Wolves 0 MK Dons 2

Karl Robinson described his side’s performance as ‘perfect’ in the aftermath of just their second away win of the season.

Wolves Mk Dons

Looking at it objectively, I can just about see his point.

After absorbing all the huff and puff Wolves could muster in the first twenty minutes, the Dons suddenly started swinging.

And where so many jobbing League One strikers have faltered, Chelsea’s Patrick Bamford was absolute, superbly dispatching the only clear opportunity he was presented all afternoon.

Like too many performance of late, Wolves were guilty of trying to walk the ball in, advancing neatly at times, but struggling to find that decisive yard of space to register a clean strike.

Bakary Sako finally broke the shackles just before the break, but when his cross to Leigh Griffiths was blocked with the goal seemingly at their mercy, the afternoon drifted away.

Yet, removing Sako and Griffiths at the interval was a massive error of judgment on the part of the manager. Neither were at their best, but the mere presence of these players on the pitch puts opposition on the back foot.

Without them, MK Dons simply pinned Wolves back and smothered the game. It was all painfully routine.

Goals from distance are usually a sign it’s not your day and Ben Reeves fine strike right at the start of the second half was curtains as far as any comeback was concerned.

Liam McAlinden offered token resistance, hanging on the shoulder of the last defender and hitting two fierce strikes goalwards. On another day, he might have salvaged something.

Doyle, Jacobs and Henry all flattered with the occasional touch of creativity, but none ever looked likely to trouble the opposition goal. They must all do better in that respect.

Two defeats in a row shouldn’t be cause for panic and flippant conclusions, but probably for the first time this season, the character of the team is being examined.

And from what we saw yesterday, it’s less than perfect.

    Well I got the score right just sadly it was the other way around !!!!

    Not impressed at the score or the performance but let’s hope they pick themselves up & bring back a result next week. With the rest of the pack breathing down our necks we need to stay on top & pick up the pace.

    Let’s keep positive & get a good solid result against Rotherham.

    Lack of appetite and hunger doesn’t bode particularly well for the rest of the season.
    That’s the reason we got the new faces and youngsters into the team and kicked the dead wood out.
    This is going to test Kuddly Ken’s man motivational skills to the limit.
    When players who are not even sure of their place in the team start freewheeling, we could have a major problem.
    We shouldn’t start panicking just yet but the next couple of games could prove pivotal to our chances of automatic promotion.

    Come on Kenny – give them a kick up the backside and get it sorted!

    • Couldn’t agree more, Mcdonald, Henry , Doyle, Griffiths and Sako all went missing yesterday, the only player who could say he put a shift in was Edwards, he won most of the second balls and put a foot in all over the park – one man wasn’t enough.
      Totally agree with Thomas about the substitutions, at half time I was expecting Sako to come off, three half chances and not one any where near the target. However Maclinden for Griffiths, I know he is a young prospect but he was not an alternative for Griffiths, too lightweight.
      As Doogooder says a massive kick up the arse is required, if that does not work for the Christmas programme, the loan market or transfer window may be required.
      ps we have an ex striker out of contract who would eat this division up – the old Wolves no 9!

  3. Well done for rousing yourself to do a blog mate. I was about to volunteer myself to do one, honest!
    I’m a bit surprised you didn’t mention a quite majestic performance from Darren Potter in midfield (aided by Stephen Gleeson alongside?)
    He reduced David Edwards to the bereft midfielder we’ve seen for so many years.
    Potter, a guy surplus to requirements in 2007, playing in a different paridigm to our lot, nnevr wasting a pass, with more time on the ball than David Warner down under.
    I can’t muster up a more appropriate commentary on the spectacle than this.

    Hunger comes from competition. Kenny has been horribly let down again by not being supported. How can you tell Griffiths or Sako to put in more energy if there is no leverage. Now they know – as we all know – that there is no body KJ can bring on to replace them that doesn’t in fact weaken the team. So they can put two fingers up to his plea to work harder. Another manager without support.

