If the game was something of a damp squib, the occasion certainly wasn’t.
Molineux was raucous from beginning to last, resplendent in the sunshine as Leander Dendoncker’s volleyed winner moved Wolves a step closer to European qualification.
The South Bank treated us to their best hits, including a rendition of a new tune made possible only half hour before the game.
There’s only one Dr Nuno was the unfamiliar cry of the golden masses, and it certainly has a nice ring to it.
The University’s decision to bestow our manager with an honorary degree is unlikely to generate headlines anywhere outside of the Express & Star, but it’s certainly a decision worthy of merit.
I never thought a manager could have such a transformative effect on a modern day football club, but Nuno has done that in spades.
Cast your mind back to where we were when he and his team first hitched up, and marvel at the extraordinary progress we’ve made since.
From the bottom half of the Championship to being the Premier League’s best of the rest, who knew so much could be achieved in just two years.
That being said, the manager is always keen to deflect praise onto the team and it’d be remiss of me not to at least namecheck a few of the performers that have made this journey so special.
Matt Doherty turned in another outstanding performance yesterday, chalking another assist against his name.
If there’s a more improved player at the club than the Irish Cafu then it’s arguably Connor Coady, who was rightfully showered in adulation during the post-game lap of honour.
Either side of him is the colossus pairing of Willy Boly and Ryan Bennett, who both continue to look naturals at this level.
On the left, Jonny has consistently shown himself to be a true Rolls-Royce of a defender.
In midfield, Reuben Neves continues to be the heartbeat of a midfield which so often leaves me picking my jaw up off the floor.
Alongside him is Joao Moutinho, arguably the best player most of us have seen in old gold. And Dendoncker, though not quite as flash as his counterparts, has grown to become an integral cog in Nuno’s system.
Up top is where the magic happens. If there’s a better strike partnership than Jota and Raul outside of the top six, I haven’t found it yet. Simply put, they’re the stuff dreams are made of.
And let’s not forget Rui Patricio, who hasn’t had much to do the last couple of weeks but has been a largely stellar performer this season.
There’s plenty of players sat on the bench who have made us smile at some point or other, all of which have played their part this term.
So what’s next? European tour? Top six assault? The realisation of Fosun’s ultimate ambition?
All mouthwatering questions, but perhaps, for now, we should just toast the bearded doctor and his team that have allowed us to ponder such wonderous things.
