Poll: Who should be the next Wolves boss?

Poll: Who should be the next Wolves boss?

It's a simple enough question, which would appear to have a far from easy answer!

Since Tuesday, we have been running a poll to ask who the fans want as the next manager at Molineux, we listed all the front runners and the clear choice was:

Alan Curbishley with 53%.

But considering he has now withdrawn from the running, we've restarted the poll.

We have also removed Chris Hughton who took 4%, Neil Warnock who took 2% as they are now highly unlikely to take the post!

Previous Result:

Who should be the next Wolves boss?

Poll Date: 14 Feb 2012

Alan Curbishley 53%

Bring back Mick McCarthy! 22%

Rafa Benitez 10%

Chris Hughton 4%

Ian Holloway 3%

Roy Keane 2%

Neil Warnock 2%

Sven Goran Eriksson 2%

Billy Davies 1%

Steve Bruce 1%

Dougie Freedman 0%

Yeah, I agree corbo, where is the "None of the above" tab, or the "WWFC Board havent a f***kin clue" tab, or even "What's the point" tab...

Must admit I didn't think to include a none of the above option, I'll include it the next time the front runner pulls out.
20/02/2012 13:43:00
I can't believe this. The only guy out there with any real chance of keeping us up was Curbs. Yet the board have managed to screw this up royally. The managerial debate has somewhat detracted from the abysmal performance of the team and the almost inevitable looming relegation. Mick should have gone before the window closed. They should have hunted down O'Neil before he went S'land. What is wrong with them? P*ss up and brewery spring to mind!!

Graeme Souness now as short as 14/1 with some bookmakers, its impossible to keep up, no one has a clue.

I'm gonna make a prediction based on the happenings at Wolves over previous months. We will be administration within 2 years!!!!!!! Controversial I know but the money has dried up, development of the ground is to be halted, no ambition to match a managers vision, buying players on the cheap. All smacks of a club that is struggling behind the scenes. I hope to God I'm wrong but something is definitely not right at the moment.....I can hear panic buttons being pressed left right and centre.

this is a right royal mess!!! I hope you are wrong Rustmonkey

Been away from the site for a while, partly enforced partly by choice so you can only imagine I have less hair than a week ago, most of it being pulled out. I hoped to believe the club when they said they had not spoken to anyone whilst Mick was still in charge, now it is apparent they had not given the impending issue any thought whatsoever. They have supposedly interviewed, or spoken with the three names thrown directly at them by the media. Warnock going to Leeds has saved me from burning a shirt. As for Curbs, his sudden disapearance from all consideration raises questions. How badly does he really want to manage (it would appear not much) and if the talks went tits up, as in him not being able to agree of the future direction of the club we can only assume they were indeed offering him 13 games in the interim, or spluttered the size of the summar transfer kitty. It's all a bit odd but so be it. Considering the mindless yelling from the touchline over the course of the past 3 years and the sight of Mick and Clipboard flipping through pages as if they were surprised they might be faced with the need for a tactical change during a game, following by looks of bemusement and resignation, a steady tactician I thought would have served us well. Nevermind. I assume the poll ratings thus far are indicative of our collective sense of humour; I don't take it too seriously and I think if they asked him to come back he would tell them where to stick it. If we are going to bring Steve Bruce in we may as well look at trip planner ready for next season cos the Championship has some lovely little grounds. Worst idea I have heard from the lot and has disaster written all over it. Seems the majority of Wolves fans are completely against the bloke before he has even got anywhere near the door. The sight of Graham Taylor popping up on the list brought on a cold sweat. Many of us argued this sacking should have come a very long time ago- I could not accuse the club of a knee jerk reaction but the way things are panning out, or not, it points that way. Ultimately I think they are going to go against yet another of their mission statements and appoint from outside the box. Unless they have Benitez up their sleeve you are going to start looking at Lee Clark (43 game unbeaten run does not come too easy right?). I would prefer him to the likes of Warnock and Bruce any day of the week- he would relish such an opportunity to cut his teeth and if he did come in and manage to keep us up what a flier he would be off to. The more I think about it the more I lean towards one name that is not even appearing on polls anymore... Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Taking a club who have won jack in their hundred year existence and taking them to the title first time round is one thing but I am more drawn to the fact he spent a decade working and learning from the best manager in the country who has earmarked him for a big future in management. An old hand with a dodgy record is not what we need right now- a good footballing pedigree and the hunger. Come on Wolves. Suprise us. Turn this calamity of a process into a positive everyone involved with the club is pining for and get it done quick.
