But what of our record against Blackburn Rovers? In the Premier league our record against Rovers …
Jarvis or Etherington for England?

Jarvis or Etherington for England?

Last season saw Matty Jarvis become Wolves' first England player since Steve Bull back in 1990. For many of us Wolves fans, it was a proud moment for our player to showcase his skills and abilities to the nation. We all know how good Jarvo has been over the last 4 years, with his  blistering pace and sublime skill to out-do even some of the most experienced full-backs in the league. However, thirty miles up the M6 in the nearby Potteries, there …

Wolves - A Season Review 2010/11

Never in doubt was it?! Only 8 minutes away from suffering from the dreaded 'second season syndrome', up pops Hunty to save us. Jubilation ripped round the 'Old Molineux' as we knew that we going to be in the EPL for a third consecutive season. What a relief then to see us stay in the league after being 3-0 down at half time to a very competent Blackburn Rovers team on the day, but how did we get ourselves into this position? The …

The Riches of Doyle and Fletcher

For the past two years, whilst being in the Premier League, Wolves have been at their most effective whilst playing 4-5-1. However, this surely must be the season that  Mick finally reverts back to his favoured 4-4-2 formation with both Doyler and Fletch leading the line. Over the last two seasons there is no question that Wolves have not had the midfield and defence to allow us to play two up top as we have often been stretched, leading to many …
Is Roger Johnson, Berra?

Is Roger Johnson, Berra?

So after two years of chasing for Mick, he finally gets his man! Roger Johnson today became the newest addition to the ranks as he signed a four year contract for a reported £7M transfer fee. As ever, Wolves have gone about their business quietly, and for the third season in a row have pulled off a 'marquee' signing following on from Kevin Doyle and Steven Fletcher. Its hard to believe that some Internet forums were full of doom and …
Premier League Goal Scoring Patterns

Premier League Goal Scoring Patterns

Our statistical expert Ford Bohrmann analyses Premier League goal scoring patterns by looking at which areas of the goal teams score in. The article focuses on every Premier League side and then also covers their conversion percentages with the use of graphics. The original idea for this post came from a question from one of the readers of my blog. He was curious to know if there were any patterns to where clubs score in the plane of the goal. …
Hennessey v Krul | Stats Comparison

Hennessey v Krul | Stats Comparison

Given the lack of a manager at Wolves, it will be Mick McCarthy’s former assistant, Terry ‘Clipboard’ Connor who takes the reins at Wolves away game at Newcastle United. Given this progression, it is not expected that there will be a number of changes to the personnel selected. One player, though, is surely guaranteed a place – Wayne Hennessey. Yes, he made a massive error in McCarthy’s defeat to West Brom, an error that allowed them to retake the lead …
