Nice one Howard

Nice one Howard

It had to happen sooner or later, but the manner in which referee Howard Webb contributed to Tuesdays 2-0 FA Cup win was unexpected to say the least.

First denying Birmingham a first half penalty, then passing to Andy Keogh to start off the move that led to the killer second goal may have had Wolves fans smiling, but it left Birmingham manager Alex McLeish seething after the match.

In between making excuses that was.

Feeling the pressure a little? It would certainly seem that way.

When the excuses finally fade, it might be worth remembering that Mick McCarthy fielded a side with a winger at left back, a left back as a winger, a central midfielder at right back, a mostly untried midfield two, and his third and 4th choice strikers.

Hardly his strongest side, but one that still managed to play McLeish's men off the park.

Tactically Birmingham didn't look like a side that were ready for a high tempo cup tie derby.

And they certainly didn't perform like a home side eager to book a place in the 4th round.

They were simply second best on the night. And no amount of excuses can avoid that truth.

When Wolves lose to a better side, Mick calls it as it is. No papering over cracks, he states the facts as they are.

Someday all managers will be made that way.
