Consistency is the word I was thinking of!,all these brilliant results against top teams mean nothing next year when we are performing in the fizzy pop league.Great result but it means nothing when put against all the results against the teams around us.

Respect. Superb performance from the stands to the pitch. You have blown a massive hole in what was the rags growing smugness. Good luck and hope you stay up, MCFC.

for god sake stop being so negative.. we have played well tonight and it's a huge win.. last year even when portsmouth were dead and buried their fans had more spirit and faith than that.. we are in no way relegated and i happen to believe we have more than enough to stay up.. if u can't be happy and supportive after a win like this when will you be? UP THE WOLVES!!!! bring on the baggies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I cannot believe you think this game means nothing! We were probably all expecting to be five points adrift from safety at kick off, now we're within four points of Blackpool, Albion, Wigan, Birmingham and West Ham.

Please read what I wrote!,a great result! and go and look what I wrote in the blog 'McCarthy felt robbed'.Just because we have beaten Man utd does'nt mean things are all rosy.All the people leaving messages are from the top teams who this result benefits,I would rather beat the baggies or Wigan or Blackpool or West Ham.As I said what would be better than all these isolated results is some consistency in games.UTW.

yeh but it's wrong to say that the win meant nothing. If we didn't win that game we would have looked a bit apart from the rest of the table but now we dont. it's a good morale booster aswell so i have to disagree with you there. i do however agree with you that we do need to beat the teams around us, starting with the albion. i just think it was a negative comment on a positive day for wolves!!

I agree with Smithy. When I saw the likely Wigan result in The Varsity yesterdayI was depressed because the projected loss against MU would have cut us badly adrift. The victory keeps us in contact and ready to make progress, once we have played next week's match. And why shouldn't we win at the Emirates anyway? But, Crete Wolf is right too! We have to win the six pointers against our relegation rivals. In that respect, it is better getting a win against Blackpool that one against Arsenal, though I will take three points from whatever direction. At the moment, I am nipping into the living room every so often to see the progress of the Birmingham-WHU match. I'm hoping for a draw,

Somehow I sent off the last message without completing the sentence. The last bit should read: though if one team has to win, I would prefer it be WHU, given Birmingham's games in hand.
