The final episode of the Exiled Robin’s series of six posts introducing you to the Championship’s newest members focuses on perhaps the most familiar of all to City fans, with regular clashes against Wolves over the past 10-15 years.

How are you feeling about playing in the Championship, a few weeks following your relegation?
Playing in the Championship doesn’t actually bother me too much. I’ve been watching Wolves since 1990 and, with the exception of four seasons in the Premier League, that time has been spent in the second tier. In some ways it’s more like a homecoming than relegation.
What does your club bring to a tight, competitive and entertaining division?
Experienced heads; players and staff who know the division inside out. We’ve since added an extra dimension with the appointment of Stale Solbakken, all eyes will be on Wolves this season as it’s a very interesting gamble.
What style of football/formation do you play?
It’s become increasingly difficult to second guess Wolves in recent years when it comes to tactics. Even in the season we won the league, our style of play was bereft of consistency – one week we’d play free-flowing football, the next it would be long ball. Towards the end of 2011-12 I remember Danny Kelly saying the biggest problem with Wolves is their lack of identity.
