'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Next two games could prove crucial

Poor in the first half and lacking any kind of bite in the second half, the official stats read that Wolves mustered just one shot on target throughout the entire 90 minutes against Leeds.

There was little to suggest that we will be battling for an immediate return to the Premier League judging us on this performance.

Thankfully though we've only had one game and only a moron would write us off just yet, but it's clear that there is a lot of hard work that needs to be done to get these boys in the promotion picture.

The man entrusted with that task is new gaffer Ståle Solbakken who believes that much of the side are still suffering from our Premier League relegation hangover (that's metaphorical so not referring to Johnson individually).

'The only way you can change it [the mentality] is to win that first game and get that winning feeling.' Ståle Solbakken told the BBC after the game.

He continued: 'You can say that you can work hard blah, blah, blah, but you have to win that first game. Today was a fair result, there were not many chances in the game. Leeds protected their penalty area well when they went in front. I have no complaints.

'We are trying to find a winning formula. The team lost many games last season, maybe one win in 26 or 27. But now we have two home games and maybe we can get it then.'

Those two games are against Barnsley tomorrow and Derby on Saturday.

If we need to find that winning mentality quickly then we should be looking for those first three points at Molineux and should certainly end the week undefeated.

Can't fault the new guys, infact I'd say they are an improvement on what we have. The big concern is that defence. Playing a high line is fine but you need pacey Defenders to deal with the breaks. None of our defenders are pacey. RJ is so slow he breaks the line to try and track back which was our downfall on Saturday because he played the Leeds player onside. Stearman was miles off and Ward left Becchio unmarked to tap in. We need pace and intelligence at the back urgently.

we need a defence urgently. i can honestly say with those 4 at the back we will struggle to win a single game even in the champs. lets hope Stale has some recruits lined up.

I agree ... I say, I agree with the above comments!

Interesting that he pushed Henry to the back when he took off Stearman. Dare I say that Karl may be more useful as a defender than midfielder. He certainly has more pace than any of them and has a better defensive-minded brain (as was testament to some of his tracking back as Leeds midfielders were breaking into the box). Just a thought. Second thought (my mum warned me about thinking too much), i've always maintained that Hunt would be an excellent Left-back based on his doggedness and energy. Worth a try i think, can't be any worse than those in our current back line. - UTW!!
BIG TASTY
I love you thinking BIG TASTY, surely that would have been tried in training but it must of been really bad.

Its the same as last season dont know when to shoot at goal and defence is ******** none existant.Where was Ward playing with him self when Leeds scored i hope SS has some defenders in mined to buy if not were screwed .

Akela, if you take the money accrued in the prem for telly rights, the parachute payments we will now receive, and the fact we only made 3 notable signings in our THREE years in the prem (Doyle, Fletch, Johnson) then the big question must be - WHERE THE FECK HAS ALL THE MONEY GONE ???? This is BEFORE we even consider the monies from Geddy, Hammil, Devries Fletch Jarvis and **ghtly

We won a game!
