Wolves have developed a habit of snatching failure from the jaws of success. Forget bad luck or poor decisions, the fact is that we are conceding late goals every week. We are now one point behind what should be our minimum target of 38 points from 38 games.

But the margin between joy and disappointment is so thin in the Premier League that if the referee had blown for full time after 87 minutes in each of the last three games, we would now have eight points from six games instead of five.

I’m ashamed to be a Wolves supporter right now. Idiots bombarded Notts County fans’ coaches with bricks following the League Cup match last night.

Last week I argued that we were an honest team on the pitch and it was a view echoed by most fans and managers around the country in the media. Then we won plaudits at the weekend for the quality of our football against Spurs.

Finally, we came through a disappointing performance last night to book our place in the last 16 of the cup. All that and our own fans bring disgrace on the club in one act of stupidity.

Zamora got a broken leg and Wolves got a reputation for foul play at the weekend. Neither was deserved.

What was fair was the result. Fulham outplayed us at Craven Cottage. A last minute winner hurts but you can accept it when you are second best. Jeers about being a disgrace to the league hurt too. Those I can’t accept.

The Premier League clubs named their 25-man squads this week in line with the new rules about quotas of home grown players. What a waste of time!

Some of the squad lists make an absolute mockery of the system which was set up to encourage the use of more home-grown players with the long term aim of helping the development of the English national side.
