Unfortunately due to some technical issues I have only been able to publish this article now.
It had originally been sent in by Crete Wolf on Friday and probably held a lot more significance before Saturday's game against Birmingham than it does now, but perhaps with a look of hindsight it will still create some levels of interest!
With the transfer window now open for a month all the talk has been about the players who may be arriving.
But maybe of more significance to the Wolves faithful will be the return of one Michael Kightly.
I have been keeping tabs on how he has been performing and talking to Watford fans on their thoughts of him as a player.
All of them without exception told of how good a player he was and that he stood out a country mile amongst his peers on the pitch.
He must now be given a run in the team, of all the things our team lacks most of all I think is pace, Kites has that in abundance and can run at defences and could be an additional supply for Fletcher.
Maybe a free role in the 'hole' just behind the striker/strikers and play Hammill and Jarvis on the flanks, Hunt I think has lost form, an affliction which is seeming to affect a lot of our players this season, whereas before he was running around like a 'headless chicken' causing havoc, now he is just the 'headless chicken'.
The teams below us are now starting to win games, its starting to look like a five way fight with Sunderland and a manager who knows something about players and tactics out of sight. Norwich and Swansea have outperformed us on all our seasons in the top flight and look secure, one might falter but not both I think.
Draws are rapidly becoming not good enough, a win at Bolton would have been better than drawing at Arsenal.
We had one more point last year and were rock bottom which suggests that this year will require less points to stay up, but we simply have to stop the rot and start winning, 7 wins might be enough 8 to be sure but looking at the fixtures and the way we tend to perform against the teams around us it does not look like good reading.
The type of reaction needed is I feel one that only comes from fresh blood, be it players or management, if it is to be the latter, I fear it is now to late to change but maybe a new coach to improve confidence and tactics and assist Mick McCarthy might still be enough to give us that kick start we so desperately need.
The cup match with Birmingham is a good test for the players and could boost our confidence, a defeat could see our confidence slide to an even lower level, this is unthinkable and we must win I feel to save our season ,maybe a good cup run with a few decent results things will look a lot different!
One thing I would hope is to see Kites flying at the defences and taking it to them instead of standing off them and allowing vast amounts of spaces for opposing teams to expose our defence.
Two thing we want, 40 points and Kites back terrorising opponents, wondering where this player has come from?
In from the cold? maybe, just maybe.
