Ståle Solbakken to take Wolves job?

Ståle Solbakken to take Wolves job?

The eagle eyed amongst you will have noticed that on Vital Wolves we have chucked in the name Ståle Solbakken as one of the favourites for the Molineux job.

This name wasn't just plucked out of the air for no reason, this man has real credentials, all-be-it in Europe.

The 44-year-old has won five league titles in Denmark with Copenhagen, winning the Danish Superliga in 2005-06, 2006-07, 2008-09, 2009-10 and 2010-11, he also won the Danish Cup in 2009.

His record earned him a move to Bundesliga side FC Köln, but after just one year in charge he is now out of work.

Since we mentioned him in passing, his odds have been slashed to just 1/5 with SkyBet: 'We can only assume these punters know something we don't as there's little in the public domain linking Solbakken to the job and he's hardly a well-known figure in England.' Sky Bet Football Trader Paul Lowery told TeamTalk.

He continued: 'The nature of the bets is also somewhat telling with a few new accounts created and used solely for this market.'

Is a real contender? Who knows, but the whispers we heard are probably the reason why his odds have fallen so dramatically recently.

He was just sacked from a relegated Mickey Mouse league team.....real credentials?? so he won a few titles.....sounds like Gregory could win in that league too. No offence but atleast Solksjaar has played in the best team in the Prem and knows the game.....what does this guy know about getting us out of this myre? lets at least bring in a manager who knows English football.

Hoddle was the worst manager we had in years. instead of slagging us off.....why don't you actually put your two pence worth in and name your next manager, assistant and a few players that we can realisticly attract. Come on JW....put your money where ya mouth is.....Name names.......(waiting with baited breath)

I dont think there is a manager out there with that big a name to fit in that mouth. Cant understand all the hatred from one who professess to be old and wise and a Wolves fan, I am begining to think JW is not one of us, but a baggie sent to rile.
