Comment: Steve Morgan's missed a trick. Yesterday’s developments brought a sad but somewhat inevitable end to a tenure which promised so much but, ultimately, fell short of expectations.
Sad because Morgan showed good intentions when he purchased Wolves from Sir Jack Hayward back in 2007. Inevitable because Wolves have ended up back where they started. It hasn’t all been bad. Far from it, in fact.
When the Liverpudlian arrived at Molineux there was good reason for optimism. Wolves had just, quite unexpectedly, finished fifth in the Championship before going out to local rivals West Brom in the lottery that is the Championship play-offs. Manager Mick McCarthy had assembled a young, ambitious team and it was clear that with a few additions in the right places the club could become serious promotion contenders. But it wasn’t to be. At least, not immediately.
Morgan’s first season at the helm was not without controversy. McCarthy’s flirtation with the vacant South Korea job and the crescendo of fan outrage, partly caused by the continual omission of new signing Freddy Eastwood. That proved to be a distraction from the task at hand, with Wolves finishing outside the play-off places. Steve Morgan with Manager Mick McCarthy (left) when he bought Wolves in 2007. Nevertheless, the owner backed his manager for another season and he was rewarded as McCarthy guided the club to the Premier League, keeping them there for three consecutive seasons.
But it was in the last of those three Premier League seasons that the first chinks in the Morgan were exposed. Tuesday 31 January 2012, to be exact. A few weeks before, he had described the club’s league position as unacceptable and demanded improvement. But at a time when his manager needed support and reassurance, Morgan decided to take matters into his own hands. Following a 3-0 home defeat against Liverpool, a result which left Wolves second from bottom after an 11 game winless run, Morgan entered the dressing room and lambasted the players. Owners can do as they please – it is, after all, their club. But Morgan’s actions severely undermined the authority of his manager – and, let’s face it, his relationship with the fans was never the same again.
A few weeks later, McCarthy was sacked following a humiliating 5–1 drubbing at the hands of Albion. Yes, Morgan was merciless in his approach, but many would argue that Mick had outstayed his welcome by this point. It wasn’t so much the decision, more the timing of it that was utterly bizarre. Little did we know that his poor timing would be a sign of things to come. Three failed appointments later – Terry Connor, Ståle Solbakken and Dean Saunders – and Wolves found themselves in League One for the first time in 24 years. Fortunately the drop to the third tier saw the arrival of Kenny Jackett and, subsequently, Wolves won the division at a canter. The past couple of seasons have seen Wolves make real progress in the wake of consecutive relegations, in which the chairman was so heavily implicated.
They have worked tremendously hard both on and off the pitch to build bridges, with supporters left disillusioned by its shameful decline. However, many supporters have since lost faith with Morgan’s direction, principally the lack of significant investment in the playing side. More on 'Wolves for sale'. And what began as a slight concern at the start of the season has become a torrent of abuse with angry Wolves fans letting rip at Morgan prior to Saturday’s game at Deepdale. The timing of this announcement comes at a pretty rough time for Wolves, as they look to recover from what has been a turbulent start to the season.
But let’s look at the positives. Morgan has laid the foundations for a new owner to come in and catapult Wolves to the next level.
The state-of-art training facilities at Compton Park and the club’s Category One academy status will pay dividends for years to come, and Wolves are on a much better financial footing than when Morgan arrived. To his credit, Morgan has been a generous custodian who’s made a point of introducing a policy in line with the club's tradition of bringing through the best young players available to them.
Yet his eight-year reign has been overshadowed by his poor decision-making and typical stubbornness, which has led to embarrassing consequences. But, perhaps, his biggest mistake was his failure to appoint a football man to board, who could help refine his young and hungry policy and offer advice on managerial appointments. What do you think. Share your thoughts and join the discussion. Perhaps then we could have avoided the ignominy of the infamous ‘double drop. So thanks, Steve.
It was good – really good – for a while, but many of us will look back and think about might have been, rather than what was.
