    After the horrendous 5 games culminating in the robbery v Bournemouth:mad: i want to say a very well done to the staff and players in getting us right back in the mix.

    A great point today showing real battling qualities , get Sako back for next week and bring on Reading.

    Come on me babbies :cool:

    Absolutely. That run could have finished our season but the players and management deserve great credit for having the ability and mental toughness to turn it around.

    We're still lacking a little bit in terms of quality (although we were very good against Watford and Blackburn) but the commitment and work-rate has been excellent.

    The players do deserve huge credit.

    Whatever their limitations,the effort levels and desire to play for Wolves is outstanding.

    It's such a huge shame that the club do not see fit to give them the support - via new players - that could see them have an excellent season.

    Spot on.
    We are in the mix, short of quality in making chances - we can all see it
    Let's hope for a good end to the transfer window and if not theres the loan window we can use.

    Interesting to hear Ricketts on the radio today. He basically said (the way I interpreted it anyway), we came up playing good passing football, we surprised teams and started well. Then they started closing us down high up the pitch and we couldn't cope. We went a bit more route 1 for a while to get ourselves going, but now we are trying to pass it more again although we are not doing it as well as we could be.

    As an aside,in a period where our owner seems totally disinterested in the first team,I applaud the likes of you for spending your hard earned cash following the team.

    In truth I wasn't expecting anything from Bolton today. I have seen us lose there so many times, that horrible little $$$$ Lennon has (sadly) injected some backbone into them.

    It's a good result, I wait with bated breath for performance to match again. That said, what was a downward spiral, admittedly against the better teams, has been halted and we are in the mix with our best player. (hopefully) returning.
     
  11. Central midfield is the issue for me. We're not mobile enough

    Agreed good run of eight games

    But be honest we were very poor today, lucky to get a point.

    I am delighted but we were lucky

    We'll be a different side with Sako back. Desperate for an attacking playmaker.

    Absolutely everyone can see it.

    Apart from the dull manager that is.

    Personally just think he doesn't like the players he's got at his disposal not that he can't see it.

    He rates his number 10 because he runs around a lot and defends well.

    He's also got 2 CM's who play like CB's.

    I'd like to get a marker pen and draw the word 'flair' across Kenny's forehead.

    It was. There certainly is a positive side, and arctic has found the vein carrying the old gold blood.

    We've passed and moved the ball better in jackets era, than under any wolves manager for over 2 decades. For the word flair, read "bakary"

    To be fair, I think we played with a lot of flair in the league 1 season, unfortunately some that they perhaps hoped could step up e.g. Jacobs either haven't or have been hit and miss in the Championship.

    Nice post OP. Was it really only 5 games ? From the pant wetting and quite appalling over-reaction that had built up on MolMix during the bad run it seemed much longer.

    But as you say, huge credit to the manager and team for showing massive strength and character to get through it.

    Feb fixtures look really kind - can see 3 home wins and perhaps W,D,L away so perhaps another 13 pts to put us firmly in the po positions by Bournemouth game on 3 March.
    I see KJ says on the FL Show he's after 1 of the 3 promotion slots. Can't see it myself but I admire/respect his determination.

    Yep, without that horrible run in November we could be right in the mix. That said, the current position is far from a bad one, we're very much under the radar. Even the FLS analysis tonight was about how that draw has affected Bolton's play-off hopes.

    No we haven't, he's had one season at league 1 level with the best team & most money in the league by far. We are not good or exciting to watch, we are boring, predictable & slow. We have had about 5 shots on goal in 3 games vs poor teams, that is not passing & moving the ball better than anything.

    An interesting perception. Agree with OP though, done very well to turn it around, however, February will make or break us. Have to win our home games.

    So its 18 from 9,still not too shabby in my opinion even though the Reading result was very disappointing .

    Lets see where we are after Saturday , 4 points would be nice , 6 wonderful.

    We are still in the mix . :cool:

    Four poor performances in a row though, Satuurdays result was no great surprise and we'll have to improve a lot if we want to emerge from the next two games no further from the play-off spots.
