Still Unpredictable

Despite a decidedly mediocre performance since the end of November, my football team continues to confound me with its unpredictability as they have now been guaranteed promotion to the Premier League next season and will, in fact, probably come top too, unless we lose both remaining matches and Birmingham score about ten goals. My godfather, who went to watch Wolves beat QPR yesterday, said he hadn't seen them play better since last autumn, not that that's saying much.

Amusingly, the QPR boss said, after the match, according to the BBC, "I don't want to take anything away from Wolves, it's their day. I've got a lot of respect for Mick McCarthy. It would be nice to be in the same situation next season." Ah yes, it's always good for football managers to aspire to inconsistency, unpredictability, opportunities missed, fans disappointed and the inevitable chant of, "maybe next season."

Well, maybe next season, Wolves will actually make something of themselves in the top flight. However, I don't think it's too cynical or pessimistic of me to predict that they will be straight back down the following season. Unless they gave up predictability in 2009, of course...
