Defeat to United - The Assessment

So we lost to Manchester United. In a cup competition that no-one unless your Man City has taken seriously, should we be bothered?

While Manchester United made 11 changes for our game. Mark Hughes made just 1, showing his sides intention to try and win the competition.

It still took them extra time to beat a Fulham side that also made eleven changes, but they are through all the same and I guess we should wish a team good luck that does actually take this competition seriously.

We on the other hand are out. Hardly gutted despite thinking we had a chance of pulling off an upset and am more pleased to see key players get some more game time under their belt.

However it was frustrating that the chance presented to us (11 changes from United, down to 10 men after half an hour) wasn't taken.

My frustration seems to be shared by some of our regular users on Vital Wolves:

Should have had more of a go at them. Big George too slow at turning, poor distribution. Milijas needs a bit more urgency, he doesn't have the time he is used to.

Hahnemann is supposed to be experienced, but has been reading the David James guide to keeping.

Foley quiet, but good to get some minutes into our players returning from injury and the newbies.

Midfield has to be Lenny, Elvis, Jarvo and Kites with Keogh and Doyle upfront at the moment.

SEB is more selfish than Doyle which I think might mean he is not as effective in the prem, but I hope I am wrong.

Good clean game, but we didn't manage to test the keeper enough.

We played very well. Still a bit flustered, but it was Old Trafford.

Impressed with Maierhofer's work rate and Doyle was a different class when he came on.

Kights took it to them too. He looked sharp for a man with no games this season.

So what was Mick McCarthy's assessment?

'My assessment was that we weren't good enough to win it - we've been sat down, patted on the head and sent on our way.' McCarthy told the BBC.

'Nice old Wolves, come up put on a show but don't upset the apple cart. It annoys me.'

Vital Wolves Comment: Mick's outspoken comments to the press have become rather entertaining this season!
