'If It's Football, It's Vital'

A New Hope

Until recently, Wolves season has for the most part gone unnoticed outside the black country.

Whilst Birmingham and West Brom have been gaining plaudits from the media for the way their multi million pound squads have 'battled' in The Championship throughout the season, Mick McCarthy's team have emerged as 'dark horses' in the promotion race.

To everyone outside of Molineux maybe.

Matt Murray has never had any doubt about what the teams aspirations have been all along.

'If people are going to talk about us again and the expectation is coming back then rightly so,'

'The play-offs have always been our aim and the way we're going now we have to aim for automatic as well. Then if we fall just short of that we still end up in the play-offs and have to repeat this form.' Murray has said this week.

It is difficult to talk about the mastermind of this remarkable turn around in fortunes without using superlatives.

Miraculous, incredible, astounding. All word used to describe the McCarthy effect that has swept Wolves into The Championship top four, and on the verge of a seventh win in a row, and their fans truly believing that The Premiership is a realistic target.

But what does the man himself put it down to ?

'It's not because we have a nice stadium and a great training ground and a wonderful history. It is the players who have created a feeling of anticipation and hope rather than the apathy that was here at the start of the season.



And I don't mind that - if the players get people sitting up and taking notice then great.'

People are starting to take notice. And well they should, because this is a side with the bit between its teeth. Passion, hunger, desire and commitment so long missing from the Molineux men is back, and back in abundance.

The secret's out, The Wolves are at the door. Leave it undefended at your peril.
