Harsh, But Fair?

Harsh, But Fair?

It's not getting any better for Mick McCarthy.

Despite the addition of the divisions third highest scorer, Wolves once again failed to register a goal on Saturday as Crystal Palace travelled home with a 3 point haul from the stadium formerly known as fortress Molineux, thanks to three un answered goals from Clinton Morrison, Sean Scannell and James Scowcroft.

The final scoreline may have flattered the visitors, but there was no hyperbole needed for the quality of their finishing, Scowcroft's 30 yard volley being the pick of the bunch that had Neil Warnock smiling all the way to the South Bank.

Warnock's fortunes at Palace are in stark contrast to McCarthy's current plight.

The man everyone loves to hate has taken his side from relegation fodder to promotion hopefulls on a 14 match unbeaten record whilst Wanderers haven't won in their last 8 outings.

Which has now led to the resurrection of a chant not heard at Molineux for over a year, 'There's only one Paul Ince.', and then, in very different circumstances.

With Wolves slipping to twelfth, the pressure on McCarthy is sure to continue, within the media anyway, whilst officials at the club continue to give him their full backing.

Whether he can regain the trust of the more nervous elements of the Wanderers following remains to be seen.

i have always been behind mick, even in the recent weeks, but you just can't lose 3-0 at home when we are one on the best teams in the league. yes we are having a bad run of form, but it doesn't help when you just make idiotic decisions. i mean jay bothroyd was the worst player on the pitch against palace, and we spend 1.5 million on the 3rd highest scorer in the league and take him off after an hour when we are losing! its a discrace. SORT IT OUT MICK.
