Just Another Game

Just Another Game

'Its just another game.'

Mick McCarthy's words ahead of Sunday's crucial must win match against Leicester. But McCarthy's fooling no one.

Looking as relaxed as Glenn Hoddle looked pensive this time last year, the the former Ireland manager stands on the brink of a monumental achievement that should already have sealed his place in the Wolves history books.

To say the season has come down to 90 minutes wouldn't quite be true as with another 3 games at stake, culminating in the single richest match in football history, McCarthy is hoping Wolves season isn't going to revolve around one game.

Nor is he planning to make any changes to the formula that has gotten Wolves where they are today

'Whatever you've done to get yourself in this position, changing it now is ridiculous.' he said. ' We've got ourselves into this position doing what we do, why change it?'

'If we win, and I think that's really the only message that should be going to the players from me, we're in the play-offs. So we're setting off with the intention of winning, not trying to keep it tight, and hoping something else happens, No. We're going to try and win the game, and see what happens.'

With a sell out crowd on the cards, and Wolves phenomenal traveling supporters taking up their full ticket allocation, the atmosphere at The Walkers Stadium is bound to be electric.

As Mick McCarthy says, 'It's quite exciting, innit?'
