On life at the (bottom of the) top

Written by World Wide Wolfie on November 9th, 2009

After Saturday’s defeat to Arsenal, Wolves find themselves in the bottom three for the first time in a while.¬† A good time, if not the most optimistic, to consider the very different experience of supporting¬†your team¬†in the Premier League to the Championship.

It’s never easy supporting Wolves (although I’m sure many a Luton Town supporter would argue that we have it easy) but who wants to go into a game knowing it will take a miracle to win it?¬†Quite a few, I think.¬† How would we choose, offered two scenarios: lose to Arsenal or Liverpool or beat Norwich or Doncaster?¬† Personally I’d go for the first, even if it happened every week, because every week there’s the hope of something better, rather than the far more realistic fear of something worse.¬† And every once in a while, that magic something actually happens, and that makes it all worthwhile.

The grounds are bigger, the stakes higher (and the players and the tickets more expensive), but what it ultimately comes down to is will you take a slapping from Arsenal now and again for the chance to win a few, to stay in the top 17 and do the same again next year?  I say yes!

    Yea, prem is better. Main thing I don’t like though is big breaks between games sometimes.

      I planted tiny hderangyas 4 years ago. I have experimented on pruning vs. not pruning. The ones that I haven’t pruned are now about 14 ft tall by 18 ft wide–no kidding. They are enormous with enormous blooms. The ones I cut back are still very small. So if you are looking for smaller bushes, I would recommend cutting back because my blooms are the happiest blooming off of old stalks. Yours look beautiful!

      The cat’s afraid of the Hydrangea Creature? Scary ineedd. My poor little hydrangea has never bloomed again since I got it, so I’m no use in the advice dept. Best of luck!

    Hi!Annabelle hydrangeas are in a dfneireft class than other types of hydrangeas, which means they bloom on new wood and old wood. So, that means you can cut them to the ground if you want to, and they will come back and bloom with gusto next spring.I have several Annabelles and have tried dfneireft approaches over the years – cutting all the way, cutting to 18″ to allow stems to get sturdier from year to year, etc. No matter what I do they tend to flop from the weight of the giant flowers. I know some people put cages around before they leaf out in the spring, but I’ve never gotten my act together in time to try that. If you can allow them the space to do what they do best (flop), my opinion is that is the easiest, and they do look pretty that way. It helps to extend the bed around them (with mulch/etc.) out past the “flopping zone” so it’s not such a challenge to mow the lawn next to them. Garden Web forums are a great resource for plant advice too. I would say if it’s been a long time since they were cared for, it would be good to take them all the way down this fall and clean everything up. It also helps reduce diseases and fungus that might be lurking in there.Hope that helps!

    thanks for this encouragement. I have euognraced women to write their birth stories, have many birth stories on my own blog, and have written about all of my births except one. I need to take the time to write about that birth. I think I will do it this week. Thanks for the reminder!!!

  6. This seems like a cigar that would age very well. I did think it was a bit heavy on the pepper at times, but I’m a bit of a lightweight so I tried to take that into consideration. I’ve heard a lot about the AF series as well, so I’ll be checking those out soon.