  6. I agree with the poor judgement in substituting Sako & Griffiths at half-time both, although not perfect, are our most dangerous and potent goal threats.

    Appetite & desire agree as well but the ball just did not run for Wolves yesterday, maybe thats the way we play I don’t know, but it seemed that every loose ball, bounced to them.

    We did not deal with them pressuring us on the ball, and allowed them too much space. Doyle had three men on him when he had the ball, but I just wish he’d get it out of his feet & pass to someone in space. It seems our players do not play well off the ball, never seeing space & bunching up.

    Its so tight with our play sometimes another millimetre & the ball is in touch. Truly dispiriting performance that. McDonalds out at Rotherham I thinks so maybe Davis & Edwards in centre mids can work something?

    This will test Jackett’s mettle & skills, as promotion is a must this season. Failure is unthinkable for the club.

    On another note cannot quite believe the Baggies have sacked Clarke, are they trying to emulate us? Or have the stakes for Premiership survival now become so immense that a few defeats & you’re out?

      Completely agree with you about Clarke.
      It’s the old ‘Delusions of grandeur’ story again.
      “He’s taken us as far as he can” is the cry from fans and owners.
      Charlton and Curbishley is another recent example.
      Where are they now?
      They’d sell their grannies to be back where they were when AC was in charge.
      It’s a sad indictment on the state of football today.

        It’s like when one buy players in Football manager and changes things around – and everything falls apart, the team gets a dip in form, for a long time. Let’s hope it was only a couple of players who had the day off. We have a lot of good players which is best suited playing in a direct style strategy. I would also consider playing Sako in the Doyle role with Ismail on the left wing.

        • Can’t agree with point you make about Sako’s position, he cannot head the ball period. Doyle is not the tallest but he gets a good share of the ball when Ikeme pumps it long. It would rebound off Sako, Doyle’s close contol from chest to foot is second to none. He’s had to do it a lot at Wolves!

          I think keep Sako on the left, he is a threat there. He was at fault defensively yesterday for their first goal, so I think KJ took him off in part for that, he passed the ball to Carruthers who passed for Bamford to score.

          I also thought MK Dons meted out a lot of rough treatment yesterday, McAlinden for one was hit when he as about to win a ball & go past his defender, & Doyle is grappled ad nauseum. These are the professional fouls no ref gives. Indeed the picture of Griffiths in the pic above was him being bundled into the net by their keeper at a corner.

          Ismail just has’nt proved he’s got what it takes. I think the starting 11 yesterday is our strongest 11. My only niggle is that Goldbourne seems to slow the play down every time he gets it in a forward position, if only he’d push on & dash for the corner flag & cross!

          Hopefully Doherty, who we miss a lot, is back next weekend, cos then I’d play Ricketts at left back & move Goldbourne to the bench.

            It’s a fact that Sako can cover that position. Maybe Doyle is better on the head, but is it really a target man role he’s meant to play? Sako might win fewer balls in the air, so the other players would have to keep the ball down on the pitch – which is what we want? He’s much better with the ball in the feet, and a much bigger goaltreat in the right positions. I imagine the combination Mcdonald – Sako – Griffiths or Sigurdarson to be exeptional fruitful. Mcdonald’s passking skills would feed Sako and Griffiths with ammo so they could do their magic. If not Ismail plays good enough we could just bring on Jacobs. Doyle hasn’t delivered for a while and needs a rest. Let’s freshen up with Sako in the middle :) up the wolves

  10. We have a major problem with the way the club is run.
    Football does not seem the priority for M&M and it filters down to the players.
    I think Sako, Sigurdarson and Doyle may go in January and I don’t think Griffiths is enjoying playing for us like he did for Hibs. I don’t have much faith in Jackett either. Considering the players, support etc that we have a 0-2 defeat by MKDons is pathetic. From the moment Morgan took over it has been down hill for Wolves and the best we can hope for,imo, under his stewardship, is mid table championship obscurity…..

