Roy Keane for Molineux post?

Roy Keane for Molineux post?

Could Roy Keane be the man to steer Wolves away from the relegation trap door?

The 40-year-old Irishman who has managed Sunderland and Ipswich, isn't yet a favourite amongst the bookies.

With all the speculation regarding Steve Bruce and Alan Curbishley, the oddsmakers still believe they are the front runners, but Roy Keane has recently seen his odds shorten to just 5/1 over the weekend and the Daily Mail have reported that he could be the man that Jez Moxey and Steve Morgan turn too.

Reports have suggested that neither Bruce or Curbishley are willing to take the managerial post on a short term basis.

The media have speculated that offers had been made to both men for a 13 game stint to see how the land lies at the end of the season, with neither keen to take on such a short term vision.

Roy Keane however is said to be happy to prove himself over that period.

During his time at Sunderland and Ipswich, Keane has been in charge of 181 games, winning 70 times and losing 69, but left both clubs under a dark cloud.

Looked a promising young manager whilst at Sunderland but it never worked out at Ipswich, massive gamble.

Argh! I am saying this through gritted teeth but I probably would just about prefer Keane to Bruce as manager. As we mustn't give any of the losers more than the rest of this season to turn our fortunes round, he surely would be more likely to galvanise the players than Bruce would ... but I really don't want either. At least, if we go down, we can start afresh with a young and dynamic manager, one who is attuned to the modern game.

Me too, Wolf Man, but who, out of all the candidates cited, is capable of delivering it?

This team would not go down with either Ian Holloway or Mick Mccarthy in charge.

No, MM had to go. As he had run out of ideas and had lost the confidence of the players, we would have continued the downward spiral. It's a pity the board left it too late to attract a reasonable quality field. Nonetheless, given the names cited, I am glad that we are not going to offer any of them a long-term contract.
