HATCHET MAN: Just what the Premier League needs: More ugly football from Wolves to match eyesores Bo

The Premier League next season could be an ugly place to be if Mick McCarthy is true to his word and gets Wolves to emulate Stoke.
The manager has been talking enthusiastically about picking up points any way they can with attempts to entertain dropping well down his priorities.
Fair enough, Wolves will need to scrap to stay up but if the winnersof the Championship don't have any ambition to play decent football what hope is there for the other teams coming up?
I never said it would be pretty: Wolves boss Mick McCarthy is hugged by celebrating female fans after winning the Championship
Birmingham, also promoted, and Sheffield United, who are favourites to emerge from the play-offs, are not exactly easy on the eye either.
West Bromwich Albion have found out how tough it is to stick to their passing principles with meagre resources but with relegation looming over them, Middlesbrough, Hull and Newcastle, the top flight is in danger of splitting between the artists and the vandals.
