Odds are that Wolverhampton Wanderers will be playing in League One next season.
Back-to-back relegations from the Premier League to the third tier, for the second time in the clubs history, a record that no other club in the history of football can claim.
Quite naturally the finger of blame is being pointed. Former managers Mick McCarthy, Terry Connor, Ståle Solbakken and Dean Saunders will all take their share of the blame.
But Solbakken has also gone public to point blame at owner Steve Morgan.
It's probably fair to say that in years to come not many will remember Ståle Solbakken, he lasted less than eight months in the Molineux hot seat, an odd selection by the Wolves board, certainly a gamble and not one that ever really showed signs of working.
He made a few decent signings, but our Championship form was terrible and when players are still talking about the Premier League relegation hangover in January you know something is deeply wrong in the sides mindset.
That said, he was appointed with a long term vision and that vision could never be played out in such a short period of time.
'I have no confidence in the owner. He`s a fantastic businessman and he could be a good owner if he had someone competent to deal with the footballing side of things.' he told the Express & Star.
He continued: "Morgan hired me because he wanted to build a new culture, create a new identity and make sure the club wasn`t ridiculed if given another chance in the Premier League.
"It was surprising that he thought this would be done in 15 minutes. My intention was to build a team over three transfer windows and get the right balance in the squad.
"But he got tired and went back to the previous culture. It still hurts."
Obviously he's still bitter, but is he right? The change of 'culture' was never going to be a seamless one, it's not something that could be done overnight, so if that's the route you decide to take why change it so quickly?
All it did was create a mess, a mess that has led to relegation to League One.
