On Vital Wolves the future of Mick McCarthy seems to never really fade away.
Regular readers will know that I fully backed him to lead us to safety in our first season in the Premier League and I remained positive towards the end of last season that he would once again steer us to safety.
But one of the great things about this site is the debate and the wide ranging views and different opinions, not only on the article comments but also on the articles we publish.
While I have backed him, it's fair to say some of the other writers are less convinced and over the past two years we've debated the topic on numerous occasions.
With the end of season upon on us, it was obvious the topic would arise again and seanlyncha7x suggested our recent poll: Is Mick McCarthy the man to take us into the next season?
60% believe he is the man to take us into next season, 38% believe he isn't, while 2% sat on the fence.
So how has opinion changed since our promotion to the top flight?
6 months ago we asked: How much time should be given to the coaching staff to get things right?
Poll Date: 18 Oct 2010
38% were Happy as things are, 20% wanted to wait until the end of the season, 6% wanted to wait a month, while 6% wanted to wait for the January transfer window.
Only 30% wanted McCarthy gone immediately.
As an interesting comparison, rewind 18 months and we asked the very same question again.
Similar to the previous poll, it was mid-season in our first year in the Premier League, but McCarthy gained a majority backing then as well.
Should Vital Wolves support Mick McCarthy as boss?
Poll Date: 30 Nov 2009
54% voted yes, 4% wanted to wait to Christmas, 3% wanted to wait till the end of the season, 2% sat on the fence undecided.
37% wanted him gone.
Through the magic of the Vital Wolves archives, we can even go back to February 2008.
Wolves were sitting 12th in the Championship, with 15 games to go.
Has Mick McCarthy still got your support? The poll asked?
58% said yes, 10% were unsure, 38% said no.
Wolves of course went on to miss out on the play-offs that year.
