Fight.

  1. How many times have people questioned how much fight our team and squad have? Would our players put their bodies on the line when it was needed? Would we be able to ‘mix it up’ with the big boys of this league? If we did and lost a couple of players, would the others see us through to victory?

    I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve read articles in the press, or heard people (noticeably Tony Butler on WM) on the radio/TV question our team about whether we’d be able to win the tougher, more physical games this season when things aren’t going so well. When we can’t go out there and win by 3 or 4 goals.

    Well if the hard fought wins over the likes of Southampton, Cardiff, Swansea, Coventry etc weren’t enough – where the performances weren’t amazing but where we still ground out the correct result – then last night really takes the biscuit.

    Sheffield United - Obvious promotion contenders, far more experienced players, a very physical team who throw their weight around, a team who carry a goal threat but also a good defensive record… and during parts of the game when they were all over us and we’d lost important players, I think its safe to say us Wolves fans were fearing for the worst… but our lads didn’t disappoint one bit!

    They stuck together, defended well, rode their luck, but scored their chances and walk away bruised and battered, but with the three points.

    I’m very proud of our lads today. I hope certain areas of the media recognise this ‘fighting’ performance and lay off the tired clichés that have been aimed at us before. Bring on Birmingham I say!

    I put this in the commentary thread last night, but i thought it was rather amusing to quote this morning -



    I didn't say this in a bad way. To me, this sums up how everyone is fighting for the team, the shirt, the fans etc and what a great job everyone is doing... Long may it continue.

    People keep quoting Watford, last season Watford never had these points after these games.
    Watford never had the indepth strength

    magnificent performance from the squad. the result last night shows what mick mcCarthy is all about as a manager. 100% football, craft with graft and no fancy dans ponceing around.

    and Watford were/are a "hoofball" side,now what was the name of that other team that were often referred to a a "hoofball" side last season by a few on this msg board?
    Can't for life of me think at the moment,they don't seem to post that often nowadays.

    :D

    that's because "they" are actually one and the same person under many pseudonyms - and that person has now crawled back under a rock...

    The credit for the fight the team show has to go to one man more than any other - Mick McCarthy. He may have flaws but you always know that he will never accept less than 100%. iId love to have seen how Mick would have handled some of the wasters we've had down here over the years.

    We have a centre back at right back.
    centre forward at left back.
    right back in centre mid.
    left back at left mid...

    Sounds like we could make that into a song, to the tune of 'The Adams Family' ;)

    As we're sharing a bit of praise for MM. What I find encouraging about this year is that MM has seemed to take on the previous experiences and failings, last year in particular, and learned from them. He seems less prone to sticking with none performing players and more flexible in his general strategy. Obviously helps when the team as a whole are performing to a higher standard.
    It has been said before that MM is too subborn and incapable of learning from errors or worse that he just hasn't any nouse, I think that this year he's proving that to be b****cks!

    With players willing to play wherever or whenever they can and 3 players coming off with concussion, a broken nose and one needing stitches in last nights game shows we can battle it out with anyone.

    I agree entirely. If you look at this season compared to last the argument that he doesn't learn from his mistakes simply won't stand up to scrutiny.

    And possibly not the character.

    I don't want to malign the Watford players not knowing the team that well, but after last nights game, the depth of the Wolves' character has become evident.

    Ikeme is the goalie
    The right back's Kevin Foley
    Mancienne's the loanee
    McCarthy's family...

    Our left back is a forward
    Big Chris gets on the scoreboard
    Kightly gets some more scored
    McCarthy's Family...

    With Henry as the skipper
    Matt Jarvis getting quicker
    The wins are coming thicker
    McCarthy's family...

    Not great...but a good tune suggestion from OCD.

    Get the chant started Chiswick. Alternatively PM Nokasplace.
     
  15. Totally agree with the sentiment of the thread. God knows we've had some overpaid bottle jobs on our books over the years, but I've got nothing but admiration for the current crop. Even the ones I don't necessarily see as good enough long term (and that figure is at it's lowest in my wolves supporting career I should think) are nothing if not full of heart and endeavour.

    Delighted for Collins to get rave review's last night, he's obviously an excellent character round the place and he undeniably has a role to play in a division this physical. I think Mancienne needs to come in against Blues because their strike force is based much more on cunning than physicality, but it's essential that your squad players come in and wear the shirt with as much pride as the starting 11 and every player this season has done that.

    Absolutely stunning result at Dull Blades, Mick McCarthy has only got one leg but he knows how to stand on it and get a result.

    Come on Wolves

    Sorry Noka.

    I was worried against Blackpool that we might slip up and drop two points because i knew there was a good chance we might not get any points last night or on saturday. Im pleasantly surprised at the battling defending shown last night against the thugs of this division and that result is simply fantastic. It gives me hope that we can get a result against Blues because im pretty sure they will raise their game against us and they have some quality individuals.
    I don't think it matters if we believe in the team anymore, because they clearly believe in themselves and compete as a unit.

    Hopefully I wont get a chance to get a word in on Saturday!!!

    Yes I did start the "middle bit" on Saturday and in my defence I only do it because it gets everybody on their feet :)

    Really looking forward to Saturdays match - lets give it to em good and proper lads.

    Remember Cameron Jeromes "slit throat" gesture at us as he scored the 3rd in their last win........ I havent forgotton - hope the Wolves players havent either!

    I do like Chiswick's chant but considering the tune is also used to berate our inbred friends down the road

    Your Sister is your Mother
    Your Father is your Brother
    You all ... one another
    The Boggie family (or words to that effect)

    I'm a little unsure now about it.
