McCarthy concentrates on final plot

McCarthy concentrates on final plot

Every best selling novel will have multiple plots that twist and turn with every page turn.

The main story will keep your intrigue going throughout, while small sub-plots will add a distraction, perhaps add some humour or even some intrigue.

This weekend, it's intrigue with Karl Henry possibly being back on the pitch with Fulham striker Bobby Zamora.

In September a tackle by Henry left Zamora with a broken leg, the tackle which had no malice, intent or bad feeling was actually a fair challenge, but it led towards a media whirlwind which stirred up a lot of controversy.

Zamora returned to action for Fulham in February and has started his last two games, scoring twice against Blackpool.

But while raking over old ground gives us something to discuss in the build up to the game, Mick McCarthy is firmly focussed on the job in hand, the main plot of this seasons blockbuster, Wolves ultimately surviving another season in the Premier League.

'I think you'll find that staying up is the bigger story with me - I'm not bothered about anything else,' McCarthy told Wolves Official Website.

He continued: 'People can always find something in any game - such as one player went to school with someone else, or so-and-so went out with someone else's girlfriend, or another player suffered a bad tackle from him or somebody got booked or sent off.

'There is always a sub-plot which the media all like, but it goes right over my head.

'None of that garbage washes with me at all.

I don't remember many fingers being pointed at Henry after the tackle- it was accepted as it was and I think the game has enough importance to both sides without tipping watery controversy on it. Mick's response proved the most sensible thing he has said for a week until today- "the outcome of the next three games will be a 'determining factor.' I hope he has managed a bit more than that when it comes to preparing the players.

I thought Henry's challenge on Zamora was ill-advised, maybe a little reckless, but certainly no malice. As I recall, he got the ball and didn't even receive a caution for it. Just an unfortunate circumstance for Bobby. Injuries happen. Hoping for a good, clean match on Saturday (and a Fulham win, of course).

I think the flak in the Autumn got to the team in general and to Henry in particular. It showed in the timid performance against Newcastle too, another match with 'previous' and, as a knock-on effect, against Everton. The extent to which the players can shake off such feelings and play full-bloodedly (but fairly) and with passion will decide our future.

how things have changed right. Villa, Blues and Albion either spent money or made a change in the manager department recognizing relegation results in horrible damage to said club. Well done for having the balls to commit to a cause and/or make decisions. I don't blame the club, our manager has wasted money the likes of Moyes would kill for and made one mistake after another. End of.
