High Five

High Five

It's not a bad weekend when you can lose one, win one, and manage to rise two places in the most competitive division in English football.

Having lost to league leaders Sunderland on the road, Wolves showed the kind of spine lacking under Glenn Hoddle to pulverise relegation threatened Hull City thanks to goals from Jay Bothroyd and Seyi Olofinjana.

The only blip in that match coming courtesy of a Gary Breen mistake which let in Nicky Forster for Hull's consolation goal.

The words Gary Breen and mistake are now becoming inextricably linked, as are the words Mick McCarthy and blind faith.

The weekend saw the return of Jody Craddock to he side, and oh how hearts were lifted by that news.

Then came the realistaion it was at the expense of Neill Collins which would tend to infer Collins has been singled out as the defensive weakness that had lead Wolves to drop 11 out of 12 points after previously gaining 22 from 24.

If anyone is scratching their head at this point, they're not the only one.

After all, the loss of form didn't coincide with the re introduction of Collins to the defensive line up, but it did coincide with the return of manager Mick's old warhorse.

We don't like to criticise Mick too much at Olofin Towers. To be fair, he rarely gives us much to be critical about, but his unstinting support for a player in a crucial area, whose presence has led to a dramatic dip in form is causing eyebrows to be raised.

If Wolves season ends anything short of a play off place it won't only be our fingers pointing to misguided loyalty as being a root cause of the disapointment.
