Ask Wolves series two goes live

The complete second series of Ask Wolves is now available to supporters in a variety of mediums, as Jeff Shi, Bruno Lage and senior management from around the club provide an end of season update.

As with the first series of Ask Wolves which went live last summer, hundreds of questions were submitted and posed to staff by Sky Sports reporter and Wolves fan Jonny Phillips.

But unlike series one, which saw Shi and the club’s four general managers Scott Sellars, Matt Wild, Russell Jones and Vinny Clark discuss answers together, the second series has expanded to a wider selection of staff, with each episode focusing on questions that are specific to a particular staff member and their role at Wolves.

As well as Shi and the general managers, Ask Wolves series two also saw questions posed to Lage, head of performance and medicine Dr Rob Chakraverty, head of academy coaching/football operations Jon Hunter-Barrett, head of academy operations Laura Nicholls, strategic player marketing manager Matt Jackson and facilities, safety and security director Steve Sutton.

All 11 instalments of Ask Wolves series two are now live in video, written and audio format.
