Following Wolves decision to use the multiball system, Mick McCarthy has promised that unlike certain Premiership sideds, Wolves will not use it to gain an unfair advantage.
'My view is that you take a chance by using the system to create a high tempo when you are at home and you try to take advantage of it by getting a goal.' Mick said.
'If at some stage it becomes a disadvantage because say you have someone sent off then that's something you have to live with.'
'Sometimes when you're 1-0 or 2-0 down with a few minutes left you can't find a ball anywhere,' he says. 'Or you're a goal down and there are no balls available in the half you're attacking - to me that's not professional, it's cheating and I don't believe in it.'
Whether this courtesy will be extendd to Wanderers as they visit opposition grounds is open to debate, and ther eare certtainly one or two sides that Vital Wolves can think of who won't.
But it is still refreshing to hear a manager come out and say that gaining an advantage by fairly grey means is cheating, and something he is not prepared to sanction, come what may.
