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 Phil from Vital Burnley.
1. What do you make of Wolves, how do you think they have faired back in the Premier League?
You seem to have struggled a lot of the time but typically you have now hit some form just as we are lined up to play you. Great result for you at the Lane!
2. Which Wolves player has caught your eye this season?
I do like Kevin Doyle and was miffed when Reading got their claws into him a few seasons back when we couldn't compete with their finances
3. Ultimately do you think Wolves will avoid the drop?
It's a lottery isn't it? So many clubs trying to avoid the drop. The key is home form, we have managed to do OK so far by turning Turf Moor into a fortress but we can't rely on it completely and we badly need some points on the road and our first win away.
If you string one or two back to back wins together you are laughing with only seven points separating the relegation zone from 9th spot. Look at Brum? I don't see why you cant survive, just hope its not at our expense.
4. What are your thoughts on how your season has gone so far?
We are absolutely ecstatic and nobody predicted we would have so many points already at this stage. Impressive home wins against Man U, Everton, Sunderland and Birmingham plus creditable home draws against Arsenal, Villa and Fulham have done us proud. We have had some torrid times away from home though but at times we can play amazingly well without much reward, witness our 3-3 draw at Eastlands. Clarets fans will be hoping for three points and our first win away against your lot on Sunday and we think we can do it after the superb performance against Arsenal at Turf Moor in midweek
5. What do you think will happen in your game against Wolves?
It depends which team turns up and whether we take our chances. If we play like we did against Portsmouth at Fratton Park recently but put away the chances we should win and if we play like we did against Man City, I don't think anybody outside the top six would be able to touch us. You just sense we have to win sometime away from home and I fancy our chances at Molineux. I think we will sneak this one 1-0 or 2-1 but it should be a great game in this vital six pointer of a match
6. Where will your side be come the end of the season?
At the start of the season I said I would be happy with 17th and that remains the case. My feeling now is that we will finish somewhere between 12-15th.
7. Will you be happy with that?
I'll be happy with survival full-stop!
8. Who will win the Premier League?
I would have said Chelsea easily after they totally outclassed us at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season although they have wobbled a bit recently. You can never write off Man U though. I would be delighted if someone could break the Big Four monopoly though, maybe a Villa, Spurs or even Man City.
9. Who will go down?
I do hope Wolves survive, I know a few Wolves mates and would be gutted for them if you were relegated. As I say please stay up but not at our expense. I think the three that could go down are West Ham, Hull and Pompey although I would dearly love Rovers to be one of them!
10. Final thoughts?
Its a massive, massive game on Sunday. Let's hope its a cracker and may the best team win
Thanks very much to Phil for taking the time and effort to answer our questions.
