Sir Alex Staunchly Defends Wolves

Sir Alex Staunchly Defends Wolves

If the hammering of the final nail belongs to anyone, step forward Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

As the dust finally began to show signs of settle over the 'Dirty Football' chapter that has marred Wolves image over the opening weeks of the season, Sir Alex Ferguson put the 'story' to bed once and for all yesterday during a frank yet candid interview with Inside United.

Whilst every Tom, Dick & Harry has thrown his two penny's worth at Wolves over the course of the past couple of months, the most frank analysis came from the most successful boss in British history who derided today's current crop of players 'babies.'

Ahead of the sides second fixture within a matter of nine days, the United boss defended manager Mick McCarthy and showed a soft spot for our historic club.

Referring to the wisdom of Danny Murphy, who had singled out Wolves, Stoke & Blackburn as sides sent out 'so pumped up... there is inevitably going to be problems' Sir Alex declared the insinuation an insult and insisted that of Mick and Stoke boss Tony Pulis, 'you couldn't get two more honest guys.'

Ferguson said 'Mick was an aggressive player himself and his teams play in a similar way but you don`t get punished for that. You can`t say they are any different from any team that`s come out of the Championship to survive in the Premier League. Sometimes it takes years to get to the next level of play and maintain that higher standard. I know more about Tony Pulis` team because they have been in the league longer. They have always been honest."

Fergie had harsh words for today's modern footballer saying "The players are babies now. In my day you had to hit someone with a hatchet before a referee booked you.'

We can all but hope that the dust has finally settled and that people will pay Wolves and their approach the respect it is due. Despite the unpleasant sight of the Premiership table today, and perhaps come Saturday afternoon? Wolves have shown enough already to convince that they will be far from relegation fodder come the end of the season.

Speaking to the Express & Star, perhaps after a beer, keeper Marcus Hahnemann put things into perspective by pointing out that Wolves are only three points from 8th placed Everton (the gap is 4 points) at current standing and insisted that 'If we keep playing the way we are, we will find ourselves in the top half of the table soon.'

Sir Alex for one, would relish the sight of Wolves back amongst the top clubs in English football.

Showing a soft spot for the club, he said "There`s something about it, I always felt that if someone could really get hold of the place and give it a good shaking, they could be a top club again. They certainly have the history and tradition, and it`s good to see them back in the top division.

It`s where they belong."

Last Saturday we beat Manchester City.

This Saturday we visit Manchester United.

Exciting times my friends.

It's good to be a Wolves fan after all.

Enjoy.
