Now that the dust has begun to settle around Wolverhampton Wanderers, we are asking was it the right decision to sack the boss?
On the one hand, Saunders has had 20 games in charge and was the captain of the ship as Wolves sank without trace on the final day of the season as League One football for next season was confirmed with a whimper at Brighton.
But did the buck really stop with him? Did he deserve the chop?
Our recent poll asked just what was the turning point for Wolves and a massive 86% point towards fifteen months ago when Morgan and Moxey sacked Mick McCarthy (43%) and Terry Connor was named boss after a shambolic managerial hunt came to an end without a new face walking in through the door (43%).
Only 2% thought the appointment of Stale Solbakken was the turning point, while 12% pointed the finger firmly at Saunders.
Saunders went two months without a win when he first took over, form that saw us slip from 17th to 23rd, a run of five wins in eight saw Wolves season revive somewhat only for a hideous injury crisis to strike leaving us with three consecutive defeats.
Would we have stayed up if it wasn’t for the injuries? Was momentum on our side or was it just short and brief decent run of form?
If you think Saunders should have been given the benefit of the doubt vote no in our poll to the right of this forum, if you think it was the right decision to sack him, vote yes.
