Well what a week it’s been!
The open top bus tour and party in West Park last were absolutely unbelievable.
I’ve had some promotion parties in my time but that tops it all off and just shows you the size of this great club – there were thousands and thousands lining the streets.
I was on one of the buses and it was a fantastic thing to be part of.
There were some amazing scenes in the sunshine, everyone was so happy and they were singing my name too which after almost 20 years of retirement I’m so thankful for.
The scenes at West Park were absolutely scary, it looked like they’d crammed 60,000 in there.
Credit to the players, the fans and the organisers for making it such a special day that we’ll never forget.
Then on Tuesday we had the end of season awards…I tell you what it was a bit bigger than last year#’s, they couldn’t get tickets away then!
It was a huge event and my old pal Robert Plant kicked it all off with a great performance on stage that no one was expecting.
Robert’s one of us, he’s been through more ups and downs than I have and it was great to have him part of it.
Then another Plant – Steve – got an award for the magnificent work he’s been doing this year raising awareness and money for Cure Leukaemia in support of Carl Ikeme.
The job he does is phenomenal, even if he is always pestering me to sign things! Well done Planty.
Ruben Neves took home the main awards which were richly deserved.
The player’s player of the season award will mean the most to him. He came in with a huge price tag and expectations but he’s earned the respect of his team mates and that means a lot.
We also had a game last weekend…the less said about that the better!
We played Sunderland on the beach with our flip flops on. Well done to 2,500 fans for getting up at 5am and watching that, but we all know that the bigger picture was winning promotion three weeks earlier.
There’s a busy summer ahead and the transfer speculation has started already. The players all want to stay and I hope Wolves deliver with their new signings, I’m sure they will.
