Probable Team Lineup: Wolves v Chelsea
I’m awfully late, I know, and haven’t commented on the Bolton game. I will do that later, but can say that it was a game of two halves, simply because McCarthy opted for the far-fetched solution to the inner-midfield problem by putting Ward in the role. He didn’t find the right position and that made the whole team unbalanced. Five times (at least) offside for SEB is also one of the reasons for Wolves not winning the game. How hard is it to avoid it? Is he PL material? I begin to doubt it.
For today Wolves has two new players and one coming back available for team selection. I believe Mick will use two of these from start, Kightly in the wide role to the right and Frimpong – on loan from Arsenal – beside Henry at defensive mid. Only 48 hours since the last game and some of the players – especially those on the midfield, will still be a bit tired in their bodies after the Bolton game.
It will be interesting to watch Frimpong and I believe that he will be competition to Henry first hand, but the unavailability of O’Hara and Milijas means he will be playing together with Henry in this game, and that could be a good solution against a team like Chelsea.
Chelsea have big problems with their team and haven’t impressed lately. It’s not impossible to take points from them at home for Wolves and I think that our players see that probability and I hope they take the chance of grabbing all three. 2-0 to Wolves and goals by Henry (!) and Kightly.

UP THE WOLVES!!!
