Wolves beat Blackpool 2-0 at Molineux last weekend to make it an impressive five wins from their last six Championship games. However, that run has been completely overshadowed by the sad news last week that their former chairman Sir Jack Hayward had passed away in Florida, aged 91. Hayward owned his boyhood club for seventeen years and pumped in £70 million of his own cash, which helped them finally clinch promotion to the Premier League back in 2003.
The boys discuss his life and legacy with David Evans, host of the award-winning ‘Wolves Fancast‘, which was named ‘Best Football Podcast’ at the 2014 Football Blogging Awards. We also touch on the signing of Benik Akobe from Arsenal and their chances of promotion via the play-offs.
Elsewhere, it’s all change once again at struggling Charlton Athletic. The Addicks were thrashed 5-0 at Watford on Saturday and still haven’t won in the league since early November, a run which last week led to the sacking of Bob Peeters. Former Standard Liege boss Guy Luzon has taken his place, becoming the clubs’ fourth manager in less than a year. The boys are joined by Alex Stedman from the radio show and podcast ‘Charlton Live‘, to find out more about a troubling time in south east London.
We also discuss a crucial win for Stuart Pearce, a changing of colours at Cardiff and Massimo Cellino losing another appeal – plus we’ve a new chant for Darren Pratley and the announcement of a special live podcast…
