Wolves Vs Manchester United (0 - 5) On March 18th 2012 by mukina2: 12:46am On Mar 18, 2012
Striker Kevin Doyle insists the Wolves players are hurting as much as the supporters about their current plight as they look to pull off a major upset against Manchester United at Molineux on Sunday.

Wolves went into the weekend lying second from bottom in the Barclays Premier League and the unrest of the fans has boiled over with post-match demonstrations after the games with West Brom and Blackburn.

But Doyle believes Wolves should take heart from the example of Swansea, in defeating Manchester City, and their own defeat of United last season, ahead of the clash with the Red Devils.

The Republic of Ireland international said: "The players feel it just like the fans do and we don't just forget about a game after we've lost.

"It's our job and our profession, our life really, and when it's not going well you can't just go home and forget about it.

"It is great as a footballer when things are going well and the opposite when they are not and it's up to us to put things right.

"We're just as frustrated as the fans are and all we can do is the right things as much as possible.

"Every game is a massive game for us and they have been for most of the season. All we can do is work on things in training to try and improve, which is what we have been doing, and go again on Sunday.

"We have been working hard all season even though sometimes results might not bear that out. We need everyone's support as much as we can because anything we can get to go in our favour will help.''

Doyle believes Wolves may relish being underdogs against Sir Alex Ferguson's side.

He said: "There is still plenty to play for in terms of getting out of trouble and plenty of games where we can get something and we have to start all that on Sunday.

"We seem to play that bit better when we are underdogs. All we can do is try and make the most of that situation and go out and try and cause an upset.''

Ashley Young has had enough of being a nearly man.

In a Manchester United squad containing so many players who have had the winning habit for years, Young is one of the few who have nothing.

The nearest he came to an end of season battle for supremacy was in his Aston Villa days as the midlands club tried to gatecrash those coveted Champions League places.

Three times they were agonisingly close, three times they came up short, finishing sixth on each occasion.

So, now he has swapped Villa Park for Old Trafford, Young has no wish to miss out again.

He said: "So many times that Champions League slot was there and then it just got taken away.

"I have new challenges now. Winning trophies and titles is vitally important for me.

"I have the chance to do that with United.''

It is why the 26-year-old made his £18million move last summer, snubbing interest from Liverpool, amongst others, in the process.

Young could not say he has made a seamless transition, there have been far too many injuries for that.

However, after playing an integral part in United's blistering start to the season, Young is rediscovering his form at just the right time given fellow wide man Nani is sidelined with an ankle injury and Antonio Valencia is still to make his comeback from a strained hamstring.

"I am enjoying every bit of it,'' said Young.

"From the time you sign for a club like United you get that winning mentality.

"Every competition we've entered we have wanted to win and for me personally it is exciting times.

"I said from day one when a club like Manchester United come calling, you don't turn it down. It was a no-brainer.

"It got even more exciting last Sunday, when we found ourselves top of the league.

"We have 10 games left now. We're concentrating on ourselves, like we have done all season and hopefully, by the end, we'll get that 20th title.''

Sunday's trip to a Wolves side in a chaotic state should see United extend their lead over Manchester City to four points.

It is one of the few fixtures Sir Alex Ferguson has taken note of, so aware is he of the dangers that lurk in allowing concentration to wander away from his own side's performances.

"I know they've got some hard games like going to Arsenal, and they've got Chelsea at home next Wednesday, but we've got to take one game at a time,'' Ferguson told MUTV.

"It's the best way. Thinking too far ahead can be a danger, you can get yourself confused.''

u need to be more intelligent than to follow football. We've got priorities, and having qualified authomatically for champs league next season, why flex muscle with anonymous clubs in a less prestigious competition?
Mancity flew to portugal with his best 11 to play lisbon, his best defender and captain, kompany got injured, the rest got fatigued, they lost the match, returned to england and couldnt make 5 complete passes together at Liberty stadium, the rest is history.
Priorities! Its called scale of preference in economics, leading to opurtunity cost cheesy
