We’re off to Wolves on Saturday, here’s the it’s A Fix update : 10) SATURDAY OCTOBER 30TH WOLVES (AWAY) KO 3PM
Second season in the Prem. this time. Last pot the Lg Cup in 1980, 105th Lg meeting, recent connections Keith Curle, Mark Kennedy.
Mick’s brought in Van Damme, Fletcher, Mouyokolo, Hunt, Bent, Bia, Bujangi, Guedioura, Mancienne for around £12M, and let various players go on loan or on frees. Squad also includes Hahnemann, Craddock, Berra, Foley, Ward, Henry, Jones, Jarvis, Doyle etc.
Last season at COMS in August it was our first home game which we won unconvincingly 1-0 with a strike from Adebayor. Crowd was 47,287 (2,809 Wolves)
At Molineux however it was a very convincing late December 3-0 win with two goals from Tevez, and one from Garrido. Crowd was 28,957 with 2691 Blues along the length of the pitch, lower tier.
After 9 games they’re 19th with 6 points and 1 win, 2 draws and 1 loss at home.
Molineux : Capacity : 30,000 ( 2,700 for City)
At Molineux prior to last season it’s not been too happy a place for us. On our previous visit in 03/04 we lost 1-0 and our 2-0 win in 01/02 when we were heading for the Prem was only our first win after 4 losses and a draw. Prior to that though we’d won 3 and drawn 2.
In the Carling Cup, they’ve just played the rags in the 4th rd at the Cesspit, and went down 3-2 to a last minute goal.
Mick’s boys seem to be playing a tougher game this season but Silva, not Carlos, who’s annoyingly gone home again, will probably be targeted by Hunt and co. Otherwise we can expect a win, vital again, surely, to get us back on track………
The ground is the same as last time, completely re-developed but not as interesting as the old ground. We get half the paddock pitchside. Get your hats on ‘cos they sometimes drop stuff on us!
There’s some handy car parks nearby and you can grab a bite and a coffee at the local ASDA supermarket if you don’t fancy a pint.
Crowds were down to an average of 4,020 in 1985/86, and they currently stand at 27,702.
Away day zine is A Load Of Bull, who swap with KK, and is well worth picking up if you can.
