Personally I believe the 'talk-in' at the Fan's Parliament will achieve nothing.
Who exactly will be there anyway and how many will be there? 100? 500? 1,000? 10,000?
If Morgan and his side-kick Moxey want to address the fans then they should do it at Molineux AFTER a home game. Morgan and Moxey will then get a true idea of the frustration and the anger of those who attend home games and who have to put up with a tired and unenthusiastic squad, a manager who it seems is short on ideas/tactics and a Board which shows no ambition other than to keep the books nicely in the black but happily ignoring the fact that the club's position in the League table is becoming more and more precarious with each game.
I must mention the January transfer window where players left for considerable sums but the players that came in cost peanuts. This is just one example of the problem with the club in its current state!
Steve Morgan took Sir Jack Hayward, the fans and everyone who follows Wolves results as fools thinking he could get away with rebuilding the ground and getting plaudits from every Wolves fan for doing so and believing not improving the playing squad with better players would not be noticed. How wrong he was!
With little or no football knowledge of running a club, Morgan relies almost totally upon Moxey to ensure the club is run properly and his favourite toy is keeping the balance sheets in the black but fans don't support balance sheets! Moxey for me defies description for he as much as Morgan is to blame for the current and in most cases the earlier problems which have arisen and for that reason alone he should go and Morgan should do likewise.
Now before the likes of 'Johnwolf' etc start spouting 'but who will buy the club?', no club knows who is interested until an announcement is made, so I that comment won't stand up! Wolves FC may not be the big name it once was but it is still one of the clubs which made English football known throughout Europe and could do so again given the right owner, the right investment and the right people to run it as a football club and not as a profit and loss establishment.
All fans know that football clubs need season on season investment in their playing squads and this costs money.
If Morgan was naive enough to think that Academies can produce numerous players at no cost then he lives in a dream world. Football clubs are in debt for a reason and that reason is 'keeping up with the Joneses'.
Not every club can do so as Leeds and Portsmouth have proved but having a debit balance does not have to mean extinction if managed correctly. Wolves have gone totally the other way and flatly refuse to go into debt and we can all see where the club has gone as a result.
'Speculate to Accumulate' comes to mind but is that a saying that Morgan, Moxey and the Board can handle? It would seem not and Wolves FC will therefore continue to fall from grace and lose fans by the 1000's until the end rapidly approaches, that is unless..... either Morgan et al change their policies OR the club is sold with someone at the helm with 100% Wolves in their blood and in their heart.
The current proprietor obviously has neither and Moxey can say what he likes but his annual pay check is what he cherishes most, just check the latest financial accounts!
So, Wednesday's Fan's Parliament. Will anything really emerge that could change the way the club is run? Will the fans accept what Morgan and Moxey have to say or will there be a protest at the meeting as well as on Friday? Only time will tell but I somehow don't think anything will be changing anytime soon.... except Wolves League position that is, which is heading for the trapdoor!
