Brighton & Hove Albion Vs Wolves Preview

Sportingbet give us a 1 in 50 chance of staying up this weekend.

Henry Wolves

That’s generous.

Wolves have already been defeated 13 times away. Brighton have lost just 3 games at the Amex Stadium.

Wolves need a handsome winning margin. Brighton have conceded just 26 goals at home.

Wolves are relying on Barnsley and Peterborough to both lose. Between them, they’ve lost 3 times in their last 20 games.

Wolves need Palace to heavily dent Peterborough’s goal difference. The Eagles haven’t even won any of their last 9 league matches.

This isn’t just a mountain, it’s Everest.

The bookies very rarely get it this wrong. More odds available here.

Wolves

If Wolves do make the impossible possible, I think it will be because Palace discover some form and put Peterborough to the sword. We’ll have a job on our hands just to get the win. This is the team I’d send out:

Wolve team Brighton

Jamie O’Hara is again available for selection. It will be interesting to see if Saunders throws him straight back in. Sako must start in my opinion. He was sluggish in his late cameo last weekend, but one big effort from him could make all the difference.

There’s no point throwing the kitchen sink at them from the start and getting picked off. We need to get ahead and look to nick a few goals as the game progresses depending on events at Selhurst Park.

Predictions

9 people correctly thought we’d do the unthinkable and lose to Burnley.

Clive and Tetthenhall Wolf both got the scoreline spot on to scoop a double. The other 7 take a point.

As we move into the final game of the season, it’s still up from grabs at the top of the Prediction League:

Prediction League Top

Ash K is in the driving seat, but alf white is just a point back and still in the race. Steppenwolfe isn’t out of the game either but needs even more good fortune than Wolves to take the title. Lets have a clean fight lads with no tactical predictions. It’s more fun to make it interesting.

I will as always look to dig out some prizes. Apologies to Kowloon Wolf, last year’s winner who I’ve yet to post a prize to. I’ll visit the club megastore next week and pick up something special for everyone.

As for a final prediction, I’ll go for a narrow victory that ultimately sees us relegated.

2-1.

Up The Wolves.

      Who would have thought it would come to this 12 months is a long time in football, and here we waiting for the final nail in an other relegation. I still believe getting rid of McCarthy was right the only thing wrong was the timing, he should have been sacked after the 2.2 draw with Swansea in fact no he should have gone after the final game against Blackburn when we stopped up by the skin of our teeth and by the way I’m not talking in hindsight I as well as many of you were saying this at the very time. The big mistake Morgan made was not planning for that not having a list of candidates drawn up and again at the time I was screaming for O’Neil this I blogged at the time. Morgan has made some right decisions but at the wrong times, the new Stan Cullis Stand yes the ground could have done with a revamp I understand he wanted to put his stamp on the place especially being a builder but again the timing was wrong we were not established in Premier League the Gates didn’t warrant a bigger capacity yet. But we’re he really went wrong was the managers ie McCarthy and especially TC could carry on making a silk purse out of a pigs ear the team and the manager/ coach had run its course the tank was empty the grafting/ putting a shift in would not be enough any more the team needed major investment to maintain our Premier League Status this did not happen and as the say the rest is history stale game and went and Dean bless him his like a rabbit caught in the headlights of a ten ton truck as for the result 5.1 to the tesco

    How do you predict the totally unpredictable?
    What’s the secret Ash K?
    After last week the sensible prediction would be an absolute hammering but with this lot you can never tell.
    However, having read all the stories about splits and general unrest in the dressing room and the fact that relegation is a virtual certainty, I am going with my gut feeling that there isn’t enough heart in the team – let alone ability – to put up much of a fight.
    I just hope that after the inevitable happens things change big time at the Molineux.
    Moxey has to go, Saunders has to go, a Director of Football has to be brought in, together with either an experienced and proven Manager/coach or an eager and intelligent Player/manager who can rattle a few cages, get rid of the dross and inspire the young talent we have to bring a bit of pride back to the club.

