Wolves’ Wembley sellout guarantees them their biggest following for 16 years

Wolves are guaranteed their biggest following for nearly 16 years after they sold their entire allocation of 33,000 tickets for their FA Cup semi-final with Watford at Wembley. Tickets were snapped up in the space of five days by season ticket holders and members for the eagerly-awaited clash on Sunday, April 7. The sell-out means Wolves will be backed by their biggest following since a similar number descended on Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium for the Championship play-off final win against Sheffield United in 2003, which was watched by 69,473, as the club prepares for its first FA Cup semi-final since 1998.…

O’Hara: Wolves a proper club now but massive divide between players and fans in my time

Jamie O’Hara admits there was a ‘massive divide’ between players and fans when he played for Wolves – but claims they are a ‘proper club’ now.

The 15-goal top scorer was not involved in Mexico’s 4-2 friendly win against Paraguay, played in California in the early hours of Wednesday, UK time.

But his exclusion means that barring jet lag, he should be ready for selection for head coach Nuno Espirito Santo for the trip to Turf Moor. Jimenez maintained his hot streak of scoring form after netting the first goal in Mexico’s…

Wolves captain Conor Coady reacts to England snub

Conor Coady insists it’s more important to focus on doing well for Wolves than dwell on being snubbed by England. England coach Gareth Southgate says he overlooked the Wolves captain for his latest two Euro 202 qualifiers against the Czech Republic and Montenegro because of reservations about him adapting to a back four as Coady plays in a defensive three. Everton’s Michael Keane and James Tarkowski of Burnley were selected instead, but Coady, who once captained England Under-17s to European glory, isn’t concerned. “I don’t feel hard done by, not at all,” the skipper told Wolves official wesbite. “This is…
