Total farce

Total farce

The hunt for the next Wolverhampton Wanderers manager has now officially become a total farce.

Steve Bruce remains the bookies favourite for the post, despite Steve Morgan apparently cooling his interest after fan opposition.

The former Birmingham, Wigan and Sunderland boss was interviewed for the first time a week ago and the Daily Star and Express believe he is now beginning to get impatient with the wait and could even withdraw his interest.

Yesterday's favourites, Reading boss Brian McDermott and Brighton manager Gus Poyet also appear to have been off the mark.

Brighton want around £2million in compensation to prize Poyet away, while McDermott has reportedly agreed a new contract at Reading.

The Express & Star believe that Alan Curbishley was once again approached early this week, but the former Charlton and West Ham manager turned us down again as he does not hold a shared vision for the club with chairman Steve Morgan and is unwilling to agree a three-month contract.

Despite reportedly turning the job down TWICE, he remains the third favourite with the bookies, simply because no one really has any clue on who could be in the running, with the options now appearing fairly limited.

Former Huddersfield Town manager Lee Clark remains second favourite.

Vital Wolves Comment: Lee Clark actually appears to be one the most popular choices out of those recently mentioned.

On our front page poll Clark has taken 11% of the vote, ahead of Steve Bruce 5%, Brian McDermott 3% and Gus Poyet 8%.

The most popular option amongst the users on Vital Wolves was Alan Curbishley who had 53% before he withdrew from the running for the first time.

47% would like to see Mick McCarthy return.

You say to yourself, surely we cant be as calamitous as the papers make us out to be... then you think back to the massive funding of the stadium and academy, instead of the squad, the farcical transfer seasons, year after year, the totally innacurate press releases from the board... and you say to yourself, yes, yes this WWFC board is very much capable of being the inept buffoons they are being made out to be... I am laughing out loud, but crying inside.... I think I need a break from football - these idiots are killing my sport.

comes to something when the people around me in the office suggest John Gregory!!! We are becoming a total laughing stock. Offer Curbishly a contract based on HIS vision for the furure FFS!!! Not the vision of Waldorf and Statler!

I think you've said that about 10 times BBW. Getting boring now. Maybe you should learn to accept that your God has gone and that we need a new one rather than the same old same old rubbish you continue to spout.

If we can't get Curbishley we should try and get Ray Wilkins. Otherwise we're doomed. 2M's have made a right cock up of this!!!!!

Odd BBW posts his views a few times and its boring, others write their views over and over again and thats fine because you agree. BBW is entitled to his opinion just as much as you are rusty.

47% would like to see Mick McCarthy return according to the vote so perhaps it isn't BBW spouting rubbish???

It's just like the transfer window, all this speculation about who we are going to get and then its a complete surprise when they unveil someone..... So who hasn't been linked with the wolves post then? Could it be that Jez has the chosen one hidden up his sleeve, or somone that has never been heard of...EVER!!!! Akela you should put up Mike Bassett on the poll!!
