It was only last week that one of my comments was taken as too negative.
The comment came following the Huddersfield match. WOW had described the loss as a 'rare away defeat', which personally I thought seemed a tad odd considering we had lost 50% of all our games away from home up to that point.
I explained that I understood the need to put a positive spin on things, but the problem with that comes when the results dry up, for example perhaps two draws at Molinuex in games which we should have gone on to win?
Once you raise the expectation levels, its then harder to accept that sometimes results are simply not going to go our way.
Ståle Solbakken has spent this season playing down Wolves chances this season and for good reason, we are a club in transition, we have to recover from relegation from the Premier League by making sure our house is in order, both financially and squad wise.
The gaffer appears to be doing a good job of that while Jez Moxey, for all his faults, continues to run a tight ship. But with all these changes comes instability and during that period its going to take time for the team to gel. Throw in a few injuries and its no surprise that we're not firing on all cylinders.
But with perhaps raised expectation levels around Molinuex, the crowd booed the team off following the draw with Charlton and whilst Solbakken understands the frustrations he thought the crowd may have possibly unnerved his players.
"I understand fans` frustrations - no-one is more frustrated than us, We played poorly. We don`t want to play like that - we want to control the game better and we weren`t able to.' he told the Express & Star.
He added: "The crowd got a bit anxious and I don`t know if that had an effect on the game but it was a very untidy second half.'
The problem is we as football fans tend to swing from one extreme to other, a week ago following five wins from six, we were promotion favourites and rarely losing away from home.
This week following one defeat and two draws, we're far from promotion candidates, although won't get relegated if you listen to some!
The truth is, as is usually the case, somewhere in the middle. So lets not put a negative spin on things, just like we shouldn't put a positive spin on things as that just creates unwanted tension.
We're re-building for the future and that takes time.
