It’s time to draw a line. We were in the Premier League and now we are in League One. We are going to Crawley next year. The club is financially ‘well run’ (entirely risk-averse) but gross incompetence in the management of personnel, and specifically the hiring and firing of the Manager, are the direct cause of our back-to-back relegations.
Ever since McCarthy’s sacking (ok, before that) Wolves have blundered from one disaster to the next; from one poor decision to another. It was clear when Morgan met with supporters at a recent Fans Parliament that he both has the best interests of the club at heart, and absolutely no idea how it’s all gone so wrong. I’ll give him a helping hand…
McCarthy stayed through a difficult spell in the Premier League at Christmas only to be replaced by his well meaning but completely ineffective assistant when it would have been too late for any new manager – however – good to make a difference. After the inevitable relegation, ineffective assistant is sacked and a grand vision is announced. Stale Solbakken comes in; the players don’t really like it, play insultingly badly and the vision is discarded. At least this time it’s before the transfer window. Time to bring in a strong Manager and invest and restart that play off push…No, time for Dean Saunders and to try and strengthen the team through loan signings only. Hello relegation number two.
However, we have a new manager and it’s time to draw a line under the past. It’s time to forgive those players who have to or are willing to stay. It’s time to forgive Morgan. It’s even time to forgive Moxey. It’s time to forget, just a bit. I shall allude no more to past inadequacies. The question is can the future be any different? I’ll be looking at that in my next post.
