Football’s a funny old game, isn’t it?
In 2014, Wolves were slugging it out in the third-tier of English football and were a long way back from the bright lights of the Premier League, let alone the top end of it.
However, we are now just over a week away before entering 2020 and they are comfortable up there. Despite having to compete in both the Europa League and the Premier League, they have competed remarkably well in both of them: they are sixth in the league and into the knockout stages of the European contest.
With it being Christmas time, plenty are feeling grateful for what they have and are thinking of their loved ones – Wolves fans are no different.
Supporter @dinglette1972 tweeted about just how well the club are doing after their last match before Christmas, to which many other fans responded with their positive messages, as you can read below…
Exciting times but as Nuno says we stay humble x

Fans, players and staff are all worthy of letting their hair down for a nice few days as they enjoy the Christmas period, however, they know it will be short-lived considering the games they have coming up.
Where do the club most need to invest in January?
In the club’s next match they have Manchester City coming to Molineux, who are likely to be wanting their own back after Nuno Espirito Santo’s men turned them over at the Etihad.
It doesn’t get any easier after that, either. Just two days after that they travel to Anfield to face a Liverpool team that has dropped just two points all season.
