McCarthy apology not enough

Mick McCarthy apologised to the Wolves fans after the game last night.

It was something he had never done previously in his career and it could well have been the turning point of his managerial stay at Molineux.

But after the embarrassing 5-1 defeat at home to the Baggies, Mick McCarthy apologised to the fans.

'I apologise to the fans for today's performance, I've never done it before but it was warranted because it was awful in the last half an hour.' he told Wolves Official Website.

The fact is, even the most staunch Mick McCarthy supporter, which I classed myself as, realised that if ever there was a time for a fresh approach to things mid-way through a season then after a performance like that, this was it.

The performance yesterday as I've already said was irrelevant, the result was simply not acceptable.

We deserve more than 5-1 home defeats to West Brom and if ever there was to be a knee jerk reaction to see Mick leave Molineux then it would be after yesterday.

I still cannot see how anyone else is expected to come in and do any better with the same squad and with the changes and disruption that causes, so personally I'd have stuck with Mick until the bitter end at the end of the season, if we stay up, which I think we will no matter who was in charge he stays, if we go down, he goes.

That was where I stood.

However the alarm bells did ring with the remainder of McCarthy's comments after the game.

His brutally honest analysis, unfortunately just didn't inspire that he was someone who had the fight in him to turn it around.

'The saddest part was that we capitulated and that's not something I would associate with me or my teams.' he added.

He continued: 'Whatever the fans were saying we deserve every bit of it - no problem.

'Whatever grief they were giving out to me and the players was fully justified after that performance.'

It was almost as if Mick had begun waving the white flags from the trenches and perhaps that was what cost him his job.
