Glenn Hoddle has always been a convert to the power of positive thinking and that has led, indirectly, to Jeremie Aliadiere's Wolves debut being put on hold.
The 22-year-old striker arrived at Molineux shortly before the transfer window closed on Tuesday evening; however, a time limit on his loan deal ensured that his debut has been put on ice so he can play if Wolves reach the end of season lottery known as the play-offs.
So Hoddle has decided to leave Aliadiere in cold storage for Saturday's trip to Leicester and the home clash with Crewe.
Aliadiere, who will link up for his first training session today, will finally be unveiled to supporters for the trip to Burnley on February 14.
"We have only got Jeremie for 93 days and wanted to make sure he was available for the end of season play-offs should we get there," explained chief executive Jez Moxey.
"People might say why not play him now, so that he helps us get to the play-offs?
"But we have already signed Tomasz Frankowski to try and do that.
"For footballing reasons the manager, Glenn Hoddle, would only allow Leon Clarke to join Queens Park Rangers on loan if we signed Jeremie, so his signing, in effect, is a bonus for us."
Meanwhile, Wolves legend Steve Bull is to have a 20th anniversary game in his honour. The fixture against opposition yet to be confirmed will be the centrepiece of a year of a celebrations to mark Bull joining from Albion in November 1986.
He finally hung up his boots in 1999 after making 561 appearances and scoring 306 goals.
Bull now combines working as a community ambassador for the club with his position as a patron of children's charity Promise Dreams.
The charity will be Bull's nominated partner throughout his anniversary year.
