McCarthy sacked by Wolves
Mick McCarthy's time at Molineux has come to an end.
While things were far from rosy amongst our Mick and the Wolves board in recent weeks, the final nail in the coffin was the 5-1 defeat in the Black Country derby.
While one of only a few supporters of Mick McCarthy who was still brave enough to fight his corner, even I admitted last night that a result like that could be just too hard to take.
The performance and circumstances are irrelevant, 5-1 against the Baggies was simply unacceptable and that appears to have been the same realisation the board made this morning.
'The board took the difficult decision after a run of form which has seen Wolves pick up 14 points in the last 22 league games,' a club statement read.
It concluded by adding: 'The board would like to place on record their sincere thanks and appreciation to Mick McCarthy and he leaves with the very best wishes of everyone connected to the club.'
