Wolves can be bigger than Villa

Wolves can be bigger than Villa

Mick McCarthy has been described as the man to lead Wolves back into Europe and make them "bigger than Villa." - Express & Star

In a statement that is likely to get the attention of Villa fans everywhere, including Vital Football's own Mr Fear, Dave Mitchell the man who now manages Perth Glory believes that Wolves can be bigger than Villa.

The comments come in the Express & Star just as his Perth Glory side kick off against Wolves down under (we hope to bring you match updates during the game on our forum).

"People talk about Aston Villa being a massive club and they`re bigger than Wolves at the minute, but I think Wolves have the potential to be bigger.' said Mitchell, who McCarthy signed when at Millwall.

"First and foremost, they`ve got to establish themselves in the Premier League, then become the biggest club in the Midlands by challenging in that top eight - where you can be involved in Europe.

"It`s possible because Fulham have done it and that`s where you want to go."

Bold statement indeed, but certainly a confidence boost to McCarthy's men ahead of the new season.

Villa are a team seen to be in free-fall at the moment following them throwing away a decent chance of Champions League Football last season.

If Wolves get off to a decent start this term and emulate Hull's first part of the season last year, is it inconceivable that Wolves could finish above Villa this season?

Seen to be in freefall? There was me thinking that we'd just consolidated ourelves as a top six team. Hmm.

Oh come on, even I thought you had a good chance of making the top 4 last year and you blew big style.

This is the funniest article I have read in a long while but seriously Kidderminster Harriers could be a bigger team than Villa, all they have to do is get out of the Conference, get promoted from League two to League One, League One to the Championship, the Championship to the Prem, stay in the Prem (not get relegated after just one season!!!!), establish themselves as a mid-table team, establish themselves in the top 8, then in the top 6 and achieve Champions League football and then they'll be the biggest team in the Midlands, easy
