    Last Tuesday Charlton's owner who owns both Standard Liege and Charlton has appointed Israeli , Guy Luzon as manager, a chap he sacked/resigned from Standard Liege in October 2014 !!
    He is only 39 has a decent cv and managed Israel when they beat England 1-0. He was due to be installed in time for Watford away on Saturday but didn't get a work permit in time, so his first match should be us ! new manager syndrome. The fans and players are reportedly underwhelmed.

    This whole situation and Charlton the club got somewhat slated on the FL Show last night. I think this could be a good time to play them esp after their 0-5?

    Weird scenario, gets sacked at one club but then employed by the same guy at another club. Would anyone else fancy being in that scenario?

    Surely if a team get absolutely stuffed and then put a new manager in charge it doesn't mean we can't still beat them the week after? :rolleyes:

    People can say what they like about Steve Morgan but we are lucky to have him!

    We were lucky to have Sir Jack before him and hopefully people will understand what we have at Wolves and get 100% behind our owner.

    Yesterday's tribute proved the love everyone has for Wolves and I have always been a supporter of my home town club. I trust our owner and I believe our future is in safe hands.

    Here here!

    Not a week seems to go by without a bizarre story revolving around a club's ownership - and more often than not it's a foreign owner with some crackpot ideas of how to run a club.

    I don't claim to be Steve Morgan's biggest fan but we should be grateful for what we have and for those who persist in the constant criticism of our owner, be careful what you wish for.....

    Would anyone really give our position up in exchange for the 'ownership circus' at Watford, Charlton, Blackpool, Leeds, Blues, Cardiff or to a lesser extent Villa?

    For every one of the above though you could say well what about Southampton, Swansea, Stoke, West Brom, Tottenham who all have good owners who are appreciated by their fans.

    I know a certain section of Albion fans slaughtered Jeremy Peace a few years ago but I bet they've enjoyed the last 3 or 4 seasons more than we have, let's be honest.

    Also, I'm pretty sure any Wolves fan would take the owners of Man City & Chelsea (both similar sized clubs to us prior to getting backed by mega rich owners) wouldn't they? People from other clubs always moan about Abramovich and Sheikh Mansour but I wouldn't mind seeing Diego Costa or Sergio Aguero banging goals in every week down the Molineux let me tell you that for nothing!!

    He is a manager more suited to Italy.

    I don't find the likes of Manchester city and chelsea appealing or attractive at all to be honest.

    Money might bring success but it can't buy class :)

    Blooze were tonked 8-0 by Bournemouth, then we drew 0-0 with them. I consider all these games potential banana skins. 40 years of Wolves experience has kneaded me taht way.

    How many people have moaned about us having overpaid mercenaries at the club in the past? Or doesn't it matter when you're cruising in the upper echelons of the Premier League?

    I wouldn't exactly call Aguero, Costa and the like mercenaries. They are world class players who get paid in correlation to their talent. If a chairman of a club wants to win silverware, they buy these sorts of players and pay them accordingly. That's just modern football.

    But would they be at Man. City if it wasn't for the wages that are on offer in the first place? Therefore the phrase "only there for the money" could be applied & as such IMO they're mercenaries. Barcelona, Real Madrid, Man. United, (Liverpool of old) are teams who you'd expect, through tradition, to be able to attract the "top" players whereas the likes of Man. City & Chelsea through their multi billion pound benefactors have now blurred the lines between what is a big club & who are being bankrolled to success

    Its a long time ago since Celtic won the European cup when all but one player of their 15 man squad was born within 10 miles of the ground !

    I'm not disputing that but would anyone really care? Barcelona, Real Madrid and Man United all have history but players still go there because they know they will earn mega money.

    If Wolves won the Premier League and were a force in the Champions League would anyone seriously moan about that? Isn't that the end game? Isn't that what we all want?

    Money is everything in football, that's just the way it is now. If Wolves were top dogs though I certainly wouldn't be complaining.

    Bring on the billionaires I say!

    Man City's season tickets behind the goals were nearly £200 cheaper than ours in the Premier League.

    £522 for Wolves vs £329 for Man City.

    That was for new fans as well. Think loyal fans got an early bird.

    Average ticket prices were about £27/£28. We charged £34 for games against any 'big' clubs and local derbies.
