Vital Wolves: Defeat to Arsenal - The Verdict

Vital Wolves: Defeat to Arsenal - The Verdict

Wolves were well beaten by Arsenal on Saturday night.

We were 4-0 down before Jody Craddock got his third goal in two games!

While all the pre-match talk was suggesting we had a chance of picking up a result, no one was really surprised we lost. But at least we gave it a go in a match that we had nothing to lose from.

'Our season won't be judged by games against Arsenal. We have Birmingham coming up and that is the type of game we have to win.' McCarthy told the BBC.

So rather than worrying about Arsenal, Mick would prefer us to be judged against the bottom sides: 'Hull, West Ham and Portsmouth are the teams in and around us and matches with them will be important.

So with that in mind he remained in philosophical mood after the match adding: 'We have been ticking along but were well beaten in the end. We were outstanding for 30 minutes and took Arsenal on but mistakes have cost us.

'But I know the crowd appreciate the hard work the team put in and the way they tried to play.'

Fans on Vital Wolves remained philosophical too, with moderator Wolf Man saying: If we`d played a deeper 5 man midfield I think we may have had a chance of restricting them.

There is a reason why hardly anyone plays 2 men up front against Arsenal.

While OldGold responded: I agree Wolf Man, but I still think we would have lost. No shame in admitting that they are a better team.

Vital Wolves Comment: I wonder if we will adopt a different tact going into the away game with Chelsea? Rather than bigging up our chances, perhaps we should quietly get on with the job at hand and see what we come out with?
