What’s up? Just who will win the race for the next Wolves manager? Please tell me, mr Flea!
That’s what I get wherever I jump nowadays. If you believe Daily Mail both Bruce and Curbishley has said thanks, but no thanks to a thirteen week appointment. Well. They are well-informed! Have they got a bug in the conference room? Who out of Moxey and Morgan are leaking to the press?
Actually I believe the right question to ask yourselves is: Can we trust the tabloids? The thing is that Moxey and Morgan are known to be very secretive about conducting their business. It’s paramount that not a word comes out from these negotiations. So the media has nothing to write about and of course they will write nothing. Right? No, wrong!
If media gets no information they will create news themselves. The reporters have a pressure from above to write at least an article a day about the Wolves search for a new manager. Supporters are starved on information and jumps on everything written about it and in their enthusiasm they become uncritical readers.
Well, not all of us, but enough to sell newspapers and ads. So who WILL be our next manager? All Moxey has said is that they are looking for a manager who has managed on the highest level and fits the Wolves DNA and that they want the man in charge before the Newcastle game. That means an unemployed manager with Premier League experience. Exactly how they check the DNA matching I haven’t got a clue
Not many of them out there, anyway. Bruce, Curbs, Ericsson, Benitez. Probably not Jones or Ince, not enough experience. Some say Benitez is out of our league, I believe not. Morgan said that Curbs fits the bill. Benitez fitted the bill at Pool for him. Ericsson? Got the experience, but what about the DNA? Should not what once was good enough for England be good enough for us. Our history says no!
Bruce and Curbishley still looks as the two main candidates, but the two others could be black horses in the race. When will we know? I thought Friday or Monday at first, but now my interpretation of mr Moxey say it could go on for longer. Let’s hope for Monday, though, I’m tired of waiting and of all the rumours!
