In Wolves desperate bid to avoid relegation, could we turn to the one man in our history who was actually in charge of a side that dropped out of the Premier League?
Dave Jones remains an outsider with the bookies, he still has odds as high as 19/1 with betfair, but with the media, Jones has now been installed as the next favourite for the job.
Jones of course has had success at Molineux before, he won the Division One Play-off's in 2003 and became the first manager to steer us to the Premier League.
A feat that shouldn't be overlooked as it is a great achievement.
But he of course then went on to become the first manager to get us relegated from the Premier League, so its rather ironic that he is now seen as a potential replacement for Mick McCarthy, who managed what Dave Jones couldn't do, twice.
That might seem harsh, but I think we've moved on a great deal over the past seven-and-a-half years and taking on Jones would be a step backwards.
He spent six years at sleeping giants Cardiff and failed on every occasion to get them promoted out of the Championship.
What does he offer that the departed Mick McCarthy couldn't other than just being a different face in the dressing room?
Looking back on his career at Cardiff where he was suppose to be hunting promotion for his entire time there he had a win percentage of 41.9%, that's less than McCarthy's much derided time at Sunderland fighting relegation and only slightly higher than his time with Wolves where he has spent two-and-a-half years surviving in the Premier League.
Options might be lacking at the moment, but this appointment does have to be right, lets not have a knee-jerk appointment to match the knee-jerk sacking.
