2011/12 Season DVD - ideas for sleeve notes, tag lines etc

Assuming they bother to make one, I’ve had some thoughts for the Official 2011/12 Season DVD.

Sleeve notes:
After Wolves clinched Premiership survival thanks to Tottenham on the last day in May 2011, this was a season Wolves fans could look forward to with bags of unjustified optimism. “Never again”, Chairman and lifelong Liverpool fan Steve Morgan had proclaimed, and how right he was.

The summer break saw Wolves strengthen the side, by dropping their best goalie from the previous campaign, then signing Roger Johnson from a relegated club and immediately making him Captain. This set the tone for a season which was full of shocks and surprises.

August saw McCarthy’s men reach the dizzy heights of the top of the Premier League, by virtue of playing first that day. It also gave fans the chance to see the new North Bank rising from the site of the perfectly good old one, subsequently to tower over the rest of the ground like a monstrous monument to misplaced priorities.

As the season went on, Wolves scored a point against Arsenal.

This DVD captures the lows and other lows of a campaign to forget to remember. Laugh and laugh again at McCarthy’s hilarious interviews, while the team went sideways but mainly backwards. Gasp at bewildering team selections and substitutions. Relive every embarrassing moment of the search for a new Manager. And, in Titanic’s Centenary Year, remind yourself of how not to save a sinking ship.

It was a season that saw many things tumble: club records, Early Bird renewals, and most weeks, Richard Stearman. This is your official reminder that you didn’t just imagine it, IT ALL REALLY DID HAPPEN.


“I thought we played well” – Mick McCarthy
“I thought I was a good Manager” – Terry Connor
“I’m a left back!” – George Elokobi
“Blah blah blah blah” – Jez Moxey
“ ” – Steve Morgan
“You lookin’ at me?!” – Roger Johnson


Special features:
97 minutes of scintillating football action, including the Matt Murray testimonial game in its entirety
Never before seen CCTV footage of Danielle Lloyd smacking that Wolves fan
“What Roger Did”: a hilarious blow by blow account of What Roger Did
30 seconds of highlights from Wolves’ Cup campaigns


*****
“Absolutely brilliant, one to keep and keep again”
Official Albion fan club


Classification: 18
Contains scenes of horrible football, constant threat of relegation, and shocking ineptitude throughout. And Roger Johnson. Should not be viewed by anyone, except Terry Connor, who thinks it’s all fine.


Suggested tag lines:
“Never Say Never Again”
“You Just Couldn't Make It Up”
“Out Of Darkness Cometh Houses”
“It’s Got Wolves DNA All Over It”

I hate all the pointless negativity, but even M&M would have to laugh at this.
Nice work.

Superb. Funniest post for a while.

As for other taglines:

"See Terry Connor strengthen his claim for the Manager's job with brave defeats against Premier League giants Norwich, Bolton and Blackburn".
"This DVD is rated 18 - strictly not for novices".

And as for an alternative title, how's about simply...

"Champions!...(hip)"

Watch as Wolves pay their own special season long tribute to the centennial celebrations of the Titanic.

' Watch and be amazed as Wolverhampton Wanderers, a side honed by Mick McCarthy over 5 glorious seasons, embark on their 3rd year in the Premiership attempting to establish themselves among England's elite. Be thrilled as Premiership records fall as the team in gold and black climb the heights to top place in August and fall to the lowest depths just over 5 months later. You'll be staggered by the arrogance and complacency shown by the Chairman, CEO and the Board as they look on from their comfortable Directors' seats in the Billy Wright Stand at the antics on the pitch of their players, most of whom played for the team 3 years ago, and whilst they regularly 'put a shift in' they rarely end up on the winning side. You'll be agog as you witness the rising monolith that is the new North Bank Stand, a proud monument to the achievements of the illustrious Chairman Steve Morgan. Despair as you watch this hapless bunch of professionals led by a coach more out of his depth than his predecessor, stagger from disaster to disaster on the pitch finally relinquishing their hallowed position in the Premier League to return to the backwaters of the 2nd tier of English football. Yes, this reallly happened and in an English City, not a million miles from you. You just couldn't make it up. Get this now as this amazing tale is likely to never be repeated'.

Well thought out 55 Luxury Homes and very well put. The problem with it though is that it's meant to be funny ( which it is ) but is in actual fact very realistic. Little ironic that you did this on Friday the 13th, or was it just coincidence? Might be an apt title come to think of it.

My suggested tag line:
'You don't achieve stability by chopping and changing'.

Fair point, but you’ve got an excellent chance of losing it if you don’t do it early enough. We didn't and we have.

If Steve Morgan can read your post and at least see the funny side of it we have some hope. Most of all I love your user name.
