With all this gale force weather whipping up one or two headlines in recent days, there’s been little mention of lightning striking in the same place twice in the past 24 hours.
For us fans of a gold and black persuasion, changeable conditions have been something of the norm in recent times but in beating Blackburn Rovers 1-0 at Ewood Park, a bolt from the heavens flashed through my mind.
Roughly a year ago Wolves suffered a mid-season blip with just one win in seven – including that TV shocker at Gillingham – as one or two clouds threatened a downpour.
Enter Nouha Dicko in the window, a manager settled on his best side and we responded with nine straight wins and a League One title cakewalk.
Sure, few can realistically expect similar silverware come May, but roll the clock forward from then and the similarities are striking.
A recent run of five straight miserable defeats has been followed with 13 points from a possible 15 and the impending arrival of another jet-heeled forward in the window, this time Benik Afobe.
The sun has certainly got his hat on after this impressive scalp in Lancashire and the outlook can only be a good one as Kenny Jackett appears to at last settle on his preferred starting XI.
Where our team lacked cohesion in November, we now boast partnerships all over the pitch, as McDonald is reunited with Price, Stearman with Batth and Dicko with Sako, before the latter departed for Mali duty.
And in Kortney Hause and Dominic Iorfa, we have been supplemented with two of the most exciting young break-through acts since the class of Keane and co.
So good are they of late that Matt Doherty and Scott Golbourne would not get a look in today, whether 100% fit or not.
David Edwards’ winner in our third successive away triumph was testament to our wonderful new full-backs and that rock solid partnership between them.
Where we were once porous we are now resolute and despite Sako departing for Africa we still boast enough pace and guile to attack with menace when the time arrives.
In this case, it was just after half-time when Edwards ran from deep to collect a Dicko pass and smash a low shot into the net.
The floodgates really should have opened after that, with Batth missing a great chance with his head, Dicko smashing against the bar and van La Parra squandering his now obligatory open goal opportunity.
As one work European colleague succinctly told me and my UK colleagues the other week:
‘In England, you say if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it.
‘In Europe we say if it isn’t broke, then let’s keep looking to make improvements regardless.’
If one criticism can be made of Kenny Jackett this season, it’s that he did neither up until now.
George Saville and Tommy Rowe offered no advancement on the Price / McDonald partnership that previously blossomed, likewise the preference for Ebanks-Landell over Stearman.
The blue skies that now appear on the horizon after yesterday’s marvellous win suggests these improvements are bona fide.
So what for a forecast from now until May?
Now a mini-storm has passed, the prospects for warmer temperatures around Molineux are looking good!
