"Wondered what their shirt logo was all about? A tangy, crispy snack ideal for dips? No, it's an acronym: DORITOS - Division One Rubbish In Tatty Orange Shirts....and they're in round four."

- nufc.com



In all seriousness, fair play to you. We played like arrogant millionaires and paid the price. You fought hard and got the result.

Good luck against the Foxes.

There's an old saying that the dog that barks loudest never bites. They did a lot of barking but we bit them pretty hard. Uruguay's attitude just showed how scared they were of us - it was their last resort."

I agreed with what Sir Bobby and Alan said, they need all their players to put in the effort and they didnt, good look with the league.

Fair play to the Wolves for once they actually played well and didn't throw it all away as they usually do

Newcastle had their chances but Murray played well.

I did fancy getting them in the 4th round but Watford away will do.

How come you like the custard bowl mob?

Wolves are a very big club and its good to see them doing well in the FA cup which they have won on numerous occasions in the past. Hopefully we can see them back in the top flight sooner rather than later.

Will "sleeping giants" Wolves finally make it into the Premiership this year ???

They definitely cannot be ruled out,
and I think they will now get into the play-offs.

I am envious at the money they have spent, and can spend,
but money doesn't always mean success

It was great when Norwich knocked Wolves out of the play-offs last year.

Why's that?
Where has it got Wolves???
Nowhere, I wouldn't have thought there are any teams outside the prem who have spent more money.

The Wolves management are far too cocky, and they got their just desserts last season after printing "Wolves in The Premiership" mugs and selling Premiership sesason tickets, when they hadn't gone up yet, but were numerous points clear.

This must have sent a message to the players that they had done enough, so that both Man City and us caught them, and left them all with huge egg on their faces.

The look on their faces on the final day of the season last season will always be with me.

If you deserve to go up there you will,
so far Wolves haven't deserved to go up.

Well all the misfits at Wolves haven't managed it yet have they?
How long has Sir Jack been pumping money into the club to get where?

You are where you currently belong DIVISION 1.

We are where we belong as we beat so many sides last season, like Wolves away 2-1 for instance. We got up on merit.

Its actaully the only way you can go up.
You, obviously with quotes like that, and like most other dingles, think it is your divine right to be up in the Prem, and as they all found out it means nothing, you HAVE to do it on merit. Be the best or second best team in the division and you will go up. But so far despite all the money and so called 'quality' players you haven't. Unlike the Baggies that were the second best team in Div 1 last season and duly won promotion.

I mean how hard can it be when you have all the quality players that Wolves have???

We are up here and enjoying it thank you, regarless of where we finish in May.

Even Small Heath made it up here before the old gold and black.

If you dont go up this season I would think Sir Jack will fire Dave Jones.

The teams that deserve to get promoted always do.

The top 2 teams who are automatically promoted deserve it,
because they have won more points over 46 games than the other 22 teams in that league.

The team that gets promoted through the play-offs each season always deserves to get promoted too.

Some people say that the play-offs are unfair/cruel,
as very rarely does the 3rd placed team win promotion.

But if the 3rd placed team did deserve to get promoted,
they would of been good enough to beat the 6th placed team over 2 legs,
and then beat the 4th or 5th placed team @ a neutral venue.

I'm usually not one to 'bash' clubs (unless their names start with 'S' and end with 'underland'), but here's a tasty little quote from nufc.com and Wolves claims to being called a 'big club':

"Thankfully, we (NUFC) always seemed to distance ourselves from the sort of things that scream "wannabe big club" - even in our darkest of days. But when you see fireworks (I don't think this is a SKY thing...yet...), goading furry mascots (ours are awful but still don't do this), balloons and music to get the fans going, you know that you are at a small club. Oh, and of course a snatch of Song 2 by Blur when their goals go in - the mark of no-marks everywhere.

The laughable thing is that Wolves think they are anything but. Even if they do go up (God forbid with some of the vermin that supports them) they'd still be firmly in the Bolton, Charlton, Fulham category - they all have a bit of history and "Billy Wright's too.... No, Sunday was a stark reminder of a former existence and one best left forgotten."


Says it all really, and I'm sure Balis agrees...

Who me??????
What just cause would I have for disparaging Wolves????

One of my best mates supports Wolves, and some of the things that WW were doing last season made even him cringe. (Im talking off the field in the management!)
