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

Support for McCarthy

Mick McCarthy has spoken out about why it is best to not speak out.

The Wolves gaffer was discussing the reasons why Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey or owner Steve Morgan do not come out to the press to give McCarthy a public vote of confidence. When supporters are beginning to question Mick's role at Molineux.

"Throughout my five years here, I`ve never needed someone to ring me up and say 'keep going, you`re doing alright`.

"I`ve never had it, and the reason why Steve and Jez don`t do it is because we`d get headlines in the newspaper saying 'support for McCarthy`. Mick told the Express & Star.

Ironically in saying what he has, he has actually revealed that there is 'support for McCarthy' as the relationship he has with the boardroom has not changed despite the poor run of results and he's still backed by Moxey and Morgan.

Predictably though, five straight defeats have made the Wolves fanbase anxious and the McCarthy out bandwagon that fires up around this time of year, every year has got going.



A win this weekend is a must, otherwise it could all begin to start feeling rather uncomfortable.

Vital Wolves Comment: I'm beginning to forget what it was like to go through the winter months without a debate on whether the manager should be sacked!

The first time we asked the question on Vital Wolves was 6 Jan 2008, we had the same debate in 2010 and we're having the same debate in 2011.

I'm sure we'll be ok as long as we cut out the mistakes.

I'm sure that i have seen that somewhere else. However the knives have always been out for Mick, there are those that really don't like him. However he really does need to get them playing, the fight doesn't seem to be there!!

I support him when he does well, as I did at the beginning of the season, words of caution notwithstanding. However, as he has to take his share of the blame if things go wrong, he should expect fans to be critical. Of course, it's no good anyone pointing out the obvious mistakes to him because he will bloody-mindedly repeat them just to show us 'numpties' who's in charge.

BIG TASTY
7 points from 8 games smells like relegation. Are there teams worse off than us? Well, the table would suggest but two things. 1- If they keep their respective managers I do not see either Wigan or Sunderland finishing where they are. 2- If things do not improve both will make a change of manager, regardless of the loyalty shown to the cause. When it's not working, people make changes. We won't- that's my greatest fear; the fact that Mick was assured he had a job whether we stayed up or went down. What's changed? Nothing. If the club were so keen to keep him then, why would that have a change of heart now. There is a bond between the three that says there will not be changes. Thousands of people own this club, one of whom is Steve Morgan. Mick has hardly done himself any favors with his comments today. I think he has great pride and he does have a passion for this club. I think he took us as far as he could by keeping us up the first season. We have spent a lot of money and we are still stumbling backwards. This is his job- he will get another. He takes teams up, he kept Wolves up, twice. His win ratio in the PL is a joke. We as Wolves fans will always be Wolves fans whether we can be there for every game or not. I believe Morgan when he said he gave up his Liverpool blood and fell in love with Wolves. The dissent is growing by the day. How many of us would sit by idly watching the demise of our club for the sake of misplaced loyalty. Few. There will come a point when the owner wakes up and realizes that if this dream he has for our club is to unfold then tough decisions must be made. Mick will not be forgotten for playing an instrumental role in bringing us back to where we are- nice house you built there Mr. Builder but it needs a roof. Oh, I can't build a roof. Oh, alright, let's just let the rain ***** all over what was once a great foundation.

It's true that the three M's have a close relationship, but I really do not believe that mr Morgan will sit by and watch us struggle without doing anything. Mick does seem to be floundering and this is a big worry for me. I am a Mick fan, but unless something drastic happens I think that his time is running out!! So much for my optimism at the begining of the season!
supersparkes
Precisely my sentiments, Yorkie. I, too, am grateful for all that MM has done for the club, especially when one compares his tenure with that of his predecessor, Glenn Hoddle. And I am sure that he has the best interests of the club at heart. The problem not only lies in his inability to take us any further but also in his failure to recognize the fact. Coupled with a refusal to listen to reason and to learn from his mistakes, he can only damage the club's fortunes. I hope he confounds his critics and somehow discovers a source of inspiration and tactical flair. I doubt it. Miracles do not often happen, especially twice in the same location ... and, given the form of Stephen Ward, we have had our share of stardust.
