Could Wolves be the most successful promotion team of the century?

Could Wolves be the most successful promotion team of the century?

Last year, Wolves was very much the Manchester City of the Championship. The team looked head and shoulders above the rest, promotion to the top flight seemed a formality, and so it turned out to be. Nevertheless, taking that step up is always a challenge, and promoted teams have a habit of being found out at the next level.

New Winger Kightly Takes on Pennant & Etherington | Stats Comparison

Stoke fans would be unanimous in the thinking that last season was the worst that Matthew Etherington has had in a Stoke shirt. Add in Jermaine Pennant's lack of game time due to "off the field" issues and the shocking decline in both quality of play and attacking flair has been clear for all to see, especially over the past twelve months.

Hennessey v Krul | Stats Comparison

Given the lack of a manager at Wolves, it will be Mick McCarthy’s former assistant, Terry ‘Clipboard’ Connor who takes the reins at Wolves away game at Newcastle United. Given this progression, it is not expected that there will be a number of changes to the personnel selected. One player, though, is surely guaranteed a place – Wayne Hennessey. Yes, he made a massive error in McCarthy’s defeat to West Brom, an error that allowed them to retake the lead …
