Smith turns down Wolves again

Walter Smith has turned down the chance to manage Wolves according to reports.

The confirmation that Wolverhampton Wanderers had become the laughing stock of the Premier League came this afternoon when Walter Smith, who could have been the fifth person offered the position, turned down the advances of Wolves owner Steve Morgan.

Previous reports in the press have revealed that Walter Smith had actually been offered the job earlier this week, but previously turned it down.

It would seem he stands by his decision after turning his back on Wolves for a second time.

With Alan Curbishley also rejected Wolves offers on two occasions, the Wolves boardroom would now appear to be in state of panic, with candidates falling everywhere they turn.

Steve Bruce remains a contender, he has relocated to the Midlands, but has reportedly turned down at least one offer and is thought to be growing impatient.

Neil Warnock and Brian McDermott were also interviewed for the role, but Warnock decided to take the Leeds job and McDermott signed a new contract with Reading.

While Wolves didn't even get the chance to speak to Brighton boss Gus Poyet, but his remarks in the press also lead you to believe that he wouldn't have swapped Brighton for Wolves.

Vital Wolves Comment: Steve Bruce is once again the favourite with the bookies after Walter Smith pulled out of the race.

Terry Connor is now as short as 4/1 with Ladbrokes.

Akela,they are turning the job down faster than you can get the articles online!!!,its becoming a fiasco and they should have stuck with Merlin until the end of the season,now we will end up with Bruce because he is the only taker.

It really is a joke isn't Crete Wolf, completely agree it was the wrong time to sack McCarthy and even some of the people I know who thought his time had come are now changing their minds following the boards handling of the managerial search, which brings me to our new poll! Out of 10, how have the board handled the managerial process?

I would think quite a few will turn us down because everyone now knows that we've offered the job to anyone with a CV.

Never thought I'd say this but...........here goes....... Mr Morgan........go on blended knee grovelling back to Mick and ask him to come back. Offer him a good pot of money to spend in the summer and offer him Moxeys head on a plate.but......ask Ray Wilkinson to come in as his No2.