    If we had to be honest, we had the run of the luck in so many matches. Matches we should have drew or even lost and yet we won. Rarely did we dominate any of the teams we beat. We need to be assertive and learn how to dominate teams. A creative midfielder and a striker are a must or the best we could hope for are the play offs. Christmas period is crucial , so many matches in so little time. Let us hope that our experienced squad will get us through and we are still at least in the top 2 come January.

  12. A reckless decision to take off Sako and Griff which in hindsight is unfathomable. 1-0 down and a huge bulk of our goals taken off the pitch. KJ has already shown he is unafraid to make brave decisions but it’s often said there is a fine line between being brave and stupid. Tough game away at Rotherham to come next. It’s right to say it’s not time to panic but suddenly promotion doesn’t seem so certain.

  13. In years gone by I’ve been known to call home from holidays to have someone place the phone next to the radio so that I could follow Wolves games. The fact that I’ve stopped bothering to even listen to the radio commentary tells a sorry tale. We may be near the top of the table but there has been very little in the way of entertainment this season. I’m a bit baffled as to why Griffiths is repeatedly omitted/withdrawn. I’ve not checked the stats, but it feels like we all might as well pack up and go home when he’s not on the pitch. KJ’s signings have been good but it’s still not coming together on the pitch. I know SEB’s contract ran out and two diminutive strikers is not the answer but I’d take SEB over Doyle and day of the week. I’m sure Griffiths would score even more goals if he had another prolific goalscorer alongside him. Worryingly, KJ’s faith in Doyle appears to be blinding him to the possibility that we could be so much better. In that respect, I’m getting more than a disconcerting hint of deja vu.

      I agree entirely about Griffiths. He can’t be left on his own without service. Much as I like Kevin Doyle, he’s becoming something of a luxury in the team when they desperately need to score goals. Perhaps McAlinden should start if they don’t bring in another striker, he seems a better prospect than Cassidy. Or could Siggy’s career be revived before it’s too late? Surely with his pace and strength goals will follow.

      It was definitely the wrong decision to take Griffiths off. He’s always likely to score but he can’t guarantee when it will be.

      I thought the whole team looked lethargic yesterday. Considering we played with wingers throughout, how many times did any of them get to the byeline and cross the ball? most of the time they prefer to cut into the middle and try to score a stunning goal, especially James Henry. Maybe he isn’t as good as he thinks he is.

      The atmosphere went as flat as a pancake once they got their second goal. our two matchwinners had been removed and we seemed incapable of offering any threat. I’m planning to take two guests on Boxing Day and I hope I won’t regret it!

      By the way I was well pissed off with Bamford celebrating his goal in front of the South Bank. What was all that about?

    Time to take off the rose-coloured glasses. Wolves are a very ordinary side and are second in a crap, if determined, league, by virtue of lots of uninspired scraps. Far too often outplayed by better sides from smaller clubs. We should have strolled League 1, given the clubs resources and fan base, but once again we suffer from a commitment to do so, getting players on loan or on the cheap. And what happens if we miss the promotion boat, which is a distinct possibility ?
    Time to ship out the players that ain’t gonna make it, Elokobi, Edwards, Siggy etc and get some proven quality.

    Well, the luck has finally run out.
    We have picked up 3points from some games, where we didn’t deserve 1… Big mistake not using the transfer market…. The best time to strengthen is when the team is doing well.
    Doyle has to get out of his comfort zone, and do what he his paid to do, score goals, no wonder he wants to stay with wolves, he had got it so easy, after all Macalindon and Cassidy is never going to get the goals we need
    We need some quality loan signings when the window opens, but I fear it will be like every transfer window….. Nothing

  16. Do we persevere with Siggy who has all the attributes to be a top striker or do we go the cheque book route? Why was there no hunger in the team? This is a pivotal moment(yet another) in our season and future, hope KJ has the bottle,the know how and the backing to get us through this. Man who would be a Wolves supporter, I’m sure it’s taken years off my life!

      Not sure why Siggy isn’t getting a fair crack. Lots of pace and the physical strength to frighten defenders. He has the potential but if he is to realise it he must have game time. At the weekend he wasn’t even in the squad. He appears to have dropped below Cassidy and now McAlinden in the peckng order. I think we might lose him in January or at the end of the season.

