Bournemouth Wolves Premier League Tactical Analysis

In a game marred by some horrific refereeing decisions, Bournemouth and Wolves shared the spoils at the Vitality Stadium. The man in the middle, Roger East, got a number of things wrong including, but not exclusive to, a handball by Chris Mepham in the penalty area which went unpunished, an elbow from Jefferson Lerma which only warranted a yellow card and awarding a penalty when supposed contact was made outside the area.

Rather than looking at those decisions, we will analyse how Bournemouth and Wolvesmatched each other pound for pound throughout the 90 minutes and how, ultimately, a draw was a fair result. Admittedly, both Bournemouth and Wolves only scored from their respective goals from the spot. All the same, let’s embark on a journey to find out what happened as the rabid Wolves of Wolverhampton faced the Cherries of Bournemouth.

I've got an unhealthy obsession with Wolves, Wolverhampton Wanderers, WWFC, whatever you fancy calling us today. When we win I'm on top of the world, when we lose I'm a nightmare to be around. It's been that way for as long as I can remember and people tell me that you're meant to grow out of it, however, I don't envisage that happening anytime soon. Anyway, I'm the lead analyst on here and while I try and keep my opinion out of my writing, sometimes it's too difficult to do that. I also use the terms 'we' and 'us' when talking about Wolves and I do try and remain impartial although it's debatable whether or not I do. In hindsight, I'm probably over critical of Wolves in the same manner that I'm over complimentary, so I guess it all balances itself out in the end. Grab yourself a cuppa and have a look around.
