Job done - no boys cried at Wolves

Benayoun continued in the midfield and Ramsey came in for the presumably tired Rosicky, and we started delightfully.  A neat one two between RVP and Theo saw the latter run through on goal, Bassong couldn't touch him without being sent off and conceding a penalty, yet this is precisely what the stupid Wolves defender did, he ran across both Theo's heels and have the referee no choice, RVP chipped home and one nil it was.  Then a few minutes later another cracking one two between the same two saw Theo clear again, a great side footed finish gave Hennessey no chance, two nil and the game looking over.

Wolves put in a fantastic shift having gone two down, they played like they were eleven, giving us no time to settle and they went on to create a few decent chances, only some stunning Szczesny saves in the second half denying them their moment of glory.  Benayoun did add some icing to the cake late on in the second half, it was finished at three nil, but Wolves did still have time to force another amazing Szczesny save.

It was as simple as job done tonight, no game is easy in the Premier League, especially away from home and Wolves proved this, credit to them for their fight and drive, even though they had precious little chance of getting back into the game.  Djourou put in a solid shift at centre back, as did Vermaelen, Arteta and Song were immense, we worked hard as a unit with Benayoun typifying this determined efficiency, on the downside Santos was a tad suspect with some of his decision making.  Three points was what was needed and three points achieved, happy days.
