STILL ADJUSTING

Wolves midfielder Karl Henry has said that the players are still adjusting to watch the new tactics of the manager Stale Solbakken.

The Swedish manager took over from Terry Connor as the permanent manager of the club in the summer. He has already made some changes to the squad in order to reduce the wage bill of the club, and hopefull bring in some quality players such as Theo Walcott.

However, the changes have not brought the necessary effect at least in the pre-season friendlies, but the midfielder Karl Henry has said that it will take time before the players get used to knowing what the manager demands from them.

The pre-season friendlies recently resulted in Wolverhampton Wanderers drawing 2-2 with the Shrewsbury town. This was a match the club was expected to win comfortably, but the 2-2 draw has meant that there have been questions raised over the manager. Henry, though, has quickly dismissed the suggestions by saying that Stale Solbakken is a breath of fresh air and that he is confident that the players will get used to him before the start of the new Championship season. The 29-year-old is expected to play a key part in helping Wolverhampton Wanderers getting promoted back into the Premier league.

"It's going to take time for us to do exactly what the manager wants us to do. I think he wants us to be compact and difficult to break through, but at the same time, we can't be taking that too literally - we've got to get near the ball and press teams as well. I'm sure the boys who played in the first half won't mind me saying it wasn't a good performance. The boys tried to do it and I think we sat a little bit too deep," said Karl Henry after the 2-2 draw. The club will face Leeds United on the opening day.
