It hasn't been a great couple of days for Ståle Solbakken. Yesterday he woke up to the news that his car had been vandalised and today he wakes up to reports of his possible replacements at Molineux.
There has been nothing to suggest from the Wolves hierarchy that Solbakken is under pressure for his job, although reports in Express & Star about the players being unhappy about his tactics, might suggest that he has possibly lost the dressing room.
The report said that the players had queried why Bakary Sako hasn`t been substituted when clearly tired and the use of zonal marking.
Solbakken obviously denied the reports, telling Wolves Official Website: "We had an open dialogue, which is normal, and it was nothing to do with a lot of the reasons mentioned in this report.'
The key phrase there is 'a lot of the reasons', which would indicate that perhaps, some of the report may have been accurate.
But of course we don't know the context in which the team meeting was taken, if players are shouting and asking questions, then there is an issue. If it's a quiet thoughtful, brainstorming exercise then it would perhaps indicate good team unity with players caring about the situation they are in.
We simply do not know, but many would suggest that there isn't smoke without fire.
The Daily Express certainly seem to think so and they have linked Gordon Strachan with a move to Wolves.
The former Celtic manager is the current favourite for the Scotland job, but according to the paper: 'it is understood the former Celtic boss will be in the running for the Molineux post if results don`t improve under Solbakken'.
With a difficult week behind him, Solbakken will be really hoping his side can turn around a run of nine games without a win away to Bristol City tomorrow.
