McCarthy Will Lead Wolves Next Season

McCarthy Will Lead Wolves Next Season

Remember the advert for the Scotch video tapes-the dancing skeleton and the 'Life Time Guarantee'?

A friend of mine, American, more accustomed to coaches pacing around wearing headsets and microphone attachments, and humor consisting of a blonde playing a guitar and singing badly about smelly cats- was far from taken with our Mick and called him The Ghoul.

Whilst Mick's sarcasm sometimes goes down like a lead balloon, and his self fashioned 'Yorkshire Bland' does not present him in the greatest light you can't knock his honesty and I for one find most of his interviews highly amusing, although I will say they are easier to enjoy when we have won.

Call him what you want, but love him or hate him, and there does appear a very clear divide, expect Mick to be pacing the touchline at Molineux next season, with cranes in the background, whether we kick off against Liverpool or Scunthorpe.

Steve Morgan stopped short of offering assurances yesterday- but what he did say said more than what he didn't.

Speaking in generalized terms that point to a more personal philosophy, Morgan said 'I don`t think it`s the way to run anything by chopping and changing and having knee jerk reactions' and considering his success in business it would prove an assertion difficult to argue with.

Morgan added 'All I`d say is we believe in stability and teamwork... it`s about planning, and working together as a team and taking things forward in a considered way' and paid testament to the bond between the three M's at the helm- "Mick, Jez and I get together on a regular basis and we always have good banter and we share a good spirit.'

Continuity in football, whilst rare has proven a far more effective strategy but if we are approaching this with a 'business' mentality ponder this- let's say you take on a project and from a modest budget knock up a B&B that runs efficiently and is popular based on it's strong foundations.
Given 18 million you decide to try and turn it into a hotel which collapses a year after. Would you expect to get the chance to rebuild it?

Football is a results based business but in the event of a disastrous relegation, we look likely to prove the exception to the rule.

The Pope, as our mate Crete has named him, can expect to be around for some time.

And NYCW is a Black Country man who had to go to the USDA for a living, just as I had to go to London for the same reason. It doesn't make us less Wolves fans than anyone else.

I had to- people in the USDA didn't so much as speak- they were only able to communicate by shouting. They had their own language too. High blood pressure was, well, high.

The pope! First thing that comes to mind is infallibility - self-assumed, of course...hmm. The second is that you may be in office for anything from 28 years to a month - in the latter case only if you are too good. Quite the reverse in football. For a third, you go by a name other than your real one. Crete has taken care of that. Finally you are a Pontiff; just another 'i' to have two (one to keep firmly set on the opposition's half) and be able to moan: a point if we had not conceded in the 93rd.
