Conor Coady has spoken to the club’s website about the impact of playing without fans for most of the season.

The captain feels Wolves missed their supporters more than any other team in the Premier League.

The campaign represented a step back for Wolves, finishing 13th having been European contenders previously.

Coady feels that the lack of fans was a huge factor in that, and of course Nuno Espirito Santo’s side were hit badly by injuries too.

“It’s everything, the voice, the energy, the feeling of the game, they give you an energy – I can’t explain it, it’s a feeling you’ll never describe,” said Coady about the boost of having fans back.

“It’s incredible, we’ve missed them more than anything. We’re the one team in the league who missed them the most, I’ll be honest.


“But hopefully we’ll get them back more and more towards the start of next season and go again.”

Coady was included in England’s 33-man provisional squad for the European Championship yesterday.

He will expect to be in the 26-man final party, having captained the side on occasion in recent months.

His leadership skills are vital to a group who are perhaps low on talkers and organisers, and he is of course perfectly suited to a back three if Gareth Southgate goes that way.

The games at Wembley will take place in front of a reduced capacity, but those fans should have an impact on England and the return of full houses at Molineux next season would be a huge boost for Wolves.
