Wolves Vs Swansea City Preview

For years I’ve bleated on about putting together a cup run to see Wolves play at Wembley.

But that was before the age of Nuno.

Now the easiest route is finishing the job in the league and waiting for Chelsea to take up temporary residence in the national stadium.

It would be nice to get there the old fashioned way of course. However, our promotion push is so intoxicating I’m struggling to summon the appetite for anything else.

This will be battle of the reserves and I doubt either set of fans will be too distraught whatever the result, beyond the 20,000 or so who are going along.

Swansea

I liked Carlos Carvalhal’s thoughts on their January transfer business – ‘We have money for sardines and I’m thinking lobster. I will look to the lobsters and sea bass, but if not we must buy sardines. But sometimes the sardines can win games.’

The sardines he inherited after replacing Paul Clement won him his first game at Vicarage Road to temporarily lift them off the bottom of the table.

They were then comfortably beaten by Tottenham, but I doubt that fixture was part of his master escape plan.

Scoring goals has been their problem. With only 13 in 22 matches, it’s little surprise they’ve only managed 4 victories.

Losing Llorente and Sigurdsson was the catalyst for another tough campaign. They brought in the highly rated Renato Sanches from Bayern Munich (who should have been a lobster) but the youngster simply hasn’t performed.

Wolves

I was trying to put together a completely different eleven to the win over Brentford, but I think Batth’s suspension might have scuppered that.

Someone has to play at the back. It might as well be Coady as he looks like he’s coasting through every game.

I’m also assuming new signing Rafael Mir is eligible. If he is, he might as well play and get a soft introduction.

Price, Marshall and Hause have been out in the wilderness lately but are all very handy. It’s not impossible to imagine they could all leave in January depending on who else comes in.

I think Costa has been lucky to get the minutes he’s been given lately. Bright should have shared some of those opportunities. Both should get a start this time.

Predictions

No PL points up for grabs in the cup, so all just for fun.

I’m assuming both teams will play the second string and I think our second string is pretty useful.

Swansea left players like Routledge, Fer and Bartley out of their team against Spurs so they’ve also got a bit in reserve.

But as we’re at home and tails are up, I think we might dig it out.

2-1.

Up The Wolves!

    I’m being pressured in the prediction league by you lot and it’s flippin close, so I’m inclined to sit back and see what my closest competitors come up with before throwing my own hat into the ring….

    But sod that.

    I have massive confidence in whatever team Nuno puts out for our Saturday afternoon matinee of marauding menace, and hereby state that the score will be somewhere in the region of Wolves 3, Swansea…not.

    I don’t want us to humiliate the taffs cos I knew one from there called Tony Williams and he was a good business ‘mate’ to me…but I hope he’s got something else to occupy his mind on Saturday cos Wolves devour swans…

    It’s gonna be good.

    I have a different perspective on this Thomas. I think with so much daylight between us and 2nd place in the league, I’d be tempted to field strong teams in the cup and try to go all the way. Rest some tired key players by all means, but not sure I’d go out of my way to just field the reserves. Let’s go for the double!

      I agree entirely GoWolves.. We want to win every game, and a FA Cup run is perfectly feasible, given our quality and strength in depth. Playing a team of reserves is usually a sign that says, ‘this match is not important to us’. Actually Swansea are surely needing to ‘concentrate on the league’.
      I expect Nuno to put out a side to win, not sure myself about throwing Mir on so soon, but looking forward to a good match.

    Wolves 6- 0 Swansea, got to go one better than Clive so added his score together.

    Nice to see Rafa have a run out, so I’d be tempted to surround him with his fellow first team mates and let the dogs off the leash. They then have a week to rest, (luxury of late)

    Can’t see the same result this time round. Nuno’s talk of the wolf pack means the reserves should be raring to impress.

    4-0 for symmetry’s sake.

  10. Will be Nuno’s chance to see in a competitive game who to keep and who to get out so I expect lots of the fringe players to get a run out but think we will have too much for the Swansea reserves .I also hope he will have the odd gem on the bench from the first team to get us the result if needed .Why not have a good cup run for confidence income and to give the fringe players a reason to stay tuned in .

