'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Lets come out fighting!

Our illustrious club has taken the proverbial kicking from all angles over the last few weeks.

It all started with that game against Newcastle United, the media with no Premier League football to concentrate on due to the International break, absolutely slaughtered us for our supposed ill treatment of Joey Barton.

Referee Stuart Attwell flashed his cards about for that game, awarding Newcastle with five and Wolves with seven.

The following match, with the media's focus firmly set on our 'discipline' saw us pick up another 6 yellow cards and a red card against Fulham.

The same match saw the unfortunate leg break for Bobby Zamora after a challenge from Karl Henry.

The flurry of cards saw Wolves fined and branded by some as a disgrace to the Premier League.

The next three matches saw Wolves pick up just five yellow cards in total, while Aston Villa's Steve Sidwell broke Adlene Guedioura's leg.

This incident infuriated myself and other Wolves fans, not necessarily for the challenge but for the way it was portrayed in the media.

The ill treatment of Joey Barton was given its own segment on Match of the Day, the Zamora tackle from Henry was shown multiple times, but Sidwell's challenge on Guedioura, wasn't even mentioned.

To rub salt into the wounds, Karl Henry gets sent off for a rash tackle against Wigan, the other guy isn't injured, but Henry he dubbed a thug and once again Wolves disciplinary record is up for discussion again!!

The international break came once again at the wrong moment, as the time off gave the media more time to discuss things.

Even Danny Murphy came out and attacked various clubs and managers for their tactics. But finally we can return to football!

'It's a huge game for us and everybody knows that,' Our Mick told the Wolves Official Website.

He continued: 'The club has taken a bit of a bashing over the last few weeks and we all get sensitive about that and don't think we deserve it.

'The only way to come out of it though is for all of us to stick together as a club - players, management, staff and fans.'
