You know your position must be bad when rumours are linking other people with your job before you’ve even departed.

But it seems a common theme for Wolves gaffer Ståle Solbakken, back in November Gordon Strachan all of a sudden was being whispered as a possible replacement.

Now over a month on and Sean O’Driscoll has been linked by internet rumours with a move to Molineux.

Not bad for someone who has only been in the role for eight months. But it would seem that Solbakken could be on the brink, he appears to have lost a good percentage of the fans and the board will have to make a decision soon.

Will they stand by their man like they did with Mick McCarthy for so long? Or will they make a change before things get worse?

O’Driscoll has had a bizarre year and a bit in football. He was sacked as manager of Doncaster Rovers in September 2011 after leading them into the second tier of English football for the first time in their history.

He then joined the coaching staff at Nottingham Forest, before taking the managerial job at Crawley Town who had just been promoted to League One. But after two months and not being in charge of a single game he quit to return to Nottingham Forest as manager.

He wasn’t doing too badly, win percentage just under 40% and on the brink of the play-off places he was sacked after a 4-2 victory over Leeds United.

Could he be the man to inspire Wolves to some form of recovery this season? The 55-year-old according to wikipedia anyway was born in Wolverhampton and is a Wanderers fan so at least would understand the connection between the club and its fans?
