    How will you feel or be effected if we go up this season.

    As wolves is part of my life will be like a dream come true if we can go up and establish ourselvs in the prem league, where i feel a club of this size deserves to be.

    Its far to early to say we are going to do it, but with a great 1st half to the season, and a great manager and board aswell as young quality players, i can only see us getting bigger and better.

    I'll be mildly pleased I think. Like when I found a curly wurly in my sports bag whilst looking for my socks, and I was coincidentally quite peckish.

    Even more coincidentally, you play like you are wearing curly wurly's on your feet. Did the socks taste good?

    Oh the bliss of having the usual footballing timetable of Saturday 3 o' clock even more beggared up. And the cheap cost of away tickets to see giants like Fulham and Wigan.....

    Personally it does not mean diddly to me as long as I can watch a game of football. There are a lot of clubs in the championship who are proper football clubs with a long history and supporters that follow their local team, the team that their Dad took them top watch as a boy. I detest the glory hunters and don't give a fig if MU or Chelsea win the League it simply is of no interest to me. The Premier League is no longer a competition, the majority of teams are just there to make up the fixtures, they are just cannon fodder who have no hope with competing because the finances are skewed in favour of the big four clubs. I detest the hype of the PL, most of what I see on TV is poor entertainment and I have stopped watching most of it. I no longer care if an English club win the Championd League, they will probably be managed by a foriegner and have a majority of foreign players and I feel no more affilliation to them than I do to Real Madrid or AC Milan. I will probably be in a minority of one on this but such is life.

    For me, being one of those who supported the team as a child it would be the beginning of the realisation of a dream. We lived half a mile from the ground, couldnt afford to go to the matches so i used to go outside and listen out for the loudest roar which told me we had scored. From then being able to follow them on the telly and then eventually starting going to matches in 1979, experiencing the heights of winning the League Cup and finishing 6th in Division 1 in 1980, and then witnessing the horrendous decline to the old 4th Division, it was after the Chorley game that i dreamt of Wolves regaining their place among the elite and being able to compete with the top six in the top tier and win a cup competition along the way. After 19 years, part of that dream was realised, albeit fleetingly, but now i believe if we get there, with such a good crop of young players and the addition of 3 or 4 quality signings, we can stay there and consolidate our position, and yes, maybe win the FA Cup for Sir Jack to realise his dream!

    For me it will be the first part of an absolutely essential path that we must take if we are to re-establish ourselves once more amongst the leading English Clubs.

    Step 2 is to this time acquit ourselves much more successfully in our first year back in the Premiership and consolidate our position so that we achieve by

    Step 3 a place in the Premiership on par with say Middlesborough within hopefully 3 seasons...

    The alternative to grasping promotion this season is IMO the liklihood of another decade in the Championship with each year the gap between the Prem` growing noticably...

    The joy of being promoted and then the realisation we will now be part of the league of greed.

    And making it even more likely that I will never see Wolves at Molineux again..(A sad but personal decision)

    It`s Del wishing for a bit of diving:p

    As when threads have been asking why low gates ( to stop tall people getting in) I have given my reason as refusing to pay the extortionate ticket prices for 90 minutes of football, if you`re lucky you might rarely see a good game!

    No doubt in the league of greed they will go up even higher until the Stafford Rangers effect starts to permeate right through the league system until the will be the only team with a full house will be the Manc Utd Brand, unless they drop their prices.

    If United, Wolves, Leicester and Bradford win the league, i'll win ten grand so it means quite a lot!!

    There is also the fact that we will be playing those manc $$$$$$$s as well so every chance i can go to work and take the $$$$ for a month like a did last time.

    It will give me a big smile on my face and trepidation and total nervous melt down for the following season. It will also mean that I don't have to explain to the "Yanks" who Wolves are, and what league they are, because over here if your not in the Premier League no one knows you and no one cares.

    It'll probably induce a rare emotional moment between me and my old man. I like order and to have the team back where they were when my dad was my age, albeit probably without the uefa and league cup runs, would be very pleasant. If the thread is an attempt to fish out who would go to more games if we get promoted, then i have to be in the group that won't. Success has zero influence over my attendance, i'd go to as many games if we were in the blue square, probably more.

    With you on that one Adrian. Somehow someway I'd find a way to attend.

    And definitely not to have the opportunity to see Cristiano Ronaldo, Frank Lampard, Francesc Fabregas etc. I'm a Wolves supporter.

