3rd win and a 2nd clean sheet on the trot and now lying 8th with only
3 points between us and the leaders immaterial of today's games.
Well done Wolves, well don Ebanks-Blake, Sigurdarson and Ikeme (for
the clean sheet) and of course the rest of the team. This is where
it's impossible for me to comment on their play as living in Gibraltar
and us being in the Championship means I don't get to see the
match...can only follow what's happening on twitter and blogs.
I can hope though and with some great football and a little bit of
luck we might just be back on the TV every weekend in the
Premiership...so come you Wolves, for all your overseas supporters,
lets get back up there!

I, for one, am looking forward to the start of the season, hopefully one where we win most of our games rather than wallow at the bottom of league and always upset after the game. I know this is a bitter pill to swallow seeing that we are not in the Premiership and of course fighting to remain at the top is always better but at least changes have been made, new signings on cards, and a new season ahead.
It's adopt, adapt and improve (as the RT slogan goes) time and with some hard work we hopefully will be back in the Premiership all that much stronger and wiser!
COME ON WOLVES!

I am hoping that with time this site will get more of the local Wolves fans talking so that we will meet up to watch a few games and perhaps, in the future, be able to meet the odd few visiting fans for a beer or two.
My other thanks must go to Paul who as Supporter Liaison Officer at Wolves has contacted me to offer support to local fans. Locals take note!
From the information I have (and therefore not written in stone so please check with the National Teams Website before making any plans to get to any of the games) the fixtures are as follows:
June 28 - Gib v Isle of Man
June 30 - Gib v Channel Islands
July 20 - Gib v Portsmouth
July 30 - Gib v Notts County
If you are interested in being kept updated on all things football in Gibraltar its worth visiting Football Gibraltar, a great blog maintained by Daniel who constantly updates it with match reports and general footballing news.

Practice is over, Roy Hodgson has passed his mock exams with A's but now will be tested fully.
I think Roy should be given A's as he has won both games and kept clean sheets although he could have got A*s had he beaten them 2 or 3 nil. Let's face facts neither team beaten play at France or Sweden's level!
These are far tougher teams with far better attacking abilities who will break through any defence at some point during any game so 1 goal may not be enough.
I am personally of the opinion that our biggest problem is the depth of the squad. Let's face facts every team will have injuries, the main difference is that most of the other bigger teams have strength and experience further down the squad.
My prediction is L L W just scraping through to make it, as is often the case with England!
Then who know, one thing is for sure we will need A* performances!

Back to the Championship next season, back to following Wolves via news articles, write ups, and tweets (this is a new one for me as the last time we were in the Championship League I didn't have Twitter!)
As an overseas fan one of the hardest things to relegation is not being able to watch any matches. Whilst we have been in the Premiership almost every match is televised and by tuning in to some very odd TV stations we, the overseas supporters, were able to watch almost every match. Now it'll have to be late night highlights! It'll be highlights knowing the score and due to time differences, it'll be very late, known, highlights!
So this makes relegation all the more sour. Of course it's not as bad as some clubs and their difficulties, Rangers for one and Portsmouth who are still unsure if they will be around much longer!
On that note should they still be around in the summer they are scheduled to play against GFA, that is the Gibraltar Football Association, yes, Portsmouth are scheduled to fly down to Gibraltar and play the Gibraltar national side!
On the up side we do have a confirmed new manager coming in, with respect to TC I think this really needed to be looked at and whilst I don't know much about our new gaffer we did really need someone to
come in and take control. I am really pleased to hear that TC is likely to stay on after all he has given a lot to Wolves and I bet has a lot more to offer.
Again on the up side we have a new stand which looks amazing and more importantly no serious financial difficulties, surely a big thank you is owed to Steve Morgan and Jez for that!
Also on the up side WE ARE THE WOLVES and I feel confident that next season will result in more wins than losses (makes for a better season) and more excitement as we go for the title and in doing so get promoted to the Premiership once again!
So to end our season a win would be great, one last success in the Premiership before we bow out, reflect and rebuild, and come storming back into the Premiership come end of next season!
COME ON YOU WOLVES!

