- Sat, 27 Nov 2021 17:22:36 +0000: José Sá keeps Norwich at bay as Wolves secure draw at Carrow Road - Wolverhampton Wanderers | The Guardian
Wolves were able to hold off a late challenge from Norwich to secure a point in a goalless draw at Carrow Road. Dean Smith felt this was an improvement on the 2-1 home win over Southampton that kicked off his tenure last weekend. “We were probably fortunate to get an extra two points last week and probably unfortunate to lose a couple of points this week,” he said.
“I thought our overall performance was really good. They gave us problems in the first 20 minutes with the two players in the pockets but then we changed it and went a flatter three in midfield and I felt we dealt with that. When I first came in I said I wanted us to stop giving away big chances, which we did today. We restricted them to very few and I’m not sure Tim (Krul) has had much to do today and we created four big chances. On another day we win the game.”Continue reading...

Norwich’s hopes of surviving in the Premier League had been virtually written off three weeks ago. Two measly points from 10 games had many observers tipping them to eclipse Derby’s record low tally of 11 points from 2007-08. Victory against Brentford was not enough to save Daniel Farke’s job and his replacement Dean Smith began his reign with success against Southampton to raise hopes at Carrow Road. Norwich’s chances of extending their mini-renaissance face a stern test, however, against a Wolves side that have recovered from a sluggish start under Bruno Lage to emerge as genuine contenders for a European spot.

- Fri, 26 Nov 2021 00:01:13 +0000: Premier League: 10 things to look out for this weekend - Wolverhampton Wanderers | The Guardian
Manchester United travel to Chelsea under Michael Carrick, Leeds’ impressive young goalkeeper has another tough evening ahead and Newcastle have decisions to make
“Why are you playing Fred?” That’s the question Roy Keane wanted to ask while pinning Ole Gunnar Solskjær against a dressing room wall, and maybe Solskjær would have struggled to answer. But apparently Michael Carrick knows what Fred does well because the Brazilian was one of Manchester United’s best players in their midweek win at Villarreal, contributing intelligently to both of United’s goals and covering the left-hand side when in defensive mode. The question now is whether he will start against Chelsea, where containing Reece James should be an important part of the visitors’ game plan. Carrick also found uses for Donny van de Beek and Jadon Sancho when it had previously seemed United signed both without knowing why. Starting Sancho on the right may be the best way of exploiting the absence of Ben Chilwell. PD

- Mon, 22 Nov 2021 08:04:41 +0000: Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action - Wolverhampton Wanderers | The Guardian
Liverpool stepping up their title charge, Manchester United old boys scuppering Solskjær and Brighton letting it slip
It is a footnote to the weekend’s biggest story, but the final nail in Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s coffin was partly hammered in by four players who were at various points deemed not good enough for Manchester United. Ben Foster, Craig Cathcart, Tom Cleverley and Joshua King all made vital contributions to a Watford performance that brimmed with energy, intent and endeavour. United’s class of 2021 lacked all those qualities, and plenty more. They were simply overrun and, while Solskjær’s departure was both inevitable and correct, they might wonder whether a better engagement with the basics might have helped their old manager’s cause. After the final whistle Bruno Fernandes communicated to the away support that United’s players should take the brunt of their ire. In truth the blame for an unholy mess can be shared throughout the club, but Watford’s gang of old boys cast their successors’ efforts into stark relief. Nick AmesContinue reading...
- Sat, 20 Nov 2021 17:28:23 +0000: Raúl Jiménez bursts West Ham’s bubble for upwardly mobile Wolves - Wolverhampton Wanderers | The Guardian
Raúl Jiménez scored the only goal as Wolves brought West Ham’s winning run to an end with a well-earned victory. The Mexican forward struck his third goal of the season in the 58th minute having been teed-up by Daniel Podence, who had twice been denied by good Lukasz Fabianski saves earlier in the second half.
The visitors were left frustrated in their efforts to fight back as a run of four successive Premier League victories was halted with a first away defeat since April. Wolves moved to sixth place.Continue reading...
