Vital Wolves: Win over Spurs - The Verdict

Kevin Doyle scored the winner inside the opening three minutes for Wolves against Tottenham at White Hart Lane on Saturday.

Very few Wolves fans would have expected us to return with the points, but that was exactly what we did and while Spurs may have dominated the game if you study the statistics. As Wolves gaffer Mick McCarthy pointed out after the game, they offered little in the way of real chances: 'Marcus Hahnemann's not been diving around making saves everywhere. I expect my keeper to have to make saves when we go to Spurs.' McCarthy told the BBC.

McCarthy continued to add: 'Possession and passes and switching play - really good stuff at times from Spurs but Marcus made one really good save and no, we haven't been mullered.'

You certainly knew how to contain us and keep us quiet, we hardly made any chances at all in comparison to recent weeks! Well done you's.

I'm in no way bitter and I like Wolves and hope you stay up. I would however dissagree with Paddypower and the other "humble" Spurs fans on here who suggest that it wasn't a fluke result, because it was. I'm not sure why spurs fans, E17YID, are saying you "played us off the park"? Can anyone genuinely agree with that comment? You defended very well, far play to that. But had you not got such a soft early goal I would like to think you wouldn't have sat back in the manner that you did and our class would have had more room to breath. Grantd though, breaking teams down would "park the bus" is something we've got to work on as we've dropped too many points so far this season in that manner. Stoke being the other game that comes to mind.

refereesfavourbig4, I disagree with your comment. Yes it erks me when teams employ these sort of tactics against us but in fairness that isn't Wolves usual style and they don't deserve to be relegated because of it. They came to WHL expecting to come under pressure and having got a some what unexpected early goal they proceeded to protect it. Its teams like Stoke, Bolton and even Everton that play that way no matter who the oponents that deserve to be relegated.

you spurs fans are a right bunch of moaning minnies! You lot never defended a one goal lead to win a match before? Oh no wait, your throw away two goal leads instead don't you?

Lol Lost Wolf, good burn but you just proved the point. We don't sit back and try and defend leads. We play attacking football. Granted we come unstuck because of it at times but I'd rather that than the alternitive.
