A blueprint to make Wolves great again

A blueprint to make Wolves great again

Next week, Wolverhampton Wanderers chairman Steve Morgan, CEO Jez Moxey and manager Dean Saunders will draw up the blueprint to make Wolves great once more.

Depending on results at the weekend, this blueprint will either begin with plans in the third tier of English football for the first time since 1989 or if a remarkable set of results transpire to save Wolves, then the rebuilding exercise will start again in the Championship next season.

"Once we have got through this week we will have a meeting. Jez, me and the chairman will draw a plan up - a blueprint - whether we are in the Championship or in League One, to get the club great again. That`s what I want to do. If we don`t stay in the league it will just take me a bit longer." manager Dean Saunders told the Birmingham Mail.

Premier League parachute payments continue following our relegation from the top flights just 12 months ago, this will mean that Wolves accounts will be helped to the tune of another £16 million next season and two payments of £8 million over the following couple of seasons.

In total Wolves will receive £48 million over four years following last seasons relegation. It certainly helps to cushion the blow.

But with a £25 million wage bill, that simply isn't sustainable, not in the Championship and certainly not in League One.

Relegation will however trigger a mass exodus from Molineux, for instance, Kaspars Gorkss was only ever going to join on a permanent basis if we survived in the Championship and other players will not remain if we drop down another division.

Saunders continued: "I`d imagine a lot of the players won`t want to stay.

"They won`t want to be playing in League One, so if that happens we will talk about it. But at the moment we have to concentrate on Saturday because it might not happen. Just do what we can control and that`s winning."

Blueprint point one. Sell club to an owner with ambition. Blueprint point two. Sack current CEO. Blueprint point three. Hire a manager, not a big noter who will never deliver as long as his bum points to the ground.

Is there anyone (other than Bully) who thinks DS is the man for the job... or ever thought he was? He's clearly clueless, looks genuinely frightened on match-days, and then compounds it all by insulting people who have paid to watch the turgid fare, by trotting out a list of deluded ramblings.His appointment was the last in a list of atrocious managerial decisions that have brought us to this inevitable conclusion to our season. Hoofball was the answer? Apparently not... again.

The point at which our fortunes turned was the moment the chairman stormed into the dressing room after the Liverpool defeat and completely undermine the manager. Since then it has been all downhill! I was undecided about McCarthy, I think we should have expected more from a third season of Premier League cash than yet another relegation fight. Maybe he had taken it as far as he could? In fairness to MM, no-one could have predicted how totally inept and useless Roger Johnson would turn out to be. Making him captain was another shocking decision - must have pleased the existing players no end... I was at the West Brom debacle, he had to go after that and it was obvious as we left the ground. TC was NEVER going to change anything, obvious form day 1, how could he - same old approach but without MM's experience. Why couldn't the brains in charge have worked that out? With regard to DS, I like him but not sure constantly telling the opposition prior to the early games that we were scarred of them and had no confidence was a great idea. Several managers have said that they knew if they could get the first goal they would beat us. And so did I. God knows how the next few months will pan out but I will keep supporting my boyhood team and pray that we can turn it around, after all we've been building for the future for quite a while now, haven't we?

moxey is too big a parasite for us to function properly, and morgan is absolutely clueless ... for those who speak of the worry of Morgan withdrawing his millions, I say HE HAS NEVER PARTED WITH A PENNY ... he has used WWFC to supplement his flagging fortunes at Redrow ... Speaking of clueless, well for me Saunders completes the three amigos ... Stay with them, and we really have seen the last of Wolves in the prem . I will always support The Wolves, but Morgan isnt getting a penny from me ever again.
