A Chat With a Wolf Ahead Of Wednesday
It's a long time (OK, five years) since we've last met Wolves. Now they're back in the Premier League but it's time for a little cup action first: we'll meet them in the Carling Cup tomorrow and the editor of Vital Wolves was kind enough to share his thoughts with us ahead of the game!
1. What do you think of Wolves' performance so far?
Fair to say it has been a mixed bag so far, but mid September and a mid-table position is certainly nothing to grumble about. But it could have been better, which looking forward is a positive thing, even if its frustrating now.
. Who is your most important player?
Ebanks-Blake when fit, without doubt will fire us the goals to keep us in the Premier League.
. Is there a player you'd like to get rid of?
Right now, I don't think there is. There are areas we need to strengthen and then players will become surplus to requirements, but right now we have a balance of potential and first team squad players.
. What do you think of your chances of avoiding relegation?
I remain confident that we have enough to avoid relegation. My confidence took a hit following the result against Blackburn, but the win against Fulham has got me over it fairly quickly!
Mick still needs to work out his best side, I`m not sure he has done that yet, especially up front. Once we settle down more I think we`ll improve.
. Can United win the title for the fourth time in a row?
Any side that loses Tevez and Ronaldo is going to be a weaker side, that said, I think you`ve still got more than enough to take the title and the win against Manchester City must have been pretty sweet?
6. Which United player would you like in your team?
There aren't many I`d turn down to be fair. But Vidic is a cracking defender.
. What do you think about McCarthy's, ahem, 'outspoken' interview about his Premier League record [he talked about how papers always write that he achieved f*** all in the Premier League - his words, folks!]? Personally, I loved it!
Loved it too, football needs characters and Mick certainly falls into that category!
8. What do you expect of Wednesday's game, will you try attacking us as Coventry did with such spectacular success in 2007?
I hope we will put out a strong side rather than rotating and giving others a chance. Usually it would be good to use the squad, but for this game I`d prefer us to really go for it. Ideal chance for Ebanks-Blake to have a run out following his injury.
