Wolves have made a promising start to the 2021/22.

In actual fact, it has surprisingly been the club’s best start to a Premier League season.

Bruno Lage is doing a good job with the tools he has.

A tough period is on the horizon though, and it’s going to be very interesting to see how Wolves fare against the top teams in the league.

Currently, the team are sitting in sixth place.

That is a great achievement after losing the first three games 1-0.

Supporters have been talking about the team’s potential under the new manager after the first 12 games.

Most think in and around mid-table could be where the club end up.

But what do club officials think?

 

According to Liam Keen, there is hope that Wolves can secure a top 10 finish.

He told the official Norwich City website: “Internally, the club want top ten. I think Bruno thinks they can give a bit better than that as well.

“With the talent in the squad, they can certainly get into Europe. Is the depth going to hold them back and can they do enough business in January to help them consolidate those positions? Potentially.”

Top 10 would be good, but Wolves should aim high

Finishing in the top 10 would be a solid achievement from Bruno Lage. It would represent progress on last season.

But Wolves should set their sights higher, because there is so much talent in the squad.

If Fosun can deliver Lage a couple more quality players in the right positions in January, then there is definitely potential for a European push.

Optimism is growing at Molineux, but the board need to back the manager if the top 10 and beyond is to be achieved.
