McCarthy sacked by Wolves

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.'

The right decision. Mick's taken us as far as we can go. We need a change, and the manager had to go. I hope we get Roy Keane, or maybe Paul Ince. Eirkson, Grayson or Bruce would be fine. It would be a joke if Dowie got it, but please NOT warnock!

I imagine this is a last throw of the dice for your board. I imagine it was a real 50/50 call to sack or stick with him, but you do seem to be in a downward spiral and I urge any opposing fans to look at Wolves from from October to understand why he probably had to go

Ince yes the rest no why take on a manager who has just been sacked himself does not make sense.

Paul Ince?? His record has been terrible. Awful at Blackburn and awful at Notts County, if he cant be a success there I'd hate to have our Premier League fate in his hands.

I don't want Ince either, for the reason Akela states. Neither do I want Warnock, who is as limited as MM. Nor does Bruce appeal: look what happened when O'Neill took over from him at Sunderland. We want a person who will motivate and improve our squad not destroy it as MM has done. Coppell could do a good job and would have us playing at pace but he seems to cave in under a challenge. Curbishley: OK in his time but can he still cut it? Houghton maybe ... and what about an earlier suggestion of mine, Freedman? He's young, tactically astute and in tune with the modern game ... and has turned CP's fortunes round. Under no circumstances should we appoint Dowie!

I would like Rodgers too but it would be too much to expect that there is a second madman at Swansea wiling to move to WW.

I have heard it all now! Keane couldn't manage Ipswich? Ince couldn't manage Notts County, Balckburn, bloody hell we have some moronic fans, Mick is well out of it, he won't be out of work long and he will bring a club up to us who will beat the ***** out of us - then watch the cretinous boo boys cringe - me I will be laughing,southbank60 you talk the biggest load of garbage that has ever come out of a gob, people like you are ruining our great club - I want Dowie, then fans like you might go away and support some other poor buggers - then once you have gone we can sack him and get somebody else. We need fans who are prepared to give 100% support not 10% as they do know like saturday when we went 2.1 down fans turned, for 80% of the fans at the mol it is a two match season- the scum home and away, you might as well stop coming now because your seasons over as it is for the scum fans, me it looks like I will have to go and renew my season ticket whilst being ashamed to be associated with boo boys who are dragging us through the gutter once again. mind you maybe you would like Sammy Lee! has for o'nelly - lost two on the trot, lets see what happens now, hughes with all his money were are qpr, norwich and swansea - when they have been in the league for three seasons on the trot then talk, we will rue this day mark my words, just like we did when we sacked Stan, and don't insult Mick by thanking him for what he did because a lot of you never supported him anyway, premiership glory hunters thats all you are.
