What Are Moxey And Morgan Playing At?

So Wolves sacked Mick. Now sacking him is one thing. Replacing him is an entirely different bucket of aquatic creatures. Three names have been bandied about, Alan Curbishley, Steve Bruce and Neil Warnock. Wolves’ good fortune is that Warnock is not heading in the direction of Molineux, because if he was then we may as well have kept Mick. I have my doubts that Curbishley will take the job even if it’s handed to him on a silver platter. He’s a London boy, and I can’t see him really wanting to move at his time of life to the West Midlands. Then there’s Steve Bruce. He’s at best unlucky and at worst as inept as  Mick has proved to be as a Premier League manager. So if none of the above take this job, who is going to move into the Molineux hotseat?

There have been a few outrageous names mooted. Rafa Benitez. I really can’t see Rafa becoming Wolves’ manager or even being the one who ensures Premier League status should the bizarre happen. Sven Goran Eriksson is another. Sacked by Leicester is a great recommendation to get a job at Wolves. Oh wait he managed England didn’t he, so there’s a good chance of him. Then we have Steve “depressed” Coppell, no thanks, the modern day managerial Alan Ball. Lee Clark has been mentioned, but I don’t think he has the experience on his own.

So who is it going to be? Moxey has been playing his cards close to his chest, but if Curbishley was the man then I think we’d know by now. Likewise Steve Bruce. It’s been hinted that the manager will be experienced and a “surprise.” So who would be the one who would best fit that kind of description? Shearer? Keegan? The unlikely Benitez? I think it’s most likely that the job will go to manager currently in a job. But a team of Keegan and Lee Clark would do for me.
Keegan has PL experience and Lee Clark will one day make a fine top level manager, plus we’d have the added bonus of booking clipboard AKA Terry Connor a taxi out of Molineux. Even better we then be able to scoop Jordan Rhodes in the summer. Bosh every one’s a winner.

Mind you I am a Wolves supporter so I really can’t expect a top flight anything to be sold on Wolves. Certainly the timing of Mick’s dismissal smacks of sheer desperation and does not exactly inspire confidence of new interviewees. Nor does the “rolling 12 month contract” that is bound to be offered.

So now this article is in the Daily Mail….FFS Moxey and Morgan. Get a grip!

Bruce turns down Wolves after they offer 13-game role

In with a shout: But Bruce wants longer deal

Steve Bruce has turned down Wolves‘ offer to take charge of the club’s battle against relegation because they are only offering the job for the remaining 13 games of the season.
Bruce, out of work since being sacked by Sunderland in November, stunned Wolves boss Steve Morgan and chief executive Jez Moxey by saying a temporary manager would not be able to save the club from the drop because the players would not respond to anyone who might only be at the club for three months.
The club, who sacked Mick McCarthy last Monday, now have to decide whether to return to No 1 target Bruce with the offer of a two-and-a-half-year deal or stick to their original plan of recruiting someone short term.
Former West Ham and Charlton boss Alan Curbishley is believed to be open to the ‘trial’ suggestion as he attempts to rebuild his reputation after spending more than three years out of the game.
Wolves had wanted to make an appointment before their next match, against Newcastle, on Saturday.
