Wolves 2 Fulham 0

Wolves 2 Fulham 0

What a perfect game.

Two goals, clean sheet and another assured performance.

Whether it is Survival Sunday, the fitness of Jamie O'Hara or installing Roger Johnson as captain, something has really given us that kick up the ass we needed to push upwards and onwards.

While I don't want to get ahead of myself, we really could have a season to remember. We now seem to be an accomplished Premier League side.

Our two wide men caused Fulham problems throughout the game. Stephen Hunt had the better of John Arne-Riise, and Matty Jarvis was quietly effective. He now has two assists and a goal to his name, and is in fine form. Surely another England call up is due?

Looking through our team, we have a great British and Irish spine, as good (if not better) as any team in the bottom half. If we can keep this as our spine: Hennesey-Johnson/Berra-O'Hara/Henry-Doyle/Fletcher and get as many games out of them as possible then we can't go far wrong.

Karl Henry looks a different player. He had Danny Murphy in his pocket. It was a great moment when he turned four or five times and Murphy, who was clearly affected by the crowd, couldn't get the ball off of him. Henry and O'Hara, look like they have enough about them to control the game in a 4-4-2, which makes life a lot easier.

I was glad to see Kevin Doyle find the back of the net too. After an early miss, it was good for him to a get a goal that he badly needed. Him and Fletcher with the right service will get goals, as well as them being two terrific footballers.

And then there is Stephen Ward. Another top class performance by the Irishman will continue to add to his growing reputation with the fans. His two blocks in quick succession were nothing short of heroic.

Hennesey - 8

Stearman - 7

ohnson - 7.5

erra - 7.5

ard - 8

Hunt - 8

'Hara - 7.5

enrty - 9

arvis - 8

Doyle - 7.5

letcher - 8

Villa up next in the league. A tough away match, but it was last time we played them!

I really hope that the team can kick on from this good start, a draw at Villa would be a great reuslt. I think that Wolves are going to be a difficult team to beat this season. We just need to ensure that we don't conceed late goals, that cost us last season!

I'd hapily take a draw away at Villa, just keep the unbeaten run going, would keep the confidence high, and hopefully help us roll over the teams in the following matches at home.

Ward is quickly becoming a fan favourite, so much for needing a new Left back, and Berra looks composed under Johnson's rule!
