Wolves travel to Preston tonight looking to get back to winning ways following a disapointing home 2-2 draw to Southampton last week.
A year ago, the corresponding fixture ended with the travelling fans hailing Super Mick McCarthy, and as Paul Berry of The Birmngham Post pointed out today, what a difference a year makes.
Should we be surprised?
When football is as likely to suffer from our throw away culture as all other aspects of todays life.
Results not going your way? Get a new guy in. Still not working? Change again.
Eventually its BOUND to coincide with the next big thing in management looking for a new challenge, then we'll be minted,
Players and managers alike get lifted to exhalted status, then castigated for failing to live up to unrealisticaly high expectations, with heads being demanded as quickly as pints of Banks's get downed pre match.
The irony of 'You don't know what your doing' now being sung to Mick McCarthy isnt lost on everyone though.
But they dont tend to be part of the vocal minority whose idea of long term is 'wimmabigclub' and having paid their money are more than happy to exert their right to become the oppostions 12th man.
