BBC-pundit impressed by Wolves players

The pundits starts to notice our players terrific performances lately and the former striker now BBC-pundit Garth Crooks today named both Richard Stearman and Jamie O’Hara in his Team Of The Week. The latter is also featured in this weeks Official Barclay’s Team.

Crooks writes about Stears:

This man was instrumental in an impressive victory over Blackpool. Having niggled and provoked DJ Campbell to distraction, the defender played his part in a superb result for Wolves. Definitely a wolf in sheep’s clothing!

“Wolves have won 38% of their games with Stearman in the starting XI this season, compared to just 13% without him.”

And about Jamie O’Hara:

“Whatever he may lack in ability, he makes up for in effort. If ever a player deserved a goal against Blackpool, he did.”

“O’Hara completed all four of his dribbles and only Nigel Reo-Coker (70) made more successful passes than the Wolves player’s 67 this weekend.”

Stears and O’Hara certainly was two of our best players in the weekend and it is sad that O’Hara is not allowed to participate against his home club Tottenham on Sunday.

On the other hand we have Ned Milijas – rested against Blackpool and rearing to go – who I imagine wants to show by performance that he is a man for the starting eleven for the rest of the season. I imagine he has to set up or score a couple himself to convince McCarthy about that. It’s good with competition!

  1. What is crooks on about? with O’Hara – “whatever he may lack in ability” is the guy blind (having played for that shit up the road he must be) O’Hara oozes quality more than crooks ever had.

  2. Garth Crooks always talks shit O’Hara is a very skilled player just look at the goal he scored against the Albion that didnt take any skill at all did it Crooks what a prick.

  3. Milijas for al his skill at dead ball situations seems to disappear during open play. He certainly wont displace Henry or OHara so doubt he will see much action after Spurs…

    Yes, was a great game against pool, but stronger opposition with 11 men awaits… lets see how we are on Sunday.
