Ever since Wolves opted to end their management debacle by offering the job to the only man willing to take it rumours have been rife that Steve Morgan is ready to offer Terry Connor the life raft he so badly needs and let him drift away from the management game before he drowns.
The only thing that seems to be keeping Connor in a job is the same reason he finds himself in the role in the first place, nobody else wants the job.
As Wolves owner Steve Morgan seems to quickly be learning what everybody else in football already knew, that sacking McCarthy at such a late stage of the season was a terrible decision, the list of willing replacements for Connor amongst experienced managers seems to be incredibly short. However one man is refusing to rule himself out of the running, and that man is none other than his predecessor Mick McCarthy. The Yorkshire man in an article in The Sun, says of a possible return;
“I would never say never, that’s all I can say. Stranger things have happened in football — Carlos Tevez, for example, is back playing for Manchester City.”
If Mick McCarthy is willing to return to his former home pride must surely be the only reason for Morgan and Moxey not to make this change now to ensure Wolves have at the least the narrowest hope of survival.
One relegation threatened side who already seem to be starting their plans for next season are Steve Kean’s Blackburn side.
Junior Hoilett’s departure in the summer from the Premiership strugglers seems to be inevitable now, and The Mirror suggest that Steve Kean’s men are lining up French under-21 international Wahbi Khazri as the Candian’s replacement. Reports suggest that SC Bastia’s Khazri is valued at around £1 million after impressing this season. However Blackburn fans are likely to be disappointed that a more established name is not being lined up to replace one of their few star players.
Arsenal have long being rumoured to be interested in Blackburn’s Hoilett and this could become a more pressing line of inquiry after they seem have missed out on long-term target Mario Gotze. The Sun reports that Gotze has signed a new long-tern deal with his current side Borussia Dortmund, bringing an end to the speculation surrounding his future… for the time being at least
