Terry Connor interviewed for manager`s job

When Wolves announced that Terry Connor would be taking over at Molineux until the end of the season few were happy.

A couple of people might have been relieved to just see the farce that our managerial search had become come to an end and I was quite pleased to have made some money on betting on Connor getting given the nod.

But no-one was really happy happy about the situation.

The fans choice was Alan Curbishley, the fans choice probably still remains Alan Curbishley and Alan Curbishley has recently stated he would be interested in the summer.

However Wolves owner Steve Morgan and chief executive Jez Moxey have always had their own ideas and on Monday they held a formal interview with Terry Connor to take over as manager on a permanent basis.

"I went up to meet with Steve and Jez because I was asked to go there to speak to them, That`s what I did and then I went on to the Wigan game because we play them next - I carried on my duties if you like, watched the game and came back.

"I oversaw training and testing yesterday and I`ll carry on until May 13." Connor told the Express & Star.

He continued: 'I went up for a chat. I`m not prepared to discuss what we actually said.

"We discussed what we discussed. Now we`ll finish off the season and we`ll see what happens.'

Everyone pretty much expected that the 49-year-old would step aside at the end of the season, but now we have the real prospect that he could be the man to steer our Championship challenge next season.

So far he is the only person to be formally interviewed, while speculation has previously linked Blackpool's Ian Holloway to the position.

The Alan Curbishley link appears to have gone quiet for now, while few other contenders have grabbed the imagination.

Darren Ferguson is the favourite with SkyBet to be in charge on the opening day of the season. Lee Clark, Stale Solbakken and Gus Poyet all hold short odds while Terry Connor is 6th favourite at 8/1.

Interview him as a courtesy and then let him down gently as you offer the job to someone capable of getting you back in the Prem.i wont say how terribly your club has been run in the last few months because you already know that.

You do know that he will get the job? Either that or it's a ploy to bring Gary Megson in with TC as coach. ******** Moxey is a joke.

Just tried to put a bet on for the worst can scenario......Megson and TC..... Told by the bookies that all bets are off!!!!!!! Could get a bet on West Brom though......what do they know that we don't?

Before February I would have laughed you off the field... now I have a very uneasy situation that that the two *** 's at the top will indeed save a small fortune and make this totally inappropriate appointment. When will this farce end. I certainly wont be spending a penny more on the club if this is the way 'forward'
