Will Wolves be better off than last year?

Will Wolves be better off than last year?

In the run up to the New Year, Wolves fans have started to wonder whether we will start 2012 in a better position than we started 2011.

Last season we went into January on 18 points and went into Survival Sunday with our Premier League status still in the balance.

As the games flowed up and down the land, Wolves were down and then up as the 90 minutes ticked down.

We all thought in pre-season that we would avoid that scenario this season, but looking forward, will we?

Crete Wolf wrote earlier this week:

'Wigan, Sunderland and Norwich are home games that we simply have to win to retain any sort of points total, 18 points was I think the total at the turn of the year last year, looking at our away fixtures Everton and Bolton look to be our only 'glimmer' of a chance at an away point though they are not exactly happy hunting grounds for us!

'By the turn of the year if we don't reach that 18 point mark I think it will leave us to much to do, we all remember last seasons last day finish, well it could all be over way before that if we continue as we are!'

Which led to our current front page poll which asks: Last years turn of the year points total was 18 points, can we beat it this time around?

Currently 53% believe we can go into 2012 with between 18 and 20 points.

35% believe we will be worse off than last season and have less than 18 points and 12% believe we will have more than 20 points.

But how are we coming to our conclusions?

Well over on the Vital Wolves Forum we are predicting all of our next nine games.

Akela basicllly what your saying if we dont get 18-20 points we are relegated i agree. But the best thing going for is is if we can beat Wigan Chelsea beat BB Stoke get a draw with bolton its going to take to games for any of them to over take us. Considering the next three games Everton MU and Chelsea this could be vital. A s for MMs coments on finishing in top 10 if you know what hes on please get me the same drink pills powder who cares being a Wolves fan i think everybody would agree.
