Over five-and-a-half years, 270 games, the Championship title and three successive seasons in the Premier League.
Mick McCarthy quite frankly was the most successful manager Molineux has seen in over 30 years.
He was a likeable guy, always open and honest, sometimes to his detriment, but you couldn’t fault his commitment and passion to the cause.
Despite everything he had achieved, mounting pressure from the more vocal part of the fan base had built so much pressure on McCarthy that following the 5-1 defeat to West Brom, Steve Morgan ended a relationship that had brought this club so much.
McCarthy has always split the fans, for years we’ve written countless articles about whether he should go or not. Even after the poor recent form fans were still divided, the majority of comments might have been anti-McCarthy, but our current poll shows he still had plenty of support, with only a majority of 57% thinking it was right to sack him.
But what’s done is done and while we can all argue over what was right and wrong, the man himself has left Molineux just as impeccably as he arrived there.
He went around and shock everyone by the hand before he left, the personal touch to the very end, before releasing a statement.
‘I just want to thank everyone for what has been nearly six wonderful years, I feel we’ve achieved a lot both for me personally and as a club.’ our Mick told Wolves Official Website.
He added: ‘I’ve had a great working relationship with everybody at the club and would like to thank all those who have contributed to the success that we’ve had, and also to the fans who have supported me through thick and thin.
‘I really feel it is a privilege to have managed such a great club and I’ve had the best of times.
Showing his class he ended his message by adding: ‘I want to send my best wishes to everybody and also to the new guy that comes in.
‘And to everyone – please stay up!’
Wolves Official Website have put together a great free video of Mick’s time at Molineux, some fantastic quotes and some fantastic memories.
MM might not stand for Merlin the Magician, but looking back, Moxey and Morgan will do well to magic up someone who can bring as much entertainment over the next 5-and-a-half years to Molineux.
Thanks for the memories Mick.
