Set the Wolves free!
This is not fair! Wolves are playing very well and should win the match against a Hammers team with few chances. But we can’t score on our chances and that is partly due to bad luck, but also to players lack of killer instinct and cool heads.
But most of all I am gutted that referee Clotenburg judged the Foley incident as a penalty. Thought it was very harsh when I first saw it and even more so when I’ve watched a re-run.
I am the first person to acknowledge the difficulties in the fast football of today for the referee to see every incident that takes place, but he was well placed on this and clearly he should have let Foley off the hook.
Wolves had a fantastic first half with Jarvis dominating the pitch as Wolves went forward. Mancienne and Jones did a beautiful job in Henrys’s absence and everything looked bright as hell with a goal after only ten minutes and more of them waiting in the hall-way.
But – as usual – we didn’t seize the momentum we had in the first half and with the ill judged penalty and a West Ham team pushing on better in the second half, we managed only a draw in the end.
But it was a perky Wolves team – but perhaps without the final edge to it – that promises much for the future.It wouldn’t surprise me at all if Wolves will upset some of the more known teams that we will face in the upcoming games.
But I’m still gutted about that penalty – and the fact that Mr Grant has the guts to claim that THEY were robbed – and will be back with the ratings when I’ve cooled off from the sentiments popping up. This was our game!
