A bit philosophical, this, but I'm really struggling to pin down exactly what I'm supposed to be supporting at the moment.

The players? In the main, I don't like them much as footballers or as people, and I'm well aware that most of those I do like care 99% about their wages and 1% about the club (which is the norm these days, I know, but ...). But that wouldn't be so bad if there was commitment from

The board? Clearly clueless, and steering the club into oblivion. For all SJH's faults, I think Wolves ran through his veins. The only time Wolves will reduce Morgan to tears if if they lose his money. But that wouldn't be so bad if I had liking and respect for

The manager? No comment required, except that sacking Stale was, for me, the final nail in the coffin. Still, even then there's the big group hug you get from twenty thousand

Fellow fans? Well, if the more opinionated section of the support represents the majority, that's not something I can identify with either. When I used to go every week, it seemed to me that we were all on the same side and of the same mind. From what I read on here from those who still go every week, it's more like a war zone.

I'm no glory hunter, but when you take all that away, and add the despair of abject failure, just what is there left for me to support? How would my life be worse if this version of Wolves wasn't in it? For the first time, I'm thinking it might actually be better.

Clearly, I won't switch allegiance, but I'm certainly starting to wonder whether it might be better to simply walk away until there is something here to support.

So, what are your reasons for keeping the faith? Wolves, ay we, but just what does that mean in 2013?

What do you base this assumption on?

The revolution of the squad is coming and that will be something to look forward to. I hope that it will happen in this division next season with a new manager in place.

Wolves ay we means jack shit to me.

Well I can agree with all of that, but I am not willing to give up on it and be the guy that walks away.

We're a pit of despair right now and I don't believe there has been a worse product on the field for Wolves. Our league position could still get worse but at least the team can only get better. They are rock fucking bottom and regardless of what happens, the summer is going to bring us a brand new look and finally get rid of the utter dross that has poisoned this club for the better part of 3 years now.

This is the only ray of sunshine at the moment. The fact that a major clear out is on the horizon (preferably of both playing and backroom staff) is the only positive.

Wolves have never really treated their fans well at all but the current split between club and fans is huge. I'm not talking about the mouth breathing window lickers that were protesting outside the Billy Quiet either, they can piss off and support someone else for all I care. Wolves have belittled, patronised and insulted their own fan base for years now and personally I feel completely disillusioned with the club and everything it stands for. If it were a matter of choice I wouldn't touch this poxy foul smelling club with a ten foot barge pole but a Wolves fan is what I am and I can no more stop caring about what happens to them than I can detach my foot and ram it down Stephen Hunt's neck.

From the top down there is a small time culture of pettiness, arrogance and failure.

It's not 'Just because results are poor' either, as Jez and Steve were insisting at the Fans Parliament. Wolves have made alienating their own fan base an art form over the last 5 years.

I'll be still supporting Wolves long after the players and current management are gone.

We're going through tough times but my support is unwavering. You support your club through thick and thin.

Bring on next season - in the Championship or League 1. The pubs will still be there and they'll still serve beer, the stadium will still be there and players will be representing the club - I just hope I have a bit more respect for next season's playing staff than I do for this sorry lot.

A lot of this current shower will be elsewhere in August leaving a hell of a lot of doom and gloom in their wake. They won't care about that but it's our job as supporters to keep the faith and carry on regardless of where we find ourselves.

Well i support Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club, and that is despite idiot managers, a totally football lacking chairman, and the worst bunch of couldn't care less, egotistical assholes in the team for a good many years.
What can i do, i have a moan, voice my thoughts and still have no choice but to carry on supporting my team.

It's in the blood, and that's that.
