01/02: Preview: Wolverhampton Wanderers
by Matt Rowson
How did they do?
Anything other than promotion is always going to be a disappointment for such a Big club. Wolves finishing anywhere but seventh is always a bit of a shame for the rest of us. Last season's poor start disguised a steady improvement, however, and Wolves claimed a top half spot that for a long while seemed unlikely.
How will they do?
For the first time since GT was so sensibly ousted from the Wolves management job, the Wanderers have a manager who isn't a complete muppet. The squad should be strong enough to challenge for the play-offs, although it's interesting that, at the time of writing, Wolves had gone for players that they didn't have a cat in hell's chance of signing (Macken, Gregan, Ince). Does this betray ambition ? Or a need to be seen to be trying something ? Or an inaccurate appraisal of their own attractiveness ? Hmmm.
Do we like them?
Ha. Still, massive club.
If they were a tv or radio show, what would they be?
"Think of a Number".
