McCarthy: We'll Park The Bus At Old Trafford

McCarthy: We'll Park The Bus At Old Trafford

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.

Parking the bus eh? Will they be bringing a picnic hamper and blanket too? Everyone knows that showing manure respect is the way to get a hiding. Get in amongst them and you have a chance of beating them, but sit back and defend...

sitting back and defending works pretty well against united these days. Villa did it for most of the match, i remember Sunderland doing it last season and they almost got away with a draw, in fact we all our one nil wins last season were because teams decided to sit back and defend.

Yep, attacking and pressing United can work - but only if the opposition's got the players to do it. Wolves don't: if they come out to play open football at Old Trafford they will be murdered. And United ARE struggling to break down well-organised defences this season, it's no wonder we play better football away from home. Our best performance of the season? Spurs away and they have quality players and decided to have a real go at us. They were found out horribly.

I'm sure we will win but they're going to make us work for it.

10 outfield changes for Wolves eh? Dangerous precedent. Does it mean half a dozen clubs at the low end of PL hand the points to Chelsea and Man U each season? Then again, since when have these two clubs been concerned about the game's future? Too busy sucking Sky's cock.
