Will we kick on from Sunday’s victory against the Boro and display the early season form that brought us so much of joy and expectation? Or will we slip into our customary-state- of collapse, this time against a very formidable opponent which deserves to be where it is right now; at the top of the most gruelling and competitive league in Europe?
I said at the end of Sunday’s game that, somehow, I don’t trust this lot. History has shaped the way I think and feel. I’ll concede that mine is a grim prospect, indeed, but I feel that tonight represents a bridge too far to cross. I see our defence being put under enormous pressure; fumbling, tumbling and stumbling all over the Molineux turf and our midfield being completely overshadowed and out-muscled. It will be even more exasperating if TC persists with his lone-striker format.
I know that the eternal optimists will lead me to the slaughter house for my overtly dark and despairing outlook. In response to them, I protest: blame me on history; suffice it to say that I am praying fervently that I be proved WRONG. In which event, I shall be the first to leap off the roof top and sing out in delight.November 22, 2017 at 7:47 pm #1560573
Calm down dear friend – it’s just a commercial! OK it is about 3 points but for me the main thing is that we build on the result and performance in the last game. There is plenty of scope for improvement even with the present squad which I have roundly criticised.
I am not going to keep harping about the merits of TC. Indeed I will not say another word about him until such time as he leaves or he earns my respect.
Tonight I expect a tight, hard and scrappy game. The defence looks a lot more robust with Philips and Vieira in front of it. The resources on the bench look better. Let’s hope for a bit more play from midfield rather than banging the ball from back to front aimlessly. Maybe we can nick a point?

OK so what we got is a comprehensive tonking from a team that is way, way ahead of anything else in the Championship.
Let’s us accept it move on.
Bring on Barnsley (which I am going to miss because of a blessed Wedding but will watch the match much later in the day)
We are in trouble – have no doubt about it. Bah!

Mr Christensen remarked, quite categorically, in his interview that the gulf between Leeds United and Wolves is not that vast; an unbelievable comment – if ever there was one.
I am now convinced that the man, without realizing it, is “a dwarf dressed in giant’s robes”. The wretched coach is being used as a front man to further the broader designs of the firm of Radzianni, Orta, Kinnear and Co. I pity Christensen in a sense; he’s essentially a decent, honest man albeit a naive and inexperienced football head coach.

Whereas we were lulled into a false sense of normality post Massimo the reality seems to be that the underlying path is a variation on the previous theme. You begin to ask how much we are changing for the better and enviously have a thought about owners who come into clubs with real financial clout and football nous.
To take fans for mugs, especially ours, is naive and stupid in the extreme. Sometimes it is best to say nothing at all or even acknowledge that the other guys were better. This is not the first time that TC has uttered nonsense like this.
Barnsley is another make or break game. We are sliding rapidly down the table and I honestly have no hopes to even match or better last seasons table position. The best that can be achieved is to develop a level of consistency and solidity so that we can build on some firm foundations.
The leadership and management of the club need to sort out their strategy for the short, medium and long term. The so called Promised Land is as far away as it has been for a decade.
The main thing for me is that we find a couple of leaders on the pitch which we have been sadly lacking for years. You have to go back to 2006 to find a decent captain in a certain Gary Kelly. After that I cannot think of a single player who has rightly been fit to wear the armband.

I think Phoenix just to pick up on your point regarding fans being treated as mugs. We have been treated as mugs for the past 15 years, and in all honesty not a lot has been done about it. We seem to attract shyster after shyster, and too often eagerly supported by the happy clappy brigade. Why does a club of such potential and size continue to attract pot to pee in owners? That seems to be the bigger question. I recall Revie thinking this club was cursed, it certainly feels that way.
On to more immediate matters, I can’t see getting owt against Barnsley, TC should never been allowed to learn his trade at a club like this. Orta is a another clown on the payroll who’s recruitment of players has generally been appalling.
I’m off back to bed, getting ready for another night down at the Rosco, I bought a new pair of Farah’s and should go well with my Stetson. They do a mean pie n peas, a real pleaser for the ladies.
