    Matt Doherty

    Former Bohs defender on the bench tonight against Chelsea for Wolves, fourth time making the matchday squad. Anyone know more about him? Apparently he can play anywhere in defense, maybe more of a fullback?

    he is a former Bohs A-team player, played one friendly against Wolves at LB i think and impressed Mick Mc enough to shell out 80k on him. Very little else known about him from all accounts to be honest although im sure if any Bohs fan knows more they will share.

    Great article on him by Greenscene this time last month:
    http://greenscene.me/2010/12/wolves-...-carried-away/

    Here's an interesting quote from it, with what Stu said there, how he never played for Bohs.
    "Amazingly, Doherty never actually played a competitive League of Ireland game for Bohemians. He began his career at Home Farm and then Belvedere before moving to Bohs under-20s and onto the reserves. He then played with the senior team in friendly games, and caught the eye of Mick McCarthy in the club’s friendly with Wolves. However, he does not expect his career to take off overnight, and knows he has to work hard to progress."

    They didn't lose, drew 2-2. Haven't heard much about his performance yet though.
    Ou-est le Centre George Pompidou?

    A solid, if not spectacular performance, from the young lad. Sounds as if he was nervous to start, which is hardly surprising considering his (relatively) meteoric rise, came into the game as it progressed and was meant to have a meaty challenge late on (he's a big lad by the looks of the greenscene picture, so there may be a possibility that he may turn into a centrehalf eventually). I don't think that he was helped by not having an experienced centreback to guide him with Stearman having another mare, however dare say Craddock will give him better guidance when he is back.

    Ratings from Molineux Mix

    Doherty 6 - Not a bad debut from the lad. Looked a bit nervy at times during the first half but wasnt helped from time to time by the centre backs giving him harder work than needed doing. Solid if unspectacular but not quite ready for the premier league from this showing.

    Doherty very nervous anf gave his man too much space. Grew as the game wore on.

    Doherty did OK but seemed apprehensive and reluctant to play any long balls- think he tried one cross during the whole match.

    Doherty - positionally looked lost from time to time - particularly in the first half, but steadied and put in one lovely full bloodied challenge late on

    Incidentally, Hunt was meant to have his best game in a Wolves shirt, he appears to be growing into the team following his good game against Chelsea.

    Bagged a brace against West Ham reserves tonight, maybe Mick should try him up front.

    Started and played the 90 in the Cup game V Northampton tonight, a 4-0 win, and a positive report on his performance here, still unclear if he played RB or CB but it looks like he had an assist for his sides fourth from a cross so maybe RB.

    Winger Anthony Forde, who was in the same U19s team as Doherty, also made his debut.

    Played well by all accounts. Forde wasn't given long enough to make an effect, however scotred in tonights reserve game and is obviously highly rated:

    Neat and tidy. Couple of mistakes that show he's still a raw player but did well and got forward when he could.

    Defence was solid with all 4 doing what they needed to.

    Doherty and Reckord looked ok, certainly didn't look out of their depth, but they're not ready for a PL step-up yet

    The young lad at right back (43 - his name escaped me) had a good game.

    He's signed a new three-year deal. Fans seem to be impressed by him.
