R. I. P Fred Davies.
Goalkeeper when I first started supporting Wolves. Respect and condolences to his friends and family.

Ken68

{Ed002's Note - Fred Davies was one of teh Wolves players that played for Los Angeles Wolves in the United Soccer Association. When I was a lot younger I did go and see my local side (Golden Gate Gales who were in reality Den Haag) play - this would be 1967.}

Interesting Ed. That sounds like the tournament Wolves went on to win under the moniker Los Angeles Wolves beating Aberdeen 6 -5 in the final.


2.) 03 Sep 2020 16:42:38
Ed002 yep, one of the many attempts to get soccerball! going in the states.


3.) 03 Sep 2020 17:49:49
If my memory serves me, a young Frank Munro was playing for Aberdeen in that 1967 final - playing midfield / inside forward at that point.


4.) 03 Sep 2020 19:31:56
I think you're correct on that one. What a fine player Frank Munro was! You wouldn't want to argue with him back then. Passed away about 10 years ago I think.

If anyone is interested the Copa Libertadores Final between Palmieras and Santos is on the BBC red button at 8pm. A chance of a dose of free football for a change. Might be a better watch than Tesco v Fulham earlier!

I watched the Santos semi-final a couple of weeks ago. Entertaining if you can get past all the play acting.

Going for 2-0 for us today with Boly on the scoresheet.


2.) 30 Jan 2021 13:13:21
Should be an interesting team selection, today. Expect to see Saiss at LWB, given the injuries. Would like Fabio and Billy Joe to play 45 mins each, and think it's time one of the kids start in midfield, Otasowie, Perry or Shabani. COYW.


3.) 30 Jan 2021 14:03:46
No Saiss in the squad?


4.) 30 Jan 2021 14:15:35
Saiss has got a 'niggle' apparently. Looks like Semedo at LWB, glad to see Hoever and Billy Joe start! Great double- page piece in the Times today, Nuno with Henry Winter. COYW!


5.) 30 Jan 2021 14:21:02
I'm happy with the line up seems a surprise statto no Saiss in squad, it could be he got c. v. or self isolating.
It could be any reason sure we will find out why though.
Think semedo will play left wing back he did ok second half agaisnt Chelsea defensively that is.
Really up for seeing Willian Jose I had a feeling Traore would be the one to make way.
COYW.


6.) 30 Jan 2021 19:11:49
Saiss is in Liverpool having a medical . Origi coming on loan to sweeten the deal .


 

 

13 Jan 2021 13:49:19
I must admit that I was surprised last night that VAR didn't look at the elbow from Mina into the head of Hoever at the last corner of last night's game. Maybe they'd switched off and gone home by then.

1.) 13 Jan 2021 17:15:01
We ain't big 6 mate that's why they are scared of anyone breaking that golden big 6.


2.) 13 Jan 2021 17:16:45
U r correct ken. No idea why it wasn't looked at,
We looking at Andy delort
He had 11 games for Wigan a few yes back and scored zero. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ.


3.) 13 Jan 2021 18:12:21
I thought that as well Ken, he CLEARLY led with his arm (and if you spotted his face after he new he got away with one) . I actually think this goes back to the age old problem that pundits seem to always be discussing, if Hoever had hit the deck and screamed like he'd lost a leg I suspect we might have got a pen! This is the problem we all hate the diving and the screaming but they do it for a VERY simple reason. it works! ๐Ÿ˜’.


4.) 13 Jan 2021 20:40:19
Agreed BullysBoy needs to learn the screaming, we don't want to see it but sadly it works. For some anyway! The run of injuries to our important players is the cause of our perceived problem at the moment. I've written the season off as a learning experience for our young players. We will finish top half and kick on next season I'm certain. ๐Ÿ˜.


5.) 13 Jan 2021 21:22:28
We need to learn how to defend.


6.) 14 Jan 2021 00:50:47
I agree generally speaking but not sure the relevance is mind to us not getting a pen at our corner?

Not been on for a while, not been to well (not C.V. thankfully) .

Thefutureisoldgold and Phil. Enjoyed reading your posts about walking. Used to do loads of walks mainly in the Edale and Hope valleys until I fell and broke my hip (not smart) . Lovely walking country, try it you won't be disappointed!

Football well, I've watched loads of it. Yesterday a bit of a farce tbh. Felt sorry for Kilman so harsh especially after the linesman clearly waved it away and the ref for that matter. They seem to absolve themselves from any decisions until Stockley Park get involved, not just our game but all of them! The game is becoming a laughing stock. As to our performance, Rayan looked lost half the time Marcal should have played tbh he's not ready yet. Against Palace he was the same some of the time but Palace played so narrow he got away with it!
Hopefully Nuno can have a good think about what he's going to do to sort out because they are struggling to get Raul into the game maybe get Traore on from the start because it's becoming so predictable if we know when he's coming on so do they!
Anyway I'll shut up for now I could go on for hours! Let's enjoy the international break and see what happens then.

Another poster on here who sadly I've forgotten which one kindly gave me the website where I've watched all the games for free so I'll put it on its called hesgoal.com pretty good better than 15-00 a pop anyway!

