I’ll confess, I tuned into Sky Sports yesterday fully expecting to watch us capitulate against Manchester City.
With Sergio Aguero and Carlos Tevez having a devastating partnership together up front and with us being forced to hand Dorus De Vries his first Premier League appearance, this game had the recipe to be an afternoon to forget.
I expected goals galore and an uncomfortable atmosphere inside Molineux as we were humiliated into relegation.
As it turned out, the end result was the same, Championship football next season, but the feeling around Molineux appeared to be better.
OK so Manchester City made a lot of noise at times, hardly surprising considering Everton had just handed them a lifeline in the Premier League title race drawing 4-4 with Manchester United. But our lads and lasses did the team proud, singing to the very end as the heavens opened on the final whistle.
You can’t help wondering if the crowd had remained supportive throughout the season instead of getting on the players backs, the managers back, the boards backs, that maybe, just maybe things could have turned out differently this season.
So ok Sergio Aguero did do his best to keep the score respectable with miss after miss, but we did perform in this game and until the second goal killed us off, we looked like we could have got back into the game. A win was probably unlikely, but at least we didn’t embarrass ourselves……
………with a team that apart from maybe two or three, could be a similar starting line up to opening day in the Championship.
With the right man in charge, it might be just a short visit back to the football league and at least with relegation confirmed we can begin to look optimistically at next season.
