I was ready, pencil sharpened and scribble-pad open, to note the events of the match, preparatory to writing my match report. Unfortunately, none of the free view sites worked so I had to wait for Football First and by then it was too late. I hope SS was watching the match because it will indicate to him the magnitude of the task facing him. Once again we threw away a winning position by awful defending. For the first, Hunt lost the ball in a dangerous position and compounded his error by deflecting Di Santo's shot into the net. Stearman failed to intercept the corner for the second and no-one picked up Boyce for the third. Throughout, our defenders constantly found themselves out of position and allowed Wigan to flood through the gaps. Berra gave a master-class in the unsubtle arts of wrestling, holding on and pushing, while Stearman went AWOL on numerous occasions. Great goal by Jarvis though.

Defensively we are a shambles. SS needs to grip that before any other position. I hear he likes to build around a good defence so let's hope that's true because we need it. Bet RJ was on his phone to his agent after the game after the abuse he got from the fans. I also heard that Stale wants to bring a couple of coaches with him......let's hope one is a defensive coach. The season is over and not even JW could admit it was anything other than a disaster but let's put it behind us and move forward. We need to pull together and support the new guy and give him time to build HIS team for the new campaign. The hard work starts now. Up the Wolves.

thank. goodness. its over. Listened to the Stolbakken interview on official site and though little was given away he seems an astute fellow, and certainly something a little different to what we've had before, so lets see. Apart from Ward, I dont think any of our defenders has a case to keep their jobs and I hope stearman and berra follown johnson through the exit. With Hammil and Jarvis on the WIngs, Griffiths/Doyle/Ebanks up front, we will be fine going forward. We Are Wolves.

Stale will have seen, even this early, that the underlying problem is the defence. Those DVD's will confirm it. His mental work has started already, whom to retain (apart from WH) and who to bring in will follow. That will be his first task.I am expecting a mass clear-out.

AdMant: nice to see your inclusion of Griffiths in the list of WW strikers for next season. Given how well he has been playing for Hibs (even allowing for the difference in the standard of play), he is surely worth a punt. SEB will score in the Championship and Vokes is improving. Regarding the defenders, I wouldn't keep any of them, except Ward as a utility player. I expect to see Batth and Doherty come into contention. In the inner midfield I am hoping to have the choice of Henry, Davis, Guedioura and Milijas and on the flanks Hammill, Forde, Gorman and Kightly. Of the ones I don't want to leave, I expect Jarvis, Doyle, Hunt, Fletcher, O'Hara and Hennessey (when fit) to go. As this list indicates, I would like to see our promising youngsters get a chance but I expect that SS will buy some established players to add experience and quickly to remedy obvious defects. Let's hope he has a better eye for potential than the previous coaching team... or the scouts for that matter.

What SS won't have, Southbank60, is TC sat next to him, while he's watching the match dvds, telling him what he's watching. No excuses, no favourites. Just him (and our soon-to-be coaching staff, i'm sure) watching free from hindrance of those with a vested interest.

I hope so, WS84, but I pity the cat when he's watched the video nasty.
