[W]hile the rest of the country wasdistracted by events at Old Trafford, a corner of south-east Londonfocused on the departure of another long-serving gaffer. Though Kenny Jackett'sdepartureas Millwall managerprobably cause any palpitations on Wall Street, it was no less a surprise to supporters than Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement was to Manchester United.
Staring in the face of two consecutive relegations, supporters of Wolverhampton Wanderers took to the pitch today after their team lost 2-1 at Molineux.
An angry mob of Wolves supporters invaded the pitch, kicked and pushed stewards and kicked down an advertising board. They gesticulated at the Wolves board, and displayed their anger at the team's dire position.
Wolverhampton Wanderers chief executive Jez Moxey has revealed that the club would like to keep hold of Jack Robinson next season. The defender joined Wolves earlier this year on a loan basis from Premier League outfit Liverpool. Having been impressed with the 19-year-old's performances, Moxey has admitted that Wolves would be open to the possibility of Robinson remaining at Molineux for another campaign.
They left it late at Molineux last night. Two minutes into stoppage time at the end of the Championship match between Wolverhampton Wanderers, Bakary Sako swept the ball into the roof of the Watford goal to earn Wolves a point, but this was a match the result of which proved to be more useful to the two clubs' rivals at the top and foot of the league table than to those on the pitch or in the stands.
It has been reported to me that the famous blogger Paddy lost his footing while trying to live on the bald-headed manager Stale Solbakken. He is now a convalescent but may yet rise up from the dead and start to report about his great love Wolverhampton Wanderers again. It is no way to say when [...]
We are delighted to welcome this morning the considerable writing talents of Rob Doolan, an alumnus of The Seventy Two and purveyor of the wonderful blog The 90s Football Party. Rob trades on twitter under the moniker @ChiefDelilah and his collection of pieces for our sister site - on topics as wide ranging as Chesterfield's FA Cup run and Chris Waddle's miserable spell at Burnley - can be enjoyed here.
At the end of last season Wolverhampton Wanderers became the first club to be relegated in two successive seasons from the top division of English football on two separate occasions, and while younger supporters continue to scream for the heads of owner Steve Morgan and Chief Executive Jez Moxey, older supporters may be forgiven a chill running down their spine as they contemplate the fact that things could yet get worse for the Black Country club before they improve.
Relegation has a habit of creeping up on you. Throughout the closing weeks of the season, the natural disposition of the football supporter is to look up the table, to calculate how many matches are going to result in three points, and often to studiously ignore the evidence of our own eyes. We know that the team has been out of sorts for most of the last eight months, but we hope amongst hopes that they will find reserves of something from somewhere and will manage to turn it around.
It's time for our final Match Of The Past from the Championship, and this evening we feature Wolverhampton Wanderers, and six matches from the years between 1969 and 1988. We kick off with a trip to White Hart Lane to play Tottenham Hotspur, and this is the first of three matches from three consecutive seasons from the early 1970s.
We continue our collection of matches from the past of the clubs of the Football League Championship this evening with Watford. Our first match comes from the 1969/70 season, and is their FA Cup quarter-final match against Liverpool from Vicarage Road. We then skip forward to the start of the following decade, for another FA Cup match, this time against non-league Harlow Town, who the Hornets seemed to have more trouble with than much of their opposition in the league as they shot through the divisions from the Fourth Division to the First Division in the years between 1978 and 1982.

Which player has the best win percentage at every Premier League club that has played in the top flight of England from 1992-2013?
Some of the findings may surprise you. Out of the 45 teams who have played in the Premier League since it was founded, there are memorable names from the history of British football with greats such as Alan Shearer.
Gary Neville does it once again with brilliant analysis that you're not going to see anywhere else on television. In the pre-match for Aston Villa-Manchester City on Sky Sports, Neville dissected the defensive mistakes that both...

Worrying news for Manchester United fans tonight after Phil Jones limped off in the second half against Reading in the FA Cup. The injury could cause the versatile footballer, who can play defense just as well as midfield, to miss United's massive match in the Champions League against Real Madrid.

With the transfer window coming up, we can all count on one thing for certain. There will be non-stop chatter about what teams must do if they are going to "push for the top" or "avoid regulation". Rumors and arguments will be rampant. The blogosphere will be on full hype 24/7. There will be no peace until the window finally, blessedly closes with people blathering up to the last minute about possible deals.

We continue and this is the penultimate one for this division: League One comes next our series of archive matches of the clubs of the Football League Championship with one of the grandest of them all: Sheffield Wednesday. Founded, as The Wednesday in 1867 (and this, for those that didn't already know it, was a name which the club kept until as late as 1929), the club joined the Football League in 1892 and would go on to become one of its more illustrious members, albeit one with a tendency to have its fortunes fluctuate a little both on and off the pitch.
This afternoon, we continue our series of archive matches from the clubs of the Football League Championship with Ipswich Town. A league championship win in 1962 proved to be a flash in the pan for this club, whose greatest years would come more than a decade after this win, and we have seven matches from the years between 1972 and 2000, with our focus very much on the decade between 1972 and 1982.
The more eagle-eyed amongst you may have noticed that we're slowing down on this series now that
the new season is properly under way. We'll work our way through the rest of the Football League
over the next few weeks and months, but tonight we continue with Crystal Palace and we have six
matches from the years between 1971 and 1990.
Having dropped from the Premier League last season, Wolverhampton Wanderers now find themselves fighting a second successive relegation in the Championship bottom three. The Midlands side managed a 2-1 victory over Bristol City at Molineux, but goalkeeper Carl Ikeme had a bad day at the office after letting a backpass from defender David Davis slip through his legs.

As an American, when I was first introduced to the Premier League I was intrigued by the idea of relegation to a lower league along with lower tier teams moving up. I will admit that it took me a bit to truly grasp this. Since then I have enjoyed this aspect of the EPL and watching the battle at the bottom.
A goal from Danny Batth two minutes into stoppage time at the end of Saturday afternoon's match at Molineux between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Leeds United was enough to rescue a critical point for the home side, one which kept them out of the relegation places, above Barnsley on goal difference alone.
The coming nine season will be the fifth since Stoke City ascended back to the Premier League,
and in surviving comfortably in this division they continue to frustrate the game's self-appointed
purists. Stoke remain the nearest thing that the division has to an antithesis of the self-image of
twenty-first century football.
With less than 48 hours to go, Rob Freeman interrupts the Premier League Previews to bring the
first of three previews of the football league. In a break from tradition, the previews are mainly
predictionless, considering that most clubs won't finalise their squads until the transfer window
closes at the end of August.

Rodolfo Borrell's unbeaten U21s have secured a place in the Barclays Premier U21 Elite Group, which will be played after Christmas. The 1-1 draw between Crystal Palace and second placed Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday ensured the Academy side will progress to the next stage. Borrell's side are still on target to win their National Group 3 section with just three games remaining, and need just one point to secure top spot.
