I agree that there have been some good performances this season, but I think our current position in the table is more a reflection of how bad some of the teams below us have been (particularly Hull & Burnley) and also the fact that Pompey have imploded, rather than any reflection of the genius that MM possesses. Even though we currently sit in 14th position we are still only 3 points from a relegation spot with only our goal difference giving us any kind of security over the teams below us. If we do finish mid-table by stringing a couple of wins together before the end of the season then great, but MM hasn't displayed any signs that indicate that he can lift this side from a technical/tactical point of view. If we have aspirations of challenging the top half of the table in the next few years then we need to be looking at managers of a slightly higher calibre who can challenge the likes of Mancini, O'Neill, Moyes, Redknapp et al on a tactical level, and I personally don't think Mick has that in him. I don't think MM should be sacked on basis of under-performance. His achievements should be acknowledged and at the same time he should be encouraged to stand-aside in the interests of furthering the progress of Wolverhampton Wanderers (which would coincide with him walking out the exit door with a nice payout). A 1970 Bedford Bus might be sufficient to get a team to-and-from matches in the lower divisions but when it comes to competing at the highest level (including Europe) the Bedford simply isn't going to cut it and the club would need to upgrade its equipment. Coaching staff are like pieces of equipment, they can perform to a certain level but if you want to move past that level, you need to be better equipped with more refined and more flexible tools. Whilst MM is most certainly a tool, he's not the right type to get us any higher in this division. Just my thoughts (in a totally non-negative way).

A number of people on here said at the end of previous seasons that he'd taken us as far as he could and we're now looking like finishing mid-table in one of the world's best leagues. Presumably this continues every season until it goes wrong and all the nay-sayers can say "See, I told you Mick was no good." Even a stopped clock is right twice a day. I don't see what the goals-for total has got to do with it when points win prizes. Remember "One nil to the Arsenal?" If MM gets sacked for what he's done this season then we should all be worried about our jobs as no one is safe. There have been plenty of good performances this season season to make it enjoyable, and almost offset the tedium of negativity from so-called Wolves fans.

The intention of my email was to explore what people think we need to do in terms of us consolidating our position in the Premier League? One argument is that MM has taken us as far as possible and we need someone with different ideas / skills to take us to the next level. Another is that MM has had his best ever year in the Prem, has learned a lot and should be given an opportunity next season to improve the team further. It will be interesting to see who MM buys in the summer, hopefully he can get most of the money back on the Hoff, Halford and Surman. Cash in on SEB his heart doesn't seem to be in it for us anymore.

Maybe so, but what are the chances of that happening? How can we get rid of "our best Manager in 30 years"? Next year with more confidence, our run won't be built upon our defence like this year (which has been pretty good in comparison to others). With a bit more dosh and quality MM may be able to build the squad, but will he spend wisely enough? I can't see him being booted unless we are in trouble. It will be a big call if he is let go. ________________________________ Subject: RE: [NSWolves] MM to be replaced at end of season?

Who thinks we should replace MM at the end of the season? Let's face it 10 goals in all home games this season is not going to be acceptable again!! As for the 4-5-1 tactics that have apparently saved our season, these will not work again next season. Other Manager's now know how we play and will change tactics to beat us. As much as I like the man I think he has taken us as far as he can and is capable of. He should be given a big pat on the back, a nice golden handshake and sent on his way. Moxey can join him at the Taxi rank as well. Time for a new broom and fresh ideas.
