I have a suspicion this will end up being a preview for a game that doesn’t happen.
With snow on the ground already and more to come we may experience that increasingly rare phenomenon of ‘match abandoned’.
If it is called off that’s a blow and not just for those of us hoping to get out the house for a few hours on a Saturday afternoon.
With the points steadily rolling in, the quicker we can get through the games the better.
For that reason I hope everything that can be done is done to make sure the match goes ahead.
Chris Coleman has a job on his hands to get Sunderland out of this mess. They’re eerily reminiscent of the Wolves team that suffered the last double relegation.
They’ve lost half of the 20 games they’ve played so far and only managed two wins. Yes, you heard right, two wins.
Unlike shot shy Birmingham who are a place above them in the table, scoring goals hasn’t been an issue. The 26 they’ve netted so far is more than respectable. It’s the 38 they’ve conceded that’s the problem.
Only Burton (who are bottom) have shipped as many so the objective for Coleman is pretty obvious – shut the back door.
One nugget of hope for the Black Cats is that both their victories have been on the road. But they come into the game off the back of another disappointing home defeat to Reading.
Although Wolves managed a decent level of consistency in their performance at St. Andrew’s I did feel we missed Ruben Neves. I expect him to play tomorrow.
Helder Costa is really the only player whose getting a proper chance to come on and fight for his place. He was disappointing on Monday night.
It’s a shame for the likes of Ruben Vinagre and Bright Enobakhare who’ve done good things when they’ve played, but what can you do?
As well as the team are playing, the winning run can’t go on forever and when there is a drop in performance levels, it’s good to know we’ve got players to challenge.
There should definitely be an emphasis on quality over quantity in our January recruitment. Two players at most for me.
The only reasons you wouldn’t predict a Wolves win are those old favourites like ‘we’re due a bad result’.
We are definitely due a bad result, but logic dictates it shouldn’t be this one. If Wolves play anything close to their maximum it should be a seventh consecutive victory.
Pump up that orange ball lads.
Up The Wolves!
