Wolves will be in the Premier League next season!

Not many of us at half-time thought that would be the case, but the Premier League created a blockbuster story-line for those chaps at Sky, with Wolves snatching joy from despair in a frantic few minutes earlier this afternoon.

At half time, unbelievably Wolves had hit the self destruct button going in at the break 3-0 down to Blackburn, at this stage without question we were heading for the Championship with Blackpool and Birmingham both drawing at this stage. Wigan were also drawing at Stoke but they were also doomed at this stage.

But everything was about to change and on numerous occasions!

A Tottenham goal against Birmingham meant that they dropped into the relegation zone, with us leap frogging to safety despite still being 3-0 down at home.

Amazingly Blackpool were safely leading 2-1 against Manchester United and were up to 16th.

At half past five we decided to get involved in the action with Jamie O’Hara making it 1-3, a few minutes later Manchester United completed their comeback against Blackpool, 15 minutes after leading they were 3-2 down thanks to Blackpool defender Ian Evatt putting the ball past his own Keeper, Blackpool now 19th and Wigan, for the first time all afternoon were out of the bottom three.

Two minutes later and Wigan’s position was looking even better with Rodallega putting them ahead of Stoke.

One minute after that Craig Gardner equalised for Birmingham, within three minutes the whole relegation picture changed. It was now us and Blackpool joining West Ham in the Championship, with just 10 minutes remaining.

Blackpool’s fate was sealed when Michael Owen came off the bench to make it 4-2, while more importantly Stephen Hunt brought Wolves to within a goal of Blackburn, crucially bringing us level on points, level on goal difference, but ahead of Birmingham on goals scored with three minutes remaining.

Two minutes into stoppage time and Wolves fans could breath easy with Roman Pavlyuchenko putting Spurs 2-1 ahead against Birmingham…….there was nothing to ever worry about, we all said 40 points would be enough……
