Glenn Walks

Just like many said he would, when the going got tough, Glenn Hoddle got out.

After little more than 18 months at the club, Glenn Hoddle called CEO Jez Moxey at 3pm Saturday afternoon to hand in his resignation.

Was Hoddle trying to see the story buried amidst all the furore surrounding an England World Cup Final? Almost certainly the answer is yes, a fact that will do nothing to alter the opinions of many fans who felt that his heart was never truly in the job.

On Saturday, Jez Moxey said :

'I had an unexpected call from the manager Glenn Hoddle at about 3 o'clock this afternoon (Saturday). He told me he was resigning with immediate effect.
'I asked him to reconsider but he said that his mind was made up. However, he did agree to meet with me on Monday.
'We will issue a further statement in due course.'

A statement released by Hoddle's representatives said

'I wish to announce my decision, with immediate effect, to resign as manager of Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club.
'It has been a very difficult decision but I feel that my expectations and the club's expectations have drifted too far apart in recent weeks. This decision has been made early in pre-season for the benefit of the club.
'I would like to take the opportunity of thanking the board, players, staff and fans for their support and efforts and wish everyone connected with Wolverhampton Wanderers every success in the future.'


Hoddles reign will go down as one of disapointment and failure, confused tactics and frequently even more confused players. Now the search begins in earnest to find a replacement.

As far as many fans are concerned there is only one name worth putting on the list.

Hoddle's exit will leave a tremendous void. Anyone with any sense of rationality unbeclouded by the perennially incomprehensible inaccuracies sorrounding Glenn's person and career would realise that Hoddle is a visionary and a gifted coach. Maybe its for the best.. Splosh

Splosh, in hindsight, it was never a good match. Maybe with a different squad, who knows. He came in and tried to put HIS style on OUR club, and it was apparent some toime ago it wasnt working. Glennda being Glennda was never about to alter what HE was doing, and teh players seemed at times to be unwilling or unnable to get to grips with his vision. , The sad thing is it will go down not as a Hoddle failure, but as ANOTHER Hoddle failure

I think he finally saw the writing on the wall, as mentioned above he is a guy who thinks outside the sqaure and it is difficult for him to put these thoughts and ambitions into the club square. With money came ambition without money its pure hard graft and that is why he left. This will put us back a season or two.
