Ever since Mick McCarthy's sacking at Wolves, three (hopefully wise) men have led the chase to replace him.
Alan Curbishley, Steve Bruce and Neil Warnock have been the bookies favourites as soon as the announcement was made that our Mick would be leaving Molinuex.
Has it been the worst kept secret in football that those men are on our shortlist for the post? Or is it merely highlighting the limited options available to chief executive Jez Moxey and owner Steve Morgan for choosing mid-February to sack their manager?
Whatever the answer, that is the reality we now find ourselves in.
All three have their positive points, all three have their negative points.
Curbishley did well at Charlton, taking them to a similar position to ourselves, before Charlton fans began to get itchy feet, putting pressure on Curbishley to take them to the next step from Premier League survivors to pushing higher in the league.
Eventually he left and they fell down the leagues and now find themselves in the third tier of English football.
Steve Bruce had a similar record to McCarthy while at Birmingham, did reasonably well at Wigan before failing at Sunderland despite being able to spend big in the transfer market and was recently sacked.
Neil Warnock, a media darling and will be popular due to his off the cuff remarks, a bit like McCarthy in some respects.
Did a good job at Sheffield United before eventually getting relegated from the Premier League, again did ok at Crystal Palace before getting big spending QPR promoted to the Premier League, but despite having a large transfer kitty at his disposal, his work wasn't deemed good enough by their owner and he was sacked recently too.
Vital Wolves Comment: Out of the three I'd go for Curbishley as he is the better long term prospect.
But he's been out of the game for a while, departing West Ham in September 2008.
Has he lost his touch? Will he hit the ground running with the day to day slog of a relegation battle?
He currently leads our poll with 37% of the vote, over the other contenders.
Steve Bruce and Warnock both have 3%, while 15% want to see a u-turn from Moxey and Morgan and see the quick return of Mick McCarthy.
