The Wolverhampton Wanderers supporters deserve an apology from gaffer Mick McCarthy following the Manchester United shambles.

That is our view at Vital Wolves and a view apparently shared by many Wolves fans, especially those that made the trip to Old Trafford last night.

‘Wolves sold out their allocation, paid £42 each plus the time and cost of travelling, and my first reaction when I saw 10 changes and players playing out of position was, I thought, grossly disrespectful.’ Arthur Williams of North West Wolves told the BBC.

We may not have expected to get a result against United, but at least against Arsenal and Chelsea where we were rolled over we still fielded our full strength side which gave us a chance of pulling off an upset.

Following the recent results over Bolton and Spurs, we were beginning to feel like we had taken a couple of steps forward. But now with one team selection it feels we have taken five back.

“What is worrying is how the decision to send out what was effectively a team of sacrificial lambs went down in the dressing room – and the pressure that it has placed on the players who will be recalled on Sunday to win.” Charles Ross, editor of the Wolves fanzine ALOB told the Express & Star.
