.

Very well done wolves

paul

it is feeling like the whole club is coming back together again after the hell of the last two seasons, we must now hammer this league and go up with style, i do think KJ has a good keep your feet on the ground style that has the players focused on just the next game, so good on him, now i think its the fans turn to fill up the ground for the last few home games and turn the Mol into a party atmosphere, Mr Morgan get your money out and take us back to the Prem then you will be able to finish the WHITE ELEPHANT THAT "YOU" Started into a ground thats fit for the best fans in the land. any body got a spare ticket for Bescot.

Jack Russell

JIWAL doesn't like Wolves doing well, he has nothing to moan about! Not only is it all going well, but it is built on solid foundations. Yes there may be the odd 'hiccup', but I think we have every reason to be optimistic about where the club is going.

hungryliketheWolf

This season has got progressively better and better in terms of how Wolves are playing such wonderful football. The fans have started to become much more patient with the style we have adapted and I honestly think people are watching the games and enjoying them. Unlike the past when it's been nerve wracking because you just never knew which Wolves team would turn up. We are so consistent in the way we play football that every game I go and watch is a game I really look forward too. Even my Kids including teenage girls and as well as a son who is a Chelsea fan (Trying to convert) are coming and really enjoying themselves. The atmosphere is just great at the moment. Our fans have smiles on there faces and it's really bringing Wolverhampton as a community back together. Kenny Jackett deserves so much credit for all of this. I was dreading this season after the last two. But, I was wrong to dread it. Thank you Kenny and Co. for making every Saturday one I look forward too and for bringing the smiles back to wulfrunian faces

C'mon me babbies

tatmon

7 wins in a row, one goal conceded last 7 games and best defence in top 4 divisions

Its up to Clarke to fight his way back into this team and KJ shouldn't tinker back to 4-4-2 to accommodate his re-arrival. Stick with the premier league formation our Kenny!

Euro Wolf

JIWAL - are you there? And while we are at it where's the miserable Spanish Ray? And, bottom of the pile Jack the Prat. Ooh it's all gone quiet, all gone quiet, all gone quiet over there!

maccadub

Another good result but I'm expecting us to get automatic promotion from this league. It's nice to feel nearly 100% confident that we can or will best any team in this league. The last few seasons were a nightmare watching or waiting for the final whistle after every game. Let's hope we all don't suffer the same anxiety once we return to the championship. Good luck wolves!!!

chris h

It is good that we are winning football matches, it is good that we are keeping clean sheets, scoring goals and playing in a fluent free style. But it is concerning that so many fans seem to think this is better than being in the Premier. Better than competing at the highest level, seeing some of the finest footballers in the World gracing the pitch at Molineux. Would you all rather see Wolves win no matter how poor the standard of football ? To see Pope miss a sitter rather than playing against a Drogba. Do fans only want us to win the boxing match with a knockout against inferior opposition? Do we only want to compete in Tennis tournaments at Eastbourne because Wimbledon is to tough? Do we want to ignore the fact that Albion, Stoke and Villa play their football at the highest level? Do we want to live in a bubble and forget the tuants of rival fans? People are coming on here and saying where is JIWAL, as if we have won the European Cup. This season should be looked at as a small stepping stone. If the fans of Wolverhampton Wanderers have lost all appetite for top grade football, we may as well let Steve Morgan build some houses on the pitch.

Chillo Wolf

These are just some of Jiwals recent posts this year ...

'Jesus...more claptrap.... talk as always is cheap, just like his purchases. If he didnt tinker so much it may well improve. Now we only ever play for half an hour at best and panic for the other 60 minutes.'

'The coaching is appalling, the academy is a waste of space, his team selections baffling.... '

'MORGAN, MOXEY , JACKETT......OUT !!'

People have asked 'where is Jiwal' for good reason.

And I don't think anyone is suggesting that beating Port Vale at home is better than playing in the Premier League. Maybe it's just the case that the fans are really positive about the current team and the current manager - They are happy Chris h and so they should be

Get a grip man, stop whinging and moaning and enjoy the ride.

chris h

Chillo, Like your mate Bucks says, ' reel them in'. But I have heard plenty say it or at least infer it. Also it was a debating point on WM . You have been very busy collecting JIWAL's quotes. Hope you got a few of mine, like when I said I thought Jackett was a good appointment and I hoped Sako stays because he is a match winner. Then when we were the first team to beat Man Utd that season and I said ' breath it in, it doesn't get any better than this'. Not always whinging, just have ambition for our football club .

Jackett the Hat

Chris, all wulfies want the very best for the club, all wulfies want to win top games , cup or league, with sold out signs a week before and a ground rocking with an electric atmosphere ......but......the Prem is solely a commercially run greed league and a play pen for the worlds richest bandwagon jumpers. You and I both know that outside the top six your just making up the numbers, can you honestly get enjoyment from that week in, week out. Villa, Albion and Stokies fill the airwaves with moans and groans every day, they ain't happy , there's only Wolves fans on the phone-ins smiling and enjoying the games, I appreciate it's only league 1 and not the standard we want in an ideal world, but the promise of a healthy future is there for all to see, the Prem is a possibility mate, but with basic investment running into hundreds of millions , can you ever see Wolves doing anything more than being 3 points for the big boys ?.

Sit back and enjoy the rest of the season Chris, at least it's not expensive and boring .......Wolves ay we.

sue

Nice one jacket the Hat, I 'm loving it at the moment, I know it's only Div 1 but isn't it better winning than losing every week but I'm an happy clapper don't you know.

nik.hare1

yes of course everyone wants wolves to play in the premier(old division one)

and see the finest players grace molinuex, but as with your statement, i would hate to be wba,stoke,villa, fans and watch us lose every other week and finish in the bottom 10, every season and hope to win the cup.

so now chris for the last few weeks you have nothing to moan about, but i am sure you will find something......oh look our under21's lost to liverpool... there you go chris , enjoy.

Stearmans overhead kick

Lesterwolf, No he's probably o.k. Just Jack the Hat won't surface till chucking out time. He will probably be moaning how his team had bad luck this weekend and will realise when he's sobered up that they ain't even played.Got to loff aya Jack?

Robert

I had 9/1 for 3-0 so was quite pleased from that view that Dicko missed. A joy to watch the football on display as compared to the past few seasons. Keep it up Wolves. Onward to tthe Bescot on Saturday.

Doyler!

Great result. Another three points on the board, fantastic! Well done lads, onwards and upwards.

Happy days are here again. Now for Smallsall at Bescot. That will be a game and a half.
