Tough Game At Wolves On Saturday But Win Possible

It’s always difficult to play Wolves, and especially at Molineaux.

Mick McCarthy – Wolves manager

And Wolves seem to have improved this season, with the capture of one or two good players such as defender Roger Johnson from Birmingham, and talented midfielder Jamie O’Hara from Tottenham.

Wolves are currently in 12th place in the league with 7 points from their first six games, and of course they won their first two league games of the season to get off to a very good start.

They won at Blackburn 2-1 on the opening day, and then beat Fulham 2-0 at home, but have lost their last three games in the league.

Jonas Gutieerez talked today about the upcoming Saturday afternoon game:

“Last season it was a very hard game at their place but we deservedly got a point,” “Seriously though, all away games are very tough.”

“I know they started well but have slipped recently and have lost their last two home games – but that’s maybe makes them even more dangerous, and so we will need to be extra careful.”

“However, we go there in a confident mood, and know that a win, regardless of what anyone else does, keeps us at least fourth in the table and that makes us all very proud.”

“The team has had a great start to the season and maybe has surprised a few people.”  “As players we really believe in ourselves and so it is maybe not so much of a surprise to us that we have not lost a game yet.”

“Of course we realise it is very early in the season, and there are a lot of very hard games ahead, but so far we have done well and won the games we would have expected to.”

“We have a lot of talent in the squad, Yohan had done very well and the other new lads who have been brought in by the manager look very good players too.”  

“And of course having Hatem Ben Arfa back is a great boost for us all too.”

Newcastle seem to be in good form with the spirit at the club seemingly just terrific at the moment, and we would hope for another good attacking display away from home, that we saw in that second half at Villa Park a couple of weeks ago.

And Alan Pardew will have almost all the players to choose from, and thankfully injuries have not been too bad this season so far – fingers crossed.

We could even see Davide Santon make an appearance on the bench on Saturday.

With a good display from the lads, and if Demba Ba and Leon Best are as good as they were against Blackburn Rovers last Saturday, we could even get a win at Molineaux, but we’d be satisfied with a draw, to at least keep the unbeaten run going.

But a win would be just fantastic.

What do you think?

    We can win this,Wolves are desperate for a win so may open up more. Our speed on the counter-attack will catch them out.

    yeah lads this is the type of game that’s always been problematic for us down the years a striker like doyle was always our un-doing be interesting to see how it goes and another good marker to see how far weve come under pards.

    I think best will be on a mission to out shine K doyel and force his way back into the Ireland squad. But im expecting a very tough game. Wolves play a very pressing defence so if we can’t control midfield then i would like to see and early sub to change to a 5 man midfield.

    anyone else notice ban Arfas positioning on sat especially when spidey played that clever lil pass
    thats what benny gives us a bit more belief in trying that kinda cheeky thing coz they know hes making the run a player like that can make everyone improve or show just how good they really are

    its easy for us to get carried away, and think a win is in the bag on saturday. I keep trying to stop myself from thinking that way. I do think we can beat wolves BUT they are going to be tough on Saturday, and ad Geordieupontyne said they do have their ‘kung fu’ style…..hope Ben Arfa is careful. Anyway, if we get the play to the wings, and Ba get service he can score, and Besty is a work horse so i will get chances too. I dont expect to lose……a win would be cracking stuff.
