Wolverhampton Wanderers journalist Tim Spiers has been praising Wolves midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White, who is currently on loan with Swansea City

This comes after Spiers recently made an appearance on The Athletic’s Wolves-themed podcast The Molineux View where he spoke about a number of topics concerning the West Midlands club.

To kick off this quiz on Raul Jimenez, what is his current squad number for the Old Gold?

On the subject of Gibbs-White, Spiers had this to say about the Englishman and his performance for Swansea City against Wycombe Wanderers last weekend.

He said: “Gibbs-White ran the show [against Wycombe], he was brilliant. He was picking up the ball in pockets of space, he was popping up here, there and everywhere in the box, he could have had a couple of goals, he was brilliant.

“Don Goodman [who] was commentating was raving about him, waxing lyrical, gave him man of the match, deservedly so. [It was] exactly the kind of display that Wolves needed at West Ham, but hey, no, this is levels and Wycombe, like I said, were diabolical really.

“It’s great to see him playing and thriving and he’s started three games in a row in the league, I doubt he’s ever done that for Wolves.

“[He’s] getting regular football, getting a chance to shine under a manager he knows from England youth duty in Steve Cooper and it’s working out really well for him.

“It’s an initial burst, he’s got to keep it up, there are 43 games left to go in the Championship, but he couldn’t have made a better start.”

After making his way through the youth system at Wolves, the 20-year-old made his senior debut for the Old Gold back in January 2017 under Paul Lambert.

Overall, the midfielder has made a total of 70 appearances for Wolves but has only managed to score one goal and provide one assist along the way.

In Swansea’s match against Wycombe, Gibbs-White made five key passes, took two shots with one on target and ultimately earned himself a respectable match rating of 6.83/10 for his overall performance (per WhoScored).

Do you think Gibbs-White could be a regular first team player for Wolves next season?





TIF Thoughts…

It’s great to hear this praise that Spiers has for Gibbs-White on his latest appearance for Swansea.

Hopefully, as Spiers said on the podcast, the 20-year-old can continue to impress whilst out on loan throughout the rest of the season and develop his game even further.
