McCarthy's Masterstroke

McCarthy's Masterstroke

Wolves gaffer Mick McCarthy's Manchester United team selection could well prove to be a master stroke.

We realise that sounds like we have done a complete U-Turn considering our views immediately following the result at Old Trafford, but we don't profess to being football geniuses. We are fans and with that we may be guilty of the odd knee jerk reaction and blatant fickleness from time to time!

But lets now have a think about McCarthy's decision, tactically it has proved 100% spot on. We lost at Old Trafford, considering we were 25/1 for a win there no matter what team we fielded we were expected to lose.

'A few of the players were disappointed they weren't playing at Manchester United.' Henry told Wolves Official Website.

He added: 'We knew it was a big decision for the gaffer, but we realise it is the best one for us and for the club.'

The 10 changes enabled some of our players to have a rest, they came back into the game and picked up the three points against Burnley. Job Done.

But there may well be some off the field benefits too. Following the defeat to Birmingham, morale amongst the players and fans was at low and some were questioning McCarthy's future.

But that now feels a long time ago, we feel closer again and we sit 12th in the Premier League table!

Henry added: 'We have to be one hundred per cent every single game and I think the gaffer realised that and recognised that we worked our socks off against Tottenham. Fair play to him and we repaid him.'

Let's not forget that Wolves were playing at home against a Burnley side that can't get points on the road for love nor money. They probably could have won with a youth team out there, while you'd have to expect them to send the reserves to Turf Moor, that place is harder to win at than Old Trafford! Still, I bet Wolves stay up, something many fans won't be able to join in with http://cli.gs/DAArZ8
