A Bad Month For Wolves?

A Bad Month For Wolves?

We are now in big big trouble, Chelsea and Manchester United away, followed by Manchester City at home, United again away and an easy home game against Arsenal to round things off!

I think the coaching staff will now come under mounting pressure and the strain will start to show.

What the confidence will be like by November 13th when we play Bolton at home I shudder to think!

This problem wont have been caused by these fixtures coming up, it is the games we have lost in the last month that worry me more!

We cannot change personnel until January 1st and by then I think it may be to late. The fixtures from that Bolton game until the turn of the year look like we could pick up some points but if we play like we have played in the last month we will not fare too well I fear?

The coaching staff will no doubt come under mounting pressure in the weeks ahead and I think by the home game against Sunderland on 27th November if things are going badly it maybe time for a change?

How long should we give to get things right? Does Mr O'Neil still live in the Midlands?

So a bad month coming up, a bad month has just finished, at least we don't expect anything in the next month!

I think the questions out there that need answering are, can the current coach take us to the next level? Has just surviving a weak year in the premiership last year given us all false optimism? And playing people out of position? A good thing or a bad thing?

It is possible to get points at Old Trafford and Arsenal can be beaten, just ask a certain team that cannot be mentioned and resides not to far from Wolverhampton!! But you have to play your best team and not the reserves!!

Up the Wolves...

Having eventually sobered up from arguably my drunkest Sat all year and re-reading the diatribe i seem to have posted on every wolves blog in existence...(shudder) I can see things a little clearer now. I can do two things, a) apologise for my profanity, and b) try to justify my sentiment (hinted at in your article above) that it is time for Mick to go. Credit given for not only getting us to the prem, but also keeping us there last season. All done on meager budget and against expectation. He did us proud. That said, it was a premiership with atleast 2 teams worse than us and 1 team going belly up, a privilege we do not have this season, with even the tangerines proving they have something a little special. Now he persists either with players out of positions or just plain not up to the task... He has run out of ideas. I do honestly believe he has taken us as far as he knows how. O'Neills name has been bandied about by quite a number of fans, and if there is any chance in hell he could even be tempted Morgan should showering him with gifts and dancing girls. This club means everything to me and it pains me to see it stuttering along when we clearly have some true talent, but its not being used effectively. There is nothing we can do before January anyways, but the same old rule applies, the longer you hesitate the less time a new manager has to get to grips with the team. Hunt's return will no doubt boost our team, but its at the back where mick's failing big time, and that doesnt look like being addressed any time soon. Thanks for the memories mick. But its time to hand over to someone else.
