Last season Chelsea faced Wolves on two occasions with the now Championship club of course in the Premier League. Chelsea emerged with victory on both occasions against a considerably …

After Wolves were related against Manchester City it would be easy for the team to just fold and give in the rest of their games this season. But the players however have a lot still to play for, that is their own personal Premiership survival.
Take their most recent game against Swansea (and what a game). Being down 3-0 and 4-1 it would have been easy to just give in to Swansea and lose because points are not relevant anymore. But Wolves do have strong players that are …

Its been a tough couple of weeks for football managers. I have been pretty confused and shocked about certain decisions made by clubs lately. Now everyone knows that managing a Football Club is no easy job, It is simply put down to tactics, players, and resources but recently another factor has made a huge contribution to a managers job, the clubs board. I don’t know about you, but I think a club should have ambitions at the start of the season and that they should made clear to the manager. If these …

Liverpool returned to Premier League winning ways with a hard fought win over Wolves. A Roger Johnson own goal and a sublime Luis Suarez strike gave Liverpool a two goal advantage at the break, Wolves responded with a Steven Fletcher goal but Liverpool held on for the three points.
It was a vital win for the home side after two consecutive defeats away from home in the Premier League, this also showed that Liverpool’s home form has drastically improved compared to last season.
For Wolves this was the fourth league match …

Although Chelsea spent around £70 million, Liverpool paid £57.8m for two strikers and Aston Villa paid £24 million on a goal machine it looks like Wolverhampton Wanderers may have made the most important signings in January.
Staring relegation in the face going into the transfer window wolves spent just £500,000 but their two signings are helping to drag them away from the drop.  In 18th and unbeaten in four games including a 3-3 draw with Spurs and an away win at Villa, Wolves are full of confidence which wasn’t there at the start …

On the 28th of April 1994, two rugby enthusiasts bore a child, into a humble, yet middle class background from Oxfordshire. Now 16 years on as my father begrudgingly drives me to football matches, both for the team I play to Molineux to see the mighty Wolverhampton Wanderers; I wonder if it is really possible to embrace the culture of being a football fan of a team who’s followers have such a different background to myself, and whether all the obstacles I must overcome in order to be a …

After winning against Wolves in the Carling Cup  by the score of 3-2 on the 26th October, Manchester United will now be looking to win again in the Barclays Premier League on Saturday at 15:00GMT at Old Trafford. United will once again have Wayne Rooney missing, but if Chicharito continues to build on his excellent performances so far, then United fans will have nothing to worry about. Moreover, this is considered to be an easy game against a team in the 19th place which has only collected 9 points from …

Owen Hargreaves joined Manchester United from Bayern Munich in the summer of 2007 for a transfer fee of around £17 million. However, most of his Man Utd career has been hampered with injuries. A recurring patellar tendinitis has restricted the number of matches in which Owen Hargreaves could feature. He visited a renowned knee surgeon, Richard Steadman, in November 2008 and was operated in the same month. He underwent surgery again in January 2009. He has rarely played for Manchester United since then and on the 24th September 2010, Sir …
