Wolves Championship odds, news and free bets

Stale Solbakken has take charge at Molineux with the sole objective of guiding Wolves back to the Premier League.

Ins: Bjorn Sigurdarson (undisclosed amount), Frank Nouble (free transfer), Tongo Doumbia (loan)

Outs: Sam Vokes (undisclosed amount), Adlene Guedioura (undisclosed amount), Nathaniel Mendez-Laing (undisclosed amount), Louis Harris (free transfer), Ashley Hemmings (released), James Spray (released), Sam Winnall (released), Johnny Gorman (loan), Jake Cassidy (loan), Leigh Griffiths (loan), Adlene Guedioura (loan)

Strengths: Stale Solbakken. You may not recognise the name but you are bound to be amazed by his past achievements in management. After being forced to retire after a serious heart attack, Solbakken kept his passion for football alive by becoming manager of HamKam, where he led them to the domestic title, before taking the reins of FC Copenhagen.

A further five titles were clinched by the Norwegian during his five years in that role. It’s a list of accomplishments which is sure to make former Wolves manager Mick McCarthy blush.

Weaknesses: A wobbly build-up to life back in the Championship. It is hard enough finishing rock bottom of the Premier League, 12 points adrift of safety and going out of the top tier of English football without so much as a whimper.

But then Wolves fans have been stung once more by the fact that they have had to hear about their club struggling to a draw in pre-season action against Shrewsbury.  They then lost 2-0 against Southampton – who take their spot in the Premier League this term.

Solbakken may have a proven track record but he’s going to have to dig deep to turn around such a downbeat Wolves squad.

Last season’s performance: Wolves finished 20th in the Premier League last season and were relegated to the Championship long before the last game was played. During the entire campaign, fans only saw their club win five domestic games in a very bruising season.

If they were a celebrity: Jimmy Carr. Both have seen their names take a plunge into the mud in recent months and now face stiff challenges to shake off the negativity and climb their way back up the ladder to success.

You might not have known: Wolves have one of the most celebrated histories in English football. In fact, they were one of the founder members of the Football League in 1888 and finished third in the league during its inaugural campaign. See, you just have to take the good with the bad when your club is that decorated.
