I rather like Mick McCarthy. I would be extremely hesitant to admit it in the presence of a certain Mr. Keane but any McCarthy comment in the media is worth reading and he was refreshingly open with his thoughts on his Wolves side's upcoming game at Old Trafford.
He reckons the United players will be delighted to put things right after the sickening defeat to Villa on Saturday and prmoised that Wolves will not make it easier for the hosts.
'They must be rubbing their hands together to be playing Wolves at home.'
'They must be thinking 'Wolves are coming and we have just been beaten by Villa... If ever there is a chance to get yourself back on track it is to slap these insolent little so and sos coming up from the Black Country and we are going to give them the biggest doing they have ever had'. I would be thinking that if I was a Manchester United player.
'I would be rubbing my hands with glee that we were coming up. Go and have a look at the bookmakers and see what they are saying. They are not stupid. There are no skint ones.
'Our lads who are playing will be wanting to win the game. But we will not be going and chasing it and playing free open and expansive football because if we do they will beat us. Let's clear that up.
'We will be cautious and disciplined like we were at Tottenham.'
Basically, he promised they would park the bus. Nothing wrong with that and hardly unexpected either. And yes, hosting a newly promoted team days after a defeat is an opportunity from heaven to put things right and ease the concerns - and I very much hope that McCarthy is right about our players. That they really want to 'give them the biggest doing they have ever had'. Not because I have any problem with Wolves, of course, but because we need a confidence boost.
