Wake me up when September ends.
Well, now you’ve done that, it’s been a pretty good month, hasn’t it?
Since the last international break Wolves have charged to 2nd in the Championship, achieved 13 out of 18 points and wriggled their way into the fourth round of the League Cup.
Apart from a blip against promotion runners Sheffield United (and a certain Leon Clarke), Wolves have kept up their end of the bargain.
Wolves have had to grind out results in some games but you know the saying how ‘winning when playing badly is a sign of promotion’ etc.
The current glut of games came to an end with a blistering 4-0 away victory to Burton Albion, with the foreign contingent and Mendes stable the stars of the show.
Perhaps with the greatest respect to Burton Albion, they weren’t a side to worry Nuno on that Saturday afternoon.
It was though a classy and straight forward away victory, which we shouldn’t disregard.
Certain doubts may have sprung to mind following defeat to Sheffield United, but they should have been cast aside just as Wolves did to the Brewers.
Fan expectation is high, but it is rightfully so.
The football is something to dream of, and the quality of the players we have at our disposal is something out of a Football Manager textbook.
Vinagre is becoming as tasty as his name suggests on a holiday portion of chips, Costa is your mate you’ve been waiting for on a good night out.
Sorry, should have said ‘Sesh’ then.
Bonatini is giving it the old DX to his doubters and Jota is the Sega Dreamcast that we were all in awe of and is actually succeeding.
Celebrate and gloat with what we have, and keep showing your friends that Gif of Cavalerio putting Stephen Warnock out into the pastures as much as you like.
It’s a cocky attitude we haven’t been able to show for a good ten years now.
Whilst the wolf pack is clearly on the march, keep those feet firmly on the ground.
There is still a lot to do.
Knew I could get a Marvel reference in here somewhere.
If you treat the last run of games as one phase, you need to do the same treatment to the next group of matches before another ‘anticipated’ international break.
Despite Wolves lofty position, they are yet to defeat a team in the top 6.
Although Wolves produced some impressive wins against Middlesborough, Derby and Hull, all sides were in their infancy at the start of the season.
Nuno needs an impressive win against one of the settled high flyers.
Both of Wolves defeats have come against current top 6 rivals in Cardiff City and Sheffield United.
Phase 3 or October to you and me is the first chance to break that.
Yes they’re currently in seventh but Aston Villa will be the first chance to answer this question.
Only a few weeks ago Aston Villa fans were calling for Steve Bruce’s head.
Four wins on the trot later, things are probably looking a bit rosy.
You may not see one of those over the road as a serious threat, but beat this winning streak in comfortable fashion and tongues will wag further.
Couple this with a home game to sixth place Preston North End and potential late October high flyers Norwich City, Wolves have the chance to extend their revolution the masses.
On 24th October, Nuno and his team have a chance to make themselves known.
An away tie to Manchester City in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup might seem straight forward on paper, but this could be the opportunity to get some more exposure at what is happening at Molineux.
No matter the side Pep decides to send out on that Tuesday night at the Eithad Stadium, it will ooze class.
We would all like to see the first team let loose over a blue moon, but it is likely that Nuno will reward those who have seen Wolves through the earlier rounds.
Guardiola might question the need for the competition, but he shouldn’t underestimate the opposition ahead of him.
All Pep needs to do is to look at Wolves record in knockout competitions away from home in 2017 and the type of opposition that the side has been through.
Liverpool, Southampton and Stoke have been put to the sword on their home turf.
Even in the days of Paul Lambert.
We’re all licking our lips at the prospect of Nuno v Pep and thought of the Mendes Stable causing havoc in Manchester.
However, this game will be a good barometer, a reality check, as to how good life really is at the moment.
Whether we’re witnessing a side too good to be true, or compared to the opposition put in front of them so far, whether we’re still a huge distance to where we want to be.
A brave man would still highlight some of the potential flaws in Nuno’s side.
In this social media world, I am not that brave. Perhaps another day
For now, keep that smile on your face.
Use the international break to see how good Wolves are on FIFA.
Dream of how good it could get.
Have a little patience though. The first true test is to come.
