Exactly and even though at the time i thought he should be hammered by the F.A. when you think about it he did the correct thing. No way would his team have beat Manure away so whats the point in risking your better players for future matches.

He is still a cock though when you see him getting interviewed.

Thats far from the same as Arse resting some players in preparation for a CL game 2 or 3 days later.

No it's not.

Just don't see why the "big" clubs are allowed to rest players but not the smaller clubs.

Of course they are allowed to - He did!!!

I am saying if it were us, I would be well pissed off. His motives for resting the players was because there is no point in going for anything at Old Trafford, that to me is bad crack!!!

All of the above is completely unrelated to him being a cock mind - He just is a cock.

Sorry - I'll rephrase that then. The "big four" - no, even the likes of Fulham cause they're in Europe - are able to play weakened sides without anybody questioning them. As soon as a smaller club does it, they get criticised.

Wolves reserves were playing well against Man U until a stupid handball gave them a penalty and pretty much ended the game. He didn't "throw" the game, it was still 11 against 11. How come people could expect Wolves' first team to cause an upset, yet their reserves are incapable of causing an upset? The game was still a game they could have won.

I'm quite sure Wolves fans would be quite pissed off if they went to Old Trafford with their first team, lost the match and picked up 2 or 3 injuries and that led them to defeat against Burnley. At least they had a full squad for the "6-pointer" with Burnley. And they won it.

Fair play they did win at home against Burnley, I can appreciate that. But I could never accept turning out a weakened side on that basis. There is still more than half a season to go, so the argument of 'if they picked up 2 or 3 injuries' doesnt really go for me.

It smacks of defeatism, and for that, as a fan, I would be gutted if it were us.

He is also a cock.

As a Newcastle United fan, yes, I would be mortified if my team threw in the towel before a ball was kicked. But this is a small club like Wolves we are talking about here - the Burnley victory totally vindicated McCarthy.

It is not his fault the league is so ridiculously financed that fear of relegation is the prime motivation for 60 % of clubs.

I would say that a recent Newcastle United manager has been hounded out of the club for playing shite sides with overtly negative tactics. Fuck off Allardyce and all his apologists in the media.

Teams do it all the time. The big four are constantly changing their side, but they get away with it because their squad is better, so doesn't look so weak. What gives them the right to chop and change but not Wolves?

We did it in the league cup - ok, it's not quite the same as a Premier League game, but we rested players and "threw away" the chance to win.
