One of the biggest talking points after the game with Newcastle revolved once again around Karl Henry.

This season of course it had nothing to do with Joey Barton, as we had the misfortune of meeting him a couple of weeks ago against his new club QPR.

This season it was the fans reaction to his 58th minute substitution, with some fans inside Molineux cheering as he went off the pitch, not because the former skipper had put in a glowing performance, but in sarcastic applause because some thought he might have had a bit of a mare.

Obviously he wasn’t having the greatest of games, but he was being voted as man-of-the-match last week against Liverpool, so it has hardly been a long run of poor form; it all seemed rather distasteful and fickle to me.

No doubt these are the same boo-boys who will be calling for Mick’s head over the next couple of months, only to be chanting his name come the end of the season once we have survived another season in the Premier League.

The reaction of the crowd certainly annoyed Jamie O’Hara, who would probably be forgiven if he was re-thinking his previous comments about the great support the side receive from the fans.

‘Thought it was shocking that the fans cheered Karl off today. A player that gives everything deserves better from our fans. he wrote on his twitter page.

He added: ‘It’s a long season and the fans should get behind the team. We are still improving and that takes time.

‘When they got behind us we were good and created chances. Come on Wolves’ fans, we need your support. It doesn’t do anyone any good booing us.’

While Wolves gaffer Mick McCarthy refused to comment simply telling the Daily Mail: ‘You guys can write it, but I’m going to decline answering that if you don’t mind.’

Some will argue that they pay their money and they can do as they like. Which to a certain extent is very true.

Football is not the cheapest of pastimes at the moment, certainly not during this current ‘financial climate’ as the media types would call it and it is one of many reasons why there are so many empty seats inside Molineux at the moment.

But what positives come from booing and jeering our own players?
