Second-season syndrome not an issue

Second-season syndrome not an issue

Christophe Berra, the Wolves and Scotland international defender is confident we can build on last seasons Premier League finish.

I think most Wolves fans think that we are better equipped for the season ahead compared to last year.

The obvious priority is avoiding the drop out of the Premier League. So many future plans depend on our survival, so that focus will not change.

"Our first aim is to stay in the Premier League but after that, we want to finish above where we did last season and we`ve got the capabilities to do that.' Christophe Berra told the Express & Star.

With so many clubs being relegated out of the Premier League during their second season after promotion. Second-season syndrome has been mentioned quite a bit during our build up to the new season.

Berra added: "A lot of people talk about the 'second-season syndrome`, but I think we`ve got a young squad that`s a year more experienced in the Premier League which will hopefully stand us in good stead for the future.

"We`ll carry on improving because we`ve got the right manager and we won`t take our foot off the pedal.'

In our current Vital Wolves Poll, we are asking: What Centre-back pairing will be the most successful? (Thanks to burgaboii wolvesfc for the suggestion).

77% of voters believe that Christophe Berra will be included in that most successful partnership either with Craddock (27%) or with Mouyokolo (50%).

So far only 16% have gone for a Mouyokolo & Craddock partnership, while 7% have sat on the fence.

To vote on the poll, please find the voting panel to the right of this article.
