Dances With Wolves Box ArtIf you needed to be reminded of the gap that exists between the Haves and the Have Nots in League One, this weekend’s game will help you out. On the pitch, there is just a fine line between sticking the ball in the goal and, well, not doing that. But that’s just a reflection of the disparity off the pitch, where money and resources can make a significant difference to the outcome of one 90-minute match.

After all, Boro’ don’t have the luxury of benching a striker who scored in five league games on the spin because you’ve got another lad – a full international and the like – ready to step in. But as we often do, we give a bloody good account of ourselves on the pitch and make it hard to tell which team has come from the Premier League and which team has come from the Blue Square Premier.

When you talk about making good starts and keeping it tight for as long as possible, going one down inside seven minutes don’t help and it was a pretty bad one to concede. There wasn’t much to write home about their second either, but losing at Molineux isn’t the end of the world and nor should we be too down. Wolves ought to go up and it will be a disaster for them if they don’t.

Wolves will definitely win one award this season though. The Dopiest Chant Of The Year gong is theirs because “we’ll never play you again” isn’t the best idea for a chant when the league fixture list works on a Home and Away basis. See you February chaps!

  1. Friendly Wolves fan here.
    I was relieved when that second goal went in and I have to say that if it wasn’t for out amazing goalkeeper, the result could have been different.

    Also, I think that chant is hilarious!

  2. We certainly gave it a good go but just aren’t as clinical in front of goal. All the best for the rest of the season…
