Discussion in 'Molineux Mix' started by wwbug, Dec 6, 2018.
I think the result last night was one of the most important in our recent past .
How about you ?
Not even close
I don't think the importance of results can be known until the future. The wins against Man United, Liverpool, Chelsea etc. last time round felt important at the time but meant absolutely nothing overall because we were in league 1 three years later.
Not exactly on topic but last night might be a very important win for this season.it must have given everyone at Molineux and Compton a huge lift which hopefully soon translates into several more victories.
One of the most memorable nights, certainly. One of the most important results? Not for me. The late turnaround at Brentford under Lambert for example was far more important in terms of the result
Bloody hell I agree with you!
Hahahaha...well I agree with a lot you said on the other thread...so we’re even.
Hate things like this, an important result is defined within the importance of its own moment imo. There’s been quite a few for us to be fair.
Sheffield Utd (N) 2003 W 3-0
QPR (H) 2009 W 1-0
West Ham (A) 2010 W 3-1
Blackburn (H) 2011 L 2-3
Leyton Orient (A) 2014 W 3-1
Brentford (A) 2017 W 2-1
Middlesbrough (A) 2018 W 2-1
Cardiff (A) 2018 W 1-0
All these games and loads more had a lot more riding on it than Chelsea. Wednesday night was brilliant, and much needed but most important in the last 20 years? Not a chance
Might have saved Nuno his job.
Not sure how you judge "important", but there have been more memorable wins for me. Bristol City away last season, Cardiff away, play-off win in Cardiff, beating Man U when Elokobi scored, Wembley triumphs. How far should I go back?
Beating Chelsea was great, especially coming from a goal down and will hopefully kick-start our season so "important" in that it may stop the rot but in the grand scheme of things, not sure.
Imho, it might be important in that it has, for the moment, eased some of the endless internal criticism of the coach, tactics and some players, but in a strategic sense it will be seen in future times as a momentary blip, that is if Nuno's dream becomes a reality, which I believe it will.
We might look back at the end of the season and say it was a turning point. For me it’s only an important result if we get a minimum of 4 points against Newcastle and Bournemouth. If we lose one of those games we’re back at square one, may as well have lost to Chelsea and won the other game.
It was important to get that monkey off our back, and get a win.
Not sure its quite up there though as one of the most important.
Not quite like Cardiff away last season.
Every win is important
Nuno was under pressure and there was a danger of tumbling down the table into the danger zone. We will have to wait and see if it proves to be a turning point. But the fact we beat one of the top four teams in the country without Neves and in parallel launched the career of the brilliant MGW was highly significant. A couple more wins this month would confirm that we have turned a corner and can aim at 7th or 8th this season.
every 3 points is sacred.
It moved us one place in the league
It was a great result & will help boost the confidence of our relatively youthful team, especially jota & mgw. I don't see it as being any more important than any other game as we only get 3 points for a win whoever we're playing.
Here's a question - would we prefer to win 5-4 away at man city or beat Fulham 2-0 at home? The man city result would be seen as the greater result but as far as points/goal difference is concerned the Fulham result would be more important
Can’t believe 50% have voted yes
We won after a bad start with the Coady deflection by taking our only two efforts on target. They had all the play and other chances to score.
It will only be important if we build on it.
If it's the making of M G-W as regular option.
If the system is utilised and proves progressively successful.
Depends on what happens next, otherwise it will just be another tough game that we happened to win.
We’ve turned a massive corner with that victory.
We need to build on it ‘though.
It’s importance can only be judged if it proves to be the catalyst for a great Christmas.
Can not believe anyone has voted.....
I can’t believe there was a Nuno out thread! There are some very nervous and over emotional people on here! One week talk of top 6 then a fortnight later it’s Nuno out ffs
It wasn't that important in the grand scheme of things. Just another 3 points. Of which there will be many more.
Nowhere near, i hope we don't act this pathetically next time we lose 2 on the trot.
I get it, football is a confidence game, but it's likely we will go on 3 or 4 more winning/ winless streaks this season. It's the same for 90% of the division.
Almost 50% voted yes.
I am one.
The reasons for me are this season is one of our most important seasons.Because of our desire to get in to Europe in two years.
A relegation scrap stops that imo.
January will be one of our most important windows.
A loss last to Chelsea could have seen us looking down not up , navel gazing.To potential signings a no no.
A win puts us in with a chance of mid to high twenty points come January.
Squad strengthening and perhaps a top 10 place with all that means next season.
A real mood changer of a match.
Just my opinion.
Strange enough, but I suppose if one wakes up with wet bedding .........
Nuno had a dream . And Fosun.
And a relegation scrap was not that dream
And that dream has to be sold to any potential signings in a very important January .
Getting promoted from league 1
Staying in the championship despite our squad being sold off
Getting promoted after gambling on big name signings
these were far far more crucial times to where we are going.
Whether we finish 14th or 8th is going to make very little difference to the quality of signings we will make in the future, this is a season of consolidation and building. I don't get this, i can't see where the next win is coming from mentality.
More so than our first win back?
I agree. But as has been said if it proves to be a one off and we struggle v Newcastle, Fulham and Bournemouth it will simply represent three points.
Only if you were doing the interview ?
But beat Tottenham and Liverpool. Every game is a one off.
Well I'm just gonna enjoy it. Season defining moment or not. It'll never reach the status of Swinbourne's comeback winner v Honved. But most of the winning games mentioned here are against lowly teams. Chelsea are nailed on Top Five Prem. Nuno tried a system this season which had worked remarkably well. However, the less elegant lower teams of the division destroyed our artistry. Nuno went back to the drawing board. A new plan is emerging. Lets Hope. Would Nuno 'have' (not 'of' you moronz) lost his job. Yes, of course. We were the Premier's worst performing team. Another string of poor results throught January. Alarm bells would ring. Hail Big Sam, the local lad. He always considered Wolves the poisoned chalice. I pray every night he never cometh.
I don't think there are many, if any hugely important games in early December. As great as the occasion was, it's still just 3 points. We won't look at it so fondly if we get done over by Newcastle and Bournemouth.
@wwbug - that doesn't even rhyme mate...
Agreed but this win makes those more likely to be won by us imo
No, as great a result as it was, it still doesn't compare against a lot of the games others have mentioned.
We have done well against the better teams all season so it isn't that much of a shock. Wins against the likes of Newcastle, Bournemouth & Fulham are far more important IMO
