United aiming for a new record at Wolves

Wolverhampton Wanderers host Manchester United on the back of an away defeat to Bolton on Tuesday when a disastrous Ronald Zubar back pass allowed Daniel Sturridge to steal a 93rd minute winner at the Reebok Stadium. In it’s preview of the game continued That result left Mick McCarthy’s men three points adrift at the bottom of the Barclays Premier League, in the starkest contrast to United who are now five points clear at the right end of the table. Sir Alex Ferguson’s current side have matched the 1999 Treble winners’ run of 29 league games without defeat and will fancy making it 30 having won all six clashes with Wolves since losing 1-0 at Molineux in 2004. Both clubs were then in the same positions they are now – top and bottom.

Wolves’ new signing Adam Hammill should retain his place on the wing after a successful debut against Bolton, whereas on loan Jamie O’Hara looks set to make the bench. United have no fresh injury concerns – Darren Fletcher has recovered from an eye problem picked up in Tuesday’s win over Aston Villa and Rafael should return after being given the all clear from the concussion suffered at Blackpool.

Wolves 24 year old winger Matt Jarvis is one of the most exciting young players in the top flight. With pace, skill and a naturally gifted left foot, he has been a shining light at Molineux this season. His impressive performances have caught the eye of England boss Fabio Capello resulting in the former Gillingham midfielder’s inclusion in a provisional 30 man squad to face France in November. Jarvis will reportedly be a summer transfer target for both Liverpool and Manchester City despite signing a new five year contract with Wolves in September.

Will United stretch their unbeaten run? There should be little doubt on paper BUT this is the sort of fixture in which the form book can be turned upside down so UNITED BEWARE

    I agree with the final two words of this article,not that I disagree with any of the main points. “United Beware”.Wolves have already beaten Chelsea and Manchester City, this season.So they have it in there locker to turn it on.
    They dont appear to take a tonking,on a regular basis.Liverpool I think,are the Club of most recent,to give them at Molinuex a whooping,well as far as the final score was concerned.Its called the “King Kenny ” effect ;).
    I actually have had difficulty, writing on certain articles that presented themselves, because of Rooney, and not knowing how to comment, because of the “broken romance”.:( He does tend to score in clusters so, I suppose he will hit the back of the Onion bag,as his barren spell should be past him.A narrow United win in my opinion.
    Its going to be an interesting weekend,for United.What United fan would not be privately thinking and wishing Liverpool to win.That will effectively kill of, Chelsea. Cmon King Kenny. 😉
    Cmon United.We can do it.Cmon you Reds.Its gonna be great.After tommorow, “13” to go.Opps, thats “13”, and who comes to Old Trafford.Och its only a number. 🙂

    ‘United beware’, no problem today lads as we (Wolves) are low in confidence, the defence is a shambles and we cannot score a goal for toffee!
    Messrs Rooney, Berbatov and Nani will have a relatively easy afternoon, score 4 goals between them and leave a poor Wolves team looking at relegation with fear in their souls.
    Why am I putting my team down so much? Well the problem is the ambition at the club, it is in words only!
    The manager is considered to be good at managing players but abhors the fans when they offer him advice because he knows best and no one will persude him otherwise. The CEO tells us he must be prudent with the clubs money particularly in transfer dealings but then tries to fleece the fans with overpriced tickets and whatever. The clubs owner has futuristic ideas of redeveloping the ground but seemingly has no input into the type of players we could and should be buying, meaning the club actually stagnates. Finally the players who were instrumental in gaining promotion from the Championship.
    Many of them are Championship players bought on the cheap and although the fans know we are not good enough to remain in the PL and therefore believed the manager would bring in experienced, battle hard PL players in the last window, all that happened was another Championship player was acquired (Hammill), a 35yo goalkeeper plus a loanee from Tottenham (O’Hara). – Where were the defenders to stop the goals being conceeded?
    The manager continually tells us that his squad is good enough to stay up. Well take a look at the table BEFORE todays game and you will see how good the squad is and then take another look AFTER this afternoons game and it will be plainly obvious that Wolves will be returning to their rightful place in May – the Championship! – We just love it there!!!
    All in all, Wolves are a club going nowhere but down, still our second adventure in the PL was interesting if not enjoyable but to United I say, carry on lads, win the PL title again and go on to lift the Champion’s League crown too, now that would really make my season!

    Don’t be so negative jeffrey. I, for one, would love to see Wolves survive but obviously not at our expense today. Che Sera, Sera

    @Jeffrey Grant. Enjoy your night mate, Wolves were far and away the better side.
    United right across our team , just did not turn up for the game.
    Your team fought for their lives, as you would expect, in Wolves perilous position.
    Play like that each week,as if you are playing the Premiership “Elect” team, you will stay up.
    Good luck.

    This banal comment was on the verge of being deleted but decided to let it through just to show how dumb people like mick, belfast really are. So mick, United have now lost one, City have lost FIVE including by the same 1-2 scoreline at Molineux. So WHAT’S YOUR POINT?

  7. RedScot says:

    The tick tock is your clock running down.Cum on City, Hmmmm, I see that as very approriate.We will piss on you.Sir Alex, will regroup the players, and be ready for the “Europa league” No hopers?
    I suppose bye the sound of your post, another TROLL.
