I can't write a report because I've overdone it with the typing since coming out of hospital. I would only be repeating myself anyway: a stupid mistake leading to a goal; a porous defence, easily turned and incapable of defending set pieces; and a lack of knowledge of the opposition goal ... oh, and another masterful display by WH, who prevented us going down by a cricket score. We may have been playing Chelsea but, if we can't get the basics right, every team will beat us.

SB since we came up we have never got the basics right and once again MM comes on and says we shot are selfs in the foot this has been happening for 2and a half seasons. When will the guy realise the defence is shocking the midfield is not much better when he plays Ward on the left and puts Elokobi at left back Guedioura must have went right down the pecking order.Saying that Milijas is not much better these so called PL players are not good enough and should be sold in jan and get some players who can play and no more of MMs excuses come on january.

A first-half drubbing followed by a scoreless second half, of which I decided to spare myself the agony. What chances of a half-time AVB-MM entente cordiale on a status quo about the scoreline.. Chelsea having all but bagged the points and not wrecking WW's negative goal difference further???

After witnessing my first Live Televised Abortion on Saturday I honestly dont know where we go from here. There isnt enough time or space available to write all that is wrong with this club right now. Forget that it was chelsea we were playing, it could have been Shrewsbury or Grimsby there was no way that abject performance was taking any points away with it. We are nothing less than comical and we have that muppet to thank for all of it. the team selection, the ineptitude in the transfer, the fact that we are, undoubtedly the WORST side in this division.
28/11/2011 10:54:00
At the moment I can see no way forward. Saturday's performance was abysmal and yet there is no sign from MM and the management that they have grasped the extent of the problem the club faces. And January will not solve the crisis. It now looks like I will not be able to return to Molineux for the Sunderland game, having been banned from making long journeys, but at least I will not be throwing away the train fare on top of the cost of my season ticket. I will not desert WW - and will renew my season ticket next year even if we do go down - but I would like a run for my money. Never mind the lack of skill, where was the shift?

I was the same as lovesW did'nt watch the second half,went out got mullered.Something has got to happen next Sunday,Bruce or Merlin?whoever loses I think they are finished and Coco can pick his p45 up as well.At the very least bring in another coach/assistant to see if they can help turn it around.

I dont think there is any question that we are going down, it would require some kind of almighty collapse of THREE other teams to save us - something we've sadly had to rely on the past 2 seasons... Thing is, mccarthy is then a good bet to get us straight back up again - but do we then keep him on, knowing that he is completely out of his depth at this level ? I say no. The Wolves board however have other ideas.
28/11/2011 13:11:00
I only hope that, if we do go down, MM does the honourable thing and resigns (though I expect he would be pushed). I also think that he should resign, even if we manage to survive, as he is clearly out of his depth in the PL. Personally, I think he's blown it already. The happy clappers will point to the fact that he has kept us in the top flight for two seasons and therefore is up to the job. I disagree, believing that we lucky in both seasons. In the first one, in effect, we only had to end up higher than one other team and last year we squeaked by with less than three minutes to go. And the team played like a team, occasionally played well and put in a shift. This year has been a shambles, without direction off the pitch and without a clue on it. Alarm bells should have been ringing at the end of last season but, between them, MM and the management buried their heads in the sand and refused to spend the amount needed to ensure our continuing presence in the PL. And they call us numpties? I shouldn't be writing as it hurts my neck - and I don't want to write in this vein- but I have to add my voice to the protest. MM cannot get us out of this mess and the sooner he goes the better or he'll undo all the goodwill I and others feel towards him for getting us into the PL in the first place.

Easy everyone - WW won't be going down, not with a manager who has the experience of relegation scrambles of two full seasons now, and counting... lucky last season, as has been pointed out, and lucky again in this one; really, if we see with our eyes, not with our hearts, the Fulham win was only a consequence of their being knackered after the midweek Europa Cup match. They just were not there. So, taking that into account, and balancing somewhat by the probably deserved but unobtained point against Newcastle, the points tally should be 9, that is, bottom three in the PL. I am however confident that MM will do it again this time around .....and next year, and the next after that, and that is precisely what I am not looking forward to. The way beyond survival is in the hands on one man alone, and it is impossible that he is unaware of all that is being said here, even without it being said here. Indeed, he must know much more about it than we do and than we could ever do.
28/11/2011 20:15:00
Ever the optimist, lovesW: if you offered me survival now, I would bite your hand off. But how much closer can we get to the drop without going down? By my reckoning it's about 149 seconds.
