Solbakken not a man to be messed with

Solbakken not a man to be messed with

I've decided that Wolves gaffer Ståle Solbakken is not a man I'd like to mess with.

The Norwegian stands at 6ft 2in and by the looks of the Wolves dugout on Saturday, could have perhaps had a career in boxing.

His frustration took hold as Mackail-Smith found the back of the net to make it 1-1 during the first half on Saturday and the gaffer punched the roof of the Wolves dugout.

Admittedly it's only plastic, but it still takes a fairly good whack to smash a two foot wide gaping hole in it. We're not talking a few cracks and scratches here, we're talking a proper hole!

"It`s OK - it could have been worse! I have a good right hook but my left is better - I am a southpaw!

"I did it after the equaliser. But I think the hole was repaired for the second half." said Solbakken to the Express & Star.

Unfortunately while Solbakken's frustrations could be taped over, Karl Henry's couldn't as his rash and high challenge saw him receive a red card.

He continued: "Maybe that caused some frustration that led to the sending off, We shot ourselves twice in the foot because instead of going in 1-0 up we were 1-1 and down to 10 men. That gave us a mountain to climb.

The following 45 minutes saw another four goals, but unlike Leeds who collapsed to Watford after dropping down to ten men, we clung on to a point, even managing to find a late equaliser after conceding a penalty in the final minute.

He concluded: "We showed in the second half we are very well organised. We maybe got tired down to 10 men and playing with four in midfield with Sako as one of those was a bit of a gamble.
