Rustmonkey i agree but with the amount of injuries we have any point is good. But as SS has said with the two week break hopefully we can get a couple of loan signings in to me with a squad in transition to be third is not bad at all. Then afte the break keep going till Jan then get afew permenat signings with a bit of quality like Sako and Doumbia then we will take the leaue by storm.

I agree Rustmonkey, in that it's effective... in this league. I'm still of the opinion that a new manager needs 3 years to prove himself; the first year of which would be the transistion stage.Let alone that SS lost his 3 best players from a not-overly-talented squad, that he had little time to identify and attract players that were better than those we already had. On top of that, the new players were (in the main) overseas and had the hassle associated with moving to a new country- none of which we see. Our performances have been variable, our injury list seemingly endless. Blackburn were less than ordinary by all accounts,and we (Stearman's attempt to gift them a free-kick from the penalty spot aside) won at a canter... which is the speed we play at.And yet, even given all those factors, we find ourselves third. Which brings to mind Stale's and Moxey's warnings about advancing too quickly. We've a squad still getting to grips with a new manager and his tactics and players still getting to know each other. We're not playing 'well' and yet are above two of the teams that beat us. I said when we were relegated it could take years to get back and what SS and JM were alluding to (I think) was that promotion could come 'too quick' for the team to stand any chance of staying up.It's the difference between being a yo-yo club, or consolidating and building a better squad and team. I get the impression that the plan for this season was the latter and that (due to the quality of the Championship) we could end up being promoted by accident. As a fan I want my team to win every week- which they are doing, of late. I also wish that this league demanded more in terms of quality of performance from a team before they find themselves in position for the play-offs or promotion... accidently or otherwise.

Winston although you are right in a sense that you can get promoted too quickly. I think that we had enough last season to stay up. If we were to get promoted it would mean more time for SS to pick out more gems in the transfer market and he could very well be smiling at survival in the PL after 2 seasons in charge.

I agree with the comments of both WS84 and PD. When we get promoted, I want us to do so in style and with a reasonable expectation of staying up. I've suffered enormously over the course of the past three years, even if I have had the chance to watch the best clubs and players in the country (neither of which/whom, unfortunately, were located in Wolverhampton). I am also aware of the financial rewards of being in the PL (and being able to see extended highlights of all our matches on Sky, if not on Freeview sites) and the pulling power of the PL as an attraction for quality players. Of course, such players do not immediately flock to newly promoted teams because of the convention that they will go straight back down again. This is what made our relegation last season so hard to take. It was our third year in the top flight and we should have strengthened our squad far more thoroughly than the tinkering with it which we did do. We had the money- even more if we had used money earmarked for the unnecessary building programme - but we failed to capitalize on the situation. All of us, management, coaching staff and fans alike (even the players) realised the weaknesses in the squad but did little to remedy the situation. The only positive thing I can take from the whole sorry saga is the end of the MM regime and its replacement by SS. Indeed, he has made more progress than I would have expected and I think that by the January window we will still be in a strong position, injuries notwithstanding. If so, I hope Mr. Morgan will dust off his purse and give him the funds to propel us into the PL this year. With one or two judicial signings he might just create a squad that will smash aside everything in its path, one which might even have a chance in the PL.
