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

McCarthy delighted with crowd reaction

Wolves and Wigan went into the game knowing that despite it being November, this was a massive six-pointer.

Whether we look back on the game in May and think the same is pretty irrelevent, on Sunday, this game was huge.

A win and the side storms up the table, a defeat and we plummet to bottom of the Premier League with relgation an almost certainty.

There didn't appear to be any middle ground in the build up, so thankfully for Mick the result was a welcome one as we went on to condemn Wigan to a 3-1 defeat.

'It all looks different with one win and we knew that would be the case.' our Mick told the BBC.

He added: 'But it was much needed. We can't keep going on saying we did alright. You've got to win a game and today was the one we needed to win against Wigan.

'What pleased me most was the reaction after taking the lead and then conceding a penalty.

'It was the great togetherness of the place. The crowd were brilliant. We conceded the penalty and they got the lads going again.'

Vital Wolves Comment: With a two week break before the next Premier League game, the pressure could have really mounted on the squad if we had failed to win this game.

Thankfully we took the three points, stormed up the table to the dizzy heights of 13th and eased the growing unease around Molineux for a while.

But with difficult away trips to Everton and Chelsea, it probably will not be long until the pressure is back on.

Thankfully we did get the three points and hopefully that has eased the pressure. A result at Everton would be nice

Insert the 'be bloody' in between 'would' and 'fantastic'.

I completely agree with you mate, and to be perfectly honest. we can get points at Everton. we now need to treat every game like a cup final, and get our backsides well away from the bottom of the table!

I'm not a Wolves supporter but came across a story today that reflects on England, poppies and Fifa and one Wolves player from a bygone age. In 1938 England bowed to German protocol, under orders from the British ambassador, and gave the Nazi salute inside the Olympic Stadium in Berlin. Stan Cullis, of Wolves, refused to perform the salute, and was dropped for the match. Fifa had no problem with this. Today Fifa refuses to allow the England team to display the poppy on their shirts. God Bless Stan Cullis! A young Jackie Robinson from my club (Wednesday) played in that game. Sadly the war that all the diplomatic fawning couldn't avoid robbed players like Cullis and Robinson of their best years. Perhaps it's time for modern footballers to emulate Stan Cullis, wear the poppy or refuse to play. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/spo​rt/football/competitions/world​-cup-2010/pictures/7850872/Wor​ld-Cup-2010-classic-encounters​-between-England-and-Germany-i​n-pictures.html

Just google Germany v England 1938 and click on images. Sadly most of these photos appear to be from the Mail and the Telegraph, sorry about that. In the meantime good luck to the Wolves and Mick M.
