Wolves captain focused on Europe, not ticket requests at Anfield

Conor Coady claims he has had ‘millions’ of ticket requests for Liverpool’s Premier League title decider against Wolves – but all he’s focused on is hitting 60 points and getting into Europe. Liverpool must beat Wolves at Anfield on Sunday and hope leaders Manchester City draw or lose against Brighton to end their 29-year wait to be champions again. Wolves are guaranteed seventh spot but still need a favour from City to beat Watford in the FA Cup final a week on May 18 to end their 39-year stretch for European football. Coady, who supported Liverpool as a boy and…

Coady: Liverpool will Kop no favours from Wolves

Captain Conor Coady insists all his loyalties are with Wolves this weekend and there will be no favours to The Kop. The Scouser and boyhood Liverpool fan spent five years full-time at Anfield as an academy scholar and young professional. Now 26, Coady made his Reds debut in the Europa League in 2012-13 before making his Premier League bow as a substitute for Philippe Coutinho in a 3-1 win at Fulham almost six years ago to the day – his only two appearances for his hometown club. In an unforgettable week which has seen Liverpool and Tottenham reach the Champions…

Hail Stowell, the man who made Schmeichel – Don

Wolves favourite Mike Stowell has been hailed as the man who has ‘made’ Kasper Schmeichel. Schmeichel has this week made his 300th League appearance for Leicester City in a game where he was powerless to stop Vincent Kompany scoring a ‘worldie’ past him from 30 yards to give Manchester City the edge in the race for the Premier League title with a vital 1-0 win at the Etihad. After eight years at the King Power Stadium, the 32-year-old Denmark international is recognised as one of the best goalkeepers in the top flight. During the whole of that time, Stowell, 54,…

Farmer recalls Wolves’ greatest comeback

The two amazing Champions League semi-finals this week have proved football’s incredible capacity for comebacks. Liverpool’s 4-0 win over Barcelona after being 3-0 down in the first leg will never be forgotten. Their opponents in the Champions League final, Tottenham, have joined them at the pinnacle of club football competition after retrieving a 2-0 deficit on the night against Ajax to triumph 3-2 to set up only the second all-English final. These moments are now marked indellibly in fans’ memory banks forever. One such moment in older Wolves supporters’ recall is the 1958 FA Youth Cup final. Trailing 5-1 from…

Nuno is Wolves’ best signing – Thelwell

Kevin Thelwell has hailed Wolves’ best signing – and it’s none of the stars who have performed so impressively on the pitch to clinch seventh spot in the Premier League. Wolves’ sporting director is convinced head coach Nuno Espirito Santo is the biggest reason why the team has made such rapid strides over the last two years. When the Portuguese took over in May 2017, Wolves had just finished 15th in the Championship. Since then the transformation has been nothing short of astonishing as Wolves won the Championship in his first season in charge and are now confirmed as the…

Liverpool expect to have three major players back to face Wolves in the Premier League title decider this Sunday. Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino sat out of the historic 4-0 win over Barcelona on Tuesday night which put the Reds into the Champions League final, while Alex Oxlade Chamberlain was rested.

Gulf between Wolves and Fulham down to signings – Murphy

Danny Murphy believes the gulf between his former club Fulham and Wolves has been shown in their recruitment. Last summer Fulham appeared to give themselves a great chance of prospering in the Premier League by spashing out £100m on a host of signings, while Wolves attracted some criticism at the time for not pushing the boat as much, spending a more cautious £70m. Since then Wolves have snapped up Jonny Otto for £18m and have agreed a club record £32m deal to sign 17-goal top scorer Raul Jimenez on a permanent deal from Benfica. But just a year after both…

Wolves star Raul speechless at fans’ reaction to first season in England

Wolves striker Raul Jimenez admits he has been left speechless at the ‘amazing’ support he has received from the stands in his first season at Molineux. The 17-goal top scorer, who celebrated his 28th birthday on Sunday, will become the £32m club record signing on July 1 and has already become a new idol to follow famous Wolves number nines such as Roy Swinbourne, Jimmy Murray, Derek Dougan, John Richards, Andy Gray and Steve Bull. Fans sing their ‘Si Senor’ song in his honour and hundreds have worn Mexican wrestling masks, sombreros and Mexican flags to games. “I have no…