Glad you are ok Ken and not got the c. v.
My post about a bad day today was more in jest. I am lucky I have my health unlike many who haven't.
Yes I agree Ken Traore should start next game and marcel in for ait nouri.
Walking in the country I am doing when the c. v. has gone. I love it Ken.
Work has been frantic today so won't be on here after this post tonight.
Will be asleep for 8 o'clock.
Sincerely hope you stay healthy Ken
Up the wolves.


2.) 09 Nov 2020 19:12:07
Was also chatting with Les from Buxton and the two places you mention are both in the Peak district as well.
As I told him we had been to the area on holiday, (I only recalled Bakewell - the cake place! ), when I was a little boy. We stayed with friends of my dad in a place called Glapwell, near Clay Cross. I Spoke to my mother about it and she was telling me that the man we visited had been a coal miner but we had visited the Blue John Mine - a beautiful and apparently expensive mineral mined in the area - and the mine is in the Hope Valley! Small world!


3.) 09 Nov 2020 19:12:52
Ken - glad to hear you are feeling better!


4.) 09 Nov 2020 21:32:35
Ken68. Hope youโ€™re feeling better? Speedy recovery mate.
It was me who told about hesgoal. com, glad to hear youโ€™re getting your games for free ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘.


5.) 09 Nov 2020 21:39:55
Good to see you again Ken mate, hope you're ok from that hip injury.


6.) 10 Nov 2020 14:22:31
Thanks for the good wishes gents! Much appreciated.


7.) 10 Nov 2020 18:17:15
Thanks again to Lowwolf, wall to wall football now! Though tbf I've watched some garbage as well. Mind you it was free garbage!


8.) 10 Nov 2020 20:28:28
Ken, serves you right for watching the Albion ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.


 

 

26 Oct 2020 14:06:21
I thought I'd wait a bit and think about it before I commented but I still think the same as I did last night!
I looked pretty but it was pedestrian and predictable. On top all game not making any forward movement with any real pace. After 60 minutes take Podence off for Traore also predictable! Why not move Podence to the left and take Saiss off? Not that he was playing badly just doing what he was told.
At the end get mugged! Stupid free kick, not that it was tbh. Nuno blamed the wall, actually I watched it Patricio set it's location. It was a good free kick mind you. Definitely 2 points given away through a lack of ambition for me. We are better than that!
I watched the Arsenal game after and to be fair they were no better. It looked pretty and achieved buggar all except of course they lost, mugged more than us.
We should have won easy but you need more urgency it no good picking it up when they score late. We should have been out of sight by then. Hoping for much better against Palace! COYW.

Ken68

1.) 26 Oct 2020 14:27:20
Agree with most of what you say Ken but, Nuno picks the team so do you think it's his fault. I think Nuno as an ex goalkeeper knows that wall wasn't right. As an ex goalkeeper myself it's obvious there should have been another man on the end of the wall. I agree it wasn't just about the free kick though, we need the midfield to connect with the front three better, we can't keep them pinned in.


2.) 26 Oct 2020 14:38:51
There was a lot of skill on show, but I think this needs to develop into more attacking urgency. We will have a lot of teams come and sit back, and we have to punish them, or they will steal a goal and take points from us.


3.) 26 Oct 2020 16:29:39
Totally agree! We were much too slow in the build-up-also too predictable. I would have Traore start.


4.) 26 Oct 2020 17:05:18
What is most poignant, is, that this could be the tightest Premier league for some considerable time and Champions league places are up for grabs. However playing this conservative, pedestrian football won't get us into one of those places. If we miss out-and if we miss out to say Villa-I don't think Nuno will have any excuses. I understand he is still experimenting, but the lack of incisive play is a concern. It's no good the manager coming out saying other players than Jimenez need to chip in when those players need 50 passes and 50 touches to create an opening when five will do.


5.) 26 Oct 2020 19:03:57
Good reading all your thoughts on the match.
Let's hope we get a win and more of an attacking threat against Palace.


6.) 26 Oct 2020 22:42:06
Fantastic post Ken, really enjoyed reading that mate.


 

 

04 Oct 2020 21:00:33
I'm very pleased that we won our game against Fulham before the comedy acts took over! Funny old times!

3 Points, by no means perfect but job done. A nice present of a midfield player tomorrow would be nice. Nice touches from a few today. We are not the only ones struggling a bit at the moment. Hopefully a bit more fluency will come after the break but with so many players away it may sadly take a bit longer!

Glad you're ok Phil, you take care pal we need you on our team. The post about Patricia and drawers made me smile. Better than last night's game. Frankly we did better than I expected until the last few minutes. The money they have on the bench is scary enough! Villa I expect something from didn't expect anything from City.

Interesting team selection tonight
Semedo to score I think! He must be due one and he's had a few attempts recently maybe tonight's the night. Here's hoping! COYW.

And they wonder why players insist on standing in front of the ball to stop quick free kicks from being taken. Unlike Tesco's obviously! Laughable!
Bring on our game, I suspect it may be tough. If it isn't I'm sure we'll make it so! I expect a win, very much hope so anyway.
