Alan Green: Wolves could be bitten after sacking Mick McCarthy

I like going to Molineux. I like Wolves’ supporters except when they’re dishing out stick to a manager that doesn’t deserve it, ie: Mick McCarthy.

But recent days have turned the club, or at least the people running it, into a complete laughing stock. I didn’t hold with sacking McCarthy, particularly in its timing.

If you think you need to change the manager shouldn’t it be done in January when the new man can assess resources and, if necessary, bring new players in?

And, if you emphasis the need for “experience”, where does Terry Connor fit in that scenario?

He might be a decent coach and has been around the place for 11 or so years but how does that qualify him to suddenly become the boss man?

And why did so many others, of “experience”, such as Alan Curbishley and Walter Smith turn away?

The word is the Wolves hierarchy only wanted a short-term appointment with the offer of a modest reward for keeping the club in the Premier League: hardly attractive to any manager of status, either in or out of work; though I’m glad Connor had a decent start.
