McCarthy To Be Fed To The Wolves?

Richard Smith by Richard Smith / 01 December 2009, 10:04

Mick McCarthy is starting to feel the pressure at Molineux this week after the team slipped to a 1-0 defeat to local rivals Birmingham on Sunday, Wolves came up as Champions last season and were perceived by many to be the best equipped of all the promoted teams to stay in the top flight. However, things have not worked out for Mick McCarthy and the team so far as they have been ravaged by injury and have slipped down the table following three poor results, they are now staring a relegation battle in the face and their fans are growing increasingly concerned at the tams plight.

The home defeat to Birmingham City was a worrying result for McCarthy as the side produced a limp performance against a team who they comfortably dispatched in the Championship last campaign, the lack of goals being scored by the team is the real concern for McCarthy with players not performing at this level. Sylvan Ebanks-Blake was the top scorer in the Championship last season and appeared to have all the attributes to succeed in the top flight but he just simply has not produced the goods, he has had one or two injuries which have disrupted his season and cannot seem to get in a good rhythm.

The defeat to Birmingham followed a couple of thrashings from Arsenal and Chelsea and the Next Premier League Manager to be Sacked odds are now showing Mick McCarthy to be in a precarious position at Molineux. A couple of weeks ago McCarthy was as safe as houses, but with the team stuttering there are now odds of 11/1 about him being the next Premier League Manager to be given the boot. The fans have been on the Managers side so far this term after their fantastic promotion season but they may well turn on him if results continue to slide, December could be vital for the former Sunderland Manager with a busy fixture list likely to make or break both his future as well as the team's Premier League future.

One of the problems for McCarthy is the success of the other two promoted teams this season in the Premier league, both Birmingham and Burnley who on paper looked weaker than Wolves are sitting pretty in mid-table while the boys from Molineux are knee deep in a relegation battle to the dismay of their loyal fans.
