The Vital Wolves Mauling: Stoke

The Vital Wolves Mauling: Stoke

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 it's the turn of Vital Stoke.

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

You've made a reasonable start, but it's a long, hard season and you must be prepared to spend and strengthen the squad come January.

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

I think we're quite happy with our team, thanks. But it's good to see that you've got two former Stokies (Karl Henry and Chris Iwelumo) in the team who both did well whilst at the Brit and it's great to see that Chris is now fit again as he'll no doubt be desperate to make his first PL start.

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

The odds are still against you - despite Hull and ourselves managing it last time round. The good news for the new boys is that it looks like it going to be a repeat of last season with the bottom half of the table all being relegation candidates at some time or another so you may be ok if you can continue to pick up points on a regular basis.

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

Very pleased so far. We're picking up points against teams that we didn't last season. Losing to the 'top four' doesn't really matter as long as you're picking them up from those around or below you and any others are then a bonus.

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

Whilst much has been said about 'Fortress Britannia', you never know in a local derby. That being said, we'd be very upset if you took all three points off us!

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

Too early to say - just look where Hull were at Christmas last year and then they collapsed in the second half of the season and only just survived. Our first priority is still survival and then you push on.

7. Will you be happy with that?

Absolutely

8. Who will win the Premier League?

Chelsea

9. Who will go down?

Hull, Wolves and either Portsmouth or Burnley

10. Final thoughts?

Local derbies are always something special, so let's hope for a good game.

Thanks again to Vital Stoke for taking the time and effort to reply to our questions!
