Were Wolves good or were Albion bad?

Were Wolves good or were Albion bad?

Not going to bore people with a novel, but as has happened before this season, are we getting carried away looking at our own positives and not looking hard enough at the Albion's negatives?

At least we are not looking to far ahead concerning form, only two games left, Sunderland with only bragging rights finishing above Newcastle to play for and Blackburn who will maybe already be safe by Judgement day!

One win I think will do it, maybe two draws, Birmingham I feel may not get another point!

I think Wigan will beat the Hammers and send them down, though a draw would be a good result for us and I do think Blackpool will beat Bolton.

If Blackburn don't get a result against Man Utd and lose to us final day they would finish on 39 points as could Birmingham with Blackburn's goal difference maybe saving them.

I'm going for West Ham, Blackpool and Birmingham and hope that if we do survive we have learnt our lessons from this year and only bring in proven quality players during the close season.

I only hope the season does not finish with certain top teams fielding weakened sides due to other commitments and making life easier for some relegation threatened teams.

UTW.

Akela, this is what worries me. As you say, we have been here before, with good results being followed by bloody awful ones. I have written reports, stating that if we play like this in subsequent matches, we would survive easily ... only for the team to rubbish that statement in the next match. Birmingham, Blackpool and WBA were dreadful at Molineux, while we were lucky to stay in front at Villa Park or gain a draw against WHU at home. WBA's attack could have counteracted their woeful defence last Sunday, had they had more luck upfront. They're just the matches I can recall off the top of my head and I know that there are others I could cite.

Thanks Tallaght- theres a nod to Tottenham on the Baggies Debagged thread a few below this one. I was watching Premiership archives on Fox last night, your 4-2 over Newcastle in 94 and was saying that the games against Tottenham are always something to look forward to when the fixtures are released. I remember thinking after our 3-3 draw that that game probably reminded most of us what football is all about. I was also dreading relegation beyond any other disapointment as a Wolves fan on multi levels mainly based around the age and quality of the squads foundation, the ownership, enjoying continuity of management and the increasing of the capacity. Everything was pointing in the right direction for the club yet still we find ourselves in this position with two games to go. I also think Wigan and Blackpool will raise the roof this weekend because these are their final home games and neither has much to look forward to otherwise on the last day. In typically annoying fashion I think Birmingham will get a result against Fulham and place their marker for next season. A league cup to go with their previous haul of a winning raffle ticket does not suddenly make them a club I want to see in the top flight. I think Blackburn are the one to watch though. Defeat at Old Trafford could see them come to us knowing a defeat could relegate them on the last day. Wins for Wigan AND Blackpool this weekend still seems somewhat unlikely so maybe a point keeping us out of the bottom three going into the last game would prove a reasonable ask. Completely missing the point of course, I will end with it. Albion were terrible at the back on Saturday and they had enough chances to have got something from the game yet whilst they missed chances who would have guessed Phil Neville would be arrowing a shot into the top corner against us. We missed our own chances and as for the good/bad argument I thought we chased every last cause and put them under immense pressure forcing a lot of errors and effectively creating our own chances forcing so many corners and such from which we capitalized. It reminded me of when we went to Man City; number one we surprised them lining up 4-4-2 and played such a high line, chasing everything in a similar manner that they seemed at a loss on what to do with us. Tevez got us at the end of the day; the good news is he never moved to Sunderland or Blackburn afterall so same again from us and I think 4 points, which would keep us up surely, are a realistic and attainable target going into these games.
