Watford 3 Wolverhampton Wanderers 0 (02/02/2008) 03/02/2008Posted by Matt Rowson in Match reports.
Five thunks from Wolves
1- John Eustace. A signing after ig’s own heart – he was eulogising 20 minutes in, and the new man had barely touched the ball. He made a difference in any event – shouting, organising, and stabilising the whole side in a way that made last weekend’s shambles a distant memory. The team has a leader, at last.
2- Leigh Bromby. Wow, that throw. Distance, trajectory AND accuracy… Doris is going to love that. Defended well also – won a large number of headers for a smallish centreback.
3- Steve Kabba. Steve bloody Kabba. Terrace hero. Who’d have thought it? The “tackle” out on our right flank at the end of the first half is a highlight of the season already.
4- How much tamer did Wolves look as a consequence of our having a bit of spine, at last?
5- And a clean sheet to boot. Big hurrahs all round. More, please.
