Back To Business

You don't have to have been a fly on the wall to know the reception that greeted the Wolves players when they returned to the dressing room following their 3-1 loss to Morecambe.

Call it a hair dryer, call it what you want. They will have been left in no doubt that more than the result, the performance agaiinst the Shrimps was sinmply not acceptable.

Too many players failed to do their job, and mistakes were made that make a mockery of the clubs Premiership aspirations.

Of course, it is far too early to talk of crisis, although manager Mick McCarthy has raised the subject of expectation perhaps weighing heavy on the players, a phrase absent for the last 12 months.

Talking to the clubs official site, Andy Keogh said

'After a display like ours against Morecambe, you just want the next game to come along as quickly as possible so you have the chance to put things right.'

Hopefully last nights side won't get that chance for a very long time.

McCarthy made seven team changes, some forced, and not many can say that they aquitted themselves with any kind of credit.

McCarthy could bemoan his lack of forward options last night. His striker less bench a rareity.

Although it was Wanderers strength, or lack of it at the back that was their undoing.

Wolves have yet to record a clean sheet this season. That simply has to change, unless McCarthy wishes to adopt Danny Blanchflowers tactic of equalising befoe the opposition side scores.

Free-scoring Freddy has already come up with one get out of jail card, and as last night proved, that cannot be rellied on every match.

Fortune favours the brave, and Wolves next opponents have conceded 6 goals already this season, to Wolves 8 whilst racking up their two wins, with Stoke scoring 7, two less than Wolves in return.

Wolves desperately need to find their defensive Braveheart if Mick McCarthy's men are to get their game back on track and establish themselves as genuine top flight contenders.
