Goal machine Morgan to lace up boots?

Goal machine Morgan to lace up boots?

All this time we've been struggling for results and all Wolves had to do was name 59-year-old Wolves owner Steve Morgan in the starting line-up and everything would have been fine.

Surrounded by security stewards, Morgan left the stadium an hour and a half after the full time whistle and was approached by supporters.

He went on to defend the hunt for new manager process (which was of course a shambles), by saying that Steve Bruce had actually wasted four days after initially accepting the job.

According to the Telegraph Morgan told supporters: 'I'll face you anytime. He (Bruce) accepted the job - he accepted it. He took four days off the process.

Then talking about the Blackburn game specifically, Morgan went on to basically insult our whole team claiming he personally could have done better.

He continued: 'Do you know what? I wasn't on the pitch today - otherwise we would have scored.

'We could have had four goals in the second-half, but that's confidence.'

Unsurprisingly Wolves moved to clarify the comments rather quickly and a statement from Club spokesman, Matt Grayson has now appeared on Wolves Official Website which reads: 'Despite what has been reported today, our Chairman did not say Steve Bruce turned down the Manager's job and subsequently held up the process.

'It's on the record the managerial role was offered to one person, before Terry Connor was appointed manager, and we can confirm that wasn't Steve Bruce.

'We don't make a habit of addressing every piece of media speculation, however, Steve Bruce is a fine man and manager and it was important to us to attempt to clear this matter up.'

Vital Wolves Comment: We can only assume that because the club has moved to clarify the comments in the national press about Steve Bruce, then the comment about Morgan perhaps lacing up his boots and going up front next week could indeed be true.

And what do we have to lose, the footballing world are already laughing at us anyway.

So, the reporter from The Telegraph is lying then? He made up the quote regarding Bruce? The reporter took it upon himself to come up with some line about how Bruce had, " took four days off the process". Nah. I'm not having that. It just doesn't ring true as an invented quote,it's too random a choice of words. But, hey, once the club's Ministry of Truth have re-written the record, their version is then the only version. Rember children; 2+2=5... don't argue.

Ad.....strange that on another thread you say how you deplore the behaviour of fans towards JOH and family and yet here you make a direct threat to Moxey and Morgan???? No one is happy with the current situation but the fact is that, nobody deserves the kind of behaviour we are witnessing at the moment. The vast majority of us will have a whine and a whine and may even hurl some abuse from the terraces but direct action is never.....never....gonna achieve anything. If anything, it has the opposite effect I.e. it merely winds up the people involved and makes them dig in. I actually believe that you're" watch your backs" statement is nothing more than you venting your spleen but be aware that others may see it as provocative and threatening. Remember the 2 lads during the riots who were encouraging it on Facebook........4 years each!!!!!!!

Hang on, guys, before you ridicule Mr. Morgan's assertion that he could do better than some of our players, I recall that one or two of you have suggested that I could do a better job on the pitch than some of them. Flattering though that is, it's probably not true.

I wonder if Morgan came out with the old "could do better myself" shtick on the night his team beat us and he completely undermined his manager's authority by 'storming into' the dressing room;the night he performed an excorcism on the spirit in the team and banished it for ever.

Could be, WS84, which just goes to show how little he cares for the club and the team. It's calculated to undermine confidence in and of the persons criticised. And, if we do go down, he will gain from the income gained from the sale of leading players, as well as earning a bonus in reduced wages and transfer fees ... and the parachute payments too.

yes ofcourse i would never advocate anything stupid and yes gobbing off whilst mad as a banshee is never going to result in anything positive... the combination of one dire performance too many, morgan cashing in big time on the back of WWFC linked building projects, and the almost certainty of us going down has taken its toll. Not quite sure how some of you remain so composed, but I applaud you, as for me, I need a cup of tea and a sit down, and i think a bit of a break from all things Wolves. Au Revoir !

I hope it is 'Au Revoir' rather than 'Goodbye', AdMant.
