With a kind of innevetability Wolves home tie with Sunderland, which was due to be played on Saturday November 25, will now take place on Friday 24 with an 8pm kick-off to accomodate Skysports cameras.

It will be the first meeting of Mick McCarthy and Roy Keane since their public spat at Japan 02, and with predictability, Rupert Murdoch’s boys could not resist the temptation to film every moment for posterity.

Who cares if it means misery for many fans, a poor turn out and muted atmosphere?

Le Grand Eric once famously said, that when the seagulls follow a trawler, it is because they think sardines will be thrown in the sea, and here is certainly a case in point.

But I can’t help feeling that on this night at least, they are going to go hungry.

McCarthy’s and Keane’s professionalism will now be put to the test in front of an audience of millions, and it’s difficult to imagine either letting their club down.

But whilst there is a chance, the seagulls will still gather, and expect them to do so in ever growing numbers, the closer it gets to November 24th.