    I'm with Wulfhere on this one. promotion will mean a successful season has been completed, followed by a season of higher profile failure. Finishing 15th in the PL will be greeted with relief and a sense of achievement - if it happens. Could Wolves ever become a top ten club? Yes - but it is extremely unlikely. The successes of my youth; league cups, UEFA final and top six finishes are now out of reach. I hope we do get promoted, but relegation with the accompanying parachute millions, returns us to what I consider to be the definitive English football league.
    Meanwhile I continue to watch my son (man of the match last week) play for his local junior league team. It is free, and almost just as enjoyable.

    I also have to add for those of us that live too far away for anything other than the occasional match at the Mol and who have the benefit of Sky TV - it means we get to see virtually all the matches - albeit a few hours later in some cases...

    It will mean less games, less goals, less wins and more money. But there is the slim chance that we might manage to stay up.

    It will mean a lot to me( particularly if we hold onto top spot), but not as much as Cardiff in 03 did..
     
  28. It will mean an inexplicable sense of satisfaction. On a practical level I will buy a season ticket and travel from Dublin with my brother for every game. Exile in America, recent retirement and aged parents, have restricted my attendance for many years. As a younger man I missed 3 games home and away between 1966 and 1972. Great times, fond memories. Iwant to "get back in touch" with my team. The prem will bring it full circle for me.

    I'll be able to say that I was always a Wolves supporter and not a bandwagon jumper like most of my mates in Australia who watch premier league. (They all reckon they're lifelong Hull supporters).

    Either way it will be nice to watch Wolves games on Foxtel with my mates and show them what they been missing out on.

    I enjoy my football in general and Wolves in particular. To a great extent I don't mind what league we are in as long as there is entertainment and/or excitement.
    This season is great for all sorts of reasons. Plenty of wins, plenty of goals but still a hell of a lot to play for. If we do go up then I imagine the excitement will be of a different nature.
    I'll be dead chuffed for a couple of months if we go up but it depends what we do if and when we get there.
    Simply put; if, come next Christmas I can feel the same way most Hull supporters feel right now, it will mean an awful, awful lot.

    It will mean that I will be seeing Wolves playing direct on tv every week. Hope that than Wolves will be able to find their feet in the premiership so that we establish ourselves in that division.

    Naturally it does not take long for me to raise my expectations again for a place in Europe. I rarely satisfy myself unless we are at the top.

    I'm pretty much completely opposite to this. It will mean I get the chance to see my team putting itself up against some of the world's great players(and Villa). Back in the day I saw, George Best, Rodney Marsh, Bobby Moore, Frank McLintock, Stan Bowles and many many more true greats, 5 years ago I saw Rooney, Ronaldo, Lampard, etc etc obviously I hated them all during games but afterward could appreciate their talent and I want that feeling back.

    The main difference for me is that I'd go to a few away games, namely Liverpool, Man utd and Fulham in the home ends. I'd probably not give me ST away for a few home matches as well when hungover.

    I don't think I'll spend the summer dancing in the streets or anything like that if we do go up though, it is only a game afterall!

    A mixed bag of feelings for me, this one.

    Will be delighted if we take Albion's place in the top flight, and with it gain some great bragging rights at work after we've been the 'lesser team', so to speak, for so long...

    Will be delighted to see the club achieve something great (auto), if they make it, which is the least-stressful way to win promotion and for once will show a season of proper consistency & superiority which we've lacked since time began. I've always wondered how I would feel if we were to "do a Fulham"...

    Delighted at the extra exposure it will bring our club in the media, both nationally and internationally. Wolvo is one of those towns/cities where the footie club is largely at the heart of the place; that gives the local community a great sense of pride, and ultimately this helps to reinstate the place on the map.

    Delighted at the extra footie highlights we'll be able to see, with regards to the Football First highlights on sky (we'll still get to see dick-all on MOTD).

    Delighted to see our young guns plying their trade in the Prem and testing their full potential. Be interesting to see who succeeds and fails.

    Delighted for my little nipper, as I hope it will be the start of something great and he can grow to support the club with great pride and not have to put up with the $$$$ we faced a couple of decades or so ago.

    Conversely...

    Not looking forward to a few 'slappings' which we'll no doubt be on the receiving end of.

    Not looking forward to seeing all the cheats visiting our place - let's face it, it's more commonplace in the Prem.

    Not looking forward to welcoming the loadsamoney nouveau-riche players and wags, who are a bit of a joke and an insult to those with commendable principles who graft harder but earn little in comparison.

    In short I'll be chuffed as it'd be great to see our team go up in style - I'd rather we achieved than didn't(!), but admittedly the Prem just doesn't excite me as much as it used to. I'd love to be more enthralled about it but I can't be :(

    Maybe I'm a little half-empty today, but the greed league is detaching itself from the real people of this country and I believe Wolves to be a real-person's club.
