Jota fires Wolves and it feels like a winner – report

Crystal Palace 1 (Ward 47) Wolves 1 (Jota 90+5) Wolves fans will be hoping their Premier League season is up and running after they rescued a point at the death at Crystal Palace. Coming as late as it did, Diogo Jota’s equaliser in the fifth minute of time added on not only ended a run of three straight defeats for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side, but felt like a winner, especially as they had been reduced to 10 men for the last 17 minutes after Romain Saiss saw red. Wolves’ reply was late, but it was certainly deserved, after the visitors…

Wasteful Wolves pay the price for missed chances against Braga – report

Wolves 0 Braga 1 Wolves’ woes continued but this time on the European stage as they went down by the only goal scored by Ruben Neves’s best mate Ricardo Horta. Horta pounced in clinical fashion in the 71st minute to punish Nuno Espirito Santo’s side, after a pass from Ryan Bennett was intercepted by Galeno who crossed for the finish. Wolves were the better side but failed to turn their dominance into converted chances. Patrick Cutrone missed two and Leander Dendoncker forced a fine save from Matheus, while Raul Jimenez glanced wide at the death. But there was to be…

Wolves owners willing to sell 20 per cent of the club

Wolves owners Fosun are willing to sell part of the club in exchange for more investment to try to turn it into a super-power. It’s understood the Chinese investors value Wolves at £350m and are willing to sell up to 20 per cent of the club. That would mean a £70m stake is up for grabs. Fosun bought the club for £45m from Steve Morgan back in July 2016 and they have invested unprecedented amounts since. Around £228m has been spent on transfer fees alone, with the club record broken five times under them, the latest of which was the…

Wolves 7 Chelsea 1: McGarry was raging at us for not scoring 10 – Kindo

The Sun run a weekly feature where they pick a fixture from that weekend and look at a corresponding one from yesteryear. Today, as Wolves entertain Chelsea, Russell Lanning interviewed then Wolves record signing Steve Kindon on the 7-1 win against the Stamford Bridge side on March 15, 1975. ‘Kindo’ played for Burnley in two spells (1968-72/1977-79), Wolves (1972-77) and Huddersfield (1979-82). Here, he reflects on the match and a surprising verbal blast from the manager at the end…for not scoring more! The brilliant raconteur – now 68 – is on the after-dinner circuit and it’s easy to see why…

Wolves cub Giles determined to keep his shirt

Wolves cub Ryan Giles is determined to keep his shirt in more ways than one after making his England Under-20s debut on a special night at Shrewsbury Town. The 19-year-old played 66 minutes of the 0-0 draw for Keith Downing’s side against the Netherlands at the Montgomery Waters Meadow, where he has been an ever-present for the League One host team this season as part of his season-long loan there. Players often swap shirts after games but Giles has vowed to keep his after a proud and memorable evening for him and for his family. “I think I’ll keep the…

Raul vows Wolves will improve as Nuno admits strike partnership needs time

Raul Jimenez has vowed Wolves will learn from their defeat at Everton as Nuno Espirito Santo acknowledged the club’s most expensive strike partnership needs time. Jimenez, the club’s £32.6m record signing, was paired up front with £20m Patrick Cutrone for the first time from the start in the Premier League as Diogo Jota began on the bench. The pairing tasted mixed fortunes in the 3-2 defeat, with Jimenez scoring his eighth goal of the season to make it 2-2 and receiving a boot in the face for his troubles, while Cutrone was superbly denied by goalkeeper Jordan Pickford at 2-1…

Coady: Wolves will go to Everton with ‘all guns blazing’

Forget any talk of fatigue – captain Conor Coady insists Wolves will go to Everton on Sunday with ‘all guns blazing’. Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have another quick turnaround after their Europa League exploits on Thursday night, taking on the Toffees just three days after beating Torino to earn a place in the group stages. The Premier League trip to Goodison Park will be Wolves’ NINTH game in a month. Coady has played every minute of Wolves’ last 75 matches in all competitions going back to January 2018. But like his team-mates, the sweeper is showing no signs of letting…

Wolves four prove they pack a punch in the Prem – report

Wolves might be known for their passing football but what might be more surprising is they also pack a punch in the tackle. Last season Nuno Espirito Santo’s side had four players in the top 20 of the most prolific tacklers in the Premier League * – the only team to register that many. Midfielder Joao Moutinho, centre back Willy Boly, left wing back Jonny Castro Otto and midfielder Ruben Neves all featured in the list, which was topped by Leicester City’s Wilfred Ndidi. The Foxes midfielder made 143 tackles, with a 69 per cent success rate, one challenge ahead…

How Adama Traore has become Wolves’ passport to a golden future

When Adama Traore failed to bring his passport to Armenia, it seemed a cruelly ironic moment. Here was someone who shows so much ability to get about on the pitch at speed, yet was left grounded while his team-mates were airborne after forgetting vital documents. There have been times on the pitch when Traore has looked as lost as a piece of left luggage at an airport, others when he has left opponents as terrified as a vertigo sufferer about to board a plane. Head coach Nuno Espirito Santo’s belief in the 23-year-old has never wavered. He made him his…

Doherty hands Wolves boost; Vallejo and Cutrone could debut

Wolves have been handed a major boost before their latest foray into Europe with the return of Matt Doherty. The club’s longest-serving player is available for the first time this summer after recovering from a knee injury, and could feature in Thursday’s Europa League third qualifying round trip to Armenian side FC Pyunik. Doherty suffered the ligament niggle in pre-season training and he missed the trip to China for the Asia Trophy, as well as the first two Europa League ties against Crusaders. But he is fully fit now. Head coach Nuno Espirito Santo said: “Matt is going to travel…
