Roger Johnson might have remained as Wolves captain since the departure of Mick McCarthy, but the former Blues defender didn’t keep his starting spot at Newcastle.
After the 5-1 defeat to West Brom and this being Terry Connor’s first game in charge of the team, it was obvious changes would be made.
The victim of those changes was Johnson who was dropped from the starting XI and was an unused substitute in Connor’s first game in charge.
‘I didn’t want to do it but I thought it was the right decision, I’m not blaming Roger for us losing to West Brom but most people would agree you couldn’t keep the same team and subs when you’ve lost 5-1.’ Connor told the Birmingham Post.
Connor continued: ‘But Roger took it very well, took it on the chin. He supported the lads and did everything I’d expect of him as captain of the team. That’s what you have to do.
‘He will want to be in the next team so he has to be a good pro. Being captain doesn’t mean that you have to play in every game.’
Johnson’s recent form had been brought into question by some Wolves fans so it was a popular choice.
But was it a decision Mick McCarthy would have made and did that decision have any outcome on the well earned point?
