What a Fantastic Week It Has Been

The last eight days have been fantastic for Wolverhampton Wanderers and their fans. The team has won all three games during this period starting with a 3-1 win against Bristol City at Molineux on Saturday 25th January. Members of this Supporters' Club where present and participated in the minute applause celebrating the life and achievements of the deceased goalkeeping legend Bert Williams. The game saw a Nouha Dicko make his 2nd Debut at Molineux after his spell on loan last season. Dicko opened his account with Wolves by scoring the opening goal.

The next game produced an emphatic Wolves 3-0 win over Oldham Athletic at Boundary Park. The scoreline must have warmed the hearts of the travelling faithful on a cold winter's night.

This past week was also the last week of the January transfer window. Wolves' incoming transfer activity was almost complete by the signing of former Wolves striker Leon Clarke. The striker was one of the first to sign a professional contract when Wolves first made it to the Premier League in 2003.  Then at 18, he had already been at the club for 10 years. Twenty year's later, Clarke returned to Wolves as the top scorer in the Division. On the last day, three players moved away from the club. Kevin Doyle went out on loan to QPR and permanent deals saw the unsettled Leigh Griffiths and Wayne Hennessy move to Celtic and Crystal Palace respectively. No-one seems to want to take a chance on Jamie O'Hara.

Bradford City came to Molineux on Saturday 1st February. They were dispatched 2-0 and with Orient losing, Wolves moved into the top two. Top of the table Brentford also lost points and Wolves have closed the gap on a very good and in-form side. It could not get much better this weekend. Let's hope the December stutter is well and truly behind our team.
