Well a long season comes to an end tomorrow and we’re all hoping Wolves sign off with a win. It’s been a frustrating campaign, particularly for the fans who haven’t had much to cheer at Molineux. The home form clearly needs to be addressed next season and if Wolves can do that then they should hopefully be pushing towards that top six.All the fans will want to see tomorrow is 100 per cent effort and a desire to win. The players have got to roll their sleeves up, treat it like they would any other game, and get those three points. Preston will be tough opposition and won’t lie down, so we’ve got to want it as much as they do. If we can get a few goals as well then that’d put smiles on people’s faces.

The season ticket numbers for next season are brilliant. We all know the support is there and everything is in place off the pitch, so now it’s about having a team good enough on the pitch.

It’s the player of the season awards on Tuesday…I wouldn’t want to be the adjudicator for that! There aren’t a huge amount of contenders to be honest. I’d be looking at the die hard ones like Carl Ikeme and Dave Edwards who’ve both had solid, consistent seasons. Ikeme has very much been number one keeper and you can count his mistakes on one hand. Edwards has had his best season yet in terms of goals scored and again he’s someone who never lets you down and performs week after week. He’s Mr Faithful to Wolves and I think players like him and Ikeme keep the dressing room together. Helder Costa is top scorer and provides that bit of magic. For me he blows hot and cold a lot and sometimes disappears in games. He’s extremely talented and can dig Wolves out of a hole. If it wasn’t for his goals this season they’d be struggling. It’ll be interesting to see what happens to him this summer – teams have had a chance to have a proper look at him now and I’m sure there’ll be some who fancy taking him.

There are a few tickets left for our Father’s Day lunch with me and Suzi Perry at Molineux next month. There’ll be a four-course lunch, Suzi will be asking me loads of questions for a Q&A on stage and every person attending gets a gift, while people can also get mounted photographs with them and me (one per every two guests). It’ll be a great day and tickets are only £55 so email jacky@stevebullevents or call 07980 734751 to book. It’s on Sunday June 18.