    Meanwhile… Brighton 4-1 Wolves

      Whilst I can’t give away all my “secrets of tipping success” until the season is finished, my first rule of thumb is that the result is likely to maximise disappointment for Wolves fans.
      That would led me to tip a narrow Wolves win, which ultimately would be a tease when other results don’t go our way.
      Second rule is to take into account the facts on the ground – we are so poor at the moment that we can’t even raise our game to get that win to get the worst result (eg go down on goal difference)… therefore
      Brighton 2-Wolves 1

    Hard to believe this time last week I was so looking forward to watching my beloved Wolves v Burnley. Come 5pm the following day I wondered if I had some sort of mental illness that enabled me to sit through 95 mins watching a Wolves *team* struggle to manage even the basics of football.

    Now we are on the eve of what is probably our last match in the Championship for a season or two.

    I don’t believe in miracles and I don’t expect to see my first one tomorrow.

    Brighton to win 3-1

    At least my bunion won’t suffer this week 🙂

    P.S.

    I have just watch this programme which was on Channel 4 many years ago and it’s available via the 4 on demand website. It’s funny, sad and totally un-pc by today’s standards. However, certain parts of the programme reminded me of Wolves…

    I predict a Brighton 0 Wolves 2 victory.
    I predict a summer in which, Morgan, Moxey and Saunders will stay.
    They will reorganise, for Redrow’s benefit, into a Division Three side.
    Our owners will plead poverty, while Saunders will try to woe us with his verbal nonsense.
    There will be plenty of ‘goings’, (finance before football), and we will start the season as confused as a Saunders sentence.
    I do hope I am wrong….
    However Moxey does not have to go, nor does Saunders, nor does a director of football need to be appointed.
    These people care about their salary rather than Wolves.
    Also will Baath and Davis be here next season?
    At this moment in time there seems nothing to be optimistic about at Wolves.
    We are a laughing stock…
    On one site I read this:
    “Spillers were going to back Wolves but thought that ‘Winalot’ on their shirts was not appropriate”…
    Thanks Mr Morgan.

    Totally agree with theDOOGooder -a director of football is critical if we are to move forward. The academy players are the future now. Looking forward to Cassidy and Griffiths leading the line – oh for just half the impact messrs Bull and Mutch made!

    Let’s get this sorry season over with as quickly as possible, clear out the dross and look upwards instead of down.

    We’ll get absolutely thumped.

    We have a team of wimps led by as manager who is the biggest wimp of them all. I think back to Cardiff in 2003 and (for all the faults of that team) we had big game players. When the big occasion came, there wasn’t a team in the country that team couldn’t beat because they liked the spotlight. This team has no one of that type and Brighton will run riot.

    I want Saunders out.
    I want Moxey and Morgan to beg Owen Coyle on their hands and knees to take over.
    I want Graham Taylor installed as Director of Football.
    None of these things will happen.

    We needed to play the last game with the guts and spirit _ i_ _ a showed just the other day. We didn’t because that shower wouldn’t know how to string more than two passes together and need Sat Nav to find the goal.
    when a fight and performance were required they failed on all counts.

    Will probably get battered against Brighton, well i hope so, to fight now and get a result against all probability would be a slap in the face to every fan.

    Don’t get me wrong i would rather we stay up but ……..no i don’t think so.

    We need 3 results to go right for us. Thing is, I can’t see us winning our own game.

    I reckon, we could take the lead and still end up losing. Prove me wrong Wolves!

    Just followed the web-chat with Tim Nash on the E&S site.
    Another ‘Fans Parliament’ – vacuous questions answered by a journalist anxious not to offend his source of stories. No questions of any real significance shown and hence no answers forthcoming on the issues that matter – the 3 MO’s – MOxey, MOrgan and MOney.

      No great surprise there mate.

      The E&S must get more from Wolves than they let on because to an outsider looking in, something doesn’t add up.

      Tim Nash very rarely gets anything exclusive from them. The E&S website is usually a mirror image of the official site with the same quotes just regurgitated using a slightly different angle.

