Mick has been getting some stick lately but he played his cards brilliantly in the much-needed win against Sunderland.

Wolves played well, as usual, but found themselves a goal down, as usual, as the final whistle approached. The manager responded decisively and his two substitutes brought about the victory.

I’ve narrowed our problems on the pitch down to two areas – attack and defence.
It really is that bad at the moment at Wolves.
We’re failing to put away our chances and we’re leaking goals.
No amount of praise for our hard work or quality of our football is going to save us.
We simply need to shore up the defence and start hitting the back of the net or we’re down.

I was born, brought up and live in England, I take great pride from the fact that my team plays in the best league in the world, the Premier League, and I love to see any English club team beat the best from the rest of Europe. But I don’t support this country at football any more.

This season, Matt Jarvis has been the best left-winger available to Fabio Capello . . . fact.
The international team boss included him in the provisional squad but then on Saturday omitted him from the final group to face France in the forthcoming friendly.

Arsenal had another player sent off on Sunday making it four red cards for the season – the joint worst in the league.
They share the dishonour with West Bromwich Albion.
In terms of yellow cards, Manchester City are the worst offenders in the league with 25 of them.
Arsene Wenger’s team have picked up 23 - one less than Wolves.
I’m tired of talking about discipline but I just want to bring a close to the whole sorry saga with one final post addressing the issue.

Is there a more destructive winger in the league right now than Matt Jarvis? I can only think of Gareth Bale, who is repeatedly skinning full-backs with pace and skill and supplying killer balls in to the box.

This guy is the best left winger available to Fabio Capello and it’ll be a farce if he is overlooked for the England squad.
