Snippets: Mancienne on His Future...Hogan on Returning...Ainsworth on Results and on Referees and Dissent

Ben Kosky/Kilburn Times - Mancienne Talking About Promotion, Wolves Games and His Future
"....The right-back, who has been on loan from Chelsea all season, confirmed once again that no decision has yet been taken on whether he might make a permanent move to Loftus Road in the summer.
He said: "I haven't heard anything at the moment, I just get on with my own game and try and do as well as I can." Kilburn Times

Gareth Ainsworth/Kilburn Times - on Wolves Game, Ipswich Game, and Dissent
"....He also pointed out that the referee had a different angle. There's no doubt that referees are an integral part of the game and they can make or break a season.
Referees have been a bit of a talking point over the last week or so and I have to say I don't like referees who seem to enjoy the limelight and become minor celebrities.
Fifteen years ago, most people would probably have struggled to name many refs at all - now there are 10 or 15 who are very well-known and that's not really what the game's about.
But I also think there's no excuse for a player getting booked for dissent. That's a sign of weakness, not passion.
In nearly 20 years playing football I've never seen a referee change his mind - even if he knows he's wrong, he's not going to admit he made a mistake.
So you have to keep it in mind that you might be up against a 12th man and sometimes the decisions go against you, which should make you more determined to work even harder
