On Wednesday Crewe Alexandra manager Steve Davis became the new favourite for the head coach role at Wolverhampton Wanderers.
For the neutrals his inclusion in the Wolves short-list might have raised a few eyebrows, especially considering when you've got the likes of former Millwall manager Kenny Jackett and former England boss Steve McClaren's CV's sitting on Jez Moxey's office desk.
However once you consider that the 47-year-old is a self confessed Wolves fan and has experience of the lower leagues (however brief), then perhaps he could be an ideal candidate?
The bookies certainly seem to think so as he remains at evens with the likes of Sky Bet, Paddy Powe and Stan James.
But reports from the BBC that he had had his second interview regarding the job yesterday appears to be wide of the mark.
If he had spoke to the likes of Wolves head of football development and recruitment Kevin Thelwell who has been leading the process, or chief executive Jez Moxey or even chairman Steve Morgan, Wolves would have had to have made a formal approach to Crewe's chairman to speak to Davis and that doesn't appear to have happened.
Speaking to the Express & Star Davis said: 'We have a relationship I trust and an understanding that if there were anything of interest to tell me about, the chairman would do so.
"I have not heard a thing from him so I have nothing to discuss."
