End Of The Honeymoon

End Of The Honeymoon

Wolves fans and players woke with a bump last night as a second consecutive below par performance saw them dumped uncerimoniously from the Carling Cup, and booed from the pitch.

Outfought, out muscled, out played even, Wolves had only themselves to blame as the League Two Shrimps became giant killers.

Carl Baker put Morecambe ahead in the second half after Graham Stack was adjudjed to have brought down Michael Twiss.

Andy Keogh levelled from the spot in the 84th minute as Wolves looked to be getting the better of the visitors, taking the tie into extra time.

Two minutes after the restart saster struck when Graham Stack let Jon Newby's shot squirm past him to put the Shrimps ahead, before Garry Thompson's chip applied the coup de grace five minutes from the end.

'The exit is deserved, we were out-fought and out-played. It's not often I can say this but we were out-grafted,' an angry Mick McCarrthy said

When the third goal went in we looked a shambles. That has brought us down to earth. We deserved to be booed.'

The display that had McCarthy label Wolves defending as amateurish, marks the first match where many of the squads youngsters have felt the full force of a disgruntled paying public.

It has also called into question the strength in depth of the current roster, although McCarthy was quick to point out after the match that injuries and selection changes aside, this squad should be good enough to beat Morecambe.

The former Ireland boss expects the effect of the loss, and the resultant crowd reaction to be a positive one, and believes the teams ability to find a spur in defeat will be enough to raise their game on Saturday when the squad travels to Stoke City.

As the the golden revolution's honeymoon finally ends, it's time for Wolves to once more find their teeth.
