With Wolverhampton Wanderers enjoying a very good return to the Premier League in the season of 2018/19, with only two games left in the campaign, thoughts naturally turn to next season.
Seventh place looks like it’s ours and that could mean a potential European adventure and we also enjoyed a great run in the FA Cup, so there’s every reason for positivity this year – despite naturally having some low points.
With our final Molineux game coming against Fulham this weekend, but we round the year out with a trip to Anfield on May 12, head coach Nuno Espirito Santo has confirmed that patient 25-year-old goalkeeper Will Norris is in line for his Premier League debut in one of our final two matches.
Having been third choice this year behind Rui Patricio and John Ruddy, our gaffer told the E&S that if things go to plan, Norris’ patience and attitude will be rewarded with a top flight debut.
“A big, big hand. Will is with us all the games, and the way he’s been is fantastic. There are three goalkeepers but only one place. Last season, Will had a chance to play in the Carabao Cup and the FA Cup. Things have changed this season, but Will’s behaviour has not changed. The way he commits himself to the work has not changed. It’s even improved because the group know each other better. We must give Will a chance. Hopefully, I will try. I would like to finish the season with all the players having minutes in the Premier League. I would really, really like that.”
Top stuff from Nuno in my humble. Maybe it’s more symbolic or simply sentimental, but it’s little touches like this that keep the spirit going amongst everyone in a dressing room as they know their chance will eventually come as long as they justify that chance.
