With only ten days to go before the start of the 07/08 Championship season, Wolves players are focusing on exceeding last years over achievement and reaching The Premiership for only the second time.
Goalkeeper Matt Murray is the only player remaining from the last Wolves side to achieve promotion, and believes that the current squad has just what it takes to emulate the 02/03 side.
Speaking to The Birmingham Mail earlier this week he said
'There's a great team spirit and maybe, in a way, it's even better than the one we had last time we went up.'
'Speaking to the lads before we came back they were all desperate to get back in and go again to try and take that extra step.
'Hopefully all the enthusiasm and will to do well will get us the results we need and we'll be sitting here in a few months time top of the league and flying!'
Also looking to get out of the blocks firing on all cylinders is Seyi George Olofinjana.
Integral to Mick McCarthy's side last year, the Nigerian powerhouse has learned the lessons of last season where McCarthy's side only really kicked into top gear after the Christmas break, as he told Paul Berry.
'If we are going to do anything this season we are going to have to really step it up every game.
'We have to be up for it right from the start.
The first few games are very important because if we do well in those we will lift our spirits and believe in ourselves again.
'It will also give something to the crowd, show them that we are ready to go again, because we are going to need everybody.'
Olofinjana's goals and Matt Murray`s saves played a crucial part in Wanderers success story last year.
And both will be required to set the same standards again in the coming months, if either is to realise their shared dream of competing week in, week out with the county's elite.
All at Olofin Towers have no doubt that both possess the capability, all that`s left is for both to help create the opportunity.
