We’ve all had to keep ourselves occupied lately.
Whether you’re working, furloughed, unemployed or other I suspect you’ve found things to keep you sane.
One of the things I’ve enjoyed is catching up on the many great Wolves podcasts that are out there. It’s helped keep me tethered to something that quite literally takes up most of my social life.
As well as the expected chat about our top four prospects, many of the episodes I’ve listened to have harked back to yesteryear and allowed me to broaden my knowledge of all things gold and black.
And there was something refreshingly throwback about aspects of our performance tonight.
Our winner was almost Roy of the Rovers-esque in its simplicity, with the buccaneering Adama laying it on a plate once again for an imperious Jimenez.
The way that the former had swashbuckled through the Bournemouth team in the first-half was more akin to a kid in a playground, as was Neto’s attempts at scoring a late wonder goal.
Each instance showed that Nuno’s team, while one of the most well-regimented in the league, is not one to over-complicate things for the sake of being clever.
Put simply, they get the job done.
And that’s what they had to do tonight against a dogged but ultimately uninspiring Bournemouth team.
Let’s be frank, this was a dull and mostly uneventful game of football and no amount of spin could make you believe otherwise.
Mind you, BT Sport’s simulated crowd noise did temporarily make me question it by piping in the most raucous Bournemouth crowd I’ve heard!
But we’ve crucially found a way of winning these sort of encounters, with one after-game tweet noting that we have now taken 26 points from games against the bottom six (as opposed to 14 last season).
Such habits point towards a team capable of maintaining, or perhaps even bettering, its current lofty position in the table.
We all know that we’ll hear no such talk from the gaffer though, with eyes swiftly turning to Villa Park.
