Wolves make a point in more ways than one

Wolves make a point in more ways than one

When a game finishes 0-0, there is always something to still talk about, it's the beauty of football.

A contentious decision, or missed chance would usually take the focus and for Everton that may well be the case, but for Wolves it's what happened off the pitch that will be highlighted.

During the season a point against Everton would be seen as a good result, but at this stage of the year with the result irreverent, what happened on the pitch was just a side show.

The Independent are just one of numerous national newspapers to pick out some of the crowd chants during the game at Molineux yesterday.

The usual banter was in place of course, in a depressing season, it's hardly surprising to hear chants of 'Let's pretend we've scored a goal', a couple of times followed by 'Two-nil to the mighty Wolves', if you couldn't laugh, you simply wouldn't have been there yesterday, preferring to choose shopping with the misses instead.

Terry Connor might have preferred to do that as well when cries of 'Connor for Albion' went up around the ground, hopefully though he will realise it was sarcasm rather than malice.

The malice was reserved for two people in particular and neither of them were wearing Wolves kit or training tops.

Wolves owner Steve Morgan and chief executive Jez Moxey will know full well what the supporters meant when the chant of 'F*** the team and we'll build a stand' went up around Molineux, yet another dig at the perceived imbalance of investment at Wolves this season.

Building a good infrastructure and keeping the finances in shape will be great preparation for life back in the Championship and if we were just solely a business the model perhaps would be correct, but perhaps a bit more spending could have kept us in the Premier League?

Yes in 'business' it would be seen as a gamble and we will never really know the answer, but it certainly would have given us a better chance.

We are supposedly a football club first and a business second.

Rather relegation than administration, Akela. I know that I will be making no friends saying that, but I am all for financial sanity first and foremost.

If we had spent another £18.5million on transfers and associated salaries,rather than on the North Bank, we would be in exactly the same financial state we are now.The choice wasn't between solvency or administration (leaving aside the massive middle-ground between those two) it was between bricks or players.

I wonder what it's like to have a left-back, for example. I wonder if we'll ever know again...

Very good point and we argued this. Going to look pretty stupid next season with one end dwarfing the sides, and most likely half empty. It was obvious after a couple of games, if not the stupid desperate decision to give it Connor that he could not cut the mustard but they continue to insist they will wait until the end of the season to figure things out. We have had a couple of months to pick a manager and whilst I am not saying an approach was required they should have a handsome salary and plan to approach someone with a week from now. Instead they are going to slip into a second round of basically ******** around. I have absolute faith they can repeat the process and once again make the wrong decision- that I am certain of. 5 bloody wins all season. A joke, which will only become more ridiculous if Connor somehow remains at the club in any capacity. Needs a full clear out and I include Moxey in that because he has been handed far too much power in decisions he can't make. He should stick to the finances which he has obviously done well with and leave the mangers decision to the scouse**** who sat laughing through the last ten minutes of our relegation confirmation. I'd love to know why no one has asked him what he found so amusing. Let's see how funny he thinks it is next year with a depleted squad, the wrong manager and a stupid stadium he will be lucky to half fill.

Do you remember the last time we built one new stand then got relegated? We all know what happened after we built the John Ireland stand dont we? I hear Graham Turner is doing well and getting clubs promoted....Great poiny about the left back winston....I read in the E&S that most of the "average" players wont TC to stay, well of course they do, a half decent manager would move them on, mostly to lesser clubs, turkeys dont vote for xmas!

Im almost too deflated to bother writing. I completely second your post NYC Wolf, moxey and morgan are a complete laughing stock, not just amongst us fans but by their peers too. Nothing those two do would surprise me. More comedy on the way.

I've just come back from a week away in Scotland, preparing for and celebrating my older daughter's wedding in the Trossachs. No sooner do I get back when WW give me a kick in the Trossachs with the announcement that the board is interviewing TC for the post of manager. Don't the powers-that-be at the club learn from the experience of the last two seasons. I endorse NYCW's point and, as you all know, I have been banging on about WS84's point for the best part of three years. I'm in despair. If TC gets the job, it's a clear indication that the board does not put the fortunes of the team on the pitch at the top of its list of priorities.

PS: I should have written: "Haven't the powers-that-be at the club ... " I might be annoyed but that's no excuse for poor grammar.

... oh, and 'learnt' rather than 'learn'! I'm sorry but I have just driven 430 miles down from Scotland, where I have been reading glowing reports of Leigh Griffiths's performances for Hibs.
