Glenn Hoddle knows better than most how the press can manipulate words.
Tonight, speaking to Skysports News he played down any talk of a rift between himself and Wolves Chairman Rick Hayward generated by the media.
'He was very positive in many ways, but people just want to focus on some of the frustration shown.' said Hoddle
'He's Chairman of the football club, he's got every right to say what he feels.
'He was very balanced, but people only looked at it one way.'
'Same old story, they've taken out what they want to take out. It's not the first time, and it wont be the last.
'If you dont communicate with each other, you can have a bust up.
'You have to look at the bigger picture.'
Wolves hard fought 1-0 victory on Tuesday night at Burnley gave fans renewed hope that their season isn't over just yet.
The players rallied to answer recent criticism regarding lack of effort and put ina gutsy display that brought the points home to Molineux.
And Glenn Hoddle hopes it was just a taster of what is to come as the season draws toward its conclusion
'The bottom line is we havent given up anything. Until its mathematically impossible to get into the playoffs we'll give every ounce of energy we've got. Anyone that was at Burnley could see that.'
Wolves next game is at home to The Tractor Boys on Saturday, which on the smooth Molineux surface should be a more fluid game.
Ipswich are unbeaten in six, have won their last three, and are level on points with Wanderers who have a game in hand over their rivals.
Wolves will certainly need to be at their sharpest to get a maximum haul from the tense encounter.
'Ipswich are a good side in a good vein of form.' said Hoddle
'Its a different test to Tuesday. It will be a different type of game.
'The way we both pass it, probably who is going to take their chances will win it.'
With Tomasz Frankowsi edging closer to his first Wolves goal, Carl Cort starting to regain his form, and Jeremie Aliadiere gaining on full match fitness, Wolves fans can genuinely go into the match with renewed confidence.
Another three points and they just might start to believe Hoddle's men could be contenders for the Championship play-offs.
