Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Mick McCarthy feels that his side have become more mature and are growing more as a team. Wolves have made an impressive start and are unbeaten after three league games.
McCarthy’s men fought off relegation on the final day of last season, and he believes that his players are learning how to play against the big boys of the Premier League.
“We hope to be a different proposition this season,” McCarthy told the club’s official website.
“It has been a learning curve for us in the Premier League but I think the players were always going to get better and more mature.
“Somebody has said we were looking more mature as a team and that’s where we’ve been trying to get.
“If you stop and look at the best teams in the league – and I’m not comparing us with them – but the Manchester Uniteds and Manchester Citys keep hold of the ball
“The more often you give it away in this league the more often it ends up in the back of your net.
“It’s important to do it, especially away from home, and if you don’t do it you get beaten.
“It was a disciplined performance for us at Villa on Saturday and we kept our shape.”
