Mixed feelings towards Wolves. On the one hand, they were a disgrace at the Cottage earlier in the season. On other they’ve been quite good fun this season, the Premiership’s banana-skin surprise, capable of causing slip-ups when least expected.
Also, their 1950s sides were seriously good. Good to the point where their lack of recognition these days is a huge oversight: those Wolves teams were right up there with the best teams the league’s seen. Only Huddersfield of the 20th Century greats get more overlooked.
You could argue that the best English sides ever are:
Liverpool/United (massively good at various stages)
Arsenal (30s, 90s+)
Then a few others:
Huddersfield in the 20s
Wolves in the 50s
Chelsea in the 00s
Preston, Sunderland and Villa from the very early days
Everton in the 80s
Maybe Leeds from the 60s
Clough’s Forest perhaps
Spurs (a couple of really good teams, but low because they’ve never sustained it have they?)
Anyway, Wolves seem to be debt free, which was the initial point of all this. Good on them, in that sense, although it did require a bit of help earlier on.
