New boss to be named within 11 days

New boss to be named within 11 days

Wolves do not intend to wait around after the sacking of Mick McCarthy.

Wolves have to ensure that we get the right man in, we have heard countless times that we are not a hiring and firing club so the appointment has to be right, we can't get it wrong, not with our Premier League status at stake.

But we have to also work quickly as the period that we are left in limbo could also seriously harm our survival chances.

Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey has stated that he ideally would like a new man in the hot seat before the game against Newcastle, but would not be drawn on who could be in contention for the post.

The transition from Mick McCarthy to the new gaffer needs to be as smooth as possible, yes, we want to gain from the possibly uplift in moral a change in manager often brings clubs and with players fighting for their positions in the hopes of impressing a new man in charge, this can give us a boost.

But also we need to limit the disruption in a squad that was built by Mick McCarthy.

So it will be crucial what style of manager we go for.

"We are not ruling out any option at this time.' Jez told the Express & Star.

He continued: "It`s got to be someone who fits with this football club. That is the pre-requisite of the job.

"I know it`s obvious but we are what we are and Wolves needs someone to immerse themselves in the DNA and they need to embrace all that in a way to help us win as many games as we can to stay in the Premier League, then to move on in a positive way.

"However the most important thing is we need a manager who can help us improve our on-field results because our No.1 objective is to win games."

Ive got to say Im still surprised, and obviously delighted that we've taken the bold step to get a new manager. I really didnt think the management gave a damn. We were only going one way with mccarthy, and the fresh ideas and new impetus of a new manager will be just the shot in the arm our troops need. We do have the nucleus of a good squad, well going forward at least, if our new leader can conjure up some way to address our defending it shuld totally transform our season. No one divided fans more than mick, so hopefully with a bit of healing all Wolves fans can stand united once more behind our beloved Club. WE ARE WOLVES !!

We are Wolves but now is also the time for the overpaid players to step up to the mark and be counted.

I would blame the board just as much as Merlin,the timing is all wrong and smacks of desperation,they should have got rid of him before the transfer window or stayed with him until the end of season,they have done neither and will now reap what they have sowed.

I think it's unfair to lump everyone into the BOOBOY category. There are a lot of fans out their, including myself who have supported MM for years but also realised that changes were needed. Yes, if it was gonna happen then it should have been in December but I do feel that he had lost the dressing room regardless of what the players are now saying. We looked completely and utterly devoid of ideas at the weekend which led to some really bizarre decision from the sidelines........Doyle on the wing, Fletcher on the Wing, Jarvis in the all looked bit of a panic " let's try anything" move by MM and Clipboard. That is never a good sign and wouldn't have got any better over the coming weeks. MM did have some bad luck with injuries to Frimmy and Bassong but ultimately they themselves were too little too late. Bad timing maybe but ultimately the right decision. What we have to do now is get behind the new MEN whoever they are. Let's just hope that whoever it is brings in his own coaches. We have got to get right behind the team and push them on to better things. We have 9 points from Blackburn, Bolton and Wigan that will decide our season. Any other points will be bonus'.

And there you go to the default "you dont go to matches" argument, shocker! Do you think Multi-millionaire Morgan got so succesful by pandering popular sentiment hey ? Only hindsight has 20/20 vision, and if they could predict the future they WOULD have sacked Mccarthy at the end of last season... yet they stuck with him (amid much resistance) as long as they could, and now, after a home thrashing by the albion, it was as clear as its ever been that we were going down. A Change had to be made, and a change is being made, get off your high horses and face the frigging facts... He had to go, and this was as late as they could possibly leave it.

Rustmonkey we must have posted at the same time, you have put it far better than I have. Time for everyone to get behind the club and push for safety... and hopefully more next season... WE ARE WOLVES

Yes, he had to go. Not only had he run out of ideas but he had lost the dressing room. Of course, there is a problem about managing the immediate crisis and making arrangements for our long term future.

I'm sure some of these happy clappers were amongst the 29,000 who were at Chorley????? I admit I wasn't......... I was in the Army during those times but have been a season ticket holder for over 20 yrs since. I probably won't be renewing my early bird this year but that as more to do with finance than anything else. I love my club but I don't follow them blindly. I am mature enough to see through the cracks but at the same time I am also happy to listen to differing opinions without the need for an all out assault on anyone who's opinion differs from mine. Some of the people who pop on here and gob off from time to time might want to have a good look at themselves in the mirror. An opinion is an opinion......we may not agree but we can agree to disagree without the need for a torrent of abuse. Take a hard look at yourselves before you choose to comment and respect differing opinions for what they are.
