It was sad that the biggest cheer at Molineux on Saturday came when the stadium announcer announced that Karl Henry was being withdrawn. I'm totally against supporters making examples of specific players on their own team when they show their discontent.
Karl had a bad game, awful in fact, and it was the right decision to haul him off. But to give ironic cheers when his number is put up is counterproductive. If his confidence is battered how will he improve?
All that said, I think he should be dropped for a run of poor performances.
Unlike a lot of Wolves fans, I am a fan of Karl. Although his ability is limited he always works hard and never shirks a challenge. All teams need an enforcer and he is always willing to be ours. That said though, he hasn't had a good game in weeks.
While the work-rate has been there as usual he has given the ball away too often, his defensive headers haven't been powerful enough and he has been either outmuscled (eg Barton) or outclassed (eg Cabaye).
When Guedioura came on against Newcastle, the midfield battle started to swing in our favour. Unlike Henry he can drive forward with the ball at his feet. He can also pass and isn't afraid to put in a firm tackle.
I think if we're playing 4-4-2 then it's too much responsibility for O'Hara to carry the whole attack through the centre of the park. Guedioura can take on some of that workload without giving up too much of the hard tackling that Henry can bring to the team.
So it's Tesco for us next and I'd like to see Henry on the bench for that one if we're going to stick with two up front. If we build a lead then he would be a good option to come on and protect it late on in the game.
There's a place for hard-working and committed players like Karl at Wolves and it angers me when our fans disrespect him. I'm not saying he's a world-beater or should even be in the first 11. He just shouldn't be singled out for mistreatment.
If I was going to boo Karl on Saturday then I would have also have had to hurl abuse at Doyle (too many duff shots), Jarvis (consistently poor delivery), O'Hara (too one-footed) and Hunt (absent). I never would though because I recognise that in the next game they will be required to give their all for the cause. They will only do that if they feel valued by the people they are playing for.
I'm sure there will be a lot of talk about the refereeing decisions this weekend. Yes O'Hara was fouled in the box and the free kick was given a yard away outside. And yes Doyle scored a perfectly legitimate equaliser at the death. We could moan about that, but what good will it do? We lost because we were second best in goal, defence, midfield and attack.
A change is needed Mick and you've got my suggestion.
