View from the Opposition – Wolves

A bit about you:

Name: Lady Wulfruna

Current home town: Leicester (36 years)

Birthplace: Wolverhampton (Codsall – the posh bit!)

How long have you supported your team? 50+ years

Overview of your club:

Favourite thing about your home ground: 37 Year hearing ‘Hi Ho Wolverhampton’ being sung…very loudly

Favourite match played by your team & why: Wolves 4 Leicester 3 (2003-4) – fantastic comeback from being 0-3 down and meant I could hold my head up high on return to work on Monday. Winning the 2002-3 Play Off final was also sweet as it meant not only we’d be promoted (to play teams like Leicester) but watching it at home I was able to play my own copy of ‘The Liquidator’ continuously and very loud to my next door neighbour (a Leicester season ticket holder)….who proceeded to take me to the pub and buy me beer….all in all a very good day!  

Favourite player of all time who played for your club: 'The Tipton Skin’ i.e. Steve Bull, closely followed by Wolves (and Leicester) legend Derek ‘The Doog’ Dougan and John Richards…all were great goal scorers. I also had the added bonus of delivering theirs (and Mike Bailey’s) newspapers as a young lad in my home village.

About our forthcoming match against you:

Your favourite current player in your squad and why?  Ruben Neves – oozes class but still love it when he brings Cavaleiro or Traoré on to open up the game.

Player in your squad we should most fear and why? As above + Adama Traoré … I think he will relish having the Portuguese play makers to give him space

Player in our squad you most fear and why? I like Hamza Choudhury’s desire and willingness to win a lost ball.  He may be too tough for the Wolves midfield.

Up and coming prospect in your squad? Any of the unknown Portuguese!

How do you think you’ll do against us? We should have won at the King Power and our home form is poor, but I still predict a narrow Wolves win 2-1.

General Questions:

What did you think to the summer transfer activity both in and out of your club? Bostin’…which is Wulfrunian for brilliant….the owners mean business. Haven’t seen much of Dendonker but he reads well. I was gutted Barry Douglas went as the 2 x wing backs were instrumental in Wolves’ play last season  

Where do you think you’ll finish this season?  Top 10 is expected with serious ambition thereafter
