Fours years to the day!!! What a brilliant job he's done!! YOU ARE MERLIN THE MAGICIAN!!!!
Well said Bahama . . .he is becoming a Wolves legend. Without wishing to cause any rancour on here, but surely the Paul Ince supporters would have to conceed that we got the right man for our beloved club!
I remember it well... (not the date - the day) - could go down in history as a critical turning point...
Happy Anniversary Mick
4 years? Doesn't time fly when your having fun.
I was overjoyed the day he became manager and I'm over the moon now.
Mind you the addition of Steve Morgan and his financial support has without doubt added to the equation.
Loved every minute of it. Long may it continue.
All raise a glass to merlin!
:adore: We're not worthy.... :adore:
Steve Morgan and his financial input has made a massive difference, but don't forget the first year when Mick was left with sweet fa in terms of playing staff by Glenda.
He performed miracles getting us in the top 6 that year and has continued onwards and upwards ever since. Long may it carry on.
Congrats Mick not least for ridding this board of the deeply tiresome repetitive naysayers....of course they'll have their day again, but thanks for everything you've done, and for giving me my club back.
"Thick Mick" as those not in the know call him, has been the greatest "football managerial" influence on our team and our city since Bill McGarry............. and those days were fun! May those days on the horizon also be fun! :beer: arty:
Well said Salty, he certainly deserves my respect!
Like many on here not happy with MM for long periods (remember all the MM out threads). But he has turned the club around led, it has to be said, by the monetary input and professional approach to the running of the club by SM. Amazingly in such a short period of time it does feel in all respects we are a genuine Prem club now and moving steadily in the right direction. Happy days indeed!
Pleased to say I only wavered after the wigan game, and even then it was emotional vitriol. Been very happy with Mick from day one and pleased with not necessarily the input of finance- we've had that before- but the stability and consistency under Morgan that we lacked under the previous ownership. Happy anniversary Mick.
Mick, Morgan and Moxey could prove to be the greatest influences on our club for decades! Cum on!
Happy with Mick and all he has done. he has been a fantatstic influence at our club.....long may it continue!!
Come on the Wolves
Same here, that was the only point in the season I "lost faith" so to speak. It's fantastic that I was proved monumentally wrong.
All together now: Super, super Mick...
Always loved wolves since i was a wee bairn, watching John Richards, the Doog, Hibbitt, Bailey and the rest.
But never ever been so proud of a Wolves team as this. They play with their heart and soul, and no little talent. McCarthy has created that........
I was disappointed when Mick was appointed manager. I thought he would be able to get us promoted but I was not convinced that he would be able to keep us in the Premier League. Obviously he has proved me wrong - something that I am very happy about.
Let's hope it lasts for many years.
On a separate point. We played Crewe in a friendly a day or two after Mick's appointment. After the match Mick was being interviewed and after the interview came over to sign autographs. He spoke to my son and let us take a photo of him and my son, something which my lad has never forgotten. He gained a lot of respect from me that day, purely because he took the time to talk to us.
I always have a look on here now and again to see where Mick's "position" is.
It really does highlight how bad the chopping and changing that goes on in football is (and how glad I am that we aren't one of those clubs anymore), but also illustrates how things have changed at Wolves that we have a manager that's been here for several years and you can't see us parting any time soon. Great to see Mick's name alongside some pretty good company.
A great day for all only surpassed when they didn`t give in to the `outers` after a failure to get promoted.
I asked a few questions at times but never wanted him gone, mostly from my Dad who never stopped going on about how good he could be if given the chance and what a great bloke he is. My Dad wanted to hit Keane when he stirred up the crap and he was in his eighties..
Jesus!!! I cannot believe he's got that high on that list after "only" 4 years!! sad indictment on football generally like you say - but what an achievement Mick... and Wolves...
Looking at that list of managers, it surprised me to see Dave Jones in the top 6 of that particular league table. Chairmen don't hang around when it comes to giving managers the sack, do they? I knew it was bad but didn't realise just how bad.
As for McCarthy, everyone must be feeling thankful that he didn't take the South Korea job when it was offered. Kudos to Morgan for offering him an improved contract when it would have been reaaly easy at that time to say thanks for everything and good luck. No doubt we'd still be marroned in the division from hell had things turned out differently.
I admit to wanting Ince at the time,but boy am i glad MM was appointed.
I have been impressed since day one, and have said before and now that he is the best thing to happen to Wolves in years, infact decades.
I get the feeling he may get itchy feet though in a year or two, whatever happens. Having said that, footy is a fickle business and he knows if we go down he will probably go. Though I would even then prefer him to stay. I think we can stay up again and exciting times lie ahead with the stadium development. You really do feel this is a club on the up, with all elements of the club pulling together. Its a rare,but fantastic feeling at Wolves.
Super, super Mick, Super, super Mick, Super, super Mick, Super Mick McCarthy!
A thread on the day he was appointed. To be fair, in the poll, most were firmly in the for column.
I think you exagerate somewhat...
I would say it was the minority on here... I famously lost the faith after the Blues at home game. Mick proved me wrong inside 3 games, from then I will never question this guy.
Well done Super Mick here's to another 4
I've not been happy with him on lots of occasions over the last 3 years and did want him out twice last season, i'll more than likely have a moan next season about a few thing but over the whole four years he's done a great job from the rubbish we had seen under hoddle so i have to congratulate him for that.
Here's to another 4, and further 4 after that Obviously he won't be around forever but this club has taken nothing but steps forward since he was appointed. He's the best manager fit for this club and he's delivered what every Wolves fan has always wanted.. a young and hungry team. Long may it continue.
I would argue Graham Turner had just as big an impact on Wolves and the city as MM has. So would John Barnwell too but for a cruel twist of fate.
Mick has done great. Proved doubters like me wrong.
that had to hurt
Congrats on the 4 years Super Mick.
I'll admit there have been times i thought he had taken us as far as he could, never more so than Jan this year. However i am so so glad that he has proved me wrong.
There will no doubt be times this season when i will question him again, but at the end of the day thats football. During those times i, along with others on here, need to take a step back and look at the bigger picture. What this bloke, along with Jez and Steve M have achieved already at this club is nothing short of miraculous when you consider where we were just 4 years ago.
Never in my lifetime, except for maybe the early Bully years, have i been as proud to support Wolves, proud of the players that bust a gut each week to represent us on the pitch, and proud of our no nonsense, tell it like it is manager.
If, and its still a massive if, things go to plan this season and we stay up, i genuinely believe this year could be a pinnacle year in our clubs history and we will press on and on. 20 years from now when we have just won our 3rd premiership title in a row, infront of our 50k state of the art stadium we will look back at this period in our history as the turning point.
Well done Mick, you will always from now on have my respect, you have more than earnt it.
Bloody hell... I'd be quite happy doing a Villa and getting into the Europa League
Yeh it did a little i've always been fair though, last season i always said well done if i thought he'd got it right and if i thought he'd got it wrong like he did on a couple of occasions then i'll have a moan.
