This article will not make much sense if you read it on its own, so please, read part one first!!
So, easing towards a conclusion of point..
If I worked in a warehouse and my boss said, okay, there’s thirty two boxes there.
I don’t wanna walk in in the morning and see any more than eight left off the van, I would say fair play. If he said he would be angry McAngry the next morning if he came in and found any more than four boxes I might feel somewhat pressured.
Let’s cast our mind back to The Sun headline. EASY. As in, of course, England, Algeria, Slovenia and Yanks. And in all reality, of all qualifying or tournament groups, that really was the easiest we have faced in living memory.
We scraped through in second place and then got humiliated by our friends The Germans.
Effectively, the boss walked in the next morning, and there were fifteen boxes on the floor and Big Fab was sat in one with an England hat balanced all funny on his head, he had a chalk board in his hand with a picture of Big Wayne being wheeled into a mental hospital and he was slowly muttering to himself. He still has a job.
I would love to look back and cherish the day we fired Glenn Hoddle but we were sadly going to let that debacle continue.
Perhaps it was a blessing from Irene, otherwise The Artist Known As God that big Glenn had the cheek to quit but it truly was the greatest of blessings.
I will be completely honest, I was advocating 100% for Paul Ince at the time, and was not thrilled when Mick got the job, but I can’t hold my hands up any higher to say I was wrong.
The job the big fella has done over the course of the past four years has been nothing short of a revelation.
The real change for me came when Morgan took control of the steering wheel- it amazes me that on the pages of the glorious wooden spoon otherwise known as the Express & Star that Morgan, The Mox and still Mick, continue to receive stick- they have transformed our club from top to bottom.
Even the tea lady is probably young these days and has to run a lap if she doesn’t put enough sugar in the tea.
These three saw the ills of the culture that was threatening to kill our club. The proper Charlie’s swanning in for the last big pay check.
It was the ruin of us. The blue print was laid out, we went young and hungry and look at the results. We did peak too soon, but the proof is in the pudding and look where the club is now. We actually stayed up at a canter, and with all the plans in place, pending results, a 36,000 seater stadium, a 50,000 seater stadium in maybe four or five years time? We are the third biggest spenders this summer. We still
ave one of the youngest squads in the division, the squad is packed with Internationals throughout, and to boot, we have several on the peripheral- if Emile Heskey can play for England so can I?
Well, if I can, then Matt Jarvis & Michael Kightly can too. If we sign Mancienne from Chelsea (I would happily pay £5 million) he will be a regular within three years.
With the club in the right financial hands, the hands of the right manager, with one of the most exciting young squads
round, the expansion plans, the reality we can establish ourselves as a top ten, top six(?) side perhaps in five years time- my friends- for years we have bemoaned our luck, our managers, our owners, in these hands, it really could be time to witness the Second Coming of Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club.
Enjoy & Embrace.
