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

Tempo was key for O'Hara

The key to the win over Blackpool was setting the pace of the game early.

When Matt Jarvis found the net inside the opening couple of minutes, I had no doubts that we would go on to take the points.

Blackpool have been a credit to themselves since their promotion to the Premier League, but one thing they don't do is stay tight, so once we had got our noses in front, I thought we would keep getting chances against them.

For Jamie O'Hara the tempo was also critical early on.

'We wanted to get at Blackpool as quickly as possible and we wanted to go forward at every possible chance.' O'Hara told Wolves Official Website..

He continued: 'I have been taught to play forward whenever I get the ball and if we can keep looking forward and pressing teams back and getting them playing in their half instead of our half it is going to work for us.'

While I had remained confident that chances would flow, we still went into half time with only a one goal lead.

The handbags from Stearman and Campbell which led to Blackpool losing a man was a massive advantage to have during the second half and goals from O'Hara and two from Ebanks-Blake meant the result was as clear cut as the match stats suggested.

Vital Wolves Comment: The game however quickly failed into insignificance following the news of Richards passing and I'd like to pass on our condolences to his family and friends.

In retrospect, if MM was only able to do one bit of business in the January window, the acquistion of O'Hara was arguably the best deal he could have done ... not that I thought so at the time. We still need a left back and a central defender but at least the current incumbents are growing into their roles. I feel sorry for Milijas, of course, but if we can't double up, O'Hara offers a more rounded game. Moreover, with a rejuvenated Edwards alongside him (I should have praised him in my report) suddenly our midfield has a lot more 'bite'. I hope Milijas rises to the challenge on Sunday, giving MM a selection headache for subsequent matches!

as a spurs fan I really rate Jamie and would hope to see him perform for us next season, but as time passes that looke less and less likely.

As a Spurs fan I regret not keeping O'Hara. He is the kind of player we are missing in our squad. It is a serious mistake by our technical staff. I rate him above Pienaar, Jenas and Palacios.

Lets hope,and I believe we have, an option to buy at the end of the season,that is of course if we remain in a Scunthorpe free enviroment.

Jees O'hara looks young in that pic!!!

He wouldn't of pulled Danielle Lloyd if he still looked like that!

We must secure O`Hara permanently at the end of the season. He is just what we have needed in the midfield since our return to the Premiership.

O Hara is young guy who p****d off spurs fans by saying the wrong things while at pompy. But he justs wants to play, and now he is showing what he can do... wether he can get a place in spurs team with VDV and Bale, Modric etc, I am not sure. But he will give your team 100% effort for sure....
