Solbakken, who watched his team go down 2-1 at Watford on Saturday, believes he should have opted for physicality over attacking flair away from Molineux after seeing his side bullied at Hull, Burnley and Huddersfield.

"I had a really tough Sunday analysing what's gone wrong and I watched a lot of games on DVD," the Norwegian told the Express and Star. "I thought we were on the right track when we went on that run and didn't let in any goals in three away games on the trot.

"But, after the international break, we haven't really produced and that could be because I've chosen too offensive a side, or maybe a less physical line-up.

"I think the biggest chance of improving in the short term is to pick a more physical side because I haven't picked a physical enough team in some games.

"I have to look myself in the mirror and say in some away games maybe I shouldn't have thought so much about the rhythm and continuity, but maybe we needed a more physical side, a more defensive side, or a counter-attacking side.

"That's something I'm going to have to look harder at. But we'd been on a very good run which I wanted to keep going. We've had payback time for that. I have to hold my hands up and take responsibility - it's my job to put it right."

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
