Sky Sports pundit David Edwards thinks a mid-table finish would represent a successful season for Wolves.
Former Molineux midfielder Edwards thinks that a steady first campaign under Bruno Lage would be a good return.
He used his Express and Star column to say that there will be inconsistencies under Lage while he beds in his ideas.
“I don’t think Wolves fans are expecting huge, major success this year,” he wrote.
“I don’t think they expect Europe or anything. If they can finish between ninth and 12th that’ll be a good season where big changes have happened off the pitch.
I think a few more transfer windows will really help with Bruno Lage’s philosophy but also his style of play.
“I read a Conor Coady interview and he said the lads are absolutely loving training and the detail in that, they see huge value in it. It will take time to really grow as a club, but they have the right man in charge.”
Journalist Rory Smith predicted that Wolves would finish 12th before the season started, and said that would be a good return.
His BBC colleague Phil McNulty also thought Wolves would finish in the exact same position.
Tony Cascarino had Wolves down for relegation, but that does not look to be on the cards at all under Lage.
A top half finish with a new manager after last season’s struggles under Nuno Espirito Santo would represent a decent campaign.
