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

Players let Mick down

While the recent results have not been great and the 5-1 defeat to West Brom was rather embarrassing, the finger of blame will always be pointed.

And it is often pointed at the manager, after all, he is the man in charge, he is where the buck stops.

But it's players that win and lose games and while this squad was assembled by the manager and they're playing to his instructions, at times a manager can only stand there helpless to what is going on in front of him.

Towards the end of the West Brom game, that was Mick McCarthy, he could do no more and he had to painfully stand there and watch the side crumble to an unacceptable hammering by the Baggies.

"How much blame should we (the players) take? All of it.' skipper Roger Johnson told Sky Sports News. 'The manager can maybe take five to 10 per cent.'

'The rest of it is down to the lads. We have let Mick down, the club down and ourselves down.'

The club now moves into a period of uncertainty. No manager, no vision, no ideas of where to take the club.

The new boss will come in with the sole purpose of saving us from the drop, a longer term vision right now goes on hold, because if however comes in fails to keep us in the Premier League, they're likely to be gone before the start of the new season.

Johnson continues: "Thankfully we have got enough games to get enough points to get out of trouble. We probably need six wins from 13 games and we have a good enough team to do that."

Vital Wolves Comment: I think Johnson is over playing the position we are in. 6 wins over 13 games is a tough ask for a side that has only assembled 5 wins in 25 games.

We are only in the drop zone by a goal difference of two, the bottom five separated by 2 points.

That's the scrap we are looking at, a mini league, cut adrift at the bottom of the Premier League.

The games that matter are Blackburn at home March 10, Bolton at home March 31 and Wigan away on the final day of the season.

Win those games and that would go a long way to saving our Premier League status.

RIGHT, so the biggest most expensive flop ever in a Wolves top is gobbing off again... this time, highlighting the fact that the players were to blame. Wow, talk about lumping everyone in with your own incompetence... I think Jarvis, Fletcher, Hammil, Doyle, OHara Ward, and of course the Mighty Mighty Wayne Hennessey have all had pretty impressive seasons... the problem, if it is 90% players' fault lies with the following Roger Johnson, Richard Stearman, Karl Henry, Nenad Milijas, Elokobi, Zubar and Hunt... Sell those 8 and get us Frimpongs left leg... would be a vast improvement...

Agreed......I laughed when I heard RJ's , sadly lacking in sincerity, waffle. He must have cost us at least 10 points this season on his own......*****er.
