Doyle fit for final showdowns

Doyle fit for final showdowns

As timing goes, this could prove perfect, with Kevin Doyle set to announce himself fit and ready for the final two games of the season.

The 27-year-old suffered knee ligament damage playing for the Republic of Ireland on 26th March.

Since then he has been sidelined which has been rather frustrating with the injury picked up while he was on International duty, but that's a different topic entirely.

Thankfully he has now returned to full training and assuming the knee holds up over the next few days, he should be ready for the final two games against Sunderland and Blackburn.

'Hopefully, I won't have any reaction. If it goes OK I should be available,' Doyle told Wolves Official Website.

He continued: 'I feel I'm naturally fit enough and would be ready if needed but the pressure won't be on this week after such a fantastic performance from the lads (against the Albion).

'If I can get through a few days training, then hopefully I've got a chance of being on the bench.'

Vital Wolves Comment: Mystic Akela predicts that Doyle will score the goal that secures our Premier League survival.

Well, Akela, if we stay up, you could undoubtedly earn a living as a fortune-teller. For most of the season we could have obtained long odds on it happening but you have always confidently told us not to worry. Doyle won't start and I hope we can succeed without him. He clearly is not 100 per cent fit, never mind match fit, and an extra week off might make the difference. However, as I have argued in a previous thread, we might need him to shore up the side as we revert to a 4-5-1 formation.

I still think 40 points will be enough!,as long as everyone plays by the rules and fields full strength sides!

MU certainly won't and that will materially affect our chances of staying up.

If MU dont field full strength side, then they should be fined - just like we were ------ I actually wrote an article about it on my Wolves blog in Slovakia and on the end I said I want to see what happens, if MU makes 10 changes in lineup....---- I doubt, that MU would be fined in such case.

I think it is fair to assume United will be resting most of their players but I doubt they will be turning up to, well rain on their own parade so to speak. Their second string can still often do the business but with theirs and others safety dependant upon the result Blackpool will obviously give it everything and if they do win and someone else is relegated the FA will be left with no choice but to fine them or face law suits themselves. Lets face it; if United break the rules the FA are there to punish them and if they dont the other clubs will start something that wont reverse any decision or final league standings and just drag on for years; it would be in the best interest of the FA to dole out one of their fines. Its an ugly topic so lets just hope we are not even part of it. I certainly hope 40 points will prove enough for anyone because whilst 4 points from these two games is not unrealistic they will not come at any ease. What a season it has been.

It amounts to only one thing, that the manager of a club has restricted powers over team selection. And, as far as PL clubs are concerned, who is to decide just which players make up the first eleven? Let us leave MU aside, let us take the Wolves. Let us say Wolves are sitting on 40 points by tomorrow evening playing with the same team that beat WBA, and for the Blackburn match, who, for argument's sake, need at least a point from that match to be sure of survival, MM decides to play Berra, SEB, Jarvis, Milijas, who have by now had their rest, and perhaps Jones and Hammill, give Hennessey a rest, or whatever reasons MM may have in the interests of both the Club and the players, whatever they be, can the other teams faced with the drop claim that this is a 'weakened' Wolves side? The manager is free to select as he sees fit, as he pleases even, and he is not obliged to give reasons. He often does... invariably does. But he is not obliged. That responsibility is his and his alone, on it he will judged by Chairman and fans alike in the end.

If our relegation rivals (bar one) win this weekend, we will have to field our strongest side against Blackburn anyway. But, if a rest works wonders, does that mean the return of the players lovesW mentions? Of one thing I am certain, Jones will not be playing as MM has ostracized him. Incidentally, if we needed three points from our last two games and tomorrow we were travelling to Old Trafford to play MU, who had to win to stay in the title race, would we field a scratch team?
