England's most Irish club top of Premier League:

Wolves celebrate Kevin Doyle goal & perfect Premier start
"Wolves look a top ten side based on this performance,"
 - Kevin Kilbane

           The English club with most Irish players (and management) have won their first two games of the season for the first time since 1998 in what is quite a philip for former Ireland manager Mick McCarthy.  
          Five Republic of Ireland internationals were on the pitch during the course of the 90 minutes with former Cork City FC star Kevin Doyle bagging a cracking opener three minutes before half-time.   Matt Jarvis sealed the points on the stroke of half-time in a fully meritted win for the home side.  
Good day and great Premier League start for Mick McCarthy
          Republic of Ireland international Kevin Kilbane stated at the end of the game:  "Wolves look a top ten side based on this performance."  For the next week at least, the Midlands men will occupy a Champions League berth atop the Premier League.
         Wolves Chief Executive Jez Moxey speaking before kick-off today stated:  "Hopefully some day Wolves can get back into Europe."  With performances like today's;  that  "one day"  might come sooner than you think Mr.  Moxey.
