Bully: Travelling Wolves army will drive team on
Wolves travel to Barnsley today absolutely brimming with confidence and backed by a huge away following.
Almost 5,000 fans... that’s just fantastic support and I bet they could have shifted a load more as well.
As a player when you walk out that tunnel and see that so many supporters have travelled a few hours to come and cheer you on – it really does give you an extra push.
Every club is looking to take Wolves’ scalp and Barnsley will be no different but the big thing for Wolves this season is that they have the right mentality, they never look complacent and they take every game on its merits.
Last week’s draw against Swansea in the FA Cup was another sign that Wolves have the quality to match or outplay Premier League teams.
We saw it at Southampton and Manchester City in the Carabao Cup as well. Wolves have the ability to make very good teams look normal.
The replay isn’t ideal but Nuno has the mentality of wanting to win every single match and you’d fancy their chances of getting through that tie and setting up a fourth round game at Notts County.
Jack Price left for Colorado Rapids this week after many years at Molineux and I’m sure every supporter will join me in wishing him well.
Jack was good servant to the club and he probably didn’t want to leave but aged 25 he needs to be playing every week and going to America is a big opportunity.
He’d been in and out the team for the past few seasons but with Jack you knew he’d always do a job when called upon.
It’s a new era now – we’ve seen Nouha Dicko, Dave Edwards and also Lee Evans leave – and everything has changed quickly.
I thought we needed a central midfielder anyway but now Price has gone they might be a bit short in that area. A centre half might be an option too in case anything happens to Conor Coady or Willy Boly.
They won’t be short of players wanting to join – everyone will look at Wolves as a club on the up and that’s a big advantage in the transfer market.
