GLENN Hoddle is hoping a sustained bout of 'Happy Families' will prove the catalyst to inspiring Wolves to the Premiership next season.
And he's not talking about picking up Mr Bone the Butcher or Master Bun the Baker's Son from the legendary card game of the same name.
No, Hoddle is referring to what he calls the 'family atmosphere' existing inside Molineux despite the size of the club.
Hoddle believes only with everyone pulling together towards the same goal, can any club stand a chance of tasting success.
"I knew Wolves was a big club before I came here," said Hoddle, in the wake of turning his initial sixmonth contract into a oneyear rolling deal.
"But what I like about it is there's also a family feel of harmony.
"I've played and worked at many different clubs at different levels, both at home and abroad, and it's difficult to get that big club philosophy but also keep the family atmosphere.
"You can only tell if a club has got it when you work there, it's impossible to see from the outside, but Wolves have got it.
"It's a unique atmosphere and in many ways that can be a big big positive.
"The best, and probably biggest example, is somewhere like AC Milan which is a huge huge club but also has that feel of everyone pulling together.
"That's important for success - you have to have the right spirit and feel about the place.
"It's no good if there's a tug of war going on or you're chasing your tail all the time having to spend too much time thinking about other things.
"I have seen clubs like that and have spoken to managers who have been at clubs like that.
"I remember when I was a player at Tottenham, when it was like that in the late 1970s.
"It wasn't until the whole thing settled down, and that atmosphere improved, that the success came.
"It was important for me that the club's ambition matched mine, and that is to make sure we get to the Premiership.
The two are married and go together, and now we've got make sure the players and staff are all working together.
"I've enough experience in football to know if your house is divided it will always fall flat and you all have to be working from the same songsheet.
"But I've seen enough in my six months here to decide that is the case and think we can be optimistic in looking ahead to next season."
The extensive four-week negotiation process before Hoddle put pen to paper covered a myriad of subjects, not least the ins and outs of player movements which he has already launched into with gusto.
There was also his backroom team, which will stay intact with several additions on the scouting and medical side, and the troubled Molineux pitch, including the guarantee of a complete re-lay should the current remedial work not be successful.
Chief executive Jez Moxey has marvelled at the detailed approach of his chosen manager, who has left no stone unturned in his quest to make sure everything's in good working order.
And with everything in such order, Wolves will once again start next season as one of the pre-season promotion favourites.
In previous years that has been viewed as a burden --not so under Hoddle.
"I think the Championship is going to be a tougher league next year so the pressure is on," he added.
"It's like the Grand National, and we've got 46 fences to clear.
"We know what the demands are from the fans, and we know what people outside the club think in terms of Wolves being one of the favourites for the Championship.
"But that's a realistic pressure, and one which I as manager will thrive on.
"As a club we have to take that expectation on board and relish it.
"We know we've got a decent squad and if there is that expectation about us outside the camp then let's use it to our advantage.
"Let's face it, the Premiership is where this club ought to be and where I want to be.
"This is a challenge we should all look forward to and I for one just wish the season was starting tomorrow."
