With Wolves taking on Burnley next, McCarthy’s team selection against Manchester United was understandable, according to legend Steve Bull.
McCarthy made ten changes from the side that head beaten Spurs, with most pundits believing that Wolves conceded the game before a ball was kicked.
“I was disappointed when I saw the team, just like the other 3,000 Wolves fans there,” Bull told the Express & Star.
He went on to add: “But deep down I think realism comes to mind when you`ve got Burnley on Sunday so you`d rather field a very strong side there. As fans you have to bite your lip some days. You`re going to get good games with a full side some days, and some days you`re not.”
“Realistically, we got three points at Spurs where we didn`t expect three points and Mick`s come away probably thinking don`t bite off more than you can chew,”
Vital Wolves Comment: Many Wolves fans will probably agree with the sentiment behind Bully’s comments. Tactically it was the right thing to do as it improves our chances against Burnley.
But morally, I struggle to see how it was the right thing to do by the travelling supporters.
