Wolves at the door.

Today sees the visit of tabletoppers Wolves to the Ricoh and like with Hull last season they seem to be succeeding with a mixture of football and hoofball. That is not criticizing them but complimenting them for having the ability to change their style to match the opposition.

Over the years we have had many fine games against Wolves and I'm sure many of us oldun' have memories of ATV football on a Sunday afternoon with Hugh Johns and Gary Newbon. We have exchanged many players over the years too with big Cyrille, Wee Willie Carr and the legend Keano. Its quite tronic that we should be meeting the same week Keano returns to Spurs admist many experts saying he can only play for smaller clubs. I think both Wolves and City fans would welcome him back with open arms.

We both have been active in the window with defenders being the main targets. Wolves have the best striking partnership in the country but they concede far too many goals. They had to see their loanee return to Chelsea but this week brouught in Berra from Scotland. Their main threat comes from out wide and Kightley, who is facing a late fitness test, will be their main weapon. Let's hope McCarthy rests him in such terribla conditions.

We too welcome an import from north of the border in the shape of Mcpake. People will say Wolves are splashing 2 plus million on a player but ours cost peanuts but thats unfair. By all accounts Mcpake has a wonderful reputation in Scotland and if he is like many of his countrymen could also bring much needed leadership to the team. Clinton has been a great deputy but I believe captains should be centrebacks because of their location on the park. We also welcome Henderson and Bell for their home debuts but its rather sad that the first time we have wide players on the field frozen conditions may stop them from performing to the best of their abilities.

I believe this game may end up being played down the middle of the park and although we now have wingers a 4-3-3 may be more realistic. Can wide men play in such conditions? I know the fans want it and so do the teams but the weather may stop that from happening.

If all goes well I seea keenly fought game that is maybe too important to both teams to really have an entertaining game and I see the odd goal seperating the teams.