COME ON YOU WOLVES
Friday, March 30, 2012
So here we are, as we start to watch the sun set on what was our best start ever in the Premiership, at the very bottom, 4 points away from safety and with some hard (well being last means all games are going to be hard) games ahead of us.
Bolton next...what can we say...any chance...HA!
Having said that when I travelled up to Molineux to watch us play Manchester United I was so impressed by our fans, their singing, tongue in cheek lyrics and ability to laugh (let’s face it what else can we do) was overwhelming, it was a great to be there even losing 5-0. At least it looks like this was a lost game against the Champions, so not too bad.
I personally need to keep the faith and therefore am going for a Wolves win again! I am going to say we will get 2 in whilst Bolton will only mange the one. I will go further, Bolton will get the first one by the 40th minute but we will come back to score two, 1st by Fletcher and second from a corner resulting in Carl Henry (who hopefully will be there) smashing it into the back of the net! So my predication Wolves 2 – 1 Bolton
Mr Footie’s prediction is short and sweet this week...(either he’s tiring from being creative or his track record is quietening him down, either way he’s in our favour this week...
I’ll keep it simple this weekend.
This is 9 pointer!! Wolves have to win and will win 2-1. Prediction Wolves 2 – 1 Bolton
I base this purely on the fact that Wolves need is greater
I have just realised that we have agreed on the score and whilst I would normally change mine to accommodate his I do believe (and hope) that on this occasion we are right and therefore will leave it!
COME ON YOU WOLVES!
Friday, March 23, 2012
Well it’s all going from bad to worse, there seems to be no hope of survival now! 12 goals against us in the last 3 games is not just a bad run but the end of realistically believing that we will pick up any points against the likes of Norwich, Sunderland, Swansea, Everton, let alone the other two big boys still to play, Man C and Arsenal! I guess we could hopefully get a point against Wigan come last game but then what relevance will that have.
That’s my moaning over!
So what about the Norwich game...well realistically I can’t see us winning but I can’t help hoping, dreaming, wishing that the boys will pull it off and not only get us a point but go as far as scoring 3. They can do it so until the lady sings at sunset I can only but shout COME ON YOU WOLVES! My hopeful prediction is Norwich 1 – 2 Wolves (Jarvis and Fletcher to score).
Here’s Mr Footie’s prediction:
Well for the first time I picked the right result last Sunday (hardly a surprise). The manner of Wolves surrender without a wimper did shock me. Don’t think it would have happened on Big Mick’s watch?
Morgan needed to take decisive action after the Blackburn game but didn’t and TC looks set to remain in charge for the remainder of the season. This is a decision which in my view, all but seals Wolves fate. A real man motivator is what’s needed to lift a flagging team and TC does not appear to be that man.
Norwich have been in decent form this season and I can see them running out 3-1 winners this weekend.
Friday, March 16, 2012
Lets be honest, if we continue like this we are not likely to win a game so I might as well go to a top flight game where I get to see the potential Premiership Champions play my team, that's got to better than watching a Blackburn beat us 2-0 at home!
And then if you think about it, our record shows, that we tend to perform better against the top 6 than the remaining 13, so who knows, could this be the one, the one win that we all talk about when we are watching us play in the Championship League next season.
Apologies, that's really quite negative and frankly we can still make it, we can pull it off, without help from anyone else, we can survive, we just need to believe and this could be the one that counts, the one that starts our survival run for the rest of the season.
So to the predictions, here's Mr Footies (hopefully he will be as wrong as he always has been, and by that I mean wrong in our favour!):
Great, that's a great (not) prediction but its a lot better than Mr Man U who today predicted, after a brief conversation, that the score would be:
Wolves 1-4 United
I suppose they are quite similar, after all they are both a win by 3 goals only difference is giving us a consolidation goal. He was quite sure that we would get one!
Well here's mine...The shocker of the season, talk of a third manager coming in, a Chairman who has faced the crowds (and frankly I personally think its not right to hit him as a scouser mafia, lets be honest he's invested in the development of the stadium, spent, apparently only less than the top 6 teams in the Premiership, and from what I have read has also pumped in some serious monies into the community in Wolverhampton. If that's right then Steve Morgan is doing a reasonable job, he's only got it wrong now by not having a real replacement for MM but then again would we survive with MM still there?), and then go on to beat Manchester Untied!
Yes I said it BEAT MAN U! Rooney will get a goal and probably two so I will go for:
Wolves 3-2 United
COME ON YOU WOLVES!
PS Keep an eye out for the one fan holding up the Gibraltar Flag (and take pity for him if he's travelled the 1604 miles only to see them lose and maybe lose big time, but hey that's what make a fan)

Friday, March 2, 2012
So here's this weeks prediction:
A difficult one to call on Sunday but I am going to go for Wolves to remain unbeaten under TC by grabbing a draw at Fulham. Fulham tend to be strong at home and I can see Clint Dempsey firing them into the lead only to be pegged back as Jarvis floats the perfect cross onto the head of Fletcher/Doyle!! (1-1)
As with any game in the premiership it's not easy to call, even the bottom of the table can pull it off against the top on occasion so it's never easy!
