    October and November not great but we played well at times and didn’t get what we deserved. Now not necessarily at out best but 3 in 3 talked us to 7th. We’ll get better and better.

    Just take it in. We are currently the seventh best team in England and Wales and in Karen Carpenter’s words “We’ve Only Just Begun”.

    Okay, okay long way to go and all that but we’re ****ing seventh right now. Enjoy Christmas!

    It's great to look at.

    Personally I'll be delighted for us to get to 40 points, sooner the better.

    Looks like a league table from the early 70s - just about old enough to remember

    Incidentally, we also now have the same number of points (25) as our final points total in 2011-2012 in the prem

    So should Newcastle....they were winning 2-0 but then let United score 3. We would have more points today than United.

    Up here, Man U fans are gutted and cautiously furious that as a newly promoted team we are only one place behind them.

    Realistically we can only hope to finish at the top of the Prem 2nd tier which we are doing right now. Aside from the top 6 the rest are a real mix of pretty average sides tbh. We are as good as any of them and if only we could get a regular and consistent front 3 who are all performing we really could push Utd for that 6th spot. All to play for.

    Dare to dream. Not perhaps this season. Leicester won the PL at 5,000-1. If they can do it...

    In every respect.

    Ground
    Squad
    Turnover
    Potential spending within FFP

    Wolves are a very long way from the SKY Six and will never be allowed to challenge them. Had Fosun said hello when the Arabs bought Man City then we would be laughing.

    As it is, we have missed the boat and will only ever be another Everton at best. Let that sink in and know that it is only a matter of time before Fosun realise this too.

    The BEST thing that can happen for Wolves is for FFP to be abolished and/or clubs above us going bust and doing an 80's Wolves.

    Then we can get excited.

    I can’t stop admiring the table; City, Liverpool, Spurs, Chelsea ,Arsenal, Man Utd, Wolves.

    It certainly looks like we are on our way back!

    The pedant in me needs to point out that they're Paul Williams's words. But I agree with the sentiment...

    Declaring Manure's aims for the season Mourinho just said "The best we can finish is 4th but for sure, definitely we'll finish at least 6th"

    Really Josè, really??? :D

    But are we going to win another game, is Nuno two games from the sack? Hate to keep repeating this but could likely lose the next 3 games and then be back to deja vous and all the wetters lining up to put pressure on the Palace game.

    One thing we know - there's always some miserable **** waiting to tell us they knew it would all fall apart. Better to just enjoy it while it lasts (which is a long time yet).

    If we held on in 7th till the end of the season that would be a fantastic performance. With one or two quality recruits in January I genuinely believe this is possible. But another central striker and wing back are crucial. Saiss and Dendoncker are probably adequate central midfield cover for now with MGW hopefully continuing to grow in confidence. Another attacking midfielder would not go amiss but would not want to block MGW's evolution and 3412 is definitely the way to go

    Just a quick promising one...
    I know the leaders are running away with the league 19 points ahead.
    However last season wolves were top at christmas with 55 points, bristol 2nd with 47 points and Millwall were 16th with 27 points.
    At the end of the season wolves were still top with 99 points, Bristol had dropped down to 11th with 67 points and Millwall had shot up to 8th with 72 points! Fantastic achievement
    My point being that Liverpool and man city can run away for all I care however if we carry on playing like we do then I can't see the likes of arsenal and tottenham keeping the 10 points gap they currently have!
    Just food for thought ;-) we can only dream....the one dream....the Nuno dream;!!!

    Understand your argument, but disagree.

    Leicester have shown it’s possible to win this league without big six finances. Fosun have deep pockets and understand that they can invest in the ground and commercial side to grow our revenue without falling foul of FFP, even if FFP limits their ambitions on the pitch in the short term. Most clubs do not have such ambitious and wealthy owners. Mendes gives us access to players we otherwise could not attain without regular European football. Put all that together, and it’s possible to see how Wolves could achieve on pitch success in the short term, ala Leicester, while investing in the club to build revenue great enough to compete with the bigger clubs longer term. It might take 5-10 years, but it’s not impossible.
