That's life reflects Ståle

That's life reflects Ståle

Wolves gaffer Ståle Solbakken was in reflective mood after watching his side lose 2-1 to Huddersfield on Saturday.

It was Wolves third defeat in six away from from Molineux, with goals coming from James Vaughan and Jermaine Beckford inside the first 27 minutes pretty much sealing our fate inside the opening half hour.

Wolves didn't give up though and Sylvan Ebanks-Blake's goal on 63 minutes threatened to show us a way back into the game, but we just couldn't find another goal, even with Kevin Doyle trying his best to muster something up.

"It was a good second half performance but we had a long way to go after being punished hard in the first half.' Ståle Solbakken told Wolves Official Website.

He continued: "They scored two great goals, maybe after a lack of marking in the penalty area and some stupid ball losses, but they were all over us for the first 20 minutes.

"But after that we came back into it and it was a much better second half performance.

"We were unlucky. That was Kevin Doyle`s 4th or 5th time hitting the post this season, and he had a good shout for a penalty, but that`s life.

Vital Wolves Comment: WOW called the result a 'rare away defeat', which seemed odd considering we've lost 50% of all our games away from home this season.

I know they want to put the positive spin on things but we've now actually lost two of our last three away games if you include the 6-0 hammering away to Chelsea, if we pretend that game never happened we've still lost two in five of our last away Championship fixtures.

We are doing well and it looks like we really could put a promotion campaign together or at very least challenge for the play-offs, but just because we had previously won three on the spin, it doesn't immediately mean we rarely lose away from home, we had just found a good bit of form!

maybe you dont understand the point of putting a positive spin on things! We are doing great and hopefully we can keep it going!

I understand the idea behind putting a positive spin on things, was just highlighting how easy it is to also swing it the other way! Do we want to be bigging ourselves up at this stage of the season? It was only a few weeks ago that Solbakken was playing our performances down.

We havent romped any games, so in a league where everyone literally beats everyone, keeping fans feet firmly on the ground is imperative ... another big big game tonight ... and another opportunity for us to gauge the team's promotion credentials ... WE ARE WOLVES !

It was bad enough to watch a complacent WW team on Saturday. Now the mood has infected the manager. The defeat was not preordained and, if we had come out with the same determination as Huddersfield, we might have been celebrating a victory. And I wonder if SS uttered the words "That's Life" to the players at half time because for 15 minutes they ambled about the field in the same lethargic manner as they had done before the break. Of course, I prefer SS's more sophisticated approach to the game but we could have done with it being played at a higher tempo and with a greater sense of urgency.
