McCarthy disappointment

McCarthy disappointment

It was a case of a too little too late for Wolves as we battled back in vein against Manchester City.

We dominated the opening period of the game and took the lead through Nenad Milijaš, we should have gone on to add to that lead and that's probably what cost us in the end as Manchester City answered with four from Kolo Toure, Carlos Tevez (twice) and Yaya Toure.

Kevin Doyle from the penalty spot and Ronald Zubar made it nervy few minutes for City, but in the end they took the three points to go top of the Premier League.

'I think we deserved a point from the game,' McCarthy told Wolves Official Website.

He continued: 'We're sat in there disappointed to have come away with nothing.

'I know at 4-1 when the game had opened up everyone expected it to be all over but we silenced a few in the crowd by bringing it back to 4-3.

'I was getting a load of grief from behind me when it was 4-1 but I thought everyone had left when it got back to 4-3.

Vital Wolves Comment: Another one of those games that the pundits praise us for but ultimately we gained nothing.

If there was ever such a thing as a confidence boosting defeat, you can add this one to the list.

Guys, you gave us a great game and I'm sure all City fans will be wanting you to stay up. You probably did deserve something for not trying to lock up at 1-0. Here's hoping that Everton drop into the dreaded bottom 3 and Wolves get out!

It has been said many times before this season that we played well and should have got something from the game,what we must also remember is that the other clubs around us are also doing well against the so called 'top clubs'for example Blackpool.Our destiny will ultimately depend on the performances against the 'lower end sides' and to say the least we will need a huge turnaround in form against these sides.Of all the teams 10th and below we have only beaten two,one away and one at home.We also have to play 6 of these teams at home and only 3 of them away before the end of the season,these home matches must be targeted and won!its a simple as that,six wins equals 18 points added to our 21 makes 39 which should be enough,It starts against King Kenny next week lets hope we can do it!.UTW.

Thanks for that PedMachine- appreciated. Kicked off ten in the morning here so my neighbors must have thought there was a big row going on, "get in you effing something or other" I text my cousin its a case of how many when the 4th went in, but I'm proud of the performance- I was angry with the defending for the Tevez goal but looking back he was moving so quick any kind of contact would have proven a penalty and card. Cracking goal. Absolutely spot on Crete with regards the points tally. We've been saying all season a point a game 'should' be enough and the proof is in the pudding- when we beat Chelsea we hit the ratio and moved out the bottom 3- with 21 from 22 we are back in the bottom 3 and I think the trend will continue until the end of the season- results have gone our way today so no one has pulled away. Beat Liverpool next week, we will be two points behind them with 24 points from 23 games and we really do need to beat them with Arsenal and Manchester United coming up- 4 wins from the last 8 now, the pattern is set in black and white and I do think we will beat Liverpool. What will make or break our season as you say will of course be against those around us. Our record against them this season is not good and it's plain and simple that we must take our standards against the top dogs into those games. Birmingham, Wigan and Fulham are now on 10, 10, and 11 draws- if they continue with that return, and we continue with ours-based on the last 8 games we will finish above all 3 of them, and there is your 3rd season in the Premier. Villa & Blues away have draw written all over them. Liverpool, Everton, Tottenham, Fulham, Blackpool & Blackburn at home- how many of those games can/will we win? If we won 4 from 6 that's still only another 12 points to add. The other away games, the likes of Albion, Stoke, Sunderland & Bolton, I don't fancy us taking too many points from- so far I have us knocking around 35/36 points but based on the season we may as well throw our predictions in the bin, sit back and see what happens.

The level of my disappointment after yesterday's game is an indication that some spindly green shoots of hope are beginning to poke up through the permafrost of my despair. If only we play every match as we did for the first half-hour of yesterday's game (putting away our chances, of course) we can win against anyone. Looking at the projections of Crete Wolf and NYCW, we can do it, even win points against MU and Arsenal. The 20 minute aberration yesterday remains as the ugly, unwanted guest, however.
