'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Riding high

16 down, 12 wins, three losses, two draws, 37 points, a plus 14 goal difference and a six point gap between us and second.

Great news all round that certainly has everyone at Molineux smiling, including hard to impress fans.

I'm stopping short of calling them doomsayers only because history has taught us that a lead in November by no means guarantees anything at Chamionship, or any other level for that matter.

At the same point last season Watford held a plus 14 gd, and an 8 point gap, yet only finished a goal better off than Wolves on the final day of the season.

The team and the fans aren't lacking in the kind of confidence that breeds success.

What both need to avoid is over confidence.

The kind that looks at the fixture list and sees foregone conclusions,takes fitness and form for granted, and perhaps like Watford last year, believes that players who have been key so far this season could easily be replaced in January when the Premiership chequebooks come calling.

It's doubtful McCarthy would sanction any such sale, and it looks unlikely that any player will be handing in a transfer request,

o matter what mischief the red tops try to conjure.

The supposed goalkeeping crisis that has kept many hacks busy since Waynne Hennessey found himself benched now appears to be over, with Matt Murray's loan to Hereford reducing McCarthy's options to 1 from 2.

Not that we believe there ever was a crisis.

Young 'keeper in made to fight for his place shocker, with the added spice of interest from unquoted managers who tend to look for experience between the sticks anyway.

Nice headlines, very little substance.

Matt Jarvis is also well on the way to recovery, with a return to action pencilled in for as early as a fortnights time, and his return could not come any sooner.

Sure, the points have continued to rack up, but the snarl and bite that was Wolves twin wing attacks has been somewhat muted since his enforced layoff.

Next up, it's the dreaded trip to St Mary's, not a place that holds happy memories for most Wolves fans.

But the chance of payback time for last seasons Molineux slaughter should ensure that the match is played at a suitably high tempo pace.

Time to throw the Saints to the Wolves, or will St Mary's once again leave Wolves fans feeling like sinners?
