The Vital Wolves Mauling: Swindon

The Vital Wolves Mauling: Swindon

With the Premier League now under way, Vital Wolves will be bringing you a new feature we have entitled The Vital Wolves Mauling.

Basically it's 10 questions with an editor from the Vital website of our next opponents (clever huh?)

So this week with a Carling Cup clash on its way it's answers from Vital Swindon.

1. What do you make of Wolves, how do you think they have faired back in the Premier League?



It's gone as expected hasn't it? Losing at home to West Ham would have probably disappointed me but beating teams like Wigan away are the ones that will keep you up this season.



I've got no issues with Wolves. You've got a good history, Robert Plant supports you and you had some decent players when I was growing up Steve Bull, Andy Mutch (not so much with us though!), Mark Venus, Robbie Dennison were among the players I always looked forward to seeing at the County Ground as a child.



It's good to see Wolves in the top flight. I'd much rather see them in there than a team like Reading.

2. Which Wolves player would you like in your team?

I like the squad Danny Wilson is building but if we're in dreamland then... Wayne Hennessey, Richard Stearman, Michael Kightly, Sylvain Ebanks-Blake, Andy Keogh, Andrew Surman, David Jones, Sam Vokes and Matt Hill and that's off the top of my head.



Jody Craddock was linked to us last season, he'd have been good here but he's shown that he can still do well above the 3rd Tier - all credit to him.

3. Ultimately do you think Wolves will avoid the drop?

With teams like Hull, Bolton, Burnley Wigan, Stoke and you could even say Portsmouth or Blackburn within the division it's more than possible for Wolves to compete and survive.



Mick McCarthy has a Football League 'Dream Team' it's only a matter of time before you find out whether it's good enough for the Premiership.



4. What are your thoughts on how your season has gone so far?



We had the start from hell, a 5-0 loss at Gillingham. There's a bit of history between the two clubs so it was humiliating! We then beat MK Dons 4-1 away to set-up this fixture and drew with them 0-0 in the league which was okay.



We beat Southampton 1-0 which was brilliant and drew 2-2 at Oldham which is fine.

5. What do you think will happen in your game against Wolves?



Swindon have got nothing to lose really. Wolves have more important things in my opinion than a League Cup run. However, you've got plenty of decent players in the reserves at the moment.



I hope we can give you a bit of a scare win or lose.

6. Where will your side be come the end of the season?



Honestly? I haven't got a clue, as long as we win more than we lose!



We've got a small squad so injuries could ruin us but Danny Wilson is showing signs of getting the best out of his players. Especially J-P McGovern and Lescinel Jean-Francois.

7. Will you be happy with that?

Yeah, last season was rubbish - as long as we don't get sucked in to that relegation battle again I'm happy.

8. Who will win the Premier League?



It's a hard one to call this year. Arsenal look good as always. Chelsea are grinding out wins again while Manchester United will be hard to beat (Burnley loss aside!)... Not Liverpool though, I doubt they'll win.



I wouldn't write-off Manchester City either. Chelsea were never seriously title challengers until they bought the title - why can't the Blue side of Manchester do the same?

9. Who will go down?

Again, it could be 3 or 6/7 Bolton Wanderers, Hull City and Stoke City.

10. Final thoughts?

Do you have any decent young strikers or left-backs available on loan?!?!

Thanks again to Vital Swindon for making the time and effort to answer our questions.
