    I'm not one for going overboard in either direction - I don't think everything is terrible when we lose, or that all is wonderful after a win. I don't think that bad things only happen to us as a club, or that they do just because we are who we are.
    However, listening to the match yesterday, the emotions through the 90 minutes, the excitement of the goals, tension, and the absolute glee of the final whistle, it made me realise how badly such occasions have been missing from our lives as Wolves fans, and for how long.
    Things are not going to be wonderful all the time. We have lows to come. Yesterday's result won't necessarily be translated into our next league performance, but bloody hell, part of being a Wolves supporter needs to be days like yesterday too.

    Back in the '60s and '70s the FA Cup games were huge for the fans. Cue massive away followings, often just pay on the day. Although I wasn't there yesterday the footage I've seen took me right back. A fantastic day.

    Didn't go for personal reasons but agree with Mutchy. It reminded me of Newcastle away and shows what we all crave from Football. Villa game will be one to remember too, I bet!

    A million per cent agree Mutchy. Hope we can keep the feel good factor going next weekend. Defeat at home to Villa would put a real downer on things.

    The FGF has been missing for so long it's been a shock to the system!

    Sense we are moving up the curve on the cycle.....the great dark cloud will lift and fun and frivolity will once again return to the Mix. :)

    I read this with Jerusalem playing in the background, standing under my Wolves flag in the back garden..... brought a little tear to my eye.

    I agree the Villa game will be key. I have tried to convince my eldest to buy a ticket but just got the "poor student" routine. Happy enough for me to buy his tickets when at home mind......I am making a stand!

    Totally agree, brilliant day for lot's of reasons.
    Always a difficult encounter for me as my Dad supported Stoke City until his passing at 86.My brother still does, and so do many of my friends.
    I didn't rub it in in my local last night, or at least I think I didn't after copious amount of beer followed by red wine, G&T's and cognac !
    Seem to recall drinking in a Titanic pub in Stoke after the game, then devouring an Indian in a restaurant nearby.

    Happy days as you say Mutchy, bring on the Villa ! : )

    I am convinced that yesterday will go down in the Wolves history books as the day we (at last) turned a corner. For me the reason yesterday may/will be seen as a turning point is I've waited years for a Wolves manager to show aggression when winning a match; how often in the past have we been winning 1-0 for the team to go on the defensive and just try to hang on? That seems to have been a mantra at Molineux for at least 10 years. The fact that PL was prepared to bring on ND for Iorfa was astounding and for me a quite brilliant move which proved decisive as we cut them apart several times in the last 10 minutes. Added to this PL's use of Bright, Ronan and Gibbs White in really big games is a sure sign of the positive way ahead and that quality (at whatever age) will be recognised and rewarded. I am still reeling from yesterday and I am hoping and praying that this is the start of Wolves long climb back to the top and that exciting times lay ahead for us.

    To put my post into context. I can't demonstrate my passion for Wolves in the usual ways - physically I can't cheer, raise my arms when we score, jump around at the final whistle, but ****ing hell, I haven't felt a sense of celebration like that for far too long.
    One game, one result, but its like oxygen to a football fan...

    That was the first game for ages where afterwards I wanted to puff out my chest with pride, get to my local and tell everyone just how great we were! This I did celebrating with loads of beer and extolling Paul Lambert for both bringing on a 16 year old and the the Dicko substitution when 1 - 0 up, a great day and a great night.

    More of the same please.

    This is how I feel when I read posts on here, people emotionally overheat at the slightest thing, be it when Fosun take over and mass hysteria creeps in, or when things don't go to plan after 5 games of Lambert being in charge and people are declaring 'the project has failed', Fosun have 'gone to ground' or some other absolute nonsense.

    The other one is the attributing of signings to certain members of staff with no prior knowledge of who does what behind the scenes. Usually, whoever's flavour of the month (Zenga or Mendes - massively assuming Mendes has anything to do with Wolves personally) get the good buys and the crap ones are automatically assumed to be 'Thelwell' signings. You have to laugh. Who will be credited with the vision that's seen the young lads coming through now? Steve Morgan...? ;)

    Love the positivity, just wish things weren't always so schizophrenic on here. :)

    I am excited.

    Not only because of the Stoke game but because of the sudden injection of pace and homegrown youth. The way we are playing, especially away from home is exhilarating.

    One swallow doesn't make a summer and all that. We still have to sort out home form. We are still stuffed up with too many unproven foreign signings and I distrust and view with suspicion the Mendes/Thelwell axis.

    However, it may just be that we have stumbled on the perfect head coach for us. Hungry, something to prove, casting off a reputation for turgid football at previous clubs etc. Happily this translates into using pace, width and youth, all of which have been synonymous with Wolves when we have been successful.

    Saturday was another precious scrap of glory for us all. There haven't been many days of glory in the FA cup in my time following Wolves. I've seen us get to two semi finals in my forty odd years following the babbies. For most of those years the FA cup was over for us after one game so my memories of Ipswich away, Leicester at home, Sheffield Wednesday and the penalty shootout, Goodman scoring at Leeds before super Hans saved Hasslebaink's penalty and the win against Newcastle are so precious. Glory is what this game is all about and we need more of it. I would love us to get to take thousands to Anfield and give a good account of ourselves. Come on me babies, I'm still dreaming of us winning the cup in my lifetime!
