Laurie’s message to Wolves fans, Nuno and the team

Departed Wolves managing director Laurie Dalrymple has responded to the announcement of his shock exit by thanking supporters and wishing the team all the best. Dalrymple took to Twitter on Thursday evening, to address his 15,500 followers after being bombarded with goodwill messages since the club announced he was leaving with immediate effect on Wednesday tea-time. The Molineux supremo left after his relationship with the board broke down over a number of issues. He has been placed on gardening leave, and, as expected, gave nothing away by way of explanation for his sudden departure. He tweeted: “In the past 24…

Surprise name in Wolves’ China tour squad

Forgotten man Roderick Miranda is the shock inclusion in the Wolves squad to travel to China for the Premier League Asia Trophy.

Wolves ‘inquire’ about Burnley defender Tarkowski – claim

Wolves have inquired about Burnley defender James Tarkowski as Nuno Espirito Santo looks to strengthen his defence. The Times claim the 26-year-old England international is the subject of Wolves’ and other interest too, with Leicester targeting him and Brighton’s Lewis Dunk in case Harry Maguire moves to Manchester United or Manchester City this summer. Burnley are in no hurry to sell and Tarkowski still has three years left to run on his contract. But the attraction of Europa League football is bound to be of interest to the Mancunian former Brentford centre back, who has been capped twice and was…

Afterwards, Nuno, his staff and the players went on a celebratory lap of honour to thank the support, which…

Wolves can make the top six next season – if they splash the cash

Wolves have been backed to gatecrash the top six next season – provided they splash the cash, according to pundits Alvin Martin and Ray Parlour. Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have taken many by surprise this season with the relative eas in which they have settled into the Premier League. Wolves are sitting in seventh place with two games left, in stark contrast to their opponents this Saturday who they were promoted with – relegated Fulham.

Villa Under-23s 1 Wolves Under-23s 0 Wolves Under-23s were prevented from regaining top spot in Premier League 2 after a dominant second-half display from Villa at Walsall’s Banks’s Stadium. Striker Cameron Archer grabbed the only goal after 53 minutes, beating goalkeeper Andreas Sondegaard after a smart dummy left him in the clear to consign Rob Edwards’s side to a third straight defeat, all on the road. It really was a game of two halves, played in driving rain; Wolves bossed the first period and created numerous chances to have led only for the half to end goalless, but they were…

Raul is ‘a loser’ for wearing mask – Deeney

Troy Deeney mocked Wolves top scorer Raul Jimenez as a ‘loser’ for donning the mask given to him after he scored. Watford captain Deeney won and scored the penalty that forced extra-time either side of Gerard Deulofeu’s double that clinched their 3-2 win and a final against Manchester City next month. Jimenez donned a wrestling mask given to him by fellow Mexican and WWE star Sin Cara after putting Wolves 2-0 up after 63 minutes at Wembley. But Deeney and Watford had the last laugh and the former Walsall striker said: “I genuinely didn’t see that until just now. “I’m…
