Wahey, that’s more like it. Wolves 0 Great Danes 1 was the kind of result that we needed for our playoff push. Only another 8 wins needed out of our nine games…… As for the match itself, it was probably our overall best performance since Brum this season (and I include Blackburn in that). We bossed the game early doors thru to last closing and reduced Wolves to one attempt.
Us? Well, the impressive David Neilsen nearly netted after a minute, we just kept pushing forward for the most part, and when Neil Ardley struck (off the post it has to be said) we got our just reward. We could have got 2 or 3 more if the truth was known, unlike Brum though we didn’t quite put the chances away. Interesting that Hughes was dropped – when he came on it seemed to affect our shape a little. None the less, this was a great performance and well worth the, er, skank I managed to do to get in. Ho hum.
Plus points: We won. We didn’t concede a goal. Solid defense. MOM was definitely Holloway – he was sublime. Nobody else played badly. Great save from Kelvin when it looked like Wolves could have sneaked back into it. Good use of the wings, it caught them out time and time again. People like Sooper Cooper and David “no nickname” Neilsen are justifying TB’s transfer policy now. No Nickname clapping us off twice when he was subbed – and without prompting too. Sweet.
Minus points: Yeah, OK, we only won by 1 goal and I think we sat back a little bit after it, but I would be churlish if I wrote it down and put it up (er….)
Nice: Molineux. For the uninitiated, it’s built by a flyover in the centre of town in a valley next door to a big Asda. Shows what could be done, eh WFC?
Not so nice: The half-pounder I had outside the ground. I think it had bubonic plague in it, let alone BSE. Definitely not as good as West Brom’s slabs of meat.
Pricks: The Wolves fans who congregate by the away fans. Silent for about 89 minutes of the game, only waking up after we scored purely to make threatening gestures towards us. Next time, don’t bother turning up, eh? Oh, and you’re about as hard as my dick after watching a porno with Bella Emberg, ie not very.
Truth is stranger than fiction: Do you realise this is our first ever win at Molineux?
Question: What the fuck does Molineux mean anyway?
Quotes: (1) “If we can maintain this [run of form], anything can happen” – TB. Anything can happen, hmm. OK, let’s see – Crystal Palace finally admit they’re shit. Hey, you said that anything could happen, Terry………. (2) “Wimbledon were a class apart” – Wolves Official Site commentator. That’s what we like to hear.
So, was it worth it? No, of course it wasn’t worth us going just north of Birmingham to watch us totally outplay a team who we’ve struggled to beat in the past and reduce the home crowd to leaving 10 minutes early. God, what a stoooooopid question…..
In a nutshell: The playoffs beckon. Maybe.
