Bet365 have installed Paul Ince as unsurprising 6/4 favourite to become the next Wolves manager

Spokesman Steve Freeth has said
‘Paul Ince has never hidden the fact that he wants to go into management and he’d have the respect of the players as well as being a popular appointment with the fans.

‘He looks a worthy favourite.’

And that he does, but has the opportunity come too soon for him ?

The man in question has made no secret of his desire to one day manage the club that as a player, he led to the Premiership and once again lead them back to former glories, but would taking over such a high profile, high pressure job whilst still studying the finer points of the trade be a case of running before he can walk?

And in turn, wasn’t that what they said about Stuart Pearce?

Vital Wolves would welcome his appointment as a step in teh right direction after the false dawn of Glenn Hoddle’s tenure, but his isn’t the only name being thrown in the hat.

Current assistant Stuart Gray has stated already made it clear he has designs on the job, Mick McArthy is (unfortunately) being talked about as another potential candidate, and Stuart Baxter’s name has, as it always does, been touted about, despite only having just been announced as manager of Helsingborgs.

But after yet another phase of the clubs history ending in failure that had, if only for a brief period, once promised so much there is a pressing need for Wolverhampton Wanderers to get it right this time, and appoint the best man for the job.

And the bookies already have him as favourite.
