  1. You get promoted, you look to stabilise, your Plan A works better than expected but you haven't got the players for a Plan B

    Plan A starts to fray when some key players are injured or lose form

    You nosedive

    Key players return and you manage to steady the boat

    Plan A starts to work again, but you still have no Plan B

    As soon as you reach a 'safe' level, it is imperative that you try to develop a Plan B again

    In conclusion - there will be more 'off' days as we try to develop alternative ways of playing, and introducing new or young players

    As a club and with a good group of young players, it's probably for the best that we develop ways of playing and this will inevitably take time. Sometimes it won't work before it starts to work

    I'm relaxed. We have a good manager, good young players and are upwardly mobile.

    As long as we push on next season this is totally acceptable to me

    Agreed we are doing great and next season well be in a good place in our younger players have 30 champ games under their belt.
    Right strategy this, but evolution not revolution

    It's the expectation that kills you. After such a great start and following last season and then thinking about Norwich and Soton you begin to get ahead of yourself and start planning trips to OT and the Emirates! We're doing well considering, KJ is the right man but we perhaps are still a couple of players short of a genuine challenge imo.

    You make good points but would Brentford agree with this?
    Look at them now. They are flying with a young side.
    Its up to Kenny to sort out our playing style at home as it is simply not good enough at present.
    We clearly need a couple of new players but the team that played today should be doing much, much better than that.

    Completely agree. Just a few weeks ago, people were rightly concerned about us being too easy to play against and the number of goals we were conceding.

    We've prioritised and rectified that in recent weeks so the next challenge is how to increase our attacking threat and quality whilst not compromising our defensive solidarity. The acquisitions of Afobe and Lingard suggest that Jackett realises this too and when Sako returns, he will have some very useful options at his disposal.

    The Manager has risen to every challenge and dip in form during his time here so hopefully he will do so again. We're building something good here with a focus on young, talented and commited players. It won't happen overnight but we are definitely on an upward trajectory.
  7. I'd rather be Wolves long term than Brentford short term, even if they sneak it. This is about building a philosophy

    Brentford probably have one shot (maybe two if Warburton is that good) and every man involved will give their all for the cause. Can they sustain that long term? I'd be surprised

    This is very sensible, and very well-worded. HOWEVER,we didn't win today, meaning that by the law of Molineux Mix, it is literally the end of the world, and everyone is useless. Take your realism and correct observations elsewhere...

    This $$$$ing board $$$$es me off, one non-win and it goes into meltdown. Orbital, you make a good point, and Tring, as always you're spot on. We're seventh FFS, by no means out of it yet.

    Very true. Similarly, I saw Watford scored seven today and some people have been moaning about why we never do that, but Watford look like a car running on dodgy upgrades. They may be capable of doing 150 on the motorway but they'll occasionally explode in a ball of flames.

    Long term, I think we're right to be adopting this measured approach. It might make for some boring games short term, but look at the likes of Swansea and Southampton now. I'd take some short term boredom for long term successes any day. We were exciting to watch under Mick, and ultimately where did that 'castle built upon the sand' approach get us? The team spirit goes, the manager gets sacked, and there's very little there in terms of underlying stability for the club to fall back on.

    Without wishing to get ahead of myself, it looks like we're building for long term success, which has to be the aim
