The season to be jolly is over, especially after the Christmas period Ståle Solbakken’s Wolves side have dished up.
It wasn’t just the Turkey’s getting a stuffing this year, it was also Wolverhampton Wanderers.
4 defeats in 5 games, 5 goals scored and 11 goals conceded.
We now sit in 18th position in the Championship, our lowest position at this time of the year since 2005.
That season an unbeaten run of 18 games, which included 4 wins in the final 5 games of the season resulted in a ninth place finish.
Right now I think we’d all take that again, but the festive fixtures didn’t really show any signs of a revival like the one we enjoyed 8 years ago.
“We had been on a decent run of results and have let ourselves and the fans down with the displays over Christmas.’ Henry told Wolves Official Website.
But he refused to lay the blame at the managers door, instead pointing to the default excuse which has been pushed far too many times this season already: “Maybe the hangover after relegation has affected us more than we thought.’ he said before adding “But it is no good making excuses – while the Championship has changed a lot since we last played in it we have to do better and certainly a lot better than we have been playing at the moment.’
So where are these improved performances going to come from are they going to be inspired by Norwegian boss Ståle Solbakken who after less than eight months in the job holds a record of 10 wins, 5 draws and 14 defeats since taking over at Molineux?
‘At this moment in time, everything is going the way we don’t want it to go,’ Solbakken told the BBC.
Right, so what you going to do to change things?
He continued: ‘They’re (players) trying and I don’t want to blame any players because I see they are down – the last thing we should do is pull excuses. I’ve got to take the responsibility and so do the players.
‘It’s only together we can get out of the very big hole we are in at the moment.’
So pulling together and taking responsibility, I can take that, there is no point in playing the blame game, that said, the buck stops somewhere Ståle and that’s at your door.
For me there hasn’t been enough potential to prove his appointment was the right one. Some will argue he needs time, others will say they’ve seen enough.
