“We decided to have a war with Wolves after 70 minutes – 70 minutes too late. At the moment we are looking like a 45-minute team and that is on me. I’ve got to fix it and I will fix it. The players here have to help me now for the next eight games and if not, we’ll get players who will help me fix it. We can’t give gifts. I don’t remember another team giving us a gift whereas we are giving away very poor goals.”
