SJH : Mick Is My Man

SJH : Mick Is My Man

Wolves President Sir Jack Hayward has always endured an on/off relationship with the fans.

Some still blame their one failed Premiership campaign on Sir Jack, who stepped down as club Chairman, appointing his son Rick, when they won promotion in the play off final at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium in 2003.

That act, the subsequent lack of funds made available to Dave Jones, and statements that he would willingly hand over the club to a new owner in the right circumstance was seen as Sir Jack losing interest, and wishing to no longer play an active part in the club`s future.

So it will come as a huge surprise to many to find out his level of involvement in the appointment of Mick McCarthy.

'This last couple of weeks I've been with Jez in all the interviews and discussions,' he told the Birmingham Post.

'It's nice to be involved and see the people and not be told we've appointed so-and-so.'

'So it's good to see the bloke and test him. I wasn't involved in Glenn's appointment at all. I was with Dave Jones, who I met in a Knightsbridge hotel on New Year's Eve before appointing him.'

Although, as he speaks further, it becomes evident that a more hands on approach may only be a temporary move.

Since SJH first took over the club in 1990 Wolves have averaged almost a manager every two years.

And as a swansong, there is nothing he would like more than to see Mick McCarthy once again establish Wolves as a force in the top flight.

'It would be nice if this is my last managerial appointment,' he said.
'Get us up to the Premiership and establish ourselves with this manager. That would be wonderful.'

At 83 years old, it's perhaps understandable that Sir Jack has one eye on finding Wolves a new backer. He also has an eye on eth public's perception of him, and others in his position.
