    and is doing very well. As are Ward and Hunt. Doyle not at the races. Had an excellent chance to score shortly after the 1st goal but just messed it up. Not sure what he was playing at actually.

    That was a bit awkward for Doyle but I still though he should've done better and then he shot when he should've pulled it back to Henry. Apparently Wolves looked a completely different team in the second half which is when I tuned in.

    Doherty was a definite improvement on Stearman, who was caught miles out of position on several occasions. I think he was bamboozled by the wingers and Suarez a couple of times but he's hardly the only one who will be this season. He definitely wasn't overwhelmed. I think he'll start the next game if Foley doesn't recover.

    Doherty did very well by all accounts and with any luck will be in ahead of Stearman, who has been woeful in the last two games, against Newcastle on Saturday.

    He's meant to be a Big Lad who gets up the line well, so fits with Traps love for tall fullbacks and obviously is very highly rated considering that McCarthy has hardly given any young kids a chance, preferring them to have 50-100 games experience on loan, similar to his buying policy.

    A few comments on him below.

    On another note Wardy played well as well, however Doyler simply doesn't look with it at the momment. His body language looks completely disinterested and verging on sullen. He may have an injury, however I have a worry that his head has been turned by potential transfer talk. Irrespective, he needs to concentrate on scoring goals, which he hasn't done effectively for the past season and a half, as this is the only thing that will get him the move he appears to desire. Especially as it is more than likely that he will be dropped for Fletcher, who is a lot more potent threat these days, if we play 4-5-1 more often. His loss of form is a big worry at the moment.

    I dont think that has anything to do with it, he has also just signed a new contract, what I believe is since the Trap affair(like many players before him), he looks unassured and frustrated. He doesn't look his usual self, his demeanour, body language have even changed. Doyle was always chest out shoulders back kinda guy, I haven't seen any of that since the whole thing with Trap started. I thought the first game back he looked fine, but since the little spat with Trap he has regressed. Doyle appears a fairly shy, unassuming player, probably one who needs re-assuring rather than being told he has a problem. I really think that has effected him. Using that approach with some players is fine, probably someone like joey barton who would turn the negative into a positive for himself, but someone like Doyler I reckon is far more effected by this, probably questioning himself. Trap I think in general needs to be a little more tactful a littles(yes i meant that) less benitez and more Mick Mccarthy.

    By the same dint, shouldn't Doyle redouble his efforts at club level if that really is the problem? He has a job to do for Wolves, if he's letting a disagreement with Trap make him look sullen and disinterested, he should get his head right. As should any player in that position.

    I'd have Doyle pegged as the kind of player who would return to club level looking to prove Trap completely wrong. He doesn't strike me as a sulker, and never appears particularly shy on the pitch. So not convinced that's the only reason. Either way he'll get back on it like the top striker he is, I'm sure.

    The spat with Trap is tabloid nonsense. Trap's comments were ill-advised (you could say that about a lot of what he says) but he clearly values Doyle immensely and Doyle's not the type of player to get bent out of shape over one disagreement. He's clearly been suffering with a series of niggling injuries and really should have had a rest by now.

    His niggling injuries have nothing to do with how he reacted when taken off in DUblin and Russia. He is clearly not happy and said as much when asked about Trap saying mentally he wasn't right.

    Did people not see his reaction when he came off against Russia? And to a lesser extent against SLovakia?

    Ya agreed on that part SvD, Im not saying its the only factor, but i definitely think there is an element to it.

    Well he deserved to be taken off in those games and Cox improved the team on both occasions when he came on. His frustration was likely with himself.

    Nah!! There was some thinly veiled remarks recorded on radio about it. Not quite outright descent but it was obvious he wasn't happy with trapps comments about his fitness and state of mind.

    Loan move to Hibs arranged at the eleventh hour, so back under the tutelage of P. Fenlon

    http://www.hibernianfc.co.uk/news/20...262950_2595802

    Will probably go straight into the side.

    Roy O'Donovan also gone up there from Coventry.

    Will turn out to be great experience for Doherty. I think Mick really fancies him. Fair play to Nutsy though, he has acquired some decent players over the transfer window. Should be enough to keep them up. Tom Soares could be excellent signing too in my opinion. Could be one of those players who scores for fun in Scotland.
