McCarthy tries to keep Wolves from the door

WOLVES boss Mick McCarthy expects speculation over his future to continue after branding his side's performance "unacceptable" in the 3-0 home defeat by Liverpool.

Wanderers have now gone nine league games without a win - a run from which they have collected just four points - and there were boos at the final whistle.

McCarthy said: "After the last home game (against Aston Villa) there were huge rumours that I wouldn't be here.

"I can't imagine there will be any less after this game. We will see. I can hear what the fans are saying and I fully understand it. It was an unacceptable performance from us in the second half and watching that was unacceptable for me or anybody else.

"That's as bad a performance as we've had here or away. Fans pay good money to come and watch and they expect better and I understand that.

"If I had been watching, I'd have probably responded like that as well."

McCarthy added: "The lads are hurting, there are none of them that have come and not tried.

"But once we've conceded, we've gone on to be beaten by a considerably better side who have just beaten Manchester City and Manchester United.

"If you give them goals then it becomes hard work but I understand people's reactions."
