Wolves Vs Brighton & Hove Albion Preview

I think we’re safe from relegation. That’s the only big plus to come out of last weekend.

For Blackburn to make up 11 points on us with only 15 left to play for (18 in our case) seems unlikely.

Add to that all the teams between us and the bottom three, most of whom have to play each other and it would take a horrible combination of results to send us down.

It would be nice to take matters into our own hands though and maybe even power into the top half.

I’d like to see us beat last season’s tally of 58 points too.

Brighton

The Seagulls are close. Very close. A win tomorrow won’t mathematically guarantee promotion but probably as good as.

I doubt Huddersfield will manage more than 86 points anyway so they’re probably home and dry.

Good for them I say. They’ve chipped away at the top six for years and deserve their chance in the Premier League.

Chris Hughton has proven himself a very good manager and shrewd additions like Glenn Murray and Anthony Knockaert have taken them on a stage.

I’d like to see them win the league ahead of Newcastle, but any sentiment obviously goes out the window tomorrow.

Wolves

I think Jon Dadi Bodvarsson is worth a start, particularly if Helder Costa doesn’t make it back.

But hopefully our star man will return and give us the best possible chance in a difficult looking fixture.

Paul Lambert might be tempted into ringing the changes after last weekend’s limp showing, but I’d prefer to keep the nucleus of the side that won five in a row.

Predictions

It’s fair to say that Brighton have established themselves at the top with a staggeringly good home record and solid but significantly less impressive away form.

They’ve won 10, drawn 5 and lost 5, scored 25 conceded 23. It’s still the second best away record in the league so perhaps it doesn’t inspire that much confidence.

The bookies have us at 15/8 for the win compared to the Seagull’s 11/8. If you’re brave enough to take a punt on the Wolves against the Championship leaders, these football betting tips might come in handy.

That said, a lot of their away matches are tight so we should be in the game. Sadly though, I expect their Championship wherewithal will win out.

1-2.

Up The Wolves!

    It was on a Good Friday that Wolves recorded their biggest ever league win, a 10-1 thrashing of Leicester City. We actually scored all 11 goals as theirs was an own goal by none other than Stan Cullis. A very good Friday indeed.

    So a mere 79 years later we are going to similarly thrash Brighton & Hove Albion ……………2-0.

    I hope that PL makes some changes this time. Ikeme (if fit or Burgoyne if not) for Lonergan, Williamson for Batth, Saiss for Evans, Costa and Cavaleiro for Gibbs-White and Dicko and maybe even Bodvarsson, now he has finally remembered how to score a goal, for Weimann.

    I will be there. Probably in the APV from 3pm.

        Now look, just because you are on the other side of the world where everything is upside down, back to front and inside out doesn’t mean you can be cheeky you young whipper-snapper you!

        Strangely enough when I was reading about the 10-1 win in my ‘Wolves – It Happened On This Day’ book I did think that one of BOG’s friends Malcolm, who we often meet up with before a game, is now 81 or maybe 82 so he would have been alive when that occurred back in 1938.

        When are you back in good old Eng-er-land?

      I agree Bedford. Home win.

      Nothing to play for so, typically, luck will be on our side. An early opener will bounce in off of JDB’s left arsecheek and the ref will be incompetent in our favour.

      Well done Brighton for securing promotion more or less.

    Realistically I don’t hold out much hope for tomorrow.

    But when have I ever been realistic?

    Chris Hughton is my sort of manager and has done brilliantly with a team that was on the verge of extinction not so long ago but now looks destined for the place that we are all desperate to get to.

    I think a draw would be a very decent result for us, so that’s what I’m going to predict.

    On another subject:-

  4. Like you, Thomas, I retain faith in the basic team that did so well throughout March. Rumour has it that Costa will play so that exciting front four of Costa, Cav, Weimann and Marshall reunited could well swing the match our way.
    We all know our midfield and defensive deficiencies but I don’t see anyone currently waiting in the wings who are worthy of replacing the usual suspects. Brighton too have some dangerous forwards and if both teams go for it, it should be a cracker of a game.
    Famous last words.