      I seem to remember Tim mentioning he gets one on one time with the manager every week. If this is true, he’s simply not asking enough/the right questions, which is baffling when you only need look on Twitter for inspiration. Stuff like:

      Why was Leigh Griffiths not retained in January (proper explanation please)?
      Why is Peszko not playing?
      Is Gorkks really better than Berra/Stearman/Batth? What qualities does he possess that they don’t?
      Are Gorkks/Johnson better than Batth? If so, in what way?
      Why was Nouha Dicko signed when he’s not even good enough to get into the team?
      What areas of the team do you think are weakest?

      It’s obvious that getting anything from Moxey/Morgan is nigh on impossible, but I think where the E&S fall down is at team level. Not enough direct questions are asked, resulting in the same old tired quotes.

      The E&S should be a combination of tough interviews with players/manager and editorials. We get drips and drabs of both. On the rare occasion Tim/Martin put their own opinion out in the columns, we actually get some insight. For example:

      http://www.expressandstar.com/sport/wolverhampton-wanderers-fc/2012/02/13/seeds-of-doubt-sown-when-transfer-funds-dried-up/

      What’s painfully obvious from Tim’s web chat, as well as many of his columns is that he’s long since climbed into bed with Jez Moxey. They’re good mates. And when your regional reporter is in the back pocket of the club’s CEO, you get the squidgy, half-baked approach we have to suffer.

    Of course we are going to lose, we are awful, and barnsley will go down wiith us. The score? The normal 2-1 to them. They will control game and we will score late goal. Then what? Well saunders must go. Did he build Doncaster or his assistants, as they had better results after he left. Who would i have in? Coyle, curbishley, flitcroft or bowyer of blackburn. I would also like chris powell but he won’t leave charlton. Saunders football is awful, no angles run, no looking for space, no possession, no pressure, no defence, no tracking, no organisation and no tactics. Solbakken the same, but berra and johnson used to pass side ways numerous times before a big hoof. Do people realise how shocking how football as become. However, it won’t happens ad saunders will remian in charge and we will struggle in league one with our amateur football. Please wolves, for once, be inventive and innovative. I will watch you then but not this turgid mess.

You can see the highlights on Youtube. Great second goal from Chivers but Parkes made the same mistake for the first and their goal at the Lane. Worth seeing for Waggy’s 30 yrd thunderbolt. Just like watching Doyle shoot today!

      Yeah Alf, i watched the highlights on Youtube today. Parkes came for the cross and didn’t make it for Chivers first and then did most of his diving after the second had hit the net. He came and flapped at a cross for Spurs only goal at WHL as well. (IMO we were always short of a keeper good enough for that team in those days). And then Waggy cut in from the right and buried a 30yd screamer in off the post! Those WERE the days.

        I was at both legs of that final.
        The second leg, we all met in the Tavern at noon, and by 2 when we got on our special coach, we were already pissed.
        Half way down the M1the coach driver refused to stop at the services, so we had to piss in the empty Newcastle brown bottles.
        The only time that day, between noon at about 3 in the morning that we were NOT drinking was during the match.
        We all met in Trafalgar Square at midnight to get on our special coach again, after running off a bunch of Spurms fans, and we still had a dozen or so crates of Newcastle brown to get through on the way back.
        Needless to say we coped admirably, and Pat Banks even managed to drive Big Mark Davies and me back to Penn, in his blue Cortina, at 4 in the morning, absolutely wasted.
        One of my footballing highlights, even though we lost.
        Those truly were the days, my friends.

    I predict Brighton 1 Wolves 5
    An early goal from King John Richards gets the party started, followed by a second after 20 minutes, this time a screamer from Kenny Hibbit. Brighton pull one back on the half hour,
    Lofty just failing to get his hands to a grubber that sneaks into the bottom corner.
    Second half gets underway and eight minutes in Waggy cuts in from the left wing and hits an unstoppable shot into the top right hand corner, the fans go wild. On the hour a cross from Wee Willie Car picks out Doog’s head and its 4-1. Then ten minutes from the end a Waggy corner finds an unmarked Frankie Munro and he powers it into the back of the net, we go into cruise control and celebrate a classic 5-1 win. Then Peterborough and Barnsley lose, although why we should be bothered about a third division and a fourth division side beats me.
    The lads celebrate on the pitch with Bill McGarry being carried shoulder high as we seal that European spot for next season.
    Thats my prediction…………………..what, you think I am living in the past , how dare you.

