Wolves manager Stale Solbakken has said that there is still room for improvement within the club after securing his first win as the Wolves manager. The club appointed Stale Solbakken as a replacement for Terry Connor, who replaced Mick McCarthy midway through last campaign with no great effect.
Due to the terrible spell under Terry Connor, it appeared that the Wolves lacked the confidence necessary to bring an end to the run of games without a league victory. Prior to the match against Barnsley, Wolves had gone to 27 matches with just one league victory. However, the 3-1 win over Barnsley is an important step according to the new manager.
However, he has also said that it is not the end of the road for the club because they also have to improve a lot in order to sustain the success in the forthcoming matches. Wolverhampton Wanderers were expected to get off to a flying start in the Championship season because they retained a lot of their players from the Premier league. Only now have lost the likes of Fletcher and Matt Jarvis to Sunderland and West Ham United respectively. After making crucial signings of the transfer window, the Wolves manager expects the good form to continue.
“I still think we can do better. We have to do more work on the training pitch about when to keep the ball and when to go fast forward and read the climate in the game. It was a little bit ‘wild west’ sometimes but that can happen in the Championship. We must learn to control the pace of the game better – when to slow it down and when to speed it up and making the right decisions,” said Stale Solbakken after the 3-1 win over Barnsley during the weekend.
