Ebanks-Blake should be fine

Ebanks-Blake should be fine

25-year-old Sylvan Ebanks-Blake came off at half-time against Everton with a hamstring injury.

The striker who has fired home seven goals this season had a scan on Monday, but he believes he shouldn't miss any action.

"Hopefully, I`ll be fit for the Fulham game - that`s what I`m working towards. Ebanks-Blake told the Express & Star.

He added: "As we haven`t got a game on Saturday, there`s no need to rush things as regards full training.

"The free weekend is something of a blessing for me, because it`s given me that extra bit of time to recover."

Vital Wolves Comment: This could be just the bit of luck we needed, losing Kevin Doyle and SEB probably would have written our final chapter in the Premier League.

I think that SEB is stronger on the ball than Fletcher and therefore would do Doyle's job more effectively. On the other hand, I read somewhere that Fletcher operated in a similar fashion at Burnley. In the air I prefer Fletcher, the taller man, and with our wingers that might be a factor (though we must play Hammill and talk sternly to Jarvis). SEB is perhaps better at scoring with the ball at his feet (I recall a dreadful miss by Fletcher against MU). I judge Fletcher to be the more skilful all-round player, though SEB has the higher work-rate. So, it's a toss-up, much depending upon the formation we play. As we must go back to a 4-5-1 set-up, that suggests the selection of SEB ... or does it?

Recall Vokes come April 21st. Just two strikers available is risking. Of course, with MM it is three.

I think we'll have to ... and he's scored a goal. He's big enough to receive balls out of defence but the question is whether it would stick to him. If he could achieve that objective and lay it off, he would be doing the job. If only it were that simple!

He was our secret weapon in the last Championship year. It was his glaring miss against MU last season that saw him sidelined after that. True, he is slippery to the ball, but he is direct when going for goal, no manoevering round and about defenders (SEB) and is at least as good as Fletch in the air. No regrets about Keogh and Iwelumo leaving, but Vokes I would have retained. I am in complete agreement with your comparision of the two strikers, still I'd say MM will go for SEB - and that he has not given up on 4-4-2 yet.

If so, you and MM will be the only two advocating it. Unfortunately, one of you has an influence on team selection that outweighs all of those who dissent from the view.

WOlves, Wigan, Backpool are the selected candidates for the drop. Can we pluck one other above us to take out place? I dont think Mick knows how, and the late injuries have given our chances a massive knock. Not sure I am prepared to handle Mick for another year. Up or down.

Blackburn, Ad Mant. The other two and you have my three tips for the drop. The May Magic may be just round the corner, and we will then be sorry for our lack of trust now. Southbank, unfortunately or otherwise, one of us has much more than an influence on team selection, and whatever the other and the rest say will be ineffectual - on your own admission, so getting behind him now is all we can do in the cause. I have questioned his ways before myself, as I do still, but dissent and calls for head will not help, though that will not unnerve him in the least, I am sure. That he is practically immune to all that will work in his, and therefore, in Wolves' favour. And though I know that I am making no friends in saying that, I know also that all will wish that events prove me right, and if events were to prove me wrong had I argued in some other way and Wolves stay up, I would be just as glad for it.

Of course, we should all get behind the team, and I pondered what I should say in my report on the Everton game (not that anyone takes any notice). However, one has to state the truth as one sees it and, much as I would have liked to bolster the players' confidence, they were awful. But, it's still small margins. Had Guedioura, Fletcher or SEB scored in the first 20 minutes, the team might have won. Conversely, one might argue that If they didn't score, they were not skilful enough and that is why ehere are where we are..

Is there a gremlin on this site, one that jumbles up a word or two? We are where we are because we lack the skill to score goals and to stop the other side scoring them: discuss.

I think we were starting to score goals in our last matches, likewise our defense was rapidly improving. But now everything seems to have fallen apart. I still fail to understand why mick built his tactics around doyle and did not train a suitable backup for his position. I hope that mick changes around the defense but i just know that he wont. So why wont he? Also does anyone know if griffiths is any good? Wud he make the first team?
