Wolves: Captain adamant club have progressed this term

Wolves captain Conor Coady feels the club had a season to be proud of despite limping over the finish line.

The Old Gold went into the final day in eighth place where they had been placed for most of the campaign, but after seeing their early lead evaporate at Anfield before falling to a 3-1 defeat to Liverpool, other results saw Bruno Lage’s side end up in 10th. 

Have Wolves improved under Lage?





It meant that the Wanderers closed out their campaign on a seven-game winless run and with just five wins in 17 league fixtures since January, having won 10 of their first 21 in a promising first half of the campaign.

However, the club captain is insistent that the season be looked at from an overall perspective as the club improved on their placement in 13th from last term and not to be judged on what could have been but for their faltering climax.

He told the club’s official site: “It’s huge. Huge. Not many people are looking that at the minute, a lot of people are talking about the last few weeks, but the last few weeks have been disappointing. But the whole season needs to be looked at as a whole.

“The season is 38 games and we’ve come into the season when not many people expected us to do so well, but we’ve had to listen to the manager all season and he’s been fantastic, the players have been fantastic and it’s important now we try to use that and move forward as much as we can to get better.”

TIF Thoughts on Wolves’ season…

Nuno Espirito Santo led the pack to back-to-back seventh-place finishes before a disappointing campaign saw them end up in 13th last season. While Lage initially appeared to revitalise the squad, their season did fizzle out.

The 46-year-old will now be tasked with refreshing his team ahead of the new campaign in order to improve the side further.

Which former Man United man almost joined Wolves?

Dave Edwards has called for the board to back the manager, with question marks surrounding the future of Ruben Neves – while Joao Moutinho, John Ruddy, Marcal and Romain Saiss are all out of contract,

It’s another Premier League club where a major rebuild could be on the cards in the off-season, and it will be fascinating to see what unfolds at Molineux as the Midlanders look to restart their quest for European qualification.
