It's hard to know whether to welcome or worry about the latest England squad selection. Matt Jarvis isn't in it and I think he should be. Johnson too would have a shout if Fabio picked his players based on form and not who they play for.

It seems unfair to our players and may have an impact on our attractiveness as a club in the future. On the other hand, the Wolves fan in me shouts louder than the England fan.

It might be the high of three wins out of three. Or perhaps it’s the warm feeling that you get from outpassing and outclassing a team that accused you of dirty tactics last season. Whatever it is, it has got me thinking about the Wolves squad and just how flippin’ brilliant it is.

So the new season is under way and the 2-1 win at Blackburn was the best possible start. The victory was especially significant because of the way it came about - away from home, against a lower/middle-order club and after going a goal behind. It's early days of course but with this success Wolves showed the qualities that are essential in becoming an established Premier League outfit.
