Conceding so quickly was criminal says Connor

Conceding so quickly was criminal says Connor

Many Wolves fans would have said that the performances over the past couple of months were all criminal.

It's no longer a shock that we start another working week with yet another defeat at the weekend.

It's become expected, the only question has been how many we would actually lose by and considering we've lost 7 out of our last 9 games, conceding 28 goals (15 coming against West Brom, Fulham and Manchester United), that's a fair assumption.

This week, we lost by one an improvement in some respects? But after previously leading a conceding an equaliser within seconds of taking the lead, this is what is actually deemed as criminal.

'I felt we were worth something from today's game. A point would have been a fair result. We got our noses in front and we should have kept the lead for longer. Regarding the penalty, I don't think it was an intentional handball.' Connor told the BBC on Saturday evening.

He continued: 'What we did just wasn't good enough. Having got in front, that's the bit you work hard for. To concede so early after scoring is criminal.

'Our position is not impossible. If we have eight more quality efforts then we won't be far short.'

Vital Wolves Comment: We won't be far short? Short still isn't good enough is it???? The end result would be that we've still been relegated, so I'm not really interested in not be far short, it needs to be turned around.

At one point we were in the mix, three teams from five cut adrift at the bottom battling to survive, now we're bottom of the league and adrift of everyone else.

Even a win next time out and defeats for everyone else will still leave us bottom, we're now playing catch-up, four points from safetly.

There is a lot that is 'criminal' at WW over the last few months and the rottenness is not confined to the pitch.

The more you see his tactics and the more you hear his feeble, meek excuses the more you realise he is not, and probably never will be a football manager. The odds are well on for him to LOSE EVERY football game he's managed bar one opening draw. TC is not a manager, he is backroom staff at best. Bereft of ideas we plummet into the championship, the only happy faces being those of the people who fill in the exel spreadsheets... massive premiership income, and almost zero outlay - what a good bit of business !

I'm afraid T Cs talking rubbish.This team couldn't do it for the guy that brought them to the club,and they're certainly not doing it for his No.2.Any pride and passion they may have shown in the past has (apart from a few fleeting glimpses) evaporated,leaving them looking increasingly demoralised and in this situation it's difficult to see where the next points are coming from.

The next points are coming against Championship competition, corbo. How these goons turn up and collect £20K plus a week with a straight face is beyond me.

What they are AdMant is not as good as their agents like to think they are.I'm also getting p****d off keep seeing the picture(above right) of a smiling Craddock & Guedioura.At least those two showed a bit of fight.........Happy days.

i would respect TC more if he just came out and said " We're *****ed". Joke. Seriously....I don't see us winning another game this season. The only things TC will be doing for the rest of this season is set some very unwelcome records that will make his CV look about as desirable as Saddam and Osama.
