Surprised your gap between Hoddle and the Ghost Of Hitler is so big :icon_lol:
Agree with all of that.Mick was great for us and just what we needed in 2006 in the aftermath of Hoddle. I always liked Mick pre-Wolves but that went up a few notches once he was here. He and Nuno are my favourite Wolves managers though he is of course a very different sort of character to Nuno. Those YouTube videos with compilations of his press conferences are great
I never really liked him on TV at any point in his managerial career. I wasn't a lover of his style of perpetuating the dour, 'professional' Yorkshireman. I was completely underwhelmed when he was appointed as our manager, but supported him as he was our manager. He did a good job at the time, but (as I said at the time) we should have parted with him steaight after the Blackburn game.He was good on TV, he isn't now unfortunately. It's really sad.
I'd have put McGhee much lower, probably below Zenga, maybe below Hoddle?.......Arrogant, pretentious twat, he thought he was miles better than he actually was....criminal how poor we did considering the players he had at his disposal.Nuno
(a big gap)
(a fucking huge gap)
The Ghost of Hitler
(still a huge gap)
It would have helped if he didn't have the man management skills of Malcolm Tucker. When you hear those senior players interviewed on the OGC you realise his arrogance was up their with McGhee'sFeel a bit sorry for Solbakken in that list, I was quite excited by his appointment and by the boards instruction of change our style and culture. Unfortunately most of his signings didn't work out or were injury prone. Thought initially we looked like we could play a more possession based game and it was gunna work out but it soon turned sour. The absolute bellend senior pro's we had at the time, plus Solbakkens failure to instill any discipline meant he'd lost the dressing room and the fans by Christmas. I was appalled by the actions of some of our 'fans' towards him (shades of the end of Turners reign).
Personally I think we 'd have stayed up if he'd been given till the end of the season.
Not realising that you needed to take most of those dickheads with you for at least a season before phasing them out was what did him. Compare and contrast how Nuno changed the style post Lambert to how he did it post MMToo many dickheads in the changing room that thought they knew better than the manager screwed us there.
Yeah, I don’t think we could have done much more with him but he definitely has serious talent. Wish he’d scored one of those chances against citeh - might have helped.That clip is essentially what he did in the u23 team a lot. That attitude of his really buggered him up.
