We’ve turned the corner...... only lost 1-0. :clap:

Last two home games against the Baggies and the Barcodes the quality from all the teams wouldn’t even be good enough for the Championship.

With the two Manc teams spending +£300m each in the last window the league is going the same way as Scottish Premier Division.
I reckon there’s about 8 teams in the Premier League that are basically rubbish the rest average at best and then a couple border line ok.

It's been like that for years though, we've had the odd fluke (Leicester, Arsenal) but money talks

Wolves fans used to moan about 'money has ruined the game' until we got a super rich owner

No green eyes here, I'm extatic with Wolves' position and progress. Just commenting on the obvious.

There is real competition in the Prem these days, not just a 1 or 2 horse race, clearly some teams not quite used to that

Agreed, all clubs and their fans yearn for a weathy benefactor although some still seem to spend less than others (Arsenal, Villa, Birmingham for example) and the whole 'marketplace' is swollen by Sky TV money.

Unless spending patterns change, I still think it's going to be a 2/3-horse race most of the time - with City, Utd and Chelsea being those three more often than not. Then there's a mini-league for 4th-6th with usually Arsenal, Scum, Liverpool and a surprise entrant or two (Burnley this season!). Then there's a handful who deem c8th to c14th a successful season and the rest fighting to remain in the PL. These two groups seem the most interchangeable.

Ther game has changed greatly in recent years and it's no longer a game far the fan ( who attends)......

An easier game next would have been better for West Ham. To go from 18th to 11th within two games would be nice but that just shows you how tight it is at the bottom.

Ya gotta love having games in hand :d

Still not too convincing, but 3points is always welcome,
Massive Cup match against Shrewsbury and a lesser team Thursday :d
Hope we stay injury clear and Moyes buys well, Joe Allen, Harry After on the books.. But Shelvey.. Gimme a break :shock:
