Only the best for McCarthy

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy admits he will not be able to repeat his controversial team selection against Manchester United which resulted in the club being given a suspended fine.

McCarthy made 10 changes for the visit to Old Trafford in mid December - three days after the win at Tottenham - as Wolves were beaten 3-0 by Sir Alex Ferguson's side.

The tactic repeated dividends as Wolves triumphed against fellow strugglers Burnley at Molineux 2-0 four days later as McCarthy reverted back to nine of the team which won at White Hart Lane.

But the move has been frowned upon by the Premier League, who have handed Wolves a suspended £25,000 fine.

The former Republic of Ireland boss said: "I have accepted the fine. It is done with. I will not be appealing against it. I feel it has been dealt with, I have accepted it, the club have accepted it, and that is it finished with.

"Everyone else can have an opinion on it. Mine is, I'm absolutely glad it is done and dusted with. Where do you draw the line on changes? It is now open for discussion but not with me."
