Match Thread: RCD Espanyol vs Wolves
And so..... Wolves ambitions to excel in this year's Europa League continue when they face RCD Espanyol in the return leg of the final 16 knockout stage in Barcelona tomorrow evening. Wolves take a 4 - 0 lead into the game from the first leg courtesy of a fantastic display of a hatrick by Diogo Jota and another long distance smash from Ruben Neves.
Wolves v Norwich City: Match Thread 23.2.2020
Here we go again, back at Molineux again this afternoon when we welcome Norwich City, currently adrift at the bottom of the league by 6 points, seven points from safety. This comes right off the back of Thursday night, the magnificent Europa league night in WV1, when we placed ourselves in such a great position ahead of the second leg versus Espanyol. 4-0 the score, 3 goals of very high quality, and a thoroughly deserved victory and fine team performance. Wolves will take a massive amount of confidence away, there’s no doubt, however this is the moment to cement European form into Premier League wins. Our last five league matches read W1 D3 L1 and whilst the only defeat was a great performance against Liverpool, it is goals we need …. Just like we manage in Europe.
Wolves v Espanyol: Match Thread KO 8pm 20.2.2020
When we managed our brilliant qualification into the Europa League, I’m sure the enormity of the qualification rounds and group stages had maybe been overlooked, at least for a few of us? Well, it did me. But here we are in late February and we’re still in it, the proper knock outs start here. Trips to Northern Ireland, Armenia, Italy, Portugal, Slovakia, Turkey have now culminated in our next Spanish opponents, Reial Club Deportiu Espanyol de Barcelona, Espanyol for short! Both Wolves and Espanyol started off in the same second qualifying round of the competition, however, have since faired very differently in their respective leagues. Espanyol, as it has been well documented, have actually got off to one of their worst league starts in years, P24 W 4 D L 13 Pts 19, nevertheless don’t necessarily be sucked in by that. This is because their 6 league matches in 2020 have amassed 9 of those points with 2 wins, 3 draws (one v the other Barcelona team) and 1 loss. Essentially their current form, combined with our excellent ability to draw matches and perhaps not convert chances makes this fixture anything but a foregone conclusion. Naturally Nuno and the lads won’t be resting on their laurels, but this will be a much sterner test that a cursory glance at stats might first suggest. Indeed, Albelardo, the Espanyol manager has promised today that they are not just in Wolverhampton ‘for sightseeing or as tourists’, though hat’s off that he’s heard of some of our brilliant local attractions e.g. Dudley Castle, Black Country Museum, Wightwick manor, Bantock Park etc. Well done sir!
Match Thread: Wolves vs Leicester City
Wolves face local rivals Leicester City in tonight's Premier league game - their first since returning from a warm-weather training break in Spain. Fans will surely be hoping for an unlikely repeat of Diogo Jota's hat-trick against City last season, which led to Nuno Espirito Santo be fined £10,000 for memorably running down the line and on to the pitch to celebrate with the players.
Match Thread: Manchester United vs Wolves
Wolves travel for another big challenge today, facing Manchester Ubited at Old Trafford in the day's late kick-off. New signing Daniel Podence is likely to be in the match day squad, along with Diogo Jota and Willy Boly who have recovered from injury.
Match Thread: Wolves vs Liverpool FC
Possibly the biggest game of Wolves' season so far kicks off at Molineux at 8pm this evening. After a very close game recently at Anfield, Wolves have the chance to bring a halt to the Liverpool juggernaut team which has dropped only two points all season, and to jump over Manchester United into 5th place in the League.
Match Thread: Southampton FC vs Wolves
Wolves face a challenging afternoon when they travel to Southampton for today's Premier League game. Southampton have been revitalised in recent weeks after a struggle at the beginning of the season, and now sit three points behind Wolves and seven points above the relegation zone.
Match Thread: Man Utd v Wolves FA Cup 3rd Round replay
We travel up the M6 to play Manchester United on Wednesday 15th January in this 3rd round replay - a journey that will be made once more for the league fixture on 1st February. After a fairly drab 0-0 3rd round fixture at Molineux earlier in the month (brightened up somewhat by the pre-match Stairway to Heaven light show), all eyes will be on both managers to see who they will select in their respective sides. Wolves probably edged that match with an excellent save by Romero the key point where the score remained goaless .... and a handball goal that Doc should have put away ...... as well as a deflected Rashford shot hitting the bar ....... but other than that it was pretty drab!
Match Thread: Wolves vs Newcastle United
After probably only their second full week without a midweek game so far this season, Wolves will be keen to get back on to the Molineux pitch and seek three points against United.
Match Thread: FA Cup Third Round: Wolves vs Man Utd
Wolves will set out today to prove that last year's feat of reaching the FA Cup semi-final was not a fluke and can be repeated or bettered. Once again they face Manchester United at Molineux and hope to repeat last season's win whilst also hoping to avoid three successive defeats.
