Vital Wolves: Defeat to Chelsea - The Verdict
Another game against one of the 'top four' and another four goals conceded.
Vital Wolves received a nice message ahead of the game from a Vital Football user, who goes by the name of Tambling:
'Good luck wolf men. For all our glory years, fairytale victories and huge bagloads of talent at our disposal, we're still a long way behind the achievements of the great wanderers (in terms of total league titles, and cup victories). That speaks volumes about the history, pedigree and footballing culture of this club. I personally fancy Wolverhampton.... I truely pray that you survive the drop and come back stronger, more eloquent the next year. In Mc'carthy you have an adept, committed manager who's a welcome sight from those ever-whining complaining types who eat into your inners with their constant chirping. Keep up the good work. Great times await your club. The glory years will be back.'
Unfortunately Chelsea were not quite as kind on us during the game and really tonked us.
Eight goals conceded in 180 minutes of football has seen us not only drop into the bottom three, but could see us bottom of the league this evening.
Chelsea were three goals up within 25 minutes, with a goal from Malouda and two from Essien, killing off the game early.
'I have to take positives, even though there are loads of negatives. We might have gifted them the first two goals, but we did create chances and that's a positive.' McCarthy told the BBC.
Mick went on to add: 'I know that sounds hollow and stupid when we've lost by four and it could have been more, but we gave them two goals and that's always going to make the difference.'
Depending on Portsmouth's result today, Wolves could drop to the bottom of the table: 'We are in a relegation dogfight from now on. We might as well understand that and get on with it. If we're honest we didn't expect to get anything from our last two games, but now we move on.'
