Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is Wolves main target

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, better known for his playing days with Manchester United, is widely thought of as an upcoming young manager in Europe.

His first managerial experience was as reserve team boss at Manchester United before moving back to his native Norway with Norwegian side Molde.

Molde already has shown itself to be a good breeding ground for young managers with Uwe Rösler having a spell in charge in Norway before making the move to England with Brentford and it was he who Solskjaer replaced.

Molde took a chance on Solskjaer agreeing a four-year deal with the former European Champions League winner.

That chance however paid off during his first season in charge as Molde won the Norwegian league title, for the first time in their 100 year history.

An impressive achievement and one which would appear to have not been missed by Wolves owner Steve Morgan, who according to the Daily Mail has installed Solskjaer as his personal favourite for the managerial position at Molineux.

This list reportedly also includes Paul Ince, but the report in the Mail mainly concentrated on the former smiling assassin.

Morgan reportedly wants a young, dynamic coach to drive Wolves forward. Which sounds great, however it is also said that he wants a more 'malleable' manager, or in another words a push over, which sounds far from great at all.

Vital Wolves Comment: Some good deals on Ole Gunnar Solksjaer to become Wolves next permanent manager at the moment.

Stan James and Paddy Power both have him at 50/1.

Let's hope that by Malleable....he doesn't mean......." must be prepared to work with TC"????
Rustmonkey
no rustmonkey it means he won't be guided by some of the ***** fans like you!
johnwolf
I tend to agree with Rustmonkey, johnwolf, but I liked the riposte. I think Solskjaer is exactly the sort of manager we need: he's young and dynamic and, given his pedigree, will have the respect of the players and management. He also seems to have done a great job at Molde with, I suspect, limited resources. And, if Ince is the alternative, I'll contribute to OGS's wages myself.

Your a real keyboard hero John. I bet you wouldn't ******** say that to my face on a matchday???? Why are you even commenting on this anyway John???? Your tongue is still so embedded in MM's arse that he has to walk around like has ***** himself. Seeing the Sh1t you talk......he obviously has. Now, SB. As a player, no question and yes he has pulled off something special for Molde but is he experienced enough???? Look at AVB at Chelsea. English football and it's players are very different to those on the continent. Could he cope with our expectations? I would want an experienced no2 for such a young inexperienced manager. I'm not against him......just a little wary.
Rustmonkey
I'm a bit concerned about that too, Rustmonkey, but it's a completely different situation to the one that AVB faced at Chelsea. We're going to be in the Championship and although there are going to be pressures on him to get us back up, we are not vying for a European place and he will be allowed more slack than AVB was given. And the teams will not be as good ... but isn't that a bit arrogant coming from a supporter of the current WW team?
Southbank60
We certainly have the nucleus of a good team. Whether we can keep them...we can but hope. If....and it's a big if.......if we can keep the best players then we need a defence. Going forward, we will be fine but we need a completely new defence. Foley and zubes may be okay for RB. I do think we'll keep RJ, mainly because nobody will want him. We can only hope he sorts out his attitude and his form. We absolutely must get 1 new CB and a new LB.
Rustmonkey
If we get a young manager with a footballing reputation like Solksjaer, that could encourage star players to stay, at least for a season. I know Ince has a greaton-the-field reputation but he's dead in the water as a manager!
Southbank60
I,m not sure about this?winning the title in Norway?Banksy you could probably coach Stafford Rangers to win that!.It does not prove a thing,I would prefer a proven young manager from UK,just my opinion.
Crete Wolf
Have just switched on Barnsley v WHU in the FA Cup (I didn't know, or care, it was on). There is some kind of ironic pleasure in listening to MM critique the defensive performance of a team. It's always easy when you're only watching Mick, eh?
winstonsmith84
...I know it's not the FA Cup, I was taking the p.
winstonsmith84
I am with Crete here. However, as I had said regarding MM staying or getting fired, it all depends on one man. What can we do? And enough now with this 'arrogant' business, SB; if this takes hold here I will next be accused of being the cause of a phobia in WW supporters' psyche!
