Dave Edwards: Has warned Wolves against complacency

Dave Edwards: Has warned Wolves against complacency

Edwards, on course to return from a broken metatarsal in time for pre-season, will be looking to secure an immediate return to the Championship after Wanderers last week took up a 12-month contract option on his services.

Wolves find themselves in the third tier of English football for the first time since 1989 following disastrous back-to-back relegations, but Edwards has a clear message for anyone thinking they will stroll to promotion next term.

"I've played in every league from the Conference up so I know what League One is like. It's a tough league and if people think we're going to turn up to places and win four or 5-0, they're wrong," the 27-year-old told the club's official website.

"It's not going to be like that - it's about going to those tough away grounds and grinding out 1-0 wins, which is what we'll need to do.

"Look at all the teams who get relegated from the Championship - not many of them jump straight back up. It's a very tough league and you can't always play the way you want to play.

"It's about getting results. I'm aware of that and I'm sure whoever is manager - and whichever new players come in - will be fully aware of it as well."

Meanwhile, Wolves' search for a new head coach following the sacking of Dean Saunders is set to step up a gear this week with the return of chief executive Jez Moxey after a short break.

Former Millwall boss Kenny Jackett is currently the bookies' favourite while former England boss Steve McClaren has also been linked.

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.

Reward At Last For Years Of Careful Planning

W

e all know the British public don't have the patience to plan for 14 years. No chance. As soon as our young players don't win the world cup they get harrassed and abused to the point of mental breakdown. No, England likes to react to failure by sacking the manager and tearing up their best laid plans in favour of something shiny and new to keep the knee jerkers happy.
