The wait is finally over

The wait is finally over

The Premier League season is finally here (well for everyone but Spurs and Everton of course).

The grind of pre-season, with it's pointless friendlies is done.

Tomorrow sees the start of a brand new season, one which we all hope will once again end with Wolves still in the Premier League.

This season, like last season, we all hope that we can kick on and continue to not only establish ourselves in the Premier League, but climb into the mid-table positions.

The season will bring its ups and downs, the unexpected victories and the shambolic results against those that we should beat and it all starts tomorrow against Blackburn.

'We all want a good start and it just gets to you - you feel like you need an extra lung to get some extra breath in you.' Mick told Wolves Official Website, it doesn't matter how many years of experience you have behind you, there will always be a bit of nerves heading into a new season.

He added: 'I'll still get those butterflies when I'm standing there at Blackburn because it's a big day for us all.

'We want to make sure we get something from the game and make sure it all goes right.

'We will have done it all right because we prepare properly but we just hope it all goes well on the day.'

I really can't wait for the roller coaster to start. So many good points from last season. It took me 3 days to find out that we had beaten Man U. I still didn't believe the guy that told me! The lows of seeing us in the bottom three for most of the season, and performing so poorly against the teams around us. The high of a great run at the end of the season. The low of the first half against Blackburn The high of Steven Hunts late goal and Spurs beating the blouses The joy of being a wolves supporter Long may it continue. More highs this season though please UTW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Whilst many of us are disapointed with the lack of signings it all goes to one side tomorrow and each and every one of us must be buzzing ahead of the new season. My feet are firmly on the ground. Last season, whilst it left us with some wonderful memories proved painful in the main and I am not confident effectively one signing is not going to change too much. A lot of expectation on the Roger tomorrow. I expect Doyle and O'Hara to feature, Doyle and Fletcher both starting. We saw what they are capable of not so long ago remember and I think this one has goals in it. 2-2 I say and I would take a point on the opening day.

Is that a pic of the author's rear end? Anyway, it got me in...that's marketing for ya!I'm starting off the season optimistically,as usual, until they kick it out of me,like they usually do.I'm with NY as regards a score-draw, tomorrow.I'll stick with 2-2,too.Was hoping Blackburn would have seen more of an exodus of players, in the close-season. A few of their big boys missing would even it up as a weight-for-weight contest.I still reckon disaster looms for them, with those owners of theirs.Kean just got lucky and was in the right place at the right time,I have them down as one of those we can finish above.If JOH is fit for action, MM's formation will be telling. Back to the optimism of two up front is something I think he'll save for home games, pragmatism being the order of the day away from home.He may start with Fletch & Doyle...but not as a pair. Doyle could end up so deep, he's in mid-field anyway. We'll see.Come on you Wooooolllllvvvveeeesssss!

I've made a new season's resolution to be optimistic until I have cause to be pessimistic ... so it'll last for a few hours at least (if that's not being too pessimistic). With this in mind, I predict a 3-2 victory for Wolves at Ewood Park this afternoon.

Looking at the starting line-up, 4 defenders, 5 midfielders/attackers plus Ward; and only Elokobi and Foley with 4 constructive players on the bench, including Maierhofer. I am pleased. I was not expecting Milijas to start, there is no place; only instead of Henry, perhaps, but that is too bold, even for me.

I'm still optimistic ... and after today's match I might be thinking about daring to hope to consider the possibility that we might survive again. I am aware that we won the equivalent game last year and that Blackburn had a weakened side but the lads seemed to play well and we laid the Ewood Park bogey. I am particularly pleased that Ward had a good game and, according to the reports, he played far better than Elokobi at LB (though Hoilett seemed to be a handful throughout the game).
