All this time we’ve been struggling for results and all Wolves had to do was name 59-year-old Wolves owner Steve Morgan in the starting line-up and everything would have been fine.

Surrounded by security stewards, Morgan left the stadium an hour and a half after the full time whistle and was approached by supporters.

He went on to defend the hunt for new manager process (which was of course a shambles), by saying that Steve Bruce had actually wasted four days after initially accepting the job.

According to the Telegraph Morgan told supporters: ‘I’ll face you anytime. He (Bruce) accepted the job – he accepted it. He took four days off the process.

Then talking about the Blackburn game specifically, Morgan went on to basically insult our whole team claiming he personally could have done better.

He continued: ‘Do you know what? I wasn’t on the pitch today – otherwise we would have scored.

‘We could have had four goals in the second-half, but that’s confidence.’

Unsurprisingly Wolves moved to clarify the comments rather quickly and a statement from Club spokesman, Matt Grayson has now appeared on Wolves Official Website which reads: ‘Despite what has been reported today, our Chairman did not say Steve Bruce turned down the Manager’s job and subsequently held up the process.

‘It’s on the record the managerial role was offered to one person, before Terry Connor was appointed manager, and we can confirm that wasn’t Steve Bruce.

‘We don’t make a habit of addressing every piece of media speculation, however, Steve Bruce is a fine man and manager and it was important to us to attempt to clear this matter up.’

Vital Wolves Comment: We can only assume that because the club has moved to clarify the comments in the national press about Steve Bruce, then the comment about Morgan perhaps lacing up his boots and going up front next week could indeed be true.

And what do we have to lose, the footballing world are already laughing at us anyway.
