Wolves will go out dignified

Wolves will go out dignified

A very likely scenario going into the weekend is come Monday morning Wolves will have been relegated from the Premier League.

We've all accepted it and in a way many of us in a strange way will be relieved once this season is over.

28-year-old Republic of Ireland international forward Kevin Doyle is one of those people.

After battling week in week out to help us survive in the top flight, Doyle has already been tipped to return to former club Reading following their promotion to the Premier League.

But before then, Doyle will continue to fight for the cause until it's mathematically impossible, but the pressure has taken its toll on the forward.

'It is hard to keep going every week for three years when you are in and out of the bottom three and looking over your shoulders and every week is a 'must-win' game,'' Doyle told Sky Sports.

He continued: 'It has been a frustrating season - it has gone beyond frustrating now with us players and the fans.

'A month ago maybe everyone was a bit more angry and bitter about the situation. It's nearly a case of 'it is what it is' and we are getting on with it, we are trying to play out the last few games with our heads held high and keep doing the right things.

'And you never know - life does crazy things. If we win four games in a row anything could happen. We want to go out dignified and keep going to the end.'

Moxey said: “If you look at West Brom, they’ve spent good money and they’re currently bottom of the league. “Maybe they’re not paying enough to their players or getting the right quality in. Stoke have spent quite a bit of money, but probably not enough. “Compare it to say Bolton, they’re spending quite a bit more money than those two clubs. Look where they are in the table. “While all these clubs have a fighting chance of staying up, if you draw up a table of the average over three years of where teams finish and then correlate that to their wage bill, they’re going to be very well aligned. “Having been there and spoken to people in the Premier League, it’s fair to say money is the be-all and end-all. So you’ve got to be competitive.”...... That was Moxey speaking in March 2009, letting us know that Wolves wouldn't find themselves in trouble due to lack of investment on player wages. What a complete load of s***e that turned out to be.

Prepare for the great escape: 35 points and survival. It's in the stars!, in the star's ken.

I have just read TC wants to continue as manager even if we go down if thats the case were going to end up in the conference. Is he kidding hes taken 2 points out of a posible 27 that is some record, he has not changes one dam thing . I said ages ago why not try a back three to stop the flood of goals and it could have worked look at Wigan doing just what i had said. They beat ARSENAL and Van Persie didnt get a kick WHILE WE JUST PLOD ALONG thank you MM AND TC for all your hard work in getting us relegated.

Wolves fans make me laugh, you all have yourselves to blame...I have not met an intelligent Wolves fan yet, all brainless. You all called for MM to be sacked and finally you got it, at the worst time in the season you finally all got your wish and on that day you were doomed to the Championship. MM was good enough to keep you in the league, that is when you have to change, not at the time you did. To make things worse you bring in Terry Connor, that is the biggest joke out of everything, how can a team survive relegation with such an emotionless, uninspiring man, have you saw his interviews? He mumbles his way through them and it seems he hasn't a clue where he actually is...It's quite hilarious to be honest. MM did not progress Wolves in his time there which was his downfall but he would of done a much better job than TC, you are all to blame.

Mick McCarthy bought rubbish players for Wolves. Why are you fighting so hard today agains City? Down you go Wolves. You didn't put a fight vs Manure but now.. Bye.

Commiserations, been in your shoes a few times ourselves, so know exactly how shy_te it feels.
22/04/2012 18:03:00
Right, P.Avfc. Those with brains among us wanted MM to save the team, having had two successful attempts before. Chances of doing it again for the third time were, at worst, even , with the team still in the thick of things as far as the position in the table went. How JM and SM were 'certain' that the team was heading for relegation just after the WBA game beats me - it was no worse than that at the same time the year before. You don't have to do it,I will exclude myself from the 'brainless', herd and heads.

Fifth can ***** was calling us a disgrace a few weeks ago cause we let Man U steamroller us. To be fair....regardless how much money City spend....they will never, NEVER be As successful as Man U. Villa.......don,t count your ain't safe yet and with that Bluenose in charge you will be down there again next season, maybe even in our position. We are Wolves and we will support our team regardless what league we are in. Take a real close look at your own Clubs before you come on here popping at ours. UP THE WOLVES!!!!!!!!