    Think Mir will be on the bench – if at all – and can’t see him starting. Bright up top and Gibbs-White on the left – the rest exactly as Thomas has put.

    How amazing that our second string look so good and too strong for the Swansea sardines. The world is our lobster.

    Wolves 3 Swansea 0

    Bright to get two.

    Will be there accompanied by Rhys Lightning and his lad Tom. Will pop into the NBB hopefully to see Witley and no doubt several other bloggers including StuWolf who has my Barnsley tickets.

    I wonder if Cav is up to a full game seeing he only played bit parts in the last 3 games. In which case a front 3 of Cav, Costa and Mir would be something to really look forward to. And I won’t be surprised to see a couple of the big boys on the bench just in case seeing there is a week’s gap till the next game anyway. Our boys should be able to deal with it though as I can see Swansea resting their A team to survive. Just for fun prediction of a 3-0 win to the Mighty Wolves.

Had we managed to win the shootout at the Etihad I think we could have been planning trip to Wembley next month, but it wasn’t to be. Still onto the FA Cup and Swansea stand in our way! I don’t think it would be an upset if we won because I think we’re favourites anyway. Carlos Carvalhal was put in charge for next season’s promotion push in my opinion so I think in their minds their already down. Wolves to win 2 – 0 and into the 4th round we go

  20. As much as I enjoy the cup and would love a cup run, I must concur that the league comes first, this year at least. Some of our players look leggy, despite their continuing superb performances, and need and deserve a week off.
    So in come the reserves and for many other clubs at our current level, these reserves would be a pretty good first eleven. I’d love to see Mir make an appearance and Price, Hause, Marshall et al will be itching to show what they can do. Also be nice to see MGW take the stage.
    Swansea will play their reserves for sure. They have much bigger fish to fry but I feel, like their fish, they’re in for a battering.

  22. Bedford Wolf (my wife's a quarter Portugeuse y'know) says:

    Saw this article on a Villa fans site yesterday. The said ‘journalist’ Steve Wollaston from the Birmingham Mail, who is allegedly a Sandwell Shadow Dweller, is apparently sounding off about what Villa need to do and someone recalled this article the same journalist wrote about Wolves just after the end of last season. It is priceless. Shows just how wrong someone can be if they try hard enough!

    WHY PAUL LAMBERT IS WAY MORE IMPORTANT TO WOLVES THAN JORGE MENDES
    The rumours that Paul Lambert is considering his position at Molineux should have every Wolves fans scratching their heads in disbelief.

    If it happens, it is a disaster for a club trying to regain some composure after yet another period of erratic instability.

    His troubled and well-documented spell at Villa was a marriage made in hell, and he was forced at times to take the fall for a hierarchy who were steering the club in all kinds of wrong directions.

    Lambert is willing to work with Jorge Mendes, make no mistake about that, this is a man who can bring in players like Helder Costa.

    He is also a man who can bring in the array of dross, players that Lambert is having to try and ship out.

    Is that enough though to justify the obvious damage that the foreign implosion actually did at Molineux?

    Lambert knows the value of Ben Marshall and Andi Weimann, he knows more of these players are needed throughout the team in order to slowly rebuild this Wolves team.

    Another batch would destabilize the progress Lambert has made since taking over.

    Wolves don’t have a team anywhere near capable of competing for Championship honours.

    Now I am saying that it would be tantamount to disaster if they let him [Paul Lambert] leave now.

    There is no doubt in my mind that when the 2017-2018 season kicks off, Wolves will be in a very strong position to challenge for promotion.

    That will only happen with, Paul Lambert.

    Not with a yes man with no Championship credentials.

    I saw a magnificent photograph in the press the other day and it made me think.

    Oh yes. It happens occasionally.

    There are a myriad things that go to make a successful football team.

    Players, managers, owners, backroom staff, coaches, tea ladies, supporters, Mendes, Wolfie, stadium, history, not being in sandwell, getting the rub of the green occasionally…..

    I could go on.

    There are times – so rare – but they can happen, when just about all of those disparate parts come together to make a perfect whole. (Not hole – I’ve finished speaking about them down the road).

    For us, that time is now.

    We have to cherish it while it’s here. Who knows how long it will last.

    Football’s a funny old game.

