Sacking Mick proved to be wrong call

Sacking Mick proved to be wrong call

It's a point I've tried not to make too often on Vital Wolves.

My position regarding Mick McCarthy was well known before his departure and following it.

I didn't agree with the decision and I thought we would have stayed up with him if he had stayed.

Our Mick always polarised the fans views, but with the benefit of hindsight even some of those who did want him to go following the West Brom defeat have admitted to changing their minds after watching on with horror as the search for a new manager became farcical and then watched us lose game after game under Terry Connor.

Now it's the turn of players to admit the same thing with Stephen Hunt talking to Irish television about what has been happening at Molineux.

"We were all playing for the manager (McCarthy) so first of all, it was disappointing for the gaffer. In terms of results, the board thought it was time for a change' Hunt told RTE.

He added: 'Little did we know we would end up losing a lot of games since we`ve sacked him so it has probably proved to be the wrong decision in the end."

He continued: "In terms of when he (Connor) took over, we thought 'oh, it`s not going to change` to a certain degree, that it would be the same as under the old manager, but to be fair he has come in and stamped his authority and changed things around. Maybe he has even made the players a bit happier in terms of what he has done for us.

'But maybe it was better sticking with Mick, but in fairness to TC, he is good to play for and we will all play for him to the bitter end.'

Vital Wolves Comment: If only we could turn back time and do it all again.

This will now forever be the problem Akela,the decision to sack MM was the right one,no question, what the problem was and still is was the timing of it.He will always be able to turn around and say that he did not take Wolves down,he should have remained until seasons end and at least then people could have said that he was given enough opportunity,as we would still be in the same boat as we are now!.He was out of his depth 'tactical wise' last year and was given the chance to correct the problems and failed to do so,it was not by skill that we avoided the drop last year but luck. Now will be the chance for someone new to come in and start off fresh with their own backroom team,I think that lessons will have been learned and an appointment will be made very soon after seasons end.

Spot on, Crete Wolf. I only hope that the lessons have been FULLY learnt. I am still zonked out after a few days away (seeing the Arsenal game was not a good start) but hope to have recovered by the weekend and a view of MC.Why can't we play like Wigan? Well, we did the same sort of thing last year and that kept us up. It's a measure of our decline that we have lost that edge and fighting spirit. What happened to disrupt the camaraderie in the dressing-room, never mind the woeful tactics on the pitch?

Martinez el mago. He definitely has found the magic at just the right time, it seems.
