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.


Wolverhampton Wanderers have said that they are extremely disappointed that the English FA have decided to reject the appeal over the red card for Nenad Milijas. Nenad Milijas was sent off in the 1-1 draw with Arsenal recently.

The match was scheduled to take place on Boxing Day, but was postponed due to a tube strike in London. The match went as planned on Tuesday and Arsenal went into the match hoping to take all three points. It would have allowed them to close the gap on Chelsea given that the West Londoners could manage only a draw against Fulham.


Wolves midfielder Stephen Hunt has said that Wolverhampton Wanderers need to show some consistency in order to show that they can survive in the Premier League. Wolverhampton Wanderers are going through a tough period right now, with the team unable to put together a string of results.

As a result, they are sliding down the table pretty quickly, and the prospect of relegation now seems to be a distinct possibility.

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.


Wolverhampton Wanderers suffered yet another defeat as they went down 2-1 in their match against Everton. However, Wolves manager Mick McCarthy was extremely critical of the penalty that was awarded to Everton, which ultimately led to the winner.

Speaking after the match, McCarthy was incensed, saying that the penalty was extremely soft and that a number of penalties would have to be given every week if it had been the case universally.


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.



Wolverhampton defender Zubar has said that he is looking to return to the team in July. The 25-year-old needed an operation to cure a back problem and missed the final three months of the season.

Zubar told the club website: "I had to rest for a month after the surgery and then came back and started doing gym work to get the back stronger.

"I'm getting better day by day and week by week. If all is well, I will come back and should be ready for 4 July."



Wolves owner Steve Morgan has backed boss Mick McCarthy to succeed once again next season. Wolves host Blackburn at Molineux on Sunday knowing a win would be enough to keep them in the Premier League.

"You never give the dreaded vote of confidence but Mick has been here for five years and I don't believe you get any progress at all by chopping and changing," said Morgan.

"Chopping and changing happens at other clubs and what good has it done them?"