    So this is my last day supporting a Championship team. I think after 40 years of supporting this team, I may take a hiatus for a while. I can’t take this anymore, I can’t take the gd awful ramblings of the inept idiot also known as Dean saunders. I can’t take anymore of the bullshit that flows from the mouth of the Greasel. I simply can’t take anymore.

    Well if this is madness then I know I’m filled with gladness
    It’s gonna be rougher, it’s gonna be tougher, pa-da-da, pa-da-da
    And I won’t be the one who’s gonna suffer
    Oh no, I won’t be the one who’s gonna suffer
    You are gonna be the one, you

    Erm OK seriously…I’m sure if someone pricked Saunders (and I’m sure Messers Morgan and Moxey do this on a daily basis) but you know with a pin then he’ll just pop. In an interview on Sky Sports and he looked like the most half arsed idiot you could ever have the displeasure to meet. He just exudes nonsense. On the radio the other day – Savage said Saunders was always the one at the back of the bus cracking jokes and everyone wanted to be his mate. I’m sure Savage was being euphemistic. And we have him as the boss of our beloved club, a fuckin clown!!! We are dead and buried with this mug in charge FFS!! Get rid Morgan and get rid of the FF Moxey C****. Oh God why me – why Wolves!!!!

    I hope to see the old-timers out on the field tomorrow, it would be totally unacceptable to let the youngsters play in this game, even though I would expect a better game with more passion and fight. We will of course get well and truly stuffed. Please no more talk of a director of football for now, we are a 3rd division side and need to get used to that for a while at least. Bring on next season and a vacancy for CEO. Brighton 4 – 0 Wolves.

    All season I’ve been looking forward to this game; the last match of the season, I can get there easily from London, promotion will have been secured by then, possibly only the league championship to play for… I was at Wigan for the last match of the last season, where every sang Solbakken’s name and told Roger Johnson he wasn’t fit to wear the shirt.

    Living in East London I’ve thought I should go and see Orient, just to watch football as a neutral. I never have, but next season I will watch them, but not as a neutral. FFS.

    There is just a possiblity that the players will put on a good show just to make us think what might have been – if only – then they’ll be off to pastures new. The other results won’t go our way though, and the players will have got us relegated as planned.

      Apart from having a load of players who could be sold for a profit, I can’t see any benefit to the Academy as yet – I don’t think you should apologise Colin, I think it is another one of those questions that should be asked but will never be answered!

        Thanks for your reply Telford Wolf – my point really is that we are now in a position to fast forward the younger players and fast forward the future.

    For what its worth, I think we will play out of our skin, and do something silly like win 2-1. However, the win wont be enough, probably because the other results wont go our way.

    Should the unthinkable happen and we do escape, I would feel more insecure about the future. I could imagine that would be the excuse not to change anything, cos super Dean will be able to turn it round during the close season.

    But if we are having parachute payments of £16m, and relegation will cost us £5m (according to the E&S), any cost cutting won’t be at the expense of CEO type wages and wages of the £40K a week tossers will it? With gates of maybe 10K, there will be less catering staff (on their whopping minimum wage), less in the bars, less staff all round the ground.

    I hope the players do play out of their skin to catch the eyes of any scouts or agents etc. (Is there a branch of Specsavers in Town, or has that gone yet?)

    And talking of scouts, has anyone any upto date news of Thelwell and the others who were going to put us our scouting and development at the cutting edge of the UK? Or has that turned out to be another empty promise?

    I don’t really give two hoots anymore. Well………..on reflection I actually do.

    However I can’t see us getting anything from this game. We have simply rolled over and died too often this season and have had some of our most shocking performances in many “must win” games.

    The chances of us pulling out a good performance, let alone a convincing win, when relying upon goal difference and defeats two for the other strugglers, is a very doubtful prospect.

