Top 10 candidates (well, 12 actually) to be the next Wolves manager

Who would want to manage Wolves right now? Joleon Lescott (Everton), Seol Hi-Kyeon (Reading), Mark Kennedy (Crystal Palace), Colin Cameron (Coventry City) and Kenny Miller (Celtic) have all jumped ship, leaving the squad looking barer than Marco Materazzi’s MySpace friends list.

There’s no money to spend (which seems to be why Glenn Hoddle left in such a hurry) and to top it all young striker Chris Cornes has been handed a six-month ban for cocaine use. Despite all this, the Wolves board think they’ve found 12 foolish brave men willing to drink from the Championship’s most poisoned chalice…

Top 10 (well, 12 actually) candidates to be the next Wolves manager continued…

Based on pure speculation, and in no particular order, they may or may not be:

Stuart Gray (because he’ll do it cheap)
2 Paul Ince (ditto)

Gary Megson

Mick McCarthy

Stuart Baxter (because he’s always mentioned)

Nigel Worthington

Steve Cotterill

Joe Royle

Dario Gradi

Tony Mowbray (doing a good job at Hibs, assisted by Mark Venus)

Mike Newell

Alan Curbishley

Several misty-eyed Wolves fans have also put their hard earned money on Steve Bull for the job, causing bookmakers to laugh loudly, rub their hands together like Fagin and then cut Bull’s odds from 50-1 to 14-1, just in case.

Wolves fans, who would you like to see replace Hoddle?
