Wolves 2-3 Bolton.
What the fuck? What the fuck is going on?
What happened to Molineux? What about winning at home? An Englishman’s home is his castle you know, so Molineux is Steve Morgan’s prison! By deduction.
Where are our clean sheets? Sid the shitty shitting shit artist who suffers chronic night time sleep induced shits has cleaner sheets than us! When did we last have a clean sheet in the Premier league? I mean we managed a 0-0 with Blues in the FA Cup in January but in the Premiership it was…. Oh man… it’s on the tip of my tongue… (When was it?) Go back to September and we beat Millwall 5-0 in the League cup… but that still aint Premier league… when was it… Oh yeah!
0-0 away at Aston Villa, that was it, August 2011. We’d won our first two league games and then after a 4-0 league cup win against Northampton we got a point at Villa Park that took us to top of the Premier league for a tiny while. I remember now. FUCKING HELL!
So we’re bottom of the fucking league, we’re six points behind 19th place. Six points, two wins away from still being relegated. Our goal difference is -35, that’s 9 goals worse off than Wigan Athletic who are 19th. We have seven games left out of which we will get zero points, maybe one or two in our dreams. Yes we are almost Derby County!
Let’s not waste a week, a day or a moment. We are a championship team. Terry Connor, the suffering Terry Connor needs first, an honour bestowed on him by the club for doing this job that no one wanted under Steve Morgan, and secondly he needs, for the best of the club, to ask the players who wants to stay and who wants to go and start getting the transfer ball rolling for the summer (Terry needs to go too, and will, he needs to be a coach). We are going to lose Fletcher without a doubt, Doyle may go to try and save his international career, Jarvis may go but then again he may not, the same with Kightly and big lad Wayne Hennessey will certainly go unless of course he sees an immediate return to the Prem with us. Roger Johnson should be given taxi money to the nearest Wetherspoons and told to fuck off, what a waste of money and what a fucking let down. Every time he pulls on the shirt I’ve felt let down, all season, he aint a captain. He’s a fucking loser. What ever he cost write it off and let him go, let some other club deal with his bullshit and inability. But at least he’s consistent; he’s played in successive premiership relegation defences now. Good form Johnson, cement the proof that you are shit! Lanky streak of… BALL CHEESE! Every other player we can keep if we want them. Eggert, get the fuck in your car and drive off a cliff or prove me very wrong next season. Karl Henry et al get on with it chaps, take us back up, you know you can.
We need to plan now and not miss the boat when it comes to transfer targets and new managers. I know it’s early but our fate is sealed so accept it and prepare!
Then we can have the autopsy of the season ahead of doing it mid-May.
The fans: They booed and jeered from October onwards and they hoped for a pre-January transfer window sacking to give a new man a chance, but it never came, but they kept booing until Mick was sacked… after the transfer window. Well done! The booing is understandable but the small numbers of actual fans who stood outside Molineux after the Albion defeat, imbecilic. A bad manager who has been in this position before, two years running and knows the score, is better than a coach in charge (and I say that with the utmost respect for Terry Connor).
Mick McCarthy spent poorly: Mick spent a lot of cash, not as much as you see reported, but nevertheless a lot of cash. It was millions, but it was his squad and his team and they played for him. They stayed up two years running (no matter what you say about the last day stay up in the summer of 2011) and they beat some mighty fine teams too (one of them was invincible apparently!) Mick did his job, fans will breakdown his transfers and make up their own minds but still, he took us up, but never took us down. He was sacked for losing, not relegation. Remember that.
The players are hot and cold, from game to game, half to half, touch to touch: The explanation for why decent players suddenly start to play badly then good and then badly again is a mystery. But we can only guess that off the field and behind the scenes things took their attention such as a chairman storming into the dressing room or the sacking of a manager after a few fans protested a defeat; or maybe the uncertainty from fans patting them on the back and then booing them within minutes of a goal scored and a goal conceded.
Jez Moxey and Steve Morgan: Management speak, bullshit, hyperbole, looking like David Brent, all strings to Jez’s bow but we cannot blame a man who is a yes man. He is essentially Waylon Smithers to Morgan who is Mr Burns. Morgan has to carry the blame for the sacking of Mick he ultimately had the final decision. Mick would have been better to have in charge in a relegation dogfight, not Connor, he’d have had the players on side and owned the dressing room. We’d have had some fight and some spirit. Terry is trying hard and doing the best in a bad situation. A very bad situation.
So who do you blame? Fans, players, board?
I think we all have to carry a little bit of blame for the way we have reacted this season. It was our third season and we expected more.
But still I will remember this season simply for this – sacking a manager after the January transfer window had closed and then failing to have a replacement or find one and then having a chairman who became mute after appointing a coach from the club. Where is our big man chairman now? He aint saying much and we lost heavily to Man Utd and Fulham since the Albion debacle. He’s gone mute. Perhaps he’s waiting to offload us so he can attempt to buy his beloved Liverpool. Cus we are nothing but an investment to him, an entity to make cash. We’re not Stan Cullis, Billy Wright, Honved victory, John Richards, Bert Williams, Willie Carr, Emlyn Hughes, League Cup winners, FA Cup winners, Steve Bull, Sherpa van trophy winners, Graham Turner, out of darkness cometh light, Wolverhampton Wanderers. To him we’re – spend a tenner and make millions, short term business deal.
In football you can own a successful club and lose some money, or you can make money and watch a team struggle.
What kind of owner do we have?
Why are we bottom of the Premiership tonight?
Why are we blaming everyone else but the man who’s to blame?
P.S. Maybe lessons will be learned and next season we can see the start of something good, I hope so Steve Morgan, I hope so. 25+ years of support and I’ve never known weak leadership like this. Bring back Jack Hayward, that don’t sound so mad to me. Do what it takes, even if you have to finish off your precious stand and sell the club. Just give the fans their confidence in their club again and let us dream of 17th every season in the Premiership. That’s not a lot to ask.
