Talks Underway

Talks Underway

Glenn Hoddle has returned to Molineux for teh first time since he tendered his resignation by telephone for talks with CEO Jez Moxey.

Jez, who still holds out hope of changing Hoddle's mind, which would be a footballing first in itself has revealed that there have been 18 applications for the post of manager already.

Although quite what calibre the applicants are, is yet to be seen.

Once the usual Championship Manager candidates have been informed that real-life management is a little trickier than turning on an X-Box, and that when you are at the foot of the table with the crowd on your back, no handy cheat exists to type into your managers keyboard that gets you out of trouble, the serious business of appointing a new boss can begin.

Unless of course Jez finds that elusive cheat and sweet talks Hoddle into staying.

With it now becoming more apparent than its ever been that the fans favourite for the job is Paul Ince, convincing Hoddle to backtrack would do no-one, least of all Jez any favours.

Earlier today Jez said : 'We're working to detail the criteria for the new manager.

'We want to move quickly but it's vital we get the right man.'

Which is almost what was being said 18 months ago after the departure of Dave Jones.

For whatever reason, the Hoddle Experiment didn't work. And it's back to th drawing board once more.

But Jez, please, whatever you do. If he's applied, don't give more than a cursory consideration to Mick 'first touch' McCarthy.

Haven't we had enough of former international managers for a while?
