JR: ‘This is Wolves’ best ever chance of winning the FA Cup’

John Richards believes Wolves might never get a better chance of FA Cup glory as they prepare to face Manchester United. The legendary Molineux goal king is also urging Wolves to give the fans the Wembley dream they want – and help heal some hurt he still feels. Wolves look to have the best opportunity to get to Wembley in a cup in decades, with United in the sixth round on Saturday night standing between them and a first semi-final in the competition since 1998. Richards played in four FA Cup quarter-finals for the club, winning three, all after replays,…

Wolves boss Nuno: Now let’s help Costa like we did Traore

Nuno Espirito Santo insists he will not ‘abandon’ Helder Costa as he pledged to help him return to form like he has with Adama Traore. Traore, 23, made a surprise return for only his seventh Premier League start in the recent 2-0 win against Cardiff, replacing Matt Doherty at right wing back as Nuno sprang five changes following the 1-0 defeat at Huddersfield. Against the Bluebirds the £18m club record signing had arguably his best game for Wolves to date. Now Nuno has revealed how he is hoping a similar approach can work with the out-of-sorts Costa. The 25-year-old started…

Parkes and Pierce: Our Wolves keeper verdict for United

Former Wolves goalkeepers Phil Parkes and Gary Pierce believe Nuno Espirito Santo is right to stick by John Ruddy for the FA Cup quarter-final against Manchester United. Ruddy, 32, is set to face Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s in-form side at a sell-out Molineux in the sixth round tie on Saturday night. Rui Patricio, Wolves’ regular first choice, will make way, just as he has done in all six previous cup games this season, including four in the FA Cup. Parkes and Pierce shared the goalkeeping duties at Molineux from 1973 when Pierce was signed from Huddersfield to when Parkes departed for…

Ex-Wolves striker Ndah reveals his mental torment following injury hell

George Ndah admits he became severely depressed at Wolves as he opened his heart in a powerful message about mental health. Now 44, the popular former striker also admitted experiencing financial trouble after his career ended at the age of 32 when he could take no more following years of injury hell. Ndah’s frustrations at his lengthy spells out of the game were well documented at the time. But little was known of the mental torture they induced until he featured in a documentary with current Burton Albion forward Marvin Sordell where both talked about their own battle with mental…

Ex-Wolves keeper takes the reins again at Leicester

Mike Stowell has been appointed caretaker manager at Leicester City for a fifth time. The 53-year-old Foxes goalkeeping coach and first-team coach has been temporarily promoted again, this time with fellow first-team coach Adam Sadler, following the sacking of Claude Puel. Puel, 57, who was in charge for 16 months, was dismissed after Saturday’s 4-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace which left Leicester 12th in the Premier League. Speculation had been rife for months that the Frenchman’s future was in doubt, with stories of players being unhappy with his distant management style and difficulties adapting to his possession-based game. Stowell,…

Neutrals side with Wolves as Bournemouth players slammed

Neutral fans have criticised Bournemouth after the Cherries’ two controversial penalties in the 1-1 draw against Wolves. Referee Roger East awarded Eddie Howe’s side two spot kicks, first when Josh King fell following the slightest marginal contact from Joao Moutinho, then when Ryan Fraser fell outside of the box. King scored the first one to put Bournemouth ahead but missed the second. East’s performance also became a major talking point after he turned down a penalty shout from Wolves when defender Chris Mepham clearly handled. The official also showed Bournemouth midfielder Jefferson Lerma only a yellow card for elbowing Moutinho…
