Bruce compiles 'survival dossier' for Wolves

Bruce compiles 'survival dossier' for Wolves

If the media are right, then the vacant managerial role at Molinuex is Alan Curbishley's to lose.

The former Charlton and West Ham manager was the first name that came out of the lips of owner Steve Morgan and he would appear to be one of the first candidates to be interviewed at some stage today.

One of the other leading contenders is former Sunderland, Birmingham and Wigan boss Steve Bruce and according to the Daily Star he is planning to wow Morgan and Moxey during the interview process with a 'survival dossier' in the hopes of impressing and getting the gig.

Bruce of course has one major positive over Curbishley and that is that he may well appear to have his finger on the pulse, with Curbs having not been in the game for a number of years.

That said, there doesn't appear to be much supporter backing for Bruce, which must also come into play when the board make their decision.

We the supporters, need to be united going into the final run-in, can the board risk seeing a split supporter base over a new manager?

I have a suspicion that Curbs has already acquired the post on the qt and everything else is smoke and mirrors. Watch the sky sports interview with Curbs, a Freudian slip sees him refer to Wolves as ‘we’. It's only for a micro-second before corrected, but it's there!!

I don't know if Curbs is the man to save you hes been out of the game for a long long time....Bruce needs money to do ANYTHING and he simply isnt a v.good manager, Chris Hughton would be a good nod hes done it on a shoe string at Newcastle and was still sacked and is now doing the same for Birmingham!! Warnock isn't regarded as a Prem manager Eriksson seems past his sell by date...Is Rafa even a realistic target?? Roy Keane 50/50 on him either the players would respond or they would run and hide!! either way i hope you survive the drop and the Board back the new manager with funds if you do survive out of the list in the poll Hughton would be choice.

To Mr Curbishley, I appreciate you will need a week or too to bed in and get to know everybody but do the Wolves fans 1 favour. Please please please bring in your own back room staff. If we are gonna move forward then we need to get rid of all the dead wood starting with TC.

You're so right Rustmonkey! The club does need to get rid of the dead wood amongst the coaching staff,starting with TC.I know it would smack of London bias if Curbs is appointed,but how about Ray Wilkins as his No 2.Chelsea haven't been anywhere near the team they were since he left.

I hope HE doesn't survive the interview, dossier or no dossier. My choices are: 1) Rafa 2) Wilkins 3) Curbushley. Yes corbo, Rustmonkey - new coaching staff, new (to WW) systems, new everything, to go with MoliNEW. Rather have Mick back than this failure.
