Wolves were once again in the headlines when they fired their manager Mick McCarthy, ending his 6 year reign at the Molineux Stadium.

Wolves found themselves languishing in the relegation zone, and warning signs had been sounded the week before McCarthy’s dismissal, with the chairman finding it appropriate to enter the changing room at the end of another match which had ended in defeat.


Wolves manager Mick McCarthy and West Brom manager Roy Hodgson are two men under intense pressure. However, the pressure on Mick McCarthy relieved somewhat after the end of last week.

Wolves managed to beat QPR away from home in a thrilling encounter, which gives the opportunity for Wolves to take six points in three matches.


Wolves owner Steve Morgan has said that he is not willing to sack the manager Mick McCarthy, despite fans not been pleased with his tactics and team selection so far.

Mick McCarthy was instrumental in getting Wolverhampton Wanderers promoted to the Premier League a few seasons ago, but Wolves fans have never been happy with the manager.

McCarthy has no problem with Stoke tactics

Mick McCarthy will have no problem if Stoke City employ controversial tactics when they play his Wolves side this weekend.

Both sides have to agree to the use of a towel to dry the ball before a thrown in, but some accused Shotton and his club of attempting to circumvent the regulation by wearing a special shirt with a towelling lining, something he later denied.


When you play against the side who have decimated the Premier League Champions 6-1, you could be forgiven for hoping for anything less than a drubbing.

Considering Wolves came through the game against Manchester City with a 3-1 loss, there might be much to be happy about, but the sad matter of fact is that they left the Etihad Stadium without any points.

"We played well. We had to defend in the first-half and Wayne Hennessey made a couple of magnificent saves.

"You can imagine how he feels. He is as good as any goalkeeper in this league and it is such a shame it has cost us.



Mick McCarthy has said that his job is not under any threat and he is confident of success shortly. Wolves are 20th after suffering a 2-1 loss to Wigan on Boxing Day.

"Am I feeling the pressure? It's always the same from outside," said McCarthy ahead of Wednesday's match against Liverpool at Anfield.

"I don't worry about that at all because I have a good relationship with everyone at the club."