    Yeah I think 3-2 too with Cav and Costa playing.

    Been thinking about what Jeff was saying about improving the pre-match entertainment.
    I love the idea of turning off the lights when the players are in the tunnel, then leave it like that for 5 mins whilst the crowd get excited, then start playing ACDC Thunderstruck (still with the lights off), and when it gets to the chorus the noise will be deafening and they could start doing that Mexican wave thing with the lights, with some flame throwers on the sides of the pitch. The opposition would be bricking it coming out to that cauldron of noise, then the music could switch to Hi Ho Silver lining for a bit.

    I’d prefer the Liquidator, but understand the divisiveness of it with the swearing. I remember as a kid in the 90’s the roof of the Stan Cullis used to shake, the atmosphere would be that stirred up. Opposition players used to say how frightening it was to come out to Molineux with it.

    Hi, Oliver that sounds good to me, need to get some decent ales (and food) at the right temperature and price to encourage people into the ground earlier, but it looks as if Fosun and Jeff are going to do that. Would prefer Burgoyne in goal and Costa/Cav/Weimann and Marshall up front, think as usual we will put up a good show against a top team and will go for a narrow win on what hopefully should be a cracking game

    Any team with a….n in their name is worthy of nothing but scorn and derision!
    Dont care where they are in the league, how good they have been all season, or how much others dont want Newcastle to win the title, I want Wolves to win tomorrow.
    Problem is, if we do, Lambert will think our squad is good enough for next season!!
    Literally a no win situation.
    But, like my usual, accurate predictions, I feel a 5-1 thumping is on the cards.

    Like you, Doogle, I get the Blog in my e mail at least an hour after it has been published, but I’m not one to complain or be controversial, I put it down to me being 4000 miles away.

  12. CHEESEBURGER OF DEATH says:

    So last Saturday it was Bristol City and they are one of our favourite opponents – until it all went tits up. Tomorrow it’s Brighton and we rarely beat them. So a 5-1 win it is then! In order for Brighton to secure the points required for promotion I forsee that they will probably bring Brighton pier with them and attach it to Mander House to make them feel at home. This won’t wash with the multitude of Wolvo seagulls who gather around the subway and eat left over hot dogs and chips. These seagulls will undoubtedly be rather angry with the pier hanging around Mander House because they will sense Brighton seagulls have been around it and done a shit on it so will savagely attack the pier until it collapses like me at around 2am after a Wolves away trip to London. The sight of the pier being pulverised by Wolves seagulls will make the Brighton players sad and they won’t feel like playing any more and this will give us the edge. So a good game in store. It’s Bank Holiday. It’s beer. It’s Wolves. what could go wrong ? Draw 1-1.

    Not optimistic about our chances tomorrow. Brighton are a decent side with a never say die attitude.
    Wolves can beat them and anyone else in this division, that’s the frustrating and annoying thing about them.
    Hopefully Costa will be back, either on the bench or starting. Ikeme is still out with his dodgy hamstring.
    If we get stuck into them from the kick-off we might ‘do’ them.

    I doubt it though.

    Congratulations to Brighton who have been the nearly men over the last few seasons regarding promotion but it looks like this season it’s all but secured hopefully they will have to wait a week or to longer. It’s going to be a cracker of a game, they have a good away record but do concede goals and if Costa is playing, we are capable of scoring goals so no nil nil bore draw tomorrow. Hope we can put on a good show and edge them out by a single goal.

    Brighton are deservedly going to get promotion after steadily building for a few years now so this could be a great test to see how far off the pace we are for a top six (top two?) challenge next season.

    So I would like to see Lambert play what he considers to be best eleven tomorrow (injuries permitting) and really go for it to see how good (or not) we really are and then use the remaining five games to give some starts to the likes of Saiss, Enobakhare and other fringe players as well as some of the other kids like Wilson to see if they can play more of a part next year. Almost use these five games as the start of our pre-season before the necessary summer clear out.

  19. Back home, still feeling let down by inept display I watched at Ashton Gate. I’m indifferent to who plays it’s HOW they play that matters. The teams who reach the
    Premier League and stay there have all got something in common
    .. tight defence and the ability to pass to their own shirts with a high rate of success…Oh and a handful of genuinely talented players.

