End of nightmare run of fixtures insight

End of nightmare run of fixtures insight

After a win over Manchester City, we all fancied our chances against Manchester United, but fate has thrown us a cruel hand as we now move our attentions to Arsenal.

Now I'm as positive as the next man in a Wolves a shirt, but I didn't really expect us to get anything out of the game against Old Trafford.

Once I saw their team sheet however, I did fancy us to get something from the next 90 minutes.

And to an extent, I was right, unfortunately though Ji-Sung Park was allowed the right to play for 93 minutes, to steal a well earned point away.

But at least this nightmare run of fixtures will be over soon.

We should, all going well against Arsenal, come out of this run against Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal with our heads held relatively high, with a minimum of three points in the bag but more importantly still in touching distance of the clubs around us.

Pick up some points over the next few fixtures against the likes of Bolton, Blackpool, Sunderland, Birmingham, Blackburn and of course the Baggies and I believe we'll be in healthy league position at Christmas.

What do you think the next month holds for Wolves? Let us know on the article comments below.

Yep still in good shape (could be better/worse). I'd be more worried if we weren't playing well. I just hope that we haven't reserved these decent peformances for the big boys and play like muppets against the likes of Bolton, Bpool, Sland etc. UTW!!

Let's face it we went into the 4 games expecting no return, 3 points and 1 game to go... you're right we've got to maintain the belief and pick up the points against the 'easier' teams, UTW

if we carry on playing like we have been we will easily avoid relegation no matter how we do over the next 2, 3 or 4 games. if the players go into games believing that and not thinkin that certain games are 'must win games', they will do much better. bolton at home on saturday. should we carry on with the 4-5-1/4-3-3 or go 4-4-2? i would be tempted to drop edwards and bring in SEB with doyle up front with hunt, henry, milijas & jarvis in midfield!

You have to control the midfield against Bolton due to the way they play, so for me I`d be sticking with a five man midfield.

It's obvious our best system is 5 in midfield. We should stick with this throughout the rest of the season. It was no coincidence that we were harder to beat last season because of it. UTW!!!

I agree with the benefits we have gained from a 4-5-1 system But there are problems. In particular, it puts a great deal of pressure on the two wide boys, who have to track back and defend as well as hare down the wing and cross the ball into the box. If one of them manages it, he only has Doyle to aim at. Of course, the other winger should be at the far post to tap in the cross but has he the strength to get there? Hunt has already missed a couple of chances (though he might convert one or two when fully fit). If they play further up the field in a 4-3-3 system, they offer less cover in defence, which is our weakest area, especially on the left. Tell me how much opportunity Jarvis is going to get tomorrow: I see that Walcott is looking forward to the game!