    Did anyone even waste a quid on the SprtingBet offer of 50:1 for us to stay up?
    Not many I wager.

    We have all been let down massively by our club, and I can’t see tomorrow being any different.

    I predict another lackluster performance to round out the pathetic pantomime which this season and much of last has been.

    Brighton and Hove A****n 3 – Wolverhampton Wanderers 1

    Enjoy your summers lads and lasses.

    Due to a wager a placed with a brighton fan earlier this season (before we became a dead team walking) losing tomorrow will cost me £40, on top of the £30 I paid him when it became mathematically impossible for us to finish above them.

    They’re not even the real a****n.

    Well it’s a bit late to have a first go at a prediction for the last game of the season, but I am a latecomer to the excellent Wolves Blog! Brighton are secure in 4th place, but Poyet will want to keep motivation levels up, while his players may be a bit more relaxed and keen to avoid injury and cards. In short, an important full-scale practice match for them and a pre-playoff home celebration. Can’t see our depleted, demoralised, unmotivated, split team really getting it together for a last hoorah – witness the lengthy row between Doyle and Henry in the centre circle last week. So, from a hopeless predictor, 3-1 to Brighton and flowers for the grave of WWFC. And whatever the bullets fired at MM and his players, those players would never have been allowed to get us into this position in the Championship under him.

    Not sure why I’m so pissed – the writing was on the wall a short time after appointing Dean.

    Like many others I was frustrated with some of the performances Wolves produced under Staale. It was frustrating at times but I accepted that you can’t change the world in six months and that many of the players he inherited just weren’t up top playing the style he wanted them to play. I was a little concerned by the way our second half performances fell away and felt that perhaps a little more emphasis needed to be put on fitness but overall it was the lack of effort from the players that was the most damning factor. With Staale I could see that he was trying to change things; he was trying to change a style that just didn’t cut it in the premiership into a style that would. That takes time and although we all got frustrated at times I think most of us felt there was a plan and when he brought in his own guys things would gradually improve.

    I would like to say I can see hope under Dean but I simply can’t. We have reverted to the style that took us down from the premiership and has now taken us down from the championship. It is hoofball at its worst. Next year we will pay Kaspar Gorkys £25k a week in the third division and he is no better than Berra. He’s been tried and found wanting at the top level. Dean has been tried and found wanting – this is two relegations from the championship in two seasons.

    I think under Dean we will continue to play hoofball. It MAY just get us out of the third division but I doubt it will get us any further. Morgan WAS right – we did need a complete change in style and in Staale he possibly appointed the right man BUT he didn’t back him financially and he didn’t give him time. Why the hell have we reverted to a style that has already failed us so dismally? Why has SM gone back to a style that he recognised needed changing?

    I too remember the dark days of the Bhattis and a derelict Mol but I can’t remember feeling as depressed as I feel now, looking forward to another season with Embarrassing Dean in charge. I can see it taking another two or three seasons just to get us back to where we were when we sacked Mick – a decision that I agreed with.

    If Moxey is still with us after this debacle after debacle there is simply no point in wasting time or breath. Nothing will change with him involved simpl as that.

    Might as well shut the academy too whats the point.

    I don’t know about anyone else, but I was listening to the BBC 5 Live Extra commentary and the first thing I felt as the final whistle went was a sense of relief that it was all over.
    Closely followed by a huge wave of anger –
    Anger at O’Hara running straight down the tunnel after the game (and hopefully out of our lives altogether)…
    Anger at the way that Morgan has proved that he knows absolutely sod all about running a football club…
    Anger at the whole team for playing virtually the whole season with no heart…
    Anger at Henry’s comment “We’re too good to go down”…
    Anger at the lack of team strengthening when it was obvious we weren’t up to it…
    Anger at the fact that Moxey is still in a job…
    Anger that ordinary, hard working employees at Wolves will probably be out of a job…
    And anger at myself because I still bloody care!!!

    Deån Saunders has spouted some pretty spurious rubbish since he was appointed manager, but he got one thing right when he said quite confidently:-
    “We’ve got the squad to get out of this division”.

    How right you were Deån!!
