McCarthy - Morgan Bust Up?

McCarthy - Morgan Bust Up?

Wolves Chairman Steve Morgan and boss Mick McCarthy have reportedly not spoken since the game against Manchester United.

A week may have passed but the dust certainly has not settled according to the Express & Star who believe the pair have fallen out over McCarthy's team selection at Old Trafford.

The local rag believes that a lack of a statement from Morgan on either WOW or the match day programme is possible evidence that Morgan was unhappy with his managers selection policy.

The paper goes on to say Morgan was shocked by the selection and that whispers suggest the two haven't spoke since.

Vital Wolves Comment: Very little to add, obviously go out and buy the paper if you want to read the full article, or of course visit the site via the link provided.

While we may have shown absolute fickleness by our u-turn on McCarthy's decision (something we are unashamed of as we are supporters - that is our right!) it appears Morgan is a little less easier to turn.

Steve Morgan's silence is nothing new as he has said he intends keeping out of the limelight but IF there is any substance to this rumour, will anything come of it? Personally I think not. Morgan will continue to be angry 'under his breathe' but in time will slowly accept that McCarthy was perhaps correct in his judgement and with McCarthy stating that ' I am the manager and I make the team decisions - and if not, I will quit', Morgan has to back off or find another manager to take over. This fiasco will die down in time and all the quotes of ther managers doing what Mick did are incorrect, they replaced players FOLLOWING injuries NOT before they occurred!

This rumour about Steve Morgan being disturbed by Mick McCarthy's team selection at Old Trafford is not an E&S story. It is reporting on a story by John Richardson in the Sunday Express. Rightly or wrongly, Richardson is said to be closer to Morgan than any other reporter (since the days of Morgan's attempt to take over Liverpool). I don't know whether there's any truth in this or not but, if the E&S is right that Morgan and McCarthy have not spoken to each other since the MU match is right, then surely that seems extraordinary in the circumstances? Certainly, Morgan has made no public statement about the affair, which in itself is pretty surprising give the raucous furore that McCarthy's decision sparked. I am disturbed that Morgan has kept quiet throughout the fuss. Wulfrun Wolf writes that, if McCarthy has threatened to quit, Morgan has to back off or find another manager to take over; therefore, the fiasco will die down. Why? Maybe Morgan will find another manager. He does not have the reputation of a man who is weak or can be bullied.

Just heard on the radio from Paddy Power that Wolves is Mark Hughes' next job - that's their most certain bet for where he's going next. I for one will throw away my season ticket if they get rid of Magic Mick.

Thanks for that links peps, I had only seen the reports in the E&S. However it would appear that there is nothing to the rumour anyway.
