Any game against Arsenal is likely to end up in defeat.
Under Mick McCarthy, Arsenal would have been one of those bonus games that you just look to get beyond. If you get anything out of the game then great, even a valiant defeat often was enough to boost morale and take confidence into the next game.
Last night, off the back of 6 straight defeats, no-one was turning up at Molineux expecting miracles. They would have just be hoping and praying for a result which wasn't too embarrassing.
After 11 minutes, that looked unlikely.
With Wolves reduced to 10-men with Sebastien Bassong sent off and two goals from Robin van Persie and Theo Walcott, even Terry Connor had thoughts that it could have ended in double figures.
"I took comfort that from going 2-0 down we could have ended up with a real beating and a record defeat in the Premier League," TC told the Express & Star.
For the stattos out there, a record Premier League defeat would be something worse than Ipswich`s 9-0 defeat to Manchester United in March 1995.
He continued: 'The lads were determined for that not to happen and they dug in.
"We got to half time without conceding any more and were then able to talk through what we wanted to do in the second half.
"They carried that out to the letter and were magnificent. So the spirit is there."
As it turns out Wolves did break two records last night.
An eighth straight defeat at Molineux, sets a new club record, as does a 30th game without a clean sheet.
Vital Wolves Comment: We must avoid defeat to Sunderland on Saturday to avoid equalling another unwanted record.
In February 1982 back in the old days of division one, on route to being relegated down to the second tier of English football, Wolves lost eight-in-a-row.
Defeat to Sunderland would see that record equalled.
