United host Wolves tonight in the Premier League so what better chance of a cosy little catch-up with Vital Wolves? Enjoy the interview and then proceed to their site to read what I had to say about the game and our season.
1. Are you enjoying your Premier League campaign so far?
Of course, obviously it's difficult and frustrating at times, but you expect to get promoted and switch from winning most games to losing them.
2. This team looks a lot better than your 2004 side - is that so? What are the biggest differences between the two sides?
I think the bottom of the Premier League is a lot closer now, there are more teams involved in the bottom scrap which means the points are shared out more evenly. In regards to our team, I think we potentially have the chance to be more organised and can score more goals, but there is still a long way to go.
3. Do you think Wolves will stay up?
Two games ago I would have said no. We were on a run and it just looked like there was no way out of it. But then two wins on the bounce and that brings back a bit of confidence. It will be hard, but I think we are showing signs of improving and if we have a better second half to the season then we could well be fine.
4. Your best and worst player of the season?
Best player so far Kevin Doyle, his goals have put us where we are. Fantastic signing. Rather than worst, I`d say most disappointing is Sylvan Ebanks-Blake. I really expected him to grab an early goal this season and go on to score 20+, unfortunately he got injured and has stuttered to get going. I`m still sure he has goals in him at this level and will turn good during the second half of the season.
5. If you could choose to have one United player who would you take?
Just one? It would have to be Wayne Rooney, someone who can create something from nothing all on his own.
6. What do you think of United's performances so far?
Disappointing for your lot surely? I know you usually start slowly and build momentum but losing to Villa, Liverpool and Burnley surely isn't acceptable when you are sitting three points behind the leaders?
7. Who will win the league?
I'll completely contradict myself now and say that you will!
8. Who will go down?
Portsmouth, Bolton and Hull.
9. Is Mick McCarthy the right man for you?
We've been asking the same question on our site and still have a poll running. For me, yes he is and currently the majority agree, but feeling is closer than I expected when I first started the poll.
