Could Connor get the job permanently?

Terry Connor may have the Wolves job until the end of the season, but will he get the job permanently?

To give himself any kind of chance of getting the job for next season he simply has to keep us in the Premier League.

If we head into next season still with our Premier League status intact, then Connor would probably put himself in pole position to get the job on a long-term basis.

Unlike Stuart Pearce with the England job, Connor does see himself as the longer-term successor to Mick McCarthy.

"If I`m ever going to do it, my time is now. I feel ready, positive and upbeat." he told the Daily Star.

The problems I forsee is the scenario where he does keep us up but they still bring in a new man in the summer,he could then want to bring in his own team and TC could find himself out.Possibility though is, that he has it in writing that if we stay up he keeps the job,thats his bonus so to speak,no one will know until when and if that happens.

OK, we have no idea how TC will turn out. But we've rubbished cvs from much more experienced managers out there, so why would we gamble ? I think this is all premature anyways, we have to see what division we are playing in next season first . . let us hope the Mr Conner has a better way of approaching Blackburn than mick did....

This one is almost a non starter. It is premature but I shall address it anyway. He got the job because no one else would take it and it had gone beyond embarrassing. If he keeps them up the board will hold their palms together and shake them triumphantly in the air, and will waste no time in letting us know they knew what they were doing. They would subsequently look stupid to fire him in that event. If we stay up he has the job. My fear of relegation still sends trembling shivers down the spine, worst still if it is a 'gallant' effort they might stick with him anyway. They might not have a choice- if no one would take a Wolves team a point away from the safety zone and 13 games to do it, who is going to take a relegated Wolves team that will be demoralized and picked to bits in terms of losing it's best players. The whole process was a joke and my response when he was given the job was not pleasant, but like all I have no choice but to accept he is here until at least the end of the season and I will be kicking every ball with them til the final whistle goes.

I think his only chance of getting the job is if we stay up, if we go down, someone will jump at the chance of taking us and the challenge of getting us back in the Premier League. The problem with the managerial hunt process appeared to be that no one was willing to take us for just 13 games, but if someone is offered a 3 year contract then we look a good proposition to most managers.

I agree with Akela. It will be a different situation in the summer if we are relegated. TC's contract will not be renewed and we will be looking for a young dynamic manager, attuned to the modern game, of the kind I have been banging on about for some time. We will be able to attract a good list of candidates because the timing will be better than mid-February. But, as other contributors have pointed out, it's merely an academic exercise at the moment.
