I'm sure Dean is now fighting to stay in his Job, the squad appear to be disunighted and at times totally out of there depth, I think the blame can get shared around The coach and his team the CEO and The Director of Football, Oh and those who put the Jeresy on I'm glad I haven't got to rely on this Flakey bunch for my job.

My major concern, other than the abject performances, is we have arguably the best centre half in premier league history as coach yet our defence is akin to the keystone cops

Sorry Dean, but after the final he should be removed. Then hold our noses and ask Sam to come in and save us.


Fucking hell no. No no no no.


No

Wolves new owners showed they meant business by employing someone who had managed in European knockout football, finished runners up in a league and had worked miracles with a tiny club. We employed someone who had finished mid table in the Championship. 

As much as I like Smith, he is very limited and working miles above anything he's done before and it's showing.

Eventually we are going to have to entice a really good manager to work with us because for the past 10 years we've had a selection of shit ones.

We know things have got bad when we are comparing what life might be like with Steve Bruce

Anyone really expecting Smith to get sacked before the end of the season?


No chance whatsoever. I think he stays even if we go down too.

I really hope not, at some point this club has got to start planning to be a successful Premier League club.

Where do we draw the line?

He won’t get the boot this season and might not if we go down. It is debatable though that he should go now

If you get relegated you should get the sack. You have failed and the performances have been poor.

No

Sam fucking Allardyce. Time to knock it on the head for me if that happens.

Still, the local stationery firms should do well with sales of Jiffy bags and brown envelopes.

I think we're going down if he remains. If by some miracle we win the League Cup next week i would keep him on and let him have a go at getting us back up which i think he's capable of. If we lose next week that would be the point where we could seriously think about a change but would it be too late? Would we make the right choice? You'd like to think that considering how well he did last season and that we have seen glimmers of guts and quality this season that he would get the chance to have another go next season, but in the modern football world there is so much money riding on it that it's not really practical. The owners have money and ambition and if we can get someone in that clearly has a more impressive CV and bigger presence in the game then we're surely going to have to. But do we go for someone as a quick fix (not necessarily Alladyce but that sort) in the hope of a very quick turnaround or do we go for a longer term plan? I suppose it depends who's available.

No not necessarily. Burnley kept faith with Dyche and came back up. Smith has only been in charge just over a year. That's not long enough and may be he  promoted us too early without an organic team and proper plan and now that is showing up. We do need to keep over nerves steady now.

I guess we'll find out over the next couple of games whether his calling out of the players was the act of a strong manager imposing some discipline or the last roll of the dice by a desperate man. I'm not too hopeful.