    I really hope PL prioritizes method over results for these last few games so the players who start next season are clearer on HOWThey play.. and also the strength and energy they need to demonstrate for 90+ minutes. Dangerous Dave isn’t my favorite wolf but last week he was the only one I could see still going full
    Tilt at the end of the game .

    Game on TV so will get to see for myself if PL takes my advice

    A draw likely but I need points to move up prediction league so will go for upset home win

    I remember the corresponding match last season – we arrived at half time and got to our seats just after the Coady sending off.

    We need a win, if only so Wolves can still be in a chance of overtaking Cardiff. I have a £5 wager with a work colleague as to which team finishes ahead. I hope they do get stuck into it, especially after last week’s performance.

    If like me you have Sky tv but not Sky Sports you might want to tune in to Sky Sports Mix as the Wolves match is on for free there. Saves me buying a day pass!

    Congratulations to Brighton for hanging in there, season after season. I’m a Chelsea STH and I look forward to seeing little Brighton in action at mighty Chelsea next season. I remember our first season in the Championship after relegation from the PL in 2012. Brighton were looking for promotion then. We got demotion, and I was at Brighton for the 2-0 that sent us down to League One. As someone above has alluded, they don’t have a single stand-out player (like Costa), but they have a collection of experienced players of playoffs standard.

    Our old failing of losing to relegation zone teams came back to haunt us last week. Our one, faint, mathematical chance of reaching the playoffs fizzled out miserably. We’re better than that, as we should prove conclusively tomorrow.

    If Costa hasn’t already signed a pre-contact with a PL team, I think he will play tomorrow ‘cos the match is on TV and that’s a great shop window. If he has signed, he may have played his last match for us, in which case he might call in sick with a headache. With Costa playing we might win 3-2. Without him, Brighton to win 2-1. I think I will have to split the difference and go for 2-2.

    If it s the same team that didn’t turn up against Bristol City them we could be on the en of a mauling.

    I would be surprised if Costa plays if he does I wouldn’t bet against it being his last game in A Wolves shirt for the home support, I believe he will be sold probably Mendez doing the pushing but if Mendez has Wolves interest at heart as Jeff is trying to have us believe he would be telly Costa he has time on his side and to give us one more season………I doubt that’s the case though……in Mendez’s world and Fosun’s for that matter money and profit talk.

    Congratulations to the real Albion on their impending promotion after being the bridesmaid in recent seasons.
    As usual head and heart are battling away over the prediction. Last occasion I went for a Wolves loss we won! Reverse psychology rules ok.
    So based on this rather tenuous logic I go for a Brighton victory by 3 – 1.
    We will be in Yates, Queens Square at 3pm for some grub as the usual Thai and Italian haunts close at 2.30.
    Last time we dined in Yates we scoffed sausage and mash with mushy peas which was actually delicious – especially as it was two for the price of one which suited our tight fisted outlook on life and washed down with Guinness as I ain’t driving.
    Suggest we go for 0-0-10 to entertain the watching Sky audience. Well we have tried every other bloody formation I can think of.
    Football used to be such a simple game when we had 2 full backs and 3 half backs and 5 forwards – better known as the WM formation.
    Now we need a maths degree to work out the permutations when all is needed is to stick the bleeding pill into an oblong shape bounded by three planks, measuring 192 square feet with a net fastened on to stop the ball smacking some geezer in the gob behind the goal more times than the other eleven chumps on the other side.
    Is it me?
    To those at the Mol tomorrow have a great day.
    To those at home or in the pub enjoy your chocolate eggs (can’t say Easter anymore in case I offend somebody – I tell you this country really is stark raving mad) and give us poor sods a thought on the long drive home if we lose.
    Happy Easter to all Wolves fans – whoops please let me know if I have offended you!

    Overjoyed if we win, more than happy with a point

    But like a lot of others, good to see Brighton go up

    And fair okay to the owners for keeping faith with the manager. How many that are desperate for Premier money, would have ditched the manager before now, with them being so close over the last few seasons.

