To be or not to be five. That is the question – for Bolton

I’ve just seen an article stating that Bolton – Wolves next opponent – have not scored in over eight hours of play in the Premier League. Interesting! And very reassuring.

If we look at Wolves last five in the Premier and compare it with Bolton. They have scored zit while we have scored four. An interesting fact is that Wolves played with five in the middle and one up top in those games, changing their formation and way of play.

Bolton Wanderers have gone the other way round. they used to play with only one up top, but Coyle – their new manager – has changed that. Probably hoping for a better attack and more goals. Bit it seem to have backfired.

For Wolves we have been able to conclude that our change of formations have abled us to have more chances on goal and – as a consequense – more goals.

It will be interesting to see if Coyle will insist to play with two forwards against Wolves on Saturday. The pressure on him to win will be very strong.

I think that will work in Wolves favour. I believe he will make the wrong choice and play a 4-4-2-formation. I believe that they will go down. On Saturday and at the end of the season.

  1. Those are some strong last words Paddy.
    I agree though, Wolves will stay, and we’ll prevail.
    We’re getting so much better now, and we finally found our right formation.
    Guedioura is amazing and simply, when the injured players are back, I don’t think we’ll be able to lose as much.

    • Yepp. I strongly believe that we will win this one. Everything is working for us. And they have a match tomorrow against Tottenham in the Cup, so some of their players will not be 100% on Saturday. We are a better team, with a better formation and balance and better form. Three points!

  2. Wolves do have the abilty of breaking teams losing / non scoring runs, let’s hope Saturday will be different!
