Last laugh for Jarvis

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy has every reason to smile after seeing his side move to top of the Cocq-Cola Championship following their 5-1 demolition of Nottingham Forest.

And he hailed their performance as being as good as he can remember.

'That first 45 minutes was as good a performance I've seen from a team of mine - or indeed any team - for a very long time.' he told the clubs official site.

The size of the winning margin was a testament to Wolves current attacking firepower, fuelled by a pair of devastating wingers in the shape of Matt Jarvis and Michael Kightly.

'I had this thought last season when I'd signed 'Jarvo' and we'd got 'Kights' that's how I wanted to play,' McCarthy said, and every Wolves fan will agree with him.

Results will always matter, but that is what we all want to see week in, week out. Fluid, fast paced, attacking play, with two wingers terrifying defenders.

On that subject, we can't leave without a mention for the hapless Luke Chambers.

Having been run ragged by Matt Jarvis all day, he then had to square up to Michael Kightly following Matt's withdrawal, having to resort to the Norman Hunter book of football in an attempt to halt Wolves frequent attacks.

Such is the mood in the Wanderers camp though, that even that raised a smile.

'Their full back went and kicked Kightly and 'Jarvo' was laughing because they couldn't get near enough to him to kick him."Mccarthy quipped.

On a more serious note, the fact that Chambers wasn't carded for that cynical off the ball boot is something that gives cause for concern.

If the only way teams are going to stop Wolves wing wonders is to kick them out of the game, then both are going to need the help of strong refereeing decisions to ensure they both stay out of the treatment room.

On Saturday, none of that was in evidence.

Grant Hegley isn't known for brandishing cards often, and in 2005 was suspended for 14 days for less than proficiently applying the Laws of the Game for failing to send off Sheffield Wednesday's Keith Gillespie.

Perhaps a similar complaint to the FA may be in order?
