Cort : Home Form Baffling

Cort : Home Form Baffling

Pre season, Glenn Hoddle said home form was going to be key to Wolves promotion campaign.

It certainly has been. But not in the way he envisaged.

Poor performances, lack of goals, and an inability to break down defensively minded teams has seen them win only eight home game, scoring a pitiful one goal a match.

None of which is lost on the players. Carl Cort being the latest to express his bemusement regarding Wolves lack of Molineux

agic.

'There seems to be a problem with us playing at home because we're not picking up the results we should be,' said Cort. 'The stats show that our home performances aren't good enough, so why are we performing better away from home than at home?' he said to The Birmingham Post.

'It could be psychological, and we know the fans do get on our backs, sometimes very early on in the game if we haven't started the way they would like us to.'

The Molineux crowd's reactions have long been cited as a massive plus, or a huge negative, depending on the atmoshpere created. Away fans know it, visiting teams know it, and Carl Cort knows it. What he isn't sure of, is if Wolves fans themselves really appreciate the part they play on a Saturday afternoon.



We'd seen on Sheffield Wednesday's website how they said our crowd could be their 12th man and sometimes I don't think our fans realise how much of an influence they can be.

'Some players deal with the situation better than others - I'm probably one of the more experienced players so I wouldn't say the fans affect me. Their expectations were this season that we would go up as champions and that hasn't happened.'



There will be some already wringing their hands at Carl's words, interpreting them as an accusation that Wolves home form is the fans' fault. But he is at pains to point out that this int the case, adding :

'We've only got ourselves to blame. The table doesn't lie and we are now trying to push for the play-offs and we need the fans backing us and behind us.'

There are six games to go, 540 minutes to get behind the team, and roar them on.

Can the Wanderers faithful put their disgruntlments behind them, and lose the tag of the oppositions twelfth man?
