A lot of teams go to Stoke, lose a goal from a long throw, let their heads drop and leave the Potteries with nothing.
Wolves' comeback to grab a point at such a diffuclt hunting ground at the weekend made me beam with pride.
McCarthy's men might not be as techinically gifted or as incisive as other teams, but few can match their character.
And talking of character - Nenad Milijas deserves a huge mention.
The Serb has had a disappointing start to his career at Wolves after showing great promise in pre-season.
He's got bags of quality, but has always looked like he needs more time than English teams give to find it.
There was a danger that he could become the new Thomas Frankowski - big money signing, ill-suited to the rough and tumble of England and a failure as a consequence.
But Milijas has stayed positive, carried on trying to find the clever pass when he's had his opportunities and always worked hard for the team.
It all paid off against Stoke when he came on as a sub in the second half and floated in two beautiful deliveries for Craddock's two goals.
He rightly got a massive roar from the crowd as he left the field.
I've lamented Wolves' inability to convert set pieces on this page before.
Milijas could be the remedy to that.