    Didn’t some suggest Chris coming here, with our manager merry go round, at one time?

    Absolutely agree that this should be a cracker today. I think and hope that we will be back on form today. Brighton are a good side and we have done well against good footballing sides in recent weeks. I think there will be some fans of other championship sides watching this and feeling grateful that it has taken us so long to get into our stride. Would like to see Wilson on the bench and getting a run out. I will be making a real effort to mentally log all that the mighty Helder does today as it may be a memory to call on in the future.

    Please Fosun get rid of DB and that excuse for a keeper who tried but failed to play today

    Our defensive coaching is a joke …under any sort of pressure we are incapable of passing the ball to a gold shirt… they are constantly out of position and seem to never be able to read a game… two players challenging for the ball and leaving wingers free what the f….k goes on at that training ground.
    Get your own coaches in pl cud the lot you have are shite

    Well, you can’t fault the effort.

    It’s just the rest that we fall down on.

    Brighton look a decent side but the main difference between us and them is a striker who can take his chances.

    At half time the chap behind me launched into a torrent of abuse against a particular Wolves player, insisting he be replaced at the break as he was effing useless. Midway through the second half he unleashed more abuse but this time against the whole team culminating with “the only one who’s any good is………” – yes you’ve guessed it, the self-same player he’d been insisting be replaced less than half an hour earlier.

    In many ways that sums up our season. Jekyll and Hyde.

    Brighton deserved to win for sure but I feel if they are the league leaders then the standard is low and God help them next season in the Money League where they will surely be so much cannon fodder and instantly return to the Championship.

    For us I saw confirmation that Lonergan is hopeless – not being able to kick or catch a ball and having decidedly floppy hands (I was going to say limp wristed but given the opposition I didn’t want to come across as homophobic) are surely serious failings for a goalkeeper? Equally confirmation that Danny Batth is awful, Matt Doherty is not a left back, Dave Edwards is a headless chicken incapable of playing in any recognised position (he reminds me of a boy I was at school with with was hopeless at football but in playground football at break time would run around all over the place getting in every else’s way), Weimann is not a wide player but neither is he a striker and Bodvarsson, whilst being an excellent target man and willing runner, will be lucky to ever score more than 5 goals in a season.

    Worryingly though others who I rate were also poor. Coady, Hause and Cavaleiro all fall into that category. The only two who for me emerged with even a smidgeon of credibility were Marshall and Saiss though both suffered by being surrounded by dross and mediocrity. Saiss in particular – who at least showed some quality and can pass the ball – had the look of someone thinking “I’m a footballer – get me out of here!”.

    I also am left wondering whether Paul Lambert is the man to lead us to the promised land. He appears hell bent on setting out a team of grafters, tries, workers and runners but, like many before him, doesn’t seem to be able to see the bigger, more beautiful and more expansive, picture. Is he the right man? I personally doubt it but feel he will be tasked with the job. For now at least.

    Oh well, the surge for the play-offs ends and we go from being served Sirloin….okay rump steak maybe, back to Noodle-Doodles and Alphabetti Spaghetti. The lads showed effort but I actually wonder if Brighton weren’t saving themselves for the Monday game, it was so easy for them.

    The painfully obvious conclusion (to me, anyway) is that we are so far off the pace of the top teams as to be quite scary. I don’t know how we close the gap because I doubt whether any of our players would get into their squad, let alone team, although a few of our guys did try! I mean, the amount of passes we made over pathetically short distances which found their way to the opposition’s feet was incredible. Who trains these guys? and to do what?

    An all round poverty-stricken performance from an all round incredibly wealthy bunch of young men. Roll on next season, it surely can’t be any worse……can it?

    • Bed, agree listening to game at work, what a bunch of average players, Brigthon just have experience all over the pitch player who have Championship and Premier league experience, Wolves have players that have experience of BEING relegated from the Premier and Championship……need I say more..!

