Wolves can bounce back

Wolves can bounce back

If someone asked you why Wolves are about to be relegated, could you give an answer?

The obvious one is that we haven't scored enough points to survive.

Break it down further and that's because we haven't won enough games, because we haven't scored enough goals and that we have lost to many games because we've conceded to many goals.

Football is simple, but the problems that have surrounded Wolves this season have been complex.

'There are a million and one reasons why we haven't been good enough,' Kightly told the Daily Star.

A fair and frank admission.

While it's easy to point back to the dismissal of Mick McCarthy and the embarrassing saga that followed in the initial hunt for a new manager, multiple rejections and eventual giving up. I will concede that the warning signs were still there under our Mick.

We might have still gone down with him in charge, personally I don't think we would have done, but I know others will disagree.

But one thing we will all agree on is that the problems were on show before that 5-1 defeat to West Brom, there might be greater ones now and we might stand no hope of survival, but the warning signs were always there and now the writing is on the wall. It's simply only a matter of time before relegation is confirmed.

Kightly continued: 'We're all gutted and showing fight is the least we can do. We will give it 110 per cent to the last day, even if we are mathematically not able to get out of it.'

So on to next season and back in the Championship. He concluded: 'We have shown we can do it in the Championship, We are realists. If we do go down, we can bounce back up.'

Vital Wolves Comment: Just who will remain over the summer to see us bounce back up?

A million and one reasons ? I give you two simple ones - or should that be SIMPLETONS.. Jez Moxey and Steve Morgan. We had the opportunity to hire someone at the end of last season, when Mick had shown he was out of his depth at this level ... Failing that, with us heading to the trap door, the Jan Transfer was the next opportunity for decisive action, and yet, the chuckle brothers did nothing. Then, with precious little time left, and absolutely zip anybody could do anyways, they cut the head off the tick leaving it's festering body to drain the remaining life out of the Wounded Wolf. . . To summise: Mick was out his depth and unable to fix the defense, he should have been replaced far sooner, this was the sole responsibility of Fat Jez and the Scouse idiot. 2 simple reasons for ya !
