Ward - Not my Favourite

Ward - Not my Favourite

Simple observation, since Mick has gone, MM's favourite is also TC's favourite.

Can someone please explain to me why Stephen Ward continues to play left back for Wolverhampton Wanderers??

My self, and every one with at least one eye can see this fellow is like a fish out of water.

I supported Mick, and believe he gave his best to the club I have supported for over 50 years, that said, he never addressed the left full back position, and every opponent since has benefited from that.

Shipping goals, on a regular basis, which in turn led to his dismissal as manager.

So hoping a new manager with no favourites would come in, and see that we all have seen, that would be rectified.

That did not happen, instead we got long serving, friend of the players Terry Connor as manager.

And just like Mick, he has changed nothing. And, made Stephen Ward team captain.

This action alone tells me that Both MM and TC are not capable of making the right decision's involving Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Its very frustrating to watch your team disintegrate in front of you, players like Doyle, Foley and now even Fletcher look so uninterested, check out the body language.

Only Javis and Davis looked like they want to wear the shirt.

Its going to be a rough ride till May, but then we can rebuild...UTW.

Not mine either, but not a bad as numerous other choices. Many have reservations about Berra but why has he been the one dropped? We can add him to the list leaving when the sorry season is over, which personally I think is a shame as he would have done a very good job for us in the Championship. Three points behind Rangers now with a goal difference almost twice as bad. A Norwich win will push them very close to the safety mark, they will want to get that wrapped up as quickly as possible and what better opportunity than the weekend.

A week ago I was as mad as Ive ever been at the state of our club and I wondered why that was when we'd been in much worse condition before ? I think after narrowly surviving last season, I assumed a lesson had been learned… the secured premiership funding would put us in the perfect position to make the next step up. Shore up the defence, bring in a striker or two and we could surely make a stab for mid table? 6 months on, the team has collapsed, manager gone, owners clueless, the club's a farce and we are odds on to finish stone last … instead of progress we have managed to steal defeat from the jaws of victory. Lies and condescending, patronising treatment from the goons at the top added insult to injury and I became one seriously unhappy yam yam. A sabbatical was needed, and a gap from the relentless tide of bad news, and never-ending arguing online was just the shot in the arm needed to gain a little perspective. Perspective is a wonderful thing, if elusive at times, and as I trundled back from the United game I was so proud to be a Wolves fan, the voice and spirit of the crowd was one f the best Ive ever experienced. The young kid in front of me screaming out "Wanderers we love you" reminded me too of the time aspect, that in 5 years, 15 years, 50 years I will still be a Wolves fan, the farce of the last 6 months will be well behind me, and I will have a myriad of memories of supporting my beloved WOlves under my belt. Add to this, the pledges by the Wolves faithful to make the Mol the loudest place for our remianing Prem games, to keep the atmosphere going and in spite of the comedic past few months most have still renewed their STs, their allegiance is to the club not the management, or the league we are in... Clown Morgan and Fat Moxey don't deserve support like this, but they will disappear soon enough, I dare say we don't need the Scousers money anyways, surely we've earned enough in the 3 premiership years, and certainly not splurged much on players to be able to go it without a wealthy backer..? I don't know, but right now I'd rather not have them anywhere near our club... And, though I still don't think Much of Mick as Prem manager... oh how we could do with him next season.. i also applaud him for holding the ship together as long as he did with Stan and Laurel in charge, I wish him well in his future prospects. ***** the football, build a stand... We are Wolves! PS, as for the actual topic, leave Wardy out of it...! He's one of the very few players in Gold that can hold his head high this season, and we will desperately need his commitment and effort next season.

Does Wardy put in the effort, do his best and have glimmers of something good? Yes. Is he, was he or will he ever be a left-back? From day one an unresounding NO. Hodgson made a mockery of the fact as with others by focusing pacey attacks down that flank. A sad case of square peg in round hole and nobody's fault but the bloke picking the team. Simply can't blame a player for being played in the wrong position.

As a left back, Ward's best moments involve interplay with Jarvis down the flank, often running on to a through ball to the by-line.The subsequent cross is usually better weighted than the ones MJ puts over. While overlapping full-backs have long been a feature of the game, this illustration of Ward's strengths (and an awareness of his defensive limitations) indicates that his best position is further up the field.
