Another Nuno article and 'This day in History'
First of all, my good wishes to all reading this, wherever you are. Keep well, keep safe. No sport, no football continues. I have found another Nuno article, this time from the BBC with the link below. It's another good write up, with comments from Hassan 'Kouka' Ahmed, the Braga centre forward on loan to Olympiakos, who came across Nuno during the players days at Rio Ave when Nuno was Manager. It's another decent, complimetary read of our fabulous Manager! Click on the 'BBC article' link below.
15th March 1980: League Cup Final Wolves v Nottingham Forest
It was 40 years ago! Hard to believe that today marks the 40th anniversary of the last time Wolves won a major trophy - the league cup. Who would have thought all these years later we would have still been waiting for our next?
Match Thread: Olympiacos Piraeus vs Wolves
Wolves have travelled to Piraeus, Athens seeking to further their adventure in this season's Europa League and reach the Quarter Final stage. However they know that this two-leg challenge will be far from easy against the team which beat Arsenal at the Emirates two weeks ago.
Last week an excellent article was published in the Telegraph about our manager NES. It's a great read and gives a little background into the man and what makes him tick. With media, in cricketing terms, Nuno usually plays a great 'straight bat' but here, provides some real answers.
Match Thread: Wolves vs Brighton & HA
On paper Wolves face an enormous opportunity to wake the rest of the football world up and note their presence today as they entertain Brighton and Hove Albion at Molineux
Match Thread: Tottenham Hotspur vs Wolves
Wolves make their first visit to the new Tottenham Hotspur stadiuum today, seeking to repeat their triumph over the North London club achieved at Wembley last season, and in the knowledge that three points could potentially lift the club into fifth place in the Premier League.
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.
