Jody Craddock for England?!

Our prolific defender Jody Craddock was picked for the official Premier League Team Of The Week after his terrific display against Aston Villa.

Craddock is now on the 35th spot in the official Actim Index of the 100 best players in the Premier League and also as number nine among the defenders.

If only counting central defenders he is the fifth best in the Premier League. John Terry, Chelsea, is the only English central defender with higher scores according to the Actim Index. Jody Craddock for England?!

Jody Craddock spoke today to the Official Wolves Site about the unfolding of the season:

It’s the longest unbeaten run we’ve had at this level and that’s a real boost for the lads’ confidence, and that’s what we need to stay in this division. We aren’t safe until it’s mathematically done and dusted, so we just need to keep going and get as many points as we can. I’m not sure how many points we need – maybe six – but Hull winning at the weekend, the gap to safety was cut from seven to five so we just need to pick up as many as we can.”

A lot of people thought we were going to go down, and it isn’t over yet. There’s still a long way to go until we’re mathematically safe. We can’t be thinking we’ve got enough points because we haven’t yet. We need to keep doing what we’ve been doing.

  1. Impressive.
    That’s all I have to say.
    Jody is simply impressive.
    Hopefully we’ll add a good LB during the summer to add to our defense.

    • Yes! We need to strengthen in many positions and I really hope that we will have better luck than last. But we will be in a much better position than before this season.
