WFFS Blog: Season Review Part 10 – May

26 05 2010

Wolves finished the season with 38 points.

Party time! Wolves have survived!

Portsmouth 3-1 Wolves: Wolves missed a host of chances but were also comfortably beaten by the already relegated club. Wolves target Aruna Dindane put Pompey ahead before Kevin Doyle equalised. However, further goals from Michael Brown and Frederic Piquionne soured a great day out on the south coast. The away end was littered with inflatables and Wolves fans were celebrating the fact we had survived in the Premier League. 35. 

Wolves 2-1 Sunderland: What a way to finish off the season. Most of that national press labelled it as “Wolves beat nine-man Sunderland” but in truth Wolves would have probably won anyway. After Sunderland took the lead somewhat fortuitously, goals from top-scorer Kevin Doyle and Adlene Guedioura sealed Wolves’ fifth home win of the season. Michael Turner and Jack Colback were both dismissed late on after they both collected two yellow cards. 38.

Summary: Despite losing to Pompey that month has to be put down as a success as Wolves survived the drop. I just can’t wait for the fixtures to be released and for next season to start.

Wolves 2-1 Sunderland: HIGHLIGHTS

10 05 2010

Here’s the highlights from yesterday’s 2-1 win over Sunderland.





Wolves 2-1 Sunderland

9 05 2010

Wolves finished the season in 15th position.

Wolves finished their Premier League season with a convincing 2-1 win over Sunderland at Molineux.

An early Sunderland goal was cancelled out by Kevin Doyle who converted from the penalty spot after Matt Jarvis had been taken down by Alan Hutton.

New signing Adlene Guedioura completed the turnaround late on when his low left-footed drive beat Craig Gordon at his near post.

Wolves played well throughout and could have been ahead earlier if it was not for the impressive Gordon who did well to deny both player of the year Jody Craddock and Christophe Berra.

Man of the match: Kevin Doyle – Lead the line well for Wolves and controlled most of the balls put in his path. Worked his socks off and his standing ovation was well deserved when he was substituted. Oh yeah, he scored a penalty as well! Kevin Doyle is ******* magic da da da da da…

Flops of the match: Michael Turner and Jack Colback – both sent off for two bookable offences. Sunderland were playing badly as it was and they certainly didn’t help their teams cause.

Referee: Lee Mason – In my opinion he missed a handball in the build-up to Sunderland’s goal but other then that the Lancashire official had a sound game – 8.