    Be under No illusions…
    We want to be where Brighton are and we are a Billion Light years away…
    Jeff has gone back to China but if there was one game he should of watched it was this one…
    It showed the sheer gulf in class of where we need to be …
    Anyone thinking Brighton were not that good or the game was close… they beat us 2-0 without getting out of 2nd gear..
    Get your heads out of the sand….
    Its going to take us years to get to where they are at least 3 or 4 and under Lambert I doubt we will…
    We are clearly saving Costa from any injury so we sell at a profit…
    The rest of our squad are simply not good enough . they all know it.
    That is why they don’t want to get promoted because they will need to find new jobs elsewhere ..
    Mid table Championship suits them all… Safe…
    Cavaleiro cost 7 Million and isn’t fit to lace Sako’s boots…
    Costa has gone home for a holiday before his big money move to the championship…
    Fosun ?? what has changed…

  69. Lambert can call it what he wants, streetwise put simply Paul we are NOT good enough……..SIMPLES dress it up if you want to but …….this squad is NOT good enough neither WILL they ever be…….Jeff, Paul Kev, Larry, Mow.

    Does PL really really know this?.. he ain’t no ostrich..he can’t be …has he been told just get us up and we’ll buy within the £80M fpr and he said he could.?
    I think he’s restricted or he has to have loan Mendes players..re my favourite subject I thought when DB pulled his leg yeah he’s off because he’s injured but no,he came on second half and did his usual captain thing organising the back..He particularly just has to be replaced surely.?.Then there is the Dicko situation he Has to be replaced surely too..?then there is Coady he’s not good enough ..we need a no2 goalie it just goes on and on..
    Wolves as a team can pull it out of the bag but to be consistent (like Brighton) purely relies on better players and the big one….
    Leadership which rests again back with DB ..
    Williamson is that person but for the lottery regarding his injury proneness ..
    So there you have it a small amount of our problem ..
    We need prob 6 (key) players I’m wondering if we will achieve this..love Nige comments about Sako’s shoelaces ..
    I really do think at least he could be coming..
    As regards Costa..who knows…

    I watched that game in total disbelief yesterday.

    We matched Brighton right up to the point when Hause had a brain freeze, we were value for money right up to that point, the game was entertaining and Brighton did as stated above, looked nothing that special. They won’t stay long in the Premiership on that showing. I’m not being bitchy, it’s not sour grapes either because apparently we had 51% of the play. Now that’s been unheard of in this league at home in most matches for Wolves. The guys gave it their all, they tried to take them on, but, as pointed out above….. We are not good enough.

    We simply do not have the skilled players to take us out of this league, we don’t have any set style of play, can anyone on here tell me any pattern or shape we have, we can’t match other teams above or below us for stamina. We rolled over and died in the second half. Although we had 51% of the play every time Coady got the ball he panicked and passed it to Batth who in turn panicked and passed back to Lonnie Donergan who’s Dad apparently was a dustman, hence the rubbish catching, saving and distribution, he is domestic waste and should be binned.

    Hause who has displayed some good performances of late had obviously laced his boots up wrong yesterday, that’s the only explanation I can find for him constantly passing to Brighton, unless he had been bribed by the same guy as bribed the ref.

    Personally,I don’t think Lambert is the one to guide us to the promised land, I think he will be given an opportunity next season but it will only serve as a repeat of this season, swapping coaches after a few miserable results. He’s the coach of a team that are inept, unskilled, untalented and clueless and that is the big worry, because he’s the coach?.

    I for one cannot wait for the Bloggers bash, because that means there is only one more piece of garbbage to sit through at that point. More of the same next season will bring a change of coach so perhaps we may see the likes of Wenger at the Golden Palace, at least Iv’e heard of him before.

    Shit season, shit football, shit.

    By the way, if your’e still unsure about the blogges bash, get your bum in gear, get your name to Steve aka Brompton. It’s the only consistent thing to come out of this club of ours. Steve Daley, Willie Carr and Phil Parkes will be there so at least we shall see some talent at last, and Daley is an amazing after dinner speaker so sore ribs should be on the menu.

    Leeds on Monday so no time to sulk, 20,000 + Yorkshire twats will be taking the piss, so let’s get at em.

    COMB’s
