It`s official - Wolves have beaten the drop and will be playing another 38 games of Barclays Premier League football next year.
Burnley`s 4-0 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday means Wolves are now mathematically safe and won`t be dropping down into the npower Championship.
What a fantastic achievement for everyone at Wolves! From Chairman Steve Morgan, right down to Mick McCarthy and his backroom staff.
For a squad that was initially criticised for the lack of experience and quality in-depth, they ain`t half done well!
Wolves now look like they may finish higher than three established Premier League sides in Wigan, West Ham and Portsmouth. Surely this is more than anyone could have hoped for or expected.
So as far as I`m concerned…BBC 606′s Danny Baker along with Talksport`s Adrian Durham and Stan Collymore have got a lot to answer for after they all slated Wolves during the season and said they didn`t have a chance of going up. I remember listening to Call Collymore on the way back from Burnley.
He said: "Wolves may have won today but mark my words this will be a Championship fixture next season."
Huge credit must go to Mick McCarthy for sticking to his guns and playing 4-5-1 for the second half of the season. Wins against Spurs, Burnley and West Ham have been pivotal in that time.
Creditable draws at Aston Villa and Fulham boosted fans` morale whilst battling performances at home to both Merseyside teams should be remembered.
Now that the important games are out the way Wolves will be looking to finish in 15th position with wins against relegated Pompey and Sunderland who sit one place above Wolves.
Wolves` fans must stay realistic because next year will be just as hard if not harder. The board will look for progression but it should be no shock to fans if Wolves finish 15th or lower.
A few quality signings to supplement the decent squad we have are a must to stay competitive and not let clubs in a similar position to ours get too far ahead.
UP THE WOLVES!!
