Nuno had a dream…to build a football team. I’ve eaten too much cheese or something. I see Eddie Howe the Bournemouth head Coach. He is in a dimly lit cellar somewhere. It has been freshly but badly painted in red and black gloss paint. It looks evil and dark. There is a strip light above […]

Pre-season goes well enough. We whup some ass in South Korea before drawing with Leverkusen and beating Bayern at the Theatre. Throughout these games we’re without Leon Goretzka, who’s injured, while Belotti and Sciacca are appearing for their countries at the Olympics. Of course both make it to the final, where Argentina beat Italy 2-1, […]

Compared to Bournemouth, Wolves’ attacking statistics this season betray their name and indicate a lack of a deadly, killer instinct. Going into their game at Molineux today, they had scored eight fewer league goals than their opponents, despite registering more passes, crosses and shots thus far in the campaign. Today, though, the tables were turned […]

WOLVES leapfrogged Bournemouth thanks to goals from Raul Jimenez’s and Ivan Cavaleiro as the Molineux club clocked up a hat-trick of top-flight victories for the first time in 38 years. It was way back in March 1980 when Wolves last celebrated three consecutive wins at this level – and Nuno Espirito Santo was just a kid living in a beach-side house in Principe off the West Coast of Africa. Wolves striker Raul Jimenez wheels away after opening the scoring against Bournemouth For Bournemouth there was more frustration as they slumped to their sixth defeat in seven games and the fact it was a rare blunder by the usually reliable Charlie Daniels made this latest setback even harder to take. The Cherries could, and probably should, have taken the lead after three minutes when they sprang Wolves’ offside trap and Josh King found himself in space just inside the penalty area. But the striker dithered and allowed Conor Coady to slide in and block his shot when King finally decided to pull the trigger. But that indecision was soon followed by a poor decision as the visitors shot themselves in the foot to gift Wolves an early lead. Bournemouth striker Josh King is challenged by Wolves skipper Conor Coady Charlie Daniels was under no real pressure out on the left touchline when he suffered a brainstorm and decided to drill the ball into the middle of the park where it was grateful seized on by Diego Jota. The Portuguese forward surged forward and burst past Nathan Ake before threading the ball beyond Bournemouth’s desperately retreating defence to the back post where Raul Jimenez was lurking. Wolves top scorer wasn’t about to pass up the gift and calmly slotted the ball home from seven yards to register his fifth goal of the season. It was the first time in eight league games that Wolves had scored in the first half at Molineux, since Ruben Neves’ 44th minute strike against Everton on the opening weekend of the season. Jimenez plants the ball past a stranded Asmir Begovic Raul Jimenez celebrates the opening goal for Wolves Junior Stanislas tried to respond with a volley on the turn but he skied his effort high and wide to sum up a miserable half for Eddie Howe’s men who had Steve Cook and Jefferson Lerma booked before losing Tyrone Mings to a back injury. Wolves claimed Cook could have been off with his defensive buddy just before the break when he sent Jota crashing as they chased Raul Jiminez’s brilliant through pass. But ref Simon Hooper rightly decided it was a fair shoulder charge by the Bournemouth man – even though it left Jota in a heap and in need of treatment. Not surprisingly the injured forward failed to reappear for the second half as Helder Costa replaced him at the restart. Eddie Howe was in need of an inspirational team talk to his brittle players, who were in grave danger of slumping to their sixth defeat in seven matches.

However the introduction of Cherries striker Callum Wilson, back from a hamstring injury, seemed to give his side an immediate confidence boost. First Stanislas smacked the crossbar from a curling free kick which had beaten Patricio all ends up, before Lerma had a long-range attempt plucked from under the bar by the Wolves ‘keeper. Nuno Espirito decided to shore up his side by bringing on Romain Saiss for kid midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White as his side held on grimly for their first clean sheet in nine matches. Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Ivan Cavaleiro celebrates scoring their second goal As Bournemouth charged forward in search of a stoppage time equaliser, Wolves suckered them with a killer second goal on the counter-attack. Sub Ivan Cavaleiro had been sent on as a time-wasting tactic in the final minute for Jimenez but the Portuguese frontman certainly made his mark. Three minutes of overtime had elapsed when he broke with intent and played a raking ball out to Helder Costa who returned his pass. With the Cherries defence totally exposed Cavaleiro galloped through and calmly beat Begovic to send the Wolves bench wild.
