It's a sign of how far we have come says Stearman

It's a sign of how far we have come says Stearman

Richard Stearman wasn't going to be taking any negatives from the game against Spurs.

The Wolves man had put in a solid shift and was many peoples pick for man of the match.

'Losing 2-0 is not the result we wanted but all we can do is take the positives from the game,' said Stearman to Wolves Official Website after the game.

He added: 'It shows how far we've come that we're so disappointed to lose against a team which was in the Champions League last season.'

Wolves held out for the best part of 70 minutes but eventually were undone first by Emmanuel Adebayor and then by Jermain Defoe.

Vital Wolves Comment: It of course means the unbeaten run is over, which is a shame but was never realistically going to last anyway!

I agree with Stearman that we have improved since the end of the last season ... and no-one has made more progress than he has. However, as MM reminded us after the match, we do not want to be remembered as plucky losers. We want to win such games, especially when we create enough chances to do so. On Saturday, perhaps we lacked a certain amount of self-belief and did not take decisive enough action. I noted a number of occasions when good approach work came to nought because of dithering, a misaimed or mistimed pass, lack of vision or movement off the ball, or poor control. Henry's run and shot indicates what is possible. We can do it: let's go for it (without being daft, of course).

I am sure that the belief will come with more games, the International break did us now favours, the big test will come this weekend against one of the new teams. We need to be beating them well. I really can see us beating all three teams home and away this season, and we really do need to!

I hope so, supersparkes. I viewed the QPR -v- NU match last night and QPR looked a decent team, one that will improve as the new players gell. Regarding the International break, it did us no favours as a a team but individual players benefited from having games to hone their skills and sharpen up. Watching Fletcher's lacklustre performance on Saturday, I thought that a run-out in the Scottish team would have done him good.

I just hate the international break at this time in the season, teams need to be together! But you are probably right, aparently though according to the B&S Fletcher could be a doubt for Saturday. I agree that QPR wern't bad, but NU sat back and let them play. Windy night in London I think that they went for the point.

Seeing as how you mentioned him,SB,my mind on Fletch is far from made up.Like a lot of people, I thought the fee paid for him was extraordinarily high.Last season,of course,injury interrupted.This season, hopefully, we'll get to see a whole lot more of him.
