So where do Wolves go now?

So where do Wolves go now?

With Mick McCarthy gone, what happens now?

The Wolves Official Website's club statement ended with the line 'The Club will be issuing a fuller statement in due course.'

Which hopefully means that we will be getting some answers soon.

What we do know is Terry Connor will take charge of first team training in the interim period until a new manager is appointed.

How long that process will take is anyone's guess, while we have to ensure that we get the right man in, we have to also work quickly as the period that we are left in limbo could seriously harm our survival chances.

The transition from Mick McCarthy to the new gaffer needs to be as smooth as possible, we want to gain from the possibly uplift in moral, with players fighting for their positions in the hopes of impressing a new man in charge, but also we need to limit the disruption in a squad that was build by Mick McCarthy.

So who are the candidates?

As ever the bookies are quick to assemble a shortlist.

Alan Curbishley seems to be the short favourite with most of the bookies, while Steve Bruce would also be a candidate after his sacking at Sunderland.

Blackpool manager Ian Holloway is third favourite, although he seems unlikely with Neil Warnock and Rafa Benitez also recently seeing their odds shift.

So who would you be putting your money on?

Agree Crete Wolf, it is bad timing, its a knee jerk reaction based on yesterday, which is understandable as I've said a few times already. I can understand the decision, the pressure has been mounting for a few months and yesterday was terrible and McCarthy even sounded like he had lost his way. I still feel we would have recovered though and Mick would have kept us up again. Now we face a period of uncertainty.

Disagree......I have been.a supporter of micks for ages and thank him for the job he has done BUT it was time to go. He was sacked because of yesterday. He was sacked because the board and the players no longer believed in him regardless of what they say. Sunday was a joke not because we lost to the Albion but because for 90 minutes we had a bunch of players who actually looked confused about what they were doing and in what positions. That's always a sign that the manager is panicking which is a sign that the day has come. Where do we go from here..... In an ideal world I'd like to see a young manager with Ray Wilkins and his Team of coaches. Look how poor Chelsea are since he left. Doubt that will happen so second choice has to be Warnock....... He motivates reams and makes them battle. In the event that we do get relegated then he is the man who can get us promoted again. None of the others have his track record for that task.
