If anyone can name one side we can beat between now and the end of the season then I am all ears. My concerns are not about this season anymore, we've had it. I am more worried about the long term impact. No one seems to know who to blame either. I won't blame Connor so that leaves two. I hear there was a protest against Moxey but if he was handed so much power in the shambolic attempt at finding a manager then the blame gets knocked onto the owner for allowing it.

I actually found that ZEN place that SB was banging on about. Throughout the ame. I never once got upset or angry. I accepted our fate in the knowledge that this season is now officially dead and that we will be a Championship team next season. Can I name a team we can beat???? I'm not actually sure I can name a team that we can take a single point from. The players look completely beaten. The highlight of the day was young David Davis who did actually shine amongst the *****e that surrounded him.

NYCW there is only one person to blame for this disaster that is M Mcarthy we all said on here before the start of the season we needed at least four or five new signings we bought RJ.Their lies the problem third worst defence in all four divisions last season and we buy one defender that is MM Fault.We all seen the defence and midfield was not up to scratch but he could not so apart from one new defender nothing changed for a team that survived in the last three minutes of last season. Iam not blameing Connor but it is worrying when he turns round and said after the Fulham disaster we have to cut out the silly mistakes does that remind you of anyone enough said.

Two very poor teams,a poor game,all confidence has gone from the players,I'd put the kids in for the last few games,Davis was the only one that played anything like up to standard.Put Zeli and the rest in,it cant be any worse than this rubbish.Banksy dont bother with the match report,I and we dont want to go through that again!!!.

I've just got home after the match. Have to pay my dues by watching a fluffy film this evening but will write the report before I go to bed. Feeling surprisingly relaxed.

It's Morgan and Moxey who are to blame for the lack of signings, kiawolves, not Mick McCarthy.They decided to try staying in the premiership on the cheap.Morgan seems to have played out a self fulfilling prophecy regarding a manager he didn't rate i.e. don't give him the necessary funds to compete and he's sure to fail, therefore proving Morgan right not to have rated him. One thing this season has convinced me of is that the Liverpool fan is using the name of our club to facilitate good will and ease through his ever mounting building 'projects'. There's an agenda and Wolves being relegated is a mere irritation to him and barely a blip in his plans.

Why is the argument that McCarthy had more funds the outcome would have been much different? Who bought the players we have that have looked so poor in the last month? If it's all about throwing money at teams, why are QPR struggling? MM did a great job, but there was no improvement. If Morgan and Moxey had seen what we were seeing ten games in then they might have saved themselves all this. I cannot believe that any chairman really believes that being outside the premier league is in their best interest. His building projects will surely be on hold now. I can't remember too many takers when Sir Jack was trying to sell the club. Gregory it's not about attacking our players, as that's out of order, but realizing there's a squad and if you continually marginalize people without reason they won't perform. Just be thankful we're not in Portsmouth's position. I believe we had the players to stay up this season and so did MM... It was fear to change things and tactical limitations that were MM downfall, not the players he couldn't buy. Be careful for what you wish for, as I'm sure the next step could easily be some foreign company as if Morgan is forced out in this manner, will he care who he sells to?

The argument about players goes like this; at the end of last season it was almost unanimously agreed amongst fans that we were in need of two centre-halves, a left-back and a central midfield player (not including JOH who was considered already signed) as a requirement to save us from another scrap against relegation.NOT champions league qualification, not even a top half finish, but merely to stay away from the bottom three.Our signings fell three players short of that considered requirement. MM did indeed identify players he was interested in and was told:"Sorry, too expensive".Would he have done any better with those players signed? I don't know and we'll never know now. But the idea that McCarthy decided his squad was good enough and turned down the chance to strenghthen further is apparently based on his answers to questions in press conferences.OK, he could have spent the pre-season bemoaning the fact he was not being supported in the transfer market and that he thought his squad was a shower of s***e but maybe he realised it may not be best for squad morale had he done so.The only building project on hold is the Molineux. Morgan announced his latest (the yoof centre) only the other week. Despite petitions from residents at compton and those from the teachers and staff at St Edmunds (none of whom wanted this development) his infamous '55 luxury homes' are to be built as planned on a green site.He's a property developer;it's what he does.He's not going to be 'forced out'; that's ridiculous.It's one thing to say he's made a complete f*** of this season and another entirely to tell him to do one.There is no debate as to whether the owner is staying because of course he is.What really has wound fans up is that his inaction on either backing or sacking McCarthy in the summer resulted in the much predicted inertia.But, until it's mathematically impossible to do so, we 're still in with a chance of staying up.The fat lady may well be warming her vocal chords but she ain't singing just yet.

I aired this version of the conspiracy theory some time ago. If true- and it is becoming increasingly likely- it puts MM's performance in a slightly different light. He did show tactical naivete, was slow in responding to events on the pitch and did have his favourites and outcasts and he had to go ... but he was not dealt a very good hand to start with.

Hey, i'm not saying Mick McCarthy was faultless or that he would have guaranteed us safety with a bit more cash to spend. Every manager has his 'favourites' and so do the fans. The thing is, having seen Adlene, Milijas and Hammill play this season I find it a bit rich of those fans who were screaming for their inclusion(s), even after their woeful performances, to accuse MM of favouritism;but blind faith for underperforming players from the fans is different?AG has turned in as poor a string of performances as any player. Like it or lump it MM picked the best eleven from a very average bunch.Of course a 'better' manager could have gotten 'better' performances from 'the group' (apparently that's what a squad is refered to as these days) but that's just stating the obvious. I wouldn't waste my breath on pointless statements like 'a worse manager would have made a worse job'...Me and others I know were considered doom and gloom merchants for predicting same again for this season as last i.e. in and out the bottom three.We had the same team, had therefore moved backwards (a club doesn't stand still under those circumstances)so why expect anything different. I read some truly fantastic predictions on this site and others following our one totally new signing in the summer;finishing positions predicted to be as high as 7th/8th..remaining unbeaten until January (truly f***ing mind blowing that one)...all of which collective delusion was being willfully encouraged/exploited by the club:"...pushing for a top ten finish..." ,is just one phrase that will haunt them.But, unlike dreamy fans wishing for the stars, the club made it a mission statement and therefore should be held accountable come the end of the season.You can't blame fans for dreaming but you can certainly blame those at the club who encouraged us all to dream those dreams only to deliver us into a nightmare.

Hey Winston and SB60 thanks for constructive filling in. I suppose the crux of it, we all think that something more should have been done - either spending more at the beginning of the season or sacking MM earlier. And on those counts you're right about the failure of Morgan and Moxey. On the player front, I guess I just have a belief that a good man manager would have got more from those who are dismissed as not good enough, or shown a little more faith in the youngsters such as Doherty, Forde and Davis and brought them in and around the squad rather now you see him now you don't. Stearman was never a right back and barely passes as a centre back. McCarthy persisted with him there regardless, even when there were options. I felt that if MM had learned a little from the previous season and taken a few risks then... but then we're getting into a change of personality and style which would never happen. After last season I agree that hovering around the drop zone was likely, but expected a little better against the clubs around us. I agree that we desperately needed a left back but cannot see how Ward would have made way. If I buy into the conspiracy, then it's all very sad and a reminder that the game is all about money now... We're just all hurting about the state of affairs now I guess and all these what ifs, should haves, could haves are not really going to change a thing.
