Wrong Management By Mick McCarthy!
I’m just back from the game and I’m not happy, of course. A goal in the back in the 95th does not give you the ‘jitters’.
People may say that Wolves didn’t deserve a point from this game as it did unfold. I agree. But the way it was played out it is still a very hard loss to take and a very hard match to lose – especially the way it happened.
Karl Henry – our captain and midfielder – was sent off – but I don’t think that was fair. A yellow had been O-K. But a read? No way!
People might say that Wolves were about to lose the game anyway. And they might be right – but we had the right to try, the right to show our cards – but we did not get the chance to do it.
Arsenal had the best team. It’s no question about it. They were the best on the pitch – I totally agree. But please, referees – let us play about it. Let us do our thing. But no.
I had hopes that Mick McCarthy would put Guédioura on as Henry got the red. In fact – I thought that would be a certain. Instead he brought in Keogh for Doyle and Edwards for Jones. Both of them were in need of Premier League tempo. And it was obvious that they did not have it.
It was for all to see, really. As it was for all to see when Mick brought in other players too early this season – Ebanks-Blake is one example. This is a clear management error! Why Oh Why did he not bring in Guédioura instead of Edwards and Vokes instead of Keogh. These changes could have decided the game and our manager blew it! Mick has done many decisions that were right, but these were not. End of.
But in the end I did not expect us to get anything out of this. And I am really content that Burnley and Hull stayed at zero points in their games as well. If West Ham will get nothing tomorrow – as I’m sure they will – we will in fact be better off than before this weekend. And we sure will prevail.
Finally. As all is said an done – Wolves has shown yet again to be the teamof our dreams. We did stand the distance for over the 90 against one of the best sides in the world at their home soil and we were very close to get a point. That’s not too bad. And if we have the blues today, I’m sure we will win tomorrow.
I’ll have a beer and just fade away – in waiting for the next game – we are a good team!
WE ARE WOLVES!!!