      No JO’H in the squad these days either. We were told it was due to a lack of match fitness but again, if you don’t play matches how do you get match fit? Has he become less ft than when he was getting selected – if so then we need a new fitness coach.

      • I think it’s down to money Steppenwolf.
        My hunch is that Ziggy has been ‘sold’ already (January) to Copenhagen by M&M.
        He will not play again as a result of this, as he must stay injury free, for the deal to be completed.
        People are talking about buying good players to strengthen the squad.
        The problem is that under the present set up, what good footballer is going to want to come and play for Wolves?

  17. Gotta agree with you Thomas,i think KJ made a huge mistake in taking Griffo and sako off at half time.saying that Griffo did miss a couple of sitters but I thought sako was doing ok he was the danger man,perhaps KJ took him off just in case he got another booking he was a bit wound up and I thought Robinson got sako the booking the wanker.
    As other bloggers have said our luck seems to have ran out on us of late or is it that other teams are now how to play against us especially at the mol.
    With Christmas looming and plenty of games coming fast we must be a bit more ruthless in front of goal if we want to stay in the top two because if we become complacent then we will fall away and that won’t do KJ.get it sorted now.
    When I mentioned SEB the other day I thought I would have had a bit of stick off our fellow bloggers,but I didn’t so I’m saying it again.why not sign SEB on a short contract or something.UTW.

    I disagree about Sako and Griffiths. They weren’t doing it and their combined miss at the end of the first half showed they weren’t going to. I have no issue with hauling them off and hopefully it will give the kick up the proverbial they so clearly need.

    There is a major problem with how we play. We’re constantly hoofing it long and asking Griffiths and Doyle to win headers against central defenders who are a foot taller than them. But I still don’t think we have the players in midfield to play the fabled passing game which has been promised to us since Solbakken.

    Teams have figured us out and we could be in big trouble come January if a major corner isn’t turned soon. I am going to Rotherham next week and am seriously hoping for a lot better than yesterday’s dross.

      Nail on the head Nicko. Griffiths will score goals with decent service but needs a strike partner to lead the line for him. However, we’re not playing to Doyle or Griffiths strenghts by lumping it up to their heads when they’re being marked by the sort of 6ft4 beasts that play in this league. As for Doyle, the man is neither use nor ornament at the moment. His primary tactic is to throw himself to the floor as soon as anyone comes near him. Once the ref susses this out and he actually has to get on the ball, his first touch consistently takes him on the furthest possible route away from goal. I for one have had enough of him, his pretend effort and his obscene wages. I also totally disagree with the notion that siggy is somehow the answer and hasn’t been given a chance. He’s been given plenty under several managers, in several positions and has consistently not taken them. Conclusion: he is not good enough. Give Mcalinden a go for now then the fat bloke and the scouser must put their hand in their pockets.

  19. The facts are simple guys. We are not scoring goals and that is all that can be said on this matter.
    Let’s say M and M sell Sako for some ridiculous amount of money. Will they spend it on players? or just reduce the the debt level. The latter I think, after all how many good players want to play in the 3rd division. I posted on the match Blog a few weeks ago ” That unless we start to score goals, the teams below us would be biting at our heels”., and guess what they are now taking chunkes out of em !!! Lets just keep our fingers crossed that it all sorts it’s self out before it’s too late . These players are paid enough to sort things. Happy Christmas to one and all and a better New Year.

  21. As a strategy we have put a lot of faith and money into the academy. What worries me is that too many promising youngsters just dont make the grade at there parent club. Often these players just dont physically mature quickly enough to make a lasting impact. I have long thought football could learn from other sports and perhaps have a fitness coach say grounded in athletics. Anyway just a thought if Threadbarewell could solve this one he would be earning his corn !

