Five of Wolves’ Premier League fixtures moved for TV coverage

Wolves have had five Premier League fixtures moved for TV coverage over the next three months. The most high profile switch sees the visit of champions Manchester City to Molineux moved to Friday, December 27 for screening by Amazon at 7.45pm, put back from Boxing Day. The first, which had been previously announced, sees the visit of neighbours Villa moved to Sunday, November 10, with a 2pm kick-off, for coverage by Sky Sports. The game had originally been scheduled for the Saturday. Next up is the home clash against West Ham, which has been put back 24 hours to Wednesday,…

Ex-Wolves winger Dave Thomas goes to print on his battle with blindness

Former Wolves winger Dave Thomas has spoken of how his life changed the day he received a letter from the DVLA informing him he was no longer allowed to drive. This was no self-inflicted punishment due to misdemeanours on the road; Thomas had become the first registered blind former England international. The year was 2008, 24 years after he had hung up his boots and at a time of his life when the then 58-year-old should have been looking to make the most of his retirement. A progressive loss of sight due to glaucoma led to a huge readjustment for…

Jordan Graham ends exile with loan move away from Wolves

Forgotten Wolves winger Jordan Graham has joined Bulgarian outfit Lokomotiv Plovdiv – 177 days after last playing. The 24-year-old, who is out of contract at the end of the season, has signed for the Division A (top flight) club on loan and could make his debut at home to CSKA Sofia on Sunday. The former Villa Academy graduate joins Wolves team-mate Sylvain Deslandes, 22, at Lokomotiv, who are the current Bulgarian Cup holders and third in the table. Graham hasn’t played since April 22 when he featured in the last of 19 games on loan at League One Oxford, 16…

Wolves man Doc told to be ready for ‘cup final’

Wolves wing back Matt Doherty has been told to be ready for a ‘cup final’ for the Republic of Ireland. The Irish, who lead Euro 2020 qualifying Group D, have a play-off at home to second-placed Denmark at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on November 18. It’s the final game in the group for the Irish, though Denmark have another match. Both teams are on 12 points and the top two go through to next year’s finals. Ireland could have qualified on Tuesday night but they failed to fire in the first half of a 2-0 defeat to Switzerland. Haris…

Traore is like a new signing for Wolves – Thommo

Andy Thompson believes Wolves flier Adama Traore is like a new signing. Traore has benefitted from extended coaching on the training ground with boss Nuno Espirito Santo and his team and has started to look a different player this season. The 23-year-old is harnessing his stunning pace to add an end product – as we saw with his two goals to beat Manchester City. Traore’s improvement has come despite him operating in three positions – right wing back or a four or five-man midfield, striker or right-sided forward of a front three. Thompson made a career out of being versatile…

Nuno – Cutrone will pack a punch for Wolves because he’s a ‘fighter’

Nuno Espirito Santo believes Patrick Cutrone will more than punch his weight for Wolves – because he is a fighter. The 21-year-old striker will cost the club up to £20m from AC Milan and has been backed by fans, who have come up with their ‘pizza and pasta’ song for the Italian. Cutrone has scored just once in 14 appearances for Wolves so far, featuring seven times in the Premier League, six in Europe and once in the Carabao Cup. His only strike came in the 5-2 home defeat to Chelsea, but only five of those games have been starts.…

Vallejo says he chose Wolves over ‘many offers’

Jesus Vallejo has revealed he chose Wolver over ‘many offers’ after switching from Real Madrid on loan. The 22-year-old defender is on a season-long loan from the Bernabeu giants. Vallejo is still finding his feet in the Premier League, and has only made one appearance in the top flight, in the 5-2 home defeat to Chelsea. His other appearances have been three games in the Europa League and the Carabao Cup penalty shootout win over Reading. The former Eintracht Frankfurt loan centre back says he has settled in well to life in Wolverhampton, and chose the club despite lots of…

Wolves sell out of tickets for Cup derby at Villa

Wolves are guaranteed one of their biggest followings in recent years after selling out of tickets for the Carabao Cup derby at Villa. All 5,346 tickets have been eagerly snapped up by fans, who will be housed behind the goal in the North Stand at Villa Park on Wednesday, October 30 (7.45pm). The fourth-round tie was set up after Wolves beat Reading on penalties after a 1-1 draw at Molineux, while Villa beat Brighton 3-1 away after overcoming Crewe 6-1 in the second round. Wolves took a sell-out allocation of 34,000 supporters to Wembley for the FA Cup semi-final against…

Thommo: Wolves fans are being punished over UEFA ruling

Wolves favourite Andy Thompson believes the club’s fans are being punished rather than Slovan Bratislava’s supporters over UEFA’s controversial ruling. Bratislava lost an appeal over the Europa League game against Wolves on October 24 being staged behind closed doors after racist chanting marred a match against Greek side PAOK in August. But despite the crowd ban, up to 15,000 people could be admitted to the stadium as accompanied children of 14 and under are allowed. Wolves have been taking 1,000 fans or more to European games but they have been allowed just 200 tickets, priced at £55 each, for the…

Wolves legend Bully honoured with tribute from Ian Rush

Wolves fans came to salute their idol, but fittingly, Steve Bull was honoured with a tribute from his own hero. More than 20 years after hanging up his boots, supporters still sing his name, and on Friday night, it was Bully’s turn to take the plaudits from someone he looked up to – Liverpool legend Ian Rush. A video tribute from the Anfield goal machine was the fitting endpiece and pinnacle of an emotional night in the third of the outstanding They Wore The Shirt series superbly organised by the tireless Steve Plant, after similar annual events honouring Derek Parkin…
