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?
