Mick McCarthy's Wolves selection against Manchester United continues to get supporters from all teams talking.
McCarthy rotated every out field player for the game against Manchester United, angering many supporters and has also resulted in a query from the Premier League.
So what are the users of Vital Wolves saying?
Adam Jones got in contact via facebook: I think he did the right thing we got a big game on Saturday that we need to win if we had put the 1st team out we would of still lost so think well done Mick.
JT_daniel posted via the article comments and said: The white flag was waved even before the whistle. Strange, seeing you had a magnificent chance to trouble a creaky United defence.
Lost_Wolf said: We would have lost whoever we played. I dare say the Spurs fans will be on here moaning any second..
Which they were via our message board, with NewportSpur writing: Well guys, on the Spurs page there is now a thread asking whether you should be fined for putting out a reserve team last night. I believe that you should not only be fined, but should be docked points too. After all, this was a Premiership tie against Manchester United FFS. If they win the league by a point, then it will be down to you and if you get relegated, then it will serve you right. Teams should never field under strength teams in the league. It devalues the whole EPL guys.
Wolf Man responded by saying: Come off it guys! Fines and points deductions? West Ham didn't even get both for the Tevez and Mascarano dealings!
Teams regularly rotate their squads around, so what if we made 10 changes from the game against your lot? That's our decision.
Every player on that pitch will feature again at some point this season.
tuscan3000 wrote via the article comments: As a United fan I'm not unbiased in this situation and I can understand your travelling fans not being happy. But what you did is absolutely no different to what EVERY team in the top four do when it comes to the champions league. With so much on the line, every club has the right to prioritise its games to benefit their own interests. If another club does the same against chelsea towards the end of the season, I wont be happy, as it'll make more difference then than now - but the managers only responsibility is towards his own club. If you beat burnley, and stay up the managers a hero.
While some chap called Akela added: tuscan, top post. Agree with all you say. I certainly do not understand the arguments from other teams supporters. For me this is more of a matter of disrespecting our own supporters.
Shropshire Spur on the forum said: in the event of last nights result due to you fielding a understrength team bearing in mind with the country still in recession i personally think that if you produce your ticket stubs to the club Mick McCarthy should all reimburse you out of his own pocket,he earns in a day what some of you guys earn in a week or even a month,you are always loyal to the club and you always take a lot of travelling fans as well, i have seen wolves supporters standing in all weathers in newport high street waiting to get the coach to take you to away fixtures ,and that is how you got treated last night, come on guys bombard the club with complaints about the team selection for last night you deserve to be treated with a bit more respect than what they did to you guys last night.
So with his selection, does McCarthy owe the Wolves fans an apology? Super Bock 1898 told us: He owes youu f@ck all other than to try and keep you up in any way he sees fit. I think a lot of people have lost touch with reality, as you most likely would have got beat whatever after the effort the players put out on Saturday. As a Pompey fan, I would take a 9-1 thumping (and we may well get one tonight in sw london) as Wigan got to win two matches on the bounce. its all about the season not one offs, and don't moan about being kept in the dark over things (like team selection) as no one can compete with us on that subject!