    Griffiths and doyles both best position is behind a big target man, who can hold the ball up, and play them in. The target man is the hardest, most hortible job on the pitch and to be good at it is very diificult. Griffiths is NOT this type of player and is playing out of position. We will never see the best of griffiths at wolves unless he plays off a target man. Doyle does a whole lot of nothing. I love his attitude, but he doesnt score enough goals or set up enough goals. I would sell doyle and use the money for a target man.

    • It seems to me that Jackett has the luxury of so many strikers and wingers that he’s tinkering with them from match to match and during matches so that none of them can have any confidence any more.
      Siggy has not really been given a proper run as a striker – starting and given the encouragement a young player needs to bring out his best.. I’m not sure that Jackett is a good man manager after all. There must be a lot of players in the squad disappointed over the first half of the season to have been in and out of the team and not even knowing if they’ll be in the eighteen. I wouldn’t blame Siggy if he found another club where he can play 90 mins every week. Sako is obviously not pleased to have been denied the chance to go when he wanted to, and Griffiths character is being sorely tested being taken off so often.
      Although our position is fine, the form table must be telling a different story, and we’re lucky that those around us have been faltering.
      Anyway, we seem often not to do well after a break so let’s hope this can be put behind us and we get a good result at Rotherham.

    Obviously the two week break didn’t suit the squad, they played like there had been three matches in ten days rather than over a fortnight without a game. The striker situation has become a serious concern with Griff and Sako out of form, Cassidy lacking confidence, Siggy out of favour, Doyle not looking like he will ever score and now McAlinden will not be sure be if he will play again or not. Strikers thrive on confidence and not knowing if you’re in the starting 11 or not doesn’t increase confidence; it seems KJ isn’t sure who to play either which is more concerning. Yesterday Wolves didn’t play good football, did not entertain and there was no atmosphere at the Mol. As what seemed the whole row in the Cullis Upper sat with their arms folded, it certainly seemed like the clock had turned back twelve months.

  30. Reality is that we were once again outplayed by a 3rd Division team at home. Only this time our Luck ran out.
    I keep hearing Jackett say there is competition for places and that is good.
    Well after 2 defeats on the bounce I expect to see some of that competition for the next game, however I fear we wont.
    Jacobs and Henry are too alike to play in the same team it has to be one or the other.
    Just what has Ismail done to be frozen out..
    If Griffiths doesn’t score neither MacLinden or Cassidy will..
    Doyle is nothing more than an attacking midfielder with no goals in him and Sako… Sell him while you can.

    So Mr Jackett over to you lets see some of this competition for places that is so good….?

    PS I was not happy as a season ticket holder to find myself sitting next to 4 MK Dons fans either…

    If there is a lack of appetite then KJ needs to do something about it, and fast. What’s not for our players to ‘want?’
    They only have to focus on the league, and should be desperate to win it (which we can).
    If the team who have failed in the last 2 games aren’t showing appetite, then bring in the reserves and give them a chance.

    Milton Keynes reminded me of Swansea, pace everywhere, no real wingers, but mobile, nimble footed players, always moving off the ball and making themselves available in space for a pass. They’ve been putting their side together over several seasons, we just don`t have the luxury of time.
    The strange thing is, we could have been two or three up before they scored, Griffiths totally miskicking when our left back played him in, then again when Sako played him in, a superb block was made by a defender who came from nowhere. Against that kind of opposition playing at the top of their game, Sako is a misfit, and Griffith too lightweight. I`m not sure whether it was their ineffectiveness or poor play which had them substituted. I can understand getting the changes, getting more mobility, numbers and movement into our midfield was an option which the manager took.
    I also agree with earlier comments about our youngsters, not many in the side, MM didn`t rate any of them, are they really up to the job, very little evidence too date I`m afraid, which explains why Sako stayed, and the loan signings may become permanent.
    See everyone at Rotherham on Saturday. I see we`ll need a different midfield as big mac is out with 5 bookings mmmm…..

    Saturday is our biggest game of the season, if not for some time. Our form at home is patchy so despite recent results a draw looks likely. Our new stadium will be full to the rafters, atmosphere should be great can’t wait.