    And the picture that started me thinking?….

    Their reserves couldn’t do a worse job, so give them a chance in the league and let the under performing “stars” try and salvage some pride at The Mol.
    Whoever they put out are going to get creamed, anyway, so moot point really.

    I was at that 0-4 friendly drubbing by Swansea at the start of last season, too, Marian. KJ had been given the push the day before and poor old Rob Edwards was trying to pick up the pieces. I remember seeing Jeff and co in the Directors’ box as well as some excessively sharp suits….belonging to Zenga, Mendes and their bag-carriers. Zenga left well before the end. Bit strange when he was presumably assessing the players he’d soon be managing.

    But that’s all history of course. Past pain makes current pleasures all the sweeter.

    Last time our reserves got a run out they stopped Man City from scoring for 120 minutes, and even nearly won it with several decent chances.

    Irrespective of exactly who wears the Old Gold tomorrow, Nuno has the squad so well drilled that I can’t see this goal-shy Swansea lot breaking down our team too many times, and I’m equally sure we will be able to find a way through their porous defense and into the next round.

    Would love to see the new lad get a run out, but I suppose that will depend on whether Nuno trusts him enough to carry out his instructions, or if he’d rather work with him on the training ground for a couple of weeks till he learns the Wolves way.

    Tricky one. If we were well down the table I would fancy us to win easily. But both teams have identical aims, namely to be in the PL next season. This takes precedence over any cup run. Plus Batth suspended probably buggers up Nuno’s cup line up. I expect both teams to put out half-reserve/half-first team squads. Could be a good time to give Rafa Mir a run-out and share game time with Bright. I expect Costa to have virtually a whole match as he seemed gutted to come off against Brentford, and this could be the opportunity of playing him back into form. With the PL next season uppermost in mind at both clubs, tomorrow it will come down to whose semi-reserve team is the best on the day. For me Wolves at 2-0.

    My local club Chelsea will still be at Stamford Bridge next season. No fresh news on the temporary move to Wembley. I detect a slight softening of plans for a complete rebuild at the Bridge. There is some talk of a piecemeal rebuild without actually moving. There’s also even talk of the Russian owner selling up. Maybe the Chinese are sniffing around?

    Someone in the Chelsea set-up suggested to me that we will need a top level goal keeper for the PL. I’ll trust Nuno to know being an ex-keeper himself.

      This is no game to Fosun this is a full on assault at producing a truly world class football club and we have to have a state of the art proper stadium to do it in.
      The main factor though will be cost. Its far too expensive to rebuild places , loose revenue while doing it and at the end still have something that isn’t good enough.
      Just down the Stafford road no great distance away are acres of waste land that could be used for that very purpose and as we all walk past the old MOLINEUX to the CHAMPIONS LEAGUE GAME at the NEW MOLINEUX we can doff our caps in respect and remember the good old days.

    There are many places that would suit a new stadium, indeed the Goodyear site is enormous, there is also land out in Steelhouse lane that is huge, it has access to the tram and a few main road links with the Birmingham New road and the Bilston road, it is as close to the railway as Molineux if I’m honest.
    These things are not drawn up on the back of a fag packet and you can bet the Council have already been involved, the fact that the Metro is being extended to the Station speaks volumns to me.
    “The New Molineux” didn’t Lorrie van Pimple say, “if we moved the name would be important as the history because of has with it”

    FFS, the PL Dons will be crapping themselves, we’re breaking up the stranglehold.

    For me one of the great things about Wolves is that their historic ground is where football grounds should be: in the heart of the city. A walk from rail and bus stations, shopping centre, pubs and restaurants. Not some soulless retail/industrial park. Named for whichever corporation is currently putting up the most money. Never must the Wolves home be moved and Fosun need to know this. We need to respectfully let them know.

    The New Molineux has got to be better than The Fosun Stadium. As disturbing as it may seem at first reading I suppose I’ll eventually get used to the idea of a new footy mecca. But it’s semding shivers down the spine at the moment.
    As for this afternoon, got to go for a win though it’s going to be tight. 3-2.

      Morgans Plans were shite and still are. Morgans north bank is completely deviod of atmosphere, two tear stands are a no no. The new Mol’ sounds a good name for me and all the big clubs are moving or got plans to move. To the future and beyond !!

