Chief Executive Jez Moxey may well have wanted to keep his cards close to his chest, but Wolves chairman Steve Morgan has blown his hand wide open.
Moxey did a sterling job in front of the cameras yesterday, he spoke well, came across as a man in charge and in control.
You could tell the decision to sack Mick McCarthy certainly wasn't taken lightly by him and in fact he virtually admitted that he regretted having to make the decision during his afternoon interview with Sky Sports News.
With 24 hour news as it is, the media however made McCarthy's departure yesterdays chip paper within hours and focus quickly shifted on to who would step in at Molinuex.
Earlier in the day and within the first hour of McCarthy's sacking being made public, Alan Curbishley, who is often in the Sky Sports News studio was commenting about the decision to sack McCarthy.
The obvious question came up about whether he would be interested and his answer was just as predictable: "If I get a phone call, then I`ll speak to him. I have always said I wanted to go back in to the Premier League.'
That single comment alone made the former Charlton and West Ham boss the bookies favourite for the role.
Steve Bruce and Neil Warnock have also been getting some backing, but Curbishley this morning remains the favourite.
So obviously, he is the name who will be thrown around by the media when they get to talk to the men in charge.
While Moxey side stepped these questions brilliantly, because quite frankly he wasn't in a position to answer it at this stage.
Morgan jumped in two footed once he found the time to comment from his family skiing holiday.
'He's got a great track record, he's been there and done that before and he's exactly the calibre of person that we're looking for.' Morgan told the Telegraph.
Quickly trying to down play his comments, but without much luck continued: "There are a number of other candidates as well. I don`t really want to be drawn in to a conversation about who we`d be talking to just yet. Clearly we`d be interested in someone of his calibre.'
Without wanting to be drawn into the conversation, he was and Curbishley must now be expecting a call from his agent if he hasn't already to line up an interview.
