Champions League

Don’t want to give our fortune the kiss of death but it is time to think about the next level up.
Clearly avoiding relegation might be a good start. We have been running on fumes recently (Man City gloriously excepted) with ugly draws, late last gasp goals and quieter crowds. The story is that Nuno prefers a smaller squad (probably I guess about as much as any of us prefer a smaller bank balance) and last nights Boy Scout’s show indicates nothing. See what we have for you next time , Villa!! But to get to the top four, and stay there, requires the kind of investment that Jeff Shi claims to be avoiding (sixty, eighty million per player). Mendez has helped find some gems, loans and bargains, but that lustre has certainly been tested this season with our less-than-marquee signings requiring ‘patience’. Oh god. We also have to hang on to our best players; just as Boly got injured the talk was of him moving to a BIG club. If one thing irritates me it is the assumption that Wolves are not a top club ( not being grandiose, but one element of being top is feeling and acting top). Chelsea and Man City went, quickly, from mediocre middle of the pack nonentities to the pinnacle. Mostly money (you listening Jeff?) but also arrogance and a kind of superiority. Yes it is ludicrous but for our top players to stick around and for the best to come here, we have to move forward and do it now. Success is temporary, fragile. We have had a taste of progress, huge by our recent standards but we are not yet competing regularly. If we go out of the Europa early and finish middle of the table that would historically be fabulously successful, but for where we are claiming to aspire it would be a catastrophe.
We need to spend, but we especially need to stop looking over our shoulders.