    We have to face the future.. if we are to be a mainstay PL team then we need the appropriate stadium..
    Good Access road and rail links means more attendance
    and state of the art ground can only be good for the future.

    If it’s the Fosun stadium so be it they have rescued us from
    hell…

      Spot on Steve Show……

      Without their overall input and undoubted influence Wolves would have continued to flounder. Yes it would be nice to stay at a redeveloped Molineux but……

      Whatever is decided in terms of our future home is fine by me….I could not care less whether it is at Molineux or another location. Real world and all that.

      After years of utter dross on the pitch and dreadful management off the pitch and apathy throughout the club our beloved Wolves are hitting the headlines and that is music to my ears and candy to my eyes.

      Long may it continue.

    New ground.

    I don’t see anything wrong with that.

    If I have any fond memories, they’d be for the old wooden ground. I don’t know if it’s because I used to sell the stuff but steel (and certainly concrete) doesn’t quite invoke the same sentiments as the old Waterloo road stand.

    I just hope it’s not so poorly designed this time. The amount of times I had to explain why they couldn’t build on what was already standing or why they’d never ‘fill in the corners’….drove me to drink (well, any old excuse)

    So, if Fosun are up for it, why not? Hopefully they’ll allow for standing areas like the Germans do and build a proper arena or colluseum where we can sacrifice teams from sandwell on a two year cycle.

    Just heard that ruby vinegre has had his chips….I’ve been waiting ages to get that in! Bloody refs have got it in for us at the moment.

    We’ll still flippin win!

  58. New ground.

    Next to motorway must me favourite logistically.
    New railway station(s) allow home and away fans quick/easy access in & out – no trouble. Even segregate car parks.

    Latest today from my mate, Asda are unhappy because they want to expand and there’s no room. Wolves in talks with them, so we could expand out that way, plans to build hotel and leisure facility at the same site like all other clubs.
    I like that plan, don’t know about the arena for slaughtering Shite fans, they’ve always been persecuted maybe we’d get in trouble, FFP and all that crap. I believe there is to be a naughty step and a lonely corner for bad boys though, so that’s Millwall dealt with if we get them in the cup in the future.

    Well, we should have won.

    Having said that, isn’t it a pleasure to watch Wolves at the moment.

    0-0, or 5-1, it’s still entertaining stuff.

    Didn’t really see Vinegre’s red card offence at the time but watching the highlights, I can’t really argue with it.

  61. First I’ve heard of this New Stadium then again I’ve been confined to the house for the last week. I’m torn I can see why a new build would be attractive to Fosun but throwing away over a hundred years of history.

    If you think it’s a logical step for Fosun Molinuex is so ingle de pickle dee Steve Bull stand built 1979, South Bank and Billy Wright around 2000 on wards and then the Stan Cullis 2013 it’s all a bitt of a mish mash.

    The thing that I would miss would be seeing St Peters Church in the back ground which it has done since Wolves moved there…….but to stand still is to regress and we’ve stood still for to many years..!

    Not too disappointed. Swansea played a side much closer to their strongest team than we did and yet we were by far the better team and could have been 3-0 up inside the opening 25 minutes but for their keeper. We will win the replay for sure.

    I thought N’Diaye was outstanding and our MoTM.

    Interesting no room for Zyro, Marshall or Price even on the bench which suggests all three may be shipped out soon?

    Nice to meet up with StuWolf, Witley & Son (Barry & Sean), London Wolves Loyal (Matt) and Newark Wolves (Ian & Sue) in the NBB before the game. Sounds like our mini-away day to Sunderland on 5/6 May might have two more members in Barry & Matt.

    Ian – post that picture of Nuno you took at the Novotel.

    Looking forward to Barnsley next Saturday when 12 or so Bloggers are descending on Yorkshire for another great away day.

    results all over the third round just show it’s ours for the taking ! when clubs play weakened teams they’re so vulnerable, and don’t even seem to care. Our team wasn’t much weakened – until Vinagre got sent off, and then we held our own, just like last time.

    the replay should be a cracker, and let’s hope for a nice draw in the Fourth round.
